They probably thought the pipe had copper wire in it. There are lots of copper thieves.
Definitely, AT&T customers, then...
And you are down (-4) moderations, if we were keeping score.
If you infer from this example that even smart people are drawn to the superstitious and contrived, then at the very least, your reading comprehension skills are sound.
Virtually every smoker could quit cold turkey if each could be made to spend one day as his future self with final stage lung cancer. The strength of its addiction begins in the chemical with the brain's own nicotinic receptors, but it's finished with the silky slow pace with which it wrecks its havoc.
Thirteen days without one of those delectable little heart-stoppers, and I fight a couple of strong urges a day. The most difficult one is the next one.
Agreed, the spinal nerves get where they are during fetal development, and slicing through them pretty thoroughly kills off the distal parts of the axons (Wallerian degeneration). If this could be done now, then there wouldn't be any paraplegic or quadriplegic people. And then what are they going to do about tissue rejection, when the tissue being rejected is the entire head?
Pretty much this, although I suspect cloning a body made from your own cell(s) will be plausible at or before spinal nerves are fused successfully.
I'd be more pleased if they'd move forward on this body part cloning research before I need a heart, lung, or liver.
If you can't explain yourself properly prior to the final line,

You are not a special snowflake... unless you are.

For those folks who may see it 599.99 years before us, a little brighter may not fully capture the magnitude of it. Insensitive clods.
The shit's dirty. If we needed fuel to escape orbit to avoid imminent planetary disaster, and we've squandered our other options, maybe, but damn, just on the outside chance the climate change scientists are correct in their hypothesis... right?
This is an obvious attempt to market a piece of machinery with an advertised single purpose... even though that may not accurately reflect the product.
Move along now... nothing here worth wadding up your undergarments.
