Saturday Random Stuff

Just some random stuff on a slow Saturday evening.

The Most Powerful Handgun in the World
This guy is fun to watch! FPS Russia has an entire library of gun related posts on YouTube and he cracks me up. Here he uses the 500 Smith and Wesson handgun??!:

"My hand hurts like hell".
They keep getting bigger. I am not into guns but thought this was crazy wild.

The Fisherman Story
This tale always made sense in a way that was both funny and sad:
One day a fisherman was lying on a beautiful beach, with his fishing pole propped up in the sand and his solitary line cast out into the sparkling blue surf. He was enjoying the warmth of the afternoon sun and the prospect of catching a fish.

About that time, a businessman came walking down the beach, trying to relieve some of the stress of his workday. He noticed the fisherman sitting on the beach and decided to find out why this fisherman was fishing instead of working harder to make a living for himself and his family. "You aren't going to catch many fish that way," said the businessman to the fisherman. "You should be working rather than lying on the beach!"

The fisherman looked up at the businessman, smiled and replied, "And what will my reward be?" "Well, you can get bigger nets and catch more fish!" was the businessman's answer. "And then what will my reward be?" asked the fisherman, still smiling. The businessman replied, "You will make money and you'll be able to buy a boat, which will then result in larger catches of fish!" "And then what will my reward be?" asked the fisherman again. The businessman was beginning to get a little irritated with the fisherman's questions. "You can buy a bigger boat, and hire some people to work for you!" he said.

"And then what will my reward be?" repeated the fisherman. The businessman was getting angry. "Don't you understand? You can build up a fleet of fishing boats, sail all over the world, and let all your employees catch fish for you!" Once again the fisherman asked, "And then what will my reward be?" The businessman was red with rage and shouted at the fisherman, "Don't you understand that you can become so rich that you will never have to work for your living again! You can spend all the rest of your days sitting on this beach, looking at the sunset. You won't have a care in the world!"

The fisherman, still smiling, looked up and said, "And what do you think I'm doing right now?"


Hugh Fitzcairn
In the TV series "Highlander" many stars made guest appearances. Names like Roland Gift, Vanity, Joan Jett, and Roddy Piper are just a few. On of my favorites was the recurring character Hugh Fitzcairn, played by The Who frontman Roger Daltrey. Sadly this character was killed off in an episode by Duncan Macleod's nemesis, Kalas:

Sorry for the bad quality, but this clip had just this scene. This was the best show on TV.

On another thread I got all nostalgic for the film "Clerks". Here is the awesome Berserker scene:


New Avatar
My new avatar makes an appearance in this cutscene from the second Knights of the Old Republic game at the 1:35 mark of "The Fall of Darth Traya":

Sick as all get out.

Have a good night.

Does he ever wonder he fired 6 shots or only 5?

The Fisherman story reminds me of this song that is featured in Fallout 3:

The Andrew Sisters with Danny Kaye

"They hurry like savages to get aboard an iron train
And though it's smokey and it's crowded, they're too civilized to complain
When they've got two weeks vacation, they hurry to vacation ground (What do they do, Darling?)
They swim and they fish, but that's what I do all year round"

Doable Finance,
yeah those bullets are so huge he can only load 5! Nice site BTW.

That song was strange! That game looks so wild.

Awesome Highlander scene, my friend! I feel like that was placed on here just for me! :) But yes, best show on TV!!!

And Fallout 3 is an awesome game. I didn't want it to end.

CLERKS! Oh the nostalgia...

The fisherman story puts things into perspective, doesn't it?

JH, yeah I always found that tale pretty funny in a circular logic sort of way.
