Guess someone noticed us.

Guess someone noticed us.

We were running a group buy on GIMPs for some emergency bivvy sacks. Apparently we caused a decent spike in the vendor’s traffic — their usage logs reported a number of hits from the forum. I got this email earlier in the week: Hi Dr Faulken, I am the owner of redflarekits.com website. I have […]

PSA: Most Extreme Elimination Challenge out on DVD

If you haven’t seen this already, or have never heard of the Most Extreme Elimination Challenge, the first season is now out on DVD. In case MXC is new to you: two Americans provide Mystery Science Theater-style fake voice overs to footage from late 80s Japanese game show Takeshi’s Castle. The commentary is often crude […]

Hoity Toity Game Review

Hoity Toity Game Review

I recently acquired Hoity Toity, a game by Klaus Teuber, creator of Settlers of Catan. If you’ve been a longtime Gibberish reader, you know how much we love Settlers around here. I received Hoity Toity as part of my $10 “Tanga Trash” item sold during a recent Tangathon at Tanga.com. The premise of the game […]

Playing the parts game: 922R and “assault weapons”

Playing the parts game: 922R and “assault weapons”

I recently bought a Tapco T6 adjustable stock for my fair condition Yugoslavian SKS. The stock on my Yugo was beat up pretty bad; cracked in two places with a mighty ding in the left shoulder. I wanted a replacement stock, and not just another wood one — maybe one of those newfangled plastic stocks […]

No matter, the first session covered stances and footwork, all of which has been repeated in the following classes. The class has about twenty people in it, with students aged from about nine to probably […]

Norelco G390 review

Norelco G390 review

I’m a naturally hairy guy. We’ve covered this in some of the other grooming category entries and my 21 Percent saga. When you’re a naturally hair guy, you need an assortment of weapons to keep things manageable. Add in a request to grow a full beard, and now body hair control requirements go through the […]

Cylon doesn’t get far

Cylon doesn’t get far

A combination of weird weather, other-business, and exposure on my foot means that my motorcycle Cylon isn’t getting nearly the workout I would like this year. Granted, by this time last year I’d just started my 3000 mile pledge, but I feel like I should have more ticks on the odometer because I’m much better […]
