I heard the audio recording of that 911 call. Scary shit, but still thought it was pretty cool that some guy stepped up to the plate to stop his neighbor's house from being robbed while the police lagged. Some people just need to invest in non lethal bullets.

I don't know how plentiful the women are in Wyoming but my friend's wife originated from there and is the total girl next door that cooks, cleans, takes care of the kids, let's him do his thing, and doesn't drain him financially or mentally. But if bitchy high maintenance city women are your thing then that may not appeal to you.

I spent a couple weeks driving through Wyoming about 10 years ago.
Unreal part of the world - Go for days without seeing a soul.

Drove from Winnipeg through north and south dakota and into wyoming to yellowstone and back again. Would love to do it again one day.

well I don't know anything about the place and I'm a foreigner, but speaking from a more general perspective, if you're single and unattached with no kids you should suck up all the experience you can get - remember you'll just look back on it one day as something you did for a little while for the experience

but the rent free place to make tunes sounds like a major plus

maybe get Jack Kerouacs 'the Dharma bums' from the library and read about his experiences as a fire spotter - that always sounded cool to me and look at what he did with his time

when you're tied down with a family you'll really wish you'd done more of that kind of shit

The Beartooth mountains in Wyoming are probably my favorite spot anywhere in the western mountains outside of the Kananaksis. Another little tip...

Enjoy!

You see, it's stories like this in which my Liberal tendencies run smack into a Big Fat Republican Conservative Asshole Brick Wall. Fuck those assholes. He should have shot the fuckers again for good measure, then kicked them in the balls. Motherfuckers. Fuck them. The fact that he apparently shot them in the back as they were fleeing is just adding the 'poetic' to poetic justice. Fucking douchebags.

The illegal immigrant spin that's being applied to this whole story is nothing short of appalling. Two 'poor, poor men from Columbia who both have cancer and walked all the way from Bogota and just wanted a few scraps of bread to feed their starving families were shot by a crazy white Texan. Will there be no justice for these two hard working individuals who just wanted to be American Citizens?' Please.

My neighbors can't lift a fucking finger to keep their shithole dogs from barking or discipline their tyrant fucking children once in a while, let alone kill someone for me.

wow, you're a died in the wool asshole. funny, this shit totally sets off my liberal-alarm.

from the call
“I’m not going to let them get away with it,” he told the emergency operator. “I’m going to shoot.” He added, “I’m going to kill them.”

The operator repeatedly told Mr. Horn not to shoot, and the police had just arrived at the scene when Mr. Horn fired three blasts of 00 buckshot from his 12-gauge, striking the men in their backs.
what kind of sick fuck wants to kill another human being, it was pre-meditated murder. over what? the inbred chickenshit shot the guys in the back, what an asshole.

oh, and to both you tw@s - I've stopped several crimes and have never owned a gun.

OK, you're right, sorry, with the right tights and makeup a wig would suffice, no hair products required.

The Texas Penal Code allows the use of deadly force if the “actor reasonably believes the deadly force is immediately necessary.” Deadly force can also be used to protect property when “the other is fleeing immediately after committing burglary.”


The California Penal Code allows the use of a really mean look if the "actor reasonably believes that a really mean look is immediately necessary." A really mean look can also be used to protect property when "“the other is fleeing immediately after committing burglary."


Did you prevent these crimes with the Really Mean Look, or threaten to lecture them to death?

Everything?
Ableton’s engineers are hard
at work developing code that will allow our software to predict the future, but we don’t
anticipate having this available until at least the next major release.
