So the two big contestants are "We kept Florida open-ish, kinda, now let's pander with empty platitudes to random third-world nations" and "Vaxxmaster Trump, he brings the vaxx whether you want it or not"?
Amazing how these "glitches" and "Errors" only ever seem to go in one direction, huh?
"Punishable by fine" means "legal for a fee".
Star Trek ended on an unfortunately sour note with Captain Archer, not sure where you're finding these weird knock-offs.
Twitter is meant to be a shorthand platform, there should never need to be a "show more" button.
With basic investment, you can double your money every 8 years.
Put in other words, the value of your money halves every 8 years.
By all rights, something that costed $5,000 back in Y2K should cost $40,000 in modern money. But it doesn't. It costs more then back then, for sure, but not THAT much more. We must subsidize it with government-operated commie slave labor from China, or other dictatorial communist regimes, to keep costs manageable.
Where before we had a trained American craftsman making something, we now have some sweatshop pseudo-slave doing it. And the ingredients in the product are likewise brought down in cost, inferior inputs -> inferior outputs, even ignoring the whole unskilled laborer issue. And so, the longevity and durability simply isn't there.
Truly, lavender was a symbiotic evolution with humanity as a whole. Praise lavender.
That fish has a college degree in intersectional studies!
That quote sounds like something someone who hasn't had enough shade thrown their way would say.
I think the biggest problem is the word "untapped".
To "tap" is to syphon and remove something. Tapping maple trees for sap. Tapping barrels for wine. It implies it will dry up, run out.
But the thing is still there, it will always still be there. The act of taking its money does not cause it to deplete itself. If you sell oranges, people who like oranges will buy your product until the end of time, and people who don't, won't. If you make very specific formula action movies, people will buy it 'til the end of time if they like it, and those who don't, won't.
They are tapping markets, as in they know the market is not forever, and is just a quick cash grab. And to do this, they are untapping their existing markets to move those spigots. And then astounded when they have less maple syrup at year end, when they removed all those spigots from those old and poked-at maple trees and put them on birch instead.
If the elderly are steady of body, they can stand. Meanwhile, if the young are not, they can sit.
Got a friend with a spinal injury. Uses a cane, but he can walk-ish. Standing on a fast-stopping bus or train, though? Not happening. Still amazing how, even with a cane, so many people say "you're young, you should be ashamed taking that seat" to let some 50 year old who is perfectly healthy sit down.
She was still available for comment. But she started screening her calls every now and then, so she's in hiding.
Who would we be, if we did not enforce a scientific constant like that one? ("When doing polling, if you were to ask 'who currently has the greatest power in the USA', about 5% of people will answer 'lizardmen from beneath the surface' just to fuck with your data.")
Humans, emotively speaking, can only conceptualize discretely up to the number 150 or so.
So when they're told over and over and over, that one singular man was killed for resisting arrest while tweaking high as a kite, to them, that's 1/150, it occupies one of their precious few numbers. From there, just expand logically, 1/150 = 2,000,000/300,000,000. So clearly 2 million people die to cops each year. Of course, they ALSO can't fathom big numbers like "million", that is well beyond 150, but just know that it's a whole super duper lot of them.
Aren't they magnificent, with their exotic culture, and customs? They even make asian BBQ, and for that culinary crime, people ask for them to be imprisoned. Tragic, really.
Which is saddening considering they CAN help, in 99% of sex dismophia cases... by fucking off.
Hollyweird writers certainly don't seem to have any societal or fiscal pressures put upon them, so maybe yeah, just not enough pressure up here on the surface.
Not gonna lie, saw the black-and-metallic from the thumbnail, with white skin tone, and thought it was going to be a South African Black Panther cosplay at first passing glance.
My disappointment is immeasurable, and my day: ruined.
But somehow, I feel that the sentiment of this alert and virtue-signal wouldn't be quite as present if that cosplay were the case in question.
So... The takeaway from this article is that it isn't murder even if they go brain-dead, if it takes them as long as getting into a hospital before declaring it, as long as Obama says the person looks like him?
A bug's life is an allegory for the dangers of drinking and driving.
But that's, just, like, your opinion, man.
I believe like how a male donkey is a Jack and a female donkey is a Jenny, or a Cow and a Bull for cattle, elves have the same duality. It's bussy for male elves, and slav for female elves.
After all, there exists countless pictures of female elves captioned "Elf slav, what do?", and male elves constantly are referenced with "bussy".
Nah, you could mention GameJournoPros on Twitter, but that's a bannable offense on 4chan.
Honor is a myth created by those who won.
When the English beat the French by having longbowmen just shoot their cavalry, it was blatant cheating in their standard rules of war.
When an American soldier shoots an insurgent charging at him with a machete, a gun versus a sword, he's blatantly cheating in the matchup.
If you're in a duel and wearing fullplate, and see your opponent wears nothing at all, you do not strip down to their level. And if the situation is reversed, you do not pridefully wear nothing, you try to find some fucking armor.
To be fair... it DID solve the immediate problem. They build those tasers much stronger than they used to, though.
