Thanks for the nod. *hug*

Yeah, the currents on ATS are unpredictable.

You get lucky.

LOL.

A lot of it has to do with how fast someone tries to discredit whatever the thread is about. ATSers are so gullible sometimes.

Grace, this is 100% offtopic, but will you be bringing your avatar to our colony?


Hmm...I'm not so sure. My little Phillipine Tarsier freaks some people out. One guy even had nightmares over him. And then, there are certainly those who would jump at the chance to grill him and eat him. If I do bring him along, I'm concealing him in a hidden pocket.

My son's LOVED him!

We have owls in our yard, and they thought he was an owl and they got mad every time I scrolled the page away from your post.

But now that you mention it............ you think he tastes like chicken?

Not only do you qualify -- you're almost overqualified compared to some of the people who tried to gain entry offering nothing more impressive than...ahem...self-claimed extraordinary biological functions. Just don't mistake my avatar for game, OK?

The big one that I think of is earthquakes, even if you don't react to well to the rest, you can usually live where they don't happen, not earthquakes, they can occur anywhere.

Terra Firma is a misnomer.

In my experience everywhere has at least one thing to worry about. I grew up in the mountains, next to a river that was about 20 feet wide. At least once a summer we had a "gully washer" that made that little river get 80-100 feet wide. It would destroy things pretty badly. Rarely did anyone ever have problems, because the river flooding was a fact of life.

Stop that! Don't get the crazies looking at my tarsier and licking their chops.


I'm glad that your sons liked him -- especially in a non-dinner way. And BTW, I adore owls. I used to drift off to sleep listening to the one that lived near our house in the country. There's something uniquely soothing about the "hooing."

The true test is what you do when that person tries to take an innocent's life.

What do you do then?

Actually I think the choice is more clear when saving someone else besides yourself. There is very little doubt when it comes to saving a child or a helpless person, but when it comes to defending yourself, it is hard to know how much force is enough? Not to mention the added stress of thinking you might die.

I believe the true test of one's metal is in dealing with a life or death situation, and being entirely willing to take another's life, but exhausting every other possibility first, and then making the right decision at the right time.

There is very little difference between fool-hardy and heroic, criminal and savior. Those split seconds at the key moment are the true test of metal.

The same thing that you do when someone tries to take your life.

That's actually very common in people that react well in the initial emergency, these are the same people that you see crying or puking just before the fight where they kick the other person's ##s in 10 seconds flat, then they just shake for awhile.

I'm also one of them. I don't usually cry and curl up, but the shakes are terrible.

I would never laugh at such a useful skill, my first kill was with a spring power at the tender age of ten.

One thing I have been wondering is how many of the people here, excluding combat vets, have actually ever shot at another human being with harmful intent.
