Not a golfer is he?

When you play with Mongo, he drops the ball where he drops the ball and if you have any sense at all your head will be turned when he does it. Especially if your name is Mulligan.

The Dungeon types wish to make a request for Penthouse cooperation in a project we are conducting.

We are running a presentation for a bunch of financial bigshots that have hired us as consultants. It would impress the hell out of them if we were to increase the embezzlement rate to 41.3% for the duration of this presentation. Don't worry about the longterm effect on 10-Ring finances; we will cycle the excess embezzled funds back into the 10-Ring coffers AFTER the bigshots have returned to their usual mundane existence.

If this temporary arrangement is agreeable to the 10-Ringers, please indicate your approval by ordering your next round of drinks by using some sort of obscene gesture. Don't worry; we won't take offense.

The Dungeon embezzlement gurus will stay FAR away from this one! If we embezzle from a PROFITABLE operation, the owners are mellow and don't mind the skim too much; in an UNprofitable operation, the owners get all bent out of shape!

A passable gesture. I must confess, we installed this "obscene gesture as approval" thing just to see how creative the inebriated 10-Ringers (pardon my redundancy) could be. There is a lot of Dungeon money riding on this issue.

by the way Geesie, your TARDIS key is now functional again, as is susan28's. Was able to sucsessfully play "Pin the tail on the Borg" at a setting of only 1/8 "throttle".
last lap put me to Alpha Centuri & back home here about 18 minutes BEFORE I left, with 12% more power in the supply than when I started.
With this, you should be able to complete your Christmas 1982 shopping by 1973 !
And my personal InterGalactic Credits card is in the gloverbox, next to 500 rds. of my own 10MM reloads, all for your & susan's use on the next shopping trip !

Excepting the AutoMag, 10MM is the "plus ultra" in an auto pistol. It is the ultimate in a CARRYABLE auto.
The .41 mag is a pretender, the .44 Mag is housed in the same size package(s) so there really is no useful place for the .41. Sorry, but fact is fact, even here in the 10-Ring !
Now if the .41 had some outstanding feature, then it would be useful.
Possibly as an overbore size for a Python, which won't take a .44 mag; Sort of a "40 for a 9" if you will....:rofl:

The version I recall is the reverse of this. In the early days of the 41mag, the handgun manufacturers took the cheap route of simply using the 44mag-sized frame bored to the 41 bore. The 41mag version of the 44mag frame was therefore HEAVIER than the 44 setup. This blew away the possible weight advantage of carrying a 41mag revolver. The 41mag caliber drifted into a tiny niche market because there was no weight saving in carrying that caliber.

Permit me to put your fears to rest. In 8:40PM, we do not conduct caliber wars; we engage in caliber repartee'. We keep the exchanges classy; if someone inadvertantly oversteps the bounds of allowable caliber insults, his OWN caliber adherents will haul him out back of the woodshed and work him over long enough to instill sufficient manners and appreciation of the 8:40PM style of doing things.

As you so astutely noticed, such dynamic tension does add zest to Dungeon activities.

Let's see if I've got this straight.
You and Uncle have shown your true .41 caliber feelings, so there is no chance of G33 taking you "out back" of the woodshed and working you over. But if one of her "OWN caliber adherents" were to go over the top with a caliber insult, then they'd still be in the running for an "out back" of the woodshed type dungeon session. :cool:

The creative factor was the reason for initial purchase. However, as we have learned, it is far outweighed by the stealth factor. If you feel this puppy up with some Baileys, it won't be long before the party is buzzing along (and people are looking for a refill).

Since the Wisconsin and Indiana legislative walkouts have made this sort of thing fashionable, the Dungeon admin crowd has decided to go into hiding until our demands are met. We are prepared to maintain this defiance until such time as we are good and ready to end our walkout.

Since traveling out of state would be a hassle, we have decided to hide out within the Lagoon Blowouts. We are confident that any sober 10-Ringers (pardon my pitiful pun) will be so rare that we will be able to pass unnoticed. Since we are still on the premises, food and libation service will, of course, continue uninterrupted; we don't like inconvenience any more than the 10-Ringers do!

It sounds like the kind of notice you'd find tacked on the front door of your workplace the Monday after AT&T bought your company.
And yes, doors would be padlocked.
Is there a story behind this post?

Not an interesting story. Not much truth to it. But persistent none the less.
Back in the 80s, I worked at Western Digital for six years, and there was this constant nagging rumor that AT&T was eyeing Western Digital for it's Intellectual Technology. It didn't matter who you talked to, they always mentioned this scenario where, the company would be purchased and the engineering buildings shuttered the following Monday. After six years, I had to snicker every time I heard it.

One time, I was doing a top down analysis where we developed a bill of materials for a P.C. to guestimate how much profit a manufacturer would make. This gave us an idea of how much margin we could price into our chips. I even contacted a Chinese case manufacturer just to get some accurate pricing. They asked if we were going to build a system for AT&T. I just about screamed.

So, it's true? The 8:40 PM thread is being acquired? Do you know who the buyer is? Are they going to keep us? Are they going to keep the time travel line going? How about the Dungeon? Is the Dungeon Admin crowd guaranteed a job? I'll bet they are. They probably got a sweet deal for themselves. How about us? Are we going to have to move? Or, are they just giving the rank and file the heave ho? :faint:

Which brings us back to the N' Sweat Lager logo we've been working on. Since the dungeon theme and the lagoon theme seem to run hand in hand, I was thinking of a circle divided by a diagonal line. Which picture would go on top (dungeon or lagoon)?

Will the dungeon picture contain mannicles? Will the lagoon picture contain palmtrees?

Now, it's 2011. Do we call it the tens? No.
Is there really a name for this decade?
Do we just go by the specific year until 2020 when we call it the 20's.
This time, it won't be the roaring twenties, maybe it will be the snoring twenties or the snowing twenties (depend on the weather).

A question worthy of consideration. The scholarly analysis crews of the Dungeon will take it under advisement. Of course, such considerations must be subordinated to the objectives of the current Dungeon walkout. Be assured that at the earliest possible moment after conclusion of the walkout, we will convene a Summary Plenipotentiary Tribunal for adjudicating this question.

Of course, certain Dungeon members, currently partying surreptiously in the current Lagoon Blowout, may be available for preliminary discussion of this important topic.

INPORTANT 10-RING FACILITY ADMINISTRATIVE ISSUE

Listen up, 10-Ringers! We have an intriguing pending issue.

Some Penthouse types have asked to participate in the current Dungeon walkout. They have an idea that "this is where the action is!" (or something comparable; the handwriting takes some effort to decipher.) This sounds good to us, but we now have a "qualification" issue.

We have set a prerequisite to Penthouse participation in our Dungeon job action: Penthouse applicants must fire a full box of 50 .45acp rounds at the underground range. Fair enough, you may say, but here's the catch: We have specified that the next .45acp round cannot be fired until the previous bullet has reached the target. Sort of our way of testing the Penthouse type's patience. Do you think that this extended task may constitute too onerous a requirement to be reasonable?

Edited to add: We are NOT imposing any sobriety requirement for Penthouse participation in our walkout. We think this a generous gesture on our part.

No doubt, yet another reason to own a Glock 29.

If a meteorite is about to strike earth, you can shoot it.
If a tidal wave sweeps over your state, er, uh, you can shoot it.
To hold off roving bands and marauding hordes, merely brandishing the weapon and identifying it as a 10mm is all that is needed.
If there is a magnetic pole reversal, maybe you could use your 10mm to shift the Earth's axis. It's complicated, but I've got a really great drawing around here somewhere (it involves a 40 pound return spring, a come along to rack the slide, and a careful aiming of the gun towards the North Star [although, some will argue that aiming at Orion's Belt will give a more efficient azimuth]).

I am pleased to submit this point of order to the Dungeon Rules Committee:

Is it permissible to get a running start when sending rounds down range and thereby increasing the projectiles' velocities by an amount equivalent to my running speed? My calculations estimate an additional 50% average velocity if I wear my best running shoes.

The process would be a follows:

Walk ten paces back from during line.
Point firearm down range
Sprint fast as possible
Release round when at firing line.
Repeat.

Thank you for the rules clarification.

You may be able to enlist the benefits of the 9mm ultra magnum shock wave in the effort to satisfy the aforementioned test while technically meeting the guidelines.

Note the following process.

Required equipment:
One firearm chambered in 45 auto
One firearm chambered in 9x25 Dillon
Fifty rounds for each.

Double hearing protection as mentioned above.

Step 1: send a 45 round.
Step 2: immediately following, send a dillon round
Step 3: observe as the shock wave overtakes the 45 bullet and accelerates it to supersonic velocities. The shock wave may cause said bullet to tumble, but experimentation with shock wave harmonics may clean things up somewhat.

Recommendations: one pistol in each hand, with the 9x25 in the strong hand for obvious reasons. Six mag changes will be required for the 45, and three for the 9x25 if a Glock is used. Logistics must be explored.

Whoops: turned to a new page. I did not realize that I had security clearance for such administrative processes. I will await to be contacted by the Dungeon discipline committee.

Did any of you chance to meet
A child named Goldie Pinklesweet?
Who on her seventh birthday went
to stay with Granny down in Kent?
AT lunchtime on the second day of
dearest little Goldie's stay,
Grandmama announced, "I am going down
to do some shopping in the town"
Do you know why she didn't ask
the child to come along as well?
She's going to the nearest inn
to buy herself a double GIN!

So, out she creeps and shuts the door
and Goldie, after making sure,
that she is really by herself
goes quickly to the medicine shelf.
There her little greedy eyes
see pills of every shape and size.
Such fascinating colors too,
some green, some pink, some brown, some blue.
"Alright" she says "Let's try the brown"
She takes on pill and gulps it down.
"Yum Yum" She says, "Hooray, what fun,
they're chocolate coated, every one".
She gobbled five, she gobbled ten (he said ten)
she stopped her gobbling only when
the last pill is gone, and there are no more.
Slowly she rises from the floor.
She stops. She hiccups, dear OH dear
She starts to feel a trifle queer.
You see, how could young Goldie know
for no one had told her so,
that Grandmama in her old relation
suffered from frightful CONSTIPATION!!!!!!
This meant that every night she would deal herself
a POWERFUL laxitive, and all the medicines that she had
were naturally of that sort.
The Pink, The Blue, the Green, were all extremely mean.
But far more fierce and meaner still,
was Granny's little chocolate pill.
It's blast effect was quite uncanny,
it used to shake up even Granny.
In point of fact she didn't dare,
to use it more than twice a year.
So you can begin to see that little Goldie,
began to feel a wee bit moldy.

Inside her tummy something stirred
a funny gurggling sound was heard.
And then, from deep within,
the ghastly rumbling sounds begin.
The rumblilate and roar and boom,
they bounce and echo round the room.
The floorboards shake and from the wall
some bits of paint and plaster fall.
Explosions, whistles, awful bangs,
were followed by the loudest clangs.
A man next door was heard to say,
"A thunderstorm is on the way"
But on and on the rumbling goes,
a window cracks, a lamp bulb blows.
Young Goldie clutched herself and cried
"There's something wrong with my insides"
This we greatly fear, is the understatement of the year.
For wouldn't any child feel crummy?
With loud explosions in her tummy?

At half past two Granny came in,
weaving a bit from the Gin.
But quickly she noticed the empty bottle on the floor.
"My precious laxitives" she cried.
"I don't feel well" the child replied.
"I'm really not surprised" she said.
"Why can't you leave my pills alone"
with that she grabbed the telephone and shouted,
"Listen, send us quick, an ambulance, a child is sick".
"It's number 50, Frontwell road,
come fast, I think she might explode"

We're sure you do not wish to hear about the hospital,
where the did a lot of horrid things.
With stomach pumps and rubber rings.
But let us answer what you want to know,
did Goldie live? or did she go.
The doctors gathered round her bed.
"There's really not much hope" they said.
"She's going, going, gone" they cried.
"She's had her chips, she's dead, she's died"
"I'm not so sure" the child replied,
and with that she opened wide
her big bluish eyes, and sighed.
And gave the anxious docs a wink,
and said "I'll be okay, I think"

So, Goldie lived and back she went,
first to Granny's place in Kent.
Her father came the second day,
and fetched her in the Chevrolet,
and drove her to her home in Dover.
But Goldie's troubles were not over!
You see, if someone takes enough,
of any highly dangerous stuff.
One will invariably find,
some traces of it left behind.
It pains us greatly to relate
that Goldie suffered from this fate.
She'd taken such a massive fill,
of this unpleasant kind of pill,
that it got into her blood and bones
and messed up all her chromosones.
And it made her constantly upset,
and she could never really get,
the beastly stuff to go away.

And so for seven hours every day
little Goldie is forced to stay.
Within the everlasting gloom,
of what we call the Ladies room.
There she sits and dreams of glory,
alone, inside the lavatory.
So now before it is to late,
take heed of Goldie's dreadful fate.
And seriously all jokes apart,
do promise us across your heart.
That you will never help yourself,
To medicine from the medicine shelf

Roald Dahl

And to think that people say that this thread is meaningless....

Just a bit of nostalgia, I was feeling sentimental.
