Was watching an episode of the new DuckTales and the poster in the background caught my attention.  :doge

Yeah I have dual citizenship which I indicated on the citizenship portion of my BofA checking account application...about 10 fucking years ago. Then after 9 years they put an immediate freeze on my account. This was at the end of the month when rent was due. Thankfully my landlord was understanding and didn't hit me with a late fee.

Then of course I closed my checking/savings account with them and moved it all to a credit union.

UPDATED STATEMENT:
"Like all financial institutions, we’re required by law to maintain complete and accurate records for all of our customers and may periodically request information as required by law and regulation. This is not unique to Bank of America.  This type of outreach is nothing new and the information must be up to date. Therefore we periodically reach out to customers, which is what we did in this case.

Over time, we reach out to all customers to verify their information, not only specific customers. If we don’t hear from a customer in response to our outreach, as a last resort, we may restrict the account until we can confirm it is in compliance with regulatory requirements."


I hope they enjoy the freshly roasted scent of a class action lawsuit.

Once I hired a junk removal company to clear out my garage of all the things I didn’t want or need. It cost like a couple hundred dollars and took an afternoon. When I moved from a large house to a small house I had a garage sale like event except everything was free and everything was gone within an hour. What I’m saying is hopefully my family props me up on the side of the road with a “free” sign.

there is no law that says you must be buried in a coffin in the UK. In fact, the body of the deceased does not have to be disposed of in a casket, coffin, or covered by a funeral shroud. These are all traditions. What the law does state is that it is indeed an offence to expose a dead body near a public highway. Exposure of a dead body in a public place or by a highway is an outrage to public decency. The body of the deceased must be covered in public. The way you choose to cover the body is entirely up to you however.

In seeking permission for his court challenge in 2007, the High Court ruled that "the burning of dead bodies in the open air is not necessarily unlawful" and allowed Ghai to proceed. In February 2010, the Court of Appeal ruled that, as long as open air pyres took place within a structure of some sort, that the practice would be legal under the existing Act . . .

I'm really glad legal systems have to work stuff like this out.

Baker currently sells 500 to 1,000 diapers, which retail for $18 apiece, each month. “There's not a single state that I don't ship to,” Baker said.
Quote
In wealthy cities like San Francisco, chickens have even become an unlikely status symbol, with poultry owners going to unimaginable lengths to care for their pets. As The Washington Post reported in March, certain chicken owners have hired “chicken whisperers” to consult on their pets’ comfort (to the tune of $225 per hour). These nouveau livestock enthusiasts have also been known to invest in personal chefs for their birds, and some have even installed smartphone-enabled, motion-detecting coops that control ventilation, temperature, lighting, and security from afar (ballpark cost: $20,000).

“We spend an insane amount of money. We thought we’d feed them leftovers, but our chickens end up eating grilled salmon, steak, fresh lettuce and organic watermelon,” one chicken owner, Amina Azhar-Graham, told the Post.

And where indoor chickens go, diapers follow. Some chickens can be housebroken, but such is not an easy task, leaving poultry parents in densely populated areas to have to find ways to take care of the inevitable.

Chicken diapers work differently depending on the brand. Connecticut resident Traci Torres, the owner of My Pet Chicken, said that some of her diapers have velcroed-in liners that owners remove once soiled — usually around two to three times per day — and then replace with another liner. Other diapers are moisture-resistant, so that owners can simply remove the whole diaper, wipe out the excreta, and throw it in the wash. Other diapers are more lo-fi, recommending that a person place a paper towel inside the diaper and simply remove it once sullied. Most chicken diapers are machine washable and intended to endure for months (the industry is nothing if not sustainable).
Quote
Pampered Poultry pricepoint of $18 per diaper is fairly standard. Purely Poultry’s zebra, daisy, and pink camo designs go for around $17, while My Pet Chicken offers custom-made diapers for $30. FeatherWear retails their denim “FlockSuits” — premium diapers that are pitched as “Levi Strauss meets Calvin Klein” for nearly $38.

“The market is enormous and there’s lots of competition,” Traci Torres, the owner of My Pet Chicken, told The Outline.

Torres sold her first diaper in December 2007 after she kept getting phone calls out of the blue requesting them. Though Torres designs most of the diapers herself, she hired a seamstress to start sewing them; she estimates that she’s sold more than 5,000 diapers.
Quote
Baker has begun selling another upscale chicken accessory, this one without much of a function — the chicken dress. She currently offers $15 blue-or-purple tutus alongside more upscale nightgowns marketed “for the fashion-conscious hen.” Baker estimates that chicken dresses comprise 10 percent of her business, amounting to about 100 dresses sold per month. “You [used to] put a dress on your chihuahua. Now people are putting a dress on their chicken,” Baker said.
Quote
In the course of reporting this piece, The Outline contacted nearly a dozen chicken-diaper and-saddle vendors to ask about their sales figures. The numbers ranged from a dozen per year to nearly ten thousand — Colorado-based Chicken Armor, for instance, has sold around 50,000 saddles since its launch in 2011.

But even Baker doesn’t think any of this would have happened if chicken owners weren’t so eager to dress their pets up for social media photo shoots

this is what Assi was warning us about

I had the full set of these back then and thought they were super cool, although I remember being confused about the relationship between Saddam Hussein and King Hussein. The card makers could have thrown a "no relation" in there to clear things up, we didn't have Wikipedia.

My family's money was made in the arms industry so there was all sorts of Desert Shield and Desert Storm merch in the house back then (including these cards).

I recall a vague "we're fighting against fascism again" vibe in a lot of it (for example showing that the U.S. and USSR were both contributing to the fight), which in retrospect presaged a lot of the Iraq War propaganda that would come later.
