Man bites man

 In Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, two men were arguing about a golf game.  At the climax of the discussion, one of them bit the other's nose off.  "The nose was not found," the AP tells us laconically.  Last September there was a similar sports-related incident when the CEO of Beyond Meat, a "plant-based meat company," bit off the nose of another man after a football game.  In this case, a driving dispute may have kicked it off.  If I search "nose bitten off" am I going to find dozens of these things?

A 72-year-old woman in Mannheim, Germany, has been charged with attempted manslaughter for switching off the ventilator of her 79-year-old hospital roommate, twice.  The machine's noise was bothering her.  The victim was revived and is in intensive care.

George Takei said he feels "sullied" by the right-wing extremist posts from specimens like Matt Gaetz and Donald Trump, Jr., which are arriving unsought in his Twitter feed.  He's not alone.  Thousands of others are having the same problem.  Worse, they are receiving praise of Elon Musk and crummy Tesla commercials.  And now they can look forward to the commentary of Daily Stormer founder Andrew Anglin, reinstated after nine years.  Could it be a clever ploy to empty Twitter of its last sane account holders?

Meanwhile at Ministry of Truth Social, Constitutional scholar Donald Trump, Sr., is still insisting that the 2020 election involved so much fraud that it actually broke the Constitution.  "A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution."  School's out!  That's it, I'm tearing the tag off my mattress.

Keep it up.  Jack Smith is waiting.

Here's the story of a ten-year-old boy in Milwaukee with a history of torturing animals, talking to imaginary people and a "concerning" diagnosis from a psychiatrist.  None of this prevented him from obtaining a gun and shooting his mother in the face when she refused to buy him a VR headset on Amazon.  He apologized to his grandmother and then asked if his package had arrived.  Happy holidays.

Even Nazis have to eat.  You want to see Nick Fuentes get into a food-flinging fight at In-N-Out Burger in Los Angeles?  Be my guest.

On Monday Austin Harrouf goes on trial for killing two people and chewing the face of one of them six years ago.  The judge must decide if he was insane or just another Floridian.
