gun shows are awesome.

not only because you get to buy amazing stuff, but because most of my fellow shooters make walmart shoppers look educated sophisticated and wealthy.

"Really sir? youre going to spend 3k on that K98 sniper but you havent bought yerself or your wife a new pair of shoes in 4 years. Are you sure your priorities are on straight?"

5monkeys: kendelrio: My favorite was questions on a test (in English while we were reading Huckleberry Finn) that asked "In your opinion, what was the motivation for character A to do such and such".

When I get the test back, that answer is marked wrong. When I questioned the "wrongness" of my answer, the teacher listed what was wrong about my answer according to how she interpreted the passage. My reply was "You asked what MY opinion was, not yours, if you wanted me to tell you what YOUR opinion was, you should have specified that".

While you may disagree with my opinion, it cannot be wrong as my opinion is based on my observations of the situation and how my mind perceives it. My opinion could be steeped in herp with a large chaser of derp, but that doesn't make it wrong, only different from your perception of the situation.

My English professor asked us for our opinion on a character's motivation. I stated vanity. She told me I was wrong because "at her age (professor not character) she has learned not to care what people think of her." What?!


I love when English professors/teachers would ask for students' opinions and then tell them they were wrong, even if they said they were wrong because they lacked any supporting evidence to form an opinion. They never preface it by saying, give me your informed opinion on the matter(s) at hand.

CSB time

I was always in AP classes and graduated #12 out of my class of 1200 (would have been higher but since I was also active in Football it lowered my average GPA). My Senior year, the counselors made a mistake and placed me in a regular English class which was horrible. It took me about a couple of weeks to transfer out, and when I did the AP teacher was NOT happy of having to accept a new student 2 weeks into the semester and she made it known. On top of it, she had a chip on her shoulder because I was the Captain of the Football team and fairly popular. I have always excelled in creative writing, so I would often tutor or help my friends with their papers.

So, the time for our first paper comes and she gives me a 0 stating that she did not agree with my thesis statement, therefore she did not read the rest of the paper and wrote incomplete. I had a 4 page essay that was a required 2 page. Meanwhile, my friends' papers who I pretty much wrote, all received high marks. I confronted her about it and she flipped out and told me she wouldn't discuss it, so I went home and told my Dad about how unfair her treatment had been of me and tried to set up a conference so I could figure out how to NOT get a 0 taking the high road. Well, she did not like that one bit so the next day in class she said that "Anyone that goes to the mommy and daddy for help won't make it very far in life, isn't that right (my name)?" She did this in front of the WHOLE class for no apparent reason other than to try to establish she was in control and to further attempt to humiliate me. So, I did the only logical thing left at that point, I went on a 10 minute rant comparing her to a fat turkey, told her to fark off and left never to come back.

I ended up taking a for college credit distance learning course through a state university here and eventually took my AP exam. When you take your AP exams, you can list addresses and people to inform of your test scores, so for the hell of it I listed her address. The end of the school year rolled around and I received my scores, perfect 5. After graduation we had an awards ceremony for AP tests, She, being the AP English coordinator, had to award me with the certificate and in turn we had to give a brief acceptance speech. Since I had the microphone, I told my story in front of a full auditorium which included not only parents and students, but faculty and the school board and district superintendent. She "resigned" after that.

Thunderpipes: Liberals hate freedom of speech, news at 11:00.


No NO NO! WRONG! See, you have to nuance it. Freedom of speech is allowed, but "Hate Speech" is, for obvious reasons, NOT allowed. And liberals define what is speech and what is hate speech. Do you understand now? You'd better, or no desert for you!

RevMercutio: " I feel like he has just stomped on our right to free speech "

Yeah, being arrested and prosecuted for writing about guns must've been awful...

...Oh, wait. That didn't happen.

/the first amendment doesn't work that way, you farking moron.


Came to vent similar outrage, leaving placated.

If I've learned anything from youtube, there's nobody more certain to not have a clue what their rights actually cover, than the one screaming "I KNOW MY RIGHTS" as they're being tazed by the cop who is letting them know they have the right to remain silent.

Krieghund: From TFA:The Denton Independent School District said in a statement, "The teacher has accepted the paper and apologized to the student for misperceptions. The teacher's intent was for guns not to be trivialized in any school situation because of recent events."


Yeah, because writing about using guns in a nonviolent way it trivializing guns.  Gun usage must be equated with murder of fellow citizens.  Heil!

BigBooper: jtown: That's pants-on-head retarded.  When I was in high school, we had an English assignment like this.  Give a presentation on how to do something.  Anything you want.  So one classmate did "How to make various pipes using household items".  We got the apple pipe, the can pipe, the soda bottle bong, and basic theory on what it takes to make a smoking device that could be applied when those specific items weren't available.  It was a very informative presentation which was the whole point of the assignment.  He was graded appropriately and the format was changed so future classes had to have their topics approved.  (I assume there was also a meeting with is parents.)  No vaginas got filled with sand.

My art teacher let us make bongs in art class. He even fired the clay ones for us.

Of course now It's pretty clear to me that he was a stoner himself. But times were different then.


pot..... it there anything it can't do?
