Yeah same way Biden "won". It's another situation where the cities control the state. Plus I have zero faith in the election integrity in this state, or country for that matter
That is an interesting thing to note.. Ive just noticed that with the results of this election.. I was looking at "Blue States" where the vast majority is Red other than a couple major cities..
Got me thinking, why is it that most big cities become Blue? or.. most Blue voters flock to big cities maybe? Dont know.. interesting though.

Education plays a large part in this whether people agree with me or not.
And I am not saying that Group A has more or less intelligence than Group B.

America is largely stupid......and DC is certainly not immune to stupidity.

This is why some (many?) want to abolish the Electoral College... so big cities like NY, Chicago, Seattle, San Fran, LA, etc., can dictate national election results and rule over the other 300,000,000 citizens. Pure BS!

Dang.. I guess I really should go ahead and get my last mow in for the year then.. I doubt it'll be growing much after the last couple of warm days we just had.
Be safe out there. Have yet to see any deer in my area. We just see the normal skunks and armadillo on our roadsides..

Sorry to hear about your foot Eric but glad it's not something worse. Take an old man's advice and don't rush it and let it heal properly.
Yeah in not going to push it. On the bright side I've banging out some of my oem training. Should have my master cert done by tomorrow night. Then onto my ASE certs. I don't really care much about the certifications but my pay will see a nice bump once I'm master certified so that's a plus lol.

Mowed mine last weekend and I'm hoping that was it for now. Hasn't grown too much so far and now that we're getting the cold front later today, that should put a stop on the growth pretty soon.

It'll be damn brutal to go from 75-80 to freaking 50-55. 🥶 My wife's been in Tenerife in The Canary Islands the past 10 days and is coming back on Sunday. Sent her a screenshot of the forecast for next week and asked if she REALLY wants to come back. :ROFLMAO:

Send her some money and tell her to stay another week so that you can get stuff done that you really wanted to do without interruption.
That's what I do.

So through Navistar, diamond certified is the top level. That means you've done all the online training, and are current with the hands on classes. Master is one step below that, which is all the online courses. That's what I'll be done with within the next day or two.

Then there's the ASE certs. The highest in that is master truck (for my field).

Paid $2.89 for gas this morning.

Also, there was a huge dead hog with guts all over the road on the way to work this morning.
That's 4 animals hit in two days less than 5 miles from my house. Not good.

Yeah,, last week I was headed North and came a cross an accident scene, as i passed by I saw it was a newer car with the front smashed pretty good,, and a medium sized deer in the road just in front of it!
A pretty rare site out here as we do not have allot of open ground that has not been developed into housing. Although the area where this happened was a green belt, a thin green belt but rarely do we see wild animal activity!

To change the subject......

There has been a good deal of discussion lately on another thread (me included,) about HIDs vs. LEDs.
I didn't put this in the actual thread, because I'm not doing the comparative analysis in a Silverado or Sierra.....the reason being that it's difficult to R&R the bulbs, and I use the truck to often to disrupt it and experiment.

Anyway, the backstory....My two Trans Ams both use(d) the large square sealed beam. (H4666.) On both cars I installed The Hella HID housing kits with Hella 100/80W, H4 HID bulbs, (link below,) due to the night driving that I do.....and they were a vast improvement.

Driven by the discussion, I decided to try some of the "latest and greatest" LED technology in the reflector housings, and I'll report back when I change them out. I've been happy with "Auxito" in other places on the truck, (and other cars I own,) so I bought the ones I also linked to below to try. (They were $60.)

We'll see.....I'm mostly interested in a cut-off and scatter comparison. The brightness will be secondary.
