Magpies are very smart and I have witnessed one staring down two full size cats who are looking everywhere but at the bird from under cover.
They're related to crows and ravens, may well be rayciss but are tough and can be very mean.

40 you know, the Biden being bitter, old, snappish, weirdo Biden towards a supplicating reporter thing...we need to point out it's not just "what if trump did it" because when trump snapped it's not after an innocent answer but after rude behavior (like fucknuts grabbing the mic from the intern) or bizarre hateful questions (like the conquistador who asked who can trust him because of "all his lies").

This was a straightforward question, much like when he challenged a union guy to a fist fight after being asked about the second amendment.

We were discussing earlier the consequences of inflation that are being seen and the attempt to hide increased prices with changes in product size.

Perhaps, as the staple commodities decrease in size to lower their production cost the size of models will also increase to lower their cost. Seems like there would be a catch in that plan though.

And they are advised to close the account of any terrorist, ie. any person who doesn't parrot the communist party mandated speech. With this being one of the banking industry's myriad secret orders.

Small retail banking would collapse, and that isn't going to happen. They have bank charters, you know, with investors and a board that is under fiduciary requirements that are fixed in writing - and they are highly regulated by the state and feds...they can't refuse banking services to individuals that have not been charged with real banking crimes, and those are hard to prove or present coherently in court, given the infinite manner in which we bank electronically. No, refusing bank services to millions of people just isn't going to work here.

TX is one of the three states that it's easy to set up residency if you don't have a permanent address. (The other two are SD and FL.) Get yourself an RV and become a TX resident!

Posted by: vmom stabby stabby stabby stabamillion at June 16, 2021 07:02 PM (oEn12)


What sort of touch up? I guess what I mean is seriousness of scratch/chips. The very best out there is a company called Dr Color Chip. But it's really not for large messes. At that point, it depends on the car brand.

https://drcolorchip.com/

There's also a zillion videos on YT that cover how to repair what type of problem. I learned a lot. My car so far it's only been chips and road-rash.

When I bought my car, the previous owner obviously never used the park assist, so they'd run the front into several parking curbs. I paid $500 for I think it was dent-doctor to come out, and he did the entire front of the car, and a few other spots which I thought was fine. A good paint kit is a chunk of that right there, and if you add in the Adam's or Griot's Garage random orbital buffer (or Harbor Freight you cheapskate) you're well on your way there + what your time is worth.

205 I've never understood why malls weren't scaled to the community more often. It's one thing to open up a place with 700 spots in LA, but just stupid to do the same thing in Barstow.
Posted by: qdpsteve at June 16, 2021 07:19 PM (L2ZTs)


A couple of reasons. First, if you spending the money on the land and construction, it makes more sense to build larger so that you have room for expansion. Second, I would imagine that most malls are built with the goal of attracting shoppers from more than the local community. Certain some of the big malls, such as the one near Barstow, seem to be geared towards that: they are destinations rather than simply somewhere locals run to for a quick birthday gift.

214 I believe the Texas Constitutional Carry Law will have no effect on the current Carry Law, meaning one must have a Carry License to carry concealed. The Concealed Carry was changed a few years ago to allow Open Carry, to cover unintentional 'brandishment' of a concealed firearm.

For at least 20 years, June in CA has been one of the hottest months. I just expect it now. In fact, this May we hit 105 for a couple of days. Then it cools off in July and August, several years in the past were so cool I couldn't even grow decent tomatoes. Tomorrow is supposed to be 100, revised downward a bit. Of course, they'll do rolling brownouts just to show us who's in charge.

If this administration started to require banks to shut down services to conservatives, the first thing that would happen would be a bank panic as everyone, people who don't know if they will get caught up in some unthinking dragnet, would attempt to withdraw currency as fast as they could. There would be enormous bank runs, at least until the fed and states closed all banking. And then lending would cease as banks would have little guidance and cash capital to do so, so the Feds would take over - and cash would be flooded into the economy to no avail - and then anything of value, a bar of gold, a silver coin, a house, even a chair, would soar in value....stealing and killing and violent crime just to survive and eat would rule the land. Dogs and Cats living together - mass hysteria...

Or scaled to sense. I grew up near the intersection of the circle freeway of our city with the major N-S highway, so they built a big mall on the next exit to that.

Then they built one 2 exits on, then a second mall across the street from the first one, then one in the exit between those two....

Then one hidden from all view in what used to be church seminary land once the brothers left....

it all got to be way way too much

Most of that blame goes to Shrub Bush for opening the wind floodgates, and Rick Perry for surfing that wave, before most knew how wasteful the damn things are.

Abbot's supporting them thus far, I think is more neglectful, lazy ignorance than green-focused devotion. Windmills need to be pounded into his mind though as just another issue to be "against" to ensure his re-election. Oh, and it's commonly said that they're not recyclable. Disagree. I think piles of towers and blades would make great fish attracting reefs on many a seabed.

317 So one of my 30 year-old KEFs developed a rattle--needs some kind of repair. I bought a pair of B&W DM305's on Farcebook for $50, which seemed like a steal. They sure look small, so we'll see.

There's a bunch of 3rd party repair stuff for vintage speakers as long as they're classic - KEF's would probably fit that. I still have some B+W DM14's in storage, bought in 1980. I was a JBL guy until friends took me to some Grateful Dead roady's house, and he had KEF 104/5's and McIntosh gear (and R to R of every dead show ever at Winterland). That sort of changed my outlook (on speakers, not the Dead). The ex still has my Thiel's, right when I was about to get all my shit the lockdown started - and she being she wouldn't let anybody even breath in her direction.

So, I bought some Focal Kanta No2's. to make up for it. YOLO! Actually, right as the lockdown started I'd been looking at 1028be's as they were on closeout and cheap - the dealer had some guy trade in some No2's for Sopra's, and gave me some mint for 50% off, just broken in. They're keepers. So is the BAT gear, French speakers and tubes...

Also not a bad idea, but it has to work within reason. Gold and land (and ammo and guns) are fine investments, but if the banks are shut down because White Supremacists, you don't want to have to wait three months to sell an acre so that you can go buy groceries.

All things in moderation, and there's no getting around that having a thousand or two thousand bucks handy can help day to day life in ways outside of Burning Times and buying colanders for facemasks. Hot water heater fails, tire blows, etc. etc. It's nice to be able to reach for that cushion.

Three times I've called and asked them to reverse the $34 charge, and thus far they've always done so.

Not an endorsement of Chase; it's obvious they're so, so excited to make those extra bucks. Just that doing this tango with them is getting annoying.

They don't need 'em. I drive them for a living, and I know. A fully loaded Transit 350 with the 3.5 Twin Turbo Eco Boost engine produces just under 400 h.p., and about 475 ft/lbs of torque.

Fully loaded (all 14 seats), and pulling a full-to the roof 12' cargo trailer, I can merge onto any freeway and accelerate into any suitable gap in traffic, without effort. 22mpg empty, driving solo, 16mpg average with all passenger loads across 136k miles. And other than maintenance, not one mechanical glitch, so far.

Covid put our competitor out of business, but so did those Sprinter vans. They operated 16 of them. I'm friends with the shop that maintained them. He told me they were massive Shop Queens, always needing expensive, oft-backordered parts. Operating costs were brutal, and ate massively into profits.

One will do as one wishes, but being in an industry that uses these types of vans constantly, I'll take the Transit and it's superior record, every time.

That's the thing about Angel of Death Cuomo and the other murderous governors. If you look at their state Covid deaths there's a big spike at the start and then a bit of a flatline before the increase starts again. The states that didn't take their "Kill grandma" approach have more of a steady slope in their Covid deaths. Its entirely possible that all those people were a couple months from passing anyways, or they would have caught a different cold or the flu and died from that instead. That being said, if someone is terminal and has 6 weeks to live, you don't get to shoot them in the face today. And that is what they did.
