It's probably not relevant, but just in case you are wondering what the Oklahoma Supreme Court looks like...

Sounds like another good reason to not eat meat.

As I said to someone else, no one needs to buy kinetic sand, it's incredibly easy to make. If an allergy is an issue with that sort of thing, they can make it themselves. Same with play-dough. Why are they trusting someone else to do it with stuff so easy to make they literally have kids make it themselves in things like Girl Scouts.

I just want to point out that there's a statue's butt on the side of the article and that's kind of weird.

Not according to my searching. I mean kinetic sand is so damn easy to make, it's not worth buying period. But if you're really worried about the gluten thing, it's so easy to make it yourself.

If I wanted to answer your question, I would tell you that "presenting as" is the preferred term, but since I'm just looking for a fight, I won't tell you that.

Yeah, but as far as I know, it's sand and corn starch. At least that's what my daughter used in the girl scouts.

And there's such a thing as a corn allergy as well, so I guess those people have to look for the corn-free kinetic sand?

I’m sure if we look at her fastest time as a male it would be slower than the top female.

First of all, she was never male any more than a gay person isn't heterosexual before telling people they're gay. She competed on a man's team before coming out of the closet and was rated sixth fastest "man" in the nation at the time. Now she's being beaten by CIS women. Sounds like whatever advantage she had when she was on that team doesn't exist anymore, which, again, suggests it's more complicated than just genetics.

Why people are so against the idea of "it's more complicated than that" and think anything biological has such a simple answer is just kind of sad because it shows such ignorance of basic science.

Edit: Thanks for proving it, downvoters. Let me guess- you also think a single gene is responsible for eye color.

Okay, but who ever heard of sand that wasn't hypoallergenic? Is that really a thing? Has someone with celiac or a nut allergy had that allergy triggered by sand?

I'm not annoyed. I was amused. I'm still amused at the idea of gluten-free sand. All sand is gluten-free. It's sand.

Someone else said their child would have an issue with the playdough, so fair enough. But the sand? Why would anyone think that sand had gluten in it in the first place?

In a soliloquy on batteries for electric vehicles, including ships, he pondered what would happen if such a boat were to sink and the battery would submerge.

...

“It must be because of MIT, my relationship with MIT, very smart, I say, what would happen if the boat sank from its weight, and you have this tremendously powerful battery, and the battery is now underwater and there’s a shark that’s approximately 10 yards over there,” he said as MAGA supporters listened intently. “By the way, a lot of shark attacks lately. Did you notice this? A lot of sha…”

...

“So there is a shark 10 yards from the boat, ten yards… or here,” he said. “Do I get electrocuted if the boat is sinking, water goes over the battery, the boat is sinking? Do I stay on top of the boat and get electrocuted, or do I jump over by the shark and not get electrocuted?”

...

“He didn’t know. He said: ‘Nobody has ever asked me that question.’ I said, ‘I think it’s a good question. I think there is a lot of electric current coming through that water,’” Trump said. “But you know what I would do if there is a shark or you get electrocuted? I’ll take electrocution every single time.* I’m not getting near the shark.”
