Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

TRIVIA - Something that I saw about Newfoundland and Labrador crime...can one imagine two homicides in one year – they knew each other. Heck, when I lived in LA one year there were 900 and some homicides and that was in the late 50’s before the gang killings. And I saw where Chicago was averaging fo...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJCKvpg6WTg TRIVIA - Okay....for the rest of the story....My first year there the air field was fogged in until June, yes, we never saw the sun until June. The planes could take off only when the visibility was at least a half a mile, and it could have been a month fo...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

TRIVIA – 11 pm, 9,11 This is not trivial ...At least over a half dozen times today on the TV I heard this woman say, “We saw the best of humanity and the worst of humanity on the same day.” She was referring to her stop over in Gander, Newfoundland that 30 some passenger planes made rather than proc...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

TRIVIA - I sure thank you for those kind words from a fellow Iowaon. It was before your time but it was in 1949 that we, the school, won the Iowa State Basketball State Championship in Iowa City by beating Forest Lake. And it was all because of the Coach using a ‘Slow Break’. At the time there were ...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

TRIVIA – You are lucky. I just graduated to a Walking Stick. I cracked a vertebrae in my back in January, was in a wheel chair for a month in a rehab center, had to sleep in a recliner for three months, couldn’t get in and out of a bed, and used a walker until just a couple of days ago. Now I can do...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

TRIVIA – What’s new? On that current capsized boat in Georgia....That looks like to me may be a gross miscalculation of a Load Master. A Land Sea Cargo Ship just has to have some help in capsizing in calm seas I would think. Ship Sailors should equate to this. Normal regular ships and boats have a c...

TRIVIA - A very interesting posting on Cast Boolits....on ‘Black Powder Paper Patching’, “What a difference .080 “ makes.” I have a felling that the comment made by ‘HUVIUS’ just may be right. It makes sense to me. May be .090” will do even better. And I think that the same principle may work on reg...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

TRIVIA - FUN TRIVIA OR SERIOUS TRIVIA ... People die from not knowing this trivia, quite often. It was just last week or so that two were lost off the northern Florida coast. I will try to detail it – it may save someone’s life. When I was 15 my parents bought a resort on the 3 rd largest lake in Mi...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

TRIVIA - On the dive boat fire...I see in the news that it may take more than a year to determine the cause of the fire. I think that a good guess is Propane gas. 1. Propane gas is heavier than air, but popular for use in a galley. If a gas leak did happen, which I would guess did, the gas would hav...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

TRIVIA - This is just in passing and not meant to be anything other than that. While I am at it....the misuse of the word ‘Weapon’. A good definition of a weapon I think is as I just looked up again...Weapon – “A thing designed or used for inflicting bodily harm or physical damage.” And breaking thi...
