@ School shootings - Hikaro has almost the exact same ideas I share on all accounts written in his last 2 posts. After the bomb threat the school I work at had a few months ago, I have been thinking about the security of that district. There seems to be little in the way of security and the 2 elementary schools are really accessible. The most they have in the way of protection is electronically locked doors
Pretty sure firearms are off limits there, so even when I get my gun and license, I wouldn't be allowed to have it on me. Eventually, there will be a story of someone protecting a school and accidentally shooting or killing someone else during an incident like what just happened. 2nd amendment opponents will always look for a reason to support their cause. I actually made a phone call yesterday to the guy I used to work with about still being able to get a gun.
@ Dark Knight Rises -
Spoilers dude!! For the record, the end was my favorite part of that whole movie. I loved how they tied everything up. I didn't enjoy the "Goldfinger" accent Bane had and thought they should have had someone that really looked way bigger than Batman.
@ Aquaman - If done right, he could be a great character. Napo suffers from the same ideas I had about him in the past. How is it cool to breathe underwater, talk to fish, swim fast, and wear a stupid looking green leotard with and orange shirt? It's the reason I wanted my hair to be darker as a kid and not blonde (which I now regret). The right actor, the right direction, and the right story can make him just as epic as the "cooler" super heroes. He is still around for a reason.
@ FB/Flickr - I used to be anti both, but I have found that both can be regulated to your liking. on FB, I have quite a few contacts info set so I don't see their posts. I suspect that a few of my contacts have me "turned off" ever since I went off on my hockey rants in the beginning of October. The only LEGO related contact I have on their right now is Omi. Flickr has a block option, plus the only way I really get fired up over something on there is if I let it get to me, or I see some stupidity regarding BrickForge that I feel the need to respond to. I'm opening myself up to more social media. Anyone that wants to be a contact, hit me up.
Got the fireplace today and it looks great. Played the x-box on the new TV and I love it.
