It makes me really sad that you stopped "haha!" because it was something that defined you for us scribblers. But especially because it feels like you were pressured into changing yourself for one salty anon, like, everyone else saw it as something so cute and happy and they were the only one who saw it as something bad :/
I assure you that they weren’t alone! I’ve received a few e-mails indicating irritation and disgust in our sloppy and unprofessional tone, so I don’t want to be too upsetting.
Miss Witch as much I wanna love Robert, I can't cause that's my ACTUAL FATHER'S name and I don't wanna open up a can of Freud
O SHIT!!!! It’s a-okay!!!! You could distance yourself from the name coincidence when you get to know Robert. He’s quite the character. But even without Robert there are a buncha dads to bang. There’s even one the protag went to college with. They got history together and he’s buff now so go get him!!!!
Some of my notes from the Versus Rodin exhibition during my Art excursion 😄 Featuring the recently purchased Daiso Soft Marking Pens in the Ash colours and some of the washi tapes I recently received in the mail from Kawaii Pen Shop and Aliexpress 😍
Nope. It happened naturally! No romance, we just banged. That’s why I’m worried his heart is out of reach now…… He’s “bad dad” he’s used to stuff like this. Maybe I should’ve been more of a challenge to get him fully invested instead of balls deep invested.
Policeman pulls over black woman and quickly discovers she is the state attorney
A pair of police officers have caught themselves on camera, struggling to explain why they had pulled over Florida’s first and only black state attorney.
Aramis Ayala, who serves as state attorney in the Sunshine State’s 9th Judicial Circuit, was pulled over on 19 June.
As the officer approaches her window, she can be seen grabbing her licence from her wallet, which she then hands over to him.
When he asks what agency she works for, she responds: “I’m the state attorney”.
The officer immediately launches into an explanation for the stop, explaining that he ran the tags on her car and received no result.
Ms Ayala asked: “What was the tag run for?”
The officer then begins to stumble, saying: “Oh we run tags through all the time, whether it’s a traffic light and that sort of stuff; That’s how we figure out if cars are stolen and that sort of thing.”
He added: “Also, the windows are really dark. I don’t have a tint measure but that’s another reason for the stop.”
The State Attorney, visibly annoyed, asks for the officers’ cards. Neither have them available, so they write their contact information on a piece of paper.
Orlando police department said that it “allows the running of tags for official business only, and this is done routinely on patrol”.
“In regards to the video, which was released by the Orlando Police Department last month, the officers stated the tag did not come back as registered to any vehicle. As you can see in the video, the window tint was dark, and officers would not have been able to tell who, or how many people, were in the vehicle,” a statement said.
No complaint has been filed over the stop, police said.
Ms Ayala, a career public defender, ran for state attorney on a platform of transparency and a promise to bridge gaps with communities of colour.
In a statement to The Independent, Ms Ayala said she has “violated no laws”.
“The license plate, while confidential was and remains properly registered… The tint was in no way a violation of Florida law… Although the traffic stop appears to be consistent with Florida law,” the statement said.
“My goal is to have a constructive and mutually respectful relationship between law enforcement and the community, Ms Ayala added. "I look forward to sitting down to have an open dialogue with the Chief of Orlando Police Department regarding how this incident impacts that goal”.
Ms Ayala recently made headlines for refusing to pursue the death penalty in the murder trial of Markeith Loyd, who is accused of killing Orlando Police Lieutenant Debra Clayton and his pregnant ex-girlfriend, Sade Dixon.
Florida Governor Rick Scott removed her from the case for what he called her refusal to “fight for justice”.
Ms Ayala has asked the state Supreme Court to block Mr Scott’s decision.
In April, the State Attorney’s office reported she had received a noose in the mail, accompanied by a disturbing letter. The office said Ms Ayala frequently receives hate mail, often expressing racist sentiments.
Honestly, the movies are worth a shot just for Casca.
Griffith’s like… “I can be your angle”
“Or yuor devil”
Many people die in horribly gruesome ways and that’s always a plus for me. Aaaand, if you watch the movies you’ll understand why the following gif is therapeutic. (when you’re stressed you can stare at it to calm yourself, but only if you know what’s up with the plot)
Best for last, my favorite character, the beast, the warrior, the lover, the boyfriend goals, my sweet beefcake… Guts.
You will never love a man as much as you’ll love Guts. Trust me. Curious to see how much love you have to give to a hot mess of a hunk? Watch Berserk. (then read the manga for further heartbreaking love)
In Berserk the main characters aren’t what they seem and the plot twists are plot twists. Hardcore stuff, not pansy situations overhyped as shocking. Every important character has substance, even barely-any-screen-time little guys, there’s effort put into everyone. No one feels disposable. The love story might as well put your heart into a blender. The friendship story drinks the blended heart like a protein shake.
Berserk is a manga that’s been going on for a mind-blowing 28 years. There have been hiatuses but the art is consistently incredible and the story is well paced. As the author’s masterpiece, I’m sure it won’t let you down.
Drive down the shoulder of the road? Enjoy your fine.
I’m a New Yorker, and like all New Yorkers who drive, I hate cabbies and livery drivers with a fiery passion. I don’t hate someone just because they happen to be one of these drivers, but such a large percentage of them are perfectly happy to speed through traffic, never use a turn signal, cut you off, fuck over tourists, rapidly weave across lanes to pick up a fare, etc… that it’s hard not to generalize.
Anyway, I drive on Van Wyck Expressway every day. Everyone from the area knows that the Van Wyck has been perpetually under construction pretty much since it opened (Seinfeld even has a bit about it). Traffic is frequently congested, but it would more or less move along except that many drivers feel they’ve found a magical shortcut by cutting down the emergency shoulder, then when the shoulder runs out, they have to force their way over. This slows down everyone.
I have a dashcam on my car, and a few months ago, I got footage of a black livery SUV went speeding past me on the shoulder. I reviewed the footage later, and you can see the license plate clear as day.
I decided to check out the Taxi and Limousine Commission’s website, and found they have a very easy online form to file out a complaint about a taxi or livery driver. I filled it out, and uploaded the video as well as a couple of stills taken from it.
It was a long process, but a prosecutor for the TLC called me to discuss what happened, and they confirmed that the driver was indeed in violation of TLC rules, and would have to attend a hearing, and asked that I be available to participate in the hearing by phone as well.
On the date of the hearing, I called in and summarized what happened. I disconnected after that, so I’m not sure what the driver’s side of the story was, but it must not have been persuasive, because today (about two weeks later), I received an e-mail saying he had been found guilty, and given a $700 fine.
Some of you may have heard that the Disney corporation is responsible for at least one real, “live” Ghost Town.
Disney built the “Treasure Island” resort in Baker’s Bay in the Bahamas. It didn’t START as a ghost town! Disney’s cruise ships would actually stop at the resort and leave tourists there to relax in luxury.
This is a FACT. Look it up.
Disney blew $30,000,000 on the place… yes, thirty million dollars.
Then they abandoned it.
Disney blamed the shallow waters (too shallow for their ships to safely operate) and there was even blame cast on the workers, saying that since they were from the Bahamas, they were too lazy to work a regular schedule.
That’s where the factual nature of their story ends. It wasn’t because of sand, and it obviously wasn’t because “foreigners are lazy”. Both are convenient excuses.
No, I sincerely doubt those reasons were legitimate. Why don’t I buy the official story?
This is unbelievable! Steve received a mail with this photo a while ago from the great-granddaughter of his Brooklyn neighbour. The picture was taken around the year 1940 (or 1942?)
Oh! And the great-granddaughter even left us her phonenumber… *smirk*
