Meanwhile, in Croatia

I should talk to Joe about adding this to the kickoff.

Well, it works.

The Flickr app is hilariously bad, but everything else is Good Enough. Of course, I still hate soft keyboards – iPad is for browsing, not typing.

Prep work

I bought 120 rounds of ammo for Joe’s rifle, and he bought 500 for mine. Something is wrong here, I can’t quite figure out what.

Of course, the 120 rounds of 300 win mag were about equal to 500 rounds of 223 in terms of price.

(I agreed to loan my 223 to someone who didn’t have a rifle for Saturday, so Joe bought ammo for them. A few days later, I borrowed Joe’s rifle for Sunday, so I had to buy ammo for that)

Well, bye

I didn’t so much switch as Windows 8 is not something I want to participate in.
And so the conversion begins

That and multiple recent hardware failures caused me to re-evaluate spending time and money fixing my PC or moving on. I choose to move.

On the radio

I heard an ad on the radio the other day for “rimfire enthusiasts”; the ad was for Nikon Prostaff line of scopes. I’d never heard an ad for riflescopes on the radio before, but there it was.

It’s hard to overcome training.

Watch from 0:03 to 0:10 seconds; even though his car has no front wheels (having recently ejected), as the driver starts to slide into the wall, he’s cranking the wheel over trying to save himself from the impact. It is possible he doesn’t know the wheels are gone, but I think he would have seen them shoot off along with the sudden scraping noise.

Another day, another KB!

This one a 1917 Eddystone. This is why you wear eyepro. He’s bruised and mostly OK; the rifle rather less so.

Interesting write-up of a real, live alternate-history city/state right here in the US. Pretty cool idea.

I’m sure it’s a crime here, too

Riding in a car, driver waves gun around: passengers face arrest? Sure, it’s France, but I’m not sure the story ends much differently here. I’m sure they’d charge everyone in the car with felony jerkass, or they’d sprinkle some crack on everyone if it was an especially luxe ride.
