    I was thinking of borrowing some clean room technology to 'vent' the methane into a capture tank. CH4 baby. It'll power my Corolla after Gavin Newsom bans gasoline. I might even go with a direct to manifold system.

    That sounds like slang for a velocity stack or something.

    There's another theory involving an alternate dimension filled with missing term papers, unpaired socks, and a missing episode of Bonanza.

    That would have been the one with Adam's missing term paper on his way to become a Dr.

    I've solved the sock problem.....ALL of my socks pair up. Very, very hard to mis-match sweat socks ! And I have enough that it don't matter, laundry on Mondays, with enough socks for 11
    or 12 days. But I'm still not sure what dimension they actually go to. I input "Missing Socks, physical location" to the computer navigation system of TARDIS, and it goes into a computer loop, and then I have to start over. So they may NEVER be found :alex:

    The infinite loop is part of the dimensional charm, and the phrase 'don't go there' definitely applies.

    Talk about something that people overpay for. Then, find out they're harder to sell than a truck full of rotten fruit.
    I'll bet Mr. Ponzi sold timeshares before he realized he made more money selling them nothing. Maybe he had trouble walking away from the timeshares too. Have you seen that commercial for lawyers that help people get out of timeshare agreements? It's nice to be a specialist.

    Yeah, it's an interesting:headscratch:concept. And might have perpetual customer base.

    The first time I heard about timeshares, I just tuned out all future thoughts on the matter. I wouldn't even consider owning a condo because of:
    • Shared walls.
    • Homeowners fees.
    • Homeowners associations.
    • They remind me of timeshares.

    They're called Condom-Minimums.....you get screwed, with minimum to no benefit.

    Seems self-explanatory to me !:headscratch::headscratch::headscratch::dunno:

    They look like apartments to me. New name with a cranky home owners association.

    An apartment YOU have to pay taxes on.....

    We got rain:drowning:for the last 2 days, finally stopped & cleared about 9:00 last night. Went from solid rain to bright 3/4 moon in about 1/2 hr !
    lawn needs mowing AGAIN when everything dries out, maybe tomorrow :(

    Never thought about it like that ! At least the zero-turn is light enough it won't sink out of sight like the Kubota always wanted to !

    You're at the whim of the rain gods as are we. Right now, with no rain in sight, we are awaiting the capricious verdict of the wind. It's stirring up and spreading new fires and blowing smoke to whom so ever it deems to be miserable. Yesterday, it was blowing the smoke away from us. Tomorrow, we might be breathing smoke from a fire two hundred miles away from us.
    btw, I was able to set 1,000 rounds of these Hunters Supply Hard Cast Bullets 38 Caliber (357 Diameter) 158 Grain Lead Semi-Wadcutters on back order. Any anecdotes?

    I saw in today's Chi Tribune that some of the large vinyards are really getting hit w/heavy smoke, to the point it's going to taint the grapes. Mental note avoid 2020 vintage!
    Looks like we've got more:drowning:rain coming, and it was only 53*f about 1:00 PM today.

    Never have used any of their bullets, but since you usually load mid-range, they will probably work perfectly. Normally you load around 750-800 in .38 Spl. & 1000 or so in .357 Mag, right ?
