What I want for christmas....

SwissMiniGun is proud to present the smallest revolver and ammunition in the world.
It's total length does not exceed 5.5 cm.

It shoots 2.34 m/m rim-fire ammunition.

This firearm is a scaled-down model of the much acclaimed and mystical Colt Python with all the same features as are found on the real size gun.

The manufacture of this exceptional miniature revolver has only been possible by exploiting the incomparable expertise and latest technologies of the Swiss Watch and Jewellery Industry, upon which its Worldwide reputation is built.

You never know when you might need a firearm and one that can hang off of a keychain sounds pretty spiffy to me. I wonder if you could kill a person with one of these? It's definitely capable of penetrating skin but it takes quite a bit more to actually inhume an individual.

Bullet energy: 1.0888 J. 0.8030 ft-lbf

Studies recommend that an arrow deliver 25 to 39 foot-pounds of energy to kill animals with thin hides and light bones. If you're after large game with thick hides, your bow should deliver 40 to 80 foot-pounds of energy. If you seek boxcar-sized African animals, you'd better eat your Wheaties. Theoretically, you need 80 to 129 foot-pounds of energy.

Hmmm...I dunno if it's really equivalent since it's discussing arrows but I guess you can't kill wild game with these things. Still, you pop someone in the eye and it dosen't really matter how much kinetic energy the bullet is packing.

More to read

Welp, my order from Barnes and Noble just arrived in the mail yesterday. It looks like I'm going to have plenty to read for the next couple of weeks. My two bookshelves are already overloaded and I'm not sure where I'm going to find room to add new books after a while. Anyway, here's what I picked up:

1 The Runes of the Earth
1 Mistress of Dragons (Dragonvarld #1)
1 To Light A Candle (Obsidian Trilogy #2)
1 Phule's Errand
1 Forgotten Realms: Elminster's Daughter
1 White Wolf
1 Winter Warriors
1 Water Sleeps
1 The Silver Spike
1 Thud!
1 The Swords of Night and Day
1 Hero in the Shadows
1 The First Chronicles of Druss the Legend

I already started in on Thud!, the new Terry Pratchett Watch Novel, and I'm around a hundred pages or so in. It dosen't seem to be as good as Nightwatch so far, but then that set a very high standard. Nightwatch is probaly my favorite pratchett Watch book at the moment and second only to The Last Hero to take the overall title.

I'm also looking forward to being able to finish Glen Cook's Black Company books. I've had the last book in the series, Soldiers Live, for quite a while now but was missing Water Sleeps. Reading out of order really ticks me off so I've been holding out. It's nice to have loose ends wrapped up.

Finally, I was surprised and happy to find that the copy of The Runes of the Earth that I was sent was actually a signed copy! Considering that I bought it off the discount rack at BN.com, it dosen't exactly bode well for sales. I'm hoping to get a chance to reread the entire Thomas Covenant Chronicles from the very beginning before tackling Runes. It's been a long time since I've revisited the world and I could use a refresher. The best part about going back to old books you love is that it's like coming home again to a small degree. It's one way you have to go back in time and unlike the fog of memories, you find that everything is just as it was.

Satanic Cat Watch: Day 1268

You Are: 30% Dog, 70% Cat

You and cats have a lot in common.
You're both smart and in charge - with a good amount of attitude.
However, you do have a very playful side that occasionally comes out!


LIES! Bloody lies and proproganda, that's what this is. It's all part of the conspiracy! This is exactly like how people will do things like plant drugs on anti-drug crusaders to tarnish their image and make them look like hypocrites. If any part of me were really cat-like, I'd certainly chop it off, put it in a burlap sack with a twistie-tie and toss it in a river. Better dead than cat, that's always been my motto.

Well, sure. He sorta has to say that dosen't he?

"Cleveland has heart. We are a city with a long and rich history. We are a city of hope and opportunity where people expect quality life. We have a world-class orchestra, world-class medical facilities, and we are recognized as one of the most livable cities and one of the best places to visit. We are a city of one people, one community, living and working together, with respect, justice and equality. We are a great city. We are Cleveland."

So I'm setting off for Ohio sometime tomorrow. I haven't bothered to worry about trivial things like packing or otherwise preparing for the trip but that's half the fun of it. You arrive and then you get to dig through your hastily put together luggage to find what you've forgotten to bring along this time around.

I don't imagine I'll actually see much of the city itself, though that's probaly no real loss. I've never been one of those sightseeing sort of people anyway. It would be sorta interesting to see the 'free' stamp. I haven't seen anything that ridiculous looking in quite a while. I wonder how many millions went into that art project?
