Giving of a gift is always for the giver, as it is usually something one does to make themselves feel better (by way of making others feel better).
Now whether it is also for the giftee or not depends on if the person honestly thought it would be something well recieved.
Or if they are using it as something in which to have for leverage later ("well I've given you all this stuff and all I'm asking is for this one thing....")

Do the officers in the schools really need M16s? I'd think a pistol would be enough.

He declined to say how the rifles will be stored on a dozen school campuses, but claimed they will be both secure and "quickly accessible."

The department is still developing a training and deployment program, but expects to have the first weapons in service by Thanksgiving.

And if your kid gets a failing grade, they make dad come in and shoot free throws, to prove he's a man.
God my husband would be in the gym for the entirety of my son's scholastic life then :eek:

I was glad for the description of panko, as I have never heard of it before.
Certainly wouldn't call it a commonplace word.

My husband has had very little problem with Windows 8. And he very often runs multiple programs at once.
He also rarely uses the start screen/menu/whatever it's called. Everything he gets to from the desktop.
Also has no touch screen, it's just a regular pc and monitor.

Don't know why some people have such troubles :(

What I got from that is just that they don't mind the commercials that those companies put on tv. Not anything about the companies themselves.

It's a parent's group that wants anything remotely PG-13 to be on tv only after 8pm (because most kids are in bed by that time)

That's my understanding of them at least.

Having watched quite a few episodes of Cops I can honestly believe incompetence.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/posteverything/wp/2014/08/11/what-you-should-know-about-exploding-caskets/

QuoteYou've never heard of exploding casket syndrome (ask your mortician if it's right for you), but funeral directors and cemetery operators have. They sell so-called "protective" or "sealer" caskets at a premium worth hundreds of dollars each, with the promise that they'll keep out air and moisture that — they would have you believe — cause bodies to rapidly deteriorate. Like Tupperware for the dead, they "lock in the freshness!" with a rubber gasket.

But, in reality, you can't protect a corpse from itself. While you're insulating grandma from the outside air, she could be stewing in her own fluids, turning into a slurry from the work of anaerobic bacteria. When the weather turns warm, in some cases, that sealed casket becomes a pressure cooker and bursts from accumulated gases and fluids of the decomposing body. The next time relatives visit grandma, they could find her rotting remains oozing from her tomb in the form of a nauseating thick fluid.
I'm gonna stick with cremation, I think.
Harvest any useful organs from me and burn the rest.

Funniest webcomic I've read for  . . . . . well, ever really.  Been pimping the tits out of it all week now.
Might also want to mention that it's very much NSFW  :lol:

I'll readily admit that I'm glad the kid is going back to school next week.
Not only is it giving him more of a chance to be social (there is no kids his age at the complex) but it also gives me a bit of a breather.

Love him to death but having him around 24/7 starts getting a bit on my nerves after 2 1/2 months.

I have to hand it to Nigel for fixing me good, because I was very much in the Dawkins camp for quite a while.

I was very much confused by his name for quite a while. I would read articles mentioning something he said, or some debate or whatever, and all I could think was, "Wow...that must have been a really awkward episode of Family Feud."
Was beginning to think I was the only one to have thought that.

They obviously have no sense of humor.

They're mutants.
Yes, but they still could look more like turtles than some ogre with a shell.

I won't say I'll never watch the new TMNT movie, but I sure won't pay money to do so.
Between the Shrek-like look, the fact that were actually, purposely created and now I hear there's no pizza loving or Mikey catchphrase? (I can understand if they didn't want to use cowabunga, the new cartoon has booyakasha, they could come up with something) it's just wrong.


There's lots of easter eggs to nostalgia fans, but this isn't that stupid 90's cartoon. It's not as good as the 90's original movie because that movie has closure, and you got the full revenge story in one setting. This new release felt too short, but I guess it's fitting since they want to crank out a sequel, and will go into more of the new IDW comics, and Nickelodeon reboot.

In the movie they mention a magical alchemist in a old japanese legend who create a elixir/water of great power. I'm going to assume it's Krang and his mutagen. In the IDW comics reboot the "Iron Demon" (Krang) made a bargain with the Oroku Saki to serve him in exchange for the mutagen to extend his life. Saki betrays him, and sends him back to hell (Dimension X gateway), and steals the mutagen for himself.

They do say cowabunga, and they tie in with April O neil with the turtles, and Splinter is amazing.

If you want to see a Revenge story with a dysfunctional family trying to find their place in the world then go ahead, and take a chance. There's totally sequels in mind.

When it comes to fighting Splinter totally outclasses his sons, but he is old as fuck.
So less of the campiness of the original cartoons, but more like the cartoons from the 20003 and the new ones? Can handle that.
You make it sound a whole lot better than any ad has.

Beginning to sound like it might need to treat it like I did the Trek reboot. Think of it like an alternate timeline or something.

If only their look wasn't so awful.
