We had this rear supply type guy who was at a nice big 600 man FOB, you know the kind with showers, running water, cooks and a DFAC, etc. Anyways they rarely got attacked and indirect fire maybe once a week – this guy claimed he was having panic attacks and he couldn’t take it, yadda yadda. They treated him with I guess you could say less than urgency, I’m guessing thinking that it was BS. Dude went back to his room, put his M16 on burst, put it to his face and squoze the trigger. That was when I realized I need to stop judging people because that guy was either legitimately affected by some sort of stress disorder or he really got one over on us.
I’m not sure why people didn’t stop.
The woman, officers said Wednesday, is extremely angry because she pleaded with other passersby to stop and help her render aid to the deputies but no one would stop for some time.
It might have something to do with the civilian-LE divide, or the us-v-them attitude, or perhaps the people that didn’t stop knew someone that got no-knocked. Not sure. I’m pretty sure I’d fucking stop, as I have some deformed paladin gene, but I understand the antipathy.
Tacoma Public Schools policy prohibits teachers from putting sunscreen on students. Students can apply their own, but are required to have a doctor’s note authorizing them to use it.
One of the first glimmers of their illness is this insatiable need to create
Unraveling Bolero (it isn’t clear which person says this, so I can’t attribute the quote correctly)
Not only did the artist they discuss (Anne) have the same disease as the Ravel, but she became obsessed with the music and turning into visual arts. In a way, it seems, Ravel was sending a homing beacon over the ages to people with the same disease. I’ll avoid snark here, but there’s plenty of obvious snark for everyone to play.
