I originally posted this on the Bizmark thread but expanded it here...

An expanded history of the development of the 10mm.

Many believe the 10mm was developed in the 80s, however it is much, much older. Development began in the BC era. The first prototype was used by a skinny kid named David to kill a giant. However, after this happened the prototype was lost – many thought forever.

The 10mm next appeared in post-civil war America. A talented and morally flexible archaeologist named Montana Smith (originally from Idaho) found the design on a stone carving in a cave in northern Egypt. Not realizing exactly what he had found but knowing enough to realize it could be a very powerful weapon he delivered it to an agent with the United States. This agent delivered it to researchers who began to develop a prototype. The first sample was delivered to the US Army in 1871 for testing at a top-secret testing facility in Chicago, Illinois, but there was a problem. The first round fired went through the target, the backstop, three cars, a (thankfully empty) schoolbus, three telephone poles, and eventually wound up knocking over a lantern in a barn, which was unfortunately close to the downtown area and led to a devastating fire. At this point testing ceased for years.

The project was re-visited in 1912. While the new .45 ACP was proving itself a fine weapon, the Army wanted a new weapon for a special top-secret unit nicknamed The Bearded Avengers. Several prototypes were developed and tested in a new firing range in Nevada. The first shots were fired on February 14, 1913 at Testing Bay 51 by the unit’s captain, known only as “Chuck”. The first round not only destroyed the paper target but the recoil was so great that “Chuck” actually dropped the weapon.

The development was not unnoticed by foreign powers. The Germans especially were interested in this new weapon and, in 1935, placed several spies within the community where the weapon was being developed disguised as housecats. These spies passed information on to Germany who was able to reverse engineer a copy they called the 10.1mm Walther. This weapon was actually used on the Bizmark and Tirpitz battleships but had an oversleeve as a disguise.

The actual 10mm as a personal sidearm was deployed with the 101st Airborn division in a modified 1911 made of a top-secret (at the time) steel to allow it to take the pressures. There is a documented case of one being used to destroy three German Tiger tanks that foolishly lined up right in front of the shooter. The scene is the inspiration for the end of "Saving Private Ryan" where Miller destroys the tank with his sidearm (it was modified and the plane added to make it more "believable").

The 10mm was a promising round with a bright future. However, the CIA, KGB, MI-6, along with the UAW, PTA, and NASCAR, all decided it was too powerful for civilians to be able to own and supressed any record of it's existance. They were only partly sucessful as a 1911 10mm barrel and a box of ammo was found in Jerusalem (not far from the sight of Jesus' tomb as it turns out). Testing was done and the round was re-introduced as a "new round" (as the history had been surpressed). The aformentioned CIA/KGB/MI6/PTA/NASCAR alliance, along with new members NFL and McD's, have fought to supress this round but have only had marginal sucess.

The battle continues to this day.

It was well after his death that the title "Alexander the Great" was first used. Research has shown that, while he was alive, he was referred to by his subjects as "Alexander the Mediocre"

The scientific term for Bigfoot, "GIGANTANTHROPUS CRYPTICUS", literally translates into "Big hairy thing that is only afraid of Chuck Norris".

Christopher Columbus' fourth ship, the Cinco De Mayo , was lost with all hands in the fall of 1492 just 20 miles south of the Cervasea Islands. The log from Columbus' ship indicates that no one noticed anything wrong with the ship, but it sailed away over the horizon and was lost. Columbus' own entry reads in part, "It's as if they started sailing north and away from the group on purpose."

Historians dispute your conclusion that all hands were lost. There is solid evidence that they made it to Cuba; their descendents opened the Copacabana Night Club (the hottest spot north of Havana) and kept it going until Battista fell and Castro took over.

Oil on the moon

There's oil on the moon and plenty of it. Neil Armstrong's initial steps were on solid ground but in those dark shadows were tar-pits. He and Buzz Aldrin inspected them off camera and brought back samples, including the bones of a saber-tooth tiger.

Tar-pits mean oil. On the second lunar landing further exploration was done and geo-physical tests were run. They told everyone that they were researching the presence of earthquakes on the moon...not true. They were looking for salt domes that hide vast quantities of oil. And they found those salt domes...all over the place.

This is the real reason the Space Shuttles were taken out of commission servicing the Space Station. They have been retrofitted as tankers and will soon be supplying the Navy, Army and Air Force with light sweet crude from the moon.

Then they will be expanding to the commercial market, just like the Space Station and then we can all laugh at the high prices of oil knowing that we have a lock on moon oil.

A Myan whose name has been lost to history was working on a calender. He worked dilligently until one day his chisel broke. "No problem", he thought, "I'll just go get another one from the tool crib." So he goes to the tool crib and asks the tool crib attendant for another chisel.

"Do you have the proper requisition forms?" the attendant asked him.

"No, I just need another chisel. Here's the broken one to prove I'm not trying to steal a chisel."

"You still need the proper forms, signed by your manager."

So, frustrated but not wanting to argue any longer, the calender-maker goes to his manager.

"[Boss], I need a new chisel. This one broke."

"How did you break it?" the manager asked

"I was just chiseling my calender. I've had the same chisel since I started 2,187 moons ago."

"You should take better care of your tools. The new chisel will come out of your pay." said the manager.

"WHAT!!! I've been using this same chisel for much longer than anyone else here. I sharpen it dilligently. I don't abuse it. STUFF WEARS OUT!!!!"

"I don't care, you're still paying for the new chisel."

"Forget this! I quit!!!!" said the calender maker.

However, the calender maker was the only one who really knew how to make a calender. The manager, not realizing this, was now in a pickle. He asked another chiseler (who knew a little about calender making but not enough to do it on his own) to finish the calender.

The new chiseler tried to complete the calender but had to report to his manager that he could not do the job. "I'm sorry boss, I just can't do it."

"Well, what can we do?" said the calender maker.

"Just chisel some end-of-the-world BS at the end and call it good." said the boss.

The German battleship Bismarck was actually just a surfboard for Jesus when he got bored. Then he tricked it out, and things got slightly out of hand.

Few are aware of the secret history and nature of the internet itself.


Now the secret is revealed.

Up till this year, credit for writing the song, Take This Job and Shove It, has been given to David Allen Coe. This is the very same song that stayed at number one spot on the country charts after Johnny Paycheck released his cover of the song as a single in 1977 or 1978.

Recently discovered documents, found in an old file cabinet by Jarrod and Brandi as they were going through a foreclosed storage locker, seem to indicate that David Allen Coe was actually inspired to write the song during his college days while working part-time as a Professor's assistant.

During his college days, Mr. Coe assisted on a dig near and old Mayan factory. Around this time, he found some clay tablets with writings etched into them. The writings themselves, appears to have been made with an ancient precursor to today's modern pencil. Although all of the tablets have not been completely deciphered, what experts now know is that Mr. Coe found several tablets created by what most archeologists believe was a disgruntled calendar maker at the Mayan factory.

These tablets also give insight to the factory's day to day operations. Currently, experts are in agreement that the Mayan supervisors were sticklers for proper paperwork protocols as well as being doggedly persistent when it came to properly filled out requisitions for hand tools.

Two of the worker's tablets which were deciphered by Mr. Coe and his professor are still missing to this day.

In ancient Rome there was a guild of artisans known as "scratchers". these people made their living making artistic scratchings on the pewter utensils of the day. The wealthier the individual the more scratched objects they were likely to own. One particularly wealthy client had a new set of wares made to commererate his wedding anniversary each year. The cups in the set were scratched with "I" for the first year, "II" for the second, "III" for the third.

Before his fourth anniversary the client came into the shop and asked for something "a little different" for the next set. The boss was not at work that morning due to the fact that he was celebrating his own daughter, Ivy's, birthday with the family. His workers were huddled together trying to figure out what to do for the client that would be different.

When the boss walked in the shop and announced,

"Ivy is Four"

the history of the "Roman Numeral" system was forever changed.

Eeyore, Winnie the Pooh's melancholy and somewhat negative, down in the dumps donkey neighbor, was found not guilty on charges of embezzling funds from Ashdown Forest's tax collectors office in order to pay back child support to his four illegitimate zonies.

barry soetoro, dictator for life of America, by way of his most recent political stances, has finally proven to the world that he is not a socialist. Upon conclusion of "his" press conference today, in which the country was simply shown a close up of the teleprompter's text by all the major networks, the dictator for life, if actually reading the teleprompter, would have said, "In the next two years I will close down the federal reserve and bring us back to a paper currency that is based on America's holding of precious metals."

Enraged, bill maher immediately called the bank and cancelled his last contribution check of $1,000,000.

For decades the Peoples Republic of China has been a threat to the nation of Taiwan but the causes of this have been misunderstood. this actually stems from former leader, Chairman Mao's frustration over the fact that by the time a ship came back from across the Strait of Taiwan, his take-out order was cold.

Captured on a remote security camera, two suspects fleeing from an attempted armed robbery were able to successfully outrun the shots fired from their intended victim's .45.

Afterward, the victim was heard screaming, "These dang .45's! These dang, slow *ssed .45's! I'm gonna get me a 10mm!"
