You'll have to do better than that. That setting does nothing for the cars. Might as well be the wall mart lot.

Hmm, there seems to be something missing in your picture. What could it be? Oh wait, I know...

Good for you holding on to your principles and prosecuting them.  I applaud you.  It's a scary world and someone like you who has the wherewithal that others covet are in a tough spot. 

 

It sucks to be honest.  Our world is going in the wrong direction.

 

Just got back from vacation and found a broken window (kids threw a rock through it) on my trailer, then two days later someone stole one of my deep cell trailer batteries.  Pisses me off.

Just out of curiosity about how many other forums do you frequent.

This just p!sses me off. How can people be such complete d!cks?? Gawd, sometimes I simply hate the human species. We like to think that individual people are OK, and that it's only in packs that we become savages. But that's simply not true. Packs of reasonable human beings are composed of reasonable individuals. Packs of savages are composed of savages. It sort of reminds me of watching episodes of the Sopranos. The characters were portrayed as both humans with real emotions and also as ruthless savages. Or the classic scene from Good Fellas:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


But back to your situation - this is just not right. It's a clear sign that our species is on the wrong path. While part of the society is killing themselves trying to make things better for themselves and for others, the rest are trying to take what they didn't work for, and then blame everyone and everything when they don't get what they want. I could never be a panhandler - and I simply do not buy the "you've never been hungry" arguments. If we're talking about starving Ethiopians, I would agree with the concept - but not someone asking for dollars at a gas station in the USA. IMHO, there are only two reasons someone is panhandling in America: 1) They have a mental illness and have been conditioned to use panhandling as a means of survival, or 2) They consciously choose to panhandle as their means of survival. Both are the fault of society - in the case of the former, society is taking the easy way out and choosing to ignore the fact that the population of mentally-ill people is significant and needs to be dealt with in a systematic (and in many cases institutional) manner. In the case of the latter, society is is ALSO taking the easy way out and choosing NOT to try to discern the difference between the truly mentally ill and the people that are simply leeches and need to be kicked in the @ss. We'll never be perfect at figuring out where to draw the line - but NOT being willing to draw the line is helping no one.

I refuse to apologize for the human species, because quite frankly, I'm not sure the people you are talking about *are* part of the same species we are. Other than biology, I see little evidence that they are.

Guns and fender benders. What a wonderful military you've go there.

Just wait until Greenland invades Canada - THEN you'll be crying for our robotic jeepsters to come and save your Canadian bacon.

At 8 MPH, it shouldn't take more than 4 or 5 years to arrive. Until then, hold them off with snowballs and free Molson... tongue.gif

I'm a little late to the privacy discussion, I believe; I've been on a trip back to Wisconsin for a few weeks and haven't gotten on Head-Fi much. With nearly 500 pages of content in this thread, it's hard to imagine that somebody truly dedicated couldn't put together a picture of where you live and who you are. Unfortunately, some badly-adjusted or mean-spirited people might just go that far in pursuit of selfish ends. It's a shame that you can't post as often or with as much detail as you might wish, and you're definitely in the right to go after any threats legally and to delete some details that might lead others down that path.

 

I might be rambling a bit, but some people just make me angry.
