  8. Try this stuff........ Scottish brewery Brewmeister has made the strongest beer in the world, clocking in at 67.5 percent ABV. The subtly named Snake Venom is brewed with a one-two punch provided by doses of beer and Champagne yeasts.
  9. Only in "Smallville" out here On my way to get groceries this morning I stopped at a new gas station quite near the Mall to get a cup of hot chocolate. As I walked up, I noticed 2 police officers watching a woman who was smoking while fueling her car. I saw her and thought, is this lady stupid, crazy, or both, especially with the police standing RIGHT there..But anyways, I minded my own business and went inside and got my beverage. As I was paying for my drink, I heard someone screaming!! Like I’m talking violent death screams!! I looked outside and I saw that this woman
  10. plan to wean the space station off NASA's public funding of $3 billion to $4 billion per year. So lets say the average cost is 3.5 B /yr , even with the "customers" up there. Lifespan is 8 more years so the cost would be 28B Imagine what that could do to START to clean up the environment Yes, I know I am urinating into the wind but it is unbelievable what it has cost, and will cost, and the return for humanity is so negligible.

  16. Can't get the video to play but I would consider fixing a toilet anywhere as a crappy job.......
  17. I had a 4 then a 6 and last Christmas my daughter gave me an iPhone 11. Lots of "doo-dads" and functions on it I do not use but what really impresses me is the battery life.
  18. Maybe the dog only understands Spanish......maybe the adopting family speaks Spanish. I have noticed that many dogs owned by Francophones do not say "bow-wow", they say woofe'- woofe' . Gotta watch the language issue all over the world..
  19. Notice that the 6 S Plus (boestar)..is not mentioned but the iPhone 6 Plus is stuck at ios 12
  20. Not obsolete...Those that produced the app felt that most Canadians had moved up to newer phones. They were aware that it would not work on iPhone 6 or earlier iPhones but felt if they prefaced the production of the app and made that fact known they would be seen as Apple and Samsung promoters.....so little if anything was said when the App was launched. However it created an uproar when it was found that many had not upgraded their phones and were complaining about it to Health Canada.....I dunno, but I guess they were in a hurry to get the app out there before COVID was over but......li
  21. ....... Individuals can carry personal locator beacons; ships, pleasure craft, and aircraft can store beacons on board in case of emergency, which Cospas-Sarsat uses to determine their position....... Based on my experience in SAR (RCC HFX) the biggest problem is the reluctance of persons to carry PLB because of the human tendency to disregard the possibility of requiring help, (I'm never gonna get lost, I'll never have a problem where I am going etc) In addition is the cost of acquiring a beacon, they are relatively expensive, $200.00-$500.00 depending on what features you want. Today mo
  22. Apparently three companies are going to be involved................. The trio – consisting of Kestrel Aviation Management, Camber Aviation Management, and Pierrejean Vision, recently unveiled their ideal A220 private jet cabin concept in June.
