Trivia Game Query

Has anybody ever taken an I.Q. test? The reason I ask is that I've noticed an increase in my scores, and am starting to conclude that the game has a lot to do with logical thinking, rather than actual knowledge, and I've heard that an I.Q. test is based like-wise.

Any opinions?

80% AR lowers?

Anyway, so many firearms having passed through so many people's hands and without any laws regarding record keeping on private sales or background checks for them who can say who has what! This too, is true. Makes me wonder how the current crop of Democrat anti's, (any politico, really), are going ...

80% AR lowers?

Where you're at, I can believe it. Here in Iowa, my local "shows" are kinda dismal, so I have to take what I can get all too often. And you're right. The prices of fully machined or stripped lowers are quite attractive, but I wanted the anonymity of an 80% with no paper trail. Thinkin' I might build...

80% AR lowers?

Anybody have any experience with them?

I picked one up a couple weeks ago, along with the jigs. (I know, it's an expensive way to get a lower.)

I went to a gunshow in Miami today, there was a stainless "Old Army" there and I was sorely tempted, but I left it there :-(
So, you're having non-buyer's remorse? :? [-X

OB Props with HUGE 'holes' in the blade surface ... faster to spool up, plane & WOT!

Makes one wonder how long it will be before this tech finds it's way into the small aviation world, or the world of airboats. This might also have a place in the compressor vanes of turbine and jet engines. One would think the commercial airline industry certainly looks for something like this. Roger

Tree stand still there

Possibly animal rights activists. They don't want you knowing what's out there. Stealing the memory cards are most likely a misdemeanor, but taking the whole camera might jack up the penalties to jail time. It's sometimes surprising how much research criminals will do. Could also be trespassers. Saw...

Vaping

Jim, I ordered one. That may help me find those small air leaks. As for the stick incense, I don't think that would be wise since it is aircraft fuel trucks I am working on and they wouldn't be happy knowing I am under them with a smoldering flame. Thanks for the tip. Agreed! Didn't know those deta...

Vaping

I work on big trucks and would like to be able to blow some smoke around to find small air leaks. Hey, KMixson; Might I suggest stick incense? Yeah, the stuff that "head shops" used to sell to cover up the smell of pot. Gives a smoke trail while it's burning, but doesn't burn with a flame, more of ...

Vaping

Roger,if you've seen the movie "Idiocracy" you will see where I honestly think we're headed. Hmmm. I'll have to look up a copy to watch. PS, after a neighbor died of lung cancer in 85 I too quit cold turkey and never looked back. This supports my thought process that any smoker can quit cold turkey...

Vaping

Quit smoking, (cold turkey), four years ago, now. At that time, vaping was really catching on pretty heavy, but somehow, I knew it wasn't a good thing. I couldn't help but think, Asbestos was a wonder material too, but look what we learned about it. Tobacco was too, for that matter. Maybe I give too...

Now, 'Dubs......you know better. Stay home, let the fish grow a bit more. They'll be there when you get back from the celebratory vacation. You mess around too much, and the damage could become permanent.

Just sayin'.....Roger

Electric Beaver (airplane, that is)

The biggest problem with electrics anything is our lack of battery technology that limits us to distance as far as vehicle usage is concerned. I suppose it remains to be seen if we have gone as far as we can go with DC power storage means, as we could be at our limits due to materials available to u...
