Lawyers for megachurch pastor blame 12-year-old for ‘initiating’ sexual contact
  • That might be one of the most demented defenses they could have come up with.

  • mods finally doing the holy work ❤️
  • To each their own but it seems silly to remove a post because you don’t find it funny when it’s not something outright offensive.

  • Truth
  • Pokémon TCG drives me crazy with this.

  • What did we all think of the Macy's fireworks last night?
  • You never added your opinion.

  • Pope Excommunicates Trump-Loving Ultra-Conservative
  • Expelling the cardinal is likely to increase tensions between Francis and conservative American Catholics, a group he as described as having “a very, strong, organized, reactionary attitude,” and whom he accused in 2023 of replacing faith with “ideologies.”

    That’s a great summation of the problem with the religious right in this country.

  • Hello I think you'll love this house.
  • It’s like the original blueprints were a word document and the architect tried to paste in an image.

  • Adult film star Austin Wolf arrested on child pornography charges
  • Horrible stuff that makes my stomach turn but the article doesn’t indicate that he was actually in the videos, simply distributing.

    The adults in the videos are animals that don’t even deserve a grave.

  • California to make financial literacy classes a requirement to graduate high school
  • For individual investors, individual stocks are not a worthwhile risk. Buy a broad scale index fund, realize you won’t get rich but you also won’t lose it all, and build for your retirement.

  • what's your experience washing sneakers in the washing machine?
  • I bought a mesh sneaker bag from Amazon that is designed to keep them safe in the wash and it seems to do the trick each time. Just be sure to take out in the insole before washing.

  • Ironing
  • Steamer game, represent.

  • Good AdBlock for Safari?
  • AdGuard as others have said.

  • Woman 'tried to drown three-year-old girl' in alleged racist attack in Texas
  • Man, those poor kids. I can’t imagine the trauma both of them are feeling after something like that.

  • Woman 'tried to drown three-year-old girl' in alleged racist attack in Texas
  • Sure, but they shouldn’t have to bear the burden of uprooting their lives yet again just because of intolerance.

  • Spectrum Call Center in Charlotte, NC Reportedly Provided Fried Chicken and Watermelon to Employees for Juneteenth
  • Reading the article, it seems like it may have been more of a case of poor judgement from management instead of intentional racism (maybe subconscious stereotyping, though). It's a really stupid mistake. For any holiday, all you have to do is ask the team for input BEFORE making decisions and you can avoid most of this nonsense.

  • Spectrum Call Center in Charlotte, NC Reportedly Provided Fried Chicken and Watermelon to Employees for Juneteenth
  • I've seen a number of companies where I live give holiday pay for employees working on Juneteenth

  • Lauren Boebert closed her gun themed restaurant but the new district has a ‘Shooters’
  • It's wild how one single guy pretty much opened the flood gates for brazen stupidity to be a brand instead of an embarrassment.

  • Request: Mini truck or van racing toward a concrete pole, but never arrives.
  • Have to be honest…

    I thought you were going to fool us with the “with ending” link.

  • Elon Musk Begs Advertisers to Return as Twitter's Revenue Plunges
  • I'm surprised more brands aren't simply defaulting to Threads. You still see links to their Xitter profile instead of Threads.

    I prefer Mastodon, myself, but I get why major brands would prefer a centralized network.

  • For Republicans, raw milk is the new masking
  • While that sounds straight forward in theory, these same idiots will give their children this same milk and wind up killing them.

    Where to find Marketplace support?

    Long story short, my son plays Minecraft on the iPad and used some gold coins to purchase an add-on (“TNT!”) from the marketplace. Unlike other addons that work fine, this one gives a “Download Failed” error message every time he tries to install it. I can not, for the life of me, figure out where a support option is for Mojang to help resolve the issue or refund the coins. Does anyone here have any suggestions?

    Door hinge pin keeps coming up. How to solve?

    Looking for help in solving a problem where the lower door hinge pin on my entry door keeps creeping up and causing the deadbolt to become slightly misaligned making it more difficult to lock. Reading online, I keep coming across suggestions of tightening a screw that’s supposed to lock the pin in place but my hinges don’t seem to have that screw.

    Anyone have any other ideas on how to fix this problem?

    Sonos Voice Control works with Spotify (finally)

    One of the multiple reasons I switched away from Spotify originally. Don’t think I’ll be switching back, but it’s definitely a welcome addition.

    Halo S02E08 Thoughts?

    I don’t want to post too much and spoil for people who haven’t watched it yet, but I can’t believe the season is already over. The table settling in the final episode is great, but the almost spiteful desire to show this is its own timeline by making some very permanent decisions seems to remove some of the layers of complexity that made the original story line so good.

    Aaron Judge has MRI on abdomen

    So, the team and Judge lied about it being about getting someone else at bats and this being general pre-season wear and tear?

    I don’t think it’s hyperbolic to say that if he goes down, the season is already over.
