I want one of these!

It'd look good in the back yard as a Noon Gun.

Gimme one of these!

(Play nice, right click and download - don't spawn from my server, please!)

UPDATE: Wonderwife™ says I can have one - if I can figure out how to make it dig her a garden. Nope - I can't have it if *I* dig her a garden, I have to figure out how to do it with the gun. Without damaging the house. Or the neighbors. Dang. It's always something in the details...

UPDATE II: The Instapilot chimes in with this:

You can have your gun.

I'll take one of these

And spend Saturdays trying to fly up my own a$$hole...hehe.

While we're here, I might as well be efficient and stick in something else completely unrelated to the above.

I'm sure that military balloting is going to be somewhat bollixed-up this year, seeing as how we're fighting a two campaign war at the moment. But the services are trying to make sure that servicemember voices get heard, regardless of where they are, or who they want to vote for. That's always the way it was when I served - and I never ran across a situation where the Chain of Command was openly shilling a candidate. Anybody who has provable, sourceable info on that occuring - please send it to me - I'll happily forward it to the Inspector General's office. Recognize that if you *do* send something like that to me - please don't think it's because I support that - I don't, and I'll turn it in in a heartbeat. I'll be nice and strip your name out of it, but that's about it.

But I don't expect to see anything like that.

Anyway - here's an example of the sort of thing that DoD sends out to units to assist troops and Voting Assistance Officers to 'Git 'r done!"

Oct 4 Voter Information News. It's a pdf (Sorry, Triticale!) so you'll need Adobe Reader or Acrobat.
