How you coming on turning in your guns and learning to smoke pot?

    Four pages and both Fallon and Shih have weighed in.

    This thread either needs to pick up some speed or be left by all to slowly die.

    Poll, anyone?

    That being the case, the 96% would fall into the 1% side leaving us with 97% for amnesty and 3% against. A complete landslide for amnesty.

    Totally bad logic. The 96% are for the status quo, which is Chris decides

    Well, this started off as a really interesting thread. Too bad we couldn't keep it that way. (Rick_C 2009, Classic RTF)

    He is on vacation, it is hot and I am sure beer has been consumed. Hard to do ciphering with a good buzz on.

    Personally, I like variety. If someone who "doesn't know anything," gives me a good idea that just happens to work, I'm as happy as a hooker at the high roller table. I think it's true for any discipline. Of course a bit of salt in a fresh wound adds a bit of entertainment, as well.

    What the heck is keeping you so busy in the N. British Isles that you don't have time for a doggy forum? Anyway, have a safe journey back. I'm sure there is alot of value in your observations.

    As worthless as the amnesty poll. Doesn't matter! So move on and post up some training threads if everyone is supposedly out training.

    So true....reminds me of the good ole days of the "Bait O Lympics" where it became a sport to annoy certain whiney, thin-skinned members, mostly internet heros, mainly by calling them out on their, ahem, exaggerations/resume padding. You got a bronze medal if your slap resulted in one of them tattling on you or complaining about you to a moderator. Silver medals were for being threatened with lawsuits (rallying cry of white trash everywhere "I'll SUE YOU!") and the Olympic Gold Medal winning Master Baiters were the ones that received death threats.
