View Full Version : One hot summer night


luv
08-03-2005, 12:55 AM
I woke up this morning thinking, "Man it's really warm in here." I got up went about my day, went to work, came home to a not-as-cool-as-usual apartment. I checked my thermostat. It is set on cool at 74 degrees with the fan on auto. However, it says it is 80 degrees in here. Times like this, I'm glad I rent. I emailed customer service. The fan has been running since I got home at 1AM. Temperature hasn't gone down any. Trying to sleep will be fun.

Should I turn the fan off and just turn my ceiling fans up a few notches until it gets checked out?

Thought so, but I'm such a girl when it comes to these types of things. I didn't want to run my electricity bill up, but thought I would be by running my ceiling fans on higher speeds anyway. I'll do that. Thanks.

Do you live in a neighborhood where u can leave the door cracked or open the windows... the only way I can sleep in the summer is with the windows open letting fresh air in. And take of those damn clothes.... It's all about sleeping naked especially on these hot August nights.

I live on the second floor, so I left my patio door open and my bedroom window open (shades drawn due to sleeping in the buff).

Quit being so hard on yourself. Ya know.... many of the guys that gawk at the 110 lb. anorexic girls in magazines would rather have a real woman...with curves...and something to grab on to (if ya know what i mean ;) ) instead of skin and bones... in real life.(whether they'll admit it or not).

Ceiling fan in my room on high to help circulate the air. I may actually just leave the patio door open. That lets in enough fresh air.

It's not 95 degrees until at least mid morning. I plan on getting up at 11AM. I told them to come after noon. That gives me enough time to shower and get dressed (hopefully). All I would need is them to use the key to get in as I'm walking out of the bathroom in my birthday suit.

ok, now im gonna sound crazy but,
pick up a shotgun from a local pawn shop (bout $100) you dont have to register long rifles, and go to a lew enforcement website. order the non lethal rounds (bean bag, rubber slug, etc). it will take anyone off their feet but not kill.

Yes, and mesquitos seem to like me (must be cuz I'm so sweet). And those huge flies get annoying. I'd definitely have more problems with bugs than I would an intruder. Bugs are much harder to kill.

lol, thats not a scope.
its a tactical light. i also have night rifle sights (glow in the dark w/o charging with light).

im accurate with a slug up to about 70 yards (center chest).

best thing for home pretection is a 410. it wont go through interior walls, so your neighbors are safe.

See what I mean? I was thinking scopes were usually on tope of the gun, so I thought maybe it has the red lazer thing. I'll keep the 410 in mind. Thanks Jelly...I mean Grimm. ROFL

HA... :banghead:

the first one was a shotgun also, but a little expensive for home protection. i'm trying to get Rausch to do the non-lethal 410. if you do try it, let me know and i can get the non lethal at discount.

If it's non-lethal, do I have to register it? And how much are they usually? And do I have to have good aim?

Before you buy a gun.... ask yourself one question. How's my anger, and would I shoot my boyfriend in the foot if i got that mad. I should've asked myself that question before buying one. :PPL: :bang: :bang:

1st: the gun is lethal, its the round that isnt. instead of shooting a normal metal "slug" or buck shot, you shoot a rubber plug or bean bag. it will take someone off their feet, and still break a rib or 2. but it wont penetrate the skin.

2nd: no, you do not have to register to buy or own a long rifle (hunting rifle or shotgun). you can walk into a pawn shop or wal-mart and walk out with one.

3rd: aim is not really inportant with a shotgun depending on your shot type. with the rubber buck shot, just point and shoot for the most part.
inside it should be a given, if the racking sound doesent scare them off 1st.

Okay, say this guy is right on me. I just think a rifle would be difficult to get up and ready to shoot. Something smaller would seem more plausable to me. Can you load the same rounds into a pistol or handgun?

no.
i would advise everyone to at least take a gun safety course.
you have to apply to purchase a handgun, and if you want to carry it in Mo. you have to take a concealed to carry course and test.
i prefer to keep both though. Also, handguns take a bit more work at being able to use, especially i high stress situations, such as a night prowler when you not in complete control of your senses.

Tazer makes more sense to me than a rifle. I'm assuming it's a smaller rifle though. Ya know, if I had good aim, a bb to the eye might do the same trick.

It's so cold in my basement I need a pair of sweats! My AC went out a couple weeks ago and with a call or two I was able to fix it my self. It was a power problem though and that was easy to figure out. It was a fuse in the on/off switch by the furnace unit. If the fan runs it's not that. Froze up or out of freon or a part or a compressor....I'm freezing...
