Hot pink is hot.
but not a very phal*lic color.

?? Why the fuss ?? My science daughter would love a telescope in a color she could call her own (she'd prefer yellow, but pink or red is good for her in our household where the rest of us like blue or green).

Why does this bother you so much? What are you afraid of?

It also comes in blue, but I guess that’s not outrageous?

Pink is not on the list of approved colors for a telescope.

Blue is okay if it's a highly muted blue with low value.

This guy also wasted his money by buying a low price telescope with a computerized go-to mount.

No wonder he's trying to get rid of this albatross.

I bet he drives his car up to viewing sites with his headlights on.

"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

You should see all the pink and purple rifles and pistols. I think it makes them look like toys, and that is VERY BAD!

Yeah, I've seen youtube videos of women firing those weapons, and it's kind of troubling.

A pink handgun is probably not a great idea if you have young kids at home.

Black is a good color for a handgun.

So is gun-metal grey.

Or blued steel.

Or brushed stainless steel.

Pink? Purple?

If someone likes it, not a big deal.

There are a couple downsides that are really troubling- one is children mistaking a firearm for a toy, but responsible ownership negates that.

The other is facing such a weapon and having almost not time to decide if it's a gun or a toy.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
