Iīm sure you can get an automatic BB gun similar to the AK-47 or Ingram I got, Thorny. While not deadly, you definitely donīt want to get shot in the face by them ohmy.gif

When I return to home to America the first thing I'm doing is getting my concealed carry license. I already took the courses. I'll just send them through the Department of Agriculture and a few weeks later I can obtain it. My father had three guns. He sold two and I think he's going to buy more. I like glocks..... I might just get a glock 19.

I wish I had BB guns in Brazil where toy guns weren't so damn expensive. I'd round all those pigeons and line them up in the backyard.... The survivors.... And execute them one by one for the heinous crime of making my clean bird droppings and feathers every damn day from my varanda and hallway upstairs.

I love guns. Started to ever since I was mugged haha. My uncle has five in household, the other has two, a glock and an AR-15.

Why?


A poor choice of perspective in relation to the narrative. The story has evolved considerably since it's initial concept, and it's left me kind of screwed.

I've been writing it in the third person, following the main character exclusively. For some stories this wouldn't be a problem, but with the way I've got things set up, it means the antagonist is going to be completely absent until the finale. It also means characterising the main character's team of twenty or so people becomes a real bitch, and makes some scenes a pain in the arse to write, particularly if they primarily involve other characters.

And if I want to shift the perspective around to cover events the main character isn't directly involved in, I'd have to rewrite everything I've got so far anyway to accommodate that. And if I'm going with something that extensive, I might as well restart and do it properly rather than try to bodge it in and have to redo it later.

Iīm gonna buy two bags and hopefully the second one will live to be eaten another day... biggrin.gif
Callidus Thorn
I'll be honest, I've never seen the appeal of popcorn.

But them again, we know that you were programmed into liking it by a NES game rollinglaugh.gif

Popcorn-related news: I bought the two bags I said I would but when I got to the cottage I was a bit hungry so I went for tea and a couple sandwiches instead. Which means I still have both bags left!! biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

Nice to see you're still here and kicking mirocu! We Vikings are a tough breed.. biggrin.gif ..and that goes for you too Acadian.

Today we had a sharp bomb-threat at work, we all had to evacuate our offices at least those who were in the neighborhood to where the indication of explosives was found. I don't know the outcome, so hopefully I have a job to go to tomorrow! blink.gif

A bomb threat? Blimey! blink.gif


Thankfully most threats are just that; threats. If you actually wanna bomb something you usually donīt call ahead.


And no, I donīt know that from experience.. whistling.gif

@ Minque - I do agree with Mirocu's experienced words here. People that are going to do something, don't call in and make threats, they just do it.

I worked in a place that got evacuated twice for bomb scares - no one called in, but the bomb-sniffing dogs alerted and the feds swarmed the place to find the threat.

Ugh. Someone made a threat like that the week before finals last semester. On my birthday.

Someone who hadn't studied or was late for their finals, laugh.gif

I bet you're right, but it doesn't make sense! I would think they would WANT to go to final review week!
