    Nigel Keys at the University of Minnesota was a one man wrecking crew of misinformation on dietary issues back then. Unfortunately all the so called health experts listened to him. Read “Good Calorie Bad Calorie” by a former writer for Scientific American. It makes for interesting reading.
  2. This is a 120 mm gun on a Turkish M60T Sabra. Would like to know the story behind it.

    A whole lot of truth there that modern society conveniently forgot.one of my favorite parts of a steak is the fatty end.
  4. Did it today. Had a Doc visit scheduled anyway so he could kick the tires now that I turned 74. Looks like I have some time left. Got a lot of ammo I need to shoot up.

    Fat got a bad rap it doesn't deserve. It is the carbohydrate/Insulin interaction that causes the body to lose the ability to clear fat from its cells and tissues.
  6. That sucks Hemi. Think I will get that shingles vaccine I keep forgetting. My wife will be getting a total knee next spring. I am starting to have some knee pain but the Doc thinks its a bone spur. Get well soon.

    Nice job Sketch, mine was about #20 but traditional oven. Turned out good. This is the bacon I put on the smoker this morning after curing and drying for 9 days. Turkey bacon and tomato sandwiches for dinner!

    I hand cut with a long, extremely sharp Japanese knife designed for sushi and shashimi.

    The Schlitt truly hit the fan.
  12. Absolutely no doubt needs to be on this list. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/opinion/snipex-alligator-the-ukrainian-sniper-rifle-capable-of-penetrating-armored-vehicles/ar-AA14tBCy?cvid=c075be94c09745f0a06f814c7e9ea7fe

    Making some home Cured bacon. Been curing for 7 days, rinsed and dry now for two days then smoke. Will post the funal product.
  14. Gotta keep you guessing. But if you want more vegetation photos, here is one of a Venus Fly Trap. Who’s fly is up for debate.
  15. Grammar school for the rest of us.
  16. Our sportsmen clubs have been pushing for tougjer penalties since some licensed guide abusers got slaps on the wrist about ten years ago. The new judges are getting tougher. Sorry about your friend getting in the middle.

  18. Down here too often poachers get a slap on the wrist.
  19. We have a few of that type around here as well. Canadian authorities aren’t as lenient with tame infractions as the courts in my area thank goodness.
  20. If I remember correctly, Troops under Patton and Eisenhower, under MacArthur’s overall command, actually dispersed the protesters.
  21. US Army Staff Sergeant Leroy A. Petry recipient, the Medal of Honor, for his actions in Afghanistan in 2008 during Operation Enduring Freedom. Born in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Petry joined the Army after high school. Completing the Ranger Indoctrination Program, he was deployed several times to both Iraq and Afghanistan as a member of the 2nd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment. On May 26, 2008, during his seventh deployment, Petry was a member of a team on a mission to capture a Taliban target in Paktia Province. Despite being wounded in both legs by gunfire, Petry continued to fight and give orders. When a grenade landed between him and two other soldiers, Petry grabbed it and attempted to throw it away from them. He saved the soldiers' lives but the grenade exploded, severing his right hand. CITATION: The President of the United States of America takes pleasure in presenting the Medal of Honor to Staff Sergeant Leroy A. Petry, US Army. Staff Sergeant Leroy A. Petry distinguished himself by acts of gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty in action with an armed enemy in the vicinity of Paktya Province, Afghanistan, on 26 May 2008. As a Weapons Squad Leader with D Company, 2nd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, Staff Sergeant Petry moved to clear the courtyard of a house that potentially contained high-value combatants. While crossing the courtyard, Staff Sergeant Petry and another Ranger were engaged and wounded by automatic weapons fire from enemy fighters. Still under enemy fire, and wounded in both legs, Staff Sergeant Petry led the other Ranger to cover. He then reported the situation and engaged the enemy with a hand grenade, providing suppression as another Ranger moved to his position. The enemy quickly responded by maneuvering closer and throwing grenades. The first grenade explosion knocked his two fellow Rangers to the ground and wounded both with shrapnel. A second grenade then landed only a few feet away from them. Instantly realizing the danger, Staff Sergeant Petry, unhesitatingly and with complete disregard for his safety, deliberately and selflessly moved forward, picked up the grenade, and in an effort to clear the immediate threat, threw the grenade away from his fellow Rangers. As he was releasing the grenade it detonated, amputating his right hand at the wrist and further injuring him with multiple shrapnel wounds. Although picking up and throwing the live grenade grievously wounded Staff Sergeant Petry, his gallant act undeniably saved his fellow Rangers from being severely wounded or killed. Despite the severity of his wounds, Staff Sergeant Petry continued to maintain the presence of mind to place a tourniquet on his right wrist before communicating the situation by radio in order to coordinate support for himself and his fellow wounded Rangers. Staff Sergeant Petry's extraordinary heroism and devotion to duty are in keeping with the highest traditions of military service, and reflect great credit upon himself, 75th Ranger Regiment, and the United States Army.
  22. I don’t don’t know. I guess if something works well, Nature imitates it again and again.
