    If that doesn’t work nuke the entire site from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure. I’ve had good success with those one way wire tunnels.

    Back in the day

    I loved those balsa wood gliders. I may pick one up this weekend for a kid I know. Thanks.

    This seems appropriate in this thread ... JFC.

    That was about as much time as I wanted to spend in it. There is a narrative that the MSM is out to destroy Christmas or at least take the Jesus out. The primetime airing of Linus' speech shows that may not be the case. Here's another primetime show that speaks to the meaning of Christmas. Secular but still hits the point.

    Man, one crazy night when I was a lot younger I got drunk in Moscow and ended up taking a girl back to my hotel room. To my shock, I found out the next morning that she was Lithuanian. Talk about your fake Russian hox.

    Can you edit your post and remove the quoted pics? People don't need to scroll past all that again. I wouldn't wear a MAGA hat. Can't help you there, kid.

    I'm white, male and oldish. I skew conservative in some things, liberal in other. My guess is that I'm pretty average in that. I don't feel persecuted but then my self worth isn't affected by fringe internet warriors. Here's the mainstream media furthering their war on Christmas. NBC primetime ABC primetime NY Sun editorial

    Your initial point was "attack" then it became "attack in are (sic) lifetime" now it's "civilian attack." Can you work through to your end point and save us both some time?

    I have to think you're trolling as no one can mistake "are" for "our." But what the hell ... Just big picture stuff but in my lifetime we've (the US) has seen Vietnam, The Gulf War, Somalia, Bosnia, Kosovo, Afganistan, Iraq. Do you want a worldwide list? I keep hearing this but I'm not sure where the evidence is. I live in Sodom and Gomorrah - NYC - and in a particularly churchy part of the city - Harlem - and I see nothing but full churches and people free to worship. If you can walk the streets of NYC with a forehead of ash in this city of left wing Jewish pornographers and not get hassled (as I saw dozens do on Ash Wednesday) I'm sure you can do so anywhere in the country. Other than a few morons (which every side seems to breed), where is the condemnation?

    I think it's more like 1200 gallons or about 10000 pounds. That's a hell of a lot of weight to crash down on a compromised structure even if they could target the drop.

    You may want to go back to the history books if you think no attack has killed more people. They are not comparable when you consider intent and lives lost but may be when it comes to what they represent to the people they affect. Referring to something as "911" is simply a way of communicating via a shared cultural event. The WTC site was referred to as "ground zero" many times then and to this day. Were those people equating the deaths of 3000 innocents to the deaths of 200,000 in Hiroshima and Nagasaki? No. They were reaching for an easily understood figure of speech that expressed the scale, despair and heartbreak of a tragedy. Christ, even Picard understood what the hell Dathon was talking about when he said, "Darmok and Jalad at Tanagra." He didn't argue about whether Tanagra was equivalent to the current situation. Fortunately, it doesn't look as if the damage was so severe that the cathedral will have to come down. It will be rebuilt, as was lower Manhattan, as was Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

    Going to be hard to top Ken Jennings' 74 wins and 2.5 million but if anyone can do it this guy can. Lots of fun to watch.

    Lost my dog today

    Sorry to hear. This is the best essay I've ever read about the loss of a dog. It was written by Vicki Hearne who was a dog trainer, author and philosopher. She trained with Dick Koehler whose father, Bill, was the great Disney dog trainer and author of numerous books. It's long so here is the cleanest link I can find. http://atpeacewithpink.blogspot.com/2016/02/oyez-beaumont.html Hope it helps some.
