The Weird, Random or Interesting Things That Fit Nowhere Else Thread

Heh, a friend I know is complaining about all the "Trust in Jesus to get through the Day"  "Believe in God to carry you forward" messages that are filling up his social media.

So he then slapped up :

 

"You can have all the faith you want in spirits and the afterlife, heaven and hell, but when it comes to the world, don't be an idiot, because you can tell me that you put your faith in God to get through the day but when it comes time to cross the road, I know you look both ways."

That place looks more like a shelter. Tigers and other wild animals are often confiscated from regular people who try to keep them as pets and they can't return to the wild. A shelter at that point is their only option. 

 

That would explain the ton of cats and dogs.

Civilization, in fact, grows more and more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. - H.L. Mencken

I break the glass push the handle and move the tie down. Roll for success.

I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*

I don't think the cable loop is long enough for that to succeed. It is already close to taunt, so the handle would need to go down to a 90-degree angle from the rest position for the loop to pass the bottom of the handle; possibly more.

I realize that, considering how close the window is it is quite feasible if a bit slow.

I'm not entirely convinced that solution isn't vulnerable to a breaking the window and using a bolt cutter. Or if you have a lot of ammo, just spraying into the door until you can physically break through it.

 

But most school shooters seem to be opportunistic rather than determined, so it'll probably work 9 times out of 10.

I have to think someone in the locked room will have the good sense to break the arm sticking through the window trying to cut the cable lock.

Get off my lawn!

We have 2 by 4's in all of the classes with a strap that we attach to the door. Pretty simple, and the 2 by 4 makes a decent weapon if things escalate.
