What kills me the most is that people who don't vote because they feel disenfranchised by their choices, or the system, are literally casting the strongest vote possible for that system.
Like, the not getting to bitch if you don't vote argument is kinda funny and true and all, but the folks who rail against our system while leading the fucking pack in propping it up and perpetuating it by not voting...they absolutely kill me.
Nothing says "idiot" like being one of the primary causes for that which you hate.
I feel like being asked to guess her party is a "don't judge a book by its cover" trap, lol. Looking very closely at the picture, her jacket looks super on point and not cheap, her hair is amazing (based on my wife who has amazing hair it is the farthest thing from cheap), and her nails look colored, with a little moon-shaped uncolored area near the cuticle, aka a Reverse French Manicure. Simple tasteful earrings and one ring that looks like it has a rock on it. I don't think she's in with the current crop of Democratic Socialists.
I'll guess Libertarian or the Green Party. Targeting small businesses with reduced regulation and increased tax benefits is part of the Green's platform.
Halloween's almost here, and it's a cold and rainy night...
Necro, keep an eye on that.
My uncle dropped his motorcyle at a very low speed once. Exhaust fell on his leg. Nothing broken, but unbelievably painful. Looked a lot like that.
He ended up going to the doc a few weeks later for a cold, and as he was walking out, he mentioned his leg in passing. Turns out the under the skin it had become infected. They rushed him to the ER and scooped a bunch of foul shit out to the point where he had a golf-ball sized hole in his leg that had to be filled and packed every day for a good while. Had he not mentioned it in passing, there's a good chance he could have lost it, per the doc.
I heard an NPR bit on the article where the "expert" mentioned that the way the came to conclude that there is no safe level was indeed by rolling in data on deaths/injuries from things like drunk driving etc.
It could very well be that as long as you don't engage in risky behavior while drunk, moderate consumption really doesn't harm you.
I had a client years ago who aaaaaaaaaaaaalways wanted to go to Hooters for lunch on my company card.
It was such a bummer trying to pick out a single thing on the menu that I could remotely enjoy eating. Playboy actually had good articles. Hooters did not, in fact, have good wings. The absolute rock-bottom they could have done was tend to their pretense appropriately.
