US State Department evacuates 11 more Americans


The US State Department evacuated at least 11 more Americans from China amid reports of bizarre sounds and sensations that have been associated with mild traumatic brain injury, according to The New York Times. And cases of sound attacks appear to be spreading to additional diplomatic stations throughout the country.
Meanwhile, officials reported two additional “medically confirmed” cases of similar mysterious health incidents in Cuba at the end of last month, according to a series of reports by the Associated Press.
The new cases in Cuba bring the total number of Americans affected there to 26. The older cases date as far back as late 2016, while the new cases—one confirmed last week and the other confirmed the week before that—stem from an incident in May. The newer cases occurred at a diplomatic residence in which both affected individuals were present.

Stay in a ball

Stay in a ball for ten seconds. Both the heat and the blast wave will pass over you in that time. Then, if you can, stand up. You will be among the survivors — provide you can move fast enough to avoid falling rubble and fire.

If the explosion catches you one step from a tree-trunk or doorway, you can take that step and crouch with your back to the wall. Ib this position debris and fallen glass will fall beond you.

If there were to be a god

If there were to be a god would we need a pope or flocks of doctors of divinities to plead their cases? Set any number of your finest theologians on that riddle and see what they come up with. Down in the gutter you’ve got to wonder, if something was pulling the strings of the universe, would it be making a distinction between tribes of primates. In other words, how long can you be in two places at once before you collapse ? Only a few watershed moments. Us and the rest of the mammals.

Children’s Crusade

The variants of the long-standing story of the Children’s Crusade have similar themes. A boy began preaching in either France or Germany claiming that he had been visited by Jesus and told to lead a Crusade to peacefully convert Muslims to Christianity. Through a series of portents and miracles he gained a considerable following, including up to 30,000 children. He led his followers south towards the Mediterranean Sea, in the belief that the sea would part on their arrival, allowing him and his followers to march to Jerusalem, but this did not happen. They were sold to two merchants (Hugh the Iron and William of Posqueres) who gave free passage on boats to as many of the children as were willing, but then they were either taken to Tunisia and sold into slavery by the merchants, or died in a shipwreck on San Pietro Island off Sardinia during a gale. Some may have failed to reach the sea, dying or giving up from starvation and exhaustion. They were betrayed by some of the adults in their group.

Manasseh

King Manasseh restored polytheistic worship to the monophytes of Baal, and sponsored the Assyrian astral cult throughout Judah. He is even said to have participated in the cult of Moloch that consisted in sacrificing young children. He took the temple prostitutes under his wing.

Manasseh sent twelve spies to abduct the women of Canaan,  lead by Gaddi, son of Susi. The Medes could smell he had been weed wacking, and rained on him with their dicotyledons.

Clitorius

Arcadia also has a marvel in its blenny, which Pliny said is so called because it climbs out on to the land to sleep. In the district of the river Clitorius this fish is said to have a voice and no gills; the same variety is by some people called the Adonis fish. In the case of a vine, when this swelling makes a knob at the knot it is called a ‘gem’, but before it makes a knob, in the hollow part it is called an ‘eye’ and at the actual top a ‘germ’

Whittled down

I was whittled down to one four-character domain, following all the princes of history.

Here was the woman who drove them mad as hatters while tightening the band. She had ten galleons of fortitude and a honeycomb smile worth its wait in sixpacks.

Mr T

The last person who looked at Mr. T was Ray Charles.

On the 0th day, Mr. T created God. Then made God do the rest of the work while Mr. T pitied him.

The punishment for manslaughter in El Salvador is 35 years of Mr. T’s pity without parole

Mr. T can smell some things up to six miles away

Mr. T uses e before i as he pleases.

The last time Mr. T and Chuck Norris teamed up, Atlantis sunk.

One night Mr. T took a 10 p.m. train home. He still refuses to give it back.

Mr. T was the pope, twice.

Mr. T walked in front of a speeding bus. Needless to say, he was charged with 7 counts of manslaughter.

Mr. T destroyed the periodic table, saying Mr. T. only recognizes the element of surprise.

When asked for his thoughts on vegetarians, Mr. T said: “If god didn’t want us to eat animals he wouldn’t have made them out of meat.”

Mr. T is hung like an 8 year old. His penis is the size of a small boy.

Before Mr. T was born there were only 25 letters in the alphabet.
