Senator Greg Ball session comments - 1/14/13

I couldn’t have put it better myself. Gun control helps no one. The idea of imposing stricter gun control laws in the hope that it will help eliminate mass shooting tragedies is logically flawed. Chicago, a city with some of the most strict gun control laws already in place, had 516 murders last year! 

http://www.nbcchicago.com/blogs/ward-room/Chicago-Already-Ahead-of-2012s-Murder-Rate-185868072.html

and is already out pacing last years murder rate. The city of Chicago has already had 24 homicides this year, 20 of which were from gunshots!

So, how the hell is tougher gun control laws, like the one in place in Chicago, going to help curb gun violence? IT’S NOT! Criminals couldn’t give any less of a shit about a gun control law or assault weapons ban. 

re-blogging because I can.

so we got a second large shelf to stow our beer bottle collection on, which is good since it was undignified having new bottles sitting in a box next to the main shelf

every shelf in these pictures is three rows deep - the stuff on the outside that we sorted is mostly brews we either really like or have a lot of bottles for, and it tends to get rotated every 3-6 months so other bottles get to see the light of day. the rules for the collection are as such:

  1. To be eligible for the collection, the beer must have been drank either a) at Robot House HQ (aka my apartment), b) by a person currently living at Robot House (so myself or Charley), or c) by a credited member of the Robot House collective, preferably at a party or excursion in which many Robot House members are attending
  2. No mass-produced American adjunct beers - crafts and imports only. Crafts by large companies (such as Blue Moon) or very large craft breweries (such as Sam Adams) are permitted, but they’re toeing the line a bit.
  3. No duplicates. Every bottle in the collection is unique, and duplicates will be weeded out if they’re found.

And yes, those old-school cans on the top row of the second pictured  shelf (including my personal favorite of the entire collection, the blank white BEER can) are legitimately part of the collection - my local bar (the Crescent Moon Ale House in Omaha, NE) bought a large collection of old beer cans last year, in which there were still several hundred which had beer left in them. So, they decided to sell tickets to a “vintage beer tasting” where we’d pretty much grab them, crack ‘em open, and have a good time. Strangely enough, I did not die when taking part in this adventure, and I managed to get several vintage cans added to our collection in a 100% legitimate fashion, which pleased me greatly.

and I thought I had an extensive beer bottle collection lol.
