  1. …to a show my father wanted to watch. And as long as I was there, had to adjust the antenna.
  2. They used to. You can find it on ebay Here’s what they have now. https://www.amazon.com/Old-Spice-Swagger-Soap-Pack/dp/B086SHJGNZ/ref=mp_s_a_1_5?adgrpid=56350985672&hvadid=580871705246&hvdev=m&hvlocphy=1020414&hvnetw=g&hvqmt=e&hvrand=9752642587651237574&hvtargid=kwd-297032488448&hydadcr=25000_13543009&keywords=old+spice+soap+on+a+rope&qid=1702839856&sr=8-5
  3. Folks at the Munich Conference in 1938 and other isolationists felt similarly. Look how that turned out.
  4. Looks like a certain congresswoman from New York…
  5. There’s some cool stuff in there, but the post is from 2009.
  6. That’s not beer. It’s a child water bottle. Seriously.
  7. I’m well acquainted with them. A skill scoffed at originally, but valued many years later when refinishing the floors of my house.
  8. Could be. Perhaps it’s simpler than that, and the pic was just posed for the gag.
  9. If you hand a long gun to someone who’s never held one before, they rarely know where their hands go and which eye to use. I’ve seen that a lot with young scouts.
  10. Excellent movie. Natalie Portman was awesome at a very early age. https://m.imdb.com/title/tt0110413/?ref_=nm_flmg_t_69_act
  11. Back then I was living in NYC on $12,000/yr. That wasn’t much, but it wasn’t a struggle either. It’s all relative.
  12. Ummm, yeah…you live in a galaxy far, far away from mine. Seriously, I’m happy for you.
  13. I’m still stuck on the idea your wife and ex-wife alone in a car. I can’t wrap my head around that scenario in my world as a fatality would have occurred.
  14. I just keep 18 and 19mm sockets handy at home for my Jeep. 19mm with the cap, 18 without. For traveling, a cap that fell off makes a dandy shim to keep with the wrench that came with the car.
  15. We were living on the Marine air station at Iwakuni in May of 1959. On May Day that year, a bunch of commies rioted at the base entrance, so the base fire department turned the hoses on them. Thus ended the riot. Seems we could resurrect that tactic for some of today’s antics.
  16. That's a nice looking car for the era. I wonder how many could afford to buy one? Check out the gallery on this link: https://en.avtoclassika.com/carmarket/36/
  17. I’m sure they’re heavily taxed too, which makes the government addicted to the revenue. The dirty little secret in this country is the taxes collected on tobacco, which they say is to defray the cost of treating smoking related illnesses, are mostly diverted for general spending. Years ago the states sued the tobacco companies to “recover” health expenditures. Each state received several billion dollars. Audits later showed that the state of Missouri only spent 6 hundred thousand dollars on health initiatives, while the rest of their 2 billion settlement went to general revenue. That was just one example. I'm sure most states did the same. The hypocrites can’t afford to have anyone quit smoking.
  18. Never heard of, or seen them. In the US, they looked like this:
