Redneck Credentials Renewed

The last few years, I’ve been doing stuff like computer repair, web site administration, graphic design, and — of course — a bunch of writing.

The other day, I noticed my sister’s barbecue grill was rusting out, so this afternoon I set out to repair it.

  • snare wire
  • hardware cloth salvaged from an old rabbit hutch
  • metal support straps from some old benches

In recent years, while mass shootings have dominated both headlines and cemeteries, calls for gun reform have escalated to deafening levels. As frustration and fears mount, and as organizations like the NRA have kept a stranglehold on maintaining the status quo, an unlikely hero has arrived in the form of Colt—the gun manufacturer responsible for producing the AR-15 assault rifle.

Ordinarily, I’d call them out for referring to the semi-auto AR-15 as an assault rifle, but that’s not the best part. The bold face emphasis above was a clue. Continue reading

Bleg: Gallium

It has come to my attention that I really need some gallium.

I was familiar with its amusing low melting point, and pranks thus enabled. I had no idea before today how it reacts with aluminum. I see possibilities.
