both sides of a million dollar bill
There is no legal U.S. tender in that denomination…yet.
self powered snowblower
Most snowblowers are self-propelled. This is handy, because not everyone is a linebacker who can wrestle three hundred pounds of machinery up and down a sloped driveway.
calvin religion stickers
The stickers where Calvin (or a slightly altered version of him) kneels in front of a cross in prayer? Those are intellectual theft. Bill Watterson never authorized Calvin & Hobbes for merchandising. I think there are better ways to showcase your faith than by committing theft. (I’m pretty sure there’s a commandment that says “Thou Shalt Not Steal”…)
flight simulator x samsung nc10
The NC10 has the rather underwhelming Intel GMA950 graphics chip in it. FS X will not run very well. FS2004 runs okay at medium detail settings, but 2004 requires a CD-ROM in the drive, and the NC10 doesn’t have a built-in optical drive. (You can probably find a “No CD” patch online somewhere.)
dillon 550 too much bell
Just give the powder die a few nudges with the die wrench to adjust the bell on the case.
how to send a file to a neo
You’ll have to use the Alphasmart Manager to send stuff back to the Neo. If you don’t have the Alphasmart CD, you can download the AS Manager here.
best jframe for personal carry
That’s pretty subjective, but I personally prefer the “Airlite” J-frames with the alloy frames. To me, the J is best carried in a pocket, and that calls for a lightweight gun. If you’re going to stick it on your belt, you can go for a steel-framed version. I’ve always figured that if I wear a J-frame on my belt, I might as well be toting a K- or L-frame in the same spot.
(My favorite J-frame is the Model 642.)
There’s precisely one reliable source for canned haggis in these here United States, and that’s Caledonian Kitchen. That reminds me that I need to place a new order with them…we’re totally out of haggis, which is simply uncivilized. (Anyone wishing to mouth off about the nastiness of haggis, please hold your heretic tongues.)
That was a concept I put in front of Disney Channel for a new cartoon, but for some reason they wouldn’t go for it.
guns are impersonal knives are more intimate
Well, if you want to have a close and meaningful relationship with your attacker, then you should probably forego the gun and carry a knife. Me, I want a self-defense event to be as impersonal as possible. Click, boom, cleanup in Aisle Five. Nothing personal, no hard feelings–just rejecting an unacceptably termed business proposition.
when is a sword superior to a gun?
When you’re eighteen, you’re living in your parents’ garage on a steady diet of pizza and Cheetos, and your paycheck at the Burger King is enough for one of those swords from the late-night blade show, but not enough for the handgun you’re not allowed to buy yet, anyway. (You’ll come up with a million reasons why the sword is better than the gun anyway, and you’ll waste no time going online and sharing your expertise on every martial arts and gun board on the Internet.)
That’s it for this Monday, folks! Make sure you tune in again next week for another Search Term Safari, where we take zebra-striped mopeds through the wilderness of my Blog Stats page.
