    If you're going to sling shit, make sure it's not so obvious to members besides me. When I get an email advising me of your sig line, that makes it a blatant personal attack. You were warned. Not my fault you were too fucking stupid to listen. And BTW, you were wrong. Figure out the difference between "caretaker" and "needy". And try marrying for something other than perceived wealth next time. That Jag didn't do you a whole lot of good did it. G. Jones "I've never been quarantined.

    Do you feel bad afterwards?

    Not fucking hardly. Working on an MICU (Mobile Intensive Care Unit) in my late teens, I've laughed till I couldn't breathe at several things that made my EMT-III (paramedic) throw up. All were fatalities and involved dismemberment (one traumatic decapitation) or severe trauma of one form or another. You laugh, or you cry. I chose to laugh; I cried enough. This was many years ago, and I would do the same now, and don't give a tinker's damn what anybody thinks. Unless you were there, your opinion doesn't count. Slipping and falling? Breaking an arm...a leg? Even compound doesn't qualify as feel bad material. Now a 10 month old with 2nd to 3rd degree burns from hot water in a bathtub, and skin slippage exceeding 50%...A 3 year old with his nose, upper lip, and half his cheek torn off by the family dog because he held "the ball" too close to his face? I felt bad. It's all relative, and very little of it matters. Perspective. G. Jones "I've never been quarantined. But the more I look around, the more I think it might not be a bad idea."

    So very sorry for your loss. I don't have words to make it easier; there aren't any. I'm familiar with your pain though, and my heart goes out to you and yours. G. Jones "I've never been quarantined. But the more I look around, the more I think it might not be a bad idea."

    All Good Things...

    Thanks Mike, that's very decent of you. That's my hope also; to at least have the choice some day. The tough part though is at my age the odds are not in my favor. G. Jones "I've never been quarantined. But the more I look around, the more I think it might not be a bad idea."

    All Good Things...

    I can't see the future to know if I'll ever be able to jump again, so it's not that I don't plan to. As for why I stopped; first it was the last two shoulder surgeries, then a C-spine injury that prompted my Ortho to throw a fit and tell me that I'm about one good pothole away from becoming an C5-6 Quad (his words) and "if I were you, I would be looking to schedule this surgery today, but since you can't, be very careful not to take any falls or have any accidents." If my shoulder is going to heal to the point where I can jump again, just from experience, it'll be at least a year. The neck; well, I still don't know when I'll be able to afford the surgery (mucho hardware needed), or if I'll ever be able to jump even if or when that heals. In short, everything except me is up in the air right now. If it wasn't for injuries, I'd still be jumping. G. Jones "I've never been quarantined.

    Headphones

    Want to get even more annoyed? I listen to my mp3 player while I'm driving via stereo bluetooth...on my hearing aids. Granted, I have to run full volume to be able to hear it reasonably well, but then again, I have to run a regular mp3 with Bose earbuds on "vaporize" to hear it at all. G.

    legit 10/10's at the dz

    Now if we could only get a majority of males to work off those same criteria instead of the major qualification being "she has two tits and a pulse," eventually the gene pool would thin itself out, and we'd have fewer self centered, ignorant people of both sexes thinking that two tits and a pulse are alone worthy of abnormal amounts of attention and effort. Well that was a waste of self deprecating humour GROSS! Do you really need to go around deprecating all over the place?? Besides that, I figure I beat the snot out of you when it comes to having absolutely no redeeming qualities at all. I just don't compound the problem by chasing after women who also have no redeeming qualities. The deprecation's getting deep now, isn't it... G. Jones "I've never been quarantined.

    She doesn't look like a bank robber!

    I disagree completely. No matter how bad you perceive them to be, they are trained to handle firearms and I am willing to bet that statistically speaking they are more accurate than 50% of the general population. I would much rather take my chances with someone who is not a cop. The number of poor shooters in the general population outnumbers the number of cops who are poor shooters by at least a factor of 100. I haven't seen a two year old yet who could consistently hit a target at 25 feet. Good thing we're not talking about 2 year olds then; unless you were referring to the cops. After quite a number of years shooting IPSC and IDPA, not to mention 3 gun matches with police and civilians, I can tell you that you're misinformed. My first CCW class in Reno was taught by the Sr officer on the SWAT team. Between Dave, Mike, and several other SWAT members I shot with nearly every weekend, they'd be the first to tell you that they didn't want a patrol officer or detective anywhere near them when the bullets started to fly. The average officer shoots only enough for mandatory quals. So you see, it's not a matter of perception; it's a matter of knowledge. BTW, you're not doing them any favors by saying that cops are more accurate than 50% of the general population. That's some pretty dismal odds given the ratio. Odd, how you state that as fact. Is it 50% of the general population, or a factor of 100? That's quite a disparity in numbers, Maybe you should actually consider researching your argument a bit. Then add roughly 15 years of practical experence in the arena, and we'll talk. G. Jones "I've never been quarantined. But the more I look around, the more I think it might not be a bad idea."

    Not on purpose they didn't. If I'm gonna get shot at I'd like for it to be a cop doing the shooting. Unless they're a firearms enthusiast (and the majority are not) to begin with, their shooting, as a whole, sucks balls. G. Jones "I've never been quarantined.

    They've made my day many times. Just that little smile, or sometimes the snicker they bring. Especially in light of the tradition, I say give it hell!! Little things I think are sometimes the greatest way we can pay tribute to those we miss daily. Carry on Brother!! ETA- LMAO again. Just spin 'em around a couple of times on the way out the door to confuse 'em. You don't want something like that showing up when it's light outside. G. Jones "I've never been quarantined.

    Dude, your ever-changing sig line is always a source of amusement. I'm gonna have to coin one of my own though. How about: Elvisio "I haven't had an eye exam since I was six" Rodriguez? G.

    Tell me you don't think she's cute! And added to her "hotness" is that she is wild! And I'm just saying, any place but NYC, it is rather hard to find cute/hot girls. Thus sure why not I would forgive her. Dude, there are a metric shit-ton of "cute/hot girls" out there who are: 1) Not white trash 2) Not "suspected" felons 3) Not strippers (I still think she looks like a $2 whore) 4) Not bat-shit crazy 5) Not from Georgia Maybe it's just me, but if I needed to "forgive" a woman for something right off the bat, that's an immediate disqualifier. Yeah...it's just you. Twardo, I gotta give you a sincere thank you for that one. Actually made me smile! Thanks!!
