JoshTheBlack said:There is very likely a storm coming, and we are not ready for it. Our leadership seems wholly incapable of deescalation. The pot is at a low simmer and heading straight for a full on rolling boil. If this pot is allowed to boil over, it will be infinitely worse than the shutdowns and toilet paper shortages of April/May.
I urge all of my fellow BM family, especially in major cities, to have a plan in place. Pack a "go" bag. Food/water, first aid, clothes, flashlights, batteries, etc. Store up plenty of water. Maybe reconsider your stance on gun ownership. (If you do, learn how to use it safely! Go to a range and put a few hundred rounds through it once or twice a month. Know how to treat it, use it, and clean it.) Find some friends/family that live in a more rural area that would be willing to let you hunker down if it comes to it.
Maybe this whole thing can turn around and not pop off, but it's looking less and less likely. If it does, there will be people trying to help, and people trying to take advantage of the chaos. Remember, luck favors the prepared.
I agree with you about being prepared, but don't think everyone needs to arm themselves. More people die from suicide by gun or gun accidents then do from crime.

mharmless said:Florida set back to back new records for daily deaths. 186 yesterday, 216 today. And Disney is still open and schools open in a few weeks...I just can't understand how we're not only watching this happen, but actively encouraging it to get worse.
The U.S. is in bad shape and i don't have much hope things are going to get better. Think about how many people still refuse to wear a mask? Pure insanity.
Hatorian said:KingpinSuch a classic. Woody and Bill Murray are just A+ in this. The end showdown with the hair is just truly special.
I read the other day that Murray hit all three stirkes in a row in one take, and it caused the crowd to go wild. They also mentioned how he improvised just about all his lines in the film. Pretty crazy. Makes me want to do a re-watch (it's been many years).
