    Wasn't much law in them days. Or judicial infrastructure. You might have a sheriff and maybe a courthouse fifty miles away. Sheriff pretty much decided what was a crime and what wasn't. And they could be bought off.

    People who wear shirts or sweatshirts with the name of the place they're visiting/living.

    People who wear t-shirts or sweatshirts with nothing but a huge company logo on them.

    I grew up in the era of Ocean Pacific and Esprit, and I just don't get it.

    Although Mr. West's sendup of the concept was pretty amusing:

    I don't see the point in paying extortionist prices for a plain cotton tee shirt.
    People are absolutely Re***ded if they do happen to buy such a ridiculous thing. o_O

    I did this once. In my defence, it was because I loved the place I was on holiday. Newquay in Cornwall. :love:

    Okay, Newquay in Cornwall sounds cool at least. But Boston, Providence, Block Island, and P Town? Not cool. Maybe it's a New England thing for me.

    "So, when are you guys gonna have kids?" -the Mother-In-Law to be

    Neither of us want kids. We've talked about this extensively and we've always agreed on it. I don't even hate kids, I just have no desire to have one! I'm not mom material!

    I know it's just a classic MIL thing to want grandbabies, it just makes me so uncomfortable every time it comes up. We're not even married yet and I can already tell this is going to be an ongoing Thing with her. Yeesh...

    My mom said that. She was 100% right.

    So long as the gut reaction is a resounding "NO" it's not up for discussion. And that includes from the MIL :wtf:

    You'll know if they wanted you when they go through a divorce and fight over who has to take you.

    Been there done that, actually. From the words of my mama herself: "I love you but I had no idea what it meant to be a mom and if I could do it again I probably wouldn't have had kids."

    She was actually super happy for me when I told her I wasn't planning on breeding. I'm lucky that that's an option in the time and place that I live :D

    "And I've been carrying the both of you since."
    "You can have the house and the fine china..."
    "Yes, all the strippers will be so impressed by the Stanford ceramics."
    "I said the China, not the Stanfords. Maybe we should try leaving him Fire Department again."

    I'll be honest, I've never played Overwatch and I don't want to. But in an idea I had where the Amazons and Gargareans still existed and formed military contractors, I had an idea where on of the Amazons was a cyborg ninja. I wanted as much of her body as possible replaced with machinery, but I couldn't find anything conclusive on such a character. And then I remembered these two jackasses

    Well, both of these feature cyborgs. Only one shows you how much of the guy is cyborg, Robocop. And that's the best I can come up with: the inhabitants of your upper chest cavity and your dome. Sounds fishy, doesn't it? The other not only doesn't show or even tell how much of Genji is machine. All we know for sure is that his heart and face are organic. And presumably his crotch, the way the internet sees it.
    If someone has a better example of a cyborg in this nature, I'd love to hear it

    Ninja from Metal Gear Solid. Cybernetic, resurrected dead guy with active stealth camo. :superidea:
    (Can deflect bullets with his katana, and might be ever so slightly mentally unstable). :p
