  1. In California at a Lucky’s grocery store the power went out. The registers didn’t work. I needed the items in my cart and asked the girl at the counter if I could just pay in cash. She said she had no way to tell what the prices were. She called out for a manager the old fashioned way. She shouted. A manager came over. I asked the manager about paying cash. The manager said the same thing s the girl. I asked if they had a price book. “No!” Was the response. I whipped out my iPhone and said I can look up the prices with this. The girl said “That’s a great idea…how do we add them up?” The manager lady gave the girl the stupidest look then came up with a way to get out of thinking. She said “Sir, we have no way to secure the cash so this won’t work.” I looked at them both and said “You people deserve the jobs you have. You’re both idiots.” and I left.

  3. A coffee recipe for a Civil War military hospital from the “The Hospital Steward’s Manual,” by Joseph Janvier Woodward, published in 1862: “No.1. Coffee for ten men. "Put 9 pints of water into a canteen, saucepan (or other vessel) on the fire; when boiling, add 7 1/2 oz. of coffee; mix them well together with a spoon or piece of wood; leave on the fire a few minutes longer, or until just beginning to boil. "Take it off, and pour in 1 pint of cold water; let the whole remain ten minutes, or a little longer; the dregs will fall to the bottom, and the coffee will be clear. Pour it from one vessel into another, leaving the dregs at the bottom; add 2 teaspoonfuls of sugar to the pint. If milk is to be had, make 2 pints less of coffee, and add that much milk; boiled milk is preferable. "REMARKS. - This receipt, properly carried out, would give 10 pints of coffee, or 1 pint per man.” Source: Woodward, Joseph Janvier, M.D., "The Hospital Steward's Manual," Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott & Co., 1862. Image credit: Detail from "City Point, Cooking, West Point, Virginia," Library of Congress.

  9. Can the responsibility be split? Not if you mean perhaps 1/2 should go to one person and 1/2 to another. If you mean can more than one individual be separately responsible, then yes it can be split. The entire system on movie sets is inherently a point of failure. The entire system is based on the premise that an actor can not be trusted to handle a firearm safely, so someone else (an armorer) must handle it safely for him. We now have a case where the actor is also the producer. Had those two roles been separate people, this would have been a civil insurance claim. Had it been you or I, and we had pointed a firearm at someone else, and not been familiar with the firearm, and killed someone... I'm not seeing this as a civil matter, I see reckless disregard. I see criminal negligence. I see that no sane actor would ever hold any firearm they were not thoroughly familiar with and had not personally verified its condition. Not if they knew they would be criminally liable for any unsafe discharge. Personally. Themselves, Any "armorer" or "insurance" or "system" notwithstanding. He knew or should have known better.

  12. From the era when actors could enunciate, dialogue was more important than sound effects, action wasn't shown in half second close up clips, and sets were lit and not filled with smoke.

  20. In the early 1870's, just after the M1873 Carbines were issued to cavalry companies, several company commanders requested that .45-70-405 rifle ammo be issued instead of the carbine load, presumably to increase the effective range of the carbines. Not sure how this sat with 5' 4", 125 lb. cavalry troopers, but then, again, what the C.O. said went! And anyway, they were allowed three rounds per man per month for target practice, and in the heat of battle, recoil wouldn't have been much noticed anyway.

  22. Red Buttons. I heard him tell this story on himself on some daytime talk show - Mike Douglas, maybe. He was traveling with Anthony Quinn. And they had just arrived in Italy from Germany. Everybody they met knew who Anthony Quinn was. No one had ever heard of Red Buttons. So Quinn talked him up to all the hotel staff, and they was all excited about having that famous actor, Buttino Rojo. And when the bellboy took his luggage up to his room, he decided to live up to all the hype that Quinn had spouted, and give the bellboy a good tip. Gave him 10 lira. Bellboy gives him a dirty look, and as he's leaving the room he's mumbling something nasty in Italian that includes the words Buttino Rojo. He says "we just come from Germany, where we had been for a while. I was used to German money. 10 marks was about $5. That's a good tip. Ten lira, on the other hand, is about a penny and a half."

  26. There were a few other movie adaptations of Jules Verne novels made in the late 50s/early 60s. Mysterious Island, Five Weeks in a Balloon, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, Around the World in Eighty Days. Another good one, though not a Verne book was The Time Machine.

  28. One of the associate judges who helped the Alcalde try the Hounds was William M. Gwin, later the first United States Senator from California, and the hero of one of San Francisco’s favorite dueling stories. In 1855 Gwin met on the field of honor one Joseph McCorckle. The duel was fought on a marsh north of the Presidio, several miles from the Gwin home in Jackson Street. Relays of horses were provided, and a messenger was engaged to carry the news of the duel to Mrs. Gwin. In due time he galloped down Jackson Street, rushed into the house and shouted: “The first fire has been exchanged and no one is hurt!” “Thank God!” cried Mrs. Gwin, and with the other members of her family knelt in prayer. A little later the messenger again dashed into the house, crying: “The second fire has been exchanged and no one is hurt!” “Praised be the Lord!” said Mrs. Gwin. Again the messenger rode down Jackson Street. He knocked at the door, tendered his card, and was ushered into the parlor. When Mrs. Gwin appeared he said: “The third fire has been exchanged and no one is hurt!” “That’s good,” said Mrs. Gwin. On his next appearance the messenger was invited to remain for dinner. He ate heartily, and after some casual conversation about the weather, remarked: “Oh, by the way, the fourth fire has been exchanged and no one is hurt. What do you think of that, Mrs. Gwin?” “I think,” said Mrs. Gwin, “that there has been some mighty poor shooting!”

  30. Thank you. God truly blessed our parish. One of the premier iconographers of our time happens to be a long time friend of our priest, and is a monk in a monastery in Kelseyville. He and one of his brothers from there have been planning and working on this since the founding of this building in 1996 (parish itself dates from 1936, we had outgrown the original building and thanks to the generosity of parishioners over the years had enough property to build a second one on the same lot). On the Flickr Page you can find their photo journal of the work.

  31. Thanks everyone! I’m going to try Mark’s first, after reading what’s been said I don’t want a round that’s going to hurt me almost as much as the target. BTW, the reason I was asking this question is because of an email that I got from Land Run. Their long range side match is at a distance of 300 meters, which is about 328 yards. Hell, I don’t know if I can even see a target with iron sights at that distance. @La Sombra, @Sedalia Dave, @Crazy Gun Barney, SASS #2428, @Cholla, @Texas Red, @C N Dubble SASS#38003, @The Rainmaker, SASS #11631, @Bailey Creek,5759

  32. Lee 405HB is the way to go. I have only found one company that sells them, Montana Precision. I would steer you away, the casting is very poor. Cast your own, its pretty easy, and then pan lube the bullets. Don't size them. If you haven't already check out Pat Wolfe's the 45-70 book. Everything you wanted to know and more.

  33. Idiot never replaced the brake pads. Eventually they wore down to the metal backing plate. That then wore down the rotor surface till one side ceased to exist. The pattern you see are the cooling fins between the two braking surfaces. Did some research and there were too many different examples for this to be a one off or shop created.

  35. Hannah wasn't on the set at the time of the incident. It was assistant director Dave Halls who took the pistol off the cart and declared "Cold Gun!" without even bothering to check it who then handed it to Baldwin. As much as I hate El Douche he only shares half of the blame.
