Best Slasher Film EVER

One of my students sent this to me. When seconds count and the police are only minutes away... who needs 'em?

Random Aircraft Sightings

So, it has been a couple weeks. There are bad days and worse days then days like today. Anybody have a 10KW/250VDC/900RPM Excitation Generator for an 1000HP/900RPM Allis-Chalmers AC Synchro Motor?

Anyway, while tearing the tunnel roof off to lift the generator out, two F-18A+'s flew in along with two Apaches. The Apaches were here for lunch. We'll see how long the F-18s stay. Oh, and htere is a Robinson R44 in there between the Apaches. Kinda makes em feel small and insignificant.

Slow Blogging

Not that I've been very prolific lately, but, next week is the Subsonic Aerodynamic Testing Association annual Meeting / Conference. We're hosting this year.

Saturday we have a Basic Pistol class, then Sunday through Friday is the SATA conference and then Saturday I am teaching Reloading Basic and Beyond the Basics. The last two weeks has been nonstop, cleaning, painting, fixing, cleaning, organizing and otherwise preparing for the conference. As well as prepping for class and working around Casa De Geek. If something really strikes my fancy or pisses me off I will post. Otherwise, I think I'll be a bit busy.

I've seen FUNNY and this is FUNNY

So, the Mrs turned me to a blog post with a video at I aim to misbehave. Before you go over there I'll confess I do have the Bonnie Tyler CD that contains this song. However, I haven't laughed this hard in a long long time.

After reading back on his blog a bit, I had to add to the blogroll. Cop who already served in the armed forces and is a fan of Fire Fly, what's not to like?

Call a spade a spade already

So, the murderer outside the recruiting office in Arkansas had "political and religious motives"? What a crock of shit. The guy was under investigation already for travel to Yemen and studying Jihad while over there and traveling on a Somali passport. He was a recent convert to Islam. Why can't the press accurately title this "Muslim convert attacks recruiting office ". Why is it that the "religion of peace" can't be named as the cause of this guys "political and religious motives"?
This politically correct BS has got to stop.

A Muslim killed American Soldiers on American soil!

So the later stories have identified the Muslim Terrorist as such. It took a while for them to get to that point though. Still, that fact that the FBI has been investigating this guy and his past travels and arrest shows he was a threat and should have been dealt with already.
