    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    classic PHILology

    From Pax Baculum on Phil's recent trip to New York City.

    I was amazed at just how tame the panhandling scene in Manhattan was these past few days. Once a guy silently shook a cup at us, grinning as if we all understood what was going on.
    Did you think he was asking for a urine sample?

    A few people tried to hand us marketing material (I waved them off easily).
    Ooooooooooooooooooh.

    The very first day, only minutes after leaving the hotel, someone approached me trying to get us to buy something. He called me "Big guy." This is a term applied to me often and always seems to signify something along the lines of, "Hello, person who is large enough and irritated-looking enough possibly to offer physical resistance.
    It is SO CUTE that you think that's what he meant.
    I am approaching you with a sales opportunity and I hope you will react without violence."
    He really doesn't get that you can't just haul off and pop people for no reason. Weird.

    Something like that happened in a parking lot in Niagara Falls, NY when I made the mistake of staying on the American side one trip to Niagara. A large man was hitting up people in the parking lot for change; when I saw him I shoved out my chest and headed aggressively past. He simply nodded and said, "Big Guy," by way of greeting without asking me for anything. I'm not sure why.
    He was waiting for you to get further away so he could have an aneursym laughing at you and your puffy chest.

    Knob.
    I dork harder than any of you can imagine.

    My ID, credit cards, and extra cash I carried in an inside-the-waistband travel pouch that rode discreetly attached to my belt by an almost invisible loop of fabric.
    Fanny packs are cool, especially when your gut is big enough to render them almost invisible.

    I think Phil has yet to realize that in his case "big guy" translates in "fat ass" as opposed to someone of my height where it translates into "tall mother f'er" or someone like Anthony where it translates into "jacked up mother f'er".

    How can anyone be so damned paranoid? How do you get through life scared of everything?

    It must suck to be that scared of the world.

    You don´t. You join the NRA and you stay home, plugged into the internet 24/7.
    That civilisation may not sink,
    Its great battle lost,
    Quiet the dog, tether the pony
    To a distant post;
    Our master Caesar is in the tent
    Where the maps are spread,
    His eyes fixed upon nothing,
    A hand under his head.

    Meaning, you are fishing for a wife...? Dude, just order your bride overseas, like all NRA members do.
