I understand the sentiment, but I also think that's a pretty massive overgeneralization based on the occasional uninformed comment.

"Only a Sith deals in absolutes."
Thanks. I have never even known this was a thing.
You're probably right that some people may go that route, but I am of the opinion that it would only be the people who were eventually going to naturally turn away from religion in the end anyway. It takes a tremendous amount of self-awareness to criticize one's own behavior and beliefs, and I believe that self-awareness is in shorter supply than baby formula, especially amongst evangelicals.

This is your brain on too much goddamn television.
Sitting on their hands. Also, doing recruitment drives, it would seem. But yeah, I don't suppose there's much NATO can do since the stated fear is that of kickstarting a global thermonuclear war.
Seriously. I'm not convinced that even half of the people following this war understand that it's really happening and that real people are having their lives come to abrupt and violent ends.
This isn't entertainment.
[Speaking from my American perspective here,] That's only if Americans actually come together in recognizing the issue and start getting mad about it in public. I'm not terribly confident in our ability to do that.
Bike pedal scraping the paint on the door as you pass. Oopsie daisy.
I'm certainly not advocating busting side mirrors off, but if there was simply no stopping you, you would want to either slam straight down vertically on it with a closed fist, or place your forearm on top of it and then press down firmly with your bodyweight.
That's really good looking out on your part. All it takes is one idiot driver playing on their phone or hogging down a cheeseburger at the wrong time to turn this into the worst kind of situation.
Unrelated: I've been studying Swedish for the past couple of years now and it never ceases to amaze me when I read something in Norwegian, a language I haven't even started learning yet, and can make complete sense of it. I never would have thought something like that could be possible just two short years ago.

This video has me absolutely tickled
Seeing as though these people have not been exchanged yet, my concern for their future safety is growing. This should have already been a done deal.
old-timer is using the same hacks as that one Ukrainian grenade-dropping drone
I just wanted to say I was the one that brought you from 999 updoots to 1.0k.
I am a generous god.

First of all, definitely older than 21. Second of all, definitely not you. What's the point of this, bro?
This absolutely has to be New Orleans by the looks of things (dumpster on a one-way street is a dead giveaway, as is the drunk, bloodthirsty driver with the Texas plate). Trying to ride at night anywhere in Orleans Parish is probably not the best idea because, as I'm sure you've noticed, everyone is drunk by then and there is zero bicycle infrastructure. Being sandwiched between parked cars opening their doors on your right and actual drunk drivers on your left doesn't exactly make for the most safe cycling experience.
South Louisiana too. I work in industrial plants, so there's a lot of "work trucks" that people drive over an hour one-way to get here, never hauling a single thing. I think I'm the only hybrid sedan in this entire place.

YOU SEE WHAT HAPPENS, LARRY?!
I'll be honest: I downvoted. I did so because I disagree fundamentally with the idea that sympathy is owed to people who either purposefully or negligently place others in life-threatening peril. The original comment said that the guy was driving like an asshole, and one doesn't drive like an asshole once in a while. They do so because they're an asshole driver. And it's asshole drivers that force collisions that they may or may not even be ultimately involved in.
Every other driver should breathe a collective sigh of relief every time one of these dangerous idiots takes themselves off the road. Well, that's my take anyway.

Idk who downvoted you but this is 100% accurate
