Too bad Ralph Baksi never got to finish his LOTR film. That was trippy.

And I still prefer all the old Harryhausen flicks and things like 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Journey to the Center of the Earth, et al. to any of the newfangled stuff.

Old movies have an unmatched charm. Since the special effects were quite bad, they relied on good writing and acting. Today, that seems optional.

Back To The Future is the best sci-fi / fantasy movie series ever created. Thumbsup

Phantasm is my favorite horror series.

Hates ta say it buuuuut...

If that deer was in the south...it would already be in someone's pot or freezer...sorry, jus' sayin'

Deer are a nuisance animal in the northeast. Since killing all the wolves, the population exploded. Dad used to hunt them with his bow, and we'd have venison on occasion.

Huddled together, we pounded our chests and screamed the call of our tribe. We shook the trees to instill fear within the forest. Weapons and armor prepared, we painted symbols on our faces with the blood of the endangered wolf. Its ancestral spirit possessed our bodies. The hunt was on! Together we chanted, "Death to the deer! Kill the Bambi!"

Deer are a nuisance animal in the northeast. Since killing all the wolves, the population exploded. Dad used to hunt them with his bow, and we'd have venison on occasion.

Huddled together, we pounded our chests and shrilled the call of our tribe. We violently shook the trees. The branches rattled and loudly chattered, stirring birds into fearful flight, causing leaves to sporadically swirl around in the shaking wind, fluttering to the ground in shapes of chaos. The ambience of the forest emanated with fear and dread.

Arrows sharpened, bow strings tightened and armor reinforced for combat, we were prepared for victory. We painted each other's faces with terrifying and warlike symbols. Fear was our ultimate weapon. In sanctimonious ritual, we each took turns and drank from the sacred cup. It was filled with the blood of the endangered wolf. Its ancestral spirit possessed and imbued our bodies with the power of the predator - the power of sense, the power of skill, the power of the hunt.

Together we chanted, "Death to the deer!"

With the mystic force of the wolf's blood coursing through our veins, we could smell the scent of fear, see hidden shadows, hear the slightest whisper, and feel the fall of a distant feather landing softly upon the ground. The hunger consumed us. Our minds were filled with the inescapable craving for the kill, the desire for the tender flesh of prey, and the fresh blood of slayed life. We became the wolf.

How about if a package just isn't delivered correctly, who do you call?

Wall to wall, beach to wall, and beach to beach tourists. There needs to be a legal option where locals can choose to be cryogenically frozen in order to hibernate during the summer months.

Shelf the hurt ego and whining and put the dog on a leash.

I'm with Bob on this one. Off your property, use a leash or go to a designated leash free dog park. Too many dog owners think it's great to have their dog plow over little kids and shit on people's lawns.

Any other suggestions from you and BobBob on how to not get on people's wrong sides?

I already copped to being in the wrong.

Despite my “Internet Persona”, the person I am in real life is probably quite different. When it comes to dealing with people outside my own home I have a few basic principles or habits. I've developed these from fairly bad real life experiences.

Treat everyone as if they deserve a high amount of respect. Examples: Always smile and wave, open doors for ladies, and listen to men and women who think they are right, even if you disagree with them. I rarely ever say anything negative about a person or the surroundings to that person or to other strangers. Most people will would probably say I'm a nice person,

Never share personal information. I'll bet if you sat in a room of my acquaintances (neighbors, business partners, utility workers, customer service reps from grocery stores, parks, etc.), they might remember my first name (possibly last name), have a vague idea of where I live. They will simply say he's very polite and a good listener.

Live in a constant state of empathy. If you believe you might be both in the right, give the other person the right of way. Unless it's going to have an adverse affect on your life, money, or personal health or safety, there is no point in fighting for that parking space, right to turn, last piece of cake, etc. Constantly ask yourself, if I was my neighbor or that stranger, would I be annoyed with my behavior?

Always follow the laws and rules (mores) — no matter how stupid they seem to you. There are two reasons for this. The first is because most of the time the law was created to make people behave cooperatively in an uncertain environment. This goes for most rules and laws —- especially traffic safety or matters of conduct in the public space. The second is because if you follow the law, and there is a legal confrontation, you will always be in the right in a court of law. There is a third matter, if you believe the law is stupid, then advocate, write, or represent yourself and others at city council meetings or wherever the laws are written. Get involved in the civil process if you believe something is wrong. You might be surprised how many others feel the sameway and are simply waiting for someone with a strong enough voice to represent them.

Rarely argue with strangers, especially if it doesn't 'really' matter and will not make the other person happy. It's one thing to have an anonymous discussion out of principle, but it's never wise to get into a dispute with a stranger. The person might be crazy, carry a gun, follow you home, spread 'believable' gossip, or who knows what else. There is always someone crazier than you are. If the person becomes a nuisance never hesitate to call the police, but also never confront the person yourself —- unless it's a life or death situation —- or defending another human being in such a situation. There is no shame in calling the police no matter how petty you may consider the problem. They are being paid to intervene and protect you from crazies. It's your tax dollars at work.

So that's my philosophy on public living. I don't know if I addressed your question.

As to your current situation, since you never know if that guy is around, I suggest carrying a cell phone and be ready to record any confrontation. If he tries anything, hurry back home (or to a neighbor's house or a safe location) and call the police. If you believe he's still around, and might be a threat, take someone else with you so that you have witness.

In Eastern Europe the dogs run the streets. I was attacked by one. It's a scary place to be. You never know where a pack of dogs will be. Shelf the hurt ego and whining and put the dog on a leash. When people obey the laws we remain a civilized society.

I was just saying in another forum that growing up in the 90s in the suburbs everyone left their doors unlocked during the day if they were home. If you were a kid at the door you were seen as being obnoxious if you knocked or rang the doorbell, you were expected to just come right in.

If someone came to my house that I grew up in and just walked in, my mom (yes, I said mom) would have aimed a shotgun at the person. This was growing up in the Santa Barbara area. She worked for law enforcement agencies, so that might have been why.

You're the one that lives in California and hangs out at muscle beach so I thought it was your cup of tea. That aside there are plenty of septuagenarians out there that are more spry and in far better shape than the fat lazy youth of today. How much can you bench?

I don't like Venice Beach. It's too ghetto for my taste. The beaches I go to tend to be fairly empty or mainly full of locals.

I have no idea how much I bench. I don't lift weights. My legs are the strongest part of my body, besides my heart. An example of one of the roads I ride (not my video): http://youtu.be/56YNRJ47PY8

The fun part is going down the hills. Another video (again, not mine, and the music is annoying): http://youtu.be/PK1YHDy6oQs

82 year old bodybuilder Jim Arrington would disagree with you


I won't ask why you're watching male bodybuilder videos.
