    [–] "Why yes, fireworks are illegal in Los Angeles. Why do you ask?" WrestleMe 87 points ago in funny

    Fireworks can start fires, which can cost millions of dollars to put out.

    [–] Singles of Reddit, what's your biggest dating struggle right now? WrestleMe 12 points ago in AskReddit

    You're already in a routine. The hard part is breaking that one to start a new routine.

    [–] Does tinder still throttle matches? WrestleMe 3 points ago in Tinder

    I don't know if they throttle matches, but when I deleted my account and remade it, my tinder gold reactivated. On Android, not sure about Apple.

    I've never heard of a top guard on a chainsaw. Sometimes you need to cut with the top of the saw.

    [–] F-22 Super-Maneuverability Demonstration WrestleMe 8 points ago in aviation

    I'm taking a class on the history of air and spacecraft, and the professor for it was the project manager at Lockheed for the design of the F-22.

    [–] Wood Scales WrestleMe 1 points ago in coolguides

    So are isohydric trees using the CAM pathway for photosynthesis or is that a separate thing?

    [–] Wood Scales WrestleMe 5 points ago in coolguides

    So with trees, the xylem is what we think of as the wood. It's mainly used as the water transport and waste storage of the tree (that's why heartwood is usually a darker color).

    The phloem is the tissue just under the bark that transfers sugars from the leaves to the roots. If you damage the phloem all the way around the tree enough, you basically starve the roots. This will slowly kill the tree. It'll take awhile for it to die depending on its size and how quickly it will dry out. This is called girdling.

    [–] Stunning Footage from the Front Lines of California's Wildfires WrestleMe 1 points ago in videos

    Yeah most state-run hand crews in California are inmate crews (with the exception of CCC crews). It's a volunteer only thing, and can only be non-violent criminals I'm pretty sure.

    [–] Hollow WrestleMe 2 points ago in memes

    Yeah exactly! The xylem is the inner wood used for water transport to the leaves, and the phloem is the outer living tissue mainly used for sugar transport to the roots.

    [–] Hollow WrestleMe 2 points ago in memes

    Also true! Lots of reasons for that happening to trees.

    [–] Hollow WrestleMe 13 points ago in memes

    Forestry major here!

    Basically, the inside of a tree (what everyone thinks of as the wood) is dead vessels used for water transport. The only truely living parts of the tree are the outer layer and the leaves.

    As for why some trees look like this, it could be many reasons. One of the common reasons I see is from fire. The fire burns away the outer layer on one side, but leaves the other side intact. It'll then smoulder inside the tree burning the wood, but can leave most of the living outer tissue undamaged.

    [–] August monthly WrestleMe 7 points ago in Pararescue

    I'm starting to finally feel like I'm getting somewhere with training. I haven't timed a 1.5 mile on a track yet (no easy access to a track this summer; I've mostly been running hills and trails), but i can probably get somewhere in the lower 9 minute area. Push-ups are somewhere in the 60 or 70s. Pull-ups are at 16. Sit-ups are at 50, but that's a lot better than where it was a month ago. I'm going to take a swim conditioning class after the summer, and will be in the pool a lot more in general so I'll hopefully be able to get a 500m freestyle in a decent time. I'm 5'7", 180 lbs.

    My current plans are to finish up my last year in college, then get a job as an EMT-B (I have my cert, I just need to get my ambulace driving cert) back in my hometown where I can live rent free. I'll do that for 1 or 2 years while I prepare for the physical side of things of pararescue. I'm still trying to decide whether to enlist or go officer, any advice anyone can offer would be great. Thanks everyone, have a great August, and keep up the good work.

    Yeah that is. I recently had to watch parts of this during a WWII history class. Pretty cool seeing him in that.

    [–] Propeller way to put out a fire WrestleMe 1 points ago in HumansBeingBros

    Mostly in the timber industry, wildland firefighting, or environmental consulting.

    [–] Propeller way to put out a fire WrestleMe 5 points ago in HumansBeingBros

    You could look up fire supression in the US, Wikipedia should have a fairly extensive article on it. I'm not sure of any good videos on it, I'm a forestry student right now and have been learning about it in my classes.

    [–] Propeller way to put out a fire WrestleMe 21 points ago in HumansBeingBros

    Native Americans had been setting fires for thousands of years in the west because it was better for hunting. Deer love the regrowth and grasses that sprout after fire, so as they were leaving an area they'd set fires for better hunting the next season. The only difference between "natural" fires and most fires we have now is the amount of fuel loading we have now, thanks to 100 years of fire suppression.

    I'm currently a forestry student, and was just in the Sierra Nevadas over the weekend for a silviculture field trip. The beetle kill up there is crazy. Every single dead tree had beetle galleries, and some dead white firs even had western pine beetles in it.

    [–] 2017 April Monthly Thread! WrestleMe 1 points ago in Pararescue

    Sorry, meant 7:30 pace. Haven't timed myself on a 1.5 mile yet.

    [–] 2017 April Monthly Thread! WrestleMe 1 points ago in Pararescue

    Hey everyone, I'm 21, 5'7", 178, My PAST numbers are 1.5 mile run: sub-7:30 (7:30 is my 2-3 mile pace), 500m swim: N/a (I'm still working on swimming, been getting in the pool at least 3 times a week trying to improve), 18 pull-ups, and unsure on pushups and situps, but fairly confident with them.

    I've wanted to join the military since I was about 12. I originally wanted to be a Navy Corpsman (like my mother), but when senior year of high school rolled around, my mother told me I was going to college (she retired from the Navy, so the VA would pay my tuition to some schools), so I went to college. I ended up going to school for Forestry, which led me thinking I was going to go into a career in Wildland firefighting. Recently, I've been considering the military again, and when I found out about the PJs, I started training for it. I currently have about 1 year left in my degree, so I'm planning on finishing that out then enlisting or going the officer route. The reason why I want to be a PJ is that emergency medicine is what I want to do, and to be frank, the motto speaks to me. I'll be around on here from time to time, just wanted to introduce myself. Good luck to any other wannabe PJs out there.
