    not really a surprise, i read Pryor's books years ago, i forget the details but it was an open secret in his group of friends at one point that he was fucking a chick that was actually a chap.

    Never realised Brando was fairly open about his bisexuality for the time, especially as a huge Hollywood star

    Isn't it quite simply that skateboards used to last longer and so they could ask that price in the 80's but couldn't really increase the price when skateboards stopped lasting so long?

    Nice. I guess we all need a gun at home, just in case.

    So depressing that yet again this is going to drive no change whatsoever, America is in too deep. The only real solutions at this point are better mental health care and police picking up on signs/ people reporting anything worrying/ more background checks on new gun buying. What is out there is out there now gun wise and that can't be stopped...

    They said that apart from a very disturbing social media presence showing an obsession with weapons, a poor disciplinary record including setting off the school fire alarm multiple times and fellow students joking that he would be the one to shoot up the school, there was no obvious sign that this was about to happen.

    It was right in front of them and they didn't notice it.

    Exactly. How do you call it? Listening to Slayer and wearing black? It's absolutely impossible.

    But aren't they are gonna do that anyway? I get what you're saying though you can't really be like 'report suspicious white people more', it's definitely complex but we're way beyond the point of any sort of gun ban/ repeal so these sort of community led solutions are the only way forward.
