I've posted pictures of about $15,000 worth of guns over the years. Not video game ones.
I'll say it again:
I wish Mitch still posted here, he probably knows more about guns than anyone else here ever has, and he didn't spend time making fucktarded arguments about them, because he knew what he was talking about.
Uh, less accuracy, yes, frequently, and in theory, but there are semiautos which have actually bested bolt action rifles in competition. For instance, modern M14s could walk circles around an Enfield rifle. Certainly, "the" most accurate rifles are often bolt action, but on a comparative basis this isn't always true.
As for velocity...huh? A .308 round coming out of 20" barrel has virtually the same velocity whether or not it's in a bolt action rifle or a semiautomatic one. You're giving a gas recoil system way too much credit for reducing power.
Look, I know you know a lot about history and what have you, but you're a prime example of someone who thinks you know best purely from what you read and zero practical experience.
You're putting a lot of theory into this that doesn't necessarily work in the real world, and you're making an assumption both people are absolute experts with the respective guns.
And good luck hitting someone a mile away with a Lee Enfield rifle. Theoretically possible, yes, in reality, it isn't happening. Good luck hitting someone a mile away with a much more capable gun unless you're really skilled with it, have a spotter, etc.
You could probably say that about a lot of nice areas in urban places. I went in the early 2000's. I only stayed in the touristy area you described pretty much, aside from going to Virginia a little. The only thing vaguely criminal I saw was a homeless black guy yelling at a security guard of a place who made him stop sleeping there.
The only particularly notable hotel I've ever stayed in was the Watergate, and it's certainly nothing fancy, and only notable for the scandal, but it was nice enough for what it is. Had a nice river view room, and the staff was friendly.
What really made it nice, was the fact it has a Safeway, drugstore, and other shops right below it.
There are many thousands of Dutch people here in central Florida. They have entire subdivisions in some areas. Some live here fulltime, some own part time vacation houses. I guess they see something they like.
Yeah, like I said. It's more complex than that. I wouldn't pick anyone solely based on it. But it can be a point of annoyance and argument.
That being said, like another poster above, I would not willingly date someone with no broader appreciation of culture than Adam Sandler movies and shitty pop music. Nor have I. All the relationships I've been in in recent history, I've been fortunate to have common ground in such things.
You're never going to agree on absolutely everything, but it's nice to have many things in common.
