I’m thinking of bear hunting.
Specifically, I’m thinking of hunting a certain area about sixty miles north of here, where a walk-in-only trail system leads down to the brushy banks of the Chulitna River. The problem is, it’s really brushy. The few people I’ve talked to familiar with this particular area have said that both blacks and griz are abundant in the area, and that you may well smell them before you hear them. So, I’m thinking the BullWhacker (Marlin 1895G, .45-70) is in order. The BullWhacker has been customized with a large lever loop, ghost ring sights and a forward-mounted IER scope – colloquially known as a “Scout Scope.” Seems like the appropriate piece for sneaking through dense brush after big, tough, toothy critters at short range. Thoughts?
Now that I’ve placed that before you all…
On To the Links!
“We’ve really got him this time!”
Yes, nuclear is the key to our future. I’ve been saying this for years.
What would you do? Granted state lotteries are essentially a tax on stupidity for the most part, but there’s probably no harm in spending a couple of bucks for the chance to fantasize about what you’d do if you got a few hundred million bucks dropped in your lap.
“Please, B’rer Fox, don’t throw me in that there briar patch!”
They’ll want to tighten security on this find. Contact Chief Inspector Clouseau immediately!
“Heterosexual men seeking to introduce themselves to women should be direct and maybe even a tad vulnerable, while heterosexual women approaching men can essentially say anything they want. “ No shit, Sherlock.
DeBlasio already did that job for you, you Bronze Age assholes.
Tulsi Gabbard is a sane Democrat, which is like finding a unicorn these days.
When seconds count, the cops are only hours away.
This Week’s Idiots:
NY Magazine’s Jonathan Chait (Repeat Offender Alert) is an idiot.
Yes, you idiot, that means we’re in a recession.
USAToday‘s Jill Lawrence is an idiot.
Slate’s Dahlia Lithwick (Repeat Offender Alert) is an idiot.
MSNBC’s Joy Reid (Repeat Offender Alert) is an idiot.
MSNBC’s Michael Cohen is an idiot.
MSNBC’s Zeeshan Aleem (I’m sensing a pattern here) is an idiot.
Robert Reich is still a sawed-off runt, and an idiot.
This Week’s Cultural Edification:
Mrs. Animal and I have seen the Blue Man Group twice, once at their regular venue in Las Vegas, and once at their traveling show in Denver. On that latter show they shared the stage with VenusHum, a ‘synth-pop’ band that saw some success in the early Aughts.
We saw this song on the traveling show; it was later released on the Blue Man Group’s 2003 album The Complex, and it’s probably the best cover of Donna Summer’s I Feel Love ever done; to tell the truth, I prefer it to the original. Anyway, here; make up your own mind, and feel free to let us know in the comments.
