Zuckerberg Only Eating Animals He Personally Kills

Shabazz Rabbinowitz Re:Not a big deal (544 comments)

...Big deal, get a hunting rifle and go get a deer, moose, elk...

Pffft, a rifle. A real man goes into the woods naked and unarmed, and kills his prey by ripping out its throat with his teeth.

And a real woman tells him to stay the hell out of the house until he's hosed himself off.

Spray-On Liquid Glass

Shabazz Rabbinowitz You've got me? Who's got you? (293 comments)

If nothing sticks to it, how does it stay on?

"What's that?"

"It's a liquid that will dissolve anything."

"What're ya gonna keep it in?"

Shabazz Rabbinowitz Re:The Strategic National Plutonium Reserve (616 comments)

...I don't know a whole lot about Nuclear Physics... [long post]...

I was all set to mock you mercilessly but then you go and make some cogent comments. On top of which your name does not include letters in place of numbers.
