| Political Talk|| a few questions about the Palestine/Israel situation - gorillacoco on 7/21/14 at 8:02 am|
When did the palestinians move to the gaza strip, in 1949 when israel was created or sometime after?
Were they coerced to move there or was it by free choice that they separated from israel?
Did israel only gain control of gaza during the war with egypt/jordan in the 60's (70's maybe)?

me personally, i used to throw out shite every year. mainly because i would throw a million filets in a gallon bag and then fill it with water. took too damned long to thaw out so i would never cook it. after a year i'd chuck it in the trash. since i started vacuum sealing i almost never throw anythi...

in Louisiana, if you get married, does your spouse immediately own half of all of your assets? or does he/she only own half of what you make (or pay into a mortgage or 401K, for example) after the date of marriage?
i'm being told that #1 is true, but i got divorced several years ago and IIRC #2 w...

Beretta 3901, won't cycle shells properly. I bought almost new from someone who'd won it in a raffle (allegedly). Cleaned entire gun multiple times, put >200 rounds through the gun to try and break it in, per suggestions on various websites. Gun still will not cycle shells properly.

and what sort of equipment do you need? lets say 10 acres just for example.
my guess, without knowing anything, is that you would need to cut down the larger trees, and probably burn them in piles. then i have no idea what to do with the stumps, maybe dig them up (sounds like an enormous amount o...

can you get away with just keeping motion down to a minimum?

and last but not least, what terrain do you hunt and is it public land?
i am a total noob at this, but i generally just lean ...

also, for reference, note your normal hunting situation (public flooded timber, public marsh, rice field lease, etc...)
