One good reason is our avatars.

We've got guys with beer forts, aliens, weapons, inanimate objects copulating, babes, ammo, cars, alcohol, flags, planes, motorcycles, guitars, the king of Holland (I think), Soldiers of Fortune, kidnapping survivors, nooses, cartoons, dogs, cats, pigs, flightless waterfowl, hell somebody probably has the kitchen sink as an avatar.

And what does DU have?

Hillary Clinton or Dennis Kucinich.


ETA: I'm gonna update the avatar list dynamically. OK maybe not dynamically. Every now and then. DU doesn't do that. They are too busy whining and crying in their lattes.

We also have at least 3 brain cells. That's more than they have put together.

Because we know what rifle Al Pacino used in "Heat".

From thegunzone.com.

One of the most frequently asked questions on Rec.Guns and various Internet firearms forums concerns the ordnance used in the 1995 Michael Mann film, Heat, with particular interest in the weapon used by Al Pacino's "Vincent Hanna" to put "Michael Cheritto" (Tom Sizemore, who had a Galil) down after the Los Angeles bank takedown.

It is a Fabrique Nationale FNC 80 in 5.56 X 45mm (.223 Remington). A related note from Sweden's Daniel Johanson adds:

Sweden adopted the FN-FNC 80 as the CGA5D, with the Swedish army designation being the AK 5 ("AK" for automatkarbin, or Automatic Carbine).
(There is some anecdotal evidence that the late Messrs. Larry Eugene Phillips, Jr. and Emil Matasareanu used Mann's Heat as a "training film" for their spectacular but abortive attempt at robbing the North Hollywood, California branch of Bank of America on 28 February 1997.)

In the deserted drive-in theater, "Chris Shiherlis" (Val Kilmer) had a Heckler & Koch 91 in 7.62 NATO, a semi-auto version of HK's G3 battle rifle. (see "Letters" page.)

Also in that drive-in shoot-out, Sizemore's Cheritto takes out the driver of the Dodge pickup with a 12 gauge Benelli M3 Super 90 in its "pump," or manual, mode. The other assassin, would-be back-shooter, is carrying a Steyr TMP 9 X 19mm "buzz gun" as he attempts to sneak up on the waiting Neil McCauley (Robert De Niro).

In the opening action sequence involving the armored car take-down, two of Neil's crew are using full-auto short-barreled M-16s with the four position stocks chambered in 5.56MM NATO/.223 Remington.

Sizemore's Michael Cheritto whose tell-tale use of "Slick" as a generic nickname later betrays the Crew, carries an FN FAL battle rifle chambered in 7.62MM NATO as well as a good supply of 20 round magazines. (It is for the bank robbery that he switches to the Galil.)

The real-life ex-con (a graduate of Soledad, San Quentin, Folson, Vacaville, Susanville and Sierra in addition to countless local jails) turned-actor Danny Trejo (playing the imaginatively named Trejo) deploys with a folding stocked AK-47 variant of some sort, probably an AKM.

Other ordnance spotted throughout different parts of Heat include Neil's SIG-Sauer P220, Waingro's .45 ACP Star Megastar, a Ruger P90, Beretta 92FS in the hands of LAPD's under-gunned finest, and a Mossberg "Cruiser" behind the lobby desk with real-life LAPD Captain Tom Elfmont in the hotel where the police have Waingro stashed.

Our mods don't ban everyone with a viewpoint they disagree with.

Some people here will flame the hell out of them, but we don't ban them, I guess unless they're just blatantly trolling a lot.

How about just aesthetics?

The DU site is ugly as sin.

Calling somebody a Liberal will not get you Banned.
A photograph of you with a sign calling somebody a traitor will not get you Banned.
If in the photograph of you are stark, full frontal naked, a Mod will most likely (but not always) delete the lines containing the picture. The thread may be locked, but you won’t get banned.

But if you keep posting porn you will be asked nicely several times before getting suspended. And after several suspensions, and only then will you be banned.

Did I get the timeframes right?



Free Imbroglio!
