Well I can understand what it is by looking at it, but I don't think I've ever seen one.

I'm going to get a paramotor damn the risks. I'm slowly getting more addicted to the air over time and a plane is a little out of the budget of a trucker.

Re: Fake Ryzen chips

Quite honestly, I think better than 95% of Amazon shoppers don't notice/realize/understand when they're buying an item sold by a 3rd party. On multiple occasions I've had friends/co-workers who are prolific Amazon shoppers give me a deer-in-headlights look when I point out that an item is 3rd party...

Re: DYMT: Imi's Legacy

If you want nightmare fodder look at dashcam vids on LiveLeak. I do it to learn, but I see some disturbing things. Let's just say, for starters, whenever I drive by people walking I do a rough estimate about where their head would fall if they tripped into the road and I drive outside of that area. ...

Re: DYMT: Imi's Legacy

Guess it's different in Vermont, most states simply require that you yield right of way, which means if you aren't in the way your fine. Uhhhh...have you actually looked up the law in "most states"? It's been a couple years (decades) since my driver's test but back then, the manual explai...

Yeah, in Illinois a full stop is not required, but "may be necessary" to allow the emergency vehicle to safely pass.

Re: DYMT: Imi's Legacy

I don't ever have a problem with that. Give the ambulance a wide berth. Why? If the path is totally and completely clear then drive normally. It's not driving a bomb or sensitive to you being on the other side of the street. One time I was in the car with someone that was so silly she stopped in th...

Always funny when someone pulls off of an extremely low traffic road because an ambulance is coming on the other side of a two way road. I wonder how many accidents have been caused by people doing unnecessary and silly things like that.

I find myself deciding that it's time to dispose of all of my older 4s batteries. They have too much gas in them. Storing batteries i can do somewhat safely, but the deep discharge needed to make them safe for disposal is ironically dangerous to perform. I thought about going on craigslist and offer...

Oddly enough my company bans drivers from certain toll roads after a certain amount of experience so I usually take us 30 from Merrillville and never see that section.

A traditional HEPA filter would probably be just as effective, without the other potential drawbacks.

Yes indeedy, my roll is in two halves though. I took the exacto and cut one half of the roll into two thin strips I can use in some niche situations. You can see it on the other build where I wanted to keep my lights revealed but still use the strength this tape offers. I've been trying to find simi...

I think what you end up with are a bunch of disappointed people. Shoot, the guy that bought my GPU was heading for a $560 mistake before he returned it. The mistake only cost him about $112 after my 20% restocking fee. So technically I've made $120 off mining. Technically. You made more than most I...
