Well done. I had major diverter issues at an old place I rented years ago, that looks like a more reliable valve...

Re: NBA player gets kilted

Excellent article, I even like how the author admits it’s basically a skirt but doesn’t take it in a bad direction. His outfit begs the question: at what length does a kilt become a skirt? I presume there is some unofficial standard? I’m just not into kilts, but my general impression is that they a...

Re: Finding an El Kommando Kilt

I've got a couple, and I too, am disappointed that they were discontinued. Not the best kilt for sitting, but for hiking they are great!

I'm looking at those links and eyeing a few things. Thank you for those.

I can explain why one particular male hates pantyhose; such a hassle to have a pee.
Once again, they make them with a fly, for men. No other real difference, other than sizing, though you will pay extra. That and a more limited selection...

Re: Not good for our cause

I saw a post the other day, saying that the Proud Boys chose the kilt vendor in part because he was gay. One of the kilted guys in those pics is apparently gay as well. Unfortunately, I can't just copy paste the whole thing, but here are the relevant parts: WE are the kilted badasses you saw in DC t...

Re: Not good for our cause

Yes, Moon is right. The USA is still as safe as ever, unless you place yourself near the violent protests. Nearly all are planned in advance (though sometimes only by a few days), so just be mindful and stay away from them. That goes for everyone. Targeted violence against various identity groups is...

Re: Not good for our cause

I'm staunchly in the camp of this is actually a good sign. Not only is this a sign that kilts/skirts are gaining wider acceptance, but the more diverse views that get associated with men in skirts, the less it will be associated with any one viewpoint, organization, or movement. And that is a good t...

Re: Pockets differences

The term vegan leather amuses me. Sounds better than PU leather (polyurethane). I remember a comedy sketch about how vegans (or perhaps it was vegetarians) try to make tofu (and other things) taste like meat, but no one tries to make meat taste like tofu... Now we have plenty of fabrics and plastic...

Re: Very O/T - A Query About Home Heating

The same could be said of concrete, the creation of which amounts to maybe 8% of worldwide CO2 emissions and is also not reusable in any useful way. I don't see people saying we should stop using that. Yes, it would be great if we could find a better way to make these blades, but this is really way...

Re: Gaslighting

I've also toyed with the notion of a private, not for profit, healthcare cooperative. Trouble here is, membership in cooperatives are generally voluntary, and thus may be difficult to obtain membership in small numbers. Small numbers mean a higher cost burden for any benefits. Such membership would...

Below is a partial list of of Socialist Programs in the USA -- you'll be hard pressed to find anyone that wants to toss them all, or even many of them. It is long past time for people to acknowledge that the term "socialist" is not the downfall of mankind! I've eliminated the description for most o...

Re: Gaslighting

Pay your doctor bills with CASH... THE TRUE CAPITALIST WAY! There is a private hospital in Oklahoma that accepts no insurance. They have fixed prices for their procedures, I'm told that it's typically about 10% of what "normal" hospitals in the US bill the "insurance" companies. I'm also told they ...

Re: Very O/T - A Query About Home Heating

Wind turbines have a limited lifetime - when they replace the blades or the entire turbine they cannot recycle the blades (it's a composite made of fiberglass and resin, not sure about the base), so they have to bury them. Just because it wasn't done before doesn't mean it can't be done. In fact, t...

Re: Gaslighting

It's fascinating that some of the most vocal opponents of government-subsidized US health care are receiving their health care through Medicare or the Veterans Administration. Tell me, why should the government provide for their healthcare, but not everyone else's? They know how bad government run ...
