Re: Io

I made it through to the end but it seemed near interminable. I kept waiting for something interesting to happen. I vaguely remember at one point fighting off sleep and wondering if Micah had come to the mountaintop observatory to kill Sam's father. I found myself hoping that Micah had come to kill ...

I remember loving it on first watch, then forcing my friends to watch it. I was not allowed to pick a movie for awhile after that.
I had a similar experience when I made my friends watch 'The Big Lebowski'. That's when I realized I needed new friends. :lol:

Re: What have you bought in the last 48 hours?(firearms related)

Lee trim guides for 10mm & .40 cal. Lee sizing dies .451 & .429. Lee 4 lb dip pot for annealing experiments. 1k 9x18 makarov brass. 20 ga Forster slug mold. & 1k CI 22 or ammo, (on clearance at Graf's). Dumb question: what do you mean by a Lee "trim guide"? Do you mean their case length gauges?

Re: Oto Melara R 2.5 Gorgona

Looks like the undercarriage at the extreme front and rear ends of the vehicle is designed to improve approach and departure angles. Both for that and for its amphibious capabilities. That's right! Clearly inspired by 007's amphibious Lotus Esprit: http://static.financialexpress.com/m-images/M_Id_4...

Re: good starter tool set for home and auto use ?

A decent socket wrench set is a lifetime investment that will pay for itself many times over if you're at all handy/mechanically inclined. I purchased a Craftsman SAE/metric set in the late 1980s when they probably were still American made. I was just a kid at the time, but to this day, I consider i...

This tsunami was apparently caused by an underwater landslide, rather than an earthquake. Although I doubt that distinction matters much to the many, many victims.

Screw discussions about post apocalyptic ammo availability or discrepancies between line of sight and bore axis. Dental decay and how to prevent it truly is the key factor in surviving the zombie infestation.

That's an interesting proposal.

the "London Riots" proved differently. at least this side of the pond anyway.
I wasn't aware the London Riots were in response to a disaster. I thought they were due to social, political and racial tensions. If so, we really shouldn't be talking about that incident here on a disaster forum.

This way, it was like a bear spray grenade, cleverly disguised as an " accident ". If they were as devilishly smart and autonomous as you have written w...
