Pork ribs on the smoker for 4 hours.

It ain't much but it's honest work.

Happy 4th of July weekend everyone.

Did I ever tell you I shot a man, and killed him, because he was burning to death? True story. Not a joke. And such.

I had shot this... fellow, and set his car on fire. He was unfazed, bless his heart! He dismounted, grabbed his rifle, and I shot him again. Well, after this engagement, I thought he was dead.

Then, as I had nothing better to do than sit and watch "corpses", I saw this man on the ground, and his chest was moving...

...then the flames started licking his legs.. I had a choice...

Even though this person had been, just a moment before, an "enemy combatant", well, I could not suffer watching another person sit and burn alive.

So, after consultation with my vehicle's crew, I shot this poor son-of-a-bitch with my machine gun.. ending his misery and my own...

I gotta tell ya, war is a racket.

The John Deere motorized play UTV my 3yo has has two “speeds” (just a high/low power setting not a transmission) that has been locked in low since he’s been driving it. His cousins were over today and with all of them piled in it, it would barely move.

Today was the day he got to experience high power. The look in his eyes after he started hauling ass in this thing that for his whole life was half as fast was priceless, shock and excitement. He loves it.

Tin foil hat on: 

@MountainJay @GMOdysseys reject authoritarians, be they left or right. We need rules but not rulers. Monarchy minus 1 ruler doesn’t mean chaos…anarchy doesn’t mean absence of rules.

14.4lbs of pork shoulder butt in the smoker.

(Technically it began last night with a liberal coating and rub of chipotle and jalapeño seaoning.)

Tombstone: The Great Chinese Famine, 1958-1962
by Yang Jisheng

"An estimated thirty-six million Chinese men, women, and children starved to death during China's Great Leap Forward in the late 1950s and early '60s. One of the greatest tragedies of the twentieth century, the famine is poorly understood, and in China is still euphemistically referred to as "the three years of natural disaster.""
