Uh.  The entire thing.  Perhaps you should try and read a single paragraph of the link you created this thread for.

"Following columnist Charles Krauthammer’s observation that the first person to shoot down a surveillance drone on U.S. soil will be a “folk hero,” gun enthusiasts in Texas have done precisely that as a protest against the use of spy drones on the American people."

 

dang infowars....they twist words...alex exagerates things...

...or maybe he just assumes people would actually read more than the first sentence of his article...or at least watch one of the two videos posted on it, before running off to a forum to create a thread on it.

videos are blocked here at work.

i skim over articles.  and I'll be honest...that first paragragh sure does make it sound like he shot down a drone...especially when you skim over the first paragraph.

but...just in case...if I ever see something that sounds totally outrageous...i post it...and sure enough...you guys help me better to analyis it...and in this case...you helped me to fix my mistake.

You mean, read more than the first sentence for you

Here's an idea.  Don't post something you haven't read at least half of...let along start a thread for it.  And don't attempt to editorialize or summarize, because evidently it is too difficult.  Just use the title of the article.

Oh, well that's totally different.  World's apart.  Night and day.  The sun and the moon.  Hitler and Roderick Long.

i don't know who roderick long is. 

i get the feeling you might be like me....a little, john....you probably worry too much...don't sleep good at night...unless of course, you're fat and you're like me...then, you probably do sleep good at night.

i think you and i are more similar than you probably think...

Hence the hyperlink I provided for you to offer context.

Creating threads with completely false titles for articles I didn't even bother to read?  I'm pretty sure I've never done that.

 

you probably worry too much...don't sleep good at night...unless of course, you're fat and you're like me...then, you probably do sleep good at night.

I can actually count my worries on half a hand.  And I'd be willing to bet people would criticize me if I even tried to consider them "worries".  If I was fat, I'd probably have a lot more worries.  Like heart disease.  Do you realize that kills more Americans than any other single cause?  Perhaps you shouldn't be sleeping so easy.

 

i think you and i are more similar than you probably think...

mmm...nah.  Probably more like night and day.  The sun and the moon.  Hitler and Roderick Long.

john...come on....i don't read full articles...unless I'm really really interested. 

and with the fat thing, I was saying, I'm not fat, but if you were, then that could be one difference between us.

but you're right, we're probably pretty different.  i can be pretty impatient...

Then here's a thought.  Don't create threads for articles you aren't "really really interested" in.

John, I do things on the spur of the moment...i get gut feelings for threads i should make.

if you're a hot girl, there's plenty of room for a 3 way friendship.

This is getting more ridiculous by the post.

Gut feelings are fine.  Again, just read the damn thing before you create a thread for it.
