Presently there enters a performer whose appearance is hailed with universal acclamation, a performer whose terrible realism rivets the attention of the most languid, and there is a dead hush. So horribly but unconventionally repulsive is his makeup that if you have not seen him before you instinctively tighten your hold upon your walking-stick. He slouches unto a stool upon the stage, casts a malignant scowl around, and then, without any trick of manner, without any attempt at effect, tells the story, just as it would pass through his mind, of a convict in the condemned cell the night before his execution; no maudlin, chaplain-humbugging criminal, but a callous, ferocious, impenitent murderer, who ends every verse of his chant with the refrain, " D——n your eyes!"

Nothing so shudderingly gruesome as Bob Ross's song, "Sam Hall," has been heard before or since.

If I were to have been having these troubles in any other class, I would never have taken my list of ideas to my classmates to ask their opinion.

I mean, if Vincent were to have been having an affair with Madge, his stock really drops at that point!

The feeling in the stadium definitely changed. Seems like everyone had had been having fun, and now everyone was getting more fired up. Horns. Wow. A totally different sound than the BB, and it seemed to me to be louder. Much more powerful than the BB. I can also remember Peter Cetera's voice, and the amazing guitar of who I now know was Terry Kath.


I think it is all the more dangerous that nowadays many young people with only a dim awareness of history are able to absorb themselves in the truth-twisting work of KOBAYASHI Yoshinori. But I had the same experience 25 years ago. It was a time when I had had been having my doubts about the Japanese history taught in the high school and was bothered by the contradiction I found in society.

Craven had already been convicted of DWI three times and had spent time in jail for the death of a child in 2000. In the 2000 case, he was pulling onto the shoulder to pass another car while speeding and hit a parked van. The van had had been having mechanical problems and was parked on the shoulder. The driver and passengers were waiting for a taxi when Craven’s car hit the back of the van at full speed. A child who was in the van died at the scene. Craven served only two years in jail for the crime.

She had faced a difficult choice - between following her husband's "Aliyah" dream , thereby keeping her marriage and family together, or remaining in the States , where she had had been having a long-term clandestine love affair . She had claimed she had been pressurized into the move, and therefore, her consent was not freely given, resulting in the removal being wrongful. The court rejected this argument. She had clearly planned to uproot and settle in Israel, but quickly regretted her choice as she could not overcome her longing for her lover in the United States, it said

A man who drove "like a maniac" the wrong way down a dual carriageway with no lights on at night to escape police has been given a year's youth custody.

Connor Carl Bather, 20, had earlier assaulted a stranger at a petrol station in Flintshire and later hit a police officer who called at his home.

Mr Wilson said Bather had had been having a bad week, had various problems and "the wheel certainly came off that night".

it seems like most of these can be classified as (1) non-native English speaker hypercorrects his grammar in attempt to appear fluent (2) native English speaker hypercorrects his grammar in an attempt to appear erudite (3) underinformed reporter/clerk/historian bungles the past perfect tense in an attempt to hide the fact that he doesn't really know when an event occurred or for how long (4) internet person makes a simple typo and would have used better phrasing if he would have had been bothered to review his post before hitting submit. I guess this Phil McNulty guy falls into categories 2 and 3?

This male was known as Yoshito Daisuke and the room he was placed within was probably the coldest room throughout the entire building itself. If anything were to had been thrown into the room, the sudden contact with any single surface would cause the object to instantly turn to solid ice on the floor. The reason the male was still able to sit there and shiver from the intense cold was due to him being the phoenix.

Fortuitously, the home Dave bought years ago is one story and just two steps above street level; unfortunately, it had small rooms, narrow hallways, and tight corners. An architect from a nearby community who had experienced temporary paralysis volunteered his expertise in creating a new floor plan with a more open design. The weekend after the accident, when Marcella's baby shower was to have had been held, friends and relatives were packing all the couple's belongings and moving them to the storage facility run by Marcella's oldest brother.
