Inquiring Minds Want to Know (word games)

- Can a deaf person receive "oral" notice under 30.06? What form would it take? Sign language? Wouldn't that be verbal, not oral? It wouldn't be written... :???: Is this a federal ADA violation?

- If a 30.06 sign is posted in the woods and nobody sees it, is it really there? :shock:

- If you mistakenly fire your gun when not intending to, that is a Negligent Discharge...so if you mistakenly hit something with your car, is it a "Car Negligent" ? :biggrinjester: There are no car accidents, only Car Negligents. :nono:

- When the Thompson subgunner in WWII, yells to his airborne buddy, "Throw me a clip!", should he really have gotten tossed an M1 Garand ammo clip with 8 rounds of 30.06 instead of a 20 round stick magazine of .45 auto? Do you think the sergeant corrected him afterword? :confused5

- When the cop asks you if you have any guns in the car, do you say NO even though you have an AR15 in plain view and 2 - .45's under the seat? Then if he sees them, do you tell him you were in the Navy and don't have any 5" guns or howitzers in there, so why is he asking? :mrgreen:

- If while open carrying someone asks if you are a LEO, do you say "No a Scorpio." ? :roll:

- When you go to the Ft Worth zoo, do you ask where the classrooms are if you're CC'ing?

- Do you open carry to Target and then stand in front of the restrooms loudly muttering "Decisions, decisions...". My spouse won't allow me to do either... :nono:

- Is the phrase "concealed is concealed" a violation of Forum Rule #4 or does it depend on the context? :rules:

- Are the Virginia State Police a real law enforcement agency, since Virginia is a Commonwealth? :confused5

Why do we drive on a parkway and park on a driveway?

Why do the airlines ask you to get ON the plane?
The heck with that....I'm getting IN the plane! <RIP George Carlin>.

How can you PRE-BOARD an airplane? It's impossible to board before you board.

Mr. Aasif Mandvi, American comedian, is of India/Indian origin. His family moved to the UK,
where "Pakkie-bashing" is when the white British kids beat up the Pakistani kids.
He was a victim of these beatings, but didn't bother to tell his oppressors that he
was actually Indian. They would not have been interested in the difference.

I once thought I was wrong but I was mistaken.

If a deaf person has a ND in the woods and nobody hears it ... is it a ND ;-)

Actually in Texas, there is no longer such a thing as a traffic accident or accident reports. Now we have vehicles CRASHES and CRASH reports.

So if Attorney Brian Loncar advertises "Have you been injured in an accident?" will he take a car crash case? "rlol"

Okay... Why do hot dogs come in packages of 10 and hot dog buns in packages of 8???

Why does a light switch have a label off and on? When it's on you know it's on and when it's off you can't see to read it anyway?

Why does the news report always say the SUV ran off the road or the SUV hit the car or the SUV hit the person? All of these SUVs running amok... We should pass a law to stop SUVs

Ladies and gentlemen, hobos and tramps,
I stand before you and sit behind you
to tell you something I know nothing about!
Admission is free, you must pay at the door;
So pull up a chair and sit on the floor.
The show is over, but before you go,
let me tell you a story I don't really know :

One bright day, in the middle of the night
two dead boys got up to fight
back to back; they faced each other;
drew their swords and shot each other.
A deaf policeman heard the noise
He came along and arrested the boys.
If you don't believe this lie is true...
just ask the blind man; he saw it too!
