I was under the impression that gasoline vapor ignites easily. Gasoline itself doesn't. (I mean, didn't Mythbusters try this in an episode? They tried to light a gas trail on fire with a lit cigarette, and it didn't work for beans...)
ALDI also charges a refundable fee for grocery cart use. It's a quarter to get a cart, and if you return the cart (don't leave it in the parking lot) you get your quarter back. Pretty smart move.
Because judges don't want to try and read briefs written in Wingdings because the plaintiff or defendant feels like being a jackass.
1) There are actually several homeless shelters in Columbia, SC.
2) If you're referring to that thing the city council passed a few months back, that shelter is about 10-12 miles outside Columbia city limits. I don't believe it's open yet, either. Certainly, the homeless people a couple blocks away from the Judicial Center (read: courthouse) don't seem to be worrying too much about it. Yet.
I could be very snarky and say that religion is the willing suspension of rational thinking. And I just did. (A talking burning bush? It must be God, it said so. It's not possibly a massive amount of hallucinogens.)
Someone get Scott Manley to figure it out using KSP.
One of the reasons I don't have a smart phone is that I don't have to charge my current phone every day. It's more like once a week. (Another of the reasons I don't have a smart phone is that I still have a 'dumb' phone that works fine. If/when it breaks, I'll think about moving to a smart phone, but I don't jump at getting new tech just because it comes out.)
Er, no. Just because it has the word socialism in it does not mean that National Socialism is actually a form of socialism. It's a form of fascism, and they don't get along with socialism. (Or communism, or liberal democracy.) You may have noticed that the Nazis ended up fighting the Russian communists. (Okay, to be fair, it wasn't just because of competing ideologies. Both Hitler and Stalin knew that the peace treaty they signed wasn't worth the paper it was printed on, but Hitler wanted time to deal with the rest of Europe, and Stalin had all kinds of shit going on back in Russia, so they pretended that they weren't going to go to war, even though both sides knew it was inevitable.)
I happen to actually live and work in the South full-time. I am white. My room-mate is black. Trust me, there's still a ton of racism here.
Just because they aren't marching in full Klan regalia as often doesn't mean it went away.
If he knows that they are cheating, he needs to flunk them out of his class. Otherwise, they're never going to stop.
Nah. The fools will end up releasing some shoggoths.
Never attribute to evil that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.
I'm not going to say you're wrong, because quite honestly, experiences vary... but the only Archetype I ever had trouble leveling were Controllers... and even then, it was more because I was goofing around.
The problem is that they closed City of Heroes, which had free-to-play and monthly subscription options... to what... make us play Guild Wars 2, which is free-to-play (after you buy the game), and has no monthly subscription fees?
That doesn't make a lot of sense to me.
The thing is, he's not entirely wrong.
Look, back in the Golden Age of Comics (okay, back right after the Comics Code Authority was first put in place) you could find heroes upholding good honest American values (I am being mildly sarcastic here, trust me). Heroes always won, villains always lost, authority figures were respected, and so on.
But that's not the way comics are now. Look at the last few years of DC, for example. You have legions of super-zombies killing anyone and everyone around them (Blackest Night), entire cities being destroyed or severely messed up by the forces of evil (Final Crisis, and Infinite Crisis), and so on. Heck, lately DC has seemed to play by a "Anyone can die" rule, which included killing off the non-super-powered kid of Arsenal (along with thousand of other people in Star City at the time).
Marvel isn't much better, when it comes to apocalyptic mayhem, but they tend to confine it to the mutant books more often then not.
Throw in the standard art style of drawing every female character with the most common super-power (mega-boobs), and costumes that consist of two hankies and a piece of string.... and it's not horribly kid-friendly.
