Out of the Blue

Well most of the preparations are in place for our influx of family and friends today. I completed all my chores and even whipped up a batch of especially buttery Chex Mix.

Not to be maudlin, but on the theme of the occasion, it bears pointing out that the habitu├ęs of this site are one of the things for which I am thankful when contemplating such things. Thank you all for all you do in making this little corner of the community what it is.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Isn't private gun ownership outlawed in the UK?
From a site I just saw earlier today "Violent crime in the U.K. rose 6 percent in the three months through September, led by an increase in alcohol-fueled offenses and gun crime, police figures show." Yeah, seems that outlawing guns really does the trick. Idiot.
If the figures showed similar (or worse) levels* of gun crime per capita between the UK and US, you would have a point. That there is gun crime in the UK, and that it is worsening, says nothing about wether the US or UK laws on guns is better, there is no comparative. The point would still be a little naive since it ignores contributing factors such as culture (general but especially gang), policing etc.

* taking into account severity, presumably actual shootings would be the best comparative.

He may or may not be an idiot, and outlawing guns in the US may or may not be a positive step forward, but your comment does nothing whatsoever to suggest either. You may have done a better job by pointing out he'd bothered to comment on a website that gives itself the tagline "Exposing and Combating Liberal Media Bias".

Bleh, Borat sucked. I'm sorry, I didn't like it.

As far as gun control, you do have a certain point. Yes, the vast majority of people are safe with them, those that bother to legally register firearms, but the gangbanger who illegally obtain an AK47 and can potentially kill innocents? Fuck that. Besides, the 2nd Amendment was written in the vain of arming militias (present day National Guard) and not civilians. Sorry, just a rather touchy issue.

once again proving the NRA and gun owners are crazy bastards. hint= no real reason to own a gun.

"ooh, there's only been one death by a permitted gun owner." yeah asshole, but how many gang bangers out there have them? outlaw them all get these fuckin' things out of circulation. what? 'that is the price of living in a free society' fuck that. europe doesn't have ht problem with guns we do, why should anyone be given the chance to off me because they have acces to guns. it's stupid.

Well, just got back from seeing Borat. I need to find some way to get 90 minutes of my life back. Yeah, it was funny, some parts, kind of like watching a jackass running around. It's novel the first few minutes, then you get tired of the incessant bantering and accent.

And it amazes me how much attention this whole Kenny Kramer issue is getting from people. Seinfeld's been over for what? Eight years now? I almost thought people had forgotten about it already.

As a much wiser man than I once said, "Rarely do members of the same family grow up under the same roof." That is to say your real family are the people you care about and care about you, not some stranger related by blood.

Well said and very much agreed with.

Well that's sad. I'm pretty certain my parents care about me and figured that to be the "norm"...

You're only alone if you CHOOSE to be.

So why did you place a after you said you spend holidays and birthdays alone?

You choose to be sad?

Fuckin emo.

I'm going to be alone again on thanksgiving, just like x-mas and my birthday

Not to be insensitive but...get a life. I have loads of acquaintances and a handful of friends. By and large I never see my family either and it doesn't bother me. Most of my family are strangers anyway. As a much wiser man than I once said, "Rarely do members of the same family grow up under the same roof." That is to say your real family are the people you care about and care about you, not some stranger related by blood.

Get a makeover, take some lessons in being cool, whatever it takes. You're only alone if you CHOOSE to be.

Happy TG Day to all, including those up to the north, who celebrated a few weeks ago... my niece was freakin' adorable as usual, teething on various plasticky (toy key rings and stuff) and wooden objects (cooking spoon, in this case saying "ba ba ba" whilst enjoying that.. man, I nearly fell out of my chair laughing). *Space Bachelor-from-Excel-Saga's-voice: "So cute....!"

Actually a RoboCop fan.

Robo/Murph: "Dead or alive, you're coming with me."
Emil: "No. You're dead. We killed you! We killed you!"
...
Bob Morton: "What are your prime directives?"
Robo/Murph: "Serve the public trust. Protect the innocent. Uphold the law."
...
I also remember a fictional game called "Nuke 'Em!" inserted somewhere in the movie... no relation to Duke, though.

Sadly, I used to recite that movie, along with Knight Rider 2000, pretty much line by line way back when...

The weird thing is that the TV is saying the dvd is outputting at 480i, and I can find nowhere an option to change the TV's resolution, none, zip nada. grrr very annoying!

You do not change it at the TV, you change it at the source.
