This probably doesn't happen very often but "I did not see that line". Shutting up now.
No. It's not. He explained it to you perfectly and if you don't understand it then you simply don't understand how any of this works and you're not able to participate in this discussion. He did not say that they could arbitrarily assault people who are not using force of any kind. He told you that they were allowed to escalate to a higher level of force if you fail to comply with them. They issue you a verbal command and you tell them to go fuck themselves for instance. Then they are allowed to beat your ass into compliance. That's the gist of it. They get to shoot you if you decide to try and beat one of them up too. That's because they're carrying a handgun and they are allowed to do whatever it takes to keep that handgun from falling into your hands. Go back and re-read what this AC said and when (if) the light bulb comes on you'll feel better.
"PS I also grew up Dellwood, my childhood home is about 1 mile where they are rioting." Hopefully that's still the case.
I hate to be a dick about Larson because he's died and it's never a great idea to speak poorly of the dead but his "ideas" were mostly ripped off takes on other people's ideas that he saw in popular films. The guy was successful doing this but he really just cranked out cheap copies of things and trends he saw in films. OK, he did that often. Not always but quite often. I'll give him that. There was probably an original idea in there every now and then. Not many of course. He did work in Television after all.
Yes it was however in the case of Buck Rogers the movie did come out in theaters prior to the television series showing up. It was always intended to be the pilot for a new TV series though. I imagine they worked that trick out from their previous experience with Battlestar Galactica but executed it better the second go round.
"Connections" was great. It was old even when they aired it but still, you weren't going to get to see that again on PBS and I watched the follow up series too. Definitely long gone. I miss that stuff badly. Television today is abysmal
I think it's worrisome that my government thinks it should have the ability to get into every single aspect of my life with minimal obstruction because "someone", "somewhere", is doing something they shouldn't be. I am thinking of the children. I'm thinking that unless people stand up to this kind of shit "the children" are going to grow up in a world where they have absolutely no privacy and think it's perfectly acceptable for that to be the case.
Much like the Pontiac GTO. I had one and there were very few sold in the states. They only sold it for three years (I'm assuming they're talking about the 2004-2006 version and not the original GTO from 40+ years ago). Very few made and they are disappearing quickly. I spend a lot of time at a GTO message board and pictures of wrecked GTO's are regular fodder for discussion. Still, while there may be few left I bet the ones that are still out there are still being (mostly) driven by idiots who attract plenty of law enforcement attention.
Isn't the BRZ already on its way out? Didn't sell well I understand.
This is it exactly. I'm 49 years old and have been driving too fast for most of my life. I still drive too fast today, I just pick my moments. Haven't had a ticket in well over a decade too. It's just experience. When I first got my 2006 GTO I got on it quite a bit but the first time I was at a light next to a younger guy in a Subaru STi I learned that some things change over time whether you want them to or not. The light changed and we both took off hauling ass trying to pull away. I didn't get far before I started looking at the street ahead of me and thinking stuff like "What if someone pulls out into my lane?" and "My insurance is going to go through the roof if I get in a wreck or get a ticket". I backed it down and let him go on his way. It just isn't worth it. I still have a heavy foot (2014 Mustang GT now) and like to speed but I do it when I'm alone and there are very few cars on the road around me (if any).
I just would not do that. I've used public transportation and I've moved in order to be within walking distance of a crappy job because it was all I could get. I understand that isn't going to work for everyone. I'm just saying I would not do this.
There's a reason we didn't go back you know.
Yep. Of course the dead aren't being buried safely. Decades of experience watching movies tells me that the dead are rising to feed on the living.
I'll be long gone and I've made sure that I created no annoying descendants too. I've done my part for population control. It's partially how a rationalize my 16MPG Mustang GT, hour long hot showers, and keeping my thermostat at 60 degrees all summer long. I'm bad but I've made sure that I'm the last of my line. Now get off my lawn!
And for some of us that's just fine. I've found nothing particularly problematic about being locked into Apple.
