I remember a few times in Hilton Head walking pretty close to an alligator before I realized it was there. Do alligators really go after dogs like this implies?

Wait, what I don't get is why did they need the second tag? It looks like the second baseman's foot is on the bag when he catches the throw from the first baseman. Is it just that the umps were...

I'd prefer the basic income over minimum wage but I'm guessing that's a political non-starter. I don't mind a minimum wage, but taxi drivers and Uber drivers in NY make that, so it doesn't help...

No! I'm right! The main character of In Cold Blood is Richard Hickock! Oh, and Perry Smith.

Huh, then maybe it's not heavy metal and it's something like British musicians sang songs named for these books?

A woman's tongue was inseminated by a squid after eating undercooked seafood

Kerouac's parents were from Quebec so he grew up speaking French. I think Ishiguro was born in Japan, and wasn't Martell born in France? or Spain?
