Wouldn’t it be great…

…if the shitshow that is 2020 actually ended today and life started getting back to normal?

But now we’ve got a whole new stack of would-be masters who wouldn’t profit from that. So I’m expecting to wake up in the morning to more like something like this…

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    I’m just waiting to see what January 6 gives us.

    While it’s hitting hard now, COVID-19 projections indicate that it should be well beaten back by mid to late summer in the rest of the world. As for you guys in the (not so) United States, good luck.

    Between the COVID-19 deniers and the anti-vaxxers, there’s going to be a lot more death to come. When this eventually ends, I wouldn’t be surprised if the numbers showed more American COVID-19 deaths than all the American losses in all the wars since the start of the 20th century.

    On the plus side, it looks like the checks and balances built into the US Constitution are working, and tRump, the wanna-be dictator, will be nothing more than a footnote in history after January 20th. As for fearing Biden, I’m sure he will be kept in check by the House and Senate.

    It’s good that you are a semi hermit, Joel. The odds are in your favour for living through all this crap.

    Mike,
    Are you on drugs?

    The Commies run the House and are two seats away from the Senate. I’m not sure what country you are from (my guess is Canada) but my suggestion is to keep your opinions there.

    Eric.

    Let’s keep it friendly, Eric.

  5. Eric says:

    Sorry Joel. I thought I was by using no profanity or name calling.

    Eric. 🙂

  6. On a side topic, any updates on the Torso Boy headstone fiasco? They make up a new one gratis?

  7. Joel says:

    They have agreed to replace it but I don’t have any promises as to when. Doesn’t really matter that much before Spring: the weather is staying consistently too cold to break out the adhesive and paint.

  8. Paul B says:

    No, Eric. If the election is not declared null and void on the 6th the USA as we know it is dead. And as to the house, it really does not matter how many Republican’s or Dems are there. They all want to go to the same end point. Just the Dem’s want to get there now, dragging the deplorables along.

    Make no mistake the only elected person we have on our side is Trump. No one else wants to give up the piggy bank we let them use.

  9. Joel says:

    Guys, I’m declaring this thread a politics-free zone.

    Sheesh. Sometimes I miss the fifties – and then I remember Joe McCarthy and recall that none of this bullshit is really new…

    Anyway, no political arguments on TUAK. Go post on … well, anywhere else if you want to argue.

    Ok, no politics. How about a weapons question?
    What the heck is this?

    I have no idea whatsoever.

  12. Jean says:

    I believe that is, or is very similar to a .50 cal Phucifino.

    Been looking at anti-tank and anti-material rifles. Not seeing anything quite like that. But looking at the wood grip forward of the buttstock and pistol grip… could that be DShK converted to an anti-material rifle?

  14. Malatrope says:

    Bear, I think you’ve hit on it. This seems to be the exact gun:

    Thanks!

  15. Bear says:

    The one in the still photo seems to have a box magazine, which is why I think it was converted. But that might just be catcher. But it’s smaller than the box in the video.

To the stake with the heretic!
