does this qualify as gunporn? eye candy?  gunporn eyecandy? weird inventions then.

Have to be gone in about 40 minutes, just happen to see this and it’s a fun must post.
I haven’t a clue why anyone would want this. But I do. I just don’t know why yet.  I’ll wait for Drew and others to tell me. I know there’s a perfectly good reason. I just can’t think of one. Yet.

Take a look.

Wake up with a bang… with the battle-ready coffee mug you can add a laser sight to

Last updated at 5:24 PM on 27th February 2012

Staying awake during commando surveillance operations has never been easier – thanks to a mug that comes with three military-spec scope rails.

The Battle Mug, made by U.S firm OpticsPlanet, is clearly the meanest looking mug on the planet, especially when it’s carrying its full complement of hardware.

Made from a block of aluminium, the Battle Mug can hold over a pint of your favourite frothy beverage.


He attaches a night vision unit to it, three different laser dots, a bottle opener, two carry handles with night sights – and a bipod for standing it up on.

Each $250 (£160) mug is custom-engraved with its own unique serial number, includes a removable AR15 carry handle – and can be carried safely through customs, because it’s not actually capable of firing bullets.

MailOnline has contacted OpticsPlanet to find out if it can be converted to a gun.

Don’t Fire Your Stern Guns!

I searched Project Gutenberg for some of Aristotle’s works to load onto my iPad. The search results also returned something with the intriguing title of Early English Meals and Manners. (Why this showed up with the search term Aristotle escapes me.) Of course, I had to download that too.

It’s full of all kinds of interesting and useful admonitions. Like:

General Directions for Behaviour.
Don’t claw your back as if after a flea; or your head, as if after a louse.
See that your eyes are not blinking and watery.
Don’t pick your nose, or let it drop, or blow it too loud, or twist your neck.
Don’t claw your cods, rub your hands, pick your ears, retch, or spit too far.
Don’t tell lies, or squirt with your mouth, gape, pout, or put your tongue in a dish to pick dust out.
Don’t cough, hiccup, or belch, straddle your legs, or scrub your body.
Don’t pick your teeth, cast stinking breath on your lord, fire your stern guns, or expose your codware before your master.

This is still surprisingly good advice today! Though I’m not sure how far is too far when spitting. And apparently you can expose your codware to anyone else but your master. And certainly, don’t fire your stern guns, unless you can do so silently

There Goes The Tourist Money

Guess we won’t be taking that luxury cruise down to Mexico after all. Not that we’d do such a foolish thing. But I sort of get the feeling nobody else will be either. The Mexicali Blues Cruise is one carnival we can do without.

Bus Full of Cruise Ship Passengers Robbed In Mexico

Hooded bandits robbed 22 Carnival Splendor cruise ship passengers at gunpoint as they traveled on a bus near Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, several days into a cruise that left from Long Beach, Calif., the Los Angeles Times reported Sunday.

The tourists, who departed California on Feb. 19 and returned Sunday, were traveling on a bus after going on a nature hike Friday when the bandits struck near the Mexican port city, according to local media reports.


The company has suspended the nature trail tour from its list of activities for cruise passenger.

Hooded gunmen intercepted the tourists’ bus about 5 p.m. Thursday as it returned from the pueblo of El Nogalito, known for its trail through the jungle, according to the Mexican newspapers El Norte and La Jornada. The gunmen took cameras, money, watches and other valuables before fleeing into the countryside, the papers said.


The Carnival Splendor ship generally carries more than 3,000 passengers and operates year-round weeklong cruises from Long Beach.

As of last fall, one cruise line had decided to suspend stops in Puerto Vallarta, a popular port of call, because of the country’s ongoing drug war. That decision was made by Santa Clarita-based Princess Cruises, which, like Carnival Cruise Lines, is a unit of Carnival Corp.

Carnival itself did not cancel stops on its namesake cruise line in Puerto Vallarta, and Princess Cruises was set to resume visits to Puerto Vallarta this month.

A port north of Puerto Vallarta has also experienced problems. After a February 2011 shooting left two dead in a hotel parking lot in the tourist area of Mazatlan, several cruise lines began canceling stops, including Carnival Cruise Lines.

Yup, it’s starting alright ...

Regular voyages to the Mexican Riviera, long a mainstay of San Diego’s cruise ship business, are likely to end by the fall of 2012 with the decision by Holland America to move one of its key liners to Australia.

The cruise line’s 1,926-passenger Oosterdam and the 2,500-passenger Carnival Spirit are the only two vessels that currently head to the Mexican Riviera on a regular basis, and both are now scheduled to leave San Diego after April of 2012. The Spirit as well will be relocated to Australia.


The redeployment of the Oosterdam, which makes seven-day cruises to Mexico, marks the third ship to leave San Diego waters in the wake of a prolonged economic downturn and rising violence in Mexico.

Lawless? Busted!

Occupy This Jail Cell:

‘Xena’ actress Lucy Lawless arrested

GreenPeace plan to take over drill ship scuttled


M/V Noble Discoverer

“Xena: Warrior Princess” star turned eco-champion Lucy Lawless and her fellow Greenpeace protesters were charged with burglary Monday after illegally occupying a Shell oil exploration ship, reported.

Police boarded the Arctic-bound ship in New Zealand’s Taranaki port and climbed its drilling derrick on Monday morning to speak with the New Zealander actress and five other protesters, then arrested them.

A police spokeswoman told Dow Jones Newswires earlier, ”The protesters are all under arrest. They are making their own way back down the tower, which will take some time. Once they are on the ground they will be taken into our custody and decisions will be made in relation to charges.”

The activists boarded the Noble Discover on Friday morning while it was berthed at Taranaki. They climbed its 174ft (53m) drilling derrick and hung banners as they remained aloft despite windy conditions.

When I first saw this article, I thought, “Gee, don’t they teach geography anymore? The ship is in New Zealand, m’kay? Wouldn’t it be the friggin’ antarctic that they’d be journeying too, since it’s right the heck there?? But a tiny bit of research showed that I was wrong. The plan really is to take this ship on a 6500 nautical mile journey (7500 land miles) pretty much due north to the Alaskan coast at the other end of the earth. Bet that’s going to be one slow and really boring (oil drill pun, hur hur) cruise. Two weeks of empty ocean, a weekend in Hawaii, two more weeks of empty ocean, then 6 months of hard work in the land of never ending ice and cold. Joy!

Lawless and the other activists have [had] “occupied” the drillship to prevent it from departing on a “6,000 nautical mile journey from New Zealand to the remote Arctic to start an exploratory oil drilling program that threatens to devastate the Alaskan coastline,”

Oh those bad oil men and their evil drill ships, out to rape the earth. They hate all life, they don’t care about the environment, and they just want the oil money. Yeah. Sure. You want to know just how heavy handed, evil and irresponsible the drilling exploration process is? They even have to develop plans to keep sea birds from hitting the derrick, detailed right down to the kind of bird and what color paint they use. Oh, and they have a another plan for protecting the whales, seals, and polar bears from excessively loud noises. Seriously. They’re so evil that they have a plan to keep any local critters from getting an earache. All filed, and approved by FOUR government agencies concerned with animal welfare. Four. Sounds like the height of irresponsible greed to me, by gosh.

Greenpeace. Lawless idiots. Not even useful ones.

B-52 Tantrum Time

7 US troops wounded in Afghanistan, as protests against Koran burnings continue

Yesterday it was “Two US officers killed deep inside secure compound by turncoat insiders”.

We’ve seen for years that even the rumor of a koran being mistreated is enough to set off murderous rage across the world, and yet we still cotton to it. Fuck that. Time to bring the hammer down.

Demonstrators protesting against the burnings of Korans at a U.S. base in Afghanistan tossed grenades at an American base Sunday in a sixth consecutive day of violence that left seven US troops wounded and two Afghans dead.

Afghan authorities also identified and launched a manhunt for a suspect in the killing of two U.S military advisers—a lieutenant colonel and a major— inside an Afghan ministry on Saturday.

The attacks were the latest in six days of violence across the country by Afghans furious at the way some Korans at an American base outside of Kabul were disposed of in a burn pit.

The Koran burning incident has swiftly spiraled out of control leaving dozens of people dead, including four U.S. troops killed by their Afghan counterparts, in a sign of the tenuous nature of the relationship between Afghanistan and the U.S.

Fuck Afghanistan, Fuck Pakistan, Fuck Syria, Fuck them all. Indiscriminately carpet bomb the whole damn place until there aren’t two mud bricks left stuck together, then release the poison gas and the napalm. Bring our troops home and just say to hell with all of it.

I hate to say it, but Ron Paul’s idea of foreign policy is looking better every day. Isolationist. But mixed with unhinged levels of Draconian vengeance first. We can’t make these animals behave by bringing the carrot, so bring the stick. A big, big stick. And use it. Severely.

The part of this latest koran bullshit that is getting no press, and is drawing no local ire whatsoever, is that captured terrorists were writing in the books to pass secret messages to each other. They were desecrating the holy koran!!!!!11111!!! And that’s just peachy. But our efforts to cleanse such desecration draw a thousand times worse a reaction. So let’s give it back, ten thousand times worse. Let’s do to Afghanistan what we should have done to Fallujah under Bush, what we should have done to Mogadishu under Clinton. Blast it to splinters, then burn it down, salt the ground, and leave.

And the next time some BS outrage goes off over some dumbshit book being burned, or flushed, or even touched by evil infidels like us, we pick a major islamic city at random, and bomb it to rubble. 15 or 20 cities later, perhaps they’ll get the message. If not, well, we have plenty of bombs.

Unhinged reprisal reactions are just fine for our enemies to do, anywhere in the world, to the best of their abilities. Therefore it’s fine for us to react the same way, and the best of our abilities eclipses shit that they can’t even dream of in their worst nightmares. Gee, too fucking bad.

Bring it on. The way to win the war on terrorism is to execute acts of terror back at such levels that our enemies are too afraid to act the next time. That’s how you win their war: their way.

detained at airport for veil comment at security gate for possible offense to the usual creeps

It’s now come to this. What a sorry freekin thing to happen. It’s getting so that every little comment or joke no matter how mild, can be twisted into whatever the listener decides it is.
This is petty beyond belief, but it’s what happens every day when you live in a pc dictatorship.  I do not see it getting better in my lifetime. Unfortunately.

It has been argued for years that a confession under torture or any kind of duress should not be accepted, because a person might say whatever was expected to make the discomfort go away.
Then why do pin heads in authority demand apologies under threats. Surely they must have enough brains, even tho it doesn’t take much, to know that a forced apology is meaningless. 

It just plain pisses me off no end. 


Detained and branded racist for innocent burqa joke at airport security

By Jason Lewis, Investigations Editor

As David Jones arrived at the security gates at Gatwick airport, he was looking forward to getting through swiftly so he could enjoy lunch with his daughters before their flight.


Placing his belongings, including a scarf, into a tray to pass through the X-ray scanner he spotted a Muslim woman in hijab pass through the area without showing her face.

In a light-hearted aside to a security official who had been assisting him, he said: “If I was wearing this scarf over my face, I wonder what would happen.”
The quip proved to be a mistake. After passing through the gates, he was confronted by staff and accused of racism.
As his daughters, who had passed through security, waited in the departure lounge wondering where he was, he was subjected to a one hour stand-off as officials tried to force him to apologise.

Mr Jones, 67, who is the creator of the popular children’s character Fireman Sam, said: “Something like George Orwell’s 1984 now seems to have arrived in Gatwick airport.
“I feel that my rights as an individual have been violated. What I underwent amounts to intimidation and detention. I was humiliated and degraded in full public view.


“I am a 67-year-old pensioner and have lived my life within the law. I do not have even one point on my driving licence.”
He said that when he made his initial remark the security guard had appeared to agree with him, saying: “I know what you mean, but we have our rules, and you aren’t allowed to say that.”

As he went through the metal detecting arch, his artificial hip set off the alarm, prompting a full search from a guard. It was after this, and as he prepared to rejoin his two grown-up daughters, that he was confronted by another guard who said he was being detained because he had made an offensive remark.

“I repeated to her what I had said and told her that I had said nothing racist,” he said. “She took my passport and boarding pass and I was then escorted back through the security zone into the outer area. Here the female security guard proceeded to question me further, inferring many things that I had not said.

“It was impossible to get her to listen to reason. We were then joined by a second female security guard who stated that she was Muslim and was deeply distressed by my comment.

“I again stated that I had not made a racist remark but purely an observation that we were in a maximum security situation being searched thoroughly whilst a woman with her face covered walked through. I made no reference to race or religion. I did not swear or raise my voice.”
According to Mr Jones, who was due to board a British Airways flight to Portugal, where he now lives and runs a restaurant on the Algarve, the British Airways duty manager was then called in and sided with the security staff.

He continued: “I had now been detained for some time and my daughters were worried, calling me on my phone asking what was happening. We were going around in circles. I maintained that I had said nothing offensive and the security guard was continuing to accuse me. This had taken about 15-20 minutes and looked as though it was not going to be resolved.

“I asked the security guard if she was going to charge me to which she said no but I could not leave until I had apologised to the Muslim guard.
“At this point I asked for the attendance of a police officer. After some time he arrived but it was also plainly evident that he was keeping to the politically correct code. I told him that if there was a case then he should arrest me.

“I was told that we now live in a different time and some things are not to be said. They decided again that I would only be allowed to continue on my journey if I were to apologise to the Muslim guard. My reply was that as I had not made a racist remark it would be impossible for me to apologise.”

Mr Jones, a former member of the Household Cavalry and retired fireman, added: “I felt that I made a logical observation. That while everyone was being subjected to an invasive search it was illogical that someone should be let through with their face covered. I am not opposed to having this level of security but it must be equal for all.”

Eventually, Mr Jones said, the BA manager suggested that he should agree that what he had said “could” be considered offensive by a Muslim guard.
With his flight departure time now fast approaching Mr Jones agreed to the compromise. Escorted by the police officer, he was taken through security where he was again subjected to a full search after his hip replacement set off the metal detector alarms.

Mr Jones said he intended to complain formally to the Gatwick airport authorities and British Airways about the incident last Sunday.
Department for Transport rules do not prevent people covering their faces at UK airports for religious reasons.

However, all passengers must show their faces to UK Borders officials when they pass through passport control. Muslim women who wear hijabs can request that their identity is checked by a female immigration officer and they can also ask that they be taken to a private room before they remove their head wear.

A spokesman for Gatwick airport said: “The security team are examining the incident to ensure that the issue was managed in the right way.
“They are talking to the people involved to understand what the issue was and how it came to have the police involved.”

In no shape to be at a computer. not sick, but have a few aches to cope with. BUT

With an ice pack on my left neck and upper shoulder and ribs (I think it’s that) on the left that just won’t quit aching, and chair in a slight recline, I was reading one of our Sunday newspaper magazines.  LIVE, from The Daily Mail.

Not too easy keeping the small pack in place and pound a keyboard but when I saw this I just knew I couldn’t wait for Monday. It HAD to be today.

I LOVE this.  Believe it or not, there was a time, once upon a time, when I could have bought this and not missed a penny of it. That was before the tech bubble burst.  So when I see something like this it just makes my gut churn, my head spin and it’s another reminder where greed leads us. Darn. Being greedy and stupid sure has a high price tag.


The £150,000 desk that dreams it’s a Bugatti

(more then $200,000.00)


Inspired by the Bugatti Type 35 racer and equipped with a set of its blueprints, Midlands furniture-maker Luzzo Bespoke spent 3,000 hours designing this desk

To raise its height, you turn the ‘starter crank’, which drives a mechanism scaled up from old Winfield carburettor synchronisation quadrants. The drawer fronts use the same honeycomb grille as the Bugatti, and the aluminium undersides are based on the car’s oil sump, which is finned to aid cooling

The men who designed and built the Bugatti Type 35 racer of the Twenties approached their work with enthusiasm and panache.
Chaps who design desks aren’t necessarily known for that. But what if you made a desk the way Bugatti made the car?

Inspired by the Bugatti Type 35 racer and equipped with a set of its blueprints, Midlands furniture-maker Luzzo Bespoke spent 3,000 hours designing, machining, joining, riveting and polishing sheet aluminium into a workstation worth nearly as much as the car itself: a Type 35 goes for about $396,887, the desk costs $201,707

Tan leather finish (left); each desk is numbered, and the builders credited (centre); and drawers are locked with an ‘ignition key’ (right)
The racing-blue finish is actually seven layers of paint and lacquer and the tan leather writing area is based on a shade used in the car.
Oh yes, and the iMac slides out of sight at the touch of a button.

Sharia In PA

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

- Dylan Thomas, Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night


Peiper’s post yesterday about the judge in Pennsylvania who threw out an assault charge against a muslim because, as a mulsim himself, he apparently feels that mocking MoHamHead is a crime, isn’t drawing the kind of response I thought it would. Maybe Peiper writes too gently. Maybe he didn’t use quite the right quotations. I don’t know. Maybe it’s just too hard to leave a comment on this blog; I’ll try again to see what I can do about that.

My point is it that this is the most outrageous thing that has come down from a judge’s bench in quite a while, and you ought to be LIVID. What we had here was a simple case of assault, complete with a confession. Open. Shut. What we got was Sharia Law, one muzzie covering for another, denying that a crime even occurred, and a castigation of the complainant. This is no different than throwing out a rape case and reviling the woman because the way she dressed “was asking for it”. Do not stand for it. Not for a second.

What we have here is a judge who broke the rules:

A judge’s first duty is to the Constitution. Even if he’s just a little judge, a low level magistrate like this guy, Mark Martin, is, a man without a law degree.

Furthermore, now Mr. Perce is being threatened with a contempt of court charge by this same judge, for releasing an audio transcript of the trial, even though he said he had permission from the court to do so, and such a tape would be in the public domain anyway, because trial transcripts of any form are a matter of public record. WE DO NOT HAVE SECRET TRIALS IN THIS NATION.

People, it’s torches and pitchforks time. Judge Martin has to go. He has to be fired, de-benched, un-robed, and de-gaveled. I don’t care that the guy is a Repulican or if he’s a Marine veteran. The guy has no business being a judge. It isn’t even that he himself is a muslim. But at the very least, if his views on his religion are that skewed and that intense, then he ought to have recused himself. This is a gross and blatant miscarriage of justice; Strike One - you’re out!

There is no appeal for Mr. Perce, because that’s not how our judicial system works. The plaintiff doesn’t get a second shot, even when there is blatant impropriety. It’s only the accused who can appeal. But public outcry can demand an investigation, and a blackrobe who is in fact a greenrobe can get disrobed.

“That a Muslim immigrant can assault a United States citizen in defense of his religious beliefs and walk away a free man, while the victim is chastised and insulted by a Muslim judge who then blamed the victim for the crime committed against him is a horrible abrogation,” the posting reads. “ … I can promise you this, you have not heard the last of this issue. Not by a long shot.”

PLEASE read more about this case:

Watch the videos and listen to the transcript. If you think that a gross wrong has been committed and that this judge has to go, then put your feelings into polite but firm words, checking the appropriate categories on the official form, and send them in:

complaint form:

Here is the address where you mail it:

The Court of Judicial Discipline of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania
Pennsylvania Judicial Center
601 Commonwealth Avenue, Suite 5500
P.O. Box 62595, Harrisburg, PA 17106-2595
Phone: (717) 772-3771 • Fax: (717) 772-3774

It is time to draw a line in the sand. It is time to push back. Fight the cultural terrorism at all levels. Do not go gentle into that not so Good Night.

And the left and their MSM running dogs mock the red states who push for anti-Sharia laws. Eff that.

One Fine Day

Weather or Not

It’s a lovely early Spring day here in Clinton in the dark dead of Winter. The sun is shining brightly, the sky is blue with just a couple little cotton ball puffs of cloud. It seems to be about 45° out. And it’s snowing. Say What? Let me check again. Nope, it stopped. Nope, it started again. Stopped again. Now it’s snowing again. Arrggh, MAKE UP YOUR MIND, I can’t take it anymore!!! Is it Winter, Spring, or Fall??

Sorry. I guess I’m having a momentary lapse of season.

One fine day in the middle of the night
Two dead boys got up to fight
Back to back they faced each other
Drew their swords and shot one another
A deaf policeman heard the noise
And came and killed the two dead boys

I’m so confused.

Two From The K, and a PS

Yeah, Rich K is still around. Every blog needs a lurker or two, right? These links are from him. Thanks Rich!

Thick as a brick, and just as dead: fully drain the battery in your electric Tesla and it’s game over. Until you spring $40,000 for a new set of batteries!

And the Number 2 country in the world for having the most firearms in private hands ... may I have the envelope please ... and the winner is ... INDIA!!! Not that getting a gun legally there is all that easy, nor is the number of legal civilian guns anywhere close to the number in the USA, although illegal guns in India outnumber the legal ones nearly six to one. 40 million guns in total. Few can afford to buy one, new or used. But hey, in India, if you want a gun you MAKE one. Awesomeness. And the money quote is just priceless:

“All that Gandhi stuff is for tourists ... They should go off to Varanasi, see the holy cows.”

Holy cow!

Don’t worry, my good Desis. There is one way to get your license fast-tracked: have a vasectomy.

And you thought paying an arm and a leg for a decent rifle was bad!


Ok, this one is not from the K-man, but from reader PS. Sweet.

If there’s someone strange
In your neighborhood
Who Ya Gonna Call?

Don’t you get a DFC for being a double ace?

“Progress So Far… 10,” reads the banner. To date, mosques in Blackpool, Bolton, Ealing, Huddersfield, Kirkless, Luton, and York have been fought off by the Mosquebusters. A mosque in Uxbridge, stopped initially by a Mosquebusters community petition, has now landed back in court under appeal from the local Muslim community. It threatens the Mosquebusters’ otherwise flawless record.

The Mosquebusters, or the Law and Freedom Foundation as they’re officially known, are part of a new wave of anti-Islamic campaigners in England with links to more established anti-immigrant groups such as England Is Ours and Stop Islamisation of Europe. Like many of these groups, the Mosquebusters fear that traditional British culture, laws, and values will disappear with the changing face of Britain and worry that extremist interpretations of sections of the Koran urge Muslims to kill non-believers and take slaves.

Until mid-February, the Mosquebusters advertised for volunteers, under a campaign called “No More Mosques,” on the website of the ultra-nationalist English Defence League (EDL), a group that organizes anti-Islamic street marches that often decend into brawls, riots, and arrests. The EDL and other anti-Islamic groups have no problem convincing their members to parade in public yelling insults like “Muslim bombers off our streets!” and “Allah is a pedophile!,” but the Mosquebusters have a quieter, perhaps more insidious approach: In offices and city halls, they are crafting legal cases against mosque construction applications across the country. It’s a war against Islam, but one that often resembles a bureaucratic turf battle more than a clash of civilizations.

Mosquebusters no longer advertises for volunteers through the English Defence League; a disclaimer makes clear that the two groups have no official association.

Still, Boby isn’t backing down from his crusade against Britain’s creeping Islamicization. “Authorities need to know that the wind is shifting and that when it has blown away the politically correct fog, they will be left in full view,”

Surprise From Above

US Drone Kills 4 AQ in Somalia

A U.S. military drone strike that targeted an international militant in southern Somalia killed four al-Shabab fighters, officials said Friday.

A U.S. official in Washington confirmed the attack was carried out by a U.S. drone. A second U.S. official said an “international” member of al-Shabab was the target of the strike, though he said a white Kenyan reported killed in the attack was not the target.

Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity in order to share details of the classified program.

Somalia’s al-Shabab formally merged with Al Qaeda this month, a move analysts said was borne of desperation. Al-Shabab has been forced out of Mogadishu and faces military attacks on three sides. Al-Qaeda’s power has ebbed as the group has seen key leaders killed in targeted attacks.

Still, al-Shabab boasts hundreds of foreign fighters—many of whom have fighting experience in Iraq and Afghanistan—among its ranks. The group also counts several dozen Americans, many of Somali origin, among its estimated 8,000 fighters.

Officials in Somalia confirmed Friday’s attack in the Lower Shabelle region, where al-Shabab still controls wide swaths of territory. A Somali military official said a white Kenyan commander named Akram was among the four killed. The official said he could not be named for security reasons. A second Somali intelligence official confirmed the attack, but also could not be named.

The U.S. military has carried out multiple attacks inside Somalia against high-ranking militant targets in recent years.

We got drones in Somalia? Horry clap!

Even In Slovakia, This Is Too Easy

Consider this an open thread, a chance to paste in your inventiveness.

Slovakia: New Bridge To Be Named For Chuck Norris

BRATISLAVA Slovaks have been voting overwhelmingly in favor of naming a new pedestrian and cycling bridge near their capital for 1980s action film and TV star Chuck Norris.
Norris, a martial arts expert-turned film star, is known for playing tough guy characters in such classic movies as “Lone Wolf McQuade,” “Missing in Action” and “The Delta Force.”
The actor’s work has become a popular source of kitschy fun among Slovaks and a mainstay for local jokes about macho strength and invincibility.

So here’s your chance. How long is this bridge? How strong is it? What’s it made of? How do you pay the toll or raise the draw bridge? What happens if you have no money to pay the toll? WWCND?

Here’s one of mine: there is no actual Chuck Norris bridge. When trucks or trains need to cross, Chuck Norris just throws them across. Where they land perfectly, every time. Although once in a while some land in London by mistake, but it turns out that’s where the drivers really wanted to go anyway.

Closing In

We split the points Tuesday on Greed League, going 4-3 against a team that we have lots of fun hanging out with. That takes a lot of the pressure off, and we had a good time. I was a small bit over average in the two games we won, and a bit under average in the game we lost. The rest of my team was also down in that game, and our opponents rolled really well, so they beat us fair and square and I can’t blame myself for the loss. 4-3 for the night isn’t going to hurt or help us much, and we remain in 3rd place, a few games down from the guys in 2nd, and a few more from the guys who have been in 1st almost the entire season. With just 10 weeks to go, at least the 1st - 3rd gap is starting to close up a bit, while the 3rd - 4th gap gets bigger ever week. Sweet, for us. I rolled in the mid 5s for the night, 557 or something close to that.

Another 7-0 sweep for my team in Cheap League. Our blitz continues into the second month: 7-0, 7-0, 7-0, 7-0, 5-2, 7-0. Excellent teamwork in Game 3 covering for our guy who was way off, allowing us to win by just 2 pins. At this point we may have even taken 1st place, but it’s hard to say. This league allows for post-bowling with prior permission. We went into it this week being only 7 points down from the 1st place team, and they got slaughtered last night. Or so it seems; both the guys on their team, really superb bowlers, were off snowmobiling up in the Adirondacks, so they’ll do their bowling later. That’s a bit annoying, because now they know exactly how well they have to bowl to win, and those two can bowl well enough to adjust their scores to just the right amount. And next week is yet another position round, so we’ll face them again. Grrr, too many position rounds in this league. “None” is my idea; just play the round robin until the end of the season. I can accept 2 - call them the finals - or even 3, with a position round at the halfway point. But not 7. Especially not when the league only has a dozen teams. We could wind up playing the same team 10 times in 34 weeks. That’s just silly.

I threw a 638 series in Cheap League, and had 6 in a row to start Game 2 for a 248. Somebody has to tell my wife about hex etiquette. Maybe call it hex education. Sure, congratulate a bowler when he throws 3 strikes in a row for a Turkey. Or when its 4 in a row for a Ham Bone. But after that, shut up, because things start to get serious when you’ve got 5 or more strikes in a row ... especially when those are all in your opening frames, which means you could have a perfect game in the works. So don’t bring the jinx by going “Come on, get another strike! Make it 7!” Don’t even mention the run. Just say “cool”, or “awesome” or whatever. A single slow nod of the head is sufficient and cool. And for goodness’ sake, when it’s solid strikes for the first 9 frames, don’t say “just 3 more for a 300”!!!!  Trust me, there’s enough pressure inside your head to keep a streak like that going; you don’t need any extra help from the outside. Especially not when - and it’s happened to me more than once - you’re bowling a perfect game so far and your team is not pulling ahead or still seems to be losing. So yeah, I muffed it in the 7th with a 9/, having to settle for a 149 in the 5th instead of the perfect 5th frame score of 150. And it’s nobody’s fault but mine. Well, actually I blame the 7 pin, which ought to have fallen, the bastard. Just words to the wise; don’t put the hex in, even through good intentions.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
