Speaking of eggs, a few weeks ago I started hearing reports of people stealing chickens from backyard flocks. I ended up adding weatherproof locks to my coop to at least make an attempt at protecting my girls and I'm thinking about adding another camera to the coop.

Livestream the camera for Chicken Watch. Make a web controllable arm dangle a toy or something.

Maybe hook up a way we can watch it. If we see a burglar, we could set off an air horn in your house via webinar or something.

That is certainly not a good idea. It's a great idea.

Well, that's what I was meaning. Set it up so folks can watch chickens and dangle toys at them or something. Maybe a feed button for dropping feed corn pellets.

I have never deep fried in my own home. I had a room mate with a countertop fryer once. It terrified me.

gently caress that Canadian kitchen video, too. That is literally one of the most jarring things I've ever seen, partially because you aren't thinking, "I'm about to see a beautiful woman's face peel off while she screams."

You should not check out the talks people give about Hydroflouric acid, FYI if it ever comes up.

It's basically a time bomb if it gets on you without you noticing (entirely possible and has happened) then it attacks your bones after passing through your flesh. The treatment is basically flay the affected area, and inject calcuim directly into exposed bones a few times, then put flesh back and hope the nerve damage doesn't kill them anyway

IDK. Sounds like a pretty clear-cut safe of self defense to me. People broke into his shop and home with weapons, then made overtures of violence towards him and he responded appropriately.

Don't break into a place with hammers if you aren't prepared to do violence, and if you are then be prepared to lose. It's not on the guy to hope they just want his stuff, especially if they continue approaching after he's made it clear he's armed.

That's not his home. He left the apartment he stayed in (explicitly to be on hand to go shoot at people if they broke into his store)

He could have stayed at his normal home. Staying in that apartment, he could have stayed in that apartment instead of leaving it.

I don't know what a John Wick is, but if we're talking bulletproof suits, the only one I want is the trench coat from some documentary I saw years ago. I forget what it was about, but it involved motorcycles, tobacco men, and for some reason, bulletproof trench coats.

Its a series of movies with Keanu Reeves being very shooty. Also a lot of memes came from it. It's got really good gunplay, like the opposite of gun kata bullshit from equilibrium. If you like action movies you should give the first movie a peek. If you don't like it then stop cause you won't like anything after that.

I could be mistaken, but it (or something similar I'm failing to differentiate) appears to be on Mississippi's flag.

And there is currently an effort to change the flag to one that doesn't have it on there. The governor is saying that it should be "up to the people" to vote, so it's unlikely to go anywhere.

Do you have a multimeter? If so, there's a way to test for a parasitic drain and/or short. I might be wrong, but I think it's set it to the lowest ohm setting and bridge the positive and negative side of the battery. It should show zero, if it shows more than zero that means you have a drain. Then you pull fuses until it changes, that fuse corresponds with the electrical system that's draining it.

Double check with AI first to make sure that's how it works.

Make sure you unplug the battery first. Also there are some cars, even late 90s that will always have some drain even with the ignition off.

You are very, very wrong. Testing voltage across an ohmmeter is a highly exciting way to discover how far you can reflexively throw a flaming electronic device, and also how much it costs to replace it.

He said multimeter. Not ohmmeter.

Also, you disconnect the battery to test resistance.
