  1. LIbs say that it is a undisputable scientific fact that CO2 from fossil fuel use is creating global warming which is going to cause human extinction if not halted immediately. They also call anyone in this country who dispute these "facts" an inbred, science denying moron. Meanwhile, it is an absolutely undeniable fact that China and India continue to build more and more fossil fuel power plants so that they can bring electricity to their citizens. Therefor, the libs must think the people who run China and India are inbred, science denying morons. Hmmmm.
  2. Next, you're gonna need to buy a local dog license if you travel with your pet.
  3. Colorado has required out of state peeps to buy a temporary permit for their OHVs for at least 10 yrs now.
  4. I read that, because China's electric grid is mostly coal, if the electric car battery is made in China there is more CO2 produced making the battery, than an economy gasoline car would produce over the whole life of the car.
  5. Just wait a few years until the California $15/hr minimum wage goes into effect. BTW, what the hell is moshiani pignu? Some sort of Japanese sex act??
  6. Sorry Sausage, but I'm not buying it. Those are some bad ass kids for sure but I did see anything in either video that even remotely compares to jumping the canal. And as far as statistics, I saw a statistic recently that more people die every year from hammers than from assault rifles. Even so, I'd give a 10 year old a hammer to go play with any day. Don't think I'd give one my AR though.
  7. Jeff, maybe we're looking at it all wrong. My niece Madi is 6. You can build some ramps and we'll strap some effing rockets to her big wheel and blast her across the canal. Rockwood can work out all the engineering details for us. We'll put it all on youtube and maybe she'll get sponsored by Mattel
  8. I already posted once on this, but the more I think about it and the more I think about the people posting on here supporting this crap, the more it pisses me off. That sort of jump over the canal is nothing but a "dude, hold my beer" type endeavor. The only way it's not is as follows. You build yourself a takeoff ramp that you know to be firm, flat ,level, and at a certain angle of trajectory. You then have a math whiz calculate the speed you need to be at to go with that angle of trajectory that will guarantee your exact vehicle and occupant will travel sufficient distance to clear the canal. You then make sure your vehicle is traveling at that speed on takeoff. Even with all that, there are still variables beyond your control, but without it, you are just hucking it and hoping for the best. If an adult wants to do that, it's his business and I admire his balls, if not his brains. The ADULT in the trophy truck had probably jumped similar distances many times before (just not over water) and had a pretty good idea of what the truck was capable of. Plus, that truck probably has 10 times the protective capabilities for the occupant in a crash than does a razor. To compare that trophy truck jump to the kid's jump is just stupid. Any parent who would say to his 10 year old son "let me hold your beer" as the kid launches into that type of jump that , if it's unsuccessful, could easily cripple or kill him, is an effing moron and should not have children. If there are any other relatives in this kids life (mom, grandparents, etc..), I would not be surprised if they bring some sort of child endangerment charges against the dad.
  9. Cruise around the camp area and collect up all the Mexican flags and use them to skirt your trailer.
  10. I'm definitely not some helicopter parent who tries to protect his kid from everything, but that was way too much for me. How fast do you suppose he was going on takeoff? Supposed he had lawn darted into the far bank? Or clipped the far bank and rolled 10 or 20 times? What if he went in the water. How's he gonna get out? He's not only wearing the harness and a helmet, he's got some sort of helmet restraint system on. He's gonna undo all that underwater as the car's being dragged downstream? Who's gonna help him? Maybe they were more people present that you couldn't see in the video, but it looked like it was just his dad watching. To me your not just talking about your kid getting cuts and bruises or even a broken bone, talking about your kid getting crippled or killed.
  11. Wife and I are looking to maybe get away from our bumper pull to something different. Tested out a motorhome but wasn't sold on that. Now considering a 30ft 5th wheel but I need some info. Is it really possible/advisable to ride in a 5th wheel while being towed? How's the ride? Does it require a special hitch setup? Roughly, what's it gonna cost me for the hitch and other items to setup my truck to pull a 5th wheel? Any particular 5th wheel brands or models you recommend?
  12. I don't like abortion. I personally do not see how any woman can do that sort of thing to her own child. BUT it's not a "make or break" issue for this country. The fact is that the vast majority of abortions are performed on inner city minority woman who are too lazy or just unwilling to use other means of birth control. The real issue that's going to bring this country down is mass immigration (legal and illegal). Sorry to sound callous, but I would gladly trade legalizing abortion for strict immigration control any day.
  13. Then they did the same hatchet job on the Suzuki Samurai in the 90's
  14. Some really cool old mines you should check out while you're there
