Re: The End is Near

I've bought several laptops over the years so I could do things while away from home. Trouble is, they were all underpowered and a royal PITA to use. Once I accomplished the purpose I bought them for, they ended up in the bottom of a closet until the batteries leaked and ruined the laptop, the carry...

Re: Good Vibrations

So are you saying: You want the US to become a 3rd world country? You want open borders and all the illegals to come in anytime they want and get all the free benefits? You want Sharia Law to replace our Constitution? You want Sanctuary Cities where illegals can be protected from the law? You want t...

Re: Ski By Fire

We had a few nice hill at one school I attended when young. Brought a short pair of ski's with me one day, and ended up breaking one in half before I got to the top of the hill to ski down. Sure glad I wasn't going downhill at breakneck speed when it broke too. I do remember the store would not take...

Re: Merry Christmas!

Anti-lock brake failure is what caused the only serious accident I've ever had. I've been driving for over 55 years, sometimes in some ancient vehicles too. In all that time, I never had a master cylinder completely fail 100%. Had a few I had to pump as the seals wore. Newer cars have dual master cy...

Re: The End is Near

More and more people are doing their on-line stuff using their cell phones now. They only sit down to a computer when they have some more serious work to get done. I notice on TV shows, almost every government type of show, and almost all business type of shows, show them using laptops into the comp...

Re: Good Vibrations

The Dems want to disarm honest citizens, arm criminals, allow all illegal aliens in, and have us pay for everything for them. Trump wants to keep the illegals out, only let those in who do so legally, and stop the flow of drugs into our country. A few years ago, the Dems said they wanted that, but d...

Re: Merry Christmas!

Around 1970 give or take, I stopped to help a family in a large sedan who was stuck in the mud off the edge of the shoulder. He pulled off the road to go around a truck which had stalled. After talking to him through the window I pulled off the road and backed up in front of his car to give him a pu...

Re: Ski By Fire

The flare in the video looked to me like a sodium flare, but I couldn't tell if it was being maneuvered by a drone or not.
I know they said heat seeking in the video, but I doubt that is accurate. My guess is a drone.

Re: The End is Near

We have a shelf full of mystery games that will only work on WinXP. I did get a couple to work using WINE by setting it to WinXP mode. And another couple using that other program like WINE, which I always forget the name of. Tried installing XP in virtual box, and no way to activate it anymore. The ...

Re: Ski By Fire

Now that was cool! Not that I would attempt it myself, even when I was much younger, hi hi. Some guy, I think it was in Georgia, got arrested for using a Drone to carry a Magnesium Flare over a crowded event. He couldn't figure out why they arrested him since the Fire Department uses them all the ti...

I imagine she's driving a company supplied BMW.
It was one of the perks when she went to work for them many eons ago.

He's doing a better job than any president in the past two or three decades.
No complaints at all with Trump, he's doing exactly what we hired him to do!

Re: Good Vibrations

Nearly every awful thing Hillary has done is very well documented, and she is recorded saying most of them on public television herself. I was a Democrat most of my life, even though I didn't like some of the things they did. What affected the little guy was more important to me than what affected t...

Re: Merry Christmas!

Do you remember me telling about the time I was driving my step-daughter to school on Olive Boulevard in HEAVY morning traffic while driving a front-wheel-drive Cadillac Sedan de Ville? Can't get much more weight on those front wheels than in this heavy gunboat. While driving East on Olive, I purpos...

Re: Merry Christmas!

I will agree with you on one fact. Front wheel drive does give an advantage on snow, because of the weight on the front end of the car. By the same token, pick-up trucks have very little weight on the back wheels so they have a harder time driving in snow than most other vehicles. However, once that...

Re: Merry Christmas!

His tires were only a few months old, while mine were close to two years old, so he had the advantage on me there. My car was a 66 Impala, he had a 67 GTO I think, so as far as car weight goes, we were close to the same. We were on a flat, wet, blacktop parking lot, but it had stopped raining. There...

Re: Merry Christmas!

A number of years ago, I switched to Uniroyal in order to get softer rubber tires. But now that the price of tires, even the soft ones, has climbed so high, I'm running a little harder rubber than I like. Compressed air has moisture in it, while nitrogen does not, this alone causes pressure changes ...

Re: Microsoft Linux Distro

Interesting thought there Yogi. There are several celebrities in my family tree, but none close enough that it would matter to me. Will Rogers is in my mom's side of the tree, and a few others I don't recall off hand. Heck, if we go back far enough, we are all related, sorta, we would all be in the ...

Re: Merry Christmas!

I used nitrogen in all of our truck tires, trailer tires, and even in my own cars tires. Also in things like hand trucks, lawn carts, and my lawn mower tires. It's not a scam, and the reason to use nitrogen is simple. Nitrogen don't migrate through the rubber like air does. Tire pressure remains the...
