perspectives?

My overall sense of this whole thread is that most of it is overreaction to a senseless act against nature. Yes, cruel, but there are far worse crimes against nature (humanity) that are legal and...

I guess I'm a new age old timer

I rarely use cash. Maybe 6 times a year, if that. Everything I buy, I use a credit card or phone/watch (ApplePay) to pay. The main reasons are two. It's a lot quicker and I get cash back (2% to...

multiple lanes

Actually, multiple lanes to get through a light with a later merge do, in fact, increase flow through the light since too many people are too slow to get moving when a light turns green. The merge...

cheap fix

Maybe there should be a yellow line set back a bit from the road and a sign for pedestrians to "Stand behind Yellow Line and wait for crossing light".

missed the point

....... or have a green light when you shouldn't stop. The light being dark (when not red) just looks like it's broken, requiring drivers to stop for a normal non-light-controlled crosswalk.

Let's not lump all together

Data shows that nearly 2/3 of gun deaths in the US are suicides. Of the remaining 1/3, many of those are defensive and/or police actions. So for anyone trying to sell 40,000 gun deaths as the key...

better views

Nice shot. It's actually better to photograph the moon at any point other than full since there is no crater detail (shadows) at full. The best shot would be near sliver of a moon where the rest of...

Tablo DVR streaming

I've tried most of the solutions over the years and have finally found my ideal solution for streaming my local OTA channels (28 channels in central MA) to my island house which has DSL.

Agreed

Agreed. This is one of the best forums I visit on the web. Well run, and full of great "entertainment" and information. We are truly fortunate for the efforts of our Webmaster.

We must be close in age because I did the same things! And I used to hitchhike to the local slot car track.

Love Lowes

Not only does Lowe’s give me the no-fuss veteran discount (I have my Mil status applied to my Lowe’s account), my local Lowe’s has three Veteran-Only reserved parking spaces close to store!

Depends on town

Generally certainly true, but it really depends on which towns in NH and MA you own property in. They vary very significantly town to town. I pay more for property tax in MA than I do in NH and the...

I've owned both

I bought a 25' Bennington 2575RL tritoon with a 130hp Honda in 2001. It was a fantastic boat and would buy another Bennington. I did have a problem with one of the welds on the log which appeared...

Yep

Yep, that, by definition, means the law is CONFUSING. i.e., it's not clear to all. Even if I do agree with Woodsy's definition, it could be interpreted as above. And, apparently, the MP do not...
