Southwestern Pa is infested with Osage orange. The thorns are like halberds.

I've cut down 2 or 3 of those fuckers this fall. Gonna cut down a couple more in the Spring.

Worthless fuckin' things.

Peeps around here call it a bodark or bodock tree.

The thorns on it causes me to call them every curse word in my repertoire when I mow near them.

Almost as bad as a black thorn. Almost...

I take it you found that close to an area where military ceremonies are held?

It's a blank... likely .30-06.
Nope. West Germin hybrid plastic body metal headed 7.62x51 NATO

I bought 10,000 rounds when it was $30 per 1000 hoping to get one of my belt fed 308’s to run it but the powder charges are inconsistent -when you set it up to run the standard round you’ll get a low pressure round and it stop cycling.

We use it now in the M1a to launch shit off the muzzle like golf balls and shit like that

Hedgeapple also known as Osage Orange. Very tough wood. People used to plant them to use the trunks as fence posts.

Saw that on tv a couple of nights ago.

Doesn't help that the shelves were loaded with what looked like a liquid that was over weight.

My iMac finally had to be replaced this year (or was it last year), I bought it in 2009, so I got seven or eight years out of it. The computer part still worked, but the screen was going. It got one vertical line in it aboot a month after the warranty expired. Then a few years later the screen would darken, flicker and stuff. I still have it and could maybe get a new display.

Finding a used video card is the tough part. They are expensive and rare.
