Some dude put a can of cat food out for one of our building's "communal cats" (basically roams around but sleeps/is fostered by one of the tenants.

Came home from a late drive and saw an opossum eating from it. I did my best to move slowly around and as I am opening the apartment door I hear a huge thud. The opossum tried to hide/run from me and it basically went under the first step/stair going to the next floor, causing it to fall one story into the lower level below (outdoor apartment). I quickly ran to the staircase to see if it was okay, and it looked pretty dazed but it started walking again. Hid by one of the lower level apartment doors and then came out about 30 seconds later. I decided instead of it trying to climb up and potentially falling again which would certainly kill it if done a second time, I would bring the can of food downstairs so it can finish its meal.

About 2-3 minutes later after I explained to :tits: what happened it was gone, presumably ran off into the lower level picnic/ravine area. Feels :sad: because I did not want it to run/hide from me and I feel like if it dies due to the injuries it's partly my fault, even though I was basically hugging the wall and 15-20 ft away from it at all times.

If It does not die because of the fall, I would have to say it's probably one of the most random :wtf: moments that have happened to me in a long while.
Oh he's fine

They're tough, nasty buggers.

That's awesome, great to hear it. Did they apprehend the gunman/gunwoman? People bringing heat to a mall blows my mind, maybe I've been assimilated to think not having protection is :thisisfine: but I'm still not dead yet so :iono:

My bro has a few guns, maybe if I go to a range and snap a few rounds off I might start to love it but ignorance is bliss.
I carry for work and my opinion is guns in the hands of the general public in a situation like this are absolutely no protection. You won't win that fight and you'll probably hurt or kill someone else. Most people don't shoot enough to be remotely good enough to actually defend themselves. Add in adrenaline and fear...

Learned that snorkeling is not for me this weekend. I’m a relatively strong swimmer, but breathing “underwater” freaks me the fuck out and not being able to breathe through my nose made me feel super claustrophobic. Was cool having the goggles on and seeing how clear the water was out there, but I’d 100% rather have normal goggles and just pull my head up to breathe like I normally would when swimming. I went back out at one point and tried to do that without the snorkel attached, but forgot that those masks still cover your nose and you’re forced to breathe through your mouth. :nope:
Yeah it takes acclimatization in the calm of a pool first, try only the snorkel out of the water and once your brain can process how that works submerge under water with just that equipment. I taught myself and the kids to do it but I wouldn't want to just jump into the ocean with that shit on my face and flippers on my feet.

Yeah I was thinking a lake would be a better place to learn so when I panic and need to pull everything off to breathe normally I’m at least not swallowing salt water and gagging/coughing :lol:

Lol, sounds stressful! A small lake sounds doable or a big one on a calm day. Did you get heckled for it or are your friends nicer then I would be to watch the Incredible Hulk start fussing over some goggles? :lol: :wub:

:lolol: was just Michelle and I plus the few other people that signed up for the same time snorkel tour as us. She offered to stay behind with me, but I told her to go ahead with the group and I’d practice in the shallows and try to join them. Got some practice in and was feeling confident then as I was swimming out to try to join the group the panic set in again when I was about halfway there. Ripped the mask off and swam my happy ass back to shore :lol:

Instructor/tour guide was chatting with me after while everyone else was making their way out of the water and I mentioned the claustrophobic feeling and he was like “oh that makes much more sense.. I didn’t think a guy as big as you would be scared of anything in these waters” :lolol: :massles:

No casualties thank goodness
That's awesome, great to hear it. Did they apprehend the gunman/gunwoman? People bringing heat to a mall blows my mind, maybe I've been assimilated to think not having protection is :thisisfine: but I'm still not dead yet so :iono:

My bro has a few guns, maybe if I go to a range and snap a few rounds off I might start to love it but ignorance is bliss.
I don't own any guns, and I enjoy the freedom to choose not to own them.

The problem, as usual, resides with the extremes on both sides of the debate. You have people who freak out at the sight of a Nerf gun, and then you have people who think it is their 2nd Amendment right to have the gun glued in their hand at all times and their 1st Amendment right to let you know about it. When I was working at a mall a few years back, there was an instance where a guy was walking around with a pistol in a shoulder holster that was clearly visible due to his jacket being unzipped. The mall's main security was notified by Macy's security, who had approached him as a threat and told him he needed to leave the store, which prompted him to start shouting about his constitutional rights and run into the mall. Luckily, the mall guards actually had some training in deescalation and were able to calm him down and explain to him how private property works. He went outside, put the firearm in his car, and then continued shopping.

It's one of those things where if someone wants to conceal carry, then go ahead and do it. Get the training and certification and actually conceal the weapon you are carrying. Those people don't bother me. It's the Mickey Mouse, GI Joe wannabe motherfuckers who feel the need to gear up and brandish weapons while standing in line for their morning coffee that bother me.

Tried snorkeling once on our honeymoon in Puerto Vallarta...never again for the exact same reason! It freaked me OUT. I'm good keeping my head above water thank you very much!

I have really enjoyed snorkeling but also felt the claustrophobia/paranoia in the water. It certainly takes some getting used to, and with the limited air flow your first times, it's really a lot to take in.

Oh yeah for sure. It seemed really cool, loved seeing all the fish and stuff. Couldn’t believe how clear that water was compared to the water at hour beaches just a little bit west..

I’ll give it a few more tries and practice in something smaller than a body of water that covers 70% of the earth :lolol:

I think being in better cardiovascular shape would help as well so when/if I do panic a little I can control my breathing and heart rate more.

I have never actually heard of an example of someone who carried protecting themselves or others in any kind of situation. I have nothing against sport gun ownership (hunting, skeet shooting, etc.) but toting a gun around to a mall or other public area of any sort is absolutely asinine.

This is my thinking as well. I just find the train of thought interesting..."Welp, heading out to the mall to grab some new socks. Let's see...got my wallet, my keys, phone, what else...oh my gun! Can't go to the mall without that!"

I'll say this (again as someone that largely has to), anyone that LIKES carrying a gun shouldn't be carrying one. It is a responsibility and should be treated like ones. If it makes you feel cool or tough time to put it down. If it is required to make you feel safe, time to never pick it up.

I'll say this (again as someone that largely has to), anyone that LIKES carrying a gun shouldn't be carrying one. It is a responsibility and should be treated like ones. If it makes you feel cool or tough time to put it down. If it is required to make you feel safe, time to never pick it up.
I haven't really thought about it like this, but I do agree I think. Most people I meet (here in the southeast at least) who carry are very proud of it and it's pretty :notsure:

That said, there are probably lots of people who carry and don't brag about, so obviously I just don't realize they do. These are probably the more levelheaded owners.

If I am out anywhere in public though, I would feel much better just knowing no one had a gun versus a select collection of responsible citizens.
