I saw something a couple weeks back but I can't find it (sorry..I suck at searches sometimes).
I'm trying to figure out the maximum filtration (MERV) I can use on a new house A/C unit.
Anyone have a good site with good information on how to calculate that data? I want to use the maximum filte...

I was reading another thread and thought of something. Why do some work places have restrictions on the length of a knife blade? For example mine at work here is 3". I've seen 4" listed as well. What makes 3" less of an issue than 4"?
I'm just wondering where they get their data to support what t...

I've got to work day shift on New Year's Day...so with a noon kickoff..I'm screwed. I have a slingbox configured to allow me to watch it at work, but I wanna have a back up plan.

First off a disclaimer. Yes, I played football in HS...but I was a defensive tackle and OG. Can someone explain why they call a wheel route that route? I can't see the similarity.

Wife and I went to go get my SA 1911 Range Officer this weekend...and another reason was for her to pick out a CC weapon.
