Maldives Coup D’etat: What! Why?

BBC reports that the beautiful Maldives are under siege by the local army dudes. Wait a minute. They have an Army? But they’re going to be underwater right? Soon! The UN says so. So why the army? Seals perhaps. I can see that, but grunts??

We just want to ensure our water rights are upheld and not lost

Maldives army recruits learning to do the “Crawl” with full army load. “It’s so exciting. We’ll be issued with scuba tanks next. But it’s a one shot only issue.” one recruit was heard to say….Geesh.

This just in: Perks of the Royal Family! Like, we want to know…right?

Slide 7 of 15: Queen Elizabeth prefers to be woken up by Scottish bagpipes. A piper plays under her window each morning from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m.Slide 5 of 15: Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla’s clothes are not allowed to be cleaned in washing machines—everything is hand washed. When they sent their clothing away to be cleaned, they found that some items of clothing were kept as souvenirs.

Funny hats of course, and they don’t wash….honestly.

Insane man!

Slide 6 of 15: Prince Charles enjoys cheese and biscuits at the end of many of his meals. Since he’s particular about everything, he insists that they be a certain temperature. The staff keeps a warming pan just to make sure they are hot enough for his liking. (The royal family is <a href='https://www.rd.com/culture/royal-family-autograph-ban/'>not allowed to give out autographs for this very important reason</a>.)You bet. Even this guy finds it funny…our future King. Yup…big laugh there. “What’s for breakfast?”

New Netflix show….”Altered Carbon” a Sci-Fly story:

There are a lot of serious topics covered in Altered Carbon, a new science fiction series from Netflix. The show touches on income inequality and classism. It delves into misogynistic power structures and the nature of identity. It touches on just how much of our morality is driven by the fact that we die and what might happen if death suddenly stopped being an endpoint and, instead, became a minor stopgap in an ultimately immortal life. It even touches on environmental issues in a few sidelong glances…..AND THAT IS WHY I WILL NEVER WATCH IT!

A man’s snowmobile! Sorry to all you “Prius” owners out there.
