I'm pretty bummed the photo thread in the non-riding photo/video section is gone. Only thread I actually cared about. Bikeguide already sucked and it just got buried. I think it may be time to waste my internet time elsewhere.

Also, just noticed my post count dropped from over 1000 to 647. Dumb thing for me to be kind of upset about.

People who stopped coming to dig at our trails over a year ago are complaining that we don't dig anything small enough for them to enjoy. Three of us have spent the last three months building 'the girl line' for them, they all knew we that we are building it for them and none of the them have come to help.

I want to chop people's fucking heads off with my new lidl shovel. Dry guys

^Can't wait to start digging!

Went and checked out the trails yesterday and noticed they got the tarps off already. Going to need a week of sunny, warm and windy days to dry things up though. A bit sloppy out there right now.

I keep tossing around the idea of getting a bike again. Goliath has one for sale right now in the Canada classifieds for a pretty dang good deal (if what I remember from BMX part value is still accurate). But I don't have anyone to ride with anymore.

My (limited) time spent at the trails was always a good time. Although now that I'm old enough to buy booze and I don't need to pedal an hour across town to get to the trails might make it that much better.

We've got three take offs to build and our new hip line will be done for summer. Someone's optimistically mentioned taking the bikes up there this weekend but the tarps have been on since October and it's likely they're sloppy too!

I had a couple parking infractions from San Francisco the other week. I went to pay them online and nothing. Called and there is no record of that ticket or any for my license plate. I like to think it was because the meter maid couldn't figure out what car it was as all the boxes for make model are blank.

i think states decriminalizing/legalizing marijuana is all a ploy for the federal government to come in one day and go on a spree of raids and confiscations in order to seize property and possessions to generate revenue. colorado (and the states that follow) will generate a whole bunch of revenue for now, and then the federal government will come through and take theirs in one foul swoop. win-win for big government.

Man, I was riding the other day and toothbonked a rail but shit went wrong and I ate shit. I didn't hit my head and I was wearing my helmet at any rate. All the same I saw those little flashy floaters like neurons dying or something. I've had this real shitty headache and I made a quick correlation to that. The real responsibilities probably lay with being awake right now and subsisting on 6ish hours of sleep the last couple weeks. That, or not drinking coffee Sunday or Monday and having a couple strong ones today.

Same here with the house. It's a shame that the two newest help to buy initiatives won't really be any use if you plan to buy by the end of the year.

Like I menioned, I recorded fuck all of the week long trip. Most of the time was spent on the beach drinking so I didn't feel like carrying around a backpack for my camera and shit just for me to probably lose it along the way. So I had like 5 minutes of video from our hotel that I thought would be neat to throw together. There's more booty in this one (http://instagram.com/p/0wWAQOGhN_/) if you guys wanna cringe some more.

If you guys have snapchat, that Ultimate Music Fest or whatever is where I was at.

One of the better things I think about being vegetarian is when you burp up food. Like I can do that and its a piece of onion from a burrito. That's cool, its the same as when I swallowed it. Doing that with some partially masticated beef? NO.
Title: Re: New Random Thoughts Thread

How is it any different? Unless you swallow everything whole now that you're a self-righteous vego.
Title: Re: New Random Thoughts Thread
Post by: Prodigal Son on March 29, 2015, 12:01:30 AM
I can't be completely sure, but I fear the release of a piece of pork a couple hours by way of a belch is much different than the vegetable component of the burrito I ate. I could be wrong, but my assumption is the digestive process affects meat much differently than it does vegetables epidermal layers. You've shit out corn and berries right? You remember the reason for that right?
Title: Re: New Random Thoughts Thread
Post by: Alex. on March 29, 2015, 12:28:46 AM
Why are chunks of food flying out when you burp?

I was on a geology trip, looking at shit in the abandoned mines of Northern Nevada and staying in the shit holes like that dork that was stoked on his mustang and wearing ambercormbie(I forget his moniker). I had my clothes, food, and laptop in my bag slumming it in some shitty casino when a security guard kicked my bag exploding one of those tetrapak containers that soy milk comes in. I dried it all out in front of a fan and for weeks when the fan would kick on little clouds of soy milk powder would blow out.

Don't you mean sarcastic. Actually most things can be compared, but doesn't mean they should be. For example, a whale and a mouse, or a car and a plane. In this case a fracture and a bruise.

Im sure if you broke your heel it would be as bad, if not worse than fracturing a collarbone on your dominant hand. Sure with a fractured collarbone it maybe hard to eat, sleep and wipe your ass, but using crutches to get around everywhere would suck. Id rather use my non dominant hand for my daily routine, rather than drastically loose mobility. 

All injuries suck, but by saying yours was worse when people are expressing pain makes you a dick.

Definitely not. We're all going to die at some point. Better to go out doing something you enjoy rather than being so depressed you don't see any other option other than taking your own life.

Both were whitewater kayakers. First dude was out after a week of solid heavy rain here in Ireland and the higher water hid some nasty tree roots. They just found him upside down in his kayak after noticing him missing and tried to resuscitate but he was gone already.

Very similar with the second guy as the group noticed him missing and found his kayak capsized with him in it. I believe he had his arm stuck in a rock.

Both in an outdoor recreation course and they're all very experienced kayakers and everyone knows CPR so it's not like it was a group of novices out.

Sucks cause they had just held a memorial 'activity day' for the first dude.

I work full time and do my masters after-hours/weekends. Government gives us 2 weeks paternity leave paid at the minimum wage and I also negotiated extra time with my employer directly.

Been there. I still have a couple years left to pay off the GTI and not having that nice paying job kinda blows when the payment is due but I definitely enjoy having the car and also enjoying being home now. Will be a sweet day when it's paid off, kinda wish I would've done a longer financing option now but it is it what it is.
Title: Re: New Random Thoughts Thread
Post by: Cole on May 11, 2015, 09:30:40 PM
Just makes me feel a bit silly for buying a brand new car, and not being able to play with it all the time. But, like you said, can't wait for it to be paid off. I ended up going with 6 years since my finance rate was 0.99% and it didn't make much difference in interest between a shorter term and a longer term. What was yours?

The other thing I'm considering is putting off school for another year, then I can for sure have it paid off, be able to pay for school up front and hopefully still have a bunch of money saved up so I won't need to work. Although I'm already wanting to change my major, so we'll see if I can do that and still defer my acceptance for a year.

Also, fuck living out of hotels. Getting so tired of not being able to cook my own meals. I've put on about 40 pounds since August from constantly eating out. Although, the amount of beer I've been consuming probably doesn't help.

lmao. This was my life for 3 years! Funny to someone else on here going through the same thing. It's cool for a while but like you said, it's such a pain to actually make your own food so you just go for the easy option and eat out. And then you're bored as fuck sitting in a hotel night after night so you just booze it up to make shit a little entertaining. It's definitely cool for a while but it takes its toll on ya'.
Title: Re: New Random Thoughts Thread
Post by: Cole on May 11, 2015, 10:09:13 PM
Billy, kind of, still a reservist, but given that I'm on the road so much, I don't nearly make the commitment I used to (1 or 2 evenings a week, and up to 3 weekends a month) now I'm lucky if I show up for one evening a month. However, I am in a bit better shape than I have been in recent years despite the weight gain. Stopped smoking so my lungs are feeling a lot better and my cardio is getting back up to what I feel it should be.

Alex, no shit eh? Last year I was working with 2 other guys and we made a genuine effort to have 3 or 4 "home cooked" meals a week. If the hotel had a barbecue, we'd grill up some meat, make a salad and have some apps while we were cooking. We'd also have a few beers during the process. Luckily my job involves a lot of walking, so I don't think I've put on the weight I should be putting on. The problem right now is that my coworker and I have a bit more experience than the other guys in our department (or we may just be slightly more dependable, pick one) so we got put onto a bit of a different project where the work has to be done a bit more precisely, so we spend about 10 hours in the field each day, then another 4 at the hotel going over the data we collect, processing it and then preparing for the next day so time is also a factor in that.
Title: Re: New Random Thoughts Thread
Post by: ginger on May 11, 2015, 11:12:00 PM
You guys do know that there are healthy take out options, right? Also, vodak with soda water instead of beer when you travel. Makes all the difference to weight gain.

Lastly, I haven't flamed Cole for a while; 40 pounds is heaps you fat fuck. I put on about 8 kg last time I had a lot of travel, have lost 10 kg since January.

Haha, healthy options for take out... Yeah, if you want to eat at a Subway or Pita Pit every day. Not a clear spirits kind of guy, especially with the amount of micro breweries around the places we work in. Also, good on ya for losing weight ginger. However, what's a lot of travel to you? I've worked in 5 different provinces in less than 10 months, driving back and forth. My last big trip was driving 3700 km non-stop. I seriously doubt you put in a 90 hour week consistently with around 20 hours of driving each week. When you do, let me know how difficult it is to live a perfectly healthy lifestyle. I've quit smoking, so the rest of the healthiness will come eventually.

However, I feel like coming from about 150 pounds at around 6 feet tall, and going to about 190 is more like filling out, but ok.

Post by: ginger on May 12, 2015, 06:22:43 PM
Filling out is putting on muscle, gaining 40 pounds is just being fat.
Extensive travel for me is back to back conferences for a month and an uncapped credit card. Needless to say, I used to eat and drink whatever the fuck I wanted. Probably 60 hour weeks, not including catch up work in hotels to do emails and transit times between conferences.

I don't know, the cognitive behavioral therapy sessions I was going to, my issue is that I just identify everything I do as a failure. I can't take that the things I want to achieve and wish the best for myself are the things I fail at. It eats me up inside and I would rather end it.

I need to get my insurance to approve more sessions. I still fight these very debilitating episodes a couple times a week.

I have 3 approved sessions with my neuropsychologist this summer. Very interested in doing another FSIQ and comparing my shit now to two years ago.

I pretty much did that as an experiment nearly 2 months ago. Packed up my shit on a bicycle and hit the road. Didn't have any maps or plans except head south. Chilling the fuck out now in  Sardinia.

Surviving on 5 a day average.  I spend a bit more on beer though. I eat wild fruit and do a bit of fishing and forraging for herbs to cook with. Sleeping on the beach and exploring crazy places. Wash in the sea or find a Tinder chick and shack up for a night.

Caught a lobster in shallow water yesterday for dinner. Trying to get over my fear of snakes and catch one to try and cook.

Id make a rad as fuck homeless person. I've always wondered why irish people who become homeless stay in that rainy country. I sleep in a tent or on a sleeping pad when it's too hot. 

I do miss home though but my life wasn't fucked before I left.

I remember my medical bills when I smashed my face into the concrete and broke my jaw, skull, knocked out a ton of teeth and broke my hand a few years ago at the part were up to something like $250k+ I got sent the bill because the hospital didn't understand me when I said my insurance policy number with tricare was my SSN. I kept giving them the number and they just thought I was confused because of the concussion.

Tricare is one of the biggest things from the military I will miss when I'm out next year.

Then really it doesn't matter either way if the difference is imperceptible. I appreciate that this wouldn't help you, but I know your belief about your own mind is untrue, even if you don't. I know my mind exists, so I can conclude that your mind can't be the only thing in existence.


The endurance of solipsism is a perfect example of how people can get stuck on the outcome of a logical argument, even when the conclusion is relatively absurd. I feel quite happy to disregard the idea on the simple basis that there are many things in the world that I don't understand at all. If the only thing I can verify the existence of is my own thoughts, then I struggle to see how I could think up things that no amount of those same thoughts can actually comprehend. The only way for that to be possible would be if there was a duality of mind/another strata of thought. Using solipsistic reasoning, there's equally no reason to believe in the other strata of thought, as there's no way to comprehensively verify it. It's always struck me as quite self-defeating.

often though about this , but what if no one else really exists what if im the only person who is actually real and everything else is some kind of illusion my mind has made up?

could be true  :o


Then really it doesn't matter either way if the difference is imperceptible. I appreciate that this wouldn't help you, but I know your belief about your own mind is untrue, even if you don't. I know my mind exists, so I can conclude that your mind can't be the only thing in existence.


The endurance of solipsism is a perfect example of how people can get stuck on the outcome of a logical argument, even when the conclusion is relatively absurd. I feel quite happy to disregard the idea on the simple basis that there are many things in the world that I don't understand at all. If the only thing I can verify the existence of is my own thoughts, then I struggle to see how I could think up things that no amount of those same thoughts can actually comprehend. The only way for that to be possible would be if there was a duality of mind/another strata of thought. Using solipsistic reasoning, there's equally no reason to believe in the other strata of thought, as there's no way to comprehensively verify it. It's always struck me as quite self-defeating.


I do see what your saying, but it has always struck me when reading Descarts meditations is that he does not specifically care about the outcome, it is more of a line of thinking, in his first mediation he doubts everything around him, including himself, and then finally coming to the conclusion that we must exist, because of these very thoughts. I think the outcome of this thinking is neither here nor there for him, rather just the logical conclusion of his previous work. Regarding Soplipsim in general, I have always liked Bertrand Russel's view in that why would the Soliphsist every try to convince anyone else of their argument, since it does not matter if you are the only person to exist. It has always seemed to me as a moot point in philosophy with people who argue for it being answered with a 'so what?' at the logical conclusion of their argument.

To play the devils advocate regarding your idea of 'strata thought', if you start from the position of the Sophalist, who believes only his mind exists, these things which cannot be conjured up by your own mind must point to another being rather than disproving it.

You've either just rephrased my point, or  I don't understand what you're getting at here. The pointing to another being is the collapse of the solipsistic position. I'm no expert on philosophy, but I wouldn't consider Descartes to be working within the same frame as the solipsist, even if there are parallels in some of their conclusions. Descartes was working on the basis that there is a truth to an external reality, and how exactly one would go about proving it. The solipsist jumps on that train of thought and slams the brakes on.

Yes, your right. It has been a while since I studied philosophy, confused between solipsism and Descarts.

I went riding last night for the first time post vasectomy and it was my hope that could be true about my testicles. Much like the bone that built up the calcium callus, so too would the balls become hard bastards that could withstand a rail impact or what have you.

So during a night of heavy drinking me and my new Finnish friend each  pull a girl and they happen to be best friends. So fuck it we decide to go on a 'double date' type thing the next day.

Long story short, we rented tandem kayaks, hungover Mr Finland diarrhea shits himself everywhere with the girl in the back and decided the only course of action is to sink the boat to try hide his shame.

She's not interested anymore and took her friend with her but I'm not even mad cause it was the funniest thing I've ever seen.

Haha, I'm fucking poor. Looking at 175k for small places with large backyards. The places we've been checking out are not in really nice neighborhoods with good school districts. Our main focus is a yard for our basset hound and room enough for a medium sized greenhouse. Its a hard thing to find because of people outright buying them with cash.

I don't know how to determine a mean for them around me. There are million dollar homes on one side of the street and 175-200 on the other block. I fucking hate sorting through all the condos, the community type houses, and everything that anyone that is over the age of 50 wouldn't live in.

Does that mean your jizz goes down the drain easier when you jerk it in the shower? Like you know how when you go to wash it down and the super chunky sperm part gets stuck to your foot? Does that go away?

Because if it does, I will get a v tomorrow.

Just wank more. Obly becomes chunky if you dont ejaculate for a few days

If you wash it off with warm/hot water, it will lump up and get sticky. Use colder water to wash it down the drain or off your face.

labor laws suck. I have carpal tunnel syndrome in both wrists and just pop ibuprofens throughout the day. I recommend whiskey.

I'm so fucking busy.

Our baby girl is due on Sep 1st, so we're getting the house ready. Installing bamboo floors, switching rooms around, then making a bedroom into the nursery. Also painting two rooms. Then all the baby shopping, planning, classes, etc.

I need to get some small to medium sized jobs done on my Golf, XR400, and the 4runner. I really hope to have it all done this summer but the house takes priority.

Bike riding has turned into a weekly occurrence at best.

On the upside, we CANNOT WAIT to see our baby girl and hold her. Call me a pussy/softie/whatever you want, we're already in love with this tiny human. The new job this year is going well, 8 hours goes by quickly when we design/fab/sell an awesome product and the company is great.

No, I chose a woman who loves being active and healthy. She won't stop running, hiking, karate, dog walks, swimming, etc until she is physically unable to do them.

Women who get fat and lazy after kids are just fat and lazy women who use kids as an excuse.

It couldn't have gone much better/worse. We got him fucked up during the three hour drive to the festival and put him in a yellow dress. He got rowdy as fuck and wandered off, we couldn't find him for four hours and when we did manage to get to him he was being dragged out in a headlock by two meathead security guards and kicked out. Apparently he was kicking off with people and when they tried to calm him down he picked up a wooden pallet and threw it at the security!

Four hours at his own stag do! We were off our heads by then so two of the lads chilled out then drove him all the way home and came back in time for DJ EZ at gone midnight. Success.

Kind of late but the whole Rachel Dolezal scandal is the most retarded thing to happen to the media for a while. You oust a lady who was doing good work because she lied about being black? Fuck... who gives a shit. Identity and race is a pretty complex thing.

There are plenty of people of every race pretending to be one another. So many white dudes who claim to be black or part native, Jews passing off as not Jews. A bunch of inbetweeners when it comes to race and I'm not even talking about mixed folks.

Sure it's terrible she lied about being black but if thats what she truly feels inside and some people accept her as that, who is anyone to call her out on that. It's not like she did her blackface routine when she went to work. The way I see if she's willing to live the life of being considered a black woman and accept the disadvantages and advantages that come with that then let her be.

Cause to her own self she ain't white so that wouldn't make sense. This lil miss nobody in nobody USA had her shit blown up on national news. There wasn't even some catalyst of 'questionable ethics', it was her parents calling someone in the news department and they ran with it cause its an interesting story. Her actions speak much louder than what little lie she ever told. All it is a mainstream media tabloid. It gets attention, there is no real reason for it, there is no substance. They threw under the bus what I perceive as a decent lady and her life's work just cause there was a single weak link in her. They drilled that single weak link until it broke everything.

You can still legally view those houses, and if you put in an interest and the sale fall through then you might be next in line, and in a position to offer slightly less.

I just completed on my first house 3 weeks ago, feels good. But was definitely a lot of hassle - took 3 months from offer to completion, and we had to chase the solicitors and bank quite a bit. BUt its definitely worth it

Fuck, I'll make less than $15k this year including my school grants. Working a 3/4 time job to pay the bills and make it through school. My parents could have bought a house doing the same thing in their day. If you are bitching about making more than 40k a year and life being a struggle you can go fuck yourself.

Again, I not only support myself and my fiance, but I also help support my parents. If they didn't rely on me I'd be fine at 40k a year.

When you make six figures you get no sympathy.

I don't make six figures. with my pay cut reversed I'm at $65,000 again.

Are you salaried? If you're not making overtime, 50k would have been a hard fucking wage to live on.

I'm on salary. 50K in west houston isn't that bad if you're modest

That's crazy, I can't fathom that London is cheap by any means. I imagine the exact opposite. 155k (pound to USD conversion) is a really nice salary but some of the execs in my wife's have spouses who make equal amounts, so somewhere in the 200k and they aren't driving R8s or living in the nicest part of my region.

Nah. 40K isn't hard to live on anywhere in the US unless you have a 20K per year coke habit. I live in San Diego which has a median house value 80K higher than LA. I'm comfortable but that simply means I live with roommates, eat a few times a day, and can pay for luxuries like a cell phone and internet access. Americans in general are underpayed, but also think they need to keep up with the Kardashians. An extra 25k a year in my pocket would change a lot in my life, but I'd be equally as happy living the exact same lifestyle for the next 5-7 years and banking it all.

This is basically me right now. I was unemployed for the past year and a half while finishing up school and I recently got a job making roughly 40-50k a year. I'm so used to having almost no money and living cheap that I've just continued to do so. I haven't bought a car or the latest and greatest phone and I still don't go out to eat. I'm just sitting back and watching the money roll in.

As a UK resident I don't really get the whole medical thing in the US, but what would happen if someone had a baby but was unemployed / in debt already and just couldn't pay? Would you be taken to court / car repossessed etc?
Title: Re: New Random Thoughts Thread
Post by: Aesop Rock on September 28, 2015, 12:59:15 PM
They would send the bill to a collection agency, who would harass you nonstop via calls, mail, etc. The debt would go on your credit report, which employers CAN reference in the hiring process. So lets say your potential employer overlooks it but they're far enough that you need a vehicle to commute. Good luck trying to get that car loan you need so you can have a vehicle to go to a job to pay off your debt. It's a fucked system.

If I press on the very bottom right rib, directly on my side, it's kinda tender but it feels more like a muscle issue. Not sure what I could've done in my sleep to have caused this but really don't want to spend another $1000 at the hospital just to get some muscle relaxers or something. Pisssss.

Sweden is a largely homogenous society with a far-right anti immigration party that has recently gained a strong following. What's happening in Sweden is not massively different to the rest of Europe, it's just that party are creating a scene about it.

The reality is that The West (mostly 'Murica, UK and others also contributing) is continuing to fuck things up in the middle east resulting in a huge surge of immigrants fleeing for their lives. These aren't people who are looking for a better life, these are previously middle-class comfortable families with no choice but to flee.

A minority of economic immigrants have seized this opportunity to abuse the generosity of Europe's support system and migrate at the same time, which has been picked up on by the right wing media and blown out of proportion.

A lot of Europe has responded with impressive empathy, but the system is not sustainable if we continue to see the same influx of migrants. What needs to happen is we stop bombing and start talking, and solve the problem at source. I don't see that happening soon if the American press is currently vilifying the people we should be supporting.

So fuck you.

(http://i.imgur.com/ieVApGO.jpg)

there are a lot of videos showing migrants saying they're going to out-breed europeans, and turn europe islamic. There were a lot of them before the 'crisis' struck. Do you think those guys just changed their minds?

I've been following this for at least five years now.  This 'refugee crisis' was inevitable. Absolutely no question about it. Just like ISIS was inevitable.  Knowing this, the west supported/created them/the situation anyways.  Why?

people saying what's happening isn't an "invasion" is absurd.  Sure it's happening alongside an actual refugee situation, but it's still happening. There are videos of migrants saying just that. People like me knew it was coming and called out a lot of the how/why years ago, it was so obvious.  So why is it being allowed to happen?  why was 9/11 and a whole bunch of other horrible shit allowed to happen?

you're not getting brownie points for "sticking up" for the actual refugees by ignoring the past few years of geopolitics/war/human nature/religious fanaticism, you're being a fucking retard towing the government line. "anything bad that happens is a total surprise! we certainly haven't been planning for/expecting/instigating it for decades! Anybody who predicted this or who speaks out against it is a horrible insensitive racist..."

Where has that figured come from? There are an estimated 85,000 rape cases per year in the UK, so ~1.7 million in the last 20 years. 1400 is a drop in the ocean compared to how much we rape each other.

some tin foil shit about predicting this all

So what? Anyone with sense could see the problem manifesting, and anyone with sense knows its all interlinked. I'm not arguing against that, am I?

But if you think it's an "invasion" then you're fucking brainwashed. A vocal minority may have some pie in the sky plan to islamise Europe but the reality is most just want to live somewhere safe, preferably their home country but that's not feasible right now

Intelligence sources say French border closed out of concern #ISIL may have infiltrated migrants flooding Europe. Recent intel warned of it.

140+ dead across 6+ locations. hundreds of videos from the past couple years of guys declaring their desire to carry out such acts.

invasion
1. The act of invading, especially the entrance of an armed force into a territory to conquer.
2. The entry into bodily tissue and subsequent proliferation of an injurious entity, such as a pathogen or tumor.
3. An intrusion or encroachment

they've been using the word "conquer" in videos talking about their race and their religion replacing others. Clearly some are armed, with blatant injurious intent.
How many more incidents like would it take for you to acknowledge an invasion is taking place?

again, there is an actual, real refugee situation taking place, but you're blind if you think others aren't using it as cover for by-definition invasion-criteria-meeting plans.

It's unfortunate to dispute semantics on this. I think the idea of invasion is something like wwii Germany you know? A subversive micro invasion isn't on the worlds mind when something like 'Muslim Invasion' is said. 1:4 in the world is Islamic and to say an invasion specific to them consists of several thousand, well the disparity is in the numbers.

The argument doesn't make any sense. The two things being compared are completely different and unrelated. It makes it seem as though there is a housing shortage and the homeless vets are competing with the refugees for a limited number of houses. It ignores the fact that most homeless vets are so because war has fucked with their minds to the point that they can't function in normal society and do all the thing people need to do to maintain a home. Sure, the VA has let a lot of vets down in terms of care for their mental health problems but that has nothing to do with the US taking in refugees from Syria.

I'd been putting in more thought than actually person to person discussion about gun control after the past week of these shootings. I had this small ponderance about the difference between the gun control positions.

There is a hope that we can stop gun homicides. Whether unrealistic or not, the intention is to end them. The other side accepts that all manner of gun homicide are the price to pay for having protection.   
Title: Re: New Random Thoughts Thread

Title: Re: New Random Thoughts Thread
Post by: Cole on December 06, 2015, 12:37:23 PM
It ALWAYS blows my mind when American's use "protection" as an excuse for gun ownership. As you mentioned, Kinchy, it is so few and far between that a bystander has been the one to put an end to an active shooter situation.

But, of course the answer to ending gun violence in the US is to arm every Tom, Dick and Harry. More guns=less gun crime

I'm positive you can pull up an equal amount of shit for instances of either on the googler. For example, when there was a black young man walking through a neighborhood where a neighborhood watch, who didn't live there, was armed and thankfully was able to dispose him after engaging in a fight he was losing.

Then there is the issue of people having a public gunfight.

Are you talking about Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman? Where the latter was charged with second degree murder for shooting an unarmed teenager? And your view is "thankfully was able to dispose him"? "Dispose"? He wasn't litter. I wouldn't say vigilante gun nuts who get done for murder are the best defence of America's gun laws.

Title: Re: New Random Thoughts Thread
Post by: Prodigal Son on December 09, 2015, 11:20:21 PM
My best guess without actually looking it up (I'm not sure what methylated spirits are) is the it is a slightly less polar solvent to the sucrose which makes it a luck less soluble. The ethanol is still a decent solvent but not all the sugar is dissolved and acts as an abrasive agent.
Title: Re: New Random Thoughts Thread
Post by: ginger on December 10, 2015, 12:22:33 AM
Sounds about right. I know other blokes who use rice instead of sugar, but the sugar works quicker.

Methylated spirits, commonly known as metho in this fine country of mine, is denatured alcohol: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denatured_alcohol
People still drink it to get fucked up though, usually mixed with orange juice.

Ethanol with other polar solvents. Fuck, why the hell wouldn't you want to drink an ethanol spirit in the first place? Even low molarity methanol or acetone feels fucked up to get a few drops on your hand. Couldn't imagine that going down the ol gullet.

I've never understood the "super saturated" thing. I use Cu(CuSo4) reference cells for work, and the CuSo4 we put into the halfcell needs to be super saturated. But really, how saturated can something get? You can only put in so much before it doesn't get dissolved by the water.

Ginger, after minimal reflection, it is my professional advice you try a super saturated NaCl and water solution to clean you water pipe.

I've never understood the "super saturated" thing. I use Cu(CuSo4) reference cells for work, and the CuSo4 we put into the halfcell needs to be super saturated. But really, how saturated can something get? You can only put in so much before it doesn't get dissolved by the water.

In the example you used, the CuSO4 is a ligand to the Cu. That's not an ionic or covalent type bonding. It's a complex ion most of the time. The CuSO4 groups around the Cu as much as possible.

In terms of a saturated solution you can alter it through thermodynamic changes. If you increase the energy to the system the solute will dissolve more as most solutions will become more soluble as heat increases. If you had it under an activation energy graph you could see the amplitude and relate that to how much of the solute is in solution.

This followed by rapid cooling to put it in a thermodynamic hole where the energy decrease is faster than it can precipitate out the system can have the same dissolved material at 25c.

Thanks nerd. But that doesn't explain super saturated vs saturated.
Title: Re: New Random Thoughts Thread
Post by: Prodigal Son on December 17, 2015, 03:20:42 PM
Saturation you can think of as the amount of whatever at equilibrium in a solvent. That solution can become super saturated by using the method I was just talking about. Solutes can be more soluble by temperature. If get as much of your chemical to dissolve at a temperature but expect it will go back to a state of equilibrium were the solution can only have so much of the solute at 25c. Instead you do a rapid cooling to go past the energy value to precipitate out, the solute can stay in solution instead of being in saturation it would normally be at in standard conditions.

Post by: Prodigal Son on December 17, 2015, 09:48:30 PM
Maybe this will help you visualize it.

Do you remember making rock candy? So you take your sugar (solute) and add it to boiling water (solvent). If you don't use boiling water, there is only so much sugar that will dissolve into solution. By boiling it, the solubility (how well it dissolves) increases. This greater solubility means there is a saturated solution at 100c. As the solution cools slowly the crystals (precipitate) form large and classical crystal shape. Sometimes crystals won't form, this is what you would find as a super saturated solution in standard conditions.

I haven't paid any attention to it and I don't know anything about ranchers, but I know the family it's supposedly based around have said they want no part of it, and have been publicy stating their intentions to turn themselves in on monday
https://www.oathkeepers.org/the-hammond-family-does/
and the 'takeover' happened something like 60 miles away?  I'm more inclined to believe this is some sort of pr move by somebody trying to provoke a reaction by 'dangerous patriot groups' or whatever...

That said, are the things that these ranchers you hate so much are doing really so much worse than a lot of stuff the feds do with wildlands and public property?
I mean, the family this situation is about has been accused of being TERRORISTS for doing something far less malicious [if at all] and with far less danger/consequences than what their accusers have been doing on a regular basis for decades. Did these guys actually hurt anyone? Was it on purpose? How many times did they do it? Did they have political motivations?   Now ask the same questions of the BLM, actually look up some answers and definitions, and THEN maybe start calling people terrorists.

I don't know what the takeover is actually about, or the people doing it, or what problems people have with ranchers in general, but literally charging the ones in this case as terrorists is 1910s-1940s level evil bullshit. And it's absolutely possible that this 'takeover' is just a stunt for the media to group them in with the militias that they've been trying to distance themselves from.
It's the first time any bit of this case has gotten anywhere near this much attention. Most of the people who see or hear anything about it will just assume the 'militias' and the ranchers are the same/all bad...

This BLM fire reportedly killed more than 80 head of cattle. Put ranchers trying to save their cattle in extreme danger, injured other cattle, burnt homes and structures, burnt fences and power poles and threatened the town of Frenchglen.

Video of BLM starting a fire within 100' of corral filled with cattle (neighbor of the Hammond's)
Days after the Hammond's were sentenced as "Arson Terrorists" the BLM started multiple fires that killed and injured cattle, burned homes, fences and power poles and threatened the town of Frenchglen. This video is an update on the Hammond's arrest by Ammon Bundy. Video shows the BLM burning summer grass ranchers needed to feed cattle. The video also shows a BLM employee starting a fire within 100' of a corral filled with cattle

maybe I'm completely wrong. I haven't read a single article about it since it happened, just saw headlines and a few thumbnails. No clue if it was violent or if they had lawyers at the front... But it stinks of something manipulative.

Neither does 'zee' though. The pronunciation of letters doesn't particularly matter, as there's no real relation to their actual sounds when used in words. The advantage I can see with using 'zed' is that the letters c and z can't be confused when spelling something aloud. 'See'(c) and 'zee'(z) are almost completely indistinguishable when I say them, but I'm not sure how much that has to do with my accent/voice. Is that the case in most American accents as well?


Using 'zer' instead of either would make a lot more sense.

I've been slowly transitioning my bike to be more responsive I think. I always preferred something snappy compared to stable.

Lately I find myself holding them closer to the 25-26 range. I like the straight arm pull feel compared to something wider. You see Chase D ride the insides of his bars a lot and I think there is definitely merit to it all. I also moved them forwards a few degrees. I can't really explain what about I like, it just feels right. At first it came off a bit twitchy but now I don't think I could pull it back. I do ride 20.5 frame so it could be a way to compensate for riding a shorter top tube for so long.

All I need is new a single 1.95 Animal GLH for the rear and I'll be absolute gold. I hate how 2.25 is like the smallest you can get now. And cut my bars down to 25.5. And plastic pedals.

Acceleration is a change in velocity and velocity is a vector. So even with the same magnitude, as long as the direction is changing then the velocity vector is changing. Hence, acceleration is always there.

Tried hugging the corner too close ripping through a parking lot, tire caught the cement post. Instantly ripped the wheel off.

Thank fuck for insurance. If only health insurance was as nice as auto insurance. Isn't that kind of fucked up?

I pay less for my auto insurance monthly and my deductible is still lower on my car. I feel like the odds are much greater of me damaging my car than they are of me needing to go to hospital. Shit's stupid.

Car insurance in Ireland has gone through the roof lately. Got quoted 8200 yearly for my 1.5 Honda. Fuck that.

I do have an urge for a Peugeot 106 Rallye though but they still want 5000 to cover me

For those that don't know, third party coverage doesn't even cover the car. If I hit someone, they're medical bills/ car repair bills are covered. If I put the car in a ditch and write it off, I'm shit out of luck.

It seems to be a combination of private insurance companies being greedy cunts and us regular folk paying for all the insurance scammers that claim 20k plus in whiplash cases. Even my dads premium increased by more than 50% this year and he's 61.

Unfortunately now this causes people to just drive without insurance which is only making the problem worse.

For reference im a student working part time and make less than 11k a year before taxes.  Most of which pays for education.

Such expensive insurance! for us here insurance is not expensive at all, but customs surely are, wich result very expensive cars. For example an old Peugeot 205 average condition sells for 2500/3000 euros, no special options. Someone i know bought a VW Golf 5 for 4600 from Italy few years ago and paid like 9000 for customs.

I started following the Royal Mail advice of writing about the 'name not known at  address' and got a letter back to 'the homeowner' saying that her private pension payments have been suspended and to send her new address to them (which I know) so I fucked it in the bin.

Hahahaha you want to talk about stuck? I've spent the last decade investing all my efforts in growing orchids. I can't stand the dude that owns the greenhouses. I am not making a hyperbole when I saw investing all my time. I have had pictures and plants I've only specialized published in books, magazines, but given credit to the company instead. I'm on point and know my shit but get shut down with wrong information being denigrated in the process. Then when presented with correct information reject it out of pride.

I'm struggling what to do and where to go.

Billy, you have a wife and a baby. You're about as stuck as it gets mate.

I'm fully ok with that, we've been together since we were 13 so that's all we know. Just trying to figure out how I am going to provide them with a nice life and get our own place is stressful.

It's hard for me to put this into words on here but I'll give you a little insight to my predicament. Southcoast Cabinet is the company I work for, first job and have been here 3 years. I've picked things up very fast and have been a supervisor/ lead/ department manager for a little over a year now. I run our newest department which is rigid thermofoil. Anyways i make good money compared to the other shop guys but not compared to the world outside. ($20hr..started at 10)

 My dad is the president of the company and i don't know where I go from here. I feel as if I'm going to just be stuck here doing what I'm doing as time goes on just because I can't screw over my dad by leaving. It also doesn't help that all my friends make a lot better money than I do.

Sorry for the rambling but for perspective the houses around me are $450k+ and I need to figure out how to get into one of dem by 25. I'm only 20.

I was messing around on a rail the other evening and hit my back peg on the way up. Immediately I hit the upright and got the rail between my legs. Not only between my legs but exactly between the butt cheeks. You know the webbing between your fingers if you splay them out? Imagine ripping that tissue.

I'm potentially doing the opposite commute wise, got an interview next month which would turn a 2.5 mile commute into a 25 mile one, albeit for a sizeable pay increase. I kinda know it would do my head in but having been at my current job over 10 years I feel it's now or never.

My first team night out with my job was a couple of nights ago and was completely arseholed. I sleep walked into the corridor of the hotel at about 5am, woke up trying to open my room door running on the spot needing to piss so had to do it in the corridor, then go to reception from the fifth floor in my boxers to get another key.
