He's been placed there to act against public interest
Regulatory capture is a form of government failure that occurs when a regulatory agency, created to act in the public interest, instead advances the commercial or political concerns of special interest groups that dominate the industry or sector it is charged with regulating.
Methanol is far more difficult to ignite than gasoline and burns about 60% slower. A methanol fire releases energy at around 20% of the rate of a gasoline fire, resulting in a much cooler flame. This results in a much less dangerous fire that is easier to contain with proper protocols. Unlike gasoline, water is acceptable and even preferred as a fire suppressant, since this both cools the fire and rapidly dilutes the fuel below the concentration where it will maintain self-flammability. These facts mean that, as a vehicle fuel, methanol has great safety advantages over gasoline. Ethanol shares many of these same advantages.
Since methanol vapor is heavier than air, it will linger close to the ground or in a pit unless there is good ventilation, and if the concentration of methanol is above 6.7% in air it can be lit by a spark and will explode above 54 F / 12 C. Once ablaze, an undiluted methanol fire gives off very little visible light, making it potentially very hard to see the fire or even estimate its size in bright daylight, although in the vast majority of cases, existing pollutants or flammables in the fire (such as tires or asphalt) will color and enhance the visibility of the fire. Ethanol, natural gas, hydrogen, and other existing fuels offer similar fire-safety challenges, and standard safety and firefighting protocols exist for all such fuels.

Medieval manuscripts worth a couple of million pounds, especially jeweled ones. I don't know the price, but I'm sure Rylands Library Papyrus P52, the oldest text of the Gospel of John would get a lot of money.

Just so everyone knows, the Supreme Court ruled in Rodriguez v. United States that police cannot make you wait for a drug dog.
Edit: I know they can still hold you if they want but sometimes exercising your rights requires you to stand up for yourself. Don't let police tread on your freedoms. Be insistent and ask what the probable cause is, let them know you don't consent and won't comply with unlawful orders.
This question made me think of a book with a terrible example of a woman being guilted into dating - and ultimately marrying - a "nice guy":
Tl;dr A guy kept passing as a nice guy, as a medical student, as a WHO physician. He wasn't any of these things. As his charade began to fall apart, he killed those around him, including his wife and children. He meant to kill himself, too, but just couldn't bring himself to do it.
Sadly, it's a true story.
Edit: Sorry to all of you who couldn't see the link on mobile, and thanks to those who provided the name of the book (The Adversary: A True Story of Monstrous Deception by Emmanual Carrère) and let us know there was a movie adaptation, too.
Heat and smoke rise so the stairwell acts like a chimney and this can suffocate you if it's not ventilated well. It reminds me a bit of the Kaprun fire, where many died because they tried to go upwards and asphyxiated:
>The passengers, by this stage aware of the fire and unable to exit through the doors, attempted to break the shatter-resistant acrylic windows in order to escape. Twelve people from the rear of the train, who successfully broke a window with a ski pole, followed the advice of another escapee who had been a volunteer fire fighter for 20 years, and escaped downwards past the fire and below the smoke.
>Eventually, the conductor was able to unlock the doors, allowing them to be manually forced open by the remaining conscious passengers who spilled out into the tunnel and fled upwards and away from the fire. The tunnel acted like a giant blast furnace, sucking oxygen in from the bottom and rapidly sent the poisonous smoke, heat and the fire itself billowing upwards. All the passengers ascending on foot, as well as the train conductor, were asphyxiated by the smoke and then burned by the raging fire.
I'm Canadian and our teacher did the same, she turned on the news. Her husband was visiting New York and had been in one of the buildings a day before the tragic events unfolded. Although I was young at the time I'm proud that we Canadians provided support when our brothers and sisters south of the border needed it most.
Operation Yellow Ribbon^
>Operation Yellow Ribbon (French: Opération ruban jaune) was commenced by Canada to handle the diversion of civilian airline flights in response to the September 11 attacks in 2001 on the United States. Canada's goal was to ensure that potentially destructive air traffic be removed from United States airspace as quickly as possible, and away from potential U.S. targets, and instead place these aircraft on the ground in Canada, at military and civilian airports in the Canadian provinces of Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador, and British Columbia (and also several in New Brunswick, Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec) where any destructive potential could be better contained and neutralized.
I know this is a Serene comment, so I’m writing this comment for other people to read. I’m aware Serene himself does not exhibit the ability to learn.
Here are some examples of the US government’s experimentation on innocent civilians and military troops.
Tuskegee syphilis experiment
U.S. Army-funded drug experimentation on 320 inmates of Holmesburg Prison
U.S. Navy-funded experiment using cow blood injected into 64 prisoners in Massachusetts
The Office of Naval Research funded Stanford prison experiment
Dr. Robert Heath’s U.S. Army-funded experimentation with LSD and bulbocapnine on schizophrenic mental patients and prison inmates
There are many more examples that I did not choose to include, simply because they were “minor” (relative to the other, more heavily funded and unethical examples). There are also likely even more examples which have yet to be declassified for the public.
For more examples, and ones I listed in depth, go here.

No one has posted it yet, but the story of Sylvia Likens comes to mind.
She was locked in the basement of a woman who was paid to take care of her. She was beaten, burned, starved, forced to eat feces (among other things), forced to shove a glass bottle into herself, she was also kept naked. She eventually died of brain hemorrhage, shock, and malnutrition after 3 months of escalating torture.
The movie based on her torture (which is dramatized to make it worse, if that's possible) is called The Girl Next Door, made in 2007, not to be confused with the comedy made in 2004. It was a fucked up movie. I definitely lost sleep the night I watched it.
If you think this is gross, you should hear about the older Berber tradition of fermenting clarified butter—smen—upon the birth of their daughter until her wedding day.
This is better stated as an example of diffusion of responsibility.
The term Bystander Effect is usually reserved for crime/emergency cases.

The North Hollywood shootout.
The infamous bankrobbery gone wrong that turned into an almost hour long standoff between police and armed criminals covered heard to toe in body armor. At one point in the altercation one of the robbers took a full blast of buckshot to the side and kept going. The police didn't have sufficient weapons to peirce their body armor and the shootout ended with one suspect bleeding out and the other commiting suicide.
After that police departments around the country began buying AR15s, body armor, and other high powered firearms en-masse.
That dirt bike is awesome.
Sidebar, why does everyone think Harley’s are cool. I’ve ridden dozens of cruiser type bikes and Harley’s are always the worst. I personally came to appreciate the Honda VTX 1800 back when I was selling motorcycles. It seems like Harley is 90% brand name and only 10% good product.
>The Million Dollar Homepage is a website conceived in 2005 by Alex Tew, a student from Wiltshire, England, to raise money for his university education. The home page consisted of a million pixels arranged in a 1000 × 1000 pixel grid; the image-based links on it were sold for $1 per pixel in 10 × 10 blocks. The purchasers of these pixel blocks provided tiny images to be displayed on them, a URL to which the images were linked, and a slogan to be displayed when hovering a cursor over the link. The aim of the website was to sell all of the pixels in the image, thus generating a million dollars of income for the creator.
It did indeed generate the $1 mil. that Tew wanted. He earned precisely $1,037,100. USD, not UK pounds.
My personal favorite theory is that these communications were used in [database replication](https://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Replication_(computing), where the data was a mix of stolen voter rolls (from Russia), facebook profiles (sold by Zucky), and healthcare records (Spectrum Health Prince/DeVos) were used to create full profiles to de-register voters and fine tune targeted voter suppression. With those combinations of data sets you can target voters with precision. I really hope the reason this story isn't bigger is that these communications are the smoking gun.
School Resource Officers, generally sworn-in cops that are just hired by the school district to keep the school safe/deal with kids stealing or kids that may actually be a threat to other students/faculty.
Guy Fieri, he is one of the faces of the American cable channel Food Network. He became popular in the early 2000s after winning the reality show Food Network Star and getting his own cooking show on the network. He is also a resteraunteur so that's probably significant portion of his wealth.
Just watched this episode today, so I’ll take this chance to ask what I was wondering: does everyone get the reference to Budweiser’s Spuds McKenzie? Those commercials were retired in 1989, so are there are a lot of Futurama fans who don’t know about this guy? Or is that pretty much in the popular culture?
A 'T' in T-ball is a stand attached to a plate; the game is baseball but in the place of a pitcher the T holds the ball for the batter. There is very little aim required for T-ball, but since the players were mentally challanged they were unable to hit the ball regardless.
Wrote this to a similar reply that was keen on protectionism -
But funnily enough Canada as a whole suffers through protection of industries that it isn't very good at, when it could (and should) be focussing those resources on sectors where it is most efficient.
I'm not sure of the gains Canada has made from TPPA (I'm more familiar with NZ and Aust) but it makes a bit of sense that those areas with gains are naturally the industries that will be increasing in export goods and employing all those in the supply chain you mentioned...rather than artificially supporting an inefficient industry such as chicken, where it's the person buying the chicken that ultimately pays the price, and reduces their buying power.
Well, babies are cute...
>Konrad Lorenz proposed the concept of baby schema (Kindchenschema), a set of facial and body features, that make a creature appear "cute" and activate ("release") in others the motivation to care for it.
We know humans and animals (Lorenz used birds) have these tendencies. I don't think it is clear yet if the same response happens between different species. The fact we find puppies and kittens cute would suggest to me it does.
Exactly, wild sheep like the Mouflon shed naturally, but (with the exception of the ‘ancient’, ‘primitive’ or ‘heirloom’ breeds) domesticated breeds were bred by selecting sheep that shed less until eventually they didn’t shed at all.

It's about as likely as California and Texas seceding to form the Bear Star Republic together, at least anytime soon.
The party currently in power does not want to see two new Dem senators and a Dem Representative added to Congress. (The additional representative would be temporary, until the 2020 census.)
Without a conservative state to add with it, Republicans won't risk it (think AK and HI being added at any the same time.) Some have proposed letting northern CA split, but that's not very likely.
If the Democrats manage to take over, that might change. They'd probably be very interested. That can't happen for a few years, however.
This isn't even mentioning the massive debt and other problems.
Edit: on the political demographics
... They favored Rubio over Trump (70% to 13%,) and cast a total of 41,196 votes.
The Democrats favored Hillary over Bernie 60% to 38%, and cast 88,149 votes.
If the same ratio of total votes had held and everyone voted party line, Clinton would have carried PR by about 66% of the popular vote, as Democrats appear to outnumber Republicans two to one.
Keep in mind, though, that in PR the Democrats and Republicans haven't been able to stamp out other parties like they have on the mainland for the last century with onerous ballot access laws, banned fusion tickets, and such. In the governor's race, the New Progressive Party (statehood party) beat the Popular Democratic Party (status quo party) 42% to 39% in a four way race. Members of both parties can also be either Democrat or Republican. The current governor is a Democrat, but others in his party are Republicans.
Sorry to burst your bubble; but:
>He purchased the land for $42,000 to build a muffler shop and subsequently agreed to sell the land to Cody Docheff to build a concrete batch plant
He solid the land that "blocked him in". This would be like selling your driveway and being upset with the government that you can't access your garage from the road anymore.
>He was discovered to be dumping the waste from his improvised tank directly into an irrigation ditch, resulting in the fine.
Again, he sold the land his sewer lines were on; then dumped raw sewage into an irrigation ditch.
>"God built me for this job," Heemeyer said in the first recording. He also said it was God's plan that he not be married or have a family so that he could be in a position to carry out such an attack. "I think God will bless me to get the machine done, to drive it, to do the stuff that I have to do," he said. "God blessed me in advance for the task that I am about to undertake. It is my duty. God has asked me to do this. It's a cross that I am going to carry and I'm carrying it in God's name."
Just another nut job; not a man to be worshipped.
If anyone should be worshipped and remembered today it should be Tank Man; not some phsyco with a bulldozer and some welding skills.
To nuance this story, Dr. Asperger was a nazi supporter himself. Knowing he was aware of the Nazi crimes makes his support arguably even worse. It's also possible he was just playing the long con, but there is some evidence to the contrary.
No you can't. The quote is in reference to the Second Intifada, when Palestinians wearing suicide vests where walking into clubs and restaurants and blowing themselves up because they were mad that Shimon Peres went to the Temple Mount. There is no equivalency to that from the Israelis, only the Palestinians did that
EDIT: For those wondering, the quote is from the West Wing episode "Isaac & Ishmael", a standalone episode written and filmed in the three weeks following September 11th as a way to start the new season of the show with addressing the attacks without having to change the story of the season. It addresses Muslim Extremism and the quote in question is most likely referring to this bombing in Jerusalem which happened a little over a month before the episode was written. It's not a very good episode of the West Wing, one of the more preachy ones, but I thought I'd edit this into my comment for anyone who was curious

They have evolved, I watched the full episode. They can raise the temperature of their stomachs at night and because of the heat the salt gets separated from the water and their kidneys have to do less work. If you watch closely you can see steam coming from their mouths as they sleep, which they use to their advantage, they often grill sea food on their faces when they sleep so their breakfast is nice and salty so they have an energetic start of the day.

No, not really any repercussions. In many instances, the victims of the experimentation had filed lawsuits against the US government, but were not successful because of sovereign immunity, which means the federal government is not able to be sued unless it consents or waives its immunity.
Additionally, the main perpetrators of project MKULTRA were able to escape full investigation, partly because they had successfully destroyed a large portion of the documentation under the direct orders of CIA director Richard Helms. Considering more than 20,000 documents are publicly available today, you can imagine how much even more incriminating information was destroyed.
As I said, considering the track record of the United States government, it would not be entirely unreasonable, although maybe paranoid in the eyes of the general public, to assume state funded unethical experimentation is still occurring to citizens, which we may not even hear about, much less corroborate, until decades from now.
Yes. President Andrew Johnson, who took office after Lincoln's assassination, was later elected to the Senate (though he died shortly after taking office).
The more intriguing example to me is John Quincy Adams, who as President was a competent but sometimes ineffective statesman stymied by a hostile Congress. His successor was the populist and proto-Fascist Andrew Jackson, who infamously ignored the Supreme Court when committing genocide against the people of the Cherokee Tribe (and others), and who our current President rather admires. Adams went on to be elected to 9 consecutive terms in the House of Representatives, and is remembered as a more effective leader in that position than he had been as President.
I was always under the impression that an apex predator had no other, scarier predators that hunt them, not that they were immune to threats of all types.
This will probably get buried but I had an English professor who was good friends with Hemingway's last wife before he died. She told him about Hemingway's last night alive, where he was drinking and dancing and smiling like he would before his accident (his second plane crash did a real number on him). Anyways, after the night ended and they went home, she gave him the keys to his gun collection as a reward for being so well-behaved and acting like his old self. He shot himself the next day.

I just watched the Netflix series "Godless", which peppered it's narrative with some surprisingly accurate historical events. One of the chatacters' families was said to have been killed by what he referred to as "men of god" at the Mountain Meadows Massacre, which was a real event in the old American West.
A band of ravenous Mormon zealots, along with some Native Americans, raped and slaughtered their way through roughly 120 settlers in a fit of religious fury. They believed that the more anguish they inflicted, the more favor they would gain in the eyes of god.
This happened only 30 years before Doyle wrote his novel. The events, and famed savagery of American Mormons, was likely a hot topic in those days.

The Conservative party in the UK doesn't have enough seats for a majority, so they've made a deal with the DUP, a radical Protestant group from Northern Ireland with ties to terrorism against Irish Catholics (a sort of Protestant counterpart to the IRA.) This is particularly troublesome because of the Good Friday Agreement, which, if I understand it correctly (disclaimer: I are dumb Murican,) sets some limitations on what the UK Government can do in northern Ireland. Since the DUP's 10 votes are all that keeps Theresa May's party in power, there's worries that they could essentially blackmail the government into taking favorable actions for them in Northern Ireland.
The DUP was the only group in Northern Ireland to oppose the Good Friday Agreement.
>East Asian age reckoning is a concept and practice that originated in China and is widely used by other cultures in East Asia. Newborns start at the age of one year, and at the beginning of lichun (usually February 4, sometimes February 5th) which is the first of the 24 solar terms, one year is added to the person's age. In other words, the first year of life is counted as one instead of zero, so that a person is one year old in their first year, two years old in their second, and so on. Since age is incremented on the beginning of solar term rather than on a birthday, people may be one or two years older in Asian reckoning than in the modern age system.

Well flag code isn't a law, so as truly disrespectful as wearing an American Flag Speedo, or wearing an actual flag as a cape may be, it's not illegal. Same way it's not illegal to burn the flag.
As u/Giovanni_bertuccio pointed out below and upon further research, I take back what I said. It is law, but punishment is not enforced
Here's his comment
"The flag code is law - it's in the US Code, hence the name. That code has provisions to punish those who violate the code. Those provisions have been deemed unconstitutional by the Supreme Court, because they would punish people for free speech.
So the code is effectively an on-your-honr thing unless your job requires following it."

If self-driving was a thing, then people could spend more time in their car doing work, watching a movie, etc. Next thing you know people are living farther away because land is “cheaper”, and driving more. Now you have more people driving than before, and city streets can only handle so many cars. So now all that city congestion is backing up onto the highways.
The solution is high-density infrastructure with more mass-transit options (subways, bus-rapid transit), while also making cities more walkable and bikable.

I don’t know about the specific structure of these feathers but this looks like an example of structural coloration. Someone with expertise in biological structures might be able to provide more info but the gist is that there are different mechanisms for causing this phenomenon including things like microstructures in the feathers that cause the interference of visible light, allowing for different colors at varying angles, etc..

It doesn't degrade US spying capabilities, it only theoretically enables Chinese spying. Phones communicate across the various cell networks using open standards, and the NSA is confirmed to have a relationship with at least one telecom, so what phone you use is a moot point from that perspective, they can engage in man in the middle attacks just fine.
If Huawei started offering disk encryption like Apple does, then the FBI would shit about 5 bricks because there would be no way they could coerce them into unlocking a phone, but it still wouldn't serve to keep them out of a phone, only make it more difficult to access the information. That still wouldn't affect the NSA though, because cell phones already encrypt calls. Which obviously means that the NSA is just collecting junk data from telecoms and have no way to decrypt the days they're collecting...

The 90s was a period of prosperity. GDP was up, the Federal Budget went from a deficit to a surplus. Jobs were prevalent, having a college education meant you could literally do anything you wanted. We weren't engaged in any major wars. Sure, we also had Desert Storm, Kosovo, and Monica Lewinski but it was generally a good time to be an American. Which all seemed to end on 9/11 actually - the true end of the 90s.

Painting by Monet - The House Seen From the Rose Garden.
This painting the red and yellow version was painted as seen through his left eye which was limited to the wavelengths allowed by his cataract.The clouded lenses prevented him from seeing anything but reds and yellows.
The painting in deep blue and violet (the one originally posted) is assumed to have been Monet's color interpretation with his right eye, the lens of which had been completely removed, a condition called aphakia. Through this lens-less eye, Monet could see deep into the blue spectrum, and perhaps into the ultraviolet range, which is usually obscured by the lens of the normal eye.

She was an active member of the antisemetic, pro-fascist America First Committee, so yeah, I feel comfortable judging her. Birth of a Nation is a film rooted in white supremacy, so judging the artists involved in its production is entirely fair game.

I don't want to stray too far into political science here, but this overt use of fear and power over the population seems grotesque. Maybe there is justification that we don't see for this kind of action, but to me personally I don't see it, but if someone else does please explain it.
I also think that we should keep in mind that the government has a tendency almost like gravity to act in its own interest against the governed, including granting itself powers at the expense of the people. I just think this should be kept in mind when this kind of nefarious activity that causes so much fear is reported on.
It seems almost like government sponsored terror.
I guess my legal question would be what enumerated power specifically is the government using for this action to reach so far into the country?
Apparently CBP can;
>search and detain people without a warrant as long as they feel they have “probable cause” to suspect that someone is in the country illegally or smuggling contraband
I think that maybe we should limit drug prohibition powers granted the central government through the supreme court interpretation of the commerce clause in Gonzales v. Raich that allows them to use it as an excuse for everything.

Trump got over 100 less than George HW Bush. His claim isn't even close to true.
I think context is important. Japan was a developing country run by an authoritarian regime until quite recently. It still has quite a few artefacts/skeletons from that era.
Even developed countries have similar things of course (think Project MKUltra... https://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_MKUltra). People with disabilities are still getting fucked over today in multiple ways and there are circumstances where modern lawmakers will argue that (for example) people with Down syndrome should be sterilised to prevent them from having kids (on the basis thy can't look after them properly without support).
This kinda stuff is just the usual in places like China and Vietnam where people wouldn't even question it (similar to Japan back in the day)... you can only hope they too reach Japan's level of governance one day. However, most of the developing world focuses on growing economies rather than social progression.
It's helpful to differentiate between errors and mistakes first:
>An 'error' is a deviation from accuracy or correctness. A 'mistake' is an error caused by a fault: the fault being misjudgment, carelessness, or forgetfulness. Now, say that I run a stop sign because I was in a hurry, and wasn't concentrating, and the police stop me, that is a mistake. If, however, I try to park in an area with conflicting signs, and I get a ticket because I was incorrect on my interpretation of what the signs meant, that would be an error. The first time it would be an error. The second time it would be a mistake since I should have known better.
That's not true actually, only with a parent's permission can a child be married off at 15, and that's only in Missouri and Georgia. Ohio and Rhode Island have the next lowest age for parental consented marriage set at 16, and the other states are higher. Without parental consent a person would need to be at least 18 years of age, in all but Nebraska and Mississippi where it's 19+.
It feels like Chess ... Wikipedia page
Proposal of a Secondary Resolution: Apologies for any facetiousness, but this begs to question ... If Breitbart(dotcom) is the "unreliable source" founded by Community Consensus; Then this conclusion must demand Wikipedia to remove every source of Brietbart(dotcom) from every WIKI page that presents it as a viable source. How many articles is that(?) Do you imagine? Masem, BusterD, TyTyMang, Geni, Capitalismojo, JzG, Arzel, 22.214.171.124 & 126.96.36.199 --j0eg0d (talk) 02:28, 28 May 2015 (UTC)
It is addressed beautifully in the YA novel by Jason Reynolds (which I recommend the hell out of, by the way). Jefferson made some mistakes as a younger man and his life turned around when he met Rio. His biggest fear is to see his son make the same mistakes that he made. Between his choices and those of his brother Aaron, Jefferson felt that it wouldn't be right to give his son the Davis legacy and wanted Miles to start on a better path like his mom did.
On a related note, Bendis should have done more research, as the name "Jefferson Davis" is kind of a strange choice for a black character.
As long as we have the system that we do (single member districts elected on plurality), we'll always be a two-party system. It's so predictable that it's a law in predictable science. https://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duverger%27s_law
In some places trafficked women are almost always eastern european. So...pretty much exclusively caucasian.
I get what OP is trying to do here, just like every other OP who posts this, but it also shows a real lack of understanding about what sex trafficking actually is.
I like to start folks off with the wikipedia page to intro them to the five distinct types. It IS real, but is is not some weird underground rail road of rich white ladies.
ETA: I can't spell for shit these days.
Maybe the fox population had rebounded since the Hunting Act of 2004?
Just a theory. I'm not sure the actual impact the Act had on fox populations.
Edit: Apparently the hunting ban doesn't have anything to do with it, but there HAS been a dramatic increase in the fox numbers - here's an article discussing the explosion in the fox population in England has exploded in recent years
> In most modern forms, the song involves spelling the name of the farmer. There is no consensus as to the name or sex of the dog, but both points are generally considered to be irrelevant; some folks might be confused by who Bingo is, which has led to some pictoral versions of the song depicting the eponymous Bingo not as the farmer but as the dog.
Wow. You lads really brought it. This takes our sub to on par with the other CSS rich sites. Good to see the additions to the mod practice squad paying off.
One suggestion. You had the *hypocycloids "in suspension" in the background in the last version. I think having a "backdrop" is important because the gold font washes out on the white background. Is there any way to shadow the text or change the base screen to a light grey to make the font pop?
Good work, though. Definitely gives r/steelers some stroke.
Research to show what? That LGBT people have only recently started to be treated as legitimate humans in the past few decades? A brief skim of the history of transgender people in the US Wikipedia page will show you. People were imprisoned and sent to insane asylums. People lost jobs.
Of course people hid their identity. It was a danger to themselves and those around them.
Take the oppression away -- being transgender doesn't mean you might get jailed or killed anymore!
Yeah, more people will probably embrace their identity and be open about it.
You’re 100% right about that, but I feel that the border area is/was more of a point of conflict between the IRA and security forces, in areas like South Armagh etc which are heavily republican. However, I suppose you’re in a way right that Loyalist paramilitaries did play a significant enough role in that area too. Anyone interested can find out about two of the more higher profile incidents here:
Don't worry about it. Just remember when talking to people outside North America.
In North America, the term "hibachi" refers to a small cooking stove heated by charcoal (called shichirin in Japanese) or to an iron hot plate (teppan) used in teppanyaki restaurants.
Aside from the already interesting nature of Nihilism, the nuances and intricacies of different forms of it and stances against them are highly complex and philosophical.
Solipsism is... well, I'll leave it up to you to read of it.

You need the https://www, like so.
I guess I'll just post this comment again:
Size of the country doesn't matter, healthcare is dispensed per capita. The US has 100 times more people to treat? Well it also has 100 times more people funding it, and 100 times more doctors. Administration of the system could also be done at the state level, doesn't have to be federal.
Money to secure the border and address other illegal immigration issues in exchange for universal healthcare? I'd like to see anyone in Congress try make that deal, unlikely though.
And I'll add, Europe does have an illegal immigrant problem.
The case of Dean Corll always amazed me. Thirty teenage boys disappear from the same Houston neighborhood and the police never take notice of it. Imagine what people got away with in the pre-modern era.
Do you know what menstruation is? Here: https://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Menstruation
tl;dr: When a woman gets her period, she may bleed from her vagina for a certain number of days once a month. One of the reasons that the availability of fresh sanitary pads and tampons is important is because if you leave the menstrual fluids hanging around the urethra for too long, you're at risk for developing a urinary tract infection.
Most of these cults own the town, meaning they are the local government, local police, local courts. Also, in the past when the state has tried to intervene it has gone poorly and the politicians involved were politically shamed and damaged, so future politicians weren’t too eager to get involve and looked away instead.
Edit: Here’s an example of the political ramifications of going after these people. It’s from Arizona but it’s basically the same cult and they’ve moved back and forth from Utah and Arizona
That's not what happened at all. Why do people make shit up like this? It's not even a clever reason, it's ridiculous.
They killed her because she killed a trainer. The townspeople were angry and threatened to not allow the zoo to return if the animal wasn't killed. Two minutes on Google:
Putin is impressed. His plan to separate America from its allies through his puppet Trump is just the latest little victory in a growing series. There's a whole blueprint for it, and I'm sure Putin's copy is well-worn and filled with notes and checkmarks.
According to Wikipedia, ADWD was announced 4 months prior to release, so if TWOW was to be released in Q2 (which I doubt it will at this point) we'd likely hear the announcement around now.
> "On March 3, 2011, publishing imprint Bantam Spectra announced that the novel would be released on July 12, 2011. Martin delivered the manuscript to his editor on April 27, 2011..."
Wish i could tell you but i couldn't find any records of all time assists. But they are still behind the likes of pele and romario in terms of goals even with assists added. https://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_men%27s_association_football_players_with_500_or_more_goals
Interestingly, it's from the Latin word for "sewer." In pagan Rome the sewer system was overseen by Cloacina, a goddess whose domains were sewer systems and sexual intercourse.
Won't happen unfortunately. The United States has a law that says if the Hague tried, the US military would intervene. Interesting to note that it was passed by the republicans after 9/11:
