UPDATE: I am glad everyone liked this.. I posted it in response to all the protests of the inauguration of G.W. Bush. As I posted it, the network went haywire, and I was unable to finish it! But somehow you fine people know just what I was thinking!

Death and Taxes...

If you haven't heard, "Survivor's" first survivor, Richard Hatch is in a wee bit o' trouble! Apparently, when he won his $1,000,000.00 he neglected to pay income taxes on it! Then he went on to "forget" about an additional $321,000 that a Boston Radio Station paid him! He has now agreed to plead guilty to two counts of tax evasion, but he still may see a little prison time, and here begins my problem.

You see, Mr. Hatch is GAY. And by gay, I mean homosexual. And by homosexual, I mean he (indicating Mr. Hatch is of the male gender) likes other individuals of the male gender. AND he is not a little gay, no, he is sooooo gay, huge gay, dare I say.... GAYnormous!

So, we send him of to the federal lock-up, and it's like a buffet for him! "All those lonely guys, always working out all the time... ummmmm! Oops! I dropped my soap, AGAIN!"

Let's send him to the WOMEN'S Federal Penitentiary, and let him bunk with Martha Stewart.

CORRECTION: This idea was stolen from Baby Chicken!

UPDATE: I have received a couple of emails accusing me of gay bashing, being a homophobe.. blah, blah, blah. Attention! Two of my good friends are a gay guy and a lesbian! I don't have a problem with gays and lesbians, I have a problem with Richard Hatch!

PIG Pics..

Since we are celebrating Sgt. Herbert B. Hancock's achievement, (Marine scout sniper, Company B, 1st Battalion, 23rd Marine Regiment,) of the longest US confirmed kill of the Iraq War, (1,050 yards,) our PIG pic is the Marine Corp M40 A3 Sniper Rifle.

These are individually hand made by the USMC Armorers at Marine Corps Base Quantico. So, here are some specs on this beauty:

  • Caliber - 7.62 mm NATO (.308 Win)
  • Weight - 7.5 kg (16.5 lb)
  • Overall Length - 1.124 m (44.25 in)
  • Barrel Length - 610 mm (24 in)
  • Barrel - Schneider Match Grade SS #73
  • Magazine Capacity - 5 rounds
  • Sight - Unertl 10x with Mil-Dots and BDC; specially designed for USMC
  • Stock - Fiberglass McMillan Tactical A4
  • Max Effective Range - 915 m (1000 yd)
The M40 has always been based on the tried and true Remington 700 Short Action (as opposed to the Long Action in the M24.) These actions are all chambered in 7.62x51mm NATO and are house tuned by Marine armorers. The trigger guard assembly is manufactured by the DD Ross Company, though several M40A3s use Badger Ordnance trigger guards.
The action is bedded with aluminum pillars, and the barrel is free floated..

I think I need to go take a cold shower..

Pin-Up Pics..

So I decided to post something a little bit different today for my Pin-ups.. I present to you, The Women of Afghanistan - Beneath the Burka!

This is Fatima. Her Turn-ons are sewing circles and listening to Radio Free Afghanistan!
Turn-offs: Spitting camels and being sold into marriage. Her life's ambition is to live to the age of 40!

Last is Tahmeena. Tahmeena's Turn-ons are: The Pilgrimage to Mecca and newborn kittens
Her biggest Turn-off is death by stoning. Tahmeena says "I'm told I look like Hillary Duff!"

At least it's not Hillary Clinton!
Sondra K has been posting these, so I thought I'd steal 'em from her! Go see the whole series at Jest Magazine.

Damn guy's. I had no idea the women were busting out like that over there! No wonder the news media has been telling us it's horrible, they want to keep 'em all for themselves! Well, personally, I'm booking my ticket NOW! Afghanistan, here I come!

On a more serious note, it's nice to see more current pictures of girls with curves, no twigs! Thanks Sondra K! I owe ya one!

Work Today..

Yup, I get to work today. Nice thing about working on Martin Luther King Jr. Day? It is a recognized holiday! So, we will be giving the laz-i-boy recliners a real workout today.

Pin-up pics will be posted later today, I think you'll like 'em. I went that EXTRA mile for you today.

Now, the bad news. (For me, not you)
I got to work this morning, got out of my rig, grabbed my bag, and noticed a strange sound. Yup. Rock punched right through the tread of the passenger side rear tire. It is, as I write this, flat as a pancake in the parking lot.
Good News.
I was driving, not the lovely wife, (Baby Chicken). Although I have every confidence in her ability to change a tire, I don't want her to! After all, she's just a little Baby Chicken!

So, enjoy your Monday... I know I will, (Now where is that tire jack??)

Longest Shot..

For those in the audience who have not shot competitively, were not in the Marines, or have studied history in the "Public Education System" I have a history lesson, and story for you.

In 1966 during the Viet Nam Conflict, a young Gunnery Sergeant by the name of Carlos Hathcock II made a 400 yard shot on an enemy Guerilla who was lying in wait for a group of Marines. His actions that day probably saved the lives of at least a few of our Devil Dogs. Gunny Hathcock would go on to win the Silver Star, and ended his career with 93 confirmed kills, including one at 2,500 yards.

Forward 39 years. Fallujah, Iraq. Sgt. Herbert B. Hancock, a Marine scout sniper with Company B, 1st Battalion, 23rd Marine Regiment, made the longest confirmed kill of the Iraq War, 1,050 yards. Just for those who are math impaired at home, that's 3,150 feet, or roughly 10 football fields. He made this shot while insurgents were shelling his compound. He used a M40A3 with a twenty power scope.

Why the history lesson? Both G. Sgt. Carlos Hathcock and Sgt. Herbert Hancock, used the M40. The M40 is a Remington 700 short action, married to a Schneider Match Grade barrel. This is paired with a kevlar stock, to prevent the shrink/swell that can sometimes happen with wood stocks. Yummy...

I think I see another PIG pic coming on..

Congrats Sarge! Thanks for all you do over there!
