  1. Except of course there were no A-bombs, large or small in February 1945 ...
  2. "It's better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt ..."
  3. Handguns that are easy to rack - revolvers ...
  4. With US gun manufacturers declaring bankruptcy, don't expect any import restrictions on foreign milsurps to be loosened anytime soon. The manufacturers have fought against the importation of surplus weapons for years and will continue to do so. Also, what part of President Trump's trade policy would leave one to believe that he would make it easier to import foreign guns of any sort?
  5. https://advance.lexis.com/documentpage/?pdmfid=1000516&crid=1b784ee7-a625-4ff0-8e51-ce6a55e32df5&nodeid=ACCAAIAABADU&nodepath=%2FROOT%2FACC%2FACCAAI%2FACCAAIAAB%2FACCAAIAABADU&level=4&haschildren=&populated=false&title=55-8-198.+Citations+based+on+unmanned+traffic+enforcement+cameras.&config=025054JABlOTJjNmIyNi0wYjI0LTRjZGEtYWE5ZC0zNGFhOWNhMjFlNDgKAFBvZENhdGFsb2cDFQ14bX2GfyBTaI9WcPX5&pddocfullpath=%2Fshared%2Fdocument%2Fstatutes-legislation%2Furn%3AcontentItem%3A4WTC-MD20-R03M-82RK-00008-00&ecomp=h3t7kkk&prid=695aff7b-0cbb-4ee4-a50d-3216d1002b1c
  6. Nice setup. I used to do freshwater tanks, never tried a reef, it always looked like a lot more work than I was willing to put in one.
  7. According to the Tennessee Code it is. I've been throwing mine in the trash for years, typically I can recognize one by the envelope and address they send them in and I just toss them unopened ...
  8. I doubt if a TAWS system would have made any difference. According to the latest reports, radar tracking indicates he was in a 2000fpm descending left turn, which sounds to me like the classic "graveyard spiral", at that speed and rate of descent the time differential between the TAWS warning and impact would have been less than a second.
  9. Based on the video above, he apparently was in radar contact during the initial phase of the flight when he was approaching the Van Nuys and Burbank airspace. The comment about being "too low" was in response to the pilot's request for flight following, which means that he wanted the controllers to continue surveillance on his aircraft in the airspace outside the airport terminal areas he had been flying through earlier. At that point, his altitude was low enough that flight following wasn't possible. Also, following a crash, radar information can often be gleaned from a careful analysis of the tapes showing the area, in VFR conditions and airspace there will often be some targets which, although not initially identified by the controllers nevertheless were showing up on the radar sweeps. This is one possible explanation for why they were able to reconstruct any speed variance. Yes, but I don't think peejman was referring to "2300' above the terrain", just that an altitude of 2300' the chopper was above the surrounding terrain at that point. I haven't looked at any charts to see exactly what the terrain was, I can only surmise that he was in an area of low hills which had altitudes below his reported altitude of 2300' msl.
  10. ATC told him that he was too low for flight following, which means at the altitude he was flying his radar signature was either being lost in the ground clutter, or like a lot of ATC in congested areas, radar was only being provided at higher altitudes to prevent such loss. At no point in the transmission referenced did ATC warn him that he was "flying too low", in fact its doubtful that he was being seen on radar at all ( the controller asked him to "ident", which means to briefly boost the transmission of the onboard transponder to help identify specific traffic in a crowded environment) or, if he was seen, he had reported VFR conditions, which to the controller would mean that the pilot had sufficient visual references to see that for himself. Obviously, in retrospect, he was flying too low for the terrain, but nothing in that transmission would indicate that the controllers were concerned about his altitude during that time period.

    Tube TVs

    Thus, "essentially". Not much value in the materials of a single TV, or phone. Commercial recyclers operate on massive volumes of electronic scrap, single units are, as noted, "essentially worthless" ...

    Tube TVs

    Not really. When's the last time you saw anybody looking for one of these? There have been hundreds of millions of these old TV's scrapped in the last 20 years or so, and many of them were not capable of receiving the digital signals of today. It's roughly analogous to the old analog telephones, millions were made and they have no use today, therefore they are essentially worthless ...
  13. If its mini-mags you're interested in, Ammomen just posted an ad for a 5k round case with free shipping for $299.45 https://kem-worx-dba-ammomen.ammoreadycloud.com/products/ammo-cci-0031-3346
  14. If the house has central heat and air, with duct work under the floors, leaving the insulation off is the easiest solution. Modern theory is to include the crawlspace as part of the conditioned area of the house, as such the outer walls are often insulated with rigid insulation, not fiberglass batts. They will typically put some sort of vapor barrier under the floors to guard against moisture. In older homes, this isn't practical, so the next best solution is a properly vented crawlspace with no subfloor insulation. This will prevent moisture accumulation such as you described.
  15. Being gmail, its almost certainly untraceable. The google account is probably tied to a burner phone, the money disappears as fast as its transferred. Google pay and related online services are fast becoming the internet equivalent to the old Western Union wire transfers, the preferred method of scammers. While I'm sympathetic to your plight, the very nature of these accounts makes them virtually impossible to track ...
  16. Drove my Dad's hand-me-down '72 Dodge LWB work truck at first, rust and all. In 1977 I bought my first car, a one year old Plymouth Fury Sport 2d HT.
  17. A lot of the trade in metals is done "off the books", and in cash only. People have differing reasons for this, at least some of it is due to tax issues. When I was most active in trading "junk" silver (older US coins with silver content, whose collectible value is equal to or less than their melt value) the internet as we know it now did not exist. At that time you traded mostly at coin, stamp and other collectible shows which operated much like gunshows. There were also known area dealers in metals, coins and other such commodities, most of that was done word of mouth. With junk silver, we traded mostly in "bags", which was by definition $1000 face value, i.e. 10k dimes, 4k quarters, 2k half-dollars, etc. The price of a bag of junk silver varied daily by the spot silver price, you had to know both that and the percentage of pure silver contained in each type of coin to correctly price a bag for either buying or selling. As with other things, the internet has made both pricing and marketing easier, with instant nationwide, or even worldwide exposure.
  18. There's some validity to using metals as a hedge against inflation, but speculating in metals as a source of investment returns is suspect at best. The metals markets tend to be highly volatile, and often act irrationally. Historically, investing in metals long term has been a disaster, at least in comparison to things like stocks and bonds. Sure, there have been some short-term periods in which fortunes have been made in metals speculation, there have been many more in which fortunes have been lost. Coin collecting is an entirely different subject, where intrinsic value often has little to do with market pricing. However, in the last few decades, collectible coins have also been victims of "irrational exuberance", to use Alan Greenspan's famous term, for an example see the insane run-up (and subsequent crash) of Morgan dollars in the 80's ...
  19. It's kind of hard for me to get overly worked up about a bill that's not yet filed, by a legislature not yet sworn in, in a state in which I don't live ...
  20. Since I couldn't tell if you were being facetious or not, I decided to stop being so lazy and look it up myself. I found a lot of references to some proposed gun bills, and a lot of "the sky is falling" type remarks on the tinfoil hat type sites that I never read. Looks like whatever was being proposed has been weakened or abandoned now ...
  21. Especially when they send them off with a flintlock ...
  22. So what's going on in Virginia that's got you so paranoid?
