What is your strongest irrational fear? by alexfuhrman0 in AskReddit

Spiders. I just don't understand my fear of them. I can handle scorpions, lobsters, even the face-huggers from the Alien movies. I'm all big and tough like Ripley and Hicks but the minute you put a larger than average little spider in front of me and I turn into this

Sorry, bit out of the loop on this one. What has he said about Kushner that was so disparaging?

Thank you very much! Next time, I’ll get some corn tortillas, lots more cilantro and some salsa verde I think :)

You know, you’re right! This was my first shot at this and we only had flour tortillas. I’d love some fresh queso as well but alas, my Canadian arctic tundra grocery store has none :(

Trump breaks with American tradition, refuses to visit US troops in combat zones. by pheonix200 in politics

In February 1944, General Theodore Roosevelt JR was assigned to England to help lead the Normandy invasion and appointed ADC of the 4th Infantry Division. After several verbal requests to the division's Commanding General (CG), Major General Raymond "Tubby" Barton, were denied, Roosevelt sent a written petition:

"The force and skill with which the first elements hit the beach and proceed may determine the ultimate success of the operation.... With troops engaged for the first time, the behavior pattern of all is apt to be set by those first engagements. [It is] considered that accurate information of the existing situation should be available for each succeeding element as it lands. You should have when you get to shore an overall picture in which you can place confidence. I believe I can contribute materially on all of the above by going in with the assault companies. Furthermore I personally know both officers and men of these advance units and believe that it will steady them to know that I am with them."

Barton approved this letter with much misgiving, stating that he did not expect Roosevelt to return alive.

Roosevelt was the only general on D-Day to land by sea with the first wave of troops. At 56, he was the oldest man in the invasion, and the only one whose son also landed that day; Captain Quentin Roosevelt II was among the first wave of soldiers at Omaha Beach.

Dude was fucking legit.
