    I think public speaking is supposed to be one of the biggest fears most people have. Which makes you an uncommon individual, and gives you a decided advantage over your competition in your local area. In my humble opinion. Tim

    What I mean is I don't think that jumping rope, chair equilibrium and walking blindfolded on a board were part of the job. But nonetheless, I'm really impressed.

    Btw, here is a nice trick to use when watching vids on a computer- I'ts about the letters J,K,and L on the keyboard. Hit J to rewind 10 secs, hit K to pause, hit L to fast forward 10 secs. It's a great way to move around faster in a vid, when necessary

    It’s not the best weed at that price, and there is a 2 oz limit, but yeah.

    I presume the concept is that if they bury your card and it grows flowers, your name will be forever planted in their mind. Very unique, distinctive approach.

    Whoa, that is so cool! I’ve heard of it, but never seen it before. Why would you want people to bury your business cards though? Seems kinda stupid.

    I have some serious doubts about these rings for heavy rigging applications. As I understand it, the most important single factor in rigging systems with a dynamic load is the length of the rope between the load and the belay point. Rock climbers use the term “fall factor” to describe the severity of a fall, which is the ratio of the fall distance to the length of rope in the system available to absorb the fall. Wouldn’t these rings dramatically shorten the amount of rope in the system? Isn’t this exactly why we’ve always used pulleys instead of a much simpler/lighter/less expensive shackle or biner? And that’s just if you’re only concerned about fall factor. But if bend radius is what really gets you going, then isn’t that yet another thing that pulleys do better than rings? And then there’s the temperature issue. Obviously the rings have got to be made out of aluminum or else such a small piece of metal would quickly get so hot it might damage the rope. But anybody who has ever had to remove the rope from a hot figure 8 after a long rappel will know that even aluminum can get hot enough to damage rope. Again, isn’t that just another reason to use a pulley instead of a ring? I’m having trouble seeing the benefit here.

    I may be looking at it wrong but if the middle ring is a little higher than the outer rings it does decrease the bend. It does take a few more seconds to get the perfect height. Taking into consideration that the middle ring will have more than 1/3 of the load. Which will cause it to be pulled down more than the outer rings. But in a perfect setup, if it is higher it will decrease the bend just like the top of the pulley is higher than the sides. If a pulley had a flat spot on top it would have a decreased bend. Realistically this wouldn't ever matter as I don't usually push my rigging that hard. A ring would be slightly harder on the rope than a pulley. But not near as rough as natural crotch rigging. I've been using a Safebloc for about a year. I rarely use anything else anymore unless it's negative rigging huge blocks. The Safebloc has a tighter bend than I like but it's spread out over 3 or 4 different bends depending on how many holes I use. The only downside so far is it's starting to groove out. I've already had to turn it upside down.

    I still can?t believe that weed is legal. I never thought this day would come. It?s been legal in Washington now for several years and things have settled down. None of the dire predictions came true. Growers and retailers have been legally established and chains begun to form. The state tests it, so quality is better. Also the price has dropped through the floor ($65/oz in Seattle). And the selection at most stores is incredible.

    Not a snip - the entire follicle's needed. Hair tests last up to a year and cost more to administer.

    I think it stays in your hair a long time? So they cut a snip and test that?

    That makes sense. I took from Stig's earlier post that Hells Angels wrested control of the drug biz from another faction, but what you posit makes more sense.
