It's election day (again) in the 9th District of North Carolina. The previous election was tainted by mail-in ballot stuffing on the Republican side, so the result was voided. The Republican won last time by only 900 votes, and they expect an equally close vote this time. Polls close at 7:30 Eastern time.

She reminds me of mai youngest sister.
She was the one who once said, “I can’t get pregnant 🤰anymore , I’ve had too many abortions.”

Trapped hiking family rescued after sending message in bottle

Whitson told the Washington Post he hiked the same route seven years ago and descended the very same waterfall by rappelling down a rope attached to its side. But this time, there was no rope to be found and it was too dangerous to backtrack.

So, stranded miles from the nearest campground and without cell service, he wrote an SOS note on a bar order pad his girlfriend apparently brought to keep score playing card games: "We are stuck here at the waterfall. Get help please." He put the note in a green water bottle, carved "help" into its side, and tossed the message downstream.

Todd Brethour and Tony Ramage are with the California Highway Patrol Air Operations Unit. They found Whitson around midnight on June 15, just hours after hikers found his floating message.

At that point, it was too dark to stage the rescue but by the next morning, CHP officers descended on Whitson's campsite, where the family had spelled SOS on a tarp with rocks, and airlifted the trio of hikers to safety.

"It would've been pretty – almost impossible in some areas to actually get out of there, you know?" Ramage said. Added Brethour, "They were really out of options if they hadn't gotten the message out that way, it might've been a while."

Well at least it's not forecast yet to get beyond tropical storm strength. Still, this system will be traveling directly over devastated areas of the Bahamas.

Some good advice here:



Along a similar vein:


This advises caution on how you go about dealing with assholes on the internet. Specifically about the far right, there's a lot of crossover with garden variety douchebags on the internet. Like, riling up a jerk could just provoke them to go turn their shit on some other softer target, if they weren't able to punch down on you, they certainly can find someone else to punch down on.
