Does anyone have any particular favourite 'toolbox offences'?
Mine is S50 of the Police Reform Act, the power to require individuals reasonably suspected to be committing ASB to give names and addresses.

The corporate regulator has confirmed mining magnate and Palmer United Party founder Clive Palmer has been charged with fraud offences, and provided details of the alleged crimes. Asic says Palmer has been charged with four fraud offences that carry jail terms of five years. Two of the offences carry jail terms of up to 12 terms if the offence is aggravated. In a statement Asic said:
ASIC alleges that between 5 August 2013 and 5 September 2013, Mr Palmer dishonestly obtained a benefit or advantage for Cosmo Developments Pty Ltd and/or the Palmer United Party (PUP) and others by authorising the transfer of $10,000,000 contrary to the purpose for which the funds were being held. It is alleged that he dishonestly used his position as a director of Mineralogy Pty Ltd (Mineralogy), a mining company owned by him, in obtaining that advantage. ASIC also alleges that, between 31 August 2013 and 3 September 2013, Mr Palmer dishonestly obtained a benefit or advantage for Media Circus Network Pty... keep reading on reddit ➡

>In 1688 there were 50 offences on the statute book punishable by death, but that number had almost quadrupled by 1776, and it reached 220 by the end of the century. Most of the new laws introduced during that period were concerned with the defence of property, which some commentators have interpreted as a form of class suppression of the poor by the rich. George Savile, 1st Marquess of Halifax, expressed a contemporary view when he said that "Men are not hanged for stealing horses, but that horses may not be stolen". Grand larceny was one of the crimes that drew the death penalty; it was defined as the theft of goods worth more than 12 pence, about one-twentieth of the weekly wage for a skilled worker at the time. As the 18th century proceeded, jurors often deliberately under-assessed the value of stolen goods, in order to avoid a mandatory death sentence.
>As the 17th century drew to a close, lawmakers sought a less harsh punishment that might still deter po... keep reading on reddit ➡
It’s no secret that the best offences during the season produce some of the best fantasy players. And every year there’s always new offences at the top of the league that we didn’t expect would be there at the start.
Which offences do you see being absolutely explosive this year? Whether it’s their passing attack or their rushing attack?
A personal favorite of mine this year is the Giants passing attack. I think they can be very good with the receivers they have and that’s why Daniel Jones is one of the best values to get this year imo.
On mobile, apologies for any typos.
I committed an academic dishonesty offence in my final year of uni. It was one of the compulsory modules, and I took a piece of coursework from a friend to refer to, and in a moment of desperation, I paraphrased it and submitted it as mine. This coursework is worth 25% of the grade for that module. I obviously got caught and immediately admitted to my mistake.
The results of the disciplinary hearing were that I will be getting a P grade (administrative grade indicating proven academic dishonesty), and my grade for the coursework will be capped at the minimum. However, my grade for the exam, which is worth 75%, was not capped. I deeply regretted my actions, and studied very hard for my other exams, and my coursework for the other modules was well researched. I got a distinction in one module; and merit for the other two. I expect to graduate with an upper second class honours degree.
My resit coursework is due soon. I want to start my LPC in Januar... keep reading on reddit ➡
Went on a second date with a girl, by a gorgeous lake and forest trail hike. Before she accepted the activity I mentioned a picnic as part of the activities.
In the car she asked what kind of food I brought and I brought a flask of tea, strawberries, two mini chocolate desserts in glass containers, two fresh cream pastries, carrots and Moroccan humus, chocolate, 2 waters, 2 cans of coke and an assortment of sandwiches including tuna, chicken tikka and the classic and safe ham and cheese.
She laughed at me and cringed when I mentioned sandwiches and the fact I brought them on a date.
I also brought napkins, disposable plastic spoons and butter knives, disposable hot beverage cups, and sachets of sugar and sweetener.
Am I missing something here? Are sandwiches too basic???
Also to note, she brought nothing.
The goal of a good team is to make the playoffs. The goal of a good defence or offence is to earn/limit as many points as possible. I thought it would be interesting to look at the teams who failed the first goal (making the playoffs) yet was still a historically good offence/defence.
Scoring offence: 2004 Kansas City Chiefs 7-9 Scored 30.2 ppg, 37th all time (7.7 ppg from #1 2013 Broncos)
Notes: I'm new to football so I only heard stories of the pre-Reid chiefs. However, now that I know that there was a team that scored 30 points per game and missed the playoffs... I concede that they deserve Mahomes.
Scoring defense: 1977 Atlanta Falcons 7-7 Allowed 9.2 ppg, 1st all time (0 points from #1 wtf 1977 Atlanta Falcons)
Notes: What the actual fuck. In a decade with the Raiders, Vikings and Steelers, the Falcons managed to be the best scoring defence. A team which accomplished absolutely fucking nothing and was preceded and preceded by below average defences managed to beat out teams th... keep reading on reddit ➡

I am increasingly interested by the idea of having a waifu although I feel some things are limiting that experience. There are also just some other questions I am looking for a deeper interpretation of.

Hello, I am a PhD researcher looking into sexual offences, sexual violence and rape myths. If you could complete this survey that will only take 15 minutes it would be much appreciated. I am hoping reddit provides the path for information internationally. Many thanks. The link is below;
