  1. He may be out of practice lately, but I bet those metal things handing below his ribbons mean he's a rifleman! (Ain't they all?!) I have only one thing to say about those images at the top of the thread...(probably get me in trouble with someone, but...) : BAM! :o:)

     

     

    LOL...

     

    They tended to call the male Marines "HAMs"

  2. Subdeacon Joe, I am a gentleman outwardly.

    You as a red blooded American man should not have to be told how to look at a woman and appreciate her without expressing your inner thoughts which we ALL have. ;)

    =================

    And I would not use the term rack. As a navy person, a rack is a place to sleep when you get time. ;^)

     

     

     

     

    Well, lets just say that Secretary of Defense Mattis has quite a rack

  3. Y'know, Joe, that first picture gives a whole new meaning to "Women marching for our rights!" ;)

     

     

    Yep. I think the thread I found it on talked of empowering women.

     

    To those who pointed out that the photos are of different Marines, yes, I knew that. But the second one, I think, is pretty easy on the eye too. Maybe it's just armed women.

     

    Several things I see in the photos.

    Two different Sargent.

    Check the stripes and ribbon layout.

    Not sure of rate.

    First photo has more than one woman in it.

    Three others..maybe more.

     

     

    You let me down, CH. You could have said "Just look at their racks."

  4. Somehow I believe this is a "joke site".

     

     

     

     

    It IS???

    I never would have guessed it!!!

     

    The unfortunate thing is that it sounds a lot like the CA Legislature. Especially "Clementine says that guns may require an outside force to make them shoot but more likely, he says, it’s because the guns didn’t sense any fear. “Guns feed on fear and panic,” he says, “and cardboard generally doesn’t exhibit any of those emotions.”

     

    I'm sure that de Leon would be surprised that cardboard doesn't exhibit emotion.

     

  5. WOW! What a revelation! (not to be confused with the Western Auto brand)

    The results, however, took an odd turn says Bob Clementine, the lead researcher and grant manager of the project. “We found very similar results with the most evil looking gun as we did with the funny looking dummy guns. A gun, regardless of it’s type, appears, by all scientific and measurable standards, to be inanimate and doesn’t seem to be capable of evil or good.” He says the only action recorded in the room were the oxidation of metal and dust gathering, both of which pose no threat to human lives and is “incredibly boring to watch.”

    The research group has come up with several likely possibilities as to why the guns didn’t react violently to the cardboard cutouts. Clementine says that guns may require an outside force to make them shoot but more likely, he says, it’s because the guns didn’t sense any fear. “Guns feed on fear and panic,” he says, “and cardboard generally doesn’t exhibit any of those emotions.” He adds that more research, along with more big ticket federally funded grants, will be required to reach any definite conclusion.

     

  6. I was watching some movie one time, and they were giving numbers over the radio.

     

    Fiver and Niner. That kinda defeats the purpose. Niner is so the listener knows you're not saying Five. Calling Five "Fiver" makes the two numbers sound alike again.

     

    That came floating up from memory when I heard Ferb, in episode one, explaining to Walt that "klicks" was the new term for "miles".

     

     

    I learned five as "FI-UV"

     

    And if counting down from 10 to fire off a charge to count, '7 - 6 - - 4 - 3 - 2 -1 - FIRE" Leaving out the "five" so someone didn't hit the switch on hearing the "FI"

  7. Not sure who wrote it but your second "quote" has 4 mis-spellings. If it is the maker of the Maglock they should be more careful. Pisses me off that we even have to consider using such a PIA device on our AR's. Personally I'm just going to re-register my registered AR to avoid such a thing.

     

     

    I wrote my Assemblyman and State Senator before this was passed and explained to them how this makes firearms less safe. Specifically, I pointed out that there is no safe way to unload the firearm if you can't drop out the magazine. One at least had the honesty to say he didn't care.

    This one: ""Disassembly of the firearm action" means the fire control assembly is detached from the action in such a way that the action has been interrupted and will nat fiznction. For example disassembling the action on a two part receiver like that on an AR-15 style firearm would require the rear take dawn pin to be removed the upper receiver lifted upwards and away from the lower receiver using the front divot din as the fulcrum before the magazine may be removed.?"

     

    That would be my fault. I did a copy and paste from the CA DOJ PDF and failed to notice that in copying from page 3, subsection (n) I picked up some formatting artifacts. Follow my link, and read the bottom of page 3.

    California AR owners – ATTENTION!

    The California Department of Justice has confirmed the AR MAGLOCK as a compliant product under the new laws SB 880 and AB 1135. Read section "n" on page 3 of the below link:
    https://cdn.firearmspolicy.org/…/bullet-button-proposed-reg…

    Jan. 1 2017 is the first day enforcement of the new laws SB 880 and AB 1135 begins. The bullet button is now banned and your firearm is classified as an assault weapon. You must either register it as an assault weapon or install an AR MAGLOCK, turning it into a fixed magazine firearm.

    AR MAGLOCK is the answer, as with it installed you no longer own what's classified as an assault weapon, therefore no requirement to register!

    AR MAGLOCK is a patented AR-15 fixed magazine solution that allows AR-15 owners to avoid assault weapon registration by staying compliant with the laws. Easy installation that only take 10 minutes. Get yours here >>>

    With a bit of luck Trump will get to nominate, and the Senate will approve one or two justices to the SCOTUS and suits against many CA laws will be heard and the laws overturned.

  10. Many versions:

     

    Phonetic

     

    shorter version

     

     

    Joke version from the 2nd link:

    In 1972, while working in the Research Department of British Telecom (at that time called Post Office Telecommunications), I circulated the following "new phonetic alphabet standard" in a memo as a joke. From time to time since then I have seen several almost identical "joke" alphabets that, I assume, were arrived at independently (or maybe someone kept a copy of my memo). Anyway, here is mine:

    Aesthetic Bdellium Cyst Djellaba Euphemism Feign Gnat Heuristic Ithyphallic

    Jarlsberg Knickers Llama Mnemonic Nuance Oestrogen Pneumonia Quay Rhythm

    Sjambok Tzar Ulema Veldt Wrath Xylophone Yttrium Zloty

     

     

     

  11. Hi Joe,

     

    Alas, there has been no snow in my area. There has been a plethora of rain. I went out Thursday and believe that with the rain since then, I will only be able to get out with Hubby's truck. Our road will be hopelessly rutted. It was really bad Thursday. It isn't due to stop raining until Tuesday!

     

    Regards,

     

    Allie

     

     

    Last I checked, snow level is still fairly high. 6,000 or so.
