The Abode of McThag: Defintitions

Quick thoughts on McThag's post "Definitions."

Quick thoughts on McThag's post "Definitions."

McThag had a good post about making the "no fly list" the "no buy list."

Cut and pasted:

It's not that we want terrorists to get hold of guns. It's that what we'd call a terrorist won't match what will be a terrorist by law. 

So, how does this apply?  Look, I'm going to make this fast because I've got a lawn to mow and only a few hours before the storms roll in again.  

Politicians tend to aim for the low hanging fruit.  They make some half arsed definition that may or may not have real world application.  And those on the no fly list, a good number of them are on it because their ID got stolen after they traveled to a nation that was not as stringent with their security procedures with passports as the USA is.  

Look at the AWB.  You could still purchase an AR as long as it didn't have too many "scary" items attached.  Look at the bullet button in California.  It is already been bypassed.  

The law is a scary thing when it is drafted incompetently.

I found my old World of Warcraft guild.

Got bored and started searching random terms on Google.

How you word something determines how the results show up.

Today I randomly googled my old guild name and added "World of Warcraft" after it.

I just found that my old guild, "Love Me Dead," is back up and running.  But on a different server than the original.

I recognize a few names on it.

So, pretty much a blast from the past.  Not too sure how to describe my feelings.  I had a lot of fun playing WOW and I loved the social aspect of the game.  But it's not enough to get me back in.  I enjoyed my time on WOW, but it was a major time sink.  I had a lot of fun with the people I met online, but I've lost track of most of them.

It did bring back a lot of good feelings.  But if I went back to WOW it wouldn't be like the old days.
