    LOL, BC ... Following closely on the heels of self-described hack and well-known tool Glenn Thrush, so I think we're up to around two a day now ... What are the chances that Piers Morgan has his stuff together when it comes to women, girls or young boys? Google Piers Morgan + Church firearms + Big Macs or something like that to catch up, and prepare to be awestruck by the particularly deadly stupidity. :wink Spoiler alert --- It goes sideways from here: <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">So if one member of the congregation was obese, you'd combat it by giving every other member a Big Mac? <a href="https://t.co/8zi7FhPoAN">https://t.co/8zi7FhPoAN</a></p>&mdash; Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) <a href="https://twitter.com/piersmorgan/status/932602306109104129?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">November 20, 2017</a></blockquote> <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

    Those videos are embarrassing. I don't go looking for them, but they somehow appear in my line of sight every once in a while. I came across one about a month ago where the girl wasn't claiming sovereign citizenship --- she was just on something, or off in the head, or both. After refusing to identify herself, she just spiraled into a breakdown during a lot more back and forth with the cop than she reasonably should have been blessed with. He finally arrested her, and I wonder if she wound up in a padded room at some point after that. If you watch the sovereign citizens, you get the whiff of mental illness from some of them, too. Actually, I think it's a little mentally ill to whip out your camera either instinctively or on purpose to the extent it's done these days ...

    Giffords is clutching pearls over several items in the "report," which is really just a medium-long blog post by someone who can string a list together. Think 9 Things Millennials Are Ruining For Everyone and you have basically zeroed in on the idea and approximate level of intelligence of this masterwork. To continue on the topic of scary calibers (.50 is the one Giffords is going after at the moment because it is the largest not covered by the NFA, in rifles at least ) --and to keep the good music going on a Monday, here is a video brought to you by the number 50, where a 50-lb. rifle is not enough gun: "You lied to me! It kicks like a mule!" ----LOL <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/xohy9gWz7kk" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Some of the recoil effects seem to be between fairly mild and quite tolerable, some are just tolerable, and there are a few that seem to be mules. I think the video is trying to show the bullet weights increasing, but I don't know that the shots sync with the cutaways of the various bullets. I think the last shot that flips the log section up on end is definitely supposed to be the 1132 gr. bullet that the guy discusses later in the shop. If that shot was taken by the last shooter seen, I think there was probably some some damage to his dental work. (Also, I appreciate that surprise guest shooter Stan Potts took a beating but came up grinning one or two rounds earlier. :wink) I'll have to watch it again (!) to see if I can match up recoil to bullet weights shown. Fortunately, this video is now on my favorites playlist, so it won't be unpleasant work, LOL. I don't know if it's the music or the merriment involved in shooting a rifle you built yourself in WTF, but it has something goin' on ... BTW, I saw an earlier video of the first shots with this gun (at least as a prototype) a while back, and recoil was quite mild if I'm remembering properly. I'm sure they had the first test rounds loaded down, but they did start off shooting it with a string from behind a barricade. :wink I don't remember if they explained what they had cooked up to start with.

    Whoa! I can't believe it's more than a month since anyone had a pet peeve! I thought it was early for this one: Christmas parades. But no. Not all Christmas parades, mind you ... Just the ones that can't even wait until after Thanksgiving, and/or which are treated with unreasonable respect. Raleighwood had theirs today, for instance. I'm sure the insanity occurred elsewhere as well. But I'll bet the insult to American decorum and the Roman calendar elsewhere wasn't compounded by the local TV station as it was here, when the broadcast ground on through the end of the parade, which ---to the surprise of no one--climaxed with the sudden appearance of Santa and Mrs Claus. However, this decision *did* surprise everyone who wanted to watch Virginia take on undefeated Miami and score on their first possession. Because it was so important to stick with the jolly old elf and his cheering sycophants lining the streets of the capital, and then to roll several minutes of credits and commercials, the geniuses at WRAL didn't get around to this locally-important game and national upset opportunity until five and a half minutes into the first quarter. It was only by a ridiculously early Christmas miracle that we were able to catch the tail end of the touchdown replay. Meanwhile, out here in what used to be the country, the little town I'm near is very sanely delaying their Christmas parade until, well --you know--*December*, as it always has. People will come from far and wide on an appropriate Saturday to clog the crossroads for several hours while I try to not waste too much time standing in line at the post office, taking care of weekly chores. I will then celebrate all the community spirit by exiting town via the backdoor, so as to enjoy driving home the long way around. I note that somewhere along the line, the town government website began to refer to this annual travesty as the Holiday Parade, but if you talk to normal people they'll say Christmas parade. So I got that going for me, which is nice.

    Attention Callous Gun Nuts Who Don't Care About Their Fellow Americans: Those are toast now that USA Today has exposed the danger of these forestry-grade implements of destruction. Chainsaws have only one purpose: cutting things up. Why do you need one? Of course, if we are successful in spending months and months and thousands of dollars an hour drafting and debating legislation (or doing an end-around and just regulating) there will always be people who will are so deviously ingenious and so particularly morally dead inside that they will exploit any exceptions that our expensive attorneys and lobbyists are not able to close. You really need to be clairvoyant to save lives from gun violence with laws and regulations, and we are seeking righteous Americans with paranormal talent or at least a ouija board to rally to our cause. See our listing on Monster.com. It's an affront to civilization and a threat to the American people that the NRA and the Chainsaw Manufacturer's Association have joined forces to resist even common-sense reforms supported by a majority of responsible citizens. Join us at Giffords, a non-profit organization inspiring the courage to make America safer . #StopTheInsanity

    911...What's your emergency? I just heard some shooting down the block! Was it loud? Well, kinda. Kinda a boom .... Like a car backfiring? Well, no. Lower. Lower? Yeah, like a boom, but softer. Not really a bang. A car makes a bang. How many shots? Well, one. And then about a minute or two later, another one. Sounds like one of those suppressed muzzleloaders. We'll send someone out right away. Tell them to hurry! It's coming up on another two minutes! Don't worry, sir. Help is on the way.

    Classic distraction. It's hard to accommodate all your butthurt when it turns out the regulations you supported for regulations' sake were just so much fluff. So, you dig deeper to find some moral outrage and impugn the motives of those who found a way to work with your regulations in one of the few areas left open to them. I doubt anti-capitalism was a motive, back in the day, for making suppressor ownership a huge PITA. Once people realize that the emperor has no clothes, though, it's convenient to suddenly discover greedy boogeymen under the bed.

    That's where I was going with that, but in the back of my mind I'm pretty sure I've seen "fisherman's or double fisherman's" used for single lines for something. I could be wrong. Topics where it could have come up lately would be stopper knots, lineman's belts (flip lines), attachment of carabiners, climbing stick or ladder step modifications and maybe one or two other things I've been up to in the last few months. The main benefit to me of something like the pic is if it could serve as a strong loop as well as a stopper, because I don't know how to make that combination at the moment, or off the top of my head in theory.

    The prussic at left seems uneccessary except as a locator and adjustable "lock" for positioning that pulley on the rope, but I hadn't thought of the jam idea. Clever if true. Haven't thought through the two-people idea yet, either. LOL. I think it started off as some type of stopper knot, with a loop added, which I don't think I've seen before. Since there are cleaner and simpler knots for attaching single carabiners, I don't think its initial purpose was for that one carabiner alone.
