The movie looks corny as expected. I’ll probably see it some day, but not in the theater.
Now onto the pics:

Since there is going to be at least one more season of the reality TV series Top Shot on the History Channel, I have decided I will award this illustrious title once per season:
The Top Douchebag award is basically for displaying excellence in the field of douchebaggery. Some may say that I jumped the gun on this award seeing as Top Shot is only 5 episodes in…. well to that I say “My award my rules”. If you have seen episode 5 you’ll probably agree that Adam set the douchebag bar pretty high. If someone steps their game up and out douches him I wouldn’t hesitate revoke Adam’s title and give it to a more deserving contestant.
If you didn’t already dislike Adam Benson enough, he is quoted saying “I am the last great American Hero” not only in his Biography on the Top Shot website, but those exact words also come straight from the douches mouth in the original promo video.
According to China’s People’s Daily Online, the Taliban have taught monkeys to recognize U.S. Military uniforms and shoot at the soldiers using AK-47s, Bren machine guns, and mortars.

Ugh, lets hope there are no splinter cells here at zoos in the United States.
On the plus side, i’m pretty confident a monkey wouldn’t have very advanced military tactics, and could easily be taken out with a .22 LR or enticed to stop shooting with some more food.
Thanks to this story, I will no longer associate monkeys and AKs with this cute picture.

Looks like it would be a stressful job. It’s probably a bad thing that there would be a lot of down time where nothing happens… it wouldn’t be the type of job to get lazy on.
Note: The red tipped bullets you see every 5th round in the picture are Armor Piercing Incendiary Tracers (M20).
Oakland, CA - The City Council voted June 25 to eliminate 80 police officer positions to help close the city’s $32.5 million funding gap.
Police chief Anthony Batts listed exactly 44 situation that his officers will no longer respond to. He says if you live and Oakland and one of the listed crimes happens to you, you need to let police know on-line.
Full story – HERE and HERE
Here is a partial list:
false information to peace officer
required to register as sex or arson offender
dump waste or offensive matter
discard appliance with lock
possess forged notes
pass fictitious check
obtain money by false voucher
fraudulent use of access cards
stolen license plate
embezzlement by an employee (over $ 400)
false personification of other
injure telephone/ power line
interfere with power line
unauthorized cable tv connection
administer/expose poison to another’s
Heh… report the crimes online hey? Then what… some sort of independently contracted investigation unit that works for free will respond and crack the case? Looks like this “online” reporting method is just their not so subtle way of sweeping the listed crimes under the rug.
I’m not sure what they are NOT cutting out of the Oakland budget, but in a city that is always ranked high in mast categories of crime… cutting money to the police is just a bad idea.
Looks like it will be a free-for-all in Oakland.
I hope at least a few of the 80 that were laid off, were the bozos involved in the shooting of the deer back in May.
P.S. What is Grand theft dog? Theft of a really expensive dog?
