Occasional Cortex got punked by a girl advocating eating babies, but that’s not the funny part. AOC’s non-reaction and acceptance of the premis IS.

Are you a freelance worker? Are you a tech guru? Are you self-employed? California AB5 should interest you. Employers and consultants are about to get screwed.

There’s a movement to recall California’s Governor Gavin Newsom (Nancy Pelosi’s nephew). Here’s his response as shown on the Petition:

Nah. Can’t be Newsom’s socialist policies that are crippling the State’s economy. No way. Nope. LOL

    I’m not at all surprised by the USA Swimming study. I haven’t read the source article yet, but it matches my experience.

    When I entered the Naval Academy, I was a very poor swimmer, so I got put onto the “sub squad” (so named because it was for those who were substandard in their ability, but unofficially also referred to those who couldn’t stay on the surface). I was the only non-black on the squad at the time.

    The problems they had then were inexperience with swimming due to lack of facilities in their schools and communities, and a combination of dense musculature and low body fat impeding their ability to float. There was one guy on the squad who was nicknamed “AquaRock” because he had absolutely no ability to float.

    We all eventually got good enough to pass the swimming requirements, including a 45-minute swim wearing long trousers, long-sleeved shirt, and sneakers, but the disparity in racial composition of the sub squad was noticeable.

    Wheels —

    “…a combination of dense musculature and low body fat impeding their ability to float.” Hadn’t considered physiological differences.

    My younger sisters learned to swim before I did, and it didn’t help that the swim teacher berated me in front of the others before she sent me back to the little kid’s class in the wading pool. I learned to swim on my own.

    Later, in Boy Scouts, we had to swim a mile via laps in a pool. I finished and could barely walk.

    Fun times.
