    A$$hat #1, if you don't want kittens, "fix" your :kitty: companion! This is what is "affectionately" called Kitten Season by people in animal rescue for a very good reason! (This is what sparked my rant here: http://www.freep.com/story/news/loc...-sewer-humane-society-huron-valley/513008001/)

    A$$hat #2, if you don't want kittens going into your yard, call the ASPCA! DO NOT TRAP THEM UNDER A BUCKET IN THE FLORIDA SUMMER TEMPERATURES. One of the :kitty's had to be euthanized (story is here: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/police-1-kitten-dead-after-florida-man-traps-2-under-bucket/)

    A$$hat #3, just because you can do something doesn't mean you should, ESPECIALLY if it involves a legitimate government program. Robbing people without a physical weapon still is robbery, and several people lost their homes because of your greed (link here: https://www.washingtonpost.com/loca...56bd5568db8_story.html?utm_term=.151b34848a38)

    People, I'm just a photographer- not a plastic surgeon. The camera only shoots what it sees. Don't blame me for that great pockmarked orb sitting atop your neck. I didn't put it there!:eek:

    Re: Aussie #162 - I'm "good lookin" bald headed - you can photograph me forever but without Photoshop you can't change that! Because of the success you've experienced as a photographer, you are undoubtedly great.

    What pisses me off are those who (unlike you) don't have the cojones to stand up for their art...

    I am trying to figure out how to photograph our impending complete solar eclipse (in my specific area of N. America) and trying to do so without blinding myself! Wish I had your knowledge, artistic ability and expensive equipment. I have designed quite a 'jury rig' incorporating welding lens and white boxes. We shall see.:rolleyes:

    Oops, sorry if I strayed from op :) ED

    Retouching photos, post production is interesting... I had someone clean up my blemishes and age spots...the end result didn't look like me...

    I know they were trying to improve things, but I appreciate what mother nature has provided in people.

    But am also aware of the benefits of post to allow folks and the picture to look their best.

    That's exactly right. Hell, I can do anything you want in post, but who's fooling who? It won't be you anymore. I've had that complaint before as well. Bloody can't win sometimes.

    Oops!:oops: Said that wrong. Should read; "Favor for a photog mate who had to bail last minute." I don't do weddings if I can help it.

    To Whom It May Concern,

    If you're feeling horny, get a fooking room. State Fair isn't the place to "get it on", especially if there are kids around. Hell, your arrests were national news! *headdesk*

    A$$hat #2, since you had enough time to take videos of the couple "entertaining" the public, you had enough time to either interrupt them or get State Fair police to interrupt them. WTF is it about posting it on Facebook? The New York Times even wrote something about said incident!

    To Whom It May Concern,

    There is a time and place to show one's injuries. A restaurant/eatery/diner during lunch is not one of them! Please keep your bloody leg off the bloody table where people are eating! Thanks.

    This just came in: the community room in my apartment complex is temporarily closed due to fooking bedbugs. Ditto the first floor laundry room.

    D@mn good thing that I haven't been in there (the community room) for quite a while. Unfortunately, I live on the same floor, plus the manager's office is only accessible through the community room (does anyone else see the problem here?)

    That's awful! Only good thing about bed bugs is if you find out about them from an adorable bed bug sniffing dog. You're still stuck with bed bugs but at least there was a cute pup. Not sure if there are bed bug sniffing ::kitties::

    There aren't, and I'm highly allergic to dogs! I can't win for losing.

    I have a complaint. Thanks to a certain forum member and the weekly Skype guitar lessons he's provided my daughter-in-law to be; I now have an Aboriginal gal on my sofa playing acid-rock guitar licks. I feel like I'm tripping man...:cool:lol!

    Actually, she's getting pretty good.:)

    A$$hat #1,

    There's a limited supply of eclipse glasses due to a shortage. You were fooking lucky to get several pairs for $1 American. Now, why have you gone on to put most (if not all) on a known online auction site for at least a 10,000% profit, leaving many people who want/need them for legitimate reasons high and dry?

    A$$hat #2,

    Why did you start fooking fisticuffs after finding out that the venue had run out of glasses? Especially when you were told that they were selling more the next two days plus the day of the event. You were going to the event, anyway (or you were planning to before you were busted.) Now, your kids are not going to be able to attend their field trip to any of the events around the city, and they might have to miss school the rest of the long weekend (if not longer)

    A$$hat #3,

    What gave you the idea that it would be a good idea to threaten both a staff member and an on-duty uniform officer when you tried to cut in front of several other people who were in line for the fooking glasses, claiming that you had been in line since 2:30 in the afternoon with three other people? I know for a fact that you weren't because I was ahead of your group (and I didn't get on campus until after 4 pm, plus I stopped to pick up something to eat with my medications [a requirement for three of them]...)

    To Whom It May Concern,

    Just because someone is not allergic to cats doesn't mean they aren't allergic to dogs.

    Ditto to all of my allergies (the list is rather long.)

    I'm not including all of my other medical conditions.

    Funny that. My mom was allergic to some cats, but not others. We had this poor little fellow growing up that I loved dearly, but every time he got within 5 feet of my mom her eyes would swell shut and she'd start sneezing. He was a short hair too. We ended up having to give him away.:(

    She could be playing Something In the Air by Thunderclap Newman or Rock and Roll All Night by KISS...
