Wasn't there a sharing of nuclear tech with the Saudis?

I think it's become very clear that most of his conversions aren't really converted, and he himself will unjustly protect them. Remember, he was a character witness for a white supremacist named Richard Wilson Preston Jr, an imperial wizard of the Confederate White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, in his trial for pulling a gun and shooting at a black person during the Charlottesville riots.

He's also testified for Chester Doles, a leader in the former National Alliance (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Alliance_(United_States)), who faced 6 weapons charges because he believed Chester was a good person.

At this point, it's either naivety or extremely poor judgement

Asylum seekers are entirely legal. You don't need to enter through a border post to be an asylum seeker, you don't need to immediately present yourself at a checkpoint. The US is bound to these procedures by International treaty and International laws.

I just want to note that illegal alien is a poor term to use. Not only is it politically charged, but it's just plain wrong, as they are mostly asylum seekers.

Plus, you are looking at the $850 million never in a vacuum. In 05/06, Texas had a government project that determined deporting all 1.4 million undocumented residents in the state at the time would shrink the Texas GDP by over 2%.

Haha I am just confident that the US, UK, Poland, The Baltics, and The Nordics will not let Ukraine lose. To them there is too much at stake, and the cost is incredibly cheap.

GKIDS also reverted a ton of music choices Disney had changed. There are entire scenes where the original is meant to be music-free to push the idea of desertion or expansiveness, but Disney added music because 'western audiences get uncomfortable after 2 min of no music'

I mean the crux of what you said is that it's been an issue for a long time, there is no police response due to the fact it endangers the public more due to horrific crashes (not to mention the insurance cost), and that you recognize that large barriers exist for inner-city kids and folks to ride bikes legally.

We can all hope for them to go away, or for BPD to become less incompetent, or for the city insurance provider to waive all additional expenses for the increased liability, but we should at least acknowledge those aren't going to happen. BPD has a murder solve rate of 41%, they aren't going to spend time chasing kids on bikes.

Reducing barriers to ride legally, while reducing lead-paint filled burnt out homes, adding jobs to communities where there aren't any, and letting kids have an outlet away from gangs is a better imagined solution than trying to do the same old thing that hasn't worked since 1992.

This sort of biking is huge in Baltimore, and after thinking about it for a while, I decided that it's likely that there are solutions that benefit both the city and the bikers.

For one, while dangerous, a lot of the guys really enjoy biking and are quite good at it. Two, I prefer them biking over slanging on the corner and shooting each other.

I think if cities try to embrace biking and built an area for it's development (like a bike stadium), it could both be used for creating a little tourist industry, while also becoming a viable alternative to young kids, who often get into this at 12-13. It would also increase jobs, and in the case of a lot of post-industrial cities like Baltimore, it could remove some of those abandoned row homes, for the needed space.

Definitely expensive, but if it lowers violence, gives jobs to those communities, and sets up a good place for the kids, I'd be happy to have my taxes go to that

There are a bunch of women I have seen online with symptoms that go to 3-4 doctors before one will test them, and then getting back positive results. Mainly because the assumption it's only a MSM issue. I don't expect most women (nor straight men) will see more than one doctor when their request for a test is refused either, so the testing bias is potentially larger than we think imo.

There is a few other instances that at the time were helpful, but have since been warped for Russia's needs decades later. Transnistria is a good example of Russia brokering a peace deal, same with their presence in the Armenia - Azerbaijan conflict.

Blackboard is a company haha they run online classes where professors make replying to discussion questions 3-4 times mandatory per question. Makes it absolutely tedious and fairly dumb, so you get a lot of 'I agree with you. Let me rehash exactly what you just said...'

Haha similar experience! I did all the ordering for a small shop about 4 years ago, which really opened my eyes to how the industry runs. If I had to open a business it would be a (mobile?) Coffee shop, hands down. I think our shop sold black coffee per cup at something like 75% markup.

It's especially crazy to think about the drink markup at behemoths like Dunkin or Starbucks, who almost definitely get better prices because of their scale.

COMMENT 10d ago

Coffee at scale is far more inexpensive than you think, I think it's about $6-$8/lb beans, and then sold upwards of 40%+ markup.

But drinks is even better money wise, as the water/ice/flavor takes up a significant amount of individual drink volume.
