A day in the life of law enforcement: the good, the bad, and the ugly. Yeah, just another day in the life of old JD Buck Savage.
A tongue-twister is a phrase that is designed to be difficult to articulate properly, and can be used as a type of spoken word game. Some tongue-twisters produce results which are humorous when they are mispronounced, while others simply rely on the confusion and mistakes of the speaker for their amusement value. Tongue-twisters may rely on rapid alternation between similar but distinct phonemes, unfamiliar constructs in loanwords, or other features of a spoken language in order to be difficult to articulate. For example, the following sentence was claimed as "the most difficult of common English-language tongue-twisters" by William Poundstone. "The seething sea ceaseth and thus the seething sea sufficeth us." This type of tongue-twister was incorporated into a popular song in 1908, with words by British songwriter Terry Sullivan and music by Harry Gifford. "Silly Sally sells sunglasses on the sea-shore."
You know, looking at Colgate's Body Wash website, I'm pretty sure this scent has been discontinued? Either that or they redesigned the label for Sweet Honeysuckle and Orangepeel.

Heya Ern, I know you have a soft spot for Mosin Nagants, so you were the first person i thought of when i saw this. Take care Hoss, TK
just a note from a non compliant CT gun owner. Been doing a lot of research on these "80% lowers" and thought youd might have an angle on these. Maybe you could dedicate a day to putting out some thought/ information on them. ...steve
I'll preface this by saying I'm far from an expert on 80% lowers, but I will share what I do know. An 80% Receiver is a partially completed piece of material that requires specific tooling and a very particular set of skills to be completed and considered a firearm. For all intents and purposes, you're being shipped a block of partially milled aluminum and unlike a completed receiver, it is not required to be transferred through a Federal Firearms Licensed holder. Completing the remaining 20% must be done by you, and you alone. Not by you and your drinking buddy, not you with the assistance of your machinist father-in-law, but by YOU and YOU ALONE. Now how in the hell this could ever be enforced, I have no idea. But it's worth repeating. Since most manufacturers vary their designs a little bit --some skip steps others do, and others complete steps skipped by others -- there is no one-size-fits all tutorial that is guaranteed to cover every different 80% lower out there.
But here are some good resources: if you have some time, there's a nice 55-minute long how to video walking you through the entire process using a drill press. Here's a nice set of photos detailing the step-by-step process using hand tools. of which you'll need a vice, a steady hand and either a Dremel or electric drill. Personally I'd steep you towards an aluminum lower receiver, since if you search for broken polymer receiver there are too many results to make me comfortable. Unless of course you wanted to pick up some cheapie inexpensive polymer lower just to practice your technique on.
I was talking about this with a Will who sent me over these photos of an 80% lower he created and you can see how it's milled out from an aluminum block and you can see how it's made. He also graciously offered to send me one -- an offer I quickly accepted -- and asked me what i wanted engraved on the side. My first thought was, "Go in that bag and find my rifle. Which one is it? It's the one that says bad motherfucker. That's it. That's my bad motherfucker." But in the end I went with something a little more tried and true. I'll post pics once I receive it.
For those of you not awesome enough to run your own website, you can shop for an 80% lower kits or if you don't have access to any sort of machinery to get the job done, a completed AR-15 lowers receivers -- for some reason there is some miscategorized .22 ammo in there? -- but that will of course have to go through an FFL. And for any fucking morons out there who think OMGAGHOSTGUNWITHNOSERIALNUMBER, I'd like to point out that in the entire history of the AR platform, there has only been one shooting committed with a firearm born from an 80% lower. So don't get your panties in a wad.

Was watching the Vulcan fly over on your 4/8 link. Couple vids later is this flash flood in southern Utah. I've seen signs in Texas while travelling but never saw one in person. Looks slow, but it's pretty deadly from what I understand if you get caught in one. Lot of power built up over 40 miles. You even get to see a pretty big boulder rolling downstream.
Usually the words “sleep” and “Boeing 747? conjure up images of a sleeping pilot and a crashed plane, but here's a situation in which you can fall asleep behind the engine of a 747 and wake up feeling refreshed and relaxed. A company called MotoArt takes old Boeing 747 engines and re-purposes them into king sized beds. BIG PIMPIN.
"Living Dead Girl" is the second single from Rob Zombie's solo debut Hellbilly Deluxe. It was named after Jean Rollin's 1982 film. The line, "Who is this irresistible creature who has an insatiable love for the dead?" in the beginning of the song is from the trailer of the film, Lady Frankenstein. The music in the beginning of the song is taken from the trailer of the Wes Craven film, The Last House on the Left. The spoken words "What are you thinking about?/The same thing you are" at the beginning of the verses are taken from the 1971 film Daughters of Darkness. In Living Dead Girl, Zombie sings, "Goldfoot's machine creates another fiend so beautiful they make you kill". This relates to the villain played by Vincent Price in the 1965 film Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine and the 1966 film Dr. Goldfoot and the Girl Bombs.
