          I found a little led flashlight in the swamp today. I was surprised to find that it still works. I looked up the brand and model. If one was selling it as a toy it would cost about ten bucks. If one marketed it to bicyclists it would be in the $50-70 range. The current going rate is $270. Gun nuts are nuts. Surefire Xc1.
          Tha't's a lucky find...near-$300 light,and you just randomly found it? Nice.

          I guess I need to buy a gun now. Should I get one that goes "pow, pow" or are the ones that go "pew, pew" better?
          I don't suspect this is a serious question, but I feel like posting something I've been looking at recently:

          6.5mm Grendel Pistol (11-13")
          Example:


          Some of these 6.5 pistols can stay supersonic near 1000 yards, with double the energy of a 5.56.
          If you're a decent shot and properly calibrate your sight, hitting targets at 500-800 yards is reasonable.
          Still small enough to use as PDW, enough power to toss in a backpack and hunt deer/elk or whatever.

          I just discovered that Der Wienerschnitzel opened a location 6.1 miles from my house. I am pretty stoked. I know a lot of people bag on this place. I used to love it and then I moved to WA and the nearest location was like 50 miles away. Last time I was driving back from CA I tried to stop and eat there before I left town and the damn location was remodeling.

          I actually remember the last time I ate there like 28 years ago. I was going to lunch with my coworkers and I think were were going to get pizza. I saw weinerschntzel across the street and bailed on them to get some chili dogs..

          I don't think my newly found light will fit that.

          Maybe not that specific unit, but it's an AR15 platform.
          Should be easy to customize one to fit your needs.
          'Corse duct tape will still hold it on there...

          The 6.5 Grendel round though, seems superior in every way to the 5.56.
          Can essentially equal or better the power of an 18" rifle in an 11-13" pistol.

          1st of the year, the State made us join NMLS for license renewals. OMGWTFBBQ, that is one effed up site. I timed it, took me 14 hrs to complete. Their help desk couldn't even tell me how to upload a doc. "Well, our site is kind of confusing."

          Anyway, so now my renewals have to be done by year end. I've been putting it off because of the reason above. Shiiii, logged in, clicked renewal, verified profile, pair $700....less than 5 minutes. :D :D

          $700? Note to self: don't bitch about the $80/year professional registration fee.

          I was able to correct a mistake of a Walmart online buy and get it returned instantly at the local Walmart. They scanned the barcode on my phone of the email or the original order and put the credit back on the card immediate. We literally waled up to the returns, no one ahead of us and five minutes started walking out with a line of more than ten people behind us. Win-win.

          Have a bunch of backlogged personal and vacation time I needed to use or lose.

          So, after today, I won't have to be back at work until Jan.4th.

          Pretty much a staycation..but the time away from work will be nice.

          Total of 10 days after today, before I have to be back at work.
          (all paid time).

          Friend flips vehicles/tractors/etc. Somehow the deals just fall into his lap. 2009 F350, not a scratch on it ( don't remember the miles) $11K (revenge sale :D) . He was a little short so I gave him the $ on Friday, he posted pics on Sunday, sold Monday morning for $15K. I got 10% of the profit. Would have taken 22 years to make that with it sitting in the money market.

          Good for you! But no one keeps money in the money market to make money. lol. I've over million sitting in money market generating $0 in interest. I'm just happy they're not charging me money to hold money. At the rate we're going, it wouldn't surprise me to see negative interest rate and we pay banks money to hold our money.

          True that but I have to have it on hand per the state and if I have a run on lending. Not a problem this year though. Our industry has been flat since the rona.

          No, I don't have $1M either.

          I'm only holding it in money market because I have to send estimate tax payment to the IRS by Jan 15th so I don't get killed with late penalties. Never wrote 7 figure check to the IRS before. Damn crooks.

          Given that interest rates are below the inflation rate, we already have negative interest rates.

          How short was he? I would never lend money to anyone under 5' 5".

          Short people! You just can't trust 'em, sez I.
