This Sunday Happens to be Named ‘Irma’ on the Czech Name Day Calendar

Published

on

In the Czech Republic, every day of the year has a unique personal name, in which people celebrate the “name day” that corresponds with their own — except for national holidays. In a bizarre coincidence, September 10th’s name just so happens to be Irma, same as the hurricane that is expected to touch down on the Southern United States over the weekend.

The calendar is not just fun and games. In the past, parents were expected to choose the name that corresponded with that day, all of which were originally pulled from the Roman Catholic Calendar of Saints. Unique or unusual names would have to be submitted and approved by a government office. Many of the names on the original list have been updated in recent decades to keep up with modern trends, however.

Name Day gained even greater meaning to the people of the Czech Republic in the 1980’s due to the fall of Communism and resurgence of the importance of individual identity versus serfdom for the “state.”

The US community with the most residents born in the Czech Republic also happens to be Masaryktown, Florida.

Hurricanes are named after humans because it is easier to remember than numbers or scientific terms. The Geneva-based World Meteorological Organization uses six alphabetically-arranged lists of 21 names for naming the storms. Names currently in the roster can be found on the National Hurricane Center website.

Given that both lists have names chosen long ago, the coincidence has been noted as quite remarkable by those who are familiar with the Name Day traditions.

Florida residents in several areas have now been ordered to evacuate as the category five hurricane is expected to hit as soon as Friday. Irma has already struck the small island of Barbuda, which has been reduced to nearly 100% rubble. Gaston Browne, the Prime Minister of the island, has stated that “the entire housing stock was damaged. It is just total devastation.” He added that the island is nearly uninhabitable in the hurricane’s wake.

Likewise, the island of Saint-Martin is “almost destroyed,” according to government officials and Richard Branson’s private island in the Caribbean has been “completely and utterly devastated.”

“I have never seen anything like this hurricane. Necker and the whole area have been completely and utterly devastated,” Branson wrote in a blog post on the Virgin website. Fortunately, he and his staff are all safe and physically unharmed.

Irma is the strongest hurricane to ever hit the Atlantic basin outside the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico.

Movie Director Steven Spielberg’s Daughter Announces Porn Career: It Is ‘Satisfying My Soul’

These are Hollywood values right here.

Movie director Steven Spielberg, who has directed iconic movies such as “Jaws,” “Schindler’s List,” and “ET,” has a 23-year-old adopted daughter, Mikaela, who recently announced that she will be starring in porno movies.

Mikaela made the announcement that she is a porno actress after she wasn’t getting much traction in the business before people knew she was Spielberg’s daughter. There is little to no resemblance between Mikaela and her father or her mother, Kate Capshaw, as she was adopted by the couple as a baby.

Mikaela maintains that this is a move of “empowerment,” and hopes to gain her stripper’s license in Tennessee and begin working the pole in a matter of time as well. She claims she made the decision to do porno after she “got really tired of not being able to capitalize on my body and, frankly, I got really tired of being told to hate my body.”

Her decisions seem to stem from deep-seeded mental problems. She also mentioned that she has suffered from eating disorders, depression, and severe anxiety throughout her life, which perhaps have led her down the road of becoming a porno actress.

“It’s not my parents’ fault,” Mikaela told the U.S. Sun, referring to her variety of mental problems, which have resulted in multiple suicide attempts and alcoholism. “They couldn’t have known.”

Mikaela believes that doing porn and becoming a stripper is about “satisfying [her] soul,” as she believes that sex work will liberate her from the 9-to-5 grind and not make her feel violated.

“And I also just got tired of working day to day in a way that wasn’t satisfying my soul,” she said. “I feel like doing this kind of work, I’m able to ‘satisfy’ other people, but that feels good because it’s not in a way that makes me feel violated.”

Mikaela claims that she will only do solo work while starring in porn films, out of reverence for her fiancé, Chuck Pankow, who is more than double her age. She maintains that this is about independence, rather than desperation. She wraps her decision to degrade herself in feminist platitudes.

“This isn’t like an ‘end of the road’ or ‘I’ve hit bottom’ choice,” she said. “This is a positive, empowering choice. I realized there is no shame in having a fascination with this industry and wanting to do something that is safe, sane, consensual.”

Showing the example of the type of family values embodied by her Hollywood parents, Mikaela believes her parents will be proud of the fact that she is an emerging porn star.

“I actually think that once they see how far I’ve come from the bottom I was at a year and a half ago, they’re going to look at this and go, ‘Wow, we actually raised a really self-assured young lady,” she said.

As Hollywood liberals like Spielberg use their movies to lecture Americans on values and morality, their own daughters are selling their body for cash. It really shows the type of cultural cesspool that the entertainment industry has become, and perhaps always has been.
