"Somebody Else Will Call"

“Bike Thief” is a social experiment in which filmmaker Casey Neistat repeatedly stole his own bike in locations around New York City, including in front of a police station. He gets away with it in (almost) every instance.

This really highlights both an immense lack of situational awareness in most people and the reason why I have good bike locks.


Feels more like summer.  The highs this last week have been pushing the 80s, and the "rain" they keep speaking of keeps getting pushed further and further back (50% today as of last night, currently bright and sunny and only partially cloudy.)

This does not help with the bloggage.

Yesterday afternoon/evening I rolled up to the gun shop to pick up a free hat for being awesome, and fondle my probably BAG Day purchase.  Speaking of, BAG Day is a Sunday, and the shop's closed, but I'm looking at a handgun, so I'll most likely pay and do the paperwork on Saturday and pick it up Monday after the stupid waiting period.  I figure that should be close enough for .gov work.

While I was there, I also got to handle an NFA Kriss carbine and a Serbu breacher.  The Serbu seems like it would be fun for about 5 minutes, then unless you're actually using it as a breacher, you'd be wondering why you went AOW and not SBS (I'm still very much wanting an 870 with a 12" barrel... ends right at the factory mag tube, how awesome is that?)  The Kriss on the other hand... well, I'm glad I didn't look at the price tag, or I'd be doing math to figure out when I could start paperwork.

On a more positive note, they're also carrying converted Saiga 12s and stock drums for the same.  That could end up costing me a bit (although I'd be constantly tempted to mount a launcher of some sort to the bottom...)

Start three nights of overnights tonight, so maybe there'll be some stuff up here with more content in the morning.
