Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles." - Jeff Cooper

That is what I've settled on as well.

is thisgoing on everyday for april?
I am Center-Left Libertarian. (-3,-3) on the Political Compass. My friends call me Whiskey cause I was named after a bottle of Jack Daniel's.

My boss called me a few days ago to tell me we are having a meeting at work. The entire restaurant. Meeting. I guess we are going to clean up the place and get it ready to open back up. yaaaay/s I honestly dunno if I am ready to go back to work, but I don't really have a say in the matter I guess.
Also, I may start keeping a Dispatch on all of my Signatur updates, I dunno, I figure it may be neat to have this little journal esque thing to keep everyone updated on my life cause why not.

We use to do in person meet ups. I went to one and missed out on the second one because I had to work. Turned out I lived on the same tiny island as a mod at the time. She was cool, I wish we could have hung out more.

I'll probably forget about this by the time it happens and sleep through it. Also, I'm not much for day drinking and this hits me at 1pm.

I'd assume that since this gathering is "happy hour" i.e. there is drinking involved, that the people at this virtual party will be of the correct age.

Why? Being in the virtual presence of drinkers isn't (afaik) illegal anywhere. It's not like being in a bar (drinking or not, forbidden).

The host is in the US, would it therefore follow that no-one under 21 should attend? That would rule out 18-20 year olds who can legally drink in their own countries.

It's not for you and I to decide, and the host is conveniently a lawyer. But that's just my take.
