Good thing this story was written or else I would have never known they found some glass bottles in the dirt :/
I think the funniest thing about the anti-gay stance of the Boy Scouts is that the Boy Scouts is the gayest thing I've ever been involved with in my entire life.
Good thing they provided the smallest pictures possible :/
While I agree that it could offer a handful of jobs to the city and county, one only needs to drive through Scotland County to get a taste of what it would look like. The place has a facility for this type of "gaming" on practically every street corner. Kind of amazing for a county with such high unemployment. The building they use are the most ramshackle ones, as well. They look terrible and don't contribute any real value to area.
“Come off it, Mr. Dent,” he said, “you can’t win, you know. You can’t lie in front of the bulldozer indefinitely.” He tried to make his eyes blaze fiercely but they just wouldn’t do it. Arthur lay in the mud and squelched at him. “I’m game,” he said, “we’ll see who rusts first.” “I’m afraid you’re going to have to accept it,” said Mr. Prosser, gripping his fur hat and rolling it round the top of his head; “this bypass has got to be built and it’s going to be built!” “First I’ve heard of it,” said Arthur, “why’s it got to be built?” Mr. Prosser shook his finger at him for a bit, then stopped and put it away again. “What do you mean, why’s it got to be built?” he said. “It’s a bypass. You’ve got to build bypasses.” Bypasses are devices that allow some people to dash from point A to point B very fast while other people dash from point B to point A very fast. People living at point C, being a point directly in between, are often given to wonder what’s so great about point A that so many people from point B are so keen to get there, and what’s so great about point B that so many people from point A are so keen to get there. They often wish that people would just once and for all work out where the hell they wanted to be. Mr. Prosser wanted to be at point D. Point D wasn’t anywhere in particular, it was just any convenient point a very long way from points A, B and C. He would have a nice little cottage at point D, with axes over the door, and spend a pleasant amount of time at point E, which would be the nearest pub to point D. His wife of course wanted climbing roses, but he wanted axes. He didn’t know why—he just liked axes. He flushed hotly under the derisive grins of the bulldozer drivers. - The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams
Really? They paid an organization to tell them to focus on "entrepreneurs in the technology, wellness and military industries"? I've never seen someone say so little with so much as I did when I read "To build out these innovation clusters, we propose a multifaceted ‘ecosystem strategy’ focused on creating a robust pipeline of talent, building a strong enabling environment to help scale high-impact, high-growth enterprises, measuring their economic and social impact, and ensuring that local economic and community development policies support these efforts". Were there any more details on how they planned to leverage the local university and community college systems for this effort? Any details on how they expect to attract or keep talent in this area when considering the appeal of Raleigh/Durham just down the road?
