RE: Obesity in America

Those percentages seem insane. Maybe the barometer for obesity is off or something but I don't see 60 to 70 percent of people being obese. It's definitely an issue (and I think more of one in the midwest where the winter can work against getting outdoors and being active) but I have serious doubts of it being that bad.I don't have a problem believing it. Just walk around a shopping center, mall, or anywhere people gather. I don't necessarily agree with obese, although the numbers are high, but overweight is definitely there. It could be the midwest though, that is partly to blame. But there are a lot of fat people around here. :)

RE: onan generator synthetic oil filter

Yeah, I've read some not so good things about Royal Purple. I wouldn't use it in my lawn mower.

RE: onan generator synthetic oil filter

As hot as air cooled engines run, especially those inside a sound deadening enclosure, I will never understand the hesitation or reluctance to recommend synthetic oils. They’re not even that much more expensive anymore if you shop wisely. :):)I used synthetic oil in my Onan, for just those reasons.

RE: DVD and Blu Ray being discontinued?

Thanks for that link. It would appear that it's an ethical problem for each individual. All you have to do is lie to them: say you won't and do it anyway.

RE: Cybertruck has a yoke

That is the ugliest thing I have seen! https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51121357791_eac25bb677_c.jpg It's the future, not the past.One certainly hopes the next future will be better looking. It is new, and different, but it will never be a classic, just different.

RE: Obesity in America

It's all a plot by the insurance companies so they can have an excuse to raise their rates because they have to insure fat people. :)

RE: DVD and Blu Ray being discontinued?

If the EULA says you can't record the streaming content, and you agree to it, which one applies? Interesting conundrum.

RE: DVD and Blu Ray being discontinued?

PlayOn may say it's legal, but what does Netflix say?

RE: Tesla driving across Canada in 74 hrs

Do they pay to plug in and charge? Yep. Well, some of the earlier buyers got free lifetime charging but most of us pay to play. :). What is your cost per km for energy in day to day use? Well, life time kilometres per kWh for our leaf after 4 and a bit years was 6.4 kilometres per kWh. We pay 9 cents per kWh. There was no other maintenance other than washer fluid in four years. We haven’t tracked the Tesla but I’m told it’s more efficient. We have had it a little over a year. Same thing. Only washer fluid for maintenance. Superchargers are about 3 times as expensive as charging at home. They are generally only used on road trips. The vast majority of charging is done at home or work. Hope that helps. That is interesting - here in AB it is not uncommon for non city people to run a set of wheels for 300,000km. The electric vehicle would cost $4200 approx for energy at home. A fuel efficient gas passenger car about $27,000 for gas and my F350 about $54,000. :BEven at 20,000 miles per year, that will take about 9 years to accrue that many miles. Using an EV that much, will the batteries last 9 years, and should that be figured into the overall cost?

RE: Obesity in America

The Feds once said Ketchup counted as a vegetable serving in school lunches. Even if true as a serving, which it is not, tomatoes are a fruit. So, that would be dessert. :)"Knowledge is knowing that tomatoes are a fruit. Wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad". :)

RE: Cybertruck has a yoke

By yumpin' yiminy, Ole and Lena are now wondering if that is "...has a yoke", or "...is a yoke". :)

RE: What do you use for an outdoor ground cover?

"I feel bad for the OP, lectures instead of helpful advice." The OP asked for opinions and preferences, and he got them. Some people don't agree with your opinion or mine, and spoke up. No harm, no foul. When you ask a relatively diverse group of people for their thoughts, you may not get only ones that you find agreeable. I disagree. This isn't what the OP asked for. This is why so many new members don't stick around. Everyone, please keep the rest of your responses on topic. I deleted a few of the snarkiest/unhelpful responses.I'm sorry, I thought the OP posted this: "Please chime in with your contribution, as I'm actively looking to make a change... thanks!"

RE: What do you use for an outdoor ground cover?

We don't use anything on grass, but have one of the open weave plastic 6'x9' rugs for gravel, mud, rocks, and the like.

RE: Need new tires

"But sometimes I wonder if the common knowledge "ST's having stiffer sidewalls" was untrue." As is usually true, common knowledge isn't so common, and in this case, also untrue. When I changed out the E-rated ST tires on my 5th wheel for G-rated LT tires, I was particularly impressed with the flexibility of the sidewalls on the ST tires. "Wet noodle" was the term that cam to mind.
