Coffee and two bite brownies. My day = Made. (:

Plus, new avatar featuring Barbara.

I think that they should ban assault weapons, I can see other guns being used for hunting, but do you really need an assault rifle to shoot a deer? No. I'm not into hunting but I totally respect people who hunt, it's a skill; but I don't think I would ever be interested in trying it.

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

Bekah- I have had chronic pain since elementary school. So definitely know what you're going through! Here's my after-work routine: hot shower, warm fluffy pj's, hot tea or cheesy food (or whatever), random pain/inflammation pills (lately I find Arthritis Aspirin work better than Tylenol and Advil and even Robax), and maybe Voltaren gel depending on where the pain is centered. I also use Lakota ice gel and I bought a heat pack today. Mix and match and hate life. That's what I do.

Hope you feel better though! There;s this electro machine that physiotherapists use which you can buy online now which I want. It emits little electrical shocks through suctoin cups attached to your pain spot. Omg I wish I had one.

@maisy, I had coffee and brownies too!!!! omg twins. Also, love your new av!

Yes olympia it is a different thought pattern. Actually maisy you can hunt with them especially nuisance animals like the boars down south. Real dangerous little piggies that like to roam in groups, those things can kill people and animals alike. And just because you can put a high cap magazine in the rifle doesn't mean it's legal to hunt with, there is a shot limit. I'm not sure what it is on rifles but shotguns it's 5 shells and why they come with "chokes".

I'm not against them but I don't like them based on the fact of A) I don't like polymer grips and B) I like old school weapons like garands and mausers. :) They're all fun to shoot though, yall really should try it sometime! :D

Also I want a hedgehog they're so cute it hurts!^_^

Edit: OMG, those tanks olympia!O.O

I shot guns one Christmas down in Nova Scotia. Matt's friend come from a hunting family and he's in the military. I shot 2 guns. Don't know what they were, the third I did not shoot but it was an assault rifle of some kind. It was cool to shoot them, I will admit. But SO easy to see where accidents come from if you're not careful. Also, my aim is bad. Matt's friend cut down a tree with the scary assault one. It looked cool but to the death of a tree (new habitat for microorganisms I guess)

Ok. I want to put shrimp in my tank. I don't like running it empty.
