Always Testing

h/t Daily Timewaster

























Of course, the hardest part is loading the frozen moose into the launching cannon for the tests.

May I suggest a trebuchet?

Oh man, that brings back memories. I've seen plenty of these types of run-ins when I lived up theya.
And when you kneecap a moose at 60 miles an hour, the safety cage isn't going to do shit. You're better off driving off the road to avoid it and hitting a tree.

Revjen has a good observation, it's Maine, some people there choose to practice medieval stuff.

Saw a few of those in Alaska, also.

Hitting a moose is now the smallest problem that Maine has. It is now fully Demunist, and while their productive worker population dies off (they have a negative reproductive curve), the Somali's and indigenous dirtbag population increases.

Death spiral.

Somalis?

freaking invaders are everywhere.

blame the NGOs for bringing them here, blame .gov for permitting it, blame the people for allowing it.

populations double, and then your are truly F'd.

Writing from a neighboring state yes, Maine does have Somalis. They were brought to the state in the 1990s by a Democrat governor and settled in in declining mill towns like Lewiston. The usual Christian & Jewish "charities" got fat fees for settling the invaders all the while telling the locals that the invaders would "rejuvenate" their declining towns.

The usual pattern prevailed with the Somalis going on welfare, committing crimes and being protected by the state and federal governments. Whites whose ancestors have been in Maine since the early 17th century were prosecuted for protesting their displacement. That got Gov. LePage (R) elected with a conservative agenda.

There are many people in Maine from places like NYC who believe money grows on trees and "diversity is our greatest strength". They are trying to recreate the shitholes they left when they come to Maine. They congregate around Portland in southern Maine and lack any outdoor skills such as hunting and fishing and have never been in the woods of which Maine has many, many square miles.

When this country suffers a national disruption of food distribution, electricity etc. the snowflakes are in for many bad surprises. People in the smaller, isolated towns are self reliant and well armed. They are unlikely to give a friendly reception to SJWs demanding to be provided for.

The Somalis will be even worse off. They have made nothing but enemies in Maine. They are %100 dependent upon welfare and crime and it gets very cold in the winter especially if the electricity fails. The locals are sick of them will take no shit from them once the government is no longer around to protect and provide for them.

Moose vs. ANY vehicle is a losing proposition for the vehicle (unless it's a Caterpillar)...

Moose are REALLY hard to see in winter up here, darkness and all. Most rigs, mine included, have LEDs that operate when you use your brights.

My uncle hit a cow on a rural highway once; messed him up real good, and didn't do his motorcycle much good, either.

The Moose, perfectly designed by God Almighty to stand at the perfect height to deliver it's mass directly into the passenger compartment of your car. Yield to moose.

Anon @4:44 lays it out well. But for more info look up Lewiston-Auburn on Wikipedia. L-A went in one decade from about 1% black/African to about 10%, and it ain't American blacks moving up from say Mississippi.

I head on up to Lewiston at least yearly to see how things are progressing, if that's the word. Generally depressed economically, and the vaunted "new Somali businesses" are snack/halal food shops, not serious economy boosting businesses. Driving around downtown areas one sees knots of Somalis (men and women) standing on street corners, and bunches of 3-5 young Somali males dashing between parked cars for whatever reason. An American black teenager standing (apparently) alone in the park, practically flashing "drug dealer" in neon, and one young white woman, who, smiling and waving, tried to get me to pick her up; probably prostituting herself for drug money.

Anon is doubtless correct about Christian and Jewish groups being most responsible, but I know that Muslim organizations (yes, there are Muslims in Maine) are involved. I've met some of those involved. The ironic thing is that they live in a nice neighborhood near Portland and personally want nothing to do with the Somalis, despite bringing them in. Actual quote: "I want to live in a wealthy, mostly white area."

re. Mike_C: "Actual quote: "I want to live in a wealthy, mostly white area."

That sentiment is almost entirely global in its embrace.
