  1. It's an experience. Totality passed through the North Oregon coast a few years back and we were there. Very uncanny as the world literally falls dark like nighttime. It was worth it. Doesn't last long. And you need to be in the actual totality path. Just outside it's only a bit of twilight feel.
  2. Never have used one. I've had a beard since my early 20s. No mustache; I use disposables for neck and upper lip. They last a long time with those limits.
  3. Perhaps it's because what Texans call Bluebonnets are Lupines, and Lupines can come in many colors.
  4. It will be interesting to follow when his trial comes in July. First, the jury won't be composed of people who have a serious animus against Baldwin personally, as many pards here do. They will likely be much more neutral. Second, he'll likely have a couple of high-profile beloved movie personalities testifying that on set the actor has a right to rely on the 'cold gun' assurance, as they have themselves many times in their own illustrious careers. Tom Hanks types-don't mean Hanks personally, but that type of well-liked and trusted star or stars. Third, high authority from the Screen Actors' Guild will say much the same. Fourth, fifth, etc: fill in the blanks (so to speak...).
  5. A detailed article on that specific subject in today's NYTimes: What the ‘Rust’ Shooting Trial Told Us About How Live Rounds Got on Set - The New York Times (nytimes.com) If you can't get to it, should be available from other online sources in a day or two.
  6. That will be up to a different jury. I'd be willing to put up several dollars that he'll be acquitted when it goes to trial. He has pretty good defenses, and just acquired another one with the conviction of the armorer.
  7. I never did it and I don't remember anybody else doing it in court. In depostions I may have heard it a few times. I never did there either-- why remind them? As for'strenuous' objections, yeah, you do hear that a lot. But not nearly as much as, "I'll be brief, your honor"....
  8. His testimony was in the armorer's trial, not Baldwin's, which hasn't happened yet.
  9. She put the live round into the revolver; it ultimately came down to that when all was said and done.
  10. I suppose with airplanes he would have conquered Gaul. Which he did without them.
  11. Three miles of 'light rail" in my city has taken at least that long.
  12. I had it on videotape years ago. It hadn't been forgotten then.... [I didn't play the link; I remembered the episode...]
  13. I have two (actual) Stetson fedoras, one black, one brown, that each cost about $350, marketed (and marked) by Stetson as 100% beaver felt, a claim that I have no reason to doubt. Weather has no effect on them, unlike lesser hats I've owned. [I say 'actual' because the linked article, and other places, seem sometimes to use 'stetson' as generic for cowboy hats, rather than the brand.]
  14. Exalauno Day is March 4th; a pun on the Greek verb 'exalauno' meaning "March forth", recurrently used in Xenophon's "Anabasis of Cyrus", (often translated as The March Upcountry or the March of the Ten Thousand). ' Xenophon's story is quite true, about the long escape of ten thousand Greek mercenaries from the heart of Persia after their leader, a claimant to the Persian throne, was killed. Took place in the generation before Alexandert the Great. I read it a few years back after a respected acquaintance described it as 'the greatest true adventure story ever written'. It qualifies, and it is not a hard read. Roxbury Latin School invented the holiday a century or so ago, and it makes the news now and then....
  15. You get quite a bit of latitude on cross-examination, but there are still limits....
  16. It was total war. Same thing happened at Hanford/Tri-cities Washington.
  17. So it's temporary. You're coming back. This is a local and limited emergency. So you take a handgun, a rifle, and a couple boxes. This is not a SHTF scenario...
  18. Yes. The 'fines' assessed against LaPierre and others are to be repaid to t'he NRA, not the state. That was the jury part of the case. The case is now before the judge on future governance issues. He long ago dismissed the AG's attempts to dismantle the NRA. Probably the only way to get rid of the current board and reorganize the governance will be by the Court. The board will never do it itself.
  19. 'Geometric' basalt pipes are found lots of places; Washington state has loads of them. When thick basaltic lava cools, it contracts. Geometric 'pipes' are produced. Think of similar formations in drying mud. Haven't seen those cubic formations before, though. I would guess a similar process.
  20. Amazing price; they usually cost more. +pistol bras - Search Images (bing.com)
  21. I would call it interesting speculation! We do often think of a lot of 'might-have-beens' in life....
  22. The M3 Grant/Lee gave good service. They shipped a lot of them to Russia, too.
