    So true

    I have to think of Einstein here: "Two things only are limitless: The universe and human stupidity - and I'm not so sure about the universe!"

    Rough Camping & Survival Tips

    Some very handy, lightweight survival items that I carry: 1) Survival matches in a film container (yes, those are getting harder to come by in the digital age) 2) Fishing hooks and line - not just where there is water, you can catch birds with them just as well 3) Survival blanket 4) Folding...

    English Language

    Hi, bluey, if you want to surprise them, try "Wii anah" (phonetic, no guarantee for spelling!). My builder learned it from Phillipino colleagues. It means: "Time to go home yet?"

    I think I might be an idiot!

    Sometimes I pity North Americans with their deer tags. In New Zealand and Australia, deer are considered pests. If you want to shoot one (or 2 or 5), all you need is a firearms license and permission from the land owner. I can go out any weekend I want and hunt deer (there are times I leave them...

    Women's Seminar

    A group of women were at a seminar on how to live in a loving relationship with your husband. The women were asked, "How many of you love your husband?" All the women raised their hands. Then they were asked, "When was the last time you told your husband you loved him?" Some...

    Who Wants To Move To Guam?

    Proof That The World Is Nuts In Lebanon, men are legally allowed to have sex with animals, but the animals must be female. Having sexual relations with a male animal is punishable by death. (Like THAT makes sense.) *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* In Bahrain, a male doctor may legally...

    Sex After Death

    A couple made a deal that whoever died first would come back and ... inform the other if there is sex after death. Their biggest fear was that there was no after-life at all. After a long life together, the husband was the first to die. True to his word, he made the first contact: "...

    Has anyone hunted in the "tactical style" or military style desert boots?

    I have been hunting and hiking for 2 years in my Danner TFX desert boots. Great boots, light weight, easy on the feet, good grip yet flexible soles, very quiet. I have spilled blood on them frequently gutting deer, and just stuffed them in the washing machine. The soles are wearing down now, but...

    Warning: Don't take your husband shopping!

    After I retired, my wife insisted that I accompany her on her trips to Walmart. Unfortunately, like most men, I found shopping boring and preferred to get in and get out. Equally unfortunate, my wife is like most women - she loves to browse. Yesterday my dear wife received the following...

    Good Samaritan

    We all know the story of the Good Samaritan. What most people don't know is that after the Rabbi and the Levi had come and gone, and before the Good Samaritan appeared on the scene, two Psychologists passed the victim of the robbers. They looked at him, beat up, bleeding and semi-comatose, and...

    TANZANIA: Natasha Illum Berg Female PH

    It's her philosophy of life, roughly "Give it all you've got". I think it's from her book: "Tea on the Blue sofa", about the murder of her partner. She also wrote one called "Floeder af roed jord", "Rivers of Red Earth" about her life as a PH which unfortunately is not translated into English. I...

    Hunting Knife Pictures

    My all time favorite! It is older than I am, German hunting / belt knife. It may not be shiny and pretty, but it fits my hand, takes a beautiful edge, and gets the job done every time! For big jobs (pelvis, branches for blind) I prefer a lightweight folding pruning saw.

    Vintage Hunting Pictures Non Africa

    The story behind this picture would be interesting. In spite of the tiger, the whole picture looks very European, from the headgear to the thatched stone hut, the dogs and the general vegetation. Was this an escaped tiger from a zoo or circus? Another possibility that just crossed my mind might...

    Ivan Carter And Elephant Charges

    I believe there is a moral difference between making an animal intentionally suffer and making an animal aware of your presence before you shoot, particularly with animals that are inclined to attack rather than run. It the shot is well placed and results in an instant kill I can not fault the...

    Hi, Foster, and welcome to AH. I think you will find a lot of knowledge on the site regarding your calibers. Don't tell me you live in Central Otago? By your description that could well be.

    Lt. Col. J.H. Patterson's "Man-Eaters of Tsavo"

    Good choice, Wheels. I think you will enjoy it - I still do. It is based on a British radio series and has 2 predecessors, "Plain Tales from the Raj" and "Tales from the Dark Continent". I love reading the very matter-of-fact statements everyday people made about their life in colonial days. I...

    I'm definitely not glorifying the British school system, but anything that still teaches young people to want responsibility can't be all bad.
