    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.

    Clever but he's way too nice to the thieves.  The fart spray was a nice touch.    :coffee

    Agreed. He should have made the package give a one time fog spray of chloroform. Call the cops, give them the GPS location of the package and thief, and let them do pick up for the arrest. This might violate some baiting hunting laws, but the streets would be cleaner and the cops deserve at least one stress free arrest  ;) .

    Ehhh, knocking people out while a vehicle is in motion can be dangerous.  If it were just to the thieves, it'd be one thing, but it'd also be a danger to innocent people on the road.

    Agreed but I think he was just throwing it out there for discussion.  And for the record, chloroform is not like getting tased where you immediately lose voluntary motor control ( usually ).  Any gaseous agent like that has to reach critical concentration(s) to elicit the desired effect, no?   :hmm
    Might take a few seconds or if the windows are down and the car is moving at road speed it might not happen at all.  Or so it seems to me. 

    My own thinking runs toward a prank I heard about many years ago where a vile smelling liquid was sealed inside a plastic bag ( vacuum storage bag as I recall ) and rigged to be slit on four corners by razor blades when the lid of the two part box was raised off the bottom section.  I think the box used was a modified apple box or something similar.   The box was not airtight or water tight and the liquid would immediately run out of the lowest corner of the box through four, small, strategically placed holes.   

    Apparently the target of this prank was not highly thought of and managed to really pi$$ off somebody so they brewed up some truly vile stuff and came up with the delivery system and had it delivered to the guy's house with a very legitimate and official looking return address.  The story goes that his wife took the package inside and set it on a table and later when she talked to him on the phone and asked about it he told her to go ahead and open it while he was on the phone with her.  The subsequent cussing and screaming caused him to call the cops and bail out of work for home at best speed.  When they all arrived the wife was still puking in the front yard and nobody could stand to go in the house because of the smell.  Apparently the prank made the evening news in the small town where this happened and was talked about for a week.

    If anyone is looking for details on the construction of said device it's in one of George Hayduke's revenge manuals. :cool

    Thanks for the source.  I had not realized this idea was published material.   We ( a co-worker and I ) kicked this idea around vis a vis feasibility on a few long overnight shifts.  We prototyped a box and found that a smaller box works better in that it doesn't get unbalanced as badly and provides more support for the internal structure than a larger box does. 

    We accidentally stumbled on a potent recipe for a vile smelling liquid after summer holiday week-end cookout.   Rotting potatoes and shrimp shells allowed to ferment together in a trash can over a couple of hot days creates an unbelievable stench.  Truly, this is hazmat level stuff.  Ack .  .  .   :vomit

    It was so bad we hesitated to try and handle it - let alone unleash it on someone.

    I’m not finding anything awesome about the internet. When I do log on, this is what’s waiting for me.


    I miss the days where this was a place to hang out instead of what it is now, a place for @apps47inc to peddle cheap s___.

    Drop in on southeasttraders.com if you guys have time. I think you’ll enjoy it.

    I think I’m done here.

    I believe this is the half time show.

    Much ado with noise and ruckus, accomplishing nothing.




    I saw a photo exchange (Twitter/Instagram) the other day:
    A BLM protestor asking where the 2A supporters were and why weren't the 2A supporters protecting the peaceful BLM protests
    And there was an answering post of: Why support the BLM when they will be demanding more gun laws tomorrow?

    Now that is a post I'd like to save.
