Life is Hard. Wear a Helmet.

Life is Hard. Wear a Helmet

Virginia State Constitution: Article 1; Section 13
That a well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the proper, natural, and safe defense of a free state, therefore, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed; that standing armies, in time of peace, should be avoided as dangerous to liberty; and that in all cases the military should be under strict subordination to, and governed by, the civil power.

Alabama State Constitution: Article 1: Section 26
That every Citizen has a right to bear arms in defense of himself and the State.

Anzac Day - time for Bikkies

The rumor that these babies will keep forever is fairly true. Once they harden up, keep them wrapped up and you can nom on them for a month.
The rumor that they can later be melted down and used in bullet molds has not been tested, but now that CTone has read about it, we'll probably get a range report soon...

  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 4 oz butter
  • 2 tablespoons boiling water
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda (add a little more water if mixture is too dry)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (180 Celsius if you're actually Australian)

Grease a cookie sheet.

In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients.

In a small saucepan over a medium heat (or in a microwave proof jug or bowl in the microwave), combine the butter and syrup until the butter has melted.

In a small bowl, combine the boiling water and baking soda.

Add the soda and water mixture with the melted butter and syrup.

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix thoroughly.

Dollop teaspoonfuls of the biscuit mixture onto the greased baking tray. Don't forget that the biscuits WILL spread during baking, so make sure you leave room for them to spread!

Bake for 12 minutes, or until golden brown.

Remove from oven.

Allow to cool on the tray for a few minutes.

Those heroes that shed their blood
And lost their lives.
You are now lying in the soil of a friendly country.
Therefore rest in peace.
There is no difference between the Johnnies
And the Mehmets to us where they lie side by side
Here in this country of ours.
You, the mothers,
Who sent their sons from far away countries
Wipe away your tears,
Your sons are now lying in our bosom
And are in peace
After having lost their lives on this land they have
Become our sons as well.
~ Kemal Ataturk, Anzac Day 1934

Pax - What the Hell's a Timtam?

Old NFO - I've used mine for targets, but the ricochets got too dangerous.

Paxford said...

MSgt B!!! - an audible gasp and a look of profound pity occured when I read of the lack of Tim-Tams in your life.

I must rectify this omission AT ONCE - email me an address (your work one will do!)and TT bounty will rain upon you

@MSgt B

Only a "little bit"?

TImtams on their way to you shortly (plus some extras - the caramello koalas might be to your good Lady Wife's tastes :)

You know, I could probably get lots of velocity out of these. I wonder how well I could get them to expand in deer flesh?
