Vegas Worlds and 2024
The fields at Shadow Rock are awesome.
Vote:
1. No taxes of any kind for 1 year.
2. Free gas for one year.
3. Free ammo for one year.
4. Free groceries for one year.
5. No GEICO commercials for one year.
Scientific literacy is the single most important survival skill we possess.
Three out of the four finest marksmen I know personally are women. Thereís something there.
Rock is dead. I canít tell you when it died, but Iíve been poking it with a stick for a while now and it hasn't moved.
I need to know what happened to Jimmy Hoffa.
I used to carry on about hating disco while secretly loving it.
I donít want to be mean and hurt anyoneís feelings, but Metallica is terrible. A garage band with exceptional PR. And I wouldnít clean my toilet with their OEM whiskey.
Joan Jett sucks tooÖdamn itís good to get all this out.
Any and all performers named ď LilĒ anything, sucks.
Remember when all the teenagers were gonna die from vaping? Whatever happened to that?
I was a slow convert, but Iím close to having all ceramic blade knives.
I havenít seen a truly stray dog in two years at least.
Look for and read Ď The Three Body Problemí by Cixin Liu. The first of an outstanding trilogy.
I keep mowing my neighbors front lawn because he says his dad has his lawnmower. Iím pretty sure he doesnít have a lawnmower. Or a dad. Whatever. He thinks heís getting over but heís twice my weight and half my age.
I keep wondering why guys show up at the range in camouflage. But I keep it to myself.
Prediction. In five years there will only be two pharmacies left, CVS and Rite-Aid. Amazon will buy one, and WalMart, the other.
I still donít know what bath salts were. Or are. Angel Dust for millennials I guess.
They just sentenced the guy who went after the Queen with a crossbow. Something delightfully medieval I kinda wish heíd gotten away with just for the devastating irony. Better if it was a long bow though. Monarchy, even when strictly symbolic is gross. But an American can be forgiven for that stance.
Unpopular takeÖI didnít find ĎBreaking Badí compelling or Walter White the least bit intimidating. Though there was a 16 year old girl in ĎGame of Thronesí that terrified me.
Iíve never eaten alligator.
Except for 12ga and .22 I havenít bought retail ammunition in 10 years now. Roll your own.
I donít like watches, never have. Only jewelry I ever wore were dog tags and a wedding band. Both institutions long in my rear view mirror.
What if we find out it was cow farts that caused all cancer?
Iím not going to suddenly decide I care about womenís soccer just so I can spew my stunted politics. This time.
Itís supposed to be cathartic to split firewood. Itís okay, but digging a deep hole is always more satisfying. Plus you never know when you might need a deep, easy to fill in hole.
I donít care how gnarled and painful my hands eventually get, I refuse to wear Velcro shoes as a matter of principle.
Okay so when does the testosterone go away exactly? Iím waiting. and not patiently. Iím gonna lean into it hard though.
I at the same time envy, and feel sorry for deeply religious people. I may not be a good person,
Robert Mitchum was vastly underrated. See ĎNight of the Hunterí.
Iím not washing or rinsing out my garbage. If itís reasonably clean, into the recycling bin, if not I just toss it. A manís just gotta take a stance now and then.
I have never miscounted , exaggerated or lied on my taxes. Iíve paid all I owe and probably more. Just for the record. Bastards .
Tazo Green Tea. Green tips or Zen.Maybe some honey and lemon. Not those squeeze bottles, a real lemon.
Grizzly bears kill and eat several people a year in North America. Guess how many people get eaten by tigers in India every year? I donít actually know, but itís a lot. I mean more than youíd think would be reasonable in 2023. Thatís kinda cool.
We all made fun of somebodyís border wall a few years back. No one laughing now.
Trying to learn Mandarin is effing hard. I canít do it it. Seriously , itís not if I worked a little harder Id get it, I canít do it. My mouth canít make those sounds. Luckily Iíll be long dead before it becomes an issue/requirement.
Coming up with a nutritional satisfying meal every single night is becoming a chore.
On weekends thereís always a line at the local pot store. Literally the only place I ever see a line.
Guy disappeared while swimming on the Pacific coast after other folks saw a large shark. Article said he was an expert water sportsman with years of experience. Really? Expert? Swimming dressed in a seal suit at Point Reyes in September? Sure Öexpert.
You can spend a fortune on very fine Swiss or German rifle scopes. And if you have the money, great. Itís fine glass. But I buy Nikon. Unfortunately they stopped making rifle scopes a few years ago but thereís a strong secondary market. I buy them up and so should you. ProStaff or Monarch. Make a tight littlex48 spotting scope Iím getting real fond of too. Doesnít come with a stand or a hard case though.
I would never bash a guys skull in with a Stihl Heavy Duty spade shovel. But if was to do such a thing, I know who Iíd do it to. Itís my Brooklyn birth I suspect. Forgive me Lord.
Wake me up when kale doesnít taste like feet.
The very first time I used a microwave, my palms got sweaty.
A very well made, finely built rifle is as close to art as any Monet, Manet, or Rembrandt.
I donít get thong underwear. Neither the allure, nor the comfort. Or lack there of. Iíve even tried wearing them backwards.
I want to go check if Abe Vigoda is actually dead. But Iím scared he might not be. That would freak me out.
I wonder who holds the record for having the most diseases. Or held the record I suppose.
If thereís one bad cop for every twenty good ones, thatís still a bad ratio.
If you join the Navy and canít swim, they wonít teach you. Suck it up buttercup.
If you join the Rangers and canít run, they will teach you. And they want you to do a bunch of hard stuff while youíre running.
The first stick shift I ever drove was a deuce and a half. If you know what that is, God bless. If youíve ever done endless donuts in mud with one, truly, God has smiled upon you.
I went into my bank after work and recognized no one. Kinda weird.
I mean what if the world was really flat. You could go right to the edge. Be kinda cool. I wish I believed dumb stuff sometimes.
Iím one open head wound away from watching my first Fast and Furious movie. Fingers crossed.
The conveyer belts at my local Raleyís were so dirty and gross I finally had to say something . I said it in German, so it might not have had any effect.
Speaking of Raleys I found a good cheap French red. Beaujolais-Villages Louis Jadot 2021. Pretty sure it was less than $20. Bet Safeway has it.
Dave, when does the 2024 schedule come out?

I'm not involved in the development of the annual tournament calendar (and never have been) ... I just author the game schedules a tournament at a time! ...
