Dammit now I have to walk to work. I hate you.
Instantly raises the stakes. Her retaliation would be likely bad for her own legal situation. In the end, she is not going to hurt the kids as bad as the dog charging at them would. If there is a legit perceived threat from the dog, I shoot in a heartbeat and deal with the fallout. She doesn't sound nearly as scary.
They are loyal to a fault, that is why any PERSON with a desire to defend something with a dog is WELL SERVED having a WELL TRAINED pit. The fact drug dealers use them shows a person's misuse of a breed, it doesn't mean the breed is bad. By this logic, drug dealers always have guns, remove all guns from the world as well, clearly they are bad as well. (Before anyone gets political with that, realize, the point here is guns are a weapon and removing 1 weapon, like removing 1 breed, will just result in people turning to the next best option.)
Get authorities involved. If that doesn't solve it, shoot the damn dogs. I don't care about any of the other stuff if I feel my family's health is on the line because a blatantly irresponsible pet owner isn't handling their stuff. Rescue of this breed also adds a wildcard factor, what if that thing triggers and goes into straight up attack, not even letting it happen around my family, period. My property, my priorities; my priorities are to protect my family first and foremost.
I think you can leave out the "man" part.
Baseball for me comes down to two things.
#1: I don't have that much free time. I could watch games during the day at my business, yet I still don't dial in. The concept of baseball in a numbers perspective I find interesting, but 3-4 hour games? Nope. Taking 1/6 of my day is just not a thing. Each year I get older, the more value I have found myself placing on my time. I used to watch a lot of college football Saturdays, now I watch OSU and if there are any interesting other competitive games on(which I usually dial out half way through.).
#2: I find the game incredibly boring as a sport. I appreciate the duel of pitcher and batter, but the rest of the events are so insanely lackluster to me. I am sure the game is deeper than that, but as a casual watcher, it just feels like nothing is really going on for several hours. It has just never retained my enjoyment.
This all leads me to All Star games... Pretty much never watch these anymore because they are almost all boring af. I used to enjoy hockey all star skills competition and game, but even that I have lost quite a bit of interest in. Being a sport I don't follow regularly, I really don't care about its "all star" line up. So getting me to dial in, even casually, will basically never happen. TBH, didn't even know it happened. I think last year it was in Cincinnati, still couldn't drag my attention being "local". I used to dial in to home run derby, but I can't recall if that was steroid or post steroid era at this point, I think it was at the end of it and the beginning of post steroid. I don't even remember what happened in the last one I did watch, so no imprint of amazing to me.
Either you know a fancy way to hijack the data, or you have more free time and energy than I do. :D
To be fair, it is entirely possible the framework could have been poorly built for this purpose. I mean when a person designs framework of any kind, they are given a list of what it should be able to handle and build to that purpose. Now a really forward thinking designer may leave in "future proofing" ideas they may think will be really important later but the customer doesn't know they want just yet. More a headache saving thing here, a little extra hard work up front may pay off on easy "upgrades" later concept.
That all being said, I'm a tech hobbyist whose primary job is now refurbishing slot machines and selling them, so, I may be a little out of my field here.
When it comes to physical obstacles, the "just go do it" works most of the time.
When it comes to mental obstacles, it is pretty much pointless. Just like you said.
I have been warring w/ depression for over a decade now, and in some instances it has pushed me into social anxieties. I have met several people through gaming and my best buddy is a guy in England who I game with. Gaming has given me a hobby and common interest with someone across the world and enabled me to have thousands of hours of fun. Sometimes it gets unhealthy, but ironically it isn't me burying into gaming when my depression gets bad, I actually withdraw from it. Gaming gives me a bit of an anchor to climb back out of the chasm the next day, it gives me a "goal". While it can be overdone, just like eating/drinking/smoking/not sleeping, doesn't mean it can't play a valuable role. Gaming took me from a very dark place with the help of other components as well.
The tag point out is spot on... I mean jesus fuck how does one have that tag and rip such wonderful words from their head AND post them. And the dude has more helmet stickers than me... Fuck I am bad.
He slowed down very effectively when he got in proximity to that coach. He had some clue of what he was doing and where he was... How much, who the fuck knows.
I initially thought flop as well. When I saw second replay of it, to me, honestly just looked off balance and fell over his own feet mostly. Either way, shouldn't get that close to even risk it.
I sort of was curious about this. It seems the sidelines have both teams on it, so he may have not even genuinely seen straight and not realized he was that close. Hard to make that argument when you see him clearly slow down in that proximity though. Over all, stupid as hell. The hit was rough but it didn't look like a "go take his head off" command from a coach... Just dumb.
FU, now I want food.
I'll be honest, I've never been so glad to be out of the loop. I found out about this stuff(and it explains the ribbons so much more clearly now) just today from this. I skipped the book/movie and went to the ending which said "Fuck you cancer" and I am super happy to have it all spoiled with that dude.
Now is the appropriate time for booms, right? That's a fair measure here...
Good to hear Hove, so very good to hear. I am happy for you and your family.
Not to nit pick here, but is anyone else slightly offset by the fucking HoF photo job w/ a fucking head band? Come on, that looks dumb as hell.
I will ask it... Who the fuck is that?
Have faith, but the reality is a beloved person was lost and everyone goes through their own cycle accepting it. :D
One of those is a nickname issued about a QB, the other is a sentiment from the other QB. I wouldn't read it as targeting so much.
No Futurama eh? That thing is like gold to me.
I normally wouldn't bet... But if someone can legit tell me how to get this bet in I'd like to get some over action. Setting aside my love, Urban losing 4 games would be pretty astonishing to me. And maybe would give me a little extra umph into my Saturday scream at the TV session.
My Jager inventory will need significantly more restocking if that is to be a thing. And just think, last year I stopped drinking for most of the games entirely...
My grandfather played when he was young. The family was quite happy I never took an interest to football at a young age. He saw first hand a lot of the damage that came from the game, and that was before things really started to ramp up with bigger/stronger athletes. Looking back now at 31, really happy I didn't take an interest early on as well. Not that hockey was better, but I only have one real serious head injury with that.
TBH, at this point, nothing really needs to be said anymore. Civil enough?
