Hi there! How's it going?
Link Posted: 8/20/2005 4:42:49 PM EDT
I fail to see the problem.

I live in TX though, which is pretty much like getting beaten by the "Heat" stick every day.

I like the heat.

Cold sucks.

Snow sucks.

Shut up you pussy.

That's my one beef with you southerners, you're always bitching about the heat. I moved from Detroit to Dallas, and I wouldn't even know that it's hot if these damn Texans weren't constantly reminding me.

AC costs money I cant really afford and justify to myself.

I just remember when Im trying to get to sleep that if I was on welfare I could have the AC down to 50 with the doors open.

Don't mind the heat. World rather have it hot than freezing cold. I just carry a towel with me to wipe the sweat and keep it from running in my eyes and drink lots of Gatoraid and water.

What's wrong with the cold? Damn southerners always whining about temperatures. You're supposed to be well adapted tp the heat but that doesn't stop the whining.

In the winter, all I need is my leather jacket. What sucks most about winter is the icy, snow covered roads and driveways(I have a real driveway, not those 10ft ones that most call a driveway). Can't ride my bike in the winter because of it. You know it's winter when your jeans harden instantly and you feel it in your nasal cavities. Not like "winter" in the south.

You know it's winter in NY when you need to chisel the 3" ice sheet off of the windshield after you brush the snow off. When you need to shovel around the car each morning. When the snow goes up to your knees. That's winter, real winter. And it's great.

Looking back, joining the military was the best thing for me. I wasn't ready for college after high school. So, joined the Air Force right out of high school, did my 4 years, got out, and was then ready for college and everything else.

I'm serious, brother............go join the military.

In NY I gather Muzzle brakes/flash hiders/bayonet lugs/variable stocks/silencers are banned

We are allowed these here in the UK on our AR's

I've been wishing for a good 8" of snow for quite a while now. Supposedly this has been the hottest summer on record here in IL. I'm sick of sweating from the constant 90+ temps and 90+ humidity. I really want things to turn white again. I love snow!

You can always put more clothes on but can only take so many off.

That's what I mean. You can have the real action but you just can only have only one of three of the following with a semi-auto rifle with detachable mag: pistol grip, flash supressor(hider), bayoney lug, folding/telescoping stock, or "grenade launcher".

You can have one of them but not more, you have a choice. Makes a lot of sense don't it? If these things are so dangerous, why are they legal alone?

But still, we have semi-autos but you can have all of the above accessories with a manually operated firearm.

I never understood how the "straight-pull" works. IS it like a bolt action except with the charging handle in it's place?

I keep a couple of woven throws on my two barcoloungers in the room with the big screen TV, for when I'm entertaining lol. Even with the thermostat on 75, and the unit not blowing cold air, they STILL get cold...it's kind of a standing joke now.

My theory, based on extensive research, is that women have no circulation past their knees and elbows, and NONE in their butts. There is no object on this planet as cold as a woman's butt in the middle of the night. By now, you're probably laughing, 'cos you KNOW I'm right.

The only difference with one of ours is..

No hole drilled into the barrel
No gas tube
No gas rings
Single fire select trigger

We have to cock the rifle after ever shot to eject the spent round and load the next round

Not our choice but we make it work
