    Absolutely. There's a movie, many years back. THE OTHER SIDE OF THE MOUNTAIN. There's these two girls riding in a Jeep. Got stuck. The driver is out of the Jeep trying to get it unstuck - dig it out or jack it up, I don't recall what was needed, it's been a while - while the other girl just sat there in the passenger seat with her shoulder harness on.


    And these two guys come by, and they help the driver get the Jeep out of whatever is stuck in, while the other girl doesn't do anything but sit in the Jeep.


    That night, in the bar, the two guys are telling the story of this, and about how the one girl not only didn't get out and help, but she didn't even get her fat ass out of the Jeep so it was a little lighter and easier to move.


    And while they are telling this story, the two girls come into bar. The Jeep driver is pushing the other girl in her wheelchair. The second girl had been a downhill skier, and she broke her back and was a paraplegic. But sitting in the Jeep seat with her shoulder harness on, there did not appear to be anything wrong with her.

    If he can still stand on his own hind legs, he can at least hold the kid's hand.

    Myself: Definitely influenced and therefore manipulated by different kind of media. 

    There's a difference between informed, influenced, and manipulated. If you inform yourself from different sources that aren't just parroting the same story, and are actually thinking about the information, not just believing everything you read without question, you're probably not being manipulated.

    It's now a joke between us. Anytime I go to HD, she'll ask me to pick up some metric washers.

    I don't know about that, as off size as most washers seem to be, I think they're selling Metric washers LABELED as SAE.:wacko:

    Circle square, board stretcher, wood welder, 8/16 wrench, the apprentice is smart if they bring you a 1/2”, tube of elbow grease, conduit stretcher, left hand screwdriver, wire stretcher”doesn’t work if your on a farm” , bag of amps or ohms, replacement bubble for the level. That’s about all I can remember 


    While in an 81mm mortar platoon, we sent newbies to the armory for a baseplate jack. In the Air Wing, sending them to the Tool Room for 100 feet of flightline or a bucket of propwash was common.

    In the gas stove thread someone did the OH!!!!,EVS!!! bit.

    Same in the gas furnace thread.

    A post on this thread mentioned electric power and as predictable as sunrise, EVs get trotted out.


    Seems as if any mention of electricity in any way causes 'splody heads about EVs.



    The ONLY reason that EVs get mentioned is because they are already overloading the Grid in some places. NOBODY but YOU gives a crap about them EXCEPT that they, and now stoves and water heater are being pushed on us.

    Is it at all possible for there to be a mention of electricity without someone doing the "OHMYGAWD!!! ELECTRIC VEHICLES!!!!"?  

    This isn't a thread about electric vehicles. it's about people making decisions that the rest of us are going to have to live with. 

    The Grid is ALREADY overloaded, partly because of electric vehicles. NOW, "they" want it overloaded even more. Nobody really CARES about electric vehicles. It's the cumulative effect that they have on those of us who don't want or need them, along with everything else that we're being pushed toward.

    That's why we were required to put our name on ours. Pilot complained that there was a strange noise in the nose wheel. Found a mini mag up there. From an A&P 300 miles away.


    FAA had a talk with him. They don't like it when you leave tools inside the aircraft.

    Automotive work is one thing. Aviation is quite another. A misplaced tool can take an A/C right out of the sky. Most times, cars are already on the ground. 

    Two side notes:

    (1) In Naval Aviation, and I presume Army and Air Force, Every tool box has a specific number, and must be checked out of the Tool Room. Further, each tool in the box has IT'S own number. When any job is finished, the tech inventories his tool box, and then a Quality Assurance Inspector does it again. Only when all tools are present can a job be signed off. The tool box will also be inventoried by the Tool Room guy when it's returned. A lost tool can be cause to shut down Flight Ops until it's found.  

    (2) A couple years ago, I found myself with a flat on my work truck, (Freightliner). I found a metal "something" in the tire, but I couldn't get it out. When the Tire Guy showed up and dismounted the tire, it proved to be half of a slip joint plier! Neither one of us could figure out HOW it got into the tire.

    Wapakoneta is in Ohio? Who knew? :P So that would mean the other astronaut should have the state flag for New Jersey on his shoulder?

    Or, since the moon isn't shown and the size of the earth, it could also be John Glenn, Jim Lovell or Donn Eiselle, who beat Neil into space. All from Ohio. There are a slew of astronauts from Ohio.

    Just goes to show what lengths people will go to get out of this state! (there, I beat someone to it!)

    Too true. I just remember seeing this somewhere else and that it's supposed to be Armstrong. 

    And growing up in Ohio was one of the reasons I now live in Arizona. I wanted out so much I enlisted in the Marine Corps.
