Saturday night, an important day

for studies once the days work is done

Friday, April 01, 2016

I shall try to keep the important stuff happening,

like the data dumps

"You can't do that without getting a warrant"

seems like a good thing.  Now there's another question:
The judges also accused Baltimore authorities of misleading the lower-court judge who had approved their use of the device, commonly known as a stingray.
Will said Baltimore authorities pay any price for 'misleading the court'?   The way a plain old citizen would?

I think Fireclean is making a big mistake here, both on general "Why stir up a mess that's not actually a big one?" terms and "You've never heard of the Streisand Effect, have you?"  Because this is going to get them a LOT of publicity, damn little of it good.

This headline brought to you by idiots who've never been hungry.
And their answer is 'we need to have more control over what and how much people eat."  Of course.

That's it for now, see you whenever there's time next.

The heater hose and coolant

are changed.  Only bad part was getting the old hose to turn loose of the nipples so I could get it off.

Yes, I know, shut up.

Couple of days delayed, but

another hundred rounds through the .22 conversion.  Zero problems of any kind.

I'm not nearly diligent enough about keeping count, near as I can recall that's about 800 rounds of mixed .22 through this since I lubed it with CherryBalmz, and the only failures were due to ammo without enough kick to reliably cycle the action.  More specifically  Federal Champion; it's quite accurate and reliable, but a bit light for this purpose.  It didn't reliably cycle things with any other lube I've tried, either.  Which reminds me, I need to see if I've still got any of Mr. C's Super Sekrit Gun Oil; that stuff is slick as the dickens, and if I've got some- later on- try it on this conversion with the Champion ammo, see if it's slick enough to make it work.

More detail on this, the conversion would not cycle enough to eject, let alone strip off the next round, on the first 3-4 rounds in the magazine, then it would have no problems.  Very reliably.  The pressure of the top round in the mag on the slide was enough to cause that much drag, then when the pressure dropped with less tension on the spring it was able to move all the way.

Because actual crime is apparently so under control

that all these agencies can spare all these people- including the SWAT weenies in battle jammies*- to deal with old, minor warrants.

Idiots.  Especially with crap like this included: ...who transported another suspect with them on the trip to deliver the arrest warrant that the detectives hadn't brought along.

Speaking of idiots, the DEA is screwing even more with patients in need of painkillers they don't approve of.

Boehner II- more often known as Paul Ryan- is being primaried.  Good.  I hope they kick his ass out of that office.

Yes, people are being screwed by Obamacare.

Well, Fecesbook was acting weird before I signed off a while earlier, and now it won't let me sign on: 'Your browser isn't allowing cookies'.  Except it is, and the only damned place with a problem is Fecesbook.  No telling what they've effed-up this time.

Be it noted: bloggage will be off & on, probably more off, for a few days; stuff to do, etc.

*I am so stealing that for future use

Part of the epitaph of Europe

if some things don't change:
Mr van den Boogaard is a Dutch gay "humanist", which is pretty much the trifecta of Eurocool. He was reflecting on the accelerating Islamization of the Continent and concluded that the jig was up for the Europe he loved. "I am not a warrior, but who is?" he shrugged. "I have never learned to fight for my freedom. I was only good at enjoying it."
And seeing he's gay, he won't even get the option of converting; they'll just kill him, and apparently he can't see himself doing anything about it.

More campus stupid:
“It is our duty to fight for our freedom. It is our duty to win. We must love each other and support each other. We have nothing to lose but our chains.”
Dumbass, you're a very privileged student attending a school that runs something like $50,000/year; any 'chains' on you are completely in your effed-up mind.

Apparently "You're guilty of cultural appropriation!"

allows assault.
And she DID commit assault.  And should be charged and prosecuted for it; her tender feelings being injured by someone's hair does not allow her to lay hands on them.  Repeatedly.

More demonstration of what 'Higher' Education means nowadays

...One highlight of Dean Nair’s capitulation was this:
However, today’s activists and other students are growing up in a wonderfully diverse, polycultural global society that increasingly acknowledges and embraces our individual “multidimensionality” as complex beings with many identities.
And he then goes on to whine about how someone writing 'Trump 2016' in chalk so terrified and upset a bunch of snowflakes that Something Must Be Done.  And We Support Free Speech, except when someone whines that they're damaged by it, in which case it's hate speech and can't be allowed, etc.

And over at Yale,
Max Stern, the lawyer for the expelled Yale basketball captain Jack Montague, has spoken out, announcing that he will sue Yale on behalf of Montague in April, and clarifying some details in the case, including a very surprising one: that the aggrieved female did not file the sexual misconduct complaint.
The accuser waited around a year to speak to someone from Yale’s Title IX office, but decided not to file a complaint with Yale. But the Title IX officer filed a complaint.
In violation of their own rules, it seems.  Sue their ass off.

The NYeffingTimes either lies again, or they're actually stupid enough to believe this.
The AR-15, which is designed to inflict maximum casualties with rapid bursts, should never have been available for purchase by civilians.
Of course, expecting truth from these people... I think the phrase in the Soviet Union was "There is no truth in Pravda."

The other day there was a story about a Russian troop who, cut off and surrounded by a bunch of ISIS fighters, called in strikes on his own position; his name was Denis Tukhmanov.

Tam pointed to this dry-fire practice setup,

and it looks pretty good.  Actually cycles the action, can do fast repeat shots, the works.  Lots of Glocks, some M&Ps, 1911s...  Right now mine looks like that last-months plumbing repair, but maybe down the road.

I'll go with pictures
