german airbone troop beret
I don’t know what the elite parachuting German Shepherd Division use as headgear, but the German airborne troops (Fallschirmjäger) wear the maroon beret, just like all the other airmobile branches in the German Army. In fact, the maroon beret is pretty much the international standard for airborne troops (except for the Russkies, whose paratroopers wear sky-blue berets.)
olympia typestyle 69
That’s the script-like typeface found on some Olympia-brand typewriters. Among “cursive” typefaces, it’s considered one of the more aesthetic and desirable ones by typewriter aficionados. I have a green Olympia SM4 with a wide carriage and Olympia Typestyle 69 typeface, and it’s my favorite typer in the stable. (For those of you keeping count, I’m up to five now: the SM4, an Olympia SM9, a Royal KHM that Robin gave me for my birthday, a Smith-Corona Galaxie Twelve I rescued locally, and a Royal DeLuxe Portable I got out of a deceased friend’s estate.)
nuts with guns
Here you go:
Olympia was a German typewriter company of the 1930s to 1970s. Like many German-made things, Olympias are well-crafted, solidly built, and precisely engineered, according to the German design maxim of “Why use one part when you can use fifteen to do the same job?”
Brand preference is as common among typewriter users as it is among gun owners or car enthusiasts. I’m an Olympia guy, although I like my Royals and the Smith-Corona as well. Hemingway was a Royal man. As recently discussed, Cormac McCarthy is an Olivetti guy. Screenwriter Larry McMurtry uses a Hermes, which he thanked when he accepted the Emmy for a screenplay. Paul Auster has been using the same Olympia SM9 for thirty-odd years.
classy chick gun
I am not aware of any gun design that fires baby chickens. They would probably make poor projectiles, anyway—they’re not aerodynamic, have poor sectional density, and are difficult to stack in magazines.
the most comfortable keyboard
That’s a subjective category. I like the old clickety IBM Model M (using one right this moment, in fact), but some people can’t stand them. Ergonomically speaking, the Logitech Wave isn’t bad—if they could make one of those with the buckling-spring keyswitches of the Model M, I’d buy a dozen.
how to conceal sword
You conceal it by keeping it on the wall of your room, moron. Better yet, leave it in the closet in case a girl ever stumbles into your den accidentally. Even better still, conceal that sword by leaving it on the shelf of the comic book store back at the mall. Gandalf you are not, and using a sword in public—even in righteous self-defense—will make you look like a bit of a fruitcake to a jury.
olympia typewriter four dots key
That’s the margin release. When you near the margin on the right side of the page, a little bell will ring to let you know that you’re about five to seven characters away from the margin stop. If you end up hitting the margin anyway, and you still have a letter or two to type, you can press the key with the four dots to override the hard margin for the current line, and squeeze in those extra letters.
samsung nc10 play flight sim
The Samsung NC10, like most netbooks, has the Intel GMA950 graphics chip, which is to other graphics chips as an asthmatic fifth-grader is to a Marine fresh out of boot camp. You’ll be able to play some older flight sims, but even FS2004 will probably only run acceptably at low resolution and detail settings.
internet forums michael christian warrior
I don’t know what this search string is all about, but it is my experience that whenever someone refers to themselves as a “Warrior for <insert name of deity or religion>”, it’s time to back away slowly without making eye contact, because ninety-nine times out of a hundred, you’re dealing with an unpleasant fruitcake.
And that’s it for this Monday! Tune in again next week, when we pluck another selection of search term hits out of our blog stats for easy blogging material!
