Out of the Blue

Happy Canada Day, ya hosers! True facts about the U.S.'s northern neighbor: It has a larger land-mass than the U.S., and is the world's second-largest country. It also has more coastline, which makes sense considering it touches three oceans. And speaking of water, more than half the world's lakes are in Canada! A final contrast worthy of note is that Canadians actually know how to make proper beer on a large scale, something that's lost on most of the oat soda companies in the U.S. So toques off to those in the Great White North, people so nice they share the world's largest unprotected border with a nation full of complete lunatics.

How come the July 4th (Highland Park) practicer of America's Greatest Pastime, freedumb and the 2a had his bail denied?

Because you need a reason for that, while you can just set outlandish bail and save you the trouble?
Outlandish bail is against the constitution.
The Excessive Bail Clause of the Eighth Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits excessive bail set in pre-trial detention.

Bail can be denied for several reasons, this person will never see another day outside of a detention center.
There’s more than enough reasons to deny him bail, because it is hard to do is not a good one.

USA justice:
- Lawless Enforcement by low IQ thugs.
- Lawmakers selling themselves to the highest bidder or dedicated to maintaining their hold on power and a rich livelihood.
- An archaic Constitution interpreted by a lifelong, king-like whimsical SCOTUS.
They could turn mad, be incompetents, religious fanatics, be married to seditionists, or just dicks/tyrants deciding for hundreds of millions.
And without any recourse at all.

I kind of agree, but at the same time I realize the actual problem is over population. We need a few billion less people on this planet. I did my part by not having any children.

Horrible, reminds me of a dire case of incremental circumcising.

Days ago we heard of Dragon Dogma 2 in the making, so, been playing DD1.

Even with a run speed mod of 1.4, with looong treks, I add the Cheat Engine speedhack slider up to 1.5 or 1.6.
Now *that* is fast (put 15 one time by error, phew, whoa).

Anyway, got 2 PortCrystals prisms, to drop anywhere for teleporting (spending round Ferrystones).
With C.E. gave me some 200 (of both kinds, 2 Bytes, Exact, 2 addresses for each, put value 200).
Now I have PortCrystals all over the map:
A whole bunch of escort quests, etc ?
Please, step here, and ... there already, done.

That's so young. Tragic.

I wonder what kind of cancer he had. He said the first indication was when his arm started hurting, so osteosarcoma? That tends to hit people 10-30.

Enh, Canada has more than it's share of extremist kooks too. They're just endemic to our species unfortunately. I'd say the US has a far more varied and interesting selection of beer, wine, and spirits simply as a byproduct of population alone. I never went in for the crap from Molson or Labatt - neither of which have been Canadian for a long time now - anymore than their US counterparts making the similar corresponding swill they call lager. Like the Germans said on The Simpsons, "My English is not perfect, but I have to tell you, your beer is like swill to us. Do I have that right? I am saying that only a swine would drink this beer." Even most "craft" brewing is really just big business. Still, I'm glad for the selection of smaller, more interesting craft and artisanal hooch.
