Did Somebody Axe for an ONT?

So, I've been outside splitting wood, with an axe. In 90 degree weather with 90% humidity. Tonight's ONT may be a little loopy.

Y'all may remember when those trees came down in a storm in March. Well, better to chop them now than wait until there's a foot of snow on the ground. Besides, it's good exercise. Unless it's raining I do 12-15 logs a day.

Start the ONT Off Right, Too



'Murica.

This...is D-U-M



I hate to keep you guys from your riveting expose on imaginary Russian collusion, but those “flying delivery trucks” have a name. They're called “Airplanes”. The smartest name in news everyone.


Speaking of Smart

Death by Entitlement

Ace covered this the other day, but what the hell. Couple of mouthbreathing libs set out to bike around the world, trying to prove “Evil is a make-believe concept we've invented to deal with the complexities of fellow humans holding values and beliefs and perspectives different than our own.” They biked across Africa and Europe and into Asia. When they got to Tajikistan, 5 members of ISIS hit them with a car, then jumped out and stabbed them to death. I feel bad for them abstractly, being stabbed isn't a fun way to go, but really, how stupid can you be? Reminds me of the girl a couple of years back who wore a wedding dress and walked across Turkey to prove that Muslims were a peaceful people. They found her raped and desecrated body in a ditch. I call people like these “Kumbaya casualties”. They believe in their make-believe fantasy world of unicorns and rainbows over reality. You can (mostly) get away with that in the West. Other places? Yeah, not so much. Here's the last selfie they recovered from their cell phone.

Bird Droppings

Newport Beach Bans Electric Scooters After 3 Days

This seems like a good idea, particularly in areas where crunchy-granola hippie eco-warrior types abound. I get that there may be some problems, the most glaring one I see is people dumping them all over the place, but seems to me the city should work with the scooter company to resolve them. Nah. Just ban and demand more money in the form of permits and licenses.

I'll Take “Shit That Never Happened” for $500 ALex


You can click through and read the thread, but short version is he claims he wore a shirt with a faux sports logo for the “Caucasians” and walked around town and people flipped out. In Manhattan. Bullshit. You can walk around Manhattan with your dick hanging out and not get a second look (Well, *YOU* can. *I* get gasps of awe). Fake news.

Brexit

Only ignorance stands in way of a real Brexit now

Brexit is the prime example of how hard it is to make totalitarian government types give up their power.

18 For the Night Stalkers:


A Saga Continues:

In a Chinese restaurant in Maryland....

Fu Manchu sits at a table, a stack of
applications in front of him. "Dishwasher? See the manager. This
table is for dirt-dishers. Next."

A large man wearing a cowboy hat steps up. "Name?"

"Taggert."

"Any experience?"

"Well, I once worked for Headly Lamarr."

Fu Manchu gestures and two large Mongolians grab Taggert and drag him away. "Losers need not apply. Next."

A teenager steps up. "Name?"

"Brad."

"Any experience?"

"I'm a student intern at CNN and have been running The Situation Room since Mr. Blitzer went crazy."

"Relevant experience. Have you ever dished the dirt on someone?"

"Well, yeah. I mean, Caitlin who works
with me just gossips all the time and some of it is pretty funny so I
repeat it. I don't know if its true, but if its funny and bad, what's
the harm?"

"You're hired. You'll need a little
training in callous disregard for truth though. See the hostess for the
training materials."

*******************

"Here is the latest on foreign policy.
Mexico is negotiating on trade, China wants to talk about those tariffs -
they may be rethinking a trade war at this point, and Kim Jong-Un
called to thank you for the Estes rocket set, said he never
had one when he was a kid."

"I figured he would. I mean with the goofy
hair you could tell he was just a big kid who fell into the wrong crowd
- doing a little vandalism, some shoplifting, assassinations - he just
needed an outlet for all of that energy."

GorillaPundit looks at Trump and deadpans "Goofy hair...yes sir, that is it. Is there anything else?"

"No, just turn the tv on and put it to the Gorilla Channel. I love watching those apes smack each other around."

"Sir, there is no Gorilla Channel."

"Sure there is - the other night they had
this one on - Maddow was its name - and boy was she really bringing the
smackdown! That ape can swing bigly!"

"Oh right - MSNBC it is."

The TV is turned on and GorillaPundit leaves the office. Trump leans towards the TV and watches in anticipation.

"Governor Cuomo, could you repeat that?"

"America is not great and has never been
great! Slavery, Jim Crow, abuse of women, internments, war, football,
reality shows! America is a real sh*thole!"

"But you're a governor of an important state and want to be president! Why would you want to be president of a sh*thole?"

"Because as governor of New York I am a sh*theel and you need one to run a sh*thole!"

"Oh this is going to be good," Trump whispers. "Just need the next ape to come in and we'll see them fight!"

"Before we get deeper into Gov. Cuomo's
campaign theme of Cuomo 2020: See Clear to a Sh*theel for a Sh*thole we
have further allegations against President Trump...."

Trump pulls back. "Where's the fight? I
want to see some gorilla fight this gorilla. This blows. I wonder
what's on the Crazy Channel?"

He turns to CNN.

"Hi! I'm Caitlin and Mr. Blitzer says that
he's cheese and stands alone so #MeToo can't get him! Brad the dork
isn't here, he's trying to get a paying job so he can get that crappy
Lumina his grandma gave him fixed and he better! He
stills owes me for taking me to that Comic Con and insisting I dress up
as this anime whatever character Sailor Moon! I mean, that's like so
1990's and if that wasn't enough some creep dressed like a furry bear
tried to perv on me, kept saying "jub-jub-jub"!
Brad said it was a real Ewok, I still kicked its *ss!"

Trump snaps his fingers "Of course! That
little guy that I had strapped to the front of the RV back during the
campaign! He'll spice up the Gorilla Channel, get him to fight Cuomo
and maybe Maddow - maybe not until he's had a little training
- she's tough! Hey, one of you guys get Bigly the elephant, I gotta go
find this guy!"

i buttonholed a manager, told him *my* appliance was over the limit, and did it count. he smiled and said no, but i can give you a discount, so delivery was ~$30. guy got it off the truck, helped me get it off the shipping rack (it was already assembled) and wheel it in behind the gate.

it rocks... it doesn't take all the whiz-bang accessories the regular ones do, but they were several hundred $$$ out of our price range, w/o said extras.

I mentioned on Gab when this came up the other day: While it is good for a snicker, it is only until you imagine their last few minutes.

They did not get this way in a vacuum. They lived in a world where they could imagine a world that did not exist. Someone, somewhere did enough of a number on their threat analysis faculties to make them believe that this was a good idea.

And let's also not forget: this was not a bear or going over Niagara in a barrel- these people, naive though they were, were MURDERED by a group of evil thugs who any of us, I hope, would be happy to put a bullet into.

Posted by: Weirddave at August 17, 2018 09:35 PM (bQXMb)

Well, technically, a "log" is an entire tree trunk, or a long section thereof. What you are splitting are rounds or offcuts. And cutting them lengthwise with a chainsaw would be tedious, at best. You use an axe, and I use an axe, but the best tool for the job (absent a power wood splitter) is a splitting maul.

Heh. Reminds me. In the Reynolds Alberta Museum in Wetaskiwin (which is a must-see). there is a farmer-built wood splitter which is basically just a big iron wagon wheel with a splitting wedge welded to the rim. It sits in a frame with an anvil to place the cut wood on, and the wheel is belt-driven off a tractor PTO, at about 30 RPM. User rests the end of a hunk of wood on the anvil, and topples it into the path of the oncoming blade. Ker-thunk! Probably not a job for those who value their fingers.

Tonight I went to the one closest to where I live, which also only opened recently, and that has not-so-great reviews on Google.

I heat about 80% of my living room in MI with wood. There's a brick hearth with a heatilator, so once it's been cranking for a while I can switch it on and it really is toasty. It's completely useless when the power's out, unfortunately, which is usually during an ice storm, which would be a handy time to have a heat source that doesn't rely on a squirrel cage blower, like the furnace or the heatilator.

Impressive machine, but i see a few problems. Number one, still requires a lot of hand-wrangling of the wood. Both to feed the rounds into the machine, and to pick up and stack the split wood. If a length of wood gets crosswise in the feed end, you will have to shut down, reach in, and straighten it.

Push the wood through the splitter, and into a receiving chamber, still all close together, and have the machine throw a wrap of twine around to make a bundle, all the same as a hay baler. Then you only have to handle bundles, instead of a dozen times as many split pieces.

But all the newshounds do is copy the police blotter (bowdlerizing it as they do so) and sometimes send a reporter to a fire, or to a press briefing.

When I bought this house the prior owners had some wood stacked in the back. It was blocked but unsplit. I finally got around to renting a wood splitter and did that on a very cold October Saturday. Even though I had the wood in the garage and the splitter just inside it was still colder than a (#@^%.

Nice wood, though. Not sure of the species of hardwood; just that it was nice and dry when I split it, even the knotted pieces would *pop* when the knot was passed. Still have a little bit of it.

Can you legally ask the officer to leave his gun in his vehicle because you're afraid of guns?

Jim Fleckenstein, Retired Police Officer, EMT and Prison Teacher - Answered 9h ago

- - - - -

I had an incident related to this. As a police officer in uniform, an on-duty deputy and I walked into a Walmart when we were approached by two employees. They explained their new zero tolerance gun policy did not allow anyone to come into the store with a gun. I said, "right," and we kept walking.

They stepped in our path and told us they were serious, nobody is allowed in with a firearm. I said, "We're going in; feel free to call the police," and we walked past them. Neither of us ever heard another word about it.

Working peace officers have a duty to carry their firearm in public.

240 Humidity. In my nape of the woods, at 5000 feet, humidity is noticeable when it is high, and this summer I've seen readings in the upper 80% (one morning 97%) range. and yet it's still preferable to 50% downhill in Ohio or Louisiana. Altitude is a factor, which makes sense. More air squishing wetly on you down the hill. I like the Rocky Mountain West.

Frankly, I don't feel sorry for the cyclists' families unless they did remonstrate with them about the stupidity of what they were doing, and only to a small extent even then.

I view their demise as the denouement of a retarded upbringing, for which I blame their families. "Evil is just a construct ..." Yow.

So interesting, hogmartin. The first cottage my parents had ( a very small one) at Higgins Lake had a large fireplace with a heatilator. There's must have been different because dad said it worked by convection, that is the fire place (which was central to the structure) would get going and air was drawn into vents low, would pass along the fire place and flue, and then discharge deeper into the room(s), thus moving the warm air around. As he described it there was no need for electricity, just a good draft in the fireplace.

Yep, mine is on the west wall, not the center. I'm sure there's some convection current and radiant heating, but it really doesn't shine unless the blower's on, when it draws cold air from the floor through masonry grillwork back around between the firebox and the outside of the chimney, then through some metal heat exchanger pipes in the flue and out between the bricks in the front, between the mantel and the firebox.

The flue itself is so well insulated with brick that the temperature rises MAYBE one degree in the master bedroom upstairs, even with the chimney running along one wall of it.

288 Funny thing about chopping firewood. My dad always had a list of chores a mile long: weeding the garden, picking berries from the strawberry and raspberry patches, check the irrigation pump, clean the back shed, pull weeds off the gravel driveway. The one chore I liked was chopping firewood. We had a huge cottonwood fall on our house during a summer t-storm (the house won - it crunched through the roof, but the bedrooms upstairs were fine). I spent that fall and winter reducing that tree to firewood for the stove in our living room, using a sledge hammer and two wedges.

Much of liberalism for the last 50 years has been about pretending. Affirmative action is pretending that candidate minority is better than candidate majority. Pretend racism is minorities can't be racist and crackers can't not be racist. Transgenderism is pretending boys are girls or vice versa. They're pretending there's evidence that Trump colluded with Russia and that Hillary did not commit felonies. So pretending there's no evil (or imagining there's no heaven or hell) fits right in.

That may have something to do with it. What I am describing is a place my parents sold in 1975 when I was 9. There was no upstairs, and it was on a cement slab (which took too long to get warm) and add in the casement single-pane steel framed windows and the fact that as a log cabin the outer wall *is* the inner wall, and that when the oil-burning "furnace" was replaced with gas it did not actually move heat around through any ductwork I was aware of (and though young I am certain I would have found it if it was there - gosh I like stuff like that). The heatilators actually worked because as a small kid I remember going there and standing in my coat and gloves, and dad getting a fire going, and very shortly it was warm enough to remove the coat and gloves.

Maybe. I think there's a common guitar amplifier tube that they almost completely stopped making after someone discovered that ex-Commie countries were completely awash in a perfect copy (no surprise) that was about 1/80th the price. When they run out, they'll probably start making them here again, but yeah, nowhere close to what you can get one for now.

It did not hurt because I was called out as a "racist."

It hurt because this person actually viewed me that way. It damaged my own opinion of this person for a long time, an irony that hurt me deeply. I still struggle with it, although we are still close. Thank God for that.

That simply meant all the lumber was dimensional cut and packaged. Your responsibility to lay it out and build according to the master plan.

417 QUICK AND DIRTY MOVIE REVIEW!!!!!!

Mile 22

Lots of actions and 'splosions and its a Moron Approved film going experience.

Did I mention the 'plosions

So short version is it's about an American black ops team trying to spirit an intelligence asset out of a country that I guess is supposed to be a lot like Indonesia but no Indonesia. During the move a Russian black postnatal team hacks their communications and then it becomes about Americans killing Russians.

There may or may not be a moment with John Malkovich reciting a certain line quoted at the top of this here Smart Military snd Pirate Enthusiast blog.

It's short, Mark Wahlberg plays a perfect asshole, there's lots of killing....good Moron date movie material. Beware, cuz the sound design seems to lean towards dialogue being "artistically muffled" by background noise. Things also happen quickly, so don't get distracted.

Saw this on the AVX screen at the Santikos Mayan Palace Theater. I've spoken before about Santikos. Great chain. The theater itself is very nice with this Mayan theme on the outside. Got there, got my alcoholic beverage...cool beans. The AVX screen in this theater is no time the massive one like I've seen at their other locations. Wall to wall, yes, but lacks the height. Still looked and sounded excellent.

If one examines the prematerial paradigm of whiskey, one is faced with a

choice: either accept whiskey objectively or conclude that the purpose of
whiskey is deconstruction of the self. But whiskey may be pre- and re-contextualised into an ontological deappropriation that includes culture as a totality. Debord promotes the use of inebriated objectivism to deconstruct whiskey and it's necessary and ancillary constituents, water and ice.

Gramps was a high school chemistry teacher, and bought what had been a subsistence farmstead, as a place to spend summers away from the heat and bustle of the big city. The house was a log structure from just before the civil war, and had a cluster of timberframed barns, one for each purpose or animal type. The unsplit wood was stored in one half of the wagon shed.

The wood burning kitchen stove was set up with piping for heating the gravity spring water, so we could bathe and wash dishes. With this and Gramps' penchant for baking bread, we needed wood to fire that stove all day long, every day, and it was summer.

The wood was white pine mostly, bark-on slabwood from the big mill down in the village. We'd whack it up in the wagonshed, and wheelbarrow it down to the house to keep a freezer-sized woodbox full all the time.

Kindling was needed each morning to get the day's fire going, and we kept that in a small stack next to the big box. We used a double bit Adirondack-pattern axe for everything, and to split the small kindling sticks, held the axe just under the head for close control.

They're all gone now but I remember a lot of the barn details, and the names of them all. Main barn, lower barn, sheep barn, horse barn, pig shed, wagon shed, grainery, and the newer car garage, built about 1914. All the barns dated to the early 1870s, and were of spruce and pine, the main timbers all squared up by hand with broadaxes. Tenons were fixed into the mortises with hardwood pegs. Nails, where used, were all square-cut, and came from the nail mill two villages downstream from our nearest village. Ours had a covered bridge spanning the river.

One thing I've learned about musicians in the rock and metal world, is that they are just regular people who love life (Seattle grunge lead vocalists what commit suicide notwithstanding). I have a good friend who has met folks like Dave Mustaine and Gary Holt (Exodus), and they are, if anything anti-diva. They bristle when fans gush. Just shake hands and say "glad to meet you."

My buddy did not like Mark Slaughter, however. I recall he called him a douchy little asshole.

Posted by: Pug Mahon at August 17, 2018 11:39 PM (EhZNT)

488 Surfperch, actually just the opposite.

The country club came first, with some large upscale homes built around it. Those residents named the area Lakewood, again, for the resort in NJ. This was during the 1930s and early 1940s.

Then a boulevard nearby, Highway 19, was named Lakewood Boulevard.

So when the time came to choose a name for this newly incorporated town in 1954, residents chose Lakewood. But other names were considered, I believe.

There are a wealth of quotable insights. Sowell cuts through the sociological BS with remarkable insight, and always with verifiable data.

The whole town has the reputation of being run by an HOA in City Hall. It's beautiful and VERY upscale, but for instance, there are (or were) restrictions on what colors you could paint your house, for years. They are or were called "Cerritos Colors."

Also, Cerritos had a city law that no business sign could contain any poor English grammar or spelling. So for YEARS, they were on the ass of the Toys 'R Us (now closed, obviously) in Cerritos, because of the backwards R!

The store opened in 1972 and by the 1990s, its manager had to threaten to close up and move here to Lakewood, to get the council members off their back. Good grief.

In a sense, the subject of the "Rabbit Hole" is interpolated into a Debordist imagery that includes diadactism as a reality. The dialectic paradigm of holes suggests that the goal of the observer is significant form, but only if truth is interchangeable with reality; otherwise, Bataille's model of Lacanist obscurity is one of "the semioticist paradigm of holes", and hence fundamentally unattainable.

Therefore, the defining characteristic, and eventually the genre, of

subdialectic ringemot theory depicted in Lewis Carrols Alice in Wonderland emerges again in Donnie Darko. Baudrillard's analysis of the dialectic paradigm of discourse implies that man is capable of social comment.

BackwardsBoy, as I recall it, Fee Waybill had this habit of ending up naked by the end of a lot of shows.

But I could be wrong.


For this show, he came out as Quay Lewd, the World's Tallest Rock Star. 18" platform boots and a skin-tight silver lame outfit with what appeared to be a gigantic cucumber in the pants part. Played White Punks On Dope and then "died" when a 20 ft tall fake guitar amp fell on him. He then became an angel surrounded by nubile young ladies who were wearing nothing but pantyhose and two strategically placed strips of electrical tape.

Waybill did one song as a doctor. They wheeled out a gurney while he cranked up a real chain saw and chased some guy a couple of tables over out the front door with it. He delivered a little baby guitar appropriately covered with goo.

A good time was had by all.

I would not go so far as to call Kansas a "Christian Band" (even though I may have just said so, shut up, been drinking!) but they were far removed from what I was generally drawn to as a teenager. They had a far more positive and, well, happy element to their sound But I loved their music, and Steve Walsh is a helluva front man.


By the time Kansas hit the scene, I was into Yes and ELP. I always thought of them as America's Prog Rock Band.

Didn't find out until a couple of years ago that they were/are a Christian band. I did notice the subject matter of their songs and the absence of secksual suggestivenessism, but I never gave it any thought since most prog rock is like that.
Great band with a new album out, first one in like 15 years.

564 I also have relatives on my (estranged) dad's side who, from 1966 until the 1990s, lived off of McKinley Street in the western segment of Riverside, California.

They got a swimming pool in the late 1970s, so my family was in the habit, in the summertime, of visiting them at least once a month, to go swimming.

The trip there was incredible for me as a young kid. That area of Riverside was barely developed. There were even some old fashioned farms with horses, and hay bales.

Only a few years ago, I finally was able to swing by there again. It's completely built up. Not even a tree in sight. Tons of strip malls, more homes/apartments, and commercial/business buildings. Looks NOTHING like it did in the early 1980s.

There was also a segment north of CA-91 of McKinley, that was nothing but a dirt road. Today it's as big, wide and developed as the southern McKinley segment I just described. Again, good grief.

LA's sprawl has been out of control for a long time now.

I used to play a lot of poker, and at the level I played most of the other guys at the table owned businesses. Since I was interested in starting a business at the time I would ask them specifics. I asked one guy what his top line revenue was and he returned with "You want to know how much I take in or how much I tell the IRS?"

Strange.

I live in SoCal, which is the epicenter of WCS. Within a 100 mile radius are most of the best WCS dancers in the world, and there is a whole subculture of WCS dancers here. The demo skews young, which is one of the things I like about it. Nice, young attractive dancers to watch.

702 logprof, Quora is a growing online social site where people can ask questions, or answer them, or comment on the answers.

I would venture to say most of the questions are political in nature, but not all. There's also questions on religion/Christianity, fashion, culture, dating, you name it.

I admit I've been enjoying it the past couple months. They have a BNBR policy "be nice, be respectful" and they actually seem to mean it most of the time, even to lefties.

724 Right now at Quora, I've had a give-and-take with another Christian, by the name of Bob Triez, and we're discussing the inerrancy of the Bible.

In my case, I'm making the argument: YES the Bible was divinely inspired, but are you *certain* there's nothing left in there that's due to mankind's error? For instance, there's a lot of stuff about women being supposedly inferior to men, that sounds to my ears much more inspired by man's laws at the time those books were written, than by God's love and guidance.

Bob just responded to me that a God who is incredible enough to simply speak the universe into existence, is incredible enough to make sure the Bible is absolutely pure and perfect.

His POV is valid. I'm not going to argue with him or try to diminish his views. But it's nice to be able to have a conversation about these kinds of things somewhere on the web with people who are actually mature, rather than trolls. Anyway, I could very well be 100% wrong and Bob could be 100% right.

741 Yoda, here's what I wrote to Bob Triez at Quora:

* * *

I would think that God wants us to believe in Him and Christ because we *want* to, and not only because the Bible says to.

And Mr. Triez, I'll probably get in trouble with you for saying what I'm about to, so hold on, BUT (there's always a 'but')...

I AM a Christian, and I definitely believe the Bible was divinely *inspired.* But I admit having trouble believing that every single word in there, is something God wanted. The Bible was transcribed by humans after all, and it's no secret we mess up everything we touch, for reasons we both know a lot about.

God is obviously, more than humans can ever imagine, brilliant. And I think God designed the Bible to work not just as a direct literal message, but also in undiscovered, innovative ways. I think for instance that the Bible is God's Rorschach test; different people find different things in it. Some, like you and I and many others, find a great loving God who gave his Son to die for us on the cross; but others dwell on the stories or laws that in today's eyes seem paternalistic, over-the-top and silly, and/or dismiss the whole thing as a collection of fairy tales designed to manipulate people, usually becoming atheists and/or anti-theists as a result.

I believe God ultimately convinced mankind to choose the books making up the Bible, because they provide the best insight available at that time as to who and what God and his Son are; but I also believe, and I have a hunch you will disagree, that there *are* man-made mistakes still dwelling in many of them, in particular things written about women, slavery and other 'hot topics.'

Now even if I'm right, this opens up a giant can of worms. Who's to say what's there that God *doesn't* like? I don't know of any email where He clarified "yeah, about that, you wouldn't believe what the Apostle Paul was thinking that morning," but: The 'debate' over various controversial bible verses could go on forever, of course. I also want to stress, this is NOT to claim that whatever's seen as 'hip' today, is therefore fine and dandy with God because, oops, it musta been one of the Bible's mistakes! I sincerely doubt the truth could ever turn out that conveniently for mankind's present-day cultural/social outlook.

But I hope I've made a halfway decent argument, as a CHRISTIAN, that even the Bible can be read critically, while I and others *accept* its fantastic overall message-- and gift-- of love, peace and eternal life. God bless. :-)

Well, you'd need to define terms. I'd argue that, if you don't accept that men and women have different but equally important roles in traditional Christian beliefs, that women are the superior sex. People always point to the verse telling wives to obey their husbands claiming that it makes women "oppressed", but they always leave out the second half: Husbands are supposed to love their wives "as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her". So men are expected to lay down their lives for women. If that's the case, then exactly which sex is superior/most important?

767 Place round for splitting inside of rimless car tire. Pieces are
contained for splitting, reduces effort resetting and picking up split
wood.

I have one. I use it when I have a log that isn't cut square on the bottom (won't stand up on its own). I can lean it upright against the inside rim. It works, but the tire clogs up with things like bark fairly quickly.
And now I'm off to bed. 'Nite Horde.

I'm a connisewer of the strange, sir, I need no bong rips, but I found myself fast-forwarding through Eraserhead.

It's good to understand the roots of Lynchian weirdness; tree and leaf were the atomic testing/tear in TimeSpace scenes in the new Twin Peaks.

It was quite busy behind the bar this evening, but I did not let it dissuade me from having a wee dram or two whilst on the clock.

Positive aspects included someone handsome tips and a table full of 21 year old college girls that came to listen to the band.

The female form is quite something to behold, especially in tight-fitting mini skirts. I will file that table of guests under "I hate to see you leave, but I love to watch you go".

They are found in the water on the beach, in dumpsters, clogging sewer drains. Stacks of them set on fire, etc. Environmentalists are upset, they were suppose to be the answer to all of LA's traffic problems.

808 "Interesting story in one of the LA papers (LA Times?) about electric scooters.Seems the are laying all over the place, discarded"

Oh wonderful.

Baltimore initiated a rental bike program downtown that had to be shut down and security measures increased due to low usage rates, and high theft rates. After being off-line for 90 days, they re-implemented the program with all the new security measures in place.

Last week, Baltimore announced that they were dropping the bike-share program due to inability to keep up with demand.

And are replacing it with this scooter program that LA is enjoying much success with.

No one of us is a dumb as all of us.

830 Re: CNN and so-called "flying delivery trucks": I have read that one symptom of Alzheimer's and dementia is the inability to come up with the correct word for an object and substituting other words in it's place. The example was replacing "teakettle" with "water thing".

So, replacing "cargo plane" with "flying truck" may indicate CNN's onset of dementia - which would explain a lot.
