  1. Something seems... odd about that weapon....
  2. I was listening to an analysis of the civil unrest in Egypt, yesterday, on NPR. The analyst said that it was likely due, in large part, to the increasing price of food, worldwide... some of those prices have jumped 50% over the past year. This same analyst linked this increase in price to droughts in Russia and the United States, combined with the shear amount of American crops that go into biofuels (those are among other reasons, but those are the three I remember). Apparently something like half (45-55%, I don't remember the exact number) of all the food that the US produces ends up being co
  3. My internet has recently decided that it will only download so much of a file and then it will stop. And it's not consistent. It can download something as large as a couple of megabytes without a hiccup. Or it will only download a couple of kilobytes of that file and stop. Dead. Consequently, I cannot up-date my anti-virus software and I cannot watch anything on The Escapist (and I have to re-load a page a half-dozen times or more to get things like Pimp-My-Gun to work).
  4. Woah! You're still alive!? God must love you!
  5. "I'm confused. No, wait... I think you're confused." -Dr. Simon Tam Am I not communicating effectively? Did I not say that Hedge was correct when he pointed out that Irish citizens are not British citizens? Did my comparison of an Irish citizen calling themselves British on account of geographical location (the British Isles) with a Mexican citizen calling themselves American on account of geographical location (the Americas) really make what I said that much murkier?
  6. Which is something that you would have basically read in my posts if you had, you know, read them.
  7. True. I suppose that someone from the Republic of Ireland has as much right to call themselves a British citizen as someone from the United States of Mexico has to call themselves an American citizen. The more correct terminology would be that they are citizens of a British or American nation, I reckon.
  8. I can understand that someone might want to be thought of as Welsh or Scottish or Irish or English before being British, just the same as I can understand how someone might want to be thought of as a Virginian or Texan before being American. But a government organization tasked with investigation and staffed primarily by individuals with Juris Doctor degrees should, I think, know that anyone who is a British citizen is going to be a citizen of either the Republic of Ireland or of the UK (and anyone saying that they're from the Republic of Ireland would simply call themselves Irish). @Kyria
  9. Apparently, the FBI is convinced that the United Kingdom is not a nation/country/state that one can be born in or have citizenship from. Apparently, one can be a citizen of England, Wales, Scotland, or Northern Ireland. According to the FBI. And we wonder why we cannot find Osama and how the 9/11 hijackers slipped through the cracks.
  10. People ( Brits and others ) who write 'Lego' instead of 'LEGO'. Perturbs me, it does.
  11. The soundtrack to Moulin Rouge, of all things.
  12. Dumb question: Where are you finding the Lipo PDW mod on their website?
  13. OK, since I can't get through to you, perhaps a Buddhist can: The man quoted is a Buddhist, pacifist, a fifth level black belt in Bujinkan Ninpo Taijutsu, and he has a Ph.D in Human and Organizational Systems. Link. As Captain Malcolm Reynolds so succinctly put it, "If somebody tries to kill you, you try and kill them right back." If you have a gun, use the gun. Your average joe is not a martial artist. The only black belt they own is made of leather and is around the waist of their trousers as they go to work. They don't stand a chance against an attacker armed with a knife.
  14. What you don't seem to understand is that you won't have enough time to react to an attacked armed with a deadly weapon if they're within twenty feet. You'll be dead. Shooting anyone armed with a knife within that distance to death is the only option you have. Other than getting stabbed to death. But if you fancy that, well, that's your choice. If you think it's better for a person to get knifed to death than for that person to shoot the attacker to death, you have no business living in a free nation.
  15. Is it now pizza with pizza topping? Anyhue, the person in that photograph was (I believe) a police officer who had been snuck up on by an individual armed with a knife. I believe it's one of those photos where one could probably say, "You look pretty banged up," and the subject of the photos could easily respond, "You should see the other guy." In any case, I'm pretty sure the guy with the knife got capped.
  16. And you would never be a judge, because you've never read the law. Nor do you, apparently, have any real world expirience. (Images may disturb some users.)
  17. Most of the people I airsoft with use M120 springs in their guns. One guy used an M140 and we were practically cheering when he moved away. It wasn't that he was a bad guy, so much as it was that his gun was more powerful than everyone else's, such that most people agreed that it hurt to be shot by him, and he was half-deaf. In any case, there is a reason why most sites and teams set the upper limit on woodland AEGs at 450fps. And there is a reason why Japanese and British law frowns upon guns that shoot higher than 325 or so fps.
  18. I would not airsoft with anyone who uses a 500fps airsoft gun at 50 feet. No way in hell.
  19. Barbrady, Jimbo, and the 1991 Denver Broncos. ®
  20. People who believe that they have a god given right to rule the internets and all who sail in her.
  21. According to Ambrose Bierce: "CAT, n. A soft, indestructible automaton provided by nature to be kicked when things go wrong in the domestic circle." Therein lay the answer to your question: What is the point [of] cats?
  22. That video made CQC4 look like a lot of fun. Too bad my group doesn't have the budget to get a CQC area and some actors.
  23. Boondock Saints FTW! Too bad I can't get my team to look half as professional.
