Re: Hey Art, here's an autism test

Art, didn't you say that your dad was like genius smart, and the inventor type? Engineers/scientists all tend to be more autistic than the general population. The Silicon Valley area also has some of the highest rates of autism, as you would expect [more]

Re: Diversity is our strength

Wow, apparently since 1994, Oswalt has been appeared as an actor in 123 films or TV shows. It's really a wonder how he's not more well known. I've heard his name, and his face is familiar, but I would have never put the two together.

Re: Loss in Youtube Gun Community

By the way, Blesto, when I first read the title of your post, I thought that Hickok had died or something. He's massively popular on YouTube.com as well for gun videos.

Re: Most RBI's in April

Sam Thompson had 61 RBI's in August of 1895, followed by 54 RBI's in September of 1895...

Re: El Niño could be big (or not)

I love this excerpt from the article...LOL. This is from Wired magazine, no less!


El Niño (which is Spanish for “the Niño”) is a recurring weather pattern

Re: Don't Pee on the Alamo

The Alamo is a shrine, and as such demands decorum. When I visited, I was surprised by all the posted rules. You can't even wear a T-shirt in the place if it has profanity printed on it.

Re: This Makes Me Sick

Just be careful about making judgment. It could be that these letters are sent by those who want the general public to riled up by perceived racism, rather than sent by actual racists. We have no idea who sent these letters.....could be anybody.

Re: left eye dominate, right handed shotgun stance

Re: Don't Pee on the Alamo

I've been to the Alamo and I understand it's a very important historical landmark.

But to sentence someone for peeing on a landmark for 18 months in prison with NO possibility of parole is insane. People who rob banks, or rape, or commit [more]

Re: bad news....saw this on Best of...Phil Marti

Although I didn't know Phil very well, I have conversed with him on multiple topics and on multiple boards.

I've always found him to be very informative and easy to talk with. He will be very missed.

Re: A bit OT, but still fascinating

Yeah, it may seem counterintuitive, but if there is a correlation between penalties and success, it's probably because the penalties are indicating aggressive play. Also, think of all the infractions that are not caught by the referees that may [more]

Re: shotgun stance/cross post

By the way, if you're shooting right handed and using the left eye for the sights, how do you place your head on the rifle? Most right hand/right eye shooters simply butt their right cheek on the stock.

How in the hec do you do it if you [more]

Re: shotgun stance/cross post

If you're a right hand shooter, meaning using the right hand to puller trigger, and right shoulder to press the gun stock back on, typically, you should step your left foot a bit forward. The back foot allows you to keep balance during the recoil. [more]
