Why can't you get matzoh ball soup in a can?  I've been thinking of trying to make it, but it seems pretty hard to do it right.

Paging Dr. Funkenstein...

Microbiologically speaking,
When I start churnin', burnin' and turnin'
I'll make your atoms move so fast
Expandin' your molecules
Causing a friction fire
Burnin' you on your neutron
Causing you to scream
"Hit me in the proton, BABY!"

/But Clinton!

Years ago there was a nice little kosher restaurant here in town. The first time I went I was eating my appetizer of matzo ball soup when the waiter brought me my main course.

I pushed my soup aside to make room for the main course plate. An elderly Jewish woman on the other side of the restaurant yelled sternly across at me "finish your soup, it's good for you!"

After a quick "yes ma'am" I made sure to finish all my soup. It was delicious.

Not to ...whatever, but here's a great example of someone not knowing that there is quite a bit of difference between American Jews (largely Ashkenazi, European-descended) and Israeli Jews (roughly half of whom come from Arabic or Persian cultures).

A "traditional" cold remedy in Israel would just as likely involve some mutant harisa (or... whatever's in the green shiat at the shawarma bar) that melts the mucus out of your sinuses.

The UK Parliament may be in a similar bind. A certain idiot known as Jacob Rees-Mogg insisted that Parliament stop being virtual. Why? Because Boris Johnson was getting his ass kicked at PMQs and he was hoping a packed chamber would bolster his support.

Problem 1) The Speaker said nope, we're sticking to 50 in the chamber. No packed house.
Problem 2) To maintain distancing, all 650 members of the house have to remain 2 meters apart. Rees-Mogg's answer was "just stay 2 meters apart, we'll form a line."

That's a 1.3 kilometer line if everyone is present for a vote. That's 4/5ths of a mile, 4200+ feet. Votes now take an hour plus.  And because of chokepoints, it means MPs are running into each other all the time. So much for distancing.

But the real problem: The business secretary fell ill. In the chamber. Suddenly, you have 640+ MPs wondering if they just caught COVID-19.

In this case, no - results from tests came back today, negative.

The UK had a working remote parliament system...and it was thrown away to help a failing PM, and worse, it was thrown away for nothing because the help the PM was supposed to get - the benches packed with Tory members - isn't going to happen. So, it's a fix that doesn't help.

And now all the MPs are wondering just when they will get it.

I hereby demand that I be given a Fark account: The UK Parliament may be in a similar bind. A certain idiot known as Jacob Rees-Mogg insisted that Parliament stop being virtual. Why?

Who would have thought The Honourable Member for the Eighteenth Century would be against a sensible modern technological solution?
