Any pilots, or wanna be pilots on here?

I know some aircraft have "Autoland" but it is limited to certain conditions including weather and airport environments and instruments available. I work around airliners and there are so many different types and models it is hard to keep track of them all. Even planes of the same type may have thei...

Springfield Armory 911 380

I have put around 300 rounds through it and every magazine load has had jams, Failed to fires, loading issues. Ouch! On the contrary, I have a S&W BodyGuard 380 with integrated laser that has digested every round of ~7 brands of ammo and bullet types, even when loaded into the same magazine togethe...

Why do fish strike lures?

I have seen fish on a bed pick up a lure or live bait and spit it out outside of the bed. Not hungry just getting rid of something that is in the bed.

Astrophotography

I was a amateur astronomer when I was younger but not as a photographer. I used to be able to name the stars but it has been 40 years since I was really involved in it.

I hit a rock and didn't like it.

That is an awful sound to hear as you are traveling down the river. It hurts. I know it doesn't mean much but it could have been worse. At least you were not ejected from the boat when it hit.

Coca-Cola Orange and Vanilla

Haven't tried it. Not really a soft drink drinker myself. Coca-Cola makes much more drinks and flavors than people realize. Go to their museum in Atlanta. When you come out of the museum there will be room where you can get samples of the different drinks and flavors sold around the world. Some are ...

Quiet at home

When you start upsetting them be prepared for their hostilities. They have threatened my life, my family members lives, threatened to have me arrested, threatened to burn down my house, called my mother names and more. They have been so upset with me they have been screaming at me through the phone....

Quiet at home

I normally hit block caller on my cell phone, and I have looked at the list of blocked calls after a few months and many are in blocks of the same area code and prefix. When I am not working, and am bored, I will answer one and listen to the spiel and ask questions completely unrelated to what they...

Hummingbird Attack

Years ago I parked in the parking lot where I work and was walking into the building on the sidewalk when I was slapped in the back of the head. I thought a coworker might have been toying with me. When I turned around there was a Mockingbird attacking me. I had just walked by a cluster of bamboo an...

Dale H, or ?? Can I just short out the sensors?

I am not sure of the exact type of sensor you have in that unit or if you can even get to it but I have a water detector sensor for my water heater in my home that I can check by jumping across the probes with a wire. I can also check it by touching the probes with my fingers. The tighter I grip the...
