  • Nah, merely an aficionado of the more profane elements of the language. Of which the Aussies are amongst the very finest practitioners thereof, certainly.

    Incidentally, are not all chaps intrinsically assless? Unless it is two or more meager-assed fellows/chaps to whom you refer?

  • Looking for pocket knife direction for my wife
  • This may be your answer. With the exception of cutting bark, this item may answer may check off all boxes button lock open and closed, quick effortless deployment, cheap, lightweight, pocket clip, lanyard hole, multiple blades, light, and did I mention cheap: three for $17 and a shitload of blades included. If this were to answer absolutely none of the criteria you may have, you are out, again, $17. Lose one, you have two more for $17.

    $17.

  • Does this plan make sense? v4
  • End qualified immunity for cops, increase minimum training requirements, and institute federal licensing scheme to increase accountability, along with mandatory malpractice insurance coverage.

    None of these standards are more strenuous than the ones I have to meet for my non-LEO job.

  • A view

    A view of the bar at Maggy McGarry’s, an unassuming little pub in the Telegraph Hill neighborhood of San Francisco that will furnish you with a pint o’ Guinness and a Tullamore Dew neat at 9:30 on a Sunday morning, should the need arise.

    Apologies for the potato quality photo; more of a PSA than anything artful.

    Cheap, good quality travel pants?

    Looking for recommendations on good quality, affordable, technical (lightweight, low cotton, high stretch) pants (no zip off legs, please) that will travel well, largely wrinkle free, and can dress up and down depending on pairings. Trying to avoid the cargo pant look. Does such a thing exist, or is it like the old saying: good cheap or fast, pick two?

    One console, one game

    If you could only re-experience from new one game (like total immersion, wide-eyed wonder-at-the-majesty-of-it-all re-experience) and had yet to pick a console (Xbox versus PlayStation), what game on which console and why? (and feel free to remark on ideal controllers, add-ons, etc.)

    I was hoping Starfield might be that kind of galvanizing experience, but the reviews are pretty underwhelming. So now casting about for the real deal.
