Overnight Open Thread

Welcome to tonight's semi-half-assed hump day ONT.

50 Things Every Guy Should Know How To Do

Okay this list isn't inclusive and I'd quibble with some of the choices. But at least 40 of these are solid ought-to-knows. So if you're over 30 and can't easily check off 35+ of these - well maybe it's time to start filling in those knowledge gaps before you get busted and face a Man card check.

50. Change a tire
49. Use a charcoal grill
48. Bong a beer
47. Throw a punch without looking like a sissy
46. Fry a turkey
45. Hook up the cable
And thanks to Wikipedia and YouTube no one need ever find out about your secret shame.

Luckily for me even an effete, RINO, book-learning nancy-boy like myself could still pick up most of these skills by osmosis just by growing up in the South during the 70's and 80's.

So Why Isn't Populism More Popular?
Hatred-of-the-rich-based populism has never been very popular in the US to the dismay of Socialists/Communists/Democrats. Mainly because most working- and middle-class Americans simply don't care about economic inequality - they're more concerned with how their own lives are going. And plus they hope to be rich themselves one day.

Dalton Conley, a New York University social scientist, argued that economic inequality is "epiphenomenal," a "luxury" people worry about in the absence of more pressing matters. He cited one study showing that "while for Europeans, inequality truly makes them less happy, in the United States, only the moods of rich leftists are adversely affected."

Or at least weren't born in the US. And who knows how well they shower.


How Not to Be a Firearms Instructor
Via Confederate Yankee comes these videos of a shooting instructor who recently applied to teach at Front Sight. He's clearly very skilled but watch the last video here and you'll see why they didn't hire him.
