    What an idiot.
    The employee or the customer?

    I mean, who walks around with five hundred dollars in cash on them? It seems to me like they were asking to get rolled.
    Just because...
    Phoenix (Christian Petzold, 2014) mild
    Camp de Thiaroye (Sembčne Ousmane/Thierno Faty Sow, 1988) warm
    3 Faces (Jafar Panahi, 2018) warm

    The last book I read was...

    I'd say the thief is dumber.

    I was out of town at a multi day music festival last week where a lot of the vendors were cash only, and I didn't wanna pay the exorbitant ATM machine fees, so I carried with me a few hundred bills.

    In short, people have their reasons. The only one who deserves any blame here is the thief.

    When I travelled in Australia, I worked mostly in cash too because of the credit card fees with each purchase.

    I enjoy seeing matchcutters become older and curmudgeonly like me. Finally. No context. Random thought.

    I am shocked at the large number of high school people on Facebook who 1) still live in the same city; and 2) are Facebook friends with like everyone who we went to high school with. I mean I'm Facebook friends with actual friends I had in high school, but I'm always surprised to see such a large number who seem to have friended like everyone. Am I weird for thinking that? Is that normal and I just don't realize it? There weren't many people in HS that I hated or anything like that, but I wouldn't say I needed to be Facebook friends with my entire class. For many, I don't really need to know what's going on in their lives. They're living theirs, I'm living mine. Shrug. I dunno.

    How many people were you in your high school class? (or school for that matter?)

    You're not weird for thinking so. It's an odd thing to me when people's lives tend to settle into place at such a young age. I had a graduating class of 400 in a high school of 1600. I'm friends with maybe 20 of them on Facebook. Wish the rest of them the best, sincerely, but don't really have an active interest in what they're doing. Paths diverge.

    My class had maybe 150-200 people in it. It was a private Catholic school. Wasn't gigantic, but I damn sure know everyone didn't get along with everyone.

    I'm small town Ohio, so my class was tiny and we all practically were together since first grade. I still agree with you Wyran.

    Doing a gifting thing for the holidays this year cause my boss is turning 40 and asked if everyone could help get some gifts for 40 kids in need, etc. I selected a nine-year-old boy who simply asked for "anything Superman!" Any good ideas for a nine-year-old boy who wants Superman toys/miscellaneous paraphernalia? I'm gonna start researching.

    Can't find any other video with the whole thing. It's Ellen Page interviewing Brazil's candidate Bolsonaro who has a strong anti-LGTB agenda. I still can't believe this fascist is going to be the next president of Brazil.

    Seems like more right wing governments are happening these days.
