    There are a surprising number of online stores that don't let you filter on obvious characteristics.

    I'm not a gun expert but aren't Desert Eagle .50's huge with lots of stopping power? Shooting from a foot away just seems beyond dumb.

    Yes.

    That's a .50AE vs a .32. The .50AE has muzzle energy almost 5x a 9mm round, and it actually has a higher muzzle velocity than a 9mm (I think a 9mm would have gone through the book too at that range).

    I don't understand why you wouldn't test this without a person behind it first.

    I am visiting famly in Wisconsin seems like every third television ad is PSA announcement saying not to do drunk driving act. I guess I kind of get that I mean it is Wisconsin after all people like to put themselves to trunken. But then I'm also seeing hell of PSA announcements telling people not to use dip lest they get cancer in their mouths. I'm like "What the hell is it still 1975 here?"

    Remember in Wisconsin your first dui counts as a moving violation and not a criminal offense - only state that's true.

    That would be the less sophisticated western part of the state. No coincidence that its closest to MN.

    Okay still visiting famly in Wisconsin am being subjected to hell of country music. I don't want to offend fans of this genre of music, but I also got to speak my truth the sounds I am hearing from the radio are pert near unbearable. Half the singers have what must be contrived, exaggerated southern accents like Larry the Cable Guy. And the lyrics seem like they were written simply by mixing and matching various words that evoke southern or rural lifeways. I seriously can't understand how anyone enjoys this stuff.

    Don’t be silly. If it were 1975 dose Rams would still be playing in Los Angeles.

    Websites that think autoplaying videos on websites are a useful or a positive feature to force on users. I mean, it's cool if I am only looking at one website tab and intend to watch a video on said website (bloomberg is one culprit that comes to mind). But, I normally have multiple tabs open at once and then have to (in a panic) look for where the offending unexpected audio is coming from. Very irritating when I am already listening to something else.

    Goes double for sites that automatically roll over to the next video (and change the article/headline to go with it). By the time you make it to that tab, you have no idea what you actually meant to load.
