    [–] Who is that!? somethinglikesalsa 6 points ago in funny

    I'm not sure. Next time I'm near one I'll ask!

    [–] The descent and landing of the falcon 9 booster after yesterday's launch somethinglikesalsa 1 points ago in space

    What do they need to do to accomplish that? Do we know what the most worn parts are? Is it a total overhaul of the rocket engines or more like a top up?

    [–] The descent and landing of the falcon 9 booster after yesterday's launch somethinglikesalsa 1 points ago in space

    So how hard would it be to fuel it up and go again? You need the top part, and it looks pretty dirty, but what's the shortest you could launch the same rocket?

    [–] Navajo Nation sues Wells Fargo in fake-account scandal somethinglikesalsa 1 points ago in news

    the terms of the contract, and the subsequent implications of those terms, have to be understood by the customer, in order for them to 'consent.'

    Wait, so all I have to do is not read or fully understand a contract for it to be invalidated years later even? That sounds like you are creating framework for every contrat to be invalidated!

    Well that's on my amazon history now. I expect to be pestered to order houses for the next 3 months.

    I love these threads. I bet a comcast and verizon team are in every single one taking notes for 5 years down the line haha. We are crowd sourcing the worst possible paths for "big net".

    [–] Judge orders Alabama not to destroy voting records in Tuesday's Senate election somethinglikesalsa 0 points ago in politics

    They said nobody else was in the room

    I really, really hope you aren't this stupid. So you expect the cops to just take the drunk madman who can't follow basic instructions at his word, when the officer's life is on the line? What a fucking joke!

    Shut, locked

    Factually incorrect

    2-3 minutes

    more then enough time for real damage

    In fact, there was no one else there and nothing gunlike visible on the suspect.

    1) Unknown 2) Not a reasonable assumption from the kid's body language 3) because it's impossible to hide weapons.

    I feel like i'm talking to a child. Am I talking to a child?

    [–] Judge orders Alabama not to destroy voting records in Tuesday's Senate election somethinglikesalsa 0 points ago in politics

    But that's what he did. He crawled 2 or 3 body lengths.

    While the other officer sweeps the room

    Did you just honestly suggest that one officer sweep out an unknown set of rooms with reports of reckless activity with a rifle ALONE? Jesus fucking christ dude! Do all of your suggestions end with a cop in extreme danger of getting shot! Haha.

    I think I know a wheat field full of locusts that we can draw inspiration from to continue the fight until we are forced to activate our doomsday weapon because of our own complacency.

    three body problem!!!!

    [–] Judge orders Alabama not to destroy voting records in Tuesday's Senate election somethinglikesalsa 1 points ago in politics

    No he couldn't have. The police didn't know the room was clear and the cop would have been vulnerable if he applied the cuffs in the doorway. He needed the suspect to leave the doorway in a safe manner. Which is the picture perfect opposite of what the guy actually did.

    [–] Judge orders Alabama not to destroy voting records in Tuesday's Senate election somethinglikesalsa -2 points ago in politics

    Wrong!

    He was being detained for the suspicion of brandishing a firearm in public. Or is that not a reasonable use of the cops? For all anyone knew the cops could have been preventing the next Las Vegas shooting! That information wasn't known at the time the police arrived at the location. Both options were equally likely, but because that is literally the cops job, they have to act in the method that best protects the public. That means taking control of the situation.

    Now anyone who has ever dealt with, or will deal with, the police need to know one thing. You do not, under any circumstances reach for items outside of the cop's view, especially suddenly. The cop's is working and to ask him to risk his life based on what he think another person might do is unreasonable. From the cop's point of view he was called to a location with in individual with a weapon. That individual did not listen to the cop' instructions and reached MULTIPLE TIMES for an item in his waistband. He did this twice after being warned not to. Those motions are the LITERAL EXACT motions of someone with a gun in their pants. The person did not listen to instructions, acted belligerent, spoke back to the cops and repeatedly did actions he was specifically told not to.

    For everyone commenting from suburbs and gated communities here are the facts: you do not get to decide if a cop is acting morally in the situation at hand. You do not get to not listen to their instructions, and you DO NOT GET TO REACH SUDDENLY INTO YOUR WAISTBAND. Your actions are indistinguishable from pulling a gun and you will get shot. If the cop is acting illegally (which he was not in this situation, as the video clearly shows) you deal with it and have many legal options later in civil and criminal cases.

    Jesus Christ the video couldn't be more black and white, yet there is such a fucking shitstorm about some dipshit doing the one thing you dont do with cops, reach for something in your waistband. I dont give a flying fuck if you are crying. That tactic is as old as time, and animals pretend to be nice to get close to attack. If some tears is all it takes no wonder bad people get away with so much!

    This issue has me so fucking triggered because you CAN CLEARLY SEE THE FUCKING VIDEO!!!
