  1. You should probably advertise in the electrical engineering forum, because that's got nothing at all to do with environmental engineering.
  2. RIP Tom Petty

  3. Flat Earthers

    TIME magazine: Rapper B.o.B. Has Started a GoFundMe Campaign to Prove That the Earth Is Flat Twitter Ads info and privacy In 2016, the rapper, whose real name is Bobby Ray Simmons, dropped a diss track on astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, after Tyson tried to convince himthat the Earth is, in fact, round. "Neil Tyson need to loosen up his vest/ They’ll probably write that man one hell of a check," read one line from B.o.B.'s track,"Flatline." For his part, Tyson clapped back with a scientific explanation, and dropped his mic on national television to demonstrate gravity. The view that Planet Earth is a flat disc, as opposed to a globular-shaped spheroid, has been amplified in recent years by celebrity endorsements, reports CNN. Apart from B.o.B., high-profile flat-Earthers include Tila Tequila, NFL player Sammy Watkins and NBA star Kyrie Irving. (However, it turns out Irving could be just trolling everyone with his professed belief in a flat Earth.)
  4. sprinklers...

    I'd be super careful doing anything with an air compressor and irrigation piping, especially a commercial high-CFM model.. If for some reason the piping gets blocked, you can very quickly exceed the pressure rating of the pipe and blow a fitting or burst the pipe. You don't need to get all the water out of a pipe system to prevent freeze breakage - you really only need to create some space for the ice to expand into as it forms. So leaving some water in pipe bellies should be OK.

    Isn't most lawn irrigation piping made out of HDPE? If so, that stuff can handle being frozen full of water. Trust me on that... but yeah, probably a better idea to blow it out.
  6. They said "exclusively" available on CBS Super Duper Ultra or whatever. Plus, that is what the buzz has been all along about this show - you have to pay to watch.
  7. Movie thread

    I took the family to see The Lego Ninjago Movie this weekend. I was not expecting much because of the bad reviews, and I was pleasantly surprised that it was still pretty decent, much better than the average animated kid's movie but not quite on a par with The Lego Batman movie, which itself was several notches behind the original The Lego Movie. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and there were some really fun sequences and ideas, but in the end it just seemed to have gotten a little less attention from the story writers than the first two. But definitely not as bad as the 45% or whatever that it is getting on Rotten Tomatoes.
  8. I watched it. It was OK, but not to the point that I felt like I was willing to go off and subscribe to CBS online for the rest of it. I have now seen the first 3 episodes of The Orville, though. Not as terrible as I had been led to believe, but kind of odd - like they're trying to make a realTrek-type sci fi show, but with Seth McFarlane jokes and crudities scattered randomly throughout. I think it would have been more enjoyable if it had just been over-the-top McFarlane. As it is, it's just sort of jarring to be watching a reasonable 1990s-style Trek story and then have one of the main characters suddenly call someone a Dick. I'll keep watching, though.
  9. I'm not affected, but my stuff was stolen in the USgov hack a couple years back anyway. I think we're all pretty much compromised these days.
  10. Fudgey's Sister?

    Just confirmed it: poo does come out of my ying yang, so I assume it would come out of hers, too.
  11. Fudgey's Sister?

    I'd look up ying yang to make sure I had the rigth part but I'm afraid of IT.
  12. Fudgey's Sister?

    And keeping the old ying yang free of hair.
  13. So...it's been a while...

    Hey @jmbeck! Yeah, I am still around. Moved to the mainland a couple years ago, sort of (not Lower 48 though!)
  14. Fudgey's Sister?

    The article says she brings her own toilet paper. I wonder if she really takes the time to get clean, or just one wipe and go?
