I know I've had this discussion, either here on at The Other Place, about what constitutes a "truck". In Australia you don't call it a truck if you can drive it with a regular Class C driver's license, which covers vehicles up to 4.5 tonnes GVM (~5 tons American).

That there is a truck.

From the Laïque Pride rally in Beirut, Lebanon.

Lebanon has quite an active secular movement that among other things works against the country's sectarian government framework.

Translation (not my own):

Girl: “Why did you come here tonight?”

Boy: “I think it’s going to get a lot better. I think the music is horrible, just horrible.”

G: “What genre?”
B: “Huh??”
G: “What genre?”
B: “Genre? Genre of what?”
G: “What genre of music is playing?”

Authorities in Tennessee are reviewing all pending cases involving a Knox County Sheriff's Office detective after he gave a sermon at his church that called for the government to execute members of the LGBTQ community.

"They are worthy of death," Grayson Fritts said in a June 2 sermon at All Scripture Baptist Church, a small church in Knoxville that he leads.

The church posted the sermon online and then removed it, according to The Washington Post. The video was picked up by the Tennessee Holler, an independent liberal news outlet, and edited into a six-minute clip
