History of flipping the finger

When did "flipping the bird" begin?

There is nothing nauurally obscene about holding out a finger, flipping the finger is a cultural thing:

And why is it called "the bird"?

It's interesrting, some folks say that flipping a finger has been an insult for over two thousand years!

"An Athenian comedian by the name of Aristophanes provided the earliest literary reference to the gesture – he created a feisty character who gave Socrates the finger."

In 1644, John Bulwer suggested the use of the middle finger for the deaf as a "natural expression of scorn and contempt."

Are obscene gestures illegal?


In many states you can have people summoned to cpourt for flipping the bird!

It falls under "fighting" statutes, gestures that are incendiary, "fighting words" which are likely to escalate into road rage or assult.

I’m amazed how many citizens don’t understand thelimits to the protection of the First Amendment

Chickens are good mousers

Most city folks don’t know this, but chickens have nasty eating habits.

They will eat almost anything, even cannibalizing their fallen brethren, and just like their dinosaur ancestors they love to kill and eat small mammals like mice:

Dogs are smelly critters, and I’m always hearing questions like “why does not dogs butt smell like cheese” and “Why does my dog’s feet smell like Fritos”?

Well, it turns out that “Frito Feet” is an actual medical condition in dogs, caused by bacteria.

Audie Murphy’s wife dies

Everybody knows about Audie Murphy, America most decorated Hero, but few people know about Pam Murphy, who died this year at age 90.

Pamela Murphy was a hero in her own right, spending decades helping injured war veterans, including Audie who suffered from PTSD:

“He had emerged from the crucible of war, but he had not emerged unchanged. He had seen men die—ripped apart by machine guns, run over by tanks, obliterated by mortar fire. He had killed many men himself, supposedly accounting for 240 Germans single-handedly”.

“She worked as VA patient liaison at the Sepulveda Veterans Administration hospital, treating every veteran who visited the facility as if they were a VIP. Any soldier or Marine who came into the hospital got the same special treatment from her. She would walk the hallways with her clipboard in hand making sure her boys got to see the specialist they needed.

If they didn't, watch out. Her boys weren't Medal of Honor recipients or movie stars like Audie, but that didn't matter to Pam. They had served their country. That was good enough for her. She never called a veteran by his first name. It was always "Mister." Respect came with the job.

"Nobody could cut through VA red tape faster than Mrs. Murphy," said veteran Stephen Sherman, speaking for thousands of veterans she befriended over the years.”

About Audie Murphy

Audie Murphy (the most decorated U.S. soldier in history) won almost every US medal for heroism, including the Silver Star, which he won twice.

Murphy was the real-deal war hero, and it was national news when the photogenic little scrapper (Audie was not very tall), played himself in the 1955 smash hit move “To Hell and Back”, a really, really great movie, especially when you know that Murph is playing himself!

Audie Murphy

If you every See Audie playing himself in the movie “To Hell and Back”. There will be no question, Audie Murphy was America’s great war hero:

But unfortunately, Audie also abandoned his family and committed adultery on Pam, not exactly heroic . . .

Tell me, where are today’s heroes’?

Avoid Cruel Mouse sticky paper traps

I made an impulse purchase at Wal-Mart, sticky glue pads to catch mice.

I just assumed that the critters would be caught and poisoned, but I was wrong.

Here is what it looked like, a cute baby mouse, terrified and exhausted:

This guy fed the mouse alive to outdoor birds!

The directions said to simply throw baby mouse in the trash, but I could not stay-up all night as the poor thing slowly died of dehydration.

So, the question became, how do we “execute” this child mouse in a humane way?

1 – Eaten Alive: The dogs wanted her badly, but we feared that we would be picking sticky mouse parts of their fur for a week.

2 – Drowning: Janet suggested dunking her in a bucket of water, but that was also deemed cruel.

3 – Execution by Firing squad: I donned my black hood and decided on a quick blast from a 12 gauge shotgun, vaporizing her brains instantly, so she would mnot know that hit her.

I did the shot, spot on, but we were surprised that there we so many mouse parts scattered across the lawn . . .

Evidently, Janet had loaded this 12 gauge with a bullet instead of pellet round!

Instead of blasting the mouse with tiny lead pellets I nuked her with what amounts to a giant 72 caliber bullet.

The Dalai Lama on what is suprising about humanity!

Wise stuff, too true!

The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, answered,


Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.

Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.

And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present;

the result being that he does not live in the present or the future;

he lives as if he is never going to die,

and then dies having never really lived."

My results show that I'm at no risk of hippiness, a great relief:

Ok, you conservative soul. Do you even believe in global warming? Loosen that necktie a little, and try some organic food. It actually does taste better. And go to a farmer's market--they're fun.

How to find an armed Taxi Cab Driver in the Dominican Republic

We love visiting the Dominican Republic and Haiti, but some of the neighborhoods can be a tad dangerous.

Not all of the poor a grateful for help!

The huge garbage pileups have caused a Cholera epidemic, several days of projectile diaherra, but Cholera is easily treatable with antibiotics.

It's almost inevitable, so enjoy the dance and remember that it's a great way to loose a few puounds.

Garbage and Feral Feces (Loose stools) have caused a Cholera epedimic

Janet and I are not allowed to carry our own guns, and we don’t want to become victims, so we always insist that we find a cab driver with a working handgun.

We start by asking to see their valid permit:

A sample valid handgun permit for the Dominican Republic - Accept no substitutes

Beware of cab drivers who have a handgun for solely for threatening people!

I know that bullets are expensive, but in addition to the permit, you should insist to see the handgun and inspect it to ensure that it is fully loaded.

You must also judge whether the cab driver is ready and willing to shoot, if needed:

Fire lapping a high-powered rifle

See my full notes on Fire lapping a rifle.

These are parts of our class notes for conventional high-powered rifle competitions.

All brand new conventional competition high powered rifles should use fire-lapping to ensure that the barrel is super-smooth and clear.

How to fire lap a rifle

After each of the first 10 shots:

1 - Remove the bolt

2 – STARTING from the breech end, run a brush wet with bore cleaner one-way out toward the muzzle end of the rifle.

3 – After the brush exits at the muzzle end, remove it and withdraw the rod.

4 – Run a clean patch, one way from the breech to the muzzle end of the barrel. The third patch should look clean.

For shots 11-24, the fire-lapping is done every two shots.

After 24 rounds, the rifle is ready to accept telescopic sights.
