If it's the thread I'm thinking of...it's not here anymore from a "collateral damage" type move with the OP being caught up in something unrelated.

I had a vision this morning.

I envisioned an alternate universe not unlike our own, where certain events that have unfolded during human history took a different turn of events. In it, Mark David Chapman did not shoot John Lennon, he tripped at the last second and unloaded his .38 into Yoko Ono instead. Stevie Ray Vaughn never got on that Helicopter, he took a bus, and Jon Bonjovi got on the helicopter instead. On and on throughout history, tragic mishaps that happened in our universe, did not in this one, and TRULY GREAT music flourished and great minds from the past who passed on before their times went on to enlighten untold generations more.

But there were two constants in this Universe from our own, two singular entities who's existence threatens art and higher thought for generations to come in this perfect world. I think you know who these people are without my having to mention them.

I saw an older, heavy set man, drinking his coffee on a Sunday morning, and picking up a phone to call a friend. The voice on the other end of the phone spoke quietly....

"Hello?"
"Bill?"
"Speaking, who is this?"
"Bill, this is your friend Sam, how the f*ck are doing?"
"Lovely, Sam. How are Malika and the kids doing?"
"They're doing all right. But that's not what I wanted to talk to you about, are you reading the morning paper?"
"No, I haven't gotten it yet... is there something I should look for?"
"Perhaps. There's something on the front page that's REALLY bugging the sh*t out me, man, and we need to do something about it."
"Do you want to just go ahead and TELL me or are you going to make me wait for it?"
"God you're crotchety in the morning. But I'll go ahead and tell you, the headline reads 'Bieber and Black sell out Shea Stadium in 5 minutes.'"
"... do WHAT?!"
"We need to do something, Bill. This sh*t cannot go on for any longer. Do you have Ted's phone number handy?"

The conversation goes from there, as two middle aged men begin to form a plot. And they contact a third, but he refuses to participate in their plan, so they go it alone.

My vision went on from there, as the two men, dressed in black leather and trench coats straight out of Matrix STORM the gates at Shea Stadium, exchanging automatic gunfire with security guards as they make they're way to the back-stage area. There, they find the stars of the show, eating the souls of a couple of sacrificial concert goers, and our heroes UNLOAD a hailstorm of lead into their carcasses, dousing their remains with holy water and rock salt to finish them off.

The papers the next day read....

"The War on Good Music is OVER; Kinison and Hicks eliminate Bieber and Black. Ted Nugent unavailable for comment"

That's actually what it was; matching pj's. Our church deacon's nephew and his wife showed up to services one Sunday morning wearing matching pj's that SHE made for the both of them just to show off her mad sewing skillz. Purple and white diamond pattern. AND THE GUY WAS HAPPY ABOUT IT.

Whipped.

You do realise 'birthday suit' means Nude !

I've been off the booze now since March 1/11
I've been thinking of not drinking as often , or possibly continuing the dry spell throughthe first part of the summer .

But a family memeber sent me a photo, from a temperance meeting, where the ladies had signs up about how they would withhold themselves from drinking men.
After seeing the photo, I've gone back to drinking right now !
I hope the medicine I'm presently taking doesn't react badly ...but I'm drinking a 4 fingers straight rye over 2 ice cubes, as I type this !
(I really needed it & no they aren't looking any better....I'm not sure there is enough alcohol in the Province to get those girls looking prettier !!!!!)
But I took the threat seriously & I now feel safer ~;)

Amen. ;-D

There was a comedian on the Bob and Tom show a while back who was asked "if you could travel back in time, where would you go and why?" He responded by saying "The 1920's. Why? Well, at that time, girls who were homely looking, flat chested, and had short hair were the hottest girls around. Which means somewhere around that time, there was a BEAUTIFUL girl who was stacked and had long hair, but she had self-esteem issues. BINGO!!!"

I finally got my Zombie Apocalypse gun completed, I just found my camera so I can post a picture of it. It's my Mossberg 500 shotgun with a few modifications. 18 1/2" security barrel, Pachmar Vindicator pistol-grip and forend, and a Viridian brand green-laser sight I found here locally for CHEAP. I wound up spending a little more than what a Mossberg Cruiser would be new, but it's a little more badass than anything you would get off the shelf, too.

Yep, see attached picture.

I modeled this after my friend's (the dude I bought my swords off of who was ex-military and had the meth problem) Remington 870. Since he was a Class 3 weapons dealer, he got a hold of a police issue 870 with a 14 inch barrel, pistol grip, and a red laser sight on it. He had knives and other weapons scattered throughout his has "just in case," but this was the gun he reached for first for home defense.

His also had a full turkey-choke installed on it, and could put a shot-pattern about the size of a golf-ball at 30 yards I want to get THAT kind of mod.

I'm thinking about it.

That, my friend, is the definition of overkill.

It makes more sense on a shotgun than a laser.

Its something I never would have picked myself...but a female i know who works at the village liquor store told me about iot.
Forty Creek Barrel select.
It won distillor of the year 'Whiskey Magazine
& the rye got an 8.5.
Crown Royal Select Special reserve got a 7.75
Canadian Club Classic got a 7.75
Canadian Club Sherry cask got a 7.75
Crown Royal got a 7.5
Canadian Reserve got a 7.5

Those were the top 6.
It is really smooth, not sweet, brewed in small batches , run off in copper stills & aged in several different casks, whiteoak, & then finished in sherry barrels.

I was recently in Toronto Ontario & couldn't find it.
It's from a Canadian brewer.

I can't fire from the hip and be sure I'll hit anything with a flashlight, though.

It's not sighted in to a particular point down range, it's sighted in parallel to the barrel. With buckshot, the laser just gives me a general idea of where the shot will wind up.

Classes are over. I just have to defend my thesis on Monday, and then I can graduate when I pass everything. Hopefully full-time employment will come soon. I already have one offer and a potential second one so we'll see what happens.

In the meantime, there's the possibility I'll be moving to another state for a job, but my car insurance company has decided to screw around with me, so I may be calling for quotes soon just in case. Of course, I get to go through the whole insurance mess after the wedding when my fiance and I consolidate (along with name changes but that's separate).

Yeah, I want to change my last name. I have several reasons. One, it creates consistency and less confusion if we have kids. Two, it's a nice gesture, IMO. Three, my last name begins with a Z and I'm tired of being last for everything. Take school for instance. When the teacher divvied out school projects, the people before me got good ones, and by the time they got to the Ws, all the crap was left. It may seem silly but that sort of thing has always grated me.

Congrats rydia!

When I went to the town hall to fill out paperwork they basically let you do whatever you want with your name. You can both change it to whatever the fuck you want, even first and middle names.

My wife had a hell of a time when she took my name, though. First of all - all of your school records are still in your maiden name - and will stay as that if you graduate before getting hitched. When we moved to another state (which we did the day after getting married and again last summer) and she had to apply again for professional licenses in the new state and all her education paperwork from before we were married came in under her old name and it mucked the whole process up even though she said an all of the paperwork that she had maiden name stuff might come in under.

Second, all of your bills are either in your name or your husband's name. It's not totally imperative to try and consolidate everything as soon as you're married. For a year or two our TV bill came with both our first names and the wife's maiden name, all because we tried adding me onto the account and they didn't switch the last name! Also, if you have car loan or a title under your maiden name, try to get the name changed on those documents BEFORE moving to a new state. If you have a loan on the car, the loan company probably has your title and it's next to impossible to get it from them to change the plates to a new state if they have your old name on the document and the new state will be all confused when you bring in a title with your old name.

Lastly, you will in all likelihood lose your marriage certificate at least 2 or 3 times because most places want the original thing sent to them to verify when you tell them to change your name on important stuff (and even unimportant crap like connecting your internet). For a few extra dollars you may as well ask for a couple of original copies when they send it to you in the mail/when you pick it up after the ceremony. Some of those places will forget to send your certificate back or you will stuff it in the car to send in the mail and forget about it and it'll disappear. We have since found 3 different original copies of our marriage certificate in all sorts of places (long after we ever needed them!).

Most of our name problems were a result of getting married and moving to a new state almost immediately. If you have a few weeks after you get hitched before moving, then get all the major documents changed over to your new name and avoid the hassle of having to deal with two separate DMVs when you've got a drivers license with your maiden name and a new last name for everything else when you go to get a new license from your new state. Or, if you are getting married after you move, transfer all that important stuff over to the new state while you still use your maiden name.

The wedding's not until the end of September so we have time. By that point we'll be moved to wherever it is we'll end up. Where my fiance and I end up pends on some job offers.

I have one other additional consideration. If I copyright my thesis under my maiden name, what happens when I get married to the copyright, assuming I do copyright it?

Practice, my friend, practice. As long as your foots lined up with the barrel that's where you'll shoot.

Unless its single malt I don't drink scotch.
I like my scotch over ice.
Depending on what I am or have eaten, usually decides what I'd like. For grilled meats, or wild game I like Laugavulin or Oban... if I'm having several out at a bar , or at a party I like a lighter scotch, like Dalwhinnie

My fiance has been looking at potential honeymoon spots for a couple days. Never mind we're gonna have to delay one for awhile but whatever. I see those Sandals resorts on TV and he's been looking at one but I dunno if they're any good or not.
