    [–] Thoughts, Jeep Peeps? 2dP_rdg 0 points ago in Wrangler

    I really feel like this vehicle is for people that want an H1 but still want to be able to make fun of people with an H1. That bad will be damn near useless. The number one purchase for these will be a bed shell causing most owners to realize "Damn, should have just got the JLU".

    [–] Replaced OPDA on 06 TJ 4.0L, any other non-standard things I need to look at? 2dP_rdg 1 points ago in Wrangler

    I got the Crown OPDA, but I used the new sensor that it came with. I still have the old sensor to reinstall but I had trouble disconnecting it from the OPDA so I just rolled with the new one for now. Plan is to swap the original back in this weekend.

    Not that many centuries ago it was a sign of being wealthy to be fat, because you could afford the food.

    Now it's a sign of wealth to be fit and healthy because you can afford to workout instead of working, and can afford basic food stuffs that aren't super processed and much cheaper.

    [–] Railgun round goes through steel like butter at mach 7 2dP_rdg 1 points ago in gifs

    that scenario has never even been on the list of intentions for use. Particularly because the shooting platform itself would be launched in the opposite direction.

    Railguns are for taking out other vehicles with zero chance of intercepting. As in, a navy ship fires a missile at ground armor or another ship and someone on other side shoots it down or.. you fire this at it and there's no chance of interception or escape, you're just dead.

    PACs aren't campaign funds though, which i believe is he problem. They're independent organizations with their own message blah blah

    [–] Turkey has audio and video evidence showing that Saudi agents tortured & killed journalist Jamal Khashoggi inside the Saudi Consulate in Turkey 2dP_rdg 2 points ago in worldnews

    No, there are not. It's safe to assume that pretty much every embassy, embassy employee quarters, vehicles, etc, are all bugged. Communications lines going in and out of them are likely tapped, etc.

    This may be the most accurate statement on the Internet that I have ever seen. Particularly if you're in Silicon Valley.

    don't believe everything on TV. Most people in embassies are there to do boring shit like approve international marriage attempts between their citizens, or review visa requests (most americans don't realize this because of the luxury they have... but we don't let most nations' tourists into our country without preapproved visas).. blah blah blah

    [–] Recently started an overland build with my 06 fx4. Rear air bags are going on tomorrow 👍🏼 2dP_rdg 1 points ago in overlanding

    I think I support this idea. Looks like it makes for a decent little step in front of your door, still useful as a minor seat/lean to, and it can't catch /that/ many rocks because of the exposure to the wheels isn't that high since your fender is there. Just put some 3M protective tape up there.

    [–] Is my crawlspace the problem? Is it fixable? 2dP_rdg 5 points ago in homeowners

    ^- this. Floors don't lose heat. Ceilings do.

    Insulation won't stop sound from bouncing unless you put it on top of the floors, hang it from the ceilings, etc... sound bounces off of surfaces.. not through them and then back.. If you want to reduce sound travel the most you can do is add some rugs and close some doors.

    Get someone to spray foam (preferred) or spray cellulose (adequate) in your attic, don't use fiberglass batts. Make sure they don't block your soffits and make sure you have a working attic fan or roof ridge lines. You don't want your attic air tight, you just want to make sure air in the house doesn't get into the attic. Attics themselves have to breath and do so by drawing cooler air in from the soffits (at the bottom/lip of the roof) and releasing it through the top of the roof via exhaust fan or ridge vents.

    If, after insulating your attic properly, you still have tremendous heat loss then it's in your walls or drafty windows. Companies that spray cellulose can come in and add it to exterior walls if they were never insulated in the first place. They basically cut a bunch of holes along the ceiling line between all of the studs and spray cellulose in which fills it from bottom to top.

    If you really are concerned about heat loss through the floors then what you need to do is stop the air flow under the house. So once it cools down for the season start closing any vents/etc, and seal up any open areas that let air in. Just remember to re-open them after winter so you get that airflow back, as it's required in warmer weather to prevent mold.

    [–] TIL 48 hours before Deadpool was green lit by 20th Century Fox, the studio cut the film's budget by $7-8 million down to $58 million. Numerous changes were made as a result, such as having Deadpool forget his bag of guns before the final battle sequence to avoid a costly gun fight in the third act. 2dP_rdg 2 points ago in todayilearned

    Honestly? I mean, pretty much any decent businessman is going to say "No" to the idea of finishing it "anyway". It's going to continue to cost money after it's finished, a cost you don't want to incur "just in case". I always tell people I wish there were three things to taught to everyone in regards to business - sunk cost, opportunity cost, and game theory. Sunk costs used to influence business decisions is one of the most common things I see in businesses that mismanage their money. Normally it's because a person refuses to acknowledge a bad idea and keeps funding it, but it can also be because someone decided to hoard 'finished' projects that went unused.

    They burned that 50k but it also saved money. That 50k is a sunk cost. Its gone. You can't use it to influence future business decisions. If they had finished that set then you have extra costs - liability insurance, asset taxes, the cost of that space being occupied (ie preventing another set from being built or just utilities for maintaining it like HVAC/electricity). There's a lot of reasons to just write it off once it's settled that it won't be used.
