Wednesday's Digressions


  • I have no idea what Harley Davidson and the Marlboro man is about- as in if my life depended on it- I could not give you a hint of what it is about or who starred in it.
  • On reflection I think Peter Fonda is in Harley Davidson and the Marlboro man but I could be making that up.
    Are you the vine reaching for the light or the one strangling the life out of that one? I figure I am the raccoon poop on the ground just out of frame.
  • There is an online company that advertises a ridiculously cheap loss leader every time I see one of their ads. I have scored a couple of times on their site and used to check back periodically but for the life of me cannot recall their name- something Tactical and they are based in California?
  • A 39 dollar backpack from them that listed other places for 89 to 129 dollars fell victim to my shopping prowess but I don't recall the other product.
  • This morning I saw an ad for a company that specializes in jackets based on movies. The Star lord one looked cool but I am too old for that stuff.
  • Yes Idiocracy- you can be too old or too young for things.
    Kind of a cool idea but the problem has long been the yield sign in the opposing lane. You just do not go through that intersection that you stop and then proceed through that some jack wagon does not blow through their yield and then honk and flip you off.
  • To be filed under none of my business but if I saw it others surely see it also: while having lunch with a buddy a person he worked with before in another place stopped by the table. Said previous co worker was as high as a kite. Said previous co worker is also a practicing nurse.
  • Fascinating drone footage of suicide car bombs in iraq.

You're not thinking of 5.11 Tactical, are you? I've never seen their online ads, but I got one of their shirts for cheap at the resale shop recently. It has cool pockets where one could, hypothetically, cache a small-frame 9mm pistola, for those into that sorta stuff.

Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man not a bad movie. Mickey Rourke and Don Johnson. It has its moments.

Hey Don- No, not 511. I do like their stuff though. It may start with a V?. I have my eyes open for a receipt which I am sure I still have in the detritus of my life somewhere. Those loss leaders are so awesome I honestly meant to link to their site. Every category had one or two deals.
Intersting you mention the thrift store deal I once saw a whole pack of Magellan shirts like new at one for 3 dollars a piece- predictably 3 sizes too big...
Hey anon. Thanks it is on my list as although it did not interest me much multiple people have recommended it.
