Re: “City Paper interns answer your burning questions about college life

But I buy comics at Green I becoming nerdly? These kids need to look around their own hood a little more. Y'all want some tasty carbs? Visit my good friend Dominique and his charming wife at Café Framboise right off King on Market. Real French people making real french pastries. Breakfast and lunches and then haul back carbs to eat later when studying or pretending to. I stockpile carbs from there and hide it from the freeloaders who are always underfoot lately. Will be back in the States Friday and back in the Chuck in September. First stop Cafe Framboise. Hahahaha Ron, I try to balance my life by only going out Sunday through through Saturday. I can not talk smack about Mama Kim's place however as she has fed my drunk ass and sobered me up in the past. Don't have a clue what I ate but I made it the rest of the way down King to home. I owe her.

Re: “City Paper interns answer your burning questions about college life

I love being at a point in my life where I can laugh at the ridiculous things college kids say. Of course, that laughter is borne of jealousy, but nevertheless:

"I try to balance schoolwork with going out by only allowing myself to go out Thursday through Saturday."

I only pay extra to get wasted three days a week. The other four days, I drink in my dorm/apartment or at my buddy's place so I can convince myself I am not going out every night.

"Working as a stagehand taught me valuable life skills in the most fantastic environment. You're paid to attend shows and the working pace was just right."

Those are valuable life skills, alright. Getting paid to hang out and experience theater performances with not much pressure attached. I predict no difficulties on the road ahead for this kid.

"I share a deep connection with Chipotle."

No you don't. Next.

"Favorite place to study: Kudu."

This is also my favorite place to study (young women).

"Best secret place: The Unitarian Church on Archdale Street has an artfully overgrown cemetery"

It is nice to take time and reflect on all of those dead people. Cause they're dead, and you're still alive. Alive and in college. Cherish it kids. Soon you'll be in the ground too, wondering what the hell happened.

Re: “Palmetto State Armory is arming South Carolina with its own take on the AR-15

I thought to respond to the "people don't need…" arguments against firearms.

People don't need iPhones.
People don't need Porsches.
Men don't need maternity care.
People don't need Common Core.
Girls don't need HPV vaccines.

People may want these things, they may even be considered helpful by some. But they are not needed.

If you don't want an iPhone - don't purchase one.
If you don't want a Porsche - don't purchase one.
If you don't want men to be covered by maternity care - don't purchase the ACA plans.
If you don't want Common Core - go to private school, home school or move.
If you don't want the HPV vaccine for your daughter - don't get it.

If you'd like a well manufactured, American-Made firearm, PSA may have something for you.

It's a choice.

Re: “Blow off summer steam with indoor go-karts and lazer tag at Charleston Rush

We have a go kart place similar to this in the city. I have always wanted to go because it sounds like a lot of fun. They have you first do a timed lap to see where you place and then you start the race and go for around a half hour to an hour. I think it would be fun because these go karts are a lot quicker than the ones at the arcade.

Do you have any older pics. But it was in the late 70's. I wish you could find older pics.

Re: “Hampton Park was once home to bison, otter, and even a lion

In the late 50s and early 60s, I spent lots of Sundays lounging at Hampton Park. My friends and I would take our Sunday dinner and eat it at the park. I remember the monkeys, lion, deer, peacocks, bird house and bison. We would swing on the vines in the arbor area, mostly getting run off by guards when caught. Good memories, indeed.

Re: “Palmetto State Armory is arming South Carolina with its own take on the AR-15

Wow, "wiser." Wow.
Perplexing post. Either you represent the pulsing, mainline hatred and anger boiling within rank and file tea baggers that violently loathe all Americans who don't share your exact perspectives (we'll call them "the lower classes") and you don't write well, or, you're a clever troll parodying said tea baggers.

Then I read your other posts, and yeah, your hatred is real.
So, there are 2 Americas.
Either one is a panhandler/whore/non gun owner (all things you've somehow conflated into a single strawman villainous opponent). Or, one does own gun, and are therefore a healthy, happy, complete Capitalist. I like how you include the meme that the best charity is to buy guns. Because, of course...

Re: “Palmetto State Armory is arming South Carolina with its own take on the AR-15

Most of these comments are about what I figured I'd see. To hell with capitalism, starting a business and hiring veterans - it's all about quitting your job to stand on the corner with a sign, looking for free money.

Why buy a firearm when you can be compassionate and purchase a crack rock for the less privileged? Or, help support these lower classes by throwing them $10 for a BJ in your car. Who knows, with enough BJs, these people may be able to one day own their own cars. Point is, guns are the devil and as long as there's an army of people looking for handouts, no one needs to be spending their hard earned money on any of their own hobbies.

That's what I've learned from The City Paper.

Re: “Palmetto State Armory is arming South Carolina with its own take on the AR-15

As a matter of fact I know plenty of people who hunt with an ar-15, and they're mostly women. Fact is it has a low recoil so it doesn't "kick" like a traditional. 308 or .270 and such. And before you say you don't need 30 rounds to take down an animal, you're only gonna get 1 possibly 2 shots before it runs off. While I chose to use a more traditional hunting rifle, my wife choses her ar, her own personal preference, which has been outfitted with a long range scope making it only practical for 1 shot at a time. In closing, as long as you're hunting from a safe elevation you're always pointing down, making the .223 as safe as any other high powered rifle. Btw, they still only fire 1 shot at a time. I think most people's bias on these machines comes from the misconception that they are fully automatic, when in reality unless someone has modified it, it's still 1 round per pull of the trigger.
