Paranoia will destroy ya

The Heartless Libertarian has the skinny on just how professionally paranoid the US Secret Service is. I understand that protecting their charges is their #1 job, but good grief. Not that I'd ever be a candidate for POTUS (Hear those skeletons rattling in the closet?), but if I were, I'd rather take my chances than know that something like this was going on in the name of protecting me.

Of course, I'd also be the first POTUS (as far as we know) who would be carrying as a matter of course.

No. Absolutely not.

Hollyweird is considering a remake of "Red Dawn". Given the current propensities of that bunch, the movie will be 5 minutes long and end with all the Americans dead at the end of their failed negotiations.

Mormon women teach about food storage

(Via Frugal Squirrels)

Think you've got plenty of food on hand for an emergency? Take a look at these women then go check our your storage again. Ready for another trip to Costco?

When you're done watching these, settle in for a while, and watch some of the other videos that show up in the sidebar. There's a lot of interesting information there.

2/27/2016--Doing a check of the site stats, I noticed that this page has suddenly zoomed to the top of the list and that I'm suddenly getting a lot of hits from eastern Europe.  Are the two related?  I can't tell; I don't pay Google for the professional version of their stats package.  Hey, this is a hobby.  

However, in checking the page to see why it had suddenly become so popular, I noticed that both of the YouTube videos have gone missing.  *sigh*  You have to love the ephemeral nature of the Intertubz.  However, all is not lost.  If you are truly interested in how the Mormons do food storage, YouTube still has tens if not hundreds of videos you can go through.  There is a lot of duplication, but also a lot of good information.  The Mormons have been doing food storage for a long time, and they've gotten pretty good at it.  We'd be better off as a society if we all emulated them in that area.

OK, I'm not too thrilled that someone actually cut open a Tiger I, but since it can't be undone here's a brief glimpse inside one of the most feared tanks of WWII:
