f88 austeyr rifle-ebay
Contrary to what Sarah Brady and the VPC are telling folks, you can’t get guns off eBay, especially not fully automatic ones like the Austeyr (which is the current service rifle of the Australian military.) Hell, the gun-fearing weenies at eBay get their panties in a wad over magazines. I’m surprised they still allow the sale of holsters, actually, but I guess they haven’t been able to come up with a good rationalization why a piece of leather sewn into holster shape is more dangerous than one sewn into a purse shape…especially since both of them can hold a handgun.
make selective fire cz 75
Ooh, that’s a big no-no. Turning (or even trying to turn) an off-the-shelf semi-auto pistol into a machine pistol will get you the attention of the BATFEIEIO, and ten years or so in Club Fed.
If you have the proper license to manufacture a legal machine gun, you wouldn’t be searching the Intertubes on how to do it, so I strongly advise you to leave that Cee-Zed in its factory-original configuration, which is one bang per trigger pull. (Take it from someone who’s had the opportunity to legally shoot a select-fire Glock 18—machine pistols are pretty pointless, and merely a fun way to waste a lot of ammo.)
best simple writer laptop
As a writer, you’re in the lucky position to not need a lot of processing power. Word processors can run on incredibly modest hardware. Your main shopping criteria should be a good keyboard, long battery life, and decent portability. (If you only write at home, you can scratch the last item.) I like MacBooks and iBooks because they can run Scrivener, and the Alphasmart Neo because it runs for a year on a set of AA batteries. (If someone ever made a Neo that runs Scrivener, it would be the Best Writing Thingy Evar, and I’d buy ten.)
what does lobster shells do to a dogs stomach
Let’s think about this for a second. You have hard lobster shells that have lots of shaprp edges from getting cracked, in addition to all the natural defensive spikes and ridges on a lobster’s armor. What do you think all these sharp edges and spikes will do as they course through a dog’s soft and squishy digestive tract?
(Pro tip: When Rover eats lobster shells, and then starts bleeding from his southbound orifice. get him to a vet, instead of getting on the Internets to find out what to do next.)
why do liberals hate libertarians
Because libertarians are heartless, selfish people who would let the poor die in the streets. (Conservatives hate them because they’re irresponsible chowderheads who would let people buy pot and cocaine at Walgreens on the way to the abortion clinic.)
In general, both liberals and conservatives like the part of libertarian ethos that goes “Nobody gets to tell you what to do…”, but they hate the part that goes, “…but you don’t get to tell anyone else what to do, either.”
fatherhood, the toughest job you’ll ever have
I don’t know about fatherhood per se. Siring offspring is actually somewhat easy, and there are tons of male progenitors whose involvement in their childrens’ lives is limited to sending child support checks and the occasional birthday cards.
Parenting, however, is a tough job, without a question. As I’ve mentioned before, being a stay-at-home Dad to two kids is the toughest job I’ve had, even more demanding than military service. The mental demands of being on the job 24/7 without time off combine with the cyclical and never-ending nature of your tasks to grind you down a little every day. It’s fun, it’s rewarding, and it damn sure is more important than any other job you’ve ever had, but it isn’t easy.
conservation of mass and werewolves
Werewolf fiction that respects the law of conservation of mass works around the rule that the mass in a closed system remains constant. For werewolves, that would mean that a 120-pound person would be a 120-pound wolf—no transforming into some hulking 600-pound monster. Werecritter stories that respect the law of conservation instead of just waving the “It’s Magic!” wand tend to center around critters that are roughly similar in mass to adult humans: wolves, jaguars, leopards, cougars/mountain lions, and so on. No werebears or weretigers, since a 600-pound weretiger or 1,200-pound weregrizzly would be incredibly obese in human form.
munchkin wrangler moleskine
I like the concept of the Moleskine, but not the execution. The paper in the Moles doesn’t take fountain pen ink too well, and they’re overpriced for what you get.
My favorites these days are Piccadillys, which are Moleskine clones. They’re half the price of the Moles, and have better paper quality for fountain pen use. Borders carries the Piccadillys for $4, $5, and $6 respectively for the small, medium, and large sizes. Toss in one of the usual 30% off coupons, and the large Pics are under five bucks, which beats the pants off paying $15 for a Moleskine.
chihuahua is biting our family
If the little rat is biting the family, you have a behavioral problem, because it doesn’t respect or understand the pack hierarchy in your family (in which the dog ranks at the bottom.) You need to fix that, because a dog showing aggression to his masters is not acceptable. Seek professional help from a dog trainer, if you don’t know how to handle the issue.
songs about becoming a parent
If they’re written by people who aren’t yet parents, they’re usually centered around open arms, the miracle of life, the joy of impending parenthood, and so on.
If they’re written by people who are already parents, they’re usually centered around alcohol.
That’s Lamy’s flagship fountain pen. (The pen in my current header image is a Lamy 2000, with an extra-fine nib.) If you’re looking for a new high-quality fountain pen to last you for decades, and you don’t want to take out a bank loan for a writing implement, then the Lamy 2000 is your best bet.
"to each according to their need"
The second half of that maxim goes, “…from each according to their ability.” It gets college Marxists all excitedly nodding their heads and pumping their fists in agreement. That’s because college Marxists haven’t had enough life experience yet to know that such a system greatly encourages need, and greatly discourages ability. Sooner or later, you need a government apparatchik to decide on your exact levels of need and ability, and they’re never in agreement with your own assessment.
And that’s your Monday morning distraction from the soul-crushing drudgery that is the start of the week! Tune in again next week for another edition!
