tough decisions

should i watch man united and arsenal through the bottom of a glass down at the pub ?

british bluebells seem smaller and thinner than the so-called spanish ones, the flowers are darker, and more translucent too, even iridescent in the right light, and if you look closely then you'll see that a bluebell is mostly purple ... with blue stripes

i think i've said this before ... that although bluebell woods are often very damp, it is worth laying down to get the full therapeutic experience of the perfume

a discussion of the following sentences' implications might usefully occupy a class of schoolchildren for forty minutes

As we explained in the Section 2340A Memorandum, "pain and suffering" as used in Section 2340 is best understood as a single concept, not distinct concepts of "pain" as distinguished from "suffering"...

The waterboard, which inflicts no pain or actual harm whatsoever, does not, in our view inflict "severe pain or suffering".

Even if one were to parse the statute more finely to treat "suffering" as a distinct concept, the waterboard could not be said to inflict severe suffering.

The waterboard is simply a controlled acute episode, lacking the connotation of a protracted period of time generally given to suffering.
