Labour MP holds up debate until squeamish Tory says ‘tampon’

Cash had been calling them “these products” throughout the debate over a proposed amendment to the Finance Bill to renegotiate the 5% “tampon tax” imposed on them because they are “luxury” goods. He avoided saying the term for an hour and 15 minutes — and then they kept talking about it for about another hour.

I don’t know  what’s more ridiculous: that you can’t say tampon, that  they’re arguing about the tax on it, that they’re arguing about not saying tampon, or that it’s called tampongate. Ugh.

Ameesha Patel and Kushal Tandon have an insane Twitter meltdown over national anthem

Offered without much analysis. I don’t know whether to cry, to facepalm, or do what.
Kushal, your 15 seconds are over. Or, was it 3 months? Or 2 months?

Ameesha, that monthlies trick is the cheapest trick in the book, because it’s something that can’t be verified. Chill.

Edited to add: that 16% battery made me cringe. Why aren’t you glued to the wall, dude?

Aquafina Admits It’s Just Tap Water | Inverse

File to: “Obviously. What kind of idiot do you take me for?” The world’s biggest bottled water brand is going to start admitting that it comes from the exact same source as the tap water disdained by snobs.

Sigh.

Shiba becomes an ostrich

They crack me up.
Wow.

An old personal click.

Intranet.

Just read and decide.
Internet or internet it seems. I don’t know where to go get rid of my slumber.

“Effective with this sentence, Wired News will no longer capitalize the “I” in internet.
At the same time, Web becomes web and Net becomes net. Why? The simple answer is because there is no earthly reason to capitalize any of these words. Actually, there never was.”

Protesting with lollipops

I’m too sleepy to make the connection between the android version, Modi, Anandi Patel, and Garba. But I guess someone can come up with something.

Aunt Sues Nephew for $127,000 Over Forced Hug — NYMag

A Connecticut jury is being asked to render a verdict in the case of an allegedly recklessly joyful 8-year-old over his deployment of “unreasonably forceful” affection toward his aunt (who, of course, lives in Manhattan).

I don’t have any words.

MP govt forms panel of astrologers to pacify ‘Gods’ and ‘Grahas’ | bhopal | Hindustan Times

I have half a mind to give up on this blog, because the purpose is entirely lost. Everything you read is just ridiculous.

“The Guru Chandal Yogam (mystic power) is considered to be inauspicious one, and is coinciding with Simhastha fair. It is believed that major tragedy might occur during this phase. Hence the state has constituted a committee of nine astrologers to find a way out for peaceful commencement of the Simhastha fair,” said Diwakar Vasudev Natu, the president of Simhastha mela authority.

Kids, toddlers, and lessons

Don’t intend to be preachy, but this cracked me up.

As a parent, we want to raise our children to know they are special, they are brave, they are strong, they are powerful, they can achieve anything and that they are loved no matter what. This stuff is important. But in terms of practical, real-life situations, we should be doing better. We owe our children this. So, take a pause from “Kenzylee Shastasprite, you’re the most sparkly snowflake and can be president one day” and teach your kids what really matters. They’ll thank you for it one day.

The other one that gives me a lot of happiness is Grant Snider’s beautiful piece on life with a toddler. Just click, you won’t regret it. I’ve been subjected to this many times by my nieces. Snippet:
