  1. The hall has a long, well-established history of admitting flawed people, cheaters, and even downright unsavory characters. There is a murderer and a KKK member in there! Given that precedent, and his on-field performance, there is no way he should remain banned.
  2. Yeah...that was an 18th century construct. My question was about 19th century.
  3. Yeah...that's pretty much exactly what I said about modern usage. My question was about 19th century usage.
  4. I'm currently reading "A Short History of the Confederate States of America" by Jefferson Davis himself. It was originally copyrighted in 1890 by Davis, but my copy is a 2004 reprint. In fact, I bought it when I was traveling to Mississippi and took a few hours to visit Davis' estate. My question pertains to punctuation in the 19th century, specifically, the semicolon. Davis uses it exactly as we do today; however, there is always a space immediately before and after the semicolon. In modern usage, there is only a space after, but not before. This does not occur with commas, periods, or any other punctuation. It only occurs with semicolons. So is this a function of having a reprint? Or was it standard usage in the 19th century to add the extra space before the semicolon?
  5. Please report to mental health for a full evaluation immediately.
  6. I did not know. What size exactly? .560? I do cast bullets so a mould would be easy to come by.
  7. I just worked a trade for one of these unique Civil War carbines. It shoots a very odd cartridge, and I discovered that Dixie Gun Works sells the brass ($8.50 EACH!!!!!). I can cast bullets, so all I need is the right mould. My only problem is, how in the world does a guy get the bullet into the brass? If you've ever seen one of these, to say it's weird is a vast understatement. I can't find any dies for it, and for the life of me I don't know how dies could even work. So how do I do it? Here is a link so you can see the weird brass: https://www.dixiegunworks.com/index/page/product/product_id/2534/category_id/338/product_name/KA1201+Burnside+Brass+Case Here is an interesting video about them; he explains the weird brass:
  8. Here in the real world, the idea of mining asteroids is moving forward with vigor. Last year or so, you may recall Space X was able to land a rocket on an asteroid, then take off and land on earth safely. That mission was R&D for future asteroid mining operations.
  9. Since I don't play the lottery, I'd say I got the better deal!!!!
  10. You have WAAAAY more confidence in both me and computers for that sentence to make any realistic sense!
  11. I checked. $19.95 I'll wait for my friend to bore scope it before I ruin it.
  12. There is a PIN associated with the card. So you would have to have my card and know my PIN to make it work. We are also signing documents this way, too. Anyone can forge a signature, but you need my card and PIN to forge a digital one.
  13. The modern CAC (Common Access Card) has my rank on it. They also have a computer chip which we use to unlock / use DoD-owned computers. So I literally cannot do anything on the computer without my ID card. The certificates associated with the computer chip are tied to my rank, so yes, every time I get promoted I need a new card. That's a problem I'm willing to put up with.
