High maintenance beetotch should not leave the amazing technologicaly based maintenance infrastructure that makes decadent, high maintenance beeotchery possible.
"There wasn't a thing on the table that I could eat" said a frustrated Love. "They kept putting food in front of me, but I kept trying to tell them that I was a vegan. I pointed to the food and said it really loudly and slowly 'vegan, veee-gaaan' but they didn't seem to understand. They just kept encouraging me to eat."
Love's lack of Mongolian language skills coupled with the families lack of English language skills provided the perfect environment for a cultural misunderstanding to take place. And before long the Mongolian family had come to understand that "vegan" meant "sick" and quickly began to set out to find a remedy for their guest's illness
Of course, in keeping with a general policy of cluelessness, our heroine has learned nothing.
"I'm not going back to Mongolia, I can tell you that for sure, but I'm seriously looking at some remote parts of Africa for next summer."

This is rich.
Evil rightwing asshat comments on the Boots and Sabers blog, advocating the assasination of teachers and, amongst other things, speaking highly of the Columbine killers.
......Kids like Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold members of the Young Republicans club at Columbine. They knew how to deal with the overpaid teacher union thugs. One shot at a time! Too bad the liberals rip them; they were heroes and should be remembered that way.â€
What an unspeakably vile comment!
Well, this comment was reported to the police by a teacher who makes it his biddness to keep tabs on scary and sketchy sites like Boots and Sabers.
The police responded, and the Boots and Sabers bloggers, hoping no doubt to prevent mayhem, provided the police with the trolls IP address.
'Right wing wacko' turns out to be the former president of the local teachers union, (or as he might say, an "overpaid teachers union thug") most likely trolling as an agent provocatuer. His 'sockpuppet' is a sub literate soldier who denigrates teachers.
The whole story is at Boots and Sabers. It should be noted that the B&S guys, while, working with the police on this, are expressing misgivings about the fact that the loon is being locked up.
It is apparant that the fellow is not a threat, just lying leftie scum, which is not a crime any more than it is to be a truthful nerdy right wing loon (for which there is much rejoicing!).
So, given the facts do you think they were right to give out the IP addy? If not why not? Also, do you think the teacher should be incarcerated for internet hijinks? Why or why not?
