The Bogota worm is a great pick but somebody trademarked Bogotas as a name of a pick maker.

I've always wondered about these ads. You've seen all the commercials.

But what really happens when you ask for help with an erection lasting more than 4 hours?

I walked into a drug store and asked to talk to a male pharmacist.

The woman I was speaking with said she was the only pharmacist and since she and her sister owned the store, there were no male employees. She asked if she could help me.

I said that I really would have preferred to speak with a male pharmacist.

She assured me that she was completely professional and whatever it was that I needed to discuss,

I could be confident that she would treat me with a high level of professionalism.

I reluctantly agreed and began by saying, "As a shy man, this is tough for me to discuss, but here goes.

I get erections every day that last more than four hours. This condition causes me a lot of problems and severe embarrassment.

I was wondering what you could give me for it?"

The pharmacist said, "Just a minute, I'll talk to my sister."

When she returned, she said, "We discussed it at length and this is the absolute best we can do:

* 1/3 ownership in the store,

* a company pickup truck,

* a king size bed and

* $3,000 a month in living expenses."

There's a Mitsubishi MRJ90 doing laps above me right now.

ETA- I'd never heard of one so I googled it and there are 4 in the world. Rare bird.

The first flight, scheduled after the design was finalized, was to take place in the second quarter of 2012, but was delayed to 2013, and then further delayed to spring 2014 due to delays in the procurement of engines. Likewise the first delivery was planned to take place in the first quarter of 2014, but was delayed to mid to late 2016.In August 2013, Mitsubishi announced a third major delay to the program, and that the first flight would take place by summer 2015 while the first delivery would take place by summer 2017. Delays in the procurement of the Pratt & Whitney engines and other components were cited as the cause of this delay.
In September 2013, after announcing the third delay to the MRJ program, Mitsubishi publicly displayed a prototype MRJ fuselage, including cockpit enclosure, and announced that it would hire foreign pilots and technicians to serve as consultants as the program progressed to safety testing and regulatory approvals.Pictures of the first fully assembled MRJ90 were available on 26 June 2014,[28] and an official rollout occurred on 18 October 2014.
The maiden flight of the MRJ90 took place on 11 November 2015. On 24 December 2015, Mitsubishi announced a one-year delay for the first delivery of the MRJ, to mid-2018. The delay was attributed to insufficient wing strength and the redesign of the landing gear for better safety.
Static strength test were completed on November 1, 2016 and confirmed that the airframe could withstand 1.5 times the maximum load.


We also often see KC-46 Pegasi (Pegasuses?), Omega Air to Air Refueling 707's, P-8 Poseidons, Boeing's dreamlifter, and sometimes Saudi prince Al Waleed's 747.

I have one of those Sony turntable 300 CD changers.

A while back it stopped working. So I did some research and ordered some spare parts..... And the other day I fixed it, with the help of some YouTube videos.

Turns out everything mechanical that thing does is driven by plastic gears and belt drives. Except the 'belts' are little black rubber bands of very specific sizes.

Two of them had stretched out and fallen off. Third one was guilty by association- I replaced all 3. Required removing dozens of screws and disconnecting half a dozen or so little cable plugs.

The little rubber bands were like a buck each. Paying to fix it would have been in triple digits. Yay me. Anyone having similar trouble, I can help walk you through it.

I like the physical media for the originals, but I rip it all to an iPod and listen from that.

And I got the iPod from a repair place where they cobbled together an old case and board, new battery and hard drive. Practically new, and for cheap. :mrgreen:

We have an AV receiver with decent speakers as part of a modest home theater in our living room. The CD player is hooked up to that.

On the rare occasions I have use of the living room to myself, actually playing a CD through real speakers is a much more satisfying experience than playing music either on my PC (and its modest little desktop speakers) or on phone or tablet, through earbuds.

Though yes, most of my listening is ripped mp3's on a mobile device, through earbuds.

I like the CDs too, but I am going to be moving soon, and it was easier to move that monster to the trash bin for somebody else to take away, than to pack it up to move myself. The 20+ year old shelf system it was hooked to will likely be making the move though, because it works well enough for a garage stereo and I just have to get a cord so I can plug the ipod into it.

Fun fact: a nasal decongestant containing Phenylephrine can help stop nosebleeds, also cotton balls saturated in it work better than toilet paper in many cases as you can get the packing farther in.

Tu e in tomorrow, same bat time, same bat station, and ill explain how to dissolve broken taps using something found in the pickling section of your grocery store. :ugeek:

So does cauterization Chemical process these days. Near instant, long term relief. Beats the hell out of a tampon in the nostril for 3-4 days. Though there is so much relief when one comes out that it is almost worth it for that alone.

I've been impressed with a company called Mediabridge, their stuff seems to be well made and relatively inexpensive for what they are (more reasonable than Monster, anyway) and have been trouble-free for me. Available at Amazon, of course, and most of them are Prime eligible.

I've moved away from physically hooking my devices into the stereo systems in the house, as I was always either leaving my phone/tablet in the wrong room when I wanted it. I also had the jack go bad one one phone some time back.

I got a Chromecast Audio unit for my main (and older) stereo system. Works through house WiFi, plugs into an aux jack. I think there are Bluetooth units on the market as well.

Works great with my Android devices, which both have SD Cards large enough to hold my entire MP3 collection, as well streaming radio stations and XM . I think my daughter got it working with her I-Phone without much problem. Not bad for under $40 at Best Buy.

When we re-did the bedroom last year, got a bookshelf unit with built in Bluetooth. I rarely use the RF tuner and almost never the CD/MP3 player.

The ER docs wouldn't do cauterization, so it was a plug up the nose, and the ENT wouldn't do it, because if the amount of time that had passed, he couldn't be sure exactly where the bleeding was. :roll:

Don't know whence this thought sprang, but did anyone else have a mom who made home decor (wreaths, trees, etc) from IBM punched cards? My dad was a programmer from the 70's through around the mid 2000's. In the early days, he had a surfeit of those things and he'd bring them home for my brother and me to color on. My mom made stuff with them.

Here is a thought. Remake Gilligan's Island with all of the same plots and such but this time with premise revised so that it is clearly all some type of experiment being conducted and eventually the castaways start to suspect that one of them is working for whomever is conducting the experiment.

Better yet, hint at a conspiracy during all of the first season, and only reveal, to the audience only, that gilligan is the one behind it during the season finale. :shock: :ugeek:

I would go for the twist ending. The build up seems to suggest it Gilligan until the final season, finally the Skipper, Prof and Mr. Howell confront him and kill him, then in the end it is revealed that it was actually Maryanne behind it all (or Mrs. Howell - depending on how you want to play it.)

Better yet, hint at a conspiracy during all of the first season, and only reveal, to the audience only, that gilligan is the one behind it during the season finale. :shock: :ugeek:


I would go for the twist ending. The build up seems to suggest it Gilligan until the final season, finally the Skipper, Prof and Mr. Howell confront him and kill him, then in the end it is revealed that it was actually Maryanne behind it all (or Mrs. Howell - depending on how you want to play it.)


You're all missing the point.

The whole meaning of Gilligan's Island, the fundamental premise the whole thing is based on, is that you will never leave the island while Gilligan is alive.

Of course you could make it a double twist and they kill Gilligan, get off the island, and then find out he was just an innocent dupe and someone else was behind it.

Good point, it does need a twist or why do it?

I'd go all surreal with it, is it real or not? Tease it a little. Reveal little by little that it might indeed be a dream.....

The viewpoint character is in extended adolescence refusing to grow up. Maybe he's having a fever dream, maybe he's on drugs. Maybe.....

Gilligan's been his friend since grade school, but now is a meth-cooking ne'er do well.

The Howell's are his neighbors.

The Professor is a friend of his parents who owns a company and is trying to offer him a job.

Mary Ann is someone he's been sweet on since college but never quite connected with, because she thinks he's still a little immature. They keep in touch.

Ginger is a tatoo'ed and pierced, hot but damaged chickie who's a barista at the coffee place near where he lives. She's 'available', comes on to him on occasion, but it sure wouldn't go anywhere meaningful.

'The Island' is him being trapped in the stagnation of his own life. He needs to realize what Gilligan is, ditch him, get the hell off the island without getting Ginger pregnant, so he can make a real life with Mary Ann.

Here’s one thing to keep in mind when you talk about Admiral Thomas C. Hart’s relief for political reasons.

Before his relief, the US Asiatic Fleet had not lost a single vessel. They had engaged in four battles, one of which was even a much-needed victory - Balikpapan. But not a single ship was lost.

Two weeks after he was relieved, 19 of 40 ships had slipped beneath the waves. Within ninety days of the start of WWII, the Asiatic Fleet had ceased to exist – and of that time, every ship was afloat for seventy of them.

We had some large format guillotine cutters made in Switzerland that were the same way. I'd occasionally go out while the operators were at break, get into the service menus, and switch them to Japanese. My humor was not appreciated.

Today, I learned:

Last year, on, 18 February, 2016, the Royal Air Force Search and Rescue Force was officially disbanded.
They provided around-the-clock aeronautical search and rescue cover in Cyprus and the Falkland Islands. Originally established in 1941 as the Air Sea Rescue, since aircrew who ditched over the English Channel had only a 20% chance of returning to their squadrons, the SARF evolved in 1986 to be helicopter-borne.
They had probably the best motto I’ve ever heard from a military force; not because of it being badass, but because it’s defiant in the effort of saving lives.

Don't want to necro the gun lube thread.

Needed to buy some oil for the lawnmower today. Picked up a jug of generic 10w-30 which is what Honda recommends. 5 quart jug should last me a year or two. Actually changing the oil was easy.. once I remembered how to do it. But that's true of many things you don't do often.

Anyway, while I was in the store I also bought a quart of 5w-20 Mobil 1 full synthetic. Not for my lawnmower. ;)

My wife has been sick with a cold for most of the last week, and generous person that she is she shared it with me. I feel like something that was shot at and missed, then shit at and hit.

The thing to use wasnt motot oil, but atf. But it stains, has an odor, and isnt non toxic. If your shopping at the auto parts store for gun oil, a better bet is "nyoil", they also sell it on Amazon. Frankly the best option according to the grant cunningham article, is Lubriplate FMO-350- AW, but that only comes in large quantities (Amazon only sells it in 4 packs of a gallon, for 140 dollars). Lubrikits.com sells it sub divided into smaller 4 oz containers for 9 bucks. They also sell a grease kit/oil combo for 17 bucks that pretyy much covers 99% of your gun lube needs.

I wonder if anybody has ever tried power steering fluid? It's synthetic with similar properties as ATF (since older PS systems used ATF), mostly colorless, and doesn't seem to stink.

Why bother? A gallon of fmo350aw is 25 bucks plus shipping on ebay.

Admittedly, you have the whole alaska problem, but the next time you're in an auto parts store, check to see if they have nyoil..

Why do I want something that stains, and is toxic?

Note, I also have knives and various other tools.

I use mineral oil on anything that has a chance to touch food - it's food grade, buy it in the laxative aisle at the store. But the mineral oil doesn't seem to be particularly great as a lubricant.

Yes. There's a lot of snake oil being sold these days as gun lube. You can buy a gallon of the fmo350aw off of eBay for 40 bucks, and unless you're an armorer or are named ,"Candyman" :mrgreen: it will be enough to last five lifetimes

Grant Cunningham, is a gunsmith who posted a couple of articles debunking miracle gun lube, what's cheap that works, and supposedly spoke with triboligists(oil engineers) before writing said articles. I don't know how true the last part is, but my limited knowledge of oil and grease(relatively speaking) makes my gut feeling that he's on the money.

Frankly the toxic issue is less of a concern than a staining issue do you plan on licking your pistol slide? At most it might be a skin irritant from incidental contact. The reason why motor oil is a bad idea, is they typically contain benzene, which causes oxidation issues.

When I'm sealing drawings for NYC, I like to play Soviet marching songs loudly, stamp the drawing angrily, and shout, "Nyet, tovarisch! Your request for food is denied!" 8-)

Warning flag here guys. Some of the comments are getting personal.


I'm not the one that locked it, but I don't disagree.

I tend to drop general warning flags as opposed to pinging individual members as I don't want such warnings to become a personal issue.
...even before I read MHI, my response to seeing a poster for the stars of the latest Twilight movies was "I see 2 targets and a collaborator".
