      A story I must tell you. For the past two weeks I have been running on fumes - helping my tile contractor father out at the job, preparing to remodel our entire house and fixing up my car, I've had only a few hours of sleep. The rest was work. With money being tight, I'm trying to be selective on what I buy. Meaning that my shoes were literally held together with duck tape until I decided to get new boots. My father had to pick materials up at Conestoga in Harrisburg, PA, which is a two hour drive. After we had the materials we stopped at the Bass Pro Shop there to look at all their cool stuff. While there we found a pair of Red-Head Gore-tex real leather boots for a hundred bucks, while the average cost is double. I hadn't planned on buying anything while I was out, so I instead asked them to hold the product while I drove home and just payed electronically. They sent them a few days later, meanwhile I was, once again, running on a few hours of sleep at most. I opened the package, delighted, and tried on the boots, which fit perfectly. When I went for the second boot, I noticed that the metal security lock was still in place. Morons. I called them about the problem and asked to send it back to have it taken off - but I wasn't going to pay postage for their dumb mistake. They told me not only couldn't I mail it back to them, but I would have to return it by hand. Driving two hours to Harrisburg. Again. NO WAY ON EARTH. I asked my father and he directed me to Burlington shoes, as they could possibly take it off. I drove out, circled around the mall complex for about half an hour before realizing Burlington doesn't exist anymore. I went to Wal-mart instead, who explained that they use magnets, and not pins. This infuriated me, because I had bought the bloody boots to be WATERPROOF, and they used @^#*!#@%##& PINS!? Yet another problem was that every time I went into a store, their anti-theft alarms would blare once they picked up the stupid lock. I had a constant security team escorting me. They directed me to Target. Once there, the morbidly obese customer service lady, missing all of her teeth, upon hearing my request, began LITERALLY yelling that I was a thief and a liar. I began yelling back, fueled by incompetence and no sleep, some very choice words. Security and a manager was kind enough to come over and actually ask for a God*$%@# receipt which I hadn't had a chance to give the walking grease-planet yet. They apologized, fired the woman right there, and then asked if I would apologize to her. I said 'screw you' in a less than kind manner and stormed out. I then went to the only other store nearby I knew carried shoes with locky-things. Which would be Ross's. I went inside, talked for about five minutes on my crappy day and was asked for a receipt to make sure I hadn't stole them. I gave it to them, and walked out with my now better-off boots with the hole in them I don't even want to attempt to explain the actual store I bought them from. In short, Ross's is awesome. I was angry, tired, and still in work clothing, and they were nothing but polite. Use their services! I know for certain I could have handled the situation at Target better, but I was tired and she gave me an excuse to snap. When you're tired, dirty and already enraged, being courteous to every person you see, retelling the same story a million times is sometimes nearly impossible. Wal-mart is awesome, so is Ross's.

      Also, fuck Target.

      So, the new trailer is out. It's going to be the same old tripe, yet again. What has this trailer shown us? Oh, the graphics are even prettier!! And the scripted events are even more scripted!! Anything gameplay related? New features, revitalized game mechanics? Nope. It's call of duty. They don't fucking need new stuff, they have the best formula for a game, perfected in COD3! Actually, how dare you even complain!? You're just some Battlefield fanboy!

      Yes, I am. With GOOD reason.

      (It also sucks because I'm going to buy it anyway .... their money machine keeps rolling)

      To really get what I mean in depth, check out the wikipedia article for the picture.
      Portal 2 is looking to be great, but I'm actually sorta ticked. Chell's character model was 'updated'. Her trademark orange jumpsuit has now been stripped off her to the waist, and underneath she wears a skin tight, skimpy white tank top. According to Valve, this was to " ... make the character stand out as an individual ... ", and to " .... [give] the sense of more freedom of movement ... ", as well as to " ... [design] Chell to appear physically capable of completing the test chambers, but with some vulnerability." Let me translate this for you, if you haven't already gotten the message. This is Valve speak for "BOOBS!! WE'RE NOT SHALLOW AT ALL!! SEXUALIZING OUR CHARACTER? HA! NONSENSE! IT'S JUST DISPLAYING HER AS AN INDIVIDUAL! MWA HAHAHAHA!!"
      Screw you, Valve. SCREW you.

      What do you mean you're not going to college!?!

    • SPARTAN_204

      9 years ago

      It was actually about a $4,000 course(I believe) I took at my continuation school. Two Probation Officers team teached. We mainly studied the law with packets! lawls, watched tv shows like Lockdown and took notes, and went on police ride alongs for extra credit. Finish one semester, you get the certificate. Finish the second semester and you get college credits, which is great if you're still in high school, well more so you have college credits before you actually go to college which means it will be easier to get into a college when you already have credits.

      I only have a .30-06, and that is currently going for salvage because I can't get a new firing pin for it and it needs a new barrel. Other then that I only have a pair of bolt action .22's and a Mossberg 500C 20 gauge.

    • JackassIam

      Pretty simple. The first step is to clean your used brass, I just use a little steel wool or emery cloth, and a clamp that works in my power drill, the clamp holds on to the rim of the brass nicely, you just spin up the drill and clean the brass (you can use a tumbler if you do a lot of brass at once but you can't feel for damage to the brass as you clean it) then you clean use an oil and lightly coat (lightly means incredibly lightly) the brass, then you run it through the sizing/decapping die to return the case to its proper dimensions and push out the old primer. Then you clean the primer pockets, removing the crimp if it was an old military round from the primer pocket as well. Then you clean it (engine staring fluid works great for this) of all the oils and what not, let the cases dry and then you can prime them with an auto primer (you put in a case, push the lever and then remove it and put in the next works great and is fast) then you measure your powder charge to as exact as you can get it, load each primed case with its charge, then you seat your bullets in the case.


      You only need the press to size and decap the brass and seat the bullets, I'd suggest a good powder scale that isn't digital the old balance style is great because you can adjust it every time to ensure it is accurate unlike a digital where you can zero it but it might lose itself after a while if the springs wear down.

      You can get a pour for the powder that'll premeasure the charge, but those are only good for a ballpark on the charges if you are using a coarse ground powder such as IMR 4064 which is one of the standard staring powders for rifles. They get better for finer ground powders though.

      Reloading my friend, some of that expensive ammo? Much cheaper if you reload it yourself, normally half the price.

    • JackassIam

      9 years ago

      It takes the same work to own a RPG and one warhead for it as it does for an automatic. Though you have to pay 200 dollars and wait for BATF approval for each warhead you want to buy.

      Obama has spent more money on failing programs in his few months of being elected than any and every president before him, COMBINED.
      Yes, capitalism, the blessed idea that made this country the most productive and fruitful country on Earth, is bad. Because the USSR was obvioulsy working at 100%! Makes perfect sense.

      I think it's quite cool. I'm not too happy about some of the achievements, the ones where you need four players and it has to be over a Live connection. Live has been so crappy lately that people are constantly losing connection. A bit annoying when you get halfway through the "Deja Vu" achievement and someone disconnects, lol. I'm enjoying firefight though. What do you think of it?
