I just bought a box of 44 special. Worst case scenario
I can use a kinetic puller to put the bullets into a
magnum case. I have a Ruger .44 rifle. I guess I could
cock the thing for each shot. the 44 was all they had.
I'm going to have to order bulk ammo.

I mentioned this rifle before. I can shoot soft lead slugs the size of AA batteries. I have a plaster casting mold for various bullets. If I'm ever offered the chance to go after Big African Game, this will be the rifle I take and use. Of course my narcoleptic hide isn't hitting the savannah, or veldt, any time soon.

I have under the castoff pile in my room.
A TRS-80 model 100 laptop computer.
Tam reviewed one in her Digital Fossils blog.
With 4 old school AA batteries, that thing would go for 2-3 hours of Pre internet era computing.
Most of which is, thankfully, covered by the Statute of Limitations.
I expect new AA batteries, that outlast D cells, would power that old beast for 5-6 hours.
Why then can I not unplug my current laptop, and go into the rest of the house for more than an hour without that post-modern lithium-nickel-hydride battery pack begging the computer to demand I plug it back in?
Is this the progress I was led to expect?

Got This one from Elena Filatova's web site.
Elena is on the short list of people I'd like to meet if I win the lottery.
Scientists of one of banana republic recently announced the discovery of the heaviest element yet known to science. The new element has been named "Governmentium."
Governmentium (Gv) has one neutron, 25 assistant neutrons, 88 deputy neutrons, and 98 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 212. These 212 particles are held together by forces called morons. Morons still unexplored substance, the distinctive feature of which is large amount of pockets.
Governmentium has a normal half-life of 4 years; it mass will constantly increase over time, because during decay cycle, the mass of pockets of assistant neutrons, deputy neutrons and assistant deputy neutrons on the increase and when it reaching critical concentration, the stucture undergoes a reorganization, in which some morons become a neutrons, a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places. Since Governmentium has no electrons, it is inert. However, it can be detected, because it impedes everything with which it comes into contact and it comes in reaction with everything that has electrons and not inert. A minute amount of Governmentium can cause a reaction that would normally take less than a second to take over four days to complete.
When Gv decays, it falls into another new elements, Retiredum (Re) and Retardium (Rt) which some call Dementium (Dm)
The wikipedia article has a slightly different slant.

I was going to hold my tongue.
But these beat any offering from t-shirt-hell all hollow!
runner up: Ni**er Please! It's the WHITE House.
tasteless t shirt of all time: Got Milk? (with pic of revolver)..
-Though I have said that Diane Feinstein makes me wish Dan White had a Speed-loader!
