Here is a post by LawDog that reminds those who need reminding that Gun Free ≠ Violence Free.  Go read the post.  Watch the video. When folks tell me […]

QOTD: GOM* edition

Via MArooned: Happiness is a rotating drum grenade launcher. Nothing says “stay off my lawn” or “What are your intentions towards my daughter” like six rounds of high explosives. Follow the link for a picture. *grumpy old man

QOTD: Epic Realist Edition

One of the frustrating things about blogging is that I read dozens of blog posts a day, and invariably just about the time I’m ready to write something, I find that someone else has expressed pretty much what I wanted to say much more eloquently.  To wit, Kevin at The Smallest Minority on New Year’s […]

I kept waiting for Ryan to come flying onto the screen doing flips on a skateboard while being chased by […]

Link Dump

Only three, but worth checking out. 1)  A collection of images related to the “you didn’t build that” meme. (via SDA) 2)  A video done in the style of the anti-drug films they used to show us in the 70’s.  Who knew catnip could be so dangerous? 3)  A link to a link and a […]
