Re: Guns

Clive - yeah, I think the idea to put "School Resource Officers" into schools did more to poison the relationship between cops and future adults than anything positive it achieved. I also think the protests are getting stronger as people around my son's age become adults and start asking questions b...

Re: Guns

Nice to be here :D

I read quite a bit still, just rarely respond.

That's an article about abolishing the police. That's a different subject, as I mentioned.

Interesting read though. The author brings up defunding briefly to dismiss it. It reads to me like it was written to start a debate though.

Re: Guns

Chris, my son was assaulted by a police officer when he was in Middle School. I mean, my son was actually in the school, during the school day, on his way to class, playing with a friend of his, being a kid in middle school. We made a complaint and the officer apologised in the most unapologetic man...

Hi Dominique, If you haven't already I suggest you try the email links for Bill (Trumperman) and Gordon (Bernards66). Gordon's is a gmail address so he's likely still at least connected to it, and Bill's is Yahoo. Their email addresses come up when you click the speech bubble next to "contact" on th...

Okay, I'm gonna be that guy.

Evolution does not state that man evolved from apes, but that man and apes share a common ancestor. Much like rhinos and horses.

Re: Nespresso v. Keurig

The Nespresso combined with it's companion frothing device (aeroccino I think) is probably the ideal solution for someone who wants to get as close as possible to a coffee house style latte/cappuccino without falling down the rabbit hole of spending infinite money on professional level grinders and ...

Re: FYI....Leica and Android fans can rejoice!!!

So, I see a red dot on the box, and the word Leica on the camera.
A fine looking phone, apparently not available in the USA.

Re: FYI....Leica and Android fans can rejoice!!!

I'm struggling to see what exactly Huawei can put in their cameras from Leica, without making the phone prohibitively expensive. A Leica lens in a phone camera seems unlikely. Or, that should maybe be a Leica lens in a phone camera under $1500 seems unlikely. Leica's going to “introduce its proven o...

Re: Miniscus tear and surgery

My wife (coincidentally an attorney) blew out her knee pretty comprehensively while skiing a couple of winters ago. She did several weeks of "pre-hab" before her surgery and then wasn't off her feet afterwards very much at all - the pre-hab took time out of her days, obviously, but she was able to g...

Re: What is the best razor for shaving your head?

I have shaved my head with plenty of razors, including straights, GEMs, Feather Cobras, Merkur Progress, Feather two and three blade cartridges, Headblade, and Fusion (on Clive's recommendation). Fusion gives me the best head shaving experience. Head shaving (for me, obviously) is very different fro...

Re: Hair clippers and cutting your own hair

Corded are definitely the way to go if my experience is anything to go by - nothing adds to your style points like running out of battery power halfway through a cut :D , plus the corded ones have a bit more oomph. I shave my head daily now, but initially I would use my Wahl Balding clippers on a su...

I was in Target the other day and, thanks to this thread, had a closer look at the men's shaving section. Just beyond the revolving display of the Fusion with the spring on the orange rubber cylinder was the little section of potentially useable products. Cremo Cream was the one that caught my eye, ...

Re: Trying to pair up Spotify on my phone with my car audio

The HTC device plugs into the auxiliary and then makes it just like your car radio has bluetooth, the sync part isn't a big deal.
