  1. Nice. My star nursery receipt shows 1:15pm....looks like a may have literally dodged a bullet. Star nursey on eastern next time

  2. "Star nursey on eastern next time"

    As if that makes a difference.

  3. Boulder/Trop < Eastern/215.....biiiiiiig difference in neighborhood

  4. This is why we have a DEATH PENALTY. No concern for bystanders. The idea that whatever annoys you means you can kill someone... While American longevity is modest to start with it's been decreasing. However, for men, if you make it to 50 or so, your life expectancy INCREASES. Take a look around. If a guy is gonna do something to get himself shot (even military), he usually gets it done by age 35 or 40. Or is it that those who survive are locked up?
