Unfortunately, I also happened to read the spoiler which stated what the difference between the two endings was. :-(

Just like adding more government to the telephone system,

Re: One hit wonders

KenAtPcs,

I thought I'd heard of (if not read) all of Heinlein's major novels, but apparently not. Sounds interesting to me; I've ordered a copy [of "Podkayne of Mars"].

Be aware there's two versions. The original [more]

PEX, have they begun using it? New fittings, tools required...

CCinOC,

But taking the more general point, we all "know" that in general stealing is wrong. — Radish

Why?


Because traditionally it's wrong, in general. But even stealing isn't universally considered wrong. [more]

Unless one of a handful of other religions that claim to be the only way to God, turn out to be correct.

Re: Plumbing repair

ptheland,

Is that true for irrigation lines as well?

I assume so, since they're connected to the city water supply.

I'm wondering if those should be painted. Probably wouldn't hurt.

I'd paint them. [more]

Re: Plumbing repair

1poorguy,

First thing I notice in the picture is PVC above ground. That is generally a very bad idea. PVC doesn't like being above ground (especially in direct sun, but even indirect isn't good). In AZ I believe it is code that all [more]

Re: Alert the Atheists Part II

CCinOC,

Phil, you don't want to be a Christian and you're never going to be a Christian, so why are you arguing the meaning of words or whether they are in English?

Re: Discounted LED bulbs

whyohwhyoh,

Best deals I've seen are at IKEA. Full range of LED bulb types, at very low prices ~$5 plus minus depending on bulb type.

When I've looked at IKEA, they've only had LEDs in the 2700K-or-so color range (aka [more]

Re: Discounted LED bulbs

tpault,

Incandescent bulbs can light up anywhere from very dim all the way to full bright. The LED however needed a "kick start" of voltage before it would ignite. It worked much better if I turned it all the way on full bright, [more]

Basically, God is perfection. After all, He created the universe and everything in it--including us. Being perfect, He can't abide sin; it's impossible. What to do?

Re: Alert the Atheists!

CCinOC,

A gross misunderstanding of (at least) Christianity. It isn't the poor choices one makes--we all make poor choices; every one of us--but that we cannot meet the standards of a Holy God. Good news! He has a plan to make everything [more]
