    Don't mess with Grandpa if he rescues you from drowning.

    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-60826311 74 yo man shot 29yo man after rescuing him.   And then his girlfriend pushed him back into the water, and was fished out a second time. Why do I think there is a lot more to this story. No word on the fate of the jetski.

    Dieletric grease, yes or no?

    Ok,  I'm having corrosion problems with connections.  Boat is stored where it gets salt water spray regularly.  Lots of spray. I use the red CRC spray on battery terminals about 2x per year. All the other accessible bus bars, starter terminals and a myriad of other exposed connections have...

    Hackers and Ransomware

    I'm sort of surprised, and not at the same time, that our all powerful governments around the world can't squash these cockroaches. Malaise?  Are they in on it?  Are they all sponsored actors? From granny getting all her savings wiped out to pipeline operators... There is a special place in...

    A country border dispute resolved without war, conflict or strife

    I got a chuckle over this story. I could totally see grandpa taking care of a problem this way. Problem solved!    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-56978344

    Anyone we know go missing in Darwin Australia recently?

    I bet it was one of the regulars posting here on SA. But who? Well, at least they are found now, and no longer feeding mosquitos.   https://www.bbc.com/news/world-australia-55545608

    I'm in the market for a long bed pickup for work 10-15k

    V8 Gas  Full size 4x4 PU Longbed Standard Cab (these seem hard to find) Steel wheels are ok No lift or mods. Canopy I hear GM has pretty much dropped the ball on reliability. Clean hates his Dodge So sort of left with Ford. Ford is my tentative preference.  What years to avoid?

    US Postal Service USPS

    Hey, have any of you stopped getting mail? All of a sudden mail seems to have stopped.  Even junk mail. Seems really strange. Yes I know that the USPS is having issues.  They have cut overtime and slowing down. Seems really odd to not get ANY junk for 3 delivery days in a row.  (no, it is...

    Paywall free news sources of value?

    Having a lively debate during the Covid quarantine about USA and world politics, and I've become quite disillusioned with the news sources at my disposal. CNN and Fox seem more like infotainment/pandering.  CNN is particularly bad as it fails to report anything not helping their agenda...

    Kayak, Sit in or on?

    Looking for a second kayak for lakes and calm waters.  We have one sit in 10 ft plastic cheap kayak that works well.  It is light and sturdy, and that is a priority. Lifetime sells cheap (dare I say disposable) kayaks at walmart if you can find them for $200 for a sit in.  Seems ok. I've never...

    Hangovers are now an "illness"

    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-49802749 Just wait till the French embrace this concept.   Paid time off for hangovers. Seems reasonable.  I vote for 2 days off at a minimum.  In home care may be required.

    Sticker placement on hull for slings

    Ok.  Some debate here.  Do the stickers indicating where the lifting slings get placed on the hull go aft of where the slings get placed?  Or exactly where the slings go (so covering the sticker)
