commented on Our Flying Monkeys Really Soar
First of all, let me comment on this:
But I'm glad some people are patient/stubborn enough to keep trying, because sometimes you really do beat the odds.
Look, it's not about beating the odds. It's about not surrendering to despair.
Because, quite honestly, you will exhaust every last particle of oxygen on this planet before some people will change their minds about something.
But if you don't try, if you don't make the attempt, if you don't reach out and say "Wait a minute. Is that the only option? Is there no other way?", then you are as closed minded as they are. ALL sides must be open to debate. Otherwise, it's just an argument.
Kim has it right.

@16, I hope you never become a parent, because your loathsome post just revealed how you would absolutely suck at it, and you wouldn't be raising children, but rather future statistics. I wish ill upon no one, but there is a special section of hell reserved for people like you, and for my tastes, you couldn't get there soon enough.

Lew, and associated trollers, if you have a better idea about how to deal with this, please speak up. If all you have is trollery, STFU.
Really. We have seen your 'Great Idea', and we are all Wilco Tango Foxtrot!
Address this issue, or go away. End of fucking story.

You are being intentionally obtuse (I hope.). I said GUN CONTROL, not BAN. We don't place a limit on how many cars you can own, but as their USE can potentially have an detrimental impact on the lives of those around them, we issue licenses and test you regularly so that we are sure you are competent in that usage. If your vision goes to hell, or you regularly fail to operate the vehicle in a responsible manner, we rescind those rights. It should be the same with firearms, although perhaps a higher bar. You could still obtain them, and use them properly, it would just be more difficult. But if you want it bad enough, and can prove that you are responsible, you could get it. See how that works?
