The governor's office calls it a random coincidence. With awkward wording in a generic note not mentioning the topic of the bill he was vetoing?
Whoever gave that explanation is a girly man. Man up Arnold. Take responsibility for your humor.
basically a 'show and tell' custom built on a Thompson fancy version of the
Thompson Contender). The Caliber....600 Nitro Express.
That's right...an elephant gun round in a handgun. The story goes that the
guy that built it is some kind of custom gun maker, and built this as an
exhibition piece. He takes it to the range with him just to show it off, and
the big guy that shot it (in the video) had been bugging the builder to let
him shoot it.
Only until fairly recently (early-mid '80's IIRC) the 600 Nitro Express was
hands down the biggest, nastiest, hardest hitting, and heaviest recoiling
weapon you could buy.
It was designed for one simple purpose...to knock an elephant flat on his
butt...., it was really built as an exhibition piece for guys 'compensating'
This cartridge is known for breaking collarbones, arms, shoulders....of the
In the gun world they use what is termed a 'recoil index' to kind of give
prospective buyers an idea of what a gun kicks like.. A 30-06 gets a rating
of a 1.0, which for many people is about the limit of what they can shoot
multiple rounds comfortably.
A 243 BR is rated at like a 0.4, a 270 was like a 0.8, etc. The 600 Nitro
Express is rated at a 9.4.......9.4 times more punishing power than a 30-06.
Now watch the video

Levels of bacteria rise significantly in ocean waters during and after rainstorms. Elevated levels of bacteria may continue for a period of up to 7 days depending upon the intensity of the rain and the volume of runoff. Elevated bacteria levels in ocean water may cause someone to become ill or die. It is recommended that beach users avoid contact with ocean water for a period of 7 days after rainfall ends.

As plainly seen in this picture I shot this morning, construction on the new watermain is going full blast. Remember, no RV's until work is complete, estimated at 90 days. No lining-up before 5:45 or the rangers will run you out or worse ticket you.
Parking is tight due to all the equipment. It is still advised to journey to Trails or Doheny during this period.

Exclusive San-O Daze video of the aftermath of the line cutting incident. Witnesses reported that a late model Escalade with 6 Soft Tops on the roof decided that he was too important to wait in line with everyone else and made an attempt to cut the line as it began to move at 6AM this morning. Several shots were fired hitting at least one subject, presumably the Escalade driver. Edison Security and Park Rangers immediatley cordoned off the area resulting in a massive traffic jam and forcing the closure of the beach. No arrests have been made, but a person of interest has been held for questioning.

After 35 years in South Orange County I have relocated to North County San Diego.
All of that time was spent in the trades. I have recently closed the books on my Contracting Company to take on a new adventure.
After nearly a year of grooming my resume I have achieved my goal. I am going to climb aboard the money train, that's correct I will be employed by the U.S. Government on Camp Pendleton.
I will start my new job early in November. The attached photo is the new digs, yes I am trailer trash.

Starting Monday, Oct. 5, 2009, RV's will not be allowed in the park. Sorry Shotzy, it's only a temporary thing while construction goes on. That is supposed to take about 90 days. The construction equipment and staging area will take up approximately 100 of the parking spaces now allocated. Only 200 cars will be allowed in the park at a time, then the turn-around will begin.
Since things will be a bit tight at San-O, the rangers will be policing the line in the morning. Nobody will be allowed to line-up until 5:45. Once again, RV's will be turned away as there will not be adequate space for them.
The upside to all this is a nice new water supply that should last for a very long time. Maybe they will put hot and cold water!
Our advice is to look up Murphy down at trails or maybe try Doheny until construction is completed. Can you imagine what that turn-around will be like?
