Re: Zimmerman

A lethal weapon is one that is significantly lethal - is good at killing. Firearms are definitely in this category. Claymores probably are too. Weapons whose primary purpose is a kill. I'm still waiting for a weapon that tickles a person into light submission as a self-defense tool. Human beings ar...

Re: Rant Board Weight Loss / Exercise Thread

+1 to NerdFitness :)

I'm 25 lbs. down with some good body comp. changes. I can't attribute all of that to NerdFitness -- but I do know I wish I had found it earlier in my fitness journey.

Re: The Fatty McFatterson Disease

By calling it a disease, there is hope certain treatments outside of normal healthcare might actually get treated. An example would be people who cannot get mental help for eating disorders or self-confidence issues. I wonder how this will change wellness programs moving forward too, or gym membersh...

My "grumble" was having a level 30+ rift drop in on a level 15-ish zone while I was trying to quest grind xp.

It was a really smooth launch with some unique classes. F2P might bring back some interest for me, depending on how they choose to lock it up.

As far as fixes, I'd like to see a federal registry of guns with ownership information. I'd also like to see people who own firearms have to carry insurance on guns they own. Some interesting (and positive) dialog could be had with those two ideas... As a gun owner, I'd have no problem with either ...
