I know it seems like everyone should know not to try synthetic/spice/K2, but obviously it still happens. If you or anyone you know considers trying it, please don't. Not only because it might be pure AND spiked, but because it's often made by people that don't know what they are doing.

I wrote a comment about my two year addiction to spice when this story first broke. I'm spreading this story, and my story, in hopes that nobody will go through what these people and myself went through.

Some people who overdosed returned to the green and overdosed again, officials said.

Like at that point I feel like natural selection is kicking in and we should prioritize helping other people

Bye, bye, Jimmy! Enjoy the Ugandan prison system; you'll have many opportunities to explore your racism while in there. No doubt they will treat you with the dignity that you deserve.

Jesus I hate this article. It’s just so poorly written, taking quotes and repeating them word for word, not spelling words correctly (further down it says “unresponsible” which isn’t even a word), and the way it is written makes it seem like NASA just wasted 400 million for some useless piece of tech. My dudes, it’s a fucking 15 year old robot that was designed to have a 3 month lifespan, on another planets surface. We can’t even have laptops that last 3 years on Earth. Oppy has been through a lot, and this article just makes it seem like the past 15 years didn’t happen and that NASA lost Oppy when she first touched down.

(Sorry for this rant btw, I have a very emotional connection to Opportunity and I hate it when news outlets try to cover a topic such as spaceflight just so they can get a few extra viewers and they just fucking butcher it because hey have no knowledge about the topic they are covering)

I remember when Spirit and Opportunity landed on Mars when I was a kid. It was cool knowing they were both (or at least one of them) was still out there exploring years later. It's gonna feel weird when Opportunity goes inactive, too.

Fuck fox news for writing like its a 400 million dollar loss. The mission was designed for 90 days and it's been 14 years. I'd say that's one of the greatest space exploration accomplishments in human history.

Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones accused of destroying evidence in school massacre lawsuit

Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones accused of destroying evidence in school massacre lawsuit

Mr. Jones now says he believes the Sandy Hook shooting did occur, but has argued that the case should be dismissed because he was acting as a journalist.

Journalism is pursuit of the truth, not something to hide behind after you've been sued for doing the opposite.

I'm not sure taking things offline in response to social media requests constitutes destruction of evidence. It is likely still on a backup somewhere and still subject to subpoena. Even if those are destroyed everything made public on the Internet is cached on multiple sites. https://archive.org/web/

I'm waiting for Trump to tweet that Alex is innocent and that it's a disgrace the media is ruining him.

But... didn't he claim in his custody case that he's just an entertainer playing a role? Strange that now he's suddenly a Serious Journalist. I wonder what prompted that change...

When I think about UN still today his face is the first thing that comes to mind. He was really dedicated to what the UN stands for. I hope future generations will remember him for what he did and what he stood for. RIP

Same. I had to look up who the current Secretary-General is.

António Guterres.

OK.

RIP, he was certainly an illustrious figure.

Made dad use to talk with pride about this man as a prominent Ghanian when I was younger, it is sad to hear of his passing.

Attempted murder and aggravated robbery with deadly weapon.

~10-20 years for attempted murder and ~5-20 years for aggravated robbery

If there is justice, these fucks would be gone and won't get out until 2050s.

edit:

Looks like there's 3 suspect. The first one (the one that got out of the first car) was caught. The second one (the second car driver who ran over the two) is out at large. Another third driver for the first car is still missing.

The victims still have their money. They had to get their bruises and injuries treated.

Who the hell runs a three man purse snatching operation? Unless they knew ahead of time somehow that this lady was going to be carrying that much cash.

According to the police, they are operating within a network of gangs who stalk high profile targets for easy victims. So these are not isolated incidents, but one that's becoming more common.

IMO Even if they did follow her from the bank it still seems like they knew she had a large amount of cash on her.

Most thieves would have ran off when her husband came out to help. They had to know it was worth trying for and that second thief obviously knew the camera was positioned there with how he tried to hide his face. So an employee or someone had to set this up and know she was going to go to the bank and get that money. They probably followed her to the bank also.

Edit to add That video was over a min and a half long once the first guy grabs her purse. That's a long time to be in front of a gas station on a bus street fighting like that. The first car stayed on the side street watching after dropping him off for over a min too.
