LA Cops Review
When talking about LA Cops, it's easy for me to spiral into a comparative discussion about how it doesn't hold up to Hotline Miami. It's unclear as to just how far and wide the sound of your shots travel, which may trigger one schmuck from off ...

Jost was born in Hesse, Germany on Feb 7, 1870, and died in St Louis, MO on June 9, 1954. He was married c. 1893 to Julia Meinhardt (b. Hesse, Germany May 24, 1871, died in St Louis, MO on August 11, 1932), and emigrated to America about the same... Henry and Julia had one child, a son named Louis William Jost (b. St Louis, MO on May 23, 1901, died in St. Louis, MO on February 15, 1940). Louis married in 1926 to Adah Wittkopf (b. St Louis, MO August 31, 1903, died in St. Louis, MO on June 12,... Henry is listed in the St Louis city directories by 1899 as a turner (and the 1900 census likewise describes him as a wood turner), but within a few years he is listed as a seller of umbrellas. One newspaper article from 1939 says Henry opened shop in 1892. Adah’s obituary, on the other hand, states that Henry opened his business in 1905, and that canes as well as umbrellas were sold. Certainly canes, umbrellas, and pipes all involved the turning of wood, and there is separate evidence that Henry learned these skills in Germany before coming to America. The precise date the shop open is probably impossible to ascertain, and in part depends on what we mean by a shop.
” I swivel the aircraft into position looking down the long concrete runway as if it were a highway that went on forever. My co-pilot looks over his shoulder at me, “ready Geoff. I’m throwen back in my seat as the two GE90 engines producing 230,600 pounds of thrust scream to life, shooting the Boeing 777-300 down the concrete airstrip. As the electronic numbers on the screen in front of me count up, shudders from the runway shake the aircraft like it was on a gravel road. Scattering my eyes all over the cockpit, all the instruments show normal operation so I pull back, giving the aircraft its last kiss of the ground until we touch down on the other side of the world. The back wheels on the 300 tonne aircraft leave the three kilometre runway and take to the sky. “That’s awfully unusual” chants my co-pilot Fredrick. Nothing more is said, so I hand the aircraft over the the autopilot to continue the next 14 hours of our journey. After 10 minutes, I leave Fredrick to watch over the aircraft while I head to the bathroom. The aircraft it heading straight down in vertical dive towards the stormy ocean below. There is a big shudder and Fredrick bangs his.
Series Rating: PG - NC-17. Main Character: Roy Mustang, Riza Hawkeye. Synopsis: Does Riza regret her part in the game. My own little private timeline. my own private little world. Yeah, and, just to add, my own little crackpot theories. Nothing else related to any episode of any kind, except the usage of the character(s) in question, though some events in some episodes will be used out of context as artistic license. I try not to make the events I use too spoilerish, but if I can’t help it, you’ll get a warning. Commentary is certainly welcome and tends to make me go “you like me. you really like me. ”. Each chapter is titled after a lyric in a song that was part of the soundtrack I have for this tale. Rating: R/M. Riza looked up at the clock, rubbing the crick out of her neck. Time to leave and run the dammed errands for her dammed Colonel. Whatever she’d been thinking the day before, today she knew this was not going to work between them. There was no way she could carry on day to day conversations with this man and not think about what he’d done to her last night.
