I literally put a meatloaf in the oven just now, ten minutes before this passed by my eyes. Ugh. I have GOT to rethink eating meat.

This happened in Idaho today:
Idaho Republican Representative Vito Barbieri (via Wikipedia)
BOISE, Idaho — An Idaho lawmaker received a brief lesson on female anatomy after asking if a woman can swallow a small camera for doctors to conduct a remote gynecological exam.
The question Monday from Republican Rep. Vito Barbieri came as the House State Affairs Committee heard nearly three hours of testimony on a bill that would ban doctors from prescribing abortion-inducing medication through telemedicine.
Dr. Julie Madsen was testifying in opposition to the bill when Barbieri asked the question. Madsen replied that would be impossible because swallowed pills do not end up in the vagina.
Per his Wikipedia page, Mr. Barbieri is 63-years-old, he’s married and he has a law degree but somehow, despite all those years of life and all that education, he missed the fact that what a woman swallows doesn’t end up in, or go through, her vagina.

Here are my dogs giving me the death stare this afternoon telling me they want their dinner, NOW, and if I want to live a normal life, free from their ever-present, guilt-inducing (I should have taken them on a longer walk), penetrating gaze, I’d better comply.
I met them half way.
Spoiled (wonderful) brats.

Oops, here’s NBC’s Brian Williams on the David Letterman Show (2013) “misremembering”
not being shot down in Iraq ten years after he said he was (but he wasn’t) (see link above):

NBC’s Brian Williams (Image via Wikipedia.org)
NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams admitted Wednesday he was not aboard a helicopter hit and forced down by RPG fire during the invasion of Iraq in 2003, a false claim that has been repeated by the network for years.
Williams himself repeated the claim Friday during NBC’s coverage of a public tribute at a New York Rangers hockey game for a retired soldier that had provided ground security for the grounded helicopters. In an interview with Stars and Stripes, he said he had misremembered the events and was sorry.
“The story actually started with a terrible moment a dozen years back during the invasion of Iraq when the helicopter we were traveling in was forced down after being hit by an RPG,” Williams said on the broadcast. “Our traveling NBC News team was rescued, surrounded and kept alive by an armor mechanized platoon from the U.S. Army 3rd Infantry.”
Williams and his NBC camera crew were actually aboard a Chinook that took no fire but landed, according to Sgt. 1st Class Joseph Miller, who was the flight engineer on the aircraft that carried the journalists.
“No, we never came under direct enemy fire to the aircraft,” Miller said Wednesday.
So, apparently Williams and NBC have been promulgating this “misremembered” event since 2003 and only today did Williams confess he’d “misremembered” it? You don’t “misremember” whether or not your helicopter was shot down by an RPG. Either it wasn’t or you lied and said it was. “Misremember” my ass.

Look at the temperature anomaly happening in Greenland today. It’s practically off the chart:
