“We are doing a seismic retrofit on this apartment building. This is, quite literally, what we discovered. There was nothing supporting the unit above. No connections or even anything touching the ground besides the stucco facade. Thank goodness we had shoring put in place
For all of the guys struggling with getting matches on dating apps
I been getting consistent matches and a decent amount of girls even like my profile first.
My demographic: 28, large city, asian american (least swiped on race statistically so if I can do it you guys can too), appearance wise I am the fit nerdy type.
The fact is most girls as in over 90% are looking for a relationship rather than a casual hookup. If you’re competing on the hookup game chances are you will not succeed. I got off any apps with hookup stigma like Tinder. I went for CoffeeMeetsBagel and Hinge instead.
There was mass confusion at a Christmas service in Sri Lanka when the program featured the words to Tupac Shakur’s 1997 song, “Hail Mary,” instead of the traditional Catholic prayer, according to multiple reports.
The service took place on December 11 in Colombo, but pictures of the program went viral during the Christmas holiday.
Both the “Hail Mary” prayer and Tupac Shakur’s rap song ask Mother Mary to intercede on behalf of sinners, but they differ greatly on the specifics.
The letter George H.W. Bush wrote Bill Clinton as he left office
Jan. 20, 1993
When I walked into this office just now I felt the same sense of wonder and respect that I felt four years ago. I know you will feel that, too.
I wish you great happiness here. I never felt the loneliness some Presidents have described.
There will be very tough times, made even more difficult by criticism you may not think is fair. I’m not a very good one to give advice; but just don’t let the critics discourage you or push you off course
You will be our President when you read this note. I wish you well. I wish your family well.
Your success now is our country’s success. I am rooting hard for you.
Good Luck — George
The tolerances(spaces between moving parts) in the AK are loose. There’s lots of room for gunk and dirt to get in there and the gun will still fire and cycle when the trigger is pulled. With loose tolerances, failure to properly clean and lube the weapon won’t hinder it from firing like the M-16 from the Vietnam era.
In addition the AK uses a gas piston technology rather than direct impingement. Both systems use the gas from the recently fired round to load the next round. With the AK the gas is directed to a piston rather than directly at the bolt carrier. This keeps the bolt cleaner and results in less jams. However, it creates additional movement not present in the direct method and therefore sacrifices accuracy.
