Been a while since we had us a good roll call. I'm sure some old trips lurk here, would be nice to hear if they're still alive.

to keep things interesting, it would be great to have a thread for all the old copypasta. Like shooting girl scouts delivering cookies, Peter Cottontail "get your fucking weapon if you don't want to die" Easter pasta, any of the old Opie stuff whatever it includes.

I got a couple I'll be posting, feel free to join in.

Tell me what features you want to see on a new, improved Opchan.

I already have a big ol' list, and the platforms we're considering already do some things, but I want to hear your wildest imageboard fantasies.

I'm not really going to be addressing whether or not they're feasible here, but I am reading everything.

Oh and to quote one Wilhuff Tarkin:

"I maintain that the effectiveness of the Star Destroyer stems from not only its massive firepower, but from its
size. When [mouthbreathing right brainers] look at a Star Destroyer and then compare it to the craft which might be mustered to attack it, they have a tendency to dismiss such a notion as suicidal rather than approach the problem tactically."

Part of me wants to drink heavily when I'm not scheduled for work (I drink a lot less than I used to) and the other part of me has been working out aggressively. Very yin-yang.

I think it depends on how long it takes and how many people die. By my quick wikipedia math, the Spanish flu killed about 2.5% of the world population. (Disclaimer: I don't know shit.) That would be like 195 million people today. That's like 1 or 2 in 50 people, possibly someone you know. If we get to those numbers, it'll be a big change. Otherwise, it will be business as usual as soon as the news cycle hits the next political scandal.

Diseases keep going until they run out of suitable hosts, either through immunity or containment. I think this one will slow due to immunity from either a vaccine or from people who got it and got better. It's only the nasty and obvious diseases like ebola that get enough attention to be contained.

I'm interested to see how it'll affect the poors. It's anyone's guess whether more people in India will die from starvation or the disease. And when they return to work it will be reinfection time all over again.

I think the biggest possible effect will be on globalization. The BBC has an article up about re-shoring; bringing offshore'ed companies back. (Especially the UK, which has no industry at all.) Our company was talking about supply chain issues. 3d printing is kind of a novelty when you can get parts cast in China or wherever, but if you can't get your castings, then 3d printing starts to look a lot more appealing.

I told myself I wouldn't do it but 3L of sweet red wine, a whole frozen pizza, 2 frozen burgers and an entire bag of frozen fries later and this is the first hangover I've had in months.

I once thought about going to AA. Kinda too late in this world now. Also I'm 7 months in my house and I still don't have home internet. Thankfully I still have movies and shows on old hard drives to watch.

Lucky. I haven't seen my GF in 18 days. And even if we see each other we wouldn't make love. I take social distancing very seriously.

Damn that's all the calories.

In addition to working from home and the occasional power walk around the neighborhood, I've been hitting the Best Motoring videos on youtube pretty hard.

Best Motoring english subtitle playlist:

And then I think about getting another RX7. I used to have a 87 non-turbo (second gen) that was a piece of shit, but I loved it. I've always wanted a third gen RX7 (the cool twin turbo 1993-95 one) but they've always been too damn expensive. They were 60k new, and still ask 30k for a good one. I was thinking I might be able to get one on the cheap once someone hits some hard times.

Or I could just be happy with the 2019 Kia Stinger GT I bought 2.5 months ago. It's better by every objective measure... but it doesn't have a wankel. (Or the legendary status.)

I wasn't sure this place still existed. /k/ on the other place is crazy. I haven't been into guns or cared for the opinions og others in a while. Its been what? 8 years? A while.

My old mail got trashed and I lost contact with everybody but it was for the best. I moved back to Germany for a couple years to get healthy (sounds crazy) and had to get sober. My drug use got out of control. Seriously out of control. I needed to be around what remains of my family and shake it.

I won't say not to ever do drugs. Just know you have to stop eventually.

But I'm back in US, paying child support, living the dream.

Just a minor update. I lost a LOT of guns moving (Except Walther P88. I had that with the Bank.) And my AK74. That one hurt because so hard to find now. I'm always going to be an AK Zapman. One day I guess.

Anyways, who is still here? Has anyone died?

Swissguy, Col. Guano, Maxillary, meplat, Hind Fangirl, Zeptorem, Yattuwort, Balci, GOTB?

I heard Gospel Man had some trouble. We did NOT get along but I did at least respect him. How is he?

Children are disgusting. The major SoCal school districts just suspended classes for 3 weeks. The colleges are going online only in April (though I think that might move up.)

At work we had a meeting to discuss who would have an impact on the business by being gone for 6 weeks.

- PHD's and Masters degrees in the design department? Meh. Send em home.
- Avgas, the A&P Mechanic, supporting production - C R I T I C A L

Or maybe I've got it backwards, I'm the expendable one they can make work, while the PHDs stay home. (And you figure the design department is more of the future of the company, rather than the present.)

We also divided up in to the "A" and "B" teams. The idea that one team would come in on even days and the other on odd. My buddy's work had a much better idea where they'd alternate weeks, but being an electrician and not being able to work from home, he'd just get paid to stay home. There's also the "C" team which covers field and sales people, and they're just outright banned.

I keep volunteering to work from home, since I'm used to working on my laptop from the cab of my field service truck, but the managers are pretty old school and have this idea that people need to be in the office to get stuff done.

Well they've had us working from home since Tuesday. Then on Thursday I get a text from the emergency alert system that the plant is completely shutdown for 1st shift, don't come to work. Then 2nd shift. Then Friday and one of the offices too. "For deep cleaning" though "no one has tested positive."

The good news I have plenty of time to practice dry fires now.

my company tried split shifts, half people working 6am-2pm, other half 2pm-10pm. Some in management were still "its just the flu bro" and clueless.

Then when our gov. declared a lockdown management said since we're a defense contractor so we're exempt. Nonsense. The stuff we work on has nothing to do with the current situation.

Then they sent out an email saying you can stay home, use vacation time or take unpaid leave. I'm out till the lockdown is over. I've got enough food to last for a month if not more.

Assuming I don't die from the virus, I am leaving the defense industry for good once I either recover from infection or get the vaccine.

Ditto. We didn't even get told we're exempt and to come in, they just assumed we would. Which we all did, of course. I was told they were working on getting it set up so I could work from home last week, and now this week it seems like they gave up on that? At least I haven't heard anything else. Most of my coworkers can't work from home anyway. Safety guy at work told us if we all wash our hands we'll be fine. Yeah, sure. I have enough saved to where I'd really just rather not be at work for a month or however long.

I can see an AK pistol with a folding sto--, uh, I mean, folding "arm brace" having considerable practical value as a home defense firearm. With a good brake you could get some pretty nice split times at HD distances, I betcha.

Tesla makes a stainless steel DeLorean-esque electric truck shaped like a pyramid.
Using a rigid unibody construction of thick stainless steel from Tesla's space plane designs that can take sledgehammer blows without denting very much, as opposed to DeLorean's thin stainless steel over a fiberglass frame that causes that time machine car to fold up into death traps on bad collisions (and if she flips onto her roof, good luck opening those gull-wing doors). Tesla also boasted of their Cybertruck's "bulletproof" windows, but throwing metal balls at the side windows shatters them like any other window, to the derisive laughs of the crowd at the launch demonstration.

Some day, someone will use a Tesla truck to build a technical, with rockets and gatling guns.

And it will be AWESOME.
