Alliteration? You mean like "Perfect in a positive plethora of possible performance paradigms"?

Personally, I think to add emphasis it is interesting to always add alliteration.

Of course it is! I phrase it that way so that the repetition would reinforce the statement in those who cannot grasp the statement without such reinforcement. You see, redundancy allows repetition, implied or overt, to aid people to better understand that statement. It helps people "make it their own", you see, and keep the thoughts expressed in their mind better than if there was no redundancy. Do you now understand why I phrased it as I did? It was, after all, a rhetorical device to help you and others better understand the truth of the statement.

Isn't "perfect in every way" redundant? How is it possible to be perfect in less than every way and still be perfect?

Got me. I can't afford what I shoot now, and I sure as hell wouldn't shoot one of those things even if I was paid to do it (well, if they paid enough, maybe). I think some people do something to prove something to someone else. I got over that a long, long time ago. After all, when you're perfect in every way you have to prove nothin' to nobody.

$40 each. 2400 gr. 25,400 '# muzzle. 277 '# recoil. What the fuck do you shoot with that? M1 Abrams? Give me a Dirty Thirty and I am fine. We don't have an M1 Abrams open season in NB.

Why?

BTW... anytime the rangemaster says, "lock slowly" twice, I just wouldn't lock. I'd leave in case there was an explosion.

All flights are canceled in the southwest. Not us.

Hot air is so thin a heavy plane can not lift off at 117 or higher.

I have reconsidered. Free speech should not be territorial.

Did Rap just plagiarize 'Defending your life'? Clever and soft touch nonetheless.

Mom, I can't check in again until this evening, so stay as sober as you can can remember that Amos and gnu have the bail money, depending on whether you need it in the US or Canada. Remember, Acme has your passport and you can't leave the country without it -- remember what happened the last time you tried. I think Homeland Security has "shoot to badly wound" order now...no more water balloons!!

Bee-dubya-ell started it! I just reported on what I did on Saturday! It's his fault! Punish him! Ground him! Ground him! And ground Donuel too! There ain't no such word even in German as what he said! He's thinking of "sturm und drang"! Ground him! You have to use words from der echte Welt and not from der Traumwelt with Mom!! Ground him and him!

On a side note, we're off to Seattle in three and a half hours to have folks at the Fred Hutch and SCCA examine and discuss treatments with Pat. But I'll check in, so don't do anything naughty or I'll tell!

Well, Bee-Dubya, it isn't the biggest "buffalo gun." There was the .50-90, the .50-100, and even the .50-110. These fifty calibers fired a 600+ grain bullet. I can't afford one, much less the ammunition! But just for you, a real man's gun! Let me know how it works out for you.

Donuel, I haven't signed anything in blood since I did that deal with Ole Skratch in Norway.

Recoil? From a "buffalo gun" firing .45-70 rounds? Who can imagine?

You could get a Thompson/Center Contender with a .45-70 barrel* and experience the same amount of recoil but with the added thrill of potentially knocking yourself unconscious when that recoil slaps you in the forehead with the gun barrel. Wear a crash helmet.

* The Contender is "modular". Barrels are available in umpteen calibers and they all bolt onto the same frame.

Well, I went to the range and zeroed my .45-70 (.45-70 Government, with 405 grain bullets) so I can start doing long range target shooting. It's not zeroed at even 100 yards (91.44 meters) because it has lots and lots of recoil

Friday. Hard-fought through the work week to reach this point, when I have three days off in a row. I work a compressed schedule of four 10-hour days, so I'm a tired wreck by Friday night, but as long as the dogs get fed and the garage door closed, we're fine. And tomorrow is Saturday (too bad we have a heat advisory for the weekend, it means I have to get up at dawn if I want to work in the yard).

Beware the purple carrot.
Carrots in the US are orange and can tan you up with high quantities of carotene. I bought a bag of frozen mixed colored carrots. Each color yellow etc. did not amount to one large carrot. I used them for stews and casseroles. The scant few slices of the blue carrots actually dyed any added meat to a deathly blue color. Now I know why we don't grow many blue carrots anymore. I knew a girl that ate mostly free mangos off the trees in Maui for 2 years. She turned orange. If you are fair, beware the blue carrot.

At least plagiarists exhibit good taste. I'm thinking of Melania.

Love your little thread-mates,

Be kind to your betters,

To the tune of "I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major-General"

Rap is the very model of an unrepentant plagiarist
He steals from poets, playwrights, men of letters and anthologists
His posts are often borrowed and they lack originality
It surely is a symptom of a disturbed personality
He steals from Shakespeare, Pope, and Swift and does so with impunity
His lack of attribution is a blight on our community
It's not that he is ignorant, he worked as a librarian
He really does know better, but he must play the contrarian
He has been warned repeatedly, yet in this crime he does persist
Rap is the very model of an unrepentant plagiarist

The time is not remote, when I
Must by the course of nature die;
When I foresee my special friends
Will try to find their private ends:
Tho' it is hardly understood
Which way my death can do them good,
Yet thus, methinks, I hear 'em speak:
'See, how old Rap begins to break!
Poor gentleman, he droops apace!
You plainly find it in his face.
That old vertigo in his head
Will never leave him till he's dead.
Besides, his memory decays:
He recollects not what he says;
He cannot call his friends to mind:
Forgets the place where last he din'd;
Plies you with stories o'er and o'er;
He told them fifty times before.
How does he fancy we can sit
To hear his out-of-fashion'd wit?
But he takes up with younger folks,
Who for his wine will bear his jokes.

Quoting The Bard is not usually considered plagiarism, since most reasonably educated people recognize the quotation's source without having to be told.

Rapparree's last post was lifted whole from Shakespeare. Hamlet .   Act 2, Scene 2.

BULLPOOP! It was also lifted from The Tempest, Act 4, Scene 1.

But I must say,

To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Amos is but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. He is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.


And you can quote ME.

I have of late?but wherefore I know not?lost all my mirth,
Forgone all custom of exercises,
And indeed it goes so heavily with my disposition
That this goodly frame, the earth,
Seems to me a sterile promontory;
This most excellent canopy, the air?
Look you, this brave o'erhanging firmament,
This majestical roof fretted with golden fire?
Why, it appears no other thing to me
Than a foul and pestilent congregation of vapors.
What a piece of work is a man!
How noble in reason, how infinite in faculty!
In form and moving how express and admirable!
In action how like an angel, in apprehension how like a god!
The beauty of the world.
The paragon of animals.
And yet, to me,
What is this quintessence of dust?

Our revels now are ended. These our actors,
As I foretold you, were all spirits and
Are melted into air, into thin air:
And, like the baseless fabric of this vision,
The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.

The lights on the wife in tight tights
Or the bribe that the White House can't hide
Or the war that the Navy ignores
That's entertainment!
The plot that is hot grabbing for sex
A President who is suing his ex
Could it be a Narcissus Rex
Trump picks a Nazi and envies Bill Cosby
The clerk who is thrown out of work
By the boss who is thrown for a loss
By the skirt who is doing him dirt
The world is a stage; the stage is a world of entertainment!
It might be a fight like you see on the screen
A wussy grabs pussy then insults the queen
Some great Shakespearean scene
Where everyone cries over incredible lies
Hip hip hooray! Its the American way
The world is a stage; the stage is a world of entertainment!

I think you'll find the post office is one of the bossiest agencies around when it comes to names and designations. For example, there used to be an intersection in Arizona between Ajo and Tucson, where you could head south to go to Organ Pipe National Monument or cross over into Sonoyta, Mexico. That was a "Y" in the road. The post office finally got serious and the town is now "Why, AZ." There were many snowbirds wanting to park their RVs in the vast open private campgrounds and they wanted to receive mail.

Yes, Arco is a city by Idaho (and other western state) standards. There is a little-known federal law requiring that each state designate at least one inhabited area per five thousand square miles as a "city", regardless of its population. In some parts of Wyoming, individual shacks owned by grizzled old prospectors are considered cities.
