  1. Charging

    Charging is a penalty in ice hockey. Rule 42 of the NHL rulebook dictates that charging "shall mean the actions of a player or goalkeeper who, as a result of distance traveled, shall violently check an opponent in any manner. A 'charge' may be the result of a check into the boards, into the goal frame or in open ice." The infraction may warrant any severity of penalty or combination of penalties as the officials deem fit, including a major plus a game misconduct, or suspension if the infraction results in injury to the opposing player. Any player who leaves their feet while delivering a body check is also found to be in violation of the charging rule and is subject to penalization.

    Women are the fulfilled sex. Through our children we are able to produce our own immortality, so we lack that divine restlessness which sends men charging off in pursuit of fortune or fame or an imagined Utopia.

The wholesome oyster wears no pearl, the healthy whale no ambergris, and as long as we can keep on adding to the race, we harbor a sort of health within ourselves.

  5. Ryan Pack:

    Statute of limitations: Once a crime happens its apart of history forever, it will never go away. Maybe memories fade, maybe witnesses die, maybe evidence gets lost, destroyed, tampered with, or expires but the crimes themselves never actually expire. Therefore they require justice. The only time there should ever be a limitation on charging a crime is if there's not enough truth, facts, and evidence to support it. You don't ever want to convict innocent people of crimes they never committed, you don't ever want to unjustly penalize people. As long as there's enough truth, facts and evidence to support the crime then just penalties should be administered to the appropriate people no matter if its been a 100 plus years since the crime took place. If there's no justice for the crime in life then justice is required for the crime in the afterlife. Either way it go's justice is required for the crime. You don't ever want guilty people getting away with crimes, whether it's in life or in the after life.
