Head, Life, and Tumblr: SERVICE DOG PSA So today I tripped. Fell flat on my face, it was awful but ultimately harmlesso My service dog, however is trained to go get an adult if I have a seizureg and he assumed this was a seizure (were training him to do more to care for mea but we didn't learn I had epilepsy until a year after we got hîm) I went after him after I had dusten off my jeans and my egog and I found him trying to get the attention of a very annoyed woman. She was swatting hïm away and telling him to go away, So I feel like I need to make this heads up If a service dog without a person approaches you, it means the person is down and in need of help Don't get scaredg don't get annoyed, follow the dog! If it had been an emergency Situation, I could have vomỉted and choked, I could have hit my head, I could have had So many things happen to me, We're goîng to update his training so if the first person doesn't co- operateg he moves ong but seriously guyso If what's his-face could understand that lassie wanted him to go to the well, you can figure out that a dog in a vest proclaiming it a service dog wants you to follow him Source lumpatronics <p><a href="https://doggos-with-jobs.tumblr.com/post/174995716375/not-a-traditional-post-but-an-important-reminder" class="tumblr_blog">doggos-with-jobs</a>:</p><blockquote><p>Not a traditional post, but an important reminder for everyone when life is busy.

Chill, Dude, and Police: imported post Hey guys im new to the forums, a friend pointed me in this direction. Ok so here is my story. I was out at the local saki eating with the lady, and in walks city pd. I was sitting with my pistol, secured in its holster, on the outside in plain view. He walks right past my table and doesnt say a word. I continue to eat with the lady, and about 20 minutes later we go to leave The officer follows us outside and says hey buddy can i talk to you a minute. I turn around and say "yes sir?" He then reaches and pulls my gun from my holster and says "whats this?" I reply "my firearm, that i legally perchased, i have the reciept in my wallet if you wish to see if." He looks me up and down and asks "why are you carrying it??" i reply for "self protection, and as far as i know NC is an OC state, and there is nothing illegal about it." He proceeded to tell me it is an OC state but there is a law about terrorizing the public. He proceeded to unload my XD and had it back, he told me to get a CCW I was at first highly annoyed at his behavior, but after going down to the police station to get my extra mag back that he forgot to handover,i learned that the teenage brats sitting behind us had called 911 and just told them there was a guy with a gun. So i understand his agression. So what should i do about OC? i really want to OC, and yes i am getting my CCW <p><a href="https://ausefulblogforputtingthingsin.tumblr.com/post/172450204891/libertarirynn-oh-youve-got-to-be-kidding-me" class="tumblr_blog">ausefulblogforputtingthingsin</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="https://libertarirynn.tumblr.com/post/172449796139/oh-youve-got-to-be-kidding-me" class="tumblr_blog">libertarirynn</a>:</p><blockquote><p>Oh you’ve got to be kidding me.</p></blockquote> <p>Can’t you get in trouble for calling 911 for no reason? Because those teenagers should. I guess if they in good faith thought there was an emergency they’d be justified but the dude was just having a meal. Also this person was so chill even though his rights were being violated and he was inconvenienced and basically harassed. </p></blockquote> <p>Seriously. I mean he says he can “understand the aggression” because the officer was called out there but the cop observed him for 20 minutes and saw he was doing nothing but minding his own business. At that point if you want to get upset with someone, how about the kids who wasted your time? Tell them they had no business calling the police and that it’s legal to open carry and the man was doing nothing wrong, don’t harass *him*.</p>

Is that the long shadow of Hitler?</p> <p><b>Brooks:</b> You must be joking! Rogues on the screen were already wearing moustaches when Hitler was still running around in short trousers. A cinema villain essentially needs a moustache so he can twiddle with it gleefully as he cooks up his next nasty plan. So Hitler’s incomplete moustache would never have been enough for that.</p> <p><b>SPIEGEL:</b> Your new comedy “The Producers” is set at the end of the 1950s on Broadway and concerns a Nazi musical that breaks box office records. It shows a dancing and singing Hitler. Isn’t that a bit tasteless?</p> <p><b>Brooks:</b> Of course. But it’s also funny, isn’t it? The film revolves around a Broadway producer who, for financial and technical reasons, wants to produce a flop. After he turns down the chance to adapt Kafka’s “The Metamorphosis,” he comes up with the idea of creating a musical about Hitler, produced by the lousiest director in the city, cast with the worst actors by far -– in the middle of the Jewish metropolis of New York. He’s sure it won’t work. Yet because the audience considers the piece to be a brilliant parody, his worst fears are realized, it’s a hit. “The Producers” therefore deals with the difficulty of having a flop. </p> <p><b>SPIEGEL:</b> Which you of course know well yourself. “The Producers” is based on a musical that you produced that ran successfully on Broadway for five years and also on the film “The Producers” that you shot in 1967. How did the audience react to the film back then?</p> <p><b>Brooks:</b> The Jews were horrified. I received resentful letters of protest, saying things like: “How can you make jokes about Hitler? The man murdered 6 million Jews.“ But “The Producers” doesn’t concern a concentration camp or the Holocaust. </p> <p><b>SPIEGEL:</b> Can you really separate Hitler from the Holocaust?</p> <p><b>Brooks:</b> You have to separate it. For example, Roberto Benigni’s comedy “Life Is Beautiful” really annoyed me. A crazy film that even attempted to find comedy in a concentration camp. It showed the barracks in which Jews were kept like cattle, and it made jokes about it. The philosophy of the film is: people can get over anything. No, they can’t. They can’t get over a concentration camp.</p> <p><b>SPIEGEL:</b> But the film has deeply moved a lot of people.</p> <p><b>Brooks:</b> I always asked myself: Tell me, Roberto, are you nuts? You didn’t lose any relatives in the Holocaust, you’re not even Jewish. You really don’t understand what it’s all about. The Americans were incredibly thrilled to discover from him that it wasn’t all that bad in the concentration camps after all. And that’s why they immediately pressed an Oscar into his hand. </p> <p><b>SPIEGEL:</b> So there are limits to humor?</p> <p><b>Brooks:</b> Definitely. In 1974, I produced the western parody “Blazing Saddles,” in which the word “nigger” was used constantly. But I would never have thought of the idea of showing how a black was lynched. It’s only funny when he escapes getting sent to the gallows. You can laugh at Hitler because you can cut him down to normal size.</p> <p><b>SPIEGEL:</b> Can you also get your revenge on him by using comedy?</p> <p><b>Brooks:</b> Yes, absolutely. Of course it is impossible to take revenge for 6 million murdered Jews. But by using the medium of comedy, we can try to rob Hitler of his posthumous power and myths. In doing so, we should remember that Hitler did have some talents. He was able to fool an entire population into letting him be their leader. However, this role was basically a few numbers too great for him –- but he simply covered over this deficiency.</p> <p><b>SPIEGEL:</b> Was he a good actor?</p> <p><b>Brooks:</b> Yes, as he convinced many millions of Germans. It’s not without good reason that comedies about Hitler often concern actors who should play him. Just think about Charlie Chaplin’s “The Great Dictator” (1940) or Ernst Lubitsch’s “To Be or not To Be” (1942). There’s no doubt about it, Hitler worked in the same branch as we do: he created illusions. </p> <p><b>SPIEGEL:</b> In a documentary film about the downfall of the German battleship the Bismarck, US director James Cameron referred to Hitler as the “greatest pop star of his time.“</p> <p><b>Brooks:</b> There’s something in that. Hitler must have had a magnetic attractive force, like a rock star he used his voice to spellbind umpteen thousands of listeners. So it’s only fitting when comic actors make him the limelight hog of world history. We take away from him the holy seriousness that always surrounded him and protected him like a cordon.</p> <p><br/></p> <p><b>SPIEGEL:</b> You yourself fought against the Nazis in Europe in 1945 and came to Berlin just after the end of the war and stayed there for eight months. Could you still feel much of a Hitler reverence?</p> <p><b>Brooks:</b> Everywhere you went you could sense a great relief that the war was finally over. I myself was shaken by the extent of the destruction. When we were transporting away a few prisoners of war in a train, I discovered an old man who looked like my grandfather. He suddenly leaped out of the carriage. I took my rifle and aimed at him. He called (Brooks says in German): “Don’t shoot, I have to shit”. Most of the Germans who survived the war were just poor simple people. Was National Socialism ever taught in German schools?</p> <p><b>SPIEGEL:</b> Yes, and in great detail.</p> <p><b>Brooks:</b> That is comforting to know. When you come to Germany as a Jew you have an uneasy feeling, but I’ve always felt okay in Berlin. It was there that I saw Brecht and Weill’s “Three Penny Opera” and was totally crazy about this kind of musical theater. </p> <p><br/></p> <p><b>SPIEGEL:</b> Have you seen Oliver Hirschbiegels’s film “Downfall”?</p> <p><b>Brooks:</b> Yes, and I thought it was excellent. It shows us Hitler’s self destruction. While Goebbels was idolizing Hitler as the new Christ, like the salvation in the flesh, he was decaying before our very eyes – and all that was needed to illustrate this was a shot of his trembling hand.  </p> <p><b>SPIEGEL:</b> Don’t you think the film humanizes Hitler too much?</p> <p><b>Brooks:</b> No, it doesn’t arouse the slightest bit of sympathy for Hitler. It shows a man who went mad. Let’s face it; he too started off as a small, innocent baby. His monstrous grimace comes across all the more startling when you can sense the paltry remains of his human nature.</p> <p><b>SPIEGEL:</b> Was Hitler funny? Would you have been able to make him laugh?</p> <p><b>Brooks:</b> I have no delusions of grandeur. Hitler would definitely not have smacked himself on the thigh and cried out (Brooks says in German): “What fantastic fun.“ If he had found something funny you’d probably see at the most a flinch in the corner of his mouth.  </p> <p><b>SPIEGEL:</b> You yourself played Hitler in 1983 in your remake of the film “To Be or not To Be”…</p> <figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="130" data-orig-width="240"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/054ed98db8d99065bb0c2d5edafdf864/tumblr_inline_p5xi81rWN21sp5650_500.gif" data-orig-height="130" data-orig-width="240"/></figure><p><b>Brooks:</b> … and I also gave him my voice in a song in “The Producers”.</p> <p><b>SPIEGEL:</b> How does it feel for a <b>JEW</b> to slip into the skin of his greatest enemy?  </p> <p><b>Brooks:</b> It is an inverted seizure of power.
