Years ago I worked as a welder in the North US and worked with gents of all persuasions and we would all go to the pub across the street from the plant and I would end up drinking and buying all flavors of liquors because I worked with Mexicans, Germans, Dutch, etc.. Was an interesting experience!
I think I passed out drunk once, after a three-legged pub-crawl (well, thirteen-legged if I remember correctly, they were twelve of us ties together IIRC) at university. But I had got back to the girlfriends room first, much to her annoyance.
But guess who carried the razor?

I saw this on Reddit yesterday, the original interview was on Russia Today. RT is pretty much a pro-Russia propaganda machine, it tends to be pro-Arab also, so was popular with people when I lived over there.
So either he's nuts, or we've had regular visits from aliens, or something else.
The Canadians may be this very minute may be planning a full scale attack on New Hampshire because they suspect nuclear weapons there, and a blonde haired Sasquatch space alien held in some New Hampshire jail, who knows what they will do half cocked.
Now I know the national guard of New Hampshire can probably handle the combined military of Canada, but why have all that drama, UK must get involved now.
Above Top Secret is serious, but it is also the go-to site for conspiracy nutters. Do you remember the TV show The X Files? Mulder and his pals would have visited several times a day. If you look, I am sure you can find "expose reports" that "prove" the Moon landings were hoaxed, that the CIA was behind the 9/11 attacks, and that President Obama is a not-quite human agent of the Greys, programmed to prepare the world for alien invasion.
The scary part is that the people who post such drivel actually believe this.
Get to work and systems are not responding. Get email back up and come to find out the server room temperature control died. So they shut down some of the systems and called the repair man. Minus 9 F out and the server room is too hot! We need to put a vent to outside into the room. (I know that would not work for a multitude of reasons.)
So two of my database servers are offline including our failover.
Think I will take a long break.
