    There's active infrared night vision, with illuminators that are outside visible spectrum.
    The facts are indisputable. There is more data supporting the benefits of Conceal Carry than there is supporting global warming. If you choose ignorance, in light of all the evidence, in order to bolster your irrational fear of guns, you are a greater threat to society than any gun owner.

    I think what really scares me the most is... there are actually people stupid enough to go there!

    Reminds me of an Emperor and his "new clothes"!

    Was it Jerry Seinfeld who said that the worst part of being blind must be not knowing what you're actually putting in your mouth when you eat? If I ate at that restaurant, everything would taste like spiders and worms -- I would surely vomit before I ever finished eating.

    I read some reviews of this restaurant on the internet. There was quite a dichotomy of opinions. Most who bothered to write were thrilled with the experience. The others, the sane people, noted that the food was not of high quality, service was poor (what are they, blind?) and they did not have a lounge area. Not to mention it is $100 per person.

    Apparently, it is simply a ballroom in a hotel. The chairs are beach type folding chairs and the tables are some kind of plastic. You wait in front where there is a podium and the staff is casually (perhaps sloppily) dressed. It is not a subdued lighting waiting area that one might expect at a fancy restaurant, but the bright lights you see in a hotel hallway. You go in and have some blind server lead you around. Talk about the blind leading the blind...

    This is clearly a ridiculous concept that appeals to the touchy-feely crowd that adores the opportunity to "see what it's like to be blind." If you want the same experience just close your eyes and walk around your house. Or better yet, go to Ruth's Cris, order a great steak, and when it comes close your eyes and savor a really good meal.

    I maybe a native Californian, but I am not that stupid. That's why we moved out 14 years ago.

    That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about a hundred and nine, ninety five. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right. Shop smart. Shop S-Mart. You got that?

    Yea, I tend to gravitate towards CSI: Miami because I like Calleigh Duquesne. She wears a 1911!

    The thermal imaging sensing cameras and weapon sight would work! Anyone have an extra $12,000 lying around?
