      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. Fuck you im sick anarchy

    Sack up: we've all been there. NyQuil, cough syrup, Vit D, C and E. Fluids. Chicken soup. Most importantly - sleep. Don't let yourself get run down.

    Hit a median: a freakin' curb. Had to be a lot of speed/ alcohol involved. Fox Gnus: http://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/01/14/drugged-driver-crashes-car-into-second-story-california-building-officials-say.html Impressive air time, doooooood!

    Miss it yet, Point? Orange County Fire Authority is prolly still going "WTF?"

    I've listened to a couple of combat medics (NOT formal training!) They were advocates for very aggressive use of tourniquets. Especially in a mass casualty incident. They both carried two tourniquets everywhere they went - much more likely to use a tourniquet than a gun. Supposedly, the Las Vegas shooting could have been much, much worse except for the civi's enthusiastic use of tourniquets.

    Good thoughts, thanks. I'm way out of cert, but in my Emgr training for the bomber company the instructor basically said tighten it until the victim screams. Then tighten it some more. He got trained up in Gulf War I.

    PB, can you recommend a tourniquet for use by a dirty civi? Compact, suitable for daily carry, easy to use, won't break the bank, and most importantly: effective?

    The Risk/ Reward cost matrix. Always a fun one. The Wi-Fe used to give me all sorts of crap about my preps -- until we had to ride out a hurricane. Then she was mighty glad she thought of all that stuff.

    Go see Darkest Hour. Never, never, NEVER surrender! In the event of a miss or a fizzle, over-pressure won't be that great and the trades will be blowing the crap back to the land of the bad haircuts. But flying glass will kill or blind you. Duck and cover is VERY applicable.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ground-Based_Midcourse_Defense It's based in Alaska to protect CONUS from Chinese/ NorK missiles. I don't think its coverage extends to Hawaii: the orbital dynamics are all wrong. You're boned. However, the Navy does have an exo-atmosphere kill vehicle for their Standard missiles. And the Air Force is experimenting with using the F-22 and its AIM-120 AMRAAMs to shoot down NorK missiles during their boost phase. However, the Pentagon has said that the probabilities of these types of intercepts means you're boned. But doooood, listen to your wife. These are NorK missiles, gawd knows where they could end up. My bet is that they'll end up nuking the gay whales offshore east side. And the yields would be pretty damn low. When our guys looked at the Soviet missileski's after the wall came down, the common belief was that Canada and Greenland would have been flat, black and glassy in a nuclear war. The Commie delivery systems worked no better than their economic ones. Here yah go if you want to bone up. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Missile_defense Looks like I've got to get back to reading Aviation Leak: there's a lot that's been happening.
  11. Darwin strikes again

    Could the media be over-hyping this.......? No! You'd think I'd learn.
  12. Darwin strikes again

    Don't know about that... Here in Floriduh, a mother was cleaning up her son's stuff after he shuffled off this mortal coil via an overdose. She got some powder on her hands.... and died. Fentanyl. We also had a couple of local cops stone themselves after unknowingly getting fentanyl on their hands while cuffing and stuffing a druggie. Darwin is harvesting lots of dopers around here with fentanyl and carfentanil laced heroine. You'd think they'd learn.
  13. Heating the new workshop, options?

    This is my guncave. The cabinets and work benches are from Serville Classics via Sam's Club. Good stuff, well made, strong, and not too expensive. If you've got a Sam's Club nearby, you can take a look at the line. If not, they ship it for free from their website: https://www.samsclub.com/sams/search/searchResults.jsp?searchCategoryId=all&searchTerm=serville&fromHome=yes&_requestid=2426942 And.... yes the photo sucks and the bench is a cluttered fiasco: I'm still putting the mancave together. Next is a Mitsubishi split unit air conditioning system. Then a lock on the door. Then I can have some quiet. BTW: I'm getting Charlotte the 6' x 2' Adjustable Work Bench for Christmas. It'll be perfect for her crafts.
