re: I've been thinking lately about some of the great American cities that've become shitholes - HighlyFavoredTiger

re: Time for a New Weed-whacker - HighlyFavoredTiger
Echo SRM-225, the best $199 I ever spent on a lawn tool. It’s 6-7 years old, you pump the primer bulb 5 times, put in on choke, pull twice, it tries to start, you take it off choke and pull 1 time, it starts, idle 45 seconds to a minute and start cutting, doesn’t matter how thick the grass is. It ru...

re: Fished table rock? - HighlyFavoredTiger
We stayed at Big Cedar Lodge about 5 years ago and my wife got me a half day guided trip for our anniversary, I had never fished with a guide but the one I had would cause me to think hard before using a guide again. I don’t remember his name and he may not still be there but it was a waste of $400....

re: Case Knives - HighlyFavoredTiger
I buy Case XX from Deadwoodknives.com, they have about the best online prices and very quick service, I’ve ordered over 30 from them and none have taken more than 4 days to get to me. They only show new knives on their site, not sure where you’d hunt for a 60s-70s version, maybe eBay, collectors sit...

re: Iran begins restricting watchdogs - HighlyFavoredTiger
Regardless of who likes or don’t like it, Israel knows their region of the world better than anyone, their survival depends on it and they know that Iran plans to eventually try to wipe them off the face of the planet because Iran has openly told the world that. Israel has spies and surveillance all...

re: It’s time we have widespread adoption of nuclear power. - HighlyFavoredTiger
Nuclear has proven itself and should be a strong energy consideration in the future. If we compare building cost and construction time, the most recent nuclear builds in America are the Vogtle plants that have about broke Southern Company and we instrumental in bankrupting Westinghouse. They were st...

re: Colorado Springs advice - HighlyFavoredTiger
You can kill a lot of slack time chatting with the bums, homeless and groups that look like stoned out junkies, there were piles of them all at every red light, on the street corners, in store parking lots, prettymuch everywhere we went about 18 moths ago when our family had to to there for a busine...

re: Federal regulations and green energy subsidies are 100% to blame, and people are dying - HighlyFavoredTiger
The energy market, as compared to other free market enterprises, doesn’t really determine what is lowest cost or best price, because there has been and still is so much government interference in the electric energy supply, including regulation and deregulation. Government subsidies have skewed the...

This will be a valuable learning experience for Texas, some things are hard to predict or fully anticipate until you actually experience an event. Then you can use real life events to tweak your future preparations, Texas basically has its own grid and has been touted as being able to isolate from t...

Let’s say that Texas and the rest of the nation decide tomorrow that nuclear is THE way to correct these problems going forward and every power company decided to build one, you’re looking at 8 to 12 years before any one of them is completed, taking into consideration the permitting, due diligence, ...

re: Reasons why Texas power grid failed: - HighlyFavoredTiger
Use of nuclear has gotten safer over the decades and the nature of the product and byproducts of nuclear require nothing less than extreme built in safety measures.
