re: Thinking about a new vehicle: SUV or Truck? - eitek1
My wife's 04 trailblazer has 315k miles on it. At 225k miles I put leather seats in it and put new carpet in making the interior look brand new. At 315k miles it still looks basically brand new. I drove it to Arkansas and back last weekend without an issue. My wife just wants something new....

re: Thinking about a new vehicle: SUV or Truck? - eitek1
I'll probably be buying a 4Runner in the next few weeks. A vehicle for me is around a 15 year commitment. I really appreciate reliability. The 4Runner looked like the most bang for the buck hands down and the killer reliability is a plus. I'm looking forward to buying it....

re: War Dog: A Soldiers Best Friend HBO series - eitek1
I watched it and ai agree. How long do you think it's going to be before that guy sues HBO for making him look bad? He seems like the type that would do it. That documentary is going to follow that guy around forever. What goes around comes around and I think his is coming around....

re: How old and how did your kid find out about Santa? - eitek1
My take on it is a little bit different I guess. There is a "Santa" in my family at least. For me, my son is "Santa". He is the one that let's me enjoy Christmas and gives me the gift of believing in Christmas. That is a gift that only he can give me. For my son, I am Santa. I give him the gif...

re: talk to the dead, they can hear you for up to 3 days - eitek1
I read a study not too long ago where they hooked up to monitor the brains of people they they knew were going to die. I think it was five folks in total. Three of the folks lost electrical activity immediately. Two of the people on the other hand showed electrical activity for somewhere aroun...

re: Negotiating price on a vehicle - eitek1
Go to cargurus.com and search nationally for the exact car you want. Get the lowest listed price nationally and print it out. Walk in your dealership and tell them I'll pay this much plus the price of an airplane ticket. If they say no buy the ticket and fly to pick up your new ride. I think it'...

re: Mass shooting on Vegas Strip discussion - eitek1
Thanks for that. I agree with you that something is afoul with this investigation. They won't release ANYTHING and if you remember within hours they released video of Mohammed Atta going through security. My take is that Stephen Paddock was the "setup man" for a Mumbai style attack. Here's why...

re: Mass shooting on Vegas Strip discussion - eitek1
I'm not doubting what you are saying becaus you have obviously looked at this more than I have. Also, I never said the SWAT guy only had ONE charge I said he had A charge. The same SWAT guy could have had multiple charges. Based on what you are saying one of the things below are true... 1....

Read the article. It was not the swat team. There was one SWAT guy on the Ad Hoc team with a breaching charge. He was the only swat guy there. [quote]After the shooting began, a group of officers formed an ad-hoc SWAT team to storm the gunman's room. For the first time, they describe to Bill W...

[quote] C) When a reporter asked Lombardo how many cell phones Paddock had, he didn't know the answer and turned to an FBI agent in the room and repeated the question. To which the agent said "I don't believe it prudent we give out that information". Then Lombardo told the reporter "I don't know ho...

re: Instrument Tech and Plant Baws - eitek1
I started out in the industry in I/E. I went out of state to get my experience. I worked in Illinois for 3 years because they aren't inundated with I/E techs and such up there. Better job market but I still worked for a contractor. Here's the difference for me at least. If you are an I/E tech,...
