  1. "Trout in the Classroom" is a program that puts trout eggs into inner city schools, let's the kids hatch and raise the fry, then organizes day trips to a wild trout stream for a release. Below is a copy of the email that just went out with contact info. If anyone in the NYC/Westchester area has a morning to give, I think they will find is pretty rewarding. NYC Trout in the Classroom Volunteer Call NYC-area TU members … it’s time to give back! As everyone knows, the NYC TU chapter has made "Trout in the Classroom" (TIC) a priority in the past few years. The opportunity to introduce inner-city kids to the life cycle of trout, the biology of stream life, and the importance of clean fresh water has become a vital part of what we do to further our education mandate. Now we need volunteers to help the kids release the fry they’ve grown in the classroom into a wild trout stream. The releases take place at Ward Pound Ridge and typically over by noon which leaves plenty of time for an easy afternoon of fishing. We have caught multiple wild brook trout at Wards as well as some of the nearby streams. Remember that many of these kids have never had the opportunity to engage with nature and stand in a wild stream. All of our members who have helped have said that this was one of the more fulfilling give-back volunteering tied to our mutual hobby and mission. There are multiple days in April and May that we need to fill as there are over 1500 students going to Ward Pound in April and May from over 28 schools from NYC. Students range from 50 to 100 per day and the volunteers needed are two to four for each release depending on the number of kids. In total, we need 64 anglers to step in the water and help these kids connect with the environment. As a volunteer, you will wade into the stream with kick nets and collect aquatic macroinvertebrates then help the students identify the different food sources of the trout. Bring your waders! Please take a look at the sign-up sheet and select a day or two that you can offer your time and knowledge to these kids. For city residents, we may be able to coordinate rides up to Ward Pound Ridge. https://signup.com/client/invitation2/secure/2730064/false#/invitation For further information please contact: Kevin Noble http://[email protected] 917-992-2492
  2. If not that then at least he should seek professional help from Jilted Ex-Girlfriends Anonymous.
  3. Naw. Just here for the lulz and the t-shirt. Trump is back on social media? I guess his platform failed. Again. But that's great, really. Do you think there will be a red wave? You're like the Robert Merrill of HNY. But not as well dressed I would think.
  4. In the late 80s, the plastics industry came up with a symbol to identify different types of plastic. Coincidentally, it looks exactly like the recyclable symbol created in the 1970s. They did so to encourage you to use more plastic, as prior to this people were saving plastic containers. Enter single-use plastic. The beach I'm currently on in Mexico is filled with single-use bottles and caps.
  5. Whoa ... those are a lot of numbers. Here's a few more. Biden ... amirite?
  6. To be fair, it was Grouse so I don't feel I have to try particularly hard.
  7. You forgot the exclamation marks and ending with your favourite "FACT". Fail.
  8. This a compelling and incontrovertible argument made more powerful by the rectangle, colour red and the trees - which so beautifully represent the founder's first Christmas wrapping paper. Nevermind the use of all caps on the word "NOT" which literally burns into the souls of the libtards. I also see that you cleverly refrained from using three exclamation marks, no doubt saving them for a brilliant retort to any counter argument. "Oh yeah, libtard? Take THIS!!!" Have you considered marching to the Supreme Court (which is open to the public) and presenting the evidence? And if by chance they won't let you in, kicking the door down? After all ...
  9. I'm going to guess that the house reps have their hands full shitting up the simple task of electing a speaker. And tearing each other up. Meanwhile, MTG says the thing that the rest of the country is thinking. And now back to Trump. Such constitution. I mean ...
  10. 1. Invent alcoholic cooler with Kool-Aid. Call it Kool-Are 2. Open bar and serve Kool-Are with bilge and relish 3. ???? 4. Profit!!! (Which I have to cut Robby in for a piece.)
  11. I forgot to add moccamaster to the above list. Yes, there's something important about the full sense experience. However, due to their market dominance, Nespresso buys and produces pretty damned good coffee. I had a built-in Miele Nespresso machine in my apt which was the bane of my existence. Previous owner had put it in to the tune of $2200, but Miele stopped making it five years before I bought. They were happy to fix it though every time it broke down. And it broke down a lot. Since it was built in and I didn't have anything to put in that spot, I just kept fixing it. Happy to see that one go. There's a roastery around to corner from my Mexican place and I'm enjoying some nice mountain-grown coffee every day. Good thread, Al.
  12. I have made coffee with a percolator, french press, drip brewer, single pour over, chemex, aeropress and nespresso. And with everything from shitty grocery store beans to very expensive shade-grown single-origin freshly ground beans. This is the best cup of coffee I've ever had at home. Brewing Great Cowboy Coffee Add water to your pot and bring it to a boil. Once the water’s boiling, remove the pot from your fire and let it sit for 30 seconds. This will lower the water temperature to 200°F — the perfect temperature for brewing coffee. Add 2 tablespoons of finely ground coffee for every 8 ounces of water. (You may want to measure how much water your pot holds and how much coffee a spoon you bring holds before going camping so you can measure accurately.) Stir the grounds into the water. Let the brew sit for 2 minutes and stir again. Let the coffee sit for 2 more minutes. After a total of 4 minutes of brewing, sprinkle a little cold water on the grounds. Yes, this actually does help them settle to the bottom. Slowly pour the coffee, so the grounds remain on the bottom of the pot.
  13. Don't disagree that sometimes I'm articulate and other times I'm a complete moran - a fairly old yet still funny meme. My point is that Musk is acting like a utter idiotic manchild. Fire them! Rehire them! Free speech! Unless you make fun of me then banned! So much fun to watch. This is an interesting take on why he is failing so badly. https://www.businessinsider.com/elon-musk-business-playbook-boss-visionary-jerk-spacex-tesla-twitter-2022-12
  14. Exactly! Actually, I'm not really sure what that means or how it's a rebuttal to Musk is a moran, but I felt you needed the encouragement. Go get em, Tiger!
  15. Never stop being you, dude. It's crazy, right? My suggestion - go onto a niche hunting forum and carp about it non stop. Win friends and influence people!
  16. I've talked shit on Trump for years, so that's not new. Musk is a new fun game, in that it's so shocking how much of an idiotic man-child he is. The midterms showed that the country (D, R, I's) rejected Trumpism and his nutbar lickspittles. Humiliating loss for the GOP, but shows that the system does work. I would say that the GOP is in right shape right now. What will be interesting is how much Trump wants to burn it to the ground for rejecting him. Gabbard was always nutty and Sinema is just looking for relevance before she cashes in. I just did a quick dive into the Twitter Files. Not seeing a lot of there there. Let's see ... rich dude overpays for something by ten fold, walks in and completely destroys the business by making some of the most laughable changes in management history forcing major advertisers to flee. His insane actions begin to tank his other very profitable business of selling regulatory credits to car manufactures who can't make the requirements which cost his company billions of value. But your contention is that there is no connection to twitter and that the tanking tesla stock is simply people looking at EVs and coming to the conclusion that they suck? Okay.
  17. Trying to get out the door. He paid ten times what twitter was worth after opening his mouth and then trying to back out of it. The equity holders laughed their asses off as they cashed the cheques. Then, instead of doing a deep dive and looking at how to turn it around, he "geniused in" and pretty much destroyed the place causing advertisers to flee. He'll be looking at multiple lawsuits in the coming months. And it seems the whole purpose was to protect his inflated ego. Did you see him booed for 16 minutes straight on the stage with Chapelle? Elmo response was to flex and say, "I'm rich, bitch." Yet another who right time/right placed his way to wealth and now believes that he is a super genius and can run any company. Don't know a thing about Dorsey, Bezos seems smart enough to just bang hot chicks and play around with his money. Zuckerberg will fail once Meta is shown to be a disaster. I deal with founders all the time - people who bootstrapped an idea, worked in their garage and then introduced a product/service that hit at the right time. The hardest thing for a founder to do is get out of the way when it is clear someone else needs to run the company. Some just can't. The other very difficult thing is following up with a second act anywhere near as successful as the first. Haven't followed the twitter election thing. Don't really care. Trump lost spectacularly and is now reduced to shilling cartoon images of himself, the once-respected GOP is in freefall and in a few days I'll be in Mexico for three months. I am content.
  18. Hostility? No. Snark? Sure. Musk is a clown. Never in history has a guy purported to be a genius proved himself an utter moron in record time. It's fun watching him implode. Some good reading for you: The Myth of the Secret Genius From Elon Musk to Elizabeth Holmes and Donald Trump, many very rich people are effective at convincing us of a myth: they're secretly a genius, and you're just too dumb to understand. Are they right? Heading off to Canada in this driving snowstorm. If you never heard from me again, North, speak well.
  19. Don't know, but he did pony up $8 for a blue check mark, so clearly Elmo thinks he's legit. Anyone lining up for Trump cards?
  20. A buddy uses terriers to kill rats on organic farms out west. I have hunted with him a number of times. His best was 300 rats in an afternoon.
  21. Staying out of the sun will severely lessen the risk of melanoma. My wife has been in the product end of skincare her entire career and the number one product she recommends is sunscreen.
  22. You know, Al, making fun of Grouse and his whining snowflakeness ("you guys are all just stupid") is not actually trolling. If I didn't post occasionally, it would be you, Grouse and the deer semen guy. Now that I think about it, that would make for a great game of F/M/K.
  23. Late at night, in the quiet time, do you ever feel as if you're the lead character in a Judy Blume novel?
