GIANT FREAKING ANNOUNCEMENT


I hereby announce my interest in covering all cash bets on whether or not my van arrives (with me in it + steel + guns + tent + food) at the shoot location BEFORE 0800 Friday morning.

I'll be there for the Shooters' Safety Meeting, or I'll be damned.

All you smarty-pants who keep saying I'm gonna be late, put your worthless green toilet-paper-like FRNs where your mouths are.

I'm not giving odds, though. It's risky enough already.

The Organs [police] would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers . . . and notwithstanding all of Stalin‘s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt." - A.
