No, Korg was probably on the other half the ship, along with Miek and Valkyrie and the other half of the spared Asgardians.

But wasn't that ship blown up after Thanos and crew left? When The Guardians arrived, there was just debris and bodies floating around.

Having a set of Res Caps makes the process even cleaner/easier.

Plus, you can really shake the hell out of the piece & move the liquid/salt where you need it with them on.

Granted, I haven't combusted in years, but they work just as well for oil or vape residue.

I like toilet paper. That way I can then use it to wipe down my sink which inevitably gets dirty alcohol dripped on it when cleaning the bowl and downstem.

Not sure why you got the downvotes. I read your comment and planned to do it buuuuuut we weren’t really in the mood after this happened 20 damn miles from home. It probably would’ve been the best time to do it.

Looks like the Cajon Pass. You can always count on the pass to show you if you have any weak links in your set-up. Especially on a hot day.

I ended up following the Bella Coco tutorial. It took quite a while to get the square going. I probably spent 10 hours on it before I finally found a groove. After I finished it I thought, "I could do better, let's try it again." The square on the left was the first. I'm not sure I did much better on the second so I gave her both.

In the end, she seemed to really like them. Thanks again everyone who offered help.

My girlfriend's birthday is this Sunday and I thought I'd make her a granny square as a gift. She's been exchanging granny squares for a while and really seems to enjoy receiving them.

Like the title states, I have never crocheted before (I've never even touched a hook). Am I reaching too far or is this possible? Any advice about what pattern to use or materials to get? Thanks for the input.

Thanks everyone, I appreciate the help and encouragement. I'll post the results when I'm done.

You know they sell "pizzles" for dogs that are literally a dried bulls penis.

Those don't last 10 minutes with my big dog.

I'm in the process of installing a projector at my work. We want to be able to watch television via cable and also watch videos via a raspberry pi. The projector has an HDMI and AV inputs. I think what we need is a piece of equipment that has both coax and HDMI input and HDMI output. Does such a beast exist? Is there a better option?

The pi can output AV via hdmi. If you’re watching TV / cable, presumably that will have a set top box / receiver that should be hdmi also. Depending on the number of hdmi inputs you could either plug both in or get an hdmi matrix (splitter) or get a cheap AV receiver and have everything run through that. If the projector doesn’t have good speakers you’d need a way to output the sound anyway and so the receiver might be the best option.

The only inputs on the projector are a single HDMI, AV, and VGA. I figured I'd run HDMI from the pi but I'm not sure how to get the cable signal to the projector. The cable system here doesn't use cable boxes, it just plugs directly into the televisions.

Is there something that has an input for HDMI (for the pi), coax (for the cable) and an HDMI output so I can run the signal to the projector?

We have a PA system and speakers that'll handle the audio output from the projector. Audio's covered.

Even robust bones can splinter. The best is dried and pressed skin or dried ears, penis, throat, scalp, etc. for chewing purposes.

Good for chewing for smaller dogs. I'd go broke in no time if I was to only get those products for my big dog. He goes through a bully stick in less than 10 minutes.

The best I found for him is a water buffalo horn.

that guy and his group came through my town last year and threw down baggies with a log at my caches they couldn't find. i have no respect for his numbers.

He found a cache of mine that up to that point had 24 finds and 24 favorite points. He didn't award a favorite point.

I hate that guy for ruining my cache's streak.

Edit: After looking at the cache page, he was only the 11th find, my memory was off. He did leave a shitty log though.

Freeseasy, all caches deserve more than a short "found it" "TFTC". Though it takes me a few days to log all my caches from a day of caching with my caching friends NF5, Metro Rail, Felix Rocks, and many others I still find the time to add a unique paragraph or more for each cache. I always hear from my friends, "log your caches". I have shared many stories on my caching logs. Thank you for that creative hide! It is in my top 5 best creative caches.

Thanks for the praise.

If you ever make it to Riverside, I invite you to check out a couple other hides of mine. Good Times is one of my more favorited cache, it's unique for sure. All we want to do is, PUMP YOU UP! is another unique and devious hide.

I'm about to build a garden bed with a patriotic theme for my boss. He wants nothing but red white and blue flowers. I've decided on lobelia for the blue, alyssum for the white but I can't think of an annual that has approximately the same height, width and flower size. Any suggestions?

Calibrachoa would be nice for all three colors. This site has a red, white and blue combination you can click on the pic:

Have you actually seen their blue? I'm just asking because a lot of flowers listed as blue are more like purple. There aren't many true blue flowers that fit what I'm looking for.

The area sees some pretty intense sunlight, I'd be worried about impatients holding up.

I love that sentence, it sounds like a euphemism. I'm using my imagination to reveal the underlying meaning.

Sorry that happened to you.

This is exactly the sort of thing that caused me to leave CA and move to east TN (Knoxville) in 2005. I was born and raised in Riverside (La Sierra). Unfortunately, it's just not 'home' anymore.

According to City-Data.com, Riverside has had a lower crime index than Knoxville every year that they have listed. In fact, while Riverside's crime rate has been slightly above the national average, Knoxville has been double.

Knoxville

You'll find the stats about a quarter of the way down.

Knoxville is the nearest major city. Try Oak Ridge.

Oak Ridge looks like it's about the same crime rate as Riverside. Hardly seems like a reason to move to the other side of the country.

The fact is, Riverside is a pretty great town and it's hard to find an objective argument for why it isn't.

You'd be better off in /r/whatsthisbug. Just grab a photo of them and make sure to include your location in the post.
