Man Law : The head nod is an acceptable way to greet another guy when simply walking past. No words are needed to be said. An upward nod is for friends, a downward nod is for fellow men.

Comfortable clothes

Posted by ArmedGeek on Thursday, November 19, 2009 in Personal

At risk of giving a little bit of my personal life away …

Anyone who wears BDUs knows that they’re kind of like blue jeans. They’re stiff and scratchy when they’re new but the older they are the more comfortable they become. Sadly, today I had to retire my favorite pair of BDU trousers.

*moment of silence*

I hate breaking in new pants, but damn, they do look sharp when brand new.

Not bad for an irrelevant hick from Alaska

From The Daily Beast via HotAir:

A HarperCollins insider told The Daily Beast that the book sold a staggering 300,000 copies on the first day alone, which was Tuesday. “Sales are phenomenal, and we are convinced that the book will continue to sell phenomenally for some time to come,” says the insider. They’re not prevaricating: As of 2:30pm today, the book was #1 on Amazon, ahead of both Stephen King’s new novel, Under the Dome, and Dan Brown’s The Lost Symbol. The latter sold 1 million copies on its first day, but that figure included the UK, and top fiction generally trumps non-fiction. Any way you carve it, Going Rogue looks to be a $12 million goldmine.

The truly funny thing about this is that it is the Left that just cannot seem to shut up about her. Don’t get me wrong, I love the hell out of her, but how many VP nominees that lost can you name?

Teh Won Speaks

Quote of the day

“You guys make a pretty good photo op,” [President Obama] said.

While on his “Apology-Looza Tour II”,  Prez Obama made a 52 minute stop at Osan Air Base in South Korea, and though he could not be bothered to make a decision as to the troop surge in Afghanistan, he did take the time to thank South Korea for their efforts in the war in Afghanistan. You know, the unilateral front?

As a parting shot, he got a “huge cheer” from the troops as he told them they would be getting a pay raise. Which is interesting, considering Congress has to vote on a raise before he can sign off on it. As Prez Obama X said, “That’s what you call an applause line.”
