Also why are they making a Winnie the Pooh horror movie?

Because they can.

I mean, the kid's book taught me if you cover them in bees the problem will rapidly be solved and they'll stop being shits.

Real life has taught me anaphylactic shock is also a very rapid way to solve problematic behavior, so... bees. Bees for everyone. No hugs. Only bees.

I'm curious as to how a tank would evolve. Would it climb out of the primordial ooze wiggling it's track-nubs, feeding on smaller jeeps before crawling onto the shore having evolved proper treds?

SoÖ context required.

In 1998, the Good Friday Agreement was signed in an effort to bring to an end the Troubles - 30 years of political/religious conflict - in Northern Ireland. Among the bits and pieces of a complex agreement was that people born in Northern Ireland (perhaps only the Northern Irish, not wholly clear on it personally) could consider themselves Irish, British, or both. This extends to sports, and international competition.

The Commonwealth Games are similar to the Olympics, in that it has similar events and happens every four years, but is open only to members of the Commonwealth of Nations. One quirk of this is that the nations making up the United Kingdom - England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland - compete separately. Ireland is not a member of the Commonwealth, hasnít been since 1949.

Even if someone from Northern Ireland competes for Ireland in other competitions (world or European championships, the Olympics) they have been able to represent Northern Ireland in the Commonwealth Games, because NI competes as part of the British team in other competitions.

The International Gymnastics Federation (FIG) has taken it upon themselves to ignore a landmark agreement and a quarter century of precedent to say that NI gymnasts that have represented Ireland cannot represent NI at the Commonwealth games. Their solution is that the affected athletes either change the nationality on their FIG registration, or the games themselves remove the gymnastics  as an FIG registered competition. Because apparently they know better how to handle sensitive topics like national identity that cause people to kill each other for decades.

TL;DR the Northern Irish are allowed to consider themselves Irish after 30 years of killing, but not according to world gymnastics bureaucrats.

I'd just ignore the International Gymnastics Federation, to whatever degree is possible.

There was a fire alarm today. Apparently, someone caused a cooking accident. Nobody was hurt, the culprit was not even present, which is presumably why it happened.

The WTF is, I was the only one who followed proper procedure and actually evacuated upon hearing the alarm.
