After Midnight OOT

Since it’s after midnight and it looks like nobody scheduled an OOT for tonight, here’s a taste of what I’m listening to to close out my birthday tonight: Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood tearing it up at Madison Square Garden in 2008.

    Thanks.

    I was trying to forget, but apparently Facebook tells people when it is.

    My guess is that the electronic speed controller went bad. They can do that without blowing the fuse.

    The Lucas Electric motto: “Get home before dark.”

    Lucas denies having invented darkness. But they still claim “sudden, unexpected darkness.”

    Lucas--inventor of the first intermittent wiper.

    Lucas--inventor of the self-dimming headlamp.

    The three-position Lucas switch--DIM, FLICKER and OFF. The other three switch settings--SMOKE, SMOLDER and IGNITE.

    The original anti-theft devices--Lucas Electric products.

    “I’ve had a Lucas pacemaker for years and have never experienced any prob…

    If Lucas made guns, wars would not start either.

    Did you hear about the Lucas powered torpedo? It sank.

    It’s not true that Lucas, in 1947, tried to get Parliament to repeal Ohm’s Law. They withdrew their efforts when they met too much resistance.

    Did you hear the one about the guy that peeked into a Land Rover and asked the owner “How can you tell one switch from another at night, since they all look the same?” “He replied, it doesn’t matter which one you use, nothing happens!”

    Back in the ’70s Lucas decided to diversify its product line and began manufacturing vacuum cleaners. It was the only product they offered which didn’t suck.

    Quality Assurance phoned and advised the Engineering guy that they had trouble with his design shorting out. So he made the wires longer.

    Why do the English drink warm beer? Lucas makes the refrigerators.

    Alexander Graham Bell invented the Telephone.
    Thomas Edison invented the Light Bulb.
    Joseph Lucas invented the Short Circuit.

    Recommended procedure before taking on a repair of Lucas equipment: check the position of the stars, kill a chicken and walk three times sunwise around your car chanting: “Oh mighty Prince of Darkness protect your unworthy servant.”

    Lucas systems actually uses AC current; it just has a random frequency.

    What that generation of Brit auto people did get right was building a series of neat lttle “tossable” cars, something Americans never succeeded at. The idea eventually worked its way into all makers’ fleets.

    LOL, oh, irony! Of course, nothing will happen.

    Washington D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier has confirmed that the department is looking into allegations that NBC’s David Gregory violated D.C.’s gun banning laws during a recent taping of Meet the Press.

    n a discussion about gun control, host David Gregory brandished a 30-round magazine purportedly for an AR-15 or similar “assault rifle.” The discussion took place on December 23, during the broadcast of NBC’s Sunday morning political talk show.

    Washington D.C.’s gun laws, however, state that even possessing such a device is a violation. Meet the Press is filmed at NBC’s D.C. studios.

    The law in question is titled: DC High Capacity Ammunition Magazines – D.C. Official Code 7-2506.01, and reads (my bold):

    (b) No person in the District shall possess, sell, or transfer any large capacity ammunition feeding device regardless of whether the device is attached to a firearm. For the purposes of this subsection, the term large capacity ammunition feeding device means a magazine, belt, drum, feed strip, or similar device that has a capacity of, or that can be readily restored or converted to accept, more than 10 rounds of ammunition. The term large capacity ammunition feeding device shall not include an attached tubular device designed to accept, and capable of operating only with, .22 caliber rimfire ammunition.

    Cuba on the Chesapeake where I live has a similar though not quite as draconian law. Where you cannot sell or buy larger capacity magazines, but you can own them. The effect is that if you buy then in a store or gun show in a more American state like PA or VA, you can transport them yourself to you residence and posses them legally. However you cannot purchase them on-line from an out of state vendor and have them shipped. Of course having these serpentine laws only artificially drives up cost for those involved, and does not much else. Some vendors won’t even sell to those in MD rather than try to figure out and remain current on the laws.

    Criminals remain undeterred, because as is obvious they are criminals who by definition disregard the law, and asinine laws don’t change human behaviour. Of course a feature of these type laws and burgeoning regulations is that it is almost impossible to avoid being in violation of one of them making us all criminals and controllable by the threat of selective enforcement.

    This is, I believe, part of the intent of these laws. They make virtually every gun owner subject to improper arrest and being forced to prove tyheir innocence rather than the State beng forced to prove their guilt. I am lucky. I live in a State where most odf the firearms laws are minimal, though we still require a license to carry concealed, and we have some assinine knife laws that prevent me from carrying a decent defensive knife (like the MercWorx Seraphym that my wife gotnme for Christmas). On my ToDo list for the new year is getting in touch with a legislator that I know will be sympathetic to my cause and trying to get some of our knife laws changed. You should be able to carrya a double-edged weapon, and one with a decent length blade. Right now it is easier to carry a gun, and less jail time if you are carrying unlicensend (a misdemenor) than if you are caught with a switchblade (a felony offense)

    @ Iron Fist:
    Practically impossible for a serf like me to obtain a CCW in this state. It looked like due to recent court wins that might change some, but to the nanny-state totalitarians the recent tragedy is a crisis they are not going to waste and are moving with all speed.

    FWIW, my daily carry knife is a stout Zero Tolerance folder that I can open with one hand. I have carried a pocket knife of some type practically every day since I was a cub scout.
