"Forty years ago, when the resolution of enslaving America was formed in Great Britain, the British parliament was advised by an artful man, who was governor of Pennsylvania, to disarm the people. That it was the best and most effectual way to enslave them. But that they should not do it openly; but to weaken them and let them sink gradually, by totally difusing and neglecting the militia. This was a most iniquitous project. Why should we not provide against the danger of having our militia, our real and natural strength, destroyed? And I ask Sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people except for a few public officials." - George Mason, June 14, 1988.

Fuck it, this guy IS a role model: Sir Charles believes the more successful you are, the better you should tip. In fact, some blackjack dealer out there has 25,000 reasons to love the guy. But Scottie Pippen, The Rock, and Tiger Woods? Not so much.
And really? Four days on, and noone out there can tell me what this tattoo reads? I say "Fuck you," Jobu, I do it myself; on this next one I'm so fucking close in Street View that I can nearly fucking taste it. I've even managed to find a photo of the alley she is walking out from. But for the fucking life of me, I can't find exactly where it is on Google Maps.
Craig Harrison was a Corporal of Horse in the Blues and Royals RHG/D of the British Army, and holds the record for the longest confirmed sniper kill in combat, at a range of 2,475 meters (8,120 feet). Harrison consecutively struck two Taliban machine gunners south of Musa Qala in Helmand Province in Afghanistan at a range of 2,475 m (2,707 yd) using a L115A3 Long Range Rifle. In a BBC interview, Harrison reported it took about nine shots for him and his spotter to initially range the target successfully. Then, he reported, his first shot "on target" was a killing shot followed consecutively by a kill shot on a second machine gunner then a third which disabled the machine gun. He later had to go into hiding when the British Ministry of Defense blew his cover, putting his life and those of his wife and daughter in great jeopardy.
