Depression, it sucked. Basically didn't leave the couch, was unemployed and very sedentary. But I'm doing a lot better now. Leaving the house helps ;) Nice work. 60lbs is amazing. How much did you change your diet? [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Is all lion hunting illegal everywhere all the time? I think the story is gross and horrible but as I was trying to explain to DH he said lion hunting is not illegal. He was being a douchy pro-hunting guy/pro-gun guy who has never hunted and has no gun. I just said I am not and expert all types of big game that is illegal or illegal but it seems that hunting on this preserve was pretty illegal and I thought they were fairly endangered. I know tigers and rhinos are. 2 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Police aren't "murdering" black people "left and right," either. Most such shootings are unquestionably justified, most "controversial" cases end up being justified, leaving only a tiny handful of cases where there was legitimate error or misconduct by cops. [ Reply | More ]

All the evidence is fairly conclusive. Brown had committed an assault and theft earlier, was strolling down the middle of a street rather than using the sidewalk, then flipped out and attacked a cop who cautioned him about his behavior. His eyewitness friend turned out to be a thug with multiple arrests who lied about what had happened. [ Reply | More ]
