I have a Winchester 30-30. I don't mix guns and drinking.


I have a 44-40


I have less risk of a sore shoulder.

Stop similar numbers of zombies though?
...you know, in these times of doom.

Oh and forgot to say... if there isn't Guinness on tap, Ill pass at staying at the pub.

I don't mind others but Guinness is my kryptonite, I like me a meal in a glass.

Well, if the world is ending then I would prefer to be here. I suppose.
Of course, I can't get there in time so just know that the rifle is loaded and ready.
Oh and rounds are on me, after all the world is ending. Biggest pissing match in the world right now and we'll see how that goes.
I likely was only really concerned for a minute, today, not sure why.
I'm ready either way it blows out.


P.S. Hope you are well

Good, because you're up next on pool and you've been nursing that pint all night, go get a couple of shots you lightweight.
It's the end of the world (not) FFS!!!!


EDIT

I find recent developments to be utterly unacceptable. If the years of my life so far have taught me anything, it is that repeating the same actions over and over again, expecting different results, is utterly insane. Some say that Einstein said it, its likely that he did not, but the fact remains that whomever spoke those words, or first wrote them down, was most assuredly on to something.

I personally find it hard to care about the potential for World War Three, because the chances are that unlike the first two world wars, it will not be a war which is years long, or in which invasion is a concern. The chances are that if it occurs at all, it will wipe out a nation as small as mine in hours, not days, or weeks, or months, leave alone years. Its a threat so horrific and enormous that nothing I can do at my end could combat it, so fear of it is pointless, since the only useful thing about fear is that instinct to react in defence, or escape a threat. One can neither run from nuclear war, nor defend against it, nor survive it in good order, either nationally or individually.

What I do care about is the stain on my nations reputation, that yet another example of an escalating proxy war we paid the players to take part in, seems to be on our horizon. I refuse, point blank to accept that this is a fair, just, or noble use of my nations resources, especially when we are about to embark as a nation on one of the most important and enormous changes to our way of life in a generation, by way of Brexit. I do not believe the things our government have said about the chemical weapons use in Syria, or that they care much about the use of those weapons, especially since my nations government cleared the sale of chemical weapons to Syria, which British and British based companies were all too happy to go ahead and take advantage of.

Both the Assad regime and the terrorists who have been penetrating the nations rebel groups for years, are supported by our government materially, and the terrorists that we have been told we should fear for decades, have only been a threat because they have been funded, supported and trained by operatives of America, Britain, elements from within Mossad and other intelligence groups. With these things in mind, accepting the word of our government, whose members have been complicit in the near industrial termination of innocent lives in the Middle East for a very long time, is not just an exceptionally ignorant thing to do, but damned near criminal in and of itself. My nations people deserve better than to be represented by amoral, murderous thugs who are more interested in making money for the already wealthy, and spending the money of regular hard working folk in order to do it I might add, than they are in ensuring that their citizens are not misrepresented by their actions.

Not a one of us, not a single Briton, no matter how against the war, or the current government they may be, can legitimately wash their hands of this, or suggest that the actions of our government are "not in our name". They most certainly are being made in our name, and those actions will stain us all, and damned well SHOULD, if we are prepared to permit these actions to continue. I am sick of the apathy that has fallen like a dread fog over this country, the hopelessness that even the most geopolitically aware amongst us feel, and the ignorance with which most of the rest of the country, the willful ignorance with which the rest of the country treats these matters. Between those who refuse to accept the fact that our government has been, is now, and intends to continue to be complicit in what I would describe as decades of war crimes, and those who see the writing on the wall and simply haven't the stomach to act to stop that writing from becoming prophecy fulfilled, it seems that there are too few prepared to actually make a difference, to make any difference at all.

This is wrong, I want it to stop, these for profit proxy wars must cease, for all time.

Excellent choice sir

Couple of cheeky jager bombs in red bull as well?


a reply to: TrueBrit
Well written post and I share your sentiments, but really, what can any of us mere citizens do about it now? I petitioned my MP before the last vote to bomb Syria, thousands of us did, all ignored.
Now, never mind all that, what'll it be? You strike me as an ale man, or possibly a fine brandy?
You're up next on pool as well

House ale it is then...and yep, tails never fails


Now you've got plenty of time to ponder WWIII while I seven ball you.
Pity Trump and Putin can't just decide things over a pint and a game of pool, my money would be on the Don, I reckon he's a right hustler.

Haha behave, I'm taking it easy so I can still hold a coherent argument with old Stan in the corner when he's ranting about doom while reading his Daily Mail. I'll move onto the hard stuff when Britain fires it's first tomahawk missile, and saying that, see dodgy Frank when he gets in, he's running a book on who will fire first, UK, US, or France. I've put a fiver on UK, decent odds as well.

Decent choice for the band



As for 4.7 being weak.

When the balloon goes up, I will be hitting this beauty.
