fisher cat vs bobcat

Another Animal Cage Match! Two go in, one comes out!

Well, let’s see.  The fisher cat is a weasel that weighs between 5 and 15 pounds.  The bobcat is a feline that weighs between 15 and 30 pounds.  One is a ferret on steroids, the other is a large wildcat that has been known to kill prey as large as a deer.  While the fisher would probably put up an impressive fight, my money’s on the kitty.

That’s what Hagrid rode before he got his Flying Motorcycle license.  (The wizarding world has adopted the sensible European graduated license system, you see.)

p7m8 custom sights

The factory sights on the P7M8 are actually very good.  Whatever you get to replace them, make sure you have a good gunsmith do the job, because the gas-retarded blowback system on the P7 makes for some zesty slide speeds.  Replacement sights installed by Joe Bob’s Gunsmithing have been known to fly off guns on occasion in the middle of a shooting string.

why are homeschoolers anti vaccine

Not all homeschoolers are anti-vaxxers.  I doubt that  even the majority is anti-vaccine.  I’m certainly a big fan of modern medicine, and it makes me sad to see the anti-science attitudes that are pervasive these days.  There is no link between vaccines and autism.  There are, however, plenty of links between not getting vaccinated, and getting sick and/or dying from entirely preventable childhood diseases that were just about stamped out until the anti-vaccine idiots started spreading their nonsense over the Internet.

I brought the subject up with my pediatrician, and she had this to say about it:

“I studied my profession for close to ten years before starting my own practice.  I’ve been a practicing pediatrician for twenty years.  I’ve had to stay on top of all the research on the subject.  I love what I do, and I love my patients.  If there was the slightest bit of truth to those autism claims, I wouldn’t be giving shots.  To suggest that I would willingly inject them with something that I knew to be harmful would be gravely insulting to me.”

I’ll take my medicine evidence-based, thank you very much.

beretta 93fs holster

Since there are less than a dozen legally transferable 93Rs in the U.S., I’m going to guess that whatever kind of holster you get would have to be a custom jobbie, or a generic nylon sausage sack.  (If you mean the Beretta 92FS: that’s a common gun, being current U.S. issue and all.  Every holster maker in the book should have a pattern for a 92FS.)

pure silver glaser ammo

Glaser Silver ammo does not contain actual silver.  They’re filled with #6 shot, which penetrates better than the #12 shot in Glaser Blues.  The plastic nose cap is colored silver instead so you can tell them from the blue ones.

alpha smart

Alphasmart is a company that makes word processing keyboards.  The founders are former Apple employees.  Incidentally, the name “Alphasmart” won out over the other two choices they came up with: “Betadumb”, and “Omegaretarded.”

jehovah witness thumbtack

I’ve heard that thing about JWs leaving thumbtacks in people’s doorframes to signal their conversion status to other missionaries, but I’ve never actually seen it done, despite getting a few visits from the JWs at our old place.  One thing’s for sure, though: regardless of your religious affiliation or motivation for doing so, you don’t stick unwanted things onto my doorframe, unless you want me to take them off post haste and affix them to your posterior instead.

hispanic asset forfeiture

That sounds like a racist euphemism for some illegal activity, doesn’t it?

 

And there you go—the MSTS is back in its accustomed slot on the calendar, thereby massively improving your otherwise unbearable Monday morning!

    You say “these days” as though humanity being composed of a seething mass of gullible retards was some kind of new phenomenon… :p

    It’s just now they can communicate more efficiently.

      The only upside to that is that hopefully we can get everybody on the internets nattering to each other about anthropogenic young earth UFO Mayan vaccine autism, and they’ll be too busy to listen to the guy up at the big podium telling them to throw Jews in ovens and machine gun everybody who wears glasses.

      Audience fragmentation exploits the pettiness and short attention span of the naked chimp and makes mass movements harder to ignite and sustain.

    The irony of all these spacktards wittering their antiscience claptrap over a planet-spanning network of computers is almost unbearable.

  4. Rey B says:

    Isn’t ability to recognize irony usually dependent on intelligence?

    What is the difference between a Jehovah’s Witness and a Yugo?

    You can shut the door on a Jehovah’s Witness.

    But what if you had a large fisher cat (15 pounds) and a small bobcat (also 15 pounds)?

    • SirBeep says:

      I’d put my money on the weasel in that case. Or upgrade the Fisher to big brother Wolverine the same size as any cat in question and the kitty is lunch. I’ve had part Bobcat pets, and the tamest weasel, a ferret.

      Clear example: you’ve seen cats, including large cats on the animal porn channel, play with their food before killing it; you’ll never see a weasel do that. Maybe the corpse afterward, but that sucker will be dead fast. And if you manage to catch a cat by the scruff you’ve got a good chance on him, no matter what point on a weasel you catch he’ll be able to bring 4 out of 5 implements of destruction to bear upon you.

    As one of Jehovah’s Witnesses myself I can assure you that we do not put thumbtacks in people’s doorframe. We do not deface others property. If someone puts a thumbtack in your doorframe, look elsewhere. It is not Jehovah’s Witnesses.

    I’ll also the JW crowd points for politeness. They actually respect my “No Solicitors” sign. They just leave their literature on the doorstep, and leave without knocking.

    As for other missionary’s thumbtack codes … put a black one ( house occupied by violent gang ) in the sill yourself.

    Heh.

    But she does inject vaccines that are harmful to some, and she will never know the difference until one reacts.

    My mother is one of those unfortunates, she contracted Guillain-Barre from one of the older strains of the flu vaccine in 1992. Her life has been a struggle ever since. She worked in a doctor’s office and her, a nurse and a patient that all were vaccinated from the same lot managed to get the disease. They tried suing, but based on the amount of vaccines administered that year, it was found to be within the published risk assessment.

    Now, I am not saying that I am anti-vaccinations. In fact, I receive more vaccinations every year than most, including anthrax. My child has had all of the normal vaccinations as well. What I do not do is go into the process blindly. I am well versed in the risk vs gain factors. Vaccinations are truly a gamble, one with good odds, but still a chance to lose.
