Happy Caturday from 26ºF Larryville, GN!

Another fine thread pic, Mac. (And ongoing appreciation for your being a diligent ThreadLad.)


“Yeah, it’s Caturday; you got
a problem with that?”

Sven --

Hope you and the missus are both feeling better.

Need I remind you of the day that that old wheel was being shut down due to SWMNBN’s complaints to the host provider?

Heh. BTW, 02/23 will be the 8th anniversary of Pwnage Day.

We’ll be rolling out to teh New ClanK Ancestral Compound for lunch with MamaK & PapaK followed by attending a nearby gun show. Food, folks and firearms!

Ruh roh…looks like NBC may have a significantly bigger problem on their hands:

In other words, there are two problems with the original report. The first and most basic is that the video of the helicopter drop does not match the audio in the sense that the communications were coming from a completely different set of Chinooks. The second and much bigger problem is that the decision to air that mismatched audio and video had to have been made deliberately. Note that Williams very specifically says “our drop” when referring to “this routine mission is running into trouble.”

If what Tritten and Miller say is true, then not only did Williams tell a false story for 12 years, Williams and his entire NBC crew presented a false report to NBC viewers. They edited in the radio traffic of another mission in order to make it look like their mission came under fire.

Happy Caturday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa!

I saw a poll last night of people who had seen Brian Williams’ apology -- 80% felt that he should be fired.

Hai, Paddy, Jerry and Mac (in order of appearance).

I wish my depilation looked that good. Plus, my lips are plumper.

Things are good at teh new CKAC; still stuff to unpack, but it’s quite cozy and homey. The gun show was pretty small; nonetheless, there were a few semi-auto and wheel gewgaws which caught my eye. 😉

The asking price for Saiga-12s is stunning; fark you, Il Douchey!

And I do have half of a ginormous and delicious calzone leftover for dinner. When the server brought it to the table, I asked rather incredulously, “Is this the medium?” (they offered medium and large); MamaK assured me it was.

Is this the medium?


No, but she’ll be back, shortly.

If you’re not sure, ask Elena which one you can play with.

I’ll be standing waaaaaay over here.

Hahahahahahaha. Both of you.

I’m off to read some Anthony Trollope. 😉
