    Guns...Times have changed...

    I was thinking about when I was a kid...now 75, so that was a while ago. We had a local thrift store, and they had a barrel that was filled with rifles...I remember what me and by buddie bought was a 303 something or other. Being teenagers of some age, well under age of 18, we just wanted to...

    Making your own Hydraulic Hoses

    It’s been a while since I put my top and tilt rear remotes together on my tractor. But I remember that I bought some fittings that allowed me to cut hose to the lengths I needed(4 remotes), and then somehow I screwed a male fitting into the end of the hose and then a female outer pieces that...

    Where do you keep your small money?

    In a recent thread somewhere at OTT I mentioned that I was fortunate to have invested in US Treasury I Bond savings bonds years ago. Me and the wife that is... Anyway, they are paying quite good interest at the present time. There are limitations with them, such as you cannot cash them in for...

    Would you buy it for a dollar?

    Saw this and thought, not for me, even if I could buy it for a dollar, and just pay the taxes and upkeep...which I could not afford anyway. But even if there were not taxes or upkeep, I would not want it anyway. Happy where I am at, and would not want to live there even if only for a visit now...

    19 years & 1,400 hours. First fuel filter change (insert red face here)

    Recently my BX2200 started telling me that the fuel filter better be changed soon. I guess it was telling the truth. Just never got around to doing it. Changed the one before the fuel pump today, along with mower deck maintenance, including new blades and its first belt change. Still have to...

    He said…she said

    I just read an article where an Air Force General was found guilty of something like sexual assault, because the woman said that he forced her into certain position and kissed her. This is a more or less a summary of what I think I read. Anyway I think these kind of things are a real negative...

    I'm easily offended I guess...

    I just realized that I do not like the Ms replacement for MRS. or Miss. I feel discriminated against! Why should I have to live with Mr. when the other gender can choose between three: Mrs., Miss, or Ms. It's time all us guys to band together and DEMAND equality! It is obvious that EVERYONE...

    OK, so a ship explodes and later sinks in a war zone?

    Am I missing something? Just by chance something causes a fire on a flag ship of the opposing force? And the claim is it was just a chance fire having nothing to do with anything else? Sorry no link, but anyone interested probably knows what I am referring to...

    Strange Experiences...

    I posted about this somewhere before, but can't remember where. If here at OTT, apologies. We all probably have some strange experience during our lives, and probably more than one. One I remember that popped into my mind today, happened when I was coming home from work years ago, driving my...

    How are Military Tank Turrets Mounted?

    Just a simple question. I see some destroyed tanks sitting on the ground with their turrets on the ground beside them. Is this a sign that turrets are basically just sitting there on bearings, expecting that nothing would cause them to be displaced and knocked off the tank base? Just...

    Being Biased About Things....

    You know when I was younger and my dad was still on the planet, I thought maybe he was pretty biased about what he stated about things. Now he is gone and I am in about the same position. Starting to think when younger I should have given more consideration to what he was saying.... Something...

    Rules for posting at OTT

    Just a suggestion, and not sure of the value. But recently I wanted to reread the rules for posting here at OTT and could not find them. Turns out they are stickys at the top of the Off Topic forum. I understand why they are there, but I think they really apply to the whole site, and think it...

    A Basic Injector Pump Question

    Simple question: Are injector pumps positive displacement pumps? I mean the older type, and not what might be used on common rail setups. I imagine they must be since they meter fuel to the cylinders. Reason I am asking is I read somewhere that it is advised to crack the lines at the injectors...

    Stonehenge in England

    This is about as off topic as one can imagine I guess. BUT my daughter is married to an English kid that went to school with her locally. The parents live down the road, and maintain their British citizenship. Anyway, I kind of find this amusing, upon reading a current article as to the...

    Toenail fungus

    I’m only posting this because it kind of amazed me. When I was a young teenager may be 13 or 14, or maybe even 12 years old, on the way to school, which we walked to by the way, for some reason I kicked a bottle that was laying on the ground. I think it was broken and when I kicked it a sharp...

    Highlight OLD thread dates In RED?

    I see the value of old threads. There are some great and helpful ones. But I seem to start reading threads that are actually resurrected after many years, without realizing it. This is not a bad thing, but I get a negative feeling when I reach the last post, which simply says "me too". Is...

    Phone SPAM messages question

    Recently I started receiving a message on my phone that are addressed to ten or twenty sequential numbers including mine. Meaning my number was in there around the others that were in the sequence of numbers provided as to where the messages were sent to. IF anyone replies to this spam message...

    Vaccination opinions wanted...

    This is ABSOLUTELY not a question related to whether someone should get a vaccination or not. This question is simply asking for opinions from those who decided to get vaccinated to begin with. Free choice, no opinion to be voiced here. Simply a question as to how those that decided to get...

    The other guy is always the issue?

    Just wondering when you react to comments by others, if you always tend to think the other guy is the problem, and you are certainly right in what you think. I would like to think that I am not like that and that I keep an open mind, but sometimes I am not sure that is the case. Not sure if...

    Love expressed by animals

    It is more than 50 years since I last saw my childhood friend Mitsy. She joined the family when I was around 6 or 7, and was still there when I got married and was living abroad. I can't forget how much affection she showed if we went somewhere and came back at the end of the day. Jumping up...
