Thanks for the link to Friedman - one of my heroes. Nobody has done a better job explaining how economic freedom (a synonym for capitalism) increases the likelihood of prosperity. I am a CPA by trade, but my real interest is economics. I have read Friedman with great benefit. I like a lot of the things that have been created by free men in a free market society: the XTP, the Gold Dot, Double Tap, Glock, Starline Brass, the 1911 and so forth. Oh yah and beer.

MODERATELY SIGNIFICANT 10-RING FACILITY ADMINISTRATIVE ANNOUNCEMENT

My hometown team is going to the Stupor Bawl. It is possible that over the next two weeks, my admin efforts may fall somewhat short of the sterling level that the 10-Ring rabble (pardon my redundancy) has come to legitimately expect from me in my capacity as Dungeon Admin Grand Poo-bah; such may be the effect of my participation in celebratory parties which, while not up to exalted 10-Ring standards, nevertheless have a hold on my attention.

Be assured that all logistics and admin remain in worthy (and undistracted) hands. As compensation for any possible effect of my distraction, the Dungeon embezzlement rate will be lowered to 38.68% until the distracting festivities are concluded. We thank you for your understanding in this period.

Unkle, it appears we are in that rarest of circumstances in which you have the advantage of me! What was the wager you mention? I am too distracted to dig back three years in the 8:40PM thread to discover it myself, so I will depend on your memory.

Listen up, you 10-Ring miscreants! (pardon my redundancy) I am about to commit a piece of heresy so profound that it will, no doubt, earn me a permanently assigned spot in the Chamber facility! Get a good grip on your beers.

I have discovered a use for the old slow 45acp cartridge that the mighty 10mm cannot fulfill!

At times, the burden of admin work supporting the 10-Ring facility threatens to intrude on my range time; such is the price of my position as senior LSMPS(BBB)DP. But I have made a startling discovery that ameliorates this problem condition. If I grab some 45acp ammo, then at the range I can accomplish significant admin work while waiting for my fired rounds to reach the target! Such multi-tasking would clearly be impossible when shooting the potent 10mm cartridge.

Hope my heresy does not severely traumatize the 10-Ring faithful.

I suggest you do a closer examination of his hand-loads. They may be five MOLECULE loads!

Your account of Jerry following his bullet downrange may have kicked off a useful train of thought in the Dungeon Marketing Operation. How about this: Handload CURLING! We recruit some of the shapely Canadian foxes we have observed on USN broadcasts of north-of-the-border Womens' Curling; could be a major 2nd-level draw in the 10-Ring marketing scheme of things.

IMPORTANT 10-RING FACILITY PUBLICITY ANNOUNCEMENT

We are honored to announce a special guest at the 10-Ring Stupor Bawl party: the legendary Black Beast of Aaaarrrrrgggghhhhh! This represents a considerable coup for the 10-Ring, as BBOA is quite selective in the special events in which he chooses to participate. We believe he is intrigued by the powerful 10mm caliber; it may be useful to him on the occasions when the little white rabbit is otherwise committed.

IMPORTANT 10-RING FACILITY ADMINISTRATIVE ANNOUNCEMENT

Listen up, 10-Ringers! Something good came out of the Daytona track patch fiasco.

The Dungeon Admin Crews were aware of my habit of getting useful work accomplished while waiting for 45acp shots to reach the target. Most of the Dungeon staff was watching the 500, and when the downtime forced its way into reality, they diverted the lost time into accomplishing useful 10-Ring facility administrative work. Our clutch diversion was so successful that we completed all necessary preparation for the February 31 10-Ring Board Meeting! So if you wacko 10-Ringers (pardon my redundancy) have any special request projects you would like investigated, get your paperwork to the Dungeon, 'cause we have the time this month to spend on special requests!

IMPORTANT 10-RING FACILITY ADMINISTRATIVE STATEMENT

Listen up, you miscreant 10-Ringers! (Pardon my redundancy) This is important! Hey, I wouldn't interrupt two weeks of intensive non-stop organizational !0-Ring debauchery for any old routine issue.

The Dungeon Scientific Analysis Operation has confirmed an intriguing aspect of the Chilean earthquake: mantle subduction caused by the quake has speeded up the earth's rotation! The complete daily rotation of the earth is now a full 1.25 microseconds shorter than it's pre-quake duration. This reduction means we now have less time each day for partying. So we must either 1) party hardier during the remaining time to make up the time lost, or 2) meekly accept the lost partying time and somehow reconcile ourselves to this lost aspect of Lagoon existence. We await your guidance on this important administrative issue. The full administative capability of the Dungeon is, of course, available to the 10-Ring faithful in this time of need.

On the brighter side, there is one piece of good news in this situation: early scientific reporting by the common-rabble news networks stated the day would be shortened by 1.25 MILLIseconds. Alert analysis work by your Dungeon Staff quickly ascertained the error, thus avoiding unneeded massive upheaval in the 10-Ring party planning process. The Dungeon staff is proud to be of assistance in this momentous administrative matter.

I think we should hold off on increasing the skim rate to keep up. One of the inebriated 10-Ringers (pardon my redundancy) just might conceivably sober up long enough to notice the increase. I counsel not getting greedy.

The complete daily rotation of the earth is now a full 1.25 microseconds shorter than it's pre-quake duration. This reduction means we now have less time each day for partying. So we must either 1) party hardier during the remaining time to make up the time lost, or
I used to have a roommate who once had a job in a very fancy restraunt (the type where the waiters get to act like rock stars and be snooty to the customers).
Anyhow, he made me a couple of really stiff drinks one time using a thick buologne as the base. I really got hammered twice as hard in half the time. Serously, it tasted great and totally hid the alchohol. If you've got a couple of milliseconds to make up on your partying, this might be the way to go.

Personally, I look at it like this is 1.25 milliseconds longer that I will live for every day I am around. Again, this may not seem like a lot.

Permit the Dungeon admin types to offer a minor correction. The reduction in the day due to the earthquake is 1.25 microseconds, not milliseconds. We don't want you to overdraw your life-lengthening allotment.

Yeah, I've got to agree with Engineer15151515 on this one. You completely discount the basic tenents of science. If Pavlov's dogs hadn't drooled, his gastro intestinal experiment would have yielded little. Instead, we have a pretty cool name for a rock band. If Albert Hofmann had worn latex gloves, would we have LSD? If Alexander Fleming had not had moldy bread, would we have penicillin.

I could go on and on, but my basic point is that slovenly mistaken mistakes can lead to SCIENCE. If Nanny had not accidentally substituted tomato catsup for blood during Count Duckula's creation, would we have the worlds first vegetarian vampire? I think not.

IMPORTANT 10-RING FACILITY ADMINISTRATIVE ANNOUNCEMENT (Well, actually a DUNGEON-oriented announcement, but we figured you wouldn't mind if we used our standard announcement banner. If it turns out you DO mind, we'll make it up to you somehow.)

Anyway, back to the subject. The Dungeon Financial Types have just learned that somebody worked over Bernie Madoff in the North Carolina slammer where he is spending the next 150 years. We are overjoyed! Broken ribs, broken nose, cuts; apparently, he didn't pay another inmate a debt. Wouldnt it be wild if he got smashed up over a couple packs of smokes?

Okay, so I was doing my Bernie Madoff homework and I came up with these gems (honestly, I thought someone had broken a percelin sink with his head, but NO....)

convicted Ponzi Schemer Bernie Madoff recently got into a very real fight with a fellow inmate over the stock market, .... The altercation, according to The New York Post, was over the state of the market and involved another older inmate, who left the fight "red-faced."
The shouting match got so heated that the inmate pushed Madoff, who shoved back harder with both hands, causing his attacker to stumble.

As the attacker tried to stand up straight, Madoff hovered over him red-faced and glaring,
So, Madoff shoved a guy and its front page news.
Bullman? Did Bernie glare at you?

Maybe you should go back to North Carolina and show him what the Bull can do. After you whup him, you can give your champion pig call. Yee ha.

Actually, the Saskatchewan case against Mongo has been resolved. They convicted Mongo on the moonshine smuggling rap, and sentenced him to be thrown in front of a bus. So they threw him in front of the bus ... and totalled the bus! They then decided to cut their losses, and reduced Mongo's sentence to community service rounding up ornery cattle in the Canadian outback. So things worked out okay.

Dog that attacked police car must attend classes

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — A pit bull mix in Tennessee has been sentenced to obedience training after his dogged attack on a local police car.
Winston didn't bite anybody, but he mauled a Chattanooga police car. The persistent pooch managed to tear off a section of the front bumper and damage the tires.
The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports that a judge ruled that Winston had been a very bad dog. He was sentenced to obedience and canine good citizen classes, and he'll have to wear a tag that says he is "potentially dangerous."
Charges against his owner will be dismissed if the classes are completed successfully.
Owner Nancy Emerling said Winston got out of a fenced-in area at a welding shop March 14

The Dungeon Semantics Evaluation Team is celebrating! We now have available a fresh new subject to supplant the overworked "10mm vs. bear" topic usually seen on Glocktalk.

The new topic: "10mm vs. junkyard dog"!

Let the discussion commence!

Bullman
04-03-2010, 02:10
I for one don't see that there is much to discuss. First we take the line from the song "Bad Bad Leroy Brown" where it says that Mr. Brown is meaner than a junkyard dog. The song also references that said Mr. Brown carries a .32 gun in his pocket for fun. If all you have to do to be meaner than a junkyard dog is carry a .32, most of the 10 ringers must be mean enough to scare the devil himself back to hell.

That's what I am thinkin anyway.

samurairabbi
04-03-2010, 02:52
Permit me the temerity to offer a tactical observation. Bad Bad Leroy Brown was operating ALONE when he was turned into a jigsaw puzzle with a couple o' pieces gone. Junkyard dogs operate in packs. How much difference might this make in the 10mm effectiveness during such a confrontation?

Bullman
04-03-2010, 04:18
Well, certainly had the ubiquitous Mr. Brown packed a 10mm he would not have ended up like said jigsaw puzzle. He most likely would have needed a good holster because such a worthy gun really does not fit in ones pocket. A 10mm is certainly more fun than a .32, at least I think so.

When it gets right down to it I think Mr. Croce was wrong in his opinion that Mr. Brown was as mean as a junkyard dog, I just don't see it. He most certainly would have re-thought his choice in sidearms had he been. Likewise, what does that say about the inhabitants of the 10ring facility? Are we all that mean? If so, why is this such a happy place? Does being that mean make one ultimately a nicer person? ahhhh, the duality of it all. I need a drink.

Bullman
04-03-2010, 04:20
Furthermore, if a junkyard dog is only mean enough to carry a .32, then a junkyard dog really doesn't stand a rats chance in the world, because there are certainly meaner creatures about.

Well, certainly had the ubiquitous Mr. Brown packed a 10mm he would not have ended up like said jigsaw puzzle.
The Dungeon Historical Research Division chimes in to point out that Mr. Brown was at a significant disadvantage in possibly packing a 10mm for his personal protection: the 10mm did not exist at the time of his unfortunate rearrangement.

Hope we're not guilty of nit-picking.

That reminds me that I need to get the trouser store for some new pants. I managed to do the "IDPA crotch split" at last week's match. The split was of the full-frontal variety. One should not try to stuff five G20 mags in one's front pocket (long story as to why) and then crouch behind cover.

Glad I had some thermals on underneath cause the bits and pieces would have been a bit breezy.

But as you pointed out the old King Kong was beaten by a biplane and wouldn't be able to stop a jet from hitting the World Trade Center. Still, to get back on topic as we try to estimate how tough Leroy Brown really was, I present this graph.

I apologize for this interruption of the standard-issue 10-Ring raucous inebriated revelry, but the Dungeon Thematic Apperception Establishment has raised an interesting philosophical issue.

If a 10mm shooter loads 10mm cartridges so light that they become ballistically inferior to a standard-issue .40S&W load, then what level of intra-organizational disgrace accrues to that 10mm shooter? The DTAE, of course, has it's opinion on this issue, but we figured we would check with the exalted 10-Ring membership, given the subtly nuanced importance of this particular issue.

Since you'd have to screw your reloads up pretty bad to do that I'd say a good dose of public humiliation would be in order.

I now defer to the wisdom of professionals.

The 10mm is an inherently accurate cartridge, routinely giving ten shot groups of under one inch here in the Sierra test range. With the energy levels available in full power loads, the 10mm is quite capable of cleanly taking deer and boar sized game with proper shot placement.

We have found the .40 S&W to be an accurate cartridge, but not quite capable of producing the incredible groups so frequently seen in the 10mm Auto.

I apologize for this interruption of the standard-issue 10-Ring raucous inebriated revelry, but the Dungeon Thematic Apperception Establishment has raised an interesting philosophical issue.
Might I suggest renaming it to Dungeon Apperception Thematic Establishment so you could have a cooler acronym.

Another alternative arrangement sounds to much like insect repellant to be used: Dungeon's Established Apperception Thematic = DEAT

Bullman
04-13-2010, 12:37
Philosophical issues aside, lets talk about the real issue here, safety and possible world destruction. You take a cartridge like the 10mm and underpower it, then set the thing off it is going to start sucking up power from the surrounding area to make up for this loss. It could easily collapse the surrounding area into a black hole, and then things really start to suck, no pun intended. Fiddling around with the power levels should always be done in the upward direction.

Such a disaster is easy to avoid. When such a mutant underpowered 10mm round is fired, immediately fire a full-powered 10mm round. This action will restore the energy balance of the universe, prevent the formation of a worrisome black hole, and allow the Lagoon partying to proceed unabated.

Actually, getting the whole collective drunk is not really within Dungeon jurisdiction. Most alcohol-related matters are covered by the 10-Ring faithful; the Dungeon types handle only admin and logistics aspects of this most important activity within the 10-Ring Resort Facility.

Our Dungeon specialty is getting the Borg Collective bogged down in dull boring administrative detail, and we believe we excel at this capability. As evidence supporting this claim, the Borg normally defer to our judgment for all investment and cash-flow activity, even though they are aware that we are gracefully but vehemently embezzling our cut of their take! Such a position within the collective must be earned!

While it's true that surface-grown Morrels are only a 2-5 day growing season, the Dungeon variety have a MUCH longer harvest cycle.
This is due to the use of certain fermented by-products of "N"Sweat Lager production & the professional efforts of our own Engineer151515. Of course, using TARDIS to extend the season helps also.

10mmmofo,

We can excuse ignorance of a subject, but does the term "Time Lord" mean anything to you ?

I beat one severely in a game of Baccarat, a game of chance from a time long before the high-rollers of today & their silly little game of "Tejas hold'em".
Once the favored high stakes game in places such as Monte Carlo, Havana (pre-Castro) & Bombay.
THAT is how I have in my posession, TARDIS.
(Time And Relative Dimensions In Space)
Far more than just a "time machine", but it must be used in a responsible manner & MUST NOT be used to change history, lest the Inter-Dimensional Council of Time Lords remove it from my posession; I would also be subject to whatever penalty/sentence the Council chose to impose on me.
It's most common usage since in my care, has been Inter-Galactic shopping trips by susan28 & G 33, two of our esteemed (and lovely) female cohorts.
Since we here at 8:40 PM use Inter-Galactic credit units for outside business functions, currency is no problem for the "girls"; They are provided with my personal credits card, much as a doting uncle would entrust a favorite niece with a VISA on a trip to Bloomingdale's.

One other note.......your "Nom de Screen" contains a spelling error:
You should be 10MMmofo.
10MM is always capitolised, much as any other royal title.

BTW, in my interplanar travels, many a phenomenon described as TARDIS has had the misfortune of crossing my path.... The reason I correlated this one with the one from three life steps ago, was that my previous TARDIS encounter in fact was a Natty Light dispensing machine, built on a planet I choose to not disclose (for the sake of all of you) 40,543 years in the future. And it ate the only yen left in the universe. I'm sure you can all understand my apprehension and/or ignorance!

One other note.......your "Nom de Screen" contains a spelling error:
You should be 10MMmofo.
10MM is always capitolised, much as any other royal title.
Unkle, there is one special procedural consideration to the capitalization requirement. If 10MMmofo is working undercover, then the lower case 10mmmofo becomes acceptable. Keeping a low profile during undercover work is important.

That is sort of a self imposed "Look at ME".....
Any time that 10MM is NOT capitalized, it appears "suspicious".

A worthy philosophy indeed, Unkle! The LSMPS(BBB)DPs respect this kind of discerning outlook on so important a semantic nuance, for we too have such a selective outlook on certain subjects. For example, during the nightly count of the take from the 10-Ring Resort activities, we will orient all currency in the same direction before embezzling our cut off to our island accounts. Subtle detail is important!

I think our filters are the only things that keep our view of the world from fracturing. Cling tightly to your paradigms. They seem to be the only things that give the universe a reasonable feeling of order.

Gracefully phrased! It also brings to mind what I call the "First Law of Wing-Walking": Don't let go of what you got hold of, until you got good hold of something else!

We all know what happens if the something else you get hold of is only your own butt. :supergrin:

Say, do you mind if I paraphrase your last couple of witicisms in my upcoming book?

Go for it! Don't worry any about paying royalties; we'll just embezzle our usual cut out of the sales proceeds.
