Questionable choice of advertisement...

If only these scumbags had used a jeep, it would have broken down before getting anywhere near people.

That’s fucking hilarious in an extremely dark way lol

Couldn't you photoshop it, then take a photo of the shop? Is this really any added security?

When needing to show us your monitor please don't take a photo of the screen, use the snip tool!

Bitcoin is a sh*tcoin.

Bitcoin is a sh*tcoin.

Bitcoin is only so popular because it was the first cryptocoin, and the average normie have only heard about Bitcoin. But people will surely realize that there are way better alternatives. It's like when the Internet was introduced everyone have been using Internet Explorer but now everyone uses Chrome and Firefox. I think in this context Bitcoin is IE, Ethereum is Firefox, and Bitcoin Cash is Chrome.

CASH IS KING!

Bitcoin in 2017 lul

But Bitcoin Cash is Bitcoin!

can other people chime in on whether they agree with this sentiment?

This may not be taken the way you want. With a career as a teacher some parents may think this crosses a line, even if you meant in another way. Be careful.

It’s edited. You can tell that the last part is bolder than the other text. (I can’t say what the text is because my comment would be removed.)

The focus of the criminal justice system should be protecting the innocent. That means both those who are victims of crime and those wrongly accused.

Of recent years there have been well meaning but legally illiterate campaigns about how the police handle rape complaints, and poor suggestions like automatically believing the victim (assumption of guilt), trying to boost conviction rates and creating a taboo around the possibility of false allegations being filed need to be resisted.

None of those things are the same as being comforting "safe" and reassuring to rape victims.

This idea is a good one.

Your overarching point seems like it's a "trust, but confirm" type argument, which I think is fair. Trust the accuser, but if after investigation you can't confirm, then unfortunately the problem is out of the scope of the legal system.

Oh hey this is good. I have a better idea though. How about we just STOP FUCKING PUBLISHING EVERYONE's NAMES IN THE MEDIA.

poor suggestions like automatically believing the victim (assumption of guilt)

This inherently isn't bad, it's just being implemented badly. Too many times people have reported sex crimes and police haven't believed it possible, so didn't investigate it (see: Jimmy Saville). The fact he abused 300+ children and it wasn't recorded because police thought a celebrity like Saville wouldn't do that, it prevented evidence being collected or links being made which could have prevented more children being abused. I think the point should be if someone reports it, it should be taken seriously and investigated, but it definitely shouldn't be assumed correct unless the evidence supports that statement.

trying to boost conviction rates

Again, this is well meaning. It's just the problem is with crimes like this there's almost no evidence. Historic crimes won't have DNA etc. and unless it's a violent rape by a stranger (what many think of, but is actually far less common) there's plausible explanations for how they could be having consensual sex. Without being there it's often impossible to prove whether someone said no when it was sex with a friend/partner. Same goes for proving date rape etc. because once the drugs leave your system it becomes he-said she-said again.

creating a taboo around the possibility of false allegations being filed need to be resisted.

Yep, there will obviously be false allegations, like in all things some people lie. This shouldn't get in the way of a proper investigation, though. We also need to be clear that in between the accusation being proved and securing a conviction, and the accuser being proved a liar, there's a massive unprovable grey area where we really don't know. It sucks, but we can't just say "yeah, he looks rapey, lets lock him up". If there's any reasonable doubt the only fair thing to do is to not convict and this unfortunately will also mean there are rapists who cannot be proved guilty. It's just this will naturally make real victims think what's the point, why bother reporting it?

Lucky escape. If they'd been x-rayed transiting Singapore, they'd be off to the gallows.

Bad day to be a drug smuggler

Sorry North Shore, Christmas is cancelled.

What a shame. That could have been a lot of fun for a lot of people.

Have you ever had a dream

Have you ever had a dream

you met someone, kinda fell in love, woke up and were sad because that person doesn't exist and you'll never meet them?

But, anyone you see in a dream is always someone you have seen in real life. If the person exists, find them and go for it!!

not necessarily. it could've been someone on tv that you don't even explicitly remember, or someone you just saw in passing in public.

Even worse is when you have those dreams about people that actually exist, even if you barely know them

Or if you really know them and you feel really strange towards them

Letzte Woche

Durch /u/Jan_Hus vor einiger Zeit gestartet und für gut befunden, führe ich das hier wieder mal fort. Ich habe auch vor da eine Tradition draus zu machen, wenn es weiterhin Anklang findet.

Also was läuft bei euch im Haus / Block / Dorf / Stadt / Kreis / Landstrich grad grade /schief?
