Good news/bad news

The bad news: Texas resident aA hasn't posted anything to his blog in over a year.
The good news:  He forwards me a lot of good stuff like this, that I post to my blog for the enjoyment of thousands hundreds dozens of people around the world!

In the news this week, a Southern California man was put under 72-hour psychiatric observation when it was found he owned 100 guns and had (by rough estimate) 1 million rounds of ammunition stored in his home. The house also has a secret escape tunnel.

The television reporter said: "Wow! He has about a million machine gun bullets!" and the headline referred to it as a "massive weapons cache".

By California standards someone owning even 100,000 rounds would be called "mentally unstable".

If he lived elsewhere, such as Arizona, he'd be called "an avid gun collector."

In Oklahoma, he'd be called "a novice gun collector".

In Utah, he'd be called "moderately well prepared", but they'd probably reserve judgment until they made sure that he had a corresponding quantity of stored food.

In Montana, he'd be called "the neighborhood 'Go-To' guy".

In Idaho, he'd be called "a likely gubernatorial candidate".

In Wyoming, he'd be called "an eligible bachelor".

and... In Texas, he'd be called "a Hunting Buddy"

  5. He needs the 72-hour psychiatric observation, because he didn't use his tunnel.

  6. Reminds me of my uncle, back in Illinois during the 1960's. He dug a huge honkin' hole in the back yard and built like a 12'x12' room down there with reinforced concrete walls, floor, and ceiling, with a tunnel featuring two blast doors that led back to the house. He buried it all under around ten feet of dirt, then landscaped the top. Indoors, shelves and lockers with food, water, weapons, and ammo, along with other amenities.

  7. In Oregon he'd be called Innominatus.
