Friday Night and the ONT is Easy

It's time for the ONT! Everybody drink up and rest well, because

Pro-Life

Last night I posted a link to a wonderful story. I don't think many of you followed it, because there were very few comments on it, and it's the type of story that usually generates comments. If you missed it last night, you can read it here. However, the Chinese have discovered another reason to be pro-life.

Babies have Wi-Fi! Who knew?

That's Gotta Hurt

We Said That This Would Happen

And it has. Kansas Man Killed In 'SWATting' Attack. I don't see how this can be anything but a homicide (I'll leave it to the lawyers to argue what degree), and I think there should be some charges that can be brought against the guy who gave the wrong address too. Finally, the cop who opened fire on an unarmed man as he answered his own door should be charged too. Just a complete and absolute cluster fuck all around.


This is Just Terrible Advice


You warm up a car in extreme cold to get the lubricants flowing, duh. Also, that bit about "It strips oil from critical components that help your engine run" and "(gas) can actually wash oil off the cylinder walls if you run it idle in cold conditions". WTF are they talking about? Gearheads, help me out here, just how stupid is that statement?

I Understand Wanting to Get Laid

What I don't understand is simply wanting to bang just anyone. I suppose if your standards are "two tits, a hole, and a heartbeat" this might be useful:


Tinder, Grindr, and other aps give a fascinating glimpse into the hook-up subculture. It's not that they are revealing anything new, in my yonderling days I certainly hooked up enough, but what's different is that now we have screen shots to save for all posterity exactly HOW the hook up happened, or didn't happen, or was attempted. There are whole websites and Twitter feeds dedicated to archiving these messages, and some of them are screamingly funny and/or damn clever. Some of them are smoooooth.

Funny:

Clever:

Smooooth:

I'm awfully glad I don't have to be in the dating scene anymore.

So, what did y'all think of the ONT?

Screw you, I nailed it.

19 A modern vehicle still needs a bit of warm-up for the mechanical parts. Though not as much as a more classic vehicle like a '66 Mustang.

Biggest factor for the warm-up? To get the cabin warm unless you like your teeth chattering for the first few miles.

Finally, the cop who opened fire on an unarmed man as he answered his own door should be charged too. Just a complete and absolute cluster fuck all around. ++++ Yup. All 3 of them: the guy who sent the cops, the guy who gave the fake address (knowing that the cops were getting sent there), and the cop who pulled the trigger. Assuming the story is correct, all three of them did things that led to an innocent man's death, and all three of them should have been aware that that was a foreseeable outcome of their actions. Probably the two dumbass gamers will get punished. The cop... Not so sure. Cops have a way with getting away with shooting people as long as there's no evidence that they outright murdered the victim.

69 30 seconds at rest to make sure everything is running properly is all you really need on modern cars. Modern cars are designed to warm up best with gentle driving and sitting for five minutes or so is just wasting gas. Letting a cold car warm up in winter is for your benefit, not the car.

83 You have to warm a car up to at least get the oil warm and circulating, which it don't like to do as much when its real cold. You don't want to be putting a load on the engine without the oil flowing. Also, the pistons are looser in a cold engine and fill the bore better once its at temperature, especially forged pistons, so why the hell would you want to be beating on a cold engine with pistons rattling in the bores? Harley EVO engines get the full crush on their head gaskets after its warmed up, because the cylinders grow, so beating on one cold isn't smart. Yeah, millions of reasons to warm it up.

107 Now the "experts" on the internet say you don't need to warm up an engine on account of the oil because today's cars use "thin" oil such as 5W or 0 Weight.

Posted by: Soothsayer SLX Pro Series II Platinum Turbo at December 29, 2017 05:09 PM (OX/RF)

108 Okay, time for a car starting lesson from the great white north. (Snow is white, I'm NOT gonna denounce myself for that.) First, plug in the headbolt heater at least an hour before you start the car if it is below zero. It's best to plug it in all night. Also, if you park outdoors while at work, make sure you get a parking spot with an outlet, so you can plug it in all day. This is much easier to do in Fairbanks than in Anchorage, but YMMV. Now, if you forget to plug it in, you might consider lighting the Coleman stove under the oil pan. You want to avoid cold starting because it will start to seize up your engine until the oil flows properly. Now, once you actually get the car started, let it run for at least 10 minutes until you try to put it in gear. Your hydraulics won't do a damned thing until the fluid melts. Just sayin'. It works for me!

Posted by: Anna Puma (HQCaR) at December 29, 2017 09:52 PM (FiGoY)


Business Insider video is badly wrong. The vehicle runs better if warmed up. Full stop. And if the windshield is iced over, you need to run the defroster until it clears. And since the automatic transmission is cooled by the engine's cooling system, it is also warmed by it, meaning it stands to live longer and prosper if the engine is warmed up. At the -30 temperatures prevailing around here right now, a half-hour warmup is not too much.



And modern cars are much less likely to experience problems with excess un-vaporized gasoline washing oil off the cylinder walls. Electronic fuel injection maintains much closer control on fuel mixture than was ever possible with a carburetor. That's one of the biggest reasons that engines now last in excess of 300,000 miles, instead of needing an overhaul at 120,000.

168 berserker speaks truth. it's fucking science. especially with todays engines. Posted by: chavez the hugo at December 29, 2017 10:08 PM (KP5rU) Double edge sword really. The newer cars are more forgiving cold than the older ones running wise, plus the oil is thinner in newer cars. Mine kicks off of high idle in 30 seconds, but there is so much plastic stuff, not to mention timing belts that can be more brittle when cold, so it just makes sense to warm things up before flexing the shit out of it. I also wonder about things like expansion in these aluminum engines. Like I said with the Harleys, the top ends grow on the EVO and twin cam engines. The old cast iron cylinder shovel heads have a 65 pound head bolt torque. On the EVO and twin cam motors with the aluminum cylinders you torque to 9 lbs, then 12-14 pounds, then you mark the bolts and turn them 90 degrees, which comes out to about 36-37 lbs of torque. The rest of the crush comes from being warmed up fully when the cylinders grow. I did a 10 1/2 :1 compression motor for some hammerhead who fired the bike up and immediately did a 90 yard burnout with it ( we measured it). The bike backfired bad at the end and started popping. He blew the head gasket right out of one of the cylinders because it hadn't gotten its crush yet. My car mechanic friends tell me about similar torque procedures for a lot of these aluminum car engines, and with water passages running through those suckers I would totally be warming them up just to make sure those head gaskets don't get stressed while cold.

176 Yes, but 911 received a call from a number that matched the house and the person said that he had shot and killed his father and was coming after the Caller (Mom) that was being supposedly held hostage by the gunman. Who knows what the cops said before knocking on the door but I wouldn't be too hard on the cop it's all on the ass that faked the call. Posted by: Patrick From Ohio at December 29, 2017 10:09 PM (dKiJG) ++++ No, it's not all on the gamers behind the swatting. They have their responsibility as well, but the cop is not off the hook. No matter what the cop thought he was dealing with, we don't want cops rolling out to the scene of a crime and start shooting the unarmed people there. They are supposed to investigate and *protect* the people who are not the criminals, not shoot them. Why do you even need this explained to you?

179 I've got a Prius (don't hate -- I have a long commute). The battery performance is noticeably degraded when it gets below 25 or so. Takes longer to charge up, doesn't perform as efficiently. So, I've got to think an all-electric is going to be less efficient too. Posted by: jonce I always wondered, we were looking at the Pacifica Hybrid. I just don't know anything about how to fix them. My Brother In Law says they have to have a wooden shepherds hook at the shop in case a person touches the wrong thing on a hybrid. I watched a video of a guy changing a battery on his Prius, no rubber gloves no shoes and the dummy was standing in a puddle of water, I was waiting for him to get shocked.

I don't like them. Unless maybe they have two-way radio comms so that you can monitor engine vitals via the remote. What if the engine quits, or an oil cooler hose springs a leak.


At least throw on a coat, go outside, start the car, wait a minute or two for it to idle down, and see that all gauges are in the green, then go back inside, and enjoy that third cup of coffee.

186 Often unconsidered is the fact gentle driving is a good idea for a few miles. The transmission fluid/lube needs to warm, differential, shocks, seals, bearings etc. Even if the engine is warm, the other bits are not.

188 And since the automatic transmission is cooled by the engine's cooling system, it is also warmed by it, meaning it stands to live longer and prosper if the engine is warmed up. That would explain why my truck shifts roughly at first on cold mornings.

They should just be held to the same damn standards regarding self-defense as everyone else. If Joe Q. Public could not shoot in self-defense or defense of another, then neither should a cop.

When i was a younger whipper snapper in early teens i thought abortion was no big deal, and of all things i used to chat in a political channel on a large internet chess server. Arguing on the internet is stupid right? Nobody's opinions ever change. But when i was challenged by the older, wiser, relatively few right wingers i realized i had no real rational basis for it and really all rationality pointed to being pro life, and i have been ever since. Here's a funny experiment - I'd wager it's more likely than not that your average lefty if asked would say a fetus isnt human, or that it isn't alive. This is the "pro science" crowd! Science is pretty certain a fetus is alive and human. But ask one sometime see what they say

259 227 There are plenty of situations where it would make sense for a cop to draw his weapon without first seeing one or even to fire it without seeing one. They should just be held to the same damn standards regarding self-defense as everyone else. If Joe Q. Public could not shoot in self-defense or defense of another, then neither should a cop. A lot of these bad shootings are nothing more than cowardice accompanied by a sense of special privilege or entitlement. Posted by: Bear with Assymetrical Balls at December 29, 2017 10:36 PM (H5knJ) Exactly... if you are held to a different legal standard based on your PROFFESION... how is that equal under the law?

263 When it warms up, open the hood, remove cardboard. I actually use 3 small pieces, so I can remove only 1 or 2. Been doing this for 40+ years. Posted by: pogomip at December 29, 2017 10:29 PM (0B8QL) ------ Sorry. I do have to note that you did not mention removing them at any time. I worked in the Service Dept. of a Caddy dealer in Chicago in the early 80s. From time to time a newer car would come in during the winter with overheating issues. They took that advice to mean leave that cardboard there all winter. Cost one guy with a Seville 3k in early 80s cash for a new crate motor because he drove it for about 200 miles after blowing the head gaskets. Car came in dry as a bone on coolant.

264 185 178. Yep. There's a 9mm Makarov. Tokarevs fire the far superior - and much cooler - bottle-necked 7.62x25. Posted by: Your Decidedly Devious Uncle Palpatine, Booking Agent, Aero Pinochet at December 29, 2017 10:25 PM (fA1SL) 9mm MAK is a round between 9mm Luger and .380 in power. I have two pistols in 9 Mak. It's a fine round. The Tok round is more powerful but you can carry a smaller pistol in 9 MAK, if that's your thing.

265 Here's why old-time racecars had a "riding mechanic": In early times, gas and air mixed in a "pot", across the top of which the engine's vacuum drew a draft. Barney Olfield improved the venturi effect and controlled the volume of gas and air going in, but the damn things were still hard to "throttle," or, turn down. You slowed down by shutting the ignition switch off -- and then you braked by putting the car into a broadslide. Remember, the roads and the tracks were all dirt or gravel. The cars often did not roll over.

While the magneto switch was off, the engine was still turning, and the pistons were still going up and down, and the gas was still flowing. All that gas inside the cylinder, not burning, would wash the oil right off the cylinder walls and leave a metal-to-metal interface. So, just before you switched back on after each corner, the mechanic would furiously pump a hand-pump to prime the top end with oil. Quite a bit of oil would then burn up, creating "drama," a great smell, and a dense fog.

Stated reason #1: you are contributing to "climate change" by needlessly burning fuel. Bullshit, of course.

Unstated reason: to punish proles who lack a heated garage.

Posted by: Grey Fox at December 29, 2017 10:50 PM (bZ7mE) Well, to wade in to this one a little bit -- your brother should act professionally and be held to the same (if not higher) standard of use of deadly force as you or I would be. Where that line is is kind of hard to say. For example, our troops in A'stan had rules of engagement that basically said they could not fire on potential hostiles until they had a gun aimed at them. That may be a bit much. but I do think cops, regardless of the legalities of the situation, should always err on the side of maybe putting themselves a little bit in potential harms way if it means they won't end up killing an innocent unarmed dude answering his door.

337 We were given an old VW bug in Spokane in the winter. It was parked outside with 30 weight oil in it. My husband used a hibachi to warm the oil up enough to drain it and put in lighter oil. It had no brakes, so we ran it using the emergency brake with the tail lights wired to the button. Few days are as happy as the day we left Spokane. When the VW broke down, I signed off on the title, put it in the glove box and wrote "take me home, I'm yours" on the outside of the car. It was gone in a half hour.

Another thing to consider in the Wichita case, is that if there actually had been an armed hostage-taker in that house, why the Hell would he have answered the door? Just the fact that the door was opened when they knocked should at least raise a red flag that maybe the dispatch was in error.

348 222 I started using KB hypereutectic pistons in the Harley engines because they run with an insanely tight piston to cylinder wall clearance. They ran test motors with .0005 clearance, but recommend .0014 on the street. That's amazing, especially compared to the .0025 cast pistons or the .004 forged. You need to have a looser ring gap on the top ring, .021 compared to .014, but that's it. They are quiet and make big power. Very smooth running pistons.

376 I started reading the story last night, and i guess mostly finished it but I was not in the mood. It seemed bloviating, but I guess he hit on one important point that is so lost on today's society - life is not a rose garden and what matters is how you handle the problems. Too many people expect (demand!) a perfect life and don't want it "ruined by a baby" (translation: they don't want their actions to have consequences.) This has led us to where we are today, and I do not see it as good. but the tweets I read never really got there, and instead seemed to be leading up to a love song to the unplanned kid. Yes, I am sure that child is wonderful and I do not want to criticize a father for that, I just am not sure it will make much of an impact on others. And what if you are not a screw-up and do not need a child to get you to have some ambition? And what about all the losers who have children and still do not have ambition? Taking responsibility is important, but it is more than just not murdering a child. For me, I was mostly unsure about the topic until my older sister had kids. The thing that struck me was how unique, precious, dependent, and human each one was. Each child is a miracle, and how anyone could murder their baby is incomprehensible to me. I can understand young people not seeing this, or not appreciating this, but once you see babies, I could never understand anyone having a pro-abortion position. These old hags on the left who have children and are still pro-abortion seem like such monsters to me. Deluded, in denial, and sad. monsters. I always feel sorry for young women who have abortion before having kids because I think one day they will have kids, and then they will know what a horrible thing they had done. I think a lot of the fervor of the left is driven by people like this unable to admit what they have done, so they insist it must be right. In fact, they assert, it must be more noble to murder babies than the alternative. How else could they live with themselves? OK WD wanted thoughts on that link, there it is. From a poor soul with no more reason to lie.

415 Anyone ever look into a pre-fab house? Some of them are impressive. And expensive. But the beauty is that you can pick out your house out of a catalog and have it "built" on your property in a couple of weeks. Posted by: Soothsayer SLX Pro Series II Platinum Turbo at December 29, 2017 11:08 PM (OX/RF) They're called manufactured homes. And yes, I live in one. It came from Canada, where apparently they frame everything with 2x4's, not 2x6's. Other than that, no complaints. Fairly well insulted, reasonably well built.

I don't know a goddam thing about cars but AOP is right the number one focus is not mileage or carbon emissions it's making sure your windows are clear and warm for safety. The new PZEV or ULEV or SULEV vehicles put out cleaner air in their exhaust than they take in, so it's not an emissions thing.

Posted by: Gentlemen --- My experience bears this out. My late wife had an abortion long before we had met. It always weighed heavily on her and was amped up after we had kids. In my mind, that fact, coupled with the loss of one of our babies, was the reason she lost her mind and eventually, took her own life. She was a tortured soul, poor thing.

Windows and doors were already in the wall panel including most of the siding. The interior trim was done by another crew; drywall, furnace were subcontract. Plumbing was in place, just needed to be hooked up. Wiring pre installed and was part of the rough in crew; just needed an electrician to hook up the panel box to the grid. The bigger houses took us three days to rough in.

My only concern would be sealing bacteria in, but I have yet to have an infection of a super glued injury.

492 It's not a joke but superglue can seal wounds, they something similar in Hospitals and they are using it more that stitches anymore because of less scarring and some Doctors don't even know how to stitch someone up. When I had my CABG-2 they glued the opening shut. I stared at that thing for the longest time trying to figure out how they did it. This was '09. I'm pretty sure it's a surgical glue that can be autoclaved or something similar. Legend has it that Stevie Ray Vaughan would superglue his guitar blisters shut. Gotta luv some NASA...

505 Well, to wade in to this one a little bit -- your brother should act professionally and be held to the same (if not higher) standard of use of deadly force as you or I would be. Where that line is is kind of hard to say. For example, our troops in A'stan had rules of engagement that basically said they could not fire on potential hostiles until they had a gun aimed at them. That may be a bit much. but I do think cops, regardless of the legalities of the situation, should always err on the side of maybe putting themselves a little bit in potential harms way if it means they won't end up killing an innocent unarmed dude answering his door. You and I aren't required to put ourselves in harm's way as part of our jobs, so while it is all fine and well to pontificate about holding everyone to the same standards from the safety of our computer chairs, the actual situations involved are going to be very different. I'm not a huge fan of police in general, but I do have some idea of what they are up against and why they act the way they do (as annoying as it can be). The military fighting a war and civilian law enforcement are and should be two entirely different things. Problem being that the distinction between war and crime is a rather artificial one based on the modern nation-state with national armies. The rise of such things as terrorist organizations doesn't fit into the paradigm in which the distinction between police and military was originally made (only a 150 years ago, IIRC) and so there is going to inevitably be blurring between the two as the world returns to its natural order. (If the proceeding doesn't make sense to you, ask yourself this: Were the viking raiders criminals or soldiers?)

Windows and doors were already in the wall panel including most of the siding. The interior trim was done by another crew; drywall, furnace were subcontract. Plumbing was in place, just needed to be hooked up. Wiring pre installed and was part of the rough in crew; just needed an electrician to hook up the panel box to the grid. The bigger houses took us three days to rough in. Posted by: Captain Major at December 29, 2017 11:17 PM (KdDCu) Yes their was some company in Pennsylvania that did it and they were on that show on the history channel, that showed you how they build things.

572 There is a huge difference in a modular home, a manufactured home. A modular home is built to international Residential Code Specs and can either be transported and set on-frame or set-up off-frame. Modulars are equivalent to any stick-built home on standard. They can be placed anywhere. They are in cities. The set-up is the key. If you have a bad set-up crew, there will be problems that can destroy the integrity of the home. Manufactured homes are built to a lower requirement and will weigh less. The studs are not true 2x4s and they are spaced on 18" centers (In the USA, you can tell a manufactured home by a small HUD tag that will be affixed on the end of home (or each section of the home). They are limited on where they can be set-up and the financing is more difficult (many, but not all are chattel). The set-up is again critical.

577 I'm a tiler, and I can tell you that there is no comparison between the difficulties of policework and workplace hazards in construction. Lies, damned lies, and statistics. Posted by: Grey Fox at December 29, 2017 11:43 PM (bZ7mE) All I can say is that a roofer, for example, is more likely to be seriously injured or killed on a job then a cop is. I also don't think police work is very difficult. I guess it depends on where you're working and whatnot, but for the most part it involves sitting in a car, occasionally writing tickets, and arresting drunk people for doing stupid things. Like yeah, there are probably adrenaline filled moments, but for the most part it's... just another job.

586 >> Problem being that the distinction between war and crime is a rather artificial one based on the modern nation-state with national armies. ---------------- If things internally have deteriorated to the point where cops have to act like soldiers, then it's time to call in the actual soldiers.

After all we have a War on Drugs (and others I suppose) where the distinction (cops have to act like soldiers) may not make a difference.

Posted by: texcat at December 29, 2017 11:46 PM (wf3RQ) My house is framed fairly conventionally (16 on center with real 2x4's), except they used 2x4's on exterior walls and for the roof rafters, which is not super common in my part of the world. People prefer 2x6 framing because you fit more insulation in the walls. They also framed the two sections of the roof separately, which looks odd, but is structurally fine.

595 Right. The military deals with external threats -- you know, the enemies of the people. Police deal with anti-social behavior by segments of the people. It's a completely different function. You're still assuming a modern nation-state and a clear distinction between "the people" and their enemies. The rise of international terrorism (and the internet, and other stuff) means that the old paradigm doesn't really fit reality.

624 See the "Posse Comitatus Act", which enshrines the notion into federal law that the US Army (it applies to the Navy and Marine) and Air Force can't be used for domestic law enforcement. This is an expression of that long distinction we're talking about been military and civilian law enforcement. The President can, of course, during an emergency, invoke his Article II and Insurrection Act powers to, well, restore the rule of law if it comes to that. And governors can call out the "militia" (NAtional Guard, under state authority) as well, to restore order, if civil order has broken down. Both of these are situtations I was talking about when the cops need to act like soldiers. You send in the real soldiers. Our Framers were very suspicious of large standing armies. We don't want the state having too much power. Or at least, we didn't use to.

657 So then why not disband civilian police and just use the military as police? (for the record, I don't think that this current wave of Muslim terrorism, and the internet, change anything; but thats just one mans opinion) We kind of are, by degrees. The police are becoming more militarized, while the military ends up acting like police overseas. The two functions are merging slowly. I'm not cheering about this, note. I'm just saying that it is a response to fundamental changes in the way the world works, and has to be addressed as such.

Posted by: Bear with Assymetrical Balls at December 29, 2017 07:14 PM (H5knJ)

672 I thought the Vikings example was perfectly apt.
There have only been police forces since the 1820's. Before that, a town might have its own militia, like in that Rembrandt painting. Or, it might draft citizen patrols, and you took your turn. All that depended on the "commune" legal status of burgs. Outside towns that had been granted legal authority, patrol was up to the land owners, which in theory worked, under feudal theory.

It is true that everything changed with the modern state, Westphalia 1648. The king's right to enforce the peace on behalf of the nation dates from then, internationally. As legal officers, coroners predate sheriffs.

A lot of bawling about Peace, and the injustice of Borders, dates from 1648, and began as propaganda for the parties who held "police" power before it devolved onto cities and national governments.

There is no ancient philosophical argument about those aspects of police power vs military. There just weren't any police to discuss.

686 Oh. Not here. The US Govt didnt even have a standing army for most of those early years. There was the militia. We also did have a small standing army from the end of the Revolution until the the formation of the US Army, which was used along the frontier and garrisoned West Point. A great number of these soldiers got wiped out in embarrassing defeats, which is perhaps why this period of our military history is largely ignored today.... More to the point, there wasn't the modern distinction between a professional police force and the military, which was a Victorian invention (and probably related to the rise paternalistic notions of government that we deplore today). So to assume that a strong distinction between the two is baked into the constitutional cake is rather blinkered, I think.

694 Coldest winter I ever saw was around '94 or '95. Went and entire month with highs around zero and lows in the minus teens to on night at minus 30. Actual Temp not wind chill. This was in the country in SW Michigan. I had an '85 Ford Ranger, no garage. I found that if I let it set for more than 4 hours in that cold it just wouldn't start.

Had to jump start it and crank and crank with it firing every once in a while until it finally started. My neighbor let me park in her garage and that helped.

Later was told by an mechanic that the early Ford Ranger electronic ignition had a sensor that went wonky when the engine block got to below zero. The cranking and firing would finally warm the sensor up enough so it would send the right information to the computer and the truck would start. Keeping it in the garage instead out in the cold wind made the difference.

706 "398 I have done very minor procedures on myself. Nothing requiring stitches or anything. I would like to learn how to properly suture a wound, though. Posted by: Insomniac " About 2 months ago, i was upgrading some wiring in a house I was redoing. But I was in a hurry, and by myself (both mistakes) and I sloppily ran up an insecure ladder up into the rafters of the garage, where I need to clean up some bad wiring done by some shade tree mechanic who didn't know what I was doing. Long story short, ladder collapsed, I went boom, thought I was doing okay until I stood up and saw this big pool of blood where my head had landed. So I didn't want to wait for someone to come to me, ended up driving home with one hand on the wheel and the other hand holding pressure on the gash in my head with a rag, mainly because I didn't want to have to clean a lot of blood off my seat and headrest. Wondered about doing a self suture, but 20 minutes of icepack stopped the bleeding (freaked my wife out) and I called it good.

712 I tend to get interested in stuff that interests me and absolutely no one else. Case in point: I was thinking about the first transcontinental airplane flight in 1911. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vin_Fiz_Flyer The plane itself is in the Smithsonian. The flight was sponsored by a soft drink company that made a drink called Vin Fiz. So naturally, I wanted to learn more about the drink itself. But there is no entry for it in Wikipedia. Further searching led me to this story from 2007: http://airportjournals.com/vin-fiz-reborn/ The original drink was apparently less than successful, but a modern guy decided to make and sell his own version. Alas, I couldn't find anything more than that, so it's evidently not being made anymore. Pity.

719 As a guy if you use a dating site your strategy has to be volume. 50-90% of women will ignore you completely so the only way to get anywhere is volume. I once setup something similar to the tinda-finger - it just emailed a polite but general request to every female on the dating site I was on. The hit rate was a bit lower then if I hand crafted each email but I got more conversations going. Many more. Frankly, there are serious problems with dating sites as constructed: You only really look at the other person's picture. Profile reading? hahahahaha It gives the illusion you have far more choice then you do, making you far pickier then you should be... Ten thousand women in my area? WOOHOOO. Oh wait, that's 100 active accounts of whom 50 would never want to respond to me for any reason? Uh...errr...that's different. Women frankly have a distorted view of the men in their cohort.

A great number of these soldiers got wiped out in embarrassing defeats, which is perhaps why this period of our military history is largely ignored today.... " Congress always hated providing funds for the Army, and after the War of 1812 cut back to a virtual skeleton force. This had a huge bearing on Andy Jackson's expedition against the natives in southern Georgia, which turned into his takeover of Florida. Most of Congress as well as the Monroe administration were outraged that Jackson essentially declared war on Spain all on his own, without asking anyone in Washington about it, and many were in favor of court martialing him and bringing him up on charges. Big Problem with that plan - Jackson was a great recruiter, and after he'd taken over Florida he had the allegiance of an army which was personally loyal only to him, and which was actually larger than the standing US Army of the day. So, D.C. did was D.C. has always been good at - they decided the best course of action was to declare Jackson a national hero and throw him a wild parade. Jackson and Trump had a lot in common.

Posted by: texcat In the 1920's and 1930's, Sears used to sell pre-fabricated kit homes out of a catalogue. I know someone in my town who actually owned one (they didn't build it). It was built from a kit from Sears in the 1930's. Still in pretty good shape today. And frankly, newer homes built on site are almost "kit" homes. They package all the parts, trusses, etc. and deliver to the site. Then the carpenters put it together. You have to watch them, because they will pack in substandard 2x4's, and they need to pull that stuff out before they put up drywall and outer wall sheathing.

Left out was the fact that men are about 100X more likely to run into workplace violence, but it's not a leading cause of injury for men, because there are so many other ways men get hurt or killed on the job.

I've worked for several lady bosses (some are okay, some suck, same as men) but never one did a girl get paid less than I did for the same job. Usually more because they had been there longer.

817 I'm surprised that underground mining didn't make the list of dangerous jobs. Guess we don't do that much anymore.

Posted by: Captain Major at December 30, 2017 12:57 AM (KdDCu)


Better safety practices account for a lot of that. And less underground mining for coal. That really skewed the stats. Coal is rarely found in country rock that is structurally sound, while metal mines are often, but not always, found in good solid rock. Plus, you have the explosive factor of coal gas.

Posted by: Prothonotary Warbler So will that be you stomping around at all hours in the middle of the night? Srsly, my upstairs person is a very heavy woman who works bar hours. Slams the door at 1:30am, stomps around, goes on the balcony (creaks alarmingly!) to suck down cigs, comes back in to crank up the stereo, stomps around some more. If I'm lucky, she remembers to turn off the stereo before passing out around 3am. Next place I live, nearest neighbors won't complain about gunshots, because they're too far away to hear 'em.

871 In the olden days the fuel mixture enrichment required to operate a cold engine was done by physically restricting (choke) the carburettor intake to increase the vacuum at the jets, sucking more fuel, except for high priced carburettors like Weber and Del Orto. The restriction was controlled by a thermal spring, and opened up as the intake air warmed. There was also a mechanical stop which held the choke closed until the throttle was pressed. This was crude but effective, and cheap, but fuel mixture was excessively rich, which could cause the cylinder walls to be stripped of lubrication, and could cause fuel dilution of the crankcase oil, especially if left unattended (which wouldn't allow the choke to open until the throttle was operated). This all stopped when emission requirements forced manufacturers to use fuel injection systems with much more precise fuel mixture control. So, the advice is good for antique motors with crude carburettors, but doesn't apply to modern engines.
