    [–] Grappler device to stop high speed pursuits itwasonlythewind 16 points ago in interestingasfuck

    Today’s cops follow at a safe distance as to not antagonize the driver into driving faster. So the opposite direction as this.

    [–] What is the worst thing you've ever seen? itwasonlythewind 100 points ago in AskReddit

    That’s liveleak and it’s one of the most gruesome videos on there. Just don’t. Go outside or anything else.

    [–] Found cat trap in neighbors yard after my cat went missing... itwasonlythewind 5 points ago in legaladvice

    If it isn’t chipped it’s on the pet owners to alert shelters of the lost animal, there’s not a national database. Leave a 20$ in my yard and whether I keep it or try to find the owner is irrelevant legally. That would be a morals argument.

    [–] Found cat trap in neighbors yard after my cat went missing... itwasonlythewind 33 points ago in legaladvice

    You’re correct. I recently looked at trapping laws as my cat went missing. Apparently many people think their outdoor cats have free reign wherever because it’s just so darn cute. If the cat leaves the property it’s the owner that’s fucked up, their cat is now a wild animal as far as the law is concerned. Pounds and SPCA have increasing fees for each retrieval of a lost pet to force pet owners to follow the law. Pet thieves are horrible but so are many pet owners. Outdoor cats get a myriad of diseases. AIDS is bad where I live. Getting them chipped helps in ownership disputes and the pound checks for chips.

    Legally can? Yes. Can I legally take your outdoor cat to the pound or relocate it if it comes on my property? Yes to that as well. Nuisance outdoor cat? Keep taking it to the pound. That’s why they have increasing costs for each retrieval, so owners can’t force their pets on other people and their property.

    [–] Blue Ridge Parkway Experiences itwasonlythewind 15 points ago in Paranormal

    Spirits will stick around if they’ve been killed and their bodies haven’t been found. They want closure for their families who may spend decades wondering. Most of your events seem to occur where the man with the shovel was and you may be the only one who knows of the possible crime. There’s plenty of stories of ppl being led to a body because of a dream or images in their head. That would be my guess, anything to remind you of the man with the truck and dome light. There’s also plenty of reported killers/serial killers that use the BRP as their killing field. And few reasons to walk out of the woods empty-handed with a shovel.

    [–] Chefs, what red flags do you look for when you go out to eat? itwasonlythewind 7 points ago in AskReddit

    With the amount of food we throw away at our restaurant every day, the servers could try everything easily and we do!

    [–] Chefs, what red flags do you look for when you go out to eat? itwasonlythewind 6 points ago in AskReddit

    Minimum wage employees use the mop not the manager. Many employees don’t have a clue how to mop properly and mopping is the very last order of business before they clock out. So they get the mop wet, wipe the floor in one go, clock out, and leave. Spreading out a layer of floor cleaner to soak, scrubbing the floor with the mop, then squeegeeing it up correctly takes a lot more time. Not that it’s right but it’s been my experience. I’ve never seen someone mop correctly but I’ve also never seen management know the difference to teach employees the correct way.

    [–] What is the most illegal thing you've done and gotten away with? itwasonlythewind 1 points ago in AskReddit

    A kid on my freshman hall came in with signs on move-in day like Shroom Alley and High St that he had collected in hs. Campus security called his hometown police dept and they said it’s either felony theft (4 signs > 1k apparently) and campus security suspends him or he return the signs. Come to find out: HIS own parents were the ones to call it in?!? They had fought about it after the parents caught him unloading the signs he had snuck into their car the previous night. The kid refused as he was 18 and the signs were in his dorm now, but the parents weren’t having it. They even returned the signs for him. He avoided trouble and has a great career now so lesson learned I reckon.

    [–] Colbert Links Big Pharma's Sackler Family To America's Opioid Crisis itwasonlythewind 12 points ago in television

    From a neuroscience POV, taking them when you have little or no pain activates your brain’s reward and addiction centers significantly more. The reasoning there is very simple to understand. If you’re in tons of pain, meds will take you back to base level. If you’re not in tons of pain, the same meds will take you to being very high and activate your addiction centers. For some people with unlucky genetics, waking up their addiction centers is like setting off a bomb. But everyone has these centers so you’re not a special case. If you take meds on a regime instead of as needed.. well you’ve officially fucked your brain’s baseline levels for too long and it will rewire itself to need those meds/that high to stay at baseline.

    If that’s his “apology”, more action needs to be taken against him, a lot more.

    [–] [Serious] Redditors who have seen an employee fired on the spot, what did they do that caused them to deserve it? itwasonlythewind 20 points ago in AskReddit

    Doesn’t matter, it’s the auditor, IRS and labor board the employer needs to be straight with to stay legal, has nothing to do with the employee’s apathy.

    [–] [Virginia] Cops keep getting sent to my address via 911 calls from an unknown caller. itwasonlythewind 15 points ago in legaladvice

    [–] Driver caught purposely splashing pedestrians itwasonlythewind 92 points ago * (lasted edited 5 months ago) in videos

    Considering they have gotten zero upvotes vs downvotes probably themselves from another account, aka troll. The discord on Reddit lately is unbelievable, and like you said this comment is just plain shit, not worthy of gold, so it’s someone trying to sow discord by making this shit seem like something someone cares about.

    Edit: fucking troll also edited their comment* like a coward once it went negative.
