    Sorry to tell you but there’s not enough of you Anti-Self serve folks to make the stores change. You’re fighting a losing battle, I believe we’re going to see more and more of them!

    That may be, but I'll still tilt at the windmill as long as I am able.

    You are a good man!

    I was thinking the same thing. 

    I had my own tracking weirdness yesterday. I was watching the tracker coming my way, and it stopped about 2 blocks from my house. It stayed stationary while I watched the driver pull up to my house, run up and throw my package onto my deck, (it was some driver bits, so no damage, but it was still a bit unseemly), and drive off. Then the tracker disappeared.

    resistance to insulin

    I'm only Type 1 Diabetic, but I don't want to get worse. I keep hearing about "Insulin Resistance". They say that one of the keys to beating it is to lose weight. But Insulin Resistance makes it hard to lose weight.:wacko:

    As for ice cream, this is what I eat:


    And it's GOOOOD!!

    I agree with Alpo that the guy that has to put my abandoned shopping cart away doesn't care. The Manager, if he has to have his people do this often enough, will.

    There are certain tasks that must be done. It's the Manager's job to see that they are done. If they are not, eventually he will have to explain why. It would take him, or the guy who he would eventually have put my stuff back on the shelves, a LOT less time and effort to just run the d**m register in the first place. 

    My daughter used to work at Walmart. Her Dept. Manager had a friend that wanted my daughter's job. She gave my daughter enough work that there were a few times that she had to finish 5 minutes of work after she was off the clock. She ended up getting my daughter FIRED for working off shift.

    Countless old buildings have asbestos from shingles to pipe or other insulation.  Many remain because removal is costly and dangerous.

    Many old homes also have it in floor tiles. I understand that they were usually a 9" X 9" tile. These were used into the 1960s.

    I've seen pictures of someone that kept their finger in the cylinder gap area of a S & W 500. Wasn't pretty...I'm real sure that he won't do that again...ever.

    I'm pretty sure that he CAN'T do it again.:ph34r:

    If you take a look at a revolver that has been shot a lot ( esp a high power revolver) you often notice the top strap right above the mouth of the barrel will actually look like it’s been partially cut. Well it has and that caused by VERY hot high velocity gas escaping between the mouth of the barrel and the cylinder face. You DO NOT want your hand blocking that gas, ( it cuts steel imagine what it will do to your hand )most revolvers are capable of causing severe burns or gas cutting of soft flesh even at cowboy velocity. Anyone interested enough to put a silencer on a gun with a gap between the chamber and the barrel probably needs to learn that lesson because there going to have a serious sound leak

    Mythbusters tested it some time back using ballistic gel fingers, and it was so bad that apparently youtube won't show it. Buy Jerry Miculek shows here what can happen substituting a hotdog for the finger.

    I can't even check out with a cashier.  I seldom actually buy anything in stores.  I usually get Mary to put what I need on her list. Or I'll find what I need and put it in the basket.  But one time I was on my own. Got what I wanted and headed for the 10 items or less that didn't have a line.  Rang up my purchase.  I tried to use my credit card. Wouldn't go. Tried several times.  The sales clerk came around to help me.  No wonder, I was trying to use my Department of Conservation card instead of a credit card.  

    My friend used to say that my credit was so bad that they wouldn't even take my cash.

    I will NOT use a self checkout. Even if the “Assistant” offers to check me out on one, I will decline. The “self” checkout still gets the credit for the sale and that’s what goes on the reports. 

    I don’t think I am alone. I have left a careful of items and walked out if there was no cashier. And I’ll do it again..


    Sam Sackett 

    If you have an account with them that has your payment info, (debit or credit card number), and you pay with it, Walmart sends you a survey in your email. When they do this, I will ALWAYS make it known whether I had to ask somebody to check me out at the self checkout, or if I was able to have a cashier check me out. 

    And while I've never HAD to leave a cart full of groceries, I've threatened to do so.

    They gave a Chief a weapon? That’s Nuts! Their trigger fingers will not work properly. They have coffee cup hooks, not trigger fingers. :lol:

    The other hand has two fingers sticking out to hold a cigarette.

    I can tell that on my ship we had quite a few “expert marksmen” aboard using small arms - M14s. Not poodle shooters. :P

    My first cruise the sailors gave us a "demo" of what the Old Chiefs could do with M14s. They hit the water every time.

  14. I just ask a Walmartian to check me out. Except for one Old Biddy at my local Super Walmart, they've always been happy to do so. And they seem to have cashiers available more than they did.

    A while back I was at my local Frys, (Kroger for those who might not know), and the Manager was directing people to the self checkouts as the cashiers were busy. So I asked him to check me out. He said that he could show me how to do it. So I told him that I know how to do it, but I don't work there, so he could either check me out or put the groceries away, I didn't care which. He checked me out.

    To me the selling point on the .44 Bulldog is the light weight, given the appealing caliber. It makes for very easy carry. 

    Light weight in a big bore. It's a niche for sure; maybe why it's the only one.

    I figure a Rossi 720 44 Special is next as well, just might take a tad longer to locate that one.


    44 Special is an absolute joy to shoot. Cannot go wrong with a 44 Special.

    Taurus also has a .44SPL, the 441. Pretty much like the previously mentioned 450. but also available in 4 and 6 inch barrels.

    They also made them, (441 and 450) in lightweight alloy frames. All sadly no longer produced. But you can sometimes find them on the used market.

    Anytime I start thinking no one could be THAT stupid, another election proves I have underestimated once again. 

    The way the other side cheats, I don't think that you can count election "results".
