The first comment on this post was, "Oh so we're supposed to hate all white people now?" No asshat, we're supposed to hate racist, shitty people. This is before he found out that the person who committed the crime was black.

Few days in the sun and the pallets of sod would have been trash so they saved his life and a good bit of money

That's exactly why they came back. Sod is expensive and the emergency responders wanted to get it down as quickly as possible. When the guy was having the heart attack, he was more worried about the sod than his own health. He pawned his favorite gun to purchase the sod so he couldn't let that money go to waste. The main reason he bought it was to resod his yard before their homeowner's association issued a large fine.

YSK the $35 that scientific journals charge you to read a paper goes 100% to the publisher and 0% to the authors. If you email a researcher and ask for their paper, they are allowed to send them to you for free and will be genuinely delighted to do so.

If you're doing your own research and need credible sources for a paper or project, you should not have to pay journal publishers money for access to academic papers, especially those that are funded with government money. I'm not a scientist or researcher, but the info in the title came directly from a Ph.D. at Laval University in Canada. She went on to say that a lot of academic science is publicly funded through governmental funding agencies. It's work done for the public good, funded by the public, so members of the public should have access to research papers. She also provided a helpful link with more information on how to access paywalled papers.

Film adapted book covers should not be a thing.

I recently saw a film adapted cover of Fahrenheit 451, and it really hurts to see a classic novel ruined by a terrible cover with actor's faces plastered all over it. Is this trend just a marketing ploy to get people to watch the film, or do you think these flashy covers encourage people to read more books? I'd like to get your opinions and discuss the pros and cons of film adapted book covers. I don't really agree with them, but I'm likely also overlooking some potential benefits.

The fact that people don’t know how to talk to each other anymore is sad and pathetic... and the reason for stuff like this.

This comes amid a series of recent racial-profiling cases that have caused public outrage, including someone in Ohio calling the police on a 12-year-old boy mowing a lawn, a California woman calling police to report black people barbecuing, and a San Francisco woman threatening to call police on a black girl selling water.

I mean, I'm not a fan of barbecue or mowing my lawn but this shit has gotten out of control.

But you like water, right?
