    Yeah, you can't just post a link without some indication of what it's about.

    Debates (points for your position) made via weblink are not allowed. Weblinks may be used when a substantive summary of the point being made is posted on the board with a link given for further information regarding your position. Remember responsive arguments are to be as personal as possible, not "cut and paste" dueling articles. This can be avoided by giving one's personal analysis along with an article, or just quoting the specifically relevant portions and showing relevance.

She elbowed him in the ribs hard enough to make him gasp and then walked out of the theater.

      She was pretty awesome.

        My wife - well before we first met - once had a workmate of a similar age who liked to get a bit too touchy - touch her hair, put his hand on her arm etc. One day at work he put his hand on her forearm, and she loudly said "Take your time, touch all that you want. Is there anywhere else you'd like to touch, or just my arm?". This in a quite conservative culture where if a couple held hands in public that was seen as basically letting everyone know they were also sleeping together.

        Problem solved, no more over-friendly body language from him.

          That reminds me of another time my wife got fed up with a coworker who used to come in every morning boasting to her office mates about how many times she and her husband had "done the deed" the night before. "Oh, he's an animal! We did it 3 times!" "5 times last night! He's insatiable!" One day my wife looked at her and said, "4 times, huh? That's funny. My husband and I tend to get it right the first time." Her office mate turned bright red and never brought up the subject again.
          Some may call me foolish, and some may call me odd
          But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
          Than a fool in the eyes of God

              That one is funny.

                When my wife and I were dating, I was in judo.
                I was telling her that a smaller person may actually have advantage over a bigger person in judo, when that bigger person is running at the smaller person -- using that oncoming mass and speed to your advantage.
                I showed her how it would work - with her grabbing my wrist, turning her back to me, sticking her hip out, and diverting my body up and around (hard to describe) and she could actually flip me.

                Later that evening, I'm meeting her dad for the very first time at her house - he had been working nights, but was home this particular evening.

                I was nervous to meet him, and followed my wife cautiously into the door, whereupon she said, "hey dad, watch what I can do", and she turned around, grabbed my wrist, threw her hip out, and pitched me across the living room floor.
                I ended up on my back, wind knocked out of me, panting for breath, my feet up on the couch near her dad.

                He looked down at me, then at my soon-to-be wife, and said, "ok, you can keep this one".

                    Aw, come on -- I like living on the edge!

                    I think I told you what happened when I took her to teach her how to shoot, no?

                        I took her to the police range - still dating her. (Well, even after all these years of marriage, I'm still dating her )

                        I gave her my .357 magnum, loaded with .38 wadcutters, and told her "just take a few shots and I'll watch your stance, and help you out..."

                        Her first shot - BULLSEYE. Second shot - just a HAIR out of BULLSEYE.

                        I said, "OK, that's enough for today, we'll come back again another time".

                          I do remember that now...my wife is like that as well. When we went to qualify for our (then called) CCL, my wife brought her .22 because she was told by our security team lead (who had once been a CCL instructor) that she could qualify with it. The course and range were 40 miles away and we had carpooled. But, they had changed the rules and she was informed that she could no longer use it. My pastor let her use his spare S&W 9mm. She scored 243 with a gun she had never fired before.

                            I haven't checked lately - are there still two permits - one semi-auto and the other pistol?

                              I thought they had changed it but I'm not sure either.

                                If I recall, because I'm an old fart, and have had my permit for many a year, I just mail them a check and they send me a new card.
