It's not very popular.

I imagine that the bearings are shot. That is why it overheated. I would be stupid to make the bearings too difficult to replace. Bearings wear out. It should be a planned maintenance. It may be somewhat time consuming, but it shouldn't be a huge issue. Hitachi is a smart company that builds lots of TBMs.

It works for me. But then I don't smoke in the first place.

She and her type can take a flying fuck at a rolling doughnut. The no dress code is one of the reasons I really like Seattle. I don't think I've worn long pants more than once or twice in the last couple years. And I'm 50 years old.

First problem was when we started making women's footwear and letting them out of the kitchen.

We used a garbage can lid. Throw it up in the air and the bat would home in on it, not realize it was too big to miss and then run into it. We tried it a bunch and had it work maybe once. The bat fell to the ground staggered a bit then flew away.
Jun 6, 2013 garumph commented on Why I Ride Fearfully Even With a Helmet.
yes, helmet laws make it less safe, but helmets make you safer. Those aren't contradictory statements. And it doesn't mean you are safer if you don't wear a helmet.

With helmet laws you tend to have fewer riders on the street. More riders = safer. If you fall you will be safer with a helmet. That is a given.

I'm all for not requiring helmets, but I will always wear one. I've had a couple falls where I have destroyed a helmet and didn't even realize that I hit my head until well after the fall. One where I was on a seldom used trail at dusk in the winter. I'm not saying they saved my life, but they would have made some painful crashes much worse.

I agree with Dan's sentiments, but what's not clear from the letter is if she is thrusting their BSDM on them or just announcing it? Do they play discretely and the only reason sis knows it that she was told about it?

She may have been told because they want to invite her to the collaring ceremony, which is not too different from a marriage. I can't tell if the LW is all upset that people do THOSE THINGS or if she is uncomfortable witnessing them.

I'm incensed. My office faces the Space Needle and I can't see it either. Please raze the core of down town so I can see it from my office.

WTF? where were these door mats when I was in high school? Maybe I just wasn't attracted to girls with such low esteem to realize they were a easy lay?
Jan 8, 2013 garumph commented on "There is no real public transportation without dedicated lines.".
No, not just the Ballard line. The A line south down pac highway sucks too. It may be a minute or two faster than the old 174, but A line and light rail takes twice as long as an express from Federal Way to Seattle.
