    That all depends on what the squirrels have been eating. If they've been hitting hazelnuts then very little if any garlic. Acorns gets a little more.

    Spring squirrels get fried or grilled with a dusting of garlic though.

    Mmmmmmmm...........

          The real measure of how the economy is doing- the fewer people that can afford to have fun, the harder times are ahead.

          (If this keeps up, I swear they're going to have to start chartering Pennsic Tour Buses or something just to make it affordable...good luck packing all the pavillions then, though. )

            I have this plan (for after I win the Lottery!) of each year finding a worthy group that just can't get to Pennsic and playing Santa for them. Sending them a notice that any who wish to go would have their pre reg paid, a bus to pick up people and a truck for gear on a set day to take em there and bring em back. Some tents rented and set up and a little shopping cash for Midnight Madness! Throw in some fruity cobbler and Beast N Boar action and sit back and watch the fun.

              Count how many rules this arsehole was breaking.
              Police worker shot during safety demonstration sues for £300,000

              "Keith Tilbury, 51, a control-room operator, was injured after a police marksman's gun went off accidentally.

              Mr Tilbury was one of a dozen staff sitting in a semi-circle around PC David Micklethwaite.

              The constable was giving a lecture to employees and showing the kind of weapons police officers can come up against.

              While he was demonstrating the Smith & Wesson .44 Magnum, the gun used by Clint Eastwood in the Dirty Harry movies, it suddenly went off.

              Civilian Mr Tilbury was blown off his chair and thrown half way across the room.

              Paramedics managed to stabilise him at the Thames Valley headquarters in Kidlington, Oxfordshire. He underwent life-saving surgery at the nearby John Radcliffe Hospital.

              The bullet had miraculously missed all vital organs and passed through his body.

              Although still employed by the police Mr Tilbury has not returned to work.

              PC Micklethwaite said he had no idea the handgun was loaded with live ammunition.

              He was not charged following the shooting but has been taken off firearms duties.

              A second official also told an investigation he believed the weapon was unloaded.


              Mr Tilbury, of Hersham, Surrey, has taken out a High Court writ against the Thames Valley chief constable.

              A Thames Valley Police spokesman confirmed the writ had been received but was unable to make any further comment."


              My underlining. Now may be being a tad dense, but we are talking about a revolver here. Been a while since I used one, but seem to recall that it is not exactly difficult to check........

              Telegraph article
              One assumes he did believe that he knew what he was doing.

              If he claims to abide by the rules posted above, that was attempted murder.
              When I was fifteen, my father thought I knew nothing. When I was twenty-five, I was amazed by how little he thought I'd learned in such a long time.

                The Flanged Mace was a formidable hand-to-hand combat weapon in Medieval times, capable of smashing even the heaviest plate armour when wielded by a mounted knight. Our 7-flanged mace is typical of those used throughout Europe. Equipped with a leather wrist and saddle thong, it features a wire-wrapped, spiral-bound grip and is built on a steel tube, rather than a solid rod, to provide better balance.

                    Ooooooo, pretties...

                    Very nice but there's nowhere I could actually walk around with a sword cane and not get arrested for having one.

                      if i ever need a cane i want a nice pine-covered-in-carmalized-glaze color, and smooth carvings that at first glance you think you see a sweet little flower vine design....... until you stare at it long enough to realize that the vines and flowers define the lines and shadows of a wild orgy.

                      saw it once. took twenty eight minutes for me to understand why i kept looking at it, and why it gave me an odd feeling of being bad.

                            The only one who can get away with bringing knives to a gunfight is SEVINK.
