re: Is having a bugout vehicle for an apocalypse type situation as useful as it seems? - Decisions
[quote]first 6 months until most people die and things calm down[/quote] It’s not even going to take 6 months. There would be a LOT of starving and murder going on in the first month, especially in and around cities. Shortly after that I wouldn’t be surprised to see the system break down to...

re: Malazan Book of the Fallen - Decisions
What’s that he wrote in the author’s note of the tenth book? “What’s half a trillion words between friends?” Yeah, the books/series are long but it’s such a good read. Well worth the payoff. Some of my favorite characters don’t even get introduced until the fifth book. You know the ones. T...

re: Ghost getting too hoppy? - Decisions
Parish puts out plenty of good stuff. I’ve had Ghost multiple times, Envie, Canebrake, etc. I’m not some newbie to craft beer. It was just a recent bad experience I thought worth bringing up. I probably just got a bad/overfresh batch....

Ghost getting too hoppy? - Decisions
I was out last night, drinking beer and shooting the bull, when I decided to order a Ghost in the Machine to mix it up. Mind you, I’ve had it plenty of times before and never noticed anything, but this go around it was notably harsh going down and sat in my stomach like ball of hot iron. Not p...

re: Did the McDonald brothers (original McD's) get royally screwed, or were they just stupid? - Decisions
The brothers lacked vision. I don’t really blame Kroc in the grand scheme of things. He could have made ALL of them wealthy if they had just cooperated. They didn’t. So he did what he had to....

re: Increasing drought and heat tolerance (yard) - Decisions
Pull some soil samples to see what your fertility/soil type is for starters. If anything is bad out of whack (pH is usually the big killer) have it addressed. The more fertile the soil the stronger your plants will be and their ability to weather tough conditions. Beyond that it’s rather diffic...

re: French fries: what do you dip them in? - Decisions
Can gravy count as a condiment? Because I love running French fries through some gravy. I also enjoy Cane’s sauce occasionally. Honestly, though, a good French fry doesn’t need anything more than salt/pepper(/occasionally Tony’s)....

re: Is $1 million a lot of money in 2019? - Decisions
[quote]Nah, that's a good way to lose everything, TBH. I'm not some investing genius who is going to beat the market. My assumption is that the less I do, the better. Sorry, but (at least in my case), "laziness" is the correct strategy.[/quote] You just made yourself Exhibit A for what I was sayi...

re: What is eating my peas and beans and how do I kill it? - Decisions
The pod damage looks like worms to me, but I haven’t grown beans in years so don’t take my word on that. If it WAS worms, though, BT ought to knock them out, but you’ll need to apply it fairly regularly (i.e. once a week or every other week). Acephate will also do the trick, but again you ...
