Ernie's House of Whoop Ass!

One of the Friday night staples at a local hangout of mine is an old dude that the bartenders call Loverboy Jim. And I'd like to point out the fact that they gave him that nickname, not me. And they did do because it was simply not possible for a female to enter or leave the bar without giving ol Jim a hug and kiss; The Boss Lady included. Jim was always smiling, always telling jokes, and always spilling his drink all over the fucking bar when he gestured with his hands. And sometimes he even got a few of the older gals to sit down and knock back a few martinis with him. And so I was a little saddened this past week, when I stopped in to wet my whistle, and found out that ol Jim had passed away the day after Thanksgiving, at the ripe old age of 83. Husband, father, grandfather, Eagle, Moose, volunteer, machinist and Veteran. So long Loverboy Jim, we hardly knew ye.
And for whatever fucking reason, reading his obituary got me to thinking about Uncommon Valor; I know, I know that's a movie about the Vietnam war while Jim was in the Korean War. Whatever, my mind does what it wants. Anyway, besides reflecting upon some vintage Patrick Swayze, I also picked out two faces that you really don't see much more of anymore. The first was Fred Ward -- he played Wilkes -- and would go on to star in one of my favorite movies growing up, The Adventures of Remo Williams. Man I wish they made a sequel to that. And the second person is Reb Brown -- playing Blaster in Uncommon Valor -- who would pave the way for Chris Evans as the original Captain America from 1979. Thems was the days.
Shelter Cove is on California's Lost Coast where the King Range meets the Pacific Ocean. A 9-hole golf course surrounds the one-runway Shelter Cove Airport at the center of Shelter Cove's commercial district; the population was 693 at the 2010 census. Much of the land around Shelter Cove belongs to the Kings Range National Conservation Area, managed by the Bureau of Land Management. One word best describes Shelter Cove: remote. It's worth the trip to see the gray-colored sand, the result of years of erosion of the nearby gray-shale cliffs along the shore. The area is also known for its scenic coastal drives, hikes, and an abundant source of wildlife at the nearby 68,000-acre King Range National Conservation Area, home to sea lions, bald eagles, and Roosevelt elk -- even Bigfoot himself has been spotted roaming the woods here.

If anyone wanted to know, the location of this picture, it is Weeki Wachee Springs State Park in Weeki Wachee, FL. A really cool place to go to see underwater performances by mermaids. Jerimy.
Ernie, Love your site! Every day! I have a running picture log of all the places I'm going to visit before I leave this planet. This photo. Where is it of? Any idea? I need to add it, but I need a location. Thanks! John
That last photo is of the Giola Lagoon in Astris, Greece.
When you see this photo of Jenna Haze at AVN 2008, you think wow she looks good. Then I had an epiphany ... I wonder what she looks like in real life. Well, let's take a look.
This past Sunday, the Philadelphia Eagles played the Detroit Lions at Lincoln Financial Field under conditions that, at times, could only be described as blizzard-like. Only light snow showers had been forecasted, but mother nature ended up dumping a half foot of the white stuff on the Philadelphia area. There's no doubt in my mind that this game will go down as one of the most memorable snow games in NFL history. However, I'm not quite ready to make the call on where, exactly, this one fits. So let's take a look at other famous snow games on the short list. Some were played recently, some took place a generation ago, and some include that fucking King of Cheaters, Tom Fucking Brady. Fuck you and your tuck rule, Tom.
Ernie, I received these pics from a fellow coworker today. Thought you would enjoy them. Stay warm down there in Florida. Tyson

Two things really infuriate me about the internet> First,people giving advice. Granted, some advice is helpful, while some is not so helpful -- but the second thing -- the one that really pissed me off? Was realizing this woman is married to a hipster. A fucking hipster!

The original radio broadcast from unidentified USA radio station and it's EMERGENCY BROADCAST announcement from Washington DC.
"Trapped in the belly of the USS Oklahoma. Richard "Swede" Artley didn't see the attack on Pearl Harbor. "I just heard one hell of a bang," recalls Artley. "That was the first torpedo hitting the ship." He figures seven to 10 torpedoes hit the battleship in the early morning hours of December 7, 1941, as Japanese submarines and planes attacked the United States' Pacific Fleet. "The old gal turned over 150 degrees in 15 minutes." Artley spent the next 36 hours in a compartment filling with water. "I prayed a lot, cussed a lot and slept some." He's one of 32 survivors cut out of the massive ship's hull in the days following the Sunday morning attack. By the time rescuers got to him Monday at 6 p.m., the water filled 98 percent of the compartment. Artley figures if they hadn't gotten to him when they did, he would have been dead within another 15 minutes." [read Richard "Swede" Artley's story]
"Yesterday, December 7, 1941 - a date which will live in infamy - the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan. The United States was at peace with that nation, and, at the solicitation of Japan, was still in conversation with its government and its emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace in the Pacific. Indeed, one hour after Japanese air squadrons had commenced bombing in the American island of Oahu, the Japanese ambassador to the United States and his colleague delivered to our secretary of state a formal reply to a recent American message. While this reply stated that it seemed useless to continue the existing diplomatic negotiations, it contained no threat or hint of war or armed attack." [see Roosevelt's speech]
"On 6 Dec 2013 I will be attending a Pearl Harbor 72nd Anniversary ceremony in Des Plaines, Ill. I will be driving Chief Petty Officer Joe Triolo USN Ret to the ceremony. Chief Triolo manned a 50 caliber machine gun on board the USS Tangiers that day and was credited with hitting three Japanese aircraft. This was his third ship since he joined the Navy in 1937. His first ship was the USS Oklahoma and his best friend from back home in West Virginia died on the Oklahoma on 7 Dec 1941." [read CPO Triolo's story]
When they heard the first explosion, it sounded like a training exercise gone awry. But Thomas “Gene” Reinhardt, 92, said when the second one came, shortly before 8 a.m. on Dec. 7, 1941, he and the members of the U.S. Army 24th Signal Company knew it was something much worse. “I heard the first bomb drop. I heard the second bomb drop,” he said. “But I saw the third bomb dropped that started World War II.” Reinhardt, who lives in Belmont, is among a dwindling number of survivors who were on the island of Oahu when the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor was attacked by the Japanese. The surprise assailment by fighter planes dropped bombs and torpedoes on U.S. forces over the course of two hours. Thousands of soldiers and sailors were killed, hundreds of U.S. planes destroyed, ships such as the USS Arizona were sunk and the naval fleet was grievously injured. [read Thomas “Gene” Reinhardt's account]

Here's a moral dilemma that I want you to think about before answering. Man who can legally purchase a firearm does so, but does so on behalf of someone who CAN'T legally purchase a gun. Man goes to jail -- and rightfully so -- for a straw purchase. Now, man who can legally purchase a firearm does so, but does so on behalf of someone who CAN also legally purchase a gun. Is that a straw purchase? Some 27 states (and counting) believe the answer should be no.
On that note, the Heckler & Koch Mark 23, or MK 23, is a weapon system consisting of a match grade semi-automatic pistol, a laser aiming module, and suppressor. It was adopted by the United States Special Operations Command for special operations units in the 1990s. In more than 450 accuracy test firings from a precision firing fixture at 25 meters, MK 23 pistols far exceeded the government requirement, averaging 1.44 inches, with 65 groups of less than one inch. There were four groups of .5 inches, with 5 rounds going through the same hole! Heckler & Koch offered the MK 23 on the civilian market and law enforcement as the MARK 23. The models for the U.S. market initially came with a 10-round magazine, to comply with the U.S. Assault Weapons Ban. The ban has now expired, and the civilian Mark 23 comes with the same 12-round magazine as the government variants, except in a few states that enforce their own bans on magazines larger than 10 rounds. It is the world's largest -- and with it's $2,000 price tag -- and most expensive .45 caliber handgun. But that's cool, because carpe diem and all that shit, you can have it for $1799.78 + 5.99 S/H.
A portable air conditioner is one on wheels that can be easily transported inside a home or office. They are currently available with capacities of about 5,000–60,000 BTU/h and with and without electric-resistance heaters. Portable air conditioners are either evaporative or refrigerative. Portable refrigerative air conditioners come in two forms, split and hose. These compressor-based refrigerant systems are air-cooled, meaning they use air to exchange heat, in the same way as a car or typical household air conditioner does. Such a system dehumidifies the air as it cools it. It collects water condensed from the cooled air and produces hot air which must be vented outside the cooled area via a hose; doing so transfers heat from the air in the cooled area to the outside air.
Ernie, Thanks for EHOWA, LBEH, and all the entertainment over the years. Perhaps this is a bit too soon, but I found it funny (I know, I'm sick…) Nelson Mandela died at 95. But respect where respect is due-that's 5 MPH faster than Paul Walker! Jason
Ernie - this would be the definition of insanity. Cheers!! Mike.
The Porsche Carrera GT is a mid-engined sports car that was manufactured by Porsche between 2004–2007 in Leipzig, Germany. Sports Car International named the Carrera GT number one on its list of Top Sports Cars of the 2000s, and number eight on Top Sports Cars of All Time list. Porsche claims it will accelerate from 0 to 100 60 in 3.8 seconds and has a maximum speed of 205 mph, although road tests indicated that in reality the car can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds and 0-100 mph in 6.8 seconds. The Carrera GT is powered by a 5.7 litre V10 engine producing 612 hp, although the engine in the GT that Rodas was driving when both he and Paul Walker were killed, might have been modified to produce even more power.
And not to get Paul Walker fans all bent out of shape but Ford has revealed the 50th Anniversary Mustang and I have to admit, it looks pretty fucking sweet!
Alberto-Culver is an American corporation with international sales whose principal business is manufacturing hair and skin beauty care products under such brands as Alberto VO5, Andrew Collinge, St. Ives skin care products, TRESemme, FDS, Consort, and Nexxus. The company was purchased and founded in 1955 by Leonard H. Lavin who was an entrepreneur and manufacturer's representative for various other companies. The newly created company was then moved to Chicago and a hundred other products were dropped and the company focused on Alberto VO5 shampoo and hairdressing. In 1958, Alberto VO5 Hairdressing became the number one brand in its category and it still holds that position today; the company's 2012 sales were reported at $1.54 billion.

Ernie - In case you haven't seen this yet, I received this from a former DEA agent and believe it to be accurate. "This is an emboscada (ambush) of the Federal Forces in Zitacuaro, Michuacan, Mexico. See what Mexican drug cartels are capable off doing to law enforcement. This incident happened on June 14, 2010, ten Mexican federal agents were killed and many injured. See the pictures and study them. Notice the impact of the rounds on the vehicles, and then look at the terrain and notice where the shooters were positioned for the ambush and if there was any cover for the victims?" Keep up the great work, Leslie

A W18 engine is an eighteen cylinder piston engine which usually has a single crankshaft with three banks of six cylinders arranged in an inverted broad arrow configuration. An early example is the Isotta Fraschini Asso 750 used to power the Italian Savoia-Marchetti S.55 seaplanes flown by Italo Balbo into Chicago in 1933. This engine used the same layout as a recent series of engines produced by Bugatti - basically a vertical six with two adjacent banks set at 60° each to make a W-18. Subsequently in 1972 Formula 1 rules were changed to outlaw the use of engines with more than 12 cylinders. Rocchi used this module as the basis for a 3˝ litre W12 engine for Life Racing Engines in 1988, although this was infamously unsuccessful. Recent W18 engines powered the Bugatti EB 118, Bugatti EB 218, Bugatti 18/3 Chiron and Bugatti EB 18.4 Veyron concept cars in the late 1990s.

There are a lot of things that have to happen before you start considering a flask as a Christmas gift for someone in your life. For one, that person needs to
be a drunk like to party all the time. Two, you need to be OK with that. And three, you have to be prepared to actually encourage it with a flask that will make this person want to drink even more. If you've crossed those three hurtles, it may be time for you to dive into the Christmas Flask Gift Guide.
