Not neccesarily true, my gun safe is in my closet, about 3 feet from my bed. Also, my safe is biometric and I can have it open and firearm out in 3 seconds. Plenty of time as my bedroom is on the 2nd floor and I can be armed before an intruder could make their way to my room.

I still find it difficult to believe someone can get paid for gaming...
ALT-F4 from the desktop gives you the power off/log off menu as well.
You might want to check this out at the patent office first, there was a device I remember from the late 70's, early 80's very similar to the "Clapper" called "The Whistle Switch" that did exactly the same thing.
You plugged it in the outlet then plugged whatever appliance (typically a lamp) you wanted to turn on or off. It came with a little whistle that had a squeeze bulb on it that you would produce a high pitched whistle and toggle the device on and off.
You could also reproduce tone whistling with your mouth. Here is a vintage site that has one.

Awesome video, a lot of freaked out people over there! The flash of light and the shock wave had a bunch of folks crapping their pants. Also reports of about 500 being injured.
And save another 8 billion dollars. Need to drop Wednesday as well.
I wonder if any of the guard's they hired are on the list they published.
If they wanted to practice what they preach, why not get only government guards, i.e. law enforcement to protect them?
Whats a matter, doesn't law enforcement protect you at all times?
No, law enforcement is not there to protect you, they are there to clean up the mess and write up the reports.

Same here. Voted in Westerville(Suburb of Columbus) Arrived at 6:00AM at least 100 people already in line. Polls opened a 6:30AM and at that point there had to be at least 300-400 in line. I got though in about 15 minutes and the line was moving very smoothly. Glad I didn't show up any later!
