Mix This With That: Parkas + Boots

I’m headed to Norway next week and I knew that it would be COLD and covered in snow so I planned ahead. I asked for these Sorel boots for Christmas and purchased this red parka in a New Year’s sale to wear together on my week long winter adventure. I consider winter wear an investment, so I shop for boots and jackets I know I’ll love for a few seasons to come. Fashion isn’t something I talk about very often but since the parka + snow boot combo is on my mind I rounded up ones that won’t break th...

Transformers: Lost Light #13 Full Preview - CABIN FEVER!

Thanks to Nick for letting us know Newsarama has posted the Transformers: Lost Light #13 Full Preview! CABIN FEVER!

The Evil of Creeping Gun Control & The Slippery Slope

Creeping Gun Control & The Slippery Slope Fayetteville, AR –-(Ammoland.com)- Those of us who support gun rights often get accused of committing the fallacy of the slippery slope, the assertion without evidence that if we take one step in a given direction, we’ll inevitably end up in disaster. Assuming the angle and viscosity of the slope is at best lazy thinking and at worst a denial of the reality that most of the time, we muddle through, arriving neither in heaven or hell.This is not to say ...

No More Good Old Days

They should really call it "The Good Young Days"There are great things about being older, sure. You can drive anywhere you want. You can buy and eat cake for dinner and no one will stop you. You can rent a jet-ski. Heck, you can OWN a jet-ski. But nothing will ever top the feeling of being a little kid without a care in the world, eating cereal in front of the TV with exactly zero plans for an entire weekend... Except maybe owning a jet-ski.

Make A Resolution To Drink More Tea!

Okay. Let’s talk about soda. Yeah, yeah, you may know it’s not good for you—but at the same time, it can be totally tough to resist. Come on, who doesn’t remember guzzling it down at the movies (those sugary-sweet chick flicks, though…) and the fizz! Ahh… there’s nothing quite like soda bubbles on a hot day, right?! But, listen, a single can often contains 10 teaspoons of sugar. Imagine digging into a sugar bowl a few times and it’s basically the same thing. For the sake of your teeth, your bod...

Long session...

In order to hasten the wrapup of the CZ-75B Omega test yesterday, I brought two hundred rounds of ammo with me to Indy Arms Co.: A hundred of the Aguila 115gr FMJ and a hundred TulAmmo 115gr FMJ. Still using the distal joint but concentrating on getting off the trigger as soon as it breaks so I can be prepping for the next shot. This stuff was all shot at what was nearing "wheels coming off" speed for me. I am okay with this relative to the previous session, considering I was going a lot faste...
