It's only murder if they find the body, otherwise it's just a missing persons case.

@  Telly : (24 January 2021 - 02:31 AM)

so light yagami is a BAD role model? but ive already got a death note...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 January 2021 - 11:43 PM)

Do you always model proper behavior after anime characters?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (23 January 2021 - 06:34 PM)

Don't forget Yu-Gi-Oh and the Millennium items.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 January 2021 - 02:51 PM)

There was a five season anime with wearing relics as the premise.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 January 2021 - 01:16 PM)

You don't wear relics, you enshrine them.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 06:23 PM)

Wrong holey... and probably the wrong way to dress too.

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2021 - 06:09 PM)

If your underwear is old and holy, it is considered a relic and should be protected with your life.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 02:04 PM)

That's the argument we keep making: but I still need to wait till feb 8th minimum to replace my holey underwear.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:57 PM)

Personally I'm glad Ontario wasn't so misguided as to try to define what is or isn't "essential" for big box stores like Walmart to sell. If someone is stuck at home literally for weeks and unable to go out, who's to say a new TV or game console isn't essential (if only for one's sanity) if theirs breaks down?

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:55 PM)

Although fortunately, Ontario's daily cases and positivity rate has been on a steady decline for the past week or so; if they can get the vaccinations back on track, there is some hope.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:53 PM)

And as far as Canada's lockdowns go, I'm guessing none of them will end until late March, or perhaps the beginning of April. What small businesses that might be left at that point will be allowed to open for their going out of business sales.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:52 PM)

Unfortunately the CEO of Target Canada made more money by running the company into the ground than he ever would have had he made it a success, so there was zero incentive to succeed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Target made some serious mistakes when they came into Canada. They focused on opening like 150+ stores within a 2 year timeframe and had no online infrastructure whatsoever; their website literally only contained legal blurbs and a store locator... lacking even the ability to see what they sold in stores, or if it was in stock and, if so, where. They should have started with 1/3 the number of stores with a full online experience including online shopping and inventory checking

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:35 PM)

See; quebec is under a new lockdown, have been since the 26th. It's supposed to end the 8th of february, but probably won't. Stores are only supposed to sell necessities (in deference to the stores which are closed.), but the quebec government made no effort define what counts as a "necessity", only punished them for getting it wrong. So I can buy all the candy I want, but not underwear, boots, winterwear, small appliances. Hell, my brother had to explain why he wanted a FUSE when he needed to fix his stove shortly before new years.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:31 PM)

Targets don't exist in canada anymore. They lasted like 3 years before abandoning the market. But even if they WERE still here: they would be under the same poorly defined restrictions as walmart.

@  -LittleAutob... : (22 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

Target's better-

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

HA! my walmarts can't even sell underwear. There's no clearances going on up here.

Or is the wound the Earth healing.

@  unluckiness : (18 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

Healing is just destroying the wound

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 06:08 PM)

But eventually destroys everything.

@  tigerhawk : (17 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Heals many wounds

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 02:03 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2021 - 07:53 AM)

Covid?

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 09:50 PM)

At this point, if I'm going to die then it won't be the wait what killed me. It didn't help any, mind you, but it's not what got me.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 January 2021 - 09:37 PM)

Technically we are all literally dying to play with our next figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 05:36 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 04:39 PM)

Still waiting for my box from BBTS to arrive.

@  tigerhawk : (16 January 2021 - 04:29 PM)

@  tigerhawk : (12 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:56 PM)

One thing I noticed from what I got to watch of the inauguration is Donald and his wife came out of the White House looking extremely pensive, but Mike Pence was grinning like a lunatic.

 

Struck me as odd and many of my coworkers watching with me noticed and commented on it as well.

 

Also got a real laugh out of Pelosi shaking Trump's hand at chest height. Looks like somebody's worried enough about Donald's grabbing tendencies to want to put plenty of distance between his hand and her nether regions. Out of all the protests of the day, I think that one was the most solid.

I do wonder if Trump, up to this very day, thought there'd be some way to stop this.  Keep him from the office.  It's been clear he doesn't really want it.  That running was a joke to him.  

Now he's well and truly stuck, as are we all.

I'm curious when he was informed that he'll no longer have access to his Twitter account? I mean, I remember Obama's Blackberry and the bruhaha surrounding it back in '08. I mean, he'll still tweet - it'll just be handled by his staff and not himself and likely toned down from dictation to posting.

Bruhaha over Obama's blackberry?  Didn't see any of it.

 

Pence is likely thinking "this is great.  I'm gonna be able to do anything I want and this Orange Piss Pot is gonna take all the blame!" or some variation.  Donald is probably thinking "Uh...this isn't as glamorous as I was led to believe."  But he won't quit.  He can't quit.  Cause the GOP won't let him until he becomes politically inconvenient.

 

Ironbite-such as when the blowback comes from the leaked FBI investigation into his Russian ties.

Starting a new topic. Today is officially the first day of the Trump presidency. I see a lot of shit on facebook and a lot of "Hey, no political talk on here." in the vein of "controversial topics" which now include the words "the President".

 

This is bizzaro world for a lot of people now. We have a lot to lose if this goes south. I closed the other topic so we could start this topic as a new point of reference. 

 

Someone on Facebook posted these stats - I'll post them here.

 

Inauguration Day
Approx Gas $2.35
Approx Dow 19,819
NASDAQ 5550.85
Unemployment 4.7%

 

This is our benchmark - our starting point. 

 

Welcome to the Trump Presidency - Day 1.

Other thread got locked as I was responding to Paladin's post about criminalizing peaceful protest so I'll put it here -

 

It's actually criminalizing blocking highways and the like, let's not get too over-dramatic here. A couple of those are stupid and one in particular seems rather dangerous and misguided, but in general they increase penalties for activities that aren't protected by the First Amendment. You don't have a Constitutional right to block traffic (unless it's a situation where you can get a permit, of course) even if you do so peacefully. And even then if you're physically restricting the movement of someone, or many someones, and interfering with their lives and jobs I'm not sure I would call it all that peaceful.

*cries into his beer*

 

MY THREAD GOT LOCKED!  NUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!  WHATEVER SHALL I DO NOW!?

 

Well post in this.

 

So yeah.  Gonna keep on saying this until I'm either proven wrong so badly this nation is a hellhole the likes of which Satan would be impressed by or proven right.  Trump is in this for himself and that's it.  Not the GOP, not the American people, himself.  The GOP is sitting on a treasure trove of impeachable offenses that will get used the second he becomes a political determent.  Which should be around mid-terms.  The GOP leadership didn't want him, the fringe did.  The GOP hates the will of the people and will work to undermine that as best they can.  Meanwhile, Trump's gonna try and do all that he can to make sure his personal fortunes are secure from now until eternity.  They'll come together on a few things but for the most part, they'll be at odds.

 

Ironbite-and the constant criticism that comes with this job is going to wear on him so badly.

You wound me, sir. I am not so vicious as to want others to suffer... 'cept for maybe the occasional stubbed toe. However, celebrating  his pain and wishing it upon him are two (marginally.) different things.
