Interesting in that, flipping it around, there doesn't appear to be another country with as large a disparity.

Armenia is #1 with 55% women:

Depends on if they get convicted or not.

They really started going insane in the 90s with the whole "Hillary Clinton murdered Vince Foster" thing, and it accelerated with the completely ignorant "Tea Party" movement in the 2010s.

What we're seeing now is just the logical conclusion of that insanity.

As the scale increases, it merits further discussion.

Searching "hajj" and sorting by new, the stories went 14 dead, then 300, then 550, then "hundreds" and now over 1,000.

But it's not exactly the same story each time.

It would be like saying we shouldn't allow re-posts every time Israel kills innocent Palestinians.

Reported as a duplicate, but I'm not seeing the original copy. Searched "1,000", sorted by new, this is the only one I see.

Kind of led me down a rabbit hole...

Looks like there's a 3 volume DVD set of the Fleischer Studios cartoons + the Famous s Studios cartoons all in black and white.

Then there's a 3 volume Blu Ray set of the Famous Studios color cartoons running to the end of the 40s.

So with 6 sets you get all the original Popeye shorts from 1933 to 1949(!)

A 6th day at 40% pay? Yeah, that's a big "no."

OTOH... a 40 hour week, for the same pay, spread across 6 days wouldn't be awful.

Mon - 7 hours.
Tue - 7 hours.
Wed - 7 hours.
Thur - 7 hours.
Fri - 6 hours.
Sat - 6 hours.

Or however you want to arrange it:

Mon - 5 hours.
Tue - 5 hours.
Wed - 7 hours.
Thur - 7 hours.
Fri - 8 hours.
Sat - 8 hours.

Mon - 6 hours.
Tue - 6 hours.
Wed - 6 hours.
Thur - 6 hours.
Fri - 8 hours.
Sat - 8 hours.

I also highly reccomend the Myth books by Robert Aspirin.

8-1 with Thomas the dissent.

“The court and government do not point to a single historical law revoking a citizen’s Second Amendment right based on possible interpersonal violence,” Thomas wrote. “Yet, in the interest of ensuring the Government can regulate one subset of society, today’s decision puts at risk the Second Amendment rights of many more.”
