How Good Is Your Taste?

I found this little quiz in a 1969 Reader's Digest booklet of puzzles. It purports to tell you if you have good taste in decorating. I figured it would be a breeze, but to my shock, I discovered that I have borderline BAD TASTE! ME!!!

Then I started thinking, well, maybe I DO have bad taste. I always thought I didn't, but it just may be that I can recognize a good piece of furniture, but don't have the gift for putting things together harmoniously.

To test this idea, I sent the quiz to my sister and asked her to take it. I figured if she passed, then I'd grudgingly admit that yes, I do have bad taste. But if she failed too, then the quiz was obviously junk, because we couldn't BOTH have bad taste! Especially as our mother had exquisite taste in decorating and clothes!

She just emailed me to say that she also failed the test! But her gay neighbour took it and he got 100%! So either this is a plot by decorators, or it really is true that gay men have the best taste in decorating and the rest of us should just give up.

Anyway, I'm posting it here for other people to take, so we can all test our decorating abilities. The test consists of several pairs of abstract designs, and you have to select the "best" one. The correct, tasteful answers are in the last picture; do the test first then check your results. I think it's best to take this test when you're feeling relaxed and calm; hurrying through it might give a poor result. Good luck!

Comey's notes - the real story

Kakistocracy had this excellent take on Comey's after-the-fact note-taking of his meetings with Trump.

So I had a meeting recently with my boss. He doesn’t care for me much at all; which is quite a bit warmer than my feelings for him. Given this mutual antipathy, I decided to take meticulous notes on our meeting. I did this because I am a servant of the truth, and it is critical that a record of absolute integrity be maintained.

Anyway, the meeting went about as poorly as I expected. Fortunately though, I came off looking quite well as I glance through my notes. The same definitely can’t be said of my boss, who has certainly scuttled his social life and political aspirations, in addition to placing himself in myriad legal jeopardies. Thank God I was there to document it all.

Here’s what I wrote he said:
Boss mentioned that he’s a serial pederast while discussing my allegedly unsatisfactory work performance.

Claims to have participated in the lynching of Emmett Till in his youth. Asked QUOTE Do you know what you say to a black man in a suit? A: Will the defendant please rise! UNQUOTE

Pressured me to be the bag-man for an industrial espionage racket. I refused citing ethics rules verbatim.

He responded by saying he expected loyalty from his employees and asked if I was loyal or not. I took this to mean he wanted me to falsify climate data in order to form a pretext for abandoning key international treaties.

I defiantly told him I was loyal only to honor, justice, and the constitution.
And that’s why he fired me. Anything else you may hear is a damn lie, which my notes above easily prove.

Mal de merde

Doing the jobs Americans won't do.

Denver Colorado is about to smell worse than piss-soaked shit-stained San Francisco. The city voted to essentially decriminalize public urination and defecation and the reason is as liberal as it gets. The city is now becoming a giant toilet to help protect illegal aliens from deportation. Denver is not only a sanctuary city for criminal immigrant scumbags but also now a sanctuary for human waste.
9 News reports that the Denver City Council voted to lessen the penalties for certain crimes including pissing, shitting, and whoring in public. Under the old law, these offenses were punishable by up to a year in jail and a $1000 fine. Under the new law, these disgusting acts will carry no fine whatsoever.
Here’s a fun list of things Denver will no longer consider to be a serious crime:
Sitting or lying in the public right-of-way
Unauthorized camping on public or private property prohibited
Urinating or defecating in public
Curfews and closures
Storage and loading
