I thought this was an interesting photo from the Lexican’s F/B page. I remember reading about this pod in this book –
And wondering how they did it.
Still the thought of dropping down in this at Mach 1+ ….
H/T to one of the Lexicans…
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
19,000 people fit into the new Barclays Center to see Jay-Z perform. This blog was viewed about 140,000 times in 2012. If it were a concert at the Barclays Center, it would take about 7 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
Click here to see the complete report.
A good start.

A fleeing Taliban, desperate for water, was plodding through the Afghan desert when he saw something far off in the distance. Hoping to find water, he hurried toward the oasis only to find a British soldier selling regimental ties.
The Taliban asked, “Do you have water?”
The soldier replied, “There is no water, the well is dry. Would you like to buy a tie instead? They are only £55.00”
The Taliban shouted, “You idiot infidel! I do not need an over-priced tie. I need water! I should kill you, but I must find water first!”
“OK,” said the soldier, “It does not matter that you do not want to buy a tie and that you hate me. I will show you that I am bigger than that, and that I am a much better human being than you. If you continue over that hill to the east for about two miles, you will find our Sergeant’s Mess. It has all the ice cold water you will need….”
Cursing him, the Taliban staggered away over the hill.
Several hours later he staggered back, collapsed with dehydration & gasped …. “They won’t let me in without a f*cking tie!”

Besides being extremely timely considering the current ongoing debate, this is another of Lex’s posts I have kept in hard copy form for myself. The argument he uses in support of the Second Amendment is a good one, and I’ve used it in discussions with friends of mine in the past.
