“May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.”


"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

Size matters

So I had to turn the Big Truck in for some maintenance issues and an inspection today, necessitating the transfer of assorted bits of gear, weapons, explosives etc into a loaner vehicle for an indeterminate period.

Which led to tonight's observation - if a mere 2/3 of your gear fills up a Ford Expedition to overflowing, and if said vehicle feels like you're suddenly driving something much smaller & nimbler, then apparently you use way too many tools as a part of your daily job...

Did your gear spilling out of the cars cue that crazy clown song?

I don't wanna imagine the amount of stuff you normally carry with you.
