Election 2014: Karma is a b!tch
Posted: 10/21/2014 9:27:47 PM
it never ceases to amaze me when i hear a liberal saying that the republicans refuse to compromise..............do you understand the meaning of this word?

an agreement or a settlement of a dispute that is reached by each side making concessions.


hmmmmmmmm


i seem to recall that at the time of the government shutdown every single thing sent to the senate by the congress was immediately tabled

matter of fact not one single bill or even memo sent by the republican controlled house to the senate has been read on the floor......harry ried has tabled EVERYTHING

How can I spice up my chili?
Posted: 10/14/2014 8:05:46 PM
best way i've found is to get a small can of habanero's in adobe sauce..............clean out the seeds...chop en fine and add the pepers and sauce.still not hot enough..add the seeds.....................also.....get a couple anahiem and pableno chillis.......fore roast the skns off.....chop fine and add.....not a lot of heat...bot it really "balances" the chilli

Off-Grid Living?
Posted: 10/11/2014 6:19:11 AM
a bit..............but not enough

most solar systems are battery systems.............the extra energy is stored in batteries.............however....unless you have a lot of solar panels....and a lot of batteries.......your not able to run everything 24/7 solar panels simply cant generate that much energy............ok.......yes...........if you have a massive amount of panels......but the average rooftop system...no way.........my cousin.who lives in the desert where sunshine is pretty much every day year round.......still needs a generator to assure he has enough power for everything


a combination of solar and wind power is a lot more reliable..........however.........getting the permits for a wind turbine can be quite a hassle...........the very same folks who rant about "green" energy also rant that windmills kill birds................also.......lots of times the neighbors complain about having to look at your windmill all the time


one thing to remember about wind and water turbines..........speed equals power..............spin a wind turbine at say............30 revolutions a min..............you get x amount of energy.............spin it at 300 ...........you get 1000 times as much......thats why steam turbines.........[nuulear, coal, gas]........are such great prouducers..................should you be able to install a water turbine.............unless you have something like the hoover dam........your not going to produce lots of extra energy..........though.........water turbines are better than wind or solar

Off-Grid Living?
Posted: 10/10/2014 5:55:30 PM
this discussion has gone from off grid living to survival living.............2 very different things

off grid living is reletively easy.........but it does take planning and careful fore thought

survival living on the other hand.....is pretty much hand to mouth.........fully 75% of your time will be spent trying to find and store enough food to get by........plus gathering firewood.........then theres all the other chores that need doing

at one time.........i might have been willing to try the survivalist life............not anymore.......while my hunting and fishing skills are as good as ever....physically...there aint no way

Does a man need to feel needed?
Posted: 10/1/2014 12:04:58 PM
do we want to feel needed?............interesting question..........i think you could ask if we want to feel wanted........i think a lot of guys see both questions as the same thing.................sure.....i like doing things around the house..........but if thats all a woman wants from me...........she better be paying cash...........


a guy wants to feel both wanted and needed........be it for conversation .......killing spiders or putting up the storm windows

Nude cellphone photos
Posted: 9/5/2014 7:32:13 PM
hmmmmmmmmmmmm..seems a bunh of folks think its ok to be hacked and have pics posted because."you shouldnt take nude pics"

hmmmmmmmmmm


what about you same folks..suppose your computer got hacked......or your id.....your banks computers?.......and all your stuff was stolen........still ok?.....why not?..you should know better that putting your info out there.



simple fact is.someone illegally looked for those pics and them posted them publicly......sorry....but thats a crime.........not much different than any other kind of theft

Posted: 9/1/2014 8:35:49 AM
one advantage of the behind the ear type..they are indeed more noticible......but.being so...people tend to be a bit louder and more precise talking to you

Any tiny home dwellers?
Posted: 7/16/2014 11:35:05 AM
the trouble with a home on wheels such as a small trailer is that the plumbing/electrical systems simply are not up to full time use............the self contained mobile home units are better...but you will always need a sewer disposal and fresh water source.......but again...unless you spend $60 k or better.[new price].......the systems are still designed ffor occasional use.....................also.....if you drive the trailer/cheaper mobile home......they tend to rattle themselves apart....so maintanance will be higher


i do know several folks who live in tiny houses..one guy has a house thats 16x20......he loves it....but hes a loner that prefers living "rough"........he has all amenities..............sewer..........water.......makes his own electricity has free natural gas heat and lights......[his land is leased to an oil company.......part of the agreement is free natural gas]

Do condoms encourage more promiscuous sex?
Posted: 7/11/2014 12:05:17 PM
i think that maybe way back in the 70's they might have.............mostly because they were a bit tough to get..they were kept behind the counter.and a lot of guys .espically teens.........were a tad embaressed to ask for them....for a girl?...........it was even worse...at least the guys could go to a bowling alley or truckstop restroom and find a vending machine...................remember.back then.sex was still "dirty" so to speak

now days............i dont think they have near as much inpact

Winchime ideas needed to make my own.
Posted: 7/11/2014 7:22:39 AM
go to a hardware store and buy electrical conduit.........its fairly inexpensive and its soft steel..easy to cut with a hacksaw...and easy to drill.......shoot......they might even have short pieces they would be happy to get rid of.............also.....an add on craigslist might get you a bunch for free

i would suggest a roll of stovepipe wire.....[wire clothes hangers would work too].......to make loops for the pipes to hang on..fishing line would proubly wear thru.............get around 30 lb test line...........

you can use copper pipe too........but thats gonna be expensive

serious question.............what exactly is sexual assult?
Posted: 6/18/2014 1:27:56 PM
well............i finally got more info......seems that the boy was totally innocent

what happened is this...the picture got taken and the students were told they could move....one of the "touched" girls friends........another girl.........patted her butt and said."we made it".......the girl indeed did yell out........and the teachers and princapals did the right thing and tried to find out what happened........

thanks to digital photography.....they looked at the pic and called all the guys who were close to her aside for questioning.......[but no girls]..........all the guys denied any contact........but the girls guidance councilor got involved and gave all of them the 3rd degree.............finally......the punished boy stated.........."i might have brushed against her.....but i never grabbed her ass"...........well....that single statement was enough for the girls guidance councilor to go apeshyte and demand as severe action as possible.......resulting in his expulsion and loss of diploma....[which has been given to him with lots of appoligies from the school]...........

heres the bad part............when the word got around....the girl that actually patted the other girls butt came forward to the counsilor.....and was promptly dismissed......nor did she pass the information on till a couple days ago

only good thing to come out of this mess is that that paticular girls counsilor is now looking for another job.......and is likely facing a civil lawsuit fro the boys parents

serious question.............what exactly is sexual assult?
Posted: 6/10/2014 12:23:26 PM
wow...........i never expected some of these replies.......sexually groped?....sexually manhandled?

i've learned a bit more about what happened today..........[talked to the mom of one of the students].........

the class was in their cap and gowns in the gym for the class pic....the girl yelled out."who grabbed my ass"................[btw.this girl has a bit of a history of being a drama queen/class clown].................the girls councilor got involved and decided to raise a big stink..............the girl changed her story several times.............from grabbed to pinched to touched.......the boy who got expelled was chosen because he was the boy standing next to her............not the two guys behind her............also.when he was asked....he said..."i might have....but i didnt do it on purpose".......to which the councilor said "yeah right"



no.........if it was him.....he sure as hell didnt have the right to touch her.....................but i still think the kid was done wrong

How do I approach her?
Posted: 6/9/2014 10:29:43 PM
lol.........way back in high school...........i dated a girl that me and everyone else thought was way out of my league.[not saying thats you]..................one day on the bus...i was totally zoned out....day dreaming.and without realizing it...looking directly at her...[never would have had the guts to do that any other way]

anyway.she said "would you please stop stareing at me"..........broke me out of my daydream.....totally embaressed me and scared the crap out of me all at the same time............after about 30 seconds i said".yeah..i'm sorry...........i guess a girl as pretty as you gets mighty sick of that"

lol........never saw anyone turn that red that fast........[btw ladies.....blushes are totally unfair]..........we ended up starting to talk......then date for a while..............nothing ever came of it...........but it is a very fond memory

serious question.............what exactly is sexual assult?
Posted: 6/9/2014 10:20:15 PM
ok..the reason i'm asking.....a local kid.......very good student.......college bound..[at least.that was the plan]...never in trouble in school or with the cops.........was just expelled on the day of graduation for pinching/touching a girls butt........[she first said pinch.then changed it to touched...........he was charged with sexual assult....and as it stands right now..didnt graduate nor will he get his diploma...............and it will be on his record


now look..........i know that any..........any unwanted sexual advances are wrong...........but is a high school boys touching of a girls bottom really on the same level as a rape?


i havnt heard much of the boys side...........though i didnt hear of him denying it.........but i also know that when you stand 300 or so high school students on the gym bleachers to take a picture theres liable to be some unintended touching going on......and most likely some that was intended
........but isnt this an example of taking things a bit too far?

The Mental Health system in America:Why is it failing?
Posted: 6/3/2014 12:29:22 PM
the only thing about mental illness is this.........theres really no set peramiters for a lot of them............depending on what psyciatrist you visit..............and wether or not you've had a bad day..........everybody could be diagnosed as mentally ill

this isnt just my opinion..........watched several programs .......[discovery.learning channel........?].........where this was the subject...........often times............people are deemed mentally ill just because they disagree with their dr
