Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it. That's right, Ferris Bueller turns 49 years old today. Happy birthday, Matthew Broderick.
As for me, I had my first opportunity to bring my new Mosin Nagant to the range this weekend. It was made in 1942 at the Izhevsk Arsenal, right in motherfucking downtown Moscow. It's the same place that makes AK-47's and if you can believe it, the very same factory that only last year made my Saiga-12. Was my Mosin used in combat during World War II? No way of telling for sure, but since it was made just prior to the Battle of Stalingrad and three years before of the end of World War II in Europe, I don't think it's out of the question. Following the world war, this and many of the 37,000,000 Mosins were put into long term storage. That involved submerging the entire gun into a boiling vat of cosmoline, which is an oil/wax mixture that prevent the metal from rusting and the wood from rotting. There it sat in some bunker until the end of the Cold war and demise of the Societ Union, where it was sold as surplus, found its way to a gun show here in Florida, and then into my hands about a month ago. The first thing I had to do was remove all the cosmoline, which wasn't too difficult, but rather messy and time consuming. All cleaned and ready to go, it sat in my gun safe for three weeks until I had some Bulgarian military surplus ammo delivered, and could find time to head out to the range. I set up at a 100 yard lane, jammed in some stripper clips, crossed my fingers and dropped the hammer. Holy fucking shit. You want to talk about recoil? Holy mother of fucking God. I brought 100 rounds with me, but could only make it through 55 before my arms were shaking too much to keep a steady bead om the target. The steel buttplate -- useful for smashing in Nazi skulls -- was equally as unfriendly to my shoulder, which now sits about an inch further back than it used to. At 50 yards I had about a 2' spread surrounding the bullseye, but I think that's more my fault than the rifle's: my shooting mechanics were quite rusty and I was weaving the barrel all over the fucking place. My next trip out, I'll take a big heavy foam shooting rest and see if I can't get some tighter groups. But one thing is for sure, I'm sure as fuck glad I'm not a Nazi soldier on the other end of this heavy ass Russian sum'bitch. Or for that matter, a fucking zombie because yes, practice makes perfect.
Speaking of fighting the Russian army, Suomenlinna is an inhabited sea fortress built on six islands, and which now forms part of the city of Helsinki, the capital of Finland. Suomenlinna is popular with both tourists and locals, who enjoy it as a picturesque picnic site. Originally named Sveaborg (Fortress of Svea), or Viapori as called by Finns, it was renamed Suomenlinna in 1918 for patriotic and nationalistic reasons, though it is still also sometimes known by its original name. The Swedish crown commenced the construction of the fortress in 1748 as protection against Russian expansionism. In addition to the island fortress itself, seafacing fortifications on the mainland would ensure that an enemy would not acquire a beach-head from which to stage attacks. In the Finnish War the fortress surrendered to Russia on May 3, 1808, paving the way for the occupation of Finland by Russian forces in 1809. No longer very practical as a military base, Suomenlinna was turned over to civilian administration in 1973. The presence of the military on the islands has been drastically scaled down in recent decades. There is a minimum-security penal labor colony in Suomenlinna, whose inmates work on the maintenance and reconstruction of the fortifications. Only volunteer inmates who pledge non-use of controlled substances are accepted to the labor colony. For the general public, Suomenlinna is served by ferries all year around, but a service tunnel supplying heating, water and electricity was built in 1982. From the beginning of 1990s, the tunnel was modified so that it can also be used for emergency transport.

"I went away for India for 6 months last autumn. Whilst I was away one of my best mates was living in my flat looking after it for me. When I got back from the airport last week there was a note on my coffee table to press play on the Playstation and this video came on the TV.. Pretty awesome, though I did feel slightly violated by what happens at about 1m30s and that might be a bit NSFW."

Casey Heynes, 16, became an internet sensation after footage of him fighting against a bully went viral last week. Heynes says he’s suffered severe bullying for years at Chifley College in Sydney, where abuse from classmates including being slapped, teased, and even taped to a pole. Even the bully's mother says her son got what he deserved -- a broken ankle. Of course, everyone isn’t championing the teen. Taking a page from France's playbook, Dr. Michael Carr-Gregg, a noted child psychologist in Australia, believes there’s a real danger that Casey’s 12-year-old bully may have been permanently injured in the revenge body slam. Dr. Carr-Gregg cites studies which show that bullying victims who retaliate are often victimized more. There are better ways of dealing with confrontation, he argues, such as holding the boy in a bear hug, "or just walking away." And presumably, hitting him with your purse.
