A Day At The Range

So I went to the range today to run my HK MP5. For those not familiar with the weapon, it’s a fully automatic sub-machine gun in 9mm. It’s very fast and very controllable. My 10 year old daughter became the belle of the ball as the folks around the range stood in awe of her skills. Using simple technique, she was keeping the overwhelming majority of her fully automatic shots on an 8 inch circle at 10 yards. I was a proud Papa… Let’s see how the Electric Venom Link Love festival treats this.

An Underwhelming Battle

   

I’m usually not that big a fan of college football. I enjoy the professional version of the game, as opposed to the semi-pro edition. The whole notion of polls, rankings, and the testosterone laden “my conference is stronger than yours” thing is just so… weird. I do like the marching bands and I do like the fact that the cheerleaders are somewhat more genuine than the hyper-organized gentlemen’s club troupes of the NFL. All that said, I will admit that I am having a bit of a giggle over today’s stellar matchup. The vaunted tilt between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Michigan Wolverines is not so vaunted. Both teams are winless in this year’s schedule with Michigan’s 110,000 fans regularly booing their team off the field. This is the first time since AP started ranking teams (1936) that Michigan and Notre Dame will both be unranked when they play.

C’mon… We’re Forming a Posse!

Philly has a problem. The city’s “embattled” police chief, Sylvester Johnson, sits on top of a quivering quagmire of escalating violent crime. But he has an idea. He wants 10,000 black men to patrol the streets of Philly in hopes of reducing crime. Am I the only one that sees major flaws in this plan?

But He Didn’t Speak

Some guy in a Pluto outfit at Disney takes a chase a little too seriously, some adult calls him out… but he never speaks (I think).

Tasty Critters

It’s said that most people that live south of the Mason/Dixon line will fry anything. It’s true. Everything from Snickers bars to CocaCola. And I’ve got an ongoing debate with several business associates regarding frying. My contention is that there is no food that is not as good or better when battered and deep fried. That point made… We may fry anything, but we may not actually eat it. Case in point: the ginormous fried rats above. Ugh.
