  1. Isn't the French gas mask called a pissy duck for how it looks and because you had to see on it to activate it?

  2. I waiting for independence, self-reliance, avoidance of melodrama, realism, and calm to come back in style.

    No luck so far.

    -Kle.

  3. Yes it does, but it didn't work well for them because fleas bit them. It really didn't work that well for the French either.

  4. I drove to Preskit (Prescott), Arizona this morning and visited the Costco. The shelves were fully stocked, I picked up toilet paper and paper towels and a bunch of other supplies to the tune of just about $400. Everyone was polite, everyone was respectful, but then again, it's Prescott and everyone carries a concealed or open carries a handgun. An armed society is a polite society.

    I drove-through Chick-Fil-Et on the way home for lunch. The dining room was closed.

    Gasoline was cheaper than usual at the pump.

    All and all, just another brick in the wall.
