      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

NyQuil is about 50 proof. Some colognes are even higher.

Hand sanitizer is about 120 proof.

I'd rather slog thru the blizzard and bang on my neighbor's door for the rum. But thanks for the great ideas. (Would hate to get stuck at sea with you mob.)

Lemme see...we have scotch, rum, brandy, sherry, saki, Amarula, wine, Grand Marnier, wine, cognac, and a lot of free Polish vodka that came with other stuff one year. And Strongbow. And sativa. Out of beer.

 

I need all that stuff for when we fall off the left side of the continent in the upcoming end of the world.

Fucking amateurs.

Nailed it Hatin'. The amateurs run to the supermarket and fight over the last loaf of bread or half gallon of milk. The pros were at the local liquor emporium last week buying potent potables by the case and adding them to the already large stock in the house. Common sense tells you that you can never have too much alcohol to get you through these kind of events. Sitting in your favorite chair with your favorite libation in hand while knowing there are dozens and dozens of bottles in reserve is the only sensible way to get through these situations. Fuck snow.

Still have some Jack and some Mount Gay Extra Old and half a case of Sly Fox imperial IPA. Truck's good in this stuff, but I took a walk to one of the local bars that was open out of abject boredom. That didn't last long; my tolerance for a large crowd of drunk kiddies hammering various shots of Fireball and Rumchata apparently isn't very high.

All very valid points. Bump, we got a shit ton of wind, tiny pathetic snow flakes that mostly blew about and a nice firm layer of ICE. It rained a lot Friday night then froze. Drifting the little sedan just didn't seem prudent.

The worst part of the situation for those in Snow/Frost

 

Is you don't have any Good Mexican Food

 

 

That has nothing to do with being Stuck inside

 

It's just the 1st test for an area to live

 

If you can walk outside and smell Good Mexican Food it ain't gunna snow

 

FYI Texas ain't got Real Mexican Food

I've known wespy since he was in a stroller. His Grandfather and Grandmother were dear friends of my Father.

He was on a crash course with a very bad ending and I let him know it in no uncertain terms. If that makes me a bad person, so be it.

Salmon portions - the non-skin side, not the whole salmon just in case you weren't being amusing. :P

as much as i want to clean my armory on a table on the front lawn, and the law would more or less allow it, ish is right. cops would come up with some excuse to seize everything and toss me in jail.

 

and i like my shotgun. all 5 or 6 of them.

 

if i am going to the range i will actually make a point of hiding the gun cases as best i can on the way to the car, so the neighbours don't panic thinking i am going to shoot up the neighbourhood.

Clearly I'm missing a back story here, link?

no back story. i have guns. a lot of them. more than the typical american gun nut. way more than most canadians would imagine. to some, more than a small police force or army. culture up here is not gun centric by any means so i am classed as extreme right wing, yet in the grand scheme i am more center left than anything. there are some here, and live local, who don't share the same sentiments about guns as i do, but thankfully the discussions have been civil for the most part.

 

so, ishmael makes a true comment that if i were to sit on my front lawn with a shotgun in my lap the cops would be around in full riot gear in about 30 seconds. i'd be face down with a boot squishing my head into the dirt while the queen's cowboys stormed my house and took everything remotely looking like a weapon. they'd claim my goalie sticks are dummy rifles and charge me for having prohibited devices. they'd freak when they found the crossbow and bolts, despite it being found right beside a shooting target.

 

all that and more, despite the fact that our laws say nothing about carrying a long gun in public being illegal. it's the stigma attached to firearms in canada. people here just don't think the neighbour has a gun collection, or goes shooting regularly, or goes into the bush and blows up 20 lb propane tanks with tannerite for fun. guns here are for nothing more than killing, so they are bad.

 

but let's not get into another debate. this was a clarification on ishmael's comment, nothing more.

when i had punks scoping the house and snooping around the side and back of it, i had the idea of setting up an airsoft claymore mine under a tarp. have it strung to the tarp so when the tarp was removed, the claymore went off.

 

would sure be fun to watch, but if one of the bbs poked an eye out.... i'd be liable. for hurting a criminal. the victims have less rights than the perps here.

ah, the neighbours...

 

family of chain smoking alcoholic pot smokers. the mom says she has glaucoma, yet she is the one that drives everywhere. they have patio furniture set up in the driveway instead of the lawn because of "ants". they also have a monster truck that hasn't moved in 6 years. the kids i swear have development issues due to all the pot. the kind of normal sane one got herself knocked up by some skid row reject.

 

they are as redneck as it comes. thankfully i am out of here march 1.
