What is the significance of Dec. 14?

Dec 14th is the start of the 12 days of Christmas

"The teenagers on Saturday allegedly taped threatening notes to the front doors, warning that the homes would be burned down if outdoor-decoration lights were not turned off until Dec. 14. "

You know you're in Somerville, Massachusetts when you see Christmas lights on houses... in the middle of April. Amazing that they used to call that town Slummerville: now one bedroom apartments there are going for $850/month, minimum

No Christmas lights should be on until December anyway, and morans even started turning them on back in September... Their houses are the ones that should be burned down!

/Supermarkets who put xmas stuff before halloween should burn down also
//hahah just kidding thanks
2005-12-01 06:49:05 PM  
They WERE making terrorist threats.
The reward? National media attention.

Gooood Work boys.

"Statewide manhunt" ? That certainly doesn't mean every couch potato in the state is suddenly going to stand up...
2005-12-01 06:50:00 PM  
"I do believe it was a prank . . . I'm not sure they were thinking of the consequences. They meant it to be a joke,"

ya think?

Was it the 'disenfranchised' Mormons or not?

I live in California. Bay Area. I'd give my left nut for a 1 bedroom at only $850.

Quitcher biatchin.....

That prank would have been a real laugher if those teens found themselves in Gitmo getting waterboarded!
2005-12-01 07:04:10 PM  
I'm pretty impressed that they turned themselves in, actually. I wouldn't have, at least not at that age.

Haha! My 2-bedroom is $465 and I only have to pay half of it, plus half of the electric bill ($10). I dunno how you people on the coasts do it. Sucks to be you.
2005-12-01 07:08:40 PM  
Ehh, I did at least one prank as a teen that could be classified as low-grade terrorism. At that age you still aren't 100% good at the notion of social boundaries.
2005-12-01 07:10:36 PM  
I hope they are treated as any Muslims in this case would be - Gitmo and maybe a two week trip to a torture facility in Hungary.

C'mon Federal Gov't - show us how farked up the PATRIOT Act really is and use it to its fullest extent in this case. Unless, of course, there are two sets of laws, depending on your race and religion. And we all know that's not true. Right?
2005-12-01 07:11:41 PM  
The end of the letter should have said HAHA, just kidding, thanks.

whorehopper: What is the significance of Dec. 14?

I dunno how you people on the coasts do it. Sucks to be you.

How do we do it? Barely. Just pharkin barely. I'm making, after taxes, about $2500 a month. After rent, innernet, TV, auto insurance, student loans and food, I have enough money left to pay for gas so I can go to work every day.
2005-12-01 07:13:40 PM  
whoops nevermind. jdshill got it.
2005-12-01 07:13:55 PM  
Silly teenagers, didn't even demand money.
2005-12-01 07:20:38 PM  
We pay $750 for a 2bd / 2 bath with garage duplex here in southern oregon. Ive got a roommate so I only pay half of everything. Dont know how Dr. Moonlight's utilities is only $20/month.. We pay about $220/month.. but that includes everything.. electricity, heat, gas, sewer, water, internet, tv.. stuff like that. After taxes, I take home about 2k/month.. which is fricken nothing. Of course, I'm getting raped on my car which is $436/month.. and its a fricken Cavalier!
2005-12-01 07:22:21 PM  
In my hometown, you can get a 3 bedroom for $200, but it is just a small city in Appalachia.

2005-12-01 07:30:13 PM  
Dumb-Ass-Monnkey I live in California. Bay Area. I'd give my left nut for a 1 bedroom at only $850.

I'm sure you can find one in east Palo Alto for that. How are you going to send your left nut to me?
2005-12-01 07:30:47 PM  
Rent stats: Cleveland, near the CWRU campus in University Circle. One bedroom for $620ish a month, but that includes parking right out back (an oddity in this area), free heat and gas and laundry in the basement.
2005-12-01 07:30:52 PM  
props to Dumb-Ass-Monkey for turning this thread into a filter farkup
2005-12-01 07:34:19 PM

/Oh yea...and Dumb-Ass-Monkey wins 'cuz it's fun to say ph-fark
//you ever tried slashies ON WEED?
2005-12-01 07:36:22 PM  
Yes.. San Diego is VERY expensive... but damn I would love to move back to southern california. Would like to live in Newport or Huntington Beach.. have a house there and a vacation lodge at Lake Tahoe. WOOT
2005-12-01 07:36:53 PM  
I pay $540 for a 2-bedroom townhouse apartment in Eugene, Oregon. Unfortunately, finding a decent paying job here is difficult and most don't offer any kind of benefits.
2005-12-01 07:38:10 PM  
Its filter f-uck-up
2005-12-01 07:39:10 PM  
conniemac.. yea, I dont get benefits either.. (small mom and pop shop).. but you should be able to find something in Eugene.. isnt Eugene bigger than Medford? I work in Central Point though.. decent money for now.
2005-12-01 07:42:14 PM  
ya Twitch OSX it's expensive...but it's also sunny and 75 degrees on December 1st ;)
/you ever try a warm december day ON WEED?
//sorry just watched Half Baked... ON WEED!
2005-12-01 07:43:18 PM  
lelio.. nah.. EPA is an upscale neighborhood now *laugh*
Homes are selling in the 500k-650k range; even for houses on streets that look like they were paved by a clown car and with bullet holes in every sign. a 1 bedroom studio will still probably run you 1000-1100 a month.
2005-12-01 07:49:19 PM  
Exactly almejita.. f-ucking perfect weather. Somebody should write a Firefox Extension that changes your words to words to get past the filters =)
2005-12-01 08:06:55 PM  
Yay! I f-ucking figured out how to say f-uck without being farked! Yay me!
2005-12-01 08:13:22 PM  
I love you search and replace bot coonts
2005-12-01 08:14:53 PM  
I just RTFA and didn't see anything about a statewide terrorist hunt.

/maybe I just missed some sarcasm or something
