    Bitcoin - Anyone Investing?

    Oh and I got in in February, supposedly after the great fall.

    Bitcoin - Anyone Investing?

    I'm down 90% overall. I only bought Bitcoin to purchase other crypto currencies. All of them have dropped more than Bitcoin, so I guess I would have been better off to keep in BTC and only lose 65% (or to stick under the mattress). Lesson learned I guess.

    Wood for bbq

    Spatchcocked turkey was perfect. Cooked in 2.5 hrs. Skin was crunchy, not rubber and everything was juicy. The only way to go. We've done brisket a couple times and both were awsome. Sounds like we got lucky.

    Wood for bbq

    Get the fire started with a charcoal chimney then use the wood for smoke. I have an Oklahoma Joes with the fire box, charcoal and propane barrels. Best $300 ever spent at Lowes.

    Wood for bbq

    We are responsible for the turkey and ham this year again. We have smoked them both in the past and gotten mixed results. The wife is going to spatchcock (sp?) the turkey to try to get the cooking time down and leave the skin crunchy. I think we are going to use the wood from some barren peach trees i cut down this year. Fingers are crossed.

    Ski Season is Around the Corner!

    I tried a snowboard last year for the first time and LOATHED it. So much work and you spend half the time sitting on the wet snow. Just did it because my youngest wanted to learn. Hope I don't have to do that again.

    no lifts = no thank you We went to Breckenridge last year and really liked it. We have always skied somewhere in Colorado, but are thinking of going to Big Sky this spring.
  8. We are watching Jack Ryan via Vidangel. takes all the stuff out kiddos don't need to hear. We are really liking it. I watched 3:10 to Yuma again and the new Magnificent 7. Yuma was still good. Meh for Magnificent 7. Denzel just isn't that great.

    Pot meet Kettle

    As Dleg said, mob mentality is my problem with this. People with pitchforks and torches are rarely thinking rationally. Yes, ANYONE that actually abuses or harasses someone else should be punished according to the severity of their infractions, but what we have seen over the last year (peoples lives ruined because of a twitter accusation) is wrong.

    Pot meet Kettle

    How does that work? A lesbo turned on by a gay dude. I dare say she is confused.
  12. My Physics 1 prof said that if you don't like something in that course or at least find it interesting, you need to be something other than an engineer. That probably wouldn't apply to chemical though. Dont feel bad about not fully comprehending some courses though. I never did understand Calc 2, electromagnetics or signals and I graduated with a 3.8 EE.

    Movie thread

    Quiet Place: The wife, I and our 14 year old loved it. Probably too scary for the 9 yr old though. Nice to watch something that wasn't a sucky sequel for a change. Dr. Strange: MEH. Another Marvel movie Transformers: The Last Knight: I watched this for the boys sake. The dialog was horrible, the plot was all over the place and of course they set it up for yet another movie. I pray it doesnt get funded.

    Countdown to Star Wars

    #metoo. I loved the originals. Tolerated the 2nd 3, but hate 7 and 8. I can't help but see the similarities between these and the originals. Its like they are telling the same story again with better graphics and worse acting. Put some effort into this guys. I know they don't have to in order to make a half billion dollars, but it would be nice if they at least tried to veer from what has already been done. That said, Rogue One was pretty darn good. I waited several months to see 8, havent seen Solo yet and am not even interested in seeing whatever vomit they are going to spew out for 9.

    Who here rides motorcycles?

    Had a Prowler Yellow Suzuki GS 500 many moons ago. I think about getting another bike again every now and then, but all the negatives outweigh the few positives i can come up with.
