Black Friday Zombie Hordes
I'd make a snarky comment about the relative intelligence of zombies versus retail shoppers, but I'm afraid that'd be mortally insulting to zombies. More comparison photos here. It really is hard to tell the difference...
Here is a great quote on a "Just" society
A just society is one in which outcomes tend toward those commonly understood to be fair and right. A just society is one where each citizen is considered equal, and can be generally assured that his rights will be respected and that he will receive due process under the law. A just society is one where a portion of the citizenry can lose an election or a dispute over legislation and accept it, trusting that the process was fair. A just society is not a perfect society; injustices happen, but when they are recognized they are addressed and remedied.Read the rest of the article here
Blue Origin, the private space firm owned by Amazon's Jeff Bezos, has just dropped a huge gauntlet in the race to develop a reusable rocket. It just launched its New Shepard space vehicle, consisting of a BE-3 rocket and crew capsule, to the edge of space at a suborbital altitude of 62 miles. The capsule then separated and touched down beneath a parachute, but more importantly, the BE-3 rocket also started its own descent. After the rockets fired at nearly 5,000 feet, it made a controlled vertical landing at a gentle 4.4 mph.
An armed bystander who fatally shot a man accused of trying to rob a Chicago store on Halloween night with a paintball gun probably won't be charged, police said Monday.
Reginald Gildersleeve, 55, died at the scene of multiple gunshot wounds. The shooter had a concealed gun permit and was legally carrying the weapon when the shooting took place, Officer Janel Sedevic said.
Sedevic told USA TODAY the suspect — Gildersleeve — walked into the store, pulled out the paintball gun, threatened an employee behind the counter and announced a robbery. "A customer in the store drew his own weapon and fired at the suspect," Sedevic said. "There were other customers in the business at the time. The offender was fatally wounded."
Gildersleeve had an extensive criminal record, including prior arrests for robbery, police said. Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told the Associated Press that Gildersleeve was free on bond when the shooting took place.
Igbinosa Oronsaye, whose mother was married to Gildersleeve, told the Chicago Tribune he wasn't convinced the shooter acted properly.
"Some people don't actually know how to use guns," he said. "They go to firing ranges, but it's not the same as a bullet going into someone's body, it's not the same as a bullet going into flesh. ... You just took a brother, you just took a father from a lot of people. Somebody's got to answer for that."
Imagine that you're walking along a road, minding your own business — or perhaps you're driving in your car — when all of a sudden, out of the blue, a cow comes hurtling out of the sky and lands on top of you. This situation, odd as it may sound, happens more often than you might think...
