Or just use the right hand rule
I should mention I grew up in Arkansas, so in comparison it's not so bad, and Austin is basically as liberal as San Francisco. If the Republicans hadn't gerrymandered the fuck out of the city we'd actually have all Democratic representation. Hell one our congressional districts includes parts of fucking Dallas, 3 hours away.
Well I do live in Austin (and I specifically moved here) so it's actually pretty awesome, except for the fact it happens to be in Texas.
Actually as a parent of two children in the Texas school system I know exactly what I'm talking about. This is a school system that criminalizes truancy for instance. You and your child can literally be sent to jail for your child being *tardy* too many times. 3 tardies is the equivalent of absence, so basically being 30 seconds late to class too many times can get you put in jail. Honor role students are facing jail time for truancy for god sakes. It's utterly ridiculous, we're having to stress over making sure to get the kids on time every morning. There is literally "no intelligence" involved.
His main problem is that he has said the only time he *ever* does any writing is when he is at home, so do the math on how many days out of the year he's actually been working on anything minus all the other ancillary stuff he's been writing.
Honestly, after the slog that was the last two books, I'd be happy to just consider the series the "canonical" version. I've really like all the adaptation choices they've made so far (except for Lady Stoneheart). The upcoming seasons looks like they're getting rid of a lot of tediousness, unnecessary plot lines of the last two books and making a more enjoyable story. It's kind of sad when the best way to improve on the source material is to cut stuff out. Dude needed a serious editor on those last two. The Aegon plot thread has to be the most egregious plot padding I've ever encountered.
As if anyone in Oregon, Alaska or DC has ever been given a ticket let alone arrested for blazing up. Unless you're moving shoeboxes of weed I doubt anyone's been bothered by the cops.
Or black, let's not forget that.
OK let's see, the one non-medical person that entered the US with ebola and ran around for a few days with a temperature infected how many people again? Oh right, the two nurses that were up to their elbows in his bodily fluids. How many of his family that he lived with did he infect? Or right, zero. And how many of the people infected with ebola have died here in the US? Oh right, that one guy who ran around untreated for a few days. Yep sounds like something we should really worry about living in a country with a modern medical system.
I'll take the biggest rectangle they have.
LOL. That was my first thought too.
DMARC and SMTP at Yahoo, mail broken.
That people can't tell difference between cheap or expensive food or wine or that a $1000 audio cable sounds the same as 5 cent one?
Ah well it wouldn't be the internet without people bitching about what appears, to me at least, be a relatively minor website redesign (uh a bigger font and more white space basically?) of a site that's pretty much just a sequential listing of stories with links and comments anyway.
Yeah same here the only reason I have a Facebook account is for testing FB integration in mobile apps.
