    diy cooler?

    I randomly found this on Amazon and the reviews are better than all the other Yeti clones. https://www.amazon.com/Driftsun-Performance-Roto-Molded-Commercial-Insulated/dp/B073R2C26Z/ref=sr_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=Driftsun+cooler&qid=1594142450&sr=8-4
  2. Send her a pack of batteries, she'll get over it.

    diy cooler?

    Pro tip: If you freeze a ton of water bottles, they will keep the food cold but not wet and then you can drink the cold water when it melts Anyone ever try one of the Engl (sp??) 12 volt coolers?

    Trump quits Fox for the 145th time

    https://www.huffpost.com/entry/trump-quits-fox-news_n_5f02ae8fc5b6acab28527a59 President Donald Trump said he’s done with Fox News after the network on Sunday showed him trailing former Vice President Joe Biden in the polls. Trump claimed he was leading in “real polls” but did not cite any. I swear I have read this about once a month for ages What bugs me is not that Fox News might actually try and report facts every now and again to see what happens, but that the President of the USA even has a tame network to do his bidding. There was a time when announcing that one network is not reporting what you want and thus you are picking another one was a thing a president just would not do. Besides for everything else, is blatant pimping of a commercial operation a thing now I guess this is like bitching that Hitler parked in a handicapped space, but it just struck me that no one even pretends anymore.

    Lighting? Do you mean lightning? Plenty of that here, so that wouldn't be a huge change.

    Very cool So how is Bocca as a place to hang out? I am so tempted some days to cram as much food and gas as I can in the boat and GTFO.

    After Truth: Disinformation and the Cost of Fake News

    Teddy Roosevelt dealt with a smear campaign trying to convince people he was gay. Sample quote from back in the day: One newspaper even asked if he was “one of those men ‘given to sucking the knob of an ivory cane.’” Didn't the whole Spanish-American war get ginned up by a paper looking for something exciting to write about?

    Epstein: the Deafening Silence

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Over–under An over–under or over/under (O/U) bet is a wager in which a sportsbook will predict a number for a statistic in a given game[1] (usually the combined score of the two teams), and bettors wager that the actual number in the game will be either higher or lower than that number.[ So you pick a date and bet she makes it that long or doesn't make it that long

    Have Torqueedo Outboards Come of Age Yet

    Through a chain of several bad decisions, I had to go about a half mile in December at night in my Dyer with the wind kicking to 40+. I kept saying to myself "DO NOT SCREW THIS UP". I was doing at least hull speed if not more dragging the oars to slow down and steer. I really needed to make the turn in the creek into my slip, missing it mean a trip all the way across the Severn to the far side and much much larger waves Knowing a capsize would be the end of this trip concentrated the mind and I made the turn

    This is a civil case, the courts had no business trying to prevent publication in the first place. Trump v Trump will be the 21st century Jarndyce v Jarndyce
