So like yeah... I've listened to many opinions looked at a lot of stats and yada yada
No, the hunters I know do not use M16's to hunt deer, but I know a lot of collectors who have things they never take out of their original packaging. Some ppl collect action figures, some ppl collect guns. Some guns are never even loaded let alone fired.
Yes, taking something out of circulation reduces the number of guns lawfully owned and obtained out of there, but the black market won't stop selling whatever is banned.
I think Chris Rock was onto something with his bullets should cost $5000 apiece. It's not just guns killing people, its a fuck load of bullets. A gun with no ammo is a club.
People always ignore the second word in gun violence. That's too bad because what we really have is a violence problem.

Read the article: http://ourworld.unu.edu/en/plastic-to...
The Japanese company Blest has developed one of the smallest and safest oil-to-plastic conversion machines out on the market today. It's founder and CEO, Akinori Ito is passionate about using this machine to change the way people around the world think about their plastic trash. From solving our landfill and garbage disposal issues to reducing our oil dependancy on the Middle East, his machine may one day be in every household across Japan.
While holding up a bag of trash, he states, "It's a waste to throw away, isn't it? This is a treasure."

Wow. This can be used as a spray on solar panel. Imagine spraying this stuff all over your roof and hooking a couple small wires to it.. Solar electricity that easily. I wonder how well it would weather tho.

I'm from NY. I lost a former classmate in the attack on the towers on 9/11. I am an atheist. I hate the religious nutters whatever deity they pray to, they are delusional. I do not want myself, my family friends or my country dragged into some retarded war over whose old time piece of shit book is correct. News flash to the christians and muslims: yer all wrong. Every last one of you brainwashed assholes is wrong.
We have freedoms in this country. Ya wanna burn a book, well have at it. All you are really doing is taking action on your ignorance and/or hate.
Keep in mind that book burning has never accomplished anything other then the loss of history and culture. From the crusaders to the conquistadors; they burned away the history of entire cultures in the name of their deity. We cannot learn from history (and thus be doomed to repeat it) if the tomes keeping that history are burned to ashes.
Obviously the christer organizing this tard fest is only doing it for attention. He's mentally ill, just as loony as the assholes that strap on bombs and blow themselves to smithereens cuz they think they'll get virgins in their afterlife. People like these just want a holy war, at least they think they do.
imagine no electricity or water running to your house, no food or medicine being shipped to local stores and hospitals, no fucking toilet paper to wipe your ass -that is what a war zone is. You want that? Really? If so then by all means please move to the middle east and go have your war over there. I don't want it here.
I see these fucktards on tv burning my flag because a handful of my countrymen are fucking assholes and it pisses me off. I'm tired of tolerating religion; personally I like being able to flush a shit away and having access to antibiotics when I get a sinus infection.
I would love to see a countrywide protest by atheists. We all go into libraries and book stores and move bible/quran/torah into the fiction section. No matches required.
Khellendross liked a post in a topic by Kite in Backwards Society
Was just thinking about how backwards some things really are in life
like if your sick you have to walk to the back of the supermarket to buy medicine, yet if you wish to buy cigarettes to poison yourself and everyone around you it is right at the front door
How banks charge the poor for not having money and reward the rich by giving them more money
How if you want to get a home phone line installed, you have to phone up to arrange it
how you need to show id to get a replacement to your ID you lost
that you are better off being unemployed then on a low wage
anyone got anything to add

The Treaty of Tripoli
I'll Quote Article 11 from it. The above link is to the entire thing.
So no. This nation was NOT founded on Christian values, or upon the Christian religion at all.

Republicans voted against even debating the DISCLOSE Act Tuesday, blocking the attempt to blunt the impact of the unpopular court ruling that allows corporations spend limitless dollars on U.S. elections.

H2O: Dangerous Chemical!
A student at Eagle Rock Junior High won first prize at the Greater Idaho Falls Science Fair, April 26. He was attempting to show how conditioned we have become to alarmists practicing junk science and spreading fear of everything in our environment. In his project he urged people to sign a petition demanding strict control or total elimination of the chemical "dihydrogen monoxide." And for plenty of good reasons, since:
it can cause excessive sweating and vomiting
it is a major component in acid rain
it can cause severe burns in its gaseous state
accidental inhalation can kill you
it contributes to erosion
it decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes
it has been found in tumors of terminal cancer patients
He asked 50 people if they supported a ban of the chemical.
The title of his prize winning project was, "How Gullible Are We?"
Forty-three (43) said yes,
six (6) were undecided,
and only one (1) knew that the chemical was water.
He feels the conclusion is obvious.
This was found on the newsgroup: rec.humor.funny
Why do people not know what water is? Better yet how do people not know what water is? (...I fear the answers to these questions...)
