#6621: But it's vibrancy!

I've got a fiver that says the shooter and his victims were all gang members. What else would it be?

Unprovoked black-on-white violence. I mean, what could a 5-year-old child have possibly done to this man to prompt him to toss the kid off the third floor? The article doesn't say.

Truer words were never spoken: "Condemning the pulps as problematical is sheer hypocrisy, uttered in holier than thou tones by persons whose morality is immorality, whose speech is violence, whose chastity is adultery, whose words are crudeness and blasphemy."

That's where all the money goes that would otherwise pay for infrastructure and education.

    Axle nut is 33mm. Just try to find a 33mm socket. * * * ...9 PM. I did it. Got home, found out that the bolts which hold the hub to the…

  • #8265: That's kind of interesting.

    So the pool stopped leaking on its own--at least, the leak slowed significantly, and it wasn't much to begin with. I guess it's in a place where,…
