  1. There are some vivid accounts of the UDTs in Ian Toll’s Pacific war trilogy. https://www.amazon.com/Books-Pacific-War-Trilogy/s?rh=n%3A283155%2Cp_lbr_books_series_browse-bin%3AThe+Pacific+War+Trilogy
  2. Arte Johnson: “Do you believe in the hereafter?” Ruth: “Why, yes.” Arte: “Then you know what I’m here after.” Which is followed by a savage beating with her purse. Dang, there was some great writing and performing on that show.
  3. When a woman says “you decide”, and you make a decision, it is often followed by, “are you sure?”
  4. “We’re the phone company, we don’t have to care.”
  5. Looks like a certain congresswoman from New York…
  6. There’s some cool stuff in there, but the post is from 2009.
  7. That’s not beer. It’s a child water bottle. Seriously.
  8. Here's mine. Re-arsenaled at Augusta, GA in 1953. SWEET shooter.
  9. AA hull Claybusters pink wad Win 209 primer 1 oz #8 shot #31 Mec bushing - approx 38 gr 3f real BP Plenty of power for knockdowns at CAS distances. I settled on this load because it’s economical and easier on my shoulder. No need or desire to beat myself up. There’s still plenty of flame and boom. The main objective with shot shells is producing a well-distributed pattern. Some folks use too much powder which produces a pattern that looks like a donut. Be sure you pattern yours. Your shells look great. Love the flame! From a few years back:
  10. “Who’s that?” ”Must be a king or something.” ”How do you know?” ”He hasn’t got s**t all over him.”
  11. “…Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a color TV Dialing For Dollars is trying to find me I wait for delivery each day until 3:00 Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a color TV..” —Janis Joplin Some of you of a certain age might remember that from the Mercedes Benz song.
  12. Yup, they were paid off. My parents helped with what they could with short term loans for tuition, which was about $1,300/yr. at University of Kansas. I worked year round for everything else. To this day I don’t understand why 12 hours/semester is considered full time. In my day, that was the threshold between part time and full time students. The average student load was 16 hours. No wonder it takes so long to graduate. The outrageous cost of college now is a direct result of easy loans backed by the govt. There’s been no reason for colleges to reign in the cost.
  13. Thought this thread might be about this PBJ.
  14. Unless and until the OP gets back to us, continuing this thread is sort of pointless.
  15. Watching the lower gear swivel, I can't help thinking the whole thing looks like one of those hula dancer gag gifts.
  16. Ummm...no. So many things to criticize, so little time. But watching him struggle to get up and then waddle downrange was the stand-out moment. I'd like to see how he does in the rain.
  17. No need for it IMO. For searching, I use Google and type “sassnet”, followed by the topic you’re looking for. Takes ya right there.
