Ok,these may seem like random stupid questions,but its a part of a project Im trying to finish.Anyway,here are the questions.......and say where you are from when you answer. 1: Should the state of Virginia be classified as a northeastern state?Why or why not? 2: What makes a firearm an "assault weapon"? 3:Do you know what a pastie is? 4:Do you use a charcoal or propane grill? 5:Are you afraid of snakes? Okay,again,I realise these sound like weird questions,but Im collecting some statistics for a project like I said.And these are just a few of them............If I listed them all,nobody would bother to read half of them,so I spread it out on several forums.Thanks very much for your participation!

1. Yes. Look at a map and you see why. It is located in the northeastern part of the country.

2.The manner in which it is used. If I assault you with my firearm then it becomes an assault weapon.

3.not exactly, but it sounds like its loaded with carbs so it won't be on my menu plan.

4.neither, we cook on a campfire on the ground

5.No. We keep them as pets (have several live rattlers, one copperhead and a redtailboa. Gonna get me a ball python next week)

Now that was fun. Got some more? Later:)

1. No. It's on the EAST coast. Minnesota
2. Full Auto. A semi auto that "looks" like a full auto AIN'T an asault weapon.
3. Yes
4. Charcoal
5. No. But I don't like em. We don't have any poisonous ones here so I leave em alone, they do no damage to anything. But I still don't like em!

2.Depends on the person using it.

New York, no, its called a mid Atlantic state.
Its design, as a military weapon with specialized sights, ammo retention and finish, for example.
I most certainly do. Unlike Evelyn, I WOULD eat one!
We use both equally. Especially when the gas runs out.
I wouldnt call it afraid, but I am uneasy with them.

Pass the pasties, please!

LOL! Billy!

This response submitted by jrosbor on 10/20/05 at 10:58 PM. ( )

I am thinkin we have the same taste in food! I guess it depends on who the pastie is on! Joe

ahh,,,,,,,, Joe?

This response submitted by Mr.T on 10/20/05 at 11:34 PM. ( )

There are two kinds of pasties. The kind you are thinking of you would find at strip club. The other is a food item. A hand held meat pie.

2. Fully automatic, designed for war. politically correct term for ignorant liberals against firearms.
3. Yes, part of Janet Jacksons football uniform

1: Should the state of Virginia be classified as a northeastern state?Why or why not?

No it is an southeastern state i.e. Civil War set that standard.

2: What makes a firearm an "assault weapon"?

Any firearm can be an assault weapon, for instantce a cap and ball muzzleloader certianly did its part and has flintlocks. Look at the wars thru history even archery equipment can be assualt weapons.

A weapon is anything used against another human.

Firearm is what we hunters education instructors teach about using for sport shooting and hunting animals.

So yes an AR-15 can be used for deerhunting as can SKS and so forth.

3:Do you know what a pastie is?
Nope I have no idea.

4:Do you use a charcoal or propane grill?
I use wood for cooking.
Sometimes I add charcoal or propane to raise the tempature depending on what I am cooking.
Mostly hardwood oak and hickory, apple, peach and cherry woods too.

5:Are you afraid of snakes?
Only when I step on one I did not see. I have been known to walk on water just like the big MAN upstairs when stepping on a snake along the creek bank.

Originally from Kentucky, grew up in Texas

1) Don't care, let the folks from Virginia make that call
2) When you assualt someone with it
3) A sweet
4) Both, depends on what I am cooking
5) Nope

I guess you could...
