It depends on which bones they are, but the ordinary human has 208 bones.

Unless you get hit by a train. Then there's more.

Bizarre final words, fight in death chamber at inmate’s execution
By Associated Press
March 1, 2019 | 1:19am
Quote
HUNTSVILLE, Texas — A Texas inmate was executed Thursday evening for the killings nearly 30 years ago of his estranged wife’s parents and her brother, who was a police officer. ...

Asked to make a final statement, Coble replied: “That’ll be $5.”

He told the five witnesses he selected to be in attendance that he loved them, then again said: “That’ll be $5.” Coble nodded to the witnesses and added, “take care.”

He gasped several times and began snoring.

As Coble was finishing his statement, his son, a friend and a daughter-in-law became emotional and violent. They were yelling obscenities, throwing fists and kicking at others in the death chamber witness area.

Officers stepped in and the witnesses continued to resist. They were eventually moved to a courtyard and the two men were handcuffed.

“Why are you doing this?” the woman asked. “They just killed his daddy.” ...

You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
If they kill their own with no conscience, there is nothing to stop them from killing you.
Rational fear and anger at vicious murderous Islamic terrorists is the same as irrational antisemitism, according to the Leftists.

Town seizes debt-ridden family's pug, Edda, and sells her on eBay

by Vaishnavee Sharma

March 01, 2019 03:40 PM

 
Officials in a German town sold a pet dog named Edda on eBay after the family that owned it could not pay back their debts.

City workers from the town of Ahlen seized the local family’s belongings that included a laptop, a coffee machine, a wheelchair, and the one-year-old purebred pug, according to the Washington Post.

They listed the beloved family pet for sale online for roughly $850, drawing intense criticism on social media for their actions. Town officials defended their actions, claiming they were unable to find anything else of value to sell after Edda’s family had failed to pay off their debts to the town, including a dog tax.

The 'ridiculous' part of this story is that the State seized somebody's wheelchair to sell for debt and all the press cares about is a dog.

Vegans accused of killing piglets by accident after storming farm to cuddle them



A farmer has accused vegans of crushing two piglets to death after causing a stampede during their efforts to cuddle the newborn pigs.

200 vegans from the group "Meat the Victims" stormed a farm in Lincolnshire in order to protest against pork.

However, in their efforts to raise awareness about the "cruelty" of pig farming, they were accused of causing distress to the animals and inadvertently causing the death of two....

@240B

I think they are focusing on the dog to draw attention to how outrageous this whole business is to start with.

Seizing and selling someone's wheelchair is not only stupid,it's counterproductive since now the state  is going to have to cough up the money to buy the owner a new one.

Police: Man assaulted over Christmas songs on Route 28 in East Deer Township


Quote
EAST DEER TOWNSHIP, Pa. —
A man is facing several charges after assaulting another man over Christmas music during a drive on Route 28 on Monday, police said.

State police say Clayton Lucas, 25, assaulted the man because the victim was singing Christmas songs while transporting Lucas from a halfway house to a treatment class.

Investigators said Lucas became enraged that the victim was playing the music and began to strike and choke the victim, causing him to almost lose consciousness.

Unless things have really changed, upscale prep school kids wear ties and suit coats as a matter of course. Less would be underdressed for school.
Most likely the reporter was unaware of the dress codes at private schools.

In one alleged incident, Heard is accused of approaching a white couple in their 50s on Friday afternoon while they shopped in the Bronx. She reportedly told the couple she hated white people before assaulting them.

"They were approached by the defendant who kicked both victims and sprayed a substance in their face," an NYPD spokesperson stated in an email. ...

Court documents did not list an attorney for Heard, who is referred to in official documents and police reports by her legal first name, Thomas.  ...
