BOOM !!!!! (Dinner is done)



Three men who died after apparently igniting an explosive powder near northern Illinois’ Starved Rock State Park appeared to have been fishing along a river before the blast killed them, the coroner said.

LaSalle County Coroner Rich Ploch said the men were apparently relaxing while fishing along the Illinois River on Thursday evening before the “black powder substance” was ignited in a hole.

He said there was no device involved in the explosion, although black powder can be used to make fireworks.

Ploch theorized the men had either lit the powder for entertainment or, more likely, they were trying to light a fire to cook food that was found nearby.



Starved Rock is about 50 south west of where I live.

Going to be really interested in the results of the investigation.

I don’t suspect anything nefarious, but there seems to be a level of stupid that was epic.


Paraquat Is Back !!!!

What is Paraquat or Paraquat Dichloride?

Paraquat is one of the most widely used herbicides in the US for the control of weeds in many agricultural and non-agricultural settings and is also used as a defoliant on crops, such as cotton, prior to harvest. Paraquat is a safe and effective herbicide when used as directed on the label. However, for a number of reasons, suicide with agrochemicals is a tragic and regrettable social problem particularly in some less developed countries. Agrochemicals are also occasionally involved in cases of accidental ingestion, most often as a consequence of individuals breaching recommended practice by decanting product into unlabeled beverage bottles.​ Paraquat is the active ingredient of Gramoxone, which is used to control weeds and grasses and as a harvest aid desiccant and/or defoliant. It is a restricted-use pesticide due to acute toxicity and is for retail sale to and only for use by certified applicators. The product is toxic to humans as well as wildlife, is mildly corrosive to aluminum, and produces hydrogen gas which may form a highly combustible gas mixture in the presence of aluminum. It is commonly used as a burn down product, to control grass cover crops or volunteer cereals, and may provide control of perennial and annual broad-leaf weeds.


I can’t go 15 minutes watching television without seeing one of those shyster ambulance chasing commercials asking if you are a “victim” of Roundup.

Anyhoo, I saw the same type of commercial for “Paraquat.”

Paraquat Lawsuits

I thought, “WOW, I haven’t heard about Paraquat since the 1970’s when the USA was spaying it in drug fields in Mexico.”

Operation Clearview:

In 1975, as part of “Operation Clearview,” the Nixon Administration started supplying Mexico with about $15 million annually in aid that included helicopters designed to spray marijuana and poppy fields with herbicides.

Officials had recommended spraying marijuana fields with herbicides—their stated intent was to kill the drug at its source by spraying the fields. But in deeply impoverished Mexico, where in the 1970s harvesting marijuana could make the difference between a yearly income of $200 and one of $5,000, many growers simply harvested the poisoned marijuana and shipped it north anyway.

Not sure if you can be part of the lawsuit if you claim to have smoked tainted weed.

Tippmann M-4 Full Auto 22LR

Plinkster22 demos the  Tippmann M-4 Full Auto 22 LR.

“Giggle Switch” indeed !

My apologies for using a Screwutube link.  This post has been in my queue for quite sometime and before my promise of not using Screwutube videos.

I have never fired a full auto and there are several classic machine guns I would like to shoot just because !!

Personally, the full auto 22 looks like a blast to shoot, but at some point it would get to be just wasting ammo.

Black Judge on What to Do When Stopped By Police

This Judge was involved in a traffic stop recently

“I understand your fear, trust me. I get it,” said Lyke, who is Black. “However the United States Supreme Court as well as the Illinois Supreme Court have said if a police officer asks you to get out of the car — irrespective of if you think it’s right or wrong — YOU GOTTA GET OUT.”


Click Here to see how the Judge handled the situation……………..

My thought, if black leaders were serious about not having black people get shot by the police, they should be giving out the advice that the judge did EVERY FUCKING DAY to their people.
But we all know, destroying the legal system is part of the plan.
