Has that bike ever run? by wiredog (2.00 / 0) #1 Fri Sep 24, 2010 at 10:54:43 AM EST
Seems all you do is repair it.

Oh sure, in the beginning by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #2 Fri Sep 24, 2010 at 10:58:34 AM EST
I used pod air filters and strips of flashing restricting the airflow it ran great, I think I got 3k that year.

The trouble came when I rebuilt the carbs and found a stock air filter. Now I'm trying to get it back.

Plus there's a leak on the crankshaft, I need to get it running for a few miles to see if I fixed it.

Maybe I should just punt and work on the CB550.

captain cave man by clover kicker (2.00 / 0) #5 Fri Sep 24, 2010 at 11:12:35 AM EST
National Geographic likes caves, every year or 2 they have a nice article/photo spread. 1 thing stuck in my memory, a bottleneck so tight that the recommended technique was to exhale completely and wiggle thru while your chest was that much smaller.

My only actual cave experience is a tourist cave tour somewhere close to San Antonio, they did a fantastic job digging out easily walkable paths, steps etc. to some impressive galleries. Indirect lighting everywhere, it's beautiful.

Those deepest caves and cavers by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #6 Fri Sep 24, 2010 at 11:18:30 AM EST
were often mentioned in National Geographic. The Mexican Cave expeditions were run by Bill Stone, who also developed a practical rebreather, which was needed as parts of those Mexican caves were flooded.

They do go into one underknown feat, where Stone and his flavor of the year used the only two rebreathers on the expedition to swim way beyond help and explore never before seen caves, called scooping booty in caver speak. One wrong step there and someone would die, there was no way to rescue someone seriously injured.

The Ural caves had an underwater spot that was a real tight fit, 30 feet long, and cavers had to swim through it holding their breath. Ughh.

It doesn't sound like it by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #10 Fri Sep 24, 2010 at 01:36:46 PM EST
but my culturally appropriate holiday acknowledgements are all from a Catholic perspective, so I was wondering what to say to the Jews I see walking to Temple.

Quills isn't a Kate Winslet movie by Scrymarch (4.00 / 1) #13 Fri Sep 24, 2010 at 06:35:06 PM EST
It's a Geoff Rush movie, though Kate is good in it :)

I didn't mind it though the violence was a bit much. I remember a reviewer saying there's a fairly radical anti-liberal thesis in Quills. It's all about the danger of words and the way change people's behaviour, ie the exact opposite of the usual free speech position that words can be safely separated from the action they describe.

Yeah, the Priest's point was interesting by georgeha (4.00 / 1) #14 Fri Sep 24, 2010 at 09:20:03 PM EST
De Sade could rid himself of his compulsions by writing them down, until the other dude took away his writing implements (hence the title Quills).

Yeah, it wasn't a real Winslet film, and we didn't watch it enough to see her naked, but based on imdb, we probably didn't want to see that part anyhow.

Also, I don't vote for candidates who disclose their religious preferences or talk about "family values."

I saw Quills in college by riceowlguy (2.00 / 0) #18 Wed Sep 29, 2010 at 04:50:16 PM EST
Certain scenes have always stayed in my memory, particularly the memory of Ms. Winslet's face as she chatted with her friends about the Marquis' writings...I'll be in my bunk.
