re: Obama declared a national emergency to combat swine flu. - smoked hog
[quote]H1N1 had the potential to turn very ugly, and we were incredibly lucky that it mutated away from the more virulent and deadly strain of 1918. [/quote] Thats not exactly how it works. It didn't mutate away because it never was the strain of 1918. Just because they were both an H1N1 strain...

re: Amazon cancels New York City HQ. SJWs rejoice over loss of 25,000 new jobs - smoked hog
[quote]But if every city and state in the country would quit cutting these big companies huge tax breaks just to get them to move there, it would be better for everyone.[/quote] I get what you are saying but you can't convince everyone to quit. So as long as a few are doing it you have to pay to...

re: I work with a Mexican national - smoked hog
I was an ESL coordinator in Little Rock school district for a couple years. By far the most pissed off people concerning illegals were the ones that had put in the hard work and came here legally only to see the area flooded by illegals. I haven't met the redneck racist that can hold a candle to a l...

re: You find out some dude is texting your SO? Update in OP - smoked hog
I want to go full troll on this but instead let me give you sound advice from someone who has been on both ends of this. Politely but firmly let her know your not comfortable with this and ask her to end it. There is no upside for her to continue, there is quite a bit of downside. If you are f...

re: Sad day to be an American... - smoked hog
[quote]I remember reading that they would pay for their flight and hotel. Once they flipped the script on the "modeling" and if they didn't agree, they would be on the hook for paying for the flight and hotel. [/quote] This is the only case that I would really feel sorry the girls. If this is t...

re: Tobacco Use Among Teens is Trending Up - smoked hog
I may end up being the minority but I tried using a vape to quit smoking. It hurt my chest way worse than smoking did. I'm still not convinced that there isn't going to be a huge backlash eventually when they figure out that vaping poses some really serious health risk in its own right. ...

re: RAM reveals its new split tail gate system - smoked hog
I haven't had a ram in years but I love this idea. I can still use tailgate normally but I get tired of having to lean way over to pull shite out of the bed or lift things an extra 2 feet if I don't put the tailgate down. I also have used the bed step before, nicer for stepping down than climbing up....

re: What were you thinking when he said "We would be in a war with NK if I weren't president" - smoked hog
While it was cringe worthy it is kind of impossible to prove or disprove. I do know however that 14 months ago my BIL was stationed in SK. At the time of deployment we were very concerned about him being there. We were much less worried by the time he got back than when he started. Tensions have...

re: Florida eliminating Common Core - smoked hog
It isn't the common core itself that is so bad. It is the broad adoption of Engage NY that is the problem. The principles are sound but many districts have said that this is the only way we are teaching it and it has to be worked a particular way to be correct. I'm a high school physics teacher ...

re: Why do middle aged white men love vest so much? - smoked hog
I recommend the crap out of vest for active people who know how to layer. I know I don't have Alaska or NY weather but the highs have been on average low 40's here for the last few months. I love to bowhunt, big jackets that will keep you warm for a 10 hour sit make it dang near impossible to shoo...

re: Why do middle aged white men love vest so much? - smoked hog
I don't wear one out causally, but for hunting and working outside they are great. Allow me to layer my core without restricting arm movement. I may look like a tool but I'll be comfortable. ...

re: HVAC thread name change: Help me out with AC tonnage. (bottom of page 1) - smoked hog
First get another estimate. I had 2 new units installed 2 years ago and my gap wasn't nearly that high. That was with a 3 ton and a 2 ton unit I believe. The multiple zones is well worth it. I don't spend time upstairs during the daytime. We pretty much only sleep there. I can kick on the air/...

re: Deer Processing Knives - smoked hog
90% of my processing is done with 4 knives. I use a dexter Russel fish knife aka beaver skinner. Swept rounded skinning knife, very thin carbon steel blade. Will dull quickly but sharpens in seconds. Great for skinning but works really well for separating muscle groups. I use this knife more than a...

re: Soaking Meat - smoked hog
Cooler at an angle, plug open allowing any water to drain. I don't have a walk in cooler so it is the closest to aging I can realistically pull off. I don't want to soak it but I refuse to let processors handle my animals. Work means I don't always have the time or feel like boning and packaging w...
