US Erection 12 *AND* 16

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

Friends are in Vegas for the music festival. I should see them Wednesday and catch the details that they may have.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Yes, they're good. Part of the many that ended up holed up at the Tropicana.

I went through a similar situation in Jamaica at a New Years Eve concert, when the bands didn't show up, bottles and rock started getting thrown at the stage, when the truck with the cash from ticket sales started to move, the guns came out.

Except he never said islamic, he was talking about terrorism in general, and it is kind of taken out of context:
Sadiq Khan has said he believes the threat of terror attacks are “part and parcel of living in a big city” and encouraged Londoners to be vigilant to combat dangers.

The Mayor of London revealed he had a “sleepless night” after the recent bombing in New York, and said major cities around the world “have got to be prepared for these sorts of things” to happen when people least expect them.

“That means being vigilant, having a police force that is in touch with communities, it means the security services being ready, but it also means exchanging ideas and best practice”, Mr Khan told the Evening Standard shortly before a meeting with New York mayor Bill de Blasio.

And terror attacks have been part and parcel of living in London since the 1970's:

Or maybe you were referring to that both quotes were fake? :|

The overwhelming majority of attacks are fanatical Islamic nutjobs motivated by religion.

The once a decade nutjob not motivated by religion doesn't instantly balance the tide no matter how much politically correct lefties want to believe.

A quick google search say that only two of the 10 deadliest mass shooting in US history were Islamic related the remaining 8 were nut jobs
