Day By Day


  • Merle

    OHH OHH !!!!!!

  • WayneM

    Light’em up, Jo but save enough power to get your ass out to your Uber…

  • Too Tall

    Shock and Awe!

  • JTC

    Is it a coincidence that Freedom earned by fighting off the grasp of kings and those who would be, is celebrated with fireworks? I think not.

    • eon

      Prior to the American Revolution, fireworks were “the joy of royalty”, used to celebrate their birthdays, weddings, and ascensions to thrones. This custom came straight from China, where gunpowder and its uses were an Imperial monopoly.

      It took the Hussite Wars, the Thirty Years’ War, the English Civil War, and finally the American Revolution to make nobles and crowned rulers realize that “Gunpowder made all men tall”.

      Now you know why modern “progressives”, the spiritual heirs of those nobles and rulers, want you disarmed.

      Happy Independence Day.

        God did not make men equal.

        Sam Colt did.

        • JTC

          God created men equal but Sam kept them that way.

          As the esteemed (if non-existent) Major Caudill USMC (ret) so famously and eloquently didn’t say* in the essay “Why the Gun”…

          *immigrant former essayist now successful sci-fi writer M Kloos wrote that bit of brilliance but that didn’t seem patriotic and sexy enough, so the mythical Major is still quoted and given wide credit even these many years later…

          Can’t link it w/my phone, maybe someone else here will, or just look it up, you will be glad you did.

      • Ol' Country Boy

        I think y’all are grasping at straws and are practicing to be woke libruls. Without going deep into academics, don’t you think the fireworks have to do with “the rockets red glare,” and “the bombs bursting in air?” I’ve been around for eighty years and it has always been about the bombs bursting and the rockets. What happened? did all your school marms adopt the wokeness over the past 80 years?

        • eon

          The “rockets’ red glare” and “bombs bursting in air” Francis Scott Key referred to at Fort McHenry were all British. Courtesy of the Royal Navy’s bombardment.

          The fort’s defenders sensibly spent the night in their bombproofs (bunkers) playing cards and letting the Brits waste their ammunition. They didn’t bother even trying to return fire that night.

          The next morning, the British commander was rather embarrassed to see that their seven hours’ worth of fire mission not only hadn’t “reduced” the fort, it hadn’t even brought down its flag.



  • DogByte6RER

    They want it so bad and they’re gonna get it … get it good and hard!

    Kinda like that penultimate scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark …

  • Kafiroon

    I remember something like that!
    My long hair “partner” inserting an 8″ by 1/4″ Craftsman screwdriver to “help” into a ‘live’ box, while I was heading in a new line.
    He’s slapping his head, hollering if his hair was on fire.
    “I don’t know! I can’t see anything!” Took a few hrs. The screwdriver “lost” an inch and a half!

  • Punta Gorda

    Nothing like a high voltage arc to literally blind dark adapted eyes. Flash bangs have nothing on it.

    Not to mention the ionizing radiation possible when high energy electrons stike metal. Hint… it makes x rays.

    • Punta Gorda

      Years ago I was in the middle of doing a de-install on a piece of gear. All applicable tag-outs were made and double checked. What was not known was an illegal circuit module in another workspace that was back feeding live voltage into the line I was cutting. Blew the end off of my pliers.

      Had it not been for my paranoia and taking extra precautions it would have gotten me.

      • Punta Gorda

        (10 Kv gloves and muffs, plus face sheild)

        • Steve

          You pique my curiosity — whenever I need to do electrical work around the house, the last thing I do before I start messing with it is use a tester to make sure the line actually is dead. I have heard several tales like yours over the years, all of which seem like they could have been prevented by that simple expedient. Are there no testers for high voltage lines, then? (Genuinely curious, no disrespect intended.)

          • Kafiroon

            See Punta Gorda’s statement about illegal circuits. Especially when you search everywhere and Can Not find the source.
            Old Buildings and need for new circuits.
            I was fine. Young long hair was the problem.

          • MasterDiver

            I have a little “Magic Wand” that senses live wires by induction. Saved my ass when I went to work on a supposedly dead fixture where someone had wired it backwards, and the white wire was hot.

            Zar Belk!

    Happy 4th to one and all, except Democrats, who will un-celebrate this, their annual Day of Mourning, by cancelling the few remaining brain cells they have left with another strong dose of TDS. For me, I’ll be celebrating that the (D)-project is well on the way to being fully exposed as criminal – far-left fascism, in the President’s new spot-on description – and that none of their 2020 Decepticon tricks, from Shampeachment to Covid Apocalypse to Race Riots Forever, have been able to make the slightest dent in the #MAGA coalition (which, despite Enemedia lies, is silently growing with #WalkAway and #Blexit). Happy 4th!

    Jo would be the ultimate Secret Service agent…

    • Blasternaz

      Well said! May I quote you, with or without attribution, your choice? Thanks!

  • Punta Gorda

    Ref Jo above… pretty sure the screaming meanies lost some facial hair due to the intensity and proximity to the full on >>ZORCH<<.

    • Punta Gorda

      P= I x E.

      Power equals current times voltage.

  • Punta Gorda

    Fun with math… general dielectric breakdown voltage for air is given as about 30 kV/cm.

    Average female height is about 5’6″ (actually 5’4″). Or a around 167 cm. Drawing an arc of that length requires a bit over 5 million volts. Probably starting with less since she initiated it with her hands close together. But in a NUTshell… don’t get fking close to her. Absolute lowest human resistance is about 300 ohms (sweltering Texas night covered with sweat, easy to do) that’s why anything over 30 volts can be lethal. 0.1 amps across the chest cavity can cause cardiac arrest.

  • Punta Gorda

    Easy 16,674 amps if she puts that arc on you if your hot and sweaty… at about 84 GW. A human carcass would just explode with that amount of power.

    What’s Jo sporting? A reactor?

    • PaulS

      I’d say a PAIR of reactors! 😉

  • PaulS

    GO ………. JO!!!!!!!

  • Bill G

    As we celebrate Independence Day, let us give a smidgen of pity for the leftists who are celebrating Dependence Day. Pity the followers who go to their knees and pray to their All-Powerful Government for a few more crumbs, and the restoration of a few of the privileges their elites have been enjoying all along.

  • Punta Gorda

    Ref my statement. I used to teach this shit.

    • Punta Gorda

      NEC 9502.

      Never made master training specialist since I couldn’t run fast enough.
      Long story. I blame Marlborough.

      • Punta Gorda

        But I was CDP manager for 305. Electronics Technology.

      • Punta Gorda

        The fun bit was watching my predecessor teaching that an “ideal” 9 volt battery had the power of a nuclear bomb in a near dead short condition.

        • Punta Gorda

          Spoiler alert. In reality the battery self destructs long before you approach fission levels of power.

  • Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman

    Manfred Mann said it very well,
    “Blinded by the light……”

    Happy Independence Day.
    (just don’t burn down anything. we’ve already had one field fire in Utah due to a teen setting off fireworks early in a restricted area)

    • Doggo

      Actually, Springsteen wrote it before he got “woke”.

  • I hope they don’t set a Wendy’s on Fire.

  • Hotrod Lincoln

    Give ’em a real taste of “girl power”- – – – -one hand on the collarbone and the other with a firm grab to the groin area!

  • Pamela

    I wonder if Jo ever has sex if that amount of energy would be expended when the orgasm hits…

    • Steveb919

      Very good question.

    • JTC

      Let’s remember where that energy came from.

      Their own former lifeforce, having been sacrificed in service to their antigods, is absorbed by a manifestation of one of them, then concentrated and explosively redirected, betraying their devotion to put them -and us- out of their misery. Boom!

      CRANK IT UP!

      It’s the only just and poetic use of the human waste, and I really like the method; how much lightning can be sucked up and turned against a whole pantifa mob? BoomBoomBoom!!! Keep it up Jo!

  • This was what I wanted to see! Well done, Mr Muir!!!!!

  • John M.

    …as I said in the previous day’s ‘toon: “Power to the People” the way an Electric Eel gives “Power to the fish!”

  • I’m looking forward to seeing the charred bodies tomorrow. Hey, they started this.

  • JTC

    Problem is, real-world spooks here in the streets don’t conveniently lend themselves to being zapped by avatars, but more like the mob that busted into the swank gated neighborhood the other dsy, whereupon a liberal white lady whips it out and does the most cartoonish bunch of pistol coon-fingering you’ll ever see…and she and her EBR-sweeping hubby get arrested . So crazy I can’t even, but yeah unfortunately that’s the reality. Back to Jo though, the more I consider the concept of sucking the horrid life force out of wholesale thug lots to be concentrated into their very removal, the more I love it…

    • interventor

      The couple have hired a private security service. Don’t believe they’ve been arrested. Local prosecutor is investigating them. She’s left wing and, reportedly, received about $30,000 from a Soros fund.

      • Mike-SMO

        Damn! Where’d Jo learn that move? She (mine) got me every time. I still have permanent retinal burns. Lovely.

  • Punta Gorda


    Note. In response to the monument attackers. Trump signed an executive order making a new park with 30 statues.

  • Punta Gorda

    Anyone touching Jo in that state would just be a grease spot on the floor afterwards.

    • Punta Gorda

      Saw one of those in Trieste where guy tangled with a 440 VAC panel in the container cargo yard.

      • Chris Muir

        Punta Gorda-good stuff, but throttle back some! 🙂
