Re: Coffee not essential for life, Swiss government says

That coffee was for Gov't employees to drink on the job...eh?


I would think coffee drinkers would stockpile their own. I keep a fair amount of Freeze dried on hand. You know, just in case.

Re: Food Insecurity 2019

There is nothing quite like talking up "massive shortages" for just about anything to sell higher prices.... Works for the oil companies, why not farmers.

Re: Surplus Growlers Hitting the Civilian Market

Looks like a chopped M-151.

Good luck on getting spare parts. For that kind of jack, an ATV is the better long term choice.

Re: Deployment to the southern border

Since the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is a component of the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) - i would think she would have armed security. What is possible is also dependent on location - the Tucson sector, for example, is entirely different than SoCal. In A...

Re: The study on collapse they thought you should not read – yet

"environmental catastrophe," lost me right there....

Also - I thought 'study' was something peer reviewed by professionals or academics.

Re: You're at work. Things go bad. What would you do?

I work on the 3rd floor of a 4 story building. We just had a 7.0 earthquake about 10 (air) miles away. I think this fills scenario. I happened to be at home. But after checking that the house was still weather tight (no broken windows etc) - I drove over to the DW workplace with extra batteries and ...

Re: M 7.0 earthquake 7.0 mi. NNW Anchorage, Alaska

When it rains, it pours.. Storm hitting town now has winds of 75MPH and rain - but by Sunday night we should have 6 to 8 inches of snow.

If you don't like the weather, just wait a couple of days.

Yeah HP I was thinking more like - Well crap, there goes 10 and 20 meters. I suppose I could put up a larger antenna try working long path on 80 - but that would make me an Old Fart.
