That's in the bill too, however the news story is reporting it in a skewed way and nobody here actually reads the article because they want to post hot takes instead.

Each book gets progressively longer

Just pointing out book 6 is the longest of the 14 followed by books 4, 14, and then 5. Books 7, 8, 9, and 10 are the shortest of the series with 8 being the shortest of the whole lot. That said 14 has a single chapter that's over 81'000 words long and is intentionally written to exhaust readers.

Check the physical locations of the shelves at some point. Of the few things I've noticed some superstores doing to hide their dwindling stock this has included:

  1. Filling gaps with advertisement signs

  2. Putting confectionary on aisle ends and side stacks that would normally be completely different product types

  3. Physically moving aisles and removing others so there are fewer spots to be empty. This particular example was related to an entire clothes aisle just dissappearing and those around it moving in slightly to take the space, most noticeable from the outer most aisle where the distance to the boundary wall now meant more than two trolleys could pass each other

  4. Completely redesigning shelve layouts and chilled/fridge unit placement. An Aldi I visited some point last did this with one of its standalone fridge units that used to be a layout of two standing fridge units back to back near the wall mounted units. One day the units not facing the wall units just vanished and never came back

And then you have leafcutter ants that have been farming fungi for at least 45 million years as a food source, something humans only started doing properly in the late 1960s with quorn. It's still designed in a way that it resembles meat but it's an alternative to soy beans.

The fact antibody testing was sidelined so much really should have registered with more people. Likely caused quite a few pointless vaccinations, tautology that that is in this case.

Well that's one way to highlight the legal system is just a set of levers and gears that will be superceded when convenient. Anyone looking for long term play will now just ignore every lower level and aim for the top that has the actual supremacy over the others.

I think I'm just too cynical and nihilistic to believe anyone anymore so I'm just sitting here waiting for a giant meteor to put me out my misery while also fucking over the shits playing whack-a-mole with various civil liberties.

Sure I'll be dead but all those bribes and carefully thought out plans will have amounted to nothing because of a large rock and gravity giving a big "fuck you and your clown shoes" to the world.

Twilight is Harry Potter fanfic, and consequently 50 Shades of Grey is fanfic of Twlight.

How Long Until We Hear About "The Gamer Question"?

Again you mean? Even before the latest cycle started in 2014 there was Jack Thompson and others pushing this claim and asking how video games might have been related to particular events when they happened. Horseshoe is just on the other side now.

There are people who actually believe he shot and killed 3 black men, in part because there were publications that reported it that way.

In reality:

He shot at 4

He hit 3

He killed 2

The 1 that was hit and didn't die was Gaige who testified for the defence prosecution but fucked up so well the prosecutor literally facepalmed in response at what was said.

The 1 who was shot at but wasn't hit was Jump kick man, who was black. He was repeatedly described as being unknown to the prosecution when in fact he was known because he'd offered to testify for the prosecution and when they learned he had a criminal record going back to when he was 18 [and therefore likely before that since anything prior to 18 would be sealed due to him being a minor] they wanted nothing to do with him.
