    Help Abolish nuclear weapons

    Study your history a little more Jules. Without nukes there is no doubt that the USA and the rest of the West would have gone to war with Russia. No doubt. None.

  4. That's the fundamental problem - even more among the voters than the politicians.

    Movies that messed you up as a kid

    As an adult a movie that really messed me up was Sophies Choice. Nearly 40 years later it still haunts me. Hard to believe that people are capable of that sort of savage cruelty - especially when you realize they are all around us still.

    They're called "Square Drive" in the States. Name had to be changed because of NIH.

    I'm in the middle of a complete refastening job - my second on a fiberglass boat. I end up with 2 styles - Phillips if they show, because they look better and Robertson if they don't because they are a much better head. I like to have the lengths exact so I can use acorn nuts on all exposed fasteners - looks much better and they don't rip your scalp open.

    Bad end to Daytona 500

    IMO the only way to really make racing entertaining again would be to ban sponsorship other than small stuff "Joes Tire Shop" kind of thing - maybe dollar limits on individual sponsors or something. Get it back to amateurs doing it for the love of it. It's the corporate money that has spoiled racing - so what if the numbers for speed, G's etc. have gone into NASA territory? As you say - the closeness is what draws crowds. The best road racing series ever was the Can-Am - look up old pics of it - McLaren and Chapparal "factory" teams towing championship winners on single axle trailers with a crew cab pickup. Now you need a fleet of semis and bus motorhomes and at the top levels your own wind tunnel. I find the most interesting racing these days is Bonneville (all amateur) and amateur drag racing.

    She has put a spell on me , I'm addicted.

    I can't recall ever seeing anything like her at 10 - she was already in Joplin's league. Talk about a prodigy - talent is an amazing thing.

    Bloomberg's complicated taxes

    Re: his taxes - no-one can amass that much money and have tax returns that will pass the scrutiny of ordinary people - even if they had accountants who could get them past the IRS. You'll see his taxes at the same time you see Trumps.
