Am I the only one who thinks Dan's response was excessively snarky?

Boo, autoplay!

Also, we just legalized pot in Oregon. We're number three, we're number three!

But our possession limit is 8 ounces versus your puny 1. Not that I've ever had occasion to buy more than a quarter ounce, but it'll be nice to know I have that option now.

Looks like the idiom is actually "rung down the curtain". I only mention it because I'd never heard of "run down the curtain" either, so I used the google.

Roller coasters vs. Machine guns:

One of these is designed to be scary but not actually cause harm. The other is designed to turn living things into hamburger meat.

How are we even having this discussion?

Cellular shades can have pretty good insulation values, especially if you go with a double or triple cell and get a tight fit.

Yo, Dan? You didn't answer the P.S. Though I think I know the answer.

@115, okay, either you're a troll, or you really believe the garbage you're spewing and therefor you're a cold, selfish asshole without the tiniest modicum of empathy. Take your pick. Maybe you won't discount my feelings so quickly because I have a penis?

@98, I've thought about this a lot, and I think it has a lot to do with the harassers and abusers being cowards and only doing this shit when they think they'll get away with it. I'm a pretty tall guy, confrontational by nature, and have been described as intimidating, and I've never witnessed the kinds of bullshit that it's clear misogynists do all the time. So either it's just a series of coincidences or (more likely) the pigs are waiting until I've left the area. I'm honestly a little afraid of what would happen if I ever were in the right place at the right time, because I might end up in jail and the perpetrator in the hospital. Or, if he's carrying a gun, vice-versa :-/

@14, yes, they deserved to die; and I hope they burn in hell.

@26 is correct. You do not point a gun at anybody/anything you do not intend to destroy posthaste.

And @45 is also correct. Wilcox had the best of intentions, and I respect him for that, but his poor execution (pun not intended...okay, somewhat intended) cost him his life.

I thought it was obvious from the handwriting alone.
