Sebastian and Caleb (this is not Mormon gay porn)

Admittedly, I've been out of this for awhile. I missed the passing of DuToit. Obviously I missed a lot of other things.

Several months ago we rolled out a product that we thought would do some good. Ensuing flame wars and whatnot, convinced me it wasn't that easy.

The original reaction was much like this. Caleb thought it was a waste of money. We fucked about in comments for awhile, but the CW was the chances of one having to actually use a firearm was so slim as to make this useless and duplicates the comprehensive firearms coverage included in every State Farm policy.

Sebastion backed him up, as did XRLQ.

Since then, Caleb had to fight off an attack from a homeless guy and Sebastian has decided you're more likely to have to defend yourself than get hit by a meteor.

Really don't know what the underlying philosophy is, but these two back each other up, even when it contradicts shit they've already said.

Good for them. People take them very seriously and, without a doubt, they know what they're talking about at the range.

I just question followers (both magazines and commentators.)

My New Favorite Idiot

The manager of this site is a good looking woman. I wouldn't kick her out of bed for eating Puffy Cheetos.

On the the other hand, she's a fucking idiot. I hadn't run into this Newsweek blog before the Ft. Hood atrocity. It appears many people write for this blog and all of them are morons.

First off, it looks like they are of the opinion that there is such a thing as pre-Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder. This is so obviously stupid, that it almost need not be addressed. Of course this had nothing to do with Islam or the fact that maybe it's not a good idea to send a Muslim into a theatre of operations that is kind of, sort of about killing Muslims. No. Now the trauma of war can be felt and have deep psychological consequences before the subject even goes near a war zone. Pretty soon, newborns that come into this world at times of conflict will have pre-pre-Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder.

Today they follow up with something equally idiotic.

I never made the jump to digital/HD/whatever-the-fuck it is TV. I figured life without Matt Lauer couldn't be all that bad. I was more than right. I don't miss television at all. I'm beginning to think that certain web outlets qualify in the same way.

If not watching or reading these fucktards makes life easier, maybe I'll just steer clear of the whole ignorant mess.
