Re: Opps........I Got Mad!

Get pissed off by all means and rightly so, however the approach I adopt at clubs, parties and concerts is strictly non-physical... better take a couple of steps back than initiate a confrontation. What if he pulled a blade after you shoved him? Or had an even shorter temper than yours and he had a ...

Re: strangest thing you have ever seen

Personally I think that it is next to impossible for an animal with such a big biomass to remain undetected for so long... i mean ONE of them is bound to end up as roadkill one day will it? or shot by an over-zealous deer hunter... but that's just me. I passed through my phase of Cryptozoology Jeria...

Re: Got stolen from because I was stupid.

Well i guess your problem was that you did not hide it in a good place... leaves and other mulchy stuff is not such a good idea. I once dropped a coin on a pile of old seaweed. I literally saw it fall, but i couldnt find it even though i turned over 6 feet square. I know you must have been excited a...

Re: Fun in the shop, turning everyday junk into cool stuff

Those are a couple of seriously cool pieces... didn't know they are so (relatively) easy to make. If i may, i would like to suggest something for the handles. I did this with a broken knife and it has held up perfectly. Fashion a symmetrical handle with a groove hollowed out in the middle that will ...

Re: Digging out my crawl space...

First of all, before you do anything catastrophic, get an architect and an engineer to look the place over... Professionals that would have experience to tell you whether your idea is awesome or whether u will end up witha pile of rubble. Then do it anyway you like. Personally i'd do it in my spare ...

Re: Dog vs Cat

Meh, too different to be compared. I prefer dogs in the house and cats around it. Thats how it always was in the farms run by my family. Dogs protecting the homestead and cats wreaking havoc on the vermin population in the barns

Re: How to Protect Yourself From Scam Artists

Re: Keeping Track of Things

Ummmm.... your watch??? If 90% of the population is dead/undead, the lithium batteries in the watches lying around should provide you with a lifetime of timekeeping. Approximately of course, you won't need pin point timing in the PAW but you can occasionally reset ur watch to 12.00 using the sun/sti...

As a law student i can tell ya that there's a huge difference between the law on paper and the law in actual fact. I don't know about where you live but here in Malta defending your house at night from unauthorised murder is EXCUSABLE, during the day the charge is LESSENED BY 2 DEGREES. So i would'n...

Re: Gun in my face and attempted robbery

Its a win... and i'll say you handled it well since it became farcical.

Personally, if two scumbags like that tried to stick me up, they are welcome to my empty tupperware container. I think my life or the inconvenience of a knife in the ribs is worth much more than that.

Re: a question from an unusual place.

You ain't like us, you ain't one of us and your mere presence in the area is irritating... if you don't like our ZPAW version of recreation, kindly get the hell out.

Alternatively, let my hand gun answer the question with a short, sharp crack and discuss this turn of events later with my group.

As usual, excellent posts and siscussions, raptor.
