I suppose the time outs from SETI@Home are wonderful opportunities to perform more searchs on Goodsearch.
Keep up the good work of contributing to the project by finding so many ways of creating free time for yourself to use Goodsearch as much as you do. :)

A couple of guys I worked with at the phone company were hardcore model builders.
Mostly WWII tanks and planes, but they also built a whack of NASA stuff and of course Star Wars and Star Trek.
Many pieces were on display at the Legion and at the library for quite a while.

Thanks for sharing your hobby Bob.
I really like the sailing vessels.

So clearly, this stunt driver thing is just another falsehood passed off as part of the alternative reality you choose to live in.

So many of your posts are like this. They are so filled with distortions and deceptions that you make it impossible to take anything you say seriously.

Well, if the creators of these forums didn't want people posting lies and made up facts, they should have made a rule that says no one can lie or make up facts.

I was sliding sideways at about 50mph throgh the ditch and hit it dead on.
The car had flipped over in a 180 and then abruptly came down of the roof.
You could not have scripted it better. Years later, I learned that you could do this on purpose for a living...LOL.

I drove stunts for many years after that. And not one was as spectacular as thet first event.


msattler wrote the above claim.
That's awesome man!
Can you tell us what movies you are credited in as a stuntman?
Of course, if you didn't do movie work, you must be on YouTube for your stunt driving at county fairs and demolition derbies.
No one can spend years as a stunt driver and have no film.

I don't see Chris S making excuses for msattler.
As a matter of fact, Chris S calls bull$&!T toward msattler on his made up facts quite often.

You forgot to allow funding for the legal fees you'll run up by offering music online that you don't own the rights to.

Well, actually quite hard to imagine that first cop action even if he would think that the child holds real gun will be to shoot into the child... Really hard...

Been there - 10 Year old - Real Gun.

Decided not to shoot, and place MY LIFE at greater risk.

Ethical Decision. Not Legal Decision.

Question: Would my decision have been different if he was 14 - 16 - 18 - 25 years old?

Would YOUR decision be different?

What is the 'Cut off' age, if any?


You seem to have a been there done that story for every situation.

The right wing lunatic fringe always seems to get much more active in the few years leading up to a US presidential election.
The past few years have been rather quiet in here but the righties are trending upward in their attacks and criticisms.
Looking forward to a spirited few years leading up to the election.
Nice to know some of the unemployed right wing whackos are finding work in a republican run cubicle maze filled with computers, reference books, talking points and suggested items to discuss online.

As a recently retired Associate Professor at a Local University in Miami, after a Career as an NYPD Detective, and prior Service in Vietnam:

Have found that those Serving in the Armed Forces and Police Departments, are MORE Tolerant, than those Employed at University's of Higher Education.



I believe what you really mean to say is they are more tolerant of republicans.

LOL
Thanks Chris...
Oh yes, we've all seen her in action and it's quite evident she needs no help defending herself.
I simply put myself in her camp to show my moral support while I offer to hold her coat because I can't get my blood pressure elevated arguing with the lunatic fringe.

My score is 36%

Though your conscience is in the right place you also have a pragmatic streak and generally aren’t afraid to do your own dirty work! You’re no shrinking violet - but no daredevil either. You generally have little trouble seeing things from another person’s perspective but, at the same time, are no pushover. ‘Everything in moderation – including moderation’ might sum up your approach to life.

This thread is a good example of why I've had to stay away from the forums these past couple of years.
There are a select few friends here that know what my situation has been and have shown great compassion toward me. Es99 is one of those few.

At the risk of overwhelming my medications by getting mixed up in another pointless argument based on personalities and not truth or facts, I feel the need to attempt to put this back on track.

THIS IS A THREAD ENTITLED "Racist? [yes you are].
It is not entitled "We Hate Esme and We Like Arguing With Her!"

The thread is based on the premise that everyone is racist. The issue is whether we are going to deny this fact of our tribal past or take the necessary steps to get beyond the racism by recognizing it for what it is and taking actions to end it.

Those of you piling onto Es99 for whatever reason, are off topic. Stop wasting your time acting like Howler Monkies and explore the topic of the thread.

That's why I called it "EXTREME"

The point I'm making is they are chipping away freedoms with every incident and at some point there will be nothing left.

Regarding the surveillance state, anyone paying even the smallest amount of attention knows that the increase in state monitoring of our private communications, our activities and our thoughts is already contracted out to the other partners.

Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States created an entity called Five Eyes.

Each individual country has laws that prevent the governments from spying on their own citizens. To get around such silly hindering laws, they formed this alliance of spy agencies.
Each member country spies on citizens of the other four members then passes the information back to the governments who's citizens are being watched.

Our leaders continue to speak publicly to us about our wonderful freedoms and democracies and how they must be protected from outside attacks. The dangers to our democracy and freedom are not coming from outside sources.
The danger is from within.

"When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross."
