  1. The only good thing a Restraining Order does is show a pattern of behaviour from the Bad Guy. 

    Kind of the same way a CCW shows that you're the good law abiding citizen if you ever have to shoot some jackass that richly deserves it.

    I’ve known that word since my early misspent youth. Hinky is indeed a situation or object that is not “right” as in suspect or just plain hinky! :wacko:

    I've heard it on Cop shows since the '70s

    Sadly though, I have to admit I was born in that Kali like state. :( Moved when I was 5 and now mostly just travel thru!

    You can't help where you were born. I was born in Ohio simply because that's where my mother was and thought I needed to be close to her. ;)I left there at 22 and basically never looked back. You were smart enough to leave Massachusetts which shows that you've got at least some sense. B)Your hanging around here calls some of that into question though.:wacko:

    "Sorry, we don't have any iced tea available"

    "So you're telling me that you don't have any water, tea bags or sweetener?"

    "Probably don't even have grits...now do ya?"

    They didn't.

    Hey, I'm not particularly nasty, in most cases anyhow!

    When I say Pilgrims I specifically mean people in Massachusetts. I can't say that I've had a problem with anybody I've known from Vermont.

    I say "in" Massachusetts, because I've known people from Massachusetts who were good people, and once they left the place and found out how decent people act, said that they were never going back.

    Now, see, that’s painting with a really broad Yankee profiling brush. I can guarantee you in the country parts of some Yankee states if you ask for iced tea any time of year you will hear “Do you want sweet or unsweetened, Hon?”

     

    Also, anyone that will not eat ice cream in the winter is someone to steer clear of ‘cause they’re pretty really mean people. The kind that put a hair in their milk and poke holes in the assorted chocolates at Christmas. :P

    Not saying anything specifically against Yankees in general, but Pilgrims are particularly nasty people and should be avoided if at all possible. Especially if you have a Southern accent.

    When I was driving long haul, I don't think I ever had a problem finding iced tea, even in Chicago.

    When I first heard of this book

    The author was explaining how you knew if you were a southern belle. Two things stuck with me - she had a list.

     

    One was if you were in your fifties and you still called your father Daddy.

     

    And another one was ordering iced tea in a blizzard.

     

    She said that she was visiting some friends in New York City one time, and there was a blizzard blowing, and she and her friends went into this restaurant to get out of the snow and the cold. She noticed that half of her friends ordered coffee, and the other half ordered hot chocolate, while she ordered iced tea. That was when she realized that she was a southern belle.

    During my misspent youth in The Marines, I had the misfortune to be stationed at the Naval Air Station in Weymouth Mass. Weymouth is South of Boston a bit. Being a proud Redneck, I always used to order Iced Tea when out to dinner. I can't count how many upturned nosed waiters and waitresses told me that they didn't have Iced Tea because it was Winter and not Iced Tea season. I can't tell you how many, but it was the same number of places that I walked out of.

    Maybe that's the brain tumor that makes him think that this looks okay.

  10. Back in the '70s, Clint Eastwood had a place in Carmel called "The Hog's Breath Inn".

     

    In a slightly different vein, back in Columbus Ohio there used to be an outfit driving red trucks with "Caution Explosives" signs on them. They supplied popcorn to movie theaters.

  11. That stainless S&W looks to be a Model 681, think a fixed sight 686. 

    As for the .44 Magnum Diamondback, I don't think so. The Diamondback was a smaller framed revolver. They were only made in .22 and .38. I think, and I may be wrong here, that it's the same frame as a Detective Special.

  12. I absolutely detest the whole body modification business. Now I'll bet that many of you guys have tattoos. And I suppose that's fine. But when I see an otherwise attractive person, woman OR man that is covered with tattoos and piercings, I simply find it displeasing.

    Since the Air Craft was still onna taxiway, would make much more sense to put the round thru the PILOT.  Dead pilots don't fly airplanes.

    Was thinking the same thing - cockpits are relatively compact; 1, 2 or 3 rifle rounds passing thru would definitely get the pilots attention.

    Not to mention that aircraft are made of aluminium, and the skin is THIN aluminum. But if a round or two were to hit the cockpit, and miss the pilot, they could still tear up an instrument panel and damage the controls.
