It would not be a thread on Air Forums unless it gets hijacked at least 3 times. #14 should be bumped up to #5 then sprinkled throughout.

And everyone has exactly the same opinions on everything. Everyone has the same trailer, the same compulsions, obsessions, the same fears, the same oversized tow vehicle, 2.3 children plus dog and cat, the same bank account, interests, beige curtains, blue sweat pants and the same opinions on politics, gun control, and cookie cutters.
Like our own little version of the Stepford Wives.
I believe you are simply wrong about this, Ultradog.

There is plenty of sarcasm, argument, dissension and contention here.....but limits as to how far one can go, and that is for good reason.

I also disagree that we are all the same. There is a great deal of diversity, actually, and a full range of opinion and approach to most everything.

You are not reading enough threads, in my opinion.

Life and death of a thread

Ultradog does have a point, there is a strong and ever increasing expectation of a kind of conformity.





Brevi tempore!

Either you are being sarcastic or you're projecting your fears onto a thread you know nothing about. Either way, very clever!

Here is what I do not understand:

People who know nothing about the design/development/testing of a vehicle casually advice other folks to ignore the manufacturer ratings. They usually have some anecdotal evidence that its going to be "fine" doing so.

Others warn that ignoring the manufacturer ratings may not be a good idea. They are immediately labeled as fear mongers/trolls/etc.

Where has common sense gone?

A lot of this ugliness and bickering could be prevented if the original poster was a bit more clear about the answers they are really looking for.

I have come to the conclusion that 90 percent of the treads that sound like "I want to try to do XXX, what do y'all think?" can be translated to "I am GOING TO DO XXX, and want your encouragement." I am probably guilty of starting threads in this way myself. Anyway, I am trying harder to interpret the OP's real intention and only be encouraging when requested, and silently untroubled otherwise.

The other side of that coin might be that it is anti common sense to say something that has been done for decades cant be done.

While a person does not have to agree with this position, but it should be acknowledged nonetheless.

I fancy myself an armature student of science. One of the things that has become clear is that virtually all of science (excepting "pure mathematics") is ultimately based on empirical evidence.

I look at the death of a thread as if the thread were a thread on a sweater. It gets pulled and pulled until there is nothing left of substance. At which time a mod steps in and and snips it.

So you study taxidermy? Given the amount of metal holding my feet together, I quit seeing my podiatrist and go to a taxidermist instead!

For some reason my podiatrist thinks that one is funny. Good thing someone does!

Okay, seriously, I know you meant "armchair" But how on Earth did spell-check— or auto-complete if sent from a phone— get "armature" from "armchair"? Now THAT is a mystery of modern science!
