  1. What sort of beast left this on my lawn (scat photo), and what does politics have to do with it?

    It's next to the long side of a business envelope for scale, so pretty big... tubular, with mostly blunt (non-tapered) ends. Before anyone asks, I couldn't detect any tracks. :rolleyes: I didn't tear it apart to see what's inside, but I have an idea what animal it might be from. I've never seen...
  2. UPDATED: Marines being Marines, New Question, Post #26... Condition Green... Okinawa

    Condition Green was a crazy Japanese band... long hair and beards, throwing matchetes across the stage, etc., but they probably aren't still playing because this was decades ago. Did anybody here see them?
  3. UPDATE, Pg. 2: NEW QUESTION RELATED to Septic tank pumped, guy left the underground cover off... could that be a problem?

    I have a concrete riser that extends up from the tank to just above ground level. After the technician slid the top cover out of the way, he had to get a long rod with a hook at the end to lift a square lid off the tank itself. I don't know if that's an unusual set-up, but he didn't look happy...
  4. Veterans & Oliver Stone movie fans... or if you just want to see an example of great interviewing skills

    I'm watching possibly the best podcast I've ever seen. Oliver Stone is talking about when he served in Vietnam and how that informed his making of the movie, Platoon. He's a very interesting guy, and so far Joe Rogan is at his best interviewing him—every question is on point. I'm only part way...
  5. Born in 1960? Do you care that your Social Security benefit will be 10% less than it should be?

    I knew that Social Security benefits are calculated using your 35 highest-earning years, but until I read the Forbes article below I didn't know that there's more to it than that. This information came from a former Principal Deputy Commissioner of the Social Security Administration, so he...

  8. Lot Line Dispute, Help / Advice Needed (Surveyor, Lawyer?)

    A commercial building is being built next to my home, and I believe they are encroaching on my land. I looked at the developer's drawings at the town planning office today, and where they have the property line is at least 50 feet from where I believe it is. There is a distinctive land feature...
  9. Looking for S&W 642 "No-Lock" .38 Special +P revolver?

    When I was looking for my Smith & Wesson J-Frame, I had a lot of trouble finding one with no internal lock. Yesterday, I saw some new ones available for sale in the Manchester, NH area and just wanted to pass it on. They are selling for substantially less than I paid 10 years ago... $425 at one...
  10. free pork for a little effort

    I have a friend who has a pig that needs to be removed from her home. I'm wondering if anybody here would be willing/able to help me pick it up and butcher it. We could split the meat 50/50 (the pig weighs about 200 lbs. and has been eating domesticated pig food of oats with molasses, and it...
  11. American Ninja Warrior TV show & our athleticism

    The competitors on American Ninja Warrior are VERY athletic, and it's an inspiring show to watch because they are capable of some truly amazing things, but I have seen zero Ninjutsu or any other martial art in the competition, and I think the warrior part of the name (since there is no fighting)...
  12. Real Estate: Best Practice for Seller

    I'm seeking advice relative to a condo association in MA. A neighbor next door to the condo complex has been wronged, and they have threatened to sue the condo association. Lawyers on both sides are involved, and it is thought that the neighbor may win if this went to court. In order to avoid...
  13. In My Next Life

    In my next life I want to live my life backwards. I'll start out dead and get that out of the way. Then I'll wake up in an old people's home feeling better every day, soon to be kicked out for being too healthy. I'll go collect my pension and then start work, getting a gold watch and a party on...
  14. Today, December 15, is Bill of Rights Day!

    The current state of our rights: "It’s a disturbing snapshot, to be sure, but not one the Framers of the Constitution would have found altogether surprising." Even though I'm not Jewish, I joined JPFO at a level ($40) that they gave me a Bill of Rights Day pin, and I like to wear it as a...

  17. Lowell police seeking help with rape investigation

    Some people here say it's not smart to try to stop a crime in progress in MA (self-helped being discouraged). What if you were the guy in this story who interrupted a rape? If a woman is screaming for help while she's actually being raped, it's easier to tell who the bad actor is (unlike in...

  19. Lowell man arrested after street brawl

    "Street brawl" is in the title of the article, but it doesn't really sound like they fought back; however, it's clear that a man and his wife were pounded on by a huge guy. This happened about a block and a half from Lowell Police Department headquarters. Full article here...
