Doesn't NJ have bigger things to worry about?

NJ Lawmaker Proposed ?Rape By Fraud? Legislation CBS New York

Quote:
A New Jersey lawmaker has a plan that would make it a crime to lie in order to sleep with someone.

As CBS2’s Jessica Schneider reported, Assemblyman Troy Singleton (D-Mount Laurel) calls it “rape by fraud.”
Women and even men have been lured into relationships with people who aren’t who they say they are.

“You probably would not consent to someone who purported to be a million different things other than they are,” Singleton said.

The assemblyman has introduced a bill that would make lying to get someone to have sex equal to rape.

20 mile coal train piling off a cliff onto an elementary school for the blind.



The evidence:

http://apps.stlpublicradio.org/fergu.../evidence.html


From the above link (both on October 16):

"So, although you told the investigators this is what you saw even though you only heard it from someone, you don't feel you lied?"
"Nope."


"And what did you actually see."
"I saw Michael Brown on his knees begging for his life as the office stood over him from behind and put a bullet in his head from point blank range."
"And, given that the forensic evidence tells us otherwise, there's nothing about that testimony you would like to change?"
"Nope. Maybe the forensic evidence just saw it from a different perspective than I did."

Anybody know who this is?



He's the store owner that was beaten (on camera) by Michael Brown and robbed.

His store has now been looted and vandalized in the name of... justice for the... innocent?

Right. Bunch of ********* deserve to be shot in the street.

Not even much stolen, from the looks. Just wanton destruction.

Like animals.

I joined the big riot when the Rodney King video was released. I was beaten and bled in the street along with Reginald Denny.

Interesting idea. Works to create dew and frost all the time.

So we cover the buildings with this material and create "no-fly" zones over the cities?

That is kind of cool.

It would seem to me that the most obvious application for such a technology would be to take the place of (or provide supplemental heat-dissipation capacity for) traditional condensers / chilling towers in commercial HVAC applications. Particularly since large commercial buildings are already receiving federal benefits when they are outfitted with LEED-compliant environmental systems.


Unrelated:

I has assumed that the Orion spacecraft would simply be nixed when project Constellation was cancelled several years ago. Turns out that it wasn't, and they're getting ready to launch one tomorrow: Weather Looks Good for NASA's Orion Spacecraft Test Flight Thursday

For those unfamiliar, Orion is basically the resurrection of a decades-old technology, and can be described in very general terms as Apollo on steroids.



So that's cool.

I guess this is as good a time as any to share the following racist-sounding observation from a city dweller.

As a broad generalization, black people seem to be unusually adept at moving rapidly. We see evidence of this in the disproportionately high success rate of blacks in both individual and team-oriented sports in which speed of movement is a major determining factor. Sprinting, basketball, football, armed robbery, marathon-running... Any event you can name in which swiftness of movement is a key factor tends to be dominated by athletes of African ethnicity.

Why, then, do blacks seem so singularly and uniquely inept at moving rapidly under everyday conditions such as walking on the sidewalk and descending the stairs to the subway platform?

I don't know.

I do know that there exists a slight difference in the distance between the ankle pivot point and the heel between the average person of Anglo and African descent. The heel of the average person of African descent extends rearward slightly further. Since this is the locating point for the Achilles tendon, this allows slightly more leverage for the calf muscle when contracting and extending the toe end of the foot. Obvious advantages would be seen in sprinting and jumping. I'm not even joking.
