[RT] At half the cost of their human counterparts, sex worker robots at a Swiss brothel are becoming the choice of hard-up punters. One expert claims sex with a robo-doll is a fetish among men, just like a preference for leather.
The beautiful and civilized Swiss city of Lucerne is renowned for its setting below snow-capped mountain peaks on the banks of Lake Lucerne, with its medieval architecture, picturesque Altstadt (Old Town) and brothel full of sex robots instead of real hookers.
That’s right, the nation that brought us cuckoo clocks and Toblerone chocolate has gone hi-tech in the sex industry with Lucerne brothel, Arsenal 51 (I don’t know either), introducing 90 Swiss francs ($90) an hour sessions with their sort-of real-looking love mannequins for those punters who fancy a little less conversation, a little more action, as Elvis would put it.
Every one of these sexbot articles is filled with creepy looking sex dolls. If you take a creepy looking sex doll and give it anima you just have a moving creepy looking sex doll. Maybe if they add tentacles and deploy them in Japan they won't mind but pretty much everyone else is going to stay away.

So you're saying there's a chance that a "plausible" one-in-a-billion shot at realising the thing's value might -- if I've got the zeros right (which I probably haven't) -- be worth something close to US total debt? Oughtta make for some interesting hijinks down here, at least.
[FOXNEWS] A large flock of aggressive wild turkeys appears to be exacting some Thanksgiving Dire Revenge, having swooped down out of nowhere on a once-tranquil New Jersey 55-and-over community that is now being terrorized by the unwelcome invaders.
No one appears to be happy that the mean birds ‐ as many as 60 of them ‐ have muscled in on Holiday City in Toms River and become a gobbling nuisance, according to reports.
"The turkeys are taking over," one resident told News 12 New Jersey. "It’s like an infestation."
The woman said people think it’s a laughing matter but it’s serious.
"When I can’t get out of my house to get in the car because they won’t go away and you can’t get them to go away and they go to bite you, yes, it’s a problem," she told the station.
The station reported that the turkeys have broken windows in Holiday City while WABC-TV reported being told by another resident Donna Scala that the turkeys were up on roofs, pecking away.
"Our brand-new vehicles? They're pecking at our vehicles," she told the station. "All I'm looking for is that they be moved. Put them in a big property, hundreds of acres of property."
That might be easier said than done.
Despite fielding a number of complaints, the local animal control office can't do anything about the turkeys due to state regulations.
"It's nuisance wildlife we are not licensed to trap, relocate, or as they use the word, harass the turkeys or any wildlife, for that matter, that's a nuisance," Toms River Animal Control’s Richard Barbosa told WABC.
News 12 reported being told that state wildlife officials were aware of the situation but that was all they said.
The wild turkeys weigh between 16 and 24 pounds and can run up to 20 miles per hour.
[NYPOST] Amazon has pulled an offensive shirt emblazoned with "Daddy’s Little Slut," thanks to some good old-fashioned Twitter shaming ‐ but allowed its third party seller to continue hawking other off-color items.
The original $18 shirt sold by OnlyBabyCare started going viral Friday morning, as images of the shocking slogan circulated Twitter. It’s been available on Amazon since June, with a description claiming it was "suitable" for "playing outside, birthday party, baby shower, baptism," among other family friendly activities.
KIMBERLEY, South Africa (Reuters) - The first South African project to bring illegal miners into the formal fold has been plagued by violence in diamond capital Kimberley, dealing a major blow to national efforts to stem a booming illicit trade. Die Groot Hole (The Big Hole) and town of Kimberley in the background. The mine was closed around the WW1 time frame and has not reopened. It is surrounded by a modern fence, warning signs, sensors and cams. 'Room with a View' - Protea Hotel by Marriott Kimberley
The project was launched 18 months ago in Kimberley, the site of a 19th-century diamond rush that lured fortune-seekers from the world over. Mine owners granted more than 800 unlicensed, or informal, small-scale miners the right to legally mine around 1,500 acres of diamond-rich waste fields.
The aim of the government-backed scheme was to curb illegal mining and black-market trade of diamonds, and serve as a blueprint for future attempts elsewhere in the country, not only in the diamond sector, but also potentially manganese, gold and chrome.
However the project has been hit by violence, with informal miners not included in the scheme attacking infrastructure and even members of the newly licensed cooperative, according to mine owner Ekapa Minerals which is running the initiative.
Oleg Sokolov, a 63-year-old history lecturer who received La Belle France's Legion d'Honneur in 2003, was arrested on Saturday on suspicion of murder after he was hauled out of the icy Moika River with a backpack containing a woman's arms. "He had a disarming personality"
"He has admitted his guilt," Sokolov's lawyer Alexander Pochuev said, adding he regretted what he had done and was now cooperating with police.
Sokolov was reportedly drunk and fell in as he tried to dispose of body parts.
After getting rid of the body, he reportedly planned to commit suicide at the Peter and Paul Fortress, one of the former imperial capital's most famous landmarks, dressed as Napoleon.
HONG KONG (Reuters) - Hong Kong police shot and wounded one protester who hospital officials said was in critical condition on Monday as the Chinese-ruled territory spiraled into rare weekday violence in the 24th straight week of pro-democracy unrest.
[FoxNews] Data from a defunct neo-Nazi website leaked online last week, potentially revealing the personal information of hundreds of extremists, some of whom have been linked to acts of terrorism, according to reports.
The data, which comprised the contents of the former website “Iron March,” was posted by the user “anti-data” on archive.org.
Contents of the leak made it possible to obtain match usernames with registered emails, IP addresses, forum posts and direct messages, according to the open-source journalism website Bellingcat, which first flagged the leak.
“Iron March” was founded in 2011 by Russian nationalist Alexander “Slavros” Mukhitdinov. It has been used by an organizational tool by multiple extremist groups, including Atomwaffen Division (AWD), a U.S.-based group that has been tied to at least half a dozen murders and multiple acts of violence over the past few years.
Chats from the leak suggested that the website attracted users from around the world who shared material and offered support to each other.
Its users were closely affiliated with the ideas and publications of James Mason, an American neo-Nazi who has been involved in white-supremacy movements since the 1960s, The Guardian reported.
This opens so many questions.

This has to be fake news or partially true news as it would kill YouTube almost instantly. More likely they are creating a non-commercial version with a new name and will force a migration of those that don't make money.
My wife is a psychotherapist for Kaiser
I can tell you that everything the Kaiser spokeshole said was pure crap
Kaiser want to eliminate pensions for retiree psychologists and cut their benefits package
The backlog of patients awaiting access to a therapist is 6 to 8 weeks after waiting 4 to 6 weeks to get an initial intake appointment
The latest contract proposal from Kaiser does not even match cost of living and contains no provisions for periodic cost of living increases
[National Review] The early Trump administration batted down warnings from career U.S. diplomats who warned that some hardline immigration policies could have dangerous national security consequences, according to diplomatic cables released by Senate Democrats Thursday. We need these people for the garden and the silver.
Some diplomats, including those at the U.S. Embassies in El Salvador, Honduras and Haiti, were concerned that the administration’s plan to end the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) program for undocumented immigrants would cause a spike in transnational crime and illegal immigration, and would damage the relationship between the U.S. and Latin America and the Caribbean.
"A sudden termination of TPS for El Salvador would undermine additional cooperation to tackle the root causes of illegal migration and overwhelm the country’s ability to absorb the refugees," then-U.S. Ambassador Jean Elizabeth Manes wrote to Washington, D.C. in July, 2017.
Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Thomas Shannon objected even more strenuously to ending the program for the three countries.
[FoxNews] President Trump announced Friday he will select the winners in the months’ old #MAGACHALLENGE as he retweeted a video posted by a supporter who rapped his love for the president and challenged others to do likewise.
Trump supporters got to work right away. Below are some samples.

[MYSANANTONIO] Over 840,000 of the car crashes that occur on U.S. roadways each year can be traced back to a problem area with which all drivers have experience: the blind spots caused by the A-frame of a car's structure.
Despite over a century of constant improvements to automobile, there's still no perfect fix for blind spots that the auto industry has uniformly accepted. But that might be about to change thanks to an ingenious solution from an unlikely engineering hero who can't even drive.
Alaina Gassler, 14, of West Grove, Pennsylvania, has designed a technology that makes the A-frame pillars of a car "see-through" by using projectors that cast images of what's really behind them onto their surfaces.
Continued on Page 49
A-Frame refers to front suspension parts; really kind of hard to steer if you are down there, bouncing off the pavement; A-Piller, B-Piller, ect are the norms for referrting to the structural piese that keep the roof up off the belt line..... ( later stated in the pice, sort of)
That's exactly what happened to me last week. I'm passing on the right and at the precise moment when my front bumper was even with her rear door, when she decides to switch into my lane without using her blinkers (natch). I must have missed her car (or she missing my car) by 1/2 an inch.
Even if we didn't have high tech solutions, it would seem to me that the ceiling supports could be made far thinner with stronger materials if this was a serious problem, or even move the supports forward so that they don't have issues with the coverage of the side-view mirrors.
[Al Jazeera] Former Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak will find out on Monday whether he has to enter his defence to charges he siphoned millions of ringgit into his personal bank accounts, in the first of a series of trials related to the multibillion dollar corruption scandal at state fund 1MDB.

If the judge decides the prosecution has established a prima facie case, 66-year-old Najib will need to enter his defence. If not, he will walk free.
