  •  I take it more as a light-hearted yarn ... (10+ / 0-)

    which sort of relieves a bit of the high intensity goings on around here lately.

    But ... I do see your point.  There is a meme being tossed out like a big fat fly on a line and the trout do seem to be rising to it, with mouths agape.

    The one permanent emotion of the inferior man is fear - fear of the unknown, the complex, the inexplicable. What he wants above everything else is safety. H.L. Mencken

      Then they came for me - and by that time there was nobody left to speak up.

        I'm not the one who was gullible enough to fall for a transparent lie.

        Thanks for providing multiple posts proving your gulibility.

          for not knowing when the F104 came on line or when a particular weapon became available.  It is odd that one wouldn't question why a group of military personnel were carrying around personal weapons rather than issued weapons or that the discharge of so many weapons on base would have no ramifications let alone not a single wound on a bear or even given that all shooters missed that the bear wouldn't have hightailed it immediately upon commencement of the cacophony of gunshots.

            Even the least sensitive of bullshit detectors should be ringing on this particularly transparent happy-crappy bullshit.

            One has to really want to be fooled to fall for this one.

              that was my point.  Although I know plenty of people who are easily fooled by a good story - I should know I have told a tale or two.
