    I did not see a more relevant place to put this, but if you need to move it somewhere more appropriate, by all means feel free.

    As a computer guy and a gun owner, I thought this idea was brilliant: packing your laptop with a pistol in order to keep your laptop safe.

    Of course, it is vital to know all of the rules and laws when one is transporting a firearm, on an airplane or anywhere else. So do your homework first.

    Then again, gun ownership in the USA is rather like an intelligence test: if you own one (or more), and stay out of jail, you pass.

    I don't see anything wrong with that. He conveyed the information clearly, and it wasn't as boring as that speech usually is.

    On most domestic flights, you are permitted one small carry-on bag, and one small bag for personal items.

    That would depend on what else you are carrying, how big the laptops are, what other things you have beside the laptops (projectors, printers, etc.).

    What's your point?

    Your answer to "who puts their laptop in their checked bag" was "People who travel with several of them."

    The point was, why would one have to check any laptops even if they were travelling with several. I thought perhaps there had been a new limit addedas far ashow many could be carried on. I thought I was missing something.

    If not, it seems foolish to me to check any (just my opinion).I used to travel with three of them and they all went into the cabin with me.

    People flying to furry conventions would have a head, paws, or body suit mis-routed. 2 the ranting gryphon mentioned OPs recommendation years ago, nobody traveling with firearms ever lost their fursuit again.
    Gays are prominent members of firearm rights, we do more via the courts, don't like it? Leave.

    Seriously? If you don't like rap, then be quiet. Do you have a problem with his skin color? What if it was a woman singing the coined statement in country or bluegrass?

    How about, you go be a steward on and airline, repeat the same phrase 5 times a day, we'll see how bored you are saying the same thing while wanting to come up with something exciting.

    HEY did you hear about the buzzard who got in line to board the airliner with a dead squirrel in each claw? Yep. And the agent said: "Sorry, Sir; we only allow ONE CARRION PER PASSENGER!!:celebrate

    (BA-doink!)

    BUT SERIOUSLY FOLKS, Once I told them I was going to Dayton Ohio but I wanted them to route my golf clubs to Cincinnatti and my video camera to Indianapolis. They said no, we can't. and I said: "WELL WHY IN HELL NOT?? YOU DID IT THE LAST TIME!!!" :celebrate:celebrate:celebrate

    And me, I don't like "rap" because it is repetitve, annoying twaddle. It sounds like the War Dance of the Retards. But that's just my opinion.

    Quite a few...

    If you want to enjoy some furry videos on youtube, here are a few.

    WhiskeyFoxTrot's vids - Yes, he shoots while in fursuit
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PgxrhZ9wupQ
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c6aIdPbKQjw

    There are others... can't find the full auto video I'm trying to find.

    There are many furs in the military as well.

    I would never have expected the conversation to have taken this turn.

    I am not sure how I feel about it.

    :?

    Why is everything always racist? Before asking such a question, how do you even know my skin color?

    I don't like rap because MOST of it always has "cop killing" jingles in it.

    Oh okay, so... guns must be bad since they are used in so many unlawful homicides...

    I remember listening to rap when I was little, and my parents trying to prevent me from doing so. I tend to come up with arguments against everything which stand. Since when did I ever listen to rap or artists which talked about killing others? NEVER. It's not right to label all music just because some "artists" don't have good intentions.

    I suppose piano music must all be crap, and you don't want to associate yourself with such music? I can show you music sheets like "Ten little n*ggers", by Frank Green, which were shown as such hate, death, and racism through blackface at minstrel shows.

    Not liking music because of a small portion of the artists is absolutely ridiculous.

    Now, I'd rather use a keyboard or piano to play music from Bach, Beethoven, Jazz(Fats Waller , etc).
