Re: Hot water tied to air conditioner

So Greg, do you have a desuperheater unit for the air conditioner tied into the water heater? System looks like this? (Image) If so it sounds like someone got cheap with the ground coils (too short) or if you have an above ground unit try cleaning the coils and make sure it is shaded. Interesting. ...

Re: 12-04-2008 - LARGO!

"Prius" means "before", but as an adjective, adverb, or a noun. "Prius vestis" works out to be something like "previous clothing". Alternatively, it can go with "Nex" ("Nex prius" - word order in Latin is flexible), which would make it something like "Earlier death". Either way, it doesn't make much...

Re: 12-04-2008 - LARGO!

The word "violent" is just there to signal that it isn't a death by natural causes. There are different words for "death" in Latin. "Mors" can imply any sort of death. "Nex" implies a death by hands of others. Sort of like the difference between "kill" and "murder" in English. Cancer can kill you, b...

Re: US makes Selling Mature games to Minors a class E felony

Most states cover it under providing obscene material to a minor. What is obscene to give to a minor is not necessarily obscene for an adult to possess. This makes sense. On the other hand, any law that is based on the ESRB rating of the game is idiocy. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the ESRB rating ...

Men can watch incredibly gory movies filled with blood with absolutely no problem. Want to make a man squeamish? Mention a woman's period :lol: I think, thats a case of movies vs reality for a lot of people. I'm not sure, though. I have never actually had any problems feeling detached from the topi...

Re: May 29 - Convention autograph

Besides, Have ever seen a maxi pad before? It would take serious work to make anything semi-legible on one. Besides, unless you have one hell of a scrapbook, it's gonna look pretty strange just hanging on a wall or something. I've seen pads. I have no idea if any of them were maxi pads, but yeah, I...

Re: May 29 - Convention autograph

Am I the only one who doesn't see a problem with using a pad as something to be signed? I mean, it's not a used one, and hopefully one that isn't intended to be used after the signing. As such, is it really any different than signing a piece of paper?

[quote="Martin Blank";p="735336"]Bzzt. Wrong.

All you need for that kind of force projection is a relatively small strike force that is capable of putting hurt on anyone, anywhere, at any time. Current US offensive capability - Completely level a small country in 24hr. And I'm not even talking about nuclear capability. US got enough of that stu...

I suppose, you can get to the point where there will be just a fine mist/vapor mixture all the way from ground and up to where you'd normally have the cloud layer, essentially, turning entire atmosphere into a very thick cloud, but that would take up a very significant increase in temperature. If th...

Come to think of it, why am I arguing with you? My initial point was that besides China, there is no real threat to the US even if it cuts its offensive capability completely. The fact that you show that China wouldn't be capable of expanding actually only helps my point.
