  1. Back in the 70's my father in law built a concrete hull sailboat in his back yard. The hull used #3 rebar and wire mesh then sprayed on concrete. About 1 1/4" thick. He launched it to finish in the water. But like most of his projects he never finished it. He sold it and the new owner did. It did well in the ocean.

    My cousin was a General Contractor in NW Iowa. Mostly residential. He built all of his basements using wood framing and plywood. I thought he was crazy. But its a proven thing.

  2. Like many foods from other countries you need to know what is what. All Sushi is not raw.

    Crab and shrimp are usually cooked but served cold, eel is BBQ'd, smoked salmon, most good restaurants will list "cooked" selections.

    If you don't like rice get Sashimi, no rice just fish, crab, squid, octopus thinly sliced.

    As to eating something raw I've seen some steak being eaten that was still moving!! Or steak tar tar?

  3. I have a DPMS AR-10 in 308. It was very pressure sensitive and over powered the bolt, causing jambs. Installed an adjustable gas block and good to go.

  4. There are or were some videos on YouTube with SASS shooters competing against 3 gun shooters. First everyone shot what they were used too. About even. Then they switched guns. and the SASS shooters shooting 3 gun whipped them bad. Of course the 3 gun people had never shot our type of guns.

    Would you go to court, or a job interview, or a meeting with the Governor or President looking like you had just spent 12 hours bucking hay in the Permian Basin in August? No?  Why not?

    Different situation. An interview you should dress appropriately for the job you're trying to get. It's not about tradition or respect. But an expectation of who you are and that you understand whats needed to work somewhere.

    I am trying not to offend. I've designed Catholic Churches. During the process I was always asking questions about the why's, or traditions, or religious connotations. I ask about this trying to understand.  My biggest issue is trying to understand how what is written by man becomes an extension of "Gods" word!

  6. So would Jesus deny sharing his word with someone who was dressed inappropriately?

    Reading the reason why's it's clear they were written to make women subservient to men. If men wear a head covering they are violating a rule!

  7. 1st Century adaptations.  As an Architect I did a historical restoration and seismic upgrade to the Catholic Cathedral here in Reno. It was built in 1909 and burned down in 1914. So when we relocated the candles it was decided, by the church, that the fire risk in an un-sprinklered building was a thing. Think Notre Dame.

    So they make an arrangement that looks like rows of candles. And the individual candles/lights light up when touched. Donation box was located below.

    What are we doing right now if not engaging in and listening to discussion and commenting on it?

    It's a super small percentage of the total TG's.  And whats to discuss ROC is making the decisions

  9. As a TG I remember many, many posts and many, many comments every time someone brought up how to get the TG"S to vote without meeting.

    Zoom this, TV that, ballots.

    The big issue everyone felt they needed to be able to listen to the discussion and be able to comment on it.  Impossible.

    I don't remember exactly but I think it was around 2015 that a vote was taken by the TG's.

  10. I'm reading the TG's are eliminated. The 26,000 members can now submit rules, comment on a proposed rule change, and vote on the proposed change?


    We can't get a few hundred TG's to meet or vote and this is better because?
