re: CNN - it was “unfortunate” that cadets weren’t actually racist - gorillacoco
[quote]how is this your logic?[/quote] Because actual racism and bigotry would be worse than someone faking it for attention. I don't see how damaging the credibility of racism victims in the future is as bad as actual racism. Again I'll compare it to someone faking their own death and framing so...

[quote]That's not true at all. In fact it harms people of all walks because it casts doubt on future racism claims[/quote] Well I'm not saying it's not harmful at all. I'm just saying it's a better scenario than option #2....

[quote] Why would this make someone happy? If it’s not a hoax, a crappy person did it. If it is a hoax, a crappy person did it. [/quote] Because a hoax is a lot better than an actual scenario where bigots feel comfortable enough to openly intimidate other people. I would compare this to C...

re: Recommend a podcast for my drive to BR tomorrow - gorillacoco
I'll second the Hardcore History rec. another alternative would be History on Fire. Try the first one on the Spanish conquest of Mexico. That is an amazing story right there. If you want short ones, try downloading a bunch of That's How I Heard it with Mike Rowe, or The History of the World in On...

Jerky, kind bars, king cake when you can get it. And black coffee in a thermos. That hot coffee in a cold blind watching a sunrise might be the best drink I've ever had....

re: At what temp do you think it's safe to leave a deer overnight? - gorillacoco
[quote]Yes, it will take awhile for that bacteria to migrate from the gut to the actual meat, but it will. Even if the animal has bled pretty good, blood is the perfect food for bacteria and vessels serve as highways in to the meat. Some gut parasites actually reproduce this way, counting on being e...

re: At what temp do you think it's safe to leave a deer overnight? - gorillacoco
[quote]Huge difference between hanging a field dressed carcass and leaving the guts in it.[/quote] The old recommended way to hang ducks is guts and all, provided they're not gutshot. How do the guts spoil the meat if you don't shoot the deer in the guts? There's no way for the guts to get in...

re: At what temp do you think it's safe to leave a deer overnight? - gorillacoco
I have no idea why people are so squeamish about whole animals sitting for a night. People used to age their meat by hanging it for days if not weeks and I guarantee that great grandpa didn't have a temperature and humidity controlled meat locker. Especially if the deer is whole and the meat is whol...

re: The Abu Ghraib prison was pretty messed up - gorillacoco
[quote]I don't give a frick. To me they weren't humans. They don't deserve any rights or humane treatment.[/quote] That's fricked up. How can you have this attitude about every single prisoner there without knowing any of the circumstances of their arrests? How can you condone torturing people en m...

Gift recommendations for a workout junkie - gorillacoco
My bro in law has basically acted as a personal trainer for me for a couple of years now. Long story short he's a solid dude and I wanted to get him a present for his birthday. Any suggestions <$100? He has a pretty complete home gym but if you have a non standard piece of equipment you like, throw ...

re: Probably the wrong place to bring this, but does anyone have advice about depression? - gorillacoco
Exercise, stop drinking and cut back on caffeine. Reach out to friends and family and try to be more social. Go find a counselor/therapist. If you don't like the first one or they don't help, get another one. Nothing is a magic pill that will fix it immediately; you'll have to start laying the b...

re: Salt Lake City nurse gets 500K settlement - gorillacoco
[quote]and she deserves to be rewarded for it.[/quote] The police need to be fined or fired for something like that but why does the woman deserve half a million dollars? I don't think "deserve" means what you think it means. She was wrongfully assaulted and detained. Does that equal enough money...

re: Electrician cost to repair double and triple lugging - gorillacoco
If I'm understanding correctly, and there are just multiple wires terminated on the same lugs in your neutral and ground buses, it should be very cheap (for electrical work) to get it fixed, maybe a couple hundred dollars? It's not much work to de-terminate and re-terminate wires if the spare termin...

re: Best way to defrost fish that’s frozen in blocks of ice - gorillacoco
The short answer is running water. The long answer is that if you do this with any regularity, you would get a lot of value out of purchasing a vacuum packer. I used to freeze fish in water and hated always thawing them out. Now it takes literally less than 10 mins to thaw out a pack of fish. ...

You're worried about the total distance from your main panel. 60' is really not very far though. In all likelihood it's a bad or corroded connection somewhere....

You could try testing the resistance across each connection before you determinate anything. See if you can find one with some non-zero res....
