The Saudi Religious Police

The Saudi Religious Police have a handy web form for cowards and informers that they provide for the purpose of turning in heretics, free speech adherents and little girls with Barbie dolls. The first box is for your name, the second, a drop down menu, is for your town. The first four are: Mecca, The [Continue]

It looks like the

It looks like the Violence Policy Center (used to be Handgun Control Inc)(run by Mrs. Brady[not Florence Henderson]) has a new website up: banassaultweapons.org. hmm…seems to me that they got banned back in 1994. Ah, I see, they want to make sure that they stay banned. Back in 1994 Congress put a 10 year limit [Continue]

hmmmm….maybe my next case

hmmmm….maybe my next case mod will look like this. or not. UPDATE: Definately not. The next case I build will be Star Wars related. Like this Imperial Star Destroyer PC Case. Or this Millenium Falcon. Drool…..

This is definatley on

This is definatley on my list of things to build: a bowling-ball mortar! I’d figure out how to make legs for it so I wouldn’t have to use an old chair and a board to sight it in. Other than the legs, it sounds easy to build. hmmmmm…..

Speaking of knifes,

Speaking of knifes, I’ve started work on knife number 2. This one is a more traditional lockback, vs the liner lock of the previous knife. I’m going to make jigged bone handles for it. Might dye them red or maybe brown or black. Not sure yet. I have several bone pieces being dyed right now [Continue]

If you know anyone

If you know anyone who’s throwing out an old piano, let me know. I’d like to harvest the ivory keys for use on knife handles. Yeah, I know it’s rather unlikely that a) anyone is throwing out a piano, and b) that said piano would have ivory keys, but you ever know. Thanks!

Did you know that

Did you know that there is a country between France and Spain? Andorra was co-ruled by the head of France and a Bishop in Spain for 700-odd years, till 1993 when they became a parlimentary democracy. 1993!!!!!

Dallas/Fort Worth animal adoption

Dallas/Fort Worth animal adoption links It’s so sad when people don’t take care of their pets. Or abandon them. I would never think of moving to an apartment that would not allow pets. I don’t see how any dog owner would. Anyway, if you are looking for a dog (or cat, if you must) check [Continue]

I liked this after-action

I liked this after-action report from Iraq. I’ve got several Lee-Enfields, even have some Iraqi ammo for them. Think I’ll take a few with me to the range next time. The rest of the report is good, too. We were in an over-watch position after the battle of Al Samawah. I was watching through the [Continue]

Don’t take away my rights Because you can’t control your kid DUMBASS It’s Lack of Parenting NOT Video Games Grand Theft Auto and its three sequels are designed in Britain and have topped the UK and US games charts, selling more than 20 million copies in the past five years. And how many of those [Continue]

Some of y’all have

Some of y’all have pointed out that I shoudn’t have purchased a copy of the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution as they are both available online. But that’s missing the point. It’s very tough to curl up and read my computer screen. Yes, I could print out the text, but usually the formatting [Continue]

Well poop! Andrew Vachss,

Well poop! Andrew Vachss, one of my favorite writers, came out with a new book, Only Child, a YEAR AGO and I just today found out about it! grrrrr…. Anyway, a quick trip over to Amazon.com and it’s headed my way, along with a new electric drill (mine is leaking oil, or some sort of [Continue]

And at what cost?

And at what cost? Did jackbooted storm troopers descend in the night from black helicopters to take away those voicing dissent? Or do the most vile and baseless accusations fly hither and yon, blown ever larger by a terrified and complicit media elite? Did hundreds of thousands of Muslims have their businesses torched, their families [Continue]
