Just out of frame is a bike. It's not locked to anything, so it'd be the easiest to steal, but it might not be fast enough to get to the bomb in time, and it can't carry any passengers. But maybe the time saved in stealing it and the guarantee it won't need to stop for gas will make it the better choice?

seriouslyamerica:

I hate this idea that I’m supposed to meet my opponents in the middle. The middle of what?

Denying my trans friends their humanity?

Debating whether my mothers should have had the right to marry?

Whether my terminally ill neighbor should access healthcare?

Whether my black friends should have to fear for their lives just for existing in their own neighborhoods?

I’m supposed to compromise with people who would send an immigrant child back to certain death in their country of origin?

That’s not respect, or compromise. It’s fascism. It’s violence. And it’s abhorrent.

When you ask fascists to meet you in the middle, you compromise your morals for nothing.

My dad, the philosophy professor says: "Freud should not be invited to participate in Philosophy Jeopardy. 1) he's not a philosopher, 2) all his answers are stupid."

Even just for the first three frames this one is a winner. But... Do you even get to participate in final jeopardy if your score is negative?
