Fat little despot.

Heard a quiet voice outside this afternoon, went out to investigate and this wee old lady had fallen outside her front door. Picked her up, sent it her inside, and cleared her entrance way. I understand self-reliance, but I just wish these people, who are obviously rather frail would just ask for help.

@Patricia Yarrow: so were three other people, but I suppose because they were men, no one cares.

You guys are all nuts, Toyota cars are renowned the world over for not braking, leaking oil, bits falling off, and randomly exploding. His defense is rock solid.
Seriously though, calling this guy scum befouls the reputation of scum.

@EvilBubbha: The last line, however, states that it couldn’t be found “except by chance”, presumably therefore, a statistical outlier. If the “intelligence agency” (quotation marks intentional) focused their scarce resources on a particular threat, it suggests that is where the greatest risk lies.
That apart, can you show that ‘white privilege’ exists? Can you show that Maoris buying guns leads to extra scrutiny?

The only ways I can envisage this debt ever being paid off is either through:
1: Higher general tax rates (consumption, payroll, income, land, petrol...)
2: Inflation taxation (blowing out the currency to the point where the real value of the debt is reduced
Either way, guess who is getting the shaft?

Mother: Did you eat all the sugar donuts?
Child with frosting on hands, face, clothes, every flat surface within 10 feet: No.
That’s the image going through my head when thinking of this driver’s excuse.

Don’t call me an anti-vaxer, I’ve been immunized against all sorts of things. However, when I found out that the companies making these are exempted from liabilities arising from possible side effects, it gave me pause.
Kind of reminds me of the GFC: privatise the profits, socialise the losses.

I know I’m a dinosaur, but I still like having the physical media: popping in an album, sitting back and reading the liner notes as I listen is one of the things I really enjoy.

Ask for volunteers to test viral response methods.
Survey volunteers about if they are concerned about the spread.
Report shocking finding that most volunteers are concerned.
Ever heard of a thing called selection bias?

Holding high expectations of a Hollywood film is about as futile as trying to slow the earth’s rotation by blowing bubbles in the opposite direction.

I’m pretty sure it’s been edited, if for no other reason than the relative sharpness of the moon vis-a-vis the castle. If it were taken in a single frame, I would expect either both objects to be reasonably sharp (with a high f stop, but that’s less likely with a night shoot), or the moon should have a lot of bokeh with a lower f stop. I could be mistaken though.
About the size of the moon, I was really surprised too, but it is an optical illusion, try using some sort of instrument at arm’s length and measure the diameter of the moon on the horizon and high in the sky.
cheers for the link!

@12pak, it’s an edited picture. Someone has taken an image of the moon and pasted it over a picture of a castle for dramatic effect. Optically, it would be impossible to produce that image, even with a f1.4 600mm prime lens. It looks great, but sadly, is not representative of reality.
Fun fact: even to human eyes, the appearance of the moon looking larger on the horizon than high in the sky is an optical illusion. It never changes size.

So, let me see if I have this right: someone on minimum wage would have to an entire day on the higher rates to by their can of hapo-shu at the end of their shift.
