Re: Disney World alligator "goes gator".

Is that vultures or lawyers that I see circling over the Orlando Disney? Especially since there is a record of a gator charging the five year old of a British couple? I very much doubt that any local attorneys want to clash with the house of mouse, extremely deep pockets(quarterly earnings measured...

That is why they have insurance... I would bet that a settlement was drafted before the body was even recovered.

Re: Mass shooting at gay night club in Orlando

Yup, see my post above. One more for the list: #10. For those who say "only the police should have guns, call 911", tell them to be prepared to enjoy the company of their attacker for a few more hours. Maybe if they keep him occupied with 3 hours of BBBJs, he won't shoot them. From what I...

Re: Disney World alligator "goes gator".

My home town... Every single natural body of water (except for springs that are too cold) in the state of FL has gators in it... Every one... They are a normal thing there and in most places they are the apex predator. I grew up swimming in ponds and lakes that were full of them, they usually will n...

I don't see it on the FOX site at present, but I thought I read earlier that this guy was a security guard and had a Florida Firearms License? What I guess is the Florida version of a CCL? This guy was eyeballed at least twice by the Feds in the past five years, he had to be on their watch lists. S...

20/20 Report, I had to walk out after hearing the police set up a perimeter and waited THREE FUCKING HOURS before going in.

Latest reports I've seen has it tied to radical Islam. Guns, bombs, Aloha snackbar, the whole magilla. Omar Saddiqui Mateen. As I reflected this morning on the Book of Face, he's probably not an NRA member, but sure as shit, we'll get blamed for it. OTOH, He(Omar) just lent some credibility to Trum...

Mass shooting at gay night club in Orlando

Reports still coming in, maybe as many as 20 to 25 injured, possible hostages... I have seen video already showing squad cars lined up on the street with shots being fired.

Re: Navy Knocking out GPS in June over Mohave

I have no experience in aviation, but I have been told that aviators also learned to navigate prior to GPS. Prior to GPS, most navaids were nothing more than fancy radio direction finders. It can get pretty interesting when your crew is flying a P-3C from Keflavik, Iceland up to Thule, Greenland ci...

The really good ones that embed get incredible amounts of respect from the guys they are around... I am sorry to hear about this man, he seems like he was one of the good ones. At least it was at the end of an RPG instead of at the end of a sword after months of being captive.

Question for you Navy types, RE: Launching carrier strikes

So the US Navy has a video of F-18's launching off the USS Harry S. Truman on their facebook page to go hit ISIS targets in Syria... What I am curious about is why they would be launching with only one of their wing tip rails having a missile on them? From what I can tell every launch they have eith...

Yes, terrorism can't be ruled out. On the other hand, it was an Airbus that was subject to Inshallah maintenance standards. (Inshallah being similar to mañana, only without the sense of urgency...) I'd give it a 50-50% chance of being terrorism. Reports coming in now say it is consistent with a bom...
