    Looks like a double snouted nail gun. A thing designed to do several things generally does none well, and most poorly.

    I do know they make the best AR-15/M-16 type assault rifle, the C7. I would love to own one of those, but that's never going to happen.

    Oh and don't forget back bacon.

    1 English bacon. Taken from the loin, with lean surrounded by a ring of fat. Cured and/or smoked.
    2 Canadian bacon. Precooked, very lean, cured and lightly smoked, and cut from the loin. (Known as "back bacon" in Canada.)
    3 Country bacon. Often heavily smoked, salty, and thickly sliced.
    4 Standard bacon. Sliced and packaged, usually with the rind trimmed.
    5 Pancetta. Italian bacon from the belly that is seasoned, dry-aged, and cured - not smoked.
    6 Slab bacon. Pork belly with fat, lean, and rind, that has been cured and/or smoked, but not sliced.

    No.1 is proper bacon.

    The rest is just foreign muck. :wink:

    And what of gammon?

    The way we colonists break our pork the bacon,you so enjoy, would cut into the spareribs, and leave the back ribs extra long. The tails of the loin on your proper bacon is the flat cut side of good ole belly bacon. Here that means money left on the loin to be trimmed off and ground into sausage, when it could be made into bacon at a higher margin Not saying your way is wrong I just didn't see very many rib joints when I was over there.

    I have just about decided shoulder bacon, or Arkansas bacon, is my favorite. Bacon flavor, ham texture. Canadian bacon is ok, as a way to get a fourth kind of pork, on pizza but that is pretty much it.
    I am afraid we forget sometime that the basic and simple things brings us the most pleasure.

    Make jokes of our Northern Neighbors if you must, but don't sell 'em short. They'll surprise you. I've been there-done that and they aren't exactly stupid.

    Though the average Canadian seems more Anal than the Brits (Brits seem uptight but when you catch em in the partying mood, they can be a trip). The truth of the matter is that us U.S. Guys are the most laid back in all the world (in that we don't sweat the small stuff) and sometimes we tend to question their overthinking of things or their uptightness. But I've found it best to just stand back and get a cup of coffee and let them proceed.

    One example, at work in the chemical plant, we had lots of analyzers in our units. We had to analize everything from the Cycle Gas to the Recovery vents for everything from Oxygen to aldehydes and a thousand things in between. We had a building called the Analyser Building. We did NOT work on analyzers. we only used them. But we needed to know how to do a certain amount of trouble shooting if we had trouble so we could direct the night and weekend call out maintenance people who may not be familiar with our particular unit.

    In Kuwait one Canadian working with us said he spent 6 hours in the analyser building tracing out everything. Now that is overkill to the max. It would seem that we as operators (Did you get that Buffy?)wouldn't need to know every line and valve and every solenoid in that building and it takes about 30 minutes to trace out all the valving we needed to know about. But spending 6 hours in there? That is not just overkill, that is ANAL overkill, hehehehe. But you know what? I always felt good when that guy was around because he could answer any question.

    That's an example of them. But they are good people and good to have on our team. Canadians are some of the least lazy people I know. Like I said, they are anal and overkill, but anything one of them does usually has some positive effect. So whatever weapon they develop might turn out useful in some form, even though while in the process they drive Americans BAT CRAP Crazy,
