National Parks and Firearms (but only you can prevent fires)

Thanks for the find Mark!


BC-US--Guns-National Parks,0088 Senate votes to allow guns in national parks Eds: APNewsNow; will be led. With BC-US--Congress-Credit Cards By MATTHEW DALY Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate has voted to allow people to carry loaded guns in national parks and wildlife refuges.

Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., sponsored the measure, which would restore a Bush administration policy allowing loaded guns in national parks.

A federal judge blocked the policy in March, and the Obama administration declined to file an appeal.

The gun amendment was attached to a bill imposing restrictions on credit card companies. The bill was approved 90-5.
The measure now goes to the House, where approval is expected.

Saturday Morning Cartoons

Comin' at ya with some Dragon Tales. Yeah, I enjoy this show.

Please buy this for me!

Tactical bacon. Those are two things I LOVE the sound of! Ok, the main reason I want this is because it's bacon, ask my mother in law. The second reason is because tell one of my friends or coworkers about this and they will agree that "it's a must have for Mike." Here is a description:

"New from CMMG! Its Tactical Bacon in a can. Fully cooked and fully prepared. 10+ year shelf life. Perfect for camping, hunting, zombie standoffs, end of the world scenarios etc. Don't be caught without Tac Bac!"

How to shut up a scammer.

Funny Airsoft

Reporting Live from the "Blog Van"

What's up? Nothin, nothin. Just comin' at you from MY VAN! Yeah, I have a van, don't worry, it's cool. Really. I'm putting in a putting green in the back. Just wait.

Anyway, I got my lady to pick me up (such a sweetie) and I'm riding shotgun so I can tether and get some Internets on my compy.

Check out a pic of my baby boy, he like the car. Usually.

Sweet fauxhawk though right?!

It's not Wednesday. Also, this isn't from my blog, but from my account.

The Joys of Riding the Metro

On the Metro. Waiting for service (AT&T). Might as well blog a little. Is it mine as well or might as well? I never really know so stumble through it fast and no one ever notices.

When I got on the metro, there was an open seat. My rule is to fill the open seats (2 can fit) before sitting next to someone. But there wasn't anyone at all in this row and the train wasn't packed so I figured it was safe. Meaning, people steered away from it because a person with swine flu was sitting there. It looked fine.

Well, upon closer inspection, just as I was about to sit down (and I always slide to the window to not take both seats), I saw some liquid on the outside seat. Not sure what it is bit re only answer thats getting me through this ride is the hope it might be condensation from a frozen lunch in a plastic bag.

Oh, I sat down obviously. I just didn't slide across both seats, I was very careful. But I'm not a true germophobe so I can stomach sitting next to it.

What do you think it is? I'll post a pic.

I'm almost done my commute and have grown attached to the blob. Maybe I'll use some as cologne... Hah, just kidding! This thing is gross! I just hope someone sits next to me! Though the train isn't crowded at all.

The stain may seem super gross but if you ride mass transit, think of how grosser the rails and handles are. So wash those paws kids!

Thanks for riding metro rail. Doors open on the left.

High Blood Pressure?

Thoughts on the Kindle

I don't have a Kindle. I have never really even used one except for a few seconds to play with a dummy one, or was that a Sony... It was a while ago. Anyway, I get the idea.

I do have the Kindle app on my iPhone though and have read a ton of sample books and even bought one book and gave it a real try. It works great!

The problem I had with Kindle as of a month ago: It's too expensive.

The problem I have with Kindle (both of them) as of now: They are WAY too expensive.


Dear Amazon,

The Kindle is pretty amazing. It's small, lightweight and uber portable. E-ink is freakin crazy cool wizardry. But it's too expensive. You needed to make the regular size Kindle $200. But now that you made a big version (why?) you really need to lower the prices. Do what Apple would have done and make the big one the price of the old little one and make the little one $200. Is your overhead really that massive? You will sell way way way more of these if you lower those prices. Your chance to corner the market is now.




That's all.
