They just released a rapist out into the suburb if rivervale. This is the second time he has been released. Last time it took him only 5 days to kidnap and rape a 17 year old girl. Clearly he’ll be doing it again. I don’t imagine he’d be as resistant this time. Don’t be friendly to strange men, don’t try to be kind, you never know what kind of monster is hiding behind that friendly smile.
Be careful out there ladies.

That’s… only 10 minutes away by car from where I live.
To the OP or whoever can answer: do you have the guy’s name? Tried searching Google but “Perth rapist Rivervale” is too generic, and it’d probably be a wise thing to understand his MO.
What did the father buffalo say to his son before leaving on a long journey?
He said, “Bison.”
I’ve been meaning to post something about The Big Bang Theory for a while now but it’s taken me ‘till now to really understand what it is about the show that makes me uncomfortable. I’m not exactly a believer in the whole “only write about the things you like, don’t trash the things you don’t” trend which seems to be plaguing comments sections in negative articles lately, but I wanted to be able to really examine why I don’t like TBBT rather than just slagging it off. My main questions being - Why don’t I like this anymore? Why do I feel uncomfortable watching it? And why do I get so annoyed when I see people sing its praises online? The thing which really sparked this post was seeing a raft of comments on Facebook, below the last round of voting in Television Without Pity’s Tubey Awards, claiming The Big Bang Theory to be “the best comedy on TV”. This made me angry so instead of posting an impulsive comment calling out their bad taste which I’d probably regret later, I decided to really analyse why seeing comments like that made me so mad when previously, although I didn’t really love the show, I’d never considered myself as disliking The Big Bang Theory.
Hell, I even have season one on dvd, it’s sitting right between Battlestar Galactica and Bored To Death in my alphabetised collection.
And here, I think, is where my problem with The Big Bang Theory lies…
ACCIDENTALLY STEPPING ON YOUR PET IS THE WORST THING EVER
THEY TRUSTED YOU AND YOU STEPPED ON THEM AND THEY CAN’T EVEN UNDERSTAND YOUR APOLOGY BECAUSE THEY DON’T SPEAK ENGLISH
You know what’s worse?
STEPPING ON THEIR CHILDREN THOSE POOR BABIES
One of my students, in his own country, is going through some conflicted identity and emotional issues because, bottom line, he’s going to an American school. When I see that kid, I see me 15 years ago. The confusion, the frustration, the hurt, the fear. And this something he’s going to be dealing…
I’ve actually thought about this recently. If anyone was to ask me, I would say that despite living in Italy for seven years, my four months in Japan was the best “out of country” experience of my life. And that reason, quite simply, is because when I lived overseas on military bases, I might have lived in that country, but I hardly interacted with it. We lived and went to school in an American community, and the whole time we were in Italy, we were whining over what we were missing in the States. But when I went to Japan, even though the program I was in at my school wasn’t the most immersing kind of program, I had to - HAD TO - immerse myself into Japanese life. When I needed to go to the grocery store, add more time on my phone, go out to eat, all of these things I had to do in Japanese, surrounded by Japanese people. I had to go out of my American way to cater to them, rather than how we lived in Italy, with Italians working on our base and catering to us. I so, so feel this post, and it makes me regret those wasted years in Italy. (I’d add the three years I lived in Panama as well, but I was only 3-6 years old then, so it’s not like I would have appreciated that experience then.)
This is why I will forever roll my eyes at people who think that having people travel the world will somehow magically make them better people. LOL, nope. You need a reality check, brah.
Not everyone is like that, though. I would think that travelling in general would at least make you a little bit wiser, being exposed to all sorts of different cultures. I would hope so.
