Bad parenting or tragic accident

A 9-year-old girl vacationing with her family accidentally shot and killed an instructor at a shooting range, authorities said. The shooting happened at 10 a.m. Monday at Arizona Last Stop, a tourist spot southeast of Las Vegas. According to the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office, the instructor – identified as Charles Vacca, 39 – was standing next to the girl, teaching her how to use an automatic Uzi. The girl’s parents stood nearby, capturing video of the experience. As the girl pulled the trigger, the recoil caused her to lose control of the gun, with Vacca accidentally shot in the head, the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office said. Vacca was flown to University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. Sam Scarmardo, the gun range operator, was distraught about Vacca's death. "It's like losing a brother," Scarmardo said. "These aren't employees or associates of ours, these are family. We're all family." Many gun ranges allow children who are 8 years and older – with parental supervision – to shoot firearms, Scarmardo said. "We instruct kids as young as 5 on .22 rifles, and they don't get to handle high firearms, but they're under the supervision of their parents and of our professional range masters," Scarmardo said.

First Dates

Reading the letter from yesterday got me to thinking about first dates. I know we've probably talked about this before but so what! Dammit we gonna talk about it again! But not about the best or worst first dates. That's too easy. Let's talk about your list of "do's and don'ts" of first dates. Do you have a set of rules that you won't or will do on a first date? Be it giving head or paying for your meal or the full date or whatever. Are you more a go with the flow type of person. Does the type of date play into what you will and won't do? Speak on it!

Why are y’all mad at the ALS Ice Bucket challenge?

So for the past few weeks social media has been filled with videos from celebrities and just regular folks doing the Ice Bucket challenge to bring awareness and to donate to ALS. In case some of y'all don't know what ALS is: Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as "Lou Gehrig's Disease," is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed. Some of the videos have been downright entertaining! Like this Dave Grohl's Carrie inspired challenge: So the basis of the challenge is to dump ice water over your head obviously. Then you donate to ALS Association, then you challenge your friends to do the same. Sounds kind of fun yes? Well the fun police have begun to make these types of comments: y'all wasting a lot of water. Why not just donate, [...]

Love your lines….

apparently there is a campaign on instagram for women to share photos of their lines (stretch marks). I'm going to assume to empower them? I don't know, I'm not going to go around showcasing my flaws. What do you think of campaigns like this? A good way to empower/boost self-esteem? or some attention seeking boolshyt? Here is the link to their instagram if you want to follow or submit photos to love your lines
