    First they came after the dog owner who lets his dog bark for hours and hours. http://www.unionleader.com/article....rticleId=fb390400-8a85-4998-b078-2b6d8e9c5caf (In this case the female owner was away and the dog was left outside.)

    Next, I hope they move on to the leaf blowing morons, esp the guys who are persistent in doing it for hours.

    One Yom Kippur I considered shooting a guy in my neighborhood with one of my guns. All this when I was supposed to be praying, asking the Lord's forgiveness for sins I've committed to Him. (Even G-d can't forgive sins done to others; we're supposed to ask them for forgiveness.)

    It certainly made praying difficult. Noise pollution. Motorcycles, thudding music that makes the window panes vibrate.

    Can't people be considerate? My dog barks four or five times and I'm all over it.

    I'm with ya on all that.

    Those Harley dorks with the open pipes are the worst right up there with the kids blasting rap in their Hondas (At least have the decency to blast good music like Led Zep or some Sabbath!)

    My neighbor isn't content to leaf-blow his yard. He has to do the street and the adjacent neighbors. It took him FOUR HOURS! I went acroos the street one saturday afternoon and I ripped him a new one so now he just does it once in a while, but every second of that friggin thing is torture to my brain. I have to listen to machines and compressors all day at work and when I get home, THIS?

    When I read the title of this thread I thought it was about Ryan's sex life once he goes to prison.

    When you live in a neighborhood you have to expect some typical neighborhood noise, like dogs barking and leaf blowers. But some people seem to do it at ridiculous hours and let it go on too long. It does come down to consideration of your neighbors, and unfortunately, human nature right now seems to be pretty selfish. What ever happened to the "Golden Rule"?

    If you have a pistol with a holster, wear it open carry. Then glare at him when he's leaf blowing into his third hour and "in the zone."

    Make him release some urine in his pants and come back to planet Earth from planet Blow Torch.

    I like my leaf blower ... I suck them up with it also.
    I have a real anal passion about leafs and their place in the garbage not on the ground.

    For the love of God ... attacking leaf blowers ... well I never. :nono:

    Not attack...just implicitly threaten.

    And it's fine for an hour or so. But hours?

    What's really annoying about the "Harley" guys is that they are all doctors and lawyers these days. It's gotten so cool to own a Harley that it's uncool..

    Whista, call the blower guy up at 3 AM then keep blowing a cops whistle in the phone until he hangs up do this several times, the next night put your phone beside your vacum cleaner, then the next night call him and tell him there's a democrat looking in his windows he'll never get back to sleep after that one.............:p

    I have never raked or blown a leaf in my life, God removes my leaves with his wind, I drink beer and watch them fly away.

    Or he might have a large enough piece of land to not need to rake or blow...

    And there are plenty in the city who need to do both even in the most cluttered neighborhoods.

    Sorry...you NEVER "need" to leaf-blow. There are rakes and brooms still available at Wallmart.

    No argument from me on that, makes for a nice punishment or a good outdoor activity to keep kids busy :D

    Personally hate them, then again I hate most loud machines overall.
