John W in SC replied to the thread One down, one to go..
" Both at once? Yikes! No personal experience, but I'm at an age where several friends have new knees. (Spoke with one at the gym this afternoon.) They all say rehab really helped.

I hope you have someone who can help with chores like fetching bourbon and addressing Christmas cards.

" At risk of preaching to the choir, those who risk (or have risked) their butts for the US of A (as well as their families) deserve the best we can do for them in return, not the least we can get away with doing.

John W in SC created the thread Shoot Them In The Leg?.
" I'm starting this as a new thread, rather than hijacking the topic as a spinoff from "My own story with Self Defense" at https://www.personaldefenseforum.net...419#post323419.

Lets start with a most basic question: Why would we shoot someone, anyone? The simplest answer is, to stop them from doing something. There is more to it than that, such as the "something" we want to stop them from doing must meet certain legal requirements for self defense. But please stay with me on this.

The next question is, when do we want them to stop? The obvious answer is "right away".

Our objective is to stop the threat, not to kill. A shot to the leg that severs the femoral artery may cause the person to die by exsanguination after several minutes, but it won't keep them from pulling triggers (or setting off vests) while we wait. A shot between the nipples and the thorax that takes out the heart and lungs may cause them to die in five to thirty seconds, but won'e keep them from doing things in the meantime. If that shot also severs the spinal cord they will loose control below the sever and fall to the ground, but they may still have use of arms, hands and trigger fingers.

To truly stop a person right now, we must disconnect the brain from the rest of the body. This can be done at the brain stem, but it isn't easy.

Do we practice brain stem shots? Should we?

Use a piece of masking tape 1" wide by 2" long to represent the nose from bridge to tip as a target. At what distance can you hit it reliably? What if the tape is moving around?

I'm leaving out a lot of details here, but you get the idea.

John W in SC created the thread Clintons On Vacation.
" Last week Bill and Hillary Clinton were vacationing in their home state of Arkansas. One day they stopped at a service station to fill up the car with gas. It seemed that the owner of the station was once Hillary's high school love.

They exchanged hellos, and went on their way.

As they were driving on to their destination, Bill put his arm around Hillary and said, "Well, honey, if you had stayed with him, you would have been the wife of a service station owner today."

She smiled and replied, "No, if I had stayed with him, he would have been President of the United States."

John W in SC created the thread Learn Another Language?.
" My wife and I were in town last week when three guys approached us. "Habla espanol?" asked the first. I just shook my head.

"Sprechen ze Deutch?" asked the second. I shook my head again.

Parle vous Franches?" asked the third.

"English. ENGLISH!!!" I told them. They walked away and didn't bother us no more.

"Maybe we should learn another language" my wife suggested.

"What for?" I asked her. "Them fellers knowed three languages, and it didn't do them no good".

John W in SC created the thread Got Lost In The Woods!.
" Last week I took my wife for a hike in the woods to teach her the skills she would need if civilization ends and we had to leave our home without any survival equipment. Things didn't go as I'd hoped, and I had to admit I'd gotten us really, really lost. I did remember that the trail we came in on was sort of south, but there was no moss on the trees and it was an overcast day, so those methods didn't work. After wandering aimlessly for over an hour, I spotted an old log cabin in the distance. I studied the cabin carefully, then announced “we go this way”. Within minutes we were back on the trail and on our way home.

My wife was duly impressed! “How did you know which way to go?” she asked.

“Easy” I told her. “I just looked at the old cabin. In this part of the country satellite dishes point south.”

Bada Bing!
