On a more festive note, Mikhail Kalashnikov, the inventor of the AK-47 assault (hunting to some) rifle died Monday. You can click on the photo to enlarge, but if you don’t feel so inclined, it says it is the most “popular” firearm in the world. There are approx. 100,000,000 of them around. He also says he doesn’t have any sleep issues because of his invention. Strange, it would bug the shit out of me.
