On The Other Hand

Kim du Toit put together what he called a "just suppose" game. Just suppose you could have only one each from now on, a rifle, a pistol, and a vehicle, to meet all your future needs. The tabulated results were interesting but not surprising; the man has a fairly practical readership.

I'd like to come at this from another angle. Just suppose you could have one each, a rifle, a pistol, and a vehicle, for the rest of the summer, in addition to what you already have. They don't have to be as impractical as the examples I linked. My choices wouldn't be. But the question is just for fun, and the selections should be too.

As per Kim's game, answers should be emailed to me, so that everyone has to think for themselves. entry is closed when I read my mail the morning of Saturday the 29th, and results should be posted sometime the 31st.

Sadly I don't know enough about rifles or pistols to even begin to pick one - practical or impractical - LOL. A just for fun car for the summer - that's almost as bad since there are so many good ones to choose from!!! Maybe an old James Bond Astin Martin (sorry if I spelled it wrong). Hmmm...

Hmm, just for the rest of the summer and then you have to give it up...

Rifle: 10 pounder Parrot Rifle

Handgun: S&W 500 Magnum

Vehicle: Silver Eagle RV conversion with all the bells and whistles (with a trailer for the Parrot Rifle, of course)

I'd love to play with all of these but not sure I'd want to keep them...

So - how's the response been?

The CIA had an opening for an assassin. After all of the background checks, interviews, and testing were done there were three finalists - two men and one woman. For the final test, the CIA agents took one of the men to a large metal door and handed him a gun.

"We must know that you will follow your instructions, no matter what the circumstances. Inside this room you will find your wife sitting in a chair. You have to kill her." The first man said. "You cant be serious. I could never shoot my wife!"The agent replies, "Then you?re not the right man for this job."

The second man was given the same instructions. He took the gun and went into the room. All was quiet for about five minutes. Then the agent came out with tears in his eyes. "I tried, but I cant kill my wife." The agent replies, "You dont have what it takes. Take your wife and go home."

Finally, it was the womans turn. Only she was told to kill her husband. She took the gun and went into the room. Shots were heard, one shot after another. They heard screaming, crashing, banging on the walls. After a few minutes, all was quiet. The door opened slowly and there stood the woman. She wiped the sweat from her brow and said, "You guys didnt tell me the gun was loaded with blanks. So I had to beat him to death with the chair."
