If you have an hour to kill, and you haven't filled your BATSHIT CRAZY quota for the week, this is an EXTREMELY interesting video to watch. It's Louis Theroux's follow-up film to his 2007 original expose of the Westboro Baptist Church; "The most hated family in America". This new film a collection of four 15-minute clips [1 - 2 - 3 - 4]. Crazy Freddy doesn't really make an appearance on camera, but one of his sermons is shown around the the 7:00 minute mark in part two. And the excommunicated chick, Lauren Drain mentioned in the beginning of part one and shown part two? Awesome boobs. In fact, I'd have to say that pretty much all of the (younger) WBC women -- aside from Shirley Phelps, whose face is so ugly she can make a freight train take a dirt road -- are quite fornicatable. The interview with granddaughter, Jael Phelps in part two was kind of scary, including how she painted her room in Biblical verses and then supervises everyone else's interviews to make sure they don't say anything out of doctrine. Kind of makes me wonder what she'd be like if you got a few glasses of wine into her, ya know? But that kind of brainwashing almost reminds of the The Milgram Obedience experiments. It took me an assload of hunting online to find out whose daughter she is -- every article I found identified her as "Fred Phelps granddaughter." Turns out, Jael Phelps has an IMDB profile while I don't. Do you have any idea how disheartening that is for a super movie connoisseur. By the way, godhatesfags.com seems to still be down following the assault by Anonymous. Heh. it is sad that someone tried to hurt their dog though. it ain't the dog's fault their owners are raging assholes.
Old and busted: drunk English chicks. The new hotness: drunk Russian chicks (in jail).
Hey Ernie,You mentioned liking Firefly and had started watching Farscape but wasn't too taken with it. Stick with it, Farscape doesn't really get it's legs until the end of the first season. From then till the end of season three is, in my opinion, some of the best television writing. I think it blows Firefly out of the water and even if you don't agree I think you'll end up having more appreciation for it. Claudia Black also does eventually take a weed wacker to those eyebrows. Keep doing what you do, it's a bright spot on my otherwise dull mornings. Jeremy
Lurking for years, glad I can finally contribute. I have a 1953 Romanian made m-44 carbine and I was having the same trouble you mentioned about being off of center a longer distances, Tried everything, nothing worked, then a Nagant collector i ran into at the range told me to fold out the bayonet. Sure enough it was dead on. He told me, but I haven't seen it anywhere else so don't hold me to it, that they were designed to shoot with it out and were more accurate that way. Maybe someone else can try and see if it helps them. Rob
Hi Ernie, Long time reader, one time donor (things have been tight). I have some information that might assist you on the Mosin-Nagants. Is one of the best forums for information out there. As with anyplace, some there know their shit, some talk shit, but all in all, it's a great place for information and tips. The main forums there cover damn near any type of weapons you can think of, all with good information. I have 2 91/30's, and an M44 myself, and like you had problems with sighting it in. They made good groups, just they were always off center mass by several inches. (take this with a grain of salt, but it worked for me) I've been told that originally 91/30's and M44's were sighted in at the factory with the bayonets in place. Since the bayonets wrap around the muzzle by the crown it could affect the barrel harmonics, so it does actually make sense. I tried it on all three of mine and they all changed from several inches off (usually right or high and right), to within half an inch of center mass of the target at 100 yards. I'm sure that using the sight alignment tools you mentioned will work just fine, but for those within them, they might give this method a try. Besides, if your going to buy a 91/30, and you don't get the bayonet...well..thats like those idiots that used to buy Trans-Am's and Firebirds with a four-banger in them...I mean WTF. Keep up the good work! There's only three things I do _everyday_ on my computer without fail. Check email, setup EHOWA, then head over to Park, in that exact order, 'cause a man's got to have his priorities straight. Frank
Two things. First, for a "feared Luxan Warrior", D'Argo sure goes get his ass kicked a lot. Second, yeah I had read the same thing about the bayonet as well. Soviet doctrine dictated that bayonets were alwasys fixed unless the soldier was travelling in a vehicle (#15 & #37) and hence yes, they were sighted in with the long stabby thing hanging off the front. Modern rifles don't have that problem. Unfortunately for me since the rifle itself is 5,182 feet long as is, I have to fold down my back seats to fit the damned thing int he back of my car. So there ain't no way that's going to happen with a bayonet fixed. And I dunno about you guys, but my bayonet is the only thing that's not matching, so it doesn't really fit the barrel -- too tight actually -- so it sits home unused. But either way, the Mosin is indeed one of the things those pesky Soviets got right.
On the flip side of that coin... in November 1957 the whole world watched in astonishment as the Soviets not only launched Sputnik 2, but revealed they had a stray mongrel named Laika in the satellite as well, making them the first to get a living organism in orbit. Everything about Laika's journey seemed to go swimmingly, until we realized the Soviets never had a safe return plan for their pooch, and they planned for her to die in space all along. Which sucks, of course, but at least she died peacefully when she ate her poisoned food dose a week into orbit, as the Soviets reported, right? Except, oh wait, that's not how Laika died at all. In 2002 it was revealed that Laika wasn't euthanized, but that she died in the most horrifying way possible within hours of the launch. Here's the interview piece, in case anyone speaks Russian, and a shorter piece with subtitles if you don't. Sputnik 2, it turned out, was something of a rush job. The whole insame mission had been planned and put together in four weeks, so no one should have been surprised when the thermal insulation system broke right away. Poor Laika, whose little doggy heart was already beating at four times its resting rate, found herself in a cabin that was 104 degrees Fahrenheit. Her body shut down from stress and heat within five to seven hours of her launch. NASA named a soil target on Mars after Laika during the Mars Exploration Rover mission
Not to sound like a broken record but that's no way for a pioneer to die. A parachute not opening... that's a way to die. Getting caught in the gears of a combine... having your nuts bit off by a Laplander, that's the way I wanna go! Just like Nordberg. And c'mon, is he really one of the most hated players in football history? Tom Brady and Brett Favre should rank much higher.
On that note, I've got a table for four reserved at the hottest place in hell. Let me know if you want me to save you a seat!
