  1. cc.com Duel

    In reading the posts around here, it's pretty apparent that there's a lot of folks just don't get along. Instead of an all-out gun battle, I'd like to suggest we get together to paint ball the piss out of each other. Alternatively, we could rent 2 sumo suits and go at it that way. DFA against Trask in a sumo suit would maybe even be worth charging a cover. Whatever the case, let's make it happen. Either that or I'll see if we can get some folks on the Tough Guy competition on FX. What would make an interesting duel format and who would the combatants be? P.S. Thanks DFA for pointing out the spelling mistake.
  2. argentina and chile

    Las Lenas rocks. I was there 4 years ago. Sweet fossil fields at 12,000 ft. Nice caves to hang out in and drink booze. Smelly hot springs to drink beer in if you don't mind all the mud and decaying buildings. Loads of opportunity to lose your money in the casino. UFO nightclub full of talent from B.A. Tasty lomo completos and Quilmes beer at the base. Malbec wine and mate with the locals. And of course...sick skiing once they dig out the Marte ski lift or you get your arse on the ski cat.
  3. Scotland

    Yes. It should be fine then.
  4. Scotland

    Fort William is cheap. Although with the exchange rate, probably not so cheap just now. There's a lot of options from youth hostel to hotel and of course local B&Bs which are typically great. You can get around on the bus in the local area but a car is probably best. Ben Nevis in Winter can be hairy. Don't underestimate conditions. I know it's not very high but the weather can change quick in there. I'm going home next Friday for 10 days. When are you going?
  5. Are you ready for some football?

    The new NFL season gets underway tonight. Gotta admit that I'm excited. Go Seahawks!!!!
  6. Guiding Restless Native

    Deep man. That's about the most profound thing I heard since Bush said, "Fool me once..."

    Automatically Generated Foreign Troll Reply: Is this some kind of fuckin' therapy thread? Your shrink told you to atone for your errant ways by 'fessing up and reaping the near certain affirming thumbs up stories that validate your being? You lot suck you soft bunch of pansy yanks!!!
  8. fakes

    Automatically Generated Incendiary Comment: This story may be a fake but at least it didn't result in 1000 American GI's dying and countless thousands of Iraqis. Your President told a lie far worse than this little story. Democracy in this country has been corrupted and the only thing that could persuade me otherwise would be the impeachment of the liar and resultant jail term for him and the other orchestrators of this fraudulent war.
  9. Gun question

    In light of the automatic weapons ban about to expire… I have a good buddy who thinks that civilians ought to be allowed to own the same weapons as police. I didn’t question the right to bear arms or anything like that. I just asked if it was necessary for anyone to be allowed to own any weapon they please. To paraphrase, he indicated that he needed the same firepower as the cops should the U.S. ever become a police state a la Nazi Germany or Fascist Italy. I thought that was quite a marginal view, but now I’m wondering how prevalent this train of thought is?
  10. Groin strain

    I have an annoying groin strain on my left side that just won't go away. Each time i think it's healed up, I go and play soccer and I'm back to square one. Anybody got some good advice or stretches they do?
  11. Alcohol and nalgene

    If weight's not an issue, you might wanna think about a Thermos. Personally, I use my little metal hip flask on day trips. For longer, I second the gatorade bottle...these boys obviously drink more than me and capacity's clearly an issue with the wee hip flask.
  12. Gun question

    So, should regular civvies be allowed to have the same firepower as law enforcement?
  13. Richard Daley = Big Brother

    Sorry Greg, but the U.S. has higher violent crime than most other "civilized" nations.
  14. Richard Daley = Big Brother

    Most major cities in the UK have had CCTV for years. It's a good thing if you ask me (assuming it's used relatively responsibly). Mainly it was used to cut down the amount of yob violence cities had to endure during the weekend binge sessions by kids. However, it was also a good tool for catching some IRA terrorists back in the day as well as other kinds of crime spotting.
  15. Decided

    Stunning development. Perhaps there's a chance afterall that we might see a regime change in the U.S? I haven't been holding out much hope for that bloke Kerry. This could be the pivotal point in the whole election...
  16. Are you ready for some football?

    up somewhere high, forced bivy...i'd take them anytime and curl inside their rolls of flab alternatively, 15 pints and beer goggles the thickness of milk bottles...bob's yer uncle.

    that's fricking awesome!
  18. Judges

    Yes, you're right. It's only used on serves.
  19. Latest World Cup qualifier results

    Scotland 0 - Slovenia 0 -We're shite and we know we're shite. I wish they'd fuckin' fire Berti Vogts. What's a German doing coaching a bunch of Scots anyway? Poland 1 - England 2 - Lucky English bastards. My wife will be pissed off now too. Wales 2 - Rep. Ireland 2 - Quite a night in Cardiff. Three red cards and 4 goals. Switzerland 1 - N. Ireland 1 - Decent result for the Irish after the heavy defeat at the weekend.
  20. Judges

    This kind of system has been in place at Wimbledon for years.
  21. Are you ready for some football?

    Projected by most to be the worst team in football this season.
  22. Are you ready for some football?

    Tell everyone how you really feel Dave...
  23. Boston Globe - Bush went AWOL

    Couple of things Greg. First is that I don't know of any criminal charge against Kerry. Second is that on the whole, Kerry seems like a far more interesting character than Bush. He played guitar, released an album with his buddies, went to war, does kite-boarding, snow boarding, cycling etc. My last point has bugger all to do with the election but whatever.
  24. Today's Politics Headline

    Electras Controversy Surrounds Kerry Boston, MA An album released by a band called The Electras during the 60s has been selling on sites such as eBay for as much as $2,000. The reason? Senator John Kerry was the bassist on the less than hit record. However, recent reports have surfaced that the band may not have actually been playing their instruments on the album and were in fact lip-synching a la Milli Vanilli style. John Doe, Democrat spokesman said, “These rumors that Senator Kerry was not playing the bass guitar are completely fabricated. The Senator has funk and mad riffs that the Republican smear machine can only dream about. Milli Vanilli stooped to great depths to conceal their lack of musical talent, although it must be said that were great dancers at least. To suggest that Senator Kerry would adopt such underhanded tactics in an age free of the pressure of MTV awards is utter nonsense.” Scott McLellan, Republican spokesman claimed, “I have listened to the album and it’s quite clear to me that no rich whitey could ever have played that throbbing bass. That shit is off the hook and quite frankly, dope! Senator Kerry needs to step forward to quell these rumors and it seems that the only way the American public will be satisfied is if he forms a band reunion and plays a live gig somewhere – preferably on live T.V. Incidentally, President Bush was the real deal back in the day and was known to panhandle back in Texas belting out country classics such as Stand By Your Man.” It remains to be seen what effect this will have on an election only 7 weeks away.
