  1. They named their secret program, “Covert Operations Program”? Are there any files at the post office named “incriminating evidence” or “it would be bad if the media ever saw these”.
  2. I have coffee twice a day. They vary in size and type though it’s usually a 12oz coffee in the morning and a double shot espresso after lunchtime. I used to drink a lot more, but once I stopped trying to function on just 4-5 hours of sleep a night I’ve found I don’t need as much caffeine and my coffee habit was getting expensive.
  3. Yeah that really does look like she was shot while literally in the act of trying to stab someone. Unless that turns out to be a phone in her hands or something, it’s going to be real hard to argue this shooting was wrong. Still, it’s a shame to see life end like that for someone so young. A moment of anger, a loss of control, and what should have been a long story ends abruptly. heres the press conference where they played the body cam footage. Click at your own risk, it’s video of someone being shot to death. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LEY3Da_Sjbw at aroun
  4. No one gets out of prison with nice, or even neutral things, to say about the prison system or it’s employees. Especially true about the guards. The US prison system is a nightmare and the bureau of prisons has far too much power and virtually no real oversight and accountability.
  5. Getting the government to go after people extorting them, without revealing why they were being extorted, is just what the ruling class expects. I’m sure Gaetz genuinely feels wronged by what’s happening here. No doubt is telling everyone who will listen that the FBI should be invested for leaking this. These are people that make crimes go away with a check and a signed NDA, without being immediately investigated for witness tampering. Why wouldn’t they expect the justice system to protect them from the consequences of their own actions?
  6. If you guys haven’t heard the World War Z audio book, I highly recommend it. It’s read by an pretty good cast of actors. Highly entertaining. It’s probably free with your library card. I use the Libby app with fairfax county public library card.
  7. This thread is going to be on the news after the murder.
  8. No one knows what to do with this information. It’s kind of amazing to watch it play out. Douglas Adams SEP Cloaking Device was spot on. I wish he had lived to see this.
  9. This woman’s lawyer just posted this video thats speaks to this larger issue of police violence and lack of training for mental health situations. It’s not just the instances where someone dies that are the problem.
  10. If no one hates Wyoming, why does do one live there? We should rent it out if no one is going to use it.
  11. It’s also on fire regularly. And it’s falling into the ocean.
  12. do audio books count? I just recently listened to Stephen Kings entire Dark Tower series. It could have been shorter because it certainly hits some lengthy slow patches... but I enjoyed the Wheel of Time, so meandering narratives that go nowhere are obviously not a deal breaker for me. Plot is a little scattered and there’s an enormous amount of dues ex machina employed in it. King even pokes a little fun at himself by having his characters discuss exactly that. Roland is an excellent character, one of the best, but all in all the series is a bit of a let down. There’s no real show down
  13. I agree with this. I don’t think more or less funding or a few reform here and there can fix a overly violent, corrupt, and unaccountable police force. It’s not just that though, policing costs a fortune and people are increasingly dissatisfied with the results. It has to be rebuilt from the ground up. Doesn’t have to happen all at once, but we can’t just keep leaning on the old ways of doing things and pretend they match the needs of a changing world. In the more distant future humans are all going to be tracked like dots on video game mini maps. This current system of hoping s
  14. I have a herniated disc in my lower back. I spent a year in pain until one chiro in my area manage to get me moving again, but I went to a dozen different options before landing on one that did the trick. Everyone’s experience is different with these sorts of injuries.This is what I’d recommend. 1- get an MRI. demand it. accept not substitute, it’s the only way to see what’s really going on. 2- if you have permanent damage to your spine, what you’re going to be doing is searching for what makes you feel better and keeps you feeling good the longest. 3- just say no to
  15. I’ve said this before, but Americans in general are too accepting of cops pointing a guns at people. If you have a thousand frightened cops pointing their guns at a thousand frightened people... you’re going to end up with people shot, that shouldn’t have been shot. There’s no way around this. No politics are necessary. It’s just math and predictable results. Once the guns are out and aimed at a human being things get really dangerous. The fact that many police encounters reach this point almost immediately, no doubt results in a lot of shootings that didn’t need to happen. Ther
