Re: The Knowledge - How to Rebuild Our World from Scratch

I think the key point is the use of the term, rebuild.

The advantage of trying to remake or rebuild a thing or a process rather than create them from nothing is inestimable.

Re: Exhausting night trying to be a Good Samaritan.

Did the idea of simply calling the police occur to you?

The woman claims that she was the victim of an assault, dealing with crime victims is what the police do for a living.

Glad it mostly turned out ok but you took an awful lot of chances that could have been easily avoided.

Re: It's the late 30's and your a Jew in Germany

A little off-topic but there's a very good series of books by a writer named Philip Kerr that explores a lot of this history from the POV of a private detective named Bernie Gunther who's living and trying to get by in pre-war Berlin. The first few have been published as a group called "Berlin Noir"...

Re: DIY Oral Rehydration Solution

Add a packet of unsweetened lemon-lime Koolaid and you've got home-made Gatoraid.

With a lot less sugar than the bottled stuff.

Used this formula many times, works great for TX of diarrhea as well as regular dehydration.

Galloway Precision...?

Anyone have any first-hand experience with a replacement trigger from Galloway Precision?

I'm looking at getting something to reduce the trigger travel and improve the action on my Ruger LC9.

Comments, reviews, warnings, and reccos requested.

Thanks.

I've never been a fan of Liquid Bandage. It would always peel off again within a few hours. Regardless of application. YMMV, though, so if it works for you, use it.
