designer dog demographic
That’s easy: they’re mostly shallow idiots who are willing to blow a thousand bucks on a mutt from a trailer park “breeder”, when they could have gotten a healthier one from the pound for the $40 adoption fee without subsidizing someone else’s Coors or hydrogen peroxide habit. Tip: if it has a name that sounds like a candy bar, it’s not a real breed.
(Cue indignant comments from enraged designer dog-owning readers in three…two…one…)
can an arisaka hurt a 12 year olds shoulder
The Arisaka is an old school battle rifle, firing a full-power cartridge comparable to the .303 British. It will hurt even an adult’s shoulder if that adult’s shooting technique is poor. Conversely, even a 12-year-old can shoot one just fine with good rifle fu: tuck the butt into your shoulder good and tight, hold the rifle firmly, lean into the gun instead of standing straight up or leaning back, and you’ll be fine.
Here’s the recipe: sixteen ounces of vodka, a splash of vermouth, and a small handful of M&Ms. Great for naptimes!
how to fill an ipod
With a very small funnel or a syringe, through the headphone port. Your iPod will be full when the liquid reaches the top of the screen. I have to warn you, however, that an iPod makes a very poor hip flask due to low internal volume.
1st person present tense novels
Chuck Palahniuk’s Fight Club is my favorite example of a First Person Present Tense narrative done well. If the writer can pull it off, it has unmatched potential for immediacy and energy, and can rope the reader into the narrative very quickly. If the writer can’t pull it off, it reads like a bad eighth-grade essay on “What I Did On My Summer Vacation”. I just spent nine months drumming out a science fiction novel using that particular tense and perspective. Its disadvantages are a severely constrained point of view, and the inability to get into the heads of characters other than the narrator. Of all the tense/perspective combinations, I find this one the hardest to use effectively.
If you must decock your loaded revolver, put one thumb on the hammer spur to gently lower the hammer while slowly pulling the trigger. Put the other thumb in front of the firing pin, so you’ll only hear a *snap*OW! instead of a BOOM if your thumb slips on the hammer. Truthfully, though–you shouldn’t ever need to cock the hammer on a double-action wheelgun. My revolvers all still have their single-action notches, but I can’t recall the last time I cocked the hammer on them while shooting. Learn the double-action trigger, and you’ll learn to love the double-action trigger.
what is a collective right
It’s like the Jabberwocky, or the tooth fairy, or a politician with integrity: a fictional creature that exists only in fairy tales. Rights can only ever be individual, which means that you cannot gain a right by joining a mob, no matter how shiny the issued badges are, or how many of your neighbors are part of it.
fotos de dresden masacre
This may be a linguistic barrier, my Francophone friend, but the Dresden bombing wasn’t a “massacre” in the strict sense of the word. The term you want to use for your Google search is “fotos de dresden grudgefuck“.
olympia typestyle 69
That’s the lovely cursive typeface that came as an optional type on Olympia typewriters. I have an early SM-4 from 1960 that has Typestyle 69, and you can see writing samples by searching for the “typecast.” tag here on this blog. Of all the cursive typewriter scripts I’ve seen, the Olympia one is the prettiest, IMHO.
she could suck the chrome off a towball
Now that’s a useless skill. If you let her suck the chrome off your tow ball, it will start to rust. That chrome is there for protection just as much as for looks. Offer her something else to suck on, like a lollipop, or a bag of Lifesavers, and keep her away from any chrome-plated objects.
That was the fiftieth edition of the MSTS, friends and neighbors! That means I’ve been doing this particular feature for almost a year now. Should I keep it running for another year, Intertubes?
