    I recently did some searching for opinion pieces re the cultural changes in America and I found this one that may provide some clues as to why some boys become killers.

    I don't think the market penetration is low here as there seem to be plenty of Teslas registered in the area. I just hadn't noticed any Model 3s until one was literally right in front of me at a stop...

    While you make many good points I think some of your points re guns are a little misguided. First of all "Saturday night special" is not a type of gun but rather a marketing strategy for gun control....

    The problem is that there's a bounty system culture in place that rewards "productivity" whether it's a traffic cop writing more tickets than justified, a game warden hoping to collect the most...

    I've changed my opinion and now think it would be worth the digging to expose a straight section of pipe. The standard rubber couplers get a much better fit on a straight section. I would then use...

    Just as a side note I saw my first Model 3 a couple weeks ago. I was behind it in traffic and barely noticed it until I spotted the "EV" license plate at a stoplight. I got a better look at it as it...

    Here's a link to a collection that lists many incidents that appear tied to these drugs.

    Here's a page from that site specifically dedicated to spree killings

    I'll try to find some more links later.

    Mass shootings of this type are extremely rare but many think they would be even rarer if there were better monitoring for dangerous side effects of these...

    The sad part is that so many believe these scare stories. Vast wastelands, entire cities underwater and every other apocalyptic scenario they can conjure.

    You can also use a rubber sanding drum in a drill with an inside out sanding belt for final polish. Also, if I were doing this and I had any doubts I would apply a good polymer sealant before sliding...

    Commercial case prep tools use small 120v gear motors. IMO a treadmill motor would be WAY overkill.

    I totally disagree. Over here supermarket charging is meant only for customers while actually shopping and average working person goes only once a week or so.

    I'll say it again.

    For most people...

    It was not you I was accusing of throwing insults. It was Ries, with his comment about "silly paranoia" while directly responding to a post by me.

    In the same post I added that I disagreed with...

    First of all I never said "forced conversion" but simply that some were being a little overaggressive in trying to sell the rest of us on the idea that we should all go out and buy an electric. I...

    I would agree that sending a registered letter is a good suggestion. I was told by an attorney years ago that in the legal world phone calls "never happened" as conversations can be denied and I...

    And there's the rub. While hybrids (and especially plug-in hybrids) work extremely well with today's technology and infrastructure, a segment of the population is trying to sell us on the idea of...

    If we REALLY want to do something about mass shootings we need to look at WHY they happen rather than focus on how they are carried out.

    Here’s what a survivor of one such event has to say about...

    The Monotrol was designed to fill some customers' needs. I've actually had some time on them and while at first it seems very awkward you get used to it with practice. I'm not a fan of them but for...

    IMO this is more publicity stunt than practical plan for the near future. I looked at several things including the link Trboatworks provided for the electric trainer.

    I'm no fan of facebook (and never joined) but in this case I think the problem is no real intellectual property basis. Iris diaphragms have been around for so long that the tool is probably...

    Yale and Hyster are made in the same factories or at least used to be.

    Both are usually solid workhorses IF set up and maintained properly. The inching function requires careful adjustment and...

    Yes. The strategy we've seen in Mass. has been to keep creating new classes of prohibited person. The 1998 law stripped something like 2/3 of existing licensees (FID and LTC) of their licenses. Many...
