    Which Trumpalo would you like to punch?

    All the idiots wanting to extract violence on others and other forms of punishment only lead down a road none of us really want.

    holy fuck... beirut

    It all depends on how it was stored for the long period of time. I've seen piles of wood ships in a pile for an extended period catch fire on their own. nature generated head on decomposition. Explosions have happened in silos without any human influence.
  3. And you think anything will be better under Biden?? The same rich assholes run the world. You guys are the Sycophants.

    holy fuck... beirut

    I heard on the news today: 2700 tons were stored since 2014. WTF, since 2014, you could not sell it or use it for farming??? Something does not sound right. Sounds like someone wanted to make a bomb like the Oklahoma City bombing.

    Mast Climber

    One of my crew is a rigger. He has a 4:1 upside down so he is pulling from the top. It has a ratchet and he is up a mast in no time. Then he ties it off.

    UPS and Fed Ex deliver to rural areas. My parents live 30 miles outside a small city in the heartland. Their nearest neighbor is about 1/4 mile away, and yes even amazon shows up, Schwan's too. Get off the rural crap fer crikies sake, it 2020. Politicians have been attacking USPS and Amtrac since they started. The survive as employment agencies and not as functional corporations do. If the Government stopped propping these bureaucracies up, maybe they would get their shit together. Government is in the business to make an environment where private business can flourish. Not prop up failing business. And Yes, GM should have been allowed to fail.

    The F1 2020 thread

    We all know how fast these cars go. I stumbled on to a sports video where someone edited a side by side on the same course comparing F1 and the GT cars. mind boggling how fast the FI look in comparison. Go to the 2:12 mark to see it. It was the archer segment that made me look at the vid, but the comparison was the jewel.

    My first real job was a paper route. Afternoon after school and early on the weekends, rain or shine. Saved enough to get myself a real 10 speed, this was of course around 1972 when I was 14. Now adults drive around in cars delivering the paper, which I do not receive. BM, you are right, the expenses stay the same but who mails letters any more? Bills and payments are electronic. But the Junk slowly drips in. The USPS Employee union has negotiated high pay and steady raises for people who walk around stuffing paper in your box. Defund the USPS and hire more Police. Let Private industry build the better system.

    That is a tough position to be in. When you find the groove, which is really more of an overall feel of the boat from every extension of your body and mind, It is truly amazing and a real game changer in your overall outlook on sailing. I have experienced this feel in both Traditional Sailing and Land Sailing. When the foils line up properly, you will know. At that point, you just hold the tiller in your hand, not grab it, but hold it like.........................................................................I'll let your mind wander, because I cannot find the proper words. It's almost better than sex.
