re: Is the book board now going to be the default history board? - PenguinNinja on 5/24/17 at 9:09 am
Was just coming here to ask what's up on a history board since we seem to be splintering into boards for everything. I don't want to talk Assyrian history with a crowd there to discuss The Grapes of Wrath or Harry Potter. ...

re: HVAC Experts - How do I know if I have a coil leak? - PenguinNinja on 5/9/17 at 8:05 pm
He didn't say how many pounds light it was, and I didn't know to ask. His note on the invoice says "Pressures are low on system, if temperature in home starts to raise it will be due to refrigerant lost. Box coil is under 5 yr warranty' It's a 2012 Lennox 5-ton gas 2- zone - Box Coil 2014 Len...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
HVAC Experts - How do I know if I have a coil leak? - PenguinNinja on 5/9/17 at 7:56 pm
Had the A/C guy come by for a quick check-up on my A/C system before the summer gets brutal (nothing seemed to be wrong...just a preventative check & tune-up, or whatever). He hooks his pressure gauges up to the condenser unit outside and tells me he's getting abnormally low pressure readings, and ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (18)
re: "Fudging" salary when telling someone - PenguinNinja on 5/8/17 at 10:43 pm
Telling someone how much you make is in poor form, and should be avoided at all costs...including if they ask. To mention it in the absence of a direct query positively reeks of insecurity. Just so you know what everyone who has any inkling of class is thinking to themselves when you do th...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
Caribbean All-Inclusive Resorts for Families - PenguinNinja on 5/4/17 at 12:49 pm
What are some options to look into? Looking for something that welcomes kids, but is more designed for adults (i.e. not looking for a Nickelodeon-themed resort). Would like to have some off-resort options for things to do nearby as well. Anywhere in the Caribbean is on the table, including ...

Do urgent care visits cost significantly more than appointments with a PCP dr? - PenguinNinja on 5/1/17 at 7:51 pm
I have a high-deductible health plan, so I'm paying out of pocket either way. Had to go to the urgent care last week for the same issue that my wife (no pics) now needs to go for, so she's basically just going to get a prescription for antibiotics. I walked in and out of the urgent care within 2...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (18)
re: Are We In A New Era Of The Cold War? - PenguinNinja on 4/20/17 at 7:19 pm
I'm so tired of this shite. The Cold War never ended, and continues to this day. The tensions are more like a dimmer switch that's turned way down, rather than a light switch that's either on or off. Imo...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
What's the appeal of Freaks & Geeks? - PenguinNinja on 3/21/17 at 10:37 pm
To be clear, I'm not saying there isn't an appeal, I've just never seen the show so I don't know what it is. I just watched the first episode, and it got me curious as to what about the series drives the cult following. Is it that it's hilarious? The nostalgia factor? Feel good? I trust I...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (17)
Where do I bring a set of knives to get sharpened? - PenguinNinja on 3/21/17 at 7:06 pm
Mine haven't been sharpened properly in like 8 years. Who could I bring them to to restore them to top quality sharpness? How much will it set me back?...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (22)
Legally, what physical discipline constitutes abuse these days? - PenguinNinja on 3/21/17 at 7:02 pm
My 8-month old son was eating tonight, and he threw some food at his mom and yelled. I found myself thinking that if he were 8 years old and did that, I maybe inclined to give him a swift, appropriately firm,open-handed pop upside the back of his head. I don't think seeing this in public would...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (11)
re: Who are the biggest douches in rock music? - PenguinNinja on 3/16/17 at 10:05 pm
Not really rock music, but this Father John Misty cat is quickly climbing the douchebag charts in the token attention-whoring hipster douchebag category. ...

Recommendations for wireless home security camera system - PenguinNinja on 3/14/17 at 8:52 pm
Looking for something that I can install myself easily, has good camera quality, is motion activated, is accessible / controllable via an app (i.e. I get sent notifications to my phone when the camera is activated) and records. I have a Sonos wireless speaker setup in my home, and I'd love someth...
