Don't get me wrong Powdahound, I'm not signing up to the "Land Rights For Gay Whales" brigade.
Doesn’t like those boxes of 2000 .45 240gr boolits any more than my UPS guy!!!
I am still hated at the local post office for ordering 400 lbs of casting lead that came in 10 flat rate boxes. 40 lbs each.... the limit for the box! They were rips$!+!!!
Speaking of... took these two gems at our state fair... the local Somali future-terrorists getting a taste of home...
I just missed the Linotype era... plus no big printers in Mayberry. Wheel weights on the other hand... now those are controlled substances.Have you read Matthews book, The Paper Jacket? I've read it a couple of times intending to give it a go. I just need to make myself set aside the time. Casting eats up the hours.
A good read on casting, if you're not familiar, is Carlton Shy's little red book (I don't think it has a title). Good info on alloys, heat treating, etc. Not sure it can still be found. It was never popular outside IHMSA circles.
Remember the days when you could get linotype just for hauling it away?
That is last years thing. 2018 winner of food of the year at state fair was deep fried cheeseburger. Watch first video to see that and what won 2019.
I read that book when I was younger. Great read!The next truly revolutionary epoch of human history will be the building of successful nanotechnology. It will redefine medicine and surgery to levels that will be unimaginable. A nanodrone guided by an external operator will be able to kill cancerous tumors, remove potentially fatal blood clots and fatty deposits and repair damaged tissue. More specialized nanobots programmed to home in on certain protein sequences can identify and destroy invading pathogens, or engage in even more advanced tasks such as rebuilding neural pathways damaged by illnesses like Alzheimer's.
Such an innovation will be a red letter day for human civilization. However, it will also mark the day when a new doomsday device has been created that can annihilate everything that we have. A rogue nano agent, even if it cannot self-replicate, will be far worse than the most virulent cancers and hemorrhagic fevers that exist today. And the ability and ease for rogue governments and terrorist organizations to get their hands on a stock of nano agents and program it to do their willing is what makes it even more alarming. A nanoagent caused plague, often referred to as a "grey out", may have first been inadvertently described by HP Lovecraft in his early 1900's extraterrestrial horror story The Colour Out Of Space.

And this winner.... does anyone even know Fat Albert any more? And does anyone really think having a Bill Cosby reference on your booth is a good idea? At least they weren’t selling puddin Pops.

Next year I am taking a real camera with a good lens. That place is comedy gold.
