I knew my aluminum ladder was getting a little iffy. It bent and collapsed under me. Right now I'm taking a break to nurse my wounds. thumb down

Oh heck! Sounds like someone needs some OSHA safety training... Laughing Falls are the #1 cause of work site injuries.

In younger days on two of my ships, my collateral duty was Safety Officer. Received Navy-wide awards. Too bad I didn't remember something I used to live by. "When doing a job, imagine what the worst possible thing to happen would be, and then look for ways to lessen the risk." On the flip side, at least I got a chance to work on my first aid skills.

Well there's your first mistake right there. You can't let women around when you're working! Plus, how's the supper going to be ready when she's hanging around what you're doing??? Mr Green

AAAAH!   Getting shot at is easy.


I can show you how to do it in an afternoon.

This is Michigan's reciprocity map from my "Legal Heat" phone app Philip. I think the question begs to be asked, "do ya feel lucky punk?" She's covered in the Carolinas.

Now of course when I say all that kind of stuff at home or church, I'll do it with a little crooked smile awaiting the reaction that it will provoke. I love seeing the reactions on the ladies faces when it registers what I just said. That's when the daggers start shooting out of their eyes, and I'm filled with so much joy that I was able to get another person's goat!

Early this morning, one of the Americans who stopped the Muslim terrorists on the French train was stabbed multiple times. He's in a Sacramento hospital in critical, but stable condition. Prayers for him. If it was a retaliatory attack, stand by.

I just read a report (posted by a national news service 17 minutes ago).  It states that it does not appear to be related to the incident on the train or as an act of retaliation.

This is by no means a judgement of the victim nor a professional Intel Assessment, but as a generalization:

It states that he was at a bar with friends, an argument ensued, & went outside the bar where he was stabbed.   Just knowing young men in general (and Service Members in particular), they sometimes go to places where the danger is higher than the General Public.

As a cop, I often said that it is not always what you do, but often where you are, and who you are with.  I arrested many people at taverns, but never arrested a single person at a church (and the section of Milwaukee where I started as a Patrol Officer had 112 churches and 114 taverns: pretty even odds).

Well the washing machine finally had enough today. It'd been sounding bad for awhile, but finally called it quits today. Was chatting with one of the associates when we went to the local Lowe's to pick up another one tonight about how my parent's washer and dryer lasted my entire childhood while this last one we had only lasted a little over five years. He chuckled at that because he sees it all the time. If it's not the mechanical components, then it's a computer board that goes out and it costs almost as much to replace those as does a new unit. Just another disposable product in our culture. Seems like that's the way of everything now...

At least in the short term. That's why everything is outsourced to foreign countries. In the long term it ends up hurting us.

So on average each church owned 1 tavern...?

I miss the days of .22 bullets being super cheap. The .22 is a fun gun to shoot, but now you think about every shot so you don't deplete you stock too quickly instead of just going to buy another brick at walmart.

I still don't understand why the prices went up so high on them. Anyone know? (Definitively)

Yup!  When I was a kid, Winchester .22 LR were 78 cents per box at the Western Auto Hardware Store.

If the Internet Discussions on this subject were printed, they would take Reams of Paper.

The Long & Short of what they have come up with was that the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan depleted military stocks of ammunition.  Because National Defense is Priority #1 with ammo manufacturers, they converted to using their facilities for this.  

Then Obama started pushing for Firearms & Ammo Bans.  Firearms Owners started to get concerned.  They had been happy to have 2 boxes of ammunition on the shelf, but with Obama's threats, they wanted to have a year (or two) worth of ammunition available.  Because they don't trust the government, they feel that they must have their own stock, because they feel that the Government can control the manufacturers and stores. This dried up the normal stock of ammunition in the store, and made a self-fulfilling prophesy.

The manufacturers COULD have opened new plants and expanded existing facilities, but WHEN the current panic is over and everyone has a year, or two, or three of ammunition & they go to using up their hoards, rather than purchasing, the manufacturers are stuck with idle facilities, machinery, and personnel that still must be paid for. 

They are electing to play it safe.  They are having their employees work overtime, but they are not going to invest in facilities or personnel that they will still have to pay for when the current situation is over (can you say "Republican President?") and the people are no longer concerned about being able to obtain ammunition at the store.
