    It's really those 'wet farts' you gotta watch out for....

    Dang....we didn't get a drop here. Drier than a fart. I don't see why you couldn't use that sleeve material to protect a coil wire. Should work dandy. Got a good bit of engine work done the last few days. The main bearings are done and end play is adjusted. Cam gear and distributor gear have been heated to temp on a hot plate and installed. Case modifications are mostly complete too. Lots of drilling and tapping for plugs in the oil gallery.

  10. Stop Me if You've Heard This One..

    NO HR Number related to such a Act but it does sound like something they would try. LOL SNOPES has been known to Fib at times. Don't be using them for a Definitive Truth.

  12. The "Americans with No Abilities Act" (ANAA) The Senate is considering a sweeping legislative Bill sponsored by the Democrat Party, that will provide new benefits for many more Americans. The "Americans With No Abilities Act," is being hailed as a major legislative goal by advocates of the millions of Americans who lack any real skills and ambition. "Roughly 50 percent of Americans do not possess the competence and drive necessary to carve out a meaningful role for themselves in society," said California Sen. Barbara Boxer. "We can no longer stand by and allow People of Inability (POI) to be ridiculed and passed over. With this legislation, employers will no longer be able to grant special favors to a small group of workers, simply because they have some idea of what they are doing." In a Capitol Hill press conference, Nancy Pelosi pointed to the success of the U.S. Postal Service, which has a long-standing policy of providing opportunity without regard to performance. At the state government level, the Department of Motor Vehicles also has an excellent record of hiring Persons with No Ability (63%). Under the Americans With No Abilities Act, more than 25 million mid-level positions will be created, with important-sounding titles, but little real responsibility, thus providing an illusory sense of purpose and performance. Mandatory non-performance-based raises and promotions will be given to guarantee upward mobility for even the most unremarkable employees. The legislation provides substantial tax breaks to corporations that promote a significant number of Persons of Inability (POI) into middle-management positions, and give a tax credit to small and medium-sized businesses that agree to hire one clueless worker for every two talented hires. Finally, the Americans With No Abilities Act contains tough new measures to make it more difficult to discriminate against the non-abled, banning, for example, discriminatory hiring interview questions such as, "Do you have any skills or experience that relate to this job?" "As a non-abled person, I can't be expected to keep up with people who have something going for them," said Mary Lou Gertz, who lost her position as a lug-nut twister at the GM plant in Flint, Mich., due to her inability to remember “righty tighty, lefty loosey”. "This new law should be real good for people like me. I'll finally have job security." With the passage of this bill, Gertz and millions of other untalented citizens will finally see a light at the end of the tunnel. Said Sen. Dick Durbin, "As a Senator with no abilities, I believe the same privileges that elected officials enjoy, ought to be extended to every American with no abilities. It is our duty as lawmakers to provide each and every American citizen, regardless of his or her inadequacy, with some sort of space to take up in this great nation, and a good salary for doing so." This ANAA, is backed by Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Diane Feinstein, Barbara Boxer, Nancy Pelosi, Fredrika Wilson, and Maxine Waters.
  13. Morlock, Love AMS Meteors, their website is great too. I always find myself checking it a few times a week to see if there are any big fireballs across the U.S. Just a couple days ago there was a bright daytime fireball in New York!
  14. Found a cool app on Google Play called AMS Meteor. American Meteor Society. I would imagine you can get it at the Apple App Store also. Just loaded with useful information for the night sky watcher. Wish I had this when I was out west. Not much use here in the big city with all the light pollution.
  15. Monster Mods

    I got a $15 Grado super high quality adapter,same issue. I also cut the 1/4 plug from my headphones and soldered an 1/8 plug to them same issue. It has to be my headphones, they work fine on the GB2. Something with the switch on them and wiring that the monster doesnt like, I'll try soldering a different 1/8 jack tonight but I bet I get the same issue. Its not the monster because my Grado 32 ohm headphones with 1/8 plug work without the monster external speaker sounding, but because of the 32 ohm capacity the signals sound washed out and muffled. Looking online at 150 and 250 ohm DJ headphones, they have 1/8 plugs, but super expensive,only found one pair under $150. But good sound can make athe difference between a find and not. Maybe an electronics guru on here knows why my headphones are doing this, I am willing to open them up and experiment with wiring.

    I still think it's a 'mis-matched' plug and jack. First you gotta make sure that the 1/8" inch plug is exactly the same as the one on the supplied headphones. If they are, then you know for sure that the problem is at the 1/4" side. Your headphones worked good on your other detectors right? I wouldn't modify or change them if you don't have to. Like the others have said, the 1/4" plug is probably not going in far enough into the jack. I had a similar issue when I was trying to make a sturdier adaptor for my SDC. I ended up going to Guitar Center and found a high quality 1/4" jack on another style adaptor. It cost $10 but was worth it. I had to cut the 1/4" jack off the purchased adaptor and solder it onto my SDC set-up. Haven't had one issue yet. Trouble is, most inexpensive items commonly found today are made overseas. They just don't have the quality or consistancy we are looking for. The one I got from Guitar Center was probably also made overseas, but it is made of metal and could be threaded apart for soldering to the new wire. I tried several different jacks from Amazon and Ebay and they all went in the trash. Sorry I don't have a more definitive answer for you. Don't settle for less, you'll eventually get the right combination. Good Luck Luke
  17. Neither can I. I just hope they don't encounter any issues like they did on the Hubble. This project seems a lot more complex and fragile which means more can go wrong. Keeping my fingers crossed. I also hope this last just as long as the Hubble, if not more and not the projected 5-10 years.
  18. Monster Mods

    Well that wasnt it, my jack was metal at the base so could not easily make it longer. I tried another adapter with a slightly longer jack and got the same issue. Turns out it is my headphones, I have Grey Ghost Ultimates, they have a switch on them for VLF or PI detectors, in one switch position my headphones work but the monster external speaker sounds off too, in the other switch position the external speaker does not sound off but I can just barely hear sounds through my headphones, even at full volume on the detector and headphones.Kind of frustrating! Does anyone know of 150ohm headphones with an 1/8 jack? What are you other guys using for headphones that dont have this issue? Is everyone using the supplied headphones or just living with the external speaker sounding with headphones? I really dont like it...
  19. Hi I'm new here, I was wondering if someone could help me identify this rock. I found it in Alberta mixed in with a bunch of sandstone in the middle of a pasture that we were plowing under. Thought it looked out of place. Thanks
  20. Another oddball?

    That should be guide to Vermont not NH. Sorry about that.

    Yea, not the first time that's happened. Good News and Bad. Good News. It rained like Ell north of us last night we need the water in the Aquifer. Bad News. Wicked Wanda the Wonder Wife couldn't get to work last night because of it. Roads impassable . Good News. Sense the Roads are messed up I may get one of my projects done today. Bad News. USPS Tracking says I have a Package in the Mail Box and I really don't feel like walking through the puddles. Good News. Boiling some Pork Rigs and sure smell good. Going on the grill for dinner here in a few minutes. Ordered another Mega2560 for My Collection. My excuse was it's a back up for yours. They have a 32bit I'm thinking of one of those SOME DAY things. More Bits and Bobs for my collection and some larger Sleeving . Most this is for my detector build in the works. ** Come to think about it some of that Expandable SLeeve would be good protection on Coil wires, eaa?

  22. Where does gold come from? with AZ Nugget Bob...

    Can't wait for the results from the James Webb Telescope and Assuming we can believe the results from the Advanced Space-borne Thermal Emissions and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) satellite. It has much better technology and has little distortion than our land based sensors because of the atmosphere. Assuming Neutron stars are the source based on what we just witnessed from many land based telescopes that knew of and where watching and waiting for the collision. Is the gold traveling near the speed of light? and if so how long will it take to get here if we just saw the collision between the Neutron stars. AzNuggetBob
  23. I agree with you the numbers are dubious at best. But if one teaspoon from them weighs over one billion tons, no doubt vast quantities of gold and platinum were produced. Even if it wasn't equal to the mass of 100 suns.
  24. I think that article is a bit misleading. They detected neutron stars colliding, and then theorized that much, much gold was created. I actually can believe that, but what I can't believe is the articles about the octillions in gold created https://www.forbes.com/sites/samlemonick/2017/10/16/stars-collided-to-make-your-gold/#67a616132efb (May be the first article, I read this in a few places.) People using science to their own ends is not limited to global warming. Certainly makes Forbes point to say a lot of money in gold. I really don't think we have an instrument that can tell the elemental makeup of a single star 130 million light years away, so to claim we detected it before, during and after, I doubt that. To my middle school math education, it seems logical it did occur, but I don't think we had a spectrometer focused on that single star so, so far away.

    The Costco Doctor One day, in line at the company cafeteria, Joe says to Mike behind him, "My elbow hurts like heck.I guss I'd better see a doctor." Listen, you don't have to spend that kind of money," Mike replies. "There's a diagnostic computer down at Costco. Just give it a urine sample, and the computer will tell you what's wrong and what to do about it. It takes ten seconds and costs ten dollars - a lot cheaper than a doctor." So, Joe deposits a urine sample in a small jar and takes it to Costco. He deposits ten dollars and the computer lights up and asks for the urine sample He pours the sample into the slot and waits. Ten seconds later, the computer ejects a printout: You have tennis elbow. Soak your arm in warm water and avoid heavy activity. It will improve in two weeks. Thank you for shopping @ Costco. That evening, while thinking how amazing this new technology was, Joe began wondering if the computer could be fooled. He mixed some tap water, a stool sample from his dog, urine samples from his wife and daughter, and a sperm sample from himself for good measure. Joe hurries back to Costco, eager to check the results. He deposits ten dollars, pours in his concoction, and awaits the results. The computer prints the following: 1. Your tap water is too hard. Get a water softener. (Aisle 9) 2. Your dog has ringworm. Bathe him with anti-fungal shampoo. (Aisle 7) 3. Your daughter has a cocaine habit. Get her into rehab. 4. Your wife is pregnant. Twins. They aren't yours. Get a lawyer. 5. If you don't stop playing with yourself, your elbow will never get better! Thank you for shopping @ Costco!
