Re: Why the lack of a desire for answers surrounding covid?

When a person fucks up at work they often deny involvement to escape blame.

Re: Walking Dogs along Train Tracks in Cambodia

Not likely she’d get hit per se, but the stopping distance on a freight train is pretty long and it takes a lot to get back up to speed. So the moment they spot her they have to start braking hard way ahead of time even if they think she will move. Heck, she might be cheerily waving them past with ...

Re: Walking Dogs along Train Tracks in Cambodia
