    The irony is that nunchucku are banned and guns are not, while historically in Japan weapons were banned for non-samurai, so they turned to nunchucku, which is a based off of a threshing flail farmer's would use.

    Why was a heart flying around if it was not needed? Also, why wasn't it needed?

    Roger Stone...the evil love child of Silas the Monk and the Ghost of Jacob Marley. Let's hope he meets the same fate. A true POS, if ever there was one.

    I wouldn't call your show premiere. I would call it immature and disrespectful, but not premiere. Selling human hearts is almost the same as slavery, but potentially and likely worse, because slaves were not killed, but in order to harvest organs you have to kill your kidnap victim. Organ transplants are also an atheist institution the same way as slavery was.

    I think the ban on nunchucks was motivated by deserate ER docs trying to save faces and testicles.

    I still hate this segment and the Southwest joke doesn't work. They give you two bags checked free and you can take a carry-on free. Atop that you get to pick your seat. So... joke fail.

    ‘Chuks were banned coz young men used to walk down the street flipping them around at lightning speed, and it scared old folks coz ‘twasn’t natural, and they never did such a thing in their day. Everything ever banned was cozza nervous 50+ yr olds.

    Funniest thing about the nunchuk incident: It's not actually a weapon but a training tool. No actual fighter would ever use it in a fight, it would be ridiculously uneffective.

    Roger Stone reminds me of the Weasley Dad's wardrobe. What do you want to bet he knows all the Harry Potter movies too? And I think he carries around a phone in his hand all the time to look cool. For a man his age it looks foolish though. And those silly glasses are something else. He should loan them to Trump. Best buds and all. :( Songs

    Why are so many people in this country currently waiting for a heart transplant if we just leave random hearts on Southwest flights with no intended recipient? Somebody give that heart to someone who needs it.

      Bob Miller ...and to be clear, I would only consider being in favor of nun chucking if said nuns had particularly bad habits.

      Bob Miller What, however, is the status of chucking nuns (out the door, off a bridge, etc.)? Also - I like the typo ‘Nunchunks’, however I am not interested in finding out what nun chunks are...

    You sign on to be entertained, Right. We need millennials to calmly read all of this comment to their parents. Then show the videos of what's mentioned. Watch them take an emotional ride that is long over due... They will... Some may react as if they've experienced mkultra treatment and they'll thank you for this...
    They laughed at a man long ago who said "Put ice cubes in your drink." (What,, it'll dilute my drink) They laughed at a man long ago when he invented the automobile. (Many brands now) They laughed at a man long ago who said "You can run any combustible engine with water vapors. (HHO hydrogen gas on demand works)
    I made a HHO generator for my truck from junk laying around the basement and drove my truck to town. Problem, yes, when I shut the engine off in winter, water freezes. But I did prove that I am not a stupid person...
    Donald J Trump, a well known patriotic Democrat was elected by Patriots to be a Republican President to help dismantle both corrupt treasonous political parties. And to restore Patriotic Christian Values back to our 3 branches of government...
    July 25 2017, President Trump had another rally, Youngstown Ohio.
    (See anyone's video of this rally)
    I noticed the man in the stands behind Donald's right shoulder jumping up and down waving a pink 'Women for Trump' sign and a photo of a van decorated with Trump stickers. He goes by (Vincent Fusca), wearing a black hat, glasses, unshaven, dark jacket with a USA flag handkerchief poking out of the pocket. (He makes many hand signals) To his left is this Man's beautiful wife, wearing Diamonds, a black shirt with a glittery image of Trump and a white ball cap. ((The World knows her as Carolyn Bisset Kennedy))
    Deep down all of us know what has been happening in the USA these past 5 decades...
    The World Is About To Change
    Santa Claus of the United States
    Did you see John F Kennedy Jr acting as Santa Claus at the HEB Thanksgiving Day Parade in Houston on Nov 22 2018?
    55 years after GHWBush assassinated JFK Sr...
    19 years after HRC placed a $1million contract hit on JFK Jr,,, 1988 People's Weekly Sexiest Man Alive...
    (You can view all of this reality here on RU-clip)
    Did you see John F Kennedy Jr acting as Santa Claus at the last Trump rally in Mississippi on Nov 26 2018?
    Carolyn made a great looking Mrs Claus, she and Santa Claus tossed gifts to the crowd...
    Did you see several of the Bush and Clinton Crime Family members receive an envelope with their folders at GHWBush's funeral?
    After all of them read the content, all of their expressions and expectations made a drastic change*...
    The World Is About To Change...
    Get used to the idea...
    DJT/JFK Jr 2020
    Making Things Right
    Get used to seeing it...
    John F Kennedy Jr for President of the USA 2024 & 2028
    Merry Christmas
    Q = Vincent Fusca = JFK JR
    This Man Is Supported By The Largest Patriotic Force The Planet Has Ever Seen...
