Vodka Zombie: lenfromak: At MIT, the kid likely built all of it himself.

I don't know.  Those kids seem more likely to build dirty bombs or thermonuclear devices when they snap.  They seem a little too smart to be part of the point and shoot bullets crowd.



It's a phased plasma rifle in the 40 watt range.

WhippingBoy: nekom: Here's hoping it's just a dude with an umbrella or something similarly lame.

MIT is in the United States. Those buffoons don't carry umbrellas. They just shoot the raindrops out of the sky.

Yee-Haw!


I read that in MC Hawking's 'voice'...

Jon iz teh kewl: sethen320: Generation_D: There's two stories with regard to crime and guns.

1) Over all crime is down, but

2) Random nutjob attacking with assault weapons is way up since 2004.

It can be both. And both can be addressed, if the gun nut crowd would compromise an inch on various common sense regs.

But if they don't, I'd bet the eventual resulting laws will be worse. The gun nut crowd digs in its heels, which forces everyone else to dig in ours. And we outnumber the gun nuts.

Just curious. Do you label everyone who owns a gun as a "gun nut"?

i do.  but then again i'm gay


Interesting. Do you have special names for people based on skin color too?

clowncar on fire: Karma Curmudgeon: Benjamin Orr: Slate is crowd sourcing their data

I wonder why they have to resort to doing that?

1)  Because the evil media is in coerts wif the gubmint and only real 'mericans can be relied upon to forward factual information
2)  Because slate is too lazy to dig or the real data just isn't there to support their assertions?


3) The actual data is maintained by the Justice Department but exempt from the FOIA, cannot be legally released, and the only person who could singly compile all the data from available public sources, i.e. local news, is Sarah Palin and she refuses to help.

Benjamin Orr: Princess Ryans Knickers: Benjamin Orr: Princess Ryans Knickers: Giltric: Princess Ryans Knickers: 2189 gun deaths in United States alone since Sandy Hook and counting

How many murders?

Which part of gun death did you not understand? Always amazed at how many claim to be Christian but ignore Christ when it comes to weapons and violence.

So the suicides cut down the numbers too much for you?

So you have no empathy for your fellow man as espoused by Jesus?

Jesus wasn't real.... people who want to kill themselves usually find a way.

Try being honest.

Princess Ryans Knickers: If you are Christian than you shouldn't need a gun. Didn't Jesus say unto you that if you would just believe in Him that you would always be safe? Did He not say to lay down your swords (guns)?


I'm Muslim. My god says to kill everyone who doesn't agree with me.

NOW WHAT BIATCH?

Keep windows and window blinds shut. If advised, also cover and duct tape air vents, and turn off all the air handling equipment (heating, ventilation, and/or air conditioning) that you can control.
