Dave Brockie, also known as Oderus Urungus, lead singer of Gwar, has died aged 50. The cause of death has yet to be announced.

I saw Gwar many times and have all their albums. Rest in peace.

Army helicopters are circling above, tanks are driving on the motorway and armed soldiers are marching through the streets. Now that isn't something you see every day. It seems the Nuclear Summit has begun.

Sounds fairly scary. Even more when one thinks of all Crimea-related news.

Is anyone very familiar with the Minneapolis St. Paul airport? I flew through there years ago and I remember it being really organized, but not much else. Wondering if a 47 minute layover there is too short. It's definitely shorter than I usually go for, but it's either that or I sit in Detroit for hours, and I'd really, really rather not.

I have traveled through there several times.  You're gonna be cutting it close, but it is doable.  Last time I went through there, I literally had to run through the airport.  If you don't mind the stress of it and have the stamina, I say go for it.  Also, if you map it out before hand, they have indoor trains that'll get you to where you need to be pretty quickly. 

Thanks for the input, Ionnis. I had to run through Detroit once and it was not my favorite experience, so I'm not too eager to do it again. I don't know what I'm going to do... maybe I missed a better itinerary.

It's one of the better airports to do what you're doing, actually.  Very well organized, not overly large, the indoor trains, and all of the terminals are fairly near each other.  It is, as Ionnis mentioned, cutting it very close, but provided you've done all of your checking-in beforehand, and there aren't any significant delays on the arrival, you should be fine.

Best wishes though.

I found another option that gives me an hour and 15 minutes in Atlanta. I know that airport like the back of my hand, so I'm going to take that one I think. Thanks for the input, guys!

Where the heck are you going where your layover choices are Minneapolis or Atlanta?!   Cheesy

If you can't afford that, don't fly. 45 minute drive + a 75 minute flight.

Alternatively, drive 5 hours. Don't you have a baby? Really, they shouldn't be permitted on planes and there should be an enormous surcharge for anyone under the age of 8.

I'm going in June, but still- it's actually less expensive than the tickets I was about to buy. I was flying out of Dayton. I have no idea why I didn't think of Cincinnati. Thank you.

No. An hour drive to the airport, arrive an hour early to go through security plus an hour and a half flight is still less than the time it would take me to drive by a long shot. And even if it weren't, I really don't want to drive. Plus the current car logistics make driving not an option anyway.

He spent his whole life indoors and has no front claws. I don't expect him to be a master at the outdoors thing.

Ha! I doubt I'll be sleeping. It's a pretty little plane. It's easier to forget that you're in a tube in the sky when it's a bit bigger. Tongue

So I gave my cat away last night.

Why?

The landlady's allergic and didn't like it being around.

Good for you for getting rid of it. You are a man anyhow. It is ridiculous to keep pets. It is like one of the most decadent and gross things in our society. People have warped relations with animals that wouldn't exist without the market for them or would do fine without owners and yet these same animals lovers treat their fellow man with contempt.

Bestiality is everywhere.

And yes, before you pet people respond, it includes you. The solitary oc.netter clinging to their fetishized partner has to account for at least 63% of the posters here.

Working animals are different. And no your dog isn't a deterrent to anyone.

If you can't break the neck of your pet to alleviate the suffering of your neighbor, you need to start thinking about what sorta ethical universe you live in.

So I gave my cat away last night.

Within 12 hours, they may or may not have lost it.

Cats don't get lost. Their keepers do. Really, a cat set free is always a good thing.

He spent his whole life indoors and has no front claws. I don't expect him to be a master at the outdoors thing.


 Cry

I will be thinking of him.....I know mine (even with claws) would be 100% useless outside.....

It seems he realized that good food isn't quite so plentiful on the city streets and ended up coming back.

Hardly.

Ridiculously decadent or not, I liked having him around. At least then it didn't seem like it was just me and my roommate.

Antisocial personality disorder symptoms may begin in childhood and are fully evident for most people during their 20s and 30s. In children, cruelty to animals, bullying behavior, impulsivity or explosions of anger, social isolation, and poor school performance may be, in some cases, early signs of the disorder.


In the 1970s research into prisoner profiles found a strong link between serial killers and a history of cruelty to animals. More recent studies into current and past cases have confirmed the link. Retrospective studies of the life of convicted sadistic murderers and serial murderers showed a startling proportion of those murderers had a history of animal abuse, often starting in childhood. The roll call of internationally infamous killers includes Jeffrey Dahmer, Milwaukee's cannibal killer of 16 young men; Albert deSalvo, the Boston Strangler, who murdered 13 women; David Berkowitz, the Son of Sam; David Harker, Britain's cannibal killer; and even the two 10-year-olds, Robert Thompson and John Venables, who killed toddler Jamie Bulger. They all had a history of animal torture or violence in their youth. Australia has not escaped the profile: Paul Denyer, the Frankston serial killer of three women in 1993, and John Travis, one of the Cobby killers, both have a history of animal abuse, starting in childhood.

Two other very (in)famous cases where animal cruelty was part of their makeup are the Moors murderers (Myra Hindley and Ian Brady) of the early 1960s, and Martin Bryant, responsible for the Port Arthur massacre of 1996, where he murdered 35 people, including several small children, in a matter of minutes.
