13 Predictions For When I\’m An Old Man

May 24th, 2007 by Kevin

Grumble Grumble Grumble. I\’ve been tagged with a new meme…although I\’ve been bitching about immigration so much lately I could use a change.

Because of my extreme youth (heh, that\’s the story I\’m sticking with!), my \”old age\” is so far in the future predictions should be barely comprehendable. And as you all know that is my expertise!!

  1. Instead of being the 20-something grouchy neighbor yelling at the kids to get off his lawn, I\’ll be the old grouchy neighbor yelling at the kids to get off his lawn.
  2. My firearm collection will reach cataclysmic proportion, and will collapse upon itself forming a black hole in my gun cabinet.
  3. I will start selling tickets to tour my black hole, admission will be free but I ask that you leave behind your credit card as a deposit.
  4. The aging members of the MN Militia, in a severe bout of senility, will accidentally invade Brazil and declare it their private hunting sanctuary
  5. Upon hearing the news, France surrenders….twice for good measure.
  6. Having cured all other diseases, medical science turns it\’s attention towards liberalism
  7. Breaking an 80 year streak, MN Militia member DrunkGuy will briefly sober up enough to comment, \”When did we leave the bar?\”, before tackling the nearest waitress and demanding alcohol. When later questioned by police, he will be heard to utter \”boobs\”.
  8. The final chant of \”Bush Lied, People Died\” will be uttered…
  9. We will finally get the flying cars we\’ve been promised!!
  10. Having torched every car on the continent, discontent French Muslim youths will turn to burning wood. Greenpeace declares war on France.
  11. France surrenders again….
  12. A popular coup will bring democracy to Russia…..again.
  13. The enforcement measures promised us by illegal immigration amnesty advocates will still not be implemented.

A to Z : Why I\’m Considered A Weapon Of Mass Dementia

April 27th, 2007 by Kevin

I got tagged by Tiger Lilly, and while she\’s only 13, I should probably do what she says otherwise she\’s likely to hurt me. Heh, those of you snickering have to meet her first.

So here\’s how it works….question A to Z…I answer them, you read them, and then we call it finished? Sounds good fine….here goes….

A- Available or Single?


B- Best Friend.

I once heard someone say that a friend will bail you out of jail, but your best friend will be the one sitting in the cell with you saying \”Dude, that was sooo cool\”. By that standard I\’d have to say my best friend is the collective group that comprises the MN Militia.

C- Cake or Pie.

Diary Queen Ice Cream Cakes

D- Drink of Choice.

Beer….mmmmm, beer

sorry, I had to clean the drool off the keyboard.

E- Essential Item.

Go go gadget computer!!!

F- Favorite Color.

It makes it easier to explain my complete lack of style if I just pretend I\’m colorblind

G- Gummi Bears or Worms.


H- Hometown.

Grew up in Champlin, MN

I- Indulgence.

If it\’s bad for me, immoral, fattening or stupid, then yes I do.

J- January or February.

Whichever has more snow in it

K- Kids.

Scare me….or at least other people\’s do. I\’ve been told I\’ve improved so I\’m being threatened with babysitting.

L- Life is incomplete without

Carbon….at least on this planet

M- Marriage Date.

Sometime between now and when I die.

N- Number of Siblings?

Two younger sisters

O- Oranges or Apples?


P- Phobias/Fears.

Tornadoes…despite the fact that I love bad storms. But had a close call with a tornado that I\’m not keen on repeating.

Q- Favorite Quote.

\”I\’d rather be right than politically correct\”, this one has been mistakenly attributed to me by multiple people. It\’s not mine but I\’ve filed for adoption.

R- Reasons to smile.

It makes liberals miserable to see people happy….so smile!!

S- Season.


T- Tag Three.

This goes to three non-bloggers….Drunkguy, CC, and 50c. Respond in the comments….or else….something.

U- Unknown Fact About Me.

Well honestly if it\’s unknown how am I gonna know it?? I barely remember my phone number.

V- Vegetarian or Oppressor of Animals.

Tyrant of Animals is probably a better description…

W- Worst Habit.

I bite my nails…there…my horrible secret is out!

X- X-rays or Ultrasounds.

I\’ve had both, and X-Rays suck slightly less.

Y- Your Favorite Foods.

Beer….wait, I said that already…..Pretty much anything unhealthy for me.

Z- Zodiac.

I Am Not A Crook

February 10th, 2007 by Kevin

You Are Most Like Richard Nixon

Oh sure, you give people plenty of reasons to call you \”Tricky Dick.\”

But you\’re actually quite diplomatic, even though you secretly hate your enemies.

What Modern US President Are You Most Like?

Hmmm, this might explain why two days ago, 12 different computers at the US Department of Justice hit my site in the span of 1.5 hours.

Me Tarzan You Blog Reader

January 29th, 2007 by Kevin

Really….did you expect any different?

Would you survive in the wild?

Your Result: Yesiree!….

You could live in the wild if you wanted to! You know what to eat, do, and stay away from! You could get shelter, food, water fast and easy-and the right treatments to injuries, snake bites etc…You know the outdoors like the back of your hand!!

Most likely you'll survive….
Not to sure…
Wouldn't last 2 minutes!…..
Would you survive in the wild?
Quizzes for MySpace

I was an Eagle Scout and a member of the Order of the Arrow, so it's nice to see I picked up something here and there. But honestly the test isn't that hard, and alot of it is just commonsense (admittedly not common). Keep to the basics, don't panic and be prepared.

What You Talking Aboot!?

January 12th, 2007 by Kevin

From Bogus Gold, Hammerswing, and Nightwriter

What American accent do you have?

Your Result: North Central

\”North Central\” is what professional linguists call the Minnesota accent. If you saw \”Fargo\” you probably didn\’t think the characters sounded very out of the ordinary. Outsiders probably mistake you for a Canadian a lot.

The West
The Inland North
The Midland
The Northeast
The South
What American accent do you have?
Quiz Created on GoToQuiz

Ahhh, tis true. I do have the Minnesotan accent. I have been mistaken for Canadian at times, and I didn\’t get what people thought was funny about Fargo. Heh, I\’m from Minnesota, what do you expect….unlike those other imposters I listed above.

How Sarcastic Are You?

July 23rd, 2006 by Kevin

You\’re Totally Sarcastic

You sarcastic? Never! You\’re as sweet as a baby bunny.
Seriously, though, you have a sharp tongue – and you aren\’t afraid to use it.
And if people are too wimpy to deal with your attitutde, then too bad. So sad.

Which SitCom Character??

June 23rd, 2006 by Kevin

Grrr, I\’ve been laying low and trying to keep to myself, but I knew it was only a matter of time. I\’ve been tagged with a meme. And bloggers, as we all know, are physically incapable of resisting memes.

Besides…this one actually made me think. Which sitcom character would I want to be?? Sitcom?? They still make those??

Well….tough decision. I mean what one-sided stereotypical character do I go for??

I mean my first impulse would be The Fonz, I mean who is cooler than Fonzie of Happy Days???

On the other hand, he was a dropout and probably was never gonna leave that damn diner. So how about Monty Burns, who basically owns Springfield and has enough money to do something pretty freaking cool every episode.

Hmmm, but then again he\’s old and boring. So how about Stan (the father) from American Dad!….think about it a gun-happy CIA weapons expert who worships Reagan and is able to taser damn near anyone.

Maybe I\’ll alternate amongst them.

Now who do I tag that hasn\’t already been tagged???

Hmmm, ever since Hugh Hewitt tagged Nihilist this thing has bounced around the MOB….we must spread the wealth. So Harvey of Bad Example, take that! Who else to torture? Well their father already got tagged, but I tag the two youngest members of the Nightwriter clan.

How Evil Are You?

March 6th, 2006 by Kevin

Ok I\’ll accept the verdict, I would have figured it for higher, but heh, that\’s the way the kittens get punted out a 30th floor window.

But someone tell me how the hell me shooting a gun and liking it makes me even the slightest bit evil??

You Are 68% Evil

You are very evil. And you\’re too evil to care.
Those who love you probably also fear you. A lot.
