Trump Goes On ‘Bizarre Rant’ About Dogs

#zrodlo

During an Oval Office event focused on border security, President Donald Trump talked about the effectiveness and abilities of trained dogs, reports.
One of the reporters covering Trump’s Oval Office address via , Aaron Rupar, described it as a “bizarre rant.”
The president was apparently trying to argue that dogs help Border Patrol officers prevent illicit drugs from entering the United States.
Trump began the rant by touting “incredible” new equipment Border Patrol officers are now able to use, but then went on to argue that high-tech equipment is not nearly as effective as dogs are.
“Also, we’re getting dogs. More dogs, believe it or not. I still say — is that still true? There’s nothing [that] replaces a good dog. Is that right? So, we’re spending hundreds of millions of dollars on equipment, but I will say this: It’s not as good as the dogs,” he said.
“We’re getting a lot of dogs,” Trump continued.

North Carolina Bill Could Give Pay Raise To Teachers Who Carry A Gun To School

#zrodlo

A proposed North Carolina law would give a pay boost to teachers who are packing heat.
The School Security Act of 2019 was submitted to the state legislature this week and would give a 5 percent salary boost to teachers who complete basic police training that allows them to carry a gun either openly or in a concealed manner, reported. The bill would also give teachers the power to arrest students just like any other police officer, the report added.
Republicans who introduced the bill said it’s a way to help schools save on costs of resource officers, who are police officers stationed inside the school.
“It’s extremely costly to put a school resource officer in every school… and there’s a great shortage of the number of applicants to law enforcement agencies,” said Republican State Senator Warren Daniel, a sponsor of the bill. “This bill is an attempt to bridge that gap.”

Flat Earth Advocate Claims NASA Has Been Lying To Us For Years

#zrodlo

A flat Earth conspiracy theorist has made the outrageous claim that NASA has been lying to us for years about the Earth being round.
The notion that the earth is as flat as a pancake is an odd one. Yet, the outrageous theory has gained considerable credence in recent years.
Maybe it’s a sign of the times in which we live, where conspiracy theories of every color and hue run riot in a cauldron of psychobabble. The simple fact is, more and more people appear prepared to ignore centuries of learned opinion and scientific study to adopt a theory that is both outlandish and irrational.
The flat Earth theory suggests our planet is a flat and disc-shaped plane surrounded by ice. Why NASA and others have decided to keep this a secret from the general public is anybody’s guess, but in 1956 Samuel Shenton formed the Flat Earth Society and a movement was born.

Former Fast Food Fan Transforms His Health By Drinking A Pint Of Old Urine Every Day



Radical diets and extreme detox plans have been all the rage for quite some time now, but one man believes he has hit gold with his rather peculiar and unusual dietary habit.
British man Fabian Farquharson was once a massive fast food fan. The 37-year-old interior designer from Sheffield traveled a lot during his working day and was forced to eat on the fly. Convenience was the name of the game and fast food chains such as McDonald’s and Burger King played a massive part in Fabian’s diet.
Naturally, all those burgers and fries took their toll, and after perpetually suffering from crippling stomach pains, which baffled his doctor, Fabian began to research alternative therapies as a means to cure his condition.
At first, Fabian ditched the burgers and fries and adopted a “fruitarian” diet, which as the name suggests, entails eating only raw fruit. It worked wonders and Fabian felt a new man almost immediately.
