In Topic: Poison Ivy

I have found that by mixing 5 gallons (20 liters) of Gasoline (Petrol) and 1 gallon (4 liters) of kerosene (paraffin), and liberally spraying the mixture on bothersome plants and then tossing in a lit match generally solves the problem!

And poison ivy won't kill you, it'll just make you wish that you were dead!


NO NO NO.  Grandfather ended up in the hospital for weeks - it got into his lungs and was not good.

Sigh.  The saga continues.  We're trying to replace the main bulkheads (all 3).  Catalina made the silly things bigger than a standard size piece of teak plywood.  And the the prices of teak are crack prices.  $140 for a 4'x8'x1/4" piece, and I need 3 1/2" pieces to get all the grains going the right way.  Holy crap.


I can replace most of the smaller pieces because the local marina is in the process of chopping up an oyster (39'?) and we're stealing bits of teak from there.  Unfortunately it's mostly 3/4".  And according to all the local yards they can't get teak right now.  Whoosh.  So much for getting it done over the 3 day weekend.

I am sure the beaten, stabbed, & dead victim's families are impressed with the math.




If your wife, if you have one, was beaten, stabbed, or killed, the math may not matter. However, as we both don't live

in a back east Democrat run big city, we may survive?



Pure ignorance.  Whether it's my wife, your wife, or my sister's kid doesn't matter one bit.  Irrational morons make decisions based on emotion and anecdote.  Intelligent people make decisions based on data and facts.


I make the decision to drive a car every day despite knowing I may be killed. Rolling myself in a ball and whining like a little bitch because I might die would be stupid.

Actually history seems to agree with him


I think it's unfortunate that people today simply do not have the resolve that we did back in the 40's.  I suspect Vietnam would never have happened the way it did, and I suspect that ISIS would already be gone.


I'm not going to feel sorry about it.  Decisive action to end a war.
