    Breyer Stable Cleaning Set


    I am from Kentucky.. and I take this as a joke.. Do you realize how much a derby horse is worth? 250k for a thorough breed is cheap.

    This article made me think of this George Carlin bit. "Whenever I see someone w/ a baby on board sticker or sign you know what I do? I run them into a power pole, shake that kid up a little ..give him a sense of reality".

    Faith in the future is no longer a big brass band of hope, but more like a trickling whimper draining down the sides of a filthy alley.

    Only if he owns it. I can assure there are plenty of people shoveling horse sh it that don`t own the horse. Perhaps you should try not being a dipshi t your self before calling someone an idiot over a child`s toy

    The 10th toy should be kid nurse set.

    Also, I fear the day they are going to actually sell office cubicle (complete with working computers ) for kids.

    ascarybear, it isn`t that he thinks you are an idiot because of your opinion of manual laborers, but because you assume that a manual laborer can`t make a good living. There are quite a few people who make more than a living off of horses in Kentucky.

    Most of the people who shovel horse crap down here that aren`t rich, are people who are cleaning up after a pet, as opposed to doing it as a full time job.

    For example, a derby winner was sold to a sultan.. "Ahmed spent $900,000 to buy War Emblem just three weeks before the Kentucky Derby, after the horse won the Illinois Derby. The colt’s wire-to-wire victory at Churchill Downs in May made Ahmed the first Arab to win America’s most famous thoroughbred race."

    Ahmed died recently though.

    Uhm... have those guys TRIED to be a tattoo artist? Getting an apprenticeship is very very difficult! And really, at $150/hour on the LOW end, artists get a good paycheque.

    wow nice to know that we tattoo artists (in my case apprentice) are not actually craftsman but merely prison bound meth heads. dissapointingly stereotypical from a site i usually enjoy.

    you know there is actually a shop out in L.A. where you pay so much a month to take a tattoo class you start off doing pig skins and once you get more than decent at it they transfer you to a local shop to take on an apprenticeship and if your REALLY good you might just find yourself a pretty awesome career

    We learnt about this sort of thing in Sociology. We took a trip to a Toys R` Us and analyzed the toys.
    Ever notice that toys meant for girls are meant for indoor use and consist of stereotypical girl things like "everyone`s friendly, I love to cook and clean and take care of babies and I like pink!"
    Meanwhile, toys meant for boys are meant for outdoor use and are stereotypical as well, with things like, "Good guy, bad guy, we fight wars, we are stronger and better!"
    Sad.
