*sigh* figures. I still think we would be better off if we outlawed guns all together.

They should outlaw at least Hand Guns!
Or outlaw carrying guns in public places.

That law will only create more trouble.
Even your state sheriff is against it!

Like I said before, be careful Venus!

I just think you should have to take a comprehensive course and pass a written and and a practical test to own and use a gun...like you do to operate a car (my roommate's inspiration fifteen to twenty years ago, though I'm sure others have come up with it independently).  And that keeping your gun where minors can get to them should be a major felony....

Why do I get the impression that this law was conceived because of some good old boys being dead-set against having to (horrors) back down and back away if at all possible before fighting back?

This is swerving into off-topic territory, so I'll have my two cents say before the Mods come down on us - I will only make this post - any reponses and I'll make a thread in the Off-Topic area:

As a former Trauma ICU/ER RN, I've seen a lot.  Most injuries that come into the ER's from violence are not firearm related; people will use anything - bricks, sticks, pots, pans, tin cans, etc. to injure others.  Granted, firearms can do much more damage from a distance than say, a knife, but both can be lethal. 

To Venus:  All outlawing firearms would do is take them out of the hands of law abiding citizens that want them for protection (like me).

To Shiny:  The idea for having registration and training courses for firearm  ownership is good and valid, but once again, only the law-abiding citizens would abide by it.

As for minors getting to firearms and killing themselves, I was born in the south and my dad taught me how to shoot when I was 7 years old.  I knew from a VERY early age that the guns in the house were not to be touched by me, and when I was 7, I got my first .22 cal single shot rifle.  My dad taught me the importance of respect for the firearm, the damage that it could do and to always be careful with it.  Granted, we lived in Hartsville, SC where the KKK ran rampant until the mid-70's and they were burning school buses in 1972 when the SC ruled for forced intergration.  My dad was 1/2 Cherokee Indian, my mother full blooded German, so my family was VERY POPULAR with the local townfolk.  The only reason that our house was not burned down (we did have a cross burned in our front yard one night - ah, the memories) and my family still alive is because of firearms.

The gist of what I'm saying is; fireamrs are tools - if someone uses a firearm in the commission of a crime, they should immediately get life in prison, and if they kill somebody with the firearm (outside of self-defense), then they sould get the death penalty.

That's my opinion - if we wish to discuss this futher, I'll start a thread in Off-Topic (unless the Mods or Marc don't want it - there are several areas on the net that cater to this type of discussion).

So this means that Miss Venus is close to wowwing us mere mortals with her latest installment; good, I need SOMETHING to look forward to - got to work this weekend.

Venus, may I once again tell you how wonderful your writing is?

Wowzers! I just spent, like over an hour to read those stories , but I'm a slow reader  :)) I had the soothing sound of Greenday and The Killers to help me to get through it, although I did cry a bit at one bit, and I'm not a person to actually cry whilst reading or watching summit, I only just feel really sad inside. So your story and Goodnight Mr Tom are the two stories to make me cry.

Welcome Pazozo.  I've been a member since July and still have only scratched the surface of the content on PEEL - Venus, Layla, Shiny and several others have written some killer stuff - some better than some actual eps (OK, this story is Venus's first story, but it rocks); there's some killer artwork available.  Welcoming you is also another way of letting Miss Venus know how much I have enjoyed her story (Venus takes perhaps the biggest tearjerker in the 72 ep run of Futurama and makes it a BIGGER tearjerker - that's talent, baby!).

Enjoy PEEL.

Thanks! I've read Shiney's story, but I've yet to read the others. I wanna watch The Sting now bt my 'friend' has my season 4 DVD's and she's had them for a month and only watched one disk *Glares E.Z.S at Imo* O.k, for y'all who don't know what E.Z.S is, it stands for 'Evil Zoë Scowl', which is basically like the scowl Fry makes in Futurama.  :) I have some Fan art here: http://futuristic-dudette.deviantart.com/gallery/

if you wanan visit it, could you make a comment? AND UPDATE OR ELSE!  :)

Venus has other priorities (life, making a living, getting a roommate, etc.), but she is working on the story.  She is also in shock that there is a dedicated Adult (i.e. porn) Leela Page.  Venus is still recovering from this trauma. 

I await the ending also, but the wait makes us savor it even more...

Oh, Venus, you mustn't let that worry you...some people are just gonna go there no matter what their fandom is, and there hasn't been a character in all of fiction that someone hasn't written sex stories for.  It used to bother me a lot, too, but I finally realized that it's NOT about the characters themselves, it's about the people doing the writing.  Some people just see things more...sexfully than others.  It's part of their world-view. 

You don't have to go there if you don't want - your worldview is your own.

Take care,
Shiny

Great. Now I'm worried that I'll find a dirty Invader Zim or Billy and Mandy fanfic.

(The Turanga Pages are indeed scary. The Futurama Outlet didn't have a warning on the button...I thought it would be a regular fansite.  :()

Venus, I hope the writer's block goes away soon. Writer's block sucks.   :(

(darkly)  If you can imagine it, someone else has written it. 

I realized that long ago when I first heard there was Gilligan's Island slash fiction in the world...  :p

Writer's block sucks.

Truer words were never written!


To the Writer's Block Anti-Muse: We say a hearty  :finger: !  Begone, foul varlet, from Venus's brain!


Venus, dear, if it helps, I had Hurricane Katrinarita inspired writer's block until a week ago (Houston variety), and now I'm 75% done with the next bit of my story...when the Block lets you go, it sometimes releases a flood of new stuff.  Like the newly repaired levees over in New Orleans bursting under Rita's rains...(augh, I can't get away from those darn storms...please, someone give me some imagery that doesn't have to do with eye of the storm or up to the eaves in floodwaters or eyes like boarded-up windows or something...  :rolleyes: )

Do not despair.  Sometimes writer's block is just keeping the lid on the boiler while your subconscious pressure-brews the next bit of the story.  (Gee, maybe I should take back the one-finger salute...naaah!  Writer's block STILL sucks!)

Hang in there, Ve....we love you!

Chill, Pazozo, my grateful gargoyle; writing muses can't be forced...they can sometimes be bribed, but the slightest mention of pressure makes them take off for distant climes like dogs when who hear the word "bath".

We wanna write more faster, honest.  But we also want it to be good writing, and sometimes life gets in the way of that.

I'm sorry, I do understand how you feel. I'm writing a Fanfic on Fanfic.net and it's all 'UPDATE SOON' and I have total writers block and I've written, like, a paragraph more  :( And it sounds cool in my head, but when I write it, each sentance sounds bad and begin with 'and then she, suddenly, as he...etc. I'm a hypocrite  :(

A play on words, my young friend.  Pazuzu was the gargoyle's name in 'Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles'.

It blew me away when I first saw the episode. Groenig and company injected something from the dark side when they used that name see:

1. Hopefully it will weaken by then.
2. If something happens to you the balance of power between the F/L shippers and the anti F/L shippers will be upset!  ;) (you can't let that happen!)  :D
3. Given how recent predictions have been it might MISS you!  :)

I sat thru hurricane Hugo (cat 4) when I lived at Myrtle Beach, SC back in 1989.  That's the main reason that I moved away from the coast (Now I just have to endure FEET of snow during the winter).

Stay safe.
