  1. Biden wants to "equalize" 401(k) tax breaks. That's newspeak. In plain english he wants to eliminate it because tax breakes make democrats angry. Whatever. I don't have one so "equalize" away. More and more I am only concerned about "how does this affect me". The upshot of never havimg had children I guess. Very little about whatever outcome November brings will significantly affect me. Although I do laugh at the folks who think Biden's probable victory will unite us back together. It won't. Were we united before the 2016 election? Hardly. Besides, much like the Democrats in '09, and the
  2. I aged 5 years in the 9th inning of the ALCS. I aged another 5 last night. The Rays don't win any way but close!
  3. Happy birthday to fallout new Vegas. 10 years old and still great.
  4. https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/asteroid-destroy-earth-election-day-180700146.html giant meteor inbound the day before election! Here comes the real winner of the popular vote!
  5. Something else the politicians fail to grasp. The majority of voters are not voting for anything. They are voting against the alternative. They don’t understand they were simply the least bad option
  6. That is precisely what’s going to happen. My prediction is the very first thing they will do when Congress and the new president are seated in January will be to vote themselves a pay raise. And that’s just going to set the tone. Then in 2022 they will lose one or both houses of Congress. The pattern has been clear for the past 30 years. Oh no the Republicans have screwed up the country let’s vote for the Democrats. Oh no the Democrats have screwed up the country let’s vote for the Republicans. remind me again what is the definition of insanity?
  7. Is it just me or is trump becoming even more unwrapped as we get closer to the end of this thing?
  8. The thing about it that piques my curiosity Is that these particles have mass. Not a lot obviously but cumulatively over time will they cause a vehicle traveling in interstellar space like voyager to decelerate? Theoretically if you could accelerate to 50% of lightspeed and head towards Proxima Centauri would you still be going 50% of light speed when the time came to begin deceleration?
  9. As you were all aware voyager one and voyager two are both beyond the Heliopause and out of our solar system. They are both reporting something very interesting now. The farther they get from the effectS of the sun the greater the density of charged particles per cubic centimeter of space has been: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.sciencealert.com/for-some-reason-the-density-of-space-is-higher-just-outside-the-solar-system/amp. that seems counterintuitive to me. That there would be a greater amount of charged particles outside of the flu each of the sun then inside of it
  10. Fascist is a word that has completely lost its definition.
  11. Pellet smokers work well enough. My only grief with them is you go through a lot of the wood pellets. They are small so you don’t get much out of them. Master Built electric smoker’s sound like they might be what you’re looking for. I have a sheet iron grill with the smoke box attached to it. Like you said it requires supervision when in use. But for me that’s half the enjoyment.
  12. Wait it it your real birthday or your obs board birthday? Aw hell.... Happy Birthday! (covers it either way! )
  13. Back to the Halloween carnival this afternoon. There are four of us there representing the VFW. Our role is general handyman, refrigeration mechanic, lifter of heavy things, and of course object lessons to children to study harder in school
  14. Political self segregation. After all, it’s hard to have a Civil War without clear lines of who lives where
  15. Fan of Sci-Fi? Psychologists Have You in Their Sights LOL I'd say that sounds more like gamers! Yeah you nerds. Why don't you self medicate with alcohol and drugs like everyone else? LOL!
  16. It's been near three weeks since I last left the house. Other than to get the mail but that really doesn't count. Today I'm not only goung out I'm going to interact with... (shuuder) people! Some of the local organizations are having a "halloween carinival" for kids in town. Going to help out today. I considered bringing Sunny but probably better not to.
  17. I hope you stay active here. You're a good dude and your posts are a constribution to this board. I'd hate to see you fade away.
  18. Watching nature shows on TV can cure boredom, sadness I agree 100%. I have Curiosity Stream and also on NetFlix there are many.
  19. I used to think politics was so important. That our very lives and fortunes hinged on the outcomes of elections. In the 80's you'd hear s--t like that from time to time. Nowdays it's all you hear. But it's really not true. All victories and defeats are fleeting. When Obama won with a super majority in Congress I thought we were well and truly f----d. We got some bad law rammed down our throats but such political alignments are always temporary. In 2010 the pendulum swung back the other way. Im not voting for either Trump or Biden. I have no use for either of them. If I had to pick one it
  20. Sunny is a sweet dog. But she is dumber than a box of crayons. She has lived here for seven years now. And after all that time she still does not know that the front door and back door lead to the same house. If she goes out the back door and ends up in the front yard she will walk all the way around the house to come back in through the back door. If I stand in the front door with it open and call her she will run all the way around to the back door to come in.
  21. Cory Booker is a piece of s—t
  22. They decided two minutes of hate was not enough
