It's probably better not to ask. Weerd, I thought of you, buddy. I know, it's not Dub. But I still thought of you.

It just hatched.... You are going to lurve it !
Folks that I work with occasionally (Four women and two guys, both retired Marines) are getting ready to go into the buffet, one of the ladies opens the door, another lady starts through, only to be shoved aside by "middle eastern" male #1. She turns around and slaps him, he draws back to hit her starts the punch, and one of the retired Marines promptly face plants him into the glass by the door (looks like broken nose).Hie thee forth, read the whole thing, and chuckle.
Iranian navy vessels received a distress signal from the U.S. cargo ship Maersk Texas during patrols. The forces announced their willingness to help. As they closed in on the American cargo ship, the pirates scattered. The U.S. ship crew thanked the Iranian naval force and continued on its way, state media reported.The clowns in DC and Tehran can't get their shit together - but a distress call on the open ocean doesn't give a shit what flag you're flying. Good on the Iranian Navy.
I don't live in Stafford, but I spend a lot of time there, and the amount of panhandlers and homeless camps here and in surrounding counties [...] has spiked dramatically. The cops have been arresting them right and left, and my guess is because they've been getting more aggressive, but I can't confirm that.I haven't looked at hard numbers - the UCR is out there for someone who wants to do the crunching - but from where I sit, violent crimes (robbery in particular, but also assault and assaults labeled as harassment*), property crimes (larcenies, burglaries, and criminal mischief), and fraud (especially counterfeiting) have been steadily increasing over the last few years.
Berkeley Police Chief Michael Meehan, already under fire for sending an officer to a reporter's house after midnight, ordered police - some on overtime - to look for his teenage son's stolen cell phone in Oakland, authorities said Monday.
[A]t its height [the search] involved as many as 10 officers. Kusmiss said four detectives were paid overtime for two hours each.
AD: It isn't a "line of work" for me. It's who I am.
Commenter: If you are so wrapped up in what you do that it defines who you are--what happens if you get fired? What happens if you injure your back and can't be a paramedic anymore?
Nearly 4 million of those calls were made to the city's emergency call centers in 2010 [...] That's more than one-third of some 11 million emergency calls made in New York [City] each year[.]They note that each call takes about 19 seconds. That sounds about right; we call these "butt dials", and each one takes a second or two to answer, and then enough time listening to the open line to be confident that there isn't a valid emergency. How long we listen varies, but in the 15-18 second range is about right. That background noise - is that a loud party, or someone screaming for help? The loud banging - are we listening to a construction site, or a shooting?
[I]t'd sure be nice to have an AR-15 with an adjustable stock so that I wouldn't have to swap out my stock every time I wanted someone smaller than me to be able to comfortably shoot my rifle.Amen. Like many of us, I'm a relatively tall dude. 6'0 or 6'1, depending on how much I'm slouching that day. I have correspondingly long arms. An A2 stock on an AR actually fits me pretty well, as does a standard-length stock on a Remington shotgun. The stock on my Mossberg feels a hair short, but it's tolerable.
The BH above the trigger on the left side of your frame shows your pistol was used by the Austrian Bundesheer (Austrian Federal Army) after the war. Your left grip is numbered on the inside, which dates it to a 1940 or early 1941 Walther made pistol. The coarse grooved hammer dates from late in the war. Austrian marked pistols usually show some refurbishment, so replacement parts are more or less normal. The postwar Austrian holster is correct for this pistol.
As a Fertility Specialist for Pachyderms, this was exactly what we needed to help rebuild elephant populations all over sub-saharan africa. It's not all just Medications and IVF treatments. Some times you need a loudspeaker, a Barry White CD and a 55 Gallon drum of Lube.
