re: A train carrying oil exploded in Texas. Too bad we don't have ways to pipe this around... - Fletch1985
Again, uninformed. A significant percentage of US refining capacity is specifically designed to process heavy crude, like from the oil sands. These refineries can’t simply switch to light sweet crude from the US. If heavy crude can’t be sourced from Canada, then it must be sourced from Mexico, Vene...

re: A train carrying oil exploded in Texas. Too bad we don't have ways to pipe this around... - Fletch1985
Canadian oil already moves via rail to Texas refineries because of limited pipeline capacity. More such oil will move to Texas refineries via rail because of the KXL cancellation. ...

re: A train carrying oil exploded in Texas. Too bad we don't have ways to pipe this around... - Fletch1985
This is where you are completely wrong. KXL would transport Canadian oil from Alberta to Steele City NE, where the oil would get onto the Marketlink pipeline system to the USGC. All other cross border oil pipelines are at capacity. So any incremental Canadian oil must move via rail since KXL has bee...

re: Simple question for anyone complaining about the situation in Texas - Fletch1985
Does anyone have one of these and care to provide a product review? I use a mr buddy propane heater but have to be careful about CO so somewhat defeats the purpose when you crack a window. Does the kerosene avoid this? Does it emit smoke/odor? Is it actually kerosene or camp fuel? Where ca...

re: If Texas's central grid only relied on solar & wind energy, would anyone have electricity? - Fletch1985
Go read Alex Epstein. He’s on Twitter but for those boycotting check his website The Center for Industrial Progress. His recent Twitter posts accurately explain the situation. He posted charts similar to the one in the OP for all other US grid operators. They tell the story. If you really wa...

re: Over under shotguns - Fletch1985
Both great guns. Maybe consider a new beretta silver pigeon for not much more than these guns used. Onyx has nicer wood and extended chokes, but you would have to be pretty serious shooter for those to matter a lot. Recommend field grade safety if hunting mostly. If at skeet field mostly that auto s...

re: are people aware both Vid vaccines are the first ever mRNA vaccines for humans? - Fletch1985
This post exemplifies how most people in health science miss the point and defeat their own purpose. When you try too hard to prove you are right, in the face of a significant history of error in the health science field over time, you lose the credibility you desire. If you want people to ...

re: are people aware both Vid vaccines are the first ever mRNA vaccines for humans? - Fletch1985
Cutter Manufacturing incident turned the public against the Salk polio vaccine, as it should have. Do we know with certainty there are no manufacturing defects with mRNA vaccines given the speed of production and federal liability shield? I’m not an anti vaxxer but people who balance risk reward ...

re: are people aware both Vid vaccines are the first ever mRNA vaccines for humans? - Fletch1985
Keep in mind there are different types of the covid vaccine that use different technology. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine coming out soon uses a different technology that has more long term data. Still relatively new but 6-7 years of data from the Ebola vaccine. Personal choice but if you want to...

If you want to understand the potential downside of new vaccines, research the history of the polio vaccine. Many kids died or contracted polio because of poor vaccine design or manufacturing ...

re: US Capitol Building breached - peaceful protestors take control of both chambers - Fletch1985
Illegal harvesting of mail in ballots is what changed the election, and it’s almost impossible to prove, especially when Democrats are good at it. Do people really think the person that got paid to fill out a ballot a certain way is going to admit it? Look up what happened in 2018 Southern Califo...

re: Taco Bell gets a lot of blame for tummy troubles but it doesn't compare to milk - Fletch1985
Fresh dairy like milk, ice cream, yogurt, and non-aged cheese (mozzarella, American) have higher levels of lactose. Aged cheese (parmigiana, some cheddars) won’t give as many problems. Goat cheese has very low lactose. Don’t suffer! Drink lactose free milk and use it for cooking (gravy, etc) ...
