24 Finally cleaned the Mosin-Nagant from .... 2.5 weeks ago? It's OK, dry climate (which has been dry as paper for months). After 20 min. with two powerful solvents and a lot of patches, and a brush, once again accepted that a 1925 bore will not likely be mirror-bright again. Rifling is stronk, like bull. Shoots nicely. Fun to imagine it made it to Berlin in '45.

33 I blame the concept of participation trophies and special snowflakes for our response to COVID. Yes, people will get sick and some will die. But people get sick and die of the flu every freaking year. Society is so freaking fragile now that we have destroyed ourselves over a disease that 99.6% of the people who have it will recover from.

42 Watched the first half of German silent SF movie "Die Frau Im Mond", about a rocket trip to the moon. It's amazingly prescient about rocket launches (Professor Hermann Oberth was an advisor), and the movie tropes about space stuff are already there (and it's only 1929), but mein Gott they need an editor. An hour and a half in and we haven't even gotten to the blastoff!

72 These stupid and idiotic and pointless nurse dancing things are fake. In the real world of nursing, you barely have time to pee or eat a meal.

If things were so dire with the plandemic, they'd be working their asses off.


As I watched bits of the Georgia hearing today, I was struck that if it was on MSM (ha!) or reversed and Dims were impacted, things would be different. There would be widespread horror of foreign countries controlling the voting machines!!! Fake ballots!!!

78 I am really expecting, and also hoping, that the Trump Group has a plan to pull this off. From what I see around the net in various places I frequent, I'm more than a little worried that if the Opposition succeeds here things could get bad. Lots of angry armed people that know things and I think the thought that Trump will fix things has served as a safety valve. With the Opposition in charge of the WH and the exposure of the GOP as not to be trusted, that could be the tipping point for a goodly amount of capable people.

Re 1918 vs 2020: in fairness, mass media didn't have nearly the same presence in people's lives in 1918 that it does today.

In fact today's media,its omnipresence and intrusiveness, would have likely been unfathomable to people in 1918. Today's media is overwhelming.

Just get a 24" half-inch drive flex handle, complete with a socket sized to fit the lug nuts on your car. Anyone who has ever attempted to change a tire with the pitiful lug wrench provided by the manufacturer will appreciate the usefulness of such. And, grabbed by either end, makes a very fine club, too. Easy to wipe the blood and hair off chrome.

Hi Doc! Agreeing with Joe Kidd's disclaimer, my dad used to always do 2 things: he kept a new ax handle in a paper bag under the driver's seat in his truck. I think he even had the old receipt in the bag and would occasionally actually use the handle when he would have to replace it on a tool, but he always would buy another and stash it under the seat.

Whenever we travelled, my dad would go out early in the morning and buy a newspaper. He carried it rolled up in his back pants pocket. I finally figured out why when he used it on gypsies who were trying to pickpocket him.

two theories:

They promise to have better forecasts when Congress allocates billions for more powerful hardware and software.

A couple generations of Climate Change Doctrine in meteorology schools has so corrupted the models from poor and erroneous assumptions; changing historical data to conform to modern demands; inflating some inputs while removing others, has resulted in forecasting models that no longer work in the real world but do produce results that favor the political agenda.

One does have to take some care with not giving them too much rich food. I hear donkeys are this way as well but never owned one. We buy lower nutrition hay for our minis so they can have more munch time without obesity issues.

I read on a prepper site many years ago that if you're stocking-up for a SHTF* situation, stash several cases of good whiskey, bourbon, and vodka. And EverClear. Reason: You may be glad to have it for your own use, but the prime reason given is it may be worth a whole lot in a local barter economy.

His method takes hardly anytime at all. He says he can scan 500,000 ballots in a day. He has shown that the machines can be hacked so his method does not involve the machines. He shocked the committee today by having a white hat hacker actually get into the Dominion machine while they were sitting at the hearaing so he could show them that the machines were connected to the internet even though they were not supposed to have access in either direction, in or out.

450 illiniwek, I don't think you'd identify the individual ballots that were adjudicated. That change would be electronic, which is to say not reflected on paper unless you also took those ballots out of the mix and printed replacements for them, but if you were going to do that, there's no point in the electronic change. So I suspect if he just has the raw ballots, he'll find discrepancies in the total.

I didn't watch the hearing so I'm not sure what he's looking for maybe "mail ins" that never saw the mail?

476 Lin-Duh @ 390- Furring out is using slats to make the space between two members smaller. Say 2 uprights like studs, and you cut your purlin or bridging or fireblock 1/8 short, just fur out one or other of the studs and you will have to cut again to fit. After judicious measuring! If this board of which we speak being 1/8 short is a dare I utter....shelf? Just fur out one or other of your uprights and you are good to go. It's also called scabbing, but that word seems somehow wrong when talking to a lady.

477 Trump is only down by about 11,000 votes in Georgia so they don't have to find many. Also, they showed video of votes being subtracted from Trump and moved to Biden. As votes are being counted, votes are being subtracted from Trumps totals and switched to Biden. There is no reason for this to happen. This video I watched on TracyBeanz twitter showed over 30,000 votes being switched.
This is a legitimate reason to reject the electors in the swing states. This is pretty shocking. It is becoming more and more visible to the public. I am an optimist so I am not giving up.

I've got about seven until I hit 65. Left a full-time job because I could afford part-time, but am getting sick of that, too. A career change wouldn't help, since I don't want to do anything. So until I can figure out how to live on a lot less, I have to keep working.

Tito's is good but overpriced for what you're getting. Svedka is a better buy.
Tito's is marketed as handcrafted, and is run through small batch stills but they bring in ADM corn alcohol by rail.... so they were actually sued for misleading advertising.

Anyway I know you didn't ask, but figured I'd share anyway. It is good I just think there are equally good options for cheaper.

Can you trim all the other shelves down to 95 and 7/8"?

Alternatively, mill an inch-wide rabbet on the end of the short shelf, exactly half the shelf thickness. Then mill a matching rabbet on your offcut, fit them carefully and glue with Gorilla glue, and cut to 96" exactly.

Alternatively, mill an inch-wide rabbet on the end of the short shelf, exactly half the shelf thickness. Then mill a matching rabbet on your offcut, fit them carefully and glue with Gorilla glue, and cut to 96" exactly.

thanks ... a friend always gets absolut ... seems pricey for just vodka (other old friends swore they'd have no hangover with absolut, but would with cheaper stuff, idk) I'll check out Svedka ... and Burnetts. I just have the one bottle of Tito's.

He was welded to the deck, ancient half-full coffee cup in his right hand, frozen in time while pointing to a spot the Seaman Recruit had missed painting, petrified bear-claw in his left hand.

605 I'm 38 and trying to figure out if I can change careers. It would probably mean going back to school if I wanted to do anything else. I may look to a masters program next year, if I don't end up moving to Austin and signing up for the ACC blacksmithing program.

Live in Kyle. Buy a house. You will be happy you did in a few years. Not sure about blacksmithing though. Welding apparently pays very well now.

606 the bottle I just finished was Svedka .. I didn't even remember ... I'm transferring some honey from its plastic container to the old Svedka bottle for better long storage. I have some concern they may "Reset" my dollars from savings, into confetti.

607 For those who didn't see it the guy in GA who is trying to get access for an audit was able to hack into one of the voting machines being used for the recall live during the hearing. The vote machine was sending and receiving data over wifi. Those machines are not even supposed to be able to connect with anything. Wtf.
