We both woke up around seven, still cuddled up on the couch. We'd been asleep for fifteen hours on that thing. We cuddled a little while more, then Destiny started coffee while I took care of the ship's air and corrected the course, since I was sleeping when the generator came back online.
We took another shower together after drinking a little coffee and she told the cook to make pancakes and sausage, and we watche
The victim is never at fault.
That being said, there's an important question to ask.
Why is is that the other women present that night were not attacked?
Is it because they traveled in pairs? Is it because they never left their drinks unattended?
It's often something like the person or one of their friends realizes that the world crashing down on them, so they get the fuck out of there ASAP and wake up the next morning having no idea how they got home.
Yeah, about that. That's a symptom of acute alcohol intoxication too. As far as I know, I have never been date raped but in my younger days, there were many nights that I don't remember how I got home.
I pulled out my fone and called the fleet commander who I was amazingly boss of and told him about our little power problem, then asked the computer what the robots were doing about repairs. Or tried to, anyway.
"Computer, what is the, uh... status of..." and the God damned machine interrupted me, of course. Who programs this junk anyway?
"All cargo unconscious except specimen in com
If he was black, the police would have just shot him.
You're welcome. You earned it.
It IS about race, you stupid fucking racist. Brown wasn't a thug, he had never been in trouble with the law and was enrolled in college to learn engineering.
The protests started peaceful, and only turned into rioting when the idiotic, racist Ferguson police acted like the racist morons they are.
People (and I use that word grudgingly) like you are the problem. I'm a white man who grew up in the St Louis area, and can tell you from experience that Missouri is indeed the most racist state in the union.
"Hold on, Destiny," Tammy said, "we're still in trouble."
I got it. Finally, even being so tired that my brain wasn't working right. God, what a dumbass I was! I really needed some sleep, but I wasn't going to get any for a while. "Computer, lock all doors," I said. "She's right, Destiny, We're in trouble. I finally get it. She left them short of drops and told them the pirates stole them. They're not even human a
The issue isn't that you disagreed with his assertion, he was obviously incorrect. The issue is that you were an obnoxious twat about it.
When he said "people like you", I read it as "obnoxious twats".
Ferber's boss would be seriously derelict in their duty if they didn't fire him for this.
There is almost no accountability for law enforcement. That's a part of what draws sociopaths into that field of work.
You don't know me, so you have no idea what "people like" me are about.
Would you be happy if he said "People who behave like you just did"?
I agree, that the only thing that's new is that the police are now treating middle and upper income white people they they have always treated poor whites and minorities.
The President is the head of the Executive branch of government, he is sometimes called the "Chief Law Enforcement Officer in The United States" but he has no authority to direct local police in any way.
He can instruct the FBI to carry out his directives because they are a part of the Department of Justice which is an Executive Branch agency.
Yes, they did but who is going to arrest them? Their fellow officers? Is the District Attorney going to alienate the officers who bring the cases and bolster his career?
Welcome to the USA.
Me and Bill hauled ass out of there towards Mars as fast as his crippled boat would take him. I did another inspection because first, I hadn't done a full inspection yet that day, second because I'd pushed her pretty hard, and third because I sure didn’t need any new surprises. We were at a third gravity because of Bill, and he was having a hard time keeping up. A third gravity? On batteries? I need to have him teach me some of that nerd
This has been one of my names for over 20 years. I even receive mail under this name.
If you know where to look, there's a clear enough connection between this name and the one on my driver's license.
If anyone is looking for me, I'm not hard to find.
It's easy to not care what people think of you when you're anonymous.
