Our mountains are very pointy
Our prairies are not
The rest is kinda bumpy
But man do we have a lot

Scott Murray's kick on Ian Gough has resulted in a three week ban. That's the very bottom end of the IRB recommended tariff for the offence (21-182 days) which seems reasonably fair. Emotionally, I can see a case for letting him off but realistically we all know what that would have meant. Every SANZAR thug from now to eternity would have got off because he was a "good bloke". The Kiwis and Jaapies already rip the arse out of the disciplinary system where their own favoured sons are concerned. Best not to give them any more excuses.

Various technical discussions about Cheney's lawyer hunting habits ended up with me, uncharacteristically, parked at a web site that sold ammunition. This caused me to wonder just what one could buy with out undue difficulty via the 'net.

The first thing that popped up was a US government program for selling M1 Garand rifles. They seem to have a lot of these but still feel the need to restrict sales to eight per year to any given customer.

Finding it easy to buy M14s, M16s (some still with burst capability), AK47s, Uzis and all manner of other personal weapons I got a bit more ambitious. Surprisingly, the US doesn't seem to be a great place to buy heavy weapons but there are several dealers in the UK with an impressive array of potential giftware. I was particularly drawn to the chap who had three T72s for sale. Sometimes it seems like everyone has a Hummer these days and a T72 is just what one needs to maintain cutting edge suburban soccer mom status.
