I watched the video again today.  He can tune my V8 any time he wants.  Is that a sweet sounding engine or what?

RE buickanddeere:  Moved in with the eldest son into the house the parents built or inherited from his father.  Daughters?  Marry well.

If I were choosing children for my retirement years I go for not pretty kinda pudgy girls.  And yes, they could have my toys.

The poor politician.  I think I know a couple of other people that I might move up to the front of the line.  Is vengeance less honorable than patriotism?  People get the representatives they vote for and deserve.  Yes; we have the leadershipness we deserve.  Let us rejoice in all he is teaching.

I've thought this program for fatal medical diagnosises might just be the solution.  Not necessarily murder but something that would get you 1 year to life under mandatory sentencing.

No Bob, his dad isn't around.  The poor lost lad's dad is still out with the two blonds that picked him up last night at the Diesel Engine Museum.  You know, where you go when you're getting hot to trot.

Hi Martin,

I think a piece of half inch rope put on the pulleys and then measured will get you'll be pretty close.  I've coasted back towards local parts stores and enjoying their customer service.

Have I missed something here?

I just caught sight of your engine.  Looks like a real hit at $100.  I'd email carlB to help with an informed decision about WVO and NG.

Good luck.

May Heaven smile upon you lad.  A reply in less than one line.  I'm thinking this is a personal BEST!  I knew you had it in You.

Most of what I write is for fun.  We are not going to save the world or culture on this blog or any blog I've ever seen.  Occasionally some "Food For Thought" sneaks in.  This thread is about the possibly most destructive force in the US.  170 years ago one set of states went to war with the rest of the states, AKA The Union.  Estimates as high as 750,000 of just soldiers are pretty much accepted as valid today.  That's really eye opening when you consider that there were about 30,000,000 people as total population or about 1/10 of the population of today.  It would be like 7,500,000 US soldiers dying in a war today.  Listen to all the poop you want it really boiled down to the states rights to buy and sell people.  Actually these states were offered status quo but they declared war for the ability to bring new states in as slavery is OK states.

Helping others is really important.  Whether that's helping them and their children breath clean air and drink clean water or having the right to vote upon their own destiny.  Helping others is important.

And for "This guy would be fun to deal with".  Unhappiness is a contagious disease.  I'm very careful when playing with overtly unhappy people.

Sorry I'm late.

It's like bump starting a car.

WOW!  How these style of discussions strike me.

Liking or not liking someone has little to do with racism.  Individuals not not liking groups is also a personal choice but seems to have a funny odor about it.  Requiring people to support public programs and then preventing them from using those mandatory programs is a problem.  If you're going to use government facilities that are paid for by all groups and yet some of those groups can't use them then we have a problem.  It is one of the pillars of racism. 

It's kind of like saying racist not welcome here, especially you white b$&%@*ds.  Or Help Wanted unless you're of Irish descent.  These are right next door to "Those of African ancestry should rethink being in town whilst the sun resides below the horizon to the West.  One of my favorite quotes is from Groucho Marx: "I wouldn't join a club that had standards so low they'd accept me."  We have zero tolerance - Especially of zero tolerance.

I just spent a week in Arizona.  Very different place from what I'm used to.  They have residential developments that are measured in kilometers.  All, and I mean ALL, of the houses or condo units are light brown stucco.  Radicals paint some of the trim or borders a darker brown (not blue or red or .......) but brown.  All of the doors are the same color and I suspect have the same door handles.  Land of the free.  The greatest freedom of all - Freedom from Choice.  Private Enterprise at its best.  And then I watched the latest rendition of "Fahrenheit 451" on the plane ride home.  Neat vacation.

Obviously another crowdfunding opportunity.

This could be converted to a jet engine pretty easy and those disk brakes say I'm stopping NOW!  None of that V-8 powered lawn tractor craziness we've seen earlier.

When is it going to be on a crowdfunding platform?  At least he's got a functional prototype.

I saw a Mercedes diesel powered jeep a while back.  That's about it for me when it comes to delusions of eternal life or it's step sister - reincarnation.  Live it now!

Government does a fine job of working as promoter and liability limiter for big business, as you would expect for someone who is dependent on them for campaign money. It's a simple case of follow the money. Until we change that, "democracy" is a farce.
Being seriously challenged and being a farce are a bit apart.  For those of us in the US this would be powder for the cannon known as Amendment 28.  I'd post a link but that would be just a creep to near where few of us want information blogs like LEF to go.

PS:  Video links work best if they set to the beginning before copying them to a link.  Although the <6 cents a KW in the Middle East was interesting video too especially when you consider that was in 2016.  (OK, I didn't watch the entire 46 minutes but the first 6 minutes looked good.)
