Out of the Blue

After a few days using those belly belts to control the Gunnar-man's marking have been successful at keeping him from peeing on the stove, though it's not for lack of trying: Leaving him to his own devices results in a wet "diaper" every time. I'm hopeful that he will eventually grow weary of failing to mark the stove and/or walking around in a soggy belly belt, but so far that's not the case, and with his remarkable adaptability, this may never happen, but at least we have the mess under control for the moment, and that adaptability is showing through in just how little he is bothered by having to wear it.

Oh, here come the statistics. While you're at it, why not compare crime statistics in an armed country like the US e.g. with its neighbor Canada?

If a gun is at hand, it's logically more likely to be used. For self defense, or for shooting a cheating husband/wife. No gun, less likely a murder. Sure, stabbing, strangling, but that's up close, it's something that puts the people off. But from a distance, with a gun... Easier done. Result: more dead people. But again, you want the gun, keep it. As long as you can remember, that the gun in your hand in a turmoil will always be looked at as a possible threat by other people, no matter whether you would use it just to defend yourself. That's what you know, not the other people that just see a guy with a gun.

Consoles? I owned two: a Pong clone and an Atari 2600. And that's it.
