2/28/2011 9:15:55 PM Question: "What is the meaning of BC and AD (B.C. and A.D.)?" Answer: It is commonly thought that BC stands for "before Christ" and AD stands for "after death." This is only half correct. How could the year 1 B.C. have been "before Christ" and 1 A.D. been "after death"? BC does stand for "before Christ." AD actually stands for the Latin phrase "anno domini" which means "in the year of our Lord." The B.C. / A.D. dating system is not taught in the Bible. It actually was not fully implemented and accepted until several centuries after Jesus' death. The question I would like to pose is this, if Jesus never existed why do the Julian and Gregorian calendars base their numbering system on his birth?  The Julian calendar was created in 527 A.D. and the Gregorian Reform calendar in 1582 the last country to adopt the Gregorian calendar were the Greeks in 1923 and it is still used today. As Gandhi put it.   I like your Christ, I don't like your Christians.  So even Gandhi accepted there was a Christ. It is each individual person who creates either a positive or negative reflection of themselves and/or their religion.    I am a Christ follower.   I am not a religious man.

2/28/2011 6:03:26 PM I think Jesse Ventura should get back into politics.... or maybe we could change the law of the land so Arnold could run.....  At least Palin can shoot..... LoL  and where's Ross Perot when you need him????  I thought I heard Rudy Giuliani was tossing his hat in the ring..... My Predictions: Republican:  Michelle Bachmann and Ron Paul Vs. Democrats:  Barrack Obama and Joe Biden Vs.  Tea Party/Other:  Herman Cain and Sarah Palin

2/1/2011 9:26:28 AM I started skiing about 35 years ago.   I have kite skied for several years also.  After watching the boarders and kite boarders and finding some people my age and older that board I finally decided I am not to old an am taking the plunge.My main interest for getting into boarding is for kite boarding although through many recommendations on this forum I am going to take it to the hills and get a couple of lessons before I strap into my kite harness with a snowboard.....My board came the other day, I am waiting on bindings and boots.  Hopefully when I get back from Denver this Friday it will all be here and I can get my first boarding lesson this coming weekend.I can't wait to strap into my kite with my new board!!!!
1/31/2011 6:12:21 PM Looks good....West Systems is good stuff.....Time to take it out and give it a go.Let us know how it goes.....
1/30/2011 8:15:55 PM Smartwool Microweight Boxers.   Nothing keeps you dryer than Merino wool.Nothing will make your nether regions happier except the love of a good woman.
1/30/2011 4:41:17 PM Civic, After 24hrs how well does it look like the epoxy set up?Let us know how it holds up.
1/29/2011 8:15:34 PM Painters tape should do the trick as long as you covered the surface well.A scraper and some ptex for the bottom and a few stickers on the top.....
1/29/2011 8:12:24 PM Here is one of my favorite wooden handscrew clamps. http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=18917&filter=hand%20screw%20clampIf you watch their specials you can get them pretty cheap.I use these quite a bit when vacuum bagging does not fit the bill.From your picks you could have used about 4 of these.At least 2 to replace the wrenches.Any way.  With the G flex you should have a good repair.   
1/29/2011 8:03:36 PM Other than that if you got a good seal along the side and plenty of resin down into the board you should have a solid repair with the g-flex. I have used g-flex before and it works great for boat repair.   It is flexible and can take alot of abuse.It is also nice to have that long pot life of 75 minutes to work with.Post a pick when you get the clamps off.Let us know how it rides and how the repair holds up when you take it out.
1/29/2011 8:00:28 PM That's the most unique use of a pipe and cresent wrench that I have ever seen. I would never use steel wool.   I prefer kevlar or just some normal fiber glass mat chopped up real fine.  It bonds much better.Hopefully the hairdryer didn't make it set up prematurely.   Heat kicks off the chemical reaction within the epoxy/hardner to make it set up.   I hope you put wax paper between your board and the strips of wood.   This acts as a release agent so the wood does not stick to your board.  It will be a real pain to get the wood off if that epoxy sets and glues those strips to your board.
1/29/2011 7:50:25 PM Call me radical, but why can't we talk on elevators again? If electricity comes from electrons, does morality come from morons? Are girls growing breasts bigger and faster, or am I turning into a pervert? Why do we scrub Down and wash Up? Can blind people see their dreams? Why can't woman put their mascara on with their mouth closed? Why is "phonics" not spelled the way it sounds?
1/29/2011 7:28:18 PM When working with a vacuum bag, you are dealing with atmospheric pressure at around 14.7 Pounds per Square Inch at sea level depending on your compressor or pump.     I use vacuum bagging in wood working and any area I use epoxy and my work will fit in a bag.  It is great for those odd shaped items that need repair and seem impossible to clamp.It gives a much more distributed (uniform) clamping pressure and is much easier to deal with IMHO.Vacuum bagging has many uses including wetting out carbon fiber, kevlar or other types of matting.I just prefer vacuum bagging whenever I can because the clamping pressures are so much greater and more evenly distributed.   Either clamps or vacuum bagging will work.I used to use clamps all the time until I was introduced to vacuum bagging.   I still use clamps when I can't bag it.  But if it fits in the bag that's the way I go.
1/29/2011 7:11:01 PM Civic that is a major repair.   I think the G-flex and good clamping (preferably vacuum) and you should see good results. Those loctites and others are not flexible enough for this application.Watch your pot life.   If you can work in around 68 degrees when you do the work that would be good.   It would give you the most time to work the epoxy in.   Remember,  the hotter the air temp when working with epoxy the faster it will set up on you.  If you have a second syringe that a friend can be mixing and loading for you while you work with the first you will have more time to get this clamped for a better bond.Post some shots after completion and let us know how the repair holds up when you ride next.If this repair does not hold on its own you might try adding some glass bubbles or some fine shredded glass/carbon fiber or kevlar to the mix to add strength.You can get kevlar that will work for this repair at most hobby stores.   Just ask for them if they have kevlar shock cord for high power rockets.   You can then cut this into fine shavings to mix with the resin for an extra strong repair.   NOTE:  when working with epoxy, glass bubbles, carbon fiber or kevlar shavings make sure you wear a filter mask to protect your lungs!!!!!Also wear latex gloves as this stuff is not good for your skin.
