Catching up on my Breaking Bad podcasts, actor Dean Norris (Hank) says that MMA fighter Keith Jardine is the technoviking (episode 303: IFT); he says it in a way that’s either very dry or he’s being serious. Since I can’t decide, I edited out the clip for you use to decide for yourself (800k mp3); looking at Jardine’s photos and the (admittedly bad quality) video of Techno Viking, it could very well be.
I sent an email to Keith and his agent/manager; any updates will be posted here; the segment I’m hosting starts about 13:45 in.
For example, purchasing legally taxed products in Virginia (a low excise tax state) and driving them to New York (a high excise tax state) for resale creates an immediate $3.95 per pack profit margin. A single carton of cigarettes (10 packs) purchased in Virginia and sold in New York will yield about $39.50 in profits; a single case (60 cartons) yields $2,397 in profits and a single truckload (typically 800 cases) yields $1,917,600.
Detectives said one of the girls became uneasy as the boy kept playing with the gun. The girl, identified by the L.A. County coroner’s office as Alexis Wallace, stood to leave the room. As she was walking out, the boy pointed the gun at her and pulled the trigger, not realizing that there was a bullet in the chamber, police said.
When Gamble came across the bloody scene, she said, the boy was distraught, running around the room in a “chaotic state.”
“The gun just went off,” he said in disbelief, throwing the weapon onto his bed.
The researchers analyzed data on nearly 24,000 gun-related deaths among children 19 and younger from 1999 through 2006.
OK, not all at the same time, but still.
