  • I picked it up today...a Blackhawk Spec-Ops stock with recoil suppression springs built-in. It wasn't cheap...but it's got adjustable length, fits right into the existing weapon, and looks pretty bad-news.

  • Excuse me, but I don't feel like leaving my life in the hands of men who only have to qualify their gun handling skills once a year, much less to some nutbar with a grudge.

  • I am an Opera user, and I have been ever since the late nineties...probably as early as 1997.  I love Opera...I always have and, from the looks of it, always will.  It's here to stay, and there is no reason to pull the plug on it.

  • In further attempts to better waste taxpayer time and money, representatives to the U.S. House have proposed the College Football Playoff Act of 2009.  Hey, try winning all your games next time, and stop wasting Congressional law-making power.

  • Indeed, it's a huge load of baloney.  If you watch the news to any degree, you've been hearing this hokum for some time.  Yeah, it's actually several degrees worse than mere baloney, but I'll restrict it to that.

  • I was just walking through today as I went by to pick up a copy of The Dark Knight. While there, I decided to peruse the toy aisles, since I haven't picked up anything to give my little niece for Christmas.  But while browsing through, just looking at them, I found something that totally took me by surprise...a 25th anniversary version of the original Optimus Prime.

For some perverted reason, over the last few years there's not been a Christmas that has gone unspoiled by some tomfoolery. This year (2008), the flashpoint is apparently centered in the Washington State Capital building, where an atheistic organization placed a sign protesting religion in general, Christianity in particular, and Christmas expressly. 

It's a display that smacks of spiteful children railing about how unfair some fact of life is.

    Merry…winter solstice? I don’t think so.

  • I've been in the radiologic technology course of study for several months now. Nearing the end of this semester of school, I feel qualified to comment on what it feels like to return to academia after a long and, honestly, welcome foray in the real world.

  • Yup, that's a provacative title, but I can't think of any other explanation aside from abject ignorance. Basically, it boils down to three matters that, while interrelated, are still discernable and worth putting forward.  This is my mile-long post for the year, so hold on to your hats.
