EDIT: I swapped the lower picture to one that shows the pattern better.
HUGE Dragonfly on my patio ceiling the other night…
Check out that camo pattern!
I’m going to try to make a T-shirt.
I got a shotgun, rifle, and a 4-wheel drive…

The U.S. Forest Service announced this morning an emergency closure of the Rampart Range shooting range, where a man died in a shooting accident on Saturday. There is no decision on when the range will reopen.
The Forest Service plans to barricade access to the range with concrete and barbed wire.

Otis Freison of Aurora was killed Saturday. Authorities say Freison was shot in the chest while shooting with friends at the Rampart Range Road shooting area, which is on U.S. Forest Service land. The range is in the Pike National Forest, near the Garden of the Gods park.
I mentioned this range in this post.
“Someone didn’t clear their weapon properly,” El Paso County Sheriff Lt. Lari Sevene told The Denver Post.
Someone didn’t do a lot of things properly.
A National Rifle Association-sponsored shooting range adviser inspected the trash-strewn site in April 2007, according to a decision memo on the Forest Service Web site.
The adviser “recommended that supervision on site was needed immediately,” the memo said.
In 2006, an article in The (Colorado Springs) Gazette described the range as chaotic and full of trash, from beer cans to computer monitors and refrigerators.
I haven’t been to this range in over 10 years. It was a scary place then. I can only imagine what it’s like now.

Driving to work this morning, I get cut off by some idiot in a Subaru. Not a soul behind us as far as the eye can see… you know the scenario. When he gets in front of me I notice the ‘Coexist’ bumper sticker.
Apparently he thinks I should be the one to make way and ‘coexist’ with him, rather than he ‘coexist’ with the rest of the fucking world.
