If we are indeed on the cusp of WW3, how are you preparing?

    The French won't be stockpiling arms when WWIII comes. They'll be laying them down and surrendering.

    I don't speak for the Israeli womens' hygiene.

    They didn't lay down arms when they beat the shit out of the British Navy at the Chesapeake, securing our victory at Yorktown.

    I'm going to buy an "I love God" t-shirt to make sure I go to the right place.
    I may start selling them, too.

    Umm, do I need to be watching CNN right now?
    Is something radically changing?
    Or is it more of the same in the Middle East?

    I cannot believe people are actually debating this.

    I mean, Jesus Christ, Bill Paxton's best role was Chet in Weird Science. This is a fact of fucking life, people.

    A_F's new bumper sticker: "You'll have to pry my gun out of my cold dead hands."

    "What's the difference between them and us?"
    "WE LIVE HERE!!!"

    An inspiration for us all as we try to win WWIII by ourselves (thanks Hoops!):

    I would start by dusting off my Nostradamus books. After that, I might start up GTA Vice City for stress release.

    Well, he did mention the gun first, which tells me where his head is.

    And even if he doesn't have a gun, he's still panicking like a little bitch. I should add that though A_F and I have had board disagreements, I don't hate him, I hate the hit-the-panic-button paranoia he's spewing. It's counterproductive, silly, dangerous, and most important, EXACTLY HOW TERRORISTS WANT YOU TO FEEL.

    This is what I hate about the America we live in right now -- tough talk about how the rest of the world should run their lives, get threatened by the lunatic fringe that really doesn't represent the majority of anti-American opinion, go into uber-paranoia mode.

    It's a stupid-ass vicious cycle.

    Al-Qaeda cannot, I repeat, cannot bring WWIII to our shores. Nor can Iran, Syria, North Korea, or any other nations viewed as overtly hostile. The damage those nations can inflict on us pales in comparison to the damage we can inflict on them, so for people to hit the panic button about a third-rate attempt at an airline hijacking and extrapolate it into WWIII is pathetic. I'd worry if this were China or Russia, but this ain't the Cuban Missile Crisis folks.

    I hear a lot of conservatives talk about this ridiculous notion of the "pussification of America". It's times like this where the paranoia crew -- and many are righties -- show who the real pansies are -- the shoot first, ask questions later kind of pansies -- who refuse to live their lives without fear.

    I don't fear a goddamn thing about Al-Qaeda, and I live within horrible death range of the biggest chemical weapons depot in the nation. I refuse to give in to the notion that those assholes can fuck with the things I can control in the way I live my life. If more Americans felt the same, we'd be in a helluva lot better mindset than we are.

    An example? I don't admire the policies of the Israeli government, but I admire the hell out of the Israeli people, who live with this shit perpetually. Their ability to live relatively normally under fire is an example of what we should follow instead of flipping the chicken switch everytime someone threatens to kill us.

    I refuse to let Al-Qaeda win even one inch of doubt in my mind about the way I live my life. I will fly, I will visit large cities, I will visit would-be terrorists targets, I will rock with my cock out if the spirit moves me. What I won't do is panic like a little bitch because Al-Qaeda threatened us.

    To me, that's a helluva lot more American than flashing our piece Swingers-style to the world. Live your lives. Walk the fucking walk.

    Rant over.
    Merry Christmas! Holy shit! Where's the Tylenol!

    Maybe Bubbler's got a point. I have a separate idea ... require the use of marijuana by EVERYONE on the planet. No one would have the energy or motivation to try and plant a bomb, let alone build one.

    As does the thought that you should constantly keep that gas tank full. Like there's no connection between crazy energy consumption and the unstable world. If all hell breaks loose you'll probably need the guns to protect the full gas tank, not yourself.

    People are idiots. I'll be the guy calmly going about my business carrying nothing, knowing that everyone's time comes to an end one way or another, and if this the time, so be it. I won't court danger, but I won't become some nutty survivalist either.

    How about a nice, greasy pork sandwich, served in a dirty ashtray?
