what are the best cows for butchering
The best cows for butchering are the kind made of meat. You should avoid butchering cows made out of the following substances: wood, brick, Styrofoam, fiberglass, bronze, potassium nitrate.
“copyright infringement is theft”
Of course it is. You’re taking something that was created by someone else, and using it without permission or compensation. If that’s done often enough by enough people, sooner or later the people who actually make the stuff will say, “You know what? Fuck this. I can’t pay my mortgage or feed my kids. I’m going to stop this writing nonsense and become a Starbucks barrista.”
In addition to the “theft” angle, it always boggles my mind how someone can pass off someone else’s work as theirs, and not feel like a complete fraud inside.
munchkin wrangler ipad
So far, I’ve resisted the siren song of the iPad. I’m holding out for iPad 2.0, which–if it follows the rest of the Apple hardware revision cycles–will have twice the capacity and 50% better battery life for the same price, plus a few new features that’ll make the 1.0 adopters all go, “Oh, come on!”
cleaning small apple bluetooth’ keyboard
It’s a flat slab of aluminum, and the keys don’t stand very high. Just wiping it down with a moist rag will do the job fine, unless you routinely eat barbecue ribs while typing emails, or get on the computer right after changing the oil in the truck.
writing novels with the alphasmart neo
The Neo is pretty much the best first draft banger-outer you can buy. It won’t distract you with the Intertubes, it forces you to write ahead instead of editing your paragraphs endlessly, and it frees you from the outlet because the batteries last a year or more of regular use.
how to run a barb wire fence
I’ve actually done that in the military. Here’s how you put up the razor wire kind: you put on some heavy-duty gloves, unfasten the coil of barbed wire, and then string it out on the ground. Don’t forget to stop every five feet to curse loudly, pull off a glove, and suck on your bloody digits. After you’re finished, take off your shredded clothes and throw them away.
did dachsunds come from rodents
As any dachshund owner will readily testify, that’s simply impossible when you consider the dachsie’s rather less than friendly disposition toward rodents. Family reunions would be bloody massacres.
sigourney weaver with a tommy gun
Sigourney Weaver doesn’t much care for guns, but even she had to resort to gun violence when it was clear that aggression therapy and anti-social behaviour orders weren’t doing a thing to keep the xenomorphs from biting into people’s skulls. The M-41A pulse rifle wielded by her character Ripley was made from a Thompson M-1 and a Remington 870 shotgun, dressed up with lots of plastic cowling.
fishers a danger to dogs
Well, yeah. You’re talking about a weasel, which pound for pound is one of the meanest and most ferocious animals on Earth. A big dog can probably hold his own against a fisher cat, but anything in the same weight class (~15 pounds) or only slightly above will be in danger of getting mauled or killed.
all s&w model 66 handguns with 2.5 inch
The Model 66 also comes with 4″, 6″, and the highly desirable 3″ barrels. If you ever see a 3″ M66 anywhere, buy it, for you will have found a righteous and rare boomstick, the gun equivalent of Excalibur.
remove desktop power supply
That’s actually fairly easy. Disconnect the power plug, open the case, and look for a box-like thingy with lots of colorful cables coming out of it. (It’s where the other end of the power cord plugs into the computer.) Follow the colorful cables down to the (usually green) main circuit board of the PC, and carefully disconnect them. Then you can undo the four screws that hold the power supply in the case from the outside, and pull the whole thing out of the case. All the connectors go into labeled spots on the motherboard, and the important ones are all keyed so you can’t connect them the wrong way. Takes about 5 minutes, and you won’t have to haul the PC over to Best Buy and let the Geek Squad guys charge you $50 for the job.
The Primos have very nice 100gsm paper that’s very fountain pen-friendly. I had a small stash of them, but sold them off because while the paper and the elastic around the book are better than the straight Moleskine clones of their standard notebook line, the soft cover didn’t work for me, and they don’t come in unlined paper, which is my preference these days.
+avatar +plot +dumb
It’s not so much that the plot is dumb, it’s that it’s insultingly preachy, and lifted wholesale from another movie to boot. Just Google “Pocahontas synopsis”, replace “John Smith” with “Jake Sully”, “Pocahontas” with “Neytiri”, make the Indians ten feet tall and blue, and put the whole thing into space.
ruger deerslayer .44 suppressed
I’ve seen pictures of one with a suppressor. Supposedly, it’s about as quiet as an air rifle while still retaining the stomp of the .44 Magnum. Inside of 200 yards, it’s enough to turn off the lights on most anything you’re likely to bump into in the woods, unless you live in Alaska and have 1,000-pound hairy neighbours with voracious appetites for salmon and hippie hikers. (I kid on that last part. The grizzly doesn’t relish the granola.) All kidding aside, the Deerslayer is simply awesome for the clandestine removal of whitetail deer who have cheated you on a drug deal.
There you go–the search term bucket has refilled a little in the last two weeks. Hope it makes your Monday more bearable, the knowledge that you once again used up all my natural resources. Now back to “work”, and don’t think I don’t know exactly that you’ll be checking Facebook and playing Solitaire until right about five minutes before lunchtime…
