How many shower/locker rooms are required for teams with transgenders? I'm guessing 4. No way transgender females can shower with females or straight males. This is all very confusing to this old guy.

I happened to catch one of the newer episodes of It's Always Sunny yesterday (I hadnt watched I think after like 2012) The whole show was how they should label the bathrooms in the bar and who should be able to use which one. It was pretty damn funny.

As many as physically possible in the space around the events. Gender is fluid. It's not 2 genders, or 4, there are infinite. In order to try to get as many options as possible, you should literally just keep building shower/locker facilities until the events are completely over.... then you can stop.

Or we should maybe not be so hung up about seeing other people's bedazzled junk in a locker room.

Shower stalls for everyone solves this problem. Group showering is effing gross anyway, especially for teens.

The dead neighbor - 30 year old male - is involved. The body was put out in the woods after the police started searching the neighborhood trash cans. Disgusting. :cry:

It is unfortunate that this followed the normal pattern.

Indiana University of Pennsylvania Police are investigating a shooting at an off-campus apartment near campus.

Police say around 8 p.m. this evening, three African-American males dressed in black clothing wearing ski masks were involved in a shooting in the 800 block of Wayne Avenue.

Didn't see this shared anywhere else, but this happened a couple days ago, and it is a good thing.

LA County DA Moves To Dismiss 66,000 Marijuana-Related Convictions
Los Angeles County courts may soon throw out nearly 66,000 marijuana-related convictions of residents dating back more than 50 years.

Los Angeles District Attorney Jackie Lacey has asked a judge to dismiss and seal the records of 62,000 felony cannabis convictions for cases as early as 1961, as well as, 3,700 misdemeanor cannabis possession cases.

Lacey, who is caught in a tight race for the district attorney seat against two progressive candidates, called it a marker of the sweeping change that can occur when government partners with technology leaders.

"We believe it is the largest effort in California to wipe out old criminal convictions in a single court motion," she said in a news conference on Thursday.

The move comes about a year and a half after Lacey agreed to partner with Code for America in a pilot program that uses an algorithm to identify convictions that qualify for resentencing or dismissal under the state's Proposition 64.

One of the restaurants in Philly, I think Brauhaus Schmitz, doesn't have separate restrooms, but instead one large restroom, where the sinks are located, and within it individual private rooms with doors that contain the toilets. I think that setup should be the standard for all new buildings.

“ In laboratory studies, immune cells equipped with the new receptor were shown to kill lung, skin, blood, colon, breast, bone, prostate, ovarian, kidney and cervical cancer.”

It's nice to read these stories, but it seems like I have seen hundreds of potential cures for cancer in the last ten years. I get that it is extremely difficult to get it from this stage to a workable cure that they can patent, but it's still jading.

Yeah. For what it's worth, my wife read into this a few weeks ago and was genuinely excited about it. She is incredibly cynical about these kinds of claims.

I would be, too. Until we see it actually work in a human being, my hope level is low.
