Very cool. Good for Canada too - definitely an advantage to have internet connections to countries besides the US.

I've been happily using this cordless vacuum since 2015

1 Comment

I bought this Black+Decker Dustbuster cordless vacuum in 2015, and it's the best I've owned. All the other cordless vacs I've owned had batteries that conked out after a year or less, but the battery in this one is still working. — Read the rest

I'd be tired by now. Good work. That's a lot of vacuuming.

Where in the world do you get arrested for catcalling?

Portugal. Peru did it first. The UK has just passed a similar law, I believe.

Not all of the UK. If memory serves correctly, the change is that the Nottingham police now treat catcalling as a hate crime.

Given it's a half-remembered article I read probably in Portuguese (and my Portuguese isn't the best), I strongly suspect your recollection is more accurate than mine here :)

No you don't. I was only catcalled for the first time at age 30, and it still sucked. It's not about beauty, it's about power. Now if only it were actually the power to attract cats...

Yeah, no, you don't. The times I've been catcalled it was degrading and gross. ("Hey, bitch, get back here and suck my dick" is not flattering. Also, I am fat and middle-aged, and the times I've been catcalled I was wearing sweats and a winter coat. It has nothing to do with looks, and everything to do with reminding you that, to some men, you are not a human being.)
