  • They’re municipally operated here and we actually had a case a few years back where a small town that couldn’t reasonably afford to operate their own fire department needed to make arrangements with a nearby larger town to have fire emergency response services cover them.

    The larger town said sure, $50 per year per home. Small town had 63 people, but some refused to pay. Fire department said they weren’t going to keep track of which houses were and were not covered, so they had to all be on board or none of them would be.

    Naturally a home later caught fire and burned to the ground. Thankfully no one was inside at the time.

    You are a worm through time.

    The thunder song distorts you.

    Happiness comes.

    White pearls, but yellow and red in the eye.

    Through a mirror, inverted is made right.

    Leave your insides by the door.

    Push the fingers through the surface into the wet.

    You’ve always been the new you.

    You don’t want this to be true.






  • I have a suspicion that was omitted purposefully to prevent people from just sharing their raw saved replays. Since if you have to clip you’ll never end up with people sharing full minute videos where the interesting bit was the last five seconds.

    This is of course just my own supposition from assuming they had a reason for the omission and thinking about what that reason might be

    Pff, whatever. If I’ve got a right hand lane to sit in and let people pass I’ll do 10km/h under the limit (90 instead of 100) and save a non-trivial amount of fuel.

    The cost-benefit on that shifts a bit if I need to make a longer trip, but for my usual drives in the 100-200km range that’s an extra 7-15 minutes on a 1 to 2 hour trip, which barely matters.

    Because he has almost completely faded to obscurity. Most people under 30 probably wouldn’t recognize him at all.

    Superman not being one of the characters in this image is also kind of baffling. Unless the artist believes that Superman could bear the cross.
