    I'm not fond of radical Islam either, but I just think it's not a good idea to brag about such things. Maybe it sets a bad precedent? Better to talk quietly among your friends.

    Dry heat is sure better than wet heat. California vs Asia. Rain is nice in the heat sometimes, and it really cleans you out.

    Though it may be taking care of needed business, it seems a little unfortunate to me, bragging about killing a person. No matter who the dead person is. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/06/22/canadian-sniper-sets-world-record-with-2-1-mile-pickoff-isis-fighter.html

    51.5C is some very serious heat even for brown skins living far away. Once it got up to 45 in my shop. I found it impossible to work, not that the heat was physically debilitating, but the mental powers couldn't function. I noticed myself walking in circles. Over 50, man I don't know... Probably a bucket of water thrown on your bed before laying down.

    A guy brought me a Stihl 023 leaking gas. It was completely missing the tank vent thing, just the bare plastic nipple was sticking out. A carpenter out of work, I ordered him a Chinese one. Hell, they are almost free and no charge for international shipping. :dontknow:

    I'm not referring to anyone in particular, but asking a question of what seems a likely possibility for someone. I have no idea who doesn't honestly pay their taxes. I always pay them myself in two countries, so as a reference I know it's at least doable.

    Great gift. I need a hedge trimmer too. Some gardener friends tell me to get a light one. They have boxes of electric Ryobis, saying that they burn them up. A gas one seems cool.

    What I'm questioning, Justin, is the morality of people being critical of others for one offense, while giving themselves a pass for another. It seems like you are saying that it's a matter of getting caught or not whether that's a question. Well, it's one way to look at it, people can think how they like, maybe even in glass houses, though it seems a bit hypocritical to me.

    I wonder how many people so critical of others that break immigration laws, have willfully cheated on their taxes? That's fraudulent criminal activity and a felony offense, nothing to really give yourself high marks for or be at ease about.

    My worst slivers aside from that one was when I was a kid and rode my bike into a bunch of palm fronds staked up on a sidewalk, and the tips broke off in my knee. My dad was an aspiring doctor but he never went to medical school. God his sliver removal sucked.

    I got a bad sliver once from the stick used to measure log lengths at jobs, ran my hand down it and got poked through my glove. I thought I pulled it out but it must have broke. You couldn't really see it but after a day or two I could definitely tell that it was in there. I went to the hospital but an x-ray doesn't show up wood very well, so got sent home. It started to really swell up and I couldn't bend it, so i went back. Another doctor was on duty, it was late in the day. I told him to take my word for it that it was in there. He said ok then, lets go get it. He gave me some shots to numb then he and a nurse started digging. After about thirty minutes or so he still couldn't find it and the shots were wearing off. He was sweating a lot and it was getting bad for me and he didn't want to give another shot for some reason. He asked if I wanted to continue. I told him again that it was definitely in there. I'm kind of an expert on slivers. He believed me and finally found it poking against the bone way down deep, and after a couple sutures it was definitely time to quit. I will always remember that guy as a good doc, very persistent and believing, and the nurse was on the ball too. I'm lucky that they were on duty. That sliver was a bastard.

    The official fabric wedge pouches that sell for that purpose are pretty useless. I keep my wedges in them when not needing to carry them.

    I was thinking tig welding the fins or making new ones to attach if it was a concern. You wouldn't have to butt the pieces, just lay them on top of the broken fins, then spark and tack.

    Something you can pretty easily learn as a foreigner, if not by your own experience, by what other people will tell you, is not to mess around with immigration.

    I cut and smashed the end of my finger when a kid, after the surgery had to spend the night in the hospital. I had to buzzer the nurse in the middle of the night because it hurt so bad. I remember that after she came in and then left to get the medicine ready, I fell asleep and she then woke me up to give me the shot.

    I think they went a little overboard with decomp valves when they started to put them on fifty some cc saws.

    Cut down a dead Pine leaning over graves and close to a house, two pullers on it. I don't like wearing rubber boots and seldom needed, so don't usually bring them, but it's helpful to be informed that there is swamp conditions on the property if going there blind. :wack: Odd that people don't let you know.

    I was referring to what the article said were people with green cards that were being deported because of earlier violations against the law. Apparently there are those cases as well.

    You can't be squeamish with the big old saws without decamp valves. I have an 076 like that. A good mental attitude along with taking the slack out of the starter rope before giving a very positive yank, seems to help. I rebuilt an 028 from the dump once where even the whole fuel line plastic filter was a blob on the bottom of the tank. I can't remember how I got the gunk out.

    Nothing wrong with experimenting if it doesn't endanger, but speaking for myself, there is so much to constantly learn without adding the questionable things to it.

    I'm a registered alien with working rights, not a citizen where I reside. in a number of those Iraqi cases, they have a similar arrangement by way of having green cards, so they aren't breaking any immigration laws. If a person has a right to live and earn money, has satisfied the requirements to do so, not being a citizen is no grounds for criticism. Maybe they don't want to be a citizen for their own reasons, if they are fulfilling their obligation by paying their taxes there is nothing wrong with keeping another nationality. I think a number of you guys have got it wrong on that. Being previously arrested for crimes, whether that's a matter for deportation is a different subject. I haven't researched it, but aside from not being able to vote, registered aliens are probably subject to most if not all of the same rights and privileges as citizens. Personally, if they have green cards, I think that they are getting a very bum deal. If an illegal alien that's different and it changes the whole game.

    Ah, my mistake, sorry, I should have mentioned that the photo is one I pulled off the web, too lazy to take one at the shop. The one I have looks similar but no brake. The early run of that model didn't have one.

    No chain brake, so it's an early model, I guess introduced around 1973-'74. I ran a 61 for awhile, it wan't mine, but a guy that only had the use of one arm would have me use it at jobs. A good saw I recall.
