re: The Radium Girls — still glowing in their coffins - wiltznucs
I worked with Radioactive Materials for nearly 20 years. This is the usual case study for Radiation Biology and is certainly among the more fascinating incidents. Other good ones are the Marshall Islanders after the US atomic bomb testing in the Pacific. The US failed to consider wind direction ...

re: So we have the homebrew threads, but anyone ferment their own wine? - wiltznucs
I own Garagiste Meadery in Tampa, FL. We specialize in mead; but, we've been known to dabble in traditional table wines from time to time. Our first commercial offerings should be out there this Summer. FL distro only for the time being. Wine kits are pretty much fool proof as I mentioned ea...

re: So we have the homebrew threads, but anyone ferment their own wine? - wiltznucs
I've homebrewed a few, now I do it for a living and own a winery. Some great kits out there that have won numerous awards in reputable competitions. The only challenge with kits is that they are typically made to be fool proof. This often means the included yeast strain is a aggressive cham...

re: If InBev bought Parish and MillerCoors bought Great Raft... - wiltznucs
My issue with the buyouts is basically two parts. First is economic, the money that used to be generated was American and at least in theory was spent here. Now those profits and to some extent jobs flow to Europe and South Africa. The second is my belief that the logical endgame for ABInBe...

re: Which city has the best food in all of America? - wiltznucs
I love NOLA and think it does a wonderful job showcasing regional cuisine that simply isn't duplicated in any other corner of the world. Given its relative size, NOLA is quite impressive albeit a bit romanticized too. What NOLA lacks is variety. This is where NYC, San Fran, Chicago, Miami (I kn...

re: Kenmore Elite Refrigerator stopped Cooling - wiltznucs
Just replaced our Kenmore fridge. Only six years old. Been loud as hell for the past two years. Had to replace the freezer coil, a thermostat and the French door seal in the past year to the tune of $1,200. Water and ice stopped working a week or two ago. Quote was another $300 to switch out an ...

re: What watch are you wearing today? - wiltznucs
Not a great pic, but it's my daily wear watch. Had it for about four years now. [img]http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b121/wiltznucs/IMG_9219_zpsvzx1rtul.jpg[/img]...

re: Gobbler question - wiltznucs
It's a day to day thing. I hunted a WMA near Ocala a few weeks back for a few days. We literally didn't hear a gobble or see a Tom for the first two days. The third morning the woods came alive and I'm sure I heard no less than 10 gobblers that morning from where I stood. Don't let anyone disc...

re: At what age did you realize that WWE was fake? - wiltznucs
[quote]crippled by the time they are 45[/quote] I'm sure that the rampant steroid, alcohol and drug abuse combined with life on the road are a factor here too. Wrestlers are physical specimens but having worked with several I can assure you it's what's going on outside the ring that's killing ...

re: 100+ mug shots from Tampa Bay for the weekend of 3/25 - wiltznucs
Tampa has its fair share of lunatics, no doubt about it. St Pete is worse. I've always theorized that FL's moderate climate attracts homeless and undesirables. That said, if this scares you try visiting the FL panhandle sometime. One of these folks could be the local Mayor up there. Tampa is a...

re: For the turkey hunters - wiltznucs
Congrats, not expecting much this season. Got a public land tag for the last weekend of March. Likely my only hunts this year. Private land access has dried up with my old stomping grounds being sold for residential development....
