Avatar Wed. 2/6/13 3:09pm das:

What tone!
Avatar Wed. 2/6/13 3:09pm G:

That was an amusing pic. Speaking as a political realist only, and as someone who's never touched a gun: I guess they had the picture stored up in case guns became a campaign issue, but never needed till after Newtown. (If only they were as good at policy as they are at campaigning, sigh.)

The fact that in the unphotoshopped original photo he is shooting straight forward must mean it was target shooting, not upward-aim skeet shooting. That wisp coming out of the top is a training-wheels thing (pressure release feature) that gun shooting places offer if the shooter is a n00b who might fall backwards or break into tears at the recoil.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/6/13 3:09pm rrg:

I'll say. It will soon be bedtime in Paris. For children, it already is.

But if you don't campaign well, then unless you're lucky you don't govern, period. Ask Romney, McCain, etc etc etc
Avatar    Wed. 2/6/13 3:14pm Matt from Springfield:

@glenn: Ah. Well, as long as they're all locked inside their medieval fortress, with their own weapons (and NO Internet--this is a medieval fortress after all) I think it's the last we'll hear from them, assuming they go mad once inside.

Glad to be here with you, Silvio.
Avatar    Wed. 2/6/13 3:17pm Matt from Springfield:

Anyone know what gauge that gun might be? As for recoil, I've shot 12 and (20-something) gauge shotguns before; 20-somethings are managable but harder to hit a target. 12 gauge has massive recoil--but it's like artillery, you *will* hit the target.
Avatar    Wed. 2/6/13 3:18pm Matt from Springfield:

@moustaches: Get a comb!
Avatar Wed. 2/6/13 3:19pm G:

Like I said, no gun expert here, but I read somewhere that people should know say it's a 12 gauge
  Wed. 2/6/13 3:20pm Listening Out There:

Matt...not sure of the gauge, but interestingly, I read earlier that Obama is shooting from a range built for George W. Bush...by a gun club from Newtown - http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/social-issues/raising-adam-lanza/obamas-skeet-shooting-draws-constructive-advice-from-gun-industry-group/

Matt - try firing a Tank cannon. It's supercool and makes you death for 30 seconds, lotsa fun.

Telegraph UK story says "12-gauge Browning Citori shotgun"

you sound stressed and disoriented.
Avatar    Wed. 2/6/13 3:23pm Matt from Springfield:

P.M. = "post meridian" = "after noon"
Avatar Wed. 2/6/13 3:24pm G:

"stressed and disoriented" can sometimes be liberating :)
Avatar    Wed. 2/6/13 3:24pm BSI:

A lot of us paid good money to be "stressed and disoriented" years ago. Some still do, I'm sure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/6/13 3:24pm rrg:

No, Matt. "post meridien". Maybe spell-check mistakenly corrected you there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/6/13 3:25pm rrg:

Oops. I mean "post meridiem".
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/6/13 3:25pm rrg:

Spell-check caught ME.
Avatar    Wed. 2/6/13 3:25pm Matt from Springfield:

@G: If it has that "training wheel" thing, you would think that should be a pretty strong gauge.
@Yair: Never been right next to a tank or artillery piece--I imagine that gets LOUD!
Avatar Wed. 2/6/13 3:26pm glenn:

they're both correct.
Avatar    Wed. 2/6/13 3:26pm Product Placement guy:

@Mike E: looks like the Prez is sponsored by Nike. Just do it, man.

@Matt - best thing is driving one. seriously.
Avatar Wed. 2/6/13 3:26pm G:

So P.M. is Latin for "After you've finally checked out of the Meridien?"
Avatar Wed. 2/6/13 3:27pm still b/p:

Been stressed and disoriented for so long it's not true.

@Mike: Safety, with style.
@LOT: Yes, that's the "National Sports Shooting Federation" or something, coincidentally HQed in Newtown. I don't know if they're more moderate, or more detached from reality than the NRA.

Avatar    Wed. 2/6/13 3:29pm Matt from Springfield:

AH, "post meridiem" meri-diem, middle of the day. Makes better sense now, I typed "meridian" assuming that would be the Latin spelling. "Diem" though out-Latins that.

@G: Violates one of the Rule Zeroes of campaigning--NEVER put on a hat!

They interviewed someone in Dallas who made a ten gallon hat for JFK and presented it to him the morning or day before he was killed. When asked if JFK ever put it on, he said obviously not, but he shook his hand and handed off the hat to an aide.

G, Yes, I think Dave Mandl and Irwin are gradually reintroducing some of these bands as part of a vast prog rock conspiracy.
It will be gradual, but one day you'll realize it's been wall-to-wall Mellotron and flute solos in 7/8 time for months, maybe years.

Oh man, the Pict discussion led to Brigantes, which led to me checking out my old Yorkshire home town and now I've spent the last half an hour checking out the old street online, cooing over the fact that the fish and chip shop I went to is still up and running. As is my old laundrette, and Co-op, and newsagents. And suddenly, I'm cooing over them in a Yorkshire accent. Crap, I've reverted to a former version of myself!

Avatar Wed. 2/6/13 5:44pm G:

Doesn't bother me, I work online. But they always say the snow will be bigger than it comes to be.

However, having lived in NYC since 79 my experience is that we *will* often go weeks or months of winter with minimal snow, then sometimes have one huge storm in Feb or early March. For ex., there was a huge 2+ foot blizzard during NYU spring break week in 93.

I was skeptical about this note-perfect Genesis business, but I just looked up the Phish WotS@RRHoF on YT and all the comments are gushing... That should be a treat, thanks for the tip.

When it snows enough in NY that people have to dig their cars out, do they then "save" the shoveled out space with old chairs and a 2x4?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/6/13 5:48pm Caryn:

Last week, we had a day of snowfall resulting in 2 feet of snow coming down in a few hours, while the surrounding areas had about 1 foot of snow, max. The tv weather maps had a nice spot around our city, talking about how, for some reason, just that area had had way more snow than anywhere else in the southern part of the country. There's supposed to be wave after wave of snow fronts moving in for the next couple of days, so we'll see if we can top last week. (But this won't be as centralised, and thus will be less strange on the weather map.)

@Droll: In Baltimore they put lawnchairs in the spot. In Brooklyn, you just let it go and hope for the best, unless you are really aggressive, and ready to have an actual verbal argument at likely high volume, or car keying, etc etc. I've seen arguments over spaces after a big snow.

At the end they have a shot of Phil Collins with his arm on the table holding his jaw up (literally), and next to him is Steve Hackett motionless with a big grin.
