My wife and I just got gorgeous Mongolian shepherd hats made from the finest coyote pelts. Love them! I would wear fur like this every day if I could.



Quick aside; check this guy's story out. Peter Freuchen. The knife story is somewhat infamous.

Nearly right. A criminal committed a crime with a gun.

Could even be:

A law abiding gun owner committed a crime with a gun, so is now a criminal.

Ah, that's all right then. Not even any anectodal evidence, let alone proper data. Just your gut.

When did people use your gut to determine latitude? Or even their own gut, come to that? Gnomon-based astronomical measurements were used by the ancient Phoenicians; Polynesian civilizations had used the height of the sun or known stars to measure latitude possibly millennia before that. The ancient Greeks had sextants and astrolabes.

Or are you thinking about longitude? In which case you are barely less ill-informed. Dead reckoning (which is very much more than a gut feeling but still woefully and catastrophically inadequate in the absence of knowledge about tides and currents) was indeed used until Harrison's Marine Chronometer enabled the accurate measurement of longitude at sea in the 1770s. Which, coincidentally, is about as long as the US has been a country. So I refute your assertion in its entirety.

Dude, please.... I'm pretty much Captain Cook. What I don't know about sailing and navigation will fit on the head of a very small pin.

Go on. Keep going.

A law abiding gun owner whose inanimate object, to wit, his gun, was possessed by said object and coerced into performing this heinous act.

OK, so you were just deliberately wrong, then, rather than ignorant of the facts. That's fine. Carry on.

Come and live in San Francisco then. Much more opportunity to sail than in land-locked Denver.

Thanks for your permission to keep posting my thoughts. You don't need to worry though, I have no intention of stopping.

That's Dagmar in the picture with him. She's a goddess. I've a copy of her cookbook, not a first edition but a very nice copy. One of my prize possessions.

Already posted in another thread right now in MBTTUK forum, and posted many times on BE before I'm sure, but it might be time to watch this again, even just to have a chuckle. Many nails are hit on the head by this Aussie, in my opinion.

Apparently there is buycotting, I can see that might appeal to somebody like REI.

Cannot remember which one it was, that announced they were not selling 'Assault Rifles', apparently they only had retail outlets in Alaska that sold any guns and it only effected a few that they did not stock but could be ordered.

Explanation: This country is so saturated with weapons, legal and illegal, that anyone can easily and cheaply get their hands on one, background checks or not. Furthermore, the culture is such that they feel free to use them.

Well, I like to throw out little tidbits of misinformation and falsehood occasionally, just to test you and to keep you on your toes.

wtsp.com | The number of Delta Air Lines passengers who bought tickets with NRA discount: 13

13 passengers bought Delta tickets using the NRA discount. Delta's virtual signalling costs it a $40 million tax break in Georgia.
