The World Sucks

Years ago I wrote:
“'Something must be done'?” Sol shook his head. “Those four words have led to the greatest atrocities in the histories of every known race, slavery and murder on industrial scales, devastation of entire continents. No such evil can ever be completely destroyed, and we've stopped wasting treasure and blood trying. It will always exist somewhere.” Gentling his tone, he reminded her, “Your would-be slavers wore the uniforms and claimed the authority of your own government, your 'protectors.'”
At this she frowned. “And your solution is to leave everyone to fend for themselves?”
“Compared to the alternative? Absolutely.”

Well... there's your problem. And I'm stuck in one of them, parking cars for minimum wage and now getting less than twenty hours a week.

"Unfortunately, evidence is the last thing our Liberal government wants to consider when it comes to firearms."

"In October 2016, students at University of California, Berkeley created a human chain in an attempt to block black students from going to class"OH. WAIT.

The kind of people who don't want you able to defend yourself....
...Really are saying these things out loud.

Sociopaths who refuse to recognize us as human beings. We're all just cardboard cutouts on the genocide-fantasy stage-plays of their minds.

  • AND YET AGAIN OUR "PROTECTORS" KNEW AND DID NOTHING INVITED THE MONSTER IN WITH HIS FUTURE VICTIMS' TAX DOLLARS. "PROTECT AND SERVE" WHO?

    The World Sucks

    Hypocrisy... show-business celebrities calling for NRA members, or conservatives, or whites, to be rounded up and "face a firing squad". Now there's this show in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, The Gifted, in which human mutants, homo superior, are hunted by the United States government. Back in the 1980s I was a comicoholic, before Marvel went Social Justice and pooped all over their customers. The X-Men and associated titles were what drew me in - underdogs being hunted and persecuted. So now, now that the racist Marxist usurper is out and someone who doesn't hate America is in, Marvel, in comic books and on screens small and large, portrays an overreaching tyrannical government persecuting Certain Kinds of People, rounding them up and taking them away, and... it appears they really don't, won't, can't see the other end of that equation. Or it's all just part of their aforementioned genocide-fantasies - the kind of government powers they dream of exercising against anyone who disagrees with them, and they're forgetting to use their inside(-their-heads-)voices.

    Not unrelated, I recently had opportunity to watch Spider-Man: Homecoming and it was packed full of Social Justice lies and bigotry, including a line near the end: "...journalists, real ones, not bloggers."

    Your Ministry of Truth Moment o' the Day. The treasonous pig responsible for an Islamic terrorist entering this country blames the man trying to keep them out.

    No, really, white straight males need not apply.

    Then, Michael G. sends, "Vassar [College]: Free Speech is invalid. '...[N]ot about one’s individual, legal right to free speech, but is instead about the collective well-being of all members of our society.' Sounds kind of like the collective interpretation of the Second Amendment. Not exactly surprising that those who attack liberty would use similar methods to attack different freedoms."

    With, "Brandeis [University] cancels play Black Lives Matter objects to. 'He said calls for Brandeis to cancel the play weren’t calls for censorship.' Is that anything like, 'This is not an assault' or 'Stop resisting!'?"

    Which segues to:

  • Our "protectors" KNEW AND KEEP INVITING MORE.
  • Not suspicious.
  • At all.
  • Keep telling me how only the government can be trusted with guns.
  • They like to hurt people and that's why they become cops, Chapter MMMMMCCL.
  • "What if Home Depot had refused to rent a truck to Sayfullo Saipov?" They would have been vilified and prosecuted for discrimination, that's what.

    I also write about many different worlds orbiting different stars. They exist. Dunno if anyone's home on any of them, but the numbers are so big, somewhere there can't not be somebody we could sit down and talk with over a beer.

    As for that concerted and deliberate effort to misinform everyone about everything, years ago Ken Burns made an award-winning documentary about the War Between the States (aka "The Civil War") for PBS.

    and his house got burglarized
    and a security guard went to Mexico
    and a woman who survived died of... something
    and a couple who survived died in a fiery car crash
    and one of the venue managers died of... something

    Texas Attorney General recommends citizens carry weapons for self-defense. Which is not what we've come to expect from that kind. Well, he has to change his own state's laws to allow the thing he's recommending, doesn't he?

  • Many times I've observed, any cop who tries to not be an evil kleptomaniacal pathologically-lying serial-rapist child-pornographer back-shooting murderer is driven out and destroyed, and the same applies to any member of the Democrat party who doesn't worship the almighty State and condemn any measure of personal responsibility.
  • To which dot connect, violently psychotic college professors physically assault students and get away with it. "Protect and Serve" WHO?
  • By which I also mean, from the place where Britain used to be, Michael G. observes, "One girl was taken to court for being 'racially abusive' when she tried to report the man who was sexually abusing her." I warned you this sort of thing would happen.
  • And whose fault is that?
  • The FBI's Motto....
  • ...And a little perspective.

    Aaaaand the place where Sweden used to be is indistinguishable from any other barbaric Islamic cesspit.

    Years ago I wrote, "The last of the productive class was effectively enslaved to prop up the non-workers, whose 'votes' kept the regime in power." And I was right, again.

  • "Maybe gun arrests [in Baltimore] aren’t really down. Maybe they had been artificially inflated by crooked cops." Just as crooked cops in the places where Britain, Germany, Sweden and Australia used to be are artificially deflating crime statistics to hide how terrible their countries have become between the rock of unrestricted immigration and the hard place of prohibiting legal self-defense. "It sounds like this 'elite' task force was primarily being run as a shakedown operation." How many times in these pages have I said, or linked examples, that most "police" "work" consists of robbing people at government gunpoint?

    The World Sucks

    I'm suddenly reminded of another anniversary.

    "Rape culture"....

  • A reader sends: "File this under civilizational entropy. Short version: 'troubled teens' in Flint [Michigan] amused themselves for months by congregating on a bridge over the freeway and throwing bricks and concrete blocks at drivers. Police did absolutely nothing until they finally succeeded and killed someone. This sort of thing is why people drive around Flint, Detroit, Saginaw, and a number of other municipalities rather than through, if they travel near those areas at all. They will get away with it. The prosecutors' office has already tipped its hand by charging them with manslaughter--which is, legally, a term for wrongful death resulting from negligence, rather than the planned and premeditated murder that they carried out. In the event that any of them goes to juvey it'll only be for a year or two and then they'll be back out on the streets, almost certainly with an expunged record [so they can more easily get jobs, because "fairness"] (and you know neither names nor faces of the accused would have been published if they weren't white). This will accomplish nothing to deter copycat cinderblock-throwers, but, of course, it's not supposed to. It's a good thing they didn't get caught handing out copies of the Constitution on a Michigan college campus. They could have gotten in real trouble." Again I ask, "Protect and Serve" WHO? What are we paying you costumed sociopaths for? Why do we even have police if they spend most of their time preying on their employers and ignoring the non-costumed thugs they were hired to protect us from?
  • "Oh yeah, and they finally offered public hearings on the matter [of arbitrarily and ex post facto banning firearm accessories without even the pretense of due process]... after the bill was already sent to the [Massachusetts] governor." That's the system they keep telling us to "work within". Anyone who is a part of creating, maintaining, or enforcing that system is the real criminal.
  • "The global history of mass shootings demonstrates that the vast majority of these crimes are perpetrated in places where citizen firearms ownership is close to nil." Like we've been telling everyone for years. Anyone who enforces any such law, any government-costumed thief and thug who ever enforced any law against the owning or carrying of arms, is the real monster.

    MidWestReader sends range report:
    "I went to one local indoor range and tried the HK VP40 they had for rent, with 50 rounds of Winchester white-box 180gr FMJ.
    "I previously found the recoil of a VP9 to be surprisingly snappy for a 9mm. The VP40 might possibly have a slightly lower bore axis. It was not difficult to shoot at all. The trigger is Glock-ish, with maybe a little less takeup, but a longer reset, and a good tactile reset that you can feel easily while wearing gloves. At seven yards it shoots about 3" low and 2" left for me. After warming up and doing a little rapid fire--as much as you can with 50 rounds and 13 round mags--I made ten head shots, fast. I was pleased with the resulting ten round group, except for its location.
    "The VP40, like the VP9, has a trigger that's usable, though not by any means great, with a lot of takeup and a somewhat mushy release. Recoil is not at all objectionable, though standard-pressure 180s in .40 generally have less snap to them than 165s or 155s moving fast, possibly because the 180s are so long and take up so much internal volume inside the case that there is less space left for the powder charge. The .40, like the 9mm, is not a terribly roomy case, of course. I can live with the trigger, and the finger grooves on the frame aren't nearly as objectionable as those on a Glock 19 or 23. I loathe the pivoting magazine release, though, and would have had a better opinion of the design with a conventional button type release. Also, in a full-size service pistol, magazines holding only thirteen rounds of .40 are a bit of anachronism these days. The magazines themselves are a bit easier to load than Glock or M&P .40 mags, but have sharp edges and corners at the top. I am told H&K's engineers decided thirteen rounds of .40 was probably enough, just as fifteen are in the VP9, and the magazines themselves have what is by current standards a rather tall magazine follower, in order to reduce wear and tear on the spring and preserve the magazine reliability in the long term. It is an all-steel magazine, unlike the polymer magazine tube the .40 caliber USP uses, but the capacity is the same."

    Then:

    "Speaking of .40 and magazine capacity, there was a sobering incident of which I've read a bit at ARFCOM. I am not entirely certain of the location of the incident, but it was a firefight between a state trooper and a rather loathsome individual armed with some kind of cheap potmetal .380. The state trooper may have thought it was a routine traffic stop, but the driver, it developed, was wanted on felony murder charges and not willing to go quietly, so after exiting the vehicle, he produced his pistol and began shooting. It is noteworthy, in my opinion, that the state trooper, armed with a Glock 22, expended thirty-one rounds in a great hurry at conversational distance, hitting the other fellow twenty-two or twenty-three times. Some of these hits were peripheral, but sixteen or seventeen were solid torso hits, within the body cavity. Numerous expanded bullets were recovered, some in the recipient's clothing on his opposite side. Not all bullets were recovered but all exit wounds were described as ragged in character in a manner consistent with proper expansion. The state trooper's marksmanship was not wholly lacking, and one would expect sixteen or seventeen modern .40 caliber hollowpoint bullets scattered across center mass to solve any problem one might hope to solve with a pistol. Penetration to vitals was adequate in all cases--but the fellow with the potmetal .380 had no unusual drugs in his system, nor does he appear to have had any large amount of alcohol. Rather, he appears to have been just that determined to stay in the fight, just that determined not to go back to prison. He had six rounds in the .380 and no spare mags or ammo, and only hit the state trooper once--in the neck, not covered by his body armor, causing him to bleed to death several minutes later, leaving behind a wife and young children at home. Additional cops arrived and had to catch and subdue the bad guy, who had so much metal in his body by this point that you'd think the sheer weight of all that lead should have slowed him down at least a little, and handcuff him before they could get him into the ambulance; apparently he was still fighting when they got him into the operating room. Supposedly he died a few days later from complications after surgery.
    "This is sobering. The International Wound Ballistics Association currently recommends the .40 caliber as the minimum suitable for general duty or carry issue, and recommends a magazine capacity of at least fifteen. I suppose Jeff Cooper would say this was a situation calling for application of the Mozambique Drill as a tactic. Still and all, he soaked up sixteen or seventeen solid torso hits with a modern service caliber handgun, using hollowpoint bullets that appear to have performed to spec and as designed, and he wasn't even drunk or on drugs. It's rather chilling, and recalls the April 1986 'Miami Massacre,' and the manner in which Mr. Platt, the bank robber and possible serial killer, absorbed multiple .38 and 9mm hollowpoints without so much as flinching and kept on fighting right up until he bled out and died. It brings to mind zombie stories.
    "It brings to mind an incident in Florida this spring, censored video of which was briefly on Youtube, of an intoxicated and possibly mentally ill individual basically committing suicide-by-cop, taunting the police with a rifle until one of them gave him a neat pattern of #00 buckshot right across his A-zone. I was struck by the way, despite the tight pattern made by 12 gauge buckshot at conversational distances, despite the fact that given its placement he shouldn't have had a heart any more (though I have seen no autopsy results), and that I would have expected at least a pellet or two to strike his spinal column as well, he did NOT collapse. I wonder whether 27 pellet #4 buck would have had a greater chance of striking his spine or otherwise doing something more immediately incapacitating, but I never thought there could be that much of a difference. Instead of falling down as one might expect, he dropped the rifle and staggered back and forth shouting obscenities. He was still fighting when they put the cuffs on him, though he died in the ambulance on the way to the hospital. Had he wanted to fight he could have, and he continued to talk and react and move purposefully for some minutes. That's a little terrifying.
    "I suppose what we can conclude from this is that 'stopping power' is a myth, and we should plan on needing to keep on shooting, and possibly on needing to be able to make head shots."

    With:

    "I also had an opportunity to try a fullsize S&W M&P .45. This one had the worst trigger I've ever felt on a striker-fired pistol, which is saying something--lots of takeup, a heavy mushy break, and a mushy reset that I couldn't quite feel or time well, so that I ended up having to let the trigger go all the way forward between shots in order to get the next shot off reliably. Also, the magazines are advertised as holding ten rounds but without a magazine loading tool I could only get nine in--the magazine springs are VERY stout. Research afterwards reveals that this is common with M&P .45 mags before they break in, and it can take some hundreds of rounds before you can get all ten in. I didn't get a picture because I was disappointed with how I shot it. Recoil is not bad at all, and it's not fatiguing to shoot, but I was flinching pretty badly because I tried a new range in [redacted], one with stamped sheetmetal 'diamond plate' dividers between the lanes, which were in a long narrow room with concrete walls and floor. I was set up and trying to shoot beside a fellow shooting an M4 carbine. Every time he touched that thing off all the lane dividers rang like gongs--and so did my skull." [I'm reminded of an unpleasant experience I had at an indoor range many years ago, where someone a few lanes over was using an Automag III in .30 Carbine. It felt like my eyeballs were clicking together.] "The M&P .45 was reliable, for fifty rounds of factory ball ammo, except for the mags holding one round less than they were supposed to. It was still one or two rounds more than most fullsize 1911s. I suppose an aftermarket trigger might help, and if I found a used one and the price was right, I would at least consider it, 9+1 capacity or no."

    The World Sucks

    Long crappy day at work.
    F*** the world I wanna get off.


    Even more RINO backstabbing.

    The next time someone tells you how awesome that latest movie was....

    Immigrants Contributing to Society. It's not "Islamophobic" if it's true.

    With ever more of the same.

    Well here's the most racist thing I've heard today.

    I no longer regret never having served in the military.

    I'm not religious, but I have said, a person who cannot defend himself is an object of pity, while one who will not is an object of revulsion.

    F*** NA$A, Chapter MMMMMCCLXI. Get out of the way.

  • Remember, peasant, only police can be trusted with guns.
  • Because they have all that training.
  • "...[H]undreds of domestic abusers in our area hold onto their guns, in spite of court orders" and how many of them also have badges? Tell me again how there's "no conspiracy to take my guns" and "police in this country will never go door to door confiscating guns" on made-up charges and outright lies.
  • The Official Story really isn't adding up. It's not paranoia if they've done it before.
  • "Protect and Serve" WHO?

    Bah.

    Yes, Fudd, that means grandpa's Woodsmaster too.

    We're not the ones hurting people. We're the ones getting blamed and punished for crimes committed by the same people who accuse us.

    And yes, they really would, in so many of their own words, rather see more innocent people murdered than allow any of us to defend ourselves. -I know, it'll be waved away as Yet Another Biden Gaffe, he meant the probably-leftist athiest who probably voted for him, but no, some things you just can't spin.

    In further support of which,
    last month I made this meme:

    and I was right, again.

    To automatically believe sexual assault allegations against leftists and disbelieve them against conservatives is not hypocrisy. It's statistics.

    It's also toxic feminism.

    Speaking of damned inconvenient truths.

    Blogbrother SMLE Fan observes industrial protectionism. -I'm reminded of the pogrom against robots and artificial intelligences in Frank Herbert's Dune. Which in turn bears upon my own work.

    Government-school brainwashing in the place where Britain used to be.

    (And right here at home as usual.)

    Which segues to the place where France used to be.

    But remember, peasant, keeping immigrants out is "racist".

  • How many times in a row did their system fail?
  • And why should we obey laws that are obviously being enforced only when some power-tripper damn well feels like it? Yeah I'm waiting for charges of speeding, reckless driving, and assault with a deadly weapon, against Stephen Willeford and Johnnie Langendorff. Because some costumed sociopath has to make his quota.
  • A little perspective on those unstable freaks in black robes.
  • Or anything with a badge.
  • What if they really are not paranoid conspiracy theories?
  • The FBI's motto.
  • Hey quick which party has been running Chicago for how many decades?
  • Hey quick which party has been running Baltimore for how many decades?
  • "No person shall... be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law"OH. WAIT.

    Long past time we had a warrior in charge of the War Department.

    "Republicans are the party of white supremacy"OH. WAIT.

    "Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort."

    The other day was a report that the US Army was relaxing barriers to enlistment for people suffering mental illness and it looks like that was a lie. And Old Media wonders why we don't trust them anymore.

    RINO backstabbing, Chapter MMMMMCCLXIII.

    Meanwhile on campus, Michael G. sends, "UVA to reduce sanctions on lying, cheating, stealing. While the sanctions against actions that can be objectively proven or disproven will be reduced they will still come down like a ton of bricks on purely subjective offenses. Starting wages at the law firm of Dewey, Cheatam and Howe must be going through the floor since they will have such a huge pool to choose from."

    And that's what you get for your soul-crushing debt.

    Toxic feminism....

    Real communism has never been tried....

    Immigrants
    Contributing
    To
    Society....

    BUT THEY CALL US "RACIST".

  • In Texas, decent people stop monsters. In California, decent people are robbed and kidnapped by their "protectors" if they try to defend themselves and the monsters know it. "Protect and Serve" WHO?
  • AND CHICAGO TOO.
  • Because those are Gun Control Success Stories!
  • Well it sure as hell ain't us they're "serving" and "protecting". Remember this the next time some sniveling coward tells you to never take matters into your own hands and always leave things to the authorities.
  • And the next time you see blue lights in your mirror, remember this.
  • And all their "brothers and sisters in blue" who get their own pieces of the action.
  • But always remember, peasant, only police can be trusted with guns. Because we need them to protect us from drunk drivers.
  • Likewise, for years I daydreamed of leaving this horrible place and starting my life over in Wyoming, and then I started thinking about Kansas but that's shaping up to be an unsafe place for decent people. Texas maybe. There are at least two real American men left there....
  • Chuck Schumer promoted an immigrant visa program which brought the New York truck massacre immigrant into this country. Hillary Clinton invites rapists.
  • "...[W]e would never do that." Think about the kind of people who would.

    Increments in Michigan. It's still wrong to demand extortionate permission to exercise a natural human right, but that right can be taken back a piece at a time, the same way it was stolen.

    [1:45:25 PM] Jeffersonian: balancing on the financial razor edge of homelessness :(
    [1:46:47 PM] SMLE Fan: not to worry: you'll set up FTE before then (Fluffy Tux Exterminators) and there won't be a rodent or skwrrl in Portland
    [1:47:13 PM] SMLE Fan: CALL 1-800-NYA for a free estimate!
    [1:47:52 PM] Jeffersonian: Fees! Licenses! Bribes! Kickbacks! And I'll be required, at government gunpoint, to hire an overweight physically-challenged immigrant Muslim trans-lesbian kitteh of color with a felony record.
    [1:48:06 PM] Jeffersonian: f***
    [1:48:19 PM] Jeffersonian: not a lot to laugh about here
    [1:48:27 PM] Jeffersonian: today I was driving in an auto auction
    [1:48:35 PM] Jeffersonian: four different auctions around town so far
    [1:48:42 PM] Jeffersonian: this one was an insurance auction
    [1:48:45 PM] Jeffersonian: Sad Broken Things
    [1:49:05 PM] Jeffersonian: AND I'M RIDING THE BUS AND CAN'T GO TO RIFLE PRACTICE
    [1:49:25 PM] Jeffersonian: just got a call from the temp service
    [1:49:41 PM] Jeffersonian: they want me to go back to one of the others tomorrow
    [1:49:48 PM] Jeffersonian: for transporting - shuffling cars across town
    [1:49:57 PM] Jeffersonian: I don't like that particular outfit
    [1:50:47 PM] Jeffersonian: usually disorganized, often unsafe
    [1:50:52 PM] Jeffersonian: BUT THERE'S NOTHING ELSE AND I NEED THE MONEY GODSDAMMIT
    [1:51:52 PM] SMLE Fan: it's better than sitting here waiting for someone with a broken computer to call....and then finding out that, as usual, I'm dealing with someone who should've been tested (and rejected) for any sort of aptitude concerning advanced and complicated electronics
    [1:52:07 PM] Jeffersonian: [commiseration]


    Yes, Fudd, that means grandpa's thirty-thirty too and even your muzzleloader.

    Authorized Journalists....

    To which dot connect, Foreign Correspondent Jacob N., Trapped in New York, sends the genocidal hypocrisy o' the day: "They really want us to die. And from the same individual, more detail. Note that, despite telling everyone else not to have kids, he has a child of his own. I feel fairly certain that advocating for the self-imposed extinction of humanity should probably be classed as a mental disorder. Note as well that the plans he suggest allow wealthy liberals to buy the rights to have children, and that he advocates open borders to replace the population loss caused by his plan." No wonder they don't want us to have guns.

    Hey quick what's Google's motto?

    Immigrants Contributing to Society....

  • Which segues to "Protect and Serve" WHO?
  • To which dot connect, I have asked, can't they both lose? Thugs in one kind of costume and thugs in another kind, how about they wipe each other out so the decent people can go back to work?
  • Didn't I just say that to believe sexual assault allegations against leftists and disbelieve them against conservatives is not hypocrisy, it's statistics. These are the people who make the "laws" we're all supposed to obey.
  • And who enforces those "laws"? Staggering ignorami, that's who.
  • But tell me again how "law enforcement supports the Second Amendment."
  • Oh, yeah, these are the people who should have a monopoly on violence.
  • So a while back came the story of Carol Bowne, whose blood is as much on the hands of her extortionate bureaucrat "protectors" as on the scum who actually murdered her. Michael G. now sends the same kind of thing in a different field. Just as I wrote years ago, "Government poisons everything it touches, and always has." Never trust anyone who works in government. They consider their pensions to be worth more than our lives. We are not real to those sociopaths, we're only cardboard cutout props in the stage-plays of their minds.
  • And as if on cue.
  • What "law" would you
  • selectively enforce?
  • "Nobody wants to take your guns." What order would you not obey?

    Star Trek phasers and Star Wars blasters and lightsabers - what kind of batteries are those thing supposed to use? Likewise I wrote "Energy-storage had improved vastly since the Escape; the Casetti M437 plasma pistol Danner and much of the crew usually wore carried 27 standard charges of 1.3 kilojoules each. The New Texas Arms MkLX rifle, Marine Corps issue, carried fifty charges of 6.4kJ in the standard configuration...." And: "...[W]earing only a railgun pistol and a simple cutlass." Working on it.

    The World Sucks

    Think about the kind of people
    who don't want you
    able to defend yourself.

    Think about the kind of people who say only the government should provide health care.

    They're the same people.

    By which people I mean,
    years ago I made this meme:

    and I was right, again.

    Michael G. sends, "Refugee influx in Germany followed by jump in violence with knives. But they all are 'isolated incidents' so no conclusions can be drawn."

    David Codrea makes further comparisons, and so does my screennamesake.

    And Old Media wonders why we don't trust them anymore.

    Speaking of trust, blogbrother SMLE Fan has issues with the technologies we all allow in our homes and even carry in our pockets.

    And then everyone stabs us in the back.

    Herschel Smith observes that other George Orwell novel intended as a warning and misinterpreted as an instruction manual.

    F*** the NFL. And as has been observed, '...[I]f the intent is to protest “police brutality,” the collectivists never seem to see the disconnect with one of their other key platforms, making sure that police are the “Only Ones” with guns.'

    Which segues to:

  • Only police
  • can be trusted with guns!
  • Because they have all that training!
  • Remember, peasant, work within their system!

    One of the best lines I ever heard in a movie was in The Patriot, when Rene Auberjonois' character said, "A shepherd must tend his flock. And at times... fight off the wolves."

    In my fictional future history I write about a lot of planets around different stars. They do exist. Probably not where and how I describe them, that's artistic license, but some of them, somewhere, can't not have People We Can Talk With on them.

    It's the Jeffersonian and SMLE Fan Skype Show, Alternate History Edition!
    [6:16:06 PM] Jeffersonian: remember that post you had a couple years ago about how Iowa and Yamato never faced off except you were unclear in the specifics
    [6:16:08 PM] Jeffersonian: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xZoj7LVODv0
    [6:16:21 PM] Jeffersonian: oh, never mind, it's from a game
    [6:34:26 PM] SMLE Fan: battleship duels were few and far between, and Iowa vs. Yamato would, at the least, have made for about elebenty movies
    [6:34:56 PM] SMLE Fan: Toshiro Mifune vs. John Wayne for sure
    [6:35:09 PM] Jeffersonian: "POUR IT TO 'EM!"
    [6:36:27 PM] Jeffersonian: the anime industry needs to make that particular piece of alternate history
    [6:37:31 PM] SMLE Fan: indeed, if for no other reason than I want to hear "Pilgrim" in nihongo
    [6:37:40 PM] Jeffersonian: where would the departure point be though? Samar? Yamato successfully repels the Leyte landings? Okinawa? Yamato was never detected on her last mission?
    [6:38:17 PM] Jeffersonian: her captain sees an opportunity, doesn't beach the ship, seizes Allied fuel stores, continues the fight
    [6:39:03 PM] SMLE Fan: I'd start with Taffy 3 failing, but then again, I know far more of this stuff than your usual Merkin
    [6:42:48 PM] SMLE Fan: and furthering the dive into the weeds, who would you detach from the ship to man the pumps and provide for perimeter security? How many AA guns would you take offline to provide the men for that? You'd need to raid the engineering spaces, but how long can you operate a ship like that when your guys below decks are doing 12 hour shifts to make up the shortfall?
    [6:43:50 PM] Jeffersonian: suspense! tension! the ticking clock! the ever-mounting risk of discovery!
    [6:45:10 PM] SMLE Fan: plus, who do you p!ss off? Whichever way the script resolves, you're gonna have some ticked-off movie goers
    [6:45:34 PM] Jeffersonian: DAMMIT WE SHOULD BE GETTING PAID FOR THIS

    I wish to acquire this very particular gas block:



    It is used by Windham Weaponry on some of their barrels, uppers, and complete rifles. They have told me it is not available separately.

    This gas block has:
    a Picatinny rail at the SAME HEIGHT as the upper receiver rail;
    and a bayonet lug;
    and a conventional sling swivel;
    and it is pinned to the barrel instead of using set- or clamp-screws.

    If you have one, for example taken off a Windham rifle which has been reconfigured, I WILL PAY MONEY FOR IT. Please contact me by clicking "comment" below.
