    I just posted a year's worth of location data willingly on the internet. Probably because it doesn't say anything that I haven't already told y'all. Also, it doesn't have the time component in image form.

    Hm, maybe not. Reviewers are saying that the narrator reading through the many tables in the book gets kind of mind numbing. Mayhap I'll look for it at the library instead.

    Okay guys, please advise:

    There's a bunch of anti-abortion people set up at walkway crossings throughout my campus today. Normally I wouldn't mind as a lot of annoying people tend to stand in those areas yelling about whatever cause they're trying to promote, but these guys have big posters with shock images of aborted fetuses everywhere. It's frankly completely tasteless and offensive.

    It really pissed me off, so I'm considering going to and trolling them.

    Here's what I was thinking:
    Write "FREE ABORTIONS" on a big poster and then go stand near them with a hanger. (Y/N)

    Other suggestions are welcome.

    That's dangerous, Winky. Who knows how mentally unstable this group can be.

    Yeah but making fun of them makes them the butt of a joke! And no one wants to be that!

    If you are actually offended due to the shock images, e-mail the appropriate people at your university, ccing it to your tutor, head of department and members of the Executive and possibly the Student Union if they have any power, making clear that you are offended because of the images, not that you're denying their right to free speech or whatever. Trolling them really isn't going to achieve anything.

    This isn't a little thing, it's a big organized effort. The posters look professionally made. As it is, their damage has already been done. Luckily I saw a lot of students walking away angry and laughing out loud at the posters. What I want to do is make them look as ridiculous as possible.

    These people were at my undergrad every year. We called them the McDonald's Abortion people. We basically ignored them because any attention given was basically legitimizing them.

    Every time I fight in a dream it's always in slow motion. It really pisses me off. I never have a cool anime fight in a dream.

    I hate it when you swing a punch in a dream and it's hells of wimpy when it connects and does no damage at all.

    That reminds me of a dream I had the other night.


    Not long after I got married an ex basically flat out propositioned me because, according to her, she and her husband hadn't made it since they conceived their child. Who is four.

    So in my dream I dreamt that I, I guess, took her up on her proposition and when I opened the door to... somewhere her husband comes flying out of no where and beats me up because every punch I throw at him just slides right off his face.

    First of all the fact that you are even angry at all means you lost. Secondly. When you go stand outside with your sign make sure to bring a camera along.

    By lashing out it feeds their thought process they are fighting the "right" fight. People see their stuff but if you ignore them their message makes no effect.

    Its like the preacher who came every year to my college and did hellfire and brimstone sermons because people would screen at him and make him feel like he was doing something.

    Though really classic hellfire and brimstones are something to be heard.

I've started to break that habit so I could get some cash to buy a 3DS or something with it.... But it took about 4 years of my wife talking to me about it for it to finally sink in.

    Like I said, stand next to them with a "FREE ABORTIONS" poster.

    Or I could go another way and stand next to them with just completely ridiculous claims that "agree" with them. Like "Jesus Christ was a fetus once. Do YOU want to prevent the Second Coming?"
