  1. That was giant raindrops falling to Earth at a 91 degree angle. We did not get nearly the amount of damage I thought we would, nothing like what you got up by you. There was relatively little to clean up in the 22 lawns I cut today. A few big limbs on a couple of properties was about it. I saw some large limbs down on other properties, but not trees down. If you heard a freight train in your back yard, that was probably a MB. When we had a MB here in 2002 (I think), it was frightening, like nothing I'd ever heard or seen. I took my 5 yo son to the basement. The duration was maybe 10 minutes.
  2. We were hit pretty hard too. I thought it was another micro-burst (mini tornado). All was quiet, then I hear a racket on my roof. At first I thought it was hail, but was black walnuts blown onto roof from a tree fifteen feet away. Rain was actually going sideways. Very surprised we didn't lose power
  3. No 3 pt hitch. Deal breaker.
  4. I have four sheepdogs, a wolf and three sheep for neighbors.
  5. In this instance, I guess, Janis Joplin was right. Freedom is just another word for nothing left to loose. It is the fear of loosing what few good things we have that ties us to the bad things that hold us down. It took courage to move away for the sake of your principles. In this day and age, where money tops all, we live in a nation of mostly unprincipled people. Always remember that freedom is not free, there is always some cost, financial, social, etc.. associated with it.
  6. That's what I have on the truck now. I've never got stuck with them, and they are very quiet for a truck tire, but they did not impress me last winter. Also, they don't seem to grab dry road all that well, I will burn rubber every time I step on it to pull out on to a busy road.
  7. Do you know which ones? There seems to be a half dozen different grabber models ranging from knobby to highway treads.
  8. Can anyone recommend a mud and snow rated truck tire that has a good balance between performance and road noise.
  9. The original Magnificent seven were ronin samurai, and also Japanese. Which, I guess, is implicit. The Seven Samurai is one of the most copied stories ever.
  10. It's like Bullet. Steve McQueen makes that movie, well, the Mustang too, but mostly McQueen. There is nothing, NOTHING that can be done to that movie that will make it better. The only reason that flick would get remade is because Ford backed it to sell more Mustangs. It would not be an improvement. The entire movie would be a long entertaining advertisement with a good bit of wokeness in it.
  11. Silly goose, that was a sequel, not a remake. But, it was a great movie. Maybe they should remake it with the Jewish mafia or black mafia.
  12. Really had to think about this one. Classic successful beloved movies generally do not need to be remade unless some progressive leftard wants to use it as a vehicle to promote an agenda. My contributions are... The Fly. Scarface, and lastly (on the fence with this one) The Jackal. My list of movies that should have been left the fuck alone instead of appropriated as vehicles for progressive propaganda is longer.
  13. It appears to me that the timing is screwed up. (A)Try a lighter BCG, (B) snip off a coil or two from the buffer spring, (C) use a lighter buffer. The dwell time, the amount of time the gasses push BCG back and the next round is stripped off and chambered is out of whack. Although pressure is higher in short gas systems, the amount of time the pressure is applied is shorter, so all the moving parts need to be light enough to get pushed back into the extension all the way. Just for kicks, double check the gas system and make sure there are no leaks. Look for carbon build up. Along those lines, it's also possible the gas block is misaligned, restricting full pressure to the rest of the system. EDIT: You can try to diagnose short stroking by loading a single round. If the bolt does not hold open, the BCG is not traveling far enough back to get caught in the catch.
  14. Don't count your chickens until the midterm elections have hatched. Things could go either way. In any event, nobody is going to sell the whatever they grossly over paid for unless they are strapped for cash. They've already missed the boat. That is, unless there is a second post midterm boat.
