The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“We are hugely disappointed to learn of this, and it is being dealt with in cooperation with the relevant authorities. Salford City does not tolerate the use of racist or abusive language or behaviour and we will take relevant action against the person responsible in conjunction with Greater Manchester Police" Spokesperson for Salford City


Quote II

The next time a legislator, mayor, or governor rails about plastic straws or the Paris Climate Accord, be assured that his state’s roads are clogged, his public schools failing—and he is clueless or indifferent about it.Victor Davis Hanson


Quote III

“Equality is a fundamental right of every citizen and a duty of our society,” she declares. “Equal opportunities are not only an indispensable feature of a democratic society, but also a crucial foundation for a nation’s innovation, economy and general well-being.Maddalena Marini


Quote IV

“Many of the most serious diseases today are a function of aging. Thus, identifying the molecular mechanisms and treatments of aging should be an urgent priority. Unless we address aging at its root cause, we’re not going to continue our linear, upward progress toward longer and longer life spans.” David Sinclair, a geneticist at Harvard Medical School


Quote V

In any event, thanks to immigrants, all Americans are learning the vital importance of ethnic chauvinism and territorial sovereignty for your own ethnic group.

The epitaph on the El Paso Walmart mass shooting should be: Diversity is a strength! Ann Coulter


Quote VI

“A career in Washington was never my objective. My objective has always been to address significant challenges this nation faces: trade, health care, immigration, and infrastructure to name just a few.

“However, it appears to me that rhetoric overwhelms policy, and politics consumes much of the oxygen in this city. The time has come to make a difference for my family – to focus my time and energy upon them, their needs, their goals, As George Washington is quoted: ‘I would rather be on my farm than emperor of the world.’”Rep. Paul Mitchell

F*ck Netflix.

Barack and Michelle Obama are gearing up for the release of their new Netflix film, American Factory, which explores the Unites States’ heartland economy.

The Obamas’ film, which largely profiles a factory in Ohio, has been described as “anti-Trump” in a review published in POLITICO.

Of course they used a GoFundMe campaign. Socialists can only use other people's money. Until it runs out.

Three Chicago teachers and a union organizer used a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for a trip to Venezuela. The teachers, all members of the Chicago Teachers Union, wrote public blogs and social media posts casting the socialist government of the country in a favorable light.

The Chicago Tribune reported Monday that the educators have been criticized for their trip and praise of Venezuela President Nicolas Maduro. The Chicago Teachers Union also distanced itself from those who went on the trip, putting out a statement that it was not an official union trip and was not funded by the union.

“Members go all kinds of places in the summer. This was neither an official trip nor something that was funded by the union,” CTU president Jesse Sharkey told WTTW’s “Chicago Tonight.” “This is a group of people who are members of the CTU who decided to go to Venezuela.”

Frightening they are anywhere near children.

Don't feel bad bears. I wouldn't want to interact with this tourist either.


The note reads as follows. “Our visit was wonderful but we never saw any bears. Please train your bears to be where guests can see them. This was an expensive trip to not get to see bears.

Anyone can understand spending a lot of money on a vacation and it not living up to your expectations. That is just bad luck. But, I cannot wrap my head around the expectation of the bears being trained to be where visitors can regularly see them. I don’t think this person understands nature or the fact that Yellowstone is NOT a zoo.

Vaping linked health issues in 14 states reported.

In one Wisconsin case, a 26-year-old man with asthma ended up in an intensive care unit in July with difficulty breathing after vaping THC oil he bought on the street, NPR reported. (THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol is the primary psychoactive ingredient in marijuana.) The man’s blood-oxygen levels dropped to just 10% and he was placed in medically induced coma.

Now out of the hospital, he told NPR that he suspects his illness was linked to the THC oil. "The oil in the cartridge was really watered down. And it was pee-colored, it wasn't supposed to be that color, it's supposed to be dark amber," he said.

He cautioned other people who vape THC: "If you are going to smoke, just stick to the dispensaries. Don't buy stuff off the street where you don't know where it's coming from."


If you buy THC oil in WI, you truly are an idiot. There is no legal marijuana in the state.

Bernie Sanders. Even a broken clock is right twice a day.

Democratic presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) wants to put an end to police use of facial recognition software. Sanders called for the ban as part of a criminal justice reform plan introduced today ahead of a two-day tour of South Carolina.

The plan also calls for the ban of for-profit prisons and would revoke the practice of law enforcement agencies benefiting from civil asset forfeitures.

Does the internet play too large a part of our lives? This is what would happen if the internet shut down suddenly.

In the event of a global internet shutdown…

…autonomous vehicles freeze in place almost instantly. On highways, automatic tolls no longer allow any vehicle to go through them, creating massive traffic jams.

…on the streets, myriad passersby look at their empty-shell communicative devices, while bearing witness to several crashes of postal or other delivery drones.

…fully-automated sellers and cashiers, now disconnected, lead to the expeditious shutdown of supermarkets and hypermarkets which exclusively rely on them. In any case, a cashless, electronic currency-based society wouldn’t now know how to pay for things.

…vast regions are deprived of electricity, as providers are no longer able to receive correctly information from their sensors on the power grid and at individuals’ homes, and are no longer able to properly manage the supply of many areas.

…almost all the worldwide industrial production stalls. Financial centers have immediately suspended all their operations, canceling, in passing, all orders currently being processed.

And so on…

A President Marianne Williamson would be a hoot, if she weren't so dangerous.

She called the elite U.S. war machine “obsolete” and that “we can no longer rely on force to rid ourselves of international enemies.”

“The planet has become too small for that, and in so doing, we overburden our military by asking them to compensate for the other work that we choose not to do, and we are less effective, and less secure, because of our choices,” said Ms. Williamson, author of several best-selling inspirational books.

Earlier, Ms. Williamson floated plans for a new Department of Children and Youth that would focus on protecting and uplifting the country’s children.

There are "Americans" who hate with enough of it to kill other Americans. Not sure how the world wide peace plan would work. Delusional.

I like my house at 70 degrees in the heating season. I like my house at 72 degrees in the cooling season. The government can keep their damn hands off my thermostat. My body, my choice.

Energy Star, the federal program from the DOE and the Environmental Protection Agency, said the coolest you should keep your home is 78 degrees when you're home.

When you're at work or away, the program recommends setting it at 85 degrees. When you're sleeping, Energy Star said to set the thermostat at 82 degrees.

Underwear, socks and Genius Award Winner.

A would-be burglar wearing underwear as a mask and socks as gloves attempted a forced entry in the 5:00 hour Sunday morning August 11th at the Apex Cannabis located at 21502 East Gilbert Road in Otis Orchards.

The suspect prepared for the many security cameras at the cannabis shop by wrapping underwear around his head in a mask-like disguise. He used a pry bar to attempt entry but set off the alarm alerting law enforcement.

Once a mother, always a mother. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Ada Keating, a 98-year-old mother of four, recently moved into a care home in Huyton, Liverpool, not because she couldn’t take care of herself, but to look after her 80-year-old son Tom.


Tom Keating became a resident of the Moss View retirement home in 2016, when it became clear that he was no longer able to care for himself. His mother Ada joined him after about a year, when it became apparent that he would require additional support. The mother and son, originally from Wavertree, share a special bond, as Tom never married and had always lived with Ada. Tom was a painter and decorator at HE Simm building services before his retirement, while Ada was an auxiliary nurse at the former Mill Road Hospital. They lived together in the family home for most of their lives, and now do so again, in a retirement home.

Meh. It'll be a big flop. Lots of people might watch it just because they think they should ... but it will be the last Barky production they waste time on.

Of course, it will win tons of awards and shit.

Posted by: ThePrimordialOrderedPair at August 20, 2019 10:10 PM (EcqY2)

28
Was the Obama / anti-Trump movie ever supposed to actually make any money, or is it just another propaganda tool, like corporate owned and losing 75% of their market CNN has become?

Because we all know that corporations do not lose money or after a while they go out of business.

Since CNN is such a loser with ratings, the payoff is being measured by their owners in something other than just money.

So has Netflix.

29 "...vast regions are deprived of electricity, as providers are no longer able to receive correctly information from their sensors on the power grid and at individuals' homes, and are no longer able to properly manage the supply of many areas."

This would actually not be the case for most of the area my utility covers. We could man the substations and use radios to coordinate with the operations center. It would be difficult and expensive - since the people at the subs would be making IBEW overtime - but it's possible. Tracing and repairing outages would be rough.

30 Thin Lizzy. I played the shit out their Live and Dangerous album. I still have it on LP, actually. Still sounds great, no skips, minimal popping. Too many live albums suck, but there are some that are better than the studio recordings. this is one of them.

I also like KISS Alive (the first one - the rest are ass)
and Grand Funk Railroad Caught in the Act.

But damn, I love Thin Lizzy.

58 Bears in Yellowstone - when I was a kid and my parents took me there, it was when they still allowed all the bears to line up on the side of the road and beg for food. It looked cool, but it was a shameful and dangerous thing to allow, which is why they'd made a big effort to ban that.

My wife's family has a picture that we just call "The Hand", it's of her when she's about 5. Her family was at Yellowstone, and her 11 year old sister had a brownie camera, and had her little sister pose and smile about 10' in front of a bear that had wandered into the campsite.

Coming down from the top of the scene is a very blurred image of a hand coming down, very fast, to yank that girl out of there. One of the parents had just noticed what was going on.

73 82 degrees? Seriously?

I mean, I don't like it to be a freezer in my place during the summer, and I prefer to sleep with the windows open when I can, but 77 is about the warmest I can have it at night this time of year.

I don't see how anyone could sleep if it was 82 degrees inside. The AC in my apartment once broke down a few Augusts back, and even with the ceiling fan going full blast, I literally got woken up with the heat. No. Thank. You.

When you're at work or away, the program recommends setting it at 85 degrees. When you're sleeping, Energy Star said to set the thermostat at 82 degrees.


Nope. I keep my home at 60 degrees in the winter. I'm used to it being cool now. So, in the summer I set it at 69. Liberals want to control every aspect of our lives.

The lack of preparedness for the waiting 9.0 earthquake of the west coast, Vancouver Is, BC south to Point Mendicino in CA is incredible. The tsunami will be ferocious.
No electricity, airports, highways or bridges. I live east of the mountains and I'll see severe shaking here. Infrastructure destroyed. No food, water or fuel in the worst hit areas.
I watched a state senate hearing yesterday and these dolts were clueless. Add in that the governor of Oregon bewailed the passage of a measure that she signed, which allows for more construction of all kinds along the coast in tsunami zones.
I'm ranting, I know. Sorry. I have friends on the westside and I fear for them.

"In my generation, when I got out of school, when Bobby Kennedy and Dr. King had been assassinated in the 70s, the late 70s, I got engaged," Biden said

"Up to that time, you remember-none of you women will remember this, but a couple men will remember it," he said

Missing here is - SHOOT HIM.
Posted by: Boswell


The late friend of my late uncle, wanted to go bear hunting in Alaska, with a bow and arrow.

He got the permit and was allowed to take a bear. So he goes out, and finds a bear, and shoots it with his compound hunting bow. Boy was that bear mad. He chased him up a tree, and kept him up there for about 30 hours. The bear took off to hunt something down, and dragged it back and ate it at the bottom of the tree, all the time looking at my uncle's friend.

Finally, as he had been missing for a long time, Indian guides came out to look for him, with rifles.
Well they shot and killed the bear, so my uncle's friend could get down.

Is this a true story?

Chicago public school teachers are out-and-proud communists. It's no secret. Chicago is a magnet for commie laborites. I lived there, a half-block from the office of the IWW. Daily Worker was peddled on street corners. Bernardine Dohrn grew up two blocks over from where I did. My teenage years were "The Days of Rage" of the leftists.

Bombings were common, though usually attributed to Puerto-Rican independence groups. One bombing occurred on Sheffield Ave, two blocks north of Wrigley Field, my usual walking route to the L station. I walked by a movie theater vestibule one morning, noticed a crater in the concrete. Looked across the street: all the windows in the three-story apartment building had been shattered by the focused blast.

239 Have no desire to see bears in the wild, and I've done plenty of camping in their habits. About 5 years ago one young bear was roaming in my area, and crowds were flocking to try and see it. He disappeared eventually. No one know's where.

Anyway, the most pathetic zoo I've ever seen was at Uber Gatlinburg 10 yrs ago. I think there were 4 bears there in a concrete pit like an empty inground pool. No habitat. Nothing. Just a bunch of bears in a concrete pit.

The write ups there seemed to be proud, and maybe they did other things to take care of them, but when I was there it was disgusting.

I just had some of Miley's zucchini casserole. She added some of our squash, which included some trans-squash.

What is trans-squash, you ask? Well, one of my squash plants must've gotten its chromosomes screwed up, because it's putting on these sort of greenish things. It's squash that identifies as zucchini.

It was good, though.

The Inupiat Eskimos, while technically Inuit, don't call themselves that. The Yupik Eskimos are a separate group with a different, though related, language (think French versus Italian). The Aleut language is also related, but more distantly.

But yeah, the Interior is chock full of Athabascans/Na Dene people. With very few exceptions, the Eskimos and Aleuts are coastal peoples.

"The most overplayed song ever?" During my two-year stint as deaf sound
man for a bar band, the most requested song was the repulsive "Proud
Mary." Even two encore performances of the song were not enough to
satisfy our audiences. I blame beer.


I helped open up a bar not far from Casa Backwardio about 15 years ago where the owner absolutely would not allow the song Mustang Sally to be played. She got up on stage one night when another band played the beginning of it and had the sound guy turn them off.
After that night, she got a little sign made up that had that Euroweenie circle/slash-through-it sign thingy over the name and put it right next to the stage where everybody could see it. She was dead serious about it.

If I had a dollar for every time I've played tha...hey,wait a minute. I do have a dollar for every time I've played that song.

264 If a hit song was/is by a Canadian artist and you think it's overplayed here in the States, it's being way overplayed in Canada because of CanCon rules for radio (Canadian Content). So, for example, if you thought "My Heart Will Go On" was everywhere on the radio, up in Canuckistan there were radio stations playing it once an hour.


I remember "Life is a Highway" being driven into the ground more than a year after it first was a hit.

The buffalo walked up to the car, put it's head down and pushed us sideways a few feet. There was pandemonium and much screaming.

Until the day my Dad passed away, my Mom would comment on any idiotic idea popped into my Dad's head by saying "Jerry, remember the Buffalo."

Do you all remember what that was like, when you were a kid and did not know anything and heard a song on the radio and they did not tell you what the hell it was? You knew you liked it and wanted to hear more, but you could not instantly find out the song title, artist and also listen to more? Immigrant Song was like that for me.

Quick scan did not reveal anyone pointing out that states already have widely varying laws on transfers/background checks, and that most of the national population therefore already faces checks for all gun transfers, commercial or private. Thus, a half-moot, or more, issue.


"Red flag" is a much worse thing. Trump made dumb noises about this earlier*. Again, already much of this wildly unconstitutional crap at state level [why has this not been challenged in court?]. That's really the live issue at the moment.


* yes, I understand it's clever to make insincere noises about action you'll never take in the end, especially when 1] literally not a soul in your very large base has any interest in the action 2] there is absolutely zero wider political demand for such action, or talk, and 3] there is significant hazard to the stupid action in question, and what is really called for is a frontal assault of facts and common sense to delegitimize the very concept, so as to hasten its marginalization - it's just that it's not remotely clever, or needed, and of course wouldn't be considered on any other issue with similar substance and politix

...on the streets, myriad passersby look at their empty-shell communicative devices, while bearing witness to several crashes of postal or other delivery drones.

point and laugh, somebody has to do it

...fully-automated sellers and cashiers, now disconnected, lead to the expeditious shutdown of supermarkets and hypermarkets which exclusively rely on them. In any case, a cashless, electronic currency-based society wouldn't now know how to pay for things.

cash is king

...vast regions are deprived of electricity, as providers are no longer able to receive correctly information from their sensors on the power grid and at individuals' homes, and are no longer able to properly manage the supply of many areas.

One of my boomer buddies thinks Janis Joplin is the epitome of musical perfection. He says "Before she went on stage, she'd always down a quart of whiskey." To him, this is high praise of art. He also thinks hippies were the best-ever product of our civilization.

Posted by: FireHorse at August 20, 2019 10:12 PM (jh17W)

Don't think the Canucks play their home games on an island. Downtown Vancouver is basically a peninsula. Vancouver Harbour on the north side, English Bay on the west, and False Creek on the south. False Creek would be described as a "bayou" by our friends in Louisiana. But there is a not-so-narrow neck of land between the head of False Creek and Vancouver Harbour. IIRC, the hockey arena is near Seymour Street and the Georgia Viaduct. A long time ago, there used to be a gasometer near there.

Thomas Matthew McVicker was arrested in Indianapolis on Friday by Indiana State Police troopers and FBI agents. It's the most recent case in a string of men being arrested around the country for threatening to carry out shootings.

I personally think folks should work to live in temperatures closer to ambient. It saves you money and it means when the SHTF you're better adapted. But, I doubt most homes nowadays could even be comfortable at 80ish, given how little the a/c would run (a lot of places, but definitely not all) and the humidity would climb and a lot of things would have problems. And one of the big ones would be electronics. If you want to up the inside temperature by ~15F, you're going to have issues no matter what the specs say.

And if you'll go back and listen to some of Gary Puckett and the Union Gap from the '60s, you'll hear a great many similarities.

534 Rush devoted almost his entire show yesterday on the leaked NYT plan to rewrite American history. He claimed that offering counter-arguments would legitimize the idiotic position in the first instance. I've been arguing that for years on virtually every lefty claim based on lies - why are you (Rush, Hannity, Prager, et al) giving credence to the lie by arguing a counter point? Too often the right does that to itself - whereas the left just screeches "lie lie lie...." at the outset. This is what sustains the left as a viable party - the many useful idiots on the right, many of whom were outed in the nevertrump bowel movement.

Ran across a band from the Portland area, a band I actually met in Montana, in 1992-ish, was Love on Ice. They were good guys, and they seemed more edgy, more like Alice in Chains than Pearl Drops. Also got an Aerosmith vibe. I have Nude, which was the album they were promoting at the time. Damn good music. kind of sucks that they never got noticed by whatever fuck-nozzles make those kind of decisions.

580 Back before I stopped listening to the same sh!t over and over, I liked Green Day. Yes, they are progressive political f*ckheads! But they had a lot of songs I liked. They were really good at capturing teen male anomie. Very f*cking tight performers. Their first couple albums had great punk covers.

I saw them at the Riviera in Chicago on the Nimrod tour. I was the oldest person in the audience. I still can't believe how tight they were: microsecond precision at whirlwind tempo. Unbelievable stamina.

They had a bunch of fun with the audience, brought a random kid up on stage to play guitar on one song, who did great. Then they made him stage dive into the audience. Armstrong had everybody throw their shirts up to the stage, and he put all of them on, bulging like the Michelin Man. Dirnt had about ten new Fenders in the shipping cartons, wrecked them all at the end.

They got married, had kids, and were still able to keep up their breakneck performance ability. Now I never listen to the same track of music twice. Always seeking new stuff, never relistening to old stuff. Don't know what they're doing now. Wouldn't mind meeting them someday.

Goodness gracious, why would anybody listen to that dreck, let alone be a fan? It's not just perverse, but soul-killing.

624 Well, put one in the "win" column today. My long-going struggle with the Suburban transmission rebuild was finally rewarded with success. Got the fluids in the transfer case and transmission. Since it was on the hoist already, I replaced some bad rubber bushings on one of the rear shock absorbers. Got it down, and hooked up the battery. Ignition was on already. Strange, that. Started it up, and it moved in reverse OK. Backed it off the hoist, topped off the tranny, and went for a drive. One, two, three, four, all the gears were there, and the shifts silken smooth, too.

Got home, and engine would not shut off. WTF? Pulled out fuel pump relay, engine stopped. Disconnected battery. Found I had Park, Reverse, Neutral, Drive, and no more. Took covers off steering column. Nothing wrong there. Crawled under the vehicle, unbolted the shift lever from the manual valve shaft, flipped it over, and bolted it back on. That fixed it! Now I have all gear selector positions, and the ignition switch goes to "off" and the key comes out.

While I had the dash apart, I stripped out the wretched remote-start gadget, and mended the spliced wires.

And then I replaced the grille and the composite headlamps with less-damaged ones from my dead '96 Diesel Suburban.

Another road test, everything works! Woo-hoo!

I knew in an instant how strange it was. Which is why I sent it to you at the first opportunity. Not that you're strange. But it is.

Here's a challenge for you with it though.

Figure out what you can do with it, and cut a track of something recognizable.

Doesn't have to be something that would Chart. Just something to prove the damn thing out.

Now, whether you mount it on your wall as a display, or send it along to another musician who might actually find an affinity for the thing, I don't care.

in an interview, beck said his girlfriend dragged him to a club to hear hendrix ("you've got to see this guy"), then he went home and put his guitars in their cases and said he was done.

beck said one of his greatest moments was when hendrix later asked him how he did some riff.

Unless we address aging at its root cause, we’re not going to continue our linear, upward progress toward longer and longer life spans.” David Sinclair, a geneticist at Harvard Medical School


Several years ago an article in Forbes on a study of longevity. It focused on those who lived extraordinarily long lives and they discovered it was DNA.

It wasn't their diet, (ate and drank what they wanted) or their life style (smokers); It was that these things did not damage their DNA so they stayed healthy and lived to a very happy old, old age.

Poor health is directly related to our fragile DNA and until they figure out how to fix that the golden mean is our best rule and follow you doctors orders.

I second this motion, but with an addendum.

Fire an entire Kaytusha Battery of Qassams into the thing, and fuck numbering the rocks.

Just ship them all to Iran, and tell them to get busy with the rebuilding.

I am more grateful for that statement than you might imagine.

My late Step Mom bought that thing with the highest hopes. But as was her wont, it sat idle, along with her keyboard, sewing machine and so many other interests of momentary passions.

But she told me how much she wanted to learn to play an instrument, and that Strumstick seemed to her the anwer to her dreams.

It's just that her dreams lacked learning, practice and dedication.

I've avoided that trap, and have mastered the AM/FM, CD, Cassette, Reel to Reel, LP and have even dabbled with the all but forgotten 8 Track.

I still havent' mastered the MP-3 though. I don't know how to develop the film.

If you have a chance to see The Art Of Racing In The Rain, do it. Plot summary: dog narrates the life of a family.

It is literally the kind of movie where forty-plus-year-old guys are at each other with "were you crying when..." If you're not crying half the time and laughing half the time you're not human.

It's a very tight film, someone could have done a three-hour picture out of this but it isn't one of those and it's better for it. You could quibble that flattens the character development of some minor characters like the team manager but...they're minor characters. This film never drags.

The bunch I saw it with more or less agreed that it's the best film Kevin Costner's ever done. If you love him, you'll love it. If you hate him, you'll love it.

Dedication is key. Anybody can play an instrument if they have the dedication. Another major thing is if you have an ear for music or not. If you don't its a real uphill battle. If you can tell when something don't sound right, then you probably can tell when something is right, and if you can do that then its just time and effort. The thing I see a lot when it comes to people learning guitar is they quit right on the cusp of payoff. You have to gauge progress in months, not days. For the average beginner you have to get over the 6 month hump, because thats where things start to fall in place. If you're a prodigy thats one thing, but the average person has to get past the 6 month point, and maybe up to a year before all kinds of good things start to happen. Finger strength, muscle memory, etc all start to kick in down the road, not in 2 weeks. I see many quit too early. I taught a women in her 40's that I know how to play over the internet who never touched a guitar in her life. She had one in the closet she got for her daughter. In 2 months she was sight reading classical tabs and learning classical guitar songs on her own. Frigging classical, and not easy songs either. She was determined, she played about 2 hours a day, and she did really good. She got over that 6 month hump and was on her way.

You have music in your background. No way you couldn't learn guitar. The woman I was talking about played sax in school when she was young. She mentioned something about not always knowing where she was on the sheet music so sometimes she would fake it and it would sound right. I said ok, for one thing, you're weren't faking it, something was guiding you, and that was your ear and your familiarity with your instrument, so there is nothing standing in your way with guitar. You're in the same boat.

I was a Ford Certified sales rep and Internet Sales Manager, from '99 till '06.

The parts-list difference between an F-250 3/4 ton, and F-350 1 ton, single rear wheel Super Duty truck, was a rather short list, indeed.

It was cheaper to buy the 250, and pay for aftermarket upgrades to springs n' shocks, then to cough up the full ticket for the 350 at the dealer.

Not to mention, the 8,800 GVWR limit for "commercial" vehicles in Texas in that era. They've since raised it to 10,000 lbs.

But then, the 250 was fine on one's Class C regular driver's license. The 350 could get you an offense for lacking a Class B CDL.

Damn near identical trucks, minor difference 'tween shocks, springs and such.

Governments tend to default to the stoopid.

"Vaping" does not involve THC, weed, pot, MJ, etc. "Vaping" involves nicotine juice only.

You can vape THC oil, but that is not generic "vaping".

Good lord.

Furthermore, you're right about being able to get THC oil in Wisconsin. If only there were a way - ANY way - to get things from one state to another. That would be an astounding invention. Something like a road, or a train, plane, bus, etc. Won't someone invent one of those things ?

775 This recommendation must have been written by Obama's EPA. They are FOS, at least for the Southern half of the country where summer temperature runs in the mid to upper 90s.


Energy Star, the federal program from the DOE and the Environmental

degrees when you're home.




When you're at work or away, the program recommends setting it at 85
degrees. When you're sleeping, Energy Star said to set the thermostat at
82 degrees.





Running your temperature up and down like that every day will use more electricity than leaving it stable at 80F. I know, I used to track my KW usage daily and I used to work for a public utility.


I leave my thermostat set for the heat pump to cycle on at 78.5F and off at 77.9F in the Summer. I set it to maintain about 72F - 73F in the Winter. I can't remember where it actually cycles on and off.

Find the exterior end point of the condensate drain line.

Take your wet/dry vac, and put the suction hose over that end of the line.

Wrap towels or what-not around the joint between the shopvac hose and the drain line.

Turn on Shopvac, and suck the sludge and crap out of the line.

(Make sure your shopvac has either a wet filter, or no filter in place for this. The standard paper filter will get ruined)

The the line not draining should not ordinarily stop the unit from working unless a separate switch to stop it has been installed on the pan. If you want the drain to not clog up after you get it unstopped you should establish a flushing schedule and flush highly chlorinated water down it periodically. If yoy are going to try to blow air through it you should blow from the attic out, otherwise you are going to get a mess in the attic.

Personally I would never have an attic unit in the first place. They are just asking for trouble.

Posted by: Vic at August 21, 2019 06:04 AM (mpXpK)

787 JAS

Unless you use a reducer, when trying to 'blow out' the condensate line, there are instances where drain lines have been over pressurized. Joints then leak. Not visible right away, but showing up days later in the most difficult to access locations. And at a minimum, blowing the line clear creates this nasty mess inside the house. Sometimes looking like an elephant with a pustulating STD just had an orgasm on the walls and ceiling of the area where your A/C condenser is.



Shopvac on suction reduces the likelihood of this happening

With a full size shopvac, I have had success by simply wrapping my hand around the joint between the hose and the PVC pipe, and letting 'er rip.

It doesn't have to be an absolutely air tight seal.

And like Vic suggested, aperiodic dose of chlorinated water into the pan to prevent crap from growing back.

Plumbing Supply houses also sell tablets intended for the same purpose.
If you can gain easy access to the drain pan, simply set one in the pan, and let it do its job.

The voters here have to approve a school bond issue. They floated one a few years ago supposedly to get rid of the temporary units at the local elementary school near me and install permanent buildings. School bonds (with the "temporary" tax increases can ONLY be used for capitol projects and not operating costs).

It original vote held during a November regular election was defeated by a 67% margin.The crooked SOBs held another vote 3 months later as an unadvertised "special election" and gave all the county workers the day off to vote. It passed with a 67% majority with a total of 600 people voting in a county of 70,000.

819 "There is a primary drain and a secondary and they join about three feet apart. A clog in the main drain will stop both from working. "

Yeh....sounds like the design is such that when working properly, all condensate flows directly from the interior of the evaporator unit to the primary drain line, leaving the large pan that the unit sits in completely dry.

If for whatever reason, clogging of the short primary line, leakage of the internal condensate trough inside the cabinet that the primary line connects to, or what not...then the condensate will be caught by the drain pan, and be drained off by the secondary drain line into the common main line to the outside of the home.

So that would be your first safely feature.

Then, the float switch in the secondary pan will kill power, stopping production of condensate if the secondary drain fails to drain for some reason.

That is your second safety feature in the design.

And if the common line downstream of the junction of the two drains is clogged, the symptoms you are experiencing is exactly what you would be facing.

Either way, within ten minutes of firing up the shopvac, you'll know if you're on the right track or not.

When you're at work or away, the program recommends setting it at 85 degrees.

When you're sleeping, Energy Star said to set the thermostat at 82 degrees.

They still use the gates, with the EZPass electronic toll collection at the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel.

Stated reason is to allow for positive entry control in case of weather, or other such events.

But for the most part...yeh, no gates around these parts.

850 Hah, Bruce! My BIL's office internet stopped working right before he came (it was his daughter's birthday party), so when he told the manager that, she knew it was not just them. She then got one of her employees to call her dad, who works for the ISP, and got info from him. Five counties in Iowa lost internet on a Friday night, which doesn't sound so bad, except this is the ISP that the super-popular pizza chain uses. Even worse, gift cards are often used here, since they give 10% back to the local Christian school. I think they wound up writing down gift card numbers. Those poor cashiers.....

I have seen drain installs where there is a TEE with the base of it pointed up, and open to the atmosphere.

Not many, but some.

And if there is one, and the blockage is upstream of that, it will simply such air from the tee.

Unless the opening is blocked by something.

My pump has a float valve switch, that shuts off the system if the pan is filled, to prevent water damage. If you manually raise the float switch to trigger it and it doesn't run, that may be the problem.

Put another person near the drain pan connection, and see if they can hear air being drawn in at the pan.

If not, You have an air gap of some type in the system, allowing the vacuum from the shopvac to be broken.

Posted by: JAS at August 21, 2019 07:48 AM (I5SAg)

933 "So what does the float, switch?"

Usually, in installs like the one I suspect JAS has, it is the second safety feature to prevent water damage in the ceiling under the drain pan.

If the drain pan backs up, the float switch trips, killing the contactor control circuit for the cooling system.

Thus preventing the creation of more condensate, which would overflow from the pan, and leak into the ceiling.

What is the best way to clear the PVC drain line. Back in May I used Draino and an small auger which probably wasn't long enough but no problems until yesterday.
Today, we are going to blow air using a compressor from below. Any thoughts?

Keep your pressure as low as possible.

Drain line to sump pump on side of plenum.

Float switch activates to cause pump inside tank to pump water up...across the basement...and down to a siphon break, and drain into a laundry sink.

And a second switch to kill the power if the level rises above the cut-on point for the pump switch.

No one's ever going to resolve their daddy issues if they're still living at home expecting daddy to fix everything for them.

God thinks you're worth the effort and is alongside you and in you everyday in the Holy Spirit! You are important and you are appreciated!

996 We're getting driverless cars, drone deliveries and Google wants to make sure AIs get a vote!

Don't laugh, its just a matter of time. The Left has been preparing us for the day when the manufactured "problems" with voting are so overwhelming that the only "fix" is to use statistical sampling.

Examples of their manipulative work:

"There must be vote fraud because the election results are too far different than our polls."

"Too many voters are turned away from the polls because of racism and white supremacy"

"Russians have hacked the voting machines"

They weren't "banned" by a person. They were identified by a computer program that automatically deleted them. Someone wrote some code that was uleased on the world without understanding how "well" it worked. This is what will be happening to people soon.

1005 Back in the days of cassette tapes and before the ubiquitous internet, we in the Navy would record hours of radio for replay on deployment. "Crazy on a Ship of Fools" was the first song on one of my tapes, recorded from some rock station in San Diego in January 1990. I still have it somewhere, but I don't think I have a tape player anymore to play it.
