  1. Past hour
  2. Nice work! Evap problems can be as simple as the gas cap. The canisters generally last pretty well but the associated hosiery does not. Never heard of Ant, tickty boo reminded me of ziptiesandbiasplies on youtube. He has a bit of a potty mouth though.

    Barbara Eden would be more fun to look at.
  4. I thought getting older would take longer. A wise man once said nothing. Respect your elders; they graduated school without the internet. Why do I have to press "1" for English? Did America move? We have enough gun control; what we need is idiot control. Behind every angry woman stands a man who has absolutely no idea what he did wrong. Instead of "single" as a marital status I prefer "independently owned and operated". Patience: What you have when there are too many witnesses. Let's stop sending money to other countries and let them hate us for free. Vegetarian: Ancient tribal name for the village idiot who can't hunt, fish or light fires. I look at people ad sometimes think... "Really? That's the sperm that won?" Some days, my decision-making skills closely resemble those of a squirrel when crossing the road. Some things are just better left unsaid. I usually realize it right after I say them. Camping: Where you spend a small fortune to live like a homeless person.

  6. Taken somewhere along the Mississippi River.
  7. Whiskers was later booted from the band for being "out of sync" with the rest.....
  8. Today
  9. That gives me a whole other appreciation for the Garand. I wonder if the M-14 would have a similar ouch? Interestingly enough, I have peaked around on the SOCOM II variant. Either the owner's loved them, or they just dried up. The regular SOCOM I have seen.
  10. One thing the State finally got right was having a Victim's Advocate, that with prior permission I could communicate with, to let them know the status of the illegal offender. I suspect given the fact that the current Governor made the whole State a sanctuary state, that position has been eliminated. However, in Texas, if you want to donate your jury duty money, it goes to the victims of crime fund. I like that one. It is not like they ever put me on jury duty, they just annoy me for part of a day. They want you to write your occupation or former occupation and I am always eliminated.

    I have just one female kitten that I swear is half monkey in the places she gets herself.
  12. No offense, but the military is no stranger to covering up their own fvckups. In some ways they've perfected it. But this would be hard to make "go away." The article seemed to indicate that even Iraqi officials don't necessarily believe all of the different accusations against Gallagher. Sitting in front of my computer I can offer an opinion. But put me in the jury room and tell me there has to be no reasonable doubt, that changes things. Depends on what else they have IMO. But right now it seems that the prosecution is getting their asses handed to them by Gallagher's legal team.
  13. I knew some stupid kids that put some firecrackers in a beehive one cold February morning, thinking the bees wouldn't come out of the hive due to the temperature. Boy, were they wrong. One took 18 to the left side of his face. 🤬
  14. Nipple bitten off by a beaver. Didn't happen to me, but it's one of those stories that just hurts to even hear.
  15. My Silverado has had a problem for a couple of years. Very rough idle. So it mainly just sat there. I drove it occasionally but not much. Well - the wife's car is in the shop getting a barefoot gas pedal installed (actually getting the roof painted but I couldn't resist the Joe Dirt reference). So we are down to two cars. She drives about a mile to work and I drive about 40. So she said she would drive the truck. This immediately made fixing this thing a priority. So I start with the diagnostic codes (and if you don't at least have a cheap diagnostic scanner that connects to your phone, you need one.) Showed random misfire. I get to digging around and all 8 plugs are black. Running rich. Noxious smell at the tailpipe confirmed this. So this is how it went: 1) Found some dumbass (who is currently typing a post about mending something on The Bore Site) had gapped the plugs at .060, rather than .040. Fixed that and it made things a little better. 2) Recheck shows "Misfire, cylinder 4". Once I figured out which cylinder is #4, I checked that wire with the timing light and it ain't firing. Moved parts around and figured out it was the plug. Bought a new plug - and 7 more just like it. Iridium this time. Put 6 in before the deluge of rain. Improved things a bit. 3) Dinking around on the interwebz revealed a new candidate- fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail. Apparently this thing works on vacuum and if the diaphragm fails it will suck gas into the intake. Bypasses all of the sensors. Went home and checked by pulling off the vacuum line. If there's any sign of gas, that's a bad sign. Pulled the line and a column of gas shot up about an inch. I'd say that qualifies. 4) Put the last two plugs in and went and got a new regulator. Couldn't get a Delco so got what Auto Zone had (I needed the truck running). $66 for a part about the size of a small aspirin bottle. Fired it up. After it finally started (residual fuel in the vacuum system I believe) it started up and ran "tickity boo" (Ant Anstead expression - I think it means it worked the way it was supposed to). Changed the oil (mainly as maintenance but thinking back it probably dumped some fuel in there) and drove the truck around and it seems to be back to it's old self. Even washed it. Maybe the wife will quit griping about driving it now. I kinda doubt it though. She wants her Pilot back. Though she did spin the tires a bit Monday evening leaving my son's daycare (it was okay a throttle, but ran like crap at idle). The Pilot won't do that. May swap with her tomorrow. Tires on that thing are old and I am a little concerned about them at freeway speeds (70+). Next is to get the other trouble code - evaporative system P0449. Apparently there is a canister system at the back of the truck that causes issues after a while (evap canister for the fuel tank). I need to look into how to fix it though - everything I've seen shows a different system. Would love to get that light out. But it really is a great feeling when you get something working properly again.
  16. I know a guy that collided with a red-tailed hawk while tracking away from an 8-way around deployment time. From the ground, there was a definite thump, which didn't sound right. Looking up, there was a cloud of feathers. He was lucky to not have been knocked out. He was covered in feathers and hawk goo, had some good lacerations, and was bruised up pretty well.
  17. A kidney stone...metaphorically, of course.
