I was thinking about a couple of films as I was driving the other day, and it occurred to me how many big budget (now CGI) films get made, spin through the cycle, and are barely thought of again.

Re: OT - 100 Years Ago

Also 100 years ago, and seemingly forgotten, is the flu pandemic of 1918.

Twice as many Americans died from the flu as died in World War II, all theaters. More than twice as many as died from combat in World War I.

It started [more]

Re: Lawn Tractor Issues

So I suddenly began having the same symptoms, except I hadn’t let the fuel run out.

Anyway, the tractor would fire up fine, run about 45 seconds, choke out and die. Over and over. The sequence was Run Fine (20 seconds), cycle from run fine [more]

Re: What Have the Romans Done for Us?

Doesn't this just mean that the Romans knew good locations for cities?

Re: Washington Full of Paul Manaforts

This is truly a bipartisan failure.

Yeah, if you call a 90/10 split “bipartisan.”

Re: See how you do on this Spelling test

People will tend to take a lot of these tests on this website (and provide them lots of clicks) if the test takers think they are geniuses. Therefore, the website tells you you are a genius.

Nuclear plants operate 24 hours a day.

So do coal plants. SP likes to remind everyone that wind is “unreliable” and waterfell tells us the sun doesn’t shine all the time.

More seriously, it was an interesting article but does seem to downplay the uncertainties under the broad strokes

Re: Keeping pitch off concrete

I’d get thin cushions at Tuesday morning or Target or whatever and put them “sap side up” most of the time. When somebody wants to sit down, turn them over. Nice fresh surface for the butt.

Re: seasoned firewood in shed

Question: if the wood is out of the elements do we need to purchase firewood racks to keep it off the floor, or are racks only necessary if the firewood is resting on bare earth?

And that messaging had zero effect on the outcome of the election.

I seriously doubt that’s true. Hundreds of millions of messages, all targeted at the right people saying the ‘right” things, and you think it had no effect at all? [more]

Re: Lawn Tractor Issues

At the bottom of any gas tank is crud. Little bits of leaves that got in, dirt, dust, whatever. When you run out of fuel it gets sucked into the filter and/or chamber with the last of the fuel and fouls you in every way imaginable.

There is almost no such thing as a 120v clothes dryer. I say “almost” because I had one once. It was the size of a toaster oven and took about 2 hours to dry a single pair of jeans. Not kidding.

Re: Umbrella Insurance Policy

Yes and yes

The amount is whatever you’re comfortable with. There’s no point in “up to your net worth” because if you’re worth $5m and the lawsuit is for $10m you’re wiped out anyway.
