I'm pretty sure the table on the left would break under the weight of that behemoth TV.

In fact, our spare TV,  also an older model like that, recently caused the legs to break on the TV stand it was on.

This would be a discussion better had in the relationship thread, but the relationship thread deserves to die, so I do not think that we can move forward with the topic at this time...

dis·in·cen·tive (/ˌdisinˈsentiv/)
noun

a factor that tends to discourage people from doing something; the opposite of an incentive.
Worship is theology, so a church which brings Evangelical and Charismatic "praise & worship" into its corporate life is no longer Orthodox.  It is, by definition, heterodox.  Those "Orthodox" leaders who make theological arguments for the incorporation of heteropraxis into the life of the Church are heretics.

Beautiful redhead trying to seduce me.  She knows that if there is one thing that I cannot resist, it is a FAL.



Your pictures are often educational. If I answered 50.63 on a quiz, would I get the answer right?

On or more serious note, don't you thinking handing a redhead a 100 round magazine is foolhardy? They have a reputation (which may or may not be true).  But why take the chance?  Is it the danger aspect?  I am trying to understand.

I would die happy. No cancer. No diabetes. The last thing that my tired eyes would see is a beautiful woman emptying 100 rounds of 7.62 NATO into me. It would not hurt long . . .
I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.

I suppose with a moment to think about it I'd expect a variety, like with most places; but if you had said "Croatia" and then asked what image first came to mind it would have been more like this:
