One note, Unkle: the Dungeon Nihilistic Insurrectionist Aggregation may register its disapproval of fine beverages being wasted by pouring them on me ... (Rabbi, they don't really mean pouring them on you; that slang phrase just means you pay for the first round for the entire house) ... Oh! ... That's different. I will file for a supplemental appropriation with the Dungeon Financial Crew to cover the cost of that first round. The DNIA can return to planning its nefarious activities.

samurairabbi

It's actually a 153% discount. After the Dungeon takes its cut, that leaves a 110% discount on your end. The real trick is finding a Glock 7 that the current owner is willing to cut loose from; as you know, most the the Glock 7 supply is dedicated to beating airport security scanners.

You're on to something, Unkle. You can beat up ANYONE who has passed O'Hare security! You can then claim you were legitimately concerned that they might have one of those notorious Glock 7s that the x-ray machines cannot detect! The Dungeon Legal Team would have no trouble getting you sprung from custody in such a situation.

Oh, you had to remind me. I pitched my tent and waited for three days. We had to go to the restroom in shifts and then Unkle shows up with the Tardis right at the front of the line. That really frosted my gavorkians. If that wasn't enough, he woos away my Orion women and sticks me with Thella and Pursella. It's enough to drive a man to drinking even more.

As you get more time on this thread, you will learn the secret techniques to bypass such aggravation. Permit me to point out: I spent over 7 years as a 45-shooting LSMPS(BBB)DP doing degrading admin work in the Dungeon supporting the 10-Ring Resort hi-jinks. I was eventually able to acquire my first 10mm Glock, thus beginning my continuing transition to full 10-Ring membership. My advice: savor the journey to fulfillment.

ha, no, this was for the Flyers' Cup win , back in, i believe, 74. we moved to florida in 75 so i missed the second one, but the previous one was the first in years (or ever, i forget) so that might have been more spirited, but then again 2 in a row's a big deal too, especially for erstwhile league underdogs in a town like Philly.

i did relish the Phillies/KC series in 1980 with a co-worker at the stereo shop i worked at in college here in west plam beach, though, at his house among a buncha KC transplants. so i took alotta flack but had the last laugh!

the Flyers revelry was off the hook. my parents and i had watched it at my cousins' house in Bala Cynwyd (shi-shi area of downtown, my dad's brother was a corporate lawyer who'd kept the Teamsters outta Horn and Hardart's and was their fair-haired boy), and we had to make our way back to Darby with people literally running across the hoods of stopped cars at intersections on City Line, and our own neighborhood was about the same, but we were too busy grinning to care. what a night. gotta love a Sports town!

I found this interesting.

Thomas P. Crapper ... was a plumber (http://www.glocktalk.com/wiki/Plumber) who founded Thomas Crapper & Co. Ltd. in London (http://www.glocktalk.com/wiki/London). Contrary to widespread misconceptions (http://www.glocktalk.com/wiki/Urban_legend), Crapper did not invent the toilet (http://www.glocktalk.com/wiki/Toilet). He did, however, do much to increase the popularity of the toilet, and did develop some important related inventions, such as the ballcock (http://www.glocktalk.com/wiki/Ballcock). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Crapper

I DID NOT KNOW THAT!!

samurairabbi
05-06-2010, 17:35
The Dungeon Historical Research Division has chimed in with this detail:

When a British merchant provides items for use by the British royal family, that merchant normally is given the right to use the royal crest on the same items sold to the public, as evidence of his role as purveyor of items of sufficient quality to be worthy of use by royalty. Thomas Crapper, however, was denied this privilege, for the British royal family did not want its crest imprinted on a toilet!

the threads with garbled data in the topic list seem to be created from replies posted right as the system goes down for one reason or another.

The things that I put into my still and my compost heap are amazingly similar (except when I empty the waste out of my still and put that in my composter) but the scintilating clear liquid output of the still is literally quite breathtaking.

It's all very cyclical. My tomatoes and zuchinnis grow in a 50/50 mix of adobe and compost. Their flavor and size are legendary. Then, at years end, the plants go in the still and the used potting mix goes back in the compost bin.
Converting my 85 Mustang to use the output of the still dropped its quarter mile time by 1 1/2 seconds. Switching Uncle Ralph over to the snake oil brew from the still brought his blood pressure down to a healthy level, improved his complexion (and his breath) and gave him a vigor that nobody had seen since 1947.
Adding the mash from the N' Sweat Lager would take the still's BTU output into the quantum category. I am looking foward to it. Give me a couple of days to rearrange my growers pots so you can put the Tardis down in its usuall spot. I've got some nice Aloe Plicatilis surrounding the LZ, so don't come out guns blazing (thinking there is an alien infestation). It's just some funny looking fan aloes from South Africa.

:sharon:Vera seldom mentions the lagoon. Something about getting sand where the sun don't shine upsets her. Although she is one heck of a swimmer.

Still, if properly enticed, :drinkie:she can on occassion be surprising :ladiesman:. But for sure, you want to watch your Ps and Qs when you and Vera are communicating. She can be a bit touchy at times :nutcheck:. On other occassions, her behavior can be quite erratic :tease:and creative:shoe: . Good luck. She likes chocolate, fast cars, classical music, shotgun golf (trap) and bicycling.

VN350X10

Yep, I'm covered.

Now as long as she doesn't have any EXPENSIVE habbits.......:embarassed:

MinervaDoe
05-09-2010, 17:32
Nothing too expensive. An occassional bicycle tube or box of shotgun shells keeps her happy. She eats most of the stuff I cook without complaining and she's okay with plugging in a DVD and making an evening of it. She looks great in a pullover sweatshtirt and wears them frequently, but I think that's mostly because when she does her hair up and wears an evening gown, I lose the capability of speech and step on my tongue a lot.

VN350X10
05-09-2010, 21:18
bicycle tubes are in stock, as are factory loaded trap loads, buckshot & slugs.
I actually buy factory shotgun ammo, but reload anything that resembles a metallic ctg.
Haven't got room in the loading shed for a shotshell loader(yet!), but a Dillon or a PW is a definite possibility for retirement.

The idea was to keep the illusion of "competition" between the Island & the Lagoon, drawing in MORE tourist dollars in the process. We could have them compare the two sites; To do so, they would need to vacation at both of them....

You sure you passed "Bidness 101"?

Permit me to offer a philosophical consideration.

If a Lowly Dungeon Peon speaks a secret in the woods, and nobody in the woods hears what he is saying because everyone is jockeying for position in the next round of Lagoon parties. then has that LSMPS(BBB)DP actually revealed anything?

I had to look this one up in case it was the avacado anniversary or something.


Give the Gift of Gems
There are two specific gift suggestions for the 38th wedding anniversary gift - beryl and tourmaline. With the natural beauty and appeal of each of these stunning minerals, gifts will certainly inspire awe and appreciation in their recipients.

Beryl
It often surprises people to learn that beryl is actually colorless in its pure form. However, thanks to varied impurities, this lovely gem mineral boasts a variety of breathtaking hues. Following is a list of beryl types and their respective colors:

Emerald: this highly valued stone known throughout the world for its striking green color is actually a form of beryl.
Aquamarine: blue
Heliodor: green-yellow
Goshenite: colorless
Bixbite: also known as red beryl
Gold Beryl: golden
Tourmaline
Tourmaline is another impressive choice for a 38th wedding anniversary gift. This precious stone is referred to as the rainbow gemstone, due to its rare and varied colors. With its name derived from the Singhalese words tura mali, meaning "stone of mixed colors", it is prized for its unlimited color range. In fact, Egyptian legend states that as tourmaline left the earth's heart to journey to the sun it actually traveled along a rainbow, absorbing all of the colors.

So, we've got our twelvth anniversary coming up on the 31st (I'm a late bloomer).
Which one is the 10mm anniversary? Silk doesn't sound all that useful. We had a silk sheet for a while, but it always made sparks and was just plain weird.

12th Wedding Anniversary
Silk and linen are the traditional materials for the 12th anniversary.

samurairabbi
05-16-2010, 12:20
Here is the official 10-Ring list of appropriate anniversary commemoration gifts:

1st: Beer
5th: Beer
10th: More beer
20th: Larger quantity of beer
25th: Really large quantity of beer
50th: Massive quantity of beer

Hope this protocol clarification is useful.

Yep.

Haven't stopped by the 8:40 PM thread for a while. I'm glad to see the continuation of a lively chatter about beer and other libations. Very much Taterhead approved. Never considered the pairing of beer and time travel. Much to consider. Much to consider.

I was at Deschutes brewpub in Bend, Oregon one evening with my fine bride. I was enjoying a few glasses of something on nitro tap. I wanted to keep drinking those precious glasses of mothership nectar, but I was limited by the fact that I was getting smashed. Could time travel be leveraged in some way to enable a perpetual state of consumption, without walking on one's lips? Hmmm.

I'll ponder and return. Cheers.

Good question. I am not bound to a "no profit" use of the time machine as Uncle is with the Tardis. While I don't get carried away with my worm hole generator, I will use it to win an occassional wager. There was one drinking contest in particular where, I would emerge from the restroom, refreshed and sober (and out of another future reality). To say that my opponent lost "the bet" is an understatement. Since he could not understand how someone half his size drank twice as much, he also lost his breakfast, lunch, dinner and a gallon of beer after trying to "keep up."

As long as we meet Conservation of Mass requirements (cannot infinitely accumulate), Third Law of Thermodynamics (Entropy - you can't pee out a higher quality beer than you consumed) and you flush after you go . . . we most probably will not cause a time paradox that will destroy this universe.

Actually, Unkle, that 23% skim is a considerable reduction from our usual 39% cut of the take. In fact, at the last Dungeon financial symposium, we tried to figure out WHY it was set so low! Our conclusion: illicit Dungeon participation in the 10-Ring Lagoon parties is warping our perception of reality. But then, if we restored the full 39% embezzlement rate, it would just mess up the continuity of the Dungeon Counting Operation each evening! We'll just drift along with the status quo, and see how things work out.

The Dungeon Logistics/Admin people offer this advice: Turn the pool area on the lawn into a woodchip area instead of grass. Keep it a woodchip garden until the kiddy pool has passed out of family tradition. THEN, reseed the area with grass. This saves the problem of killed grass, yet still allows the small MinervaDoe to have fun.

It's interesting that you should mention Paradox. I was just reading in this months version of Time Traveller Today (printed in 2112) that the Beach Boys were actually well known time travellers and the lyrics "fun, fun 'til Daddy takes her T-Bird away" were actually referring to the potential calamity of a paradox. The magazine also mention this restaurant which existed in 1840 in Boston which served a most excellent bucket of steamed clams.

Yes, well to be sure, we must not let you get together with Mini Minervadoe. We already had an incident where the city block next to us disappeared. Then, we used the worm hole generator to go back in time and prevent him from having his failed experiment. Quite the series of unresolved paradoxes. I had quite a headache after that one. Not to mention staying awake for 72 hours straight.

Then, just for chasing the crows away, I ordered one of these from Amazon. Unpopped popcorn has quite the terrifying effect on these highly intelligent animals. My yard now seems to be marked as a no perching zone after only one experimental trial. Once I cut down our privet tree, it opened up our tiny yard quite a bit, and well, if nature abhors a vacuum, crows seem to abhor it even more and an immediate infestation occurred.

Small town in every respect.)

Eh, it was a first-car that i bought based on price and condition but tried to get something as fast as possible within those constraints and lucked out with a 71 fastback w/a 302 and some mags. But it wasn't my hotrod or my fantasy car. i got a 73 440 Magnum Charger when i had the money as i was always a Mopar type ever since being thrilled by Shirley Muldowney as a kid. My real hotrod was a 77 Yamaha rd400 tho.. chix <3 crotch-rockets :cool:

the 132 was thru the speed trap on a ROAD course, Black Hawk Farms is a 2.2 mile race course, & is the busiest track in the country. It's either got a sanctioned race, a club event, or is rented for private testing almost every day from April 1st to Nov.15th.
The guy that owns it has to schedule a practice day for his GT 1 'Vette if he wants to play !
Never looked at my trap speed in the 1/4, got off as soon as I cleared the lights. The 11& change was with my road racing/Solo motor. Was real fun on the street too !

My parents used to let me borrow their 68 Mustang (289 2 barrel). You didn't need a speedometer on the freeway. At 65mph, the steering wheel would vibrate, at 70mph, the vibration would stop. At 75 mph, the glove box would fall open. At 80, the entire car would feel unstable.
We have a similar problem in The Heart of Gold when we go to light speed. That's why we developed the worm hole generator. It's much less dramatic.

85 was a great year for the mustang. Great bang for your buck ( I could "bark" third gear). I had a dark blue one. Loved the 10 hole wheels and dual exhaust. The street in front of my house had "foot prints" from my GOOD YEARs.

I went from an 1970 R5 (purple) to a 1971 R5c (orange) before I achieved the pinnacle of perfection, the 1973 RD350.
Only a few of the Kaw 750 triples got to show me their blue smoke, all other bikes ate my dust..
Later I picked up an RD400 but quickly sold it to a friend because it was time for bigger bikes.

A friend of mine was always borrowing his brother's Kawasaki. I rode it one time. Scarey as all get out. At full throttle, everytime it got to 5,500 RPMs, the front end would start to lift. I just short shifted it, but after one trip around the block I decided to never ride it again. My friend drove it into a tree and spent a year in a body cast.

.... and somehow, we survived.

A friend of mine had expansion chambers on his RD 350. I'm not sure if he fu-barred his carburetor tune, but he couldn't beat my R5. Of course, my ports looked like they had been hogged out with a Dremel and the bike only got 18 MPG. Maybe that was the difference. :supergrin:

And now back to business as usual.

My first real bike was an 82 Yamaha 750 maxim. Rode it to Sturgis, didn't really respect the bike at all, I looked kinda like a circus bear on a minibike on that thing. I had a friend who had an 81 1100 Midnight Special and I talked him into a trade out ride. I learned real quick that I couldn't twist the wrist like I could on that 750, that is if I still wanted to be sitting on the bike.

Sorry about the interruption.

Bullman
06-05-2010, 00:56
I might need to access accounts payable, it may cost me a bit since I can't really take a file to the fiber optic on that sight. It's either that or resort to some.... well... extortion of some outstanding bar debts down at the south lagoon floating bar. Seems there was some uninvited .40 S&W shooters crashing the limbo semi finals, not only did they not pay their tabs, one of them was mauled by a member of the bikini team and she felt slighted when they didn't know anything about 10mms.

_The_Shadow
06-05-2010, 11:00
The bikini team should place them on a spit and roast them...we could hold them accountable till the debts are paid in full! A small precentage given to Bullman for bringing this extorted situation to the Dungon Finance Commttee! He could then get his sights fixed.

You could place a taller rear sight to make up for the front being too tall, but it would probably be easier to remove and replace the front sight.

That is a custom job, the guy that did the conversion made the sight as far as I know, unless he bought it off of somewhere. I am just 40 miles or so from his shop, a hop skip and a jump, just need to go down there. I should do more testing first, from a bench, so I can get a good Idea of just how low I am, or I mean how low it shoots:supergrin:

VN350X10
06-06-2010, 16:59
M.D. the only factory Rugers in 10MM are the BlackHawk "Buckeye" specials, made for Buckeye Sports Dist. in Ohio a few years back. They had a .38-40convert. cyl. The following year, Buckeye had a run made of .32 H&R Mag/.32-20 convertibles.....if you were on the list, you had a chance to buy the .32 with a matching ser.# to your 10MM.
I know 3 guys that have the sets, I have one of the 10MM/.38-40's.

The only OTHER Rugers chambered in 10MM were about 4 or 5 test bed guns, same frame as the Ruger .45's (which is why THEY are almost indestructible !), used a Glock 20(!) magazine. The bean counters killed that one, not enough potential market they said.....MORONS !
They worked fine, no durability problems(they ARE Rugers!) but the market boys lied as usual. Would have been great pistols.
Because of this, I've never had any qualms about shooting ANY .45ACP loads in a Ruger pistol ! (this applies to the older 94/95 ? series, not the new 3 digit series guns)

Does the 10mm have a moon type clip or does the round seat on the cylinder.

Bullman

It seats in the cylinder, the nice thing about a Blackhawk is you don't have to worry about ejection like you do in a swing out cylinder, just use the rod like you do with the rimmed rounds.

Yeah, now you're on the run. Not so fun to have the time lords show up at your doorstep.

My Internet routing shows up as a mongolian grand mother. Even the time lords can't trace it. I actually log in from various coffee houses during my travels, but my signature proxy server always leads them back to Mongolia. Once your Dungeon fees are paid up, you'll have access to the Proxy download. The default patsy is Margaret Thatcher and the Terms of Agreement require you to change this on first use (Margaret gets really pissed when Interpol shows up at her house now).

I'm reminded of the first time I went to a Grateful Dead concert with my wife. We brought along a friend of mine who just started imitating the dead heads as we walked through the crowd. Behind us, my friend was being the man of a thousand voices and saying stuff like, "Oh wow man, I took too much liquid wrench" and "check out the colors when I move my hand real fast man," and "ooooh, pretty rainbows." My wife had never walked the gauntlet of a thousand voices with us and thought she was hearing the voices of actual deadheads.

I'm sure if you just chime in with your own witty and irrelevant conversation, you'll be pleasntly surprised to see the dungeon crowd following your lead (without even knowing you were afraid to commit and jump on).

Yeehaw!!! Brazos!!!

IMPORTANT 10-RING RESORT FACILITY ANNOUNCEMENT

I thought I would pass this amusing item along to all the 10-Ringers. It is a side effect of the Helen Thomas "All Israelis should go back to where they came from" fracas.

The Concierge Desk in the 10-Ring Resort Lobby is being deluged with requests from Israelis to be relocated to the 10-Ring Resort Facility. It appears we have a considerable following among Israeli shooters, and they figure now is a good time to try for residency status.
