A metal/metalcore band formed in the late 90's in Massachusetts. Once unknown to the mainstream population, the band enjoyed a one-song fanbase of college students and frat kids who otherwise listen to Dave Matthews Band
and/or Soulja Boy
, via an appearance in the game Guitar Hero II
. Per usual Guitar Queero
standards, people instantly became "fans" while never listening to more than a single song by the band.
-Hey, what are you listening to?
-All That Remains.
-Oh cool! I like them!
-Really? You think "This Calling" is the best song off their newest album?
-Well I haven't heard it, but I like "Six"!
Shortened name for the People's Republic of Kalifornistan - a name referring to California; specifically, it's laws regarding gun ownership.
Though rarely, if ever, used in a crime, Kalifornistan has outlawed what they deem to be "evil" rifles - such as the AR-15
(civilian variant of the military M16) and the AK-47 - in any non-California legal variation. Having a number of "evil" features (such as a forward pistol grip, which is no more dangerous than having a tuna fish as a weapon) are limited in the number allowed on a given firearm. Any magazine above 10 rounds is illegal, since only the 11th shot fired from a firearm can kill someone.
The legislation put forth by the People's Republic of Kalifornistan has clearly worked, as Los Angeles still tops the list as one of the most dangerous places in the United States.
If Kalifornistan entirely outlaws firearms, the state will be much safer. Hardened street thugs and criminals never break the law, so there is no need to worry.

1) A two-door variant of the Suburban produced by Chevrolet starting in the 1960's and ending with the introduction of the Tahoe in the mid-1990's.
2) The name given to the Chevrolet S-10 Blazer after the introduction of the Tahoe. Produced until the mid-2000's.
S-10 Blazers and fullsize Blazers alike are referred to as "Blazers". Contrary to what many believe, the first generation Blazers were capable of running for what seemed like an eternity.
Fullsize Blazers came with the 5.7L 350 engine, which remained the base engine. Optional was a larger displacement diesel engine, primarily used with a 24 volt (as opposed to standard 12 volt) power system used in military Blazers in the 1980's.
The S-10 Blazer originally came with a TBI (throttle body injection) engine that was either a 2.8L (used in the V6 Camaro) or a 4.3L engine that was the V6 version of the well-known 5.7L 350. In 1990 with the introduction of the 4-door Blazer came the new CPI (central port injection) Vortec engine. In 1995 the Blazers were redesigned with a more rounded body, and included new MPFI (multi-port fuel injection) engines, in addition to dropping the S-10 prefix.
The first generation Blazers with the TPI 4.3L engines carried on the reputation of the 5.7L, many lasting well above 200,000 miles. However with the introduction of the 700R4 (later named 4L60) automatic transmission, many would only last to 200,000 miles, as the 3rd and 4th gear clutch packs would burn out in the transmissions. This problem was not as common to the fullsize Blazer after the introduction of the 4L60-E, however.
Additionally, problems with the heater core going out and leaking antifreeze into the floorboards were common, as well as seat frames being broken, rear window hydraulics not working, and other cosmetic problems, including the rare steering wheel breakage after one has slammed their fist into the steering wheel.
The S-10 Blazer has a reputation for holding its value. Many S-10 Blazers can be seen for sale for a few thousand dollars, even with 150,000+ miles.
The broken-down Chevrolet Blazer in my yard finally had the rear diff lock up after 300,000 miles of driving. Everything else still works, of course.
