Re: Things that annoy you...

Cutting down trees.

I understand if a large tree is in danger of falling on a house, or its roots are damaging sewer pipes, or it's pushing up the sidewalk.

Re: Alec Baldwin accidentally kills crew member with prop gun

I now realize I know a little more about guns (well, six-shooters at least) than I thought.
I had a couple toy six shooters as a kid and they actually worked the same way - only difference is they...

Re: Alec Baldwin accidentally kills crew member with prop gun

For anyone who knows guns - I'm still wondering: is a hammer drop from just slightly less-than halfcocked (where halfcocked would be hammer's next locking position) enough to fire a bullet?
