That feature eliminates incompetent newbies. It's particularly effective

There is something to be said for the tiered permit system.
That was designed to prevent cats from dialing the emergency services. At least the US went for 911.
Think about it. How do you build a turnbuckle with both sides righthanded thread?
A room temperature IQ helps. All them numbers is just white supremacy.
At least in the US the default is to dial 911. The pizza was cold when the guy delivered it? Dial 911.

In that era they were both three speeds. Some of the TorqueFlites were 4 speed. I believe both Sturmey-Archer has an 8 speed and Shimano is up to

The US uses intermodal transportation. A truck loads freight and takes the loaded trailer to a rail depot or port and the entire trailer is
transferred. It may either be a container that is placed on a chassis for truck transport or sometimes the complete road trailer.

A mens' clothing store tends to buy more than one shirt at a time. She
worked for Cluett & Peabody who made Arrow shirts. The brand still exists
but now they're made in Bangladesh or some shithole.
Anyway, they were dress shirts with each style available in a variety of collar sizes and sleeve lengths. When Harry's Haberdashery orders 5 dozen shirts they don't get to pick an choose; they get a selection of sizes in
a normal distribution. That leads to a lot of base 12 arithmetic.
Today, the normal distribution seems to consist of XL, XLL, and XLLL sizes with sleeves suitable for alligators.
We had one black teacher in the high school I went to. Oddly he taught

What you have to realize is Massachusetts was settled by Brits. They don't call it New England for nothing. I lived there for a brief period. At the time you couldn't buy groceries on Sunday because it would piss god off or something. I could either drive to an adjoining state or go to Abe's
Kosher Market. I don't care if some Jew administered the Last Rites to the cow; cow is cow. The pork selection sucked though. Abe had to close on Saturday but the normal grocery stores were open then.

That's why pickups have sliding rear windows -- toss the empties in the

You may think you're superhuman but you wouldn't last long in 45F water.

By law in the US the maximum rate is 10 US gallons per minute (37.9

Germans, at almost 15%, are the largest ethnic group in the US. Combined

Returns the unsold merchandise for credit. Think about it. At least back
then they weren't 3D printing shirts on demand. The entire lot of the particular shirt was a normal distribution of sizes. There were no more

You're playing with weight transfer and the engine to break the rear end loose. I've never tried it but I think you would need the handbrake with a FWD car.

1995 Personal Responsibility and Work Oportunity Act
2000 another fail
Sounds like the definition of insanity to me and after almost 60 years
there has to have been a lot of deliberation along the way.
Then you have the worst of both worlds.
It would appear to be another strange measurement we inherited from oyur lot:
As I've never heard of anyone calling a quart of milk a 2-pint bottle. I suppose it works when describing a 2 pint warrior; a quart warrior just
isn't the same.
Says the person who multiplies 14 by 14 and gets 140.
You buy litres in America?
Only for beverages... When I used to go to Canada and buy gas by the liter between that and trying to do the currency conversion I always figured I

getting a bonus.

I didn't. I divided 140 by 14 and got 10.
That may have something to do with the state of Montana not having a sales tax. The last politician who said 'sales tax' was fed to the grizzlies.
They don't have the ability to understand anything. They're not trying

At least America hasn't pissed away a world-wide empire. Yet.

Peugeot made bicycles long before they made cars. I think Grimaldi in
Sweden has the brand now.
That has an interesting history in the northeast US. Towns either expected payment or work to maintain the town roads. Some saw an opportunity and constructed turnpikes between towns. In several cases people got tired of paying tolls for the roads and bridges and built their own using the cooperative model.
It worked in the 18th century.
The US has a few privately owned highways. I meant the ability to build a
I placed it to call attention to the ridiculous cost of the bridge. The

Most of the caches I've placed are on trails that are a bit more scenic.
This one is what is referred to as a 'park and grab' meaning you might
have to walk 100' rather than 6 miles.
The Feds get 18.3 cents per gallon on gasoline and the states grab their share. Most people wouldn't consider that a sales tax since it say $3.95 / gallon at the pump. It isn't as blatant as buying a $3.95 loaf of bread at the market and finding out it really costs $4.15. One is considered an excise tax, the other a sales tax like the terminology makes a difference.
One exception to a state sales tax is marijuana. Recreation marijuana has
a 20% tax, medical 4%. I think this county adds 3% for recreational. The last ballot split recreational/medical. The recreational initiative passed and the medical failed.
Some of them are a bit difficult to fill.
Before recreational use was legalized getting a medical card was sort of a joke.
The assumption with the ones that have stuff is you leave something and
take something. Many of them only have space for the log to sign.
OFL! Every Irishman I've met is an idiot. Most are gypsies who can't

You can't judge them all by Joe Biden.
Would you two have a duel or something?
I've been reading the 'April' series by Mackey Chandler. Set in an orbital habitat, the people have almost no laws or regulations but the duel is

Because they were not allowed to make aircraft.
Peugeot looked at the upcoming EPA and NHTSA regulations and decided the market wasn't worth it. There was talk a year or two ago but they again decided it wasn't worth it.
