well no, Geisha is a profession in seedy Japan, a more apt analogy would be if the black christian dude was named Chicken Wing Eater Hussein. (i don't know what jobs black ppl have, thats what i got)

No, geishas are actually not seedy at all. They aren't whores, they are hostesses and entertainers for small/individual events. They are held in high esteem culturally, and it takes a shitload of training and work to become one. Japan does have whores aplenty, just like any other country, but they are not geishas.

I hate to break it to you, but those weren't real geishas. Possibly not even real girls.

Too many wildfires started from the power company. We'll just turn the power off more.

California utility PG&E vows more power shutdowns to prevent wildfire | Reuters

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (Reuters) - California utility PG&E Corp plans to increase the controversial practice of shutting off the power to communities at risk of wildfire when dangerous conditions such as high winds and dry heat are present.

In a report to state regulators bit.ly/2SevTIZ, PG&E said it would also remove 375,000 trees near electricity lines, trim vegetation over 2,500 square miles (6,475 square km) and conduct thousands of inspections to prevent its equipment from sparking wildfires.

The San Francisco-based utility, which serves 16 million customers, said it would increase nearly tenfold its efforts to turn off the power to communities threatened by wildfire, increasing the number of households and businesses potentially affected by fire-prevention blackouts in 2019 to 5.4 million.

Wouldn't forced power outages lead to far more generator use which I would imagine is a higher fire risk than the utility company.

They just don't want the liability.

Or death since high heat will kill old people with out AC. There is also greater risk to equipment and collateral damage when power is turned on. The good news is PGE will raise rates to make up for the lost revenue too!
