THE QUOTES OF THE DAY


Quote I

"You know, sometimes politicians who are stuck in Washington, and don't take the time to get out, don't get out to where real people live and play and work, they lose touch with the reality of where the heartbeat of our country is," she told a crowd at a recent campaign rally. "The heartbeat of our country, it's certainly not in Washington, D.C. The heartbeat of our country is in rooms like this. In communities like yours all across this country, standing up and saying it is time now for our voices to be heard." Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI)


Quote II

People are excited about Buttigieg. He's fresh, he's new. He's gay. He's a serviceman. He served in Afghanistan. He's married, and a very, I mean unless you are a homophobe, he's married in a very traditional marriage, you know? Totally monogamous, and that should appeal to the silent majority, whoever they are. Joy Behar


Quote III

For generations, our community has been fed empty promises by Democratic candidates who pledged to fight for minorities and help the African-American community, only to ignore us after rising to power. Herman Cain


Quote IV

If a gay man doesn’t want to have sex with someone who has a vagina and a lesbian doesn’t want to have sex with someone who has a dick, they are not being transphobic. They’re being — how shall I put this? — gay. Andrew Sullivan

Hillary Clinton Nacho President. And her "foundation" is hemorrhaging like the stuck pig she is.

This is evidenced nowhere more in the fact that the Clinton Foundation has gone from turning over a revenue of almost $400 million in 2013, to actually LOSING almost $33 million since Donald Trump wiped the floor with Hillary in 2016.

Newly released tax records show that the foundation reported a loss of almost $17 million in 2018, to add to the net loss of $16.1 million the previous year in 2017.

The numbers don’t lie.

Total revenue reported for 2018 was just $30.7 million, less than a tenth of what was being pulled in While Hillary was Secretary of State.


So when does the Wicked Witch of The North East hit us deplorables taxpayers up for a bailout?

The first male birth control is going to hurt. Of course it is.

Would men endure a shot in the penis to prevent pregnancy? Indian researchers think so.

The Indian Council of Medical Research, a government-funded biomedical research agency, has successfully completed a clinical trial on an injectable male contraceptive, the Hindustan Times reported.

“The product is ready, with only regulatory approvals pending [from the government],” Dr. R.S. Sharma, senior scientist with ICMR, told the local news outlet. “The trials are over, including extended, Phase 3 clinical trials for which 303 candidates were recruited with a 97.3% success rate and no reported side effects. The product can safely be called the world’s first male contraceptive.”

The birth control method, which lasts approximately 13 years, involves injecting a polymer, called styrene maleic anhydride, into the vas deferens, effectively blocking sperm from leaving the testicles. The shot, preceded by a dose of local anesthesia, is designed to supplant a traditional vasectomy.

Daily cannabis use lowers odds of using illicit opioids among people who have chronic pain

For those using illicit opioids to manage their chronic pain, cannabis may be a beneficial -- and a less dangerous -- alternative, according to new research from the BC Centre on Substance Use (BCCSU)

SMOD, is it on its way?

NASA is currently tracking three near-Earth objects (NEOs) due to fly past the Earth on November 20. Worryingly, two of the three were only spotted this past weekend, once again raising tensions over planetary defense.
The first of Wednesday’s cosmic flybys and the largest, measuring 157.5ft to 360.8ft (48 to 110 meters) across, will be asteroid 2019 UK6, which will speed past at approximately 6.20am GMT (1.20am EDT). It is 2019 UK6 we had most prior warning about, as it was first observed on October 24.

NEO 2019 UK6 is an Amor asteroid, which that goes around the Sun and the Earth, occasionally, but very rarely, crossing Earth's path. Apollo asteroids, on the other hand, intersect with Earth’s orbit as the planet travels around the Sun.

Protesters are planners. Who knew?

Right now: activists with @XRebelDC @ExtinctionR are taking supplements in preparation for an attempted hunger strike at Nancy Pelosi’s office.

The #ExtinctionRebellion activists say they’ll be demanding a sit-down meeting with Pelosi where they will push her on climate action.


The ONT's advice? 66 days of hunger strike will win you a good number of converts. Go for it.

Lost and found. Odd family reunion.

GLENS FALLS, N.Y. (CNN) After years of not hearing from a Glens Falls, New York, man, Rick Hazelton's family had him legally declared dead.


But a friend of Hazelton wanted answers and with the help of a detective was able to track down Hazelton.

He found out that Hazelton was not dead, but rather he had moved around the country.

"One day I got a letter in the mail that said, 'You're being investigated in a missing persons report.' And I thought, 'That can't be right, I'm not missing. This has gotta be a mistake,'" said Hazelton.

Hazelton says that cellphones and social media just weren't around back then and so he just fell out of touch with friends and family.

Now, 33 years later, he's back in touch with those who love him and is spending Thanksgiving in New York.

If you remove a GPS monitoring device on your car and remove it, are you a thief?

Back in 2012, the US Supreme Court ruled that it's illegal for the police to attach a GPS tracking device to someone's car without a warrant. But what if you find a GPS tracking device on your car? Can you remove it?

A little more than a year ago, the state of Indiana charged a suspected drug dealer with theft for removing a government-owned GPS tracking device from his SUV. This month, the state's Supreme Court began considering the case, and some justices seemed skeptical of the government's argument.

"I'm really struggling with how is that theft," said Justice Steven David during recent oral arguments.

Cookies & Cream, good stuff. Rocky Road, simply delicious. Insect chip and mint? Nope, not going to eat it.

Oh ice cream, how I love you! Sometimes ice cream just really hits the spot, especially when you’ve had a really long day or it’s really hot outside. But have you thought about what’s going to happen to food, and more importantly ice cream, when there is a boom in population? Experts estimate that there will be approximately 11 billion people on our planet by the end of the century. This in turn may lead to a severe food shortage. Scientists have mentioned before that we may need to rely on bugs in order to survive in the future. They’re cheap and an easy protein that can help us get through the day. The Economist decided to take this to another level. We all know that bugs are full of protein, fiber, and even calcium. They are inexpensive and more sustainable than our typical animal proteins like beef. The Economist stated, “not having to look at bugs, and emphasizing the environmental benefits might make the idea of eating insects a bit more palatable.” Well check out their recent experiment that was conducted in Canary Wharf in London.

"Well, Doctor, what have we got—a Republic or a Monarchy?"
"A Republic, if you can keep it."

The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) recently held its 25th Annual Gala in Washington, D.C, in which CAIR’s executive director announced a goal of pushing more Islamists into Congress. As the Investigative Project on Terrorism reports, CAIR’s executive director Nihad Awad shares the “formula” he believes will secure Islamists greater political power:

Rolling Stone: Men Who Abstain From Porn Are Dangerous Alt-Righters

There’s a scene in The Big Lebowski in which The Dude bitterly objects that the pornographer Jackie Treehorn, viewed by the local sheriff as an upstanding citizen who “draws a lot of water” in Malibu, “treats objects like women, man.” Lazy, inarticulate stoner though The Dude may be, even he understands that porn is a shady business and that those who produce it are a detriment to society.

To read Rolling Stone, though, you’d think these people were providing a valuable public service. In a recent piece by EJ Dickson, the expert witness is Dr. David Ley, a “clinical psychologist and sex therapist” who “has partnered with the [pornographic] cam website Stripchat” to spread the word about “sexual health.” The story also includes interviews with the vice presidents of two different porn sites, an embedded tweet about the supposed health benefits of chronic masturbation, and – to wrap it up – a “comforting message” from an “adult performer and director.” They all want you to know that porn won’t hurt you or anyone else. After all, everyone is watching it.

A segment on Trevor Noah’s Daily Show takes it a step further, trotting out the same psychologist from the Rolling Stone piece to explain that porn and masturbation make “a lot of really good things happen in your body and your brain” and that “people who watch more pornography…are more feminist” and have “more egalitarian values.” The correspondent responds with a joke – delivered without a trace of self-awareness – about how watching a 95-on-1 gang bang made him realize that “women have it so hard.”

Sh!t happens. Unfortunately sometimes it takes many years for people to learn that.

Unfortunately, for Jake Mesar, the implications of his injury were a bit more severe — and yet, the implications of his lawsuit could have essentially ended youth sports as we know it if he had succeeded.

Yes, the repercussions of what happened were long-lasting and brutal. His lawsuit, however, was still insupportable and dangerous, something that would have been risible had the ramifications not been so serious. In the process, it cost a teacher years of his life in a courtroom as well as his reputation.

In 2012, according to NJ Advance Media, middle school teacher John Suk, coaching the junior varsity baseball team at Bound Brook High School in New Jersey, ordered Mesar to slide into third while his team was leading 6-0 in a game at Gill St. Bernard’s School in order to stretch a hit into a triple. Mesar would roll his ankle, which ended with a serious break.

Should medical patient confidentiality rules apply with parents and their children?

A woman who was not informed that her father had a fatal, inherited brain disorder has told the High Court that she would have had an abortion if she'd known at the time of her pregnancy.

She is suing three NHS trusts saying they owed a duty of care to tell her about her dad's Huntington's disease.

Any child of someone with the condition has a 50% chance of inheriting it.

Doctors suspected the diagnosis after her father shot dead her mother and was detained under the Mental Health Act.

The father tested positive for Huntington's Disease, which is caused by a faulty gene and leads to the progressive loss of brain cells, affecting movement, mood and thinking skills. It can also cause aggressive behaviour.

He told doctors he did not want his daughter told about his diagnosis, fearing she might kill herself or have an abortion if she found out.

Australia is a mighty generous country.

An Iranian man seeking asylum in Australia botched his DIY penis enlargement procedure — and was granted entry to undergo pricey reconstructive surgery on taxpayer dime, according to local reports.

The man in his 30s, who wasn’t publicly named, tried to grow his member by injecting himself with palm oil and fell seriously ill, The Australian reported on Sunday.

He was transferred from an immigration detention center in Papua New Guinea to Australia last month for medical treatment that could cost up to $10,000, according to the outlet.

The transfer was made possible under Australia’s controversial 2019 Medevac laws, which give doctors a greater say as to which sick refugees can come into the county from offshore detention centers for medical treatment. Medical evacuations can be refused on national security grounds.

What part of strip search don't you understand? Genius Award Winner.

Following his arrest for possession of a hypodermic needle containing methamphetamine, a 380-pound Florida Man was hit with additional felony charges after jail personnel discovered a bag of meth “wedged deep within the belly button cavity of the defendant,” according to a court affidavit.

Police responding late Friday to a suspicious person call placed by employees of a McDonald’s in Clearwater arrested Martin Skelly when a search of the 41-year-old St. Petersburg resident turned up the loaded needle.

It might be a bit dusty in here. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

On Nov. 17, the parking lot of Six Flags in St. Louis, Missouri, was packed with a fleet of brightly colored sports cars. Vehicles of all makes and models — but especially the fastest and most vibrant — waited for the word, and then they all started lining up and proceeded to the funeral of a 14-year-old boy.

Alec Ingram of Washington, Missouri, was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in 2015, and for the past four years has fought bravely against the disease.

A Facebook page called Alec Ingram’s fight with Cancer was set up to keep people informed on his progress. They got updates of successes and setbacks, and the post received scores of comments from prayer warriors and well-wishers who all wanted Alec to overcome osteosarcoma.

73 Natan Sharansky, a refusenik who spent a lot of time in the Gulag before emigrating to Israel:

Can someone within that society walk into the town square and say what they want without fear of being punished for his or her views? If so, then that society is a free society. If not, it is a fear society.

Amazing how far we're progressed from society #1 to society #2 in the last few years.

You can get fired now from a significant fraction of the workplaces in America for publicly stating that "sex reassignment" surgery does not in fact turn someone from a man into a woman.

They want young men living alone in habitation pods, eating bugs, dulled by pornography, video games, and television, avoiding all familial and social ties that create communities.

Meanwhile the alt-right is out there telling young men that they have value to the world, to hit the gym, stop with the porn and video games that desensitize them to the real world, contribute to building a real community, and that wanting a wife and family is good.

Lead. Lots and lots of lead.

You should be adding lead to your water, adding powdered lead to your food and eating supplemental lead pellets.

This is to make you heavier without making you fatter. Fat is bad. But you want to be heavy so the evil oppressor people can't easily pick you up and carry you away.

And being heavy makes it harder to push you around.

No. Because everything is 100% stipulation these days.
You just have to know the pre-loaded answer.

Gays "born this way" is completely inconsistent with Ts "born this way". Plus Trans just tops the inconsistency with the Gay wave, by conflicting with itself. Why do you need to change your physique and genitals if what they are trying to get to is a "gender"--and the word we're supposed to use is "gender"--and "gender" and "sex" are two different things, besides that "gender" is a "social construct".

There is too much cognitive dissonance. So the only solution is to regurgitate the logic table to avoid the negative reinforcement of the mob.

There's a guy who was editor of one of the San Francisco alt-weeklies, and now runs a very-left wing web site, who bought his house years ago, and is now worth a couple of million.

He's all in favor of repealing Prop 13 - for commercial real estate only, of course.

331 Prop 13 only covers houses bought before a certain date.

No - the deal is that the house value resets when the house is sold, so the new buyer pays property taxes based on the price of the house when you bought it.

I have a friend who bought a house in Silicon Valley for $80,000 - the house is now worth a couple of mil. She pays taxes on the $80,000 valuation, but anyone buying the house would pay taxes on the two million valuation.

A solid portion of Californians are illegals, immigrants or destitute and pay zipola in property taxes, so they could give a flying fig if the average property tax burden goes from $1500 to $20-30K.


So you will see California locusts fleeing their state as they have been doing for decades and infecting the rest of the west.

But the insatiable taxing authorities have been gunning for Prop 13 for a long time - but I assumed that the order would be removing Prop 13 for commercial real estate, and then limiting Prop 13 (perhaps by saying that the Prop 13 tax valuation could only be $500,000 less than the market value of the house, for example).

Because they need something new at the low end of what used to be turbulence. I was watching a show the other day, and a terrorist blew out the engine on a passenger jet liner. The captain came over the PA, and announced that the plane was experiencing some turbulence.

I mean, losing your engine is pretty severe, right? So you can't just go calling any old thing turbulence! The little stuff's gotta be called something else, right? Or people won't know the difference between the engine on your plane blowing up versus just a few bumps in the air!

The destitute get welfare, so they don't care.


Immigrants and illegals will just sneak a few more cousins over the border and put them up, so instead of a house of 10 illegals you have a house of 15.


And if you are buying a house taxes are figured into your consideration so if you can handle $30k in taxes a
year more power to you.


Bottom line, let California do what it wants and get it good and hard.

424 @398 Until California passes a rent control law and municipalities wonder why they have so many derelict properties on their hands.

-------------

The state already passed a rent control law, and did it quite brazenly over the will of the voters.

A rent control item was up on the ballot during the last big election. The voters voted it down. Sacramento then went and passed a rent control law just a few months later.

No need - given the amount of rationing envisioned in Elizabeth Warren's Medicare For All, you'll just get palliative care after age 70, unless you are an important politically-connected person.

Then, after the inevitable budget crunch, it will be only palliative care after age 65.

458 ..Last night I think it was Jim from Galveston who said he would love to do a restomod on a 72 Super Beetle

Here's a shop that did a build of a 2300 CC VW engine that puts out 200 hp

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KtwSVXUKJhA


Posted by: kbdabear at November 19, 2019 11:11 PM (qAR6u)



'Twas I, indeed. But I'd be wanting something down around 140hp, with good power and torque graphs, no overheating, magnificent reliability and longevity.

That 200 hp engine borders on being a rolling grenade.

But imagine if you will, an "every nut and bolt" renewal of such VW, with modern, mapped digital fuel injection, a five speed manual, four-wheel disc brakes, state of the art suspension (remember, the Super Beetle has MacPherson Struts up front, and the rear axles have inner and outer CV joints, so no "swing axle" sadness there.

Right-size the wheels n' tires, set the body angle to not roll "nose up" when going down the highway.

Line the body shell with modern soundproofing before installing the interior. Use modern electricals, with robust, maintainable connecters.

Install the AC compressor from a surplus Suzuki sedan. Tiny compressor, but it does the job without hogging-down HP. Restore an old "Factory Air" under dash unit. Yeah, that was the brand name. And it contour fit under the dash, vs. being one of those "hang down" suitcase size units we used to see on domestic iron.

Give the car amenities. Power windows. Ergonomic arm rests. Cruise control. Many way adjustable seats. My 1st Beetle, a '71, even had an aftermarket center console on the floor, and I'd built a custom add on that joined the floor console with the underside of the dash, and gave me a place for switches and indicator lights for the halogen driving lights on front bumper.

A decent stereo, but not a ghetto-car-thumping abomination of distorted sound.

Put some modern headlights in the fenders, good LED stuff behind all the other lenses.

Like I said. Try to bring the car up to more modern, refined standard. Not "Hot Rod", but DRIVEABLE on a daily, dependable and comfortable basis.

That'd be the Resto Mod I'd want on one.

Oregon public pensions used to be exempt from state income tax. This ended after Federal retirees sued for the same treatment, so the tax exemption was eliminated.

The State of Oregon then raised all the Oregon public pensions by enough to cover the state tax liability. Even if you move to Nevada or Washington, which has no state income tax, you still get the pension bump.

You could probably get 140 hp out of a DIY upgrade in your garage, but the digital fuel injection would take some know how on how all the sensors work and how to program it. I think there are actually kits for that if you do some searches.

I remember that Anna Puma loves her some Karmann Ghia's, a 200 hp boxer in a KG might be a thrill. There's a video on Youtube of a German motorhead who put a Porsche 911 turbocharged 6 in one along with other upgrades, did 200 mph on The Autobahn

Finding a 5-speed that could be made to fit would be a problem, given that VW's used a transaxle, with all the gears in one housing. Maybe some Porsche or Subaru units could be adapted?

IIRC, fourth gear in air-cooled VW's was slightly overdriven, anyway, so that 4 speed box had a pretty good spread. Build your engine to have a broad flat torque curve, and you won't much miss a 5-speed.

548 ..Finding a 5-speed that could be made to fit would be a problem, given that VW's used a transaxle, with all the gears in one housing. Maybe some Porsche or Subaru units could be adapted?

IIRC, fourth gear in air-cooled VW's was slightly overdriven, anyway, so that 4 speed box had a pretty good spread. Build your engine to have a broad flat torque curve, and you won't much miss a 5-speed.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at November 19, 2019 11:39 PM (/sgva)



Five speeds are listed in ads in Hot VW and VW Trends magazines. Spendy, but they're there.

Trick to building a proper 1600cc Dual Port engine would occur long before the first wrench was turned.

The Spec Sheet on this would be THE key to success.

Which cases to source? Original or aftermarket cylinders? Water-cooled heads? (they're out there, too.) Which pistons? Rings? Crankshaft from which company? Bearings?

And yes, there are proven, ready to go, digital engine control systems for the VW engine on the marketplace. No need to re-invent the wheel there.

And, etc.

To get the right spec sheet, I would haunt the VW Beetle forums, get a consensus on who might be the Top Ten builders in the land, and solicit input from them.

And then pick one to build the damn thing. I'd insist on perfection, and being a Beetle, aircraft safety wire on certain components, such as the case-half bolts.

Can I build such an engine? Don't doubt that I could.

But I'd prefer to pay the guy who builds these as a Masterpiece, fifty weeks in a row.

Dude, if that ever happens you should first take it off and put it on something else. Someone else's car. Some hot shot truck going coast to coast. Some snakehead smuggling kids. Even put it in a fed ex and overnight it to hong kong, would be great to see their expression when their tracker is moving 550 mph.

If none of these work, put it on some cop car.

Honestly, if I found such a device on my car, and wanted to get rid of it, without ever acknowledging that I knew of its existence (which implies a guilty mind), I would detach it from its anchor, carry it in the car with me, and then find a rough-ass hunk of road with BAD chuckholes in it, and drive down it, and drop the damned thing in a deep chuckhole.

Signal stops. Cops go to last known location, find crushed transponder in chuckhole. Well, maybe it just "fell off".

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at November 20, 2019 12:16 AM (/sgva)

612 The ideal solution for the Police Tracker, would be to attach it to a local jurisdiction Police Helicopter.

IF, that is, one could elude security in such a manner to accomplish the deed.

But can you imagine the DILEMA of the "tracking" crew, trying to figure out "WTF?"

And the EMBARASSMENT to them all, once they'd figured it out?

Sure, Federal Felony for Aircraft Tampering and all that.

I had to look up the etymology of "ped". It has several meaning. The form meaning "child"/young comes from the Greek. In Latin, ped means foot.

Incidentally, there is a form from Greek that means soil/dirt, which is clearly related to feet, which trod upon said soil.

But, ironically, considering today's Swallowell angle, there is a Latin form that means "to fart".

So ped-/pedo-/etc, etc can mean child, foot, dirt or farting.

The word "petard" which persists today only in the Shakespearean "hoist with his own petard" comes from the fart meaning. It was a fart pun, which is lost in modern English.

Some years back there was a company in Michigan that bought the stamping molds for the Chevy Tri-5's to make the bodies or body parts out of brand new steel. For the entire body you'd shell out 25k, which in most cases is less expensive than restoring an original. Hot Rod featured a 55 Bel Air convertible built as such, with an LS-1 and Heidt IRS. Painted it two-tone burgundy and black and it was absolutely gorgeous.

676 before I turn in, I actually have a true story that combines farting with a traffic stop.

around 11 pm one night, I was driving home, and my 9 year old daughter was asleep in the front seat with just her blond hair showing in the front passenger window, I went through a big intersection of two highways and turned north and out of town again.

a cop must have seen her head, and the car seat in the back of the Cadillac, because that's the reason he gave for stopped us about 3 miles up the highway in the country.

He asked for proof of insurance and it was in the glove box. I'm short, so I leaned over onto my side, to open the box, because the Caddy is so big. while i was leaning over, an odd sound emitted from my posterior, unmistakable.

I didn't sit up right away, because I was mortified. When I did, he was gone, and called back to me as he walked away: "That's all right Ma'am. I'm sure you're fine. have a good night"

It's funny - the Oregon legislature would dearly love to raise the state income tax, but since Portland is right across the river from a state with no income tax, the legislature thus far has figured out that raising the state income tax would be counterproductive.

I had dinner with a senior physician from Children's Hospital BRS* and we were discussing how cardiologists have abandoned physical examination in favor of echocardiogram ($2500 a pop, at least) and that virtually every single patient seen in their clinic gets an echocardiogram done before even seeing the doctor. I asked him how long he thought this model could be sustained, and he said (in essence), "It will go on indefinitely."

I suggested that it would perhaps continue until Medicare for All was implemented, at which point some combination of rationing, price controls and denial of service would kick in.

He looked at me like he had never heard of Medicare for All.

Well, prior to around 1940, windshields and most car windows were just flat glass, usually laminated safety glass. (Really old cars used plate glass, before the invention of safety glass.)

Flat glass can be cut from stock, and most glass shops have, or can get templates for nearly any car. It doesn't even cost very much. Curved glass for popular old models can be made. The glass companies often keep the old molds, and will run off a batch if there is an order.

Obscure old models with curved glass can be a problem.

704 I want to report on something curious I have encountered. I spent a couple of hours today messing with the LED strips taken from an old flat-screen TV. About half the LED's were dead on each of the three strips.

So I started cutting up the strips into short lengths, each with a single white LED. Some of them lit up right away, fed with 3 volts from a pair of D cells. Lit brightly, too. Some would not light at all, given any voltage. But a few, maybe half a dozen so far, would not light initially on 3 volts, but if jolted with 4.5 volts, they would light up brilliantly, and then subsequently would light normally on 3 volts. One didn't light until I zapped it with 9 (!) volts, and then it, too, subsequently ran on 3 volts. It's almost as though the PN junction in the diode was "clogged" with something, and an over-voltage cleared the clog.

And there doesn't seem to be any mention of this phenomenon on the Internet, so far as my searching has found.

It has happened with too many now for it to be explained away as simply me being too fumble-fingered with the wire leads.

707 Generally for something like a crank you go to a specialist machine outfit and if the part is one piece of metal it can be hacked from a $forged$ $billet$ leaving 77.35% of the metal in the fuckit-bucket.

I kinda doubt that.

What I do think, is that he had this fat little fucker Vindman figured out early on, and left him in place to see what filaments his duplicitous magnet would attract.

And that's why, when the tubby dimwit tried to lay his Trump trap with Schiff, they got their flaccid little peckers caught in it.

They didn't know he'd classified the transcript. So they went out on the limb, blowing it out of proportion and fabricating its contents, and only found out they couldn't do the "Flynn 302 shuffle" with it when Vindman went to the deed.

And then Trump cut it out from behind them by releasing the transcript.

"I doubt you could 3D print a forged steel steering idler arm, or a crankshaft, for example."

Current state-of-the-art metal printing results in parts that are roughly equivalent to a part made from the same material but wrought. strong, better than cast but not close to forged. Not a good choice for idler arms. The crystalline structure is more or less random.

" And even if you had an absolutely perfect 3D CNC mill, I doubt you could duplicate a forged crankshaft, because the internal crystal structure of the metal is an artifact of the forging process, and is why such parts are made as forgings."

Apparently, billet crankshafts are currently the hot tip. There are a few YouTube videos of a crank being completely machined out of a round on a mill-turn. Forging should be better, but apparently the CNC mill-turn production advantages make the result competitive in high-performance racing; NASCAR, I think, not drag racing.

The big glass companies probably still have the molds. Caddies are popular collector cars. Heck, I can still get all the curved glass for various years of Studebakers, except maybe for '41-'42.

But I seem to SOL for the left side curved windshield glass for a '47 Flxible Clipper motor coach.

Odds are, it'll be the same glass as for a '49 Buick or Olds.

Even back then, GM beancounters demanded the "whatever code" body platform, would have the same firewall, windshield frame, engine mounting points and "under the skin" architecture as the rest of the GM line in that series.

Maybe I'm a few years too early on that with the '49, but you can take it to the bank. By '55, a Bel-Air's windshield was the same as it's Cadillac counterpart.

The LINES of the front fenders differed.

They'd both line up to the same bolt holes though.

Such was always the way of GM, and is, and always shall be, until they die.

(and ford/mercury/lincoln was the same, just with more obviousness.)

Posted by: Tonypete at November 20, 2019 01:16 AM (Y4EXg)

Pot metal is a zinc/aluminum alloy used for die castings. Not very strong, but strong enough for most of the purposes for which it is used. Usually chrome plated for trim parts. Also sometimes called "white metal". Carburetors were commonly made from it.

One possibility might be that the excess current is generating enough heat to reflow the solder on the bottom side of the die.
The front contact is usually wire-bonded on, but I think the bottom side is typically soldered.

The heat could also be driving off some type of corrosion or intermetallic compound (like "purple plague") that's interfering with the wire bond on the front.

Those are just guesses, though.

745 Up to date, public, detailed, and reliable info re northern Syria and "the Kurds"* is hard to come by.


However, if any large-scale or systematic atrocities were being committed, you'd hear about it.


I've followed it semi-loosely and so far there have been scattered claims of atrocities - not very many - plus a few pretty plausible atrocities [car bombs with video]. Awkwardly, those latter have ..... been in Turkish-controlled areas [directly or via proxy militia]. Which means, um, "the Kurds" are pretty good suspects - and they've used this kind of terrorism before.


Overall - surprise! - the various players have adjusted their game [local Kurds reaching understanding with Damascus regime, Turks and Russians coming to some kind of terms and doing joint patrols, etc].


World - not ended. US power, influence, $$, gunz, partnership, etc. - still valued/sought by those who woulda wanted it 2 or 2O years ago.


* "the Kurds" - there are Kurds in Iran, Iraq, Turkey, even Georgia [Tsakhvartelo, as they call it, explaining why "Georgia" is preferred]. Brace yourself - being as this is the MidEast, and Kurds are clan-structured, there are lots of factions and divisions and wildly varying kinds of integration/accommodation with national entities/cultures - and vicious rivalries and enmities. Hard to believe, I know. But when you hear "the Kurds", think of "the Arabs" in the Arab Council of Damascus scene in "Lawrence of Arabia" - available on UToob.

Biggest problem with modern pot metal parts is a design that doesn't allow enough section thickness in highly-stressed areas, say the projecting lever on a car door handle where the linkage rod attaches. Or like the bike levers you describe.

For years and years, Studebaker cars used an ignition switch retained in the dash by a bezel with a thin sleeve that had bayonet slots to engage a pair of small studs on the switch body. Inevitably, one or both the bayonet slots would fail, and the ignition switch would flop loose behind the dash, sometimes shorting out and starting a wiring fire.

One of our parts vendors now sells a replacement bezel made of CNC-machined aluminum that is much stronger in that critical area. Costs a few dollars, but can save you thousands.

These diodes are surface-mount devices, soldered to a thin strip of flexible circuit board material bonded to an aluminum backing strip.

But it might be a cold-soldered joint where the LED is soldered to the board. I could see, maybe, an overvoltage burning through an oxide layer in a cold-soldered joint an (temporarily) restoring continuity.

I should retrieve some of the "absolutely dead" LED's from my trash box, hit each joint with a hot soldering iron, and see if any come good.

Aside from all the other jaw-dropping stupidities, the cultural ignorance and ineptness of the address - the crown jewel in his odious multi-year "apology tour" - was "going against" his own, as you put it. The [sadly] late Fouad Ajami had a spectacularly good op-ed on the speech, in which he described how it horrified/puzzled/alienated most of its intended Arab audience.


A region/culture defined by utterly ruthless and clear-eyed [if often mistaken] realpolitik found the mewling apology of The Lone Superpower, which had not long before taken out the biggest badass/feared power in the eastern Arab world [Ba'athist Iraq], baffling and appalling. Fitting that the clueless, bumbling sophisticates demonstrated their *practical* cultural ignorance in such a dramatic fashion.

Well, for casings it would make sense. It's a cheap way to make non moving parts on a mounted device like a little lathe, that never gets tossed around or anything.

My dad's cheap little starter bullet press was made out of it. After he put thousands of rounds through it, it cracked by the handle mount and he bought a tougher one.

Using it for moving parts in a high impact device like, say, a gun would seem like a bad idea.

i used to w*rk repo, so i can speak to this, somewhat.

prior to 76, you could slide hammer out a GM lock and put a new one in.

then they put a locking screw on the bottom, so you had to either "force" the lock, with a special socket on a ratchet, which cracked the internal mechanism, you a screw drive in the key slot would start it, or, if you tore the lock face off trying that, you had to manually tear down the column. PITA and you had to disconnect the battery, as you would invariably set off the horn whilst doing it.

i got out of the biz just as the 90's were getting started, and they had already started making the insides more complex, and with weird screws (Torx, etc) which made it much harder.

then, once airbags got put in the steering wheel, it was apparently like trying to defuse a bomb.

Cousin marriage is pretty common in really poor places. It allows you to keep more wealth in the family, since there aren't other families to make claims on the offspring.

It probably keeps those places poor, too, since there's a significant IQ drop associated with the practice.

There is talk by some Democrats to go back to the Mueller report and try for some kind of lying charge or obstruction.

These trials became known as the Nuremberg Trials and their purpose was to hold Nazi war criminals accountable for 'war crimes' and crimes against humanity.

Posted by: Moron Robbie - You don't stop lawlessness by obeying the law but by enforcing it


Once in his shop a workman wrought
With languid hand, and listless thought,
When through the open window's space
Behold!-a Camel thrust his face.
"My nose is cold," he meekly cried,
"Oh, let me warm it by thy side."
Since no denial word was said,
In came the nose,- in came the head,
As sure as sermon follows text
The long, excursive neck came next,
And then, as falls the threatening storm
In leap'd the whole ungainly form

Aghast the owner gazed around,
And on the rude invader frown'd,
Convinc'd as closer still he prest,
There was no room for such a guest,
Yet more astonish'd, heard him say,
"If incommoded, go your way,
For in this place I choose to stay."
Oh, youthful hearts, to gladness born,
Treat not this Arab lore with scorn.
To evil habit's earliest wile
Lend neither ear, nor glance, nor smile,
Choke the dark fountain ere it flows,
Nor even admit the Camel's Nose.

905 Time for work preps. Plus spousal-approved maintenance. And to do a lot of writing.

Maybe I could retire. And get more time to post with the Horde. In that case; should be easy to get WiFi in my SUV under a bridge.

That's hilarious. Sure she isn't the same level of pilot as Matilda Manhater over in the next plane, who, sadly, isn't really close to the same level of pilot as Jim who transferred in from accounting, but she's hot.

You know.

Grrrl power.

I have noticed lately that this is becoming the go-to claim from leftists at all levels of political action.


Heard the EXACT same crap coming directly out of a Baltimore County Council members mouth in Council Chambers several weeks ago.

Daily cannabis use lowers odds of using illicit opioids among people who have chronic pain


*********


That seems to have been why severely conservative Oklahoma passed a medical marijuana law earlier this year. The opioid problem here is huge. No word yet on whether it's working but the State Treasurer's office is pretty happy with the law.
