    You're studying for a quiz in your culinary arts class, and you read "Single Acting" and "Double Acting" baking powder as "Single Action" and "Double Action". :eek:




    (please, no "what caliber for baked goods" jokes!)

    I was once waiting in the Canal Street Station for the Coney Island bound N train when I was working night shift at a large warehouse a few years ago.

    The time was 2:21 AM, and the N train is probably the one NYC subway train with the LONGEST wait period between trains. Rush hour:, train runs 10 minutes apart. Off peak hours: 20 minutes. AFTER MIDNIGHT : 40 MINUTES.

    The train pulled into the station at 2:22 AM and I think I did something that I had no control over. When the digital clock turned, well you guessed it. It was after the doors closed and the train was already pulling away that I realized I just spent a half minute staring at the 2:23 and thinking about whether should I or not get a rifle chambered in that:D

    The next train came at 3:00 AM.

    You remember series of numbers easily because they remind you of calibers or firearm model numbers you're familiar with:

    Addresses: 4570 3rd St South

    Social security numbers: XXX-38-X458

    Phone numbers: 338-XX06

    Area codes: 870 (southern and eastern Arkansas)

    the only reason you clean your house is to make room for more gun stuff.

    You pile up garbage in your house while telling yourself, "that would make a good target."

    What would that even look like?


    I remember looking at pictures of an Iraqi ammo dump, chock full of 54r and x39 and thinking...if I could just get a few hundred pounds of that I'd be set for life. Oh well. Some countries have all the luck...

    What if the wife or girlfriend yells at you from the kitchen, "Hey, what in the world did you eat that left all this oil floating on top of the dishwater?...it can't be good for you.", and you say, "Oh, that's Rem-Oil".

    Actually, some of it turned out to be mineral spirits, judging from a few plastic utensils sticking out of the water that melted. :p

    Yeah, It didn't seem like that many when I counted...But in my defense on the last one, the owner called me and asked me to bring in a rifle that I owned and he had worked on because another one of his frequent customers really wanted to see it.

    when everyone suspects that you're the most likely candidate to shoot up your workplace, because they overhear you talking about your 'collection'.
