    Fully automatic weapons are all but completely illegal for citizens to have. To own such a weapon requires a special license/permit and payment of fees after a very thorough background check. All but impossible to have. Most just say they are illegal. But Hey, Flattop and gang are criminals, what do they care about the laws?

    This is the problem with gun control laws, they infringe on the rights of law abiding citizens and do nothing to infringe on criminals and gangs.

    BTW, the use of Tommy guns in the 1929 St. Valentines Day Massacre were one of the primary reasons for the 1934 National Firearms Act which made fully automatic weapons VERY difficult to obtain. "In 1934, the National Firearms Act didn’t ban machine-guns, but it heavily taxed and regulated them. That regulation stands today. Then Congress passed the Firearm Owners’ Protection Act of 1986, which bans the sale of “new” fully automatic weapons, which is why fully automatic guns today are older weapons. To own a fully automatic weapon, a machine gun, the owner must obtain a federal ATF stamp, undergo an extensive background check and even notify local authorities that they own such a weapon. In the more than four decades that I have been a journalist, I have never covered or heard of a murder in the U.S. in which the shooter fired a registered fully automatic weapon. Mother Jones magazine has cataloged shootings going back to 1982, and not one involved the use of a fully automatic machine gun. "

    Better option is to get a nice double sided razor like a 1970’s Gillette Black Beauty adjustable razor and get some nice blades like the Astra Greens. Get a shaving bowl with ridges to help whip up lather, and just a nice Synthetic brush. For Shaving Cream, either Taylor of Old Bond Street or Phoenix Artisans Accoutrements (Cavendish is awesome). For the occasional nick, a block of alum. Learn to shave with the grain, then across the grain, and then against the grain and you are set.

    No, the comment from the officer that its against the law to climb trees after he just saved somebody. In the last panel the officer said he was just joking but in real life, it come true.

    How much a month does it cost you - Nothing, just plug the phone into the wall. I have landline service for my home alarm system.

    and how many emergencies was it neede for? - Never needed yet but when the power fails, I will have a phone line that works compared to thee cordless phones. And when the cell towers are jammed and overloaded, I may be able to still get through.

    Just asking for a friend.

    Sadly that is the way life in getting in far too many places, especially NYC, Chicago, and anywhere in California.

    Maybe Calvin will grow up and write a series of books or a comic strip or even a tv show about a little boy growing up in the future.

    We keep an older phone (Trimline Princess I think it was called). It plugs into the wall with an RJ-11 jack. Why keep it? when the power fails, and the cell towers are jammed to capacity, the plug in phones will still work at their power comes through the wires from the phone company.

    Note that the phone system even with the wired phones only had capacity for ⅓ of the people to talk. It has never been possible for ½ of the company to pick up the phone and talk to the other half. Note sure what the status is for Cellular phones.

    Other fact, in the not too distant past, the 404 area code for Atlanta Georgia was the world’s largest toll free calling area. They split in into 404 and 770. It is still the world’s largest toll free calling area.

    Also: Why was the govt so concerned about the breakup of AT&T and forcing them to let other companies use their lines? Scattered across the country are hardened communication switching sites that were designed to provide communications in the event of war. When AT&T broke up the question was who would be responsible for those sites?

    Further side note – Go research the “secret” of The Greenbrier in W Virginia. Highly guarded secret until the 90s when a newspaper broke the story.

    My problem is I had a Apple PowerBook (first aluminum one) for 7.5 years. Bought it when it first came out. Then the power supply failed and there were no parts to fix it. Even non-Apple places said it wasn’t worth the cost of repairs. Limped along until I got a 20111 iMac.

    It is now starting to give signs of issues at 12+ years old. Problem? None of the connectors on my External Hard Drives or the iMac match to anything on the new PowerBook laptop except USB. Try transferring 700,000 GB (¾ TB) over USB. Sigh, should have replaced it earlier.

    BTW solution is ThunderBolt 2 cable into the iMac and then an adapter for TB2 to ThunderBolt 4 which goes into the laptop.

    They all make money by charging for commercial air time. The rate is affected by their ratings, thus they will do anything to increase their ratings. Both sides are equally guilty. Including CNN with their “Most Peaceful Protest” proclamation about the riots. (That one seems to hang in there.) Fox is guilty of the same, just second verse to the same old song.
