In three videos posted to Facebook by the man, D’Arreion Toles, a woman is first seen blocking Toles’ entry into the downtown residential building. When he asks her to “please move, ma’am,” she demands to know if he is a resident.

The uncomfortable exchange continues for several minutes, with the woman asking Toles for his unit number and to see his key fob for the building. The videos have been shared more than 134,000 times since they were posted online Saturday.

“I’m uncomfortable,” she said, explaining why she continued to block his way.

“OK, you can be uncomfortable,” Toles answers. “That’s your discretion. You’re uncomfortable because of you.”

The woman is then seen following Toles in the building and trying to block his way into the elevator. Once inside, she follows him to his floor while continuing to ask to see his keys. “I want to see who you’re going to see,” she tells him.

WTF.

They failed mandatory pregnancy tests at school. Then they were expelled
CNN

It happens twice a year at Arusha Secondary School. Each of the school’s 800 female students are accompanied into a toilet and told to pee in a jar. Outside the cubicle, a teacher waits to make sure the samples are not swapped. Read the full story

Major changes

Sorry if I am not on much or responding in the next few days.  Ron wants me to have a bigger TV as my eyesight has decreased.   I no longer play my xboxes as I can not clearly see the screen on the 32 inch TV in my office.  I had not complained as I have enough other things to do.    This morning Ron decided he wanted to move the bedroom 46 inch ( which has always been my fav TV as it has everything any tech person could want ) into my office.  I asked him to wait until my sunday news programs are over as the move would require emptying four different adjustable shelves, then moving stuff and shelves to a different position, plus all the stuff I had on the floor on the shelves in front of my desk would have to be moved as the top shelf would have to go down there as the 46 inch TV is much larger than the one I have here.  Ron did not understand how big a project it is , but did after I showed him.  

Long story short, Ron is letting me move things at my pace , as slow as it is, while he worked on the new paneling in the front room, and now he is napping.    I am very glad to be getting the TV I love, and in truth we simply do not use it there since I got my office.  But it takes a lot of effort for me to move all this stuff, Ron brought in the step ladder as he wouldn’t let me use the step stool,  but I have to take each thing down, decided to keep it or not, if keeping it clean it and decided where to put it.  It is a much bigger job than I intended this weekend.   But I do want the bigger TV.  

Thanks for understanding.  I am off to try to move more stuff.  ( side note how did I get so much stuff? )  Hugs

Oh good, it’s almost over.

Except placebos are real.

Religious certainty never corrects.
