    1917-2017 The End of the American Century

    If Trump wins a second term I'd say that's the end of the USA.

    I think you guys are giving him WAY too much credit.

    16 to vote?

    You still have 21 as the drinking age? Time you joined the Third Millennium.

    I was thinking more about 15th trimester in some cases here.

    For a second I thought you were talking about the Republicans.

    Cheating on USMC admissions test

    That ASVAB test level is required just to be a grunt? Times have changed. Remember when joining the military was sometimes given as an alternative to a prison sentence for young guys?

    Cheating on USMC admissions test

    This thread reminds me of the Beyond the Fringe bit about the coal mining exam. "They only ask you one question" "They say "Who are you?" "And I got 75% on that".

    Deal Killers?

    Not true - I have made a little money on all but one of my boats - an unfinished project was the only one I didn't On one of them I more than doubled my money. Doing the work yourself and judicious shopping are the keys.

    How to finish wood plugs in trim?

    If you're chiseling them off, be sure to chisel from the low point of the grain towards the high point - if you do it the other way you are almost certain to end up with a recessed area below the surrounding wood. Use an artists brush to touch up the varnish on the plugs afterwards. Also, follow El B's excellent advice

    Were the locals out with torches and pitchforks when she was being built in PT?

    I thought she looked like Nightcrawler without a sprit. Great looking boat.

    That's turpentine, not varnish.

    Didn't on my last boat when I changed to LED. Just got brighter.

    Well I could at least get behind some post natal abortions.

    Show your boat sailing thread

    It'll shrink a fair bit once you are used to it.

    Oh...No !

    I didn't know they required inclining tests for RC boats.

    Deal Killers?

    That's me too. The second corollary to that is "As long as we're.....we might as well". If you like the work and get the boat at the right price it's O/K. If you want to go sailing and are looking for a cheap route to that, it's not. I've learned through hard experience that there is a difference between having the ability to do those things and having the capability to get them done. Don't fall in love with a project boat unless it's unique - they made hundreds of CS 33's.

    Yeah, Wyoming is going to go it alone. Is there really no bottom to your slide into stupidity?

    They turned on the "Engine Failsafe Mode" warning light in my car last week. Fuckers.
