Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Do You Have Pets?

Maybe I have finally hit on that great home-based business that I have been looking for.  I already have all of my start-up materials.

Jesse - you're so sweet.  We are in a different situation.  We live in a subdivision and our jackhole neighbor across the street has always let his cats run free.  The big male prefers to spend the last 8 years hanging out in the flowerbeds in our backyard killing birds and launching sneak attack the kids and the dog.  A couple of years ago a stray female came along and they have produced about 5 litters.  Guess where they like to live?  In everybody's yard but the owners.  They are all feral and nasty.  We spoke to our neighbor and they basically said they could give a crap about their cat - they only got it for the kids - and the kids are older and don't care anymore.  He said they put scraps out for the cats and he would be more than happy to put some anti-freeze in with them.  ::)  The first summer a litter appeared a few of us got traps from the animal shelter and got most of them - but they are like rats - they are everywhere and they are aggressive.  They get in our (and our neighbors) garages and one of the little dumbasses jumped on our nextdoor neighbors grill while he was grilling. It just pisses me off that people think it's okay to just let their cats roam free - but we take responsibilty with our dog and had him neutered and keep him in the house, fence or on leash.

I just thought it was because Shane was such a dick and well on his way to being a mindless being devouring all who get in his way

And I love Chris Hardwick!  Just caught his stand-up on Comedy Central (I had no idea)

Halloween Pet Peeve - people who take their kids out Trick or Treating every year but fail to put/hand out candy.  Our whole family goes together and we leave a big bowl on the porch with a cute note - people seem to respect it and only take 2 or 3 pieces b/c there is always a bit of candy left when we get back - then I just dump the reserves in the bowl so people don't ring the bell when we are (trying) to settle the kiddos down for bed.  It is the same damn families every year.  >:(

"The Ups and Downs of Raising a Bipolar Child: A Survival Guide for Parents"; and
"A Clash of Kings" by George R R Martin; and
"Becoming a Woman of Extraordinary Faith: What If You Gave It All to God?" by Julie Clinton

But I don't believe that the fact that someone has been here longer or their post count is higher excuses rudeness either.

Boo.   Disagree most vehemently. 

Where's my frickin' geritol?

We excuse your rudeness not because you've been at JD a long time, but because you are a right old fart.

No worries  :)

Mace, I don't know where you were before April 30, 2012 but I really want to let you know that you don't seem to be getting the vibe here at JediDefender.  We are all collectors.  We all have our own styles of collecting.  We have, over the years, become friends. Many times, if we disagree with each other, we keep our mouths shut because that is what a polite and considerate person does.

For some reason, you have taken on Force Guy, who has been coming here since 2003, and has over 1100 posts. 

This thread, and your attitude, is just a drag. Who knows, maybe you're 15.  I don't know.  Just lighten up, and be friendly.  Life is too short to spend it picking fights.

That is good advice.  I agree with being polite and considerate - and that life is too short to be spent picking fights.  But I don't believe that the fact that someone has been here longer or their post count is higher excuses rudeness either.

I was just out of High School when she first went into space.  I remember the media coverage surrounder her shuttle flight.  She was truly an inspiration to me as a young woman.  R.I.P. Sally Ride.   :(

FINALLY got Comcast hooked up and now have access to AMC!  Does anyone know if they reply Walking Dead episodes?  I missed all of Season 2 and want to get caught up.  I know they had a marathon a few weeks back - anyone know if they have another on the way?  I thought someone said Comcast had this On Demand as well, but I don't see it under TV series.

not really sure, but I would hope AMC at least runs another marathon in Oct before season 3 starts Oct 24. Season 1 dvd is out now and season 2 comes out in early/mid Oct as well.

Season 2 DVD is set to release August 28th.  If AMC sticks to their usual patterns with their other series, they should run a marathon before Season 3 starts back up.

Never thought of calling it "my zombie" but I may start now.

I'd be careful about that if I were you.  Though the idea of it wandering around mindlessly with the sole purpose of it finding one thing rings true - I don't know that you would want to compare "your zombie" to something that walks around limp with its head drooping to the side all of the time  ;)

All the same, I'll get to work on my bodyarmor and collection of knives, stakes, swords. hammers and slingblades just in case ;)

Some folks call it a sling blade, I call it a kaiser blade, mm hmm.

He should know - he studied on it. Studied on it quite a bit.

FYI - I just found Season 1 at Redbox.  Got it home and thought it only had the last two episodes - turns out it is a double-sided disc ???

AMC is doing a marathon of Seasons 1 and 2 with a preview of Season 3 July 7-8th.  Would love to catch the first 1/2  of Season 2 again.
