@  Shadowwolf3689 : (25 October 2014 - 03:37 AM) and there'll be nothing anyone can do about it!
@  Shadowwolf3689 : (25 October 2014 - 03:37 AM) and force everyone to have ebola
@  Shadowwolf3689 : (25 October 2014 - 03:37 AM) but if we can't have guns, then communist transvestite muslims will take over the country
@  danishali903 : (24 October 2014 - 09:39 PM) But yes, people really need to start taking personal responsibility
@  danishali903 : (24 October 2014 - 09:39 PM) Well it seems like most people would protect the rights of an inanimate object than a life of fellow human being
@  pateceramics : (24 October 2014 - 08:32 PM) Two kids I knew got shot in the head when I was a kid, and a couple more got guns accidentally pointed at them during target practice when some other kid wasn't paying attention.
@  pateceramics : (24 October 2014 - 08:28 PM) And of course, he then has to prove to them that he's not scared of guns, and that they're no big deal, by pointing it at one of them and laughing when they flinch
@  pateceramics : (24 October 2014 - 08:27 PM) If you have guns in your house, the most interesting thing your kid can do when his friends come over is take out dad's gun.
@  pateceramics : (24 October 2014 - 08:22 PM) well spoken
@  Stirling_Rad... : (24 October 2014 - 08:03 PM) http://mic.com/artic...we-re-apathetic
@  Stirling_Rad... : (24 October 2014 - 07:41 PM) And harass anyone who has the power to resolve the issue to finally resolve it - especially in this upcoming election.
@  Stirling_Rad... : (24 October 2014 - 07:37 PM) The public needs to have the will to give up the weapons that are killing people; they need to take the idea that a right to own a gun may lately annul or contradict a person's right to life. And be done with it.
@  Stirling_Rad... : (24 October 2014 - 07:34 PM) If we want to change anything, these shootings and massacres can't be blamed on the NRA, as in rote with much of the media. Nor can we wait to be angry about it till every few weeks when the issue becomes popular.
@  Stirling_Rad... : (24 October 2014 - 07:32 PM) In 1868, an Englishman, Andrew Steinmetz, came traveling here, and wrote: 'America is the country where life is held cheaper than anywhere else'. It seemed true then, and it certainly seems true today.
@  Stirling_Rad... : (24 October 2014 - 07:31 PM) Yeah, they're definitely part of the problem. But our country has had a long obsession with guns, war, nationalism, riots, lynchings, murders - we're often a hard and aggressive country.
@  danishali903 : (24 October 2014 - 06:59 PM) I completely blame the NRA
@  Stirling_Rad... : (24 October 2014 - 06:11 PM) http://mic.com/artic...we-do-something
@  Stirling_Rad... : (24 October 2014 - 05:32 PM) Poor Marysville folk here in Washington. Sad day.
@  danishali903 : (24 October 2014 - 04:46 PM) Another day, another school shooting...only in America
@  Jem7 : (24 October 2014 - 04:01 PM) not much
@  danishali903 : (24 October 2014 - 03:48 PM) wassup?
@  Jem7 : (24 October 2014 - 03:48 PM) hi
@  danishali903 : (24 October 2014 - 03:45 PM) Hello peeps
@  Jem7 : (24 October 2014 - 03:11 PM) wasup

    Is it just a coincidence that every voice part has the range to sing a scale from C to C in some octave? If you want to write a unison section for a choir that spans an octave, it pretty much has to be in the key of C. And this is the key that conveniently has no sharps or flats… Coincidence? Or is our whole musical language built starting with this one fact…
