Tycho is the kind of music that everyone should listen to when they are driving to work in the morning.

I saw him in concert recently and it was honestly pretty weird trying to dance to the music I make dinner to every night. Great show though

Owls have a tiny brain and lots of sharp bits. They are a bag of reflexes which can't help but chase anything small and furry. They can't stop themselves. If you have hair (name checks out), you might consider wearing a ball cap or something.

I read a (true) story once about a park ranger, who took a walk at dawn while he was wearing a fur hat. It was in this book. Anyway, it was a bad choice. He was killed by a great horned owl. (You can bleed to death from your scalp, but of course he was exceptionally unlucky, and maybe his park was pretty remote from medical help.)

I've heard of people being blinded by owls, too, but it's very rare. There was a tragic case in (I think) Saskatchewan decades ago where a zoology student was blinded by an owl, either a great horned or a great grey.

Long time ago I saw a presentation by an ornithologist. When they're banding baby owls, they wait for mom to leave the nest, and then they get 'er done quickly, wearing a hard hat and enclosed safety goggles. He nonetheless had a picture of himself with blood pouring out of a head wound when momma came home early.

If it were to happen again, you might think of finding another route until she settles down. But it's your call.

Wow, an owl apologist. Really insensitive to say that stuff here.

Why not put Odell back there when you need one spark to possibly win the game. Instead some no name fumbles the game away.

Because you don’t want one of your best players to get injured week one

I don't understand this line of thinking at all. You can get hurt on any play you are on the field, so instead of using our most talented player to try and win we keep him on the sidelines so he doesn't get hurt one play instead he can get hurt on the very next play.

It’s probably tied to the exchange ratio. 163.20 is right about $125 USD right now.

Eh. He may have been joking but I don't think disliking a pop song puts you in /r/lewronggeneration territory. Shit, I dislike most pop but that's a cross-generational dislike, one not exclusive to Cyrus.

For a beginner start with an electric smoker. You can get into it and make some great food without spending too much. Once you are into the hobby you can look into offsets or pellet smokers.

Charcoal is always going to be superior to get good tasting bbq, I would definitely recommend a charcoal barrel smoker over an electric.

I second that question!

Update:

Some awesome responses , thanks. Sounds like buying a smoker is something to consider.

Consensus is around the Kamado Joe over the Big Green Egg for a few people and one vote for the Primo XL.

Thanks again.

The 18.5” Weber Smokey Mountain is a great intro smoker and can be had for around $150 on Craigslist. It’s really easy to get to a desired temperature and keep it there for hours without touching it.

This. Why do we need to resort to pseudoscience when there are actual evidence based practitioners for the same issues?

Because insurance covers the chiropractor but not a massage therapist

Probably using the transmission on the bike engine. They're technically sequential and can shift without touching the clutch. They can shift even faster by utilizing a quick shifter module.

Only downside is no reverse, although sometimes they just use the starter motor

I wonder if he is intentionally flipping the camera off? The gesture started in the late 1800s so it's possible.

Subs like this have convinced me to stop eating mammals. I’m not like a dick about it so if I’m at my friends house I will eat bacon offered to me but I’m actively avoiding buying cow and pig meat.

All you who hate jury duty, I have magic words for you. Mention "jury nullification" and the prosecution will move to have you removed

People who game the system to get out of jury duty deserve to have unjust charges brought against them with a jury full of idiots.

Jury duty is a civic obligation, not something to pretend to be crazy to get out of.

I’m not going to move out of the way for you on the El until the train stops. I’m going to fall if I let go of the railing to move for you

I’m guessing you’re looking at buying one and want to get a PPI. I’d recommend finding an independent European shop rather than a dealer, they’re much more experienced with older models than dealers are.

Hey, Glassbil123, just a quick heads-up:
alot is actually spelled a lot. You can remember it by it is one lot, 'a lot'.

Why can’t this bot be a pm rather than a comment? I see no point in having the message be public.

Do you find the playa dust is fine enough particles to penetrate and contaminate fluids in transmissions, transfer cases, differentials, coolant system, etc? Or are you talking more along the lines of make sure you haven’t missed any regular maintenance intervals and your coolant hasn’t turned to tomato soup?

Dust shouldn’t ever make it into fluids, but I would add on top of OP’s recommendation that you should replace your engine and cabin filters before heading out onto the playa

You probably just need to move the striker. Wouldn't hurt to lube up the latch as well. There are better things but wd-40 will do fine.

They’re getting ready to sell it unfortunately (hey, if anyone happens to be interested, let me know). I’ve always appreciated the design of the house and would’ve loved to been able to furnish it myself with mid century/period appropriate furniture. I can only imagine what it would look like with some beautiful mid century pieces!

Do you know what range they plan on listing it at?

Nope, everything is designed to take the added on/off cycles. For example the starter is bigger to endure the added stress. Also, start stop is only a short interval, so everything stays lubricated during a red light.

But in the end, only time will tell.

Lubricated and warm. Heat cycles are a big cause of engine wear.
