Re: My Job, My Hell...

I love it when I've been away a while and come back to see this thread replenished with new amusement, but I also hate it when I've caught up on the reading again. Laager, if you ever run out of stories don't tell us, just start making shit up. I'd bet my last dollar none of us could tell the differ...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

Lil and I are heading out of town for awhile to visit one of her sisters. It may be awhile say sometime around or after the 10th of November, but I wondered if there is anyone interested in the story of Jackson? Sir, I am always interested in your stories. You're quite an entertaining individual. S...

There is no excuse for poo being in a tub and left in there short of "The house was on fire!" which would render the whole thing pretty moot.

Re: If you had to, how would you?

Anybody know if failed armor has any positive effect on survivability compared to unprotected and if so how close in rating it has to be to the threat that defeated it before you are likely to see any improvement? The whole idea with armor is that it protects the vitals. Even a successful stop, wit...

Re: If you had to, how would you?

What I'm thinking is that three months before collapse the gov is panicking and buying body armor is to put up a flag saying insurrection starts here, please disappear me at your earliest convinience as would buying a ton of guns and/or ammo.

If you had to, how would you?

If you had to make your own body armor if you wanted it. How would you make it? Would you just go for a chunk of steel between you and whatever size lead pill is coming your way or would you go for something more complex. Say you only have three months and the tools, skills and resources you have no...

Re: Interesting take on "whistling" Roman sling bullets

If it was close to what the math says you should expect then that's that I guess. It just seems there's way more energy left in the bullets after hitting the target than the shot.. Could the lesser speed of the shot, and therefore longer contact with the target, mean a higher percentage of energy tr...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

I think I get what you mean after rereading a couple of times.
So you think they think nothing bad will or should happen and those who do retaliate are monsters.

I thought you interpreted James actions differently than I did, but now I get you.

Re: My Job, My Hell...

There are those who think people can do any nasty thing they want; and, because we are all so 'civilized', nothing bad will happen to them in return. Those who cause that 'something bad' to happen are monsters. Personally, I believe in justice. One reason I should never have certain jobs. Seems to ...

No seat belt for their child? Who the hell does that? Bad enough not wearing one yourself, even worse not wearing one when your kid's around to see and take after you when you're not around but actually driving your kid without a seat belt on, what the eff?

Re: strangest thing you have ever seen

About ten at night on what I thought was a normal week night. I'm outside a subway station having a smoke after work on my way home. Across the square comes a man stumbling in what was once drag but it must've been a rough night, or a couple of nights. Mascara running half way down his face, lipstic...

Once I was out tripping on something I shouldn't have. Walking home to a friend's house we pass a street sign. The pole was stuck in the ground so close to the building that the had to put a bend in it so they could fit the sign on it without digging into the wall. On that bend a bicycle was hanging...

from what I have read here, it might be safer to give her top billing. Not really our place to talk about his wife like that, adress him directly instead.

Re: My Job, My Hell...

Laager, I thought about the book idea. If you do it in a collection of short stories format like we've had the fortune of getting them it would be interesting to get lil's perspective on them, whenever applicable. So your story followed by her version of it, that'd be comedy gold I think.
