Apropos of nothing in particular, a strange tale from NBC news.

  3. Hey Harry,

    (captaincrunch)

    I admit I did not watch the video. I fear I would get sick to my stomach and expel my Coors Beer.

    I thought they (NBC News) were going to keep Brian Williams???

    I did not know they hired 'George Nory' as the new NBC News anchor. Gee Whiz I cant wait for the 'latest alien abduction involving Bigfoot, Easter Island and how Marlyn Monroe was the sniper in Dallas that killed JFK while Elvis and Amelia Earnhart were operating a time machine filled with CIA remote viewers having out of body experiences.

    1. It was an interesting video. There's a lot of evidence that reincarnation is an actual phenomenon, though it's not something I have much more than incidental interest in.

    2. Hey Captaincrunch, I swear last night in my back yard there were little green men unloading crates of Bigfoots from their flying saucer. They said they were headed your way in Texas but their pitot tube froze up in the cold weather and it messed up their warp drive gyros and since the magnetic storms on the sun messed with their GPS anyhow they figured they better do an emergency landing and sort things out. I helped them move the spacecraft in to my barn and we lit the wood stove and had a nice chat while they thawed out the pitot tube and de-scrambled the phase modulators on their nav equipment. They just reloaded the crates Bigfoots and filed a flight plan from KPWM to DFW and you can follow them on Flightaware as soon as they get their departure clearance. ;-)

      That was not bigfoots but illegal aliens being unloaded by the Border Patrol (little green men) and they were being transported to a welfare office.

  4. Hey Harry,

    I noticed that photo to the right that shows what I guess is you Harry and a Marine with a wonderful M-14 like the one I used on the boat a thousand years ago.
    I got a M1A but it lacks the forged receiver and TRW bolt that the older ones have and the original mil issue are the classic's I think.
    I have no desire to own a class three M-14, but I would like to own one of the early semi-auto M1A's with choice receiver, bolt and USGI parts.

    1. That's the M14 in the configuration issued to snipers. A more sophisticated version of the weapon is still in use today, and we supplied several thousand of them to the Israeli Defense Forces. The rifle was / is semi automatic so maybe some day when Israel phases them out you can get one surplus. A big lot of Israeli Browning High Powers just came into the country when they were phased out as police issue over there.
