BolshyGreatYarblocks: special20: You know the next step is a fake babbie in a stroller. The up side, is that if a terrorist employs some form of fake babbie to blow up things, we won't have to hear the crying on airplanes anymore. Always look on the bright side, ya know?

And lasers in the jungle.  This is the long-distance call.  Don't cry, baby, don't cry, don't cry.


In the night, far away from nowhere...all alone, like Tarzan boy...

This

yup, sadly... this

Normally, I hate all the "greatest generation" crap.  In WW2, people had to recycle rubber, silk stockings, steel, cooking grease because that shiat was in short supply for the war effort. People bought war bonds. If you ride in your car alone, you were riding with Hitler.

And you can't chuck your unattended backpacks anywhere you want, and the terrorists win. Good for you.


Not the same thing at all. That was rationing because the war took over the economy. People weren't shiatting their pants every time their neighbor whipped out an umbrella.

You would have made a better argument if you said that at least we aren't locking away everyone of certain nationalities like we did with the Japanese back then.

No. That's a murse. Can't have mine.

Another Government Employee: To The Escape Zeppelin!: Just blow up a movie theater or derail a train. Tons of people and zero security. Or better yet hit a major bridge, the economic impact will hurt more people than a single bomb ever could.

Eh, Sideshow Bob pretty much did the first one.


No, he shot up a movie theater because he wanted to be like the Joker, since the Joker was all about shooting random people and not blowing things up and/or setting them on fire.

I might or might not have a messenger bag I've been toting for a year now. In my defense, I was bicycle riding for a while, and didn't feel like getting expensive/bulky panniers, and for a few months I've been motorcycle riding, and didn't feel like getting bulky/expensive saddle bags, and sure as hell wasn't going to leave a laptop bag just sort of casually drapped across my seat (work mandates I tote the laptop back and forth home to work).

I love the bag, it's roomy enough to smuggle a bieber in (or a laptop, shorts/shirt/shoes, various cables and work tools, a soda, and random misc, or a full week of groceries for a single dude), but man I'm tired of having to carry a farking murse everywhere. I don't see how or why women do that shiat. It's obnoxious.

Sadly that's what I've gotten out of becoming 50 (besides old, fat & ugly): pointing out that I've been tellin' ya so since 1975, and there were many before me (and many greater: RIP Abbie Hoffman). To those who ain't so ancient, how does it feel to be stuck living out a post-Watergate dystopia flick?

Me and the Bafflerette are on track for our expatriation.  We started planning several years ago, and nothing that has happened since has altered our idea.  It is possible to just say, "this sucks.  We're leaving."
 
2013-05-26 08:38:42 PM  
Awww, what the hell. Might as well. We can't send the kids to school with peanut butter. We can't let the kids ride a bike without a helmet. You wear a seat belt in the car. On and on. The list is endless. It's just another inconvenience, but, might was well accept the inevitable. Might as well strip naked and just walk around that way.

You knew this was coming.  In some places, it was already in effect.  During the NCAA Playoff practice, I had my cameras in a back pack but was prevented from taking the back pack into the Georgia Dome.  We had to run the back pack back to the car.

Fanny packs, purses, diaper bags, computer bags, brief cases, soft lunch pack coolers....all soon to be banned at a building near you.

The Yukon? Wrong direction. Too cold & winter's too long: all I'd do is alternate between snoring and whining about wanting to kill myself.

There has to be a place in Arizona just waiting for us. Abode is after all the desert form of sod, and it's usually cool inside at noon.


/ I know, I know, "Whaddaya mean US?" But I can get so lonely baby, I can get so blue.

// Walking distance to a liquor store would be nice. I'll buy if you carry the 12 gage: you never know what you'll run into in the desert. Besides a nameless horse, I mean.

Anyone may carry a backpack on a college campus.
Any unattended backpack becomes a field excercise for the local bomb squad.

No cars or Uhaul trucks would be the first step.  And then no airplanes then we will all be safe.

Pretty much have spent the last 30 years with some type of pack on my back.

1 Deuter 45 l alpine pack, used for carrying fuel and food for bush work (13 yrs.)
1 Deuter 30 l Trans alp bike pack (10+ yrs.)
1 Arcteryx Khamski touring 30 l ski pack (10+ years)
1 Arcteryx 35 Cierzo, ultra light climbing pack
1 Black Diamond 55 l ice climbing pack
1 lowe alpine 80 l expedition pack
1 camel back

Probably have owned 10 more.

Actually less dumb than the time when a bunch schools started banning backpacks over weapons scares.

/just bring back the fanny packs
//oh wait, then the fashion police will get you
///it would reduce the size of the bomb carried though

So...they're doing it because of Boston. I don't get it. One is dead, the other may as well be.

These people need to get over themselves. Boston was a fluke. There is nothimg so important about a run in Boulder that would make anyone want to do a repeat.

Bringing your own trees backpacking is hardcore.
 
2013-05-27 09:17:04 AM  
Maybe its a generational thing, but I don't get all the need for backpacks anyways. I use to go to school and all, but I never had to act like I was going on a hike to the middle of the forest each time. We have a student living with us who can not leave the house without taking everything he owns on his back.

After the Boston Marathon, as I watch the crowds leaving, I saw many 20 and 30 year old's with backpacks. I thought after what just happened that things would have to change like it or not. Frankly I don't care if people don't like it, leave the damn things at home....buy that drink at the spot of carry ONLY what you just need and can carry more or less out in the open....So yes, I support backpacks being restricted in large gatherings...Wish it didn't have to be that way, but safety first, or the best chance of reassuring it

I always get hungry after a long race, and I've made a nice big batch of jambalya in a pressure-cooker for after the race.
But I don't want to cause panic, so I'll just hide it near the finish line...

\...too soon?
 
2013-05-27 12:49:41 PM  

I_Am_Weasel: Ban clothing.


Given that 90% of the population of Boulder seems to consist of hot women, I would be all for this.

Better: compulsory nudity. "Prove you have nothing to hide!" They should also require body-cavity searches on demand. After all, our freedoms must be protected from terrorist Sharia law.

If you want to buy anything let vendors scan the bar code tattooed on your forehead. You'd still need to remember your ATM machine PIN number though.

Don't you know those scary Middle Eastern-appearing people with their incomprehensible religion are literally waiting at the gates of our empire ready to rush in and make us stop using toilet paper?

Better yet: compulsory nudity and assault weapon brandishing. That way if any terrorist-types show up they can be properly dealt with.

An armed & naked society is a polite society.
