London Bridge is falling down… falling down falling down.
Some scholars believe that the English nursery rhyme tells the story of a Viking attack, while others think it's about human sacrifice.
“London Bridge is falling down,
Falling down, falling down.
London Bridge is falling down,
My fair lady.
Off to prison you must go,
You must go, you must go;
Off to prison you must go,
My fair lady.”
Though the reality of that attack has never been proven, the tale of it inspired a collection of Old Norse poems written in 1230, containing a verse that sounds close to the nursery rhyme. It translates to “London Bridge is broken down. Gold is won, and bright renown.”
But that wasn’t the only event that could have inspired the London Bridge rhyme. Part of the bridge was damaged in 1281 due to ice damage, and it was weakened by multiple fires in the 1600s — including the Great Fire of London in 1666.
Despite all of its structural failures, the London Bridge survived for 600 years and never actually “fell down” as the nursery rhyme implies. When it was finally demolished in 1831, it was only because it was more cost-effective to replace it rather than repair it.
One dark theory behind the bridge’s longevity maintains that there were bodies encased in its moorings.
Mary Schenley… 15. Marries 43 year old hubs
Her outraged father, Pittsburgh lawyer William Croghan Jr., tried to get ships to intercept them before eventually expanding his Stanton Heights mansion in a vain effort to coax the pair back from England. Decades later, in 1889, Mary Schenley deeded 400 acres to the city for a park. Just a few years later, the land was graced by the new Phipps Conservatory and Carnegie Library.

However, going by the top two US FTC experts, the conclusion of 7-Eleven's acquisition of multiple Speedway gas and convenience stations was suspected to be illegal and created difficulties in several local markets across the United States. They further said that the two involved parties culminated their deal at their own risk. The two officials believed that the commission was unable to strike an antitrust accord with the companies.
According to the proposed consent decree, Marathon Petroleum and 7-Eleven must divest 124 retail fuel outlets to Anabi Oil including 123 Speedway outlets and one 7-Eleven outlet. They must also sell 106 retail fuel stores to Cross America Partners, which include 105 Speedway outlets and one 7-Eleven hub. In addition, they must sell 63 Speedway retail fuel stores to Jacksons Food Stores.

Florida man who set up GoFundMe for Trump’s border wall indicted on tax charges https://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/florida/os-ne-florida-man-build-a-wall-tax-fraud-20210708-xjzfguiab5bsdm36ittx74tsuy-story.html
A nonprofit dedicated to carrying out President Donald Trump’s vision of a border wall has arrived in South Texas. The group, We Build the Wall, plans to use private funds to erect a 3-mile stretch of 18-foot steel fence on the property of a sugarcane farmer in Hidalgo County. As plans move forward, the outfit’s founder has spread misleading claims on social media about a local priest and nearby nature preserve—part of a trend of conflicts between the nonprofit and the border communities it operates in.
Last week, We Build the Wall—which has the support of former Trump strategist Steve Bannon and Kansas politician Kris Kobach—announced they were clearing land for the fence next door to the National Butterfly Center, a well-known nature preserve whose director has been an outspoken critic of the wall. A local reporter—along with the butterfly refuge’s director, Marianna Treviño-Wright, and Father Roy Snipes, a local Catholic priest—took to the Rio Grande in Snipes’ boat to pass by the farm and film the cleared land. In the video, Treviño-Wright referred to the group as “fraudsters,” and Snipes voiced a general distaste for the border wall. Since then, We Build the Wall’s Florida-based founder, veteran and conservative activist Brian Kolfage, has lashed out.
In an interview with right-wing news outlet The Rundown, Kolfage smeared Snipes, a beloved figure in the border town of Mission known for his love of Lone Star beer and vocal defense of a historic chapel threatened by Trump’s wall. “[Snipes] is promoting human trafficking and abuse of women and children,” Kolfage said, referring to the priest’s criticism of border fences. “Instead of driving around in expensive boats with media he should be helping … to combat the rampant pedophilia in the church.” Since Friday, Kolfage has also tagged the butterfly center in about 30 tweets, accusing the refuge of assisting the cartels, implying it has ties to insect smuggling, and labeling the center “left wing thugs with a sham butterfly agenda.” (The center, for its part, has been lambasting Kolfage as well, sometimes including the hashtag “#LiarLiarPantsOnFire.”)

A batman or an orderly is a soldier or airman assigned to a commissioned officer as a personal servant. Before the advent of motorized transport, an officer's batman was also in charge of the officer's "bat-horse" that carried the pack saddle with his officer's kit during a campaign

Hypothetically…. What if the vaccine was a test… for us? Who will and will not take it, which incentive works, what propaganda or fear tactics work best? What if this was all a huge data gathering test for the next big FF? Did we pass or fail? Did they win? Did we win? Hmmm. Sorry just shower thoughts.
