Google maps has pac-man feature now, just in time for April Fools (last year they did a pokeman thing). You do need to be centered on a place with "enough" roads, recommend no dead-ends or else you're ghost bait. Then click on on the pac-man thing in the lower left.

Nope, Jeff, can't agree, gun nut that I am. A single shot 249 is just a very heavy M4, INMHO.

Agree but one thing I do like about it - it's belt fed :guns: :guns: :guns: :monkey:

It would be fun to try once but not worth buying IMHO

All of my guns have a purpose. Ok, almost all of them do. The M249S would just be about the cool factor, and if I had a whole bunch of money burning a hole in my pocket... I'd buy it.

On another note: it may come in handy in the upcoming zombie apocalypse assuming one has access to a machine shop. I'm just sayin'...

Are you kidding me? Dehydrated booze, just add water!
http://finance.yahoo.com/news/powdered- ... 21481.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) -- The creator of powdered alcohol is furiously trying to fend off efforts to ban the product in Maine and across the country before it even hits stores.
After winning federal approval last month, Palcohol founder Mark Phillips is preparing to soon begin selling the powder, which makes vodka and rum drinks or cocktails when mixed with water.
...
Palcohol will come in small pouch that's equivalent to one shot of alcohol. By adding water, juice or soda, one can make vodka or rum drinks. Adding water to the cocktail versions makes a Cosmopolitan or margarita. A lemon drop flavor has yet to gain federal approval.
That's awesome :lmao:

You just found out about this? A Russian buddy of mine told me about this stuff over a year ago.


Lots of potential here.

I thought about something like that, but in capsules, a few years back. Too bad I don't know any science ;) Huge potential, lots of money, and I'm sure many, MANY disasters waiting to happen.

I was just talking to a friend about skydiving & one of the things he said, "It's safer than motorcycle riding, it almost never goes wrong!"

"Almost never goes wrong..." :lmao:
My reply, "And if it does, you'll only care for a few seconds."



"Almost never goes wrong..." I still can't believe he went there :lmao: That needs to be a plaque in a skydiver's office :lmao:

I went skydiving once, back in the days before tandem jumps. They put me through about 4 hours of training on the ground. I recall that most of the training started with, "this will never happen, but...."

I stepped out of the plane at 3,500', on a static line, arched, counted to 5 elephant, looked up, and everything they said would never happen, happened.

My chute went up, twisted up and tied itself in a nice little ball. Just enough of it opened to send me into a violent spin. A little voice in my head, "if you panic, you die".

I recall every detail such that I could write a few chapters here, but suffice it to say I walked myself through every bit of training in a few seconds. I went through the process they called a "cut away", even thought it didn't actually use a knife. It's kind of important to get the tangled main chute out of the way before you open the reserve.

I got the reserve chute opened within about 13 seconds, and was under canopy at 1,800 feet. Yep, fell about half way. Decided skydiving was not my sport.

NOPE.
Never attribute to malice that which can be explained by stupidity.
The shooter will always matter more than the gear ever will.
Stop relying on others to do the work for you.
Shoot more, worry less.
