UPDATE: Sometimes I’ll look up IP geolocator longitude / latitude coordinates and sometimes those will come out at Fort George Meade or Langley or Tyson’s Corner, etc. Sometimes that’s not necessary as named servers will be used, such as the CIA’s open source crowd in Reston, etc. Geolocators are often imprecise, but basically the coordinates for a hit on this post landed on top of the roof of DARPA headquarters located in Arlington, VA. ;-) ///// end update
Exclamation points are important for getting the attention of the DARPA sarcasm detector. Perhaps it makes it easier for them if, at the end of an offscouring of sarcastic statements, the following is added: /// off sarcasm.
Some background that will be useful in battling to be allowed bail for what is surely a crime as detailed below.
The almost five year old Hogue grip add-on for my Glock 19 Gen 4 is now slightly worn out, as depicted above. After getting my North Carolina concealed carry permit, this grip was a gift from a 25 year deputy sheriff. I’m sure he thought a priest, perhaps particularly me, would need all the help I can get, and he’s right about that. So, the other day I splurged and got a grip on the situation and did a new and newly revised for the better grip.
Much better. The material is better, much more heavy-duty, much better fitting, just much better. Kudos to Hogue. But – a word to the wise – keep it away from the mag-release on both sides, otherwise it will interfere with the slide, and then you’re dead.
Meanwhile, BATFE has been apoplectically changing definitions of gun stuff. Everything seems to be defined as an actual gun. I wonder if my new Hogue grip counts as an unregistered weapon of mass destruction all on its own or as an evil add-on that I don’t yet realize is a felony weapons charge that will have me put into a Federal Penitentiary for the rest of my life. Sigh. BATFE needs to get a grip. We do have a 2nd amendment, right? The whole “shall not be infringed” thing, right? And – oh no!!!!! – I used my credit card to make this purchase: BATFE knows everything! Gasp!
Does DARPA really have a Sarcasm Detector? Hah! Yes.
Let’s try it out. Let’s see if this post get’s banned by DARPA:
I LOST MY GRIP IN A BOATING ACCIDENT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dropping the sarcasm, let me say this: shall not be infringed means shall not be infringed. So, such a tautology is sarcasm, but not really, because, I mean… Oh, sorry!!!!! I’m being sarcastic again!!!! ;-)
