News of the Day


5-31: In memory of all Americans who died defending liberty. Their sacrifice will not be forgotten. Semper fidelis. Team Crunchinator in the Hobbies department reports that 9 work units were completed earning them 2,134 points last week. It pays to whip your termites.

5-28: Good news about the Bhut Jolokias in the Chili Pepper Gardener's Diary in the Chili Peppers section of the Hobbies department.

5-27: The NRA Archive is updated today with the monthly NRA page features for May: 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.

5-26: "I urge you to help ensure every American gun owner's voice is heard and heeded on Election Day by taking action now." Find out how on the President's Column in the NRA section of the Extra department.

5-25: Since I was in Hawaii last week, the Folding@home statistics are double than normal this week. Team Crunchinator earned 4,207 points by crunching 18 work units. See it four yourself in the Hobbies department.

5-24: If you were on your toes you may have noticed that I've not updated the website for the last 9 or 10 days. Well, I have a great excuse, I was in Hawaii! Oh yeah. Eat your heart out everybody except those of you who live in Hawaii. I'm pretty busy unpacking and getting things back in order around the house so all I have for you today is the Joke of the Weak. Enjoy.

5-12: "As NRA members, we share a sense of pride in what our members and dedicated staff have accomplished." And what would that be you ask? Wayne LaPierre will be happy to tell you on the Standing Guard page in the NRA section of the Extra department.

5-10: Team Crunchinator had what would appear to be an amazing week, or a glitch in the servers. Somehow we earned 2124 points by crunching an impossible 18 work units. Holy smokes. I triple checked the number, that's what they gave me. We are slummin' it in the Hobbies department today.

5-7: Warmer days are helping the Ghost Chili crop. Read all about it in the Chili Pepper Gardener's Diary in the Chili Peppers section of the Hobbies department.

5-6: "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.

5-4: A good week for Team Crunchinator over in the Hobbies department. Termie the termite and his sidekick Termette managed to earn 2,124 points last week from crunching 9 work units. Now I'm almost sorry that we are having a termite inspector coming to the house tomorrow. I'll have to hide those two in a jar in the bureau.

5-3: MAY DAY! MAY DAY! Echo seven zero niner this is Tango Bravo Charlie, the House of Wacks has capsized in the Sea of Mediocrity. I say again, this is Tango Bravo Charlie, the House of Wacks has capsized in the Sea of Mediocrity, over. Dang! the radio is out. OK folks, this is going to be a rough month, women and children to the lifeboats! Hurry, WOMEN AND CHILDREN FIRST!!
.......... OK, they're gone. Dibs on the remote, hey guys, the Man Show is on and I have Girls Gone Wild on tape!!

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.
