reloading 300 Blackout

I had to knock a couple years’ worth of dust off my reloading gear and a lot of cobwebs out of my reloading brain, but I reloaded a test batch of 300 AAC Blackout ammo up today. This is a new cartridge for me. It is somewhat young to the shooting world, but hugely popular already. Wildcatters cut down a .223 case, opened it up to .30 caliber and stuffed various weights of bullets into it. As often happens, gun and ammo factories saw a good thing and adopted it for commercial production. It is definitely a strange thing with big, fat, long bullets filling the top half of shortened little 5.56 cases while the bottom half is full […]

Is Long Hair Making Us More Intuitive?

 Back in the old days and the ancient times, many cultures embraced people with long hair, because they believed that long hair was a sign of strength and spiritual maturity. The Native Americans and the Chinese are just a few examples of the many cultures that value long hair, which was why the men and women of these cultures back then rarely cut their hair. Even though back then many cultures believed that having long hair was beneficial to the body, is there evidence today that supports the belief that long hair can make a person more intuitive? How long hair can make you more intuitive If you study Nature deeply enough, you should know that Nature would never create […]

people do not have genders

I often enjoy The Woodpile Report. I’m sharing this one snippet from the current version. There is much more good writing there. Check it out. Meanwhile, this tidbit:   It’s time for us to have a talk. The one about the birds and the bees. I’m going to tell you the facts so you don’t get confused or misled by people who are not your friends. Okay, here goes. It’s this way. People are biologically male or female. Male or female are people’s sex, not their gender. People don’t have genders. Words have genders. Word genders are masculine or feminine nouns and pronouns. “She” and “he” are genders. “His” and “her” are genders. That’s because language is a “social construct”. […]

impending death of our school system

There is a great essay at Everything Voluntary .com about the pending demise of the government-controlled, government-mandated training system covering our children like a suffocating, wet blanket in that space from potty-trained to full time worker bees. Peter Gray shares my view that this monster is staggering and is bound to fall. He articulates four big reasons quite well. I shared bits of them here, but left out A LOT. Click on the title below to get the full article. And, oh yes, check out the Everything Voluntary .com website. There is much there to appreciate.

At what age does your knowledge of the world stop growing?

This very imprecise chart represents a lifespan on the X-axis and knowledge of the world, culture, on the Y-axis. Place yourself, where you are today on the X-axis. Do you know less today than you did last week? Or are you still increasing your knowledge? Do you expect to forget more than you learn anytime soon? How do you feel you compare to yourself ten years ago? Where do you expect to be ten years in the future? … STOP Take a few minutes to mark your spot Where are you today? … There are significant reasons those who would rule the world broke up the nuclear family and segregated children and adults by age. Primary among them is […]

my absence

You likely noticed that I have not posted here for a week. There are two primary reasons for that. For one, I updated the operating system in the computer I use for writing and maintaining my websites. This isn’t my first rodeo, so of course I have good notes on every login I use in the world wide web. Except, oops, my notes for the maintenance logins were incorrect. I had to get around to resolving the login problem. Thus it was neither convenient nor easy to post fresh content here. The bigger reason is probably best called “emotional overload”. The Bilderbergs, as I’ve been calling the ruling elite, or The Deep State as many others of similar awareness […]

this means war

Washington Has Crossed Russia’s Red Line By Paul Craig Roberts PaulCraigRoberts.org   Washington’s military attack on Syria is unambiguously a war crime. It occurred without any UN authorization or even the fake cover of a “coalition of the willing.” Washington’s attack on Syria occurred in advance of an investigation of the alleged event that Washington is trying to use as its justification. Indeed, Washington’s story of Syrian use of chemical weapons is totally implausible. All chemical weapons were removed from Syria by Russia and turned over to the US and its European allies. Syria has no such weapons and has no reason to use them and every reason not to. Moreover, it is none of Washington’s business whatsoever what weapons […]
