Last question.In 2016, The Orlando Gay Nightclub shooting was the deadliest attack on American soil since 9/11. What are your thoughts on this mass shooting and others that have happened recently?

It was horrible. Hearing those voice recordings and texts.. I cried my eyes out. I am absolutely livid that he was able to legally acquire a gun when he was on a terrorist watch list. However, my stance on guns is the same as I stated above^. The fact of the matter is that somebody fucked up and he slipped through the cracks, which should have never happened.

So if it isnt ethical for politicans to tell people they cant then why do you agree with the principle of gun control? Isnt that contradicting? The politicans are the ones who would get that into laws.

Because we are regular people. We don't have a system of bodyguards and stuff to protect us. Politicans usually have some privileges on that matter... but tbh I'm against guns in general.

It sounds weird but people thought they would always be safe in a night club they have security and then this happens, you honestly never know where a shooting could happen one of us could die tomorrow in a mass shooting we never know

There are plenty of knife attacks going on in London. So you don't need only a gun to cause harm. But i think guns just make it worse. While it would be nice having a gun to protect yourself its nice knowing (in England) that essentially no one else has one either. At this point i would say the US is too far gone and better regulations etc is the way to go.

A lot of mixed emotions - I have a co-worker who had a friend killed in the massacre, and I've seen others explain what the shooting symbolized. Home-grown terrorism is real, and there needs to be a way to combat it. What could have been done to prevent that many casualties from occurring?

It's sad and scary. As I said it can happen anywhere and to anyone and it's scary to think that. You go out with friends to have a fun night and don't expect to lose people you love and care about or lose your life.

there was a shooting at a Cincinnati night club about a month ago and I was in downtown at the time. Just knowing that it happened both my parents were scared and texting me and asking if I'm ok. I can't imagine the horror those people went through and since it was a targeted attack on gays it breaks my heart. I have so many friends who are homosexual and just the fact that someone would target to kill them because they aren't "normal" breaks my heart. Prayers to every life lost in that shooting.

To make it short, I just think it's the beginning to a massive phenomenon to come. I feel obviously deeply sorry for the people who have been killed and the families who were affected. This one was clearly homophobic, Dylan Ruff's motive was racist, and so forth and so on. I think some people are lost with how society changes and they can't keep up about it. They internalized traditional values and feel they don't belong to that "new face of the society/world" hence why they tend to embrace more extremists ideologies.

There is a huge identity (cultural) loss among several people (especially the youth) in Wester countries nowadays and they try to looking for point of reference...

With over 7 billion people in the world very little imo. All it takes is 1 fucked up person to decide to kill that many. And if not with a gun then with a truck. Theres a lot of options unfortunately. I still think guns have a overall negative affect but stopping deep-rooted terrorism will take more than banning guns.

The thing is that guns are solely designed for hurting people... Maybe trucks have another purpose, but the only purpose of a gun is to hurt.

Whoever messages me first gets the lucky job of handing out the clue for tomorrow's pit stop.

no it is to kill, what about the animal population like deer and birds and everything, how would people get meat it would all be from a farm 

My thoughts are that as guns are objects with a very specific purpose, they only should be given to very specific people who can understand and put that object to a good use. Regular background checks, psychological evaluations and many more should be permanently mandatory for people to own and continue to use guns.

Oh. Btw you have 12 hours to answer questions for 5 points. Everyone who was there at the start gets 10 though

I agree. And that is the case in many countries. But theres 270 million guns in the us. How do you find them all ? The government cant even afford proper healthcare nevermind a nationwide gun hunt.

Oh, no one wants the clue? That's ok I'll keep it.

Lol i figured somebody would have already messaged you. I'll do it if nobody else has volunteered.

Get your thinking caps on because we're going LIVE tomorrow night at 8PM eastern for a brain teasing Pit Stop  

 

 

I think you meant *HT dont worry I edited it for you Smile

Hey someone is stepping there mod powers up in a bad way! Angry face emoji 

I do wonder if it will be everything trivia or challenge trivia

Hey someone is stepping there mod powers up in a bad way! Angry face emoji 

Dont worry I edited your grammar error too.

Welcome to your second pit stop on this season of...

Today you’ll be playing…

Relm Of HT

Today you’ll be playing my favorite type of challenge, trivia! But this game has a twist based off the TV show Jeopardy. Here’s how it’ll work…

First things first both teams will be battling it out to obtain the most points. Both teams will create a list of everyone present and make a list of who goes first, second, third, etc. You will follow this order the entire pit stop and if someone fails to go when it’s their turn your team will not be able to get the points for that round and the other team will get them.

As soon as I post the trivia question you have the chance to answer first correctly to get the points. The first person to correctly guess the trivia question gets the points for their team as well as gets to pick the next category for the next round.

This is the scoreboard…

Just like Jeopardy, the lower numbers are easier questions and the bigger numbers are harder. There are THREE boxes that will be DOUBLE points. There are 9000s points total(not including the double points) and basically the first team to get more than 4500(exactly 1/2 of 9000) will be declared the winners.  In the event of a tie at the end(which I’m doubting) we will have a sudden death trivia question where one representative from your team will try and answer it correctly before the other team does.

Your answers DO NOT have to be in your team color, just answer them normally. Some answers may be spelled slightly incorrectly(nothing too far off) and can possibly count for points depending on how bad it was spelled. If you completely misspell the answer so badly 1)Read a book and 2)It won't count.

Correct Example:

Q: Who performed at the 2017 Super Bowl Halftime show?

A: Lady Gaga

Acceptable Answer:

Q: Who performed at the 2017 Super Bowl Halftime show?

A: Lad Gaga

Incorrect Example:

Q: Who performed at the 2017 Super Bowl Halftime show?

A: laudy gogo

As you can see we’ll be lenient with answers as long as they’re legible. Try not to mess up too badly.

Here’s how the current leaderboard looks. *updated with last nights drivers seat*

First Place: DanishBoy ---> 50 points

First Place: ItalianBeats ---> 50 points

First Place: Ryan373 ---> 50 points

First Place: Camilinator2370 ---> 50 points

First Place: RLK2014 ---> 50 points

Second Place: InternationalFan ---> 48 points

Second Place: Torstar ---> 48 points

Third Place: Francisco ---> 43 points

Fourth Place: Melm3 ---> 38 points

Fourth Place: Deeper ---> 38 points

Fifth Place: Debut Album ---> 30 points

Here’s what the point system will look like for today’s challenge

First place in pit stop=30 points

Second place in pit stop=25 points

No show=15 points

I already did a coin toss and blue team will get to pick the first category. WE WILL START RIGHT AWAY TONIGHT AT 8PM EASTERN. If you’re late and we’ve already started, sorry but you’ll get the “No Show” points and not be allowed to compete.

Any questions?

 

So like at 8 the first questions in asked or like 810
