Knives on a Plane!

From Say Uncle comes an article that the TSA will allow small knives on planes starting April 27th. Their length threshold has me baffle. Who the hell came up with 2.36 inches (6cm) as an acceptable length?

In some regards, this is the knife equivalent of the seven-round limit. We can’t trust you with a standard length knife, but a neutered length blade is okay.

Do I have any knives under 6cm? I wonder. Oh wait, here’s one.

Metal Tuesday – Dream Evil – In Flames You Burn

This week’s Metal Tuesday is brought to you by Dream Evil with their song “In Flames You Burn.”

This song is typical of what I usually put into my “Battle” playlist. Something that just makes you just want to pick up a sword and hack your enemies to death. Very useful for writing action scenes.

Lyrics from mp3lyrics.org

Oh God forbid this bloody war
I see my knights falling one by one
so here I am, in this fight I’m all alone
I’m stuck here in this hellhole on my own

Taste the blood, tears of pain
Memories from the past strike through my mind
My royal blood, begins to boil
Deadly wounds can’t stop me now, I still stand strong
I just can’t die!!!

Surrender is no option for me now
Bless those souls that I send to hell
If you dare just look into my eyes
My steel is warm my face is stained with blood

One by one I hit them to the ground
One by one I see their heads roll
Anyone against me taste my sword
Anyone who’ll challenge me will die!

You, killed my men, raped my land & you ruined our lives
Still I stand in command in flames you burn!!!!
You will die by my hand forever you’re condemned
Cause I am in command in flames you burn

No it’s no use for you to beg,
I will send you down to hell
I can’t die my faith is far too strong
In flames of hell is where you belong

One by one I hit them to the ground
One by one I see their heads roll
Anyone against me taste my sword
Anyone who’ll challenge me will die

You, killed my men, raped my land & you ruined our lives
Still I stand in command in flames you burn!
You will die by my hand forever you’re condemned
Cause I am in command in flames you burn!!!

You, killed my men, raped my land & you ruined our lives
Still I stand in command in flames you burn!
You will die by my hand forever you’re condemned
Cause I am in command in flames you burn

you burn, you burn, you buuuuuuuuuuurn

Monday Funday

A couple of friends sent me this. In light of some proposed expansions to Florida’s Stand Your Ground law, I thought it was apt.

This is why I watch Red Eye

Or at least, the podcast, since, y’know, I don’t have cable tv.

I enjoyed the parent who was upset during all of this that the Christian perspective wasn’t taught in the class. I would kind of thinking living in Texas handles that.

Andy Levy, during the Redeye Halftime segment on 2/27/13, talking about a school that had girls trying on burkhas.

This just made me giggle.

Technology Changing the Face of Homework

Tuesday night I was helping my nephew with his homework. I won’t go into the blatant environmental propaganda, but I did promise him that I’d address the logical fallacies in his assignment when he was older.

What prompted this post? Several spelling errors were pointed out during my review of his assignment. What was his response? He grabbed his iPod and started up a spelling app. My brother and I exchanged looks and then came up with the same answer. It’s no different than if he looked the words up in a dictionary. If anything, it was better because the app assisted in finding the right words.

Sometimes even I have to shove down my inner Luddite.

Sneak Peek From MHI RPG

In case you were unaware, Larry Corriea had a Kickstarter last year to fund a role-play game based on his Monster Hunters universe. As we get closer, they’ve been releasing “teaser” art.

The latest one is very cool to me because the artist is a friend of mine, Ben McSweeny. (Click through to see the pic) Click here if you want to see more of Ben’s stuff. One thing Ben prides himself on is an accurate depiction of weapons.

Robb Speaks The Truth!

The title of the post says it all.

I’ve been trying to get my family that live north of JAX to understand this for years. I usually just get blank stares.
