    Tesla Pickup Unveil

    My main problem with the EV Silverado is that I don't like the way it looks at all. Half Honda Ridgeline/Half Chevy Avalanche. The Ford Lightning looks mostly like a regular F-150 which I think is decent-looking. That's all just personal preference on looks though. I'm also firmly in the...

    Tesla Pickup Unveil

    I'm not saying there aren't chargers somewhere nearby, I'm saying the last thing most boaters want to do is sit and wait on a charge when you've been out in 100-degree heat all day and are sunburned, tired, and probably a bit dehydrated lol. Unless they are going to install chargers in a bunch...

    Tesla Pickup Unveil

    While those aren't the worst numbers in the world, I would barely be able to tow my boat to the lake and back at that rate. Not a ton of places to grab a charge at the boat ramps, so if I needed a boost it's going to cut into my trip time. Last thing I want to do after I've been in the sun all...

    SeriusXM Question

    Interesting. Seems like what AVRs do with certain sound modes where it will turn a stereo source into a surround sound playback, or add 7.1 channels to a 5.1 channel source. Mostly just a party trick since things like Atmos and Auro 3D audio have to be encoded as such on the audio bed layers...

    Weird Walk-Arounds !

    May have needed a new W&B after all that dirt from the mud daubers, lol.

    SeriusXM Question

    Remastering of what into Atmos? Atmos is almost entirely for movies/theater due to it being mostly elevation channels (overhead). Not sure how much good it would do for music aside from maybe when watching/listening to a live version of a concert and you could get some reverb from the concert...

    I did, and I've been eyeing a Master's level program, lol.

    Which gun takes a clip of 17 - 9mm rounds? Hopefully it was in a magazine. ;)

    SeriusXM Question

    There's a sort of irony there about using a cell phone to stream a "satellite radio" app, lol. Potentially no satellites involved in the actual transmission of data, aside from whatever the local cell towers use.

    Vans Files For Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

    Which trips through bankruptcy are "fun"?

    A Socio economic discussion about boomers.

    Fun point of reference for Ford trucks. I remember going with my father to look at new trucks in 1998, when the 1999s had just hit the lot. Sticker price for a new, loaded 1999 F-150 SuperCab Lariat was just over $22K. My father shook his head and said he'd never buy a truck for over $20K...

    A Socio economic discussion about boomers.

    I'll add that as a Xennial, I have been very fortunate to have chosen an occupation (Mfg Accounting) that was in demand and hasn't suffered through economic downturns that hit many people around the time I graduated from college (2006). Within 2 years of my graduation, the Xennial/Millennial...

    [N/A] Over, Under, or Around ...

    Belt/waistband goes at your waist, below your belly button. There's no "hiding" a gut, and it looks even worse with pants pulled higher. Either lose the gut or ride the gut over the waistband.

    And here we go!

    I could understand the UCF reference a little bit, but at that point they were an AAC team, which didn't carry the same weight as the Power 5 conferences at the time (rightly or wrongly). However, FSU getting left out of a 4-team playoff is a complete sham after having been undefeated IN a...

    NA why do people bag leaves and throw them away?

    I have at least 10 mature oak trees, a Southern Magnolia, a Black Walnut, and a few Birch trees that are all on my .75 acre lot, or on the perimeter. The yard becomes a solid carpet of leaves and it would kill off every blade of grass if I didn't clean it up. I bagged them the first year and had...

    Fly-In Community Grass Strip

    Good advice. Definitely want to make sure there weren't any big disputes about how things were being run. The way the documents read, it seems like someone bought this parcel about a year or two ago, and is now selling it for roughly about what it was purchased for. Hopefully it wasn't because...

    Auto: tires

    There are load-pressure tables provided by the manufacturer for just that purpose. No reason to run a higher tire pressure than what covers your GVWR. I promise you will be able to tell the difference in a leaf-spring vehicle (like my Excursion) between 50psi and 65psi, or 80psi. While I'm sure...

    Auto: tires

    Good lord. Not sure how that helps with getting more life out of the tires, but I'm sure the center section gets worn down to the steel belts by the time you're through! If I ran my LT-rated at 80psi, I'd have no fillings left in my teeth after a 20-mile drive, lol.
