re: GOAT Safety Video - Lake Peigneur Salt Mine Accident - eitek1
My grandfather was in the mine when it happened. He was a heavy equipment mechanic that was servicing some of their equipment at the time. It was just really bad timing with him being there. He said it was scary....

re: Recovering seats and replacing carpet in a car - eitek1
"Too pricey" Normally I would agree. I "zero houred" my wife's ride two years ago. She just broke 300k miles. It still looks like a new vehicle. I figured that was about 4 car payments and I did it 120k miles ago. I do all my own work and spend about 200 dollars about every 6 months changing some...

re: Recovering seats and replacing carpet in a car - eitek1
Order factory carpet. DON'T ORDER ANYTHING ELSE... Takes about 4 hours to replace in your driveway. You'll have to pull out all the trim but as you do hand it to someone to clean. When you go back in with the trim after the carpet the interior is spotless. Next get katzkin leather seats instal...

re: OT Dads: do you teach your sons how to fight? - eitek1
My son takes Krav Maga and wrestling in the evenings. He really loves it and thinks it's a lot of fun. I told my wife, "I want my son to walk away from a fight but not because he is scared". Once you learn how to protect yourself it helps your confidence I think....

re: Was WWI more brutal than WWII? - eitek1
Each war was different. WW1 battlefields were relatively static in nature. If you were 50 miles away from an active WW1 battlefield, you might not know you were at war. The battles themselves were horrific. Within 5 weeks of The Archduke being shot there were a million casualties in the war. With so...

re: How The Sugar Industry Shifted The Blame To Fat - eitek1
Most people don't realize there is almost a monopoly on sugar and sweeteners globally too. An English company called Tate and Lyle own almost every sweetener producer globally. They own all the producers in Louisiana. I worked at one of their facilities years ago in a different state and realize...

re: Do Military services still use the term "blooded" for combat experienced troops - eitek1
While I agree that is what Wikipedia said I read elsewhere the Roman reference for that. The reference makes logical sense. http://horridhistory.weebly.com/war-elephants-in-the-ancient-roman-military.html...

re: Do Military services still use the term "blooded" for combat experienced troops - eitek1
[quote]quote: My personal favorite that I've heard " He's been to see the elephant, or he's seen the elephant". I believe the term is that someone who has been in combat has "seen the elephant". I think this term originated during the American Civil War. I also think the term fell out of use b...

re: What percentage of racism is actual racism - eitek1
I agree. My wife is from the Appalachian mountains. There are lots of poor people there. Lots and lots of poor white people. Personally, I don't want anyone to be poor. I used to be short on finances and didn't like it so I changed my situation. I want everyone to do the same. I think there ...

re: What percentage of racism is actual racism - eitek1
If someone treats me poorly, I think their an a-hole. If I'm black and the same white guy treats me poorly is that racism? How do you discern if you are being treated just the same as white folks and the guy is just an a-hole? I once had a discussion with a 40 something black lady about ra...

re: Chuck Yeager comments on the F-35 and F-22 - eitek1
I'm a big fan of Chuck Yeager and have read his biography and other stuff. He is firmly in "you kids get off my lawn" area. The guy is 93 years old though and deserves to act however he wants to. Keep this in mind, he's a 93 year old guy on Twitter. That says something. ...

I didn't read all the responses but you have a tripped Ground fault circuit interrupter. The GFCI are used in locations where water may be present. One GFCI can protect many items in the circuit as long as they are down stream in the circuit. Your sink and shower lights are on it because o...

re: Are cars that sat in the flood up to their windows salvageable? - eitek1
I'll give you a different answer. I've actually thought about this. If I were to buy a vehicle in the condition that you describe, to feel comfortable driving it I'd do the following. Change the fluids in the engine and transmission. The engine is effectively sealed. Oil can't get out and to...
