  1. Umm…maybe, kinda, sorta. I remember a time when it took about 2 1/2 hours to broadcast a game. It’s 3+ hours now with the same basic rules. College ball is closer to 4 hours. It’s still only one hour on the clock. One of the big things that’s slowed the game down are instant replay reviews. I’m waiting for the American Bar Association to get involved to adjudicate the proceedings… Football is best “watched” whilst doing something else. If you miss the play, you’ll have multiple replays and a broadcast pair explaining to the nth degree what happened.
  2. Yup, and Whiteman too, as of now. Where they go will probably depend on how many they build. They were going to build a lot more B-2s than the 21 actually built. Whiteman is already set up for Stealth bombers, but I know nothing of their capacity to handle more. I’m sure Pentagon politics will factor in too.
  3. As I recall, many M-60s were dumped into the drink after Desert Storm for artificial reefs.
  4. It will be stationed at Whiteman AFB, about an hour-plus from me. Back in late ‘90s, I got to fly the B-2 full-motion simulator at Whiteman. The plane is so expensive to fly, they use it to certify pilots before they ever take to the air. It was an amazing experience, lasting about 30 minutes which I could put in my logbook.

  6. I have both Tombstone and Wyatt Earp on DVD. Of the two, I watch Tombstone more often. Full disclosure- Tombstone is the one western I can watch anytime with my wife as she loves it. Wyatt Earp, seldom if ever with her.
  7. I don’t care who you are, that’s just plain awesome.
  8. J-bar, watch “The Farthest”, also on Prime (2017). About the Voyager spacecraft launched in 1977. You’ll have a lump in your throat at the end of that one too.
  9. Like many others, my avatar has disappeared. Could someone please point me in the direction of how to re-upload? I'm not finding an obvious link.
  10. Ed Harris' character in the HBO series "Westworld" used one, but he loaded it with cartridges.
  11. It surprised me because it was such a central element in earlier seasons.
  12. Just finished watching episode 3. Walker is shown getting out of the shower from a couple of angles, clearly without the Y brand on his chest. Appears others have lost theirs too. Has there been company sponsored plastic surgery or plot cleansing of that theme?
  13. At the academy awards that year, a man streaked across the stage when David Niven was speaking. Niven quipped, “Apparently that man doesn’t mind showing his shortcomings.”
  14. Buy some factory Win AA and/or Rem STS, shoot ‘em, save the hulls. Unless you’re planning for an apocalypse, you won’t need many for buckshot loads. I go bucket diving after a match for once-fired hulls. AAs are more common than STS.
  15. Old video, but still relevant:
  16. All those photos need is a 1950s Japanese sci-fi monster rampaging across the landscape, like Godzilla, Gamera, Mothra etc. As I recall, they were released from the earth's crust. Seriously, I hope damage is minimal as in '84.
  17. No worse than Powers Booth’s (Curly Bill) 17 shots in his drug-addled rampage in Tombstone.
  18. My vote for best non-western gunfight was toward the end of LA Confidential. There were a couple of good ones earlier in the movie. I’ll have to go back to Appaloosa. Haven’t watched that in a long time.
  19. Gotta love Dr. Strangelove. One of my favorite movies. They made the most of the B&W medium. adding on in the spirit of Cary Grant films Philadelphia Story Bringing up Baby
