  1. Actually..I do feel pretty bad ..In any case If I had been there and watched him shoot a man with his rifle ..I think that it's probably 75-25 that I would have shot the kid if he didn't instantly comply..esp. if he turned towards me..No video..no hours of analysis....no goofy judges and lawyers...nothing but a kid?..with a rifle..that he just used to drop someone..with me possibly next...well that kid was found not guilty of anything...makes me feel kind of dumb..eh? I apologize for the digression..
  2. Pretty cool....a great analysis if you had a half hour to sort it out....
  3. Ya took too long there Spike Buddy...the kid ran past and just shot another dude...what are your thoughts..ya only got a few seconds if that...Did he shoot in self defense? Was the second victim trying to defend himself ? In any case ya REALLY got to hurry up 'cause the kid just blew the bicep off ANOTHER victim...was it self defense? By who? quick now...Jeeze Spike Buddy...You got THREE victims and still haven't made a decision...A jury of 12 of your peers may be analyzing YOUR action..or lack of ..soon enough..
  4. Let's say you are a patrolman and some rigged up dude comes running down the street in a riot..pointing and aiming and just shot someone...do you shoot the dude who ..by God.. looks like a kid? Your decision time is already up...
  5. You may get a chance to find out...The grade skool where my wife works has at least two boys showing up in drag...with one "pink BOa"?..(i don't want to know )..The principle and gym teacher are..."that way". It's all the rage..coming to a recruiter near you...
  6. Yeah dammit...that's what B-29's are for...now git...
  7. Because guys in the Guard and Reserve usually have real jobs and can tell the big military to naff off as needed..Not unheard of for a say .. staff sergeant to personally know and maybe went to High School with a Senator or Congress critter and those associations can work better than four stars and the big military knows it.. oop's goblins arrive....chow....
  8. I hear that all the dumps in Angeles City are long closed...does that affect the selection of the little woman? Or aren't you choosy?
  9. Not enough employees in the system to make the money to buy the stuff to keep the prices on the stuff to hold the margins and away we go...Time will tell.....Last week I worked with a new grad who told me that "a lot" of his fellow grads in this particular program are taking big salary hits that they never expected...My brother works in lumber distribution..but has a CDL ..they are so short of truck drivers..(see get paid...spend....margins above..) that they wanted to pull him out of his position to drive a semi....'cause he's the only one who can back a truck without crashing into the dock. Does not seem like the set up for inflation...A couple of months ago I paid 85 bucks for an 8 foot 4x4 and a piece of 4x4 wafer board because of a lumber shortage....does that add to the profit line?..Or slam down demand?....I guess we shall see...
  10. Funny you should mention that...My stock guy claims that he sees inflation and a bit of a pull back...I see deflation and a full blown recession.........employers near where the Afghans are camped out should be banging down the CO's door to get at these potential employees..they are gonna need 'em...As to being jumped by camera dudes.. If you anticipate such a thing..carry a small can of red spray paint and coat the lens..
  11. Volunteering to be the non-treated control subjects for a deadly disease is pretty much un-heard of. The sociological, political etc. research will be as fascinating as the medical. For example..will those who have refused a vaccine hold tough to the bitter end? Have regrets? Sail on through? Actually the sky is the limit when studying this event..The PHd's will fly like...I know...re-engined Buffs...
  12. Many moons ago the ATC boyz thought that they had Ronnie Raygun by the cojones and they went on strike..the controller who lived next door at the time ended up running a muffler shop. A lot of laid off pilots got jobs with ATC in various roles like clearance delivery..ground control etc. that they could handle i.e. not approach to KORD for example. Those jobs and alert lines kept them going. It was a goat rope but they (the controllers) all got the bootaroo so best be careful. A lot of pilots headed off active duty? That a rumor or not?
  13. It's starting to appear that your genetic profile is going to be the "expert" on how to deal with a medical emergency like this .. If an organism like C-19 appears again, let it run wild in the population, offer a vaccine, and see what happens. Those that survive will pass on protective genetics for the next time, esp. if (when) it changes shape and needs modified vaccine. For sure this will be the science experiment from hell. But with an incredible amount of medical (and sociological) knowledge gained. As usual, I feel bad for the medics..I got a flu shot and a bug shot today and the nurse said that they are worn out. It could have been prevented. Now I'm going to get lectured by my pal who is convinced that I got a microchip.
  14. The range master..where else?? They booted me out of the zoo..
  15. Creeping around in the dark with some stupid pistol as your defense is not too comforting...And it took only a couple of times for me to wake up with a roscoe pointed at the door to get mine locked up. I will give you this..a 12 gauge def. increases the comfort level....You do know that if LEO rolls up and you have a weapon in your hand..you become the enemy until proven otherwise...you also become a distraction from more pressing concerns..I would concede that if you insist on toting a pistol you at least have a "shoot don't shoot" training event every few years.....If you have little kids..lock 'em up...
  16. I sometimes wonder how many gun toting types have ever been in a situation to realize how little comfort carrying a gun gives you (or at least me)..That's why I have stopped recommending Horse dewormer and suggested using Pig tranquilizer..it works just as well for the bug (not at all) AND cools off any idea of invading the Capitol..or shooting someone..
  17. Ya haven't lived til an outboard water pump on a hot day with a maxed out KC (say...#5 in a six ship... mired in a haze of black smoke from twenty four lead water burners)..shucks it's nutz... Then of course..sometimes ya didn't..
  18. As far as what planes end up where..it strikes me as a little free style for now. We have an F-16 unit down the way pretty much sure that they are swapping to the F-35. I wonder how solid that swap is. The maintenance guys mention that the paint shop alone for various reasons is a major operation. Is F-35 the fighter version of the KC-46 ?
  19. Reminds me of when states started making seat belt use mandatory..I can still hear it..."I got my rights" "seat belts can kill you" "blah de blah" ..This from guyz who were forced to wear a seat belt and shoulder harness from release to set...in a vehicle with essentially a zero chance of crashing....but drove on out the gate in a vehicle where safe travel is questionable at best...often with a brewski or three on board.. This bug is turning into the research project from hell..which will be helpful down the line..I guess..pray for the medics...
  20. Reminds me of the fellow who visited his sawbones concerning "certain complaints and embarrassing symptoms"...The doc asks..."well sir, do you have a discharge?" and the fellow answers "Yes Doctor...honorable"
  21. They can bring 'em up to date on the bugshot at out processing...The airlines will get 'em anyway....As far as Guard pilots..that's what happened many moons ago when the sandbox fired up...No one cared..
  22. Now is too late to argue about numbers and masks and vaccines etc...might as well let it run it's course and see what happens..I was talking with a medical type today ( on the phone)who is a hard core vaccine denier..religious I think..that's fine....I will never work near him and would suggest that he be fired. His techs are terrified. If the bug manages to mutate past the present vaccine..then......a learning experience I guess. A riddle....On a light note I had occasion today on a looong drive to drive past the environs of P.P. and N.P. and M.H. pleasant memories of past adventures...
  23. We shall see..If it happens Mother N. will be up with a major human house cleaning...The poor medical dudes and dudettes are getting kicked in the gonnies/gonettes as it is now..
  24. That's how it went with me..never dawned on me that I might have gotten -19 until weeks later when I started hearing about it....and never did get the antibody test...so who knows...If I DID have the real thing I might have spread it globally for weeks. In any case a few months in.. the wife and I got the bugshot...I was just reading the local paper about 60ish years ago when literally everyone raced down to get the Polio vaccine..You had to be deep into devil worship or REALLY slow to pass up that one. Now the local farm supply places are selling horse de-wormer..it's the latest on the interweb...Would you fly with a dude/dudette who rocks with Ivermectin?! We had a squadron reactionary or three..but NOTHING like this...
