On the anniversary of a beloved family member who has passed, whether recently or decades prior, many relatives may get together to remember the life of the individual. It may even be a tradition. In loving memory, they may share stories of his or her life. Family members may even establish a foundation for people to donate to in his or her honor. That’s the way to do it right.

The way to do it wrong was recently demonstrated by the wacky widow, Yoko Ono, wife of the late John Lennon. I was going to add, member of The Beatles, but if you don’t know that, you really need to examine your life as a whole.

Yoko took the occasion of the 36th anniversary of John’s untimely death with a call for Gun Control in America. What have we conservatives always said about liberals? Yes – that everything boils down to politics. They must make everything – good, bad or indifferent, into a political statement.

Yoko tweeted that, “We are turning this beautiful country into a war zone.” Who is this we? Do you have a mouse in your pocket – or perhaps a scary AR-15 “assault rifle? We aren’t turning America into anything. Drug dealers, gang-bangers and cop killers have turned our cities into war zones. You know – the cities entirely controlled by leftists like Yoko. read more

Compressed air cannons are great. By properly employing one, you can launch almost anything, assuming you can generate enough pressure.

We’ve all seen the Punkin Chunkin, pumpkin launching contests, held at least annually around the United States. These guys (and girls) roll out massive cannons with super long barrels. The longer the barrel, the more speed can be generated and the further the pumpkin will travel. Because of the length of these barrels the pumpkins can be traveling at 600 mph when exiting the cannon which result in great distances.

The television show Myth Busters broke the sound barrier using nothing more than a super long air cannon and a ping-pong ball. The guys on Top Gear (the English original – not the crappy new versions) launched several cars using only an air cannon.

Medieval battles might have been more interesting as the attacking force could have fired projectiles with air cannons, rather than those clunky monstrous trebuchets. It would have been easy to fire over castle walls and a lot more accurate. read more
