  1. The top of the Great Pyramid of Giza, Egypt.
  2. Bingo! Plus the possibility of unfriendly people taking control. A few months ago I got a chuckle over an article about "remote app controlled male chastity devices" being hacked by people using ransomware. The cost of stupidity.
  3. Sonoma Sheriff 4tSpiohhinsiored · Hide and seek is a two player game, at a minimum. Let’s find out why ... Early this morning, the Sheriff’s Office received a complaint of a suspicious vehicle parked on private property in the 2800 block of Piner Rd. A deputy responded and located the vehicle, but not the occupant. The vehicle was parked in a location that made no sense. The deputy saw a hat resting on a nearby piece
  4. We have a request for some custom threads, 1.438 - 80, roughly 1 7/16 - 80. I've used three different methods to calculate the pitch diameter and I'm coming up with a .009" spread. Any machinists out there who can crunch those numbers? Also, I found that for the 3-Wire method for measuring PD the best size wires are .00722 (use 3 .007+ gauge pins) and the constant is 0.01083. Sound right?
  5. Contact the county. I bet that there is a mosquito abatement program that can either deal with it for free or tell you what to use.
  6. I've noticed that my Governor, both my US Senators, my member of the House of Representatives, my member of the CA Assembly and CA State Senate have very short attention spans. None of them could get past the "Swiss Army Knife" line in the Miller v. Bonta decision. The thing is only 94 pages. A short read. And well worth the time to read it. Judge Benitez lays out a very thoughtful and detailed case against ALL "assault weapon" bans.

  8. I always shake my head when a known satire site gets fact checked.
  9. Yeah. Even though you are pretty sure that is where it's going it hits you.
  10. I was thinking along those lines. But that original recipe, VERY nutmeg-forward. A little bit goes a long way.
  11. Found on FB. A beer joint, somewhere in middle Alabama. I pull the truck over and walk inside. It’s getting late. The place is mostly empty except for a few stragglers and an old guy at the bar eating a hamburger in the dark. Overhead the radio is playing Johnny Paycheck’s “Don’t Take Her She’s All I Got.” The server-slash-barkeep this evening is bearded, stoutly built, with hands like Virginia hams. “Something to drink?” says the man behind the wood. “Whatever’s cold.” “Got the big three on tap. Your call.” “Surprise me.” “Ite.” He pulls th
  12. Soba noodles deliveryman in Tokyo, 1935
  13. One of the members of that court pointed out the contortions a few years ago. 9th Circuit Judge Kozinski’s masterful dissenting opinion. http://gunsonthestreets.com/wp/2012/05/silveira-v-lockyer-judge-kozinskis-dissenting-opinion/ In part: “My excellent colleagues have forgotten these bitter lessons of history. The prospect of tyranny may not grab the headlines the way vivid stories of gun crime routinely do. But few saw the Third Reich coming until it was too late. The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those exceptionally rare circumstances where a
  14. I had found this on a defense.gov page a few years ago, the link to which doesn't seem to be working now. Fortunately, I had copied it: D-Day By the Numbers By the end of June 11 (D +5): · 326,547 troops · 54,186 vehicles, and · 104,428 tons of supplies ...had arrived on the beaches. · War planners projected that the first 20 days after the initial assault could potentially require 5,000 tons of gasoline. · Operation Pluto provided more than 1 million gallons of oil to Allied Troops daily. · The estimated 3,489 long tons of soap would be required
  15. When I'm going to play with April in the house I go around and gather up tennis balls from where she has stashed them. I can usually find 6 or 8. I use a cane to just knock them into a cluster on the floor. As I'm getting onto the floor (we play by me using the cane to knock them downthe hall) she counts them. Pokes each one with her nose, then stands looking at them and bobs her head a little as she recounts them. At least we think she is counting them. Nothing else makes sense of that behavior.
  16. I would like to have seen the 1939 Miller decision brought in. That decision brought in the common use test, and also the requirement that a firearm have "some reasonable relationship to the preservation or efficiency of a well regulated militia." And "The signification attributed to the term Militia appears from the debates in the Convention, the history and legislation of Colonies and States, and the writings of approved commentators. These show plainly enough that the Militia comprised all males physically capable of acting in concert for the common defense. 'A bod
  17. Be a heck of a D2 decisionometer though. "If it comes up Washington I win."
