      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  1. 2019 Ford Mustang Bullit

    f*ck the crossovers. this is a proper shooting brake (and in that color with a manual diesel would be perfection imo)
  2. 2019 Ford Mustang Bullit

    the only redeeming quality in that is that it's a shooting brake, which everyone refuses to build nowadays
  3. so by that definition, i'm not attracted to every woman... does that make me a misogynist? this offensive offense shit really is getting old. what happened to live and let live?
  4. Now, About Cambridge Analytica....

    these guys seem legit...
  5. So Much For Fiscal Responsibility

    am i understanding you correctly that you're equating writing or speaking to support a position/provide influence with paying directly for influence?
  6. So Much For Fiscal Responsibility

    sorry for the incorrect stat, $11.5b
  7. So Much For Fiscal Responsibility

    as will i sol
  8. So Much For Fiscal Responsibility

    or in another way of equating the battle of lobbying vs. advocacy: money talks and bullshit walks WE should be the voice that washington hears
  9. So Much For Fiscal Responsibility

    advocacy defined is "public support for or recommendation of a particular cause or policy." so it seems that the line between that and lobbying is drawn at the money spent. something like $300+ billion spent in 2017 by lobbyists if i'm remembering the correct stat. advocate positions and issues all you want but don't let industries, companies, etc buy influence
  10. So Much For Fiscal Responsibility

    and they laughed and laughed?
  11. So Much For Fiscal Responsibility

    but the lobbyists will always back a(nother) candidate. as long as politics are treated like a business, we will not see fiscal responsibility. to answer your question of what do we do, i don't have a for certain answer. i believe a good start would be term limits and an even better solution is to take the money out of politics. for our elected officials to govern in our best interest, we have to always come first
  12. So Much For Fiscal Responsibility

    honest question, when was the last time that happened? follow up question, is it even possible with current special interest/lobbying rules? i hate to sound pessimistic, but my initial thought was "wish in one hand and shit in the other and see which one fills up"
  13. Chicken Chute

    my intro to big boats was a 1/4 tonner and i distinctly remember two things; dad saying to my 8 year old self "STAY THE FUCK AWAY FROM THE LOADED GUY" (just like i wrote it) and the sound said guy would make under tension. oh, and the trimmer with the missing finger tip...
  14. what you need is readily available and called hydrophylic grout. it's available in a powder form (simple) or inject-able (more complex). with the grout, you mix it per the ratio described, and apply as a topcoat slurry/paste. when water touches it, it begins to crystallize and seal it's own voids. can be applied directly to voids while leaks are evident or to dry "known" leak spots. depending on severity of leak, sometimes multiple applications over several days are required to fully abate the leak xypex is the one we use most often, though other products are available... https://www.whitecap.com/shop/wc/p/xypex-crystalline-waterproofing-concentrate-20-lb-59770158?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI_POkuZzY2QIVj19-Ch2t_gUaEAAYASAAEgKiYfD_BwE
