  1. Tell Sherman? They built I-20 so he could get there quicker.
  2. OK..OK..I admit it! It was ME! I did it! I am the one responsible for GA being at the bottom of the ethics totem poll. It's all my fault! They found out that I took a penny when I didn't need it from the "Take a Penny, Leave a Penny" tray and I have never left a penny. And I (shame on me) made a pledge of $10 to PBS in 1978 and never sent my check. I admit to eating a couple of grapes at the grocery store without paying. And worst of all, when I was young, I would sometimes get a girls phone number with a promise to call and then never called. Before they got to me GA was #3 on
  3. Every time something like this happens I rememeber a story my grandfather told me. I posted this in another tread but to me it applies to all situations like this. It happened in ATL back in the early 30's. My grandfather woke in the middle of the night to a man stealing one of his chickens. My GF got his .45, shot the thief from a window in the house, called the ATL police and advised them, "I shot a man stealing my chickens, he is laying in the yard moaning, you better come get him". I asked what LE did, my GF said; they came and got the man. I replied; No, I mean what did they do
  4. To those who kidnapped TP, brought him to GA and are holding him here against his will. Please advise the amount of ransom needed to let him go so he can return to his "home". Don't be shy, I am sure we can raise any amount needed.
  5. I would double check the health dept rating.
  6. TV and movies would have us believe that shooting to "wound" is fairly easy thing to do. Here is an example of why in real life that is not the case. Date: Oct. 26, 1881 Place: OK Corral (Tombstone, AZ) In a space of roughly 10' by 6' seven men (4 on one side and 3 on the other) fired 30 shots in 30 seconds. Three men were killed and two were wounded. Two of the shots fired were with a shotgun and the rest were with pistols. The men were in all were good with their weapons and were trying to shoot to kill. Here are the results of all 30 shots fired at close range by trained men try
  7. Those who think you can shoot someone in the arm or leg while in a struggle watch to much TV.
  8. Sorta like my wife saved me $200 last Sat. when she spent $300 on clothes but since they were on sale, she saved me $200.
  9. I have never said anything about the Zimmerman case, period. I do not know enough facts to make a call. However, based on the few "facts" I do know, i do have an opionon. But I will not share it here. It was my understanding that Zimmerman had injuries from the 1st time i heard of this case, so I have never thought otherwise.
  10. Two thoughts come to mind. The first is that when I would get into an argument with someone who obviously lacked common sense, my buddy was say, "who's the idiot, the moron who can't understand or the guy arguing with him?". It helped cut down on my discussions with those who are unable or refuse to use common sense. The second is a story my grandfather told me. It happened in ATL back in the 30's. My grandfather woke in the middle of the night to a man stealing one of his chickens. My GF got his .45 and shot the man, called the ATL police and advised them, "I shot a man stealing my chi
  11. I don't believe in premonitions, but I did have a strong feeling yesterday that this topic would be posted today.
  12. Why do I get the feeling that there are some people on here to whom the statement, "That depends on what your definition of is, is", makes perfect sense. Also, I bet the items on some desktops are very straight, there are a lot of things at right angles and all the paperclips are arranged by size and color.
  13. I took it as the OP was asking about what was required for renewal at this time. I recently renewed my license, which I have had for 30 plus years and there have been a couple of changes in the past 5 years. The cost is now $70 or $80, they only take cash and they now put your picture on yout license. Now it is all handled at the Probate office, used to you had to go LE for fingerprints. I had stopped at an ATM and was only going to get $60 dollars out as I thought that would pay for the renewal and allow me to get lunch, instead I took out $80, which was lucky because the fee hand increas
  14. Being a male over 50, I just look for someone with small hands.
  15. If you think someone is breaking into your neighbors home, for God's sake don't call the cops and then do over and hold them at gunpoint. They may get a lawyer and have YOU arrested.
  16. Let me see if I understand this correctly. Neighbors see 2 people at a forclosed on and what has been an empty house. The neighbors suspect that the 2 people are there to steal from the empty house; copper or whatever. They call the police, get their AR15's (not AK47's), go over and hold the 2 people until law enforcement arrives. Law enforcement praises the neighbors and then handles the situation badly with the 2 people, who are the mother and father of the new home owner. Law enforcement does not even bother to interview the 2 neighbors, in fact law enforcement tells the neighbors they
  17. Be nice to the postman or he will get his bag with eyeholes and his baseball bat and hide behind a bush and attack you from behind. POSTED BY: THE POSTMAN [b]Posted 30 March 2012 - 07:01 PM I used to be a bully, but I" bullied other bullies. I also stayed secret. I was kinda like a sniper, but only used a ball bat. When I saw a bully doing what bullies do, whether he was bullying me or someone else, I started studying him. I would watch (stalk) him just out of sight. I would be behind something when he walked by, usually at night. I wore a bag with eye holes cut out, and would ly
