Default Someone stole my timing gun...

Stupid thing happened... I keep my Miata unlocked and with top down at my apartment's garage. Everything exposed pretty much... But some ****** stole my timing gun! Nothing gone from Miata, just missing freaking timing gun... How stupid is that? It's not like they need to check their timing every day... ****... Could have just asked to borrow it :/

I played back in highschool. My rifle coach liked to think he could beat us all. We'd go to this arena, it was built for three teams, there was a big robot that would destroy you with this automatic multishot gattling gun. It was fun, only did it like twice a year. He never did do very good, but then again he was a little under 60 years old as well so it's understandable.

Which brings to mind, how would you go about powering and triggering a timing light without carrying around a car battery and an engine around in your pocket?

They watched Futureweapons and thought it was an active denial system. Right now they're hooking it up to 9 volt batteries and pointing it at eachother.

We played TAG (The Assassination Game) in High School using rubber dart guns (the kind with suction cups on them).

Crack head probably thought it was a glock. Jokes on him when he tried to rob a liquor store.

In a local newspaper when John Edwards was asked of the elderly,he said that "the elderly need their own constitution, to be able to select their own Medicare and health benefits.." while Stephen Colbert said "They remind me of lizards.." he's getting my vote Stephen Colbert also says that John Edwards isn't South Carolina's favorite son because he moved when he was one, and that blaming it on his parents is the easy way out.
