Liquored Up Posting

Well, I certainly went off on The Governator in a manner I otherwise would not have, had I not been partially intoxicated, tired, and had just lost money in the casinos.

It would seem to me that the casino industry is basically about getting people drunk enough that they are stupid enough to stick their money into machines that then take it, and make you question whether the flashing lights and spinning wheels are from the booze or are the sounds of the machine taking your cash.  Either way, I’m not a gambler, so I agreed ahead of time to lose about 50 bucks.  I’m not there yet, but will be by the time I depart tomorrow.

I thought about going back and revising the post about Arnold, but then I realized he deserved every bit of it.

    Guns and liquor…..

    I don’t believe he mentioned having guns around while drinking. I do read a few references to casinos. Not a word about guns.

    Jadegold, if you’re going to imply that guns and liquor don’t mix and somehow Sebastian would be that irresponsible, just say so. Then again, personal attacks are your style, aren’t they? You nothing else of substance to offer.

    Why not dance and point about how “wonderful” this law will be for gun control and how the gang bangers will be shivering in their boots a few years from now when the moment they pick up a gun, it will transmit their location to the authorities and everyone can rush off into unicorn sunsets with puppies at their sides?

    Add something meaningful. At least I’d respect you then.

    JadeGold’s behavior apparently hasn’t changed in the ten years since he’s appeared on the internet. He may have been active before 1996 under a different name, but the flat monthly rates apparently enabled this behavior.

    Seriously, check out his Usenet postings.

    I think the hotel would get a little upset if we were drinking while engaging in gun play.

  5. Jadegold says:

    Let’s see, Matt. He’s in Reno at a gunbloggers “roundup.” He has made a number of posts in anticipation of this event discussing which firearms he would need to be taking for the “roundup.” He has also discussed some shooting activities he might be engaging in at said event.

    Hmmm, Matt, it appears someone needs to draw you a map and detailed, step-by-step instructions for you to relieve yourself.

    The fact is liquor and firearms are a recipe for trouble. Especially, when one claims casinos are about getting “people drunk enough that they are stupid enough to stick their money into machines that then take it, and make you question whether the flashing lights and spinning wheels are from the booze or are the sounds of the machine taking your cash.”

    Instead, I’d suggest there’s a large degree of complicity involved; after all, I’ve never been to a casino that compells anyone to imbibe. And I’d further suggest one has to be pre-disposed to gambling (given the casino has a statistical edge placing the odds firmly in their favor). In a way, Matt, it’s like libertarianism–no one forces you to be that stupid.

    We checked the guns in with security at the hotel. They were for the shooting event at which there was no alcohol, and was early in the morning. There was no intermixing of alcohol and guns. Stop being a troll.

    Says you. How do we know for sure?

    You need you ass whipped JG. And you need it done by an expert.

    You miserable piece of shit.

    When I went to Vegas I stayed out of the casinos, and went to ‘The Gun Store’ instead. I rented an MP5 and a Grease Gun. The way I figured, I knew the subguns would ‘pay out’ every time…

    Although, truth be told, at 600 rounds per minute…I think my money would have lasted longer at the tables.

    Are you volunteering, SA? Of course, I suspect you’re an expert on having one’s “ass whipped.”

    Different strokes………

    It’s OK Jade, we all know you have to try and demean other people to make you feel better about yourself. Why don’t you go and make up some statistics about how the “overwhelming majority of gun owners are alcoholics and then never provide the proof? ‘Kay?

  12. Sebastian says:

    Umm… no one died? :)

  13. Sebastian says:

    Actually, because any range would kick you off for having alcoholic beverages present.

  14. Linoge says:

    Here is to hoping that you all are having a good time up there, Sebastian. Alcohol and firearms are definitely things that should be enjoyed, though each separately from the other, as I am quite sure you and everyone else at the Rendezvous did. Thankfully, I am certain that all of you at the Rendezvous are responsible firearm users, and while some of you may be slightly less than responsible with alcohol ;), the rest will police each other. What with the range rules being what they are everywhere concerning alcohol, and you all checking the guns with hotel security, there is little to no chance of problems, regardless.

    Now, drunken posting… that is another problem entirely :). Arnie deserved every bit of it, but I am sure looking back on it, you were a little surprised.

    In other news, trolls will be trolls. Pat them gently, point and laugh, but try not to feed them.

    I don’t think I would have been ringing the ~1000 yd plate with Joe Huffman’s Remington 700 had I been in any sort of state of intoxication.

    If you’re accepting volunteers you can put my name at the top of the list. Let me know, maybe we can work something out.
