fbi smith and wesson model 10
The Feebs issued the Model 10 for a while, including a “FBI only” version with a 2.5″ heavy barrel. The 3″ Model 13 is the more versatile gun, but if you can find one of those 2.5″ HB models, buy it. They’re a lot less common, and pretty mean carry pieces in their own right.
vespa grande moped
In the U.S., the Vespa Grande is called the Venti, because everything is bigger here.
why can’t felons bare arms?
Because they have trouble rolling the sleeves of their prison shirts up over their muscular forearms, which have been bulked up by free weight training courtesy of the taxpayers.
“calvin & hobbes t-shirts”
Bill Watterson, the creator of Calvin & Hobbes, never licensed C&H for any sort of merchandising, despite the fact that he could have made millions of dollars from it. Therefore, any and all C&H merchandise you see is intellectual property theft.
oakeshott xiv vs a katana
It’s a draw. When I put an Oakeshott XIV sword next to a Katana, nothing happens–they’ll just start to slowly oxidize.
(Look, a weapon is as effective as the person wielding it. Give one of those swords to someone who knows how to fight with a blade, and the other to a soft-handed accountant who has never thrown a punch in his life, and the first guy will slice up the second guy, no matter which sword you place in which hand. There is no weapon that will magically bestow superior skills on the wielder.)
my brain is best at early morning
So’s mine, which is a shame, because I’m usually asleep at that time.
pet fisher cats
You want a perpetually pissed-off mustelid as a pet? Why not skip the intermediate steps and go with a wolverine?
“This is Chucky, my wolverine. Here, Chucky, show the man how you can shake…YEEEEROW! AUUUUUGH! GERROFF!”
“initiation of force is moral”
Not in my book. I’m a firm believer in the Non-Aggression Principle, which means I abhor the initiation of force against anyone for any reason. That does not, however, mean that I don’t believe in self-defense. The only moral use of force is retaliatory.
kneeling in front of dog
If you kneel in front of a dog, he will think you’re lowering yourself to his level because you want to play with him, or perhaps pet him. If you’re looking for a pet that will understand it as a gesture of deference, you need to get a cat.
adding ram does it need to be the same speed
The new RAM can be faster than the old RAM. It’ll just clock itself down as needed. Just don’t buy anything that’s slower than your existing RAM, or you risk a runaway nuclear fission reaction that will obliterate your entire city block and leave nothing but a smoking hole in the ground. (It has to do with the alignment of the dilithium spheres in the memory chips, and their tendency towards temporary variable flux. It’s true–ask any systems administrator.)
do people live on the atlantic ocean
Yes, they do! They have a habitat that’s anchored between Greenland and Ireland. It’s called “Iceland”.
is phrenology falsifiable
Yes, it is. You can get any result you desire by simply applying a hammer to the cranium of the reading subject, until you have the lumps and dents you want.
the right to bear arms shouldnt be allowed
I hate to break this to you, but as long as I have a brain and two functioning hands, I have that right and the ability to exercise it. The desk lamp next to me, or the pencils in the cup on my desk, all have the capacity to be used as weapons. I can go outside, break a stick off a tree, and sharpen it into a spear–or spend a bit more time and turn it into a projectile-launching weapon–and there’s absolutely no law that can eliminate that ability. Whether you like it or not, people have the desire for personal weapons, and the ability to make them out of stuff we find around us at a moment’s notice. And by the way: it’s not up to you to decide what should be “allowed” to me, thank you very much.
That’s it for this Monday’s edition of Search! Term! Safari! Tune in next week, when I answer more queries about midget porn and two-wheeled European conveyances.
