    No. He doesn't... so FEKKING... STOP!!!



    Steve, hopefully you come back after taking some time off to mentally reset and recharge.... and hopefully in that time people will start to listen and stop engaging with trolls who don't deserve to be engaged with.
    Agreed, except on the ignoring part. When monkeys start throwing shit, why should they get to have all the fun? Guilty pleasures.

    November in review,

    Logged back in this morning to see what I missed...

    Kyle Rittenhouse - 527 posts, the prosecution failed to meet it's burden and the jury acquitted him. He did it, and IMO it was a crime, but the prosecution was inept. Here, the usual suspects, and a few surprises, basically deified him and got their 2A winkies all stiff.

    Covid 19 - 173 posts, Omicron is here, the usual suspects continue to misrepresent what the vaccine was intended to do, how it's an evolving battle, and how people who are unvaccinated by choice are prolonging this for everyone else.

    Rambo is still only being quoted by 1, maybe 2 other members, yet the almost perfect silence has not deterred him in any way.

    Bike Life - asshole/criminals beat an 83 y/o man and there have been no arrests? Michelle Wu's Boston will be far too liberal for Rambo's most extreme characterization of me.

    Organized smash and grab looting - only exists because democrats???

    Garandman bought an elderly 4Runner and is throwing money at it like it's a boat...

    Joe Biden has a magic inflation lever in his office and he keeps pushing it up to personally create inflation.

    R7 always has cool projects and mad skills.

    It's clear we need a separate home improvement forum, no surer sing of this demographic aging.

    I put a deposit on a Suzuki GSX S1000-Gt and may see it in January. I expect it to be stupid fun for me and I am going to celebrate the 10th anniversary of my cross-country ride with a longer out-and-back tour this summer.

    I got a coronary calcium test that showed a lot more arterial blockage than anyone expected... diet changes, statin, daily BP monitoring, the joys of getting old.

    Enjoy December!

    I got a 50% raise to change careers and companies but there's no thread for it.

    I just wanted to be included.

    Re: The air just smells sweeter

    How are we all doing coming out of the holidays? Doesn't seem to be too well, a whole lot of arguing and bitching at each other in the usual threads. What are you getting out of it?

    Good fuckin' question! Probably the usual, "...oh, I got him good this time!" mindset. Still boring & predictable. Rinse & repeat, rinse & repeat.

    You're just gonna assume how the tire identifies? Not really PC bud, but you said it.

    Used to ice race with a dude who had an old limo. Had bolts through the tires instead of studs. Identified as snow, winter, studded, or whatever the hell they wanted. The thing was insane, minus having to inflate them before every run.

    I don't see it that way. There's a bit of that, but the crazy factor is way down. The Covid thread has a lot for all sides to think about.

    Also, it's really hard to argue and bitch alone, it generally requires two who are equally hip deep in it.

    Held air for about 20 minutes. Enough to complete a run.

    I tried putting sheet metal screws into the tread once. Thing was a leach until you got sideways, then it just ripped the screws out. Faster not to slide, but not anywhere near as much fun, so they went away.
