Happy Fucking St Patrick's Day. Usually I try to post lots of holiday themed links and pictures but to be perfectly fucking honest, I forgot this year. So fuck you, you whiny bitch.
It's hard to believe it's been 32 years since the Terminator walked into a Van Nuys gun store and walked out with a Franchi SPAS-12, an AMT Hardballer Longslide with a laser sight, and an IMI Uzi. The laser sight on the .45 Longslide was specially built by Laser Products Corporation -- now Sure-Fire -- and since 1984 was in the early days of laser-aimed weapons and what was seen was actually not a complete assembly. Only the laser was mounted but the required battery pack was hidden from view. In those days the battery packs were very large, about the size of a TV remote control. A wire was hidden underneath Arnold Schwarzenegger's sleeve. So when you look at how large and awkward the first laser sight were, and how much effort had to go into their construction, I hope you'll be just as amazed as I am when you see these new TruGlo Micro-Tac lasers, which are about the size of a few quarters stacked together.
Oh and in case you wanted to do a little sight seeing, the Alamo gun shop, which was located at 14329 Victory Blvd, is now a used car lot. Meanwhile, in the United Kingdom.
The Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock, is a large sandstone rock formation in the southern part of the Northern Territory in central Australia. It lies 208 miles south west of the nearest large town, Alice Springs. Kata Tjuta and Uluru are the two major features of the Ulu?u-Kata Tju?a National Park. Uluru is sacred to the Anangu, the Aboriginal people of the area. The area around the formation is home to an abundance of springs, waterholes, rock caves, and ancient paintings. Today the town is an important tourist hub and service centre for the surrounding area. The development of tourism infrastructure adjacent to the base of Uluru that began in the 1950s soon produced adverse environmental impacts. It was decided in the early 1970s to remove all accommodation related Uluru facilities and re-establish them outside the park.
More than a Chernobyl handful of people were able to identify the two water bottles yesterday -- low hanging fruit, I guess -- so here is one of the first to include pics...
Ernie, The two water varieties are Kirkland (Costco) brand drinking water and Crystal Geyser Natural Alpine Spring Water . Lance
Ernie, The two brands of water are Kirkland (which is the Costco brand) and Crystal Geyser brand. We get both brands here in California, so she might be in Cali somewhere. Phil
That is the Casino Happy Day in Prague, and is actually only on the top floor of this shopping center. Below it appears to be a florist and maybe a bar (Branik is a brand of beer or pivo as they call it). This was the best I could do for street view. Cameron
Challenging you to track down where this photo was taken would be too easy, since any fucking moron could see it was taken just across from the Rio sign. So unlike the softball one yesterday, you'd better put your fucking sleuthing hats on if you expect to find this marina.
Meanwhile in Florida: "It's no reason she should have waited until I think he walked out the yard to try to shoot him," said the sister of now deceased 17-year-old Trevon Slick Johnson, who was shot and killed by a 54 year old Florida homeowner after she caught him breaking into her home. "If she called the police already why would she shoot him? You have to look at it from every child's point of view that was raised in the hood," Nisha Johnson continued. “You have to understand, how he gonna get his money to have clothes to go to school? You have to look at it from his point-of-view."
