    Motivational Pic Thread v2.0

    When I went through ground school prior to first static chord jump, the pilot of the plane told us all in no uncertain terms that once you go outside the plane, you will NOT be let back in as it it too dangerous, because if your chute pops while you are trying to get back inside, it could...

    European view of the NRA

    OK, so they produced what they believe to be a comedic and insulting attack on American gun owners. I suspect that they would howl about how horribly rude and insulting it would be if someone made a retort about how europeans lack of backbone has allowed them to be over run with immigrants...

    Faggotry on ice

    Having a DVR recording setup has made this olympics the most enjoyable winter games in a very long time. I can record everything, and fast forward past all the nonsense telling me about endless, uninteresting details about the competitors dog's fur, or their grandma's asthma and how that...

    The "trumpet" used by the rider on that motorbike looks suspiciously like a trombone. It is still pretty creative and funny though.

    A real good way to get shot

    Even though many of these videos are staged, I still find them entertaining. Some are really creative, and still funny, even if staged. They remind me of articles in the fake news paper called "the onion" that has lots of fake, but funny articles.

    Jeff's Dope, You have every right to be VERY proud of your son. Please let him know he was complimented on his singing skill, and his courage to get up there and sing.

    But It was SETTLED SCIENCE!!!

    You are absolutely correct. "Facts" seem to change over time. Some famous ones are: 1. The earth is flat. 2. The sun revolves around the earth. 3. Earth is at the center of the universe. 4. Mercury has lots of health benefits. 5. Bleeding people is the best way to deal with many health...

    WA state: possible new gun laws

    Would locking your front door qualify as locking the guns up, or does the law specify that they have to be in some kind of specially defined locking container such as a safe, gun case, etc? Finally read the proposed law..."or other secured storage space" is an exemption, so I would think that a...

    One more use for a ghillie suit

    I wore one on halloween many years ago. I just sat off to the side of our front door next to some yard debris. Every once in a while I would say something to the kids like "don't forget to say thank you", "give one to your brother", and other stuff like that. I didn't want to scare any kids...

    A real good way to get shot

    I think most of those pranks are staged and everyone is in on the "prank" in any case. Everyone who said it would be stupid to pull a prank like that on someone who wasn't in on it, as the prankster could very easily get shot. I remember one prank where a guy jumped up out of a trash can to...

    Are you Racist?

    Nope, not a one. I used to, but then changes in life and we all moved to different places too far apart. Now I live in an area that has very few people of other ethnicities. I'm too damned old to worry about what other people think off me...but I am interested in how they think. The...

    Are you Racist?

    I don't really GAF, I'm mostly curious about their level of insight, or the lack thereof. I suspect that either their insight is pretty low, or their pre-conceived notions will prevent them from any real introspection. I guess I'm just as guilty about pre-conceived notions though, because I...

    Are you Racist?

    I wonder if the ethnic groups that so vehemently hate whites, have even thought things through enough to wonder whether their hatred of whites is based on the race of whites, or the behavior of whites? It would be interesting to hear them discuss the issue, and see if they arrive at the...

    Are you Racist?

    Army-Jerry, Even the BLM folks are entitled to their opinion, if that is what you were asking. I'll be happy to listen to anyone's opinion as long as it doesn't become a long winded lecture that ends up with me being "preached at" rather than talked to. I am willing to have a civilized...

    Are you Racist?

    While it is interesting to read other peoples opinions, I sincerely doubt that this thread has changed anyone's opinion about race/racism. How people arrive at their opinions, and the logic (or lack thereof) used to arrive at those opinions is often of greater interest to me than the actual...

    Are you Racist?

    " environment and upbringing have'more to do with how a person turns out than any other factor". I am in complete agreement with this statement.

    Are you Racist?

    Maggot, You are absoutely correct.. There are other causative factors in nearly any decision. Race alone is seldom the reason for anyone's lousy situation. Some of those factors are obvious, some not so obvious. As you correctly point out, we cannot control everything in our environment. I...

    Are you Racist?

    I wonder how many people truly believe that the bad behavior of many blacks in the USA is caused solely by their genetics (race), or if there were/are other causative factors for that bad behavior. Is any good behavior also caused by race, or by other factors? If behavior that is found...
