Is that little gun used for killing small rodents and maybe the occasional bug? Maybe the literature should say: “Takes the place of a high powered fly swatter. Scope not included.”

Anyone else realize all the pics on the swissminigun website are rendered?

Oh not all just the majority

From the page you linked about Kukhri rum:

The khukri, carried by Gurkha soldiers as a side-arm, is centuries old. It is said that a Gurkha does not unsheathe the knife without the promise of drawing someone’s blood.

Well, yeah, sure. Unless they’re using it to chop wood or something.

(Sorry. Over the top crap like that makes me laugh.)

isn’t ‘no frills’ when preceded by ‘airline’ redundant these days?

Wasn’t JF having a rodent problem? That’s obviously what the gun is for.

i drove a DB5 at a track day a few years ago. best car i have driven and will ever drive. the power and torque were amazing. seeing the other drivers in ferrari’s etc come alongside very quickly out of the corners, but as the straight went on the aston just built the speed up. amazing day :)

That tea house, and its staff, is quite impressive.

Photograph number ten has the wrong caption.

It should read: “Customer makes a complaint. Employee reacts.”
