When I got out of the theater, all I heard was people complaining about how it simply wasn’t scary and how they felt they’d wasted their time and money.
It is, indeed, established fact that a person with a drawn knife can generally move 21 – 24 feet in the time it takes someone to draw their gun from the holster and fire. Everyone from your average law enforcement body to the Mythbusters themselves have established this. 30 feet isn’t that much further out when you get down to it.
IIRC, the Killeen (Texas) Daily Herald and Temple (Texas) Daily Telegram run the Sundays, and I think a few other places have the Sundays as well.
I’m paying so much for my “Affordable” Care Act insurance that I can’t actually afford medical care. My policy is such a dumpster fire that it was $2200 out-of-pocket just for a kidney stone by the time it was all said and done. Getting my blown knee fixed? I could probably buy a new Buick for what that would cost…
Yeah; for all we know, the guy could be surprisingly well-read.
What I make it a point to do is use two bookmarks. I designate a spot in the book (say, every 50 pages) and plant one bookmark. The other is to mark where I actually am in the book. Once I hit that set mark, I’ll stop and read a few pages of something else for a while in order to keep any one thing from getting stale.
9 for 10, if a fight breaks out it’s because Antifa threw the first punch.
So you’re just fine with folks rushing crowds, hunting people down, and beating them senseless? With disabled folks getting ganged up on simply for being in the wrong place at the wrong time? No. Antifa has earned their place on the domestic terrorist watch list.
Thing is, this works both ways. The worse the credit rating on an investment, the higher the rate of return. “Safe” investments generally don’t pay a lot, and can even have negative yields if enough people rush to them during a panic (that is, the price has been inflated so high by panic buying that you’re paying more for the instrument than what it’s worth in the long run). But “junk” material? Look at what that pays… assuming it’ll pay at all.
I used this strip to highlight an argument I was making about how even good people can, under certain circumstances, have knee-jerk reactions to things. A “progressive” immediately condemned myself, Bentley, and this entire strip as “racist”. Yeah.
