I’m in high school. I have many wonderful teachers. I don’t think any of them should be armed. Some of my teachers, and again, I love them, can hardly even operate a DVD player. I do not want any of them to be given firearms.

What about police officers that are extremely well trained and especially for a school environment and whom had been extremely background checked?

Every time another one of these mass shootings happen - right when the Republicans start telling us that the answer is more guns, guns for everyone, guns for teachers, guns for students - I think about Chris Kyle.

https://twitter.com/markpopham/status/964157915056803840

Chris Kyle was the American Sniper guy - a highly decorated Navy Seal sniper with 150 confirmed kills in the Iraq War. Whatever else is true about him, he definitely was very good at shooting guns and used to being in combat environments.

Kyle knew that the man he was with was dangerous. He knew he was armed - he armed him! To the degree that anyone could be forewarned and prepared for a situation, Kyle was. And yet the other guy shot two armed and trained men dead, got in a car and drove away.

Today a bunch of men are going to go to a gun store and they’re going to buy their third or 10th or 25th gun, because this scares them, and they think the gun is going to keep them safe.

You tell me in which scenario does a nut with gun have a better can at killing a lot of people.

  1. Going into a school where no one is armed.
  2. Going into a police station full of armed cops.

Or instead of hypotheticals, let’s use real numbers:

23 percent of emergency department shootings involved a perpetrator taking a gun from a security officer

But that’s in hospitals. Maybe schools are different.

that is good info.

but also keep in mind the opposite situation.

You tell me in which scenario does a nut without gun have a better can at killing a lot of people.

  1. Going into a school where no one is armed.
  2. Going into a police station full of armed cops.

It would be the second one, where said nut has the opportunity to get a gun. in the first one, he would be stuck with the can only, which isn’t very deadly.

Apparently Fergie (of The Black Eyed Peas) did a terribad rendition of the national anthem at the NBA All-Star game.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5cOvyDpWfM&t=12s

People are upset over that??? I’m old enough to remember a really bad rendition…
[pic of Roseanne]
I won’t link to any actual video, because it would violate the Geneva Convention. 😛

Piqued my curiosity, so I watched it on Youtube. Yes, that was awful, but not as bad.

First, either Roseanne very obviously can’t sing so any attempt by her is going to be bad, or else she was deliberately butchering it. But she’s Roseanne, so what do you expect? Second, she sang through it really quickly so the pain of listening was not drawn out.

Meanwhile, Fergie is an accomplished professional musician. She can sing well, and she should know better. She didn’t butcher the song by sheer lack of effort like Roseanne; she tried to sing it this way. She practiced it. She even had an accompaniment track. Plus, she sang the song sllooowlly, and gave listeners time to realize their brain cells were dying while the torture was still less than halfway over.

NPR had this on the radio the other day (i forgot about it till now). They also seemed to think it important to make everyone listen to clips of both performances. I did not appreciate them for it.

Yeah but I’m guessing you eat good pizza, so let me rephrase for duhmaged.

Who ships crap pizza overnight anyway?

I don’t remember who, I just know they ship from your mom’s house to my house…

I said: I felt like Daisy’s performance was weak compared to her performance in other movies.

Yeah, this site gets pretty confusing where people state a perfectly reasonable opinion and all you get as a response is “what?”.

Reasonable?

Whether you agree or not, saying that you feel an actor turned in a weaker performance is a perfectly reasonable opinion, yes.

You sure?

You ok my friend?

Seems in character to me, that being a self admitted snide and rudely sarcastic poster by nature.

At least you got that I was joking, even though for some reason you felt like you had to be a dick about it (though I guess that’s in character for you).

How does pointing out that you’re being a dick through your self admitted snide and sarcastic posting nature make me a dick?

Just because I’m sarcastic doesn’t make me a dick. And yet whenever I make a sarcastic comment you pop up to attack me and call me rude and snide.

(I would report you again for harassment but apparently the mods are getting lazy and don’t care to do anything about the fact that you consistently have it out for me with seemingly no reason beyond I have a different opinion on a movie than you)

Pack it in lads.

If either of you have any concerns or issues you can always ask for mod.

Just fixed that one thing, I hope I wasn’t out of line. 😉

Lets try to predict your age thread?

DominicCobb said:

Most of these seemed kinda off base, so I’ve done a very original thing here and changed these numbers to my own guesses.

Mark’s Down On Your Syntax said:

My age is a prime number but I feel inferior as it’s not one of the small ones.

I’ve no idea if these have already been guessed correctly but here’s a few predictaguesses from me:

yhwx = 26

Ender = 35

Warbler = 38

Dahmage = 33

oojason = 41 (JEDIT: not too far off)

greenpenguino = 29

Silverwook = 48

Ray = 35

Possessed = 24

Chyron = 39 (going on 12 😉)

Close enough Dom. You know me well.

President Donald Trump, after being criticized for his response to Russia’s election meddling, challenged Attorney General Jeff Sessions to launch an investigation into the Obama administration for failing to do enough to stop the 2016 election foreign interference.

why is this thread called predict your age instead of guess your age?

not to be too technik, but if i predict your age of 75, i would be right as long as you don’t die before then, right?

It’s just that in two instances today, it seems that people thought I was being actually serious when I thought I was being obviously facetious. Frink took my posts in the age thread literally, and both of you seem to take my bit in this thread as literally suggesting that those parents should be barred from voting. I don’t know what’s going on here.

people? frink?

Okay, let’s say it’s Frink. What do you have to say about my post?

Can I answer?

I’m not sure why that’s a question that needs to be asked, but yes, you can answer.

No one has ever done that.

I don’t think I get comments like this said about me often, but I’m seeing them a lot today. What’s going on? Is there something different today? Is it me?

i refuse to believe it is me, if that helps.
