The Ronan Point Tower video made me think of this Monty Python sketch: https://youtu.be/vNoPJqm3DAY

Makes the already dark sketch that much darker.

Am I the only one here who thought Oktoberfest was probably held in... October? I see that it runs from now into the first few days of October, but yeah, I learned something new today.

Either way, I'm picking up some Sam Adams Oktoberfest to celebrate.

Cars that US insurance companies don't think are worth fixing get sold at auction overseas (legally, they cannot be driven on the road here even if you fix them, once the VIN is registered as totaled).

I don't think that's right - unless being totaled has different levels that I'm not aware of. As long as the vehicle can pass inspection, it can be driven. What it will have though is what's called a "salvage title". That will (or should) warn future buyers. Now, once the vehicle goes overseas, I wouldn't doubt that the "totaled" part of the title is conveniently left out.

When my Jeep got rear ended, the mostly cosmetic damages ended up costing more that the vehicle was worth, so it was technically totaled. I got a check for $2800 and after replacing the rear glass, was able to drive it for a few more years and then sold it for $800. It turned out being a pretty sweet deal for me.

When I looked for the commercial online I found they completely lean into this. But sure enough, checking this out on my computer is fine.

Luckily, I've never seen this commercial on TV. Yes, it is horrible - I couldn't get through it on my computer. There has always been something about loud whispering that really gets on my nerves. To me, someone loudly whispering in a theater is way worse than someone talking normally at the same volume.

I am much better. It was gallstones, a pain I hope nobody ever experiences.
I feel for you man. I was in the ER three years ago for the same thing. It ended up not being quite bad enough that they had to remove my gallbladder immediately, which was good (especially insurance-wise), but I had to live with it for about three months, which wasn't so good. Not that it hurt like that for three months - I just had to make sure I ate almost no fat until I could get it removed.

As usual, Texas didn't get the message as to when Fall is supposed to start since, at least here, it's 90 with 60% humidity and will remain in the 90s for at least another month, month and a half.

Here in S.E. Washington, it is supposed to get to 103 today, but this morning a bunch of smoke rolled in from a wildfire in Oregon, so it's only 90 right now at 3:15.

So... yay smoke?

Blue, that's terrible. Probably wouldn't be worth it, but this is borderline "time to move" territory. But, when you look at what jdreyer posted, it looks like a charcoal grill can be used 10ft. from a building... so, does that change things at all? Probably not, as you would think they would have gotten that right in the letter you received.

Quoting/Paraphrasing ( modified one bit in bold ) a comment on the video:

"Looks useful as long as:

-It's as durable as current axles.
-Is strictly restricted to very low speeds for obvious reasons."

I haven't read the article, but I know from experience that there's a limit to usable steering angle. When I was sixteen I bought a 1971 Triumph Spitfire, which I drove for six years or so. It was like driving a go-cart. So much fun - a complete rattle-trap - but I loved it. Anyway, I could crank the steering far enough that instead of turning, it would pretty much push the front tires sideways and car would still go straight. This only happened if I was sitting still and cranked the wheel all the way over, but it was amusing.

As far as I know, summer camp wasn't really a thing here in SE Washington when I was a kid. Maybe if I had been a boy-scout, I don't know. But still, I just don't remember any friends leaving to go to camp. Of course I always saw it shown on TV and in movies, and it mostly looked like fun.

My first non-lawn mowing job was at a doughnut shop / diner called the Spudnut Shop. At the time (1977-78), the minimum wage was $2.50 but they only paid me $2 an hour but told me I could pretty eat whatever I wanted - which I did. I don't know, maybe it was legal since I was under 18. A friend of mine who worked there thought it was bullshit and simply grabbed $5 out of the till every day... called it his "pension plan".

Of course the cost of living was much, much less then, but one thing I remember was that a music album still cost around $7. Think about it, an album with maybe 40 minutes of music cost almost three times the minimum wage.

Okay, I'll try it. Thanks.

I've been using OpenOffice for years, it works fine, but is basically the exact same program it was when I first started using it. Of course, that's not always a bad thing, Microsoft Office has "upgraded" itself into a buggy mess over the last couple years.

I've designed a few pieces of equipment for a couple Kaiser aluminum extrusion plants and have spent some time around this kind of equipment. The power in those presses is hard to believe. They take a solid billet of aluminum, which looks like a solid cylinder - maybe 18" in diameter by 24" tall, probably depending on what they're making - and shove it through a mandrel to produce maybe 40 feet of tubing, or whatever, just like a giant Play-doh press.

When I do have to go to the local plant, and they're running, I'm never very comfortable because I've seen a couple videos like this before.

Yeah, I never ignore anyone. Not even V.G.Reagle.
There was one user I had ignored, as their rare postings were pure vitriol, but eventually I unignored them.
I am ignored by 5, which given my verbosity, am thinking that's actually low.

I'm considering ignoring you for using the words "vitriol" and "verbosity" in the same post (fuken showoff).

Nobody has me on their ignore list either - this is going straight on my resume!

I do have one user that I have ignored, which I don't remember at all. And now I have to un-ignore them to see their posts because I'm curious.


Edit: Damn I'm dumb... I hit the un-ignore button before writing down the person's user name... and it's gone.

About three weeks ago my 82 year old mother fell and broke her hip, so she ended up with a partial hip replacement. She's in a rehab facility right now, and it's hard to tell how the hip is doing because she already had a very bad nerve condition (that the doctors can't diagnose) that just kills her from her tailbone to her foot, but the hip seems to be the least of her problem. It seems like if the hip were her only problem, she'd probably be doing pretty well.

Secret text: It could have been that quick for me -- my first two guesses were irate, chair. Which I did quickly, I immediately thought of what turned out to be the solution, but I was concerned there might be many words ending with those three letters. A couple of minutes of going through the possibilities and yeah... I was wrong.

Got it in three also, but it took me an embarrassingly long time. I knew the word had an "A" in the middle and either started or ended with the letter "R", but I stubbornly kept trying to come up with a word that started with "R", which as far as I can tell, may not exist (at least, not with the letters that were eliminated). It then it took me way too long to come up with the "AIR" ending for the word.
