I always related more to Coyote, though seems I am in the road runner role this time in life. I gave her the debriefing in the format of a radio news show, which made her look at me funny long enough for me to escape. I think it passed well.

I didn't know until this morning that the shooter in our latest incident was black, and I didn't know the female victim was under 30. So perfect, now let us see whether the blame changes from guns.

Even the earliest newscasts identified the shooter as a previous co-worker.
And although the man is Black, I don't think I heard any tv remarks about his skin color.

These killings were along the lines of a disgruntled employee going "postal",
and the uniqueness of the event happening "on camera".

Sorry, this incident doesn't fit your mindset at all.

News doesn't mention race unless/until they find it tickles the story.

The initial reaction was to blame guns, as noted by Sycamore in post 5961.

If I'm right, blaming guns will fall off sharply now; shooter is black AND gay, so the game of "let's own the narrative" is lost.

We moved last week and intended to store some things in the attic over the garage.
Well, surprise, surprise, this attic is essentially full of cardboard boxes
nested inside of cardboard boxes, inside of ...
Some of the computer boxes go back to 1997

Our illustrious trash/recycling company wants all cardboard
neatly flattened and tied in bundles at the curb.
Our illustrious trash/recycling company will not recycle styrofoam,
but insists it be in our "trash cart".
In small amounts, this may be OK, but emptying out this attic just won't happen that way.

Here is about a third of the styrofoam from today's boxes:

Gasoline, mineral spirits, and many other liquids will make that pile virtually disappear. What remains will fit easily in your trash.

I am participating in an auction for some equipment that will ultimately go to my kids' school. I accidentally bid on the wrong thing. It's not the completely wrong thing, but there is a different lot of what appears to be roughly the same item, but which is far superior for our particular needs.

I keep refreshing the page, hoping to be outbid...

Kaaabooom? If you want, but you can let it sit until the volatiles evaporate off. Oh wait, you're moving. OK, Kaaabooom it is then.
