Re: Skoolie on

I dont shop there anyways. They are known for lowering their prices at one store and raising them at their other stores so that they can put the other stores around them out of business and get more shoppers, cause they have nowhere else to shop. Once they start getting more shoppers, they raise the prices at that store.

Re: Skoolie on

[Thread drift] In our country you have NO obligation to show your receipt when exiting the store. Whenever I'm asked to I politely decline and keep walking at my normal pace. Sometimes they just let it go and other times the person at the door gets a little confused as to what their duty and rights are. As I'm walking I politely explain that they have no right to detain me and that they can feel free to take my license plate and contact the proper authorities, but that they better have evidence of my wrongdoing before so. Simply having a computer printer in my cart (which I purchased I might add) is not grounds for accusations of shoplifting. I have never had the police contact me, but I have had a store manager profusely apologize to me. [/Thread drift]

Re: Skoolie on

Oh nuts, Smitty those are only available online. It may not get to me before I need it after i get beat up by walmart employees and die a few days later.
Really though I do shop at a walmart supercenter. I might just as well and save the money while I can bye shopping walmart. I do watch the prices though as there are some things that are cheaper at even gas stations. For awhile i could get milk cheaper at the gas station.

Weird Idea... You were warned.

Anyone else have the idea of turning one of those into a freezer for underbelly storage?
Imagine the looks from the neighbors when you go to get that roast, and slide out a coffin, from under the bus.

No, if I was to do that, I would want to turn it into a dragster... That was the first thought that crossed my mind.

Re: Skoolie on

I agree. I miss living 20 mins from Daryl Starbirds house. When I was 16 I would frequently drive by there just to see what was sitting in the driveway. And then continue on down the road to cruise past Cliffs house where the Wild Stang, Monster Vette, and Frankenstein monster trucks sat outside.

About the coffin... I work security for the Walnut Valley Bluegrass Festival every September. I havent gone the past 2 or 3 years but am going next year.
Anyway, I used to see a coffin on a little trailer come in every year towed behind a hearse/camper. It was packed full of Ice and beer.
This year I found 2 or 3 skoolies down in the campgrounds. Next year I will be stopping by and checking them out!!

Re: Skoolie on

Jesus said to her "I am the Resurrection and the Life, he who believes in me will live, even though he dies. And whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?" - John 11:25-26

Also psalm 91.
1He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

2I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

3Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

4He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

5Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

6Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

7A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

8Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

9Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

10There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

11For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

12They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

13Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

14Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

15He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

16With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

Psalm 94

1O Lord God, to whom vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom vengeance belongeth, shew thyself.

2Lift up thyself, thou judge of the earth: render a reward to the proud.

3LORD, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph?

4How long shall they utter and speak hard things? and all the workers of iniquity boast themselves?

5They break in pieces thy people, O LORD, and afflict thine heritage.

6They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless.

7Yet they say, The LORD shall not see, neither shall the God of Jacob regard it.

8Understand, ye brutish among the people: and ye fools, when will ye be wise?

9He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed the eye, shall he not see?

10He that chastiseth the heathen, shall not he correct? he that teacheth man knowledge, shall not he know?

11The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.

12Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O LORD, and teachest him out of thy law;

13That thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked.

14For the LORD will not cast off his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance.

15But judgment shall return unto righteousness: and all the upright in heart shall follow it.

16Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?

17Unless the LORD had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence.

18When I said, My foot slippeth; thy mercy, O LORD, held me up.

19In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul.

20Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?

21They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood.

22But the LORD is my defence; and my God is the rock of my refuge.

23And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; yea, the LORD our God shall cut them off.
