But interesting that Germany is so litigious. I wouldn't have guessed that.

How ridiculous.

I've long assumed that we're (USA) the most litigious country on the planet, but after doing some quick digging it looks like that unflattering honor goes to Germany,

"While it’s true that the U.S. has a large number of lawsuits crowding its courts each year, it barely cracks the Top 5 of most litigious countries in the world.

In his book, “Exploring Global Landscapes of Litigation,” Christian Wollschlager notes that the litigation rates per 1,000 people shows that European nations top the list of the world’s most litigious countries.

Here is a list of the top 5 most litigious countries by capita:

Germany: 123.2/1,000
Sweden: 111.2/1,000
Israel: 96.8/1,000
Austria: 95.9/1,000
U.S.: 74.5/1,000

U.S. 1 lawyer for every 300 people
Brazil: 1 lawyer for every 326 people
New Zealand: 1 lawyer for every 391 people
Spain: 1 lawyer for every 395 people
UK: 1 lawyer for every 401 people
Italy: 1 lawyer for every 488 people
Germany: 1 lawyer for every 593 people
France: 1 lawyer for every 1,403 people

I've seen this happen, and I was so shocked, I intervened and shooed the raping ducks away from the female. It was then, I noticed what i think is even worse, which was that that the female was blind.

The Yensuei Fireworks Festival is Taiwan’s answer to the running of the bulls. It’s very popular in Taiwan and getting more popular every year. To bring in more tourist dollars officials have been making the festival bigger and bigger. The strategy has paid off. An estimated 350,000 people attended last year, a huge increase over an estimated 50,000 just a few years ago, and a huge tourism boost for a township with a population of just 28,000.

It's like that tale when the kid says the dog ate the homework. Anyway, the fine was upheld.

Deer, by the way, can run approximately 30 mph.

As though the election season did not provide enough frivolous articles and chatter about people's dislike of Hillary's voice, smile (or lack-thereof) or Bernie's habit of pointing a finger when he speaks, we're now entering an period where the commander-in-chief appears ready to put an unprecedented emphasis on the veneer. As one person in Trump's inner circle said, “You can come with somebody who is very much qualified for the job, but if they don’t look the part, they’re not going anywhere.”

Unbelievable.

Granted, establishment types who owe political favors may not always appoint the most competent people for highly influential & coveted positions, but damn, putting such an outsized emphasis on how you physically look?

In some ways, I guess it's not all that crazy. After all, we live in a time where people quickly swipe right or left (Tinder) based on looks and nothing more. We live in a time where people simply read a news title and don't bother with the contents or veracity of an article. Shallow. Rushed. Good enough. Conveniently fits your narrative. Keep it moving...

My prediction is that once sworn in, Trump will be even more obsessed with how he and his cabinet come across on the screen and how they're covered in the media. He appears to be casting cabinet members for the ultimate reality show, one where showmanship 'trumps' substance. Politicians have by and large always cared about strategically crafting their public personas -- insert an egomaniacal reality star onto the most visible stage in the world, and you might just get the most gripping show on Earth.

Luckily, I just cut my cable subscription.
