Re: A thread for mocking politicians

I'm sure that getting everyone talking about Elizabeth Warren's Native American ancestry, and the possible political significance thereof, will work out great for Democrats this November. What better thing to discuss before the midterm elections? Might as well because they sure as hell aren't going...

No. :( *
The last two closed earlier this year. The last one open in the country is in Bend, OR for some reason.

*Not that I, nor anyone I know still went there. It was just fun bragging rights plus Russell Crowe's underoos

Re: Random Observations C.A (306 pages is enough)

Along with the official Sears bankruptcy announcement today they announced that they would close another 142 Sears and KMart locations before the end of the year. The one in my town will NOT be on that list and I am flummoxed by this. This Google maps image shows the problem clear as day. This was t...

Re: Fly the Friendly Skies...

I think we might have finally reached pre-checkception. Over time I've noticed the lines getting longer and longer and flying today the TSA pre-check line was longer than the regular line. Oh well, it was nice while it lasted and at least you avoid the porno-scanner. I almost always avoid the porno...

Re: Putin on the Writs

My understanding is that voting machines are not connected to the internet (or each other), so even when the machines themselves are easily exploited, you have to physically go to the polls to hack them, and also go around to a bunch of them to make any significant difference. Not impossible, but a...

Re: cars and how they get that way

It's not just profit margin, it's volume. Porsche's Cayenne has always been the highest selling vehicle they make, from the minute they started selling them. SUVs are what lots of people want to buy. That's proof we live in a horrible simulation: people are going to Porsche dealerships and buying a...

Are the shrubberies at different heights so you get the two-level effect with the little path down the middle? The shrubberies are different heights. Not by design though. The were just different sizes when we moved in and I've been trimming them up square when they need trimming. The small one rig...

Re: How's the weather? v. 1.1

When I lived in the Gulf Coast of Florida (corner pocket for gulf hurricanes) we wouldn't evacuate unless it was projected to be a high 4+ hurricane. But the thing is our hurricanes were almost always predictable. They'd hit hard, fast and be midway to Tennessee 8 hours after landfall. Florence is p...

I've never lived with a geo thermal system, but my boss has one and as far as I know has not had any trouble with it. From a personal standpoint, I think I'd prefer a bored vertical system over a horizontal system, but that's gonna be more expensive. I'll second this. Had a buddy install one in the...
