Why the First Cowboy To Draw Always Gets Shot

jred Re:Corollary (398 comments)

Have you ever shot an Uzi? LEO friend of mine has one. The iron sights are bad enough that you might as well not aim. Point it towards their feet & let it spray upwards & pray.

Installing Linux On Old Hardware?

jred Re:My $.02 (507 comments)

If he can get DSL running with X, couldn't he then run the browser off another box? Seems like it's be just powerful enough to be a dumb X terminal.

Russia Develops Spaceship With Nuclear Engine

jred Re:United States Intelligence Drain..... (297 comments)

You're preaching to the choir, here. I didn't say I agreed with it. There's a lot of things that go on in the world that I don't agree with. It's just the way it is.

Rocket scientists are expensive, dance teachers are cheap. The classes cost the same. You do the math.

Dogs To Sniff Out Smokers

jred Re:Designated Smoking Area? (136 comments)

Yeah! Let's not forget those freakin' coffee breaks, either! Dadgum caffeine addicts!!! Oh, and FOOD, if they can't wait 10 hours to eat, they don't deserve to work!!!!

Whatever. As long as I have to wade past the crowd at the coffee pot to go outside in the cold rain to take my 5 minute break (once in morning, once at lunch, once in afternoon... you know, breaks I'm legally entitled to... anyway,) once I don't have to smell burned freaking popcorn... every day, and once I don't have to smell that god-awful perfume from down the hall...

Fuck it, I'm pissed now & I'm taking my break early. You can blame yourself entirely. In fact, I'll take a TEN minute break & smoke TWO!!!

You know, I'm glad Obama got elected. He's a smoker, maybe we'll get to retain some smoker's rights for a CHANGE!
