You can draw Tephrono if you want. http://www.neopets.com/search.phtml?sel ... g=tephrono

He's just a typical Malevolent Sentient Poogle Plushie... except with a micro-fusion powered, maraging steel endoskeleton.

No doubt they are. But I just wanted to add a bit. Deer and bear will both usually run at the first scent of human, but that doesn't mean that they're both harmless widdle fuzzy aminals that wouldn't hurt a fly. All animals, even the cute ones, are potentially deadly. Even bunnies! If you're... a sc...

Actually, people have been attacked and nearly killed by deer, also. Bambi was a very unrealistic portrayal. Deer are not placid and timid, especially not during the rut. If you manage to piss a deer off, it will try to kill you, and probably succeed if you don't have some kind of weapon and know ho...

Ugh. Haven't been trying to be insulting and condescending, but when people act... like they've been acting, I tend to treat them exactly as they've been treating me. If you immediately start bitching about how the argument is invalid for reasons completely unrelated to its content (which was what a...

I give up. I try and explain things. Barely anyone acts like they've even vaguely been listening beyond skimming for keyphrases to dispute, so I keep having to rephrase and simplify and re-explain, and somehow that's condescending. I say things like "okay, those are your morals which I can't argue a...

I'm sorry you got the impression that that wouldn't satisfy us. I personally would be thrilled if you would change either or both. The picture is just kind of bizarre, on the edge of too-far; the text is large and swears at the viewer. The impression I've been getting is that nothing short of melti...

Several people have said that it disturbs or bothers them, for whatever reason; I think it's rude, deliberately so, to leave it up even after those complaints. It's not like the complainants were unnecessarily rude, in general. No one used all caps or swore or made death threats. The first person t...

And I've offered to change the picture and text. No one said a word about that. They were too busy accusing me of making bad comparisons, while making comparisons that are "bad" by their own definitions. Typical. "You can't compare England with America! Now I'm going to ignore this person comparing ...

Thank you, Silverevilchao. You said it more succinctly and clearly than I managed to. When people start accusing me of things I haven't been doing, I get annoyed. It's only human nature. Also, ChickVW, over 500 WMDs have been found in Iraq. They were hardly innocent. The people fighting there now ar...

(to the suicide person [I've had a hard time keeping track of everyone. Black man at a Klan rally, here]) I should mention, suicide with a gun is not as quick and easy as everyone thinks it is. I actually do have a friend that's attempted suicide with a gun before (but is still alive), now that I th...

Syldssuf, you might get a better reception if you stopped being haughty and condescending. "Ever hear of Rwanda?" Please. That is just offensive because it assumes our ignorance. You could also consider stopping your pained sighing, because it's not winning you any points. Granted, I don't expect t...

I said at the beginning of this "debate" that I don't necessarily attribute the US's problems with gun deaths to our gun control laws, but to our cultural relation to firearms and to violence. I added later that I cannot personally think of any way to change this cultural structure without removing...

Love that you're fleeing the thread before answering my direct questions. I only ask because I suspect you might feel differently if you had personal experience with death by guns. Your relience on statistics suggests that, for all your gun owning, you do not fully comprehend the consequences of fi...

Japan has over twice the suicide rate of the USA. Guns are verboten there.

That's my final bow. I'ma go back to refreshing the news page and waiting for round 3 to start.

It's started! This thread was useful for something after all! Yay!
