Re: Bright kid

Yeah, I heard that report also. Many who are employed lost 10 years of work (economy is only now turning around there). They're calling it the "lost generation", not only because of the lack of work but because many are heading to other [more]

Re: Bright kid

Very bright kid. I hope we fix our society so that we have jobs for him worthy of his apparent intellect.

Re: Everyone Gets a Gun

Given the prevalence of guns today I do think it would be a good idea to teach kids gun safety. Not shooting skills (that's just stupid to require). Instead the basics of "always assume a gun is loaded", "never point it at a living [more]

Re: Painting stucco?

Well, that's the thing. If your stucco is colored all the way down, you can't change the color. If "blue" was in style when you got it, but fashion has moved to 'earth tones', sorry, you got blue.

Only if it's elastomeric [more]

Apparently he did his best to force his employees to vote against Obama, but it didn't work. And now his business is stronger than ever. Go figure.

Re: F-35 - What a waste

Was unaware of the Japanese order. Given the cost of one of those things that's an expensive order.

Yes, pilotless fighters are a long way off. The primary advantage if we ever do that is that current fighters can outperform the pilots [more]

Re: Sprinkler system question

It depends on you, of course. But sprinkler systems are really just tinker-toys. Not complicated at all. The hardest part is digging.

Re: ionic breeze

We have an electronic air filter on our A/C unit. (In fact, I probably need to clean it...it's been a couple of months.) 1poorlady just wanted a little "extra". I've long been skeptical, but figured it couldn't hurt. Apparently that wasn't [more]

It's welfare for the middle class...

Well, that won't last much longer. The oligarchs have almost destroyed the middle class.

Re: Cell Phone for Europe trip?

FWIW, a smartphone is a GREAT idea for this. Get the TMobile international plan with free data roaming and you can have walking (or driving) navigation for FREE. WiFi calling also is free.

TMobile also offers the best plan I'm aware of. Only [more]

Drones. The future is drones. Though we should keep a modern fighter force ready (especially carrier-based), most future combat is going to be against small groups of lunatics. Very doubtful there is going to be a major land war in Europe ever [more]

Anyone have one of these things? We do. Haven't used it in a while because it's always hissing, even after cleaning the filter bars. I read somewhere that the wires inside can get dirty too, so today I (finally) decided to take the thing apart and [more]

Re: Free will revisited

Quibble: evolution doesn't "design" anything. It is mindless.

And it is responsible for the vast biodiversity we see today.

If there is no hell, then Christianity is false.

Interesting tale about your experience. Thanks.

Regarding this statement, some Christian sects will say that there is no hell. You simply die and are "destroyed". [more]
