I think it’s just you get to vote for whoever you want in order of preference and if your number one guy has no hope at all, he’s eliminated and your number 1 vote doesn’t count but instead your number 2 vote does. The way you described it initially I think you inverted who gets eliminated. If anything, preferential voting (or ranked choice voting if you prefer) actually tends to solidify support for the two major parties (or at least I read that once but can’t find the reference now).
This is crystal clear . . .
If no candidate receives more than 50% of first-choice votes, the last-place candidate is eliminated. If your first choice is eliminated, your next choice will be counted, and so on. The process of elimination continues until there is a winner.
A man was killed, and a woman was critically injured in a shooting Saturday night in Humboldt Park. There has been crickets in the media about this possible hate crime. The shooting took place as people were leaving Chicago’s 43rd Annual Puerto Rican People’s Day Parade, which people from all over...

I wish there was more info on the links between cannabis use and Islamic terrorism. He’s a bit of a nob, but Peter Hitchens makes a compelling case that many of the British-born terror attacks of the last 20 years have involved cannabis
Well, if true, that’s something I never would have guessed. I thought weed was supposed to make people chill the fuck out, not want to blow shit up.
I think it’s more sustained, habitual use leads to psychological issues that can then tilt the person towards extreme views or make them more likely to be radicalised
Correlation, causation, etc.
Oh shut up your nerd! Why do you always have to get in the way of a nice baseless generalization?
Oh do behave. I never presented it as a fully considered theory, in fact I started the comment saying how it might be investigated more. If I wanted dickhead misrepresentation I’d spend more time at the Other Place
Hey! Are you suggesting we can be out Dickheaded?!
I’ve seen better dickheading in a primary school than I see on display here, it’s like you’re not even trying to be dickheads! Apart from that Zeppelin guy
That statement seems kind Pedogatorish
My kids are in primary school, there’s a lot of dickhead behaviour on display
House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., had some fiery words for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi while speaking at the Faith and Freedom Coalition, accusing her of thwarting efforts to investigate the truth origins of the COVID-19 pandemic.
2.0 out of 5 stars A fun way to ruin a weekend and blow 100 bucks.

We took this ball to the beach and after close to 2 hours to pump it up, we pushed it around for about 10 fun filled minutes. That was when the wind picked it up and sent it huddling down the beach at about 40 knots. It destroyed everything in its path. Children screamed in terror at the giant inflatable monster that crushed their sand castles. Grown men were knocked down trying to save their families. The faster we chased it, the faster it rolled. It was like it was mocking us. Eventually, we had to stop running after it because its path of injury and destruction was going to cost us a fortune in legal fees. Rumor has it that it can still be seen stalking innocent families on the Florida panhandle. We lost it in South Carolina, so there is something to be said about its durability.
We blew this up in our backyard and it is as large as it is advertised. You don’t really appreciate just how large a 12 ft beach ball is until it is rolling like crazy across the backyard, bowling over small children and getting launched up into the air. Do not buy if you live anywhere that might be described as “windy” or “gusty” or even “just a little breezy”. Light enough to reach “Holy God! Where’s it going to land?” altitudes. A 12ft beach ball can destroy a lot of potato salad, let me tell you!
4.0 out of 5 stars STOP, DROP, and let it ROLL

i also have one of these and yes, windy days will make this product difficult to control, but if there is no wind, it’s awsome. I agree that 20 minutes sounds correct to inflate, Although there was an instruction that came with it to blow it up by mouth, which i thought was a joke. there should also be better warnings with it as it can be dangerous. in my excitement with blowing it up for my niece and nephews (ages:3,7,8,10) i started things off by rolling it right a my 3 yo nephew and the weight of it knocked him right on his ass (crying ensued). then we realized that you CANNOT try to run away from it as it will trip up your feet and then face slam you into the ground (no matter how big you are). i never really thought about how heavy and dangerous a 12 ft beach ball can be. so if you are ever chased by a 12 ft beach ball, then just STOP, DROP, and let it ROLL right on over you. unfortunately learning this on your one can be a bit painful. once we all learned our lesson, it was AWESOME! i surely recomend this product, just follow my advice.
