  1. I've got a Mango, too. A 5-mile hike with her new weighted vest buys me about 90 minutes of peace and quiet. I'm just glad that it's cooled down enough to burn some of her energy outside rather than watch her pinball around the house.
  2. I never notice it shut down during a cycle, but when I go to start a new load I realize its been tripped. I may be able to reach a different outlet to see if that makes a difference. Thanks for the input.
  3. I bought a used washer that has worked fine for the last year. Recently, it started tripping the braker every few wash cycles. I would love to limp along for the next 3 months until I move and get a new one anyway, but also don't want to burn the house down. Any thoughts on what's going on that would cause this and how urgent of a problem it is to correct? My location and hours make it difficult to get a repair guy to come out and take a look.
  4. As a Wise county resident for 13 months longer than I could have ever imagined, color me shocked that such fuckery could be afoot in this shithole.
  5. More fun, this time about plastic recycling. https://www.npr.org/2020/09/11/897692090/how-big-oil-misled-the-public-into-believing-plastic-would-be-recycled?utm_campaign=storyshare&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_medium=social
  6. https://www.bbc.com/news/amp/science-environment-54091048?__twitter_impression=true We are doing an exceptional job of destroying everything. Who needs wildlife when you can just have a world of people, cows, pigs and chickens?
  7. https://arstechnica.com/science/2020/08/black-paint-on-wind-turbines-helps-prevent-bird-massacres/ no word on cancer rates I'm 2 species shy of 400, so I care. Not climate related, but we could also turn off lights at night, especially in the spring and fall, keep cats inside and make slight changes to windows to make them more visible to birds. But why make any changes when we could keep doing the same shit and continue to wipe species off the globe? Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  8. Got my mail in ballot application today, tore it up and tossed it in the trash. Just updated my drivers license address so these Wise county motherfuckers can't give me any shit when I go to vote in person on the first day of early voting.
  9. After mostly controlling myself for the last 4 years (excluding the occasional alcohol-fueled family holiday) in regards to my parents Trump support, the dam is starting to break. I try not to instigate too much, but the recent blatant racism in the leadup to the election is just too much. If he is going to vote for that asshole, I want him to at least experience some shame or realize that his children respect him less than they once did for that indefensible decision. It's all so maddening and depressing...
  10. They are both bikers and boaters, so I guess I should just count it as a win that they weren't part of Sturgis or any of the stupid ass boat parades. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  11. "I don't argue there are idiots out there. But they exist on both sides." Damn it, just got Anastasis'd by my own father in response to the minority invasion of suburbia. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  12. I don't stop by the thread for one day and miss out on a bird ID. I guess I've never gotten such a good look at a juvie kite perched because that one stumped me for a minute too, even though I see adults every day in the summer. Juvenile raptors are tough IDs for sure Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  13. Having lived in Decatur (not by choice) for the last year, I can't say that I'm surprised. My neighbors have approximately 15 cars parked around the cul-de-sac on any given evening, so the people out here are really testing their luck. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  14. Kind of like the pandemic. Half-ass some shit for a short period of time to say we tried, then give up and let nature run its course. Bold strategy, let's see if it pays off for us. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  15. I play this fun game with myself every weekend where I think "I'll wake up early and take the puppy for a hike before it gets too hot. Then, she will be too tired to bother me when we get home and I can get shit done." Inevitably, I end up napping and Mango wakes me up to remind me there is shit to do.
