Unwittingly, nature actually equipped every parent on the planet with one of these hypothetical devices. We've just gotten kind of soft about using them. I thought we were trying to prevent potential child abuse. Oh, is that what we're trying to do? I pray you'll forgive my confusion, but surely yo...

Yeah, my favorite movie, Jurassic Park, is from 1993 (that counts as old to me, anyway). I'll be watching the LOTR trilogy this weekend (well, the 2nd movie) The 90's aren't that old :p Honestly, there can be a relatively new film (Even from the 2000's) and be dated and a film from the 40's and sti...

Just watched Taken for the first time.
The fact that even *this* sorry excuse for a movie fell victim to 21st century "trilogy syndrome" is nauseating.

Smoking of tobacco is banned in all indoor areas; e-cigarettes are exempt from this policy as they yield harmless water vapor. Recreational use of cannabis has not been legalized, but has been decriminalized. "Dagga nabbing" is a Goeiehooplander slang term referring to the R900 (≈112 USD) ...

Nice evasion. In other words, he doesn't actually get to vote! Except that's not actually an evasion. Sure, he doesn't get to contribute his 0.229% toward floor votes; however, on a half-dozen member subcommittee his proposals, amendments, and votes mean much, much more. Same applies for any other ...

I'm not familiar with him, but anyone whom played a role in abating Punjabi irredentism during the early post-Raj period is owed the world's appreciation. The potential loss of life that region could've suffered were it plagued also by effective Sikh separatism is too staggering to contemplate.

If you identify with the Democratic Party: yes.
If you identify with the Republican Party: no.

Neither extant federal policy nor the major parties are interested in any incarnation of regionalist governance, so party affiliation's really the only practical consideration that'd matter here.

Though Goeiehoopland lacks any legally-binding speed limits, each street has a posted "safety speed;" if it can be proven that the motorist responsible for an accident exceeded this limit, his insurance company is not liable to cover auto repairs.
