    Navy Service

    Looking for some wisdom: A neighbor's nephew took his ASVAB and did very well, and was offered a slot in the nuc program(enlisted). Since I am an old Marine he asked me what I know, which is zero. I imparted some thoughts about military life in general, and life aboard ships, but that's about...

    Sidearms & Scatterguns Just got myself a ka-bar, anything I need to know?

    I have several, you will like it for just about everything. I have one I use as a "beater"; opening beers, driving nails after too many beers, throwing into tree after more beers. Oh, yeah, and it's caped/gutted/quartered/boned many pigs and some elk; you'll have Popeye forearms after awhile...

    Hunting & Fishing Hunting in Germany

    NNN, I hope all goes well for you, I have one bit to add: It sounds like your son is of age where it's time he took a hunter's safety course; you should take one with him. It's great father-son time, he won't feel left alone, and will do better on the test portion(which are easy if you just...

    New Supergun

    OK, stop practicing, reloading, buying top-line gear. You won't need it. 'Smart Rifle' Begins Shipping to Gun Owners This Week I know, combine the yahoo idiots with ABC and you get what you deserve by spending any time there anyway, but it caught my eye, so I read it. I especially like the 3...

    Maggie’s The excuse creator

    Go straight across for the first 6 or 7, good laughs, especially top row. I recommend complete sobriety prior to use of this list... The one you use drunk likely would be the funniest, but when the -now- ex tells you what you said, well... I guess you would laugh twice! (Until the alimony...

    Maggie’s Had an Amazing Dump today

    Glad you put up the pics! I thought you meant another kind of "dump." I had a pretty good one today, too, but I wondered why you were telling us about yours. Congrats on the dump!

    Hunting & Fishing .338 Lapua projectile for hunting big game?

    For hunting just about any big game: I've gone to Barnes TSX, and I don't plan to go back. No lead, easy to find, not outrageously expensive, plenty of calibers, as accurate as any other production hunting bullet.

    Omaha Beef Indoor team just made an offer- $75/game! I'd take it if I were him- it might be the only offer he gets this season, at least until the injury bug hits some team hard, and they need anybody that can call signals.

    MotoGP lands in Texas

    +1 on the race! And yes, it is a beautiful track, nothing else like in the states. Man those guys are unbelievable!

    High school player hits 3 homeruns in one inning

    Yes, I watched that in awe. I saw an interview a few months ago, and Jackson said that when they brought in Charlie Hough for the last one, he thought they were playing games; he had always hit knucklers pretty well. So Hough warms up, and then serves up, a monstrous blast Jackson hit like...

    High school player hits 3 homeruns in one inning

    I first saw the title and wondered why the big deal, then saw the part that said INNING!! Things like this are why baseball can sometimes be appreciated as one-of-a-kind. It will likely never happen again; just like Fernando Tatis hitting 2 grand slams in one inning vs Dodgers. Any pitcher or...

    Broken ankle squat delay question

    I have an ankle screwed back together, but no plate. Still in there, been since... I dunno, 1990? Think Gulf War timeline. 5 screws, makes for funny x-ray when you go in after dismounting a street bike @ 50mph and forget to tell the tech. As I recall it seemed to take forever(think 2-3months?)...

    Maggie’s Vodka, best bang for your buck?

    It doesn't say vodka on the label, but you'll love it at first taste: Junior Johnson's Midnight Moon. Trust me, you won't be disappointed. They also(of course) have the flavors that have been traditional in the N.C. area; cherry, blueberry, etc. The Apple Pie goes down straight, just a little...

    This is obscene

    Supply, demand, and unions. Supply- if you could do the things these guys can do (IR talk later), you would take the money just like them. There is a very, very short list of humans that can (even with drugs) do these things; that's why there is Sportscenter. Demand- When you are one bat...
