Happy Father's Day to my friends who are responsible dads raising pretty cool kids.

And for those who aren't fathers, let's hoist a frosty beverage to having zero kids and three money. ;)

Oh, look. A scholarly analysis of Jay-Z's 99 Problems from a Fourth Amendment legal perspective:

No, seriously.

Yep, that'll work.

Sometimes at work, I listen to the fire department channels when something interesting something with the potential to escalate is happening. Today, there was a minor structure fire.

Ladder 2: Please advise the homeowner that we're closing the door and leaving the cat inside.

Command: Is the cat accounted for?

Ladder 2: That's affirmative. It's under the bed. It doesn't like firefighters.

So there's this video making the rounds of the intertubes. I'm not gonna link to it because it creeps me the heck out and I'm afraid it might crawl into the rest of my blog. It's a short clip of a ball python opening a door.

A motherfucking snake. Opening. A motherfucking door.

[ profile] elalyr emailed it to me, guaranteeing I won't be sleeping tonight. As I advised her, I think the only possible response is


(What is the sound of double magazine dump from a Saiga 12 for one thousand, Alex. Because the first eight rounds of buckshot might not be enough.)

[ profile] elalyr and I have been working our way through Top Gear on Netflix. A couple of nights ago, we watched the Winter Olympics special, which was eighteen shades of hilarious. The biathlon event that substituted SUVs for skis got me thinking, though. America loves guns. America loves motor sports. Why haven't we combined the two?

I'm thinking... the obvious answer is to combine rally racing with 3-gun. Picture this...

Shooter begins seated at conference table, pistol in holster, car keys in pocket. Rifle and shotgun are secured in the shooter's vehicle. Upon the start buzzer, the shooter must stand, draw, and engage hostile targets while moving to his vehicle. He drives the first half of the course, stopping at a position overlooking a roadblock. He must exit his vehicle with his rifle, take cover (using vehicle or terrain as appropriate), and engage hostile targets at the roadblock. Upon clearing all targets, he re-enters his vehicle, drives past the roadblock and through the rest of the course, and stops at a final shoot house. He then exits the vehicle with his shotgun and clears the shoot house, engaging hostile targets while on the move. Penalty time is added for misses, hitting no-shoot targets, and leaving the course.

Call it the Wheelman Games. Because Spycraft.

In between this afternoon's sporadic bouts of productivity, I primed a Micro Armor sample pack for painting (some flavor of M1 Abrams, some flavor of M109, a soft-top HMMWV, and an infantry squad). This will be experimental. I don't expect to post pics unless I exceed my own dismal expectations.

Separately, the House of Cats and Dice has been struggling all summer with tiny ants in the kitchen. [ profile] elalyr caught one on the refrigerator door handle, which led to this exchange of dialogue:

T: I think they're trying to get my ice cream. Bitches better not get my ice cream. I will bust a cap in some arthropod's ass.

E: A very, very tiny cap.

T: Of course. Why do you think I've been painting 6mm figures?

E: (pause) Of course! It all makes sense now!

Hmm. Scenario pack?

In honor of [ profile] tracker7's reminder that today is First Contact Day, I mowed crop circles into the yard.

Why commas matter:

  1. Let's eat, Grandpa!
  2. Let's eat Grandpa!

"If you live in an area that is subject to natural disasters such as earthquakes, make sure your home bar has one or two bottles of booze that come in plastic bottles. That way, even if all the other bottles fall off the shelf and break, you will still have something with which to drown your sorrows and get you through the cleanup."

I think at least two of my three loyal readers have seen this by now, but the CDC has lurched onto the zombie apocalypse bandwagon:

If you're ready for a zombie apocalypse, then you're ready for any emergency.

I'm strangely okay with this. Whatever gets the message out, guys.

Combat coffee TTP, brought to you by the Canadian Forces contingent in Afghanistan.

(I hate YouTube embeds, so... linky.)

Not safe for most work environments due to gratuitous profanity... but if profanity bothers you, why do you associate with me?
