BREAKING NEWS! Unforeseen Contingencies violates EU "law!"
This notice now appears on the Blogger dashboard:
European Union laws require you to give European Union visitors information about cookies used on your blog. In many cases, these laws also require you to obtain consent.
As a courtesy, we have added a notice on your blog to explain Google's use of certain Blogger and Google cookies, including use of Google Analytics and AdSense cookies.
You are responsible for confirming this notice actually works for your blog, and that it displays. If you employ other cookies, for example by adding third party features, this notice may not work for you.
The entire staff of Unforeseen Contingencies has examined this carefully, and so far as "we" can tell, the notice appears nowhere on this blog.
Good! This saves us the trouble of having to delete it. The EU is an idea whose time never was, an idiotic scheme to empower bureaucrats in Brussels. The EU's main achievements are the Greek bankruptcy and PIIGS, subsidizing endless streams of unemployable Islamist immigrants, subsidizing incompetent French farmers with the Common Agricultural Policy, thumb-twiddling while Putin invaded Ukraine and continues threatening Eastern Europe, and a Nobel prize. All of these are things that should fill the EU with shame.
But still, the law is the law, so for the record, please see below.
