If You Build It They Will Come


They’ll come to Iowa for reasons they can’t even fathom. They’ll turn into your driveway, not knowing for sure why they’re doing it. They’ll arrive at your door, as innocent as children, longing for the past. “Of course, we won’t mind if you look around,” you’ll say, “It’s only twenty dollars per person.” And they’ll pass over the money without even thinking about it, for it is money they have and peace they lack. And they’ll walk off to the bleachers and sit in their short sleeves on a perfect afternoon. And find they have reserved seats somewhere along the baselines where they sat when they were children. And cheer their heroes. And they’ll watch the game, and it’ll be as they’d dipped themselves in magic waters. The memories will be so thick, they’ll have to brush them away from their faces. People will come, Ray. The one constant through all the years Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It’s been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game, is a part of our past, Ray. It reminds us of all that once was good, and that could be again. Oh people will come, Ray. People will most definitely come.

History

New archaeological layer discovered at L’Anse aux Meadows

L'Anse Aux Meadows is one of the cooler historical sites I've been to. What makes it so cool is the exact same thing that made walking the Appian Way in Rome give me goosebumps. You actually get to walk the exact same ground as famous historical figures. Leif Erikson stood on the exact same spot I did, a thousand years ago. If you ever have a chance, you should visit. It's not easy to get there, however. I wouldn't say it's in the middle of nowhere, no. L'Anse aux Meadows is on the far side of nowhere.

Anyway, the highlight was our speaker explaining that the university makes a point of *not* treating people equally, because to do so would be to ignore the historical inequities that have created today's current social imbalances blah blah blah.

Our house was constructed with the wrong orientation. Our bedroom is at the West end, so it gets the maximum heat of the day. The garage is at the East end. Dumb.

43 Good evening,

One experience that gave me a similar feeling to what you experienced at L'Anse Aux meadows was the columns in ancient cathedrals in Ireland that were worn from where people's heads rested.

Posted by: AmericanKestrel at August 09, 2019 10:14 PM (IDhUW)

44 Leif Erikson stood on the exact same spot I did, a thousand years ago. If you ever have a chance, you should visit. It's not easy to get there, however. I wouldn't say it's in the middle of nowhere, no. L'Anse aux Meadows is on the far side of nowhere.


Leif maybe stood there. Mad props for getting to L'Anse aux Meadows. It was definitive proof that the Icelandic sagas' claims of New World voyages were real.

There was question until the early '60s when a Danish archaeologist, Helge Ingstatt, and his wife found this site.

The thing is that there are two sagas which recount voyages to Vinland and neither exactly describes the kind of settlement at L'Anse aux Meadow, which may have been used for one to three winters.

That is, it may be supplemental to the Sagas and not necessarily a Leif Eriksson site.

80 The other highlight came at the end, when we watched a video about inclusion (or something--I don't really remember). What I do remember is, a student who talked about one of his classmates being a tranny, and xhe "corrected" the professor in class one day for "misgendering" xhir. Now, he proudly announced, that professor addresses all of her students as "Scholar," rather than Mr. or Ms. _____.

As I said to a friend in a text, I guess addressing them as "Comrade" would be tipping their hand a bit too much.

We also are three days away from the peak of the Perseid meteor shower, but given the waxing moon, its brightness will interfere with viewing around that time.

Here is an article on where to find the radiant - between the constellation Cassiopeia and the star Capella -- https://www.space.com/32868-perseid-meteor-shower-guide.html

You can compute when Capella rises at your location using this link -- https://aa.usno.navy.mil/data/docs/mrst.php

Your best time for viewing this evening is between 2:00 and 4:00 EDT, I would guess. Take a chair or blanket, find a location with a clear view to the north of east and keep your eyes peeled for streaking lights in the sky coming from the vicinity of the radiant.

Those are serious tributes rather than New Age flaky. But as "flaky" is right up WD's alley, here is a New Age guru's insights about 10 signs that your pet is visiting you from the afterlife. Some signs are dog-specific and others are cat-specific.

"A typical cat visitation is where [sic] you will feel your cat curl up along the backs of your knees while laying [sic] down, at the foot of your beds [sic], or along your back, also when you're laying [sic] down in bed. A cat in spirit or their presence can even make a physical impression in the sheets of the bed, so be sure to look for that."

A decade or more ago, I was impressed with this young new talent by the name of Taylor Swift.

She turned out a lot of good music, very relate-able.

Now, just another leftist tool.

And her newest songs sound like shit, too.

Not angry at all, just kinda sad at another talent being wasted by Leftism.

215 Illinois' politicians are freaking out over Trump's proposal to pardon former governor Rod Blagojevich. They're afraid that Blago has been talking to the Feds, and that what is knows is really damaging, even after seven years in prison.

In particular, rumor has it that when Blago was trying to auction off Obama's vacant Senate seat after Obama was elected president, Obama was overheard on an FBI wiretap trying to convince Blago to appoint Valerie Jarrett to the seat. If true, it would be interesting to know what inducements Obama was offering.

Robert Mueller's FBI had zero interest in investigating Obama, of course, and allegedly terminated the investigation immediately once Obama showed up on a FBI wiretap.

Conjugation.

This is the stuff of nightmares for kids. I had several hours of tutoring after school three times every week. It was my mother's idea to compensate for my school's deficiencies. The only subject I dreaded and to this day have confined to the deepest and darkest purposely forgotten recesses of my brain was conjugating verbs in Spanish. I did my best. I learned and practiced being a good kid wanting to please parents. But no matter how many tenses I learned, there were always more. A never ending line of Castilian verbs waiting to make life miserable.

So I gave up and blocked it off. No more pluscuanperfecto for me.

290 Also on campus, mens soccer team was practicing and the field is next to the student union building where I was hanging out. The ladies were vereeery interested in the boys. It was in the 90s and they were running around shirtless.

Brought back fun memories when I played as a youngun. And yeah the girls would watch us practice too.

But I was thinking had that been a girls team and guys were ogling, theyd literally worse than Hitler. At least its nice to see a little normalcy still exists on campus.

This is a private, $60k a year type place. Upper middle class white kids for the most part.

I have gotten to the point where I will grab a beer and walk back to my office to continue working, because the conversations are so fucking inane - "I lurve my plug-in electric car, you guys..."

The older I get, the more het up I get about the erosion of what has made America great. I'm just glad that the woman who shares an office with me gets me. She's close to my age, married to an Army guy, used to fly small planes in Alaska. She's nearly impossible to offend.

She actually was offended once, when Bob walked in to bitch about something and dropped an F-bomb, then hastily apologized.

Office mate said,"quit fucking apologizing."

Miley's neighbor across the street here is something. He's the one with the insanely manicured lawn. Manicured isn't even the word -- it just doesn't do it justice.

Apparently he was using some landscaping outfit to cut that grass, but he bought a mower to do it himself, looks like.

Now, this is about a $5K mower, I figure. It's one of those zero turn radius jobs with the deck on front, and the bobcat-like handle controls. It has a fancy bagger on it, too.

Now, his yard is not that big. It's a little bigger than a postage stamp. Maybe a postage stamp and a half. One could easily do it with a push mower in no time at all.

And he bagged his clippings. It was ridiculous. He filled the catcher up about half way through -- 3/4 of a postage stamp. He then had to get off and load the clippings into plastic bags.

I can't stand to bag clippings. Wastes all the nutrients. Put it back on the ground from which it came.

They want all their special intersections given deference EVERY time you have to address or refer to them. They have apparatchiks and political officers to enforce this outrage. One of the commisars in the article actual whined about how hard it is for him to "correct" people all day long.

And the article CELEBRATED this, as if it is a welcome and necessary corrective to our wrongthink. It is infuriating!

338 great post wd. as usual.

allow me to vent before i scan the comments

wtf is going on with coke. I saw the link about their Hungary gay adds. Here in Japan they are pushing hard on their coke-zero. wtf. Diet has a limited audience in Japan, mostly young women, so they push this coke zero crap and the regular coke never goes on sale.

They also push the 500ml plastic bottles and not the 1.5 l or cans (200ml, so smaller than us but everything is smaller here.)

why would they push the coke-zero? is the chemical crap cheaper even than HFCS? Do they think people will drink anything (well, they did drink tab, so i guess they will.)

They also stopped having sales on their sports drink, trying to move it up to the premium slot owned by Pocari Sweat. The coke stuff is lousy and now I buy the off brand at the home center which is actually very good.

So coke seems to be on a steady path of higher prices, crappy product and getting worse. I really think they have given up on quality and figure the whole business is about forcing retailers to stoke and push your crap and people getting used to the taste of whatever shit they put in the bottle and paint red.

355 Can't remember the source, but a student actually put down Your Majesty/His Majesty as his pronouns. The professors had to call him your majesty for the entire semester. Fucking legend.

One of my best buddies works in a government contracting job. Years ago some SJW type raised a stink and got preferred personal pronouns to be mandated at his job.

Instead of a compost heap, you can try trench composting. I did that on some ground that was killed by having a shed on it for years.

Just dig a trench, or even just dig a single shovel blade hole, dump your vegetable scraps in it, and bury it. If you want to be fancy, dig a trench instead, and each batch of veggie scraps get buried in turn.

It works the soil, it loosens it up, and digs the scraps in to enrich the soil.

"Asexual polyamorous"?

Posted by: Zettai Roshia-no Botto at August 09, 2019 11:21 PM (wgV7k)

Ewoks, in the juvenile stage are trisexual and will be known to mate with common objects such as sofas and toasters. When the Ewok matures and puts on the beer-gut and has the under-pelt of gray come to the surface the Ewok forms a close, intense, yet violent attraction to the platypus; a reaction that involves lust, shame, growth, and large cash bribes.

At this point, when the platypus has been removed, the Ewok will retreat into a Brooklyn apartment to weep, groom his pelt, indulge in the consumption of Bugles and Fritos while binge watching "Murder She Wrote."

After several weeks and applications of "Dynasty" and "Dallas" the Ewok may be recovered and capable to enter society once more with a sense of hope based on wealth and delicate female undergarments as seen on ABC on Friday night.

I'm watching Perry Mason now, and had to laugh out loud. He just did some slick lawyerin'. His client, a pretty blonde ingenue (he got a of those) was being charged. I wasn't paying attention until then, don't know if the murder had happened yet, but she was charged with stealing $50K worth of jewelry from a jewelry box. Some prominent dude's wife or something.

The prosecutor -- not Burger, but some young punk -- wanted to deny bail. Perry said I'll compromise -- we'll set bail at the amount that was stolen. Young punk agrees, $50K would suit him fine.

Mason smiles. He then calls the guy on the stand and pulls out a copy of the insurance papers on that jewelry. Didn't you just pull that $50K out of how much you insured it for? Is the box completely empty now?

Well, no. So less than $50K was thus missing. How much less, Mr. So-and-so?

Before it was over, the guy couldn't swear that $5 was missing, much less $50K. The judge releases her own her own recognizance, per the agreement Mason just made with the prosecutor.

379 Best matrix of cost / effectiveness in a mower I've yet seen, is a fat tired, self-propelled 44" mower, with the fat tires as the drive wheels, the front wheels were free-turning caster mounts.

What made it special?

The operator stood on a wheeled "Surrey" platform immediately behind the mower. Steered the mower by wide, great leverage handlebars. Motorcycle type throttle.

WAY faster than any "zero turn" sit-on platform. And a turn radius so tight as to collar a tree in one pass, even if not a true "zero turn".

Looked like it took a bit of skill and physicality to run it well though. If it doesn't have a Dead-Man switch n' cable, it damn well ought to!

The limiting speed for most rotary mowers is not how fast the wheels can turn, but how fast the cutter blades turn. Overfeed the blades, and it leaves uncut grass. My only complaint with the Dixon ZTR is that driving is a two-handed operation, which cuts into my beer drinking.

How much timing chain stretch is acceptable on an older V8? I've tried everything else, I think it's a little doggy, maybe due to timing chain.

Before the '99 divorce, my abode in San Antonio, TX, was in the far North-West quadrant of town, abutting Helotes, TX, for those who know the area.

I had a great overlook of the UTSA campus, and a bit to the left, a view of Fiesta Texas, from the backyard deck.

Said backyard featured 29 mature trees on an oddly shaped, trapezoidal residential lot... still, the typical 1/4 acre. That's a lot of tress there.

My lawn contractor drove one of those Surrey rigs. Don't know his blade speed, but it must've been-a-spinnin'.

Fast as he could go, and he was FAST, he left a golf-fairway manicured lawn in his wake.

He did once tell me that he never trusted a shop to sharpen his blades... he did that himself, as often as needed, even in mid-job if the mowed results so required.

His turnover in crew was about a bazillion percent though. No one could keep up with his pace. Not with a weed eater, not with a leaf blower.

He got his immigration the LEGAL way, and Citizenship, too.

He HATED liberal democrats. Said they were the same as PRI in Mexico, only worse.

If I remember right, about 8 degrees of slack is about the limit for the timing chain to be considered "good". Any more than 13 degrees, and it is on the verge of jumping cogs.

402 Well that's what I thought, and from what I'm reading it should perk it up a bit. It's had new rings and bearings, new distributor, timing curve is good, but it's a little doggy down low, no grunt.

Compression is about 150 across the board, 8 to 1 compression. One thing I noticed, I'm a big proponent of using a mechanics vacuum gauge for diagnostics and tuning. But I've never been able to get this thing into the 18" to 20" manifold vacuum at idle unless I advance the timing quite a lot past stock. It's not unusual to advance timing past stock, but I kind of thought the engine should reach those numbers at a stock factory initial timing. If my theory is correct I should see another 5 or 10 psi maybe on a compression test, and manifold vacuum run much better at factory timing settings, and it should run and idle better. It's real good now, just ... weak.

Posted by: Common Tater at August 10, 2019 12:50 AM (Jyo5m)

403 I did some searching. Three to five degrees slack is normal for a new chain; over ten, time to replace it. At nine degrees? may as well replace it.

Some Fords had a nylon wear surface molded to the camshaft gear (302's in the '70's). If that wore off, flakes got in the oil pump, and twisted off the distributor drive shaft.

Roller chains seem to hold up better than the 'silent" chains.

Well, you cam timing is going to be about 9 degrees late, isn't it? You can adjust distributor timing, but the cam timing is what it is. Changing timing chains is not very hard to do. If you have not changed the water pump in recent memory, may as well do that, too, since it will be coming out anyway.

Also, check your valve lift. Early '70's Chevy 350's had a problem with soft cams, and lobes on the rear cylinders would wear down to nubbins. Engine would slowly lose power, but ran smooth. When lift gets to near-zero, though, loud carb backfires occur all the time.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at August 10, 2019 12:57 AM (abNpZ)

408 The thing with camshaft phasing, ya really have to use a degree wheel and see what's what. The keyway error on crankshaft and camshaft gear during manufacture, and consistency in the camshaft itself, the errors might cancel out, or they can stack up. Then they sell offset woodruff keys to advance or retard the camshaft phasing. The really slick setups have crankshaft timing chain gears with offset keyways in different degrees.

I am replacing the timing set tomorrow, but I don't foresee a degree wheel in my future. It should help quite a bit though just getting everything setup according to Hoyle.

Timing chain tensioners, on those engines so fitted, usually have a shoe faced with hard rubber, or nylon, or Delrin. Less often, a roller. Very common on Japanese 4 cylinders, back in the day. Now, they nearly all use cog belts, outside of the oiling system.

Get a Studebaker V8. Or six. They use timing gears, no chain, and slack is well under one degree. The gears do wear, and torsional vibration in the cam and distributor can occur, but the slack is still virtually undetectable. Usually the piston rings wore out before the timing gears became a problem.

415 Yeah, that was the old Chevy 305s as I recall, the camshaft would wear down to a broom handle.

Thing is I don't have a degree wheel nor a dial indicator and fixtures. I've read how to do it, it's not too bad, but I don't want to make a career out of it.

Yes it is common to advance ignition timing to compensate for stretch. All chains stretch or wear, it just gets worse over time. Some will add in a few degrees of camshaft phasing to compensate for that. I paid to have the engine rebuilt a long time ago, and all the shit he was supposed to do ... he didn't. I fucked up, I trusted him.

Well, the engine runs, now with a tired chain. It surely will run better with a new chain and gears. And even if the keyway is half a degree off, you are still better off than with nine degrees of slack, aren't you?

If you were building a race engine, and wanted to wring every last driblet of power out of it, you would already be degree-wheeling the living snot out of it, wouldn't you?

421 ...Get a Studebaker V8. Or six. They use timing gears, no chain, and slack is well under one degree. The gears do wear, and torsional vibration in the cam and distributor can occur, but the slack is still virtually undetectable. Usually the piston rings wore out before the timing gears became a problem.

The non-road-legal RACING version of the Honda VFR-750, early '90s, was the RC-750.

Timing gear tower, vs. chains or belts.

422 Compression is about 150 across the board, 8 to 1 compression. One thing
I noticed, I'm a big proponent of using a mechanics vacuum gauge for
diagnostics and tuning. But I've never been able to get this thing into
the 18" to 20" manifold vacuum at idle unless I advance the timing quite
a lot past stock. It's not unusual to advance timing past stock, but I
kind of thought the engine should reach those numbers at a stock factory
initial timing. If my theory is correct I should see another 5 or 10
psi maybe on a compression test, and manifold vacuum run much better at
factory timing settings, and it should run and idle better. It's real
good now, just ... weak.

The point in time at which I began to be sucked in the vortex of superiority of Studebaker's PRODUCTION engineering.

Other contemporary makers might've pushed some better powerplants out their factories and lines.

But that one factoid of the Studebaker engine, convinces me that they were made for the ages, and not just to be worn out and discarded for the next hot thing down the line.

Advantage: Studebaker.

And if I can find a first generation model, I'll just need to find a horse to pull it.

435 If you were building a race engine, and wanted to wring every last driblet of power out of it, you would already be degree-wheeling the living snot out of it, wouldn't you?
-------------

Yes, but even a stock engine, a daily driver, can benefit from degreeing the cam. Because there's no way to know how far off ot might be due to production tolerances. The crank keyway could/would be off slightly. The crank gear keyway can be off slightly. Same with the camshaft keyway and gear keyway. All those production tolerance errors can add up or stack up. That's why people degree a cam. Then the camshaft itself can be messed up. Or inconsistent across lobes etc.

My problem, when I tear into something, I fall prey to the "Well as long as I'm in here, I might as well do ______"; start measuring everything, of course it's way out of spec. So a simple valve seal replacement ends up rebuilding the entire engine.. I'm trying to stay focused here ...

I suspect it will be another one of those "shoulda done a long time ago" deals.

Didja hear about the auction in Minnesota? Some old Farmer passed, age 88, last name Graham, he amassed over 400 cars, I think it's this weekend. Lots of vintage Studes and Fords and generally cool shit.

No, nothing like that on the balancer. It has solid lifters, I have it tuned up pretty well I suppose, hopefully this tightens it up. Has the same firing order as a flathead, for some reason this makes for a unique exhaust note. Sounds good with dual exhaust especially.

448 The "InOp1" mark on the balancer is in addition to TDC I'm sure, it's there to help in degreeing the cam? Or?

A rough idea of camshaft phasing on most V8 can be deduced by observing that when #1 is at TDC compression #6 valves will be at overlap and vice versa. This doesn't work on Buick Nailheads.

515 Good Morning Morons; today is Saturday, August 10, 2019. On this day in 1995 Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols were indicted for the Oklahoma City bombing. Michael Fortier had plead guilty in a plea-bargain for his testimony. McVeigh was executed by lethal injection on June 11, 2001. Terry Nichols was sentenced to 161 consecutive life terms without the possibility of parole, and is incarcerated at ADX Florence, a super maximum security prison near Florence, Colorado.

516 Potential shooter enters a Walmart in MO in body armor and carrying a rifle. He was detained by an honest man with a CCW permit before he shot anybody. The 20-year-old man said he wanted to see whether the store would respect his Second Amendment rights, according to a probable cause statement released Friday. One wonders what he will be charged with.

556 Many of the businesses that we do business with locally have some kind of customer rewards program, usually associated with our phone number.

And in most cases, the cashier's screen will reveal the name of the account holder. Which oddly enough, usually shows mrs VIA's name, when I give our number to the clerk.

And when it does, I usually say that I am self identifying as Mrs VIA today.

And almost without fail, I get a response from the clerk showing some type of rejection of the popular idea that a person can just identify with any gender that they wish. And then we both get a chuckle out of how stupid the world has become.

Black, white, young, old...it doesn't matter. Ain't nobody buying the progressive bullshit on this stuff.

I do links up in a pan with a lid on them. Let them cook on medium for about 4 minutes, turn, put the lid back on and cook for another 4. Remove from heat while I'm cooking the eggs. They brown up nice, and alllll the popping grease stays (mostly) contained in the lid/pan

Or invent anything (other than another way to fool you into forfeiting your rights and your capacity for independent thought).

Anything that removes you from, or increases your likelihood of escaping, their confined and controlled sphere of supplicating servitude and dependence -- very, very disturbing.
