Im going to try to make one of these: If you dont hear back from me, I accidentally killed myself with duct tape.
probably going to make a leather jacket, since shoe lasts wont be here for at least a week. ; _ ;
I hate this country. So much normies, so many retarded fucking judgements, so many bullshit. I'm going to have to become an asshole so they can figure out this shit out. Fuck them dude.
realtalk my homie, it really isnt going to be better anywhere else. people are annoying and difficult. Perhaps you are upset over something else, and lashing out at this one thing? not that people dont piss me off to this degree, ever once in while..

my brain has now completely connected the phenomenon of sleep, with waking up feeling like shit. I now cannot get myself to go to sleep.

Ugh, roommates are the worst. I used to just be proactive. Bounce into the kitchen and get my food, joke and banter with whoever was there, then bounce back out with my food. But I'm female and it was impressed in me to be accommodating from birth.

Here is the source of tension and it has nothing to do with point keeping: They are throwing a party without the express okay of everybody who lives in the flat. Because of that they feel tense knowing deep down you have every right to be angry or at least annoyed. That makes them awkward with you. Also, that makes them the intrusive assholes when all you want is to eat your food. Right?

does anyone else ever find themselves doing this:
you tell a person a thing, anticipate a terrible counter argument, give the counter argument, to the terrible counter argument you think they are about to make. afterwards, feel exhausted and no longer like the person you were talking to, simply because you anticipated them being annoying, and having to expend energy to prevent them from annoying you.
other people do this too right :cat:
I do.

I used the same process to create a duct tape form for a corset I made last year. It worked out okay but duct tape is not a firm as you might want. It gets stretchy and warps.

i also enjoy messing around with textile stuff and walking around like a looneytoon. last year my oxigen deprivation was bad enough, it seemed like a great idea to shorten the brim of my baseball caps to about 4-5cm. it looks great, harmonizes well with a somewhat receding chin in and my smaller face. looks bat shit autistic as well. i even thought about buying a cosplay wig and wearing it in winter, instead of a hat - not hoping that it would look like real hair. but then chemo fixed my blood counts and i woke up from this obsession. when i was 18 yrs old, i was sewing my own pants and everything, going for some sci-fi pilot like patterns. in my understanding, this interest in visual arts is introverted sensation. its a huge part of my personality. i used to have an artist persona for some years, but didn't make it, due to lack of self-confidence. also, as a child i was always dressing up, because i wasn't allowed to be myself, so i escpaped into a fantasy life. as a cowboy with a playmobil gun in my pocket, i was allowed to stay in touch with a desire for autonomy or for maintaining boundaries.

I was experiencing something similar, except they were drinking since our classes were off, so 3 days straight (could be a 4th tonight). There be invisible tension.

honestly, this forum makes me feel like a human. thanks
I used the same process to create a duct tape form for a corset I made last year. It worked out okay but duct tape is not a firm as you might want. It gets stretchy and warps.
during the whole process I kept making redneck corset jokes to myself..
after getting 2 inches above my waist, i was immediately reminded im claustrophobic :cat:
why not just use a bit of leather and a zipper?
it wasnt a task for a single person, but I made it sort of work?
i even thought about buying a cosplay wig and wearing it in winter, instead of a hat
I like this idea, however, arent wigs just hair hats?

Feeling suicidal and depressed today, I really can't tolerate this existence anymore.
I am just sick and tired of doing worthless tasks. I can't fucking stand it. I just want to work in industry, I wouldn't even care about the pay I just need to do something of value. As long as I could feel myself and travel there and back I would work there for months no problem. I'm seriously lost without it. I can't do a simple part-time job anymore because I'm not growing and to me they don't provide any value.

Education seems pointless, slow and worst of all: Theoretical. Grade boundaries are a joke with one question with a short answer being worth 5 marks, so you either get 5 marks or you don't. Where is the logic in that? Get 2 of those questions and that's a grade boundary of a 4.0 or 3.0 GPA. Ultimately it's going to mean jack-shit when I get into industry because industry requires you to be fast on your feet and constantly learn. I'm not constantly learning anything from education and some of the marking scheme is just straight-up retarded: For example, meeting the likes of the Single Responsibility principle to that of a model answer, instead of refining it even further. In-fact, refining it further causes a loss in marks.I don't think education and industry works in harmony over here, education is just a money-maker.

I'm nowhere where I want to be, not even near a fucking baseline. There is just nothing to look towards in this country. My course is 5 years long and it'll account for a lot less within my first 6 months on the job. I can't plan to do the work myself because there's just so many avenues to learn: Should I learn C++, Java, PHP, J#, what software tools are we using, development models, Data analytics, ML, Databases, Cybersecurity, DevOps etc. I need thrown in the deep end and I can't wait another year to get there.

I had a carolina reaper chilli last night, damn that interrupted a steady sleep. Way too much capsaicin. There was no initial mouth-burning effect: I swallowed my saliva prior to eating it, swallowing it as a whole with a glass of milk. I escaped the burning sensation, however my stomach felt on fire during the night causing me to wake up multiple times. It's still a bit painful as we speak, many dairy foods have been consumed.

Oh we have similar concerns. My late high school and early college days can quite easily be summed up with 'Well, thank fuck for my german liver.' Got me and mine out of trouble enough times to outgrow our naivete.

It's funny, how normal and pedestrian the strategy to specifically 'get her drunk enough to say yes/not resist' was not even ten years ago.

Time changes many things, I guess. For my underage mother, getting into a car with a man in is mid 20s counted as consent and everything that followed was her fault. She was forced to marry him. Her father only began speaking to her again after that man kept putting her in the hospital.

She got away eventually though. Then that man did the same thing to 7 other women and their children. Fuck them for being stupid though right? And fuck other women for being careful.

honestly I've totally lost interest in dating, mostly due to to fact that you have to fulfill two mutually exclusive criteria of 1) you have to be passive enough to not get metoo'ed 2) you have to take enough initiative for something to happen.

and sure if I give enough fucks I can walk that tightrope – i.e. in the cases that it does exist, finding the narrow band that exists between those two domains. But I would say in many cases that band doesn't even exist and tbh I have more interesting things to do than spending time finding out

and btw I'm not claiming it's some sort of huge societal problem or anything, it just doesn't feel like an enjoyable or rewarding enough process for me personally

If you are going to get metoo'd into prison, you may as well murder them, and fucking earn it.
my2cents
bonus if you live in norway, because norwegian prison is nicer than middle class American living.
id like to think responding to evil, with more evil, is pretty good strat, havent done much game theory research.


She got away eventually though. Then that man did the same thing to 7 other women and their children. Fuck them for being stupid though right? And fuck other women for being careful.
if you think I was implying, that men arent dangerous rapists, you misunderstood. The problem, is that so many men are trash, any decent man, has the job of proving he isnt a fucking rapist/murderer. Its just annoying, starting off in that place, every-single-time.
I personally think if we killed people for causing trouble, people would stop, out of self interest, because caring about others is really not stopping them.
one of the guys I grew up with, told me about his plan to rape his girlfriend, who had some amnesia issue, the plan was to rape her, then she would forget before she could tell anyone. I was like 7?
my opinion of men is very low, and now its very low for women too.


(atm im extremely depressed, and disappointed in everything. I have realized I am projecting my " be perfect or die" idea onto the world. not very realistic, and im trying not to be that dark and cynical. failing)

exactly what serac said, you have to be forward enough to make things happen (women like really forward men) but now, almost anything can send you to prison. I suspect by 2021 written signature, along with a blood contract will be necessary, possibly even notaries involved.
jok, but not jok

so when someone asks, why are there needles everywhere, apparently "I was injecting super glue into the handle of a 100year old knife", is the wrong answer.

Today I was helping move stuff out of our old house, not an hour into moving, my neighbor stopped and and (with a crowbar in his hand) told me and 2 other people he was going to paralyze my mom, do a driveby on our new house, once he figured out where it is, burn down our old house (we still own), and he admitted to trying to flood it already. I called the cops.
did he:
A. get a slap on the wrist
B. receive a stern look
C.absolutely nothing

3 witnesses, a weapon in hand, threat of physical harm, threat of shooting up our house (with a 7yo living in it), threat of burning our house down, admitting that he had tried to flood it... not even a fine, not one night in jail, the cops knew we would be moving things all day, and they didnt even stay 20mins.
its so fucking stupid it sounds made up.
later that day he drove in front of our house and pulled into the ditch with his window down. Im not sure if he drove away bc I pulled out my gun, or he was just trying to scare people. did I call the cops? nope, they are fucking useless, clearly.
at this point it would be completely illegal to harm him, meanwhile we are just waiting to be killed/paralyzed. did they even check him or his house for a gun? oh no dear, that would take 20minutes, and maybe a single fuck.
fuck the police, just give me the same immunity, and let me handle the psychos in my life. Imagine if I threatened to paralyze a cop with a weapon in my hand, or threatened to shoot their house up.
he admitted to trespassing and trying to flood our house.

today was the first day I went to that house without my gun on me.
WELL THEN NOT MAKING THAT MISTAKE AGAIN ARE WE?
did I mention it took them half an hour for the police to arrive?
bitch we dont even live 30 minutes from the fucking police station.
PEOPLESUCK

he was mad because he stole my dog, and I stopped leaving food in my yard....because he took the dog. It had a shed full of hay, it just liked lying in the snow, so he flipped out.
never called me, never said anything about it.

Oh, and I will be going back to that house tomorrow to move things.
bringing the bowie knife and 2 mags of hollow points, god bless 'murca
funny how a 2 week course makes you the unquestionable hand of the law.
there are certificates in cereal boxes with more validity.

now imagine the people who dont have guns, or the physical ability to fight, or without the ability to kill people in self defense. Im glad I bought a gun instead of a car engine, now.
It almost sounds like some 3rd world country shit.
next time I will record it, I hope he does something tomorrow, I will talk to the cops, and confirm everything I already told them, and then ask what they did, maybe ask if I could be paid for driving around with a gun, nah probably need a blue outfit and shiny pin on my coat...

companies need to stop making shoes with soles thicker than half an inch. By the time you wear through 1/4 of the sole, the inside of the shoe is trashed, and the shoes are either thrown away, or resoled, throwing away the sole with only a tiny portion worn out.
Its wasteful, and worse, very ugly.
People barely walk, do you really need half an inch of padding, plus the padding inside the shoe?
They dont even make use of the thickness, and add large grooves.

Planned obsolescence.

There are materials that are more durable. I have a 10 year old pair of Teva sandals. I walk a lot. And have routinely walked upwards of 10 miles a day when hiking during the summers in those sandals. Not until recently have I finally walked through the soles. And mostly that is because of my habit of putting my feet too close to campfires and melting the soles a little.

Yes.
Thats an amazing lifespan for any type of shoe.

Apparently car tires can make some very solid soles, i'm giving it a shot.
I had a person ask why I had leather boots, and when I said they last forever, his response was " I just buy new shoes at walmart every six months."
its odd that people seem to be incapable of long term planning. People pay 1000$ for a phone, and dont even realize how much money they are throwing away, because its only 30$ per month...
those corporate bastards figured out how to trick people.

so many basic skills have been lost, people have become domesticated and clueless, as to how everyday things are made, or fixed.
1586923654092.png
It makes me sad that everything is designed to fail, nothing is made to last anymore.My boots are decent quality, and if I take care of them they will probably last another 5 years, I paid 20$ for them. They have been neglected more than I was when I was a kid (ayylmao), and they are still in great shape.
they just need a little love...

Not a lot can be done about the holes on that leather. Maybe patch it with a bit of leather if you have something of a similar weight. Otherwise give that a little bit of a scrub and leather polish and they might last a few more years.

I couldn't survive without arch support though. Those boots would kill my feet.

Those holes are actually from when I had a giant bootknife XD!
when people are sketchy, giant bootknife is the answer. it was either 8 or 13 inch karambit :D
I could patch them with an x stitch or something, the little holes dont cause any problems. Im amazed you can see them 0_o

Also I'm sorry about that delusional asshole threatening you.

He still bothering you?
eh, we changed plans and didnt go back, but im 100% sure hes sitting around plotting his revenge...for us stealing our stolen dog back... the dog literally ran away from him, to us...
Doesn't matter much, I only called the police so that it was on record he was planning to kill us, so if I kill him, its a bit less wishy washy. our legal system is designed to send people to prison, its why any lawyer tells you not to talk to the police.
( I can physically feel my faith in humanity fading)
lawyers are like a trial by combat thing from game of thrones, but instead it is trial by bullshittery, who can bullshit best. manipulation, as a career.
i'm recording the police next time, just so I can prove how hilariously indifferent they are. I personally wouldn't believe what I said, because its so wrong that it seems made up.
the biggest issue for me, is that if I said the same threats to them, I would be shot or in jail, or at least tasered... he had a weapon, screaming he would paralyze someone...
ANYWAYS cobbling is fun, and I found this dead snake today. I actually asked the person who owned the house if I could have the dead snake.

bad ps! normal humans dont ask for petrified dead snakes they found in an attic.
gonna work on that.

I think they had a decent bit of arch support. The heel portion was worn down, along with the ball of foot area. Any decent shoe has a shank, which is a solid metal, or wooden rod, that keeps the arch stiff. Over time arch support developes, I think?

more arch support caused by growing up with shoes with strong arches, or is it just an arch problem in your foot?

Interesting. I suppose that is why a broken in pair of boots can be so comfortable.

Yeah, I guess keeping records is key. There was a guy who was living off the grid who ended up shooting and killing another man who was threatening him like your guys is...I'll have to see if I can find the story. He lived in my region. Anyway, they are in the middle of a court case trying to decide if he should go to prison for murder atm.

That snake is awesome! *I* would ask for that. What are you going to do with it?

I have walked a ton my whole life and I have high arches so now my feet are shit. :slashnew:

Hold on, I've got a picture of some cat teeth I collected from an old WW2 ambulance that was left in the grass at my home when I was a kid.

yeah its quite scary, our justice system is a bit...____

snake is awesome, and I have no idea, I was thinking I could clear coat it and put it in a tree, or maybe sit it on a shelf? It needs eyes. Im glad we both would ask for the petrified animal we found in ceiling XD

eek foot issues sound miserable.

cat teeth? the jaws or just teeth? how are you sure they are cat teeth?

I'm so glad someone finally brought this up...it's been driving me insane my whole existence! How can people so easily just throw things away? I horde so much unnecessary things until I can properly recycle them, because I'm worried what will become of it. (I feel like it's my duty to all my cardboard boxes and soft plastics, it's a blessing and a curse).

Unfortunately, things are made so cheaply so that we keep buying more, just like that dude who buys shoes at Walmart every 6 months. What happened to caring for your things and not mindlessly wearing them down because you can just buy a new one?

ugh its really weird, because now my boots have sentimental value. The longer you have things, the more you appreciate and care for them. I never knew shoes could last though, I grew up with really shitty shoes. I just happened to buy some olukai chuka boots one day, and they lasted more abuse than any shoe I have ever see. (let it be known, those olukai boots were waterproof until the day they died, I paid 23$) I threw them away when the sole fell off, I didnt know how to fix at the time :/
I think most people just dont know things can last.
I didnt realize cardboard was a big issue.

gen z wont even wear things long enough to wear them out, they will just find something shinier and throw old things in trash. ARGH wot a mess.
we have been not so gently, lead to this consumerism society.
If this stuff bothers you, maybe dont throw away food scraps, by putting food in trash, and sending it to landfill, the nutrients become unreachable and unusable.
and dont be one of these absolute units, that cuts their grass and puts it in a bag and throws it away. Your yard slowly loses all of its nutrients when it cant reabsorb them.


why my boots have holes in them XD
told you they were neglected <.<
this was back before I knew how to care for the leather.
I think my moms bf was being insane at the time, idr

i also tend to fall in love with older objects with vintage look but we dont do ourselves a favor if we walk around like a bum.

i once bought heavy boots (handwag bergler) because i was impressed that another guy used those boots of 16+ years. but then i lost weight, became capable of running and didn't feel like being bogged down anymore.

i wear lem's primal 2 right now. they are similar to whats in the attached video, but have 3mm sole and 3mm insole, so slightly thicker than whats in the video. lem's won't last forever but are not really fragile either. xero shoes are also a brand that is know for using lasting sole material in minimal shoes like their xcursion model (they also have sandals) and their soles are even a bit thicker then lem's, about 8mm total stack height i think.


super thin shoes are not ideal for some tasks, but are good training for your feet. you can sense which part of your bones you rest most weight on, which allows you to become aware of silly motions with excessive pronation or supination.

for long distance running (40min) a foamy stack height of 15mm > would be better. for lazy walking, foam on the heel of a zero drop shoe is comfortable. for running, you should never go over the heel so it doesn't matter.

i can't get my head around why anyone would want arch support. perhaps this is related to how people always wear shoes that are way too narrow, and break your outermost toe, preventing you from resting your weight on the outermost toe, were it belongs, forcing you to pronate your foot and rest much of your weight more on the inside of your foot, which can only be done if you have arch support, because the arch is not designed to carry weight, its hanging way up in the air, duh.

once your cartilage is broken from permanent supination tho, you may be unable to put your foot into a stable, upright position. however, if you always have had arch support, then your cartilage should not be too broken, even tho you are used to pronating and resting your weight on your arch. hence you should still be able to put your foot upright, without support, if you only get a shoe, that is wide enough to support weight on the outermost toe. do you ever get pain in the middle of your foot? its a pretty sure sign of too narrow shoes. when the toes are twisted, their joints don't align well with the walking motion.





in regards to your action movie, i have two philosophical suggestions.

you should not enact the cultural script of the lonesome cowboy who sacrifices himself to protect others. this is out of date and is illegal. you should demand loyalty and protection from others, who you protect. mutual protection. no chance this guy is insane enough to attack all of you at once. you only go there with witnesses, all of whom have smartpones and if youre gonna protect anyone with a gun, dont just protect yourself, meaning dont be alone with a gun, only use it to protect others, who are going to be witnesses of your motive. use the presence of others to protect yourself in this way. if you're ever alone with a lunatic, run.

also it sounds like this guy is not a killer in cold blood, but a paranoid who feels threatened by a dog abusing family and wants to intimidate you into more conscientiousness, with empty threads, to protect himself from legal threads you may have plotted upon him, for stealing/saving your dog.

also: does your mother have a hibernate button or whats this talk about "paralyzing" someone? a demented failure at finding the right metaphorical expression?

I didnt intend on dying, and I wouldnt do it if It werent under legal circumstances.

not sure where you are from, but my people shoot up public places on the daily, yo. If you dont think someone would do it, you must be really far away from where this shit happens. At my old house, in one year, something like 13 people were murdered within a mile from that house, not a single case solved. I would bet my life they didnt even try. Im not asking anyone to come move stuff with me, after a person just said they will shoot up our house.
"hey guys lets all get shot together!"
"i dont want to get shot"
"but we can record it"
If I had more friends with guns I might, Americans do seem to just be itching to kill people.

You seem to really underestimate how insane people are, I have links if u want them.

To paralyze someone is to damage their brain or spinal cord so that they cannot move.


I would rather not be a part of any of this, its not like I want to.

When I was younger it always made me laugh to hear on the radio that a police officer was killed. There is a very valid reason for that.
these people arent heroes, they arent noble, they are lazy, they do not care enough to actually do the job they are paid to do. When you fail to do you job, and people get killed, because of you, well you lost any value to me. If the police handled this correctly, they would have at least searched this maniac to see if he had guns (not very helpful since you can legally just hand your friend an ar15 or shotgun) but its fucking something. Maybe take him to jail for a single night, maybe stay while we pack things? The police are crooks, as I already said, give me the same immunity and let me handle it. I have yet to meet the "good" cops. I guess the bad apple doesnt fall far from the barrel of rotting apples.

When my house was getting robbed, the police showed up with two cars, lights on, on one side of the house, they waited for me to get there, and in the meantime, the robbers simple took the pool ladder and just walked out of the back of the yard. They are either dumb as fuck, or intentionally did it, to avoid any conflict, also avoiding catching them.
wanting to rely on someone else to protect you, and legally needing to, is ridiculous. If i shot that guy, I would be a murderer, but they would be heroes, just doing their jobs.
hypocritical bullshit that a 2 week course makes you infallible.
I guess if I lived in a nice area though, I wouldnt hate the police, because they probably do their jobs. idk. where I live you are more likely to be killed by the police than whatever you call them for.

by sacrificing yourself i meant going to jail for killing someone without having evidence that it was both self defense and a confronation you did not deliberately seek out or provoke.

to damage someones spinal cord is attempted murder.
if they are only paralyzed, its coincidence.

i know america has neigborhoods that collect antisocial people but i have a hard time believeing those people would bother to save a dog. but perhaps i misinterpret the motive of the act. perhaps he just took the dog because he could, like "finders keepers". perhaps he abused the dog for fun. anyhow, dont be concerned with my lack of imagination. it just really seems you are identified with a heroic script that will get you into jail or killed. if this guy is so dangerous, you can't go there. you look like a child and speak like a muscle from a movie.

:/ I was raised and taught to handle issues with violence. I mean, I tried calling the police. Sorry im not as old and manly as you think I should be.
Im glad I dont seem threatening, its a huge advantage. Its certainly better than looking tough and being spineless.
it just really seems you are identified with a heroic script that will get you into jail or killed.
As opposed to? Sitting around watching netflix, letting others who cant defend themselves handle a lunatic? He isnt even mad at me, Im only involved because I would like to protect a person involved. Sadly im doing the job of the police.
The goal is to not go to jail, and avoid killing people, I will keep you updated.

you run around with weapons and speak as if you know how to use them. its a false self. you are too weak for combat. by visual appearance, i see you as intp, not estp. as such, you are not even aware of your environment. your reactions are super slow. tertiary Si is all you got. you enact a fantasy.

i always pretended to be a cowboy, when i was a child. i carried a playmobil gun, every where i went. i pretended to myself, that i have the power to preserve my boundaries. but i don't.

the true intp is everyones bitch. its the only survival strategy that works for you. you are either all alone or you provide a service for others. you are patiently helpful according to your best abilities and in doing whatever you can, so long as its constructive and not too short lived, without ulterior motive, you enact unconditional love without even trying. you'll also be everyones bitch in jail. probably one of the best bitches, tender and loving. embrace the truth.

> Sorry im not as old and manly as you think I should be.

i hope i corrected this false impression of where i am coming from.

i wish you the best of luck. its honorable that you try to help, and this part of the story is inline with your true self, but the gun toting thing does not fit in. take care.

Eh, I think its a bit silly to argue with someone about who you really are.
I do have a few questions though:
Do you know how to fight?
are you strong?
could you kill someone?
do you know how to use a gun?
do you know how to maintain a gun?
are you soft?
you seem to be projecting your weaknesses onto me, but if you answer yes to these, you arent.
:cat:
You should look into wrestling or boxing shoes if you want thin soles and a very natural feel, I prefer them since they can be tied tight and up past ankle. I ran around barefoot often when I was younger, I wonder if that has anything to do with not needing arches?

In other news, many shoe soles shall be obtained from my junkyard tire!
It took maybe 2 hours, for first hour I didnt know good strategy, then I figured it out. People on yt use 2 people... but when you do everything alone, you become quite crafty.
(old shoe sole for size comparison)

Im going to buy this, and tear ratchet system out, replace wire, and replace shoe eyelets with heavy duty d loop eyelets. According to internet these ratchet systems are amazing, and quick to put on and take off, along with lasting longer than laces. Im excited for project :D

you are projecting your idea of what you consider to be strength into the world to the point where you define even the police as being weaker than you, when their approach is rather sensible and lawful, because they don't violate somebodies rights, just because you accuse somebody.

whats worse is that these fantasies of being a persecutor are unlikely to do you a service, because you can't actually live up to them.

these ideas are ideas of your pathological environment.

i was projecting my own spiritual strength upon you.
i was hoping you had it in you, to zap out of this self destructive folly.

but my ability to VI people is rather bad. your eyes look Se on one picture, Si on the other.

perhaps you are another ISTP. then you are one step closer to the ESTP ideals of your verbal value system. if type goes not by physiology, but by verbal attitude, you are certainly ISTP.

this also goes for ISTP:

if you think you can do this sheriff stuff better than the police, become a police officer and get paid.

otherwise proving that you can shoot somebody or break their neck it isn't worth the risk, prison, death.

obviously protecting property at the expense of your life is a bad deal.

you have to plan with failure in mind.

only go into a gun fight if dying is worth it / you got nothing to loose / eternal persecution is the alternative. also plan with profit in mind, because living without profit is failure that you can't afford in the long run.

there is an ugly ass INTP in every police station.
he is doing a desk job but initial education involves some action.
or, if you are ISTP, you will fit right into patrol.

tell those officers you want to become a cop. perhaps they are suddenly a hunded times more willing to help your family out. understand their point of view tho. they have to abide by the law. they cant just go and invade a guy's place because you suspect he may have an illegal gun.

Police are in a position to do the right thing without consequence, others arent, so we sort of need them to do their jobs. They are morally bankrupt, as they do not do their jobs. The system, of having bystanders who arent involved, deciding, doesn't work when they dont care.
If I were paid to fix a car, and I was lazy and did a half ass job, and they died because of it, I would be to blame.
when their approach is rather sensible and lawful, because they don't violate somebodies rights, just because you accuse somebody.
sitting by doing nothing is only sensible if you arent the one in danger of being murdered, having your house burned down, or maybe if you give a fuck. It is not a violation of a persons rights to cease a weapon they are planning to use for illegal murder, especially not when you have 3 witnesses, and a person who lives in the house being shot up is a little kid. I promise if I said I would shoot up one of the cops houses, I would be in jail and they would search me for guns. Because then they would care. People become cops for the expensive cars and power. I would never want to be a cop, because I have no desire to deal with them, or people in general, but if I were, and that were my job, I would be inclined to actually do it. Im not getting paid to help, Im doing it for free, because I care. I really dont like letting bad things happen, regardless of who it hurts, so when I do get that rare chance to make the difference, I try not to sit on my ass making excuses.
understand their point of view tho. they have to abide by the law. they cant just go and invade a guy's place because you suspect he may have an illegal gun.
They are the law, and they are indifferent. You dont get it, this is america, this place I live. You can have combat shotguns, rifles, ar15's, handguns, etc, no permit, all legal, not registered. you dont need an illegal gun, you can just have weapons capable of killing 20 people without reloading. You have the same mentality as the police, its not my problem, dont make a big deal. It is sort of a big deal.
Im not close to my family, at all, but im still not going to let a psychotic idiot kill my mom or nephew. Im a decent person, or I try to be.
You seem to be ignoring what im saying at this point, im not sure how, but despite being quite calm, I can really piss people off.
