IMPORTANT 10-RING FACILITY ADMINISTATIVE QUESTION

We are now in the heart of preparations for the 8:40PM Tenth Anniversary blowouts. The Dungeon Logistics and Financial people have advised me it would be advantageous to all concerned, Penthouse AND Dungeon, if the Dungeon were to increase its embezzlement rate for the next month to 39.13%. That additional .13% may not seem like much, but it apparently has major tax deduction/writeoff implications.

I told them I would run it by the 10-Ring/Penthouse types to see if we could do the increase without anyone getting in a twist about it. We COULD simply have the Penthouse kick in the extra amount out of ITS funds, but then it would foul up the books and cause aggravation to EVERYONE concerned with the preparations.

We await your decision on this matter.

MinervaDoe
10-30-2010, 11:22
Yeah, I got three phone calls.
The first was that the card was maxed out and they wanted to confirm authorized usage for some "unusual transactions" (... something about a leather teddy with a couple of holsters built in).
The second call was to inform me that Mongo had been involved in some sort of ruckus involving the entire on duty staff of the Fort Lauderdale police department. I informed them of Mongo's inability to tell spring break from ... well anything ... and I gave them the number of the lawyer we keep on retainer for Mongo.
The third call was to inform me that Mongo had escaped (something about the entire exterior wall of the police station collapsing). I let the 3rd message go to the answering machine per the lawyers instructions.
Up to your usual Geesie?

Off to the future to cash in some long term municipal bonds and exchange them for gold. Buy low, sell high I always say. It seems that from 2012, through 2025, California will be giving out some unusually high interest rates (and gold will be selling for a rock bottom price in 2037). gotta go ....

Oh, like you weren't there. Right.
The alleged smiley face was a typical have a nice day style happy face, but with the smile turned upside down. Instead of the ususal "Have a Lousy Day" embellishment, you chose to use an expletive deleted which I cannot print here.
However, if I understand it correctly the Police Chief himself used that same obscenity no less than fifity times while filing his complaint. Our lawyer says he can prove that you were in Acapulco (which you will be once the Tardis can have it's spatial dampeners properly adjusted to allow for the obvious paradox that would make possible). Mongo will not be accompanying you to Acapulco.

A (sort'a vaguely) IMPORTANT PERSONAL ANNOUNCEMENT TO THE 10MM FAITHFUL

This afternoon I acquired another 20; it is a prime-condition Gen2, produced by Glock in the distant antiquity before I began acquiring the gear that began my continuing transition to full 10-Ring membership credentials.

In fairness, I must admit that my prescribed expenditure rate of my 45 ammo stock continues to fall below the requisite level set by Suze and Twee-Twee; I therefore remain subject to punishment in their diabolical Chamber Sessions. I guess there are some things you must simply stand there and endure if you wish to call yourself an 8:40PMer!

I caught a bit of anatomical luck in the Glock world: The original 10/45 Glocks (please note my correct protocol usage - 10 in FRONT of 45) fit my hand well. In fact, I have ADDED to the grip bulk with Hogue grips and Crimson Trace lasers, and it feels even better with the increased thickness! I therefore leave the SF's and Gen4's to those who need the slimmer grip.

I've recieved news from Mongo....he's got a 78 lb turkey for the Lagoon Thanksgiving Blowout.....I HOPE it's a turkey.....any reports of a missing Teryadactyal ?
Mongo ain't the greatest at specis identification ! Whatever it is, if Mongo has it, it AIN'T getting a pardon !
I'll get the grill ready.........this is bigger than the Weber can handle.

MinervaDoe
11-10-2010, 23:46
Remember, Mongo has a bad habit of starting to grill before the meat is thawed out. This usually results in what we loathingly refer to as the Baked Alaska effect; the outward appearance is quite Cajun-like, while the inside is still ready for a popsicle stick.
Encourage him to take the Tour De' Microwave before he scorches the outside of the bird to a cinder.
Oh, and yeah, as to the species identification, I understand that the closest Mongo ever got to a Wild Turkey, there was a shotglass involved. The word has it, this particular bird is actually a Turkey Vulture which Mongo snagged by covering himself with curdled milk and playing dead for a while. If this is true, I prefer mine WELL done.

If the bird does actually weigh in at 78 pounds, check the local police blotter to see if your closest ostrich farm has reported any disturbances. Your local armadillo willies may rent out a grill with adequate girth to handle it.

When Mongo brings home meat, it is always best to insist that it has some sort of supermarket label. He's big on fresh roadkill.

Yeah, for Mongo, anything short of a road shingle is considered fresh. It's no big deal for him, since he has an old boiler for a stomach, but I've seen him lay waste to more than a few BBQs.

One of the "side effects" of having a time machine is that you can read about your exploits later (much later). I'd hate to tell you how many of the occurances listed on the following web page were directly the result of Mongo being somewhere he shouldn't have been.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_unusual_deaths
Here are just a few of the food related incidents:


1135: Henry I of England (http://glocktalk.com/wiki/Henry_I_of_England) is said to have died of food poisoning after gorging on lampreys (http://glocktalk.com/wiki/Lampreys), a favourite meal
1601: Tycho Brahe (http://glocktalk.com/wiki/Tycho_Brahe), Danish astronomer, according to legend, died of complications resulting from a strained bladder at a banquet. It would have been extremely bad etiquette to leave the table before the meal was finished, so he stayed until he became fatally ill. This version of events has since been brought into question as other causes of death (murder by Johannes Kepler (http://glocktalk.com/wiki/Johannes_Kepler), suicide (http://glocktalk.com/wiki/Suicide), and mercury poisoning among others) have come to the fore.<SUP id=cite_ref-26 class=reference>[ (http://glocktalk.com/forums/#cite_note-26)</SUP>
1916: Grigori Rasputin (http://glocktalk.com/wiki/Grigori_Rasputin), Russian mystic (http://glocktalk.com/wiki/Mysticism), was reportedly poisoned while dining with a political enemy, shot in the head, shot three more times, bludgeoned, and then thrown into a frozen river after being castrated. When his body washed ashore, an autopsy showed the cause of death to be hypothermia (http://glocktalk.com/wiki/Hypothermia). However, there is now some doubt about the credibility of this account. Another account said that he was poisoned, shot, and stabbed, at which time he got up and ran off and was later found to have drowned (http://glocktalk.com/wiki/Drowned) in a frozen river.<SUP id=cite_ref-45 class=reference>[46] (http://glocktalk.com/forums/#cite_note-45)</SUP>
1920: Dan Andersson (http://glocktalk.com/wiki/Dan_Andersson), a Swedish author, died of cyanide poisoning while staying at Hotel Hellman in Stockholm (http://glocktalk.com/wiki/Stockholm), because the hotel staff had failed to clear the room after using hydrogen cyanide against bedbugs.
1923: George Herbert, 5th Earl of Carnarvon (http://glocktalk.com/wiki/George_Herbert,_5th_Earl_of_Carnarvon), became the first to die from the alleged King Tut's Curse (http://glocktalk.com/wiki/Curse_of_the_Pharaohs) after a mosquito bite on his face, which he cut while shaving, became seriously infected with erysipelas (http://glocktalk.com/wiki/Erysipelas), leading to blood poisoning and eventually pneumon
1975: Bandō Mitsugorō VIII (http://glocktalk.com/wiki/Band%C5%8D_Mitsugor%C5%8D_VIII), a Japanese (http://glocktalk.com/wiki/Japanese_people) kabuki actor, died of severe poisoning when he ate four fugu (http://glocktalk.com/wiki/Fugu) livers (also known as pufferfish). The liver is considered one of the most poisonous parts of the fish, but Mitsugorō claimed to be immune to the poison. The fugu chef felt he could not refuse Mitsugorō and lost his license as a result.<SUP id=cite_ref-93 class=reference>[ (http://glocktalk.com/forums/#cite_note-93)</SUP>
and in a brief career as a sound engineer, Mongo was involved in this one (apparently modifying an amplifier so it could be turned up to 11):

1976: Keith Relf (http://glocktalk.com/wiki/Keith_Relf), former singer for British rhythm and blues (http://glocktalk.com/wiki/Rhythm_and_blues) band The Yardbirds (http://glocktalk.com/wiki/The_Yardbirds), died while practicing his electric guitar. He was electrocuted because the amplifier was not properly grounded.<SUP id=cite_ref-94 class=reference></SUP>

True! Deer jumped in front of the car before he saw it in the fog! Got to love Louisiana weather it was freezing(OK 30 deg) then the wind changed around from the south and fog set in.

I had back strap omlet yesterday and this morning...Yummy, Yummy!!!

These were leftovers from the grill, which were marinated in Italian Dressing and grilled with onions. I sliced the meat thinnly along with the leftover onions & baked potatoe chopped, sauteed in skillet for a little while, added some butter and more seasonings and then folded in scrambled eggs cooked till done! My mouth is watering again!

Karen Carpenter (musician): Went on a water diet to lose weight and, as she put it, to appear more attractive. Continued to diet even after losing 20 lbs, until her death at the age of 32. She died of cardiac arrest due to anorexia and weighed only 80 lbs.

Attila the Hun (barbarian entrepreneur) died in the early months of 453 at the age of 47. The conventional account, from Priscus, says that at a feast celebrating his latest marriage to the beautiful and young Ildico (if uncorrupted, the name suggests a Gothic origin) he suffered a severe nosebleed and choked to death in a stupor. An alternative theory is that he succumbed to internal bleeding after heavy drinking or a condition called esophageal varices, where dilated veins in the lower part of the esophagus rupture leading to death by hemorrhage.

On November 26, 1956, Tommy Dorsey (trombonist) died at age 51 in his Greenwich, Connecticut home. Dorsey had eaten a heavy meal and began choking in his sleep. Dorsey customarily began taking sleeping pills regularly at this time, therefore he was so sedated that he was unable to awaken and died from choking.

James Emory "Jimmie" Foxx (October 22, 1907 July 21, 1967), nicknamed "Double X" and "The Beast", was a right-handed American Major League Baseball first baseman and noted power hitter. Foxx was the second major league player to hit 500 career home runs, after Babe Ruth; and, at age 32 years 336 days, is the second youngest to reach that mark, behind Alex Rodriguez. Foxx died in 1967 at age 59 in Miami, Florida, apparently by choking to death on a piece of meat. He is buried at Flagler Memorial Park in Miami.

I love Top Gear! I read somewhere that it is the top rated show in Britain. It has been in production for over 15 years? I had never heard of it until last year, when I saw a video of them "testing" a Ford Fiesta during a British military beach landing exercise. Still one of the best "car tests" I've ever seen!

A quieter San Francisco with no traffic congestion.
The way the 440 Magnum Charger pulls on the 390 Mustang on the straightaway.
The way the Charger literally torques sideways as it pulls away from the Mustang on the straightaway.
The way Steve McQueen overrevs the engine and totally floats the valves and maxes out the ignition when he is pulling out the stops on the country road.
Bullit green.
440 Magnum.
The jazzy 60s music in the buildup to the chase
The emphasis on the Charger's wheel man buckling up his seatbelt before he runs away.
Flashing back to 1968 and remembering actually getting carsick in the theatre during the hilly scene.

Or, you can diligently watch the chase scene as a homework assignment (hint, the Charger loses two hubcabs during the crash scene).

When they do show the ocean, it is correctly on their right. But there are other scenes which could not have been filmed on highway one. There is even a building which I am pretty sure is now near Santa Rosa (North).
That chase sequence constitutes Muscle Car's finest moment!
Yup, but there are a bunch of films which take a close second:

Vanishing Point
Smokey and the Bandit

The Seven Ups
Ronin

but wait, there's more.

You aren't missing anything. I live 50 miles form there and I've been there less than a dozen times.

Yeah, no kidding. "I have a surprise for you under my raincoat." Well, maybe if he put it that way, then the shotgun would be a welcome surprise. Anyhow, it reminds me of why I never go to San Francisco.

Blow through supercharger on a car with enough body panels replaced that it might be a funny car. On the otherhand, it comes from Bullman's personal photobucket account.

The supercharger is in the movie a faker of some sort, because your supposed to be able to turn it on and off, which in reality wouldn't work very well.

The front end was some sort of Monza fabrication of some sort and it had some spoilers and zoomies.

Australian in orign 'ey. That explains a lot. Just like their animals, their cars evolved in a uniquely Oz direction.

Yeah, the idea of putting a clutch pulley (like a cars air conditioner) onto a supercharger initially seems to be a big winner. On further analysis, the engine would either be overboosted with the supercharger on or anemically low in compression with the blower off. ..... probably both .....

Also....for the homework assignment:
Not only does the Charger lose 5 hubcaps, if you watch real close, it DOESN'T crash, but rather goes THRU the gas depot.
In fact, after the filming was over, both the Charger & the 'Stang were sold at a studio prop auction, and both exist in private collections (with documentation) today.
Also, the scene where McQueen misses the turn & smokes the tires in reverse......
THAT, kiddies, was an "OOOOOPSS" on S.M.'s part, he wasn't supposed to miss it, he overshot his braking point !

I had to look that one up.
When Sarah Palin decides regular English words aren't good enough, she'll just go ahead and make a new one. Here, Refudiate bridges the gap between "refuse" and "repudiate", to mean exactly what she wants it to mean.

I used to think orientate was only used by the U.S. military, but I hear it in common usage now. It still doesn't show up in a Google search, but I'm sure it's in a dictionary somewhere.

Perhaps we could include it in the Dungeon Linguistics Lexicon of Lexicons (DLLoL).

We will put it in the post-January consideration queue. At the moment, ALL the Dungeon organizational entities are fully committed to preparations for the 8:40PM 10th Anniversary blowouts. Proper planning for this important milestone takes precedence over dull boring linguistic investigations.

Another gun with one of those crazy low profile horizontal magazines.
And yet, when you were purveying the spartan gun locker in the Heart of Gold, you didn't see fit to leave a couple of those behind. It's okay, because Mongo refuses to shoot anything under .50 caliber. And why not, he is such a hulk, he can conceal a Barret under his "shooting vest" (actually a modifed canvas tent).

Yeah, Mongo's use of household items can be a little unconventional. He got one of my neighbors a little upset when he took one of the dual wheels off of his truck, stripped the tire off the rim and used the tire as an exercise device.

Mongo was surprised that the guy was upset since the truck still had one of the wheels left in place.

Just out of context a bit, but was the chap IN the truck when Mongo removed the tire/rim combo ?

Oh yeah. The guy was trying to drive away and he was in second gear before he realized Mongo had his bumper in one hand and the tire in the other. About the time the guy took his eye of the road, Mongo dropped the rear wheels back on the road. It left some ugly skid marks on the road and .... uh .... the guys shorts I heard.

The Dungeon financial and admin crews have been working to take the planning pressure off Eng and the production crew. Because of the close coincidence of BOTH the holidaze AND the 10th anniversary blowouts, we put through a supplemental appropriation for production expansion to cover these two sets of celebrations.

We Dungeon types express our appreciation to the Penthouse types for some unexpected assistance on the financial end of this expansion. We were straining to meet the production goals SOLELY from our cut of the take. The Penthouse types volunteered to assist in financing these celebrations. As an added gracious condition, they did not give us OUTRIGHT financial assistance. Rather, they allowed us a reasonable increase in the embezzlement rate, and assured us that there would be no detection of the increase by the otherwise financially myopic 10-Ring membership (pardon my redundancy.) We appreciate this courtesy.

I think the Penthouse types will simply play dumb (they're good at that) when it comes to noticing the upturn in the embezzlement rate. If they make a big show about noticing it, then they would have to formally admit they were sober enough to notice it in the fine print of the accounting.

Forgive me for interrupting the marginally coherent 10-Ring (pardon my redundancy) discussion of activity, but a physics/philosophical question intrudes on the 10-Ring sphere of influence.

Today I was blasting at the range. I was firing a 20 with an Advantage Arms .22 conversion installed. When I concluded the .22 series of strings, I immediately removed the AA top, reinstalled the factory 10mm upper, and fired a mag of 10mm.

My question: Might this abrupt transition from .22 up to the nuclear-rated 10mm rounds induce an undesirable rift in the space/time continuum? It would be boorish in the extreme for this LSMPS(BBB)DP to inconvenience any other members, Penthouse or Dungeon, of our industriously happy crew.

MinervaDoe
12-03-2010, 23:21
Reports of a 10mm causing an interspatial flexure are greatly exaggerated. The exact sequence of timing and firing required is not only difficult to reproduce, but it is beyond the endurance of mortal man.
Besides, the negative results of such an occurrance are greatly overstated. Where do you think we got kangroos, raccoons and armadillos from?
Evolution? :rofl:

It's also the same place that we Italians and our time travel machines come from. Not to worry.

IMPORTANT 10-RING FACILITY ADMINISTRATIVE ANNOUNCEMENT

It is one month to the 10th anniversary of the 8:40pm thread. Preparations for the associated celebratory blowouts is on track.

For those who may wonder about my use of the plural form "blowouts" when it is only ONE anniversary, we would remind them that all the logistics and planning sessions for the anniversary party have their own associated parties. We figure we can milk this thing for at least 7 weeks; maybe even longer, if the Penthouse and Dungeon can keep things at full rev.

Actually, Unkle, we Dungeon admin and logistics types adhere to the professional doctrine that production issues should NEVER be the limitation on the 10-Ring Resort level of partying! To allow this to happen would mean we were derelict in our duty to the 10-Ring partying tradition.

If we were to fail to fulfill this objective, we would be subject to the worst punishment it is possible to inflict on a Dungeon Admin type. We would be forced to endure the inebriated 10-Ringers (pardon my redundancy) comments of "I say, chaps, not up to your usual standards." THAT would hurt!

I figure differently. All of those inactive cells would be well protected by the glial cells which had grown into their neuro tansmitter circuitry. It is only after I had killed my handful of active (and lonely) cells would I, (by pure determination and the need to get more beer from the refrigerator) need to reactivate a few dormant brain cells. The retraining sessions typically involved much drooling and flopping around, but by jinkies, I eventually got a handful of the suckers working and functioning.

Gentlemen, as we enter into the Chili Conspiracy planning phase, be sure to know your scovil units; and, above all be sure never to touch your eyeball after handling anything hotter than a bell pepper. Now, POST YOUR RECIPES. :pepper: :tempted: :devildance:

Since I'm interested more in flavor than the incinderary effect, I stop at the level of habanero (scotch bonnets, sam ting, different geography).
I have been known to use 3 different types of onions, & the type of beer that goes into the mix depends on my mood.
Browning the first several ingredients in EVOO helps with sweetness, & I rarely have need to add salt.
The best pots start with about 2 lbs. of ground venison & then I add 3-5 lbs. of cut up chuck roast, starting with a roast & cutting by hand. No store bought stew meat here.....I KNOW what's going in my chilli.
Sorry, but the rest is top secret, not even the wife has the recipie. It dies with me unless I find a worthy apprentice !

But you have a suitable skill that none of us have.....you are able to CALL the ribs & pulled pork BBQ to slaughter.

You are a Champion at inviting the necessary participants !

Do you REALLY think so, cause I think those judges were smoking crack, or intimidated by the fact that I was the only armed participant in the contest.

Reminds me of one of the cars I inherited from mom in my younger days. A 1975 Mercury Marquis, it had a 460 with a 4 barrel carb, that thing would pass anything but a gas station.

I have had people grilling for me for much too long. I dont' run into too many opportunities where I can cook for just me ( I don't want to ruin everyone's meal) so I just need to practice more.
