Re: Fables of the Reconstruction, or Construction Time Again

After that, get architect started on plans and estimates so we can get a construction loan. Wade through all the crap left on the property and decide what stays and what goes. Call a tow company about the car left half on my property and half on the vacant property next door. You can't just get the...

Fables of the Reconstruction, or Construction Time Again

So, 80s music thread title aside, I'm starting a thread to update y'all on the new house build. I may set up a dropbox later for more interesting stuff. Current status: waiting on a termite treatment report and receipt to be able to close Monday. Treatment was done yesterday, so in-house counsel wil...

Re: Debate: Be an Anarchist, Not a Minarchist

Theoretical debates on what we call ourselves! My favorite part of libertarianism! More seriously, as long as we're generally working towards less state interference and towards more individual rights and liberty I'm good with it.

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

I know way too many people with CHLs to think waving a knife around is a behavior that doesn't end with you getting shot.

I am babysitting the wife is phone this afternoon while she sleeps off the outpatient surgery she had this morning. This thing would drive me insane if it was mine. She has notifications turned on for everything. No wonder she doesn’t respond to texts, they’re drowned in the flood.

Re: Food

Made garlic spread the other day. Put as many cloves of garlic as would fit in a ramekin, olive oil to cover, bake at 350 for one hour. Dumped it all in a cup and used the boat motor to turn it into mush. Added some salt to taste. Yum. Next time I'll drain off some of the oil before mixing as it has...

I will say one thing in the flight attendant's defense. All of them having the same name is legit suspicious. Isn't the name on your government issued ID, now required for travel, supposed to match the name on your boarding pass? Shouldn't the system have flagged this well before boarding the plane...

Almost all new construction in the city of Houston is infill townhomes. They squeeze about 6 in on a 10K lot. Shared driveway, barely a yard. Technically single family because they aren't attached.

I remain curious how anybody on the Left thinks Pence would be better for their domestic issues than Trump. Pence is a true believer, which the Donald ain't. Of course, I also see a lot of WHARGARBL about how if Trump gets impeached he takes Pence down with him in some unspecified fashion. I don't s...

Given that Brennan is no longer employed by the United States government, I'm puzzled why he has a security clearance at all. Classified information is distributed on a need to know basis and as a private citizen he doesn't need to know shit. Fucking yank it.

Amazon managed to lose my package. Can they send me another box with the exact same shit in it? No, sadly, they cannot. They can issue me a gift card and I can reorder it. It seems to me there's several steps in here that are unnecessary.

Do all of the Christmas display characters convey with the house? Those are pretty epic. So I take it that you're treating this as a scrape?

Today's run was 80+ degrees, 70% humidity, and 70+ dew point (at 6:30 am, no less). I don't know if I've ever been sweatier. I definitely didn't get any wetter by jumping in the pool afterward. Wait, I thought you were in the desert in AZ? Those numbers seem off. For Arizona, I mean. Your humidity ...
