yeah my thought is that you'd at least be shitting terribly for days

yes oyster, "our" cops

training for US police forces is not standardized across jurisdictions. it's not your fault but you're asking a question which cannot be answered essentially

    SETH STOUGHTON: The short answer is no. There is no federal standard. Different states set different minimum requirements for officers. And then at the agency level, different agencies can adopt minimum training requirements as well.

Do you like banana? I would recommend banana over apple.

No senolytic flavonoids in banana that I am aware of. Don't mistake this for food. :)

How early do such women start?

Translation: at what age do you see earliest “dark blue infants” emerge in parental diagnoses?

My n is under 10 but there's generally an "I always knew" aspect to their perspectives on the situation.

I suspect the correlation is not with the age of their children but with their exposure to the term on the Internet.

Sure, it's dope, it's just not evidence of anything supernatural.

Images of gas output of corn! Great. I love it.

    Paranormal claims of Kirlian photography have not been observed or replicated in experiment by the scientific community.[31][32] The physiologist Gordon Stein has written that Kirlian photography is a hoax that has "nothing to do with health, vitality, or mood of a subject photographed."[33]

Dude Kirlian photography is dope. (1) clip electrodes to your subject (2) lay your subject out on a piece of film (3) zap the bejeesus out of your subject with high voltage (4) develop the resulting arc contacts. Bonus points to darlinareyousleepy for finding a pun in all of this.

Nope. Basically what am_Uniton said but also if I did believe in anything supernatural auras would never go on that list. Auras are corny

OftenBen  ·  2 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Auras are a migraine symptom.

Hit me up if you need help figuring out where to live, or just stuff to do.

Richmond area! I see in the voting thread you mention Spanberger. I’m glad she won! A colleague from Richmond had turned me on to Spanberger a few weeks ago.

I’m glad to see VA turn more blue.

No shit? I live in Richmond.

I voted.

I got rear ended this morning. Damage wasn’t significant(we’re talking paint damage here) and my car is an established beater I have paid off. Don’t think I’ll be calling the other lady’s insurance. My position is if this car runs I’m driving it. But now my upper back is all stressy.

Work is good. I am applying for a new role in the same department this week. (Possibly today.) I can’t remember if I mentioned this, I think I did. I am very excited. It’s good to do something different.

Continuing to plan my move to VA in 6 months. Planning a haircut, too. All sorts of fun new stuff for a Fun New Refugee. Hell, I’ve been eating chicken, rice and broccoli for lunch all week, even. ;)

Pretty happy with election results, I’ll say.

Really want to finish Owen meany this week. I know a few of you guys have been interested in my thoughts. For now I’ll be brief; I find the novel disappointing. I have about 100 pages left to go.

Cheers, Hubski, happy hump day.

    But now my upper back is all stressy.

I would go ahead and get it checked out now. Because if it gets worse in 6 months, you're not going to be able to prove a causal connection unless there's something documented now.

Where in VA will you be?

Call the insurance and take your free money. I called insurance for minor bumper damage and got 1k in compensation. Replacing and color matching bumpers is really expensive and you can legaly take the money and not do the repair. Totally worth it
