Oooh good one! Forgot about Trinity.


I think that was the most terrifying scene of the entire series for me. I used to do a lot of construction work and the thought of getting done with a hammer freaks me out.

The 12 ounce hammer is my penis.

Nailed it. Well struck.

Solution: Ban hammers.

/frickin' genius


So, they should ban blacks? I'm not following your reasoning. I'm sure the African-American residents are just as disturbed about it as you are.

brap: MrBallou: Article gets bonus points for referring to the "gang of five or six black males wearing white T-shirts" as "goons". That word that doesn't get used in journalism as much as it should.

Goon is a good word but its meaning has warped so much that it is confusing. It went from idiot/hired thug/dumb musclehead/juvenile delinquent

The British rags get all the fun with throwing "yobs" around.


It went from what to what?
 
2013-07-23 12:53:59 PM  
So of course.. I'm sure it was a bunch of black thugs attacking whitey.  This is the last we will ever hear of this.  The media will now ignore it.

serpent_sky: Being that this isn't the first hammer attack in NYC recently, there's some asshole or assholes out there that fall into the category of serial hammer attacker. Or whatever you'd even call something like this.
 It's amazing how deranged people can be.


Try "biker gang" for a fit. They notoriously use hammers as weapons since when police ask why they carry them they can claim that it is for fixing the starter on their bike. I think the Hells Angels gave a pin of a ball peen hammer as a medal for murdering for the gang.

Really?  I'm sure the black residents in the area are chalking it up as a "win" against the horrible honkey oppressors.

I remember hearing this story a lot in NYC 25 years ago, but it usually included the word "wilding".

Sources said he was set upon by a gang of five or six black males wearing white T-shirts, and that at least one of the goons struck him over the head with a hammer.

So can I use the word "goons" instead of "thugs" now? We called them something different when I was a kid.

Joan was quizzical, studied pataphysical
Science in the home
Late nights all alone with her test tube
Oh, oh oh oh

Maxwell Edison, majoring in medicine
Calls her on the phone
"Can I take you out to the pictures Joan?"
But as she's getting ready to go

A knock comes on the door


Bang! Bang! Maxwell's silver hammer
Came down upon her head
Clang! Clang! Maxwell's silver hammer
Made sure that she was dead


Back in school again Maxwell plays the fool again
Teacher gets annoyed

Wishing to avoid an unpleasant scene
She tells Max to stay when the class has gone away
So he waits behind
Writing fifty times, "I must not be so"
But when she turns her back on the boy
He creeps up from behind

Bang! Bang! Maxwell's silver hammer
Came down upon her head
Bang! Bang! Maxwell's silver hammer
Made sure that she was dead

P.C. Thirty One said, "We caught a dirty one"
Maxwell stands alone
Painting testimonial pictures
Oh, oh oh oh

Rose and Valerie screaming from the gallery
Say he must go free
The judge does not agree, and he tells them so
But as the words are leaving his lips

A noise comes from behind


Bang! Bang! Maxwell's silver hammer
Came down upon his head
Clang! Clang! Maxwell's silver hammer
Made sure that he was dead

Silver hammer man!

In other news, Mayor Michael Bloomberg has announced that he plans to ban everything and everyone in New York City. Says the Mayor: "It's apparent that since it's people doing anything at all that seem to cause the most problems for other people, the only solution is to completely evacuate the city. Last one to leave please turn the lights out. That is all," before he retired to his heavily-fortified compound in Connecticut to enjoy a bonfire of aborted fetuses, Bibles and hundred-dollar bills...

Seriously, do you really do blacksmithing work? Seems like it would be cool...


Actually, yes, I do some smithing (at apprentice level, admittedly; still learning techniques and such). My main project right now is to make a few bucklers for my renfest fighters group.

A gang of five youths beat two different victims in a serial gang attack.

So these will be hate crimes, right?
Bloomberg will appoint a special prosecutor?
Holder will be looking into civil rights violations?
Obama will get on the news about our "national tragedy"
Prayer vigils will be held?
Calls for justice?

Oh wait, I forgot.  This was just everyday crime in Harlem.  Move along.

I'm hoping that eventually the gangs will run out of things to use as weapons and will be forced to learn kung fu to carry out violence. Then we'll have rival gangs dueling with kung fu. I'm okay with that
 
2013-07-23 01:09:12 PM  
curious if this has a racial motivation
mostly 'cause the news described the twerps
but not the vics


Are you serious, you know black people are never racial.

That's pretty cool. I knew a girl who made chainmail, and I thought that was pretty neato also. I am too lazy to do that type of stuff, but I admire people that do...

That is exactly what everybody is thinking.. but we are NOT allowed to say anything disparaging about black people in any way, shape or form.  If you do, you are immediately labeled a racist and shouted down.  You WILL lose your job.
