Okay, then let me change my argument a little. I think people can have these weapons in their possession, but with more restrictions. Such as, people shouldn't have these weapons in a household where a mentally unstable person also lives.

I get what ironyismybestfriend is saying. There is no freakin' need for several AK47's to be in your basement. I understand having a pistol or something for protection, and other things for hunting. Keep the extremely dangerous and over the top weapons for the military to use.

But that's not going to solve it completely. The biggest problem with gun laws, is that no one seems to realize how scary it is that anyone can just buy themselves a gun with no license or background checks (depending on the state I suppose) Why don't we start treating the process of obtaining such a weapon like we do on getting a drivers license? It's treated so loosely and no one has done a damn thing about it. Every time there is a shooting we just say "now is not the time to discuss gun laws" but we just need to open our damn eyes and see that IT IS THE TIME.

Lies Lies Lies. 2-year old lies I admit, and probably not malicious or even intentional ones. Judging someone initially on appearance is a reflex, part of nature. It's not a criticism. It's just something to accept. What's important is that we are able to get past those initial judgments. What you do is judge, then quickly tell yourself that your judgements might be wrong, so you give the benefit of the doubt. But you do still make those judgements.

I think we all do judge, but to an extent. Honestly if it's just another regular stranger from school I don't give a damn about what they look like or their appearance. I used to make a big deal about it but I honestly just don't give a crap anymore- I got other things to worry about than instantly looking at someone and making assumptions. I know what it feels like to be judged by my weight, clothes, ethnicity, etc and I have practically trained my brain not to even notice their appearance. Someone could be wearing the same shirt for a whole month and I wouldn't notice. But if you're wearing a flippin' clown suit in the middle of Chemistry class i'm going to be judging you immediately.

You have to have a sense of rhthym as well. My Band teacher attempted me to play the drums but I get so distracted with all the other beats going on in the room I forget mine. It's defintely a lot harder than it looks.

We used to do that a lot in my Karate class. It's pretty easy after the first 2 times. You practice with this breakable plastic thing then gradually start using wood. I was a pretty badass 8 year old bringing one and doing it for show-in-tell if I do say so for myself.

My parents fell in love with each other at first sight on an airplane. My dad was the tallest guy there so he stuck out like a sore thumb.
It wasn't really shallow or anything, they loved each other immediately and kind of already knew their personalities without even having to get to know each other. Kind of weird.

But they divorced 30 years later for different reasons.

If you're trying to pick up a girl on Facebook, you probably shouldn't say "Plzzzzz as long as i can have someone" to get her to change her mind, <strong>amirite?</strong>

I got one from a guy who was 10 years older than me, his wife JUST DIED and he had a 3 month old baby girl. He was hitting on me constantly asking me for ** and I just felt terrible for his wife and kid. I hate thinking about it because at first I texted him and stuff. But I didn't know he had a wife or anything, and he never mentioned dating/**/fuckbuddies.

Now I feel like crap.

It's probably not a completely good thing, but nothing makes me more attracted to a person than finding out they're an Atheist/Agnostic. Mainly because I live in the bible belt south and it's rare.

I have a friend who was born and raised in Canada and she gets soo worked up over the election. Like REALLY worked up. The only information she basis her opinion off is from tumblr and says "I have the right to be worried since what happens in the U.S falls upon us too!"

I don't know why all these people are hating. It isn't that creative a post, but give Anthony and the mods a break. It must be exhausting to sort through thousands of posts in order to find a kick-**** one every day for two years straight. I mean who can blame them for going to an automated system. Anthony needs to use his brain power to work on ending world hunger not picking a perfect POTD every day.

But I agree this post is slightly ****.

I would be fine with it if they had let the users who don't use the forums or chat know what's going on a month ago when it all started, and if they were at least open to people's opinions.
Those are the main two things, at least for me.

If this was done, then I think they're would be a lot less K.O Couldn't they just sent us a message about what the **** was happening? I mean it's a sudden change that we were NEVER informed about. I think that's what pissed people off the most.

It's all completely true. I've had 5 comments deleted under 24 hours. I don't even know this Admin's name and he's supposedly (according to Anthony's website) has been running it since September 29. Tons of people have left already.

That...that just...ugh... (no) what wunderscore said... I was just starting to love this site again.

No one really goes to the Just In page anymore. Most posts are just brought to the homepage by what the mods think are good with a low score.

We don't need to say "amirite?" anymore.

The best amiriters left months/years ago.

A majority of people left are just far left or right wing and refuse to actually debate or talking about something casually (even though discussing opinions is the point of this website) and end up just trying to get a bunch of love's with a stupid joke.

(inb4 POTD hater) The last 2 months of POTDs have been sub-par and some of them completely sucked in my opinion when I know there are better posts out there.

Although I got used to it, I'm still just a little perturbed about the layout change. This probably caused the low amount of people on the Just In page.

Things said against this website are getting deleted. I could've sworn most people read 1984. Guess not.

And yet this place has a special place in my heart and I'll probably never leave...

I do miss the way things used to be. But what other website am I supposed to look at via smartphone while taking a dump?
Though I do have a feeling this website will die out in a year or two.

My science teacher was going over the layers of the atmosphere the other day, and to put things in perspective she pointed out about where he would have been.
We were all surprised by how low it looked on that picture.
