Fiction is not keeping up with reality

In this case, you’d use the rifle to hold out till you can draw the pistol.

Substance and style

I think the appeal of lever actions is similar to the appeal of Steampunk and Victorian/Edwardian styles — functional enough to be useful, and intricate enough to be interesting. This one is a Henry carbine with really nice wood and … Continue reading

Do you know how much water each toilet used per flush before 1994? Just enough to make them function reliably. Toilet, like other appliances, were designed by people who understand how such things work. Since 1994, US toilets were restricted … Continue reading
