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...

Re: Microsoft Linux Distro

There are a lot of folks selling Twitter followers, but they are totally meaningless. The number of followers I have built up slowly since I joined Twitter. It only jumped up more than I expected this past year, but I do weed out nearly 25 to 30 per day, which is why my follower count stays fairly s...

Re: Merry Christmas!

I lost a couple of major deals and things that took years to establish back home. One example: I had a lifetime contract with Electro Battery for a new battery every two years for only 26 bucks, regardless of what the current selling price of batteries climbed up to. It didn't matter if I changed ve...

I wish I had met Icey sooner than I did. I really enjoyed her wisdom and profound insight into many things.
She is sorely missed by all of us here at BF!

Re: Microsoft Linux Distro

I think some consider it like a game, just to see how many people they can add to their file. You find something similar on Twitter. Folks with over a million friends, most of them fake. I started using a service to watch for fake accounts, and weeded out thousands. But then I started getting follow...

Re: Merry Christmas!

Try moving down here. It IS a whole different world. Nothing available back home is available down here. The only thing going for it is the temp is usually ten degrees warmer than in St. Loo. Taxes are a lot higher than they were in Creve Coeur too, but without any benefits like we had back home. Li...

Re: Microsoft Linux Distro

True, but it is only listening for the set name such as Alexa, it can be changed to Echo or Computer, but nothing else. Also, it doesn't send anything over WiFi that I can see, until you give it a command other than its name. So like any voice operated device, it is only listening for its name, unti...

Re: Merry Christmas!

I use Lava hand soap after working on something that gets my hands super dirty. Most of the big box hardware stores have it, as well as pharmacies. As you've found out, not so much the grocery stores anymore. Walmart does have it, but not in the grocery section, it is usually in the automotive area ...
