Airplane of Disgust Conversations are quiet through the airplane, the view outside is peaceful and sunny, and the air conditioners near the seats are at a comfortable temperature. I call to a curly-haired stewardess and ask for a bag of complimentary snacks. Moments later, I look up from my magazine to see this ridiculous lady smiling at me. Her makeup slightly resembles a clown that had just escaped from an insane asylum, with smudged red lipstick and shakily-drawn blue eyeliner. Her stewardess uniform has small pieces of paper with rude phrases printed on them stapled onto the edge of her blue and white skirt. One reads, “Unable-to-Give-an-Actual-Crap-Bear”, with a mean-looking Care Bear printed on the end. Okay??... I’m sure that violates at least one of the airplane’s dress code rules. She licks the ends of all her left-hand fingers before picking up a gray, steaming bowl from the cart beside her and handing it to me. Who does that?

Zakładnicy błyskawicznie uspokoili się i przyjęli uległe pozy, gdy tylko rozmowy na górze ucichły, a na schodach rozległy się kroki. Tamerlan nie wszedł do małego pokoju. Ruszył w kierunku końca sali. Kopnął od niechcenia rozwalonego laptopa, który leżał na jego ścieżce, w końcu zgiął nogę i oparł na niej swój ciężar o ścianę. Czterech pozostałych porywaczy stało bliżej schodów.
Depresja jest czwartym etapem godzenia się ze śmiercią. Tamerlan był w okropnym nastroju już na kilka dni przed akcją, ale możliwość odwrotu nie istniała. Decyzja została podjęta. Mało tego

Native to the Vale in the Disputed Land are the species Thyrs-Kobalos, commonly known as the Orqui. The Orqui class based culture divided the species into three classes. The Goblins, usually smaller and weaker, were peasants and serfs. The Orks, bigger than Goblins and just shorter than Humans, were strong and stout; a middle-class of merchants and warriors. The Ogres are the biggest and strongest of the Orqui, historically these were the tribal chieftains and kings of the Orqui.
Whilst Humanity was ripping itself apart between 5000 and 5983 HE, the Orqui tribes and petty kingdoms were slowly becoming more established and united. In 5983 the Bjorlg Empire started to send small bands of Orqui down into previously unexplored lands. (It should be noted that an Orqui ‘Empire’ at this time was nowhere near as big as what Humanity would consider an ‘empire’).This led to the mutual discovery of the two new species. However, the Orqui desired

Surprise!Toby brushed past the servants in the castle's halls without even glancing at them. Some were annoyed that he wasn't paying attention to where he was going but most ignored him in the same way he ignored them. Without really making the conscious choice to go there, Toby soon found himself in the castle's garage. The garage door was open and classical music was quietly playing on a stereo while Toby's twin brother, Marco, was just outside the garage washing the black bullet-proof Lexus Marco drove Princess Mary Emma in when they were going on a date or just wanted to get some time alone.

His eyes fell shut once more, opening again a split second later. He let out a weak groan yet again, and lifted his arm, planting his hand on the ground in front of his face and pushing.

The very street that she had walked many days earlier was gone. A few of the more fearful women sank to their knees and wept or pulled at their garments. Not her, she shielded her eyes with one hand, putting the other protectively over the burden she carried in secret. Not even her newly wedded husband knew yet. Six months married.

For some of them, you could see sweat trailing down from the pores of their foreheads to their chins before dripping down to the floor. If you didn’t know any better, you would have thought that these children were all lined up in order to get their hands on some priceless treasure or a delicacy that couldn’t be attained anywhere else. Well, you were right in your assumption. Half-right. A delicacy was the reason that these kids. But, only the kind that could cause a group of them to form a crowd in a school hallway.

These powerful locomotives were the road's favorite engines, besides the MCR's 4-8-4 Northerns. Even some of these engines were equipped with steam heaters for passenger service. When Ryan Lines bought all the Toon World's railroads, the H8s were sent all over Ryan Lines' vast verity of railroad lines, mainly from Los Angeles, California to Chama, New Mexico. In the 1950's, Toonville Shops built more H8s using blueprints from other 2-6-6-6s from the Virginian Railway and those engines were sent to Alaska for helper service.
