  • You people will argue about anything no matter how right or wrong you are, won't ya?

  • Time's fleeting but I think what is worse is that lately there's been a glut of songs about how fast time flies and that life is short and stuff. It's kinda aggravating when you're in the garage working on something and this sappy song comes on a…
  • The Offspring also used it in the opening for their song "Pretty Fly". That's probably gotten more airplay in the past 10-15 years that anything Def Leppard did so the youngin's are more likely to recognize it from that.
  • Oh, also, VC's are pretty tight tolerances for a coil of wire around a former to move around in so violently. Copper is also pretty thermally active (meaning it expands and contracts pretty far) and at extreme temps the voice coil could restrict eno…
  • I think the biggest issue isn't so much humidity but air movement. Humidity certainly isn't good if it's excessively high. But it's necessary in homes to keep stuff like static electricity down and prevent damage to stuff like wood fixtures and/o…
  • OK, sorry, been thinking about this and this may not be as easy as you think it is. So I get the math you are doing but that's just drivers and does not take into account the crossovers networks or even the amount of wire in the circuits or even …
  • More like beauty is in the eye of the beer holder!
  • I could not afford the stuff I drink now in high school. Then again, when I go to a party and bring my own sixer of Victory's Dirt Wolf and kill it without having to share because nobody will touch the stuff...not exactly the Natty Ice and Old Mi…
  • Also, wine is served in 4 to 6 ounce sizes. Beer is 12-16 ounces. So even at 2-3% a 12 ounce beer packs more punch then your 4-6 ounce of wine. Also, last time I was in Kentucky, boss took us out drinking and bought a bottle of 23 year old Pappy …
  • Son, you come down here and I'll introduce you to the stuff we keep for ourselves. We send the junk to Canuckistania 'cause we ain't care about what you think. Right now, my beer fridge has about 15 different bottles in it, all 750ml and they …
  • OK, look, y'all rag on Ken S all the time but he's got a **** job babysitting you yahoos. He's stuck enforcing Polk Audio policy despite his own feelings about it. He's actually a really cool and mellow guy and goes to bat for you jerks more often t…

  • Wine is for girls.
  • ****, son. A pint of an 8% is nothing. Hell, I'm on my second pint of an 8.5% DIPA from a local brewery in Millivile, NJ. Goes down easy for being so strong and dank. Barely feeling it.
  • Depends, some beers go down easier than others.
  • It said my post was too long...that's so unlike me! daily habits - drink more water. You don't have to necessarily cut out soda or beer or wine, just cut back on it and replace it with water - get more sleep. If you sleep for 8 hours a day, t…
  • I usually stay out of threads like these because I usually get shouted down over my personal experience. But I have to say that the thing that has worked best for me is activity and lots of it. There have been times where I was way out of shape a…

  • Yes, the melted plastic is typically smooth and shiny. Like super glue gets. It's the polyester that would be shiny as the base vacuum formed polymer would not have the components in the mix that would lend to a glossy finish, typically. Polyester i…

  • If other glues aren't sticking it's likely because there's still old glue there that needs to be scraped off.
  • I honestly had zero problems with it. I never put the fine china in it but I wouldn't put fine china in any dishwasher, that's just a dumb idea.
  • At least your dishwasher had a manual. Previous owner of my house only kept half the manuals. Threw the rest out. Had to go download the manual from some other site. Funny thing is, I have manuals stapled to rafters in the garage for garage do…
  • Yeah, not saying they are bad at all. But if you're like me with 3.25 acres of land (well, only about an acre and a half that isn't covered by lake and trees) an electric mower is not going to cut it. Literally. That's why I have this.
  • Well, an acre is ~43.5K square feet so at ~6400 sq ft, you're mowing about .15-.20 acres of land. An average yard for most people in suburbia and not in a McMansion is roughly 12,000-15,000 square feet which is .25-.33 acres. (a quarter to a thir…
  • In my experience, electric lawn mowers are ok for moderate lawns, good for small lawns. Anything over about half an acre will be brutal. 3/4ths of an acre or more and it'd be impossible with an electric mower because corded or battery powered, th…
