When She Said She Could Tell My Personality By Looking At My Writing, I Had To Test Her Theory

Everyone’s handwriting is different. But did you know that it is a mirror into your personality? If you’ve heard this before, you’ve probably been curious. I know I am. But I get curious about all the interesting personality tests. However, when you learn these tricks to analyze your handwriting, you’ll see that it reveals something deep within you. Write out a few sentences now and then go through the following steps. You’ll see how much of your personality comes through the words and letters you write.

After you have a few lines of handwriting to analyze, go through each of these points and see which one matches your writing. When you determine that, you can get a glimpse into your personality. We promise that this one will interest you and all your friends.

The slant

No slant: You are logical. You do not often make emotional decisions.

Right slant: You’re an emotional person. You value family. You’re friendly, and you love romantic stuff.

Left slant: You’re someone who’d rather curl up with a good book than go to a party. You lead a reserved life and prefer not to be bothered.

Letter size

Small letters: You’re more introverted and have good concentration.

Large letters: You focus on the people around you, and you have a desire to be understood.

Pressure

Light pressure: You’re a person who is in control. And if something changes, you can adapt.

Heavy pressure: You’re an emotional individual who sometimes *cough* overreacts.

Broad ‘Y’ Loop: You’re open and have a lot of friends.

Slender ‘Y’ Loop: You have few, very close friends.

Long ‘Y’ Loop: You love to travel.

Short ‘Y’ Loop: You love spending time at home.

Connection of Letters

Disconnected letters: You’re intelligent and have a strong intuition.

Connected letters: You make decisions quickly and often have a logical plan.

Upper Zone

Retracted ‘L’: You have a pessimistic outlook because a lot of your plans do not work out.

Looped ‘L’: You set firm goals and believe in your ability to accomplish them.

Retracted ‘T’: Your strength is self-control. You work very hard.

Looped ‘T’: You can’t take criticism.

Dots on the ‘I’

Small dot: You’re a perfectionist. And you like to keep your life free from clutter.

Circular dot: You have an active inner child and are artistic. You’re also one to stand out in the crowd.

Cross on the ‘T’

Low cross: You might have low aims in life.

High cross: Your self-esteem is high, and you aspire for the stars.

Word spacing

Narrow spacing between words: You have dependency issues with other people. You can’t be alone.

Wide spacing between words: You’re an independent individual who likes to avoid crowds.

Line spacing

Even spacing: You respected boundaries and understand conversations about them.

Little spacing: You have poor time management.

What did you find out about yourself? If you enjoyed it, ask your friends for a few written lines and then analyze their writing. Maybe you can tell them secrets about their personality that they didn’t know.

Royalty, Dynasties, The Elite, The Deep State And Central Bankers

“Indeed, the existence of class, of social hierarchy, is as old as man himself. It prevails in the jungle where strength determines hierarchy; among men, it has also been savagely the same; whereby rulers vested with power through personal combat; or through lineal heritage as in the case of royalty; ravage their subjects.” —Sionil Jose, Contemporary Philippine English Author

Never have so many been so enamored by an irrational fantasy, spoon fed to us by a news media hungry to appeal to the raw emotions of their “subjects” ….. for ratings.  It was TV saturation of Harry and Meghan, channel, after channel, after channel.  If the world were coming to an end, we’d still be seeing Harry and Meghan on our flat screens.

By the time you read this, the pomp, circumstance and pageantry “wedding of the century“, under the British Crown, will finally be over and the “little” people can go back to their daily drab lives while they dream of prince and princesses.

Hopefully, it is obvious to some that Prince Harry and American Princess Meghan Markle are flesh and blood people, as are all royals.  They eat and drink, they sleep, they eliminate, they get sick, they make love, they have kids and like every other human being on this planet, they bleed and they eventually die.  Their brain and their body parts are the same as yours.  They are not elevated to some superior status just because of a birthright.  It is a fantasy, a fiction and a contradiction of and conflict with human freedom.  At the risk of offending a whole lot of people, you are being conned ….. unfortunately willingly.

What hogwash.  For God’s sake people, we fought a revolution to be free of Kings, Queens, royalty, the elite and the bankers.  Now we glorify them?

We are WE THE PEOPLE, not subjects of the Crown, or the Democrats, or the Republicans, or the executive branch, or the legislative branch, or the judicial branch, or the deep state, or the central bankers.  We’re not British subjects any more and haven’t been for over two centuries.  We are free Americans and at great cost and sacrifice.  But oh how quickly we abdicate our individual sovereignty to those who wield political power over us without so much as a whimper or a nod.  We have sullied and trashed the memory of every man, woman, or child that gave their lives for freedom.  In 242 years we have plundered our freedom and gave it up for a false sense of security and a free handout from government, along with millions of strangling laws, rules and regulations.

Look what has happened to the original thirteen colonies, those Confederation of states that gave birth to American freedom, the Declaration of Independence and the U. S. Constitution during and after the American Revolution?  At least eleven of those colonial states have morphed into socialist strongholds where Democrat/socialists control the legislative, judicial and executive branches of government, as well as the bureaucracy.

Massachusetts is a far cry from the days of yesteryear and the battles of Concord, Lexington and Bunker Hill.  Massachusetts spawned the flawed and corrupt Kennedy Dynasty and the likes of Senator Elizabeth (Pocahontas) Warren.  Vermont gave birth to that socialist wonder, U. S. Senator Bernie Sanders.  What is even more alarming is that millions of millennials flocked to Bernie’s coattails when he ran for President in 2016.

The Royal Connecticut legislature, gun control nuts all, just passed the National Popular Vote Compact.  The Compact, by Democrat controlled states, are blatantly designed to circumvent the Electoral College and return America to the popular vote.  They may just succeed.

From an article in the Daily Signal they describe Connecticut’s conspiratorial end run around the Constitution.

“Most Americans have never heard of the National Popular Vote compact, but it is shockingly close to causing a major political and legal firestorm.  It is a clever scheme to change how we elect the president without the bother of having to pass a constitutional amendment.”

“States that approve this legislation enter a simple compact with one another.  Each participating state agrees to allocate its electors to the winner of the national popular vote regardless of how its own citizens voted.  The compact goes into effect when states holding 270 electoral votes (enough to win the presidency) have agreed to the plan.”

“With Connecticut’s vote, 11 states and the District of Columbia have now approved the measure, giving the compact a total of 172 electors. It needs only 98 more to reach the 270 mark.”

And look what has happened to the Democrat-controlled States of California, Oregon and Washington.  California might just as well be its own separate socialist Central American Spanish-speaking country and secede from the Union.  Oregon and Washington, that is the Western parts, have succumbed to the rallying cry of not only socialism but radical environmentalism, while taxing their citizens to death by the billions for the worldwide con game of climate change, salmon habitat restoration for Indians and paying for the homeless.  The more money they throw at the homeless and the Indians, the more the homeless and the Indians demand.  Duh!

Meanwhile, Americans get all goo-goo eyed over a wedding of two mortals, who just happened to be the offspring of do-nothing royals in a country that can’t seem to divest itself of its royal King and Queen past.

But it’s not just the British royals and family dynasties we abhor.  Government, the elite, the establishment, the deep state, central bankers and the Socialist Democrats are on our list as well.

Everywhere you turn, or own royal government is in our face.  Laws, regulations, permits, taxes and higher costs due to government negligence, corruption and fiscal insanity, dominate your life.  We might just as well live under a King or Queen.

You can’t turn sideways without breaking a law.  You live in a police state but you don’t know it, or don’t care.  You tell yourself, “well that’s OK, at least they haven’t come into my house.”   And how long will it be before they start walking into your house without a warrant, or come on your property and poke around looking for violations for which they can fine you, or send you to jail?  Wake up!  American “royals” are already doing it, for a fair-the-well.  So you say, “well that’s OK, at least they haven’t come into my bedroom.”  Think again!  They are already looking into your bedroom and checking out the sex behavior of the American culture for use in designing further controlling policies.  College and universities spit out these over-educated psychological “experts” like cordwood and guess where they go to work?  That’s right, government, public education and academia.

Government royals collect the most intimate details about each of us and all that information is stored on massive computers.  Cameras are everywhere.  Electronic surveillance is ever present.  The FBI and DOJ have gone rogue.  Government, under Obama Care, requires that all of your medical records be electronically stored in a national database.  Doctor – patient privacy will be non-existent, if it isn’t already.

Got a sex problem?  The government will know.  Not paying your bills?  The government will know.  Got guns in your house?  The government will know.  Got speeding tickets?  The government will know.  Had an argument with your spouse? The government will know.  Spanked your kids?  The government will know.  Using too much electricity or water?  Government will know.

Have you heard of the government Fusion Centers or the NSA?  Look them up.  It will make your blood boil.  They have taken spying on Americans down to a veritable science and the leading edge of technology.

They even have a machine now that can drive by your house or your car and see and hear everything that is going on inside there, in lurid detail.

Then there are the local public schools that your royal government has stuck their hand in through the U. S. Department of Education.  We wrote about this issue recently in our article entitled, “Well Johnny What Did You Learn At School Today?”  By setting the national curriculum, they are brainwashing, that’s right, we said brainwashing, your kids.  You say, “well what’s the brainwashing?”   The brainwashing is a curriculum that is the antithesis of the American foundation of individual rights, freedom, liberty, and sovereignty.  They teach psychologically washed multi-culturalism, collectivism, socialism, radical environmentalism and political correctness.  They teach that America is evil, a gross polluter of the environment and a flagrant consumer of the Earth’s resources.  They teach that America is imperialistic and wants to dominate the world with its military power, without telling them that our military power and American blood have saved over a billion people from the brutality of dictators.

They tell impressionable kids that America must be reined in.  We must conserve.  We must apologize to the world.  They teach the kids to challenge their parents with this garbage.  They teach that the family must be broken down and separated.   They teach people how to rat on their neighbors.  They teach that government is all wise and all knowing and parents aren’t too smart.  Through this brainwashing, they (the royals of America) are dividing us, while conquering us at the same time.

And what of this ideology of radical environmentalism, coming to you from the most corrupt body on the planet, the United Nations and codified into American law without a treaty being debated and ratified?  It’s just another ruse for the “royals” to control you even more than you were before.  These planners and other educated idiots want to force you into ever-increasing densities in large cities.  Why?  No, it’s not only for environmental reasons.  The fact is, government can control people better when they are densely packed into urban areas.

Government controls your roads, buses and rapid transit (transportation).  They control your water, your sewer, your telephones, your electricity and your health care.  What good is a house in the city without roads, water, sewer and electricity, everything that government controls?   No good at all and government can withhold those services to force you to comply with their demands.  You will willingly capitulate when the “royals” shut off your water.

Sure, they tell us that all of their actions are for our own good and our own safety.  “That’s the price you pay for being secure and educated“, they say.  But do you call this freedom?

Ladies and gentlemen, when are you going to quit bowing to a “royal” birthright or government, a government that has lost all allegiance to the principles of liberty and instead adheres to the policy that government knows best, whether the people like it or not?

There are a few courageous ones that are challenging government in isolated spots around the country, but they are paying a terrible price for their audacity and having little effect.  Many lose everything in the process.  Some pay huge fines.  Many go broke.  Some even land in jail.  Some even get killed.  Very few win.  If there is not an avalanche of this type of resistance, America, as a free and sovereign nation, will be no more.  If not enough Americans get off their dead butts and resist this onslaught of tyranny, history will record this 100-year event as the greatest conquest of mankind since the dawn of human civilization ….. without a shot being fired!

That’s right!  You have been bowing down to “royal” government every day of your life and if you will look in the mirror and tell yourself the truth, you know it to be a fact. That’s disgusting and demeaning and not worthy of free men and women.  Sadly, you are not a sovereign any more.  You are just a happy slave.  How can living under a King or Queen be any different?

While Americans get enraptured in the illusion of royal fairy tales from England, Rome is burning and deranged shooters, wanting to commit suicide or “get even”, are shooting up innocent kids in our schools.  Peasants from poor countries are pouring across our borders by the millions and getting on welfare.  Healthcare costs are going through the roof.  Meanwhile, our “royal” governors, legislators, the elites, the establishment, the deep state and the central bankers are winning, or doing nothing ….. and freedom is losing.

Nevertheless, we’re not buying this up-side-down “royal” manure.  We consider ourselves to be individually sovereign and we bow to no man, royalty ….. or government.  Which are you?

But then, as a lonely, humble voice in the wilderness, what do we know?

Retired Marine fighter pilot upsets Lexington mayor, wins Democratic primary for U.S. House seat

LEXINGTON, Ky. — A political newcomer knocked off Lexington Mayor Jim Gray — a prized Democratic recruit and major figure in Kentucky politics — in a primary for a U.S. House seat Tuesday.

Amy McGrath, a retired Marine fighter pilot, won the Lexington-area 6th District contest and is now poised to take on Republican Rep. Andy Barr in a red-leaning district that Democrats hope will shift in their favor in November’s midterm elections.

Gray conceded the race Tuesday night.

“I want to congratulate Amy McGrath on her victory and her win tonight,” Gray said at his election night event. “It was a spirited campaign, and I know that Andy Barr is in for the fight of his life. I am ready to help Amy and I want all of you to join me. It’s time for us to stand with Amy and continue this effort to do all we can to send her to Washington.”

The win for McGrath is the latest evidence of a political climate in which voters are eager to cast out those they see as figures of the political establishment. It also showed the strength of female candidates amid the “Me Too” movement.

McGrath told CNN on Sunday that Gray is a “sort of standard politician. He’s a good guy and he’s a good public servant. There’s a sense of, he’s not right, right now. There’s a sense that we need somebody different.”

“It’s more, this time, this climate, right now,” she said. “It’s very clear that people are looking for more women. It’s very clear that people are really interested in candidates who aren’t necessarily — that didn’t grow up within the political party.”

Gray, who had built a family construction business into a global firm and is one of the first openly gay Kentuckians elected to public office, had rejected accusations that he was a figure of the establishment.

In an attack ad just days before the election, Gray pointed out that McGrath — who just finished 20 years of active-duty military service — had just moved into the district months before launching her run for Congress.

Gray was recruited by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, but over the course of the campaign some Democratic strategists came to view McGrath as the stronger national candidate.

She was among a crop of veterans recruited and financed in part by Massachusetts Democratic Rep. Seth Moulton. McGrath also had the support of New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who has backed female candidates over establishment preferences in several races.

Build a Bolt Action Rifle – Remington Model 700 in .308

I remember, albeit through a rosy lens, the formative days of my long range shooting interest. These were the days when I learned about the daunting nature of precision handloading and five hundred yards seemed like it may as well be as far away as Mars. I fondly recall the first time I rang steel at a thousand yards and the trials I had to pass to get there. These articles have special meaning to me in that they are, to a degree, the realization of a youthful dream and the heavy heart of a lost passion.

When I began this project there was a clear aim in mind: build the best Remington 700-based rifle as I could using a method that was easily accessible to you, my audience. I wanted to do this in a way that allowed a challenge for a beginner that was more involved than building an AR. Almost everything in this article can be had from my great friends at Brownell’s, including the barreled action I used.

Build a Bolt Action Rifle - Remington Model 700 Action in .308
Build a Bolt Action Rifle – Remington Model 700 in .308

U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)- This project started innocently enough, as most do, and eventually became the complete gun you see here. I was talking to a few guys I know around the gun counter before Thanksgiving and things just went from there. My friend behind the counter lamented the general nuisance of his patrons to me time and again, but the conversation he had with a young and enthusiastic customer while I waited left him with a struck nerve. The customer was a young man and in him, as he walked out discouraged, I saw my young self.

My friend gave me a look of exhaustion. “I just don’t know why anyone would ever buy a bolt action in today’s world. You can build an AR that is more accurate with less cost and it will be a better gun. I just wanted him to understand that an AR is better than the bolt action he wanted.”

I smiled. “Hasn’t anyone ever told you that the customer is always right?”

“Josh, you know that that’s not true when it comes to guns.”

“I suppose. Why is it that gun stores are the only place that tells people what they should want? Imagine going to a restaurant and having the waiter tell you what food to eat because he knows better.”

“Not the same thing.”

“That guy wants a bolt action. He wants to build a gun like in the books he reads about snipers and heroes. He wants to embody something ideal to him, not buy what may be best. Guns have culture and not everything needs to make sense.”

“Guns should be practical.”

I looked around at the racks and racks of guns around us and gave him a sly glance. “If practical was the only thing that sold, you’d be out of business.”

THE ACTION

I decided right out the gate that this project would need to be in a .308 Winchester as it is, aside from .30-06, the greatest American rifle round ever made. As a kid I always valued the .308 for both power and versatility when compared to other available options and it is one of my favorite rounds.

This project was to be a semi-custom build and I wanted to build something like I had when I was younger, long before the days of chassis guns. I wanted it to have the features of a hunting rifle while offering a set of traits that could be easily used at the range and offer accessibility to people wanting to build something similar.

To accomplish this, Brownell’s supplied me with a barreled Model 700 action in .308 Win with a 20” heavy barrel and 5/8-24” threaded muzzle. This setup was pretty much ready to rock and, because I didn’t have to headspace the barrel, it would offer me an easier build. I would strongly recommend this barreled action as a solution to a home bolt gun builder. There is some deception involved when people talk about the ease of building an AR at home. The barrel on an AR comes with what is called a barrel extension where the bolt locks in. This area on the gun is delivered pre-headspaced and is sort of like a disembodied receiver. The 700 action’s ‘barrel extension’ is the receiver itself so, in my mind, it is not so different than an AR build in terms of general difficulty.

Headspacing a bolt action is a daunting task to a new builder. I recall my earliest attempt at getting a Savage barrel off of the action and the painstaking effort of headspacing the new one. It was so new to me then. I was terrified of the gun blowing up! Looking back at my inexperience made me chuckle while writing this. I probably checked that chamber depth fifty times before I felt confident it was correct.
With the action in hand, I cleaned it up and removed the factory trigger.

THE STOCK

I wanted to do a more traditional stock on this gun than what I had originally intended on doing. If I had intended on going straight for a chassis or something more modern it would take away the fun of bedding. Yes, bedding a rifle is more difficult and frustrating than most people have the time and patience for, but it can yield great results if done correctly and is a worthy challenge for the hobby builder.

I received a new stock from Grayboe, a young stock company that is already making waves with the quality of their products. The particular model that I received is called the Terrain, a mix of modern ‘tactical’ and classic hunting lines. Grayboe is to traditional stocks as Sig Sauer is to 1911 pistols. Classic lines and respect of tradition are ever-present, with new advances and great materials used in place of old methods. Grayboe is worth a look to anyone who wants to buck the chassis trend and do so without breaking the bank.

Along with the stock I received a Grayboe-recommended bottom metal set from Mesa Precision Arms. This is a great addition and allows the use of any AICS-type magazines. For the uninformed, the AICS-type mags have become a standard for modern bolt actions and there is no reason for any current rifle to lack in this department. The nice thing about a detachable magazine, aside from the ease of reloading, is that it doesn’t immediately distract from traditional lines. Rifles like the British Enfield had detachable magazines well over one hundred years ago and considered classic, not tactical.

Brownell’s supplied me with MarineTex to bed the rifle with. MarineTex is an epoxy that has exceptional strength properties and essentially bonds with the stock material to make a perfect footprint of the action. The theory behind bedding a rifle like this is that it allows for a custom action-to-stock fit, thus removing any ability of the action and stock to shift or otherwise move around during firing. This then translates to an increase in the overall accuracy of the weapon.

When I showed some friends the process of bedding, they were overwhelmed. The prospect of putting what is essentially glue into a gun is a foreign concept to many new shooters or those who grew up shooting AR-type rifles. This came as no surprise, as most of modern gun building is like building a LEGO set and offers less complexity than many said toys.

The prospect of putting what is essentially glue into a gun is a foreign concept to many new shooters or those who grew up shooting AR-type rifles.

The first step in this process is to lightly sand the interior areas of the stock to increase the bond with the MarineTex. Use the bedding epoxy to fill small gaps and fit parts like the bottom metal to the stock precisely. I use olive oil cooking spray as a release agent on the stripped action and metal parts. A light spray is all it takes and the surface should show a thin coating. Obviously one should avoid spraying the interior of the stock as this would defeat the purpose of bedding.

The light oil spray will generate no problems with the curing of the epoxy. From there it is a walk in the park. With the trigger and all internals removed, I applied the MarineTex generously on the contact areas in the stock and simply screwed it all together. The epoxy will squeeze out in some areas, but luckily MarineTex has a long cure time. I cleaned up with water and paper towels and let it set.

After I let it sit and cure, I removed the action screws and cleaned up the metal parts. Remove excess material from the stock with sandpaper or a hobby knife. Knocking blobs and edges off takes only a few minutes and you don’t necessarily have to go crazy with it.

I double-checked all the fit and finish and decided that I had a great fit. In my next article, I finish building the rifle using more great parts from Brownells and take the dream gun of my youth out to the range and field.

Special Thanks to
