Gut Rumbles

random thoughts

*I saw Leonard Nimoy on a "Gunsmoke" episode yesterday. He played a clever Comanch Indian named "John Walking Fox," and acted a lot like Spock in that character. He was good.

*Can you use fingernail polish remover to clean a gun if you're out of gun-cleaner? Nail polish remover is almost pure acetone, which is also a central ingriedent in gun cleaner. Not that I'm thinking of TRYING THIS, mind you... I was just wondering.

*I killed a German cockroach in my bathroom today. That's the first roach I've ever seen in my house (oh... I have cricket invasions and ant-parades.... but I don't get roaches.) Just damn! If there's one where I could see it, there's probably 500 that I can't see.

* I met a really good dog this weekend. You cat-people can go fuck yourselves. There ain't nothing better than a good dog.

* How did we become "politically correct" as a society? When did people become so delicate that WORDS became banned lest we "offend" somebody? Who ever said life was supposed to be easy?

* I don't know why anybody bothers to vote anymore. It doesn't do any good. Government is bound and determined to control every aspect of your life, and the party in charge doesn't matter. They merely disagree on HOW government should control your life. They DON'T disagree with the control issue.

* When did we change from "Don't Tread on Me" to "GIMMEE! OR I"LL SUE"!!!???

* What makes a judge any better than YOU are?

* I have recurring nightmares about poisonous snakes and dangling, helpless, from high places. I've never been snake-bitten of fallen from a high place in my life. Why don't I dream about evil wimmen? I've a dose or two of those.

* I'm going to eat some baked chicken with Vegemite toast. I'm starting to like that stuff.


I have to agree on the cat prespective. My dad has two of them all, one does is bring dead animals in the house and the other just pukes hairballs on my keyboard. I want to feed them to my Akita.

As for your fifth thought. I think Dennis Leary said it best when he said "Life sucks get a fucking helmet".

If you believe in such malarky, dreams about falling signify feeling insecure about something...snakes signify hidden fears. Therefore, your subconcious obviously fears being insecure.

There...I just saved you $100 and an office visit to a shrink.

I wish I could have been there to see that women's face! That's what she gets!

point 1) pass.
point 2) Yes.
point 3) Yep, call in the professionals if you can.
point 4)
point 5) most people in general do not know how to read or write properly anymore, there the confusion and antagonism begins - use of WORDS is becoming a dying art.
point 7) blame shysters who want to earn a fast buck (see also point 5 as to why they get away with this shit
point 8) They are not, all you have to do do is believe in yourself and be learn enough to either win the to your side or slam then down in flames.
pont 9) meh... you 'really' want to know? I ain't going into it via comments. email me.
point 10) good :) bon appetite!

Nightmares about dangling from high places! Ha! Sounds like yer gunna go to heaven whether you like it or not! And, not to be afraid, evil wimmen aren't there!

Fuck dogs. Obsequious little toadies.

Judges are better than us because while we have read the Constitution and understood what is plainly written there, they have read the precedent cases generated by other "black-robed oligarchs," are versed in grasping complexity, and have no need to go back and RTFM, as it were.

The Army had an instructional pamphlet out a few years ago in which they said don't use anything but a pre-mixed gun cleaner.

The info said that if you use Brake-Kleen or straight acetone, you will not only get all the dirt, you will remove the oil from the pores in the metal. Once that oil is gone, the naked parts of the gun will rust really fast.

I know that this is true, because I soaked part of a Glock (one of the steel parts) in acetone once and when I dried it off and put the weapon back together, and had to perform duty with the gun getting rained on for one day, that part rusted really badly, but it was the only part to rust.

Also, that wimmen's nail cleaner may be mostly acetone, but I'll bet it has some organic crap in it to keep from damaging the skin or nails, and you wouldn't want that on your weapon.

Try kerosene if you're out of gun cleaner. Or diesel.

I remember as a kid living in the south, only the neighbors had roaches; the bugs at our house were waterbugs!!

Marmite is better than Vegemite.

I use acetone to clean a gun before blueing. It will fuck up any plastic or wood on your gun. Be warned. It is classed as a degreaser and works well as such.

Vote Often! And vote No! Apathy in this respect is why we have the assholes we do. Every primary, every vote, show up and vote for the lesser evil. A third party or no show plays into the hands of the tyrants. We can only blame ourselves if we subscribe to this no vote philosphy.

It works too. Look at the Virginia Republican primary. Us gun owners have seized power and we're not giving it up!

What the hell is vegemite? Sounds like the cross between an insect and brocoli and I will not eat either. If you are going to cross species cross an onion and a donkey and get a peiece of ass that makes your eye water!

How did you know the cockroach was German? Did it have a swastika on its back? Did it give you the salute and holler Sieg Heil ! Don't kill them. They are just doing what cockroaches do. :-)

If you'ved got a woodpile close to your house or water in your crawlspace the roaches could be coming from there.

If you've ever picked up liquor boxes to do some moving, chances are they could have come from there. I had a bunch of stuff in storage before I built our last house, and next thing I know I had roaches in my brand-new garage.

I moved out.

Maybe you see the evil wimmen as snakes who'll leave you hangin' every time.

Posted by: Jane on June 29, 2005 09:28 AM

I just want to know - why exactly do you have fingernail polish remover in your house?

Posted by: Trish on June 29, 2005 10:15 AM

Wanna know something scary? Leonard Nimoy made an album way back when. We used to put it on, listen to him sing "I have a Hammer", sink one and scream "Get it Leonard!"

Posted by: Ed on June 29, 2005 10:26 AM

Trish, don't you know Rob has a thing about red toenails! His own, that is!

Posted by: Ed on June 29, 2005 12:04 PM

Vegemite is good shit. Put some butter on toast, spread that shit on there,slap a piece of cheese on top and get a glass of milk. Damm tasty =P

I use brake cleaner and carburetor cleaner when I'm taking one completely apart and it's really cruddy; old oil and fouling, caked grease and so forth. It will strip everything, so you definately have to properly oil it afterward, both for rust protection and lubrication.

And yeah, it will damage/dissolve a lot of plastic parts used in some, recoil buffers and grips for instance, so you have to take them out first.

Judges arent, they just think they are because so many fools have invested so much prestige in the robes.

I've had a couple of cats that ranked right up there with dogs as companions, but I do lean toward dogs.
