    What gets rid of unwanted phone calls?

    Phone rings. Answer it? I'm on call to save the world but I've been fooled before. You and I know what's coming but I've already bought the extended warranty, supplemental health coverage, pills to make my dick hard for several hours, blood thinners, and whatever it was Joe Namath hawks cuz...

    Simplest Safest Computer for Web Browsing and Word Processing?

    That's all I do so really looking for Plain Jane Reliability. I'm totally bummed by the fight for control between me and MS. Win 11 has momentarily backed off an Edge takeover but dropping MS altogether is OK.  My IdeaPad L340 has been OK but the "upgrade" to 11 has had unintended consequences...

    Non-Stink Penetrant?

    I sprayed something with a WD-40-ish penetrant and am still living with the stink 24 hours later. Anything stinkless?

    Dieting ... Getting Back to Exceptionalism in America

    We burned a lot of calories building a country which is the envy of the world, except for certain neighborhoods in OZ. Now though most of us don't have to work that hard and many oldsters seem to get fatter each and every year without doing any work at all. The activity level slowed but the...

    USFL ... Why?

    It's baseball season. There's a golf tourney. Basketball should have ended in March. But there's a football game on nat'l tv. When the cameras pan it's quite clear there are ... maybe a couple of hundred fans in attendance. This cannot be a money maker. Why is it on nat'l TV at all?

    Dave Chappelle Attacked on Stage

    This is another example of anomie. We'll see these much more frequently from here on.

    Immigration ... Ahora Que?

    Just watching Mayorkas on TV. We all get that umpteen immigrants have been released with the promise to show back up for hearings. Asked how many show up ... short version is that "86%" do. Last I looked, that leaves 14% who do not.  NBC reported last year that apparently an unknown number have...

    Will Rednecks Buy the Ford Lightning?

    I doubt it. Antithetical, really. Doesn't support unlimited oil and gas pipeline projects, and so on. The 2022 Lightning is already sold out but that's for the F-150 which are actually driven by soccer moms these days. Natcherly Chevy is sucking hind teat as usual behind Ford. The F250 will be...

    Plugging Unneeded Thru-hulls

    "Installing" C-Head in the new boat. Existing T-H and backing plates work and look fine. I'm reluctant to disappear them and glass over, and considering just maybe filling with goo that would be easy to remove for someone else in the future if going back to the old stinky way.  Thoughts or...

    Buy Copper

    There will be copper wires under roads recharging EVs. Back in my day the wires were overhead.

    3 Strand Dock Lines

    I know double braid is much nicer to hand but I've found 3 strand's greater stretch is more important than feeling nice momentarily and I don't have that inner need to color coordinate everything. So, replacing dock lines and glanced at West catalog. They have 1/2" economy line priced at $17...

    Fixing American Education

    We've had several threads along this line, generally resulting in disagreement about almost everything except ethnicity discrepancies in readiness to learn new material. I'm posting this note from a college professor but the method here really offers actual promise being applied all the way thru...

    What Will McConnell Do If ?

    Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has been in the hospital for an infection since last Friday, but is expected to be released within the next few days. The 73-year-old, one of the conservative stalwarts on the high court, will miss oral arguments this week. [NPR for Meli] What if Thomas...

    Alternate Dem Nominee 2024?

    Say Biden ages out or something, 2024 is wide open given how unpop VP Harris continues to be. (I bet Harris is sorry she gave up that Senate Sinecure now.)  I'd like to see someone "new" in the candidate pool. It would be great to have an exciting candidate but failing that who do ya think?

    Rudder Repair

    I've got a spot that has likely let water in. I'm not going to fix things til I have to. Q: should I drill a hole to let the water, if any, out? It will still be wet inside. Thoughts?

    Winterizing on the Hard

    Boat hauled with trouble light on engine. 5411 2 cyl diesel raw water cooled. Thinking I should drain residual water in system. Have air tank available and was thinking of  blowing water out but thought I'd check in first. An alternative is a hand pump on an antifreeze jug.  Correct procedure? Thx

    Equal Rights

    Equal Rights for others does not mean fewer rights for you.  It's not pie. One of our posters has this signature, and it sounds good and right and above all, American as all hell, but is it really? I think the Affirmative Action legislation and lawsuits were a clear example of admission to top...
