You know I’ve always been kind of freaked out at home depot and other hardware stores, there are so many dangerous things just - right there!. The poor hot dog guy is lucky they didn’t shoplift a hatchet.
> Actually that’s not true. Working out “all day” won’t make you any bigger than a good 1 to 1 1/2 hour workout three or four days a week. In fact it would be counter-productive. Muscles grow on the rest days not in the gym. Also, these guys don’t look that buff at all and certainly aren’t as built as 90% of the guys in my gym - I doubt they lift.
It was satirical hyperbole. (of sorts)..; )

I find this story hard to believe. They took the cell phone but left the hot dogs? They are truly disturbed individuals.

The shooter who killed the Aussie baseball player exhibits no remorse, is very proud of his murder, was dancing and singing with joy as he was led to jail and at his arraignment in court and simply does not think he has done anything wrong.
