Reminds me of a few years back when the Department of Education put out an RFP for short barrel shotguns. Apparently their Office of Inspector General investigates fraud and such, but it certainly looks sketchy at first blush.

The State Department, however, is buying explosives.

And remember, every single federal department and many independent federal organizations have them. NASA has one, The Tennessee Valley Authority has one, hell! Even the Library of Congress has a team of armed investigators dedicated to fighting fraud, waste, and abuse. So, it doesn't surprise me when ANY subdivision of the US federal government purchases arms and ammunition.

When Modern Farmer first saw a video of a mink catching fish, we couldn’t believe it. Then we talked to Joseph Carter, a Mormon financial planner in Utah, who claims to be the first to rescue and teach minks. Here, in his own words, is how he became an expert in training mink to hunt for him.

So, minkenry. I really don’t know what you’d call it. You could call it a hobby if you want to be friendly with the PETA people. If you want to be a hunter guy, you’d call it a sport. Basically you’re domesticating mink, then taking them out to hunt and fish.

I’m a financial planner for my day job, but I also get paid to hunt muskrats and brown rats with mink. I show up with my mink in my Lexus and people are like ‘What’s the deal with this guy?’ I think I’m the first person in the world to do this.

It all started in 2003 when I moved to Lehi (Utah), a little town with a lot of mink farms. Everybody told me mink are untameable — they’re the most vicious creatures alive. I’ve heard them compared to ferrets, but only people who don’t know mink would say that. Ferrets have no jaw power, no drive, they’ve been domesticated to be pets. A baby mink will kill things that scare most ferrets.

If you’re a zoologist, a naturalist, a mink farmer or a trapper, they all agree how nasty this beast is. I saw a personal challenge here. I was a falconer, I trained horses and I trained dogs; I’ve messed with animals since I was a kid. I just needed a mink to work with.

Here’s the thing: Mink escape from farms all the time. They’re super-clever and hard to keep penned in. If you live next to a mink farm, you’ve had one in your garage — sometimes once or twice a year. It didn’t take long to find one wandering around a field, a female Blue Iris. I trapped her and brought her to my house.

raining Day (Protect Your Face)
Mink farmers had showed me their scars. ‘Here’s where one almost tore my pinkie off,’ ‘Here’s where one grabbed my face,’ all this gruesome stuff. One mink jumped up and hung onto a guy’s nose, wouldn’t let go. I really didn’t know what to expect.

Picture for scale.

I've carried a Kel-Tec on-and-off for about a decade. I added the side-clip and carry the weapon naked against my flesh. This mean I have rust stains on me and it has rust stains on it. Right after I purchased the side-arm, I upgraded to the .357 Sig kit, which is just a 40 S&W slide & mag with a .357 Sig barrel. It is that mouse what roars.

But, I need to refinish it. The bluing is getting rusty, and the barrel is oxidizing black. Also, I dress better, now, and having rust stains on $40 dress shirts is laaaaaaaaaaaame.

Should I tumble or sandblast it myself and do my own rebluing? Pay for nitride? Chrome?

Frankly, if I can't find a good solution from you boys, I'm slipping it to a cop buddy of mine and buying a Para-Ord NightHawg. Thanks,

Dragon

you could try waxing it (the gun). renaissance wax is awesome but car wax should work if you've got it laying around. it's probably the best rust preventative short of an actual refinish, which actually isn't a bad option considering you just need the slide done.

alternatively, you could not carry the gun against your bare skin. the answer is obvious: a girdle. preferably made of velour.

Anyone who has worked in just about any job knows that this idea that “The customer is always right” is a bit of an overstatement; more of an ethos than a statement of fact. Most of the time the customer is simply mistaken and it’s a matter of finding the best way to set the record straight. But sometimes the customer is just a bullheaded jerk, or an egotistical ignoramus, or a scammer, and it’s these bad consumers who make it harder for the rest of us to get good service.
With that in mind, here is our list of the usual shopping suspects…

1. The Blackmailer
Modus Operandi: Trots out the threat of a bad review on social media in order to receive preferential treatment.
How It Hurts The Rest Of Us: Social media can be a very powerful and effective tool for sharing opinions and for resolving complaints. Every jerk that dangles the sword of a bad Yelp review or a nasty writeup on TripAdvisor in order to be treated like a VIP taints the overwhelming majority of legitimate reviews, making it more difficult for consumers to find dependable information and giving business owners another reason to disregard crowdsourced opinions.

2. The Borrower
Modus Operandi: Takes advantage of stores’ return policies in order to use a new TV, computer, camera, for a short period of time and then get a refund.
How It Hurts The Rest Of Us: Because of serial returners, more retailers are increasingly skeptical of all returns. In addition to restocking fees for people who return items, a growing number of stores are now scanning IDs of customers who return products and rejecting some returns if a remote computer’s algorithm determines a shopper has made too many returns.

3. The Faker
Modus Operandi: Fakes disabilities or illnesses to receive special treatment, like being able to board early on airplanes.
How It Hurts The Rest Of Us: This one is particularly nasty, as it takes advantage of the very fact that not all disabilities are visible. To most of us, the notion that you’d fake a disability just to save a few minutes at the airport, or just to scalp good concert tickets, is anathema. In the end, this repugnant form of line-jumping just slows the whole process down. Even worse, some people with legitimate disabilities may feel like they are being scrutinized because of the actions of others.

That's because no one learns anymore how to cause pain without damage.

Punches and kicks are no no, stress positions are no no. Slaps done incorrectly you could hook an eye or do something stupid.

Spanking though? That's idiot proof, pretty much can't permanently hurt a kid, you're more likely to break your arm than to damage a kid through spanking.

Journalist and filmmaker Robert Young Pelton just visited the growing conflict in South Sudan, creating an entire Vice issue in the process. Here's how he came back alive.

58-year old Pelton is a former ad executive turned war correspondent who's made a career out of visiting the front lines of conflicts. Back then, he collaborated with Steve Jobs to promote the launch of the original Macintosh, but now he's been kidnapped by the United Self Defense Force of Colombia, survived an assassination attempt by Islamic terrorists in Uganda and rescued American Taliban fighter John Walker Lindh from Afghanistan's Northern Alliance.

For his latest project, he traveled to South Sudan with a former Lost Boy, coming back with a story so good, Vice Magazine decided to devote an entire issue to it; the first time a single issue of the magazine has been devoted to a single topic and written by a single person. We talked to him about surviving and working in remote war zones.

  India has a public urination problem. And one vigilante group has taken matters into their own hands. Riding the streets of Mumbai on top of a bright orange tanker, masked members of activist group The Clean Indian patrol the city, giving anyone they find relieving themselves in an inappropriate place a public drenching with a water cannon.

In a video released by the group, who declare that the solution to public urination is public urination – “by the Pissing Tanker”, members of the public are seen laughing delightedly as the men get a shock soaking. It’s an extreme and apparently effective solution, but some have criticised the group, branding their actions too harsh, and accusing them of focusing on the perpetrators rather than the root problem.


In the slickly made video, accompanied by dramatic background music, we open with shots of men doing something they shouldn’t be in the streets.

This funny video, which you can watch below, has a serious message. Public urination is against the law in India, but is a common sight. As netizens have been quick to point out, however, the activists may be aiming their water cannon at the wrong target: more public toilets and better hygiene awareness would help the problem, but it’s hard to make a slick video about that. The Pissing Tankard gang shows no sign of putting down their cannon, though, if their motto is anything to go by: “We’ll stop when you stop.”

North Korea called the United States “a living hell” while offering a comprehensive listing of criticisms against the country it called “the world’s worst human rights abuser” in a news report from state-run media Wednesday.

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.


It seems to be part of the Hermit Kingdom’s new strategy of combating a damning United Nations report — in which more than 300 people, including prison camp survivors and guards, were interviewed — which concluded it was committing human rights violations “without any parallel in the contemporary world.”

Among abuses the North cites are homelessness, unemployment, prisons, and government monitoring “every movement of its citizens” under the pretext of “national security.”

“Such poor human right records in the U.S. are an inevitable product of the ruling quarters’ policy against humanity,” the report reads, while going on to mention the not guilty verdict of George Zimmerman in the Trayvon Martin murder case was proof of America’s “racialism.”

Of course, one could argue that North Korea does bring up valid critiques: unemployment is still too high, the debate over NSA spying is still raging, and the U.S. does in fact imprison more people than any other country.

But that’s a pretty tough sell coming from a nation which restricts outside contact and freedom of movement, and suffers from regular shortages of electricity, food, and other basics. And of course, there’s around 200,000 people in secret prison camps where “unspeakable atrocities” comparable to Nazi warcrimes occur.

The NRA and gun rights groups should be all over this shit like a fat woman on a moderately attractive man covered in barbeque sauce.

This is a perfect country for anti-gunners, a country that has ".06 guns per 100 people" and "only 130,000 guns are in civilian hands in a country of 25 million". There is no gun crime, the only time people are shot is by the state. No drive by shootings, no school or mall shootings, none of that.

The Brady group model of perfection if there ever was one.

Of course its also a shithole where the people are starving, the government abuses make the NSA reading our emails look downright pleasureable in comparison, and freedoms are only for some fat guy with a doofy haircut in Pyongyang and his wealthy friends. Nobody can fight back, nobody can defend themselves from being sent to death camps, nobody can go and get the food that was donated to the country, they can't do anything but be slaves.

And this is what Bloomberg, shot in the head former milf (she's still fuckable, now with an extra hole), and the Brady bunch wants for America. For Americans to be disarmed just like the Norks, to be unable to fight for their freedom, to be complete slaves to the douches in Washington and their wealthy friends.


Much like the NRA hopping on the "gay marriage & gun rights = freedom" bandwagon, I doubt they would go for this either. Probably still bitch about video games or something

Several studies by Greek and foreign scientists have indicated that the Ancient Greek language, apart from being a living language, is also a therapeutic one, as it is said to posses the ability to cure many disorders, for example dyslexia.

According to a theory by British classicist Professor Eric A. Havelock, which is based on the ancient Greek philosopher Plato, the ancient Greek alphabet caused many abstract concepts to be conceived in the ancient Greek world, due to the unique brain activation of its users. The theory is presented along with many other conclusions by top foreign scientists, philologists and linguists in the 400-page volume ‘The Alphabet and the Brain: The Lateralization of Writing,” which was published in 1988 by Springer.

The scientific results that contribute to the theory of Havelock include:

1. The ‘Broca’s area’ in the left -usually- hemisphere of the human brain, which is linked to speech production, was activated more than usual due to the Greek alphabet, which for the first time had successfully employed vowels for writing.

2. The human brain was radically redesigned.

3. The above mentioned change in brain function caused a substantial change in the attitude of the ancient Greek alphabet’s users, for which the need of communication with other citizens through the art of theater appeared.

Another published scientific research by the team of Greek psychiatrist Ioannis Tsegos, showed that the measurable indicators of verbal intelligence and deductive thinking were accelerated across a group of 25 non-dyslexic children, who were taught Ancient Greek through accepted methods for two hours per week, between the ages of 8 and 12. In another equal group of children that weren’t taught Ancient Greek, the study revealed that the respective indicators were decelerated. Both groups were taught similar lessons.

Australian university researcher Kate Chanock, however, took Tsegos’ study a step further in her work “Help for a dyslexic learner from an unlikely source: the study of Ancient Greek” (2006: Literacy), the Australian researcher describes how she cured an English-speaking person from dyslexia by using Ancient Greek.
