Violence rools, guns are cool and we've got guns, in our school



Yeah, hedge is a sh#t slinger... but when is the last time you saw him get all butt hurt when someone gives it back?

Hedge, stay out of my threads... ahaaaaahaahahahaaaaa!

Is the security on the sets, or is it personal body guards following them around at the grocery store? HUGE difference.

I used to work in the same building where Oprah had an office.

Maple Street in Beverly Hills.

My coworkers would see her from time to time.

I only saw her once, from a a distance, but many of my coworkers had seen her, walked past her in the hallway, rode in the elevator with her.

She's a billionare - celebrity doesn't get any bigger than Oprah.

As far as I know, she was never alone, but she did not have an army surrounding her either.

It's both now, especially in less safe countries...

We weren't talking about those either...

Like I said Joe doesn't know all this because he's editing porn in Simi

bring the Beanie lover, West with ya.

As someone who knows someone who might be Hispanic, I find that racially insensitive.

I went back at least a hundred posts, and saw only you and jghedge saying anything like "socal is just like Mexico". Focus?

Would you agree there's a difference between a "similarity", and "just like" ?

Can you at least see that?

If you want to quibble, fine. And it's not just a similarity, it's "most like than any other country".

Remember, this was about travel advisories regarding safety, not culture.

yup. I did.

edit(s0 I don't bump this thread). yup. you did hedge. what if you took the gun stat numbers, removed handguns from the US to match Canada, then gun numbers are even (we have 1/3 the # of guns per capita as you - but all long guns) For the number of long guns you have, 4% of crime is done with that. Almost all of our gun crime is done with long guns. Which means that if the US just gave up handguns they would have a better gun death rate than canada, no?

Would you feel safer walking down the streets of San Bernardino? Or Vancouver?

Washington D.C., or Ottowa? Which is safer at night? Apples-to-apples, as both are national capitols.

America's just more violent. Any way you want to measure it. And we should be. It's in our genetics.

Different mindset in Canada. Any law-abiding Canadian who wants a gun can get one. Their gun violence rates are lower partly because fewer Canadians want guns, and even fewer feel the need to use one.

I gotta give it to Hedge for endurance. I left the computer for 9 hours to go hiking, bouldering, and a Yoga class followed by dinner with my beautiful wife. So I come back to take a peek, and he's been here the whole time.

FACT: That is unreal. Credit where credit is due, the guy sticks to his guns! Oh wait, that can't be right...

Their gun violence rates are lower ALMOST CERTAINLY because...

of lower population densities.
