Confusing ... very confusing on several levels.

If she is a Vegan, then doesn't that mean she murders plants by eating them?
Also, while his tire may be slightly over the edge on the grass, she is stomping around all over the grass while making the point that grass is a living breathing thing.

Obviously she is mentally ill. He should have been the person 'calling the Police'.
Yeah, some part of her nutrition has been severely neglected. She's on bird legs and has heroin chic down pat. Makes about as much sense as a junkie, too.

Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

 Park rangers are once again reminding the public to give wildlife their space after a woman from Upstate South Carolina was seriously injured by a bison out West.

A press release from the National Park Service says an 83-year-old woman from Greenville, South Carolina was gored by a bison on June 1 in Yellowstone National Park.

"The bison, defending its space, came within a few feet of the woman and lifted her about a foot off the ground with its horns," the release says.  ... The National Desk
A number of yeas ago Vergettte and I were on the island at the Great Salt lake. The Buffalo Roam free on the island. One came walking down the middle of the road like he owned it (Because in his mind he did) Al the traffic pulled off to the side. He walked in front of our Econo box rent a car. I jumped out and kept the car between he and I and managed to get a couple of good shots.

I don't know.....seems to staged for me.  :pondering: Even vegans have to eat plants to survive. I don't think they believe that they're killing living organisms when they chow down on tree bark, grass, and assorted weeds.
 Plus, the guy or someone in his family is recording this. Seems set up.

Robot commits suicide: ‘Depressed’ cyborg hurls itself down flight of stairs

By Peter Cordi
June 29, 2024 1:47 pm


A South Korean robot’s “suicide” is being investigated by the Gumi City Council after the cyborg hurled itself down a two-meter, or six-and-a-half foot, flight of stairs on Wednesday.

The now-defunct robot was appointed a city council officer in August 2023 and was capable of calling an elevator and moving between floors on its own.

A city council official spotted the robot “circling in one spot as if something was there” before the incident occurred, according to French outlet Agence France-Presse. It was later found unresponsive and “smashed” to pieces.

“Pieces have been collected and will be analyzed by the company,” a Gumi City Council official relayed.

Local media headlines circulated following the robot suicide, asking things like “Why did the diligent civil officer do it?” or “Was work too hard” for the cyborg?

Don't let your car tire touch the grass - even of your own front yard - if there's a vegan whackjob in the vicinity.
This is so over-the-top, some suspect it's parody. I don't know.

Karen equates parking on the grass as being the same as assaulting children. 😳😂

In West Virginia, you can get more time for stealing a car than for sexually assaulting a woman.
