Though more common among women then men, it is still not unheard of. A friend tells a joke, at first you don’t get it, and then, as if a dam of humor has just broken, you collapse to the floor in a flood of laughter. Sadly, simultaneously, another dam breaks, and you also end up in a flood of, well, unpleasantries (I just made that word up)..
Let me preface this by saying that I been a giffing since they first appeared on aol boards in 1996 (centuries ago in internet time). I remember refreshing all afternoon with the hope that someone would make a gif with some humor. I was a giffing back when 500kb was a large file size and I still upvote every 90s gif I see becasue of the fond rush of nostalgia it brings me.
Menendez and other lawmakers say they are considering ending the National Flood Insurance Program. The program is an unusual hybrid model: private companies are paid a fee to process policies and claims, but taxpayers bear the risk and largely pay the claims. Records show that nearly 80 firms participate in the government’s flood program, including some of the nation’s largest insurance companies..

The cult members are unsure what they need to do to progress further or what the actual levels are, having been unable to actually contact K’Thriss. The leader, who is writing the letter, has procured a red shard of glass and after completing the letter, is planning to gauge out his eyes so that he can look upon the world in the way that K’Thriss does. (He has real reason to think that this will actually work but isn’t that what blind faith’s all about?).
There were literally seconds left in the game and DePaul had a chance to take the lead. In that moment as I saw my bankroll rest on the shoulders of an open three that DePaul hoisted up, I made a vow to myself. I never doing this shit again. “Let’s face it. We’re the greatest nation on earth. We have more involvements around the world than any country,” said Corker.
I would liked a bit more of a thorough explanation of their background/what makes them so special before they got axed. Maybe we find out after the fact, but I feel like they were kinda building them up to be something more than human (especially those creepy triplets with the masks?) especially as they seemed to have particular and important knowledge of things that most Parasites don I felt that that thread was being spun into something cool, but now it just got snipped without the chance for us to find out anything of importance to the DarliFra worldbuilding. Pretty disappointed..
