I’m a member of a Senior Citizens Writing class. Some are worried that anyone can enter any of several doors and begin shooting-up the large multipurpose building. If the City were to provide the protection wanted, the cost would be transferred to the user’s and that would shut down the attendance rather quickly. But, the problem is solved. No attendance , no threat.May 11, 2018 at 1:06 am #547
Norbert, I was a Batallion CBR NCO decades ago. I understood of all the Colored Smokes, White Smoke, HC, was the most unhealthy. I have been trying to find some reference that could describe any lasting effect. Do you know of any?May 11, 2018 at 5:07 am #551
Being British I’m going to have to say I support gun control. We may have a rise in Knife crime and acid attacks in cities but so far automatic weapons (which would result in more victims) have not been a major problem.
In regards to terrorism while the majority of attacks in the news are currently coming from a certain radical section it would be foolish and blinkered to assume they are the only aggressors and threats. The talk I mentioned, one of the worst plots caught was from an ex military man, no religious affiliation apparently he felt he’d been wrongfully passed over for promotion and then discharged from the service so decided to have some revenge.
So as I am a true paranoid though I can’t see them and they’re not in the news that does not mean they’re not out to get us.May 11, 2018 at 7:09 am #553
Oops, sorry, I have indeed….
I was actually replying to a thought from Sally..
My only excuses are , age and it was past my bedtime… (embarrassing)May 11, 2018 at 7:13 am #554
Sorry – above comment is for KCMay 11, 2018 at 8:26 am #556
Roger in response to reply 533 (thanks AL for the handy numbering). I’ve completely lost the plot which comment of mine were you responding to in which comment of yours?
Sorry I think I need more sleepMay 11, 2018 at 10:04 am #559
I thought this was a politics free zone?May 11, 2018 at 10:05 am #560
@ Sally – If you’ve lost the plot, I think I’ve lost the whole farm. Heh!
OK – I think I’ve managed to sort it out :- (and I hope you meant post #553, not #533 – because otherwise I’m in a worse state than I thought!!)
It starts with your post #487
(since fans sometimes like to maybe also schedule some social time too around those)
then my erroneous reply to KC – post #537 and hers to me – post #545
– mine #533
and here we are. . . I should probably drop the subject now..
I wonder if there’s a way to shortcut/search to specific posts???May 11, 2018 at 12:03 pm #561
Since we are playing on the kitchen theme, I thought this general topic area might be called the buffet — a little of this, a little of that.May 11, 2018 at 12:19 pm #564
Henry, I fear I am the wrong one to ask, as I was never in the military, nor do I have big knowledge in chemistry or medicine. Maybe Nelson knows something.May 11, 2018 at 12:35 pm #565
BDH Member, Maybe threads on chapter or whole book related topics. eg “Can Deadly Precious be a title for Helen without making Maud sad?” It is such an accurate description and her kill count is already started, yet engendered by tragic circumstances. The legends that grow up around outstanding heroes or characters start early.May 11, 2018 at 12:58 pm #566
Roger you are correct I meant 553
I think you were also correct when you thought KC made the original comment.
Being a lazy sod instead of writing in full sentences to respond to her post 483 I copied her suggestions to my note 487 then put my response/opinion after each one. Sort of like copying down a question and putting yes/no after each one.
In regards to a joint conversation time, its about 7pm now in the UK so most people who live this side of the pond will be home probably finishing tea. I’m not sure how that works out for America and Canada. Heck I’m not sure if all of America and Canada share the same time zone from what I’ve read I suspect not.
Hope I got the post numbers correct this timeMay 11, 2018 at 1:05 pm #567
Not a good place to discuss current politics. Only Vampire politics please. Ilona made this crystal clear in chapters posted and I am sure she would apply the same rule here. This is a place to relax and have fun and discuss the relevant works of fiction. It is a refuge from current politics and issues that stress us all.May 11, 2018 at 1:07 pm #568
Its late morning here in Seattle, 11:01am. I am refreshing in hopes of having a new chapter pop up. I live in hope.May 11, 2018 at 1:14 pm #570
Not used to forum and how it works. I can see that its really difficult to follow anything in a linear fashion unless you make it a thread. Not in general. My first reaction to attemting to make orderly sense was it was WTF and this will make less sense and take more time than I have to spend. Posting in general area will just make a mess of mulligan stew out of many topics. I will post topics separately because otherwise no one will be able to follow them in an organized manner with posts that make sense. This could be done with individual topics or new chapter posts. One to a thread so its coherent and followable.
