Trump is in London.

The Britbongs aren’t taking it well: https://www.stoptrump.org.uk/events/ . The London Museum apparently wants to add the Trump baby blimp to its exhibits.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan – having presided over a large rise in violent crime and said that terrorism is “part and parcel of life in a global city” – has taken a leading role in signalling against Trump.

For his part, Trump is whining about no access to Fox & Friends at his hotel.

I’m not a big fan of the Clown World meme – the previous NPC one was much better, IMO – but it really does fit very well here.

    What the hell is chlorinated chicken block?

    It is a reference to this:

    An investigation has revealed the risk of food poisoning because of “dangerous” practices at a US chicken factory, ahead of trade talks which could force the UK to accept the meat after Brexit.

    The undercover probe by Channel 4 laid bare the danger of cross-contamination with the deadly bacteria salmonella and campylobacter, because of poor standards outlawed by the EU.

    As normal in the US, the chicken is washed in chemicals – a practice banned in the UK under EU law because scientists fear it does not remove bacteria and simply masks safety failures.

    Nevertheless, the US has made clear it will demand the UK accept chemical-washed poultry in any trade deal – and Liam Fox, the international trade secretary, has suggested a ban will be impossible.

    They are taunting us to attack them as Jews, so that they can declare anti-Semitism.

    Or let them unattacked, in which case they can implicitly claim the mantel of being arbiters of morality – “they are the ones who criticize Trump&Co/racists/etc. and not even Trump&Co/etc. dare criticize them back.”

  10. the danger of cross-contamination with the deadly bacteria salmonella and campylobacter, because of poor standards outlawed by the EU

    Incidence of salmonellosis (quick search):
    US (2018) – 16.7 – https://www.statista.com/statistics/379025/us-salmonella-rate-by-state/
    EU (2016) – 20.4 – https://ecdc.europa.eu/sites/portal/files/documents/AER_for_2016-salmonellosis.pdf

    These numbers are of course not complete as many cases go unreported. Also, they vary a lot, reaching 39.8 in Mississippi (not surprising) and 110.0 in Czech Rep. (somewhat surprising).

    Is “Muslimah” Arabic?

    That would be my guess, but I can’t help but notice a similarity to the US term “Latina.” It is almost like they were influenced by the Meso-American invasion of the US.

  19. @songbird

    Is “Muslimah” Arabic?

    Seems like it is:

    Origin
    Arabic muslima, feminine of Muslim.

    https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/muslimah

    I am not quite sure whether the ‘h’ is a stupid “anti-colonialist” gesture like spelling Afrika with a ‘k’ or whether it is a stupid Arab thing the same way they insist on spelling Mecca “Makkah”, Medina “Madinah” and Koran “Quran’.

    The jewish bloc is pretty much the reason that all those other anti white blocs exist. Jews hate Trump because he is not as fanatically anti white as other politicians are expected to be. The fact that Trump is a whore to Israel and perpetually licking Netanyahus ar$e is irrelevant, all politicians do that anyway.

  22. @Hyperborean

    In Arabic writing, vowels are rarely written, instead words ending an “a” (in pronunciation) are spelled either with a silent h or a special letter called the silent t, only used at the ending of words.

    The transliteration often tries to follow the original orthography.

  23. songbird says:
    @Hyperborean

    The word Latino/a always struck me as being intentionally foreign. As I understand it, it is used almost exclusively in the US, and hardly ever in Latin America.

    I can’t help but wonder if “Muslimah” is somehow similar. I mean, I imagine it is a common enough word, but how often could it really be in Muslim countries in a political sense, of women organizing? Probably never.

    I would like to see some activists change it to Muslimx, or niqaabx, or at least Mussulwomyn.

  24. chlorinated chicken block for the win.

  25. @songbird

    It’s washed in water. The emphasis is on not contaminating the meat in the first place rather than washing shit off in the final stages (hence the US need for chlorine/ozone washes – chlorine is not often used now). The EU requires chicken to be properly dead before processing. It’s a bunny hugger thing.

    Emphasis on avoiding contamination in the first place seems to be a general difference in the European and North American approaches to food safety.

    Eggs in North America must be washed by law, which is why they’re refrigerated (the shells are porous).

    In Europe they’re not washed and thus the cuticle is left in tact. The Europeans claim this prevents eggs from being laid in filthy conditions in the first place. Eggs are in turn not refrigerated in European supermarkets.

    @Thorfinnsson

    This is an interesting idea. I had always supposed eggs being refrigerated in the US was a legacy of the higher lifestyle in the ’50s. But I imagine the practice has spread pretty far by now, or am I wrong?

    Incidentally, it is probably good practice anyway, because it undoubtedly makes them last longer. I have never had an egg go bad, even though I have used them weeks past the expiration date.

    One thing I wonder about is why doesn’t anyone try to brand fancy color eggs to sell to yuppies, as special organic eggs. Maybe it is hard to achieve the same consistency with non-white or non-brown eggs. Or maybe, store eggs really come from the optimized breed, sort of like apples.

    There’s a trend of foreignizing or de-Anglicizing Arabic/Islamic (but I repeat myself) terms. For instance, dropping articles when referring to Islamic headscarves — which isn’t even done in Arabic — transliterating Mecca as Makkah (sometimes with diacritic marks, which again isn’t uncommon in Arabic), and pronouncing or at least attempting to pronounce words like “Muslim” with Arabic phonemes.

    It’s territory marking by Muslim settlers, signal boosted by their woke sponsors.

    Eggs are like that in Sweden too.

  32. @songbird

    Eggs have to be refrigerated by law in US and Canadian supermarkets. Various states have exemptions for unwashed eggs at farmers markets.

    I don’t think the practice of refrigerating North American eggs makes them last longer simply because egg shells are porous. Unwashed eggs are protected by the cuticle which prevents oxygen from entering the shell. Consider that you can also store fresh meat at room temperature if you encapsulate it in fat, as with potted meat.

    https://www.latimes.com/food/dailydish/la-dd-heres-why-we-need-to-refrigerate-eggs-20140714-story.html

    Eggland’s Best brands their eggs, right down to stamping their logo on the shells: https://www.egglandsbest.com

    Their claim to fame is feeding the hens a special diet which changes the nutritional profile of the eggs: https://www.egglandsbest.com/superior-nutrition/eb-eggs-vs-ordinary-eggs/

    As for “fancy color eggs”, to my knowledge eggs are either white or brown. Eggs with other colors would either require dying (would’ve sold in the ’50s, not so much today) or breeding some odd mutant hens.

    You are probably right that the egg market is already differentiated enough. Of course, to me, all eggs are the same. Even duck or goose eggs.

    I don’t think the practice of refrigerating North American eggs makes them last longer simply because egg shells are porous.

    The rates of chemical (and thus biochemical) reactions are temperature dependent. For instance, cold can dramatically slow the reproduction of bacteria. But it also slows things like natural oxidation.

    No doubt, unrefrigerated eggs have a long lifespan – I’ve known some rural people who will put them in a bucket of water to keep them cool. But I’d bet on a store-bought egg refrigerated compared to a direct-sourced egg, at least in summertime. But you make me curious to try the experiment.

    I believe eggs also have natural antibacterial properties. Albumen has the highest affinity for antigen of any known protein – if I recall. Of course, one can still get sick, but when comparing eggs to chicken the difference is amazing – chicken will spoil quickly. Eggs are almost like hotdogs – the non-deli kind, that last forever.

    As for colored eggs:

    According to Michigan State University Extension, egg color is determined by the genetics of the hens. The breed of the hen will indicate what color eggs she will produce. For example, Leghorn chickens lay white eggs while Orpington’s lay brown eggs and Ameraucana produce blue eggs. An Olive Egger, a chicken that lays olive green eggs, is the product of a cross between a hen and rooster that are from a brown egg and a blue egg laying breed. An interesting tip is to look at the chicken’s ear lobes; typically those with white ear lobes produce white eggs

    A lot of birds interestingly lay colored eggs. I think it is a defense against brood parasitism, though not perfect. If you see a robin’s egg on the ground, you would swear someone dropped a gumball – it doesn’t even look natural, until you notice the egg shape.
