Future niece was in a car accident and has no short term memory currently. Prayers it's just a bad concussion and she pulls through ok. She's only 16.
I'm sorry to hear that. My prayers go out to her.

Thanks everyone. They're lucky to be alive. The cop who was on scene was sure it was going to be fatal. My niece was in the rear passenger seat.
Goodness! That looks horrific and I'm glad to hear your niece came away with just a concussion. By the looks of that car I think most would have assumed a lot worse. I hope she continues to recover and all involved get over the trauma of being in a crash that leaves a car looking like that.

This is more of a "what are you ashamed of today?" kinda post.

Not to be overly controversial, but . . . I just saw a video of a South African student advocating for the literal, complete abolishment of science in the name of decolonialization.

I'm sure there are many instances in which decolonialization could be a great idea. But . . . abolishing science!? Stop it. Just stop. :blush:

Sure. Do it. Take their science away. Not everyone but just that individual.

Basically that's stripping them bare of all their possessions and leaving them to fend for themselves, naked, unarmed and defenseless in the middle of a forest. Let's see how long it takes until they beg to have their shit back.

Well last week, my mom went to the utility department and apparently, thanks to stupid law changes, anyone 18 or over who still live with their parents must have their name be on the stupid bill as well. (Regardless of those 18-year-olds having a job or not....)

Unfair, I tell you.

What does that mean? Is that like a union strike except where it's the managers who just decide to do it on their own, informally?

Is it a specifically Canadian term?

Lol! Just firings. Big companies tend to liquidate en mass, or in sweeps. Most companies wont fire on a friday because it increases suicide...so they do it on wed ot thurs....when you are "walked out" or "thrown" out by security

So they became known as walkout wednesday and throwout thursday.

Hahaha we call them "Tiesday" because the only time any of our managers wear a tie is to fire someone :rolleyes: :D

Fuck that looks bad. I have no idea how stressed the situation was for you and your family. My car is just slightly crushed at the back and I was terrified and shaky for a few days. Glad she's ok <3

oh and I'm very very unhappy since the beginning of 2k17 because there hasn't been any addition to BHM library. How about we all pitch in and pay Xyantha few hundred bucks to write something new? :D ( or Ashblonde, Undine or Agouderia or, even better, all of them!)

Weren't you writing a BHM fic Anjula? I agree with you though. There has been a lack of smut!

:blush: :blush: :blush: - feels very guilty.

It's true, I haven't been taking good enough care of my fictional friends .. and also of interested readers.

But I have written up most of the finale of "Energetic Expansions" - just haven't had the peace of mind to pull the scenes together, decide on the focus to wrap it up and post it.

I'm also guilty of having on the side, in snippets started with a new story- but I don't know whether the story line is PC enough for the Dims library and audience.
