    The WTF? Thread

    A thread for stories that engender the response noted in the title:

    CIA may have poisoned a French town with LSD in 1951.

    Doctors at the time concluded that bread at one of the town's bakeries had become contaminated by ergot, a poisonous fungus that occurs naturally on rye.

    That view remained largely unchallenged until 2009, when an American investigative journalist, Hank Albarelli, revealed a CIA document labelled: "Re: Pont-Saint-Esprit and F.Olson Files. SO Span/France Operation file, inclusive Olson. Intel files. Hand carry to Belin - tell him to see to it that these are buried."

    F. Olson is Frank Olson, a CIA scientist who, at the time of the Pont St Esprit incident, led research for the agency into the drug LSD.

    David Belin, meanwhile, was executive director of the Rockefeller Commission created by the White House in 1975 to investigate abuses carried out worldwide by the CIA.
    The Ulster Catholic Church tries to keep up with its brothers to the south.

    The police, the Catholic Church and the state conspired to cover up a priest's suspected role in one of the worst atrocities of the Northern Ireland Troubles, an investigation has found.

    I know this is a forum for arguing whether waiting staff are to be guaranteed a gratuity, but FFS

    Waiter shot dead for slow service.

    And another knee to the bollocks to those UKIP voting cunts who campaign for the private ownership of lethal weaponry

    Do you reckon

    1. He's only got Mercator projections of the World in Mar a Lago

    2. No one's told him their official language is not English.

    Of course he was a traitor

    He was a collaborator who broadcast Nazi propaganda from Paris trying to promote the myth that everything was normal while his paymasters were enacting the Holocaust.


    ​​​​​​If William Joyce (a foreign national) could be executed for the same thing, by the standards of his time so could Wodehouse.

    How did I miss this one?

    "Activists" want Westminster Abbey not to honour racist criminal anti-Semitic traitor PG Wodehouse.

    https://www.timesofisrael.com/activi...p-g-wodehouse/

    Well.

    I'm on the side of these so-called activists here.

    Not just a traitor.

    An anti-Semitic traitor to boot

    No wonder the worthless cunt was prepared to broadcast Nazi propaganda from Paris in the 40s.

    It's because the worthless piece of filth endorsed their manifesto

    It appears that "Wish.com" requires registration, which is more than I can manage at this time.

    It is part of North America in Risk. I expect US diplomats will use that as evidence that it rightly belongs to us.

    There's a potential coming geopolitical stramash between Canada, Denmark/secessionist Greenland, US, Russia and Norway over shipping lanes and mineral/oil exploration rights as the Arctic melts away to fuck all.
