  3. Simple not complicated its because i can.
  4. prickled and pickled knowing the grass is greener on the watered side
  5. It’s funny how time works. I think I saw Hatman 20 years ago but didn’t know it might have been him until a few days ago. It was listening to a podcast which rekindled a long-forgotten memory. The particular episode was about shadow people which, in general, didn’t spark any memories for me. However, it was one type of shadow person they began talking about in particular, Hatman, which caused me to do a double take while listening. Rewinding to the spring of 1997, I was a freshman at Rutgers University in New Brunswick. My dorm room was located on the third floor of the rather drab-looking Clothier Hall. It was early, with the faint blue light of morning just beginning to seep through the crack between the window and the curtain. It might have been the weekend because I recall my roommate had gone home and was not there that morning. I opened my eyes, and the first thing I noticed was a figure sitting next to my bed no more than three or four feet away. The beds in the dorms were set lower to the ground than a typical bed would have been, so I had a clear line of sight - and it’s a sight I’ll now never forget. The figure was sitting on the floor with his back up against the bed. His feet were flat on the floor with his knees pointing straight up. His arms were resting on his knees casually and he appeared to be looking slightly down. I couldn’t make out the details of any clothing, all I saw was a deep black body. But the feature that was most dominant, and why I’m referring to the figure as a “he”, was the wide-brimmed hat he was wearing. I could not make out a face, mostly because the brim of the hat was obscuring it from the side. I blinked hard a couple of times to ensure my eyes were clear, but he was still there after I did. “Hello?!” I said in an aggressive tone, trying to convey that I was clearly unhappy with a stranger intruding in my room. After a second or two, but what felt like a minute or two, the figure slowly faded away, the spot where he was sitting visibly lightening as he did. At the time, it was weird because before that I had never had a groggy dream-like vision which I knew some people had when they woke up in the morning or in the middle of the night. Twenty years later, and I still have not had any drowsy visions. That morning was the only time I have ever experienced anything like that. Even though it was a one-time occurrence, it was obvious to me that, for whatever reason, my brain had indeed conjured up an early-morning foggy illusion, and I didn’t think about it nearly at all for the next two decades. But a couple of days ago, more or less exactly 20 years after that morning, I learned about the ghostly entity known as Hatman. Upon hearing the first description while listening to that podcast, I immediately thought of the shadowlike figure I had seen that morning in my dorm room at Rutgers. The parallels with dozens of accounts were there. The figure I had seen had that large-brimmed hat, was darker than the darkest black, and was spotted near my bed. What’s the probability that my subconscious decided to create such an image twenty years before I even knew an almost identical being existed in the paranormal world? That memory, which has basically lain dormant for the past 20 years, has now taken on a whole new level of eeriness for me.
  6. Turkey is sinking into the Abyss.
  7. I agree, i bet she's a lovely. I think i started off on the wrong foot with her many moons ago and now were in this merry dance where i like to wind her up and she gives as good as she gets. - but on a more serious note, She also brings a different perspective to many a topic on the forum which i admire. but don't tell her that or she might go soft on us.
  8. Funny while you're not wrong , their concerns about cost and coverage arent really about the citizenry, just the profit margins.
  9. We all do so well, most do. Can`t really say that about antifa though
  10. Not really, but without a warning? What if there was serious damage, like the wall cracking or collapsing?
  11. I like her to, she`s got spunk.
  12. I notice they don't give a set date as to when they will stop doing this....hmmm. Maybe they will wait until people complain that it's still happening until they give a definite date! Google already have a dubious privacy reputation....just saying! I am not on fb or have an email account with them. Let's see if THIS happens.... http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-40325233
  13. As of the moment, that type of madness is actually being suggested in Germany. So much for sovereign. Martin wants to give refugees the right to vote in German election.
  14. That's the crux of the issue. What Republicans views as the problems with healthcare is completely different that what Democrats view as the problems. Basically Republicans care about the cost, whereas the Democrats care about the coverage. Pre-Obamacare saw both the cost increasing the coverage decreasing. Obamacare increased coverage but increased cost in the form of taxes to many and forced people to buy. From what I am seeing with the Republican plan, it cuts costs but leaves more hurting. It is the more social darwinistic of the two.
  15. I like you. To keep the thread on track, Don't be so paranoid about Russia Helen, your own corrupt government will effect your day to day life more than the bogeyman over the horizon. plus we have them (Russia) where we want them.
  16. Nothing worse than trying to hustle across the airport when your bag gets the speed wobbles !
  17. Bans, sanctions and embargos work for the short term, but we have already been doing this for almost half a century. There is a reason why it is called the hermit kingdom after all. Merc is right as well, China, Russia, and other countries who could care less will still give them stuff. Heck they even found US parts on the last North Korean missile. Presumably sold to China by a US firm and then resold to the North Koreans. Heck, look at that poor dumb Otto kid. The US doesn't do travel to North Korea. But the dumb kid decides he wants to go around that ban and give his tourism money to North Korea anyways. So he went through China. I feel bad about his fate and what happened, but I do tend to agree with those that criticized him when he was arrested. He had to have thought that he was some kind of special to even go there, let alone trying to steal a poster from a tyrannical dictatorship.
  18. Why suitcases rock and fall over - puzzle solved - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-40346519
  19. Please try to keep your topic together in paragraphs, you are all over the place and it is hard to understand what you are trying to say.
  20. Sooo... they want a state ? A state with Iraq on one side, Syria on another, Iran on the other, and Turkey on the other ? I can't see them having a HUGE tourism industry !
  21. 5.7 million illegals may have voted? Are we so backwards that we can't even verify our own elections? How is our system even legitimate if we can't tell if a large percentage of our votes are true or not? After all 2008 only had 122 million who voted in it period.
  22. I personally like the idea of getting rid of prosecutions/investigations/governmental threats to people who make an offhanded statement like Depp did, as tacky as those jokes may be, the POTUS is a freaking citizen just like the rest of us.
  23. I have shown you the truth about "spiritual" orbs. I refuse to argue, debate, or discuss this topic any further. Peace.
  24. After reading this thread and the thread, I can't help but laugh. We really do need to get our ducks in a row for standards. Do we want free speech or not?
  25. Well, as long as they keep calm about it, and don't lose their heads !
  26. Wait you're using an administration official's word as evidence? Comeon
