I realized recently that one of my wife's classmates bears a strong resemblance to Naomi Scott, star of Aladdin and Power Rangers.

So far the only person I've told is my wife. And now you guys.

Yeah. These days, if you send your kid to play over at someone else's house, there's the real possibility communication will be completely cut off until your kid comes home again.

Of course, I'm pretty sure we all spent full days cut off from communication from our parents just by going out to play in the Barrens.

Or the college sports fields, or the BMX track out by the mall - that was awesome fun, I kinda marvel that we had unfettered access to the thing.

I more meant that at that friend’s house, there was (mostly) guaranteed to be a phone on a desk/wall, one which did not require a passcode to use, one which was guaranteed to always be in the same place, one which had a consistent interface across all manufacturers, etc.

A guy with bad form who is in shape could beat someone with good form who is out of shape.

Wasn't a C-list celebrity boxing thing at one time? I think Cruise is too busy flying helicopters and battling Xenus to bother with Bieber.

Tom Cruise regularly suffers broken bones and refuses to even end the shot he's in. During Mission Impossible Fallout, he broke his ankle jumping between buildings, pulled himself up onto the next roof, and limped off camera, without cutting the shot. So there's that.

I've seen the old Bieber "imma try to fight and look like a high schooler doing it" videos.

But evidently he's been training recently.

If you order from an app, DO NOT order from a chain restaurant with a lot of locations in the city. If Philly is any indication, it'll either pick a RANDOM restaurant that could be as far as THIRTY blocks away(such as today)-OR-all their deliveries will be made in one location because someone thought that was a good idea despite it breeding logical chaos.

Male college student poses as a teenage girl online in order to catch predators; ends up catching a cop

"Ethan, a 20-year-old San Francisco Bay Area college student, used Snapchat's gender-switch filter to become Esther and posed on Tinder as a 19-year-old because Tinder does not allow juveniles to open accounts .... San Mateo Police Officer Robert Davies, 40, began talking with who he thought was Esther on Tinder on May 11, before the two switched to Kik messaging app, where Ethan said Esther was 16, which 'Davies acknowledged,' according to a release from the San Jose Police Department."

The cop got arrested for "suspicion of contacting a minor to commit a felony" and is on administrative leave.

At first when I saw your I was thinking, "Oh, they were both looking for child predators and caught each other!" Then I read the rest and ....no. Oh no.

Glad that cop got caught, though. Or when any child predator gets caught, especially without a child being harmed.

That was even after I tried sharpening the plate. Some of the older plates here in AZ lost their paint either to sun damage or - what I perceive might be more likely - people trying to "spray" them to avoid traffic cameras which are prolific here in the Valley.
