sigh. Weather still doesn’t equate to climate, whether you’re talking about literal weather and climate or the “weather” and “climate” of our moods.
My father always says “No, I’m beyond help.”
You can keep your goblins and your unicorns… I want to hang out with Todd the Candy Dragon. RAR, rar rar rar, rar—Rar!
Speaking as an adjunct at a university, I would never take a student’s cellphone. If they’re disruptive (and nobody’s ever disruptive—they’re way more likely to sleep in class), I’d just ask them to leave.
There are a lot of ways in which we tell private owners what they can and cannot construct. They’re called building codes. They exist to make sure that people are safe and that spaces open to the public work well. There are already quite a few rules about this: there must be X number of bathrooms for a maximum Y occupancy. I can’t believe I have to explain this, but apparently our civics classes are not doing their jobs: when one decides to live in a civil society, one gives up some of one’s individual freedoms in order to benefit the group. This goes for how you are allowed to use your “private” property—property that is not fully and will never fully be 100 percent under your control. Nor would you want it to be: you want the fire department to service it. You want police to come when they are summoned. You want utilities to be available. You want people you hire to work on your home or property to do so to a certain spec or standard—and if they don’t, you want penalties stated in your contracts to be enforced. These things all require that you are not merely an individual but a citizen. Citizens are subject to laws, including building codes… including mandating appropriate restroom facilities. Bless your heart.
Kenny the smart, zen bully is one of my favorite characters in any strip. He’s hilarious.
Ah, now you change the parameters of the debate. Initially, you said Hillary Clinton was “laughed out of the room” when announcing her candidacy; having been proven incorrect, you note that people didn’t particularly care for her. However, those are widely divergent claims.
Gary’s childhood was last week. What’s the problem?
(If laughed out the room = winning more votes than the other candidate)…
Hugs. I think we’ve all been there, and it’s not a place we want to go.
