      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.

Fucking Burrrrrrrrrr Winter 2017-2018

Recommended Posts

It's a good morning to observe a funny FL thing.

FAWN01-05-18.jpg

20's in the panhandle? That's January. Residents will grumble but deal.

40 in Miami? THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END!!!!

Miami residents will put on more layers than people in Maine usually need to go outside today.

(And that includes those of us who grew up in Miami but have left.)

I could have written that script. Poor bugger needs to get out, if you have cabin fever now it's going to be hideous in February.

It was cold enough yesterday (-4F) that my garage door opener started working erratically. Had to pull the beverages in from the garage. Heat wave on Monday, 37.

Get over it.  It's 9F outside, blowing 21+, windchill -10F, I'm going snowshoeing and will have a blast.  Yesterday I got hot hiking and took off my gloves for the last 10 minutes.  If you exert you stay warm.

Is that legal in your state? Most of the hunters I knew in Pennsylvania preferred to shoot them.  I suppose it's humane if you do it right and their neck snaps right away.

I lost 300' of PVC irrigation pipe, and sprinkler stands yesterday morning.... Not pretty.

 (And no, I wasn't the idiot who used PVC for irrigation pipe. It was here when I bought the place. Slowly replacing it w/ ABS as it fails. )

Because the water is used to keep the trees/fruit from freezing.

Clearly, the cold was more powerful than the water in this case. I'm used to losing a sprinkler head or a ball valve or 2 every year. I just found another shot valve in a completely different system. (3 wells, 4 different "branches") Off to the store I go to get 12 ball valves, a box of threaded ends, and assorted couplings..... I have a pile of pipe that was left here by the previous owner.

I watched a crow land on a 5' tall stand pipe sprinkler head last year. It (the pvc stand pipe, not the crow) snapped off right above the ball valve.

I think it was 60 minutes, that showed a scene in Antarctica, where a bunch of Scientists and Researchers, of both sexes, climb bare ass naked, out of a steaming Hot Tub, and run outside in very low sub zero temps for short time. Those fuckers are crazy!!!

i fucking hate pvc,    just found a 4" ball valve that shattered on the rainwater collection system, fortunately it was on an overflow so no loss of water, but I won't be able to collect any...  the important thing is to protect the pump, it's sitting in a shed where  i run a 60w incandescent 24/7 till it warms up.

When I win powerball, I will replace all PVC plumbing, and irrigation with either ABS, or bronze/copper. I will also hire an immigrant caretaker @ $15.00 PMH plus room and board. I will also move back to the Caribbean for two quarters of the year.

I got up and went outside at about 3AM to check the faucets on out piling raised fish shack. Wind just flows right under it and the house itself is pretty drafty. I had the central heat turned off and just one of those fake fireplace electric heaters on in the bedroom and slept great. Outside it was sleeting pretty good and accumulating at a pretty good rate. Might have been some light snow mixed in but I wasn't going to stick around to see. Here is what greeted me at 10 AM. I might have to go find and old flip flop to use as my window ice scraper!

Funny thing is that about 6 counties and Mobile have closed the schools, made that decision yesterday! I remember having a snow cave in a 8' tall snow drift on the side of the road to wait for the school bus when I lived in Rochester NY. Kids are pussies these days, and yes I had to walk uphill both ways to the bus stop...  Wearing these,

If you have rubbing alcohol and a squirt bottle, just put a 50/50 mix of rubbing alcohol and water into the bottle and spray away. It'll melt that in no time.

Shit Rasper, y'all were lucky. Just a little to the west, in NW Pennsylvania we had to walk uphill both ways to school, no buses, and barefoot!  If we were real lucky our mother let us wear pants instead of shorts, but that didn't happen too often.

These damn kids nowadays have no idea how good they have it.
