People are being idiots with masks. I was waiting in the periphery of the sandwich shop waiting for my order, watching one cashier girl wearing a dust/particulate mask with an exhale valve rendering it almost moot for stopping exhaled aerosols, and the other wearing gloves that she kept touching her (more legit medical looking) mask with and even reaching under it and touching her mouth repeatedly.

I'm not a Trump fan, but "Do childish and passive aggressive things" isn't my way of dealing with that.

That Greta drawing is terrible, because it depicts a figure she'll never achieve in real life.

I bought a bird mask very early in. Wore it at the gas station and everyone went to the other island nobody wanted to pump gas near me. Wearing it in the grocery store nobody lingered or stopped their cart in my way.

I think we're passing "Fucked and far from home" at present.

The headline suggests 7 different individuals were found to be from out of town and thus fined. The body text of the story however explains that they not only came there together at the same time, they were "hanging out" in front of the 7-11. Conclusion: It still requires compound acts of stupidity to be fined (instead of just warned as most are) over the social distancing rules.

my 1st Amendment right is voided

Go ahead and get a group of like minded people then, and hang out in front of a convenience store with lots of people throughput. When you show up in court, switch your defense to the yellow fringe on the flag invalidating the court. You personally are in a high risk group if you catch the virus, so stay the fuck home. Or don't, your freedom to act as you please.

socialism (putting the interests of other families above your own), Multiculturalism (placing the interests of other ethnic groups above your own), extreme environmentalism (putting the interests of other species above your own) and anti-natalism (believing that it is morally wrong to breed).

Those definitions are biased to a conservative interpretation thereof, not a reflection of how typical liberals define and use them.

Hey, I LIKE big asses. Not Kim Kardashian's, but bigger asses with thighs to match in general.

Big boobs tend to be as sensitive as nitroglycerine. Like an exotic car, nice to see, maybe drive occasionally, but ownership can be an expensive pain in the ass.

her ass follows the gravitational pull of the moon

There are some actual special effects you can get with a big butted woman lying prone. Go slow and the first harmonic is the Y axis where waves ripple up, reflect off her back, and right above the resonant frequency will meet each next thrust with an audible slap. Get moving faster and the X axis hits its resonance and her ass cheeks gobble your cock like Pac-man. Faster still and you'll see more complex harmonics and even standing waves displayed on her ass-cilloscope.

In the 70s and early 80s, when the oil embargoes caused shortages and price spikes, there was a burgeoning industry in "fuel saver devices" that made bold double digit claims about their (usually nonexistent) gas saving ability. A running joke emerged that it would be dangerous to put 4 or 5 of these on the same car because you'd have to pull over every few miles to bail gas out of the tank.

Today's negative prices kind of undermine the hyperbole and implausiblity factors that are part of the basis of the humor there.

Several prominent climatologists are interviewed in this episode where they were predicting an impending ice age.

Climate skeptics tend to use this as grist for "Scientists don't know what they're talking about 30 years ago they were predicting an ice age FFS" level hand waving and dismissals. They never point out that until the early 70s, particulate and aerosol emissions strongly counteracted the warming potential of CO2. These pollutants were relatively easy to remove from smokestack and transportation sources, leaving CO2 as a primary anthropogenic driver of climate.

Better question is, when do we stop paying administrative bureaucrats who do fuck-all toward the function of educating kids? I'm talking about nepots and incompetents in plum 6 figure positions.

We made similar things out of light butcher paper with sterno fuel as young teens. Surprised we didn't set something ablaze with some of our careless deployments. Much fun and some applied physics.

blast it into your ear about as hard as you can depress the plunger.

I once had some improvised napkin earplug get impacted in my ear requiring medical help. The nurse used a large flush syringe which was effective. Problem was, she didn't purge the air out of the syringe so when she got to the end, the bubbles were threshold-of-pain loud!

"And since I don't have the coronavirus, I thought it'd be a good opportunity for me to be here, to be able to speak to these researchers, these incredible health care personnel, and look them in the eye and say thank you."

That's a big F.U. to frontline health care workers and patient(s) he visited while there.

a repost of this

Shoot, I scanned the headlines and thought I had a good scoop for Patrick.Net instead of the other way around for once. At least I successfully summoned AF for both an in-character and "normal" response.

It is basically a "UFO" diagnosis.

I've heard a radio personality doctor describe Fibromyalgia is a "Get this lady out of my exam room!" diagnosis.

Yeah, another sure trigger for this is when your SO and friend are discussing their mutual friend who's always unhappy and acts snippy toward everyone, weigh in that what she needs is just a good fuck.

In March I was wearing my white plague doctor mask in public for kicks, along with all black clothes and brimmed hat. This one black guy stopped his car and asked, "Are you KKK?" Was like fuck no brother, I don't think KKK folk wear all black even in their angsty goth teen years.

There used to be this grizzled Vietnam Vet character who drove around town in a WWII era Jeep with a non-functional machine gun mounted on the back. One of those iconoclastic against the grain but harmless types.

One day post-9/11, all the cops in town went screaming by lights and sirens and descended on an Arby's parking lot. I took a contrived test drive that direction a few minutes later to find all the cops walking back to their cars shaking their heads and dispersing. Turns out some Karen called in that there was a terrorist with a machine gun, so the entire force converged on the guy guns drawn as he's eating a Roast Beef and Cheddar.

"The ventilators are operating to the maximum. It is believed that the equipment was overloaded"

IDK if something was lost in translation or non-technical writers, but this doesn't make sense. Ventilators don't "strain harder" or get overloaded by normal use. Their motors should be spec'd as continuous duty at maximum load and temperature. There might be a design flaw or shoddy construction at play, but the notion that they were "overloaded" doesn't make engineering sense.

Tried to get some shit at Home Depot for the first time in a month. There were exasperated looking customers and harried looking employees in the "curbside pickup" area and a LONG ASS line to get in. Decided to leave, F that!

Is Greta the reincarnation of Rachel Carson, the herd panic environmental chanteuse of the 50's and 60's?

Bad comparison. If not for her work the world wouldn't have eagles or condors today. Entire neighborhoods of kids would chase the mosquito spray trucks and literally play in the insecticide mist.

he raped her again

It is strange, right? Rape me once, shame on you.

I've known total hippy-dippy women who were soooo passive and nonviolent to a fault that they wanted to allow a rapist to be allowed to remain in their midst. That said, the story in the OP reads more like right wing fanfic than a factual accounting of events by people directly involved.

Tueller Drills are a firearm training exercise to see how close an enemy can be before he can run up and disarm you faster than you can draw and fire on him. Average is around 25 feet I understand.

When your starting conditions are being IN A TRUCK following the adversary who is on foot unarmed and you end up with him taking control of your gun, that is an EXTREME level of Tueller Drill and firearm control FAIL!

18? Looks at least 40.

Yeah that doesn't look 18 now, and when she's actually 40 that ass'll look like she's trying to smuggle doilies in twin restaurant service bags of Bisquik.

An ass like that is my Kryptonite, I must confess. Lay flat, clamp her legs together once I'm inside, and it's over quicker than Rin with a big tittied Realdoll. Plus you can make special effects by timing your thrusts around resonant frequencies and harmonics as posted before.

Hawaii hates tourists.

Never gone because of tales of hardcore discrimination by locals against tourists. Besides active aggression, this includes playing passive aggressive games like having a casual 5-10-however long minute small talk chat with the cashier making you wait to buy your one thing and go and calling it some native Hawaiian thing.

It's almost as if the news industry thrives on sensationalism to drive profits, thus giving them perverse incentives to prioritize certain aspects of a story and downplay or not mention others. Tempting to attribute their behaviors to some grand top-down conspiracy, but when you peel away the layers it's a lousy dollar being grubbed after by every player bottom-up that's driving it all.

Someone on Patrick posted a link to the Red Pill subreddit. It was like some final pieces of life's puzzles were found at last for me. It put many past events in a sensible light, and has strong predictive power in relationships moving forward. So, that.

When I was in second grade I had a shitty young teacher who took a disliking to me. It was she who taught me that some of the adults with authority over me were less intelligent as adults as I was as a child, and they were frequently petty and irrational. During the second half of the school year my parents finally DEMANDED that I be moved to the other classroom. The old biddy principal's final words to my parents were a rebuking, "You're making a TERRIBLE mistake!" I absolutely thrived in the new classroom and my grades soared, but I was soured on school and authority figures forever already.

Jeez, where will hyperpolarized politics-as-sportsball lead next? Conservatives are standing up for Michael Moore when it's expedient for a moment, spinning this as some kind of "left eating their own" event, a narrative the Director appears to be hamming up for attention. However, the bone of contention is several SECONDS of copyrighted footage Moore allegedly used without permission. It's an absolutely trivial matter to replace or edit out the contested footage and have the video reinstated. Content providers like Youtube may or may not engage in selective removal for ideological reasons, but when there's a legit DCMA claim they are legally obligated to take certain removal actions. THAT is what this event is about. Get back to us when Youtube still won't allow the video with the contested seconds of footage removed.
