That is one of the dumbest ideas I've heard in some time.....sounds like a good way to get yourself kill/hurt.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Hey! Great idea. It used to be the thing when the mob ran Las Vegas. I'll bet there are plenty of "missing persons" in some of the foundations of buildings here. Not to mention that we have a lot of empty desert around us. Plenty of places to get rid of those pesky accidents.

LOL True! I guess i'm just old fashioned.

Of course, i have always wondered how much an insink garbage disposall will handle. I wonder if the RotoRooter guy ever pulled up a jawbone?

Sheer stupidity and quackery.

You guys realize this is from the Daily Mail, right? The British equivalent of the National Enquirer?

Somebody will have to explain to their families why so many of us shot and killed their family members for breaking into our homes. This has to be a farking joke. The only thing I ask is that they bring the paper up the driveway and put on a pot of coffee before waking my ass up.

Whatever moron thought this one up should be retired immediately. It's a good thing we have a Constitution here that protects us from such nonsense.

Just because you can legally own a gun doesn't mean you can defend yourself or your home with it. Hell, we can have handguns (which are illegal in the UK) but can't use em for self defence.

There a saying we have here in the States: "Better to be judged by twelve than carried by six." You Aussies are an independent lot, you may just appreciate the sentiment.

I do indeed appreciate that sentiment, Jpyle!

Have often thought it might well be necessary if I ever have to confront an intruder and I take the grave (legal) risk of hitting them over the head with my special 'mountain-bike-handlebar-burglar-truncheon' There's a strong chance you'd be in deep sh*t for doing that...particularly if the criminal was unarmed.

But as for firearm defence...wouldn't be anything but a totally cut & dried case...it's illegality is assured, full-stop.

You'd go away for many, many years. And have every firearm you owned confiscated + your licence torn up, permanently
