    How do you make a duck sing? Put it in hot water until its bill withers.
  2. Thanks. I feel so provincial not knowing these things.
  3. I was just wondering about Infotrack as well. Setting up for a hotter angle expecting the glass off? Whatever they're looking for, they paid dearly for it.
  4. Sean Trew is my favorite photographer as well. My fave is this one he took of Artemis (Andrews 53) at Round the County.

    Interrupting cow is good. next time try "interrupting starfish". When he starts to say "interrupting starfish who?" clamp your hand over his face.
  6. No, but it is the media's fault for characterizing something as so common that I should be afraid to stick my head out the front door for fear I'll be shot and killed. Do shootings happen? Of course they do. Is gun related violence a problem that should be addressed? Sure it is. Are Shootings "common"? I don't even know what you mean by that word. But I know I provide field service for dialysis centers and home patients in the greater Seattle area, including the worst places the area has to offer, and have for the past 22 years. Guess how many times I've been shot and killed? I realize Seatt
  7. Meanwhile, in Ferguson... http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/ferguson-two-police-officers-shot-after-gunfire-directed-exactly-at-officers/ar-AA9Ga81 More gasoline on the fire. America is a tough place to be a cop these days. I hope the officers are going to be okay.
  8. I never once said that the problem was "too difficult to tackle", nor have I denied any facts you've stated, though I think your "murder-suicide" comments are specious. I also haven't held up any statistics to support my point of view. Agree or disagree, totally up to you...plus I agree with you: Statistics are too easy to bend to an individuals narrative. If I left the impression that I disagree that the proliferation of firearms is a problem, I apologize. It is clearly fuel on the fire. What I did say, and the only point I intended to make, is that as a country we are collectively focuse
  9. Boink, I have two problems with yours. 1) The intentional homicide rate paints a (slightly) clearer picture. Sorry, but if you see someone committing suicide with a firearm instead of jumping off a bridge as being a firearm problem, all I can say is that I disagree. 2) Correlation does not prove causality. Switzerland, for example, which would rate much higher in the Wiki list if it included government owned guns in the possession of citizens (military reserves), has a rate of gun related deaths/intentional homicide that is quite low by comparison. In other words, we are not violent because w

    So a nice looking young lass, upon arriving at a party, spies a Marine Sergeant Major standing off by himself nursing a beer. Feeling patriotic, she walks over and strikes up a conversation. "So what's the worst thing about the Marine Corp?" she asks. "Well Ma'am", he says hesitantly, "it's the sex. There's hardly any at all." "Oh come now", she says, "a handsome man like you in that dashing uniform? You must drive all the women wild. When's the last time you had sex?" "1950" the marine replies. "Oh NO!" the young lady gasps, "That's AWFUL...we can't let that stand, now can we?" whereupon she
