I still have the trash pickup bag and the burnable pile as well. I use the .40 to make the holes in the 55 gal drum. The .44 is much to pricey to use as a hole punch. :D

I made those big holes with a 12 ga. with #2 shot at about 1 yard. toothy There's a few .45 holes in there as well.

Which reminds me ... it needs more draft. :rambo2:

I must be pretty darned elitist.... Scored between 5 and 8.

For the record, before I went into recovery I drank PBR on a regular and consistent basis. :o

And who the heck watches full episodes of Oprah? I've only seen that show when sitting in a waiting room.

I live in Connecticut and work in Higher Education; which puts me in firm elitist territory, I suppose. :shock:

Result

On a scale from 0 to 20 points, where 20 signifies full engagement with mainstream American culture and 0 signifies deep cultural isolation within the new upper class bubble, you scored between 13 and 16.

In other words, you don't even have a bubble.


0 = bad

20 =good .........

But you know enough to burn coal!!!!! That fact isn't very "elitist" and has to count for something I would think. :D

Right? I get so angry about the anti-coal thing. We have huge amounts of coal in this country, and the technology to reduce emissions from coal burning. We could burn coal in electrical plants to generate electricity, steam, and chilled water to serve neighboring homes and buildings and get the efficiency of the operation up close to 90%. We could save jobs all throughout coal country. Instead folks just vilify it, act like you are singularly responsible for every environmental problem because you burn a small amount of coal to heat your home.

_rant_ off.

I scored 0-4 but I did stay in a Holiday Inn express last week and I do know that the above is an oxymoron, so is that a plus or minus? I've never watched Oprah but I do enjoy Tom and Jerry reruns so that makes me much smarter than an Oprah watcher yes? If this isolates me from society ---- yeah --- that's the general idea. I am most attracted to people who not only don't listen to the beat of the same drummer but don't even know there is a drummer in the band. I am turned off by people who invent stooopid quizzes. What is wrong with Outback?
