It's functional, it's full, it's doing nothing and always has.

This makes no sense.

A gas leak in a pipeline from Russia?

I'm sure it's just a joint that wasn't made properly and that can be fixed, nothing nefarious going on at all.

FTFA: "The leak comes a day before the inauguration of a new pipeline, Baltic Pipe, which will bring Norwegian gas through Denmark to Poland. The Norwegian gas is meant to have an important role in replacing Russian gas."

It's the Vikings taking out the competition.

Maybe the pipeline requires internal pressure to combat the pressure of the water?

If that's the case, they have to repair it I guess.

Danish news said the airforce had overflown the area with F16s, which indeed reported that the sea seemed to be farting. Dunno why it couldn't be a helicopter, maybe the planes where doing stuff anyway.

They are cheap and fancy and delicious with or without the sprinkled sugar all at the same time.

Its pooty sending a message about the new Baltic pipeline. He targeted a pipe that had gas in it, but was of no consequence to blow up under the water.

Basically saying "I can do this".

We used to call them Worthless Originals because they would sit in the candy dish, or on store shelves for long periods until you got really high... and decided you wanted to eat a whole bags worth at once.

My grandma kept them in a candy dish in her living room.  I can't taste one without suddenly remembering the smells and textures of that room (and the terrible 1960s decor she kept well into the 1980s).

Could be Russia cutting this line on their way to cut the other one:

The leak comes a day before the inauguration of a new pipeline, Baltic Pipe, which will bring Norwegian gas through Denmark to Poland. The Norwegian gas is meant to have an important role in replacing Russian gas.

But that's not fully open yet. Won't be until January, and, as they say, 'Winter's coming."

Maybe the Russians tried to sabotage that one but cut their own pipeline by mistake.

Yes. I think that's the joke. My brain invariably briefly confuses Danish and Dutch quite often. I know that I know better than to do that and whenever I do it makes me want to die a little bit inside.

It's your own fault. Who the hell stores cookies in the hall or bedroom closet? It's your own fault for thinking they'd be anything but sewing supplies.

If you want cookies instead of sewing supplies, you need to open the tin in the pantry.

But even then it's a 50/50 chance
