holding gun in mouth
I call that the “Martin Riggs carry”. Seriously, though: you probably should invest in a decent holster instead. Your mouth makes a poor retention device, and if your gun falls out, chances are that you’ll fumble to catch it, and shoot yourself by accident in the process. (Really Serious Safety Tip #1992: NEVER TRY TO CATCH A FALLING GUN. Most guns have drop safeties, and won’t discharge in a drop.)
alphasmart neo sunlight
One of the strong points of the Neo is the LCD screen that actually becomes more readable in direct sunlight. I use the Neo in the sunny backyard on occasion, where the direct sunlight makes a laptop screen difficult to read, especially the new screens with the glossy finish.
who is marko kloos
He’s one of God’s own prototypes. Some high-powered mutant never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.
25 acp self defense tactic
With all the silly jokes about .25ACP (“If you shewt someone with it, and they find out, they’re gonna be pissed, harr harr!”), it’s worth to point out that the teensy .25 will put you into the grave if that little pill intersects with a vital organ, and that this caliber is probably responsible for more gunshot fatalities than most other calibers. It’s a commonly used caliber in small, cheap pistols common in rough neighborhoods. While a large part of the .25s self-defense value comes from the fact that nobody wants to get shot with anything, the self-defense tactic is the same as for larger calibers: don’t do stupid things in bad places, run away from trouble…and only if you absolutely have no other option, shoot until the threat is stopped.

airborne beret british
Military history fact: the maroon beret that’s now the de facto worldwide standard for airborne units was introduced by British General Frederick Browning in 1942. The color was chosen by his wife, the novelist Daphne Du Maurier.
astra constable hollow point problem
“Doctor, it hurts when I do that.” “Then stop doing that.”
Seriously: if your Astra Constable doesn’t work well with hollowpoints, use ball ammo. Reliability is the most important factor in a defensive firearm, and truth be told, I don’t feel too bad about carrying ball in the calibers below 9mm Luger. They all go too slow to reliably expand the bullet most of the time, anyway, and I take penetration over expansion any day of the week, especially with the small pills.
“liver for sale” indonesia
Here’s an interesting read for those of you who think that we need to ban the sale of organs, lest the eebil rich peepul take advantage of poor brown folk:
Two years ago, I posted a few paragraphs on the subject of selling one’s organs, without any indication that I am in the market for a new kidney or liver. Go and have a look at the comments on that post, and count up all the offers for kidneys from aforementioned poor brown folk. (I didn’t delete those on purpose.)
The ban on organ sales only accomplishes two things: it generates waiting lists for donor organs (and thereby kills the people who die before their name floats to the top of the list), and it denies the willing sellers a way out of poverty.
There’s the MSTS for today, fresh off the search term section of this here Interblogs thingie. (Guess what the most popular search term is right now? If you guessed “a certain Jersey Shore hooker”, award yourself a pat on the back.)
