  1. It is sad that The Onion really is America's finest news source. https://www.npr.org/2022/05/25/1101269886/the-onion-mass-shooting-satire ‘No Way To Prevent This,’ Says Only Nation Where This Regularly Happens Today 9:00AM Alerts UVALDE, TX—In the hours following a violent rampage in Texas in which a lone attacker killed at least 21 individuals and injured several others, citizens living in the only country where this kind of mass killing routinely occurs reportedly concluded Tuesday that there was no way to prevent the massacre from taking place. “This was a terrible tragedy, but sometimes these things just happen and there’s nothing anyone can do to stop them,” said Idaho resident Kathy Miller, echoing sentiments expressed by tens of millions of individuals who reside in a nation where over half of the world’s deadliest mass shootings have occurred in the past 50 years and whose citizens are 20 times more likely to die of gun violence than those of other developed nations. “It’s a shame, but what can we do? There really wasn’t anything that was going to keep this individual from snapping and killing a lot of people if that’s what they really wanted.” At press time, residents of the only economically advanced nation in the world where roughly two mass shootings have occurred every month for the past eight years were referring to themselves and their situation as “helpless."

  3. It's kind of gross that we even have a K-12 school shooting database but we do. The list was sent to me by a teacher. Google will give you plenty of options. https://www.chds.us/ssdb/data-map/

  5. From a teacher friend: I was up early writing our representatives. I detailed to them how I had to teach 9 year olds to exit a window and run fast but silent to hide in the nearby neighborhood and knock on doors and hide behind houses. How I had to teach them to expect me later and not look back for me. Because what can I do but stand by the door with the frigging fire extinguisher to give them more time to get farther away while they go through the window one by one. I told our Senators and Representative I was doing my job and they need to do theirs. Fuck. How many times have I written the same letter?
  6. If we had done more in terms of gun control, yes, add resource officers. We have done very little on the gun control side. We continue to do nothing to protect our children in schools. That's absurd. This should bother every person in this nation. We are training teachers to drop kids out of windows instead of having them teach math.

    Rain delay

    Except in AA Arena.
  8. Smart move. I hope you ate all of the cake though.

    Rain delay

    In Dallas at the Mavericks game. Go figure.
  10. Happy Birthday Beanz! That's quite a meal.
  11. I think they do more active shooter drills than fire or disaster drills now.
  12. Heard this from a teacher today. They did active shooter training in school today. Our country has 5% of the World’s population. Our country has 43% of all the guns on Earth
  13. $100 is awesome for that car. I got $25 for my '78 Datsun B210. Both of those cars in the book crap cars. The Datsun is #25 and I think the Citation is #16
  14. I checked the Guinness Book of World Records and 20k is the record for a Citation.
  15. I got in no problem. Must be you they are blocking. You should take it personally.
  16. I buy Santa Cruz p-butter.

  18. Cheetos are the new power food.
  19. I saw this one recently. I bet you could do something similar with your truck.

    Today's ride

    It was an amazing ride. We were supposed to retrieve an elk collar, but we were so cold by the time we finished riding and the trail looked super muddy so we bagged it. We saw an animal that we could not identify. I thought it was a lama, my friend was convinced it was a kangaroo. Could have been one of these.
  21. It's been years since I've had a flat. I probably have one spare tube for each bike.
  22. One ski and three bike helmets.
