Intend: honestmerchantsailor: passivity: Would also be really annoying if they wore heat resistant gloves to throw back the hot tear gas canisters and if this got shared to all those protesting… Would be a further shame if people started covering cameras (as seen in Hong Kong, with protestors using poles and rakes to lift cardboard boxes over security cameras), blinding drone optics with laser pointers, and flooding police-run reporting apps with junk data. It would be a shame if the protesters noted that plainclothes cops can be identified a number of ways, such as wearing steel-toed boots; an armband or wristband of a particular color; driving white, black, or dark blue cars with concealed lights; or having the outline of cuffs visible in the back pocket or the bumps of an armor vest’s shoulder straps under their shirt. It would be a shame if the protesters began making their signs out of inch-thick plywood to stop rubber bullets, forming a tight shield wall to prevent police from singling out and mobbing individual protesters. It would be a shame if the people behind the shield wall held up umbrellas so that tear gas canisters fired over the heads of the front line will be bounced away. It would be a shame if protesters began constructing improvised armor vests out of duct tape, hardback books, and ceramic tiles. It would be a shame if protesters started wearing safety glasses, hard hats, respirators, and gardening gloves, all of which can be found at the same hardware stores as the plywood. It would be a shame if they started using traffic cones (the kind without the hole in the top) upside-down buckets, or other improvised lids to contain tear gas by placing them over the canisters. It would be a shame if protesters learned that police scanners are legal to own in the US, allowing them to learn where police are moving and what routes they intend to take. It would be a shame if they discovered that these scanners can be used to send as well as receive, allowing them to flood the scanner frequencies with noise. All this would be a terrible, terrible shame.

 GUYS I WANT CASTLE
 1. PRICE: $1,621,200
 This 13,993-square-foot, 6-bedroom cestle sits on 24 acres of land overlooking the
 countryside of Midi Pyrenees. Features include a large entrance hall opening to the
 courtyard, salon with a fireplace, grand staircase, elevator, large dining room with
 fireplace, two kitchens, a bedroom wing with a hal onto the courtyard, study rooms
 in the towers, two garages, and access to the chapel and east wing
 PRICE: $1,650,000
 Here's a 1-bed, 15-bath, 1200-square-foot apartment on Eest 30th Street
 2 102909
 Update The castle as of April 2015 is actualy only around $1,300,000 USD now
 due to the currency exchange ratesl D
 this goes even further, some European countries will give you a castle for free if
 you submit a plan stating how you intend to restore or preserve it Italy alone for
 example has somewhere between 100 and 300 castles they intend to give away
 to anyone with intent to be a caretaker, they iteraly cant keep track of how
 many discount casties are up for grabs
 It doesn't even have to be an ambitious plan, even it it says you just intend to
 keep it from becoming more shitty and will occasionally add a few bricks when
 you can aford it. given that most of them come with land you could convert the
 grounds to actually produce enough income to pay for the repairs-like setting up
 apple trees and brewing cider you sell with your castle name on the bottle or
 raising some goats for cheese, a hobby farm could turn this into an actual
 income opportunity. hell, throwing parties at the caste could make it an income
 opportunity
 they will literally-GIVE you a caste to make sure someone is taking care of
 ramer men let them a sit empty

 I once had a woman come in and ordered an Americano with 19 shots of

 golden coins. My life will end soon,I am sure of i.
 Do you still have the Add Energy' packets?
 My heart began to race at this request. Yes maam.
 How many can I add?
 Futile though it is, at least I know the rote response to this. "For health
 reasons, we won't add more than one per drink and we cannot sell the packets
