[quote]Manda is terrible.[/quote] I have never had it (that I know of) but this is everyone I know says it is terrible. How do they sell so much of it? Is it cheap, I have never bothered to look because I never plan to buy it. ...

[quote]Pulled into the parking lot and drove through a low area which flooded the engine. [/quote] Did the engine stop abruptly? If so there is a good chance it is hydrolocked. Connecting rods and pistons are designed to compress and air-fuel mixture when they encounter an incompressible liquid...
[quote] I really, really wish that F1 would put it back on the schedule.[/quote] The problem is they would effectively have to build an entire new car (even if the Indy formula was opened up for them) and Pirelli would have to develop a whole new tire for one race. Just ask Michelin, Toyota, and...
[quote] having your back waxed (after the finished process, because it can suck) feels great afterward when you throw on a shirt.[/quote] I keep my legs shaved during the season for cycling and after shaving the first time in early April sliding into fresh sheets that night is fricking incredible....

Yes, the Triple Crown is incredible but if you are a motorsports fan and slept on the MotoGP Sprint and Feature @ Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya this weekend you missed out. Leclerc shook off the curse of Monaco. Forza Ferrari! ...

[quote]1740 - 2000 calories. That’s more calories than you need in an entire day.[/quote] I would lose over 1/2 pound a day on that puny caloric intake. ...

[quote]This is an illusion to get you to pay more money. If you live in a great neighborhood you don't need an HOA.[/quote] Not remotely true. Every neighborhood with more than 10 houses will get "that guy" sooner or later. ...
[quote]Downtown where? We are scattered around the globe. Can't assume we know where you're talking about.[/quote] If downtown is mentioned on TD with no other identifier I think it is safe to assume it means BR given that is the epicenter for the entire reason this forum exists. ...
[quote] Recall seeing a video of the N&W 611 struggling/stalling on Saluda and it's a far more powerful locomotive than the 4501.[/quote] I was actually on that run. I used to model the Saluda grade in N scale. I tried to copy the prototype from the mid-80s. The operations both up and downg...
[quote]I've piloted that locomotive before. 2009 iirc, the last time it was in the US.[/quote] That is very cool. In the 90s I got a cab ride up the Saluda Grade (at the time the steepest mainline grade in the US, 4.7%) in Southern Railway 4501. It was being assisted by the Ex Sou GP59 still in...

re: Beach Trips

Posted by Obtuse1 on 5/25/24 at 5:41 pm
For us the beach is just a foyer for the ocean. If there isn't good snorkeling or diving there isn't much draw for more than an hour. If there is a nice reef or lagoon with lots of varied critters in and around it then we will spend all day in the water. We wear 2mm shorty wetsuits so we don't ha...
The Wheel of Fortune slot machines are made by IGT. They are like the Kia of slot machines. Some people may remember two men sued IGT and NOLA Harrah's maybe 20 years ago for the same issue and won over $1 million at trial because Harrah's and IGT couldn't prove to the jury that a malfunction o...

[quote] Including professional degrees... Vanderbilt MD Texas A&M M.Eng Alabama JD Auburn DVM[/quote] Alabama is an odd pick for best JD in the SEC, if you include Texas they are the 6th most prestigious behind: Vandy, UGA, TAMA, UF, and Texas. I have no idea about the rest of those. ...
[quote]The only LLMs worth getting are tax LLMs from a NY school, Georgetown, or UF[/quote] You forgot Northwestern and UVA If we were talking JDs in the SEC and count Texas then both Texas and Vandy are right outside the coveted T14. UGA is by far the best value in a high-level law school (...
