I think Revenge of the Sixth would be better but my only other final is tomorrow so, Fifth it is.

Why are (most) gym rats pretty much useless outside the gym? I only say most because I haven't met them all.
Gym rats work their butts off to get in shape, get strong, get buff, whatever... But ask for their help outside the gym & they have as many excuses for not helping as I have for not going to the gym to begin with - if they bother with excuses at all.
I am old & fat, not in good shape (unless you need to trace out a circle) but if I am able, I will help people move their belongings, move scrap metal (been doing that all week), even help pull an elk down out of the mountains if at all possible.
I have asked several gym rats for help in these sorts of things & other things but none would help. WTF are they working so hard for if they aren't going to actually apply it to something useful? :skep:

I think it is gym dependant. The last gym I joined, I became a gym rat. I helped people all the time, but then again that was the "culture" at that family run, 3 location business. I've also gone to some of the bigger ones like Golds... they were often filled with muscle-heads who more more interested in posing in front of the mirror.

Also had to love the women who showed up in full war paint and high fashion. Try one that has a full schedule of group fitness classes, I have found those have a better learning atmosphere than the gyms that focus solely on pumping iron.

Just my $0.02...

As always, YMMV. :)

I have a FNS 9LS and a octane 45, so I thought I would go to EFK and order a threaded barrel for it. Placed order a bout 15 min ago, site said backorder not uncommon for them. Just got a call confirming my order was for a long slide 9 and come to find out it in stock. and will ship shortly :thumb:

A small peek into something I have dedicated my life too and one of it's most influential teachers who recently passed away.





On behalf of Birankai International, with deep sorrow, Birankai North America announces the death on June 5th, 2015 of our Founder and teacher T. K. Chiba, Shihan. Martial artists here and around the world salute his life as they mourn his passing. During more than 50 years of training and teaching, Sensei inspired, forged and changed the lives of generations of students. United in gratitude for the great gift he gave us, we offer our condolences to his family.

A celebration of Sensei's life will be held at Birankai North America 2015 Summer Camp. In lieu of flowers, we ask that you consider a gift for the family.

Need some ideas...
I am installing lights into my utility trailer, I'm also installing a small battery so that I don't have to hook up my truck. The lights and switches are done but I need something to hold the battery. The battery is 2.25in thick x 3in wide x 4in high and weighs less than 4lbs. I want to use the trailer as a hunting camper so the container needs to handle a bit of bouncing around. Don't want plastic, was thinking a wire basket of some sort.
I checked electrical boxes (1gang, 22 cu. in.) but the crap inside makes them too small & larger sizes are too big. I thought about a shower caddy but they aren't high enough, office trays are too small, bicycle baskets too big, & so on.
Anyone have other ideas? I keep looking but nothing I see really works.
The width can be 3in or 6in.
Appreciate any help, thanks.

What about something like this? It's plastic, but the right dimensions.

Don't like the plastic but otherwise could work... If I can't find/make anything better, might try that.
satellitedr3ams suggested ammo cans but I don't have any that size or know of any that would be close to that size.

So my mom just tried to set me up for identity theft...
She sent me a text the other day saying her friend said his company is hiring engineers and that I should apply now so that I can be that much farther along once I graduate.
I looked up the company, they're a general engineering company out of Portland, OR, but they don't do anything related to my degree (nuclear). There is typically some overlap in the disciplines so I send the guy a message & ask for more information; that's when the red flags started. The person wouldn't answer any questions about the job, they would only send messages through facebook (which you need a court order to get an IP from), I HAD to have a gmail account to email them, and they wanted me to email my application to a gmail address instead of a company email.
All this is setting off every spidey sense I have so I ask my mom how well she knows this guy, aaaaaannnddd queue the epic facepalm....

She's a facebookaholic, always online & playing their online games. She gets friends through those but apparently she also accepts friend invites from random strangers (I can't get it through her fossilized cerebrum that this is asking for trouble). It turns out that her 'friend' with the job is one of these random people who just started messaging her on facebook. Um, what? That's not a friend mom... :facepalm:
And this 'friend' wants me to send my application, replete with all kinds of personal information, to a generic email account?

I respectfully chewed her out but I still don't think she quite gets it.
Anyway, I called the company & warned them about this scammer. They did check their records, no one by that name even works there. They did say they are taking applications but not for nukes. :?:

I did not realize how fast a Sawzall could go through sheet metal until tonight -holy crap! Based on that, I'd also highly recommend them for all your body disposing needs. :laugh:

Blade's already a bit bent but I just went for it anyway. It worked fine, chewed through sheet metal like butter; but for any real steel application, I'll need to change the blade.
End result seems good enough - for now... Will see if it leaks next time it rains.

All total, it cost me less than $100 for parts & supplies.
The cheapest quote to have it professionally installed was $350.


EDIT: It rained, no leaks. Yippee!
