So far be it from me to consider myself a collector of vintage firearms, but I made another respectable purchase this past week: a Smith and Wesson Model 29 with a 8 3/8" barrel, manufactured in July of 1977. And a little bit of Clint Eastwood trivia for you: Dirty Harry was the only movie where he used an 8 3/8" barrel, all of the remaining Dirty Harry films featured a Model 29 with a 6 1/2" barrel. Anyway, I snapped a few more pictures of mine, and two that I thought of particular interest were the Annual Income Range box on the warranty registration card, and the .44 Magnum vs .38 Special vs 9mm comparison. And while Clint was indeed correct that the .44 Magnum was the most powerful handgun in the world at the time, it was eclipsed two years later by the .454 Casul and then in 2005 S & W introduced the 460 Magnum. While not the largest caliber, it is billed as the worlds fastest revolver hurtling a 200 grain bullet at well over 2200 feet per second and I sure bet it would come in handy when you're fighting the cartels in the middle of the desert. And just for the record, I named my S&W 29, "Lord Humungous".
I've always wondered why the hell Inglourious Basterds was misspelled. There's one "U" too many and an "E" that should be an "A," in case you haven't noticed. Movie nuts know that the name is inspired by the Italian war movie The Inglorious Bastards (the director even makes a cameo here), but that doesn't explain the misspelling. Turns out the original script for Inglorious Basterds contains an extended flashback sequence starring Donny "The Bear Jew" Donowitz, a part played by Eli Roth that was originally written for Adam fucking Sandler, if you can believe it. The scene comes just as Donny is about to beat a Nazi to death with his baseball bat -- we see Donny buying the bat in his old neighborhood in Boston (spelled "Bostin") right before shipping out to fight in World War II. Good luck not hearing Happy Madison's voice screaming in your brain as you read this dialogue, by the way.

Per their website, the Ultima Hora is a newspaper published in Paraguay (translated into English). "Black and white, with 16 pages with more text than pictures, with national and international news, with the humor on top, at a cost of 10 Guarani and the subtle irony and Isaac Kostianovsky address. Thus was born on October 8, 1973 the evening newspaper Ultima Hora, that through social commitment, professional competence and the advocacy of democratic values, sought to become a player and broadcaster of his time." Well evidently, they have stepped up to color printing on their front page.
Ernie, A few months ago I sent you and e-mail about The Ozzy Foundation and you posted it on your website. A lot of money was donated to the Foundation and quite a bit to help my dog, Bodi, in particular. Unfortunately, on August 8 2012, Bodi lost his 14 month battle with K-9 Lymphoma. He was a good boy and I will miss him terribly. I just wanted to write and thank you and your readers for what you did for him and The Ozzy Foundation. Thanks to you, your readers and the Foundation he had far more days in the sun than I could have hoped for. Again, thanks for everything. Joe
Hey Ernie, long time reader, never contributed shit. Thought you might enjoy this, they are both retired Air Force Master Sergeants from Rockport, Texas. Regards, Jerod
A ceiling fan is a mechanical fan, usually electrically powered, suspended from the ceiling of a room, that uses hub-mounted rotating paddles to circulate air. A ceiling fan rotates much more slowly than an electric desk fan; it cools people effectively by introducing slow movement into the otherwise still, hot air of a room, inducing evaporative cooling. Fans never actually cool air, unlike air-conditioning equipment, but use significantly less power since cooling air is thermodynamically expensive. Pull-chain controls are the most common method of operation for household fans. This style of fan is equipped with a metal-bead chain or cloth cord which, when pulled, cycles the fan through the operational speed(s) and then back to off.
Well, the 2012 Summer Olympics are finally over. It was all a lot of fun for most people, but unfortunately now it's time to pay the bill. You see, a lot of countries offer cash bonuses to their athletes for bringing home the gold. In some countries, these bonuses are relatively modest in size because they are merely rewards for a job well-done. In other countries, however, these bonus are pretty sizable because they think they will have a carrot and stick effect, motivating athletes to do better in order to get that big payday. So now that the Games are over and all the medals have been handed out, it's time for the various governments and Olympic Committees around the world to get the bill for all their Olympic success. Thus today we're raking 23 countries in accordance with what they pay for gold medal victories at the Olympics. Then we'll add up all the wins to calculate how much each country will owe its gold medalists. Bonus Trivia: since Michael Phelps has won 18 gold medals, 2 silvers, and 2 bronzes in his Olympic career, that means he has collected $500,000 for his medals, which is probably what he makes in endorsements in about six weeks.

I saw this and cannot believe a town council would fine a person handing out food to poor kids. Maybe there is more to the story than Fox is showing, but fuck. When did handing out food to kids become a punishable offense. Again, love the site. Thanks, Ted

Keep up the great work. Anthony.
I've pulled that link, and forwarded that info on to the responsible party, thanks man! I'm even going to let you stay up past your bedtime tonight as a reward!

Puppetry is a form of theatre or performance that involves the manipulation of puppets. It is very ancient, and is believed to have originated 3000 years BC. Puppetry takes many forms but they all share the process of animating inanimate performing objects. Puppetry is used in almost all human societies both as entertainment – in performance – and ceremonially in rituals and celebrations such as carnivals. Most puppetry involves storytelling. The impact of puppetry depends on the process of transformation of puppets, which has much in common with play. Puppetry developed throughout the twentieth century in a variety of ways. Supported by the parallel development of cinema, television and other filmed media it now reaches a larger audience than ever. Another development, starting at the beginning of the century, was the belief that puppet theatre, despite its popular and folk roots, could speak to adult audiences with an adult, and experimental voice, and reinvigorate the high art tradition of actors' theatre.
