Ahahahaha no this is a good pretext for a series of articles, so suck it @2. Oh god so many crappy bands were tolerated in my early 20's. Then I realised life is too short to listen to some third rate NIN knockoff.

With the sign-off she chose, I am betting she named the kid Othello. Just call him Otto and relax, lady.
Oct 6, 2016 teamcanada'sforgottenpassword commented on Auto Industry: Why Build a High-Speed Train Line Between Vancouver and Seattle When You Could Have More Cars?.
Personally I would love to take a high-speed train down to Seattle. As I see it, the biggest obstacles are to be found in the town of White Rock. White Rock is the whitest, richest, NIMBY-est place imaginable, and the current tracks run right between the town's waterfront and the ocean. So on one side you have a bunch of pissed off rich old people who already force the train to slow down when it goes through their town, and on the other side, not 15 feet away, you have the (rising) Pacific Ocean. I can't see how a bullet train could get through this choke point, either geotechnically or politically. I think they would have to find a new route, at least through that part.

And that is why I removed all the bars from the basement of my house when I moved in. I'd rather be burgled than burned alive.

I am convinced this guy was the basis for Dr. Leo Spaceman.

Would it surprise you, Raindrop, to know that the military have used photography to document their actions for as as there's been photography? Sketch artists and painters too. A big part of their use of these mediums is to try to capture iconic images such as this, images to stir emotion and create an image of great heroism. Why should the people who protest against the militarization of the police not do this as well? Why should people who want to hold public servants to account not also be allowed that power?

As a former art history major I can't tell you how much I love this post. On a pop culture note I thought her perfectly level chin and dress flowing out behind her made her look like Superman. A hero facing down mere mortals.

@9 - the Palm Beach Post has an interview with the Imam at the mosque the shooter attended in which he expresses both horror at the shootings and an anti-ISIS viewpoint for his teachings. While it's certainly true that all three of the Abrahamic religions have anti-LGBTQ factions, the Imam sounds more moderate than, say, Ted Cruz.…

Explaining LGBTQ to kids is the simplest damn thing in the world. "Different people like different things." "Different people look different ways." There. We're done. See how easy that was? But how the fuck am I supposed to explain why people who were minding their own goddamn business were slaughtered where they stood? How do I explain that fucking shit? How do I tell a little kid that innocent people can be taken from their friends and families in the blink of an eye? THAT is the fucked up shit I can't explain. THAT is the obscenity.
