    I sell something on Amazon and it puts my shipping price at $3.99. Ok, I mean you ship a lot of stuff so I trust you.

    Someone buys my items and so I go to buy shipping and it starts out at $5.95. WTF? I automatically have to take a bath on shipping and can't do anything to fix it other than price the item up accordingly? That seems unfair to the consumer. Maybe that's why I never took that job in sales.

    guns. fuck guns. NO ONE NEEDS TO OWN AN INSTRUMENT OF DEATH. guns are the ONLY thing that a citizen can purchase that has no other purpose than to maim/kill. knives have purposes other than causing harm, guns don't. no one needs a gun unless they want to hurt other people. fuck that shit.

    I've never killed anyone nor do I intend to, but I have done target practice for years. Women are actually pretty good at it. Anyway, guns are so ingrained in American society and culture, they'll never go away; they're a part of our foundation, revolution, civil war, etc. Not to mention hunting. I just wish we had a better way to control them. But I've actually considered getting a concealed carry license lately.

    Discussion happening here:

    well said.
    i also love target practice, been doing this since i was a kid and stepdad would take us out 'plinking' at cans and milk jugs.
    i own firearms. nobody has access to these firearms, they are kept in a standing safe.
    i am a responsible firearm owner and a responsible firearm owner parent whom has taught her children from very young ages the NRA do's and don'ts of firearm safety rules.
    https://explore.nra.org/interests/safety-and-education/

    in our society a majority of individual firearm training and knowledge comes only after joining the armed forces.
    it is at this point in training the etiquette of this tool changes to a mentality of it being necessary to point at living breathing individuals as part of duty to protect this country. the very definition of this tool has at this point become a tool of death/maim/destruction; it is unfortunate that thusly a majority of gun users are taught as a first lesson to be ready to point and shoot at human targets.

    a firearm is a tool. tools have a purpose. unfortunately the misuse of some tools can inflict great harm. a large part of this misuse (imo) stems from how we are trained in using this tool, and/or a reflection of our first experience(s) with these tools.
    it isn't the tool, or the maker (that includes practical and proper instructions for the use of the tool)... it is the person who chooses to misuse the tool.
    take away the tool being misused, they will find another tool to misuse-
    a person's intentions are a person's intentions.
    i don't have answers for how to keep these kinds of incidences from happening, i wish i did.
    and yes, i have been effected by gun violence in more than one way on more than just a cpl of occasions, to include fatal tragedies (of loved ones, and the medical end of mass casualty incident) with persons choosing to misuse this tool.

    NRA we need more guns. would have made the latest situation so much worse we know you've bought half the republican party, only gun bill in congress is to legalize silencers, becuase that will help, because I guess not hearing you being shot at is better?

    I don't understand why we need "assault" type weapons (we don't, and the SCOTUS agrees), and I especially don't understand why those weapons need silencers (they don't, duh). The NRA thinks every fucking thing is a slippery slope; it's a possible slippery slope for the existence of the NRA but that's about it. They're only trying to maintain their own relevance at this point. $$$$$$$. The SCOTUS isn't going to make any more decisions re gun control, that NRA party is over. Forever.

    Anyway, there are now TWO WHOLE THREADS dedicated to this discussion, do we really need a third thread?

    a lot of our ground pounder enlisted and veteran service men and women develop varying degrees of hearing damage/loss due to the nature of their job. suppressors are another protective measure against permanent hearing damage/loss.

    our American Constitution 'safe guards' uprising against tyranny.
    having these types of tools available to the public (cause these same tools and worse will always be readily available to the private sector) help to keep the playing field level so-to-speak; the people vs state/gov't

    i'm sorry, but a firearm is not a tool, it is a weapon, and that is its only purpose. the ONLY thing firearms are made to do is hurt or kill other living things (whether they be people or animals).

    shooting also has its place alongside archery as an Olympic Sport

    One of my liberal Facebook pages attacked of the country singers who said he changed his mind about gun control after Sunday night. What pisses me off about that is that while we have the right to be angry, I don't think we should take this self-entitled attitude to those who have a change of heart about these things. As far as the people who do not waver from such horrible positions go, that's exactly what they expect of us.

    AGAIN, why the fuck is this being discussed in this thread other than maybe people are afraid of the Headlines forum? There are TWO THREADS (one devoted SOLELY to this subject) going strong re guns in the Headlines forum. If somebody started talking about NIN in the SYM forum, people would jump hurdles attempting to move the thread or correct the situation; but here we are, with the bullshit "pisses me off" stance, hiding out in the wrong thread.

    Accordingly, I'm responding in the right thread.

    People posting the shooters name and his face. I want him to die for no reason, I want him to die as a nobody. He doesn’t deserve celebrity.

    i started feeling weird/sick on monday. i threw up my entire dinner (and part of my lunch) in the evening, which was incredibly painful. i hadn't really thrown up in a while. i spent all day yesterday taking it easy, had some matzoh ball soup, etc. but then i threw up before bed again. i'm still feeling shitty today, and the most frustrating part is how much all the muscles in my neck hurt from throwing up

    This is more for everyone to laugh at then me being pissed off about (freaking everyone i tell finds it funny as fuck, even the dentist!)

    I managed to chip my tooth, which has resulted in needing Root Canal and a Crown (so i'm really poor right now) and i chipped it by...

    Sneezing. Yep, i sneezed and in my hand were the fragments of my tooth. And everyone thinks it's the funniest thing ever

    I'm sorry to hear about the tooth- that sucks (though there are more painful ways to a chip a tooth?)

    i had a colleague many yrs ago who fractured a c-spine vertebrae when she sneezed.
    bizarre things do happen in the most obscure, mundane ways.

    Why doesn't my phone cast to my Chromecast when there's no Internet? What kind of tin-foil-hat monitoring is going on that they have to send the data somewhere and then send it back to me?

    Also I hate "keep me checked in" boxes because they inevitably fail. And I don't mean after a couple weeks, I mean I've had to sign into website multiple times a day and check that box every time. Nope.

    Hey y'all check this bullshit out.
    I ordered 4 bottles of vape juice for which I paid $46 total. Each one cost $13, shipping and all.
    When the package arrived, it had three bottles in it. There was no explanation so I politely contacted the customer service and asked what happened. She said " oh I'm sorry, you should have got an email, we don't have that flavor anymore. " so I was like "ok, that's word, just send me another flavor." But she told me she couldn't do that and would give me store credit.

    so here is the kicker: they have me $11.55 in store credit. The thing I bought was $13. I politely asked the lady if there was any way she could like go ahead and give me $13 in store credit, seeing as that's how much fucking money we gave them. But now she won't respond to me.
    In this situation, it's the principle of the thing that infuriates me.

    Advertising that is just download buttons. I clicked a link to download an APK for the new Pixel launcher and the page had no fewer than six "Download here!" buttons. Which one is the right one? ffs.

    I've been a victim of stalking both in real life and on the Internet. The thing about stalkers is that they believe their behavior is perfectly normal. They don't think they're stalking someone, just like crazy people don't think they're crazy.

    If my package is gonna be in "pre-shipping" for a week, I don't even WANT the tracking number yet. Just tell me when it's actually moving and thus needs to be TRACKED. ))))

    (This is completely unrelated to the Sandbag ordeal, as I'm one of the veeery few that's received all my items in perfect condition...)

    Nah, I do want that anthology though! D: Right now I have a blu-ray set I ordered the other day (Outlaw Star!) and the big box set of Mogwai's new record both in pre-shipping, the latter having been that way for about a month. They sent out an email explaining the delay they're having with shipping, which I 100% understand and can't be frustrated with - but if getting the box sets so they can get them to USPS is the issue, then how in the dicks did USPS already have a tracking number for it?

    I mean, at this point I would've been better off buying one of the countless copies I've seen on store shelves by now.

    i think the way tracking numbers work is that they can be claimed by anyone who has the ability to ship things (i.e. they're generated by the USPS but you don't have to go to a post office to claim one, all you have to do is print a shipping label). so the distribution warehouse or whatever prints a shipping label for your package, which claims a tracking number (and e-mails that tracking info to you), but until the package actually gets into the hands of the USPS, it remains in pre-shipment limbo, sitting in the warehouse.
