  1. Metallic epoxy and clear coating takes it up a few notches. Acid is alright, on the bottom spectrum of concrete coloring but more affordable.
  2. Meh, his exacts words were " I tried to set myself on fire." Setting yourself a blaze is fairly simple and effective if you want to be on fire. I'll put him in the bat poop crazy, drama queen Zoloft category along with a former girlfriend. You know, the one that chokes down a handful of Bayer and chases it with a fifth of vodka then proceeds to call 911 right after. Then everyone has to listen why, all the while there was no real danger.
  3. Anthony Jeselnik coined it already
  4. I think my ire steams from my grandfather going through it. That stubborn mule needed some help but he darned if he would accept. So he burned through all of retirement and savings without receiving any type of assistance. Well then my grandmother had to live with nothing for the next twenty years. It was sad.
  5. You have a little validity in I'll share blame in with goal post on a swivel. The OG post was whimsical by nature by. Until responsibility, liberal were drug into the conversation, that was all it was going to be. I think you are not taking advantage of MN taxpayers. But saving them in the bigger picture.
  6. None. That was an error on my part, the divorce, it's shocking for some. For me, a piece of paper signed by another person doesn't mean a whole lot in regards to my spouse and me. Gaming the system is perspective as they already gamed you. And I should of known better here to articulate points better. The goal post tends to get moved around if you're not alert and on point. As this scenario is predicated on the worst case, where in which you have a long term disability and it will ruin you financially. Where in which the end game is not only you drawing healthcare now but a whole platter of gov assit. Which now costs even more money. Strictly healthcare. See goal post reference. As I said most paid. Healthcare to me still represents monetary value. I'll need examples of who gets screwed here to respond. Don't play that game. It's cheap bait for the weak minded. Don't call me a wussy again.
  7. First thing is first. You repeating and hammering home taking responsibility for yourself is leading me to draw questions. You will never hear me make the announcement or for that matter many others either. Why? Because it's what your supposed to do. It's a certainty that if you want to have, be something in this life it's created with your own hands. As blowing a trumpet on a mountaintop that I take care of my kids, show up to work, don't cheat on my wife and etc. Not my style. Now for this Ponzi scheme I've been paying into since the day my old man threw me out of the house as a young teen and the full time job/jobs/companys I have had since then, it's not a matter of standing on my own two feet when I get old, I have had that covered well before life throws me the curveball. I,as many others, have paid for all the less fortunate,lazy,disabled, unambiguous population and if that moment comes when I find it right to cash in my chips, I will. Its my money I earned with a lifetime of long days, sweat, sacrifice and determination. Even if I don't need, freaking pay me. Ill decide what to do with it. ( an anomaly event such as the lottery may alter opinion but I'll still take the money out of principle)
  8. What did make the mercury rise a little for me is, some years ago, in another forum site galaxies away, there was a never dying thread about Redwing dam, night fishing on shallow sand spawning walleyes. Per as usual, you have a dozen or so people posting and 1000s viewing from afar. That style of fishing doesn't pop my top. The unnecessary advertisement of it did. I think people kind of figured out what was counter productive of fishing forums through out the years and it has corrected it self naturally.
  9. I hear where you're coming from. When outdoorsmen worth their salt talk about it concerns of sustainability, it's not about next year, but of many years down the road. If wide spread low populations ever became a real issue, most likely in population hot zones, heavy tourist destinations for starters, it can be corrected with money. You just invest in implementing larger base stocking farms. Ha. Like you just busted out of the closet in jean shorts and a perm. I'll join you going into the breach,I'll be at Sportsman's all next week and as the day is long I will be gorging on walleye, every day.
  10. Mine also. Family, friends, neighbors. Nobody breaks the law. They just always keep. Bring blondy and the kids. Double double. That doesn't get my goat, I don't judge however the math rattles around in my head. Neighbor upnorth to Unk's cabin. 7 people show up to hunt, 6 deer harvested legally, but then then, meh, I don't need meat. Off to the donation shelter. I have a belief that men who spend time on and specifically, part take in these outdoor forums are ones that do ration out their meat harvesting. Me neither. I enjoy their company and the boys in blue and have too, nothing to hide. It's been a quite a few cycles since I had to cover one eye at 1 in the morning leaving the lake.
  11. All you need to know about how the outdoorsman on the other side of fence think, is when they liberalized Pelican a few years ago. While the outcome was terminal for the fish in lake no matter how it happened, at the drop of a hat, the armada came over the hills and took care of business in short order. Leaving a wake of flesh over the ice. It was not the penny loafers and white collars doing it, but the outdoorsman. While we could argue on the percentage of individuals that retain that type of mentality, truth be told you don't need a majority to cause serious problems.
  12. I do not fault this gentleman for his way of doing things. Not at all. However, the fault and problem lies with one letter in the post, "I".
  13. A larger portion of people just cannot see the bigger picture. A whisper of putting slots or a new bag on pan fish and you got pitch forks and sand pounding. The whole idea is preservation and sustainability for years to come and that requires some sacrifice. With fishing forums/media and new technology, harvesting is made so much easier. While some will say you have to still catch them, it is far easier knowing where they're at. You can have a harvesting compound, tech'd out to the max, livable for months on a spot down to the foot. You don't like it, in an hour flat you're and setup on another location. My girly girl of a woman could even go out and fish and catch and she has no business on the water. And at some point, they will have a piece of equipment that you drop down that will give you a full 3d layout. Some sort of under water drone that navigates to the bottom and sits there transmitting back to you. My view on laws, limits and slots is a variant of Louis C.K. as I do not have faith in people making the right call consistently. - The number 1 reason preventing over harvest is the law against over harvest. Cause it really sucks getting caught.
  14. Wow, I wanted to have debate you but after reading this and a few other snippets I run, not walk away. You're an embarrassment. I mean, completely. That thing above me, garbage. Fooled none but yourself. I take my nickname back also. Ish.
