  2. Heck of a deal for someone looking for a RG cart. BTT
  3. My terminology from back in the 70's and 80's; Loose pot = pot Rolled pot = joint Very potent pot = sinsemilla or skunk bud Funny this thread came up. Today while out driving around to garage sales, we saw a guy crossing the street walking a bicycle that was a doppelganger for Tommy Chong as he looked in the movie Up In Smoke. My gal and I looked at each other at the same time and said "Hey look, it's Chong." Then we laughed pretty good about it.
  4. Good, glad we shot it down. One down, one to go.
  5. It's all an experiment. Test the time to recognize the threat and to react to it. The threat wasn't even recognized until it had flown over a 1/3 of the country and wasn't reacted to until it had passed over the ENTIRE country. During WWII, Both the Allies and the Axis experimented with using balloons to deliver a different type of "bomb" on their enemy...invasive and crop destroying insects. They also experimented with bubonic plaque bearing fleas. The Germans actually succeeded in the destruction of potato crops...their own. Seems they tried it out on their own crops but couldn't find any evidence that the insects dropped had any affect...until the next years growing season when many potato crops were failing due to an infestation of the larvae of the very insect dropped the previous year. The Chinese know that they cannot overwhelm the US on it's own ground in one fell swoop. They don't care about starving another country's people, look at what they have done to their own people over time. I'm not saying that this is what the Chinese have in mind but they flew (what I consider) a threat to our national security all the way across the US, from coast to coast. Sounds like a pretty successful experiment to me.
  6. This We should just send up a couple of toll booth balloons. Charge...I dunno...10 cents for passage. I can see the Chinese now...
  7. Thank you for that. One of my favorite songs...
  8. Entire summer? Heck with that, do they rent apartments by the year?
  9. Oh great...chicken cops now. Probably wearing leg spurs to aid in the beat down of the chickens of the lesser coops.
  10. Yep, I really like American Select. Good, clean, fluffy powder for various pistol and shotgun uses. Hope all of the powder that I sold you equated to hits on the right targets!
  11. Sounds more tactical, makes it sound like the meteorologist knows what they are talking about.
  12. Alligators on acid...that would not be good. I know, it's a mushroom shown but think about it...drug plane goes down in the Everglades with psycho-active cargo aboard. First, it was the rednecks out froggin that "seen the plane go down", then...South Florida. Make a good horror movie though. Sharknado, only with gators racing out of the swamps. Heck, I'd go see that.
  13. The Chinese are using every spying device that they can use, everything from centuries old technology to ultra modern. IMO, a balloon probably isn't going to provide much more information than satellites can. I'd be much more concerned with the millions of Chinese spy devices already in place in the US...TikTok. It isn't really the idiotic content of the Tik Tok videos...it's the hidden information...the info hidden in the background of every video. Then, of course, there is the overtly recorded video containing images of military bases/aircraft/personnel/vehicles/tactics/etc, utility infrastructure (water, electric, gas, etc) and all kinds of other information that by itself doesn't look like anything worthwhile. Combine the info from millions and millions of videos...you get the picture. It provides a great overview of everything the Chinese would want to know in the event of military conflict. The premise of collateral damage created by the downing of the balloon doesn't hold water. With all of the weapons (lasers, sonic, pulse, etc) at our disposal, there must be some way of downing it without spraying the countryside with ordinance. The only thing to worry about then is the balloon debris itself. Gee, the government doesn't seem to worry about all of the debris from defunct spacecraft. All of that stuff doesn't burn up on re-entry regardless of what they claim.
  14. In all of the recent "Guests" trying to scam people, either by buying or selling, I thought the below statement necessary. Grey Ghost is a great pard to do business with. I have had several transactions with him as the buyer and me as the seller. Just because he is registered as "Guest", don't think of him as a possible scammer...he's not. I'd buy or sell to him in a heartbeat.
  15. We'd probably find out it was our "top secret" design that the Chinese stole.

  18. Kind of looks like a rodent named Mickey.
  19. Never had groundhog. His cousins aren't so bad if seasoned and cooked right. Kinda tasty and chewy at the same time.
  20. I am far from a Tom Brady fan...way far away. Can't stand him actually. That said, the reference pictured above is a photo shopped picture of Antonio Brown, a classless idiot with no integrity At least Brady had class.
  21. Wow...NOW THAT'S THE COWBOY WAY!!! Way to go Matthew!
