  1. I need a break and will be gone for a while. Mentioned this a couple times in the past, I just suck up too many bad news, mainly political issues, and I simply can't deal with it in a controlled manner. Every time I read a thread on some bullshit the Dems are starting again, I read up on everything I can find online, become extremely irritated, and since I can't change any of that, I feel cornered, write hateful posts myself, and the day is ruined. And it all starts over on the next day. Obviously I can't tell others what to write, even though I kinda tried, so I have to remove myself from the sources of those constant bad news. I'm also cutting the line to my trading chat, which is also full with political issues, as well as the internet altogether. Sick and tired of being connected to so much negativity. I'll be spending much more time in my yard, working on the camper conversion, going to the beaches, watching 80s movies, doing trips within the state, and other projects. Positive projects where I can create something with my hands, instead of filling my mind with more bullshit. I'll be back one day, but for now I need a lasting break. Just wanted to let you guys know and not just disappear. PS: Always be the guard of your mind.

  3. First female aircraft carrier Commanding Officer has never taken off by catapult or landed by arresting gear. But she IS female, so she's good to go! If this isn't proof of the priority given to PC over readiness and capability, I don't know what is. https://news.usni.org/2020/12/23/first-female-nuclear-carrier-co-will-command-uss-abraham-lincoln Another FSC/IWP (tm) (Feminist Sacred Cow/Incompetent Warrior Princess, pronounced "Fiskwipp") is promoted solely for PC reasons, over more experienced and deserving men. Frankly, we deserve what's coming to us, for allowing this BS for so long. Our military is deeply infected with a fatal disease: Political Correctness. If we don't rip it out root and branch, the Chinese and/or Russians will eventually slaughter and enslave us.. Time grows short.

  4. I just got off the phone with my friend and colleague. She is spouting off the msm line. Called ivermectin horse dewormer. I told he I just had horse food this morning for breakfast, oats. Then she told me her friend had ketamine treatment for ptsd/depression, and I said, “Oh, you mean horse tranquilizer?”. I may have to write her off.

  5. I just got a call and the gal on the line asks "Hello. Am I speaking with Gwalchmai Munn?" I said "Who inna hell wants to know?" Turns out she was a CS rep from a company I deal with, and that I like, but great googley, don't the teach these kids how to make a call? The proper way is "Hello, this is Mona Lisa Vito from Vito's Garage calling for Mr. Munn. Is he available?" And the last part can be done coyly for best effect.

  8. My police department has been trying to use positive reinforcement to get officers to get vaccinated. They offer 2 paid vacation days to any officers that can turn in a valid vaccine card. Even so, barely half of our officers are vaccinated now. I guess I'm a cheap date, because I took the bribe from my department, and I turned in a vaccine card with only ONE dose of Moderna out of the usual two doses. I never went back for any more doses, and sure enough, I got my two paid vacation days. The one dose hasn't given me any side affects, other than the heart attack, blood clots, and seizure I had within a few months of the vaccine. But, good luck proving any connection between the two. Now the federal government wants to mandate the vaccine? Oh HELL no...my entire family is standing firm that they won't touch the vaccine.

  16. Not to be a slouch, the big H has been into quite a few things as well (drillings, no less!): 1689 – Firearms The drillingwork at the waterfalls in Husqvarna, southern Sweden, was the first large plant. The state-owned rifle factory had some 1,000 employees at the beginning of the 18th century. The company was spun off from Husqvarna Vapenfabriks Aktiebolag in 1959. Shotguns were produced for 300 years, the last in 1989. 1872 – Sewing machines When demand declined, it turned out that the machinery for production of rifles was well-suited for producing sewing machines. 1874 – Kitchen equipment in cast iron Husqvarna started a foundry to produce details for sewing machines, a large part being the base frames. Soon the assortment was broadened to include such products as kitchen equipment in cast iron and later on stoves and ovens. 1896 – Bicycles Bicycle production began in the Huskvarna factory. Several patents were registered. The last bicycle was produced in 1962. 1903 – Motorcycles The first motorcycle, which could reach the impressive speed of 4–5 km/hour, was produced in 1903. Starting in the 1930s, Husqvarna's lightweight engines helped make some successful track racing and motocross bikes. Husqvarna's first titles in Motocross World Championship came in 1959 and 1960. The operation was divested in 1987 and is since 2013 part of the KTM family. 1919 – Lawn mowers When Husqvarna acquired Norrahammars Bruk in 1918, the product range expanded to heating boilers and lawn mowers. The first test with a lawn mower powered by an engine was done in 1947. 1959 – Chainsaws As demand for bicycles, mopeds and motorcycles declined, forestry became increasingly important. The expertise in engines was utilized in new areas and the first chainsaw was produced in 1959. 1968 – Power cutters A saw rebuilt to a power cutter in 1968 was the starting point of what today is the business area Husqvarna Construction. 1978 – Electrolux acquired Husqvarna. 1986 – The motorcycle division was sold to Cagiva. 1995 – Robotic lawn mowers The world's first solar powered robotic lawn mower was launched. Sales of robotic mowers did not flourish until 15 years later. 1997 - divestment of sewing machines The Husqvarna-branded sewing machines were sold to the VSM Group and later became part of SVP Worldwide. 1999 – Husqvarna acquired Yazoo/Kees Husqvarna acquired Nebraska-based lawn mower manufacturer Yazoo/Kees.[6] 2006 – On its own feet The company was spun off by Electrolux. 2007 – Acquisitions of strong brands The acquisition of Gardena in 2007 made the Husqvarna Group the European leader in consumer watering products. Acquiring Zenoah brought a strong brand and geographical expansion in Japan. 2008 – Expanded presence in China The acquisition of Jenn Feng and the construction of a new plant for chainsaws and other handheld products gave expanded presence in Asia. 2009 – Demolition robot Husqvarna launched its first remote-controlled demolition robot. 2013 – Chainsaw chains The decision was made to invest in a new production facility for chainsaw chains in Huskvarna. Ongoing – Husqvarna developed and sold snowblowers, which were unable to reach "automated robot" status in comparison to the robotic lawnmower line. 2017 – Floor grinding and polishing Acquired HTC Sweden AB, the leading manufacturer of floor grinding machines and related diamond tooling, along with its France, Germany, UK and USA subsidiaries. 2018 – E-Bikes (Licensing) Electro-Bicycles offered by Pexco GmbH, Schweinfurt, Germany, founded by the Puello family (former executive of Haibike) and Stefan Pierer, CEO of KTM Industries AG (KTM motorcycles). Include motors by Shimano. 2019 – Celebrations Husqvarna group are celebrating 330 years of innovation, as well as 60 years as a chainsaw manufacture.[7] 2020 – Floor grinding and polishing Acquired Blastrac, manufacturer of floor grinding machines and related diamond tooling, along with its European subsidiaries.

  17. As in Messerschmitt ME(BF)-109 NAZI fighters. Messerschmitt made all sorts of things after the war, to keep their doors open. They made a 3-wheel tandem seat car too, that was basically a stretched fighter cockpit. Post-war Germans needed jobs and they needed cars.

  21. I bought two of these for my boys. Husqvarna model 155 .22LR. Great little guns. The geometry is almost identical to the 6.5 Swedish Mauser so they have the same basic feel as far as muscle memory goes for practice
