Holy crapola! I just realized I have a cache of about two hundred high-capacity magazines I no longer need. I’ll post a link when I open my auction. (some of them even have a yellow smiley-face on them–very user-friendly!)
Hand ax: aka the ST-one Model of 19,110-BC MK-II ambidextrous edged repeater.
Although originally adapted for hunting and food preparation, it has historically been adapted for both personal defense, warfare, crime, and sport and can be operated by both men and women of varying skill. It was designed to be manufactured in primitive societies in home workshops with locally available materials by unskilled workers. No records exist of numbers or locations of these weapons or their manufacturing facilities and distribution. Original examples are valued museum pieces. The hand ax is criticized by some as a danger due to its inability to be safely disabled and its general accessibility by children, criminals, and the insane. There is also a movement to outlaw the assault variants — for example, the MK-III which is fitted with a stick grip (which has no sporting purpose), the MK-IV which can be carried in bags of more than ten, and the MK-V which can easily be concealed under a loincloth. Note: there is already a $200 tax on the MK-VI variants which may be fired by sling.

Sling shots!!!! a Y of wood and rubber from inner tubes tied to it and a knot in the middle or a nice piece of leather from an old shoe or boot for the rock holder. Pull back as far as you can aim and let go— >>>>>>>>>>>>>wham!!

^ and there’s always the original slingshot. A few feet of leather thongs, a pouch, a rock, dead Goliath.
I actually became an expert at those things when I was about 11. I could hit about a 3′ square from 200′. I even made them for me and my friends. You could seriously hurt somebody at about 100 yards with one of those.
Hog: it occurs to me that since there were no elastic mesh products in Little David’s day, that pouch he used to launch the rock that beaned Goliath might have been is leather jock strap.
Once the guns are gone, the ST-1 might be used to kill children (and others) — just as it has for thousands of years — and is still used in most places including all islamic hell-holes around the world. Therefore, they should be outlawed. If I were a Democrat legislator, I would introduce legislation right away to have a serial number put on every rock in the country, the private exchange or rocks outlawed, and a government bureau set up monitor the movement of all registered rocks.
When owning rocks is a crime, only criminals will own rocks.
PeggyU 10: oh how true.

OK, ladies. Surrender those thongs for America’s freedom!

Ahhh the days of the bouncy bra less and nothing to unhook. Trouble was there were those who shouldn’t have been bra less!! If you like little titties you only have one hook to open. If you like the big buzzoogas I call them 4 hookers front or back.

Yeah, it’s amazing how quickly a conversation can degenerate to this level. I’ll take some of the blame, but not all of it.

tctsunami 18: I’m still working on how to unsnap a bra with some girl I’m making out with.
Maybe you should begin by telling her that you’ll show her how David’s sling worked if she will just take it off. Then go to making out after you’ve showed her.
You might want to practice first — remember that Ewok in Star Wars Episode VI.

Aside: sure wish that they would start making bras with velcro closure…..
Besides the obvious ease of just ripping it off, there is the advantage of finer and more satisfying fit for the wearer. Yeah, that’s it — I’m just concerned that the ladies wearing them have a more comfortable fit….

If nothing else, I think we have achieved some kind of record here: Turning a thread about a rock into boobs.
