Thanks. Mostly, head-banging leaves me cold. They keep that up for 2 hours?

I ran across a name I hadn't heard in a long time Sir Patrick Mack of Maplethorpe. His most recent post was a montha ago. This was a year ago. Still too soon?

Lately he's been doing bad sign language readings.

Metal heads will say "What is this ....scat?"



I saw references to Venus on a Half-shell and the Chesire Cat. I'm sure there're others.

Insane that the county doesn't have to pay for damages after raiding a house on false claims.

Is the "confidential informant" in prison for false reporting? Seems like they would ultimately be responsible for the damage.

Anyhow, it's silly that "SWATting" is even a thing. At minimum, an informant should have to identify themselves to the police and be legally liable for the accusation.

I've been arrested at gunpoint while having a bonfire on my own property by the sheriff department. They claimed someone called in trespassing... on my property. Instead of instantly releasing me and apologizing for the inconvenience, they insisted on asking if I might be involved in anything illegal. How many times do I have to say get off my property.

My niece made an admission at the roadside scene of an accident; where 'I have nothing to disclose' would have sufficed. She's doing time in Salem or Sheridan.

No wonder I would still rather get my property gated/fenced even if I moved to a country where it's not so usual.

Fencing a property of any size now is a small fortune
