I feel like the musical choice, here, was dead-on perfect. Now, normally, you wouldn't hear me espousing a a nu-metal cover of a Beatles tune as any such thing, but hear me out.

Taking the familiar chords of an unforgettable rock & roll classic, and mushing it up with the dreary, lo-fidelity, grey audio gruel that nu-metal brings to the musical potluck evokes the two feelings that this movie is certain to produce.

(1) Familiarity with a thing you like and enjoy, then

(2) Disappointment, when you realize it's the worst possible version of that thing, available, anywhere

It's so apt a musical choice, it can't possibly be coincidence.

YESSS. Florida Man may get a lot of bad press, but Florida Rep Alcee L. Hastings has a couple things straight.

Mylan is not recalling the EpiPen in the United States and it’s unclear if that’s because the company has confidence in the manufacturing of the product in this country, or if the US has lower standards.

I'm think it's evident to all that America has low standards.
People around the world depend on their EpiPen to work in the case of life-threatening allergic reactions. But two people recently found out the hard way that their EpiPens were faulty. As a result, the makers of EpiPen are recalling over 81,000 EpiPens in Norway, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan.

Mylan is not recalling the EpiPen in the United States and it’s unclear if that’s because the company has confidence in the manufacturing of the product in this country, or if the US has lower standards. As Mylan’s Australian website notes, the “recalled product was manufactured by Meridian Medical Technologies in St. Louis Missouri, USA.”

There you go, everyone. When Mee Ma and Uncle Rusty start wondering why they can't get their medicines, show them this, and that warm glow of making America great again will pull up the bootstraps of their hearts.
Is clawing back a few nickels and dimes really worth immiserating 20 million people?

And that's the system working as intended. Immigrants living in fear? Check.

Women living in fear? Check.

The white plutocrat supremacy machine continues unopposed.

SQ mind affecting immunity

Mind-affecting immunity (Ex) Death bayuk are intelligent, curious creatures, but their brains work in a manner unlike most magical beasts. They are immune to any mind-affecting effect that allows spell resistance.

Energy Drain (Su) The tentacles of a death bayuk are studded with suction cups that can not only hold prey fast, but also rapidly sap the life from those entrapped by them. A creature grappled by a death bayuk suffers energy drain each round it remains grappled.

This malformed 10-foot giant stares from under a heavy brow with bulging, cruel eyes. His gaunt, almost sickly form hides great strength and his presence inspires a tangible dread.

SQ hideous vitality, seven league step

Gloom Aura (Su) A nulgawr's presence saps color and strength from nearby living things. Living creatures with fewer hit dice than the nulgawr exposed to the gloom aura become fatigued while they remain within the aura, and for 5 rounds after exiting the aura. Exposed non-sentient plants become shriveled and gray, as if affected by the "stunt growth" option of the spell diminish plants.

Hideous Vitality (Ex) A nulgawr adds his charisma bonus to his Fortitude saves.

Mangle (Ex) A nulgawr's claws can mutilate opponents horribly. When a nulgawr rends a foe, the target must make a DC 19 Fortitude save or take 1d6 damage, applied to a randomly determined ability score. The save DC is Strength-based.

Seven League Step (Sp) Once per hour, a nulgawr can step between spaces, as if by using the spell dimension door. His caster level for this effect is equal to his hit dice. He cannot take other creatures with him when he uses this ability.

Funny how that works, huh?

The aim of the GOP is white male plutocracy, everything else is negotiable.
Tom the Dancing Bug, IN WHICH Donald Trump soberly analyzes the data and determines which risks to American lives are worth horribly cruel policies.
