What is wrong with this picture?

...And I bet the guy was tweeting about the crappy battery the whole time...

Just a little something to remember

Not that a lot of you are out playing on diesel engins without a mechanic on call-out.

But if you ever need to change a fuel filter and don't have a wrench, a tie-down strap would work, too.

Expecting to see rioting in three...two...

On-....! Oh! Wait!
That was the Israeli Embassy, not some Islamic mosque they sent the pig heads to.

Ok, nothing to see here. Nothing will happen.
No riots
No charges.
No anti-muslim persicution (or whatever they claim).

Mom dogs VS cat moms

THIS is What Makes Dogs and Cats so Different.  Don't Miss the Ending!  Hilarious! from iluvanimals on GodTube.


Hmmmm..........
I guess "Someone" is trying to tell us something when an embed from a G0D site won't render on  the g00gle area.....

Del Rio, TX

Seems to be an awful busy little town.

Don't know if it's from the oil patch, drug runners or the .GOV supplies needed to PROTECT YOUR SECURITY- Citizen. Now shut-up about overbearing government and BTW Suzanne has the bad hind of herpes, not that we'd have any way of knowing that....

Any questions?
Yeah, I didn't think so, because you're real people who don't really give a sh1t about dancing monkeys.

An interaction at Wally-world today

The cashier asked the guy in front (think Jack Elam at about 6'8") if he wanted a bag for the blanket and two pillows-
HE said "No thank you, I can handle them."
Her-"Are you sure, they're kind of bulky?"
HE "No, really it's ok."
Her- "But..."

ME- "He doesn't want to choke any fish."
Him" BWahahaha..."
Her- "Huh? He's not buying fish..???"
HE (explaining bags blowing into streams and greenies trying to ban them)
Her- "Oh, now I get it. nobody ever explained why plastic was bad.... I feel kinda dumb right now."

I am Chewbacca

Which Star Wars character are you?

A quonset hut could work, too

Since straw bales are out of the question (there aren't going to be any available till after harvest season).

 We could go with Penta treated old power poles in either cabin or timber frame option.
This one at CL would really be within the budget. Plus i wouldn't have to worry about load carrying supports.

Of course we have to see what kind of room we have under the oak trees first, and that'll have to wait until the tenant is out at the end of the month.

One more good thing about the land

I won't be trapped into just one way to work.
Or be trapped behind one clueless fuck in the hammer lane pacing the guy texting in the right lane...both going 50 in a 70 zone.

For 25 farging miles.

I have at least three different routes to and from work as holidays and time require.

Am I being to picky here?

The only thing I see wrong about this video-
Is the stupid, ugly Aquaflage suits they're making the crew wear.

At least let them wear something comfortable nautical, like Dungarees or even a working undress set of blues.

That Chris Christie thing is sure trying to grow legs, isn't it?

It's almost like he let four people die in an American consulate- or something.

Oh, wait- that's what these same  people tried to cover up- my bad.

The realtor go back to us

The reason it took so long was that it's an estate sale and all the family had to agree on our offer- $112k and mineral rights, with them paying the survey.

It doesn't look like much until you're there. Mrs Trainwereck wasn't impressed until she actually saw it.

Project Daniel Boone

As a reward for getting the land.

It's a Traditions .50 cal Kentucky rifle kit.
The implements of destruction-

Trigger group and firing assy. trimmed and fitted-

Ewwww... the back stock doesn't match up with the fore-stock very well-

MUCH better.
Now on to finish sanding, steel wool and stain.


...Oh and brine for the barrel

Everything old is new again

And this time, they're purposing chain shot (which never was good as anti-personnel rounds) as self defense rounds.

Because somehow splitting a light pistol round into three and dragging a net through the air makes it more of a man-stopper than a hollow point...or something.

Just watch how effective it is against a paper target without any backing;



I guess it's a lot more effective than throwing three fishing weights tied together...but I could do the same damage to the target.

This was originally up at Brocks, but I decided not to trash-up his comments with my take on this scam.

You'll notice that not one video shows the string-shot hitting ballistic gel. Probably because it has the same effectiveness as birdshot.

Here is the spokes-flac's reply when he asked about it:
"...We had them tested by a 3rd party industry leader and
confirmed ~12 to 14" penetrations on the fragments. Keep in mind that we are
not asking you to fully change your personal protection plan, WE recommend a
Smart Stack by loading your first 2 rounds as MI then your favorite Slug
then alternate your mag stack to insure high hit and the comfort of your
favorite slug. I know that our rounds will do the job and that we need to
prove it to you, so we are working on that.
"

So- I was going to ask if you used the shottie at 5 feet, but that doesn't even shoot a full slug ( it's more like a sabot ) to get that 12-14" penetration. Instead of a 2" self defense snubbie.
I'll sit back to see how good it is when all the cool kids are blogging about this new-and-improved super-killer bullet and the Dems in congress want to ban it.

Spot the non-Liberal

Or- Which is the RINO and which is the independent?

Now we're in a bidding war..

So, we're looking for land SE of Seguin (which is ESE of San Antonio) which is near the Eagle-ford oil patch.
Every property we've looked at with a well and septic has already been bought.
We found a propert (16 acres, septic and a questionable well with a stock tank) for an asking price of $125k. Our initial offer was $92K, the countered with $112K.

we were going to counter offer with $105, but found out that someone else has put a bid in without even seeing the land....

So we took the $112 and are waiting to see who gets to the owners first.

Of course the NSA is spying on congress

How else do you think they'd get the dirt to blackmail you into approving anything they wanted?

That's awful stupid for a Communist to ask a huge, secretive intelligence organization if it's spying on their leaders- that's what YOU want Bernie Sanders it's a feature of communism, not a bug.

AND- you got the same non-answer anyone with two brain cells would expect.

Not to jinx anything

But hope nobody get an offer in first.

We'll be putting one in Monday, and the tenant says there's a 10 pointer that disappears around deer season.

FED-UPS is just covering themselves with glory

I bought a set of bedrail covers and a set of stake pocket tie-downs on the same Christmas night.
Dec. 25 and Pay-pal went through on both of them - no problem.

I got the tie-downs Saturday- the 28th.
I got the tracking # for the bedrails on Dec. 26, but nothing on it- now I know why....

Because they didn't BOTHER to pick them up until Monday- Dec 30.
So much for my promised delivery date of Dec 31 at the latest, huh?
I'm just glad I didn't have to pay for shipping.......

UPDATE-
They were there this Saturday morning.
Almost 10 days after I ordered them with NO communication from anyone that they'd be late.
