  1. The Carling brewery was the next town over (Natick MA) when I was in High School. With a wink we got a sampling tour when asked if we were 21 (drinking age then) we were 18.
  2. Nexttime a blockade occurs have a spray foam truck show up. Zip tie their hands to gether and foam them like a mummy. They get their wish and are thoroughly insulated !!! Now they can be easliy stacked on a flatbed and hauled away. 😜
  3. ego begats rooster one upon a time
  4. Anybody got Rolaids for this poor alligator? (don't do this)
  5. The way it should be is do your own thing SO LONG as it doesn't impinge on others. Seems they got it backwards these days and some individuals only care about getting their way at the expense of all others. Seems to be a lot more trolls than in the past.
  6. Chrome, because we have 3 chromebooks i nthe house. Got tired of the antivirus dancing with Windoz quite some time back. One less hassle these days.
  7. I wonder how long the batteries last? Welding robots supplied by mains make infinite sense, but while this is tremedously impressive, is it pracrical (what customers other than SWAT teams) at this time?
  8. Curious: How severe is the hit for AC and heat? I know electric heat isn't very efficient for houses and Imagine it would't be very good for those living in cold winter climates. Hybrid would be aa more likely choice.
  9. I still have my original 1984 Kenmore(Sears) clothes dryer. Two roller wheels and one belt in all that time. Had to replace the mating top load washer only because my stepdaughters over stuffed it and it would get out of balance with that load.(abuse) It went on to serve my mother in law as we switched to a higher capacity front load. I can sril get parts for the dryer even though Sears Roebuck brick and motar stores have long ceased to exist. Ever time I bought stuff from them (other appliances like refigerators and freezers) they would try to sell me an exteded warranty policy and my standard answer was "if I didn't think it was ac good product to begin with I wouldn't buy it in the first place" Good service manuals and easy to get parts was key. Bought a used Craftsman lawn tractor many years ago on the cheap thats' still going strong. But yes, planned obsolescence is my experience with most other products these days.
  10. Yes, we are affecting the climate, but ... Consider the ice sheet was over 1 mile thick where I write this from.. There were no humans around to melt it. I thinlk one cannot discount bigger effects like volcanoes and asteroids.
  11. Doesn't every new Lotus come with 5 complementary car washes? 😜
  12. So that's why the trillons of dollrs in the US are slow to come forth for infrastructure. Who needs highways? πŸ˜‰
  13. My bad, I think it was Spanish (?)
  14. The italian language version worked. Thanks.
  15. If we only could tap into the electricity of giant moths our energy needs could be met !!! 😜
  16. I absolutely do (my wife and granson come along.) It's an inexpensive family getway to scenic parks. We're in the midlle ground with our '75 VW Westtfalia we've had since '12. High and dry and matresses inside, but far from the luxo RVs you see .No on the ground tent stuff for us, but no indoor bathroom (short walk to campground bathrooms/showers though). We can arrive in a total dounpour with nothing that needs to be set up.immediately (we have an ez-up canopy for the picnic table) When we get home the Westy goes in the garage. Paid $10K when we got it and worth almost twice that these days. We often camp with other Westy owners (club)we know at varying locations.
  17. Matches my (US) drivers arm πŸ˜‰
  18. So you're into the "wallpaper look" , eh? I know "different strokes for different folks", but that many tatoos on a woman turns me off.
  19. Be sure to pack one of these !! πŸ˜‰
  20. I alwayss wondered about clutch design. My Esprit S2 was very heavy compared to my Dodge v8 pickup truck (wihch I could depress with my toe). Both hydraulic , but why was the Esprit so heavy? I know the truck was no problem in stop/go traffic, but not the Esprit.
  21. Wife and I are on our second Werewolf. 😜
  22. who pulled that fly's wings off? πŸ˜†
