    I’m well acquainted with them. A skill scoffed at originally, but valued many years later when refinishing the floors of my house. :)

    X2, She is leaning away from the gun, no magazine, finger on the trigger with her instructor's hand near the muzzle, that is genuine ignorance from both of them.

    Could be. Perhaps it’s simpler than that, and the pic was just posed for the gag.

    Reckon she's left handed with a right master eye? I watched a right-handed boy with a left master eye shooting a 22 rifle almost the same way.

    If you hand a long gun to someone who’s never held one before, they rarely know where their hands go and which eye to use. I’ve seen that a lot with young scouts.

    They would go shopping together, and occasionally go out to lunch.  The 3 of us would go square dancing together.  My ex and I also danced the rounds between tips.  When I needed a break the two of them would dance the tip with my ex as the left hand (man's) part.


    My ex and her husband would on a somewhat regular basis would treat us to dinner out.

    Ummm, yeah…you live in a galaxy far, far away from mine.

    Seriously, I’m happy for you. :)

    One year, the Year of the Perfect Tree, we got to the tree farm in two vehicles, I got there first in my pickup, my wife drove my ex and arrived about 2 minutes later.  She walked up to me and said, "I found the perfect tree!"  Mind, we hadn't even explored the trees, she saw it as she drove up.  She stood by it as I wandered to look over the others.  But she had "The Perfect Tree!"  And indeed it was.  About 10 feet, full, very symmetrical, gorgeous.  So we bought it.  Got it home, managed to get it into the stand.  We always let a tree "relax" a day before decorating it,  Half an hour later it fell over.  Got it back up, and it fell over again.  Put an eye-screw into the wall to tie it off.  It fell over.  
    When it fell over at 0300, I got a quarter sheet of plywood, mounted the stand on it with carriage bolts, put 3 cinderblocks on it.  Tree didn't fall over again.

    But LORDY!  was that tree gorgeous!

    I’m still stuck on the idea your wife and ex-wife alone in a car. I can’t wrap my head around that scenario in my world as a fatality would have occurred. :rolleyes:

    Many cars have steel lug nuts with a decorative cap over the steel. After several years corrosion forms between the underlying steel nut and the decorative cap. This causes the cap to swell so that a lug wrench will no longer fit.


    Happened to my late wife's mini van. Fortunately the tire dealer had a set of special sockets just to remove these cheap chinese abominations. Replaced them with an all steel nut.

    I just keep 18 and 19mm sockets handy at home for my Jeep. 19mm with the cap, 18 without. For traveling, a cap that fell off makes a dandy shim to keep with the wrench that came with the car.

  7. We were living on the Marine air station at Iwakuni in May of 1959. On May Day that year, a bunch of commies rioted at the base entrance, so the base fire department turned the hoses on them. Thus ended the riot. Seems we could resurrect that tactic for some of today’s antics.

    I think they work, you don't see a lot of smokers these days down here












    I’m sure they’re heavily taxed too, which makes the government addicted to the revenue. 

    The dirty little secret in this country is the taxes collected on tobacco, which they say is to defray the cost of treating smoking related illnesses, are mostly diverted for general spending. 

    Years ago the states sued the tobacco companies to “recover” health expenditures. Each state received several billion dollars. Audits later showed that the state of Missouri only spent 6 hundred thousand dollars on health initiatives, while the rest of their 2 billion settlement went to general revenue. That was just one example. I'm sure most states did the same.

    The hypocrites can’t afford to have anyone quit smoking.

    This photograph goes back some time, believed to be around 1914-15 outside the Enfield Cycle Co office.
    Capt. J.E. Alkin & Segt. J. Cocker can be seen trying out the the Royal Enfield 6HP V-Twin with machine gun sidecar. What a fascinating setup!
    May be an image of 1 person, motorcycle and text

    Sure would like to have that setup for all the morons who insist on tailgating at 70 mph. Honestly, some are so close their grill isn’t visible in my rear view mirror.

    It's less math, more observation.


    earbuds = 10 per pair

    person = 5 each

    watch = 4  per pair


    So -- last line:

    1 earbud = 5 

    1 watch = 2

    1 person = 5

    BUT WAIT! The person in the final line is wearing a pair of earbuds AND a watch!

    Therefore, person with pair of earbuds and a watch = 17


    Therefore, final equation is 5 + 17 X 2

    Order of ops with no parentheses, brackets, or exponents is multiply and divide left to right, then add and subtract left to right



    5  + 34



    Edited, because I noticed the person is also wearing a watch. Such fun:wacko:

    Sum of yous guys iz smart! I ar not…


    Fun brain teaser! :)
