I'm not much of a conspiracy guy, but the more I read and learn about this entire situation, the stranger it gets.
Just go out and look at reputable sources, and see some of the oddities involved, and it starts to make you wonder...
Just like 99,99% of good drivers are punished by speed limits. Society moves at the pace of the most stupid. We can't have nice things and all that.

My guess is that, for the families, it's not tragically hilarious - it's just tragic. Sure, for them. For everyone else it goes something like this: 1 - mass shooting happens 2 - people in shock and grief struggling to understand what's happened 3 - offer thoughts and prayers 4 - do nothing else 5 ...Jump to post
Was there anxiety involved? Yes, but more of a worry in the back of my head as to whether being there was worth leaving meal prep and laundry for much later in the afternoon. The anxiety was less about how people judged me and more about whether I was making good use of my time at an event where pe...Jump to post
I tried one of the BK tacos last week... it tasted pretty much exactly like you would expect a BK taco to taste. (and that's not a good thing)
It wasn't the worst thing I've ever had, but you can probably go to just about any other fast food place and get something better.
I've known I'm an introvert for the longest time. The Myers-Briggs test came 100% on the 'I' indication, but today it was on full display.

Wow... the glee with which some supposedly compassionate people posted their sarcastic/snarky comments in this thread is astounding. Because it's insanity.

Also, AA's updated schedule for November didn't yield too much for CMH. A mainline E90 continues to LGA, MIA maintains 4x daily - one of which is upgauged to an E75, and ORD goes all-E75 except for 1 CR7 (maintains 9x daily service). No mainline return to ORD or CLT...yet, hopefully. Hey, an E75 up...Jump to post

NoTime- I'm fine with those ghouls being removed from the gene pool. I will admit, however, that my position on the death penalty has ameliorated over the years.

When you've got 9 killed and 39 wounded in Chicago over the weekend and no one cares, then why would we expect anyone to care about 4 dead in Cali? (https://chicago.cbslocal.com/2019/07/29 ... iolence-4/)
Pitiful, but that's the reality.

This is tragic, these people almost certainly are not actual CIA employees but merely Iranians working for liberalization of their country.

I don't know what all of the fuss is about. I mean, if you're at all familiar with the show, then the movie doesn't appear particularly groundbreaking.

Very true.

OK, not sure why the mods would remove the original thread for this...? A mistake, perhaps? AURORA, Colo.

What do y'all do for exercise? Run. That's pretty much it.

Ngo is a far right wing neo nazi sympathizer. Still waiting on that proof, buddy...

It seems pointing out lefty violence on this forum can get threads locked. And, not only that, can get seemingly innocuous posts completely deleted.

These were attacked in almost the same spot as the four last month, correct?
