I'm pissed off that apparently it takes some people a good 16 months to figure out that a forum pisses them off.

There are a bunch of people that have knotted knickers within a few weeks of joining, I'm good with that.

Seriously, I've grown rather fond of this forum.

Now carry on with your endless discussions of dogs, cats, caravans, Urals, razors, sheds, bicycles, rocketry, photography and the like.

I think that your view is pretty narrow minded.

It takes less more effort not to open a thread than it does to read it so if you don't find the title enticing don't open it.

It's a bit like going into strip joint and complaining that the sports channel is on.

Just ignore it.

The paltry selection of metric hardware in US big box hardware stores. I'm really sick of it. Infuriating every time I go to look for something and the drawers are either so disorganized from people putting things back wrong spots, or nothing actually being restocked, or empty bags that people have stolen things out of.

In 2019 why must we suffer this concept that americans only need a very limited selection of M6-M10 hardware, or that its acceptable to stock little baggies with 4 metric washers for 5x the price? Why can't I find an M12 flanged nut (or insert any other generic metric hardware that doesn't fit this limited concept of need in america) within driving distance?

This is why I shop on amazon so much. Actual stores don't stock shit!

BTW, I think I'm the only person who actually pays for any of this crap, given the regularity with which there are empty bags looted left in drawers. I regularly point out nuts and washers that the cashiers forget to charge me for (guilty conscience).

Oh and another thing! Don't even get me started on self checkout. I tried to do it at Home Depot the other day cause they had one actual cashier with a huge line. I was buying nuts and bolts figuring I could just type in the letter codes like they do at the cash registers. Nope. the OS doesn't allow you to do it, so I called the attendant over and asked them to help, then she berated me for going to self checkout with nuts and bolts cause I was distracting her from watching for people trying to walk out without paying as if it was my fault. I said "not my fault, your being paid to stand here and help self checkout customers. that's all im asking you do to. And by the way, your company is essentially forcing me to do an employees job for myself cause they only ever have one person running registers at all times. So be pissed off at them for not building their operating system to allow me to do someone elses job efficiently."

I don't know if Ace Hardware exists where you are, but around here it's THE go-to place for metric nuts'n'bolts. Also, Harbor Freight has all its tools in both metric and SAE (where that's important) - except, strangely, for drill bits.

Finding a tape measure with metric on it is very hit and miss though.

Yeah I buy all my metric tools from Harbor Freight, but the nuts and bolts are hit or miss everywhere near me. Regularly, my search for metric hardware involves driving 30 min away to the big Home depot, then stopping at 4 places all the way back home checking each one to see if each has what I am looking for. Lowes tends to be the better of the options for my location, but again its very limited selection not regularly stocked. There is one or two Ace Hardware but they are not very popular around here and are much smaller. I will try to check it out, but my luck with smaller mom and pop hardware stores is equally depressing.

EDIT: correction. there is 1 Ace Hardware anywhere near me.

I will ask it to a she friend who has an HD 883 Iron ... but the women here do not deal with mechanics or maintenance of vehicles, often they do not even know how to inflate the tires and my is not maschilism; they drive only.

I arrived home last night, parked in the garage, took off my helmet & gloves, & went to check the mail. Went back in, and started to unwind from the day.

20-30 minutes later, my wife arrives home and asked me about the tree limb in the yard. I had no idea what she was talking about. So we went outside and discovered a tree limb had fallen from the pecan tree in the front yard, and had bounced off the roof.

I filed an insurance claim with the State Farm app, while my wife checked and learned that there was no rain forecast for the next 7-10 days.

(story to be continued in things that make me happy thread)

Buy the one with double scale (meters and inches), I use it because in us the irrigation systems are in inches.

The good news? I got cleared for gout... Ain't nobody that wants to get that nasty condition. The bad news... I have a bone bruise on my left foot. It's been going on for a few months now and taking forever to heal. The pain is absolutely insane and not much that can be done about it but ice, rince, repeat. I have another condition that has me on pretty serious pain medication that helps but still barely touches it and that is saying a lot about the level of pain here. Again happy it's not gout but man this sucks...

My own screw up!
We were doing some lawn mowing this afternoon and I had moved the two Harleys and wife's GTV300 out so we could get the mowers out.

Just as I finished up with the push mower it started to sprinkle so I decided I'd better move some bikes back in barn where they are stored while work is being done an drive to garage.

First rolled in the GTV and put it up on center stand. Next started rolling the Sportster with the sidecar in to the barn. That's when the screw up happened, the fender on the sidecar bumped the rear of the GTV an nudged it off the center stand and laid it on it's side!

Stood it back up and did not look bad until I noticed the right mirror was way out of adjustment. When I tried to rotate it on it's stalk something inside the shell that holds the mirror glass went crunch and now it barely holds it's adjustment sitting still. Dam!Dam! Double Dam!

Have new mirror ordered but not sure if they are in stock. Might have to try some JB Weld to hold it for now. Just need to get it adjusted right and hope it stays while epoxy sets!

Look for epoxy putty and you can mold it to fit as needed.

I hate things like this. I just bought a bunch of socks. Shortly after I received them they went on sale at 40 percent off.

I didn't do it this time, but sometimes if you ask they will apply the discount or, in your case, the premium. Worth a try.

I'm in luck. I contacted them and said I hadn't received delivery of the radio yet, and I wanted to know if I needed to refuse delivery and reorder the radio, or could they just give me the $10 warranty. They gave me the warranty.

Almost getting taken out 3 times within a BLOCK on my morning commute.

2 of the dirvers didn't turn their head or look before doing a lane change that almost took me out. The 3rd did see me and slowed to let me pass before they did their illegal lane change.

Stay vigilant friends and keep the rubber on the road!!!

Modern day make up for women.

False eye lashes, painted in eye brows, lipstick like the colour of a So Cal Hot Rod and jet black hair.

You look like an angry sex doll.

Not so modern though, craps been around for ever. Anyone remember the late 80's and 90's? I like my women in makeup BUT natural and that has been the case for every girl I have dated and of course my wife.

Na it's got far worse with the invention of the smart phone especially in the last 7 to 10 years.

It'e even more funny when there's a line of while skin on the neck and chin where the " colour" runs out.

The contrast of the "tone", eyeliner and hair plus the oversized eye lashed just gives you the look of a tiny tears that's just been dropped on the carpet.

It's as if the owners of this look are trying to create a parody of a face rather than the look of a natural one.

It's supposed to enhance you not make you look vacant.

It's fucking hilarious and pathetic at the same time.

IN the last week we've had a tornado hit locally, hail/rain and snow. While also having hit nearly 100 degrees. It's just the radical shift in temperature.

45f to 75f drive me nuts when I lived in Ft. Worth. You wanted to dress like winter in the morning, but summer in the afternoon. This northern boy didn't like it much, so moved back north after 3 years. Winter is winter, summer is summer, spring and autumn are a bit unpredictable.

Rain
Wet here too. Thunderstorms like I can't recall when. Started at 5 a.m. with a thunderstorm and inch of rain, settled down for a bit, then poured again. Driving home was the same. Only four inches of rain for the day, but the way it fell, caused flooding throughout town. The ground was already pretty saturated by prior rain. We're still under flood watch for the next two hours.

Direction of movement pushes all that heavy rain in our direction. Great.
