My story: There were two stoplights, the intersection was odd because the street on the left did not line up with the street on the right. So the lights were green and just as I got under the first one, they turned yellow. Before I got to the second light, it turned red. LESS than 3 seconds. I got the ticket in the mail, it was over four hundred dollars. I went back to the location, took pictures of one light being red while the other was still yellow. The police went by the video camera, my ticket was over four hundred dollars. I looked up the state law regarding fines, it was illegal to charge more than fifty dollars for running a red light. I was told the difference was for administrative costs and was ok'd by the legislature. (CA)

I saw the exchange between the two men, and am still left wondering. Why was it funny that the suggestion that "the cause of the impeachment" be called? Is it because he has a history of zero fucks to give?

[–]mikipika 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Humans have appetites. We don't all want the same thing. Some people like to eat steak. Other people like veggies. As far as sexual appetite, we are mostly all born with it. We need it to procreate. For those who have been born with homo and pedo tendencies, they are indeed sourced from this appetite. The difference is, your sexual partner must have the ability to consent. Having your way with a child is a form of rape.

Then I click on a sub, and on that subs homepage I can hit the unsubscribe button. This allows me to check out that sub before making a choice to keep it or not. Don't want to miss out on a potentially great sub.
