"pretty cool" must not mean what I thought it means

I wonder is there a law against taking a shot at one of those things if it flies over one's house?

For Dumbass @ 11:01 said...

Oh, prolly not any more than taking a shot at someone's kite or hovercraft or hot air balloon.

Continued prayers and get well wishes for a complete recovery!

Thanks for posting KF. I am USM alum and was at the Southern-State game on Saturday. We lost but thought we hung in there with a good MSU team. Think we have a decent shot at bowling this year.

Nice video! 12:37, Are you saying I have the right to shoot at a hot air balloon just because it flies over my property?

It's against federal law to shoot at any kind of aircraft. Manned or not.

It was tragic what that damn tornado did to that campus. I didn't know about the federal law mentioned in the comment above but am going to look it up.

House Divided said...

Southern played a damned good game Saturday/Sunday. Several whacka-doodle plays that worked and good basic defense.

State better step it up against LSU in five days. Southern is much improved and I'm looking forward to a decent record this year with a bowl game possible.

House Divided: The proper nomenclature for The University of Southern Mississippi is Southern Miss. Southern is the nomenclature for the HBCU school in Baton Rogue. Just don't want you to look bad.

Just like a Southern fan, learn a new word, want to sound smart, misapply that word twice, then look like a tool. The name most people use for Southern is "Hardy High."

Heard Southern fans holler at several of us leaving Hburg this weekend. They yelled, "State got lucky!!" Tools with a small man complex.

Sorry 6:35, but for my generation it was and will always be Southern, just like for those before me it will always be Mississippi Southern. I will no more accommodate you than will Ole Miss Alumni accommodate you by abandoning their beloved name. Go lecture somebody else.

Anonymous said...

Sorry you feel that way 8:12. Most of the USM/MSU fans I saw on Saturday had a great experience. No need to be a jackass.

I am a huge USM fan/grad, and I have no problems with people calling us "Southern". I do it myself.

8:12, why do you use the posting of this beautiful video as an opportunity to denigrate one of Mississippi’s three research universities? It makes you look small. I would enjoy seeing a similar video of the University of Mississippi and of Mississippi State University.

ah, "in the day"....USM was referred to as SOUTHERN...this SOUTHERN MISS shit is something new....also....SMTT wasn't heard of "in the day"

9:03, I wasn't a jackass. I love USM. I grew up there and have Reggie Collier's wristbands. I chose to go to State. I had Southern fans hollering at me and I've lived with that underwhelming spirit for years in the burg. I love that campus and commented earlier about the loss of trees. Southern fans need to correct the bs attitude though.

In all honesty, there is more to do in Hattiesburg than in Starkville.

House Divided State/Southern said...

I don't need to be told the proper name for the school. I'm married to an alumna and have been to all their home games for many years, including those where Southern whipped the asses of State and Ole Miss. I suppose you'll tell me the proper name for State is Mississippi State University and I'm expected to use the formal name.

I will continue to use the term 'Southern' as I see fit. While in Michigan or Florida or Arizona, however, if I speak of 'State', they might be confused.

In your attempt to make me 'look bad', you indeed showed yourself to be a fool.

Red Rogue said...

Anon at 6:35; In your (failed) attempt to correct the poster who (correctly) uses the term Southern, were you going to tell us where Baton Rogue (sic) is? Just don't want you to look bad.

It is not against federal law to shoot down a drone (yet), at least not all drones. 18 USC 32(a)(1) states that it is illegal to "willfully...damage[]...any civil aircraft used, operated, or employed in interstate...commerce."

Most drones that people have problems with are just nosey neighbors. They're not engaged in interstate commerce. State laws may apply, and many municipalities have ordinances regarding discharging firearms, but you do own your airspace, within reasonable limits. There are numerous incidents of people shooting these things down. When charged, they are only charged under state and local laws.

Nice video! SMTTT! I enjoyed the atmosphere in Hattiesburg this weekend. I thank the leadership at State for making the game happen. Its good for the State. I hope to see this series continue in the coming years. State is the flagship university in words and deeds. This is an example of why that is. Southern and State fans will agree on this = GO to hell Ole Miss. I am rooting for State the rest of the year.

Anonymous said...

I agree this series should be a regularly scheduled game. I'm a State fan and enjoy this rivalry. It's good for the entire state.

Anonymous said...

I'm late to the conversation here but i believe USM needs to support USM better before howling about future in-state games. I was there....the USM support was disappointing. If this game was as valuable as many USM folks would lead you to believe, then the stadium would be full....it was not. Something about LSU's game keeping too many USM fans away from stadium. Southern gotta Southern I guess. Very sad but not unexpected.

@1:31 - Southern Miss has NEVER beaten Ole Miss in H'burg.

Anonymous said...

Because the Federal Aviation Administration has decided to consider drones "aircraft" (and has fought for that distinction in court) and has not yet created specific rules about their use, shooting at one should be a violation of federal code 18 §32, which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.

Anonymous said...

Perhaps they should be one day. But today shooting at one is not federally prohibited unless they are engaged in interstate commerce. Joe Blow's new hobby of peeking in on the neighbors ain't within the Supreme's construction of the phrase 'interstate commerce.' Take your chances with your own town's laws.

11:01 the seats in the upper east side were reserved for students but they all packed in tight in the lower section so those seats weren't needed.. Way to take a potshot at USM, though.

Anonymous said...

2:09, Whatever. USM is plagued with a bunch of alumni/students who don't give a shit about USM. Been that way forever

Anonymous said...

2:09, Are you defending Southern's attendance problems? It's not defendable. People don't go to their games. Never had and never will. The other commenter didn't take a pot shot, he/she wrote the truth. Don't be so sensitive.

I had season tickets many of the years I lived in the 'burg even though I'm a State grad. Great baseball town. Terrible football town.

Got To The Motel At 2:00 A.M. said...

Ole Miss and State have not often played in Hattiesburg; however, both have suffered the Eagle's claw in Jackson and on their home field with regularity. So, do we really need to split hairs about who got beat and where?

And for the goober at 10:25 who suggests we each own our airspace within reasonable limits, try suggesting that in court. That argument is as hollow as the one claiming people own the water from their dock out to the middle of the lake. Dumbass!

There are tons of places to sleep over and eat in Hattiesburg; however, it is damned near impossible to get back on 49 and exit the city if you are parked on any of thirty side roads (as if anybody could find a place to park). There were probably close to a hundred blue-light-cop-cars stationary on roads after the game and not a damned one of them was assisting in moving traffic or assisting people trying to exit the venue.

Damn there are some insufferable fools on this site. 6:00 giving lectures on property rights is hilarious. Hey, nimrod, property rights go up and down. What do you think gives you rights to obstruct someone's view? Ordinances like the one BS faced in Ridgeland are put in place by cities to keep these rights in check. 6:00 is an idiot savant.

3:00, USM has a small fanbase for several reasons.

1) We play in CUSA in an SEC crazy area
2) Most of our alums are women, who generally don't care much about sports.
3) And recently, our football product has been crap

Even with all that, our average attendance generally is among the best out of the "non-power 5" schools. Do you folks think we should average 80k a game playing MTSU and Rice?

E Dickerson said...

As an SMU grad, someone asked me the difference between the SMU's Ford Stadium and The Rock since both are about the same size. I said that instead of a Hattiesburg water tower visible from the stands, SMU patrons see a gold skyscraper with Merrill Lynch on the side.

Anonymous said...

To all defenders of The Nasty Bunch,

USM has too many Coast Rats and too many performing arts majors/grads to give a turd about USM. LSU is their first and only love.

Even Feel Were There said...

12:12; Nobody mentioned Southern beating Old Myth 'in Hattiesburg'. Fact is, Old Myth will schedule UT Martin and Fresno but will not schedule Southern Miss. It's the 'everything to lose' and 'nothing to gain' mentality of pastor Freeze and his predecessors.

The stands on both sides and the south end zone were filled with Gold shirts. The problem was a lack of maroon. Largest crowd to ever watch a game at this venue. SMTTT.

Anonymous said...

5:52,
House-Divided said he watched the Eagles whip both schools in Hattiesburg.
While Hugh Freeze did earn a degree at Southern, he obviously did not acquire your Napoleon complex.
Good for USM to have a decent crowd. A record crowd in the 30's is a very sad little statistic, though, don't you think? Why trumpet that and bash the school that gave you that gift. Neither State nor Ole Miss has to play you. State chose to and I'm glad. But you people need to grow up and act like you've been there before.

I enjoyed the drone video. It is a most unattractive campus. It seems a gross waste of taxpayer money.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
