Re: Shooting at US grocery stores

My definition of an 'assault' type of weapon would also include any former military issue rifle as opposed to a 'hunting' rifle. Hence an old M-1 Carbine or even a 1906 Springfield would also be considered as would the M-14 which was what military rifle I was issued in the NAM. The M-16 was just bei...

Re: Shooting at US grocery stores

I like the fact that in Switzerland, virtually every household has at least one gun of the assault rifle style. And kids are taught how to shoot at a very early age (girls as well now). There are strict gun laws, but with roughly 25% of the gun owning population doubling as police or military duties...

Re: Shooting at US grocery stores

Always remember, if you outlaw guns, only outlaws will have guns. I wouldn't expect you to understand this, however. It's easier if you only have 500 sq/km to control and no hinterlands. and only 1.887 m population like when the country was given it's independence in 1965.

Re: Absence from Singapore

Thanks, why you think so? Because, what they care about are folks like the clowns from the subcontinent who get PR, then immediately return back to India to work and live for 3 of their 5 year "PR". Traveling for a few weeks, or even a few months, while retaining a Singapore residence, is a far dif...

Re: Ergonomic chair

I don't have aircon so Secretlab is out of the question. too bloody hot and more expensive than the Ergotune as well. The ergotune has open weave mesh backing and seat so is pretty cool. I have a friend with one and I've tried it out. it also has something like 11 or 14 adjustment points and with a ...

Re: Ergonomic chair

You only get a 6 month warranty with those cheap chinese made chairs. Go with ErgoTune. They have a 12 YEAR extended warranty. No I don't have one. Yet. But my old gaming chair is on it last set of wheels and I'll be replacing it with an ErgoTune as I've test rode most of them already. Go to their s...

My wife snores loud, but there are some really good ear plugs available now. I wear similar to these ear plugs each night and now really hear her.

The arts scene here is really dead.
It's been on life support for the 49 years I've been here. Occasionally they would have something of note, but it was few and far between.
