Many New Gun Owners

A thought just occurred to me, a consequence of all the dead from COVID. A lot of gun collections are getting passed on to people that may not have experience with guns.

Just an observation, not making any other statement beyond that.

Double KN95 masked.

My wife has a procedure today, so we both doubled up. Still seeing lots of cloth masks.

These are more snug than cloth ones, yet glasses do not fog near as much; even doubled. I did order some mask clips while waiting around, as these rub a bit more on the ears for me.

You've got nowhere else to go.

You don’t have to like how things are working out, but unless you can point to a more viable party as an option:

How many people here have had a troll respond with...

…”Adoption not Abortion!!!”?

We have a Supreme Court justice making the exact same argument a troll would make. Her personal choice of adoption should not have any relevance to the judicial question at hand.

This was a very long game set up with her. “She can’t be racist, because she adopted a minority.” “She can’t be criticized for her religion cause other justices are Catholic.” and finally, “see, she walks the walk and adopted, so all women, young girls and rape victims should bring to term and give them over to adoption services.”

How has your booster treated you?

Got mine today (Pfizer). Like the others, I have not felt sick. Unlike the others, my arm is very sore.

So what are ways you have wasted money?

That $230 jean thread gave me the idea for this one. Mine has been computers. From a $5,000 Alienware back when World of Warcraft came out so very long ago, to an even more expensive Falcon Northwest one not all that long ago.

So I guess that is how I like to spend the extra cash I come up with. And as I told the person in the Jean thread, at a certain point you are just paying for the name. Advice I don’t care to follow when it comes to a Falcon computer. They have top notch customer service and I don’t have to worry about building it and messing it up.

So what’s your avoidable, your own damned fault, money sink?

Are you out of the loop on what kids tease about?

So am I. I have not set foot in a high school, as a student, in damn near 25 years.

So could some of you help us out here. It seems the shooter was bullied for having nice things. I know a friend who’s daughter was bullied for being too thin.

Is it a situation where the kids just flat look for something to tease about now, if no thing is apparent? I remember kids being teased for being poor or fat. Is it reversed now or just you can’t win? Skinny girl gets made fun of for her weight; so does the fat one. Rich kid gets shit for fancy clothes, poor kid gets bullied for welfare clothing, and the quiet ignore-me-style kid gets bullied for the crime of attempting to Teflon their way through school?

I was a Teflon student myself. Never bullied. Got along with the preps, geeks and stoners alike. Maybe that isn’t allowed now. Gotta be bullied for something sorta outlook.

Saw remake time!

They are going to have to remake the Jigsaw movies. The new ones will be about a maniac who gets people to kill themselves by both refusing to acknowledge people around them are dying of a virus, while also getting them to believe solutions, which will harm them if tried, will actually cure them of said virus.

He also masterfully gets the surviving family members to say the victim was simply called home to Jesus and is in a better place.

I feel like I’ve seen the movie already, with the only difference being this remake’s mastermind shits his britches.

You know what is coming 18 years down the road, right?

All the GOP ads featuring those born because their moms were denied their constitutional right to a choice. The ones featured will be the ones they were able to turn to their way of thinking. The ads will be worse than anything with Sarah McLachlan music playing in it.

Is there a limit on how many times you have to pay $10,000?

Like if an entire group focuses on a woman, do they all get to sue her individually and in essence, bankrupt her?

Edit: I mean sue the people that help her. Can they sue them multiple times?
