I found a shirt with grizzly bears playing Guitar Hero. I do not believe there is anything else cooler on Earth, including if Hank Sr came back to life and recorded a duet with Kanye West about letting Taylor "finish."

A new Benchmade 14800 "Tumult" OTF pocket knife.

Autos are legal for civilian possession in Oregon? Now that's a progressive state!

Autos are legal for civilian possession in Oregon? Now that's a progressive state!

They have been as long as I can recall (they're made here in Oregon). This is my 7th auto and 3rd OTF. All Benchmade. I have two Infidels as well.

They're legal to carry, too, as long as they're not concealed, which according to multiple law enforcement people I have asked means having the pocket/belt clip showing on the outside of your pocket or clothes.

Sometimes I really get tired of living in the Peoples Republik of Kalifornia.....:(

Hey, that's what we call the City of Portland here! The People's Republic of Portland.

Being able to own and carry automatic knives is a nice fringe benefit in light of how left leaning this city and state can be.

Believe it or not, I walked into a Sears after a dentist appointment (about a minute after getting off the phone with Tycho) and found... Scramble on Yavin!! Knowing how insanely HTF it is, I didn't look at the paint (which had made me pass on the one I saw months ago).
