  1. Which version ? I grew up in the 70s and the 25 minute version had a cliffhanger at the end of each story. 20 episodes a year on a Saturday night. Wonderful.

    I can understand why people might not be into the new version.


    Well, I tried watching a couple of episodes with my Whovian college roommate around 1992, but I couldn't tell you when they were filmed.  I tried watching a handful of episodes of the new one over the past couple of years.  I honestly couldn't tell you much about any of the episodes--they just didn't hold my attention.

    • How did you come up with your 'handle' (forum name)?  It's just the first syllable of my last name.  It's been used as a nickname for years.

    • What was the first tabletop RPG you played?  Champions, when I was in college.

    What was the first tabletop RPG you GMed?  I ran a few sessions of Champions many years ago.

    What are you currently playing/GMing?  Nothing, unfortunately.

  2. Summing up:

     1) Legally
     2) Legally
     3) Legally
     4) Missed by background check
     5) Stolen from father--who SHOULD have been denied on the current background check.  Shooter too young to buy.
     6) Legally, apparently, although the article is nicely vague on that point.
     7) Missed by background check.
     8) Stolen from mother.
     9) Legally
    10) Legally
    11) Legally
    12) Legally
    13) Legally
    14) Legally
  3. I hadn't either.  Fortunately, it's defined at that link Cygnia posted:
    "For those who aren’t aware of the concept of a “Gronk novel”, it is an erotic novel about or involving Rob “Gronk” Gronkowski, who plays tight-end for the New England Patriots football team."


    I didn't bother to read any more of the link.

  4. Why should there be any loss of rank or pay cuts if the entire CAS mission is transferred to a different service?  I'd expect that the pilots and maintenance crews would be allowed to convert to the Army equivalent of the same rank--but I have no military background myself to know how (or if) that would work.

  5. From what I remember, punt guns were generally used for market hunting.  I think they were usually 1-, 2-, or 4- gauge shotguns and were braced against the ground or a support structure in a boat and fired into flocks of waterfowl.  Flock flies off, dead birds are picked up, and the market hunter either reset in the same location or moved on to another spot to repeat the process.


    Essentially, a small cannon loaded with birdshot.  Nothing sporting about the practice--it was strictly business.
