    That's weird. The stated explanation also makes no sense. Why mail anything at all?

    I’d be checking them for bubonic plague.

    Is this epidemic of 'Karens' real?

    Is there really so much insanity going on in the US?
    And does high fructose syrup or other malnutrition have anything to do with the phenomenon?

    We used to call them "shrews". I guess "Karen" is more PC.

    Looks staged to me.

    It does.
    But still, I've encountered some Karens during the last weeks. The german Karens are predominantly male.

    Wade Davis
    An anthropologist's take on things. And if somebody has already posted it, it's worth a second read.

    Isn't he the ethnobotanist who wrote a strange book about voodoo and zombie poison (tetrodotoxin)?

    Probably. I just heard him interviewed on NZ TV and he sounded remarkably sane, so I looked up that article.

    I reflexively shy away from opinions of Wades, Waynes and Dwaynes. But that was a damned good article by Mr. Davis.

    Not sure, seems to have the same misogyny, dressed up as "woke".

    Isn't it about equivalent to "jerk". Why can't there be female jerks?

    Yes, that's the one.



    I remember this book set me off on a whole side chain of reading about voodoo culture, zombies, puffer fish, Haitian history, etc.

    That’s a great article by Davis. I vaguely remember saying on here that The US started to fall when it began channeling Gordon Gecko instead of Dale Carnegie.
