I'm so old . . . wait, I'm not that old. That game was before my time, obviously. I had to look it up.

Willie Mitchell
Cleveland Indians (1909-1916)
Detroit Tigers (1916-1919)
I also had to look up what a "bingle" was.

The moment the Federal Government no longer has the manpower and money to enforce it’s edicts in regards to land, a huge amount of land and water will be open to live on.

Seriously, if the feds can longer send men with guns to stop people from living on federal land, an entire country is available. For free

Cute little thing. They identified it as a .25. It is a .22LR

Irritating.

Semi-related:

Yesterday, I talked with some foreign exchange/returnee students.

Granted, they were not American, but one had spent time in America as a kid.

Not one of them knew who either Bill Cosby or OJ Simpson were and had not heard anything about their criminal cases.

Being an afficionado of OLD comics and the like I remember that advertisement!

I love that he wears a suit when repairing random rich peoples' radios.

Now excuse me, there is some asshole who kicked sand in my face that I have to beat the fuck out of with help from a lot of muscles and The Deadliest Man Alive.

In the modern day, Bill is on welfare because nobody has radios anymore...at least nobody has radios that can be repaired.

Tom is still bringing home a paycheck and has steady employment.
