    First it appears to still be the same game interface with a few new additions like skins for guns. CS was inherently weak gameplay compared to say the Quake 2 add on “Action Quake 2″. It was only popular because of the graphics and ad campaign.

    Second, I used to be ranked in the top 500 worldwide for a number of FPS games.

    The idea you can get paid for wasting time is insane.

    Here’s the fundamental problem from my POV as a pretty strict constructionist and atheist:

    The 1A says “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”.

    In my mind that means that the root of the problem is other unconstitutional actions taken by the federal gov’t outside of their enumerated powers. In this case creating the Dept. of Education and using it to fund local schools hence reaching federal fingers. Without the DOE there would be no case here because the States are not actually barred from such actions, only the feds are (as was the case until 1925).

    Now courts disagree with me on this, using the 14th A. incorporation doctrine, but I tend to find that wanting because they’ve been selective in it’s application, most notably (and conveniently) ignoring the 9th and 10th A.

    Personally I find the FFR arguments on this topic to be generally weak, mainly because their wishes only apply the first part of the 1A on religion and conveniently ignore the part that says “prohibiting the free exercise thereof” which is in effect what they’re doing.

    The school isn’t forcing the creation of a chaplainship, they’re allowing it (allowing free exercise). If the students want to create a team Imam, Chaplain and Rabbi, they should be free to do so.

    If it’s their preference to have one over the other they should do so until the opinion OF THE TEAM changes.

    It means you engaged in sexual activity with someone’s significant other (or the person they’re interested in) before they did.

    It’s similar to saying “You know that think your girlfriend does with her tongue? I taught her that”.

    Others have properly pointed out the popularity of “swatting” in certain online gaming communities, but I think there were two major crimes being committed here.

    First, who gets paid to play video games or was this guy just screwing off on company time?

    Second, Who plays CounterStrike anymore? That game was cool back in 2000 and while the graphics and physics engines have been updated the game play itself is a crime against humanity these days.

    Finally, did anyone else find it amusingly ironic that the match ended just as they were asking him what he thought was funny and standing him up? The game announcing “Terrorists Win!” seemed shockingly appropriate.

    Seems like a few rounds of nine pellet 00 would have done the job nicely in this case.

  • August 27, 2014 at 9:46pm

    Almost forgot to cite my source there.

    Contains the information you state as well as a large section of the official police report.

    I would argue that the school officials should have done their due diligence before making any moves. Doing such would have avoided this unpleasantness.

    Further, as I previously quoted from the Police Report: “While administrators, Officer Floyd, and I looked for the suspect, all students were held in their homeroom classes until the suspect was located, bookbag located, and locker was cleared with negative results for a weapon The suspect was escorted to Mr. Giet’s office by Officer Floyd and myself. Mr. Giet asked the suspect about the comment written on the assignment”

    Based on the police report itself, it’s clear that the only people “disturbed” were the people in the office in which this took place. School was NOT disrupted by anyone other than the cops which put the school in a lockdown.

    I’m not saying the lockdown was inappropriate, but the idea that this kid flying off the handle in a private office caused more “disturbance” to the school than the cops shutting everything down while going on a wild goose chase is ludicrous.

  • August 27, 2014 at 9:40pm

    100% agree. Well said.

    While school officials may be overzealous with kids who don’t deserve it cursing at them or making a scene only make the whole situation worse.

    Have you considered moving your NFA toys to a Trust?

    Just curious, personally I prefer it but I know many don’t.

    Try living in a State like Ohio while in school, driving a car with a border State tag and driving on I-70 (a MAJOR drug corridor) as the lone occupant of a car. You’re gonna get pulled over for nothing. It’s called “fishing”, something cops do when they have nothing better to do (bored). When they don’t find a reason to search your car they make up an excuse as to why they pulled you over.


    It’s hilarious that you call me an idiot when your posts openly reveal that you’re the idiot. At no time did I ever mention a brake light.

    Further, your statement suggests that you believe that tail lights run off magical pixie dust rather than electricity, have never actually seen a light bulb, you believe that tail lights are on at all times and defy physics by never burning out and that you believe that since a light turned on last time it will do so forever.

    When you turn on your headlights, your tail lights come on. Due to the fact that tungsten is subliming all over the the filament and not being evenly replaced, at a certain point applying current causes the filament to fail, “burning out” the bulb. This happens to all incandescent bulbs and it is virtually impossible to predict exactly which application of current will cause the filament to fail.

    In short, pull your head out of your rear and stop being a jerk for no reason other than that you’re too stupid to understand basic physics or electronics.

    Don’t report me for a fight you start either.

    Oh yeah, Habana I almost forgot something.

    I have some homework for you.

    Learn to read, not just insert whatever the heck you want into what others have said and then attack them for it.

    LeapFrog Reader, First Little Readers Book and Hooked on Phonics all get good reviews on Amazon.

    You can tell their bored when the reason they give for pulling you over is a law that doesn’t exist like “Your tailpipe isn’t stock”. Not “We have rules on the noise your car can emit and your tailpipe is too loud”. Or “You were tailgating” when the only other car on the road is THEM and they’re behind you.

    No they’re pulling me over for having a chrome tip on the tailpipe and having New Mexico tags on the car near a highway known for drug trafficking. That means they have nothing better to do than shake your tree and see if anything falls out. Which means they’re BORED.

    As for the tail light, lights do this thing called “burning out when current is applied” (that means you turn them on) even if you check them it’s not impossible for them burn out when you turn on your lights while driving later. Pray tell, do you believe incandescent bulbs burn out when not in use?

    Oh, and I check them weekly, because doing routine inspections on a vehicle to which you trust you life is insane.

    Your use of insults and snide comments for no reason shows you to lack both intelligence and class. Jack@ss.

    He’ll get pulled over eventually again whether or not he’s speeding.

    The times I’ve been pulled over were mostly because the cops were bored or telling me I had a tail light out.

    I figure it’s par for the course when dealing with any sort of government agency.

    They’ll CYA themselves to Kingdom Come, but you’re just a serf so if you have to be railroaded for the greater good…

    Something about a fox and a hen house…?

  • August 27, 2014 at 2:53pm


    From your comment I sort of figured you were a southpaw, but I didn’t want to say that and then look like an idiot when you had some other perfectly reasonable explanation I hadn’t thought of.

  • [14] August 27, 2014 at 2:48pm

    You felt uncomfortable during a traffic stop? There’s a support group for that called “everyone”.

    Being pulled over sucks, but it happens. Suck it up and move on.

    On another note; funny how they can dig up dash cam footage from over a year back when it exonerates the cop, but when a defendant claims said footage will exonerate them it mysteriously disappears.

    I don’t know who Mr. Whitehead is, but parts of this he seems to take too far.

    The stories are conflicting on Alex Stone and I wasn’t in the office when he was questioned and allegedly became “irate”, so I have no idea if he deserved to be suspended and arrested for his actions or not.

    What I do know is that the school administrators clearly escalated this far beyond what was necessary by immediately involving the police in the matter.

    I know this sort of thing all too well.

    I was suspended my junior year of high school because I was a T.A. for the art teacher. One of the young kids in the class didn’t like being told to behave, so he went to the middle school counselor after class and accused me of “getting high on pot” in the art room.

    The school didn’t care if it was true or not.

    I was called to the principal’s office, where he and a cop had already gone through the contents of my locker and spread them all over the office floor looking for drugs.

    I was then grilled by both men, my person was searched and I was “detained” in handcuffs until they bullied me into a urinalysis that came back negative.

    No drugs were found, nor other witnesses found nor any evidence produced that I had EVER smoked marijuana. I was suspended for three days nonetheless solely on the basis that I had been accused.

    The kid didn’t get in any trouble.

    This was in 2001. That’s the sort of way school administrators react to ANYTHING post Columbine.

  • [6] August 27, 2014 at 2:21pm

    The information I find on Alex Stone indicates that the police report says he became “irate” after having his belongings and locker searched and being interrogated by school officials and police repeatedly. According to himself, he did not become “irate” until he was questioned repeatedly about the same topic.

    I’m not going to lie here; if I had to spend an hour of my life explaining why I wasn’t a threat after writing a creative piece on killing my neighbors obnoxious dinosaur, I’d probably be pretty “irate” too.

    Further, he was not disrupting the school as you suggest, he was in a private office being questioned by cops and school administrators. ” The suspect was escorted to Mr. Giet’s office by Officer Floyd and myself. Mr. Giet asked the suspect about the comment written on the assignment…”

    This seems like something that could have easily been handled without the cops by having the principal have a 10 minute conversation with the kid and give him a friendly reminder not to mention guns in school again because people freak out.

    You don’t need a Class III dealers licence, but in the short term that might make your life easier if you plan on having a large collection of NFA items.

    All you need is a tax stamp. When you fill out a Form 4 (ATF F 5320.4) you put down your information (or that of your NFA Trust) the specifics on the Class III item you’re purchasing (type, serial number, caliber, length etc).

    When the BATFE approves you they’ll send you back a copy of your completed Form 4 with a ink stamp on it. That’s your tax stamp. You and the people in your NFA Trust (if you used one) are now legally allowed to possess and use the Class III item you purchased as long as you do so in compliance with all applicable law.

    All that said, there are State rules on this as well. For example there are 6 States that do not allow a silencer and 8 that do not allow machineguns.

    Not only are State laws different but moving any of these things requires paperwork.

    However, just moving from one apartment to another or a house across town requires an ATF F 5320.20 (Application to Transport Interstate or to Temporarily Export Certain National Firearms Act (NFA) Firearms) for each Class III item that you own.

    I think the real question is why they have “standards” on such an esoteric topic.

    Does ESPN have standards they’ve set in reporting on slime mold growing the the North East corner of shower facilities when said facilities are related to sports?
