Re: The Krag challenge

Someone in the billing office called late this afternoon. Finally found out what was intended to be done. Enhanced (extra cost lenses) with laser correction for astigmatism. Told the billing lady I was unhappy with the failure to call back, so another rep called later and I milked her for more info....

Re: crazy gun

Saw that same photo here a couple of days ago. Funny that in the old westerns with the never empty revolver, they never showed this one that could actually shoot 20 times in a row with out reloading. I count 48 possible shots without reloading here. If they did show a western with this one functioni...

Re: Unintended Consequences of Going Green

Used to live on Hwy 97 and it was a designated oversize vehicle route. You have no idea how big those blades are till you see them up close. A farm of those things will slow the wind down, which will have some effect on the climate. Good or bad who knows. Some big wind farms near Corpus Christi, som...

Re: The Krag challenge

Worked out on the ranch this morning and thought about things. Beautiful sunrise and I am doing work that younger men could not do and saw a bunch of deer this morning. Looked in the mirror when I get out of the shower and realize there are few men that are pushing 70 that are in as good as shape as...

Re: The Krag challenge

Between color blindness and now cataracts I am going to say at least 12. Sat out on a hay bale watching for pigs last night and noticed I could not see most of the stars in the Orion constellation with my right eye and with my left eye every semi bright planet, star or distant light had a star burst...

The end is near!

A couple of days ago there was a comic captioned the "end is near". Made me think of this joke that was originally in Brownwells emails: "Da End Iss Near! Turn Yourself Aroundt Now! Before It"s Too Late!" Pastors Sven & Ole, Nort Dakota Reverend Ole was the pastor of the...

Re: New member looking to learn

If I get real close to the screen, I can make out the hand guard and sight, So, what do I win for passing the test? When I got the results of that online CB test, it diagnosed me as extreme and said that the new fangled color correcting glasses probably would do nothing for as I was too far gone. It...

So, it was not hot pink on the toenails? I guess BR's comment was what he applied to his front sights. I get confused easily when colors are discussed.

Re: New member looking to learn

Boy that was funny. I will not tell my wife the next time a take a foot picture. Hot pink you say, you could have fooled me. I was taking a color blind test on this computer when my secretary walked by. She said you can not see that number, it is hot pink on gray. All the dots looked the same to me....

Re: Fun Gun Challenge - What is it?

I think Popular Mechanics and Scientific American are better indexed as far as articles for research. I found an inquiry about American Machinist and it was mentioned a couple of libraries where one could find every volume ever published but they are not near here and I would get sidetracked to easi...
