Lotsa crazy shit going on at work, and I absolutely have to come in this weekend to fix it. The shitty part is that this means my reserve duty has to be recheduled, and that always makes me feel like a shitbag. Oh well, we do what we have to.

Just bought a new upper for my AR today. I snagged a Spike’s tactical Mid length which you can see by clicking here. Thanks to my buddy Brett for pointing it out, and if you use the coupon code “MIDLEUP” you will get 50$ off that. What a steal. I canceled my rock river order because those fucking assholes kept pushing it back – first it was up to 30 days, then 30-60, and then 60-90. Yeah, I’ll take my business elsewhere, thanks.

In other news, I am considered a trip to Russia sometime this summer. I really want to visit that country – as a child of the Cold War, I have always had an incredible fascination with it. I’m also learning the language, so it would be good. I’ll probably only go if Yuliya can come with me, but who knows how things will be then. I’m not a fatalist, but I prefer to plan for the worst.

Speaking of Russia, I have been on this nuclear disaster kick. First off, there is this awesome pictoral of Chernobyl and Pripyat, and a visit in 2010. Check it out over here. I was also reading wikipedia about Lake Karachay and the Mayak area of Russia, where a category 6 disaster occurred. Can you believe that they have concreted over the whole damn lake because of all the dumping that occurred there? That just blows my mind. What also gets me is the fact Russia still has closed towns! Places that foreigners and even members of their own country just are not allowed to visit. I MUST SEE THESE PLACES. I’m like the epitome of the human race – curiosity and a thirst to discover that which is unknown.

Anyways, I think I’ll follow this post up with a rant about the politics in the United States now. See? See conservatives? I just mention you peripherally and my blood already starts to boil. That and the tea party, you guys are idiots. Taxes the lowest they have been in 50 years and you retards still claim they are too high. Do you really stand behind people that thing the IRS and taxes should be abolished? Don’t you know that shit is necessary? Morons.
