russian snow removal machines

The snow removal machines in Russia are called “peons” or
“peasants”.

build your own munchkin

You take a male and female of breeding age, put them in a room together with some cheap boxed wine…

animal that can be killed with a 7.62 nato

The 7.62 NATO, a.k.a. the .308 Winchester, has the moxie to kill anything that walks on legs on this good Earth.  It wouldn’t be my first choice for large and dangerous game like bear, lion, or elephant, but it will do the job with proper shot placement.

fun museums in chatanooga tn for children

I don’t know about kid museums, but the ‘Nooga has the Tennessee Aquarium…three hundred tanks of large mouth bass.  “Bring your own fishin’ poles, kids!” (Now featuring Blinky, the three-eyed fish, caught in the Clinch River near Oak Ridge.)

magazine disassembly h&k 91

There’s a little button/nub in the center of your magazine’s floor plate.  Push it in all the way, and carefully slide off the floor plate to remove the mag spring and follower.  Hold your hand over the bottom opening when you slide that floor plate off, because the magazine spring will pop out with enthusiasm.

how to make jacking off just like sex

If you want to make it just like sex between a married couple with small kids, you jack off maybe once or twice a week, only late in the evening, usually on the weekend, and after drinking half a box of Franzia. 

reuben horseradish

What is “Two things that absolutely don’t go together, ever”?  Putting horseradish on a Reuben is called “contamination”.

alphasmart 3000 vs alphasmart neo

They’re the same size and do the same job, but the Neo has a much nicer keyboard, twice the memory of the 3000, a display that shows six lines of proportional text versus four lined of fixed-width text, and a handy word count feature that the 3000 lacks.

“model m” black ibm

The black Model M is called the M13, and they still sell for north of $100 on fleaBay whenever one pops up.  Alternatively, you can get a black Model M clone over at Unicomp for $69, and it’ll be USB-native.

printing money not creating wealth

Simply put: if you increase the money supply without increasing the supply of desired commodities, all you’re going to accomplish is to drive up prices.  If you printed a hojillion bucks, and gave everyone in the country a million bucks as a stimulus, what do you think would happen to the prices of real estate, groceries, clothes, guns, spinning rims, and liquor?  Before you know it, we’d be going grocery shopping with wheelbarrows full of hundred-dollar bills.

kitty roca dog treat recipe

It’s not so much a recipe, actually.  Kitty roca is what we call the contents of the litterbox that are irresistible to many dogs.  (If you want to know why it’s called that, look at a piece of almond roca, and it’ll all become clear.)

neil gaiman word processor

As far as I know, Neil Gaiman’s word processor is a fountain pen.  I don’t know what he uses to transcribe his longhand into the computer later.  Just remember that the finished product is what matters, not how you get it down on paper.  (Shakespeare wrote all his stuff with a quill, but I’ll never be able to write like he did, no matter how many geese I pluck.)

becoming a parent means…

Ugh.  Pull up a chair and don’t make any plans for the morning…I have a list.  (Maybe I should make that a blog post in its own right.)  Here’s one to start:

Becoming a parent means that you’re no longer the most important person in your own life.

 

That’s today’s “Will Spring Just Fucking Get Here, Please?” edition of the MSTS.  Tune in again next week for another round!

    Being a parent means . . . suddenly understanding why your own parents listen to you complaining about your kids, and then laugh at you.

    Little Red1 is right and rodger your last point.

    “becoming a parent means”

    …caring more about someone else than yourself.

    …copious amounts of snot, poop, and other noxious bodily secretions

    …experiencing the magic and wonder of things like Christmas, Disney, and magnets through the eyes of a child.

    Yes, Marko, there’s easily a post in that one line…

    Worse than that, a dog treat manufacturer has actually begun selling treats called “kitty roca”… yeah… I’m sticking with the Buddy Biscuits and my eye twitches a bit every time I pass them on my way to pick up chow for the critters.

    Don’t forget to stop just short of climax, and randomly bring a glass of water or a toy to your roommate in the next room, then try to pick up where you left off.

    Jeff Cooper was fond of the following saying: There’s few things that can’t be fixed/with $700 and a .30-’06.
