This n That Thursday

I was pondering this morning.  1) I'm officially fed up with the election and it's only February. 2) We have nine months until the election. 3) That's like being impregnated by Satan.  You have nine months before you see just what kind of Hell you're in for.  4) Last night, before I had done the month math, we were talking about the election and quoted that poem to Hubs: "What rough beast, it's hour come round at last, slouches toward Bethlehem to be born?"  Creepy when you put it all together.  I think no matter who wins the presidency, we're all going to lose. How bad it's going to be depends on whose ass ends up in the big chair, and we won't know even then until that ass starts issuing orders.

Why, yes, I am a conspiracy theorist.

Speaking of which, we were at the Wallyworld the other day checking to see if they had any .22 ammo in - which we do whenever we think about it while we're in there.  (If you know ammo, you know why. If not, there's a huge shortage of .22 ammo in the nation.  Can't find the shit hardly anywhere.  It's become like a game of Where's Waldo? locating it.)  Of course, they didn't.  We struck up a conversation with the employee helping us.  Turns out he knows a guy who works in an ammo factory and the story is that there's a government ATF dude who shuts down production when he thinks they've made enough rounds.  I said something like 'I believe it, but then again, I'm a conspiracy theorist' and we all laughed. 

I don't know the Wallyworld guy from Adam, so the above could be an urban legend.  Why, yes, in addition to being a conspiracy theorist, I'm also untrusting. I did a Google search a while back to see if I could find actual info about the missing ammo.  I found nothing.  If the above was true, I would think there'd be internet articles about it.  Then again, the goons who suppress ammo might also suppress the news about it.  If I disappear, the goons have suppressed me, too.  ;o)

Found a flaw in Fertile Ground.  "Why can't you people get it through your head skulls?"  This has been fixed.

I get musey when I wake up at 4am.

Anything to add?  Muse away.


  1. I enjoyed a good giggle about head skulls, which I needed after a day at work. It's 4pm and I finish at 5.30pm so I'm getting itchy to go home.

    As for politics, yours or ours, I hate the lot. I'd like to start my own little world where everyone works hard, plays at what they enjoy, treats everyone else with respect and toleration, and no food is fattening. I'd call it Fransworld and my seat of office would be in a town hall that consists of a book shop / café / sewing & knitting shop. I'd spend my official ruler of the world hours in the café drinking coffee and eating those non-fattening cinnamon rolls or muffins or crumpets and dealing with the issues of the day. Then I'd pop into the book store to pick up the latest offering by my fav authors, before popping over to browse the lovely fabrics and yarns. Oh dear lord I'm getting carried away now ....

  2. well...there are head skulls and then there are HEAD skulls. Just sayin'... ;)

    I had Stormageddon yesterday, pink eye, croup, and all. I woke up this morning and realized I hadn't set up a blog for today. Oh well.

    Did I ever tell you about the army days when our favorite restaurant was known to be a hotspot for Cold War Russian contact of military officers? Yeah. We talked in code and spoke into condiment containers, the foliage, and checked under tables and chairs for bugs. Conspiracy? Damn straight there is! *hums the X-Files theme*

  3. The "it's like being impregnanted by Satan' comment made my laugh out loud, thanks for that! And so freaking true, unfortunately :(

    Man, every time we go into WM we check for .22 and the last time we were there they had a bunch. But you're right, a lot of the times there's none or only like a small box. And, around here there's a restriction of two boxes per checkout which is really annoying :

  4. I'm feeling fairly freaked about the election being a lose-lose for everyone, and I'm not really a conspiracy theorist :) It's just that kind of election this time (well, a lot of the times, but definitely this time). No clue about ammo, hadn't heard that. We'll just keep writing and ignore the world! Hope you have a good weekend!

  5. I want to go live in Fransworld. :)

    The .22 ammo shortages are regular and generally panic-driven; we had a big one here back in 2009 when it seemed like everyone was freaking out and stockpiling. Rumors spread, gun show sellers gouge, the shops crank up the prices and keep the surplus in their back rooms, which then makes everyone freak out and buy, lather, rinse, repeat. It's always worth buying ammo at the right price if you see it, but don't fall for the b.s.

  6. I asked hubby his opinion about the .22 shortage and he felt it was consumer-driven more than conspiracy.

    Cheaper Than Dirt (online only) sometimes run sales. If you have an Atwoods, they also run the occasional sale.
