berylman: Rope beats gun which beats fists which beats rope? There must be some logic here.
vudukungfu: The defense weapon was a lariat or reata.Lasso is a technique.Roped a few calves as a lad.
Empty H: Thank you.
RatMaster999: doglover: One pence, two pence, six pence, a peso!If you're for Zorro, stand up and say so![tgwd.fireboxstudios.info image 850x356]LOLI watched that yesterday. Introduced my roommate to it.
vudukungfu: Empty H: Thank you.As a 13 year old, at a ranch, who had made his own bullwhips and rope from leftover hemp twine as a child, they gave me a "training lariat" to rope with. I complained that it wasn't stiff enough for making a decent lasso with but my biggest concern was the fencing wire the used for the slip knot. It was wrapped around the rope taught, then bent around the free running rope so once it pulled snug, it would pull the wires apart and release. I said that it was dangerous. The cowhands laughed. They let a claa out of the gate, I went at it with the horse. Roped it first try, and it leaped on top of the slack and the rope ran down its belly. Once drawn taught, the wire opened, scrapped along the belly, and came out between its legs, Rock Mountain oysters an all. They now had a young steer on their hands and I had dinner./Told them it wasn't safe.//Poor bastard.

CruJones: One thing that really surprised me when I moved here was how many cowboy types are Mexican. I guess it makes sense I'd just never thought of it. In San Antonio it seems the vast majority of starched jean, pearl button shirt, boots, and belt buckle folk are Mexican./fluffy mustaches
freetomato: Great. Now all the Tea-Derpers in GA are going to start frothing at the mouth about illegals again.

99.998er: freetomato: Great. Now all the Tea-Derpers in GA are going to start frothing at the mouth about illegals again.Again? Didn't realize they ever stopped. I don't know, but I would imagine Bartow County if rife with teabaggers.
JuggleGeek: I doubt you did,
johnny queso: Someone not on a phone needs to shop up a "How Lamestream Media Sees Lariats" poster with various ropes and tie downs all labeled as Lasso.
vudukungfu: The defense weapon was a lariat or reata.Lasso is a technique.
vudukungfu: JuggleGeek: I doubt you did,Doubt as you may.If I wanted rope, I had to make it.If I wanted a whip, I had to make it.You kids with your 3-D printers have it easy nowadays.
