Re: Paris is burning

I've been under the assumption that they were renovating the Notre Dame church for like the past couple years. I wonder if this fire could've been the result of a work incident and not something more sinister. Anyway, here's hoping they can get the fire contained before any more of the structure is...

Paris is burning

At least its symbolic heart - Notre Dame Cathedral.

Re: Coffee not essential for life, Swiss government says

Those Swiss government officials will belatedly reconsider the definition of "essential for survival" when pitchfork-wielding, caffeine-deprived mobs storm their offices during the next major disaster.

Their fateful last words: "Let them drink tea."

Z-Ration Zombie MRE taste test

From EmmyMadeInJapan, one of my favorite YT food reviewers. Enjoyable if you don't take the zombie tie-in concept too seriously. Some of the commenters are right on about the noisy mylar outer bag however.

Re: Servus (greetings from Germany)

Welcome to the forums. As in many things in life, we all could learn a lot from our elders about prepping for challenging times. As Halfpint points out, planning around being part of a like-minded community that stays put, rather than bugging out as a lone wolf, is almost always the best approach.

Re: Midwest farmland flooded - what will be the impact on food prices?

I read that maybe as many a one million head of cattle drowned in NE. This is expected to greatly increase beef prices. In our capitalist system the ammo market expectation = reality. FIFY. Sorry, couldn't resist. Other markets sometimes show a surprising lack of price elasticity. But every supply ...

Re: Lets Talk: Air Rifles!

For the 90 cubic tank it took me about two and a half minutes from 3000 to 4500. The 68 cubic foot tank took me about the same amount of time from 500 PSI to about 1,500 PSI. I filled the reservoir in my hot sun in about a minute and a half. Most of these jobs are topping off existing tanks. They'r...

News accounts report it was a monster. Little warning, EF-3, broad swath and it touched down in exactly the wrong spot.

Re: Apartment heating

You'd have to ask Rinnai why they designed it that way. It's electronic ignition and I'm assuming the lack of a pilot light has something to do with safety. As to hacking in a battery powered fan, I don't think the landlord would be too happy about my doing that. Is it direct wired? If not a batter...

The dive tanks get put in a tub of water when filling them. but that's just for the heat that gets generated. They need to be inspected, especially the aluminum ones, for safety to prevent catastrophes.
