#3030042 the official "Dave Gettleman fuging sucks" thread

Posted by Captroop on Yesterday, 03:00 PM

Negativity is one thing, stupidity is another.


Who's more stupid? The GM who has two seasons to address needs on the OLine and secondary in the draft or free agency, but doesn't, cuts the entire team that got them to the playoffs instead of building on it, and gives the franchise QB weak, slow targets. Or the fans who call him out on it?

We had bad weeks after Pitt and Baltimore blowouts as well. At what point will the jock sniffers stop blaming the fans for the negativity when the on field product is so bad?

Id like to remind everyone that trying to break the ankles of two opposing players after the whistle isn't an offense that gets you ejected from a game.

What's really trippy is that my "bad" left eye can see the image without moving my head at all. I had cataract surgery when I was very young, and lots of random things look different between my two eyes. Especially black lights. They look crazy bright violet with my left eye. Like a neon light.




#3022618 Engagement Rings

Posted by Captroop on 15 October 2014 - 03:23 PM

Diamonds are one area where I would encourage you to leverage connections if you got 'em.

 

I got a steal because my boss was friends since elementary school with a reputable diamond dealer. Got an amazing, custom fitted ring with a stone that was appraised at 40% more than I spent on the whole ring.

 

 

 

 

Oh, yeah. BTW, I got engaged on Sunday.




#3022298 First Case Of Ebola Diagnosed In The U.S.

Posted by Captroop on 15 October 2014 - 12:36 PM

Okay, I'm slowly coming over to the "concerned" side. My mom, who is a PhD in Virology is actually concerned about Ebola. I've seen the media blow up over mad cow, swine flu, bird flu, SARS, Gluten, etc. She never broke a sweat over them, and nothing ever came of them. So I figured this was the same old crap.

 

But if my mom is worried, them I've got reason to be worried.

 

She's not worried so much about this spreading "Outbreak" pandemic style. But rather the mortality rate. In the off chance you contract it, it's basically a death sentence as there is really no treatment for it.




#3021784 Business owner declares her shooting range a "muslim-free zone" and t...

Posted by Captroop on 15 October 2014 - 08:18 AM

I, for one, applaud her efforts to keep Americans safe from dangerous Muslims at her shooting range. I can't understand the backlash Jan Morgan is receiving! Shouldn't we be taking every precaution, and exercising every fail-safe to try to prevent death and injury at shooting ranges?

 

And I feel as though, in an effort to continue decreasing the likelihood of acts of violence being perpetrated against her patrons, she should exclude another high-risk group from her range as well. That is why I intend to suggest to Ms. Morgan that she also ban American war veterans from her establishment. Particularly veterans of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom (OIF & OEF). These people are at a disproportionately high risk of having Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. This psychological disorder make the victim's behavior unpredictable, and often violent. This risk of dangerous and harmful behavior has NO PLACE on a shooting range!

 

For the sufferer's safety and the safety of others, veterans suffering PTSD simply must be prevented from having access to shooting ranges, by any means necessary. But because symptoms of PTSD are often hard to identify to the casual observer or range owner, the only recourse is to ban all veterans from her establishment.

 

After all, it was a white, American, christian veteran with PTSD who tragically shot and killed Chris Kyle and another veteran at a shooting range. Empirical evidence that veterans are not safe to have at a shooting range, because of their higher instances of PTSD. As no such evidence of Muslims killing people at a shooting range exists, Ms. Morgan must be even more concerned by the risk American war veterans present to her and her customers!

 

I feel like, given her steadfast dedication to range safety, Ms. Morgan would be more than amenable to banning American veterans from her establishment. I'm certain she would be willing to post such regulations on her Web site and at her establishment, and explain to any veteran who arrives at her range that while she is grateful for their service, they are simply too great of a risk to injure her patrons due to their lifestyle choice.




#3008575 Down 50 lbs!

Posted by Captroop on 10 October 2014 - 09:30 AM

Pics? :cool:

 

 

Keep it going! My former boss went from 280 pounds to 180 in 9 months when he turned 40. He went nuts! P90x, totally changed his diet, etc. Now he's a fitness buff. Does the Iron Man triathlon, runs a couple marathons every year. It's never too late to make a big change, and no goal is ever too big if you really dedicate yourself to it.

#3008497 Former Panther Steve Justice loses septuplets :(

Posted by Captroop on 10 October 2014 - 08:12 AM

Pro-choice is a two-way street. I don't fault her, or anyone else who chooses not to have an abortion, even if it is medically advisable. People can make the choice based on their belief system. All I ask (nay, demand!) is that we have the choice. Science and Medicine will not tell a woman she must abort, although they can strongly advise it. I ask that the moralistic/Christian right do the same, and not force a woman to give birth by taking away her right to abort, all though they can advise against it.

 

This is a tragic story, and it should not be politicized by either side. No party involved did anything wrong, at least in their own belief system. No one deserves judgement or scrutiny. Everyone weighed an impossible choice and made a difficult decision hopefully none of us have to make.

#3007004 If only there had been another good guy with a gun

Posted by Captroop on 09 October 2014 - 09:44 AM

That's just as ridiculous of a statement.

I've legally owned guns for over 15 years and have never armed any outlaws.

 

In all these gun threads on the Huddle, I've still never heard a good argument in favor of punishing all gun owners because of irresponsible gun owners.

 

Yeah, well 232,000 people didn't this year. It's super fantastic that you think your the magical unicorn "responsible gun owner" but you cannot look at a figure like that and not be shocked at how many legally owned guns end up in the hands of criminals.

 

What you're saying is basically, "I've smoked cigarettes for 40 years and I don't have lung cancer! Therefore cigarettes aren't the issue!" Look at the numbers, Bronn. They don't support you. Honest, red-blooded, responsible gun owners arm 232,000 criminals every year.




#3006930 Working on a new script.

Posted by Captroop on 09 October 2014 - 08:34 AM

Just completed my first draft of my next project. I've never done comedy before but I'm taking a break from drama and gonna try my hand at humor. It's about two childhood friends who after a long break from "competitive gaming" want to try to break into it again.It's foul, raunchy and can be hard to follow if you don't know too much about video games. It's a passion project I've been thinking about for a while so I'm going for it. If you're interested in hearing more about it want to take a look at the script please PM me your email and I'll send it right over.

 

I really hope to improve from my last project so critiquing is welcomed and encouraged. Whether it be script writing, casting, audio, cinematography etc. I love hearing feedback. Some of you gave me some great advice on my last "film" and I am going to use it to my advantage this time around. There are quite a few great people on this forum. Thanks guys and I'll leave a link to my last work below.

 

 

Hey Dex. I have been watching these recently, and thought I would send this to you. Every Frame a Painting does really thoughtful technical analyses of film making. I've learned a lot about shot composition and editing techniques from watching these and I thought you might enjoy them.

 

BTW, if you're still looking to get a script reviewed, be sure to drop me a line.

 




#3005450 Free Republic reacts to gay marriage ban.. ban

Posted by Captroop on 08 October 2014 - 11:29 AM

I just find laughable their screaming that this flies in the face of the culture their forefathers created.

 

As though they have forgotten that the culture their forefathers created was a paradise for puritanical white male slave-owners and native rapists formerly of the landed gentry in England. Yeah no, abortions and gays in love is the thing that has undermined their forced-labor utopia.  More like this is correcting their last horrible black mark on the society they created.
