Germany and France are pretty tooled up, Switzerland definitely. I would think eastern Europeans are too.

They have loads of guns in Crete - the signposts are full of bullet holes.

I've been told by locals that everyone in this village -- in the Welsh sticks -- has a shotgun. Except me -- I only have an air rifle. But I do have a lot of ammunition.

I've been told that it's legal to shoot a Welshman with a bow and arrow - if you see him crossing the border into England. It's on my bucket list.

That'll be why they're all armed here. I can see the Border from my yard.

Luckily my papers are in order, otherwise I wouldn't be able to cycle to the excellent boozer on the other side.
Not on the pavement, of course. (In any case most of the roads around here don't have pavements.)

Think that might just be in Chester. Could be wrong.

Wouldn't be surprised. Shrewsbury and Hereford have similar by-laws. Allegedly.

Maybe Salisbury has a similar by-law that you can kill a Russian but only if you use nerve gas.

It would explain a lot.

Or not kill a Russian in the least obvious way possible.

Well. When I said 'least' I meant the opposite. How can you possibly not know what I'm thinking regardless of whether or not I type it?

Not your fault, bye laws are tricky like that.

Maybe Theresa May should just declare it open season on Russians, easier to understand, and will save us a lot of hassle with investigations and international incidents.

It will take the majority of American citizens to insist on action, and I don't think that is going to happen any time soon, when "freedom to bear arms" is set in stone.

The majority of American citizens polled want action. First we have to have a true democracy instead of a plutocracy for what we insist to have any meaning.

I sometimes wish. All the craziness from the hurricane we travelled 160 miles to escape, and then it veered straight into where we went (this is the second time our plan of action has played out that way), to the four operations I've had, to the very recent (within the last month) announcement that my wife demands an open marriage when she had already interviewed five potential doms and now is spending two evenings each week as a submissive to a wealthy ex-con murderer who served seventeen years, "has a huge member" and excellent "control", hasn't loved me for fifteen years and only staying because of our disabled child. Outside of that, my life has been blessed.

 At first I was having a hard time handling it. Contemplating suicide. But now I realize it is a blessing. I'm regrouping. Funny thing - she use to yell at me all the time for being on the GWD. All I've been doing for the past 14 years is going to work then coming home and taking care of my child. Now she tells me I should start going to the GWD to have something else to do. Gotta love her.

Hi Drip. I'm reading a novel by Ian McEwan in which his protagonist is having a long rant about the state of the world:

"And foe-of-convenience, the United States, barely the hope of the world, guilty of torture, helpless before its sacred text conceived in an age of powdered wigs, a constitution as unchallengeable as the Koran. Its nervous population obese, fearful, tormented by inarticulate anger, contemptuous of governance, murdering sleep with every new handgun. "

We have had only four years in the long history of our country where we weren't engaged in some military conflict. We are war mongers.

BTW, I hear Britain is also having a problem with obesity.

True. I've lost 15kg since December. Another 10 to go. Just saying.
