Nah, O.J. Simpson joined Twitter today and his only tweet so far is a video that ends with him saying he's got some "getting even" to do.

Ah, classic. Just about when people were forgetting the murder OJ turns around and publicly says things that could be interpreted as a threat.
Conserative Morality wrote:"It's not time yet" is a tactic used by reactionaries in every era. "It's not time for democracy, it's not time for capitalism, it's not time for emancipation." Of course it's not time. It's never time, not on its own. You make it time. If you're under fire in the no-man's land of WW1, you start digging a foxhole even if the ideal time would be when you *aren't* being bombarded, because once you wait for it to be 'time', other situations will need your attention, assuming you survive that long. If the fields aren't furrowed, plow them. If the iron is not hot, make it so. If society is not ready, change it.

Don't listen! DI's tempting us to ruin!

We need to dig a deeper TET bunker and hope the summer storms pass by overhead.

Tsk, is Dum-Dum trying to corrupt us beyond repair again? It's getting a bit old, if you ask me. And also if you don't ask me, by the way.

Arrest me, for I am a madman—placing semicolons instead of a fullstop; but it’s really satisfying to use punctuations that no one, well, the younger generation uses... like semicolons and interrobangs.

It’s for fumigating. Comes in a can, it has a timer and it then kinda poofs, sending a cloud of bug killer throughout your entire house. Takes 24 hours to dissipate.

Apparently, during the Second Sino-Japanese War, the Japanese military used just that. Bombs filled with flies and cholera.
