Read in "The Curve of Binding Energy" that the amount of mass converted to energy in the Nagasaki bomb was about 1/3 of a penny.

I still ponder that. 
When traveling with firearms, "I've been told" that it's best to have a copy of that airlines baggage rules regarding firearms as well as a copy of TSA rules with you to show those working there who are unaware.
Printed both out,  Made sure the Southwest part about a second firearm in the case being OK.  Read elsewhwere that SW does not require you to open it at the counter, would be a pain with four padlocks.  Suppose you have to do whatever the ticketing drones want if you expect to get it loaded.  Wife thinks i should have a copy of hawaii registration, but never seen anything about proving they are yours.

Do plan on getting there real early in case of any bullshiite from SW or TSA.
Fly HA. They had some really low fares very recently.
We have a couple discount vouchers for SW we needed to use, and I prefer the nonstop to Phoenix.

Connecting flights make me uneasy considering flying with a firearm.   United is woke, and has connections in Calif.  Swore I will not set foot in that state again.  May still have a TRO floating around there.

I had considered just shipping the rifle, but did not want to deal with USPS or the commercial carrier BS.
Will be taking a cased rifle and handgun (in same locked case) to the mainland in a couple months on Southwest.  Their ticket counter at KOA was a rather temporary looking thing last summer.

Last time I flew them with ammo in a checked bag out of Kona, they did not seem to know how to deal with it.  Had to find someone that did.  Hoping they have their act together now.

Had to partially unpack (with all those waiting behind us), so they could see we put some just filled out form there with it.   Wondering if I show up with a big Pelican case and declare it if it will cause mass confusion again?  Know about standing around for 15 minutes or so if TSA wants me to open it.

Can someone please let mr. Ige know?  He seems to always be behind the curve lately.......
Read a few days ago that Kermit is thinking of redefining "vaccinated" as having the booster.

Have a trip to Arizona coming up soon, so went to that accursed Hawaii Travels website to enter the trip and get the bullshiite process started to we can just get off the plane coming back and not stand in some line for an hour or more.

Figured to get the thing done now before the gov. idiots change the rules on what is vaccinated or not.  Imagine my shock when I received the "QR" postage stamp thingee within hours.  Seems they have given up the return questionnaire that had to be filled out within 24 hours of flying back.

Now will see if they rescind it moving the goalposts.

I logged in a few days ago for the first time in almost 10 months when I got word that pissant millennial chick that insulted my wife for her choices was gone for good.

Site went Tango uniform almost immediately, thought it was something I did.   Did not mean to........

On the BI, they just drive/drag them to some road and leave them there on the side.

Then the scavengers descend on the new "pick and pull" source like crows.   

Soon enough, nothing but a shell left, rotting for all the tourists to gawk at.

Dominion Advisor Met With John Podesta Offering ‘Anything’ That Would Help Defeat Trump, According to Email Released by WikiLeaks
What a shock, almost as much as O'Keefe exposing CNN for blatant partisan manipulation and lying.

people will gradually be allowed to do things

Well, gee, that's awfully white of them to allow us our Constitutional rights again.

Anyone read just where it is that little dork Falsey had the authority to farque up the country?

Anyone recall when he was elected, and if so, what elected position has that power over us?

This is not war emergency after all.

Cyber Warfare election fraud. The machines are compromised. The only way to ensure a fair election is to go back to paper ballots.
I still am convinced the China virus through cooordination with Bidet/DNC.   
It was released to make the case for mail in voting through "stay at home", which of course led to the clearly stole election
Hacking the machines was just insurance.

Sounds gang related, this isn't the best area and had 3 other shootings in the past few weeks in the area.
Just like keeping the drums for the Chinese Virus going, this will be added to the screeches for more gun control.

Solid night of sleep, and all hints of muscle/joint aches are gone.  Much faster back to normal than the first shot, just more rough the day after.

I had a few who got merderna say that working out day of getting the shot, lessens the side effects. Broscience.
I went before the shot, heavy rows and squating.  Always makes me sore, this just amplified it.

Today, not nearly so bad.
Order up some 80% lowers & pistol frames while you're at it!   :rofl:
My wife said a box with some strange plastic parts arrived in Arizona when she was there.
Must be spare paperweights.

Coul swear I saw some mention recently of Ballard being involved in some sort of corruption.

Guess she will never get the thrill of putting some firearm owner "through the system" as punishment for defending themself.

We have Hawaii Telco's slowest DSL link, and no limit that I have ever heard of.  Seems to be fast enough for wife's streaming needs.   Ony $25 a month.

I am mostly curious of this new ala carte Spectrum thing, and how the box they give you is.

One of the best things I ever did was to not replace my old TV when it died. Now I just have to work on the internet addiction.
Without internet, I would have no window on the world.

Funny about your TV dying.  My 14 year old Panasonic plasma crapped out.  luckily, they programmed in a blink code that was fan failure.

Sure enough, on of the cooling fans was dead.  Played hell finding the right replacement, important so the frequency signal it sends is correct.  Took the back off, swapped the $35 fan, and all is fine again.

That saved hundreds of dollars, and I only see LCD TVs that compare to plasma that are $$$  They also seem to have dropped making the size i have in the cabinet, all larger now.
