This is exactly why Tucker won't host the Party. @oneshot86 on the other hand, that crazy bastard will hook us up and he's gotta Food, Beer, n Ciggy's place right next door. :giggle:
As well as an on-premise range, badass stocked bass pond, tons of man toys, and a great buddy that shows up in the middle of the night with pyrotechnics. I can vouch for the comfort of pine straw mattresses and the tolerance of his wife for foreign invaders.

I start welding school at the end of the month, but do the get together on a weekend and I'll drive down and help with the cookin.

OK you guys, you've had your fun. As far as I'm concerned, you really haven't achieved much of anything.

Oh, yes, you've pitched your hostility at me for the best part of the week, and my character has probably taken a few hits. You are neither the first, nor the worst. One does not survive here at The Hide for 17 years and some without catching a few dings and scratches. But I'm still here, and you are not going to change that.

Let me point out a few things. Nobody has talked about banning anybody but you guys. Not one word on that from me, not even to the Mods. Yes I've talked to the mods, but essentially to point out where the discourse had become downright disgusting, and that apparently that was just fine with them. Does that sound like any kind of an approach that's likely to gain me any cooperation whatsoever from the Mods?

I. Don't. Think. So.

You say I'm a bully who gets people thrown off The 'Hide. In case you haven't noticed, the only power I have on this site, have ever had on this site, is the power of persuasion. Not one single member of this site does my bidding. So basically that claim of yours is full of holes, and maybe something else, too.

You may also notice that I have made no effort whatsoever to refute you childish accusations, or to counter your attacks with any of my own. That would be wildly inappropriate. I flatly refuse to grant your accusations and attacks any credence, because they do not deserve any.

And now, you squirm and shirk your catching you own reputations and characters in your own zippers. Suddenly I am supposedly, jokingly, being likened to a Jedi Mid Master. You give me far too much credit. I'm not that smart.

But I don't need to be. You spun your own trap, and all I did was to pick up the idea from you guys yourselves.

Yes, a played a con on you. No, I did not pull it out of thin air; you simply made it all too difficult to turn away from.

My Op Ed started out straight and serious. Everything I said in the first few posts was on the level, and IMHO, it makes all the sense it needs to make. It was an unpopular line of thinking, I knew that, as I have done here many times in the past. I expected disagreement, and made a few explanations to see if common ground could be established.

But then, you guys went nuclear, making the topic thread into your own little gladiatorial arena. You made it personal, and you made it just about as disgusting and unreasonable as you could manage. If there were any lines of reasonable discussion and argument in your chosen arena, you stepped way over them. And then you stated playing "Top This".

People's character and reputations are not up for grabs here. They are not toys for you to toss around and stomp on.

So that's when I decided it was time to put you all up front and center on your own little pedestals and allow you yourselves to do whatever disgusting outrages any reasonable judgement and consequences might do an accounting of.

So here's the con.

First, never, ever step outside of character.

Next, never solicit a mark, they will come to you of their own accord.

Always throw them the occasional bone, in this case squirm and whine, give some vague hint that they are getting just what they want.

When they have the bait in their mouths, do a switch-up or two, to see if the hook is actually set yet.

When it is set, poke fun at them, tell them exactly what is being done to them, and who's doing it (yourselves).

Let them run with the line, see how far they will go to commit themselves to their own destruction.

When they finally get bold enough to brag and point at themselves (Look at US!!!), tell them point blank just how badly they took the bait.

When they go into denial, leave them completely alone to stew in their own jusics, and to dig their own graves fully 6 feet deep.

Now you can twist and turn and say it isn't so. Maybe somebody cares, but I sure don't.

I don't want a Goddamn thing from you. I don't need anything you've got.

I know precisely who and what I am, and none of your party games will ever change any part of that.

I make no requests of anyone else. They make up their own minds, and treat this as they choose.

Game over. You lost.

Gregory W. Langelius.

True to form, in denial. Keep digging. Have you actually been carrying that same tired old grudge for 15 years? Now that's amazing.

Somebody's being pathetic. Everybody gets to choose who.

All anybody needs to do is to just read it all back, hold it up against the explanation, and make their own minds up. Except that won't work for you, your mind's been made up since you kicked this one off, all on your own.

Don't expect a lot of response on this, my part of this little discussion is over.

You started the shit, then flopped, then flopped again, then flopped again, then I/we lost count of your flopps.
You were trained by cnn an msnbc right? Must be tough waking up an not knowing what the truth is? You could ask your handlers, but they appear to that left the building after checking out your past antics on here. You going to whine for Frank or the other mods now, that I am treating you like shit. Just because you say it over an over never makes it the truth, no matter what your handlers told you!

But, but, but,.............but what if the explanation is Bullshit? LMFAO Stop, please. This was going to die it's rightful death probably today, until you had to give it a great big dose of Narcan. Way to go Jimmy. :sneaky: Now let that sink in, then get back to us on just how much more you're not going to fan your own fire. (y)

Jimmy has been sitting in the shitter for a while now. Is it that he likes the smell of his own shit that much?

Greg, seriously, just admit that you've got some apologies to make and some personal defects to correct, and then come up for air.

This is the most embarrassing display by a grown man that I've ever seen on here in ten years, and I've seen some shit.

Good luck with welding school . Bit of advice . Always carry a tube of sunblock like 50 spf . When you don't have or its two hot for sleeves or a jacket it'll keep the flash burn away .

You think you deserve an apology, 1J? What unmitigated gall.

F*ck off!

If anyone owes you an apology, it is you yourself. You and your pals brought this all on yourselves. I posted a viewpoint, you took it all from there.

I treated all you as a gentleman would; not sorry at all about your collective butt hurt.

If you don't have the courage to admit your own contribution, that's your problem. I really don't give a care about how you handle your mess.

Now, I have some volunteer work to get done at the VFW; so you bunch can have the rest of your embarassment/fuckup all to yourselves.

This is just all so done.

Greg

Gregory, please. You've got me confused with someone else, again. I never asked for an apology. I don't require it nor expect it. Your personal attacks just aren't doing it for me. I think I'll saunter down the corridor and speak with some of the local professionals. At least they can keep their story straight.

PS: I gave you another like because you almost completely spelled out *The "F" Word*.

Aaaaaand here it comes in 3..........2........

Thanks man, that's great advice I wish I'd had years ago when I took the skin off the insides of my arms welding for a couple of days in South LA in the summer when long sleeves were "too hot". I was a damn dummy for not thinking of sun screen.

It sounds like at this school, which will run through the full summer, we're required to have long sleeves every day to even be allowed in the building much less the shop floor. It's a shame that the new moisture wicking fabrics also melt like plastic wrap.

I guess the "good" news is that welding is just plain hot, regardless, so not much to be done about it.



Normally I'd refrain from derailing a thread, but this on seems like it can benefit from as many distractions as possible.

I have some similar shirts for fishing, but I don't think I'd ever get near welding or cutting while wearing it, even with appropriate outer wear.
Real good judgment call there. Do not wear ANY under armour around welding or cutting. Hurts like a motherfucker burning in... btdt...

The best stuff often happens during/after the derail.

Face it, most gun-related stuff is same old same old because there have been huge bucks and brilliant minds behind the effort to make a better killing machine for so long that advancements are now incremental. How can a ballistician trying to wring out a few tenths of a percent of BC advantage compete with the dollars being poured into drones?

Can we have an ELR drone comp? What do we shoot, the fucking moon?

The hardest part of gun talk to me is that we're constantly subjected to new dumbasses that think they have original thought about 2a.
