    You just say the football has braille on it and whistles as it fly’s through the air.

    Shotguns have serious range limitations, any trap or skeet shooter can tell you that. Will only work at very low altitudes. I’m pretty decent at trap with my 870. Tried skeet, can’t rack the second round fast enough! LOL!

    You’d need a shotgun with a specialized flechet round to do the job at longer ranges. Largest bore rifle you could find would be best, something seriously supersonic. Then a near miss would do damage.

    Spellcheck wouldn’t catch the error, a grammar checker might. You should’ve asked for better proofreading, and almost all news sources these days are horrific at proof reading.

    A third grade English teacher should be employed to walk around and whack knuckles of the offenders…

    The traditional roles are actually making a comeback. However, both sides of that role need to be governed by ethics and morality.

    Feminists use the ‘traditional role’ as cover for their attacks. They retreat to the safety of being a ‘woman’ and being unassailable by ‘men’. It’s immoral to do this, so I’m glad we have women like Dana L., Ann C., and Greta S. to knock them on their pins when they retreat.

    Men like to use the Bible or Quran or other justifications to dominate and ‘rule’ over women. This is wrong, and also immoral. The Bible is clear that a husband is responsible FOR and TO his wife, they are not justified in domination. They are partners. Eve was NOT subservient to Adam. He chose to be with her after her mistake in the garden. That clearly demonstrates love and self sacrifice which is what husbands should do for their wives. Any other interpretation of scripture is self gratifying drivel. Do not do anything but love and respect women, Eve’s choice made their lives harder but it was actually a wise choice and gave us the chance to be here. Respect it.

    Kids have a way of being kids. I have a 3 year old and we have to watch him like a hawk. Lucky for us, the design of our home puts him in a rear bedroom that he has to go past us to get to anything dangerous. He does have a habit of falling off the ladder to the upper bunk (which he is not allowed to climb but does so anyway).

    You can only watch and teach. The key word there is watch. Mom blew it, but she is human and you have no idea what was going on in her life at that time. She could still be a ‘good’ mom, it happens to the best of them. So, I’m with Mike, I’m going to reserve judgement.

    Good job on the rescue, amazing the kid could fit in there!

    He clearly pulled the trigger. The casing clearly ejected. Wether or not there was a bullet is another question. The casing looks a little short for a real round but it could’ve been a lower powered round.

    Certanly guilty of being a dufus and smartless. He will be a future Darwin Award winner, at least odds are high.

    You guys shouldn’t even give JRook’s argument the time of day. It’s flawed at the most basic analysis level and based on a ‘fixed pie’ setup of economic outlook, the most flawed economic outlook ever made. Even from the days of Adam Smith they understood the fallacy of a set concept of wealth distribution (ie: in order for someone to get richer, others must get poorer). While the entire class warfare system worshipped by the left is built on it, it’s an easy argument to shoot down. Please let stop giving time to this kindergartner level of argument.

    There are points when his posture and the ‘trees’ jump. They are slight but noticeable. They may just be encoding artifacts. Also, there is almost no hesitation in the movement of the circles which even the best talents of this type have a hard time pulling off. Like I said originally, great hands, a few edits.

    Never assume a lack of CG effects. Unless I actually watch an original editing job with raw footage, CG can always be inserted without anyone the wiser. It takes professional analysis of the pixels to determine fakes these days. CG refers to any video manipulation from filters to NLE effects/tricks.

    Shadows can easily be CG cast based on a mask of the subject and an ‘apparent’ light source aid, you only need the original edited footage. I do this in Photoshop on stills all the time. Any of the professional level effects packages can do this, even some of the pro-sumer level ones.

    It did look like stop motion animation in a few places didn’t it… Whole thing could be CG as well…

    If the owner of the property didn’t ask for the ‘art’ to be applied, it’s vandalism.

    I watched a pro-graffiti ‘documentary’ (word usedly lightly) and their justifications for tagging, graffiti, and ‘public art’. All I saw was some people complaining about not liking the ‘look’ someone chose for their property so they felt justified in applying their own ‘look’ to it even though they didn’t own the property.

    With that logic I could stop them, strip them out of their clothes and put them in a clown suit because, well, I think it suits their ‘look’ to match their antics.

    Very smartless people out there.

    Actually Mick… your posts make his point. With all the CAPS and !!!!!’s it demonstrates a lack of respectful civil discourse.

    All you had to say was “I don’t see how those words he claims are insults, are actually insults”. That is clear, concise and civil.

    Getting a little sarcastically ‘uncivilized’, “THOSE WORDS ARE UNCIVIL WHEN USED WITH DERISION AND VENOM WITHIN A NASTY CONTEXT YOU CONSERVATIVE YOKEL!!!!”

    Oh, wait, was that insulting? I think you get the point that they can be used in insulting manners. Cut the guy some slack for asking everyone to be nice.

    Thus his comments on the Establishment. He’s actually part of the Establishment.

    I respect his opinion highly but his thinking is far too victory based and not enough principle based. He talks good principles then turns around and puts his actions behind victory concepts (The modern Republican Establishment Theories).

    He stated great things but then undermined it entirely with his “What Establishment?” comments. The Modern Republican Establishment is appeasement of the DNC voting class in an effort to look like them, even though NOBODY in that class will vote Republican. It’s a losing formula but one George Will has signed entirely on to.

    The Tea Party exists as Anathema to Establishment on both sides of the aisle, it is NOT a Republican organ.

    While his view on immigration is very realistic, it is not principle based. I’m okay with them staying here as long as their ‘citizenship’ dreams are pushed back behind those that are on the waiting lists. When all of them are allowed in and on the path to citizenship then those here illegally can be put on the path. That’s principle based and fair. Until then, they should just be given work visas, but their citizen allowance clock doesn’t start until everyone that is doing it the right way has their shot.

    You mean like the self-control you exercised in countering your need to insult others with the post?

    The OP made a real comment, we are over sensitive, this is true. Now you take it one step beyond, like the progressive leftists, and turn it into a personal issue that needs to be addressed- belittling another over their ‘self-control’ issues.

    People in glass houses should not throw stones.

    More appropriate commentary might have been, “I can understand the struggle she must be going through, at least she’s trying to address her issues and something like this happens. That kind of thing can crush someone working on weight issues. We should all examine our actions and try to be kinder to others, understanding their struggles are not something for us to make light of, especially in a society that is over indulging in everything these days”.

    It makes the same point but doesn’t degrade anyone, it also doesn’t elevate yourself at the expense of another, and we can’t see your weight or examine your life either to find your self-control issues beyond the self important postings. In my book posts like this are no better than the young man that wrote the derogatory comment on the box.

    By the way, just about everyone could stand to be healthier, myself included, and I workout regularly.

    The kid was wild and slashing, the gun equivalent is randomly firing around. This is why there are no deaths so far.

    Had the kid wanted to kill, he would’ve finished all the ‘down’ victims with a slash to the throat or a dozen other vulnerable spots.

    The real point here is that if someone wants to go off the edge, you can’t really do much in the first minutes unless someone nearby is armed. It’s an argument for armed staff on campus.

    I’m ticked off that we are still reporting the names of these maniacs. Stop giving them press time. Report the event factually, and step away from it. Give a follow up report in 3 months and one more at a year. Final report at sentencing. That should be the formula. Some of these school incidents would stop if the perpetrator(s) didn’t get name level press coverage.

    Blink-Zap-

    Freedom of Speech-
    By your approving comments, you are endorsing the decision to ban the Stars and Bars, thus advocating restricting speech rights on public property. This concept that schools can have zones where freedom of speech is allowed is a modern thing and anathema to what education and open debate should be. You did bring it up, not explicitly, implicitly.

    Homosexual Opression-
    The LGBT can be argued to have been culturally opressed, with laws that forbade certain activities on their part. Those laws are no longer on the books. Now the LGBT community is out for blood and revenge trying to pass laws to oppress other classes they percieved had hurt them. That is is morally/ethically flawed. Businesses have the right to refuse service to anyone- period, that is freedom. If you don’t like the business, don’t use it. It’s called a boycott. It is evil to use force to quash freedom of ethical business.

    History Lesson-
    The NORTH was the oppressor in the Civil War, and I’m not a southerner. By taking away slavery and not replacing it with a system that supported some kind of equalizing factor to replace the lost labor caused the Southern states to revolt. It was a form of economic terrorism that would’ve (and did) leave the South in poverty for a century. This was the dilemma our Founders faced and they couldn’t find a good solution either!

    I disagree with your definition of hypocrisy. In order to be a hypocrite, you must intellectually understand and reject the duality of your position in favor of keeping it because it satifies some other personal motive. If you do not, you are just ignorant of your own duality (Definition: See Politician).

    As she states, the majority of Founding Fathers UNDERSTOOD their plight and position, as well as that of their slaves. They had 100% knowledge of the environment in which they lived- we do not, we can only make guesses as to that environment based on writings from the period, we don’t have iPhone recorded video of the Constitutional Conventions and Congress!

    To imply hypocrisy is to fail to understand the basic tenet of being a student of history: It is perception of the past through the lens of your own existence. You are bringing your own filtered down views, your own experiences to the table to interpret the Founders. That is the authors point, and her counter point to that ‘hypocrisy’ position demonstrates that more than one viewpoint is salient on the matter, thus casting aspersions is actually counter productive to the investigation of history.

    We will never know with assurity that a given Founder was a hypocrite or not. We can extrapolate that in the case of several, they put everything they had on the line to create a new nation and tried to abolish the practice. That’s enough for me to honor them.

    (Original post got put at root level, this is where it was supposed to be.)

    Freedom of speech vs. Perception of Oppression / Offense

    Is it possible to support a historic past without supporting even the bad side of things?

    So by flying an American Flag am I supporting the conquest of the Indian Nations and Mexican Territories? Am I supporting Japanese in internment camps? Am I supporting the current Socialist/Progressive/Communist/Fascist takeover of my country?

    By the logic of the Stars and Bars equalling support of slavery, I guess I’d have to be.

    The major cloud app providers should not be using OpenSSL, if they are, they get what they paid for, security wise.

    I am not a fan of Open Source for this reason. Too easy to find exploits because you are working from the code out.

    Sorry, this was supposed to be in response to BlinkKnight’s logic. Created double post.
