  • Gun in Chili's - is that really news?  [ Tue Jul 13 2010 12:06 PM ]

    It sounds more like a mistake about what kinds of drinks Chili's serves than a mistake of law - and it's a weird law anyway. The guy's a dingbat for wearing a gun around in the first place (and maybe he had a floor length leather trench coat and sunglasses like Neo) but let's not act shocked because he wore his gun in a place that serves hard liquor instead of just beer. Like I say, weird law.

    I don't think it's a weird law.

    But I do think gun totin' is weird.

    Fermentation: yum. Heat distillation: crime against flavor. I mean, if we were talking about freeze distillation like they use to make eisbocks, that'd be one thing, but boiling your fermented product to get the alcohol and leave the rest behind? That's nuts. You've got to be some kind of weird hardware geek to do that, doing things just because you can, rather than because you should. Didn't these people learn anything from Jurassic Park? And now they want guns too, because "unarmed" velociraptors aren't enough.

    Way to take away freedom in the name of freedom.

    I'm so glad I didn't wait in line for hours to get the G4 because ... hold on, I have to take this call—It will probably be a while because I still have a G3 which lacks a major design flaw that causes it to drop calls.
