    Back pack tool kits.

    Really depends on what work you intend on needing the tools for, but anyways, a little tip for organizing loose wrenches is to slide sets of them onto carabiners- you can even get different colored ones for easy identification of metric and imperial! Ok that's enough Martha Stewart advice for today.

    There is no such thing as Clean/Green Energy

    I like what you've said here, I've always thought of nuclear power as one of those 'with great power comes great responsibility' types of situations, yes it can be extremely dangerous but on the other hand it is a huge achievement in the progress of energy production, technology, science, and...

    There is no such thing as Clean/Green Energy

    idk guyzz I think OP is onto something here about saying bollocks to alternative energy: -shoot the rich, steal their guzzoline -man lives out mad max/postman-esque fantasy -world burns -woman and feral cats inherit the earth.

    California knife laws

    I'm sorry but WHY would you keep a machete within reach inside the cabin of a vehicle where you have no space to actually utilize a weapon that size.. Steak knife in the visor is a thousand times more practical.

    California knife laws

    You don't ever need to declare a machete as a weapon during a traffic stop, it's widely considered a 'tool' and if you yourself treat it as such you'll receive a lot less attention about it when asked. That question is loaded, mostly for fishing info and while knives might be of some interest to...

    California knife laws

    Also about the length thing: you can open carry a sword if you want provided it's sheathed, attached to your hip, and visible from 3 sides... Not saying you won't get attention but I mean.. It's legal. The stipulation is that *in CA at least and probably, definitely, every other state* you can...

    California knife laws

    I have a small (~3.5") folding pocket knife pretty much on me at all times, mostly for cutting poor rigging or rat-nested lines and such but it also makes its way into pretty much every establishment that doesn't have a metal detector and fits easy enough in a boot to bypass general searches...

    California knife laws

    For example: Johnny has a 4 1/2 inch folding pocket knife that he carries inside his pocket with the usual spring clip. It's not spring assisted but does have a thumb detent on the back of the blade to unfold it - technically illegal if it 'facilitates rapid opening' or some such nonsense- this...

    California knife laws

    This has been discussed before; The knife laws in CA are pretty straightforward, the issue most people end up having is, that officers are usually unaware of, or blatantly disregard (at their discretion) the laws set in place. Partly because they know some kid on the street, let alone anyone...

    Ask me anything about vehicle repair

    @JasonnAngel If you're experiencing the trans slipping, especially when warm- it could be anything from simply incorrect, dirty, or insufficient TF to a leaky torque converter to worn out clutch discs. I'm not familiar with that particular transmission but there a few that get real finicky...

    Ask me anything about vehicle repair

    Not exactly sure what you mean by 'lost gears' but moderate to drastic changes in overall tire/wheel circumference will definitely make a noticeable difference on WHEN the trans will shift gears on both older hydraulic/mechanical auto trans and newer; those electronically controlled with VSS...

    Has anyone plane hopped

    Obviously not nowadays, at least not without serious risk or consequences in any developed country or with any major airline. Anyone remember 'catch me if you can' ? Based on Frank Abagnale's time cashing pan-am checks and posing as a pilot to basically fly all around the world committing...

    @[14199:@Cornelius Vango] it's put me down and out for a few weeks so far but I'm starting to be able to walk on my own again! So supposedly that means no permanent damage which I'm grateful for, just can't wait to be able to hike and have full mobility again.
