  1. If she passed out and fell over the rail and landed upside down on her head, I could totally see how that could be fatal. Especially if her head bounced off the ground multiple times or hit the deck on the way down before hitting the ground. The National Floor Safety Institute (didn’t even know that was a thing) states: “Half of all accidental deaths in the home are caused by a fall. Most fall injuries in the home happen at ground level, not from an elevation.” Source She could have been murdered or she could have fallen and died accidentally. I think the uncertainty on why and how she died is why this story hasn’t been picked up by the media.

    The Jussie Smollet Fiasco

    The guy is willing to drive the wedge deeper in our culture, delegitimize (and at best insult) actual victims of hate crime, and send two innocent (for all he knew) people to prison... for his mediocre career in music?? Selfish.

    VA Governor Ralph Northam Got Some Explaining to Do

    Interesting... do you have a source for that? Wikipedia says he’s always been a Democratic candidate. He did vote for George W. Bush before he started his political career, but he claims his party affiliation was “undecided” at the time.
  5. Wait... but is his coffee actually good? Now I feel like I might be missing out.

    UniteTheRight White Nationalist Demonstrations in Charlottesville

    Yeah, the guy drove his car like a missile into a crowd trapped on a narrow street with nowhere to go. Seems like a good case for the death penalty to me.

    General Mass Shooting Thread (originally Las Vegas Strip)

    The gun man who opened fire on a Christmas market in France was apparently on a terrorist watchlist. https://www-m.cnn.com/2018/12/11/europe/gunshots-strasbourg-france-intl/index.html?r=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.cnn.com%2F
  10. Kids can be very sincere about what they want, but that doesn’t mean what they want is good for them in the long run. The problem is, at that age, people are still searching for an identity (the male brain doesn’t fully develop until about age 25). Usually it manifests in change of clothing style, musical taste, etc... and they can be very passionate about who they believe themselves to be no matter how odd it may seem from an outsider’s point of view. I think there is a responsibility on us as people who have already been through that phase of life (not saying that adults have “arrived” or anything) to not allow or at the very least discourage as much as possible things that may cause permanent and life altering changes to a teenager. At this point, I don’t know that it’s ethical to provide sex surgery and hormones to someone who is not mature enough to fully understand the life long implications.

    119th Army — Navy Game Thread (2018)

    Go Army! Those chrome gold face masks Navy is wearing would look good with the Redskins’ spear and feather throwback uniform.
  12. I think you have a good point. I definitely worry about the ethics of performing a sex change on a minor. Nobody knows who they are at 14, and I think we should err on the side of caution when it comes to doing something that will effect the the rest of a person’s life.
