News of the Day

 

2-28: Joke of the Weak, live it, love it.

2-27: The NRA Archive is updated today with the monthly NRA page features for February: Armed Citizen, Standing Guard, and The President's Column. Each of these features are valuable, information packed columns that you will find extremely helpful and interesting even if you are not a firearms owner yourself. For one, it keeps you apprised of the relative honesty and the intentions of the politicos you vote for. For another, it shows you the value of owning your own firearm for protection, recreation, hobby, business, and because for now anyway... you can. The Archives are available any day of the month from the NRA page in the Extra department, look for the link down at the bottom of the table of contents.

2-25: It's Monday so this must be Folding@home news. We had a somewhat crummy week last week, I'm not sure why, possibly there was some problem connecting to the fah server to get new work units. We earned only 1,832 points and crunched only 9 work units. Visit Team Crunchinator in the Hobbies department and take a gander.

2-21: Like I said on the twelfth, "Yuck it up at the Joke of the Weak. Be there or be humorless."

2-20: "It's a terrible thing when Americans can't trust those elected to enforce the law and protect you from the lawless. But as violent crime explodes in many of America's larger cities, anti-gun politicians are trying to blame and banish your Second Amendment rights for the criminal violence that they either cannot-or will not-control." And he is just getting warmed up. Read John Sigler's article, President's Column, in the NRA section of the Extra department.

2-19: Tuesdays are sort of turning into the Joke of the Weak day, though it's updated every weekday. Take a moment and amuse yourself.

2-18: The Folding@home progress is going much nicer this week than last thanks to Team Crunchinator breaking all of Termies fingers so he's stop playing his damn computer games. We earned 2,447 points by crunching 11 work units. Yay us! It's going down in the Hobbies department.

2-15: Big news in the Chili Pepper Gardner's Diary today. Like a wheel, the seasons turn, and the end of life is greeted with life anew. More details in the Chili Peppers section of the Hobbies department.

2-14: Happy Valentines Day! I know you all love me, but please, send cash instead of cards, candy and flowers. The High School Art page in the Art Portfolio section of the Hobbies department is updated today with another incredibly stupid sketch he drew in high school. If you know what you are looking for, you will see pin holes where I used to have this pinned to my bedroom wall. Almost ALL of those pics were on my wall in my senior year.

2-13: "There is no element in the poisonous alchemy of the globalist gun ban crowd more dangerous to American freedom than the twin evils of gun-owner licensing and firearm registration. Never forget that they exist only as precursors to gun confiscation." This and more from Wayne LaPierre, Vice President of the NRA in his monthly column in the American Rifleman. Visit the Standing Guard column in the NRA section of the Extra department.

2-12: Yuck it up at the Joke of the Weak. Be there or be humorless.

2-11: It's a pretty pathetic week for Team Crunchinator. A mere 7 work units were completed resulting in only a pathetic 1,363 points earned. What is the problem you ask? A freakin' termite named Termie who snuck in long sessions playing a computer game named Prey. He'd better pray I don't get my hands on him! You can view our sickly results on the Team Crunchinator page in the Hobbies department.

2-8: I might be wrapping it up for the season. Read all about it in the Chili Pepper Gardener's Diary in the Chili Peppers section of the Hobbies department.

2-7: You have my pity, mostly because you have another stupid picture to look at that I drew when I was a zitty little punk in high school. More's the pity that I'm a zitty little punk approaching retirement! Check out the drawing on the High School Art page in the Art Portfolio section of the Hobbies department.

2-6: "Armed Citizen" is an article in the "American Rifleman" very similar to one of my favorite feature articles in "Guns & Ammo" called "Armed Response". These articles consist of short accounts describing the use of firearms by private citizens to protect lives and property. These are the stories that the mainstream media ignore because they are not so much interested in presenting the truth as much as they are interested in furthering their anti-gun agendas. Some very interesting reading here. It's going on in the NRA section of the Extra department.

2-5: Have a laugh on the House of Wacks, visit the Joke of the Weak, laugh your laugh then be on your way: happier, saner, and healthier.

2-4: For some reason, the last weeks folding@home stats are a bit low. Possibly because the Team Crunchinator's computers were down for half a day for maintenance. Donno. What I do know is that we earned 1,852 points by crunching 9 work units. Check it out in the Hobbies department.

2-1: As we knock the foul stench of January off our sandals and stride confidently into February, we bid the stale idiocy of last month a long overdue farewell and good riddance. Now we can all look forward to fresh idiocy in the month of February who's expiration date is still a full month away. If you insist on living in the past you can visit January 2008 in the News Archives.


No news on the weekends. The Joke of the Weak is updated every weekday. As usual, the Team Crunchinator page is updated every Monday. The NRA pages: President's Column, Standing Guard and Armed Citizen are updated each month. To catch up on news past visit, the News Archives.
