Egads!

I set bing.com as my browser homepage because they’ve usually got some great images – the cost of which is the strip-‘o-news that appears at the bottom of the page, where this example of questionable editing comes from.

When I first saw it, that center story was not flanked by Olympic stories and had me somewhat concerned.  Have they really all been eliminated?!  Does anybody check this stuff?

Bottle of Red

inkbern

Looking for a new ink to try fountain pen users?  My guess is it’s a little old and dried out, maybe hard to get working.  No word yet on whether or not there’s just the one bottle for everyone to share.

There’s no better answer to socialist nonsense like a little dose of capitalism.

If you do want to soil your pen with this stuff, or for your fountain pen/paper needs, I do highly recommend GouletPens.com.  The prices are great, and they pack your order in feather pillows with more care than any other place I’ve ordered from.

The ’59 Plymouth’s Really Got It!

1959plymouth

The 1959 Plymouth Fury, powered by the Golden Commando V8 engine.  I don’t know if it ran on testosterone or gasoline, but you can bet it used a lot of it.

This commercial is from the Suspense episode on the latest Relic Radio Show. The old jingle’s are fun sometimes.

The Wheeled Body Shield

nov1915popmech

…a wheeled body shield that affords immunity from rifle bullets and shrapnel when advancing upon fortified positions.  The body of this is constructed of tempered-steel plates, the front so rounded and tempered that bullets strike the surface at an angle and glance off without doing harm…

From Popular Mechanics, November, 1915.

When you think of the bomb-cratered, mud-covered battlefields of World War I, it’s no surprise these never rolled farther than the drawing board.  Between artillery fire and terrain, even early tanks were of limited use.  These would have been caskets.

On second thought, maybe after some modifications they could have been enlisted in the fight against Ming?  The technology looks similar.

You know what would come in handy next time, Google Chrome?  The ability to automatically clear out the history upon closing the browser, like every other major browser offers!

And really, shove the cutesy verbage up your cache.
