SnatchTease: Uchiha_Cycliste: SnatchTease: Uchiha_Cycliste: SnatchTease: Uchiha_Cycliste: woo! Juris Macto!

I'm in.

Missed your episode. Torrent that shiat! Sup man?

/um, what was the show called again?

I almost got away with it s02E09...


On an apparently unrelated note, does Juris Macto mean anything to you? =P

Juris M Taco? No. Hehe. What was the show called again? Also, how the hell you been man? Been awhile...

As is above =P "I almost got away with it" is the show.

Let's see. I was good, then busy, then bad, then tired, then bad and now good. I think I hate winter.
Late Dec, I was finishing work on a project I was borrowed for, that last week of work I put in 130 hours, kinda took me out for while. Otherwise, life is good. I've also had a nasty habit of only lurking for a while. Had nothing to say I guess.

how you been?

Doh. My bad. Trying to get it now. Glad to hear that you are now under "good" status. I've been doing okay. Need to pick up biz, especially now that I've found out that one of my clients I've been working for will be in Mexico for a month, so no pay from him for this month. I guess I'm just trying to stay afloat for the time being, but other than that, I'm doing pretty good. Just turned 30. Meh. Currently having myself a giggle over the HBGary Federal vs Anonymous debacle. So much win, so many lulz. You still working video production?


I went out to an audition for a movie a couple weeks ago, right now I'm still kind of my companies biatch. Once things calm down, and we have a slow period, I'm going to go have more fun. Career first, acting second =/. For now...
I'm hoping to stop using the train this week and start riding home again. Crossing over from (maybe) 27 miles/day to 45 is a big step up, it's going to suck. I get into this zomby phase for two weeks where I wake, eat, ride, eat, work, eat, work, ride, eat, eat, eat, sleep. and nothing else. It's brutal for a little while. And then it becomes addicting, and then you need it every day, and then as soon as you get to work all you can think about is riding home, and as soon as you get home all you want to do is ride back and life is good again. God I love California's weather =D.

Anon delivers, what else can you say?


You need a seed? or you dl'ing?

No Such Agency: VJStinger: Would get a lot of use out of this puppy too:

That is a shotgun. I doubt those were ever permitted for dueling.


aw, not even with slugs? yeah...you're right plus i'd probably get shot by the time I got the thing up to fire it anyways. The old-school flintlock should the standard anyways, IMHO. If your gonna do it, do it as the founding fathers did. :p

that is just a stupid gun. sloppy, inelegant, heavy, and totally overcompensating. learn to shoot and you don't need such a beastly thing. if i had to choose one pistol, it'd definitely be the colt python. the draw on them is like clockwork.

FTFA: I've been called an Islamophobe, racist, homophobe, phony Christian, publicity whore and my news agency has been labeled WorldNutDaily by the Wall Street Journal

Condensed for hilarity.

FTFA: Let's do what they did in the era of our Founding Fathers. Let's bring back honor and the necessity for civil discourse by reinstating the duel.

This goes a long way to explaining the first part.

Yeah, I dug riding the train out in CA, although most of it was back and forth from san mateo to burlingame to catch the bart to san fran. The weather there is awesome compared to most places I've been to in the US sans Hawaii. The cold...argh the cold.

I'm slowly getting it, but surely. Looking forward to you going all nutso. They get your real family to play the family in it?

cmb53208: Bring back dueling? OK, I'm fine with it: that way some of these goofs will find out that there are Dems that know how to shoot.


And unfortunately they'd be outnumbered about 20-to-1. Maybe the rest of your gang's World of Warcraft skills would come into play. Or they could use some of those WTO riots skills.
 
2011-02-07 10:52:33 PM  
Can the duels be in stadiums with landmines strewn around?
 
2011-02-07 10:54:10 PM  

Silly_Sot: Ihe author of the article is a fool. I've done some study of duels. I concluded that the most common outcome of a duel is two no dead idiots.


Duels rarely ended in death because most of the jackasses who thought it was a good idea were too stupid to know how to use a gun, and the guns sucked so hard even a hit wasn't likely to do irreparable damage. That's how Andrew Jackson got through 13 duels unscathed and only ever managed to hit one person.

The recently published unexpurgated autobiography of Twain/Clemens has an interesting section on dueling. His recommendation, make it a condition of honor that the everyone that will be affected by outcome: monthers, brothers and sisters, other loved ones and friends; are all required to attend the duel for it to be honorable and up to code.

Nope, they don't have the guy I'm portraying's family either. Though, the guy I'm portraying (Richard Keyes) does narrate his entire adventure. Heh, I can't imagine any *ANY* of my family on TV, they wouldn't do it.

Sounds like a self-correcting problem to me.


If only. The dueling craze lasted for about two centuries. However, when gangbanger culture was no longer acceptable in "better" circles, it fell out of favor. That's the reality of the duel--its social standards are still found today in street gangs.

Hey now. You know perfectly well that when white people shoot each other in broad daylight, it's a gentlemanly duel. It's only gangbanging when black guys do it in the middle of the street.

For all the people who are looking forward to seeing Republican idiots getting taken down in duels, remember: challenged party has choice of weapons.

It was -7 the other night. Biting cold. It's leveled out since, and damn am I glad I don't live in the NE. Went out to see my family out east and in 2 days it went from 70 and loving it to 20 and hating it. Now, 20 seems lovely.

Your fam must at least be proud about your appearance and portrayal of that crazed dude, regardless. Hell, I am, and I never met you personally (as of yet). I do hope your acting pans out for you, maybe even one day I can say "yeah, I knew that dude before he got all famous, rich, and douchey". Best case scenario, for sure.

Gun duels? Ah, yes, the dueling method of losers. If dueling is to be reinstated, require the use of swords. Force them to face each other at a yard or less distance.

That sounds staggeringly cold. when it's in the 30's or 20's here at night, when I wake up it's 40 inside my place, iono what I'd do if it got colder. I start getting cranky when it's in the 40s riding home and downright disagreable when it drops into the 30s. too.cold.

My family was actually surprised that I could act. My extended family was a little shocked that I could act as a nut so well, I'll see them all at a wedding in Fl in 2 weeks, that's going to be fun. I plan to pursue acting as far as i can take it, if I had my way I'd be a villain. I know I got it in me to come of as incredibly evil, and playing a role like that would be ever so fun.

I figure he's at least smart enough to stick to his strengths, and the idea of him in classic Sumo gear would be enough to make most people think twice about coming into close contact with him. Lincoln used a broad sword to wonderful effect during his first and only duel for much the same purpose, after all.

street violence of course is still free, but it's always unorganized and difficult to find a good vantage point.

That sounds staggeringly cold. when it's in the 30's or 20's here at night, when I wake up it's 40 inside my place, iono what I'd do if it got colder. I start getting cranky when it's in the 40s riding home and downright disagreable when it drops into the 30s. too.cold.

My family was actually surprised that I could act. My extended family was a little shocked that I could act as a nut so well, I'll see them all at a wedding in Fl in 2 weeks, that's going to be fun. I plan to pursue acting as far as i can take it, if I had my way I'd be a villain. I know I got it in me to come of as incredibly evil, and playing a role like that would be ever so fun.


Sounds like a good time in good weather. What part of FL you headed to? Used to live in Indiatlantic/Melbourne meself. Been watching some crazy vids lately, of armies of reef shark and jellies being most common this season on the shores. FL surf has always sucked, so no go there. Eat the turf though, om nom nom. You'll have a great time otherwise, I'm sure.

St. Petersburg, I think. I'm not sure where I'm going, where I'm staying or how I'm getting there, I plan to figure it out in the days before my flight. It'll be the first time I've flown across the country in 10 years, so that's exciting. I know I need to get my drivers license or passport renewed before I go... damn I gotta get on that.

FarkinHostile: Screw the gun duels, just bring back fist fights.


The world might be a better place if one were allowed to respond to uncouth behavior with a righteous backhand, instead of being forced to respond in kind.

As for TFA:

Me: [insult]
WND: You cur! I challenge you to a du-el!
Me: No thanks.
WND: Guns, twenty paces, by the fountain at sunrise!
Me: Knock yourself out. I'll be at the driving range.
WND: You refuse to duel? You knave!
Me: Whatever. kthxbye

So he spends the first 90 percent of the article biaitching about how no one takes him seriously, and the last 10 percent suggesting that people duel to the death over political differences.

Nice.

Nah, wouldn't worry about, lest your name on your license doesn't match the ticket. I'm sure you'll have a great time though. It's always nice to get away for awhile, especially when that entails hanging out with fam and the sauce. Just don't hook up with any cousins. heh

This may not be such a bad idea. Let's bring American Gladiators to the Hill.

Here I was reading a Fark thread, and then apparently the tubes got crossed weird and I ended up in someone's IM chatlog.
