    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    As Teddy Roosevelt spins in his grave... As much as I like my cell and WiFi, there are other ways to access phone service and the internet in remote locations. The national parks aren't meant to be built up and filled with modern conveniences (though it has happened on occasion in the past).

    In 9th grade earth science, I was taught that an engine must do work. Here is a link that seems to explain this better https://jakubmarian.com/difference-between-engine-and-motor/ Based on that knowledge, I made an engine out of a couple of small pieces of copper pipe, a grill ignitor, a spark...

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    https://opentextbc.ca/principlesofeconomics/ Economics is a difficult subject, I only got a B in it. The actions taken by a president usually take years to have an impact on the economy. If any of you wish to read the text book that I provided a link to, I think that you'll see that many of...

    That doesn't lessen the heinous act that the term "lynching" has come to define.

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    Avanti, I can't speak for everyone here, but you are mistaken if you think that I'm so partisan that I couldn't speak out against, or be critical of, the words of a democrat. You are also mistaken if you think that I support Joe Biden. I'm of the opinion that the majority of younger people on...

    Challenge/Special ideas

    Trans Euro Trail I suspect that James May might have already seen this. I should also thank Harry Metcalfe for something that's entertaining to post in this thread. Instead of motorcycles, I picture this being done with things like a Unimog. Because I grew up in a place where there was a...

    To an American, your stance is ridiculous. We care about our constitution and following the rule of law greatly here. Our founding document is very important to us, and violating it is not something that we take lightly. It can be amended, but it also must be followed.

    I'll forgive you for not knowing what I'm about to state, since you're an Italian living in Italy. Holding the G7 at Trump's private golf club will be a direct violation of the emoluments clause of the US constitution.

    Ownership Verified: Oh no, they've got another one - leviathan's MX-5 NC

    I had an '08 NC for about 4 years. I don't know about in Germany, but the US model had a shared clutch/brake reservoir that on the car that I had (and others, as you can read about on NC forums) caused a problem where the clutch pedal wouldn't always disengage the clutch. There is a threaded...

    Good news! Amazon renews TGT for Season 4

    It looks like they're going to be spending the majority of their time doing other things. I don't want to put any spoilers here, but I think that if they happen to go somewhere that they have been before, it could work. We'll just have to wait and see, I guess. With only 2 episodes, if one...
