Good Mornin' BCers! Clear and maybe gonna be a bit 'toasty' here today...
252 weekend posts, none deleted (so far)! chuckles
With the exception of only a few mean and troubling comments from a couple trolling wayward visitors, (who now thankfully are supposed members of an elite uppish private blog, laughing) it seemed a pretty fun place.
I do miss the humor and wisdom from V_K, txn, Claire, Fancy and a few others I enjoy reading, but I'm hoping/thinking No News is Good News, and that they're all healthy and happy...peace

Morning all

Let's hit the 'refresh' button today.

Yesterday the sad news of another singer death Robin Gibb, left us with only one Bee Gee.
So many memories, and again songs of my childhood in the '70s.

An elitist club can serve a purpose; it lets the rest of us know how fortunate we are.

Shunned told me - and a couple of others - that she'd rather belong to a 'Trailor-Trash' club; not so 'hoity-toity'. Not having to worry about watching what is said for fear of offending somebody else's sensitivities.

Let yer hair down and boogie; basically.

Why have a limo drive you from the dock to the mansion when it's so much more fun to drive yourself in an ATV through mud and over jumps?

Why slave over a counter and then a grill with a delicately seasoned and marinated Tri-Tip when a thick juicy steak or plump chicken parts with Newman's Own and other seasonings liberally brushed and basted are easier and BETTER? Just cut 'em, gut 'em and toss 'em on the barbie.

Corn cooked in the husk; peel back to pre-season, throw them on and beer-baste (works on the meat as well).

Salad made from whatever fixin's you got in the fridge or in the truck patch out back.

The other sides and desserts are pot-luck. Bring what you think we'd all like - we'll all like it.

Tire swing over the pond for the kiddies (ages 5 to 85).

And music crankin'. Classic Rock for the most part; country only if it fits and smokes.

Speaking of smokes - cigars purloined from XIV's humidor.

And don't worry about hurting anybody's feelings - they'll hurt yours right back; you'll pour beer over each other's heads, wrassle yourselves into the water (while the rest of us are taking bets as to who wins) and you'll come up clean and friendly quick enough.

Nobody's overly sensitive in the Trailer Park.

Everybody's real.

That's OUR type of club. Weekly meetings like this.

Stay tuned to find out what a camp-out is like!

Hint - more ATV's, more fun.

It's where the 'Shunned' go to have fun. Intellectuals leave the 'smarts' at home; here EVERYBODY is a redneck.

Even the Grammer Police puts the citation book away in this club!

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to write a check to Shunned. Use of her name and all that; gotta pay a royalty TO royalty. My red-headed queen.

@AT88, about this time yesterday I shared my opinion w/you:
"...such a round about and poor attempt at sarcastic wit that it'll likely escape the censor. Kidding aside because you obviously don't know, she (your target) is as good of a person as you're likely to find round these parts. I see almost all of your previous posts in the BC, now for obvious reasons, have been deleted. I'm not sure why you continue to spew here but that's your option.Some things don't make any sense to me. Another example'd be those swamp people that wrestle with alligators..."

That said, I now have to add something else to my list of things that 'don't make sense to me'
(why you'd assume the same cruel and sarcastic posture again today)

'bout all I can think of is maybe you're tryin' to catch the eye of the talent scouts and get an invite to that elite private blog we discussed yesterday? laughing

Hey jack wagon... just so you know.. your attempt at humor leaves you looking like a punk beatch.. Just thought I would let you in on that little secret prior to you stepping up on that inflated ego to try and get a look at the world from a real man's point of view... just sayin:)

Have never quite figured out why some people feel the need to take full charge at the what they deem inadequate in someone else.. Seriously.. Take a look in your own wood shed prior to trying to smear someone else, just because you don't understand them.. Not only possible to see the good in them, but you might even find some comfort for your own deviations and short comings..

Actually, the epitome of elitism.

Country Club mentality. I'm likin' the 'Trailer Trash' club idea more and more. We don't bother turning our noses up at others; not when we admit that our leavin's aren't quite April-Fresh either.

'Trailer Trash'. Might be low class - but that's better than NO class.

I used that same excuse (though not in so many words or with the pistol analogy) defending AC and myself for one of our stories against our 'critics'. I believe you were one of them; not quite sure.

Nobody bought that one, either.

Hi, EZ! Yeah, couldn't resist that one; you're great at setting up punch lines <ducks as mysterious assailant attempts to land one - misses, HAH!>
And Shunned - I'm here, where are you?
Anybody check the eclipse yesterday? How many still have their eyesight?
Thinking that if Shunned has no objections; I'll play some of my early Bee Gees albums this evening (early meaning prior but inclusive to 'Nights On Broadway').
Their early album tracks are underrated.
And some of them rather 'countryish'. Not bad for Austrailian raised Brits.
Boppin' in and out, great to see ya!

priceless... The "I didn't mean anything by it/ was only rhetoric" speech.... How sweet... Or is it that you don't have enough cajones to stand by your original position on this board?
Either way, it's a crying shame.. And then follow up with the whole "attention whuure" speech, about striking nerves and not knowing that your stories made such an impact:) You are a real pro..

As far as the claim made by Pearler....... It's not mine to "back up" or judge... If his story bothers you to the extent that you would be bringing it up months after the original comment, then I would imagine you need to find a small hobby.. maybe kicking rocks or model airplanes... Anything to steer your mind clear of the mental anguish that the comment seems to have brought you..

In closing, I stand by my comment... your attempt to belittle someone, who is almost always a kind soul on these threads, comes at a cost greater to you than it's intended target.. You left yourself looking like a punk, and then circled round with the rhetoric/fiction speech to cancel any doubt that you are also a beatch..

happy Monday:)

Pearler, with all due respect...

The discussion is about bullet drop. That drop is dependent on the length of time it takes a bullet to get to its target, since gravity will accelerate downward any falling object at the rate of 32 feet per second squared. In the case of a bullet, atmospheric drag will slow the bullet along its path and therefore increase its drop.

I prepared a spreadsheet depicting bullet drop based on initial (muzzle) velocity of a bullet and the distance to target. For simplicity's sake I ignored atmospheric drag. I can provide that spreadsheet if requested.

The time to target is the distance to target divided by muzzle velocity (I assume velocity remains constant throughout). For example: For a distance to target of 440 yards (1320 feet) and a muzzle velocity of 1000 feet per second the time to target is 1.320 seconds exclusive of atmospheric drag.

The bullet drop is equal to 1/2 times the downward acceleration due to gravity times the time to target squared (Newtonian physics). So, with this example, the bullet drop would be 1/2 times 32 times 1.32 squared. That works out to 27.88 feet.

The pistol ballistics you posted indicate that very significant bullet drop would have to be accommodated at a range of 440 yards. Impossible? No. Extremely difficult? Yes.

Apparently "little man syndrome" also affects reading comprehension.. Pearler didn't "cite" me as a witness of this feat.. To cite me as witness, the feat he speaks of would have already have to taken place in my presence.. He said that I had an area big enough, on my ranch, to make the shot.. he also stated that I had enough integrity to substantiate the event, given that I would participate.. (something you wouldn't necessarily understand) I happen to have bigger irons in the fire and really don't give rip about whether or not you believe Pearler's story or not..

Now that we cleared that up... My actual claim was that you are a beatch... You have proven it nicely many times:)

Thanks for playing...

Btw.. I have very little doubt about your friendship status, in this world.. That said, I don't owe anyone an answer, in regards to claims they make on the back page of an online newspaper.. See? I thought you would..

Have a nice evening..
