    Questions for all

    Need a non-virus topic so here goes.

    If you pay taxes, should you be able to vote? Buy a firearm? (Citizen or not).

    If you don't have kids, should your tax dollars still go to schools?

    Why are IPAs so popular when Porter and stout are so much tastier?

    Is 2021 going to be the year of the home cut mullets?

    Discuss

    -No, and blind people shouldn’t have guns neither.

    If you don't have kids, should your tax dollars still go to schools?
    -Yes, ugly undesirables should pay school taxes

    Why are IPAs so popular when Porter and stout are so much tastier?
    -It’s something to talk about while drinking

    Black IPAs (malty IPAs or hoppy Porters, depending on which way you sway) are probably my favorite compromise beer.

    I don't have kids, so this question is interesting. Let me answer your question with a question. If I don't commit crimes, should my tax dollars still go to funding prisons?

    Yes and yes.

    If you don't have kids, should your tax dollars still go to schools?
    Yes.

    Why are IPAs so popular when Porter and stout are so much tastier?
    Because you haven’t tried any of the Belgian-style triple and double hopped IPAs, they’re on par with stouts and porters on the deliciousness scale of awesome.

    Is 2021 going to be the year of the home cut mullets?
    Perhaps those with mullets will have to pay extra school taxes.

    Yes, but the worst was when I walked out into the bright sunlight a few days after umbilical hernia surgery, sneezed, and felt like I was going to go full-on Kane from Alien.

    So, someone was born in the US but does not pay taxes (not contributing to society for whatever reason) can buy a gun.
    But a responsible, tax paying resident shouldn't. Ok got it.

    I do agree everyone's taxes should go to schools, so the country isn't full of morons. I do think there should be a lower rate for folks that don't have kids.
    Parents don't help me pay my property taxes. Why am I paying for their kids lunch?

    I commended my wife for the incredibly creative and imaginative way she managed to realign the multiple evidence to the contrary into a reality that involved her being a great driver. She wasn't quite sure if this was a compliment or not, and that momentary confusion gave me enough time to escape into the house before she clobbered me with her purse...

    Excellent timing, but to what end? Now you'll be trapped in the house with her and the purse.

    Driving is really easy, I let my 14 year old son drive my F350 on the highway with his learners. The day he turned 14, we hit the Registry/DVM. I cant believe how many different stages there are in order to get a full DL, and all the rules, they cracked down hard.
    Anyone remember the days of paper drivers licenses?

    If you havent watched Canada's Worst Driver, its hilariously funny, yet frightening to know those are licensed drivers on the road, too true.

    I would say that I would advise you not to comment on your wife's driving, but that would be hypocritical. That or I haven't learned that lesson, yet. I think it's been learned, but can't be stopped...

    Who else does that thing when you're driving with somebody on some way you always take and you can tell the driver is going to miss the exit, so you wait until they pass and ask where the hell they're going? I get in trouble for that one a lot.

    I’ve found that referring to someone as “dumbass” really lightens the mood and gets people chuckling. For example:

    “Did we just miss our exit?”

    ...vs...

    “Did we just miss our exit, dumbass?”

    Sure you see how this can improve any situation. Give it a try.

    I ask them right at the exist. Also, I find asking them if they are a dumbass more effective than calling them a dumbass. Plus it leaves the obvious fact that you didn't call them a dumbass....I was just asking.

    Anyone remember the days of paper drivers licenses?

    If you havent watched Canada's Worst Driver, its hilariously funny, yet frightening to know those are licensed drivers on the road, too true.
    What? A learners permit at 14? I had to be 16 and have graduated driver's education to take the test.

    canadia. Different rules up there. I drank at 19, was able to buy alcohol at 17 as I looked mature enough that they didn't card me at the Liquor Board store. I had many contemporaries that got their learners at 14. We had school sponsored alcohol present senior parties each year. They figured kids were going to drink anyway might as well give them a supervised and safe area to do so. Also every year at the end of the year the school districts would park totaled cars on the lawns of the high schools from a drunk driving accident.

    This is probably why the only war the US has admitted to losing was to Canada.

    Of course we also had a really high teen mortality rate, especially in the drinking and driving arena, and the racing the train to the crossing game. So you know...

    You can be under 14 years old and drive on the farm. Different rules apply to farms.

    Lots of states allow you to drive @ 14

    Luckily some states arent cracking down on us old people with extra tests every so often.

    What the hell is a learner’s permit?

    Why would anyone need a permit to learn......

    Somebody else concussed me while walking home from the 4th of July fireworks, and I don't even remember anything until I saw my front steps.
    My friends told me that after I was "out" , I hit that guy so hard that an ambulance had to be called. I can't remember a thing, but apparently I really messed him up. Cost him most of a season that fall playing football.

    Sometimes they linger stinking up the place so we throw those in a dumpster fire, other times they are inert, so we mine them and return their code to the base of the forum which is why sometime you get a loading error. When that happens just dump your cache files as they are incompatible with this new awesome recycled code.

    Have a real honest question. I ride a bike path. Where it crosses bridges and overpasses there are what looks like monofilament fishing line from light pole to light pole. What is that for? I have seen it in other places but mainly around overpasses.

    Most likely. I grew up in the Eastern Suburbs, high Jewish population and now live in the north, again, very high Jewish population in my suburb. We have them here, well so to speak. For the most part the they count the power lines but then do supplement this with wire where no power lines exist. There is one at Bondi Beach that most people never notice.

    interesting. Never heard of them. I thought it had something to do with birds and bridges. I see them along the SR51 bike path, 56th St over the CAP canal, and the mid 50s Ave and Bell Rd.

    Yeah, the article I posted only shows the one in Tempe on the map. Wikipedia lists 6 cities in AZ having eruvin.

    Wait a minute. Aren’t all guns concealed to the blind person? We should all possess such a permit. In fact we mountain bikers should have concealed cycling permits.

    The government needs to create more permits. Think of the revenue.

    Something thrown is easy to duck, bullets on the other hand, they move too fast, easier to just stand there.

    Hmm, good thing those bacteria are invisible to the naked eye! I would strongly suggest she cleans it out every so often.

    Fify. I've seen yoga pants do some horribly incredible science-defying stunts.

    I like at around 1:10, the guy hits his head on the corner of the table. I don't think that was supposed to happen. A few seconds late, he's seen rubbing his head.

    Anyone remember the days of paper drivers licenses?

    If you havent watched Canada's Worst Driver, its hilariously funny, yet frightening to know those are licensed drivers on the road, too true.
    I lived in Belgium when I was an early teen, and they didn't have any drivers license til the later 60s. It was a free for all until then. If you could buy a car and get insurance, you could drive. It was buttock clenching as a pedestrian there. When they first started using them, they basically just gave everyone a license who had a car. I took my mum's car to the 'Prefecture' and got my first license. I think I was 16. Easy!
    Next time I tried in the UK, it was about 1978, and I had a date for the test at about 10 am in Oxford. About 40 miles west of london. I had just driven the crew van back from Switzerland after finishing a tour the previous day there, so I was a bit frazzled when I got back. Needless to say, the test was a bit of a non starter because the examiner was a dick who tried to get me to do a 3 point turn on a busy road with cars lined up waiting and pooping their little toots at me the whole time. I lost patience, drove up on the curb to make the turn, and drove right back to the test center. Told the guy I thought he was an idiot, and he failed me!
    Next time around I took a Freddy Laker cheap flight to LA for 4 days, took the test in Santa Monica one morning, easiest thing in the world, and flew home to the UK with a license the day after.
    Then I took it seriously for once and did another test in the UK in the mid 80s. That was tough even back then. You had to do lessons with a proper instructor, then some other written stuff, then a very difficult practical test. I passed. Then I soon did my MC endorsement, which again was a very difficult and lengthy process, but I passed again.
    Then when I moved to the US 15 years ago, I took the test here in AZ, and it was a piece of piss. Actually a joke. I fully understand why the driving standard is so crappy here when the testing standards are so pathetic. Then people go around saying they are great drivers! beats the poop outta me! like my wife did for ever saying this...

    This brings up a funny story about my driving test in high school here in the USA. I rode motocross my whole life and dabbled in some kart racing so I knew how to handle a vehicle toward it's limits at a young age.

    I already had my learner's permit for a year but now I had to take the "test" to get my license. It was through the school and the phys ed. teacher was the instructor. Well on a portion a highway a pickup truck lost two bags of trash directly in front of me. It was close and I probably could have slowed down but I decided evasive action was needed and treated the two bags of trash like a slalom at highway speed. I already judged the speed an everything was perfectly in control but for some reason the instructor was freaking out waving his arms everywhere and the other student in the back seat was screaming. After it was over the instructor was speachless and the other student let out a big sigh. I still don't know what they were so scared of. I passed the test for my driving license.
