I guess the question is, why do we have that rule? Is it because Jeph doesn't like guns, full stop? Is it because we're worried about glorifying weaponary on a forum that could be accessed by children? Is it because of some American law I don't know about? Personally I find guns disturbing, but I think that's because I'm from the UK and we don't really have them here in the same way so to me, a gun is something alien and terrifying. But that isn't really a reason not to allow someone to post a photo of themselves doing something that is part of their identity.

I'm quite glad I'm not a moderator!

It would simply devolve to "my gun is bigger than your gun" arguments, and you know with that and the whole penis envy thing this place is hostile enough already.

So a student talked me into "No-shave November", but as a fair fight, we all had to be clean shaven on Nov 1...




OK, the last time I shaved my chin was when I broke my jaw (25 years ago this friday).  The last time I had no moustache was sometime in 1978.  My wife had never  seen me this way, and says it creeps her out every time she looks at me...



I feel soooooo coooooold....

I had whited my face up, but had to wash it off later in the evening.

I'd gone with an outfit to be made into a werewolf but unfortunatly the girls who were going to make me up were only in the middle of setting up the house. So I helped set up the house instead and just tore my clothing, wore white makeup with red round my face and claimed I was a zombie.

5 1/2; his sister is 3.  I doubt they did anything at Halloween; they weren't so well last week, and their (American) mother is in South America being strangled by John Malkovich again.  They live in Germany, where I don't think Halloween is so big.

Well it does look as if they are having fun. And I hope you are doing all the typical grandad stuff, like telling stories and hideously undermining their parents authority.

That does look pretty epic mate, but did you get a pretty lady grabbing you:

Went to a cookout.  After we ate, people broke out guitars and stuff for the "sing-a-long" portion of the evening, and I had my flute in the car, so what the heck.



I know, lyric sheets.  But not everybody knows all the words.



Someone yelled "Flute solo!" so I took one.  It seemed to go well.

Orbert, that looks like fun! What were you singing? I was once at a great party with loads of classical musicians and opera students and we had an impromptu concert. I had been planning to sing but I wasn't anywhere close to their league so I bottled out.

It was basic campfire sing-a-long stuff.  A bunch of Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, John Denver... stuff that old farts like myself who grew up in the 70's would know.  Progressions were were simple (lots of A, D, G, and other guitar-friendly chords) so whipping up a countermelody, taking a solo (since no one else wanted to) and/or adding a well-known hook line wasn't a biggie.  Pretty amateur stuff, but it was fun.

Same here, everytime I see some kind of see-through metal floor on the street I go as far away from it as I can.  :-P
Old picture (half a year ago I believe)... I just don't have too many pics. She's a very nice person. :)

Maria has a bad fear of heights. She had to keep her eyes forward. Also did I mention it jiggled if you moved? Yeah, I could tap my foot- that's about it.

Also Maria had to go down the block and buy some flats because her stilettos would have gotten caught in the grate.

Anyway, it was a cool place. After our show they had Karaoke and I totally f'd up Cake's version of I Will Survive.
