| O-T Lounge|| Weather forecasts and statistics - KG6 on 4/28/16 at 9:30 am|
I get that the weather man isn't going always be right. I'm not arguing that. What annoys me is when they put 0% chance of rain or 100% chance of rain. That means there is absolutely no chance, or that it absolutely will rain without any room for doubt. Which is fine if they are right, but often ...View Topic - Replies (7)
| Money Talk|| At what point is it worth dropping collision insurance? - KG6 on 4/21/16 at 9:52 am|
So I have one of the affected VW cars. The thread about how they may be buying back and offering money got me thinking about what I would do if I needed to buy another car. I commute a good bit for work, so I need a smaller car. I'm casually starting to look in case this happens. I have two optio...

| Money Talk|| What do you include when determining your income? - KG6 on 2/25/16 at 9:17 am|
When you think of the question "how much do I make?", do you just think of your base salary, or are all the other benefits included. I recently stumbled upon something through work that broke down everything that is paid to me or for me by my company (401k match, insurance premiums, bonuses, etc.)....

| O-T Lounge|| Anyone train using heart rate zones - KG6 on 1/11/16 at 1:58 pm|
Been using a heart rate monitor for the last month or so and am showing that although I have a pretty decent resting heart rate (~45 BPM), my active rate gets up there even on medium efforts. An easy run/bike ride is going to put me in "Zone 4". A run that I'm actually looking to improve is certai...View Topic - Replies (9)

Leaving the office, there is an intersection where a two lane one way road must take a right onto two lanes of another one way road. So both the left and right lane can and must turn right. I get in the left lane since I need to be in the left lane after the turn. Most times, I'll have a car ...View Topic - Replies (6)

Looking to get a watch to better track my running. I almost pulled the trigger on a Garmin Forerunner 15 with heart rate monitor (~$150), but started seeing all the other options and just want to get the best bang for the buck. Don't need a $400 watch. But would like to track hear rate, distance,...View Topic - Replies (9)

Looking to maybe start to do as a hobby and to stay in shape. How much of your life does it take up (I don't mind working out, but I also like the freedom to skip a day here or there)? I used to run a bit and have been cycling lately. The swim training is going to kill me, but as with anything, I...View Topic - Replies (12)

Not that there's anything wrong with it, it just stood out to me more today. It's apparently fashionable, but do th...View Topic - Replies (32)

Do you think smoking would be seen as trashy if people weren't addicted to it. Like in the sense of people who will have a few cigarettes socially when they drink. Or someone who might smoke a handful of cigarettes during a given week, but wasn't addicted to the point that they were defined as a "...View Topic - Replies (3)

Anyone ever made their own cheap smoker? I've seen it done on a cooking show using a hot plate, some aluminum foil, a cooling rack, and a cardboard box. I'm saving up for a Kamado grill and don't really want to buy a crappy pit in the mean time. I feel like smoking something over the weekend. Se...
