    RIFLE RANGE!  I found out over the years that I shot better when I went out and got drunk the night before Qualification Day. Muscles were more relaxed.

    Thanks @Subdeacon Joe for sharing.
    Interesting backstory.



    Hayden Bailey, also known as "The Legless Shed Hunter" and "The Limb Loss Boss", is a working class bowhunter who has a podcast called Working Class Bowhunter. Bailey is from Sparland, Illinois and was previously an industrial HVAC repair specialist when he was involved in a car accident that resulted in the loss of both legs above the knees. He also suffered internal injuries and spent several weeks in a coma. 
    Limb Loss Boss is also the name of a TikTok personality with 1.9 million followers and 49.8 million likes. The character is known for sharing jokes and motivational content.


    Thanks.   I ran across his stuff on YouTube, the one of him changing legs for the school conference,  and found his attitude inspiring and humorous. Thought it might be appreciated here.

  4. Reading the news reminds me of my favorite HL Mencken quote (circa 1925):

    “Here, more than anywhere else that I know of or have heard of, the daily panorama of human existence, of private and communal folly – the unending procession of governmental extortions and chicaneries, of commercial brigandages and throat-slittings, of theological buffooneries, or aesthetic ribaldries, of legal swindles and harlotries, of miscellaneous rogueries, villainies, imbecilities, grotesqueries, and extravagances – is so inordinately gross and preposterous, so perfectly brought up to the highest conceivable amperage, so steadily enriched with an almost fabulous daring and originality, that only the man who was born with a petrified diaphragm can fail to laugh himself to sleep every night, and to awake every morning with all the eager, unflagging expectation of a Sunday-school superintendent touring the Paris peep-shows.”

  5. Santa Rosa Police Department <alerts@civicready.com>


    Suspect stole an Ambulance


    On 5/1/24, at approximately 7:53 PM, an employee from the Russian River Pub, located at 725 4th Street, called 911 and reported there was a subject at the business that appeared to be in an altered state.  Santa Rosa Police Officers, along with in Response (mental health services) responded to the call. 

    The subject, later identified as 36-year-old Sonoma resident Jorge Sanchez Rodriguez, told the Officers that he was having an anxiety attack and asked to go to a local hospital.  Officers offered to drive Rodriquez, be he declined and wanted to be transported by ambulance.

    A Sonoma County Fire District ambulance responded to evaluate and take Rodriguez to a local hospital.  An ambulance member was talking with Rodriguez outside of the ambulance, while the other ambulance member was inside preparing to transport Rodriguez to the hospital. 

    Rodriguez started to walk away from the ambulance member, and then suddenly ran to the driver’s side of the ambulance and got into the driver’s seat.  He then drove west on 4th Street with the second ambulance member trapped in the rear of the ambulance. 

    Officers immediately gave chase.  The ambulance turned south onto D Street and then east onto Sonoma Avenue.  Rodriguez continued on Sonoma Avenue and then turned north on Farmers Lane.  As the ambulance approached 4th Street, an Officer was able to deploy a set of spike strips.  (Spike strips puncture the tire with hollow tubes which causes the tire to rapidly deflate).  The Officer was successful in deflating two of the tires on the driver’s side of the ambulance, but Rodriguez continued to drive the ambulance.   

    Rodriguez continued to on Sonoma Highway and turned south on Mission Blvd and then west on Montgomery Drive.  Officers were able to set two additional sets of spike strips along Montgomery Drive.  The spike strips were successful, and all of the ambulance tires were deflated. 

    Rodriguez continued on Montgomery Drive and ultimately stopped at Memorial Hospital.  Rodriguez immediately exited the ambulance and laid face down on the ground with his hands out.  Rodriguez was taken into custody without the use of any force. 

    The ambulance member was safe and uninjured. 

    Rodriguez was placed in the back seat of a patrol car for transportation to the jail.  Rodriguez then began hitting his head against the security screen and kicking at the window.  Rodriguez was removed from the vehicle and ultimately placed on a gurney.

    Rodriguez was ultimately booked at the Sonoma County Main Adult Detention Center for the following offenses:
    10851 CVC – Vehicle theft (felony)
    2800.2 CVC – Reckless evading (felony)
    207 PC -Kidnapping (felony)
    69 PC – Resisting an executive Officer (felony)
    11550 (a) HS – Under the influence of a controlled substance (misdemeanor)

    The Santa Rosa Police Department in committed to making Santa Rosa a safe place to live, work and play. 

    Media inquiries may be direct to Sergeant T. White at twhite@srcity.org or the on-duty sergeant at 707-543-3625. SRPD Case #24-5192.

  6. The stripes on the pants were for NCOs and officers.


    Sergeants had, if I recall,  a 1 1/2" stripe, corporals a 1" stripe.


    Officers had 1/2" or 1/4" stripes, I don't remember which.


    The only green jackets, so far as I know,  were 1st US Sharpshooters.  Medics/hospital stewards wore a green sash, or had a wide green stripe on each sleeve and possibly a green collar.  I don't know how accurate the reproduction is

    Who said anything about tearing up the Constitution? I sure didn’t. 
    Nor did I say I want the government involved. 

    So, you don’t like what I have to say so I should leave the country? 
    Get off your high horse Joe. I have a freedom of speech too. 


    Nope.  Not what I said.  I just suggested that since you seem to be willing to jettison the Constitution and the law and replace them with vengeance and ventetta , that you might be more comfortable in those places. 

    And I didn't say that you couldn't say what you said.  But, again, since you seem to want to set aside law and the Constitution and replace them with blood feud, vengeance, vendetta, that just possibly other systems might suit your temperament better.  Until YOU responded I hadn't noticed who had mentioned those instruments of torture.  Maybe you could find work with the imams.  



     On a purely EMOTIONAL level, I see where you are coming from, but emotion is a dangerous master.  Emotion leads to no law, no protections, only the rule of claw and fang.  

  8. At first glance this seems weird, and to my taste it's way under seasoned.  But if you look at some of the "traditional" pasta sauces it's not that far off.  Think about the ingredients in catsup.  Yes, sweeter, and fewer seasonings, but with some tweaking it's a passable base.

    I’d be happy to operate those devices. Especially on the posers, instigators and useful idiots. 



    No, no....when someone doesn't like what you are doing.    You seem to want to tear up the Constitution.

    As I said, if you want to descend to those levels maybe you would feel more at home in Yemen, Iran, or N. Korea. 


    Myself, I want every impediment to the power of the State possible.

    Peaceful protests -- sure, even if they are a little loud and obnoxious. Part and parcel of democracy. 'Occupation', intimidation, threats, property damage? Nope.



    I might not like the message, but they have the right to express it...as long as their exercise of their civil rights does not infringe on the civil rights of others.  Including impeding their coming and going on their normal, legal business.  


    As to the suggestions of racks, thumbscrews, iron maiden, etc. I refuse to be lowered to the level of mohammedean "justice" and say to whoever suggested it, you first.  If you want to tear up the Constitution and its protections maybe Yemen, Iran, or N. Korea would be more to your taste.


    I hear people whine about "criminals have more rights than honest citizens" when an obscure clause in the law is used to overturn or prevent a conviction.  I might not agree, but, by Vulcan's left nut, I want those protections from the terrible power of the State in place if I'm ever arrested.  I want every stumbling block, impediment, and obstacle to shield me from that power.

  11. This is the translation site I use most often.  It usually gives the translation from three different services and has a back translation feature.  https://imtranslator.net/compare/english/to-russian/translation/

    When the Instagram translator doesn't do the job I cut and paste into that.  There are still some quirks, but it works most of the time.

    You might need to find a new translation program. This is what mine says.


    kefir 250 g
     * egg 1 pc
     * salt 1 tsp
     * vegetable oil 2 tbsp
     * flour 300 g
     * gov minced meat 500 g
     * bow 2 pcs
     *salt to taste
     * black, red pepper
     * water 100 ml
     *greens optional


    The only thing that's confusing about mine is I need two pieces of bow. Yours says that's an onion.




    The translation I posted was from the Instagram "See translation" feature.  If I have problems that I can't resolve by watching the video a few times I have a different site that I like.


    I just posted the translation to show how interesting they could be.

  13. The Wallace Line


    The Wallace and Weber Lines

    The Wallace and Weber lines are imaginary dividers used to mark the difference between species found in Australia and Papua New Guinea and Southeast Asia. This is especially apparent when considering the difference in mammals between the two regions. South and east of the line marsupials and monotremes are found, unlike the placental mammals found north and west of it.

  14. Here is an example.  Mind now, this goes along with a video.  It's for making a meat filled hand pie.

    По этому рецепту готовит моя Мама и теперь точно буду готовить и я, рецепт очень простой, никакого кипятка, уксуса и соды. Тесто замешиваем тугое и пока оно отдыхает пол часа, можете его пару раз промять.

    * кефир 250 г
    * яйцо 1 шт
    * соль 1 ч.л
    * раст.масло 2 ст.л
    * мука 300 г
    * фарш гов 500 г
    * лук 2 шт
    * соль по вкусу
    * черный, красный перец
    * вода 100 мл
    * зелень по желанию

    And the translation is:
    My Mom cooks this recipe and now I will definitely cook too, the recipe is very simple, no boiling, vinegar and baking soda. Mix the tight dough and while it rests for half an hour, you can rinse it a couple of times.

    * kefir 250 g
    * egg 1 pc
    *1 hr of salt l
    * growth. oil 2 pcs. l
    * 300 years of torture
    * minced beef 500 g
    * onion 2 pcs
    *salt to taste
    * black red pepper
    * water 100 ml
    * greenery optional


  15. These events are not "pro-Palestinian." They are media events staged by supporters of Muslim Einsatzgruppen dedicated to carrying out the National Socialist Final Solution.
    The Hamas death squads , as usual, broke the existing cease fire, attacked Israel, retreated behind their human shields in Gaza, killing many citizens themselves for propaganda photos as well as knowing that IDF retaliation would inflict additional civilian casualties among the women and infants that Hamas loves to hide behind, and then scream for a cease fire because big bad Israel is picking on them for no reason. All those mohammedean Einsatzgruppen want is a chance to rearm.

    Haven't used Cruise control since 1975. Driving a stretch on US 80, going to Starve Rock, cruise on set at 65 mph. Was coming up to exit a mile away and tried turning cruise off, tapped brake, nothing. Lucky no heavy traffic, pushed brake as hard as possible and pulling emergency brake slowly. Finally came to a stop, brakes smoking and turned off engine. We waited about 15 or so minutes and turned engine on. Lucky everything worked, tested brakes, and slowly brought up to speed limit testing brakes, etc. First exit turned around for home and nearest Ford Dealer. They found nothing wrong, nor an explanation why it, or what could have caused it. I never used Cruise again.



    I had a similar experience driving my dad's motorhome in about 1978.  It had an aftermarket add on speed control.  I was on Highway 76 coming home to Vista from Anza Borrego State Park.  I'd set it and it wouldn't disengage.  There wasn't much (any) traffic, so I was able to put it in neutral, bring it to the side of the road, and shut it off.
