  1. In other news...

    That is often said but it doesn't necessarily work out that way.
  2. In other news...

    I'm trying not to. He's got his final appeal, and I don't think he's going to like the judge's ruling.
  3. The Incredibles 2

    This is actually the movie I have most been anticipating for many years.
  4. Staged does not necessarily mean false. A staged photo is one that was set up in advance rather than one was mocked up afterwards with Photoshop. So if she knew that they were going to take silly pictures, and it was arranged in advance that is staged edit; so much for definitions, sounds like the claim of the quote is completely fake which is a different issue.; I don't know the full truth in Franken's case, but he has apologized and called for an ethics investigation of himself. Moore has multiple accusers with many many people backing up their statements. Even if I didn't consider Moore s whack job and rather despicable, I would think that that was grounds for him to be stepping down from the race. One of the things that's interesting is the reconsideration of Clinton's actions in the past.
  5. The Incredibles 2

    I was kind of hoping it would turn out that Tony's the heir of a super, probably villain... chaos ensues Not that they couldn't throw that in there...

    Well I would want to at least a second maybe a third opinion, because one little thing I caught in it was the statement that after using antibiotics to combat diseases for centuries... But we've only had them since the World War II era. Maybe I'm just too picky

    I'm really surprised that at least appears they've done it without major violence. I always figured Mugabe would be in power until he died of whatever causes. I hope that the military does not turn out to be as bad as it often does but the people are already used to dealing with one dictator so maybe it will actually be an improvement for them

    I fear that is a question that should be asked but probably will not. I wonder how much this kind of attitude has to do with the reports in the media the last couple weeks about a certain candidate?
  9. Cool Guns for your Games

    16" would be better for use, imo... but a pintle mount would handle the recoil better...
  10. I remember a discussion amongst us 12 year olds (terrifying creatures we were) when our mothers and sisters were terrified of the "south hill rapist" Kevin Coe. it involved deep fryers, as I recall.
  11. I grew up shooting competitively, from age 11, iirc. I fired many thousands of rounds of .22lr in smallbore rifle both indoor and outdoors, and some thousands of rounds of .308 in highpower rifle competition. later I did a little .22 pistol shooting. I shot in matches in 6 states, including the nationals twice, as well as one match in Australia, though it was a casual match. (Anzac day match outside Sydney. This was probably the most fun I ever had at a match. We performed a WWI style "walkdown" , and the only thing I have been involved in that was anything like it was the Military oriented "Infantry trophy" matches, also called "Rattle Battle" though they did not involve automatic fire. ) I have never known of an injury other than sunburn, heat exhaustion, or a rolled ankle from matches. back in the late 70s and early 80s, shooters were almost like a family. THere were no serious fears about theft, though we often had well over a thousand dollars (then year) of equipment left at our firing points. But then, school shootings were never discussed, afai remember, until the kid here in WA shot up his school.
  12. Glamorization of criminals: murderers, drug dealers, pimps, etc... is, imo, part of the problem. and yes, I include popular media glorification of vigilante behavior. Historically, there have been times when it was appropriate. Normally it was just one group killing another group they disliked.
  13. sounds more like an extension of the demonizing propaganda that has been aimed at gun owners for years...
  14. Cool Guns for your Games

    the muzzle blast and report on that would be ... uncomfortable. barrels that short, not my preference for 5.56. Now .300 blackout, or one of the pistol calibers... 7.62x25 might be fun...

    I have had to have a drug screen for my last several jobs... Insurance or banking support...
