    Since I am unemployed, I am always home and don't need it. Hey I got an idea. Get a job and then I will have money to buy one.

    Actually, seems like a good idea. Truly, when I do get employed, I may just buy one.

    If it plays fake reality TV shows I might just get one. It's gotta be better than some of the crap that is broadcast these days.

    What are you talking about! Some of those shows have won Emmy's! They have to be good.

    I just leave my regular tv on, or the stereo or whatever. Makes it much easier.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    I have 3 vehicles, and I'm single...nobody else has to know that the 2 sitting outside while I'm gone don't belong to a wife/kid/etc.
