I live in a Boston suburb and there were helicopters circling around the area. Something did occur, though I don't know what was behind it.
The Father Porter scandal. I think it was the subject of the movie "Spotlight."
Trump's in a catch22. If he's sober during a speech, it's "Trump is oddly low energy, he knows he can't win." If he's pumped, the angle is, "Trump rants and raves."
He should push the envelope and next change to a symbol like Prince did.
Wakes up in the middle of the night with a great idea.
"Hey, when reading the Teleprompter I could say "Nine one one," when it's clearly supposed to be read as "Nine eleven."
There was a case of horrific abuse involving a girl named Sylvia who was eventually murdered by her foster mom. The next door neighbor would hear the screaming regularly but told the court when there was a trial that it was "none of her affair."
Not only that, but people abandon their adult cats who have never known life outside a house and figure they can fend for themselves or don't care either way.
I adopted a stray pregnant cat and whatever she had encountered, she was very hostile and tried to escape several times. After she had kittens, she calmed down and is now a sweet lap cat.
I volunteered at a shelter. Someone saw a person put a kitten in a trash can and then drive off in the pouring rain.
They rescued him and when the story hit the local paper, we got about 22 calls wanting to adopt him. Happy ending at least.
I once heard there was an atheist teacher who complained her students were giving her a hard time.
What she meant was that they would say "bless you" if she sneezed.
He was exposed to burn pits in Iraq but died here of cancer.
I'm more concerned about the price of living. I did used to wonder about it and pretend it was happening as a kid. By myself, of course.
I read once that children in the concentration camps "played Selection." Anyone can be desensitized to horror.
I think he was a Nazi. In the movie "October Sky," Jake Gyllenhaal's character says he admires him but he's not his hero. A good thing, too. Of course, Hollywood side stepped the Nazi part.
"Obesity. It's just a made up word."
There was an experiment where they gave a group of people a list of items and told them to rank them in the order they would be helpful if they were dropped into the wild and needed them.
One guy seemed to know what he was talking about, but they dismissed all his suggestions. It turned out that he was right. They then played the video of the whole thing which was a bit embarrassing.
They always have the tone of a parent assuring their toddler that there is not a man eating monster in the closet at night which immediately makes me suspicious.
So do I. Or "man pretending to be a woman."
I heard they had brothels and the one Hitler used to show visitors was also okay.
I didn't know the camps had gourmet ice cream, a cool carousel and lots of neat bookstores. Plus beaches.
The media likes to push the narrative that certain groups are deserting Trump, i.e. minorities, suburban women, etc. I'd be suspicious of their claims.
Including friendships. Nobody has a bestie of the same skin shade anymore.
Actually, "Vengeance" had two white guys buddying around and it felt very odd.
I saw a trailer for the comedy "Bros."
The guy is complaining about his boyfriend and his friend sagely asks "if they're both bottoms."
The man's preteen children, who are in the room, start jumping up and down yelling, "Bottom dads! Bottom dads!"
He could have had a cushy post in the military when he enlisted, but he chose to take a position that the average soldier was assigned near the burn pits. That may have been the cause of his cancer.
I don't know what he was like a politician, but that took character.
"Free Guy," which came out last year was also influenced by "The Truman Show." Ryan Reynolds plays a minor character in a role playing video game simulation and after he sees a beautiful woman, decides he wants to be in charge of his destiny and breaks out of the mold of his dull routine. This, of course, meets with a lot of resistance, but he prevails.
Also a good example of how "we accept the reality we're given."
It's like the multiple personality disorder craze back in the day. Everyone was being diagnosed or self-diagnosed, but it was just a trend.
Good to hear it.
I was also an atheist from childhood and diagnosed with a mood disorder in my twenties, but since I've started believing in God, I've found I can take a much lower dose of meds. Thankfully.
