dias & lightning link, oh my!

ATF, that beacon of bureaucratic consistency, has reversed itself: It certainly appears that now DIAS and Lightning Links are legal to build, as long as you don’t install it in your AR15. Since they do not make a functioning machinegun until they are installed. Interesting…

why auto bailout is bad pt1

Maybe if they made stuff like this available over there they would not be needing a bailout! The 65 mpg Ford the U.S. Can’t Have: “If ever there was a car made for the times, this would seem to be it: a sporty subcompact that seats five, offers a navigation system, and gets a whopping [Continue]

edumacatin’ your chillins

Educating your children: “When I asked for blog topics, the most frequent request had to do with homeschooling. It is a huge topic. Over the next several weeks I will attempt to write about the various aspects of the subject, documenting our experience, and the experiences of those I met in our homeschooling travels. At [Continue]

new trek movie!

Replace “Mr. Sulu” with “Kif” in the second panel, and the last two panels sound exactly like something Zap Brannigan would say. He’s the Kirk-based starship captain in love with Leela on Futurama. Also funny, but very unrelated, dude trys to pay his overdue bill with a spider drawing.

ban proof gun?

.308 Exile airgun A little pricey, but not too pricey. And it uses easy to find (now anyway) .30 Carbine bullets. And if you want something with a little more oomph, it’s big brother is available in .458 and uses 45/70 bullets. hmmm You know, they’re not any more expensive than say a Remington 700. [Continue]

damn unions

I’m trying to figure out how to run a lathe and a mill. I tend to learn better when someone shows me how to do something, just reading a book tends to not be that great for me, although it does help. TCJC no longer has a program in machining, nor does any other school [Continue]

crotch muppet

So tonight I saw the Last Comic Standing finalists perform at the Bass Hall. Damn they were funny. Iliza Shlesinger Marcus Jeff Dye Jim Tavare Louis Ramey Were the comedians there. Iliza won, so she was the last comic to perform tonight. Louis was first up. Damn he was funny. He also did the MCing [Continue]

question 59

Question 59 of a 63-item questionnaire given to Obama administration job applicants: “Do you or any members of your immediate family own a gun? If so, provide complete ownership and registration information. Has the registration ever lapsed? Please also describe how and by whom it is used and whether it has been the cause of [Continue]

national ammo day

Don’t forget that this is National Ammo Week, and that tomorrow, November 19th, is National Ammo Day. I ordered 21 pounds of powder, 15,000 primers, 1,000 bullets, and some other stuff from Wideners. Dunno if it’ll all arrive or not, they appear to be frikin’ swamped. Also sometime this week, and I’m not sure from [Continue]

quantum of bad assness

Saw Quantum of Solace Saturday night. Awesome! I really like the new James Bond. He, and the series, and more realistic, more gritty, less dumbass and much much less stupid ass gadgets. QoS starts five or maybe 15 minutes after the end of he last movie, Casino Royale, so if you haven’t seen it, you [Continue]

new cousin!

This is my newest cousin, little Nash Forrest Conn He was named that so that his initials would be NFC (yup, the National Football Conference). You can’t tell from the pictures, but he has cataracts on his eyes, I assume like Glenda’s. So they took him to a pediatric eye doctor and he was not [Continue]

flying car!

!!! The flying car: “To Timbuktu by flying car: it sounds the most unlikely journey on earth; a sci-fi voyage from the pages of Jules Verne. But this is no fantasy. The car really flies. And the journey will become reality early in the new year when two explorers set off from London in a [Continue]
