    Bourbon

    Simply go to Tennessee and tell the distillers they are making bourbon. Quoting NAFTA regulations will not win you any friends there either. In the US only Kentucky makes bourbon. Just like Scotch comes from Scotland and Irish comes from Ireland. You don't have to believe me but if you press...

    What's something modern you won't miss when it becomes obsolete?

    One thing is racism was institutionalized and is represented in a lot of the "banned" media. Since society is very thin skinned about it there are all sorts of cartoons and comedy shorts that will not be seen on TV in our lifetimes. As an example of how it works, just think of Mel Brooks...

    Is chivalry dead?

    I have cousin raised as an only child that has refused to see anyone in the hospital ever. It is his deep seated fear of mortality that he hides from.

    What Was The Last Movie You Watched?

    In that case under 5 days! The movie was meant for the visceral effects so so of the logic was fuzzy at best. However it is still a good movie. Has anyone seen the mcDonalds scene they took out?

    9mm or 45cal

    This is my rifle. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My rifle is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My rifle, without me, is useless.

    Your favorite toys as a kid?

    Aurora Model Road Racing - sort of a smaller home version of slot car racing. Few games were as exciting and were hours of fun for us as kids. Here is a youtube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7n1UEyx9WyY We used to take the back tracking pin so the cars would "corner" and we...
