  1. Because there is nothing to say. It has all been said. These events will continue to happen until society collectively says 'enough' and is willing to make the fundamental and extensive changes necessary.
  2. From what I understand, the GOP is the party of Trump. Burning down a political party will do nothing when so many millions are blindly loyal to TFG.
  3. "Hey, check out my kitchen renovation." "Let's go to the mall!". "If it is Saturday, it must be Home Depot day!" "Ooooh....let's go to the Mega-Plex to see the latest from Hollywood." "Why yes I do enjoy eating out at national chain restaurants."
  4. All excellent advice above and the C&C 25 is a great boat. I owned one for 8 or 9 years. I would further suggest posting an ad at the local sailing organization looking for some experienced person to accompany you for a few sails. There may be retired folks who are happy to teach and have an opportunity to be on the water. The C&C 25 is very forgiving. An easy boat to learn to sail and as you get better you will appreciate it even more.
  5. Slightly off topic...... but my brother-in-law recently did a major renovation to his house. He hired a designer to co-ordinate colours, art, etc. When the reno work was finished, the designer filled the little nick-nack shelves with a bunch of stuff from garage sales and Ikea. I thought.... what a shame. I like to surround myself with stuff that reminds me of things in my life, travels, work, etc. I have a bunch of those things. How sad that your life is so shallow that you 'decorate' with other people's memories. So fix up that old stuff and keep it around. That is the s
  6. In the article the selling feature of Texas seems to be big houses in sprawling subdivisions where everyone drives everywhere. I can't imagine anything less appealing. I live in a neighbourhood where I can walk or bicycle just about everywhere I need to go. What is the appeal of sprawling suburbs and 'car culture'? I don't get it at all.
  7. I am guessing he is not going to Harvard.....
  8. I will always remember the first time I heard "Rock Lobster" by the B-52s.
  9. I was speaking to a colleague in Colorado the other day. He was describing a bunch of military jets landing in formation at the local airport. Apparently he had never seen this before. I said it was bunch of Republican pilots flying planes from Democrat-controlled states to Republican-controlled states as the first phase of the next civil war. The Confederate Air Force was forming up. My colleague was not amused at my suggestion.
  10. Again, I am shocked. Have they no shame? Republicans Blame Biden for Pandemic’s Persistence Republicans have fought mask requirements and vaccine mandates for months, but as coronavirus infections again rise, they are blaming the president for failing to end the health crisis. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/11/24/us/politics/republicans-biden-coronavirus.html The same guys who BLOCKED public health measures refuse to accept any responsibility and pass blame to someone else. How can anyone support these people? C'mon USA, get it together.
  11. I have often thought that I would love one of those clocks for my home office..... ticking away and chiming the time using bells and watch systems. Please spend the money to get your clock fixed properly. Keep it forever. In your will, make sure it goes to someone that will appreciate it. You have a beautifully made instrument that is a bit of a mechanical wonder. Cherish it. With the right care, it could last a very long time.
  12. A nuclear weapons program is exorbitantly expensive. As is a the program for nuclear powered vessels.
  13. The takeaway I get from that video is that the USA has an extreme right wing part and a right wing party.
  14. I have been to the USA five times in the past two years for work assignments (Georgia, Maryland, Nevada and twice California). These assignments are typically 2 - 5 weeks in duration. At each location, I was surprised by the extent of homelessness and poverty.
  15. It is. I recommend the book. The book offers some insights into the "prison industrial" complex and discusses how (sadly, too often) prisons have become warehouses for the mentally ill. Much of the social commentary in the book was lost in the show.
  16. Same here. I heard about the 1000 Days and Googled "Is Reid Stowe wack-a-doodle?" or something like that. That brought me here.
  17. There is a guy over on fixit anarchy building pipe berths. Can you build pipe berths with conduit?
  18. You may find conduit not very strong for pipe clamps. All of my pipe clamps use heavy iron plumbing pipe threaded at one end.
  19. 2,000 new cases per day and 126 deaths per day. Way to go, Florida.
  20. https://ig.ft.com/coronavirus-chart/?areas=usa&areas=gbr&areasRegional=usfl&cumulative=0&logScale=1&per100K=0&startDate=2020-09-01&values=cases
  21. I simply find this baffling that so many people support TFG. A Quinnipiac University poll conducted Oct. 15-18 found Trump has an 86 percent favorable rating and just a 10 percent unfavorable rating among Republican adults. And he already dominates early polls of the 2024 Republican primary. A Morning Consult/Politico survey from Oct. 8-11 found that 47 percent of Republican voters would vote for Trump; no other candidate was above 13 percent. And while you should certainly take such an early primary poll with a grain of salt, if Trump is still polling that high come 2023, it act
  22. When I was in the Navy, to practice shooting the guns the Air Force would tow targets past the ship. Yes, they used a really long tow rope. Occasionally the aircraft would message the ship: "I am towing the target not pushing it."
