ZG can't even fit one boob in those bras they have there. That store is for woman with no boobs, but yes that is the madness we saw at other stores. Thanks for the video though and for thinking of me.

It wasnt a mishap but I was in Pet Smart this morning , I used the restroom and as I turned out of the hall there were 2 women standing there one was holding up a giant kong which looks like a big rubber adult toy and its what came out of her mouth that topped it all off . All I heard was the last one only lasted me 1.5 yrs . and she turned and looked at me in disbelief that she just said what she said while holding the ol kong high . I just chuckled and kept going .

Well, I must admit, I got caught up in the Black Friday Madness. Got up at 1 AM. Threw some wood in the furnace. Took care of what woke me up in the first place. Went back to snoring.

Got up at 0830. Made a pot of Kona Gold, some biscuits, country ham, grits and eggs. Had a second cup. Washed dishes.

Having achieved all my goals for the first half of the day, went and napped on the couch.

At 3:00 pm I dived back into the fray. Since my S-I-L had duty with the Sheriff's Dept yesterday, daughter invited me over to dinner today. Drove to her place, goofed around with the Anarchist-in-Training, had dinner, drove home.

Exhausted from not fighting the crowds, frustrated by not looking for a parking place, I shall shortly retire for my evening nap. But first I must decide if I want another slice of pie before or after the nap.

To all who went out, braved the crowds, fought the good fight- My Christmas shopping is complete. There is this WONDERFUL thing called the internet. You should look into it.

Anyone who would take an ass whippin when he's got a gun in his pocket is an idiot if you ask me. I think he did the right thing.

Call me an idiot,but a fistfight is a fistfight,and 99.9% they usually end in an asswhooping for one or both parties,not death... So why even put it on the table of consequences for any party involved. Id take a million ass whoopings before I take someone's life when I don't feel that my own life is in immediate jeopardy.

A guy about 5 miles from my home clocked a guy outside of a bar. The guy was drunk, beligerant and out of control. One punch, he killed the drunk. He didn't expect to do that. He was in big trouble last I heard, but I don't know the final outcome.

So if your 80-year-old father (or grandfather) gets punched in the face he should just man up and dish it out as good as he gets it?

Last time I checked there was no guarantee that your attacker is going to be equally matched to you, or vice verse. Douchebags usually attack people they think they can take down easily. That is how they roll.

There's your point .01 chance. I'm 240 pounds and a pinch over 6 foot. Even if someone swings on me and kills me with a bare handed blow,then the big man decided to take me off this earth, Of that I have no doubt.

You shoot an unarmed man for striking you without a weapon,your likely to stand trial for murder, if you pull a gun on someone trying to scare them and you'll also be awaiting criminal charges. In my state that's called aggravated assault. I'd be willing to bet you stand a million times greater chance of those things happening than dying in a fist fight.

Not to mention the fact that you have to live with your decision to shoot an unarmed man (drunk and belligerent at that in your scenario). This includes taking his life,everything he's ever been and everything he ever would become from him. And taking a father,son and brother from many people. This is not something to be taken lightly,and IMO is never warranted just because you will not use more appropriate means to assess and counter the level of danger you face.

Had a guest speaker at Hernando High School once. He was a former high school student, who should have still been in school, but was instead serving time for the very same thing mentioned with the drunk. I don't remember where it happened, what school, or even the guy's name, but he cleaned the clock of a dude he'd been arguing with, and killed him with one hit.

He was speaking out against school place violence.

I personally will draw on someone who punches me in the face, and I'll tell you why. IMO, to punch someone in the face, that you don't even know, and in a public setting like a check out line in a store, in a heightened situation such as the biggest sales day of the year, proves to me that the person is subject to several issues...

They don't know me or what I'm capable of, yet they chose to attack anyway.
They have no respect for society.
They have no respect for laws.
They likely have no respect for authority or law enforcement personnel.
They obviously DO NOT CARE about the outcome of attacking an individual.

These people that would show such a blatant disregard for all of the above are dangerous people. If you or anyone else would rather duke it out without a loss of life, I can respect that. But these types of people have no sense of moral decency. They are predators. And that's one of the very few things in the human condition that scares me, the situation where a human being will act like an animal.

What else could they be capable of? In this situation, I will immediately go to the most aggressive defensive posture I can. If that means whipping a M1 Abrams out of my puckerhole, I guess I'll be walking funny for a while.
