    My cat licked my hand. Once.

And it's not like my cat scratched her, Micheloa was just popping out of hiding to see what was going on, hanging out and then popping back in to hiding.
    Oh, there's nothing against cats at all, I'm just that much more in love with dogs.

    I'm an introvert, but more of a dog person. Not until I got my own dog though. I think for me it has more to do with size.

    And dog eyes just seem kinder, while cat eyes look like there's some sort of middle-of-the-night-gonna-murder-you plan going on behind them lol

    All jokes aside I've met both cuddly cats and cuddly dogs

    My cat is trained to lick instead of bite if she isn't too keen on being touched.

    My other cat is gentle enough and only tries to bite my feel if I have thick socks on. Which is nice.

    I find cats easier to deal with. Although both of mine are needy for attention. Following me from room to room and needing to sleep with me most of the night.

    I think Dogs just seem easier to train because they seem to care about praise. Cats don't seem to give a shit lol. If I had a yard I would have considered a dog. I found for the size of dog I like an apartment won't do.

    Literal Textbook definition of a rapist Brock Turner wants to have his court case appealed.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/12/02/u...smtyp=cur&_r=0

    Nevermind he already got a slap on the wrist 6 month sentence that got cut down to 3, apparently being a convicted rapist who took advantage of a drunk girl behind a dumpster has been bad for him.


    Literal textbook definition here https://www.salon.com/2017/09/13/bro...rape-textbook/

    I adore both dogs and cats, but since I live in a small appartement, I currently have a cat. I sweet little troublemaker that loves to cuddle and would eat herself to death I let her. She's fairly well around visitors, just needs some time to adjust to "more than one person in the room" thing. You just have to pay attention to some telltale signs (tail, posture) and she won't harm anything you hold dear.

    Oh god why? What exactly would he gain by having this conviction overturned? The world already knows he's a rapist who got off way too easy.

    I also love their arguments for why his trial was bad.

    Character witnesses?!?!

    So, he's making the argument that if only a few more of his friends and family had gone up there and said "He's a good guy, he would never do bad things. He gets good grades and is nice. He also swims good." it would have made a difference?!?! It would have magically made the jury go: "Oh, well, I guess that makes it ok that he took a black out drunk girl out to a dumpster to Rape her. I mean, SO MANY people like him and think he's a nice guy with good grades... that totally makes up for rape. Yup."

    The entitlement here sickens me.

    The appeal said the use of the phrase “implied an intent on the appellant’s part to shield” his activities from others and “implied moral depravity, callousness, and culpability on the appellant’s part because of the inherent connotations of filth, garbage, detritus and criminal activity frequently generally associated with Dumpsters.”
    Hahahahahahahahaha

    So, because the prosecutor cited one of the basic facts of the case, that he tried to rape someone behind a dumpster, it suddenly means mistrial?!?!

    He's only half a step away from claiming the term "Dumpster" Triggered him and he'd prefer she had used the phrase "Trash Recepticle"

    Prison life must not have been hard enough for him...
    I actually forgotten about him...So thanks for reminding people you are a terrible piece of shit rapist.
    Really, most people coming out of prison will stay low and hopefully people will forget about their crime...
    But he literally shot himself in the foot by reminding people about what he did. LOL

    Considering how his father & friend doesn't think what he did was wrong, it's no wonder he believe he's facing a terrible injustice.

    I'm also guessing that nobody want him on their swimming team because of his convicted crime. So, he thinks by overturning the decision, it will help him.

    Much more lighthearted that all of the above, I watched this video earlier today and it struck a chord, because I couldn't really figure out a solution for the dude either way. Wanted to hear you guys' thoughts, since you're mostly american. Oh and despite the title, it's not really a controversial vid, the guy's slovakian and has been to africa on multiple trips, clearly being very enamoured with the continent and has extreme respect for it. Watch for further context.

    This is perfect one at least a few levels. Good on Time for bringing more attention to this movement and the people involved. Hopefully it continues for as long as it needs to.

    I agree, I think this is the most important phenomenon of the year and I'm glad it's been recognised as such after all those sexual molestations were kept in the shadows for so long.

    Last time it happened was 1958! That's 60 years of historic world cup appearances we've just thrown out the window *cries inconsolably*

    There is a general football/soccer thread that works just fine. Just hasn't been posted in frequently for a while.
