I’d like to know why I’m getting porn texts. They are even more disgusting that Oz.

I am that Masked Man.

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.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

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.

(Inspired by a popular meme)

You guys are getting texts?



It is what it is.

It bears mentioning, do not open the messages, swipe-delete.

I don't know, I find Dr Oz more disgusting than pretty much any porn out there.

Ugh, knew I should’ve kept quiet. But seriously, no one gets sleazy text messages? I swear a jerk of a neighbor put my number out there.

Mine are mostly about wetness.

Takes forever to block them then delete. And I found some today that had already been blocked! Apple needs to bring Messages into the 20th century. Seriously, you have to move the cursor around twice on each one. Why no keyboard shortcuts or mass deletes?
