My Sudden Trip to Hell
- By the time I landed in New York that day in February, I felt a flu coming on.
- Time passes differently in that state.it can seem to the patient like weeks or months have passed when it’s merely been days.
- I pushed out a few words, the kind of words you actually hear in movies but never expect to say yourself: “am I going to walk again?” My wife sat next to me as I asked the question to the room filled with medical staff.

Colin Kaepernick reveals what led him to risk his career kneeling for social justice
- That was December 2, 2015, nine months before Kaepernick infamously chose to sit during the "Star-Spangled Banner" ahead of his San Francisco 49ers taking the field.
- The protest later evolved into kneeling after onetime Seattle Seahawk and Green Beret Nate Boyer convinced Kaepernick it would be more respectful to the nation's military, the ex-quarterback has said.
- Woods' killing in San Francisco's Bayview neighborhood set off months of protests.
- Critics of the police response said Woods was too far away from officers to present a legitimate threat of injury or death.

In 897, the corpse of a pope was exhumed—to be put on trial.
- He had then headed to Rome to force Pope Stephen V to crown him Holy Roman Emperor.
- Formosus, however, distrusting the new emperor and King of Italy, began to resume diplomatic ties with Arnulf of Carinthia, inviting him to confront Guy in Italy.

- In early 897, Pope Stephen VI and Lambert ordered that Formosus’s corpse be disinterred and brought to San Giovanni in Laterano for the proceedings.

- Not strictly a git alias, but I have a bash alias gclone (repo) that clones the repo and cds into the directory.
