re: What’s your solution to fix the corruption and rot in DC? - ChEgrad
If we had some real journalism that reports facts and exposes corruption, that would go a long way towards cleaning it up. However, that is extremely unlikely so it will probably take an actual insurrection. Which will then be followed by more corruption. ...

re: Question for you civil engineers. Does the levee system make coastal erosion worse? - ChEgrad
[quote]Yes. That’s pretty well known by everyone. That’s why they’re planning on cutting a couple of spots in the levee south of New Orleans to let the river flow into those spots again. [/quote] If done improperly, it will not help. I was friends with one of the worlds leading authorities on sed...

re: Besh’s Crawfish Etoufee’. - ChEgrad
With that dark roux it looks more like crawfish stew - which I really enjoy, but for me étouffée is much lighter in color and thicker. My wife’s étouffée is awesome and, sadly, I am usually disappointed greatly if I eat étouffée in a restaurant. ...

[quote]In South Dakota, Biden’s unity-branded administration is using the pandemic to cancel 4th of July fireworks at Mt. Rushmore. [/quote] Shame. The fireworks at Mt Rushmore will make you proud to be an American. Awesome experience. Not surprised Biden would cancel. He has no pride in Amer...

re: Woodworking Hand Planes - ChEgrad
I have several Veritas (low angle jack, low angle smoother, regular no 4, and a shooting plane) and just bought several older Sargent planes off eBay and fixed them up. A 408 and two 414s (equivalent to a #3 and #5 Stanley). The Sargents sell for a bit less than Stanley and that is why I got them. T...

re: Is it fair to say a college graduate is indoctrinated rather than educated? - ChEgrad
[quote]quote: I understand it could be both and for the most part I’ll leave STEM graduates out, although they too get plenty of Marxist indoctrination poured into their college education. Disagree. I was STEM and felt 0 indoctrination. Its hard to put a liberal slant when you're teaching some...

re: Math geeks have you watched the numberphile video: 1+2+3+4+...=-1/12? - ChEgrad
I did a quick look. I need to watch again, but he said 2xS2 = S + S or something like that. Then they shift the second S series by one place, get an answer and divide by 2 to get S2. I don’t think you can shift one series like that and pretend it doesn’t really matter. ...

re: Sec Baseball Stats - ChEgrad
Summary: LSU offense is average in terms of runs scored. Well below average in batting average, striking out, etc., but hit enough home runs to compensate somewhat. LSU’s defense is well below average. LSU’s pitching is terrible - especially relief pitching. ...

re: Marceaux Tonight-Best Pitched Game Since??? - ChEgrad
Great job by Marceaux. In the back of my mind, Nola had a sub 90 pitch complete game or two. Those are the kind of games I like. Especially with our poor bullpen. ...

re: What are some brands/products today that are just as good as they’ve ever been? - ChEgrad
[quote]My first thought is the kitchen aid mixer I bought as a gift. That thing feels like it was made in the 1950s. Heavy duty metal and so far runs like a champ.[/quote] I’m not sure this is true. I have rebuilt one KitchenAid mixer. Lots of plastic inside. Not sure what the old ones were like,...

re: Smoking Brisket - Advice/Help Needed - ChEgrad
Pull the brisket when the flat probes “like butter.” This could be 195. It could be as high as 210. 203 is probably average, but it depends on the particular brisket and your smoking conditions. Lower temperatures and it will probe easily at a lower temp. Higher smoking temps may lead to a higher f...

re: Trendon Watford declares for the NBA, will sign with an agent - ChEgrad
[quote]He has a center's game and speed in a power forward's body.[/quote] I can’t see how this can be more wrong. He is not an elite interior defender. Or perimeter for that matter. He plays low to the ground. He does not play with his back to the basket. He is not a dominant rebounder. In short...
