Here you go:

van that good in snow

The best minivan for snow conditions would be one with a 4WD/AWD system.  Chrysler’s Town & Country comes in a 4WD version, and a few of the Japanese-built ones do, too.

comme on ass

Hmmm…your query isn’t spelled correctly, but I’m guessing that you want to get a Che Guevara tattoo on your butt.  That’s a good place for one, actually.

upgrading memory “4 gigabytes” nc10

The Samsung NC10 Netbook only supports a grand total of 2GB RAM.  It also sports only a single memory slot, so any upgrade will necessitate pulling out the old memory.  It’s plenty zippy with 1GB, though, since the little thing runs XP.  Mine’s fast enough to run World of Warcraft in just 1GB, so I don’t see a pressing need to put in another gigabyte.

german word for fountain pen?

The German word for fountain pen is Füllfederhalter, which is a compound word that translates to “fillable quill holder”.  In common use, it’s abbreviated to Füller.

morgan creek theme music

Morgan Creek’s theme music is the first part of the theme music to “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves”, which features a Robin Hood who slips from an English into a Midwestern accent on occasion.

lord of the dance 2005 knoxville tennessee

I was in Knoxville in 2005, but I have never claimed my dancing skills to be exceptional, much less Lord-like.  (Side note: I can’t hear or read the term “Lord of the Dance” anymore without thinking of Denis Leary’s stand-up bit about Michael Flatley.  “Lord of the fucking dance. Give me a break! That’s not how Irish people dance.  Ever seen an Irish guy dance at a wedding?” <mimics drunken stumbling and flailing>)

jeff cooper why the gun is civilization

Wow, that’s a new one…someone attributing my essay to the late Colonel Cooper.  That’s actually pretty flattering.  Someone thinks the essay is so good that the Colonel could have written it.

the munchkin humbug

That was the alternate title for this blog, actually.

how much is a smith and wesson 30.06 worth

That’s like asking “How much is a Ford with a V-8 engine worth?”  It depends entirely on the model, year of manufacture, and overall condition of your rifle.  But since you asked, I’ll give you a rough estimate based on the information you provide: anywhere between $75 and $10,000.


That’s pretty much any college football stadium in the country on game day. (Cue enraged indignation from college football fans in three…two…one…)

basic word processor

Here’s a really basic one:


yo quiero dog treats

Any dog that walks up to me and utters that request won’t have to do any “sit” or “shake” for his treat, because I’ll stuff him with Milk Bones all the way to the Today Show studio.

wrangler o’fortuna

That sounds like a really corny name for a Jedi Knight in a really crummy Star Wars fanfic novel.  (Or am I mistaken, and Carl Orff wrote Carmina Burana about an Irish guy named O’Fortuna?)

simple 1st birthday cake

Anything that’s easy to clean up–pound cake is perfect.  Avoid creamy fillings and/or toppings, unless you’re angling for the oh-so-adorable “look at that mess” photo.  (Around here, we’re pragmatists, and believe me when I tell you that we have plenty of photographic evidence of first-year mess-making.)


That’s it for this week, friends and neighbors.  See you again next Monday for another round of Search! Term! Safari!

    Did Smith & Wesson ever make anything that was chambered in .30-’06? The question is more like asking what a Yamaha or an Indian with a V-8 is worth.

  2. Marko says:

    No, they made rifles. (Actually, Howa in Japan made them for S&W, and S&W branded and sold them.)

  3. Jay G. says:

    Maybe they’re curious what a new I-bolt in .30-06 is selling for?

    Okay, yeah, it’s misattribution, but I don’t think I’d be able to get my head through a doorway for a week. 😀

    If you have any intact rifles in 30.06, I’ll take them all at $75.00 each.

    On that 1st birthday cake, don’t go with smurf blue. We did that, some 20 years ago. That blue food coloring, it doesn’t get processed very well, and the next day, you get blue poo.

    After carefully reading reviews on the web and YouTube i found out that the NC10 is the best netbook all around. I bought it along with the Crucial 2GB memory both for $489, as soon as it arrived i changed the memory module and i have to say that its way too easy anybody can do it. After fully charging the battery and setting up the OS i was very impressed.

    -Amazing battery life mine lasted a little more than 6 hours at normal performance.
    -You can select between Max battery life, normal and max performance which is great for saving battery life.
    -Great recovery tool, it saves the initial state of your laptop in case anything goes wrong you can just go back to the beginning
    – The keyboard is great, and the keys are in the right place unlike some other netbooks.
    -The screen is very bright and can be adjusted, also its not glossy so you don’t have the usual glare when using it outside and its very bright when using it outdoors.
    – Bluetooth and Wifi (The NC10 gets a better signal than my HP notebook).
    – It runs fast.
    – Great touchpad gestures.
    – Very nice design i specially like the front led’s at night.
    – Integrated webcam and the software for it is good, it allows you to record video and take still pictures.
    – Great connectivity: 3 USB, Ethernet, External display, mic, headphones, Memory card reader, Bluetooth and Wi-fi

    – You have to get used to the keyboard and keypad, the touchpad is small, takes a little bit of getting used to but the touchpad gestures make it way easier to use and you get used to both pretty quickly.
    – Was unable to install Adobe Illustrator due to the resolution of the screen (basically the screen is too small for that program) but not to worry i have it installed on my other computer.
    – The memory card reader is not compatible with the Memory Stick (MS) format it only accepts SD, SDHC and MMC.
    – Requires an external CD/DVD reader, but that’s to be expected on a netbook.

    Its a great netbook specially because of the battery life, great for traveling and moving around, i really appreciate the freedom it gives you since my old laptop’s batteries where old and gave up in only 40 minutes, now i have 6 hours of use, its very fast with 2GB (i highly recommend buying it along with the 2GB memory).

    Find cheap Samsung NC10 Netbook

  7. Frank says:

    The Samsung NC10 is a bit more expensive than its rival, the Acer Aspire One. Even though a cursory glance shows that they have the same features.

    The Features that made this a better buy than the Acer Aspire One:
    1. The 10.2 inch screen. the 1024×600 resolution seems to perfectly match the screen, graphics do not seem crammed inside the screen.
    2. The Keyboard. While most people shout from the rooftops about the full size right shift, I am left handed, so that did not matter. The keys are a pleasure to type on, springy enough to avoid tiring your hands.
    3. Bluetooth. Tether to your favorite phone and hit the road with 3G/EVDO goodness.
    4. Finally, the Battery LIFE! It is amazing, thanks to Samsung’s Battery monitor. I played CounterStrike 1.6 for 4.5 hours straight before getting bored. Doing late night homework, I started at 5, and at 12 I still had 22% or about an hour and then some remaining. As I typed this, I have 82% remaining, 5:45 min relative time.
