  1. I was going to post on this topic so thanks for raising it.  I like mashed potatoes not smashed potatoes.  Peel is garbarge.  If I wanted to eat garbage I would stay home.  I HATE it when I go to a restaurant and they serve me garbage.

  2. First he bought Twitter to restore freedom of speech.  Yesterday he visited the southern boundary and posted a video of himself shooting "his" .50 BMG.  Gathered over 66 million views in less than 24 hours.  Now that he supports the 2nd Amendment as well as the 1st the Left reviles him.

    They look like they want to kill you! Not even a slight smile on any of em. Maybe they just weren't having fun that day!


    That is because they just found out as a result of the pandemic (Spanish Flu) the price of ammo had gone from 15 cents to 25 cents per box.

    Never heard of it :huh:

    Really?  Been around for decades.  Sort of the Consumer Reports for firearms.

    Pretty good myrmecologist as well.  :)


    Just saw THEM the other night.  Great cast.  Aside from Gwenn it had James Arness, James Whitmore, Fess Parker, Richard Deacon, Leonard Nimoy, Dub Taylor and a host of other character actors from that time period.  Clint Eastwood even had an uncredited role as a fighter pilot near the end of the movie.

  6. Have not seen Remington caps for over two years.  Surprised to see them at Cabellas this morning.  Price?  Hold your breath.  $13.99!

  7. When I was a kid an old family friend that was in his 90's kept telling me the greatest pitch of all time was the Christy Mathewson Fadeaway.  Years later I was watching an old baseball movie biography of someone and they mentioned the Christy Mathewson Fadeaway.


    I found this little squib on it -


    For a time, Mathewson’s fadeaway was the most well-known pitch in baseball. Its seemingly gravity-defying bends dazzled players and fans alike. Outfielder Red Murray was the hurler’s teammate for seven seasons with the Giants and had a bird’s eye view of the twirler’s magical ways. In 1934, nearly 20 years after they last played together, he recalled to The Brooklyn Daily Eaglewhat he knew about Matty and his screwball:

    “Christy Mathewson was a teammate of mind for many years on the Giants. He perfected and was the only man ever to master the fadeaway ball. This ball was a fast curve that arched out on a left=handed batter and in on a right-handed batter. It was not used much by him, only in difficult places, as it was very hard to pitch and was hard on the wrist.”

    Europe wants to do away with the500€ note because it’s too easy y to smuggle a lot of currency that way. Drug smugglers pay about a 50€premium for 500s.

    The U.S. did away with the $500 bill for this reason years ago.  Now some in D.C. are talking about getting rid of the $100.  Of course the ultimate goal is to get rid of cash altogether and go digital.
