Toto, I Don't Think We're In Kansas Anymore

Richard Gere faces prosecution in India for kissing an Indian actress in public. I wonder if Justices Kennedy and Breyer, who just love using the laws of other nations to interpret our Constitution when it suits their agenda, will apply India's law to the next obscenity case they hear. Actually, I think it's hilarious and hopefully Richard Gere's celebrity status will make some more people think how great it is to be in America.
I also wonder what India would do to this professor of English at Virginia Tech.

Children Of Men: Stupidest Movie Ever Made

My wife is watching Children Of Men. From what I have caught, walking by the TV, the premise is that humans have become totally infertile and the heroine is a homeless woman who somehow got pregnant but now needs to prevent the government from finding the mystery of her fecundity. Hollywood bullshit -- better for the human race to die out rather than violate somebody's "individual" rights.

Somehow I got into the sights of National Paper and Ink which is nothing more than a racket, possibly based in Quebec, possibly run by some Greek gypsy named “Gus” and his girlfriend. Their racket is to send out phony invoices for never ordered or furnished office paper and ink cartridges and to follow up with harassing phone calls. I am getting about five calls a day from the “girlfriend”. She has a very thick skin. She won’t take “Fuck you, there ain’t no money for you here, bitch” for an answer. Hell, I didn’t even get an invoice let alone the “supplies”. My “invoice” amount according to her is $294.00, which is less than the $500.00 jurisdictional amount of RICO the last time I checked. It’s annoying but I get to practice my profanity in the event that I ever enter a cussing contest. My Caller ID captured the number (514) 904-1923.

Nazi-killing Air Gun

From Dr. Beeman who has a really cool web page.
"Made in the 1940s during WW2, this gun doesn't look like a Girandoni, but examination shows that it clearly was built by someone familiar with the Girandoni repeating airgun system. Purchased in Europe, the story is that this gun was built somewhere in occupied Europe by a partisan bicycle maker during the Nazi occupation in WW2 . (Originally we suspected that the maker was in Austria but an Austrian friend pointed out that there really wasn't any resistance movement in Austria - most Austrians still considered Germany and Austria as a single unit, as it had been in the past, and actually welcomed the Nazi troops when they occupied the country, virtually without force.) The repeating magazine is spring fed and on the left side of the barrel, for the convenient use of a right handed shooter. The gun was charged with the accompanying bicycle type pump. Smoothbore, as would be expected, but firing a 11 3/4 mm lead ball (.463" caliber) (the very same caliber as the original Girandoni Austrian military repeating air rifles!), this would have been a fearsome weapon against sentries, drivers, military leaders, etc. at ranges up to perhaps 100 yards. To a freedom fighter, the lower discharge sound and the lack of flash or smoke would have been huge values. And it did not need powder, primers, or bullets - only easily cast lead or soft-metal balls! The builder surely drew his inspiration from a museum, or even just a book, which displayed a Girandoni system airgun. The excellent quality reflects the experience of a perfectionist bicycle maker with considerable time on his hands - consistent with such a craftsman in an occupied area.
Note that this gun has a spring fed magazine, rather than the gravity fed magazine of the original Girandoni military air rifle. While a gravity feed mechanism might be simpler, and even more dependable, the spring fed magazine has great advantages for the purposes of this gun. It is more suited for operation from a vehicle or firing slot where it would be impractical to tip up the rifle for loading and it allows firing with minimal motion at the firing point - very important to a sniper.
Why would a modern sniper want a functional version of an ancient airgun when automatic weapons were as close as the first German soldier that could be waylaid? The answer dramatically comes from the above notes and the fact that anAmerican maker is now doing a small, but excellent, business supplying coalition troops in the near East with high power 9mm repeating PCP air rifles, complete with silencers and nightsights. Unlike a firearm, such a weapon, without sound, flash, or smoke, does not attract return fire - esp. in reduced light situations - the deadly projectile just seems to come from no-where!
Basic specs: A husky 12.2 lbs., 45" overall, glare-free, w/ almost camo anodized type finish."

I Hate Change

I am very appreciative of the free blog hosting from Blogger. I would never have experimented with blogging otherwise. But I hate having to switch to a new account, a new password and a new version at eight o'clock this evening.

If I Could Only Play Like This


Best Gay Joke Ever

Two gay guys are in a large passenger plane flying across the Pacific. In the middle of the flight, one turns and tells his partner: "Let's have sex. Right here and now." His partner says: "Are you crazy? In front of all these people?" The first gay guy says: "Don't worry. They're all asleep. Here, see for yourself." He leans out into the aisle and yells: "Excuse me, can anybody let me have a piece of gum?" There's no answer or any kind of interest. His partner is convinced and they have sex right then and there.
The plane lands and as the passengers are disembarking there is a stewardess by the exit asking everyone if they had a good flight. One man says, "The flight was fine but I have a horrible headache". The stewardess says: "Oh you poor thing, why didn't you ask for some aspirin?" And the man says: "Are you kidding? I saw what happened to that poor guy who asked for a piece of gum."

Wonkette = Disgusting Creep

As beautifully expounded by Ace of Spades. If you see me calling someone a Wonkette with a link to this post that's exactly what I'll be trying to say.

It's Always Fair Weather When Old Foggies Get Together

Except that the old foggies San Fran Nan is shmoozing up to almost without doubt were participants in the Hama massacre. I can taste their contempt for her and for a people who would make her third in line for the Presidency.

From Beldar who also has the link to a much higher resolution photo. The guy in the middle looks to be asleep or might just be trying not to laugh out loud at the fag hag.

UPDATE: It gets worse.

UPDATE II: I did say "contempt", didn't I?
