I don't get spam so much as the internet feezes when I am here. It happens on my work computer and in a slightly different ay on my home computer. I suspect it is some of the scripts running from the ads. Call it the cost of "free".

Hey, Regs, this is Go Blue Forever. I met Go Blue on a different thread and invited her (?)to stop by.

Let's see.
Redhead with glasses is a Hawkeye transported to MN
Sublime is a Badger transported to SC
I was an Illini and Blue Demon.

Tonka is from FL but I will mess up which is his team.
Sam I Am is omni-team but has connections to get really good tickets.

Some like Squishy and Aisle Sitter don't talk about team affiliation much.

Like I said, lurk or stop by as you please.

"Your honor, there's no proof my client killed anyone."
Sub: "yeah, but there's no proof he didn't NOT kill anyone, either. So he is guilty as charged, right?"

Come on, man.
You are the one who used that argument. I merely used the same one against you to demonstrate how weak it was for you to do so. I'm glad you have seen the light and agree.

<quoted text>There are still murders, there are still armed robberies, there are still all types of crime. I can argue that punishments hardly ever serve as a deterrent.
You can argue this, but you've yet to present anything other than conclusory statements to back this up. Your argument consists of, it is because I say it is.

<quoted text>No, I do not think that soemone committing a crime considers the consequences in advance other than trying not to get caught. The cool calculation, if any, goes into risk avoidance not potential consequences.
So if we just made armed robbery a $100 fine misdemeanor, you don't think the incidents of armed robbery would increase at all?

I don't think criminals think all that much.
It's all relative. If not for the deterrence effect our crime rate would be even higher.

Like I have said, make armed robbery a $100 fine misdemeanor and armed robbery incidents will, without a doubt, increase. This would not happen if criminals gave consequences absolutely no thought. Do all criminals give such thought; no, but some do?

Just got a quick release sissy bar (back rest for the passenger) for my bike this afternoon.$415 with all the other shyte I need to install it. Bambi will appreciate it.

I wanted a quick release one because I don't want it on when I don't have a passenger.

You still have not? Then what were you just babbling about?

You soaking up brilliance? Perhaps if pigs could fly. I wouldn't hold your breath ... on second thought maybe you should.

Sure they would. It would become as prevalent as smoking dope. But as a society we say you shouldn't commit armed robbery and "we" really mean it. If you aren't deterred by the possibility of 10 to 15 in Stateville as compared to getting a coupel hundred dollars with a gun, we will just punish you with that after teh fact and get you out of "our" hair for a number of years.

Welcome!(Ignore the fact that I'm responding to Pelly).

My SIL's latest surly tweet/Facebook post is something about her jeans ripping when she sat down.
