    Oh wait, I'm supposed to take someone who scans the internet for this very topic so that they can engage people with whom he has nothing in common, and has been doing this for almost 20 years, claims to want a "serious discussion" then two sentences later uses great phrases like 'leftist ignorance' for anything more than the kind of sad joke that they are?

    Keep up the good fight man. We'll be back in the 1800s in no time.

    Its a good thing the professionals all had guns when facing the dangerous assailant armed with a pellet gun otherwise the agent might still be alive....

    Well, I have to be honest, I haven't wanted to run down a guy in a crosswalk this much since N8.

    Good times.

    Sorry, I was attempting subtlety, my bad guys.

    I'll try again:

    Randomly joining discussions on forums without paying attention to the nature/subject of the website is arguing without context or a reference point. It's like walking up to a small group of strangers at a grocery store and jumping into their conversation. You have know prior knowledge of the people you engage, thus leaving you without context.

    Or, even less subtle :

    You're from New Jersey so you're an idiot.

    I still can't imagine this guy is real. Especially with the picture and personal story on a mountain bike forum. And I really don't understand the desire to argue with people that you have nothing in common with. I don't agree with all of dante and kidwoo's political beliefs, but I'd like to think that I could go for a bike ride with them and disregard the political banter.

    I allow a little leeway if you're over 6'5.

    And if you're one of those 5'1 women who had to get a 29er because all the cool kids have one, you're ok too, because you're ****ing hilarious looking. What's your next upgrade, a penny farthing?

    29ers are perfect for smaller people whose technical skill will never get beyond plow and pray. Don't mean that as an insult either, if it gets people off their asses and onto bikes.

    When did this turn into a 29er thread?

    I have a contradictory opinion about this too.

    Not to put the conversation back on subject, but I'm sure a darky being in charge has nothing to do with it:

    Where do you get that from?

    Everything I'm reading names the shooter a "James Holmes". You getting your news from Stormfront again?

    no, pointing out when the shooters are black/muslim, it's terrorism

    new life church shooter from a few years back [white] popped a few in denver & came down here where he eventually off'd himself after being wounded by jeanne assam (also having a curiously sounding muslim name - but she's lily white).

    he was on a spree, however; not terrorism

    If one person in the viewing audience had a gun on them, they could have SAVED LIVES by shooting the shooter.

    also true is they could have shot a few more other people.

    crossfire much?

    considering:
    - poor visibility further hampered by tear gas
    - dynamic background
    - bad guys not certain
    - panic/pandemonium

    i think justifying opening fire in a very crowded theater in order to get the bad guy(s) while not getting civilians/allies would be a very difficult task even a trained professional would struggle to succeed at

    And if pigs could fly we would all need umbrellas.

    Seriously. In all likelihood this imaginary rambo could barely hit the broad side of a barn in broad daylight like this internet cafe "hero",

    never mind in a crowded theater filled with smoke, screaming people and a movie playing on a gigantic screen.
