Seriously, I like guns. I like booze. I like near nekkid awesomeness as much as the next guy. But this is wrong on a bazillion levels.This guy violates damn near every safety rule going, and deserves to best deleted from the genepool, post-haste.

Let’s have Darwin awards for all the people standing around not actively stopping this guy from being stupid, or at least not running far away in fear for their lives.

2. BrewFan - September 15, 2009

What Larry said.

3. lauraw - September 15, 2009

Somebody should have beat him with that gun after he fell down.

4. daveintexas - September 15, 2009

I don’t think I would have stood there pointing a camera at him. A pistol maybe.

5. Pupster - September 15, 2009

Yep. Don’t do what Donny Don’t does.

6. Mark in NJ - September 15, 2009

Camping with Phil Spector

7. skinbad - September 15, 2009

I was hoping he would hold the butt to his nuts when he pulled the trigger. I feel cheated.

8. kevlarchick - September 15, 2009

I had to read your comment twice before I got totally grossed out Skinny.

9. skinbad - September 15, 2009

10. skinbad - September 15, 2009

And where did he produce that knife from, anyway?

11. Dave in Texas - September 15, 2009

Why do morons survive this sort of thing but I slip off of rocks?

Ok nevermind.

12. wiserbud - September 15, 2009

Why do morons survive this sort of thing but I slip off of rocks?

Hey, you survived, didn’t ya?

Moron.

13. lauraw - September 15, 2009

Yeah, so that happened. And Dave got up and posed for the camera and showed his good humor. Very graceful dismount to that little sitch.

*curls lip and gives wiserbud a shitty look*

*curls lip and gives wiserbud a shitty look*

What did I do to deserve that? I gave him another beer, didn’t I?

15. harrison - September 15, 2009

I’m really sorry I missed that scene.

16. harrison - September 15, 2009

Oh, and do that lip curl-thing again.
Yowzah!

17. Michael - September 15, 2009

What did I do to deserve that?

Ignore her. She’s being all sensitive and empathetic again, like an actual female. It’s annoying.

18. daveintexas - September 15, 2009

I woulda gotten a 9.5 cept for the bleedin part.

* hugs Laura all up, winks and laughs at wiserbud gettin the stinkeye.

Haha! Stupid wiserbud.

19. wiserbud - September 15, 2009

She’s being all sensitive and empathetic again, like an actual female. It’s annoying.

Must be Scott posting under her nic again.

20. wiserbud - September 15, 2009

Haha! Stupid wiserbud.

Keep it up, Nemo. Next time I will cauterize the wound with my lighter after I pour the whiskey on it.

21. daveintexas - September 15, 2009

Actually I think you saved my arm with that shit.

22. Mrs. Peel - September 15, 2009

Does anyone else have the feeling that there’s a story they’re missing?

23. Michael - September 15, 2009

Thanks for buying a new iPhone. We love you.

25. Michael - September 15, 2009

Peel, Dave slipped on some algae or something and fell in the water at the Connecticut moron meet-up. There was a steep rock drop-off. He claims that he was still sober at the time.

Wiserbud saved his life by pulling him out when he was about to drown.

Meanwhile, in the humid air, Lauraw’s hair was frizzed up to about the size of a the Goodyear blimp.

Man, I’m sorry I missed it.

26. wiserbud - September 15, 2009

Wiserbud saved his life by pulling him out when he was about to drown.

Sorry about that, everyone.

27. daveintexas - September 15, 2009

I’m surprised you could hold the camera so steady you were laughin so hard.

Well done.

28. Michael - September 15, 2009

I’ve decided that Dave’s .38 Taurus is my new carry gun any time I’m near salt water.

29. daveintexas - September 15, 2009

Peel., Michael, check your gmail.

30. daveintexas - September 15, 2009

>> Thanks for buying a new iPhone. We love you

You’re welcome. According to the upgrade deal you’ll be loving me for two more years.

I swear, it’s just like the printers racket. The money is in consumables.

>> Meanwhile, in the humid air, Lauraw’s hair was frizzed up to about the size of a the Goodyear blimp.

It was awesome.

31. Michael - September 15, 2009

I swear, it’s just like the printers racket. The money is in consumables.

That’s actually an amazing business model. You basically buy a highly sophisticated printer/fax/scanner at cost for your home, representing extremely sophisticated technology, and they make a living off of the proprietary cartridges of replacement fluid, which are exorbitantly expensive. The industry has never standardized replacement ink cartridges.

This business model is unsustainable.

Cathy gets our printer cartridges refilled at those little booths you see at the mall now where they inject new fluid with a needle.

It’s amazing how free markets work in the long run.

32. daveintexas - September 15, 2009

Consumables for printing has been the model since Christ was a Corporal. Even back in my young IT days, printing costs were ribbons, ink, toner and tick charges. Same for copiers.

It’s completely sustainable from the business consumer perspective. I’m not sending Janet off to get cartridges filled.

Of course, I’m old enough to remember when the old AT&T started ignoring the home consumer, so maybe you’re right. Cause that was dumb as hell.

33. Michael - September 15, 2009

You can’t fight economics. In the long run, price falls to long run marginal cost.

If you want to make the big bucks, you have to innovate and exploit short term advantages. Meaning, the iPhone 3Gs, and the fastest wireless broadband network on the planet which supports it.

34. daveintexas - September 15, 2009

Economics? I can’t even fight fuckin gravity.

35. Michael - September 15, 2009

Cause that was dumb as hell.

Yup.

Today, AT&T has the home video service, competing with cable and satellite, that is ranked No.1 by J.D. Powers.

It’s a new day. AT&T knows that it has to win the home, and integrated, bundled services is the way to do it.

36. Michael - September 15, 2009

Hey Dave, next time you’re bored in an airport, go to att.net. Click on the AT&T Entertainment portal (it’s on the menu at the top left). Free TV shows, all day long, from all the major content providers. It’s like Hulu. We just launched it. You can watch on your iPhone while you wait for your plane. Your choice of all the popular shows.

You’re welcome.

37. daveintexas - September 15, 2009

Can I drink martinis and do that?

38. Michael - September 15, 2009

Yes. Ma Bell gives you permisson.

39. Mrs. Peel - September 15, 2009

Personally, I wish AT&T would quit sending me ads for the uverse thing. I have no intention of spending $600/year on TV when I don’t even spend that much on books, a form of entertainment I actually consume.

40. harrison - September 15, 2009

As long as they’re not “on the rocks!”

41. Michael - September 15, 2009

I have no intention of spending $600/year on TV when I don’t even spend that much on books, a form of entertainment I actually consume.

Wait a few months, then get a netbook dirt cheap. We’ll take care of you.

42. Mrs. Peel - September 15, 2009

Are you talking competition with the Kindle? I am probably going to get a Kindle when I graduate (from my parents; I am not getting a birthday or Christmas present this year for that reason, heh), but that’s a year off, so there’s time for me to change my mind if something better comes out.

43. daveintexas - September 15, 2009

*bonks harrison with a seashell

44. Michael - September 15, 2009

BTW, Peel, NASA TV is channel 264 on U-Verse.

Good stuff. Oh yeah, you would like that quality picture. Just sayin’, don’t be cheap.

45. wiserbud - September 15, 2009

As long as they’re not “on the rocks!”

Can I drink martinis and do that?

Must one be made to choose?

47. geoff - September 15, 2009

I’m not in the market for an iPhone, but now that the iTouch has 120 GB of memory, I may have to avail myself of one. 32GB is turning out to be a little skimpy.

But I’d help support AT&T if I knew that an iPhone with more memory was coming.

Just sayin’

48. Michael - September 15, 2009

Peel, all I can say is what you can read publicly — there is a huge amount of development money right now going into wireless netbook devices that are agile (3g, HSPA, Wi-Fi at Starbucks, home network), and they are going to be a lightweight alternative to smartphones or PCs for internet access, but with an acceptable screen size and keyboard, and a big frickin’ fast chip to boot.

Don’t buy anything right now.

49. harrison - September 15, 2009

*bonks harrison with a seashell

Heh, I’m wearing a helmet.

50. Michael - September 15, 2009

Heh, I’m wearing a helmet.

Harrison, sometimes you say something funny.

Not often, but sometimes.

That comment was a classic example of IB self-deprecating humor, and I salute you, sir.

It was funny.

51. lauraw - September 16, 2009

Oh man, you guys are funny.

I wish you all lived near me so we could do it again this weekend.

Can’t be too greedy though; I am amazed and grateful that people travel any kind of distance to go to these things. Except the CT Morons, of course. Most of them won’t show up unless we host one practically in their backyard (most of them live near NY). You people will come from DC, Colorado, and Texas, but these local guys won’t drive up from Stamford. Oh well. I guess they know me better than you do, heh.

We’ll do another biggie in Spring.
