I couldn't find a clip yet, but had a good chortle from the "Dolemite Is My Name" biopic:

"So what'd they say?"
"Shit, we just got into a legal semantic argument over cocksucking."

This is why I get so angry at all the self-righteous "PEOPLE PLAGIARIZED MUSIC AND THEY WEREN'T TALENTED AFTER ALL!" BS millennials and younger post on YouTube. Before the mid-70s or so, everyone borrowed everyone else's music and they were cool with it.

When bands started filling arenas and records started going double platinum, it attracted lawyers who started suing to get a piece of the pie. The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, The Who, The Doors, Bob Dylan....all of the 60's and 70's bands used other people's music and reinvented it. Before lawyers, musicians were flattered if they came up with something other people latched on to.
I'm not sure how cool or flattered they actually were with it. It was just accepted as the norm because the music industry is just pure fucking shit as far as business practices go.

This has nothing to do with Millennials. We've not been the ones suing, it's been the lawyers and family estates of the older musicians. A lot more Gen X than anything else I reckon but also Boomer family members. And hell, sometimes it WAS the musicians from the 60s and 70s going after the big stars and bands that made it huge off re-visited tunes they originally developed (or repurposed as well but don't admit it).
Its record labels that bought the rights (or as has happened, claimed the rights when they didn't even actually own them) that have done most of the suing. They have no one to blame but themselves for the state of the industry, including the litigation aspects.

Go look on YouTube comments for these bands. It's them.
You're the one that bitched about the suing, he was saying it wasn't Millennials suing over that so your raging about Millennials was stupid as it has fucking nothing to do with that. Which, now you wanna bitch about fucking YouTube comments like that's worse? What the fuck are you thinking? I'm sure YouTube comments is entered into evidence in these trials. "As you can see suckfuckdicklick420anarchyxxxXXXxxx says that the defendant stole the song from my client, boom headshot noscoped, case closed!"

The weird baffling part is that you're basically going "well the people complaining suck because the entire industry was a complete and total piece of fucking shit for decades that fucking people over was the norm and people were ok with it." That's like saying well gee no one should give a fuck that Zeppelin and Bowie fucked the same very underage girl, cause like that was just fine back then. No one complained so that makes it all right all right all right.

I'd love to see a guy like this get into a real crisis situation and watch him drop and shuffle around trying to grab his guns.
Depending on which source you find, about 99 percent of weapon owners in America have never gone thru formalized training. And about half the people who have gone thru training actually got a really shitty program run by some gung ho idiot who just read books or watched videos.
Most of the people carrying on a daily basis (concealed or open) are completely unprepared to use their firearms. Or knives if thats what they carry.
I had a couple basic classes then that guy tried to kill me and since then I've had a lot more classes and at this point I think I'm at the beginnin of the Advanced level.

Who would try to kill YOU??? :D

Anyway, most guys think they would be great in a fight despite never being in a fight. Same with being in situation needing a gun...

I vaguely remember someone calling him a manlet, so he shot up a parking lot Yosemite Sam style and got arrested.

Ok, darkswordsman, shorty, et. al. Back to posting funny gifs and nothing but or it's infractions for the sorry lot of you.

How come we dont have a downvoteicon any more?
Did you guys not pay for the expansion pack?






You could be infracted for disobeying the very mod warning you quoted, as could, cough, several others. How . . . thoughtless . . .was that? You could also be infracted for posting a mod question in the wrong forum. Use MD or Forum Issues. Either of those would give you 23 infraction points and trigger an automatic one month vacation with formal consideration, at that point, for a permaban.

Instead, I'm giving you a break, shorty. I hope you can appreciate that. Please think harder and post smarter.

Stolen text from someplace.... enjoy.

Around age 10 my dad got me one of those little badass compound bow beginner kits. Of course, the first month I went around our land sticking arrows in anything that could get stuck by an arrow. Did you know that a 1955 40 horse Farmall tractor tire will take 6 rounds before it goes down? Tough sumbich.

That got boring, so being the 10 yr. old Dukes of Hazard fan that I was, I quickly advanced to taking strips of cut up T-shirt doused in chainsaw gas tied around the end and was sending flaming arrows all over the place. One summer afternoon, I was shooting flaming arrows into a large rotten oak stump in our backyard. I looked over under the carport and see a shiny brand new can of starting fluid (Ether). The light bulb went off in my head.
I grabbed the can and set it on the stump. I thought that it would probably just spray out in a disappointing manner. Lets face it, to a 10 yr old mouth-breather like myself, (Ether), really doesn't "sound" flammable.
So, I went back into the house and got a 1 pound can of Pyrodex (black powder for muzzle loader rifles).
At this point, I set the can of ether on the stump and opened up the can of black powder. My intentions were to sprinkle a little bit around the (Ether) can but it all sorta dumped out on me. No biggie, a 1 lb. Pyrodex and 16 oz (Ether) should make a loud pop, kinda like a firecracker you know?
You know what? Screw that I'm going back in the house for the other can.
Yes, I got a second can of pyrodex and dumped it too. Now we're cookin'.
I stepped back about 15 ft and lit the 2 stroke arrow. I drew the nock to my cheek and took aim. As I released I heard a clunk as the arrow launched from my bow. In a slow motion time frame, I turned to see my dad getting out of the truck...OH SHIT! He just got home from work. So help me God it took 10 minutes for that arrow to go from my bow to the can. My dad was walking towards me in slow motion with a WTF look in his eyes. I turned back towards my target just in time to see the arrow pierce the starting fluid can right at the bottom. Right through the main pile of Pyrodex and into the can.
Oh Shit.
When the shock wave hit it knocked me off my feet. I don't know if it was the actual compression wave that threw me back or just reflex jerk back from 235 fricking decibels of sound. I caught a half a millisecond glimpse of the violence during the initial explosion and I will tell you there was dust, grass, and bugs all hovering 1 ft above the ground as far as I could see. It was like a little low to the ground layer of dust fog full of grasshoppers, spiders, and a worm or two.
The daylight turned purple. Let me repeat this... THE FRICKING DAYLIGHT TURNED PURPLE.
There was a big sweetgum tree out by the gate going into the pasture.
Notice I said "was". That son-of-a-bitch got up and ran off.
So here I am, on the ground blown completely out of my shoes with my Thundercats T-Shirt shredded, my dad is on the other side of the carport having what I can only assume is a Vietnam flashback:
ECHO BRAVO CHARLIE YOU'RE BRINGIN' EM IN TOO CLOSE!! CEASE FIRE. DAMNIT CEASE FIRE!!!!!
His hat has blown off and is 30 ft. behind him in the driveway. All windows on the north side of the house are blown out and there is a slow rolling mushroom cloud about 2000 ft. over our backyard. There is a Honda 185 3 wheeler parked on the other side of the yard and the fenders are drooped down and are now touching the tires.
I wish I knew what I said to my dad at this moment. I don't know – I know I said something. I couldn't hear. I couldn't hear inside my own head. I don't think he heard me either... not that it would really matter. I don't remember much from this point on. I said something, felt a sharp pain, and then woke up later. I felt a sharp pain, blacked out, woke later....repeat this process for an hour or so and you get the idea. I remember at one point my mom had to give me CPR. and Dad screaming "Bring Him back to life so I can kill him again". Thanks Mom.
One thing is for sure... I never had to mow around that stump again, Mom had been bitching about that thing for years and dad never did anything about it. I stepped up to the plate and handled business.
Dad sold his muzzle loader a week or so later. I still have some sort of bone growth abnormality, either from the blast or the beating, or both.
I guess what I'm trying to say is, get your kids into archery. It's good discipline and will teach them skills they can use later on in life.
