    Time travel?

  • sloopyinca||

    You missed our time travel conversation on the 2A thread from last night. I'll admit it was short but also to the point.

  • sarcasmic||

    This is marked as being posted at 8am, yet it did not appear until 8:30.

    Did it fall through a wormhole or something?

  • Rich||

    ML @ "9:00".

  • LTC(ret) John||

    Finally, HAZ ENUFF LABELZ!

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    Is Putin coming on to him?

  • Bardas Phocas||

    If I was into middle aged tough guys - I would totally go for Vlad.

  • LTC(ret) John||

    Middle aged? Isn't he 60?

  • TheSpiteHouse||

    60 is the new 45 (for those who exercise a lot).

    Damn, a winner already. OK folks, shows over. Wait for AM Links, Fist wins.

    Peter Marshall: What are "Forward", "I Can Help" and "Yes we can"?

    George Gobel: I don't know but it's coming from the next apartment.

  • Rich||

    "Lonesome George" Gobel.

    Sheesh, Tim, how old *are* you?

  • Bee Tagger||

    I knew the PT in Putin stood for Physical Therapist.

  • Bee Tagger||

    That's way too effusive for a German.

  • LTC(ret) John||

    "Ja, gut."

    /Click of phone hanging up

  • Rich||

    Without the label in the last panel I would have no idea who that person is supposed to be.

  • LTC(ret) John||

    And they mocked Bok's labelz at the (art) Academy!

  • Bee Tagger||

    I still think it's Krang.

  • Restoras||

    You know who else was a terrible artist?

  • LTC(ret) John||

    Picasso?

  • Rich||

    I know a guy who says "Of course, it's appropriate to drop the first three letters."

    Well some people try to pick up girls
    They get called assholes
    This never happened to Pablo Picasso

    The girls would turn the colour of a juicy avocado
    When he would drive down their street in his El Dorado

    He could walk down your street
    Girls could not resist his stare
    So Pablo Picasso was never called an asshole
    Not like you
    Wow!

    Well he was only 5'3"
    But girls could not resist his stare
    Pablo Picasso never got called an asshole
    Not in New York
    Wow!

  • Rich||

    Nice. From "Les Mis"?

  • sloopyinca||

    No video, Colonel? Here you all go.

  • sarcasmic||

    I've heard that before, but it wasn't Bowie.

  • TheSpiteHouse||

    The Modern Lovers (Jonathan Richman)

  • sloopyinca||

    Terry Schiavo?

  • Restoras||

    FTW! Now I have to wipe my screen of the coffee I spewed all over it.

    Wagner?

  • Rich||

    My initial perception (w/o the ripped bod and the speech balloon) was Inspector Clouseau.

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    I'm not sure why Cameron is masturbating during the call; Obama doesn't give him a second thought.

  • The Late P Brooks||

    That's Putin's subtle way of saying, "I'm gonna BEND YOU OVER"?

  • LTC(ret) John||

    I rather think it will be a voluntary bend.

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    While he's already down there bowing anyway...

  • The Late P Brooks||

    What did the Gnomes of Zurich say?

  • LTC(ret) John||

    Gruezi - warten Sie fur unsere Ordnungsruf!

    What's Hillary doing in Germany?

  • Caleb Turberville||

    What's Miss Piggy doing in Germany?

  • Restoras||

    Friday Funnies is really just a jobs program for one guy.

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    Correction: Two guys. Or is Payne here on merit?

  • Restoras||

    No, you are right. Payne is terrible also but for somre reason is more easily forgettable.

  • Restoras||

    Question for the early day Reasonoids:
    .40 S&W or .357 Sig? Preferences, positives/negatives for those with any insight?

  • LTC(ret) John||

    .40 - better stopping power vs zombies or looters.

  • Restoras||

    Thanks LTC. What kind of metrics can I look at to assess this stuff? Muzzle velocity?

  • LTC(ret) John||

    If you are better at math than I (which is true of many folks) I suspect initial velocity, weight of round, max effective range and all should be figured in.

  • Corneliusm||

    Force = Mass * Velocity^2

    I would say that too much of one and not enough of another has tradeoffs. Slower heavier rounds punch and cause all sorts of shock on the target, but can be easily stopped by cover or kevlar. On the other hand, 357 sig is smaller and faster at the muzzle (about 200fps faster, give or take), but has a tendency to pass through anything you shoot, which means a lot of energy is wasted unnecessarily behind your target. Similar arguments can be made between the heavy .45ACP and fast 10mm round.

    Plus, there's cost and availability. You won't find 357 sig well-stocked (cheap) in your local gun store or walmart.

    FWIW, the cartridges are same diameter, and I believe my SW M&P 40 can be converted to 357 Sig with just a barrel change, but I've never attempted it.

  • sloopyinca||

    Draco AK-47 pistol, and paint the tip orange.

    After paying out the settlement for the illegal stop and detention, the state you live in can buy both of the other ones for you.

  • LTC(ret) John||

    Restoras - I think sloopy has the best advice here.

  • Gray Ghost||

    .40 is going to be much easier to find ammo for, just saying. Said ammo, judging by a brief look at cheaper than dirt, is about 1/2 to 2/3 of the cost too.

    OTOH, .357 Sig is going to shoot flatter and penetrate better. Felt recoil is supposed to be greater, not sure if that's a concern for you.

    I don't know which one's harder on a pistol.

  • db||

    .40 all the way. Ammo is way easier to find and the bottlenecked .357 case will wear out faster if you care to reload. Also the .357 runs at higher pressure and will be louder and have more perceived recoil, which also has an impact on the longevity of the firearm.

  • Caleb Turberville||

    What's up with Cameron's lip?

  • LTC(ret) John||

    Bok was trying to show it was stiff?

  • Caleb Turberville||

    Of course, how stupid of me.

  • sloopyinca||

    It's sad that in the 21st Century, the only realistic looking foreign head of state talking head is Netenyahu. That's got to be either a Zionist plot or an anti-Jewish plot. I've not decided yet.

  • LTC(ret) John||

    Go with the Zionist Plot!

    When did Roseanne Barr dye her hair blonde and become German Chancellor?

  • sloopyinca||

    1: Don't the use seats with backs on them in most of Europe, or were they all in a bar together watching the results?

    2: Why did three of these people change their last names to that of a nation? I blame Kathy Ireland.

    3: Who outlawed tanning salons in Russia?

    4: In Soviet Russia, Friday Funnies mocks you!

  • Drave Robber||

    2: Why did three of these people change their last names to that of a nation?


    Perhaps it the other way round - one of the nations has been renamed. (With foreign journalists being advised - "remember, it's one word! ONE word!" - again.)

  • Drave Robber||

    I've always felt the fuss over that 'flexible' comment was way overblown, and there is no real-world evidence of any 'flexibility'. Won't start believing it until the shit in Syria (which has little purpose other than annoying Russia over Tartus) starts receding.

  • sloopyinca||

    Retired Philly cop arrested for trying to lure an 8-year old into his car. He has previously been convicted of multiple counts of child porn but served less than a year in jail for those offenses.

    Is the union proud they got this guy his pension?

  • Loki||

    Yes.

    "It's a good shoot child rape."

  • sloopyinca||

    Dumbass drunk cop wrecks his cruiser and tries to hide it in the woods. Oh, he was drunk too.

    I wonder when the "possession of firearms in the commission of a felony" (felony H&R if more than $1k worth of damage to the fence, pole or car since it was not his), enhancer is gonna show up? Or the misconduct charge. Or any of the other shit that he should be charged with.

  • Mr Whipple||

    Well. Someone once told me that if you don't have anything nice to say......

  • Bobarian||

    You'd never comment about friday funnies?

  • sloopyinca||

    I guess two eyewitnesses aren't enough to convict a police officer when he stalks them and starts jacking off in front of them. I guess when one of their own runs away, it's not called resisting arrest, either.

    Overcharging is for proles, not for pervert cops who stalk and masturbate in front of 13 year old girls, destroy the evidence and then resist arrest by fleeing.

  • sloopyinca||

    Dammit, he was found guilty of resisting arrest. My bad.

  • Loki||

    Why the hell is a naked alien sitting behind Putin's desk? And why does said alien have such huge bitch tits? Or is that a female alien?

  • The Late P Brooks||

    .40 S&W or .357 Sig? Preferences, positives/negatives for those with any insight?

    I'm late, and it's already been mentioned, but: Price and availability for .40 is much much better. That's undoubtedly why pistols in .357 Sig look "cheap".
