  1. Does give a whole new meaning to "I'm going to the kitchen to slap up some supper".
  2. I can guarantee one thing, slapping a frozen chicken as hard as you can WILL make your hand feel warmer than the chicken.
  3. This + the drive to the match has already set me on edge, so I ready for battle when I get there.
  4. Funny you ask, Carbon 14 dating was discovered on this day. As far as your question, I have no idea.
  5. The carbide bits are just fine. One problem is that you may be using too high of a speed. That creates a bunch of heat real quick and destroys the bit quickly. Use a lower RPM on the drill. You'll see what I mean.
  6. I would have been able to tell that someone was on my "run down" trailer roof to begin with. I'd have just shot him through the roof, got me a beer and went back to watching Hee Haw on tv.
  7. I have to admit that I have not wanted to shake anyone's hand at the matches or anywhere else. I just tell them that I just got back from Hong Kong and I'm not feeling too good. That hand recoils rather quickly.
  8. Yep, she drives a Camry. That bumper's coming off. Then she can get ME a beer and explain how he got in to begin with.
  9. Okay, give up then. Stick your head in the sand and hope it goes away. There's a similar thread here about the Alamo. They didn't give up against overwhelming odds, they got massacred standing up for them. Eventually Texas won independence from Mexico and became a State. No one in California that stands up to this ludicrous law is going to get massacred but if no one stands against it, it will surely get passed. Your options are give in, break the law or move. Law abiding citizens aren't going to risk breaking the law. Most of the law abiding citizens can't afford to just pick up and move, leaving behind loved ones or jobs or both. Only the people who reside and vote in California can fight or surrender in this fight, but everyone in every State WILL have a dog in this fight sooner or later.
  10. I carried it in a work van. At the time, I didn't own a larger caliber rifle of any kind except a .22. We were working on a house that was then a remote area in the woods. Every morning I drove the van on a dirt path/road through a small ditch that had about 3" of water in it. Most every day, there was a buck about 50 yards to the right of the van just standing at the ditch. One day, I had the brilliant idea that I would go home with some venison that night. I drove slowly up to the ditch, careful not to make too much noise and there he was again. Took careful aim and fired the shot. Not only did I miss but I couldn't hear much for 3 or 4 days after that. Needless to say, it wasn't a spur of the moment thing......just forgot to put in earplugs.
  11. My dad tells a story of being in the Saigon airport when an ARVN dropped the M3 he was carrying. It shot about 1/2 the mag while moving around on the floor. By some miracle, no one was injured. He said it sure woke the place up though.
  12. I poured mine into the real fish tank, they lasted about two minutes until they all eaten by the real fish.
  13. Truth is that if there was a SDQ for EITHER one of the original poster's scenario's, by the end of stage two.....there wouldn't be enough shooters left to continue the match.
  14. Even rednecks know that you have to roll the window down. Did you ever fix the hole?
  15. Florida cheating chimp box https://www.baynews9.com/fl/tampa/ap-online/2020/02/26/woman-accused-of-leaving-her-boyfriend-in-suitcase-to-die
  16. Or fire it from a E-250 through the passenger window from the drivers side....not that I would know.
  17. To + too + two + 2 = eight, ate and 8. This is not to be confused with seven X three equals twenty one. Which (Witch) brings us back to Two X twenty one = 42. Therefore, 42 is the answer.
  18. He did that to see if the Earth was round as he was a Flat Earth Society member. There is no way that you'll see if the Earth is round or not from 2,000' in the air.
  19. All that to see if the Earth was flat. Instead, he found out that the ground is hard.
  20. Thank you for posting. It was a very informative good read. Brave men never knew what hit them. RIP Hunley Crew.
