i'll be impressed when you make the gun instead of just the holster.



Been talking about making a real cannon for a while now.

No, you work in the streets. There's a difference.

Well, I enjoy woodworking and am currently in the process of building a Mantel for my gf. Working with Coffeebean for the top and all the trim. I find it's relaxing. The compliments I get when people look as some of the things I've made is the payoff. After that, I'm going to build my own coffee and end tables.

I built a PC once but uh, Recently it seems to be playing up, granted most of it was very badly put together and held on with duct tape but somehow I seem to be the only one who got the motherboard with no MAC address in the CMOS or Flash and when I turned it on recently there was an alarming chopping sound coming from the heat sink, I think it's eating the processor in some other dimension or something. It also replaced my radiator when it was turned on, It was only a Pentium D but it managed to generate vast amounts of heat from nothingness.

So after all the calamity of building PC's and how badly I seem to make a mess of it I decided to save the world from the terribleness and not build any more. Or... anything else, I seem to fail at cooking recently too, usually burning myself three to six times per meal made :(

So I don't get such satisfaction

Yea, don't know if it's what skyhawk (btw, when do I get to feel comfortable calling him Chris? :P )had in mind but I really enjoy cooking too. I made the turkey this thanksgiving and everyone raved about it. My gf's mother even made a point to call me the next day and tell me that even after re-heating, the Turkey was just as moist as it was on Thanksgiving. I don't claim to be a chef but I do enjoy pushing the limits when I have the freedom to. I will break my arm patting myself on the back though when I say that this was a really good bird this year and very juicy. I'm not much of a turkey eater. Or any poultry for that matter. I don't know, I guess it just tastes fowl to me ;). But I actually ate more turkey than ham this year. So not so much on the topic of building something but since a lot of people brought up cooking, I though I might chime in and toot my own horn. :D

My mobo is pre-production Intel, so it also had no MAC address as well, and no programmed AA number, and the programs that shipped with the board, as well some of the drivers don't recognize it (it is on loan, free). Had a friend use an Intel proprietary program to program the MAC and AA into the board, it was quite interesting.

I do not understand why you would want a concealed gun license? What possible reason is there, apart from exercising those same rights (use it or lose it kinda thing) to do that? The fact that it's concealed indicates that you'd rather the people around you didn't know you had one, therefore it's not really demonstrating anything political. And you presumably don't conceal a weapon in order to take it to the range and back, right? So this is for hiding under your shirt when you go to the supermarket. I must be missing something in the logic, but I'm open to being shown the light.



There is no legitimate reason. It's just that when you have a gun you feel a strange sense of power, the way god must feel when he's holding a gun.
