tampons help with furriness?

They help keep a certain patch of not well manicured furriness fairly unsoiled and cut down on the odor and laundry volume from girls willing to shack up in a Van.

Aye could be just toying with writing my man.

You don't seem to be getting any better at writing text that is understandable or that makes sense. What is the problem?

he not known as blueidiot for nothing.

+65535 since Blue probably only has 64K RAM brain capacity to work with at any given moment. If we throw in and count zero, then +65536

One of my theories about Blue is that he is locked up in a long term care facility that allows patients to have internet access, daily movies, cable TV, video games, newspapers, etc. to keep them occupied doing something during hours they are awake.

I'm not sure about why him and Julie Fern have such a strong long term animosity filled bond.  Maybe they dated or slept together at some point and Julie had Blue committed, I have no idea, it's just a theory.

Bluewarrior, you write and post a lot of text in a manic way.  Almost all of it is rambling indecipherable gibberish.  It appears the educational system in Trinidad failed you and/or you failed it.

! B L U E WAR R I O R..!, another reminder, please take a time-out break to lay off playing video games that are all about violence and killing people/things for a while.  ok?

I agree with everyone who's saying don't take it until your ready. But this is the might be some bitter honesty. You better GET READY!...

I want to live in a van down by the river.

Ha ha.  If you get a good Volkswagen Van and customize it you'll have a rolling apartment and really cut down on monthly living expenses like rent/mortgage payments, utility bills, etc.  Plus, you get to have beach front, riverfront, lakefront, etc. views all over the country whenever you want.  In addition, young chicks totally dig it, but they might be a little extra furry in certain areas so keep a stock of razors and shaving cream (and tampons) in the supplies cabinet, they'll appreciate you for having that stuff handy.

For once in the last ~six years I've been reading this board you made a little sense in a few posts in this thread with decent writing/grammar, spelling, reasoning and morality.  Unfortunately it appears those posts were the result of brief fleeting moments of mental clarity, after which you quickly degenerated back into talking like a pirate mode.

Pick a theme.  Are you going with being a Pirate, a Jedi or a robot constructed by a Sith lord? The aye aye and other Pirates of the Caribbean themed phrasing in your posts is childish. Do you know that real life pirates, past and present, are evil violent ruthless people?

I agree with Julie that you should lay off playing with the video games, fantasy movies and action figures for a while.

Let's not forget this date...
Godless our armed services women and men.

It would be helpful to include a reference so people know what you are talking about and also to spell check/proof read your posts.  Instead of saying god bless you said godless blue moron.  No wonder Julie Fern spends soo much time criticizing you. 

Put down the X-box or whatever video game console controller you are using to play war games every now and then, you are hitting it too hard dude.  For once you actually made some sense in the Iraq thread, but that seems to have been something akin to 'even a broken clock is right twice each day'.

December 7th Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. 

National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, which is annually on December 7, commemorates the attack on Pearl Harbor, in Hawaii, during World War II. Many American service men and women lost their lives or were injured on December 7, 1941. National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day is also referred to as Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day or Pearl Harbor Day.

No one can beat Obama. Period.

Seriously?!??  Have you been paying attention to any of the news about all the disasters his administration has created? 

Just start with Obama care.  That legislation is being dismantled piece by piece and drawn and quartered by the courts.  The list of major administration F'uk ups and resulting disasters is miles long. 

Try and figure out which geniuses in the administration came up with, approved and put into action the Fast and Furious plan where they intentionally put a bunch of illegal weapons into the hands of serious criminals and drug smugglers.  Dumba$ses doesn't even come close to describing the wisdom of the appointed officials that came up with that plan and made it happen.  Attorney General Eric Holder is playing fast and furious CYA, smoke and mirrors, playing stupid/ignorant deny deny deny games 24/7.

A former Obama crony from Chicago, Former Illinois Gov. Rod R. Blagojevich was sentenced to 14 years in federal prison today for political corruption that was in part related to Obama.

The list of negative things goes on and on and on...

Typically I view BlueWarriors posts as a bunch of weird rambling gibberish (that indigo thing is weird dude, it makes you sound crazy), but he has made some really good arguments and solid points in this thread.

The Hussein regime had to go one way or another.  It was a pure evil genocidal, ruthless regime that was a major ongoing threat to the lives of millions of ordinary people trying to live in the area as well as to stability and the possibility of peace in the middle east.  The number of people that suffered daily and that were killed by him/his regime over several decades is mind boggling.  Countless people, even many of his top inner circle people over the years were summarily executed on a whim or because of a sudden mood swing without second thought. 

One example of the ruthlessness of the family is that one of the sons had a star player of the national soccer team executed on the spot (on the field in the stadium) after missing a goal shot or making a bad kick or something like that.  The son was unhappy about the missed kick and ordered his goons to immediately shoot the player in the head right there on the field after the play in front of the crowd.

Hussein had gathered more wealth than 1000s of people could burn through to have a comfortable life in 100s of lifetimes while he left well over 99% of the population of the country with virtually nothing, having to struggle to have basic necessities such as food and shelter each day and living in constant fear of being executed on the spot on a whim.  With the wealth he accumulated while he left the population living in squalor and constant fear of death he built around 28 giant palaces (of the size that it would take years to even visit and hang out in each room of one for a little bit of time), many of which he never even stepped foot in. 

Saddam was given many many chances over several decades to change his ways but instead basically just said F-ck you world and kept killing and taking and oppressing.  He was given the opportunity numerous times to step down and take off with his mind bending amounts of wealth to just go somewhere, chill and enjoy it.  He choose not to do that because he loved the thrill of power and killing people whenever he felt like it. 

The world is a much better place now that he and his sons are gone IMHO. I'm not a fan of the death penalty and would rather he be rotting in a small high security -no escape possible- cell somewhere though, but I'm happy that it was done with a fair full public trial, unlike how Gaddafi was taken out.

I'm sure most people that read this board have been at parties/a club/etc. where a girl gets wasted and would be very easy to take advantage of.  A big indicator of the moral fiber of dudes is how they behave when in that type of situation.  Any guy, no matter his age, that takes advantage of the girl in such circumstances is by definition a sexual predator and should be prosecuted and put in the lifetime sex offender registry since if they are willing to do it once, they will probably do it again given the opportunity.  The guys with a moral compass pointing in the correct direction will not take advantage of and hopefully will try to protect the girl somehow.

What you're describing there is just flat-out rape, though.  It's not statuatory rape.  It's just rape.

Sex between young people that are in a relationship and/or it is clearly consensual/agreed to with clear minds is a different story.  Most prosecutors usually take all these things into account when evaluating/weighing the available evidence and statements while deciding how to deal with the case. 

Sorry, but that's a total bull basis for a law.  What you're saying is that you won't get charged with statuatory rape, even if you are guilty of it, if the prosecutor doesn't feel like it.. unless he does.

A public policy that's based on "well... prosecutors usually won't completely destroy your life except when they feel like it" is bad public policy.

No, that is not what I said or implied.  Statutory rape is still rape.  The age of consent laws vary by state and there are discrepancies between jurisdictions.   

What I was talking about at the end of my previous post is prosecutorial discretion. 

Police officers and prosecutors have discretion to decide whether or not to make an arrest or to file charges with each situation that comes to their attention somehow. Whether that discretion is exercised in a way that you or everyone or whoever agrees with at the time is a different matter. It depends in part on the laws of the jurisdiction, the facts & circumstances of the incident plus the attitude/views/disposition of the law enforcement officials involved.  For police and/or prosecutors to become aware of an incident and get involved there has to be a report/complaint from somebody unless a cop just happens to stumble across people in the act in a public area.

There are plenty of incidents each year (not just sex cases, all types of situations including underage drinking, drug use, domestic disputes, etc.) where the police decide not to make an arrest or the district attorneys office decides not to file charges and prosecute.  That's part of how the criminal justice system works in practice.  Cops that find underage young kids doing stupid things at night/at a party/in a park/smoking/shoplifting/drinking/you name it/etc. frequently just take the kids home (while scaring the $hit out of them on the way), tell the parents what they found the kid(s) doing and then let the parents discipline them.

I agree with GGI about understanding the reason for and justification behind age of consent laws.  Many teenage and early/mid 20s age guys behavior and decisions are heavily influenced by hormones and them thinking with the wrong head.
