@20 From where I see it, that's why @19 is correct. V is first, U must play immediately after, Y or Z must play immediately after W, which must go after X. So to start, only T, Y, or Z can go last, but neither T or Y can go last, so it must be Z that plays seventh.

I got the same answers as @19.

@1062, of course, the difference is that Kate Harding IS a dishonest paranoid douchebag. And also a bigger bully than Dan could ever hope to be in his cruelest dreams.

I've been meaning to post in this thread to thank Lindy for not linking to her.

Hell, living in a red state made me crazy (not to mention depressed and a smoker) and I'm not even gay.

@23 Having been there, I can assure you that the parking lot is thronging with creepy, windowless kidnapper^H^H^H^H^H brainwashing^H^H^H^H... "church" vans. Any grifters approaching these groups would be either rebuffed, beaten, or converted.

I'm a hardcore Sherlockian canonist who hates the Basil Rathbone movies for their perversion of the original text.

I love, love, LOVE this new show. The previous statement was only meant to underscore how persnickety I would be about a sub-par adaptation, and thereby emphasize the weight of my approval. The first episode perfectly upgrades the initial Holmes/Watson meeting in "A Study in Scarlet," while flinging it roughly 130 years into the future. It's just great. There are tons of sly references to the original canon. Thumbs up!

Thanks for answering, Goldy. I see what you're saying. Maybe it's just because I've only dealt with scientific grade regulators, but I'd never seen one with that configuration before (very odd... but if those are the specs, those are the specs). Glad it's all kosher! Enjoy your seltzer!

@ Goldy - Retorts are all well and good, but could you PLEASE check your regulator? It's driving me nuts. Unless the units on the left gauge are in mmHg, you're
1. In danger of over-pressurizing, and wasting CO2.
2. Screwing up your regulator, which is by far the most expensive component of your setup.

As someone who works with compressed gases, I have to echo the safety concerns. If you go to, you can get a bench mount or wall mount gas cylinder holder for $30 or less, depending on your needs. A modest investment to forestall a huge hole being blown through your kitchen wall.

Also - is it possible your regulator is on backwards? Typical units are in psi (which it looks like you have on the right). With the inside gauge going up to only 60 psi, that's 4 atmospheres, which is pretty low for a full canister. Not trying to be a dick - I just want you to continue enjoying your seltzer. If the units on the left are in psi, you should really switch it so that the big numbers are next to the cylinder.

@12 Jesus, you're right. 1%. Even worse.

Thanks for the sympathy, @7. I did what I could voting against him. Fortunately, I'll be leaving Kentucky in the very near future. Still, that doesn't change the disgrace of Rand Paul making up .5% of the US senate...
