Are you a jerk with a propensity for power trips? 

Anecdotal, but in my experience these seem to be prerequisites for COs.

I'm still in the extra stall in the garage but a barn will be in the works in the next year or so. 

I do play guitars; if I really wanted to change it all I could've said I wanted to be a luthier, but as of yet anything like an acoustic guitar is well above my skill/patience level. I'm in the market for a new electric bass though and the plan is to build one rather than buy one. Anyway, all my guitars laying around was the impetus for the rack, and it turned out well enough that I think I could sell a few of them. I'd upload a picture but I've tried like 5 times and this glorious website has told me NO each time.

Funny this question comes up. I'm in the early stages of starting my own business in wood working. Smaller furniture (desks, end tables, etc.), end grain cutting and serving boards, guitar racks and eventually (hopefully) electric guitars & basses. 

Working on building some stock and a website to sell it through. 

Going to be a slow go since my day job isn't going away anytime soon, but having a lot of fun so far. 

03/13/2019 - 11:13am OP- I'm also in west…

OP- I'm also in west Michigan; depending on your location/elevation, you might want to check out freedomnet or michwave for internet. They're not the fastest, and they're not the cheapest, but they are unlimited. 

They're both the same technology, just different companies each with their own towers. Freedomnet has been $5/mo cheaper, but I can only get line of sight (which you need with microwave signal) with michwave. 

I have the second-tier package for $65/mo and am streaming Hulu live with no issues. All said and done, I'm at $110/mo for both with dvr and some ala carte channels. Wouldn't be enormous savings for you, but being month to month is very nice. 

Like I say, internet speeds aren't going to knock your socks off, but unless you're a heavy online gamer, I doubt you'll have any issues. I'd love 100mbps, but michwave is literally the ONLY option for me besides satellite or cellular. 

Anyway, might be worth investigating in your case. 

03/12/2019 - 4:10pm There's hype around the…

There's hype around the glass electrolyte batteries but so far that seems like all it is- hype. If they're feasible on a large scale they will eventually come around because mining lithium is a dirty business and is a major rate limiting factor to battery/EV technology, but any kind of commercial production is a long way off. 

I'm skeptical that our energy infrastructure can handle what would happen if even half of our passenger cars went electric; fast charging and long range is great, but that energy still has to come from somewhere. Windmills, wave generators and solar panels aren't going to cut it. The only thing close is nuclear and we've effectively scared people off of that path. 

This is not me poo-pooing the idea of EVs, I think problems like this are a great opportunity for innovation and enterprise, as long as the government keeps their nose out of it. I'm excited to see what we come up with.

I don't care. Tim might want to look into some conditioning issues if his boys keep getting hurt in February and March, but I hope whatever poor soul they put out there slaps the floor a lot and loses by double digits.

No offsides is pretty fun for 3's, but I wouldn't want to give it up for real 5 on 5 hockey. Too many bodies to cover, too much offensive advantage and opportunities to impede defensemen. 

I like dominant defense and shutouts. 2-1 is a real hockey score. 9-7 is bullshit hipster fake Crosby hockey. 

I do like the wider blueline idea though.

Don't look now, and like Brian I don't want to skip over March, but if Iggy isn't one and done the talent coming back for next year's team is absolutely nuckin' futz.

While there is a lot of SEC & ACC love going around, I don't think too many talking heads have fallen off the B1G wagon either. If M wins out through the tournament, they'll tack on some pretty big wins to an already impressive record. I'd almost go so far as to guarantee a 1 seed. 

03/03/2019 - 9:49pm Not gonna lie, I thought his…

Not gonna lie, I thought his Nebraska game was due to lack of interest from opposing parties and really expected Castleton to shrink against better competition, but he really held up well. Now if we just had a backup for Z, a reliable 2nd big makes this team full-on "we had subs" crazy.

I only scramble for the kids in which case, who gives a shit. The correct preparation however is poaching. No fatty oils, no sticking to your garbage cookware

How sad that an entire generation will grow up without Behind The Music...

Then again, Behind The Music for the new generation will pretty much be: "So then I took a hit off my Juul, opened up a new midi pack for EzDrummer and a couple of the samples just took the beat to a whole new level."

Holy shit. If it brings faux mo to tears, I don't know if the average mortal can handle it.

Two hour delay. Then as we got out on our way to daycare (where they catch the bus), it was vastly improved. Just a little wet. That's when I got the text that school was cancelled.

Never smoked a belly before but it won't be the last. Next time I won't trim off so much fat; it rendered a lot better than I expected. Also I cooked at 275 and overcooked a handful of them. I could have run them at 225 and they still would have been done in plenty of time.

Pork belly burnt ends. Waaaay too many leftovers. Also a two hearted with a born on date of 4/26 2014. Honestly not that bad.
