MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. Fire the incompetent and hire only on ability and experience, no matter what other baloney HR criteria may be in play.
  2. Sake, the Japanese rice wine, can be very comforting served warm in the winter.
  3. I was in a parking lot in front of a small mall earlier today, and a FedEx driver was so aggressively on-and-off the throttle, it seemed like he was intentionally trying to destroy the transmission. I don't know if it was a technical fault with the vehicle, gross incompetence, or something else.
  4. "Scolded" is something I'm loath to tolerate from those for whom I have little respect.
  5. Bottom line: any AI, or any tech really, is only as good as its makers / programmers / caretakers. GIGO: garbage in, garbage out.
  6. Market prices keep climbing, and it's no joke.
  7. Yup, the Connie is one of the most beautiful machines ever built by man. I had a friend who flew some of the last of the commercial Constellations as they were being replaced by jets, told a story about how, at the end when the big radials were getting tired and overhaul wasn't considered economically feasible, they'd just cover the oil pressure gauges and cross their fingers. I was familiar with the EC-121 AWACS aircraft, but never knew of the specific "BATCAT" variant until just now.
  8. Community colleges probably prepare many students better for the reality of working for a living these days than most of the snooty ivy-league schools.
  9. Ben getting this occasionally too lately... An error occurred (500 Error) We're sorry, but a temporary technical error has occurred which means we cannot display this site right now. No such file or directory You can try again by clicking the button below, or try again later. Try again
  10. Nope. You could take one of the well-proportioned Revell kits and swap in the best of the available interior and undercarriage guts, and mashup a correct engine from all the flathead bits out there, but that's your only option. The lack of availability of a correct stock '32 Ford anything has been a long time gripe in the model car community. One of the most important, most iconic cars of the '30s, or among hot-rods, and no good stock kit. Oh well. Everyone who gives a rat's rump will be pushin' up pansies in not too long anyway, right?
  11. Future was a floor finish, a breath freshener, or a dessert topping depending on the packaging it was sold in.
  12. "Dumpster fire" is a phrase appropriate to describe several recent events.
  13. It's a little late now, but those cars really stood up on tippy-toe in reality, and the wheels are 18" rather than the kit's 15-inchers. So, ummmm...so much for "stock". The other major problem with ALL the AMT '32 body shells is the height at the cowl. Here's how you fix it.
