    You suppose those so-called anarchists are sitting back right now watching the chaos thinking "man, i did not sign up for this."

    Welp, I got a last minute order in for some powder and primers. I figured I better do it now before everything goes out of stock. Judging by the amount of stuff out of stock at MSS and Grafs, I just barely got it.

    I hate panics.

    Maybe this virus will keep all of the old geezers out of the stocked trout areas so I can get a chance

    That’s where they are all going to stay isolated.

    I just stocked up on projectile - Didn't need anything but .30 (M2 ball and Carbine) But pretty much stocked on everything "just in case". I would like to be able to go shoot and not have to hoard.. :p

    You know I always thought the reason I never got sick is because I drink, heavily. Drink enough whiskey to kill everything but myself.

    Turns out it's probably my severe social anxiety and my commitment to avoid any and all social interaction. Which I've been criticized for my entire life.


    I'm gonna keep drinking just in case it's that.

    My doctor told me I'm an alcoholic because I drink alone. No, I'm a mechanic and I hate people.

    Did he really? I used to live alone so who was I supposed to have a beer or a shot with? The dogs were home. Does that count?

    Well, on the subject of boozing all I can say is........

    After much in-depth study and experimentation I've concluded that pouring alcohol in my mouth never once enhanced my life. It just seemed like it at the time.

    :)

    Addendum: I decided that making my liver cry was cruel and unjust.

    I also drink more than the recommended amount, she called it a pattern of abuse. I call it dealing with truck drivers.
    I don't know many mechanics who aren't also heavy drinkers.

    Then there are the people that wonder why someone would buy or drink alcohol in the morning. The whole world doesn't work 9 to 5, people.

    You can't drink all day if you don't start in the morning.

    I quit drinking when my cardiologist told me if I take one more shot my enlarged heart will split open and I will be dead before I hit the floor.

    since I quit drinking and retired I find I have no *******s in my life, and I'm pretty sure my former *******s have one less ******* in their lives.

    something changed. my internet speed just jumped from a dismal .66 megs to 9 megs. I can download operating systems. I see all of a .gif file.

    i'm going to be real disappointed if it drops back.
