    In the mean time none of the Reston side lights at the intersection of VA-7 and the Reston Parkway work.

    I am not going to tell a grown man or woman to do the dishes! In fact, the few seconds it takes its probably worth taking path of least resistance and doing them myselves, however it will cost a food item of my choice.

    Room mates,,, grrrrr,,,, now i am also getting fat.

    Hey, kids. Here’s a word of advice. To your victims, you are pointing a gun at them. Any intenntionally pointed gun which is obviously not a toy is an act of violent aggression. You are creating a “it’s either you or me” situation. If you do this to a well-armed person, you might find yourself either seriously injured or dead. Be very careful about the game you are playing. Remember, play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
