Hey, I tried to skirt the politics I may have jump once or twice on that. But I left it alone. Mostly talking about a law that will get passed here in WA. :v:

Re: Halfapint's Getting Some Land

Changes ALL semi auto guns as "semi automatic assault weapon", also charges a $25 tax on all gun sales with no cap to how much they can charge, along with other stupid things. I'm pretty liberal, but none of this is "common sense" we currently have some of the strictest gun laws as far as background...

Re: Halfapint's Getting Some Land

Great work! I plan to do the same or similar outside of Granite Falls. Hopefully this year. Originally from Darrington. But spent many years downtown Seattle and LA. Time to move back. Awesome! Though I'm a little hesitant to promote WA as much as I used to with nearly certain passage of I-1639 (it...

Re: Halfapint's Getting Some Land

Update: Didn't do much work this weekend. Only worked Sunday and got a lot of dirt moved. I wanted to try and clean up the piles I had created so I didn't have to make a bunch of trips down the hill to drop the dirt off the drop off. I moved about 30 bucket loads of dirt down and was able to extend ...

Re: Feels like it’s time to start stocking the caches...

I just picked up a used Springfield xdm 9mm for $300 with 3 mags. Has a LITTLE bit of wear on it but new bbl. I think my concern with that would be to question why a new barrel was needed. If it's an upgraded barrel, that's one thing, otherwise, I'm going to wonder how many rounds has it fired and/...

Re: Women wearing headphones fails to heed active shooter warning, gets shot

I used to walk everywhere with headphones on when I lived in the city. Rarely would the music be loud and I was always looking around. I make it a habit to NOT stare at my phone when walking because people are crazy and you never know. Sad that this happened, it just goes to prove that you really ne...

Re: Steam/Electric power plant

That's pretty cool! The video isn't playing at work. but I like the use of the pressure cooker as your boiler, and it looks like some sort of home made turbine connected via pips that spins, and is connected to a small electric motor. That would be super easy to build.

I had looked into this as well. I thought for sure using a septic tank, installing agitators, then using a garbage disposal to grind up any and all food waste to make biogas. I calculated it a few years ago based on 2 people and it said it would create something like 32 cubic feet of gas per month o...

Re: Pathogens in fog?

I always enjoyed your thought that fungus was going to cause the ZA. Fog is moist, cool, and could easily allow for growth of pathogens. If something happened, and caused a prolonged fog, I could see it carrying something that could cause us harm.

My roommate has been on a reloading spree however, he's loaded about 400 .270's for hunting season and weekly practice before hunting....

Re: *@!$ Snakes!

I think the far biggest issue would be food. Sure mice, shrews, voles are plentiful nearly everywhere. Problem is, catching them alive. Most traps are meant to kill them. You could make some home made traps with plastic bottles and stuff to catch live food, but snakes can go a lot longer than 5 day...
