    Nonsense! Vietnam is a one-party state and true democracy is impssible under such conditions.

    Please show even one post where "he" had anything good to say about America. Everything is negative form the first settlers to current day leaders and police. And on the latter subject EG always...

    And it cracks me up when EG says "this American" because not only is his/or her base in China but they are clearly anti-U.S. and pro-China. If they really are American born IMO they are a filthy...

    I've been giving myself a weekly trim with a razor comb that I've had for a couple of years and a disposable razor before I chuck it. I've been "touching up" in between haircuts whenever I was too...

    Then your perspective is wrong. Not only China but also Cuba, North Korea, Vietnam, and Laos are officially communist. China's "capitalist revolution" was actually financed by U.S. investor money....

    Not true. Elderly neighbor said a friend of hers in an Assisted Living facility "caught the virus". When I asked how she fared with the disease it turns out she never actually got sick but merely...

    No doubt you missed my posts in other threads but I've not only referenced "War is a Racket" by former Marine General Smedley Butler but also commented on the truisms in the Jackson Brown song Lives...

    When I bought my 25-gallon tank compressor many years ago I quickly decided that a fiddly petcock under the damn thing would lead to it not being properly drained. So I installed an elbow and a steel...

    Interesting that you mention "hollow wire". Many years ago we were making plasma systems for IC processing and water cooled some of the electronics. While the copper tubes were not intended to carry...

    The main question is what does a positive test really mean?

    Is it really proof that a person has actually been exposed to Covid-19 or could the test be responding to similar but essentially...

    I think what he was actually doing was making a homemade thread chaser rather than a tap. A thread chaser tends to push the metal back into place as much as it cuts. I have a couple of commercially...

    He hasn't been elected YET. There is still hope the voters will not elect a now senile jackass with a lifelong habit of idiotic statements and actions.

    Broken wire perhaps?

    The wiring between the base and the platform controls is a major weak point on scissor lifts. The dealer may be stumped because it is an unusual failure in this case they...
