AND FAT WOMEN!
Rookie, you're the Sweat Hog god! Slump busters forever!
Years ago, I had a client hound me for an hour to tell her whether I thought she should stain or paint the wood trim on an addition we were doing for her.
Both she and her husband were Engineers, and every decision they made was painfully thorough. Not always right, but chewed to death.
I told her the pros and cons of both ways, but she insisted I tell her what I thought was best for her house.
So, finally, I said I'd paint it if it were up to me.
She then told me I was wrong. Just like that. No reason or discussion. Flat wrong.
So I said to her, "So why in the he!! did you ask me?"
She stormed away, and we didn't speak much after that, but she didn't ask me for my opinion any more.
I've since learned to just say yes, and move on.
Some people love to ask for advice, and then ignore it. What they're generally looking for is validation of a decision they've already made.

I am often guilty of not taking published advice and I fully understand the engineer thing. Engineering can be a desease. Sometimes, I just need to find out for myself. SOMETIMES, a new idea or technique results.
I always say that it has not all been discovered yet, it needs a few bold people to challenge conformity to advance the art. Yes, most times we are wrong, but we keep pushing.
And that's engineering. My motto is, "no problems, just solutions".

Speaking of solutions, what if Hubble got it wrong?
What if the light shift we see isn't from the universe expanding, but, instead, it's the effect of light traveling through dark energy over distance.
We know that dark matter has mass, or, at least, exerts gravitational energy, so why is it so hard to think dark energy has gravitational energy as well.
Since Einstein said gravity is acceleration, what is being interpreted as acceleration of the universe outward may, in fact, be just what passing through dark energy over great distances does to light.
That would mean that the universe, which everyone now says it infinite, but started at a single point (?) is truly infinite, and always has been.
Kind of puts a different spin on things.
Just a fun thought.

The compressor discussion you're remembering in fact did happened on TU, not very long ago.
Actually, the discussion I was referring too, did not take place on TU
.....but on Airbrushtech's forum about a week or two ago.....the gal asking the question really seemed to be more fasinated by the fact the mini compressor she was inquiring about and eventually purchased against our advice, was shaped like an Elephant.
I do understand what your saying about getting varied opinions depending on who's online and posting during a peticular timeframe, and your correct....opinions vary greatly and some get changed over time.
I for one am a research fanatic....if I have a little bit of info on a subject I can't stop surfing the net or the local library till I've found more info.....I've found that in some cases a small amount of info on a subject can be dangerous when you start passing that along on forums....before you know it bad info is being passed around as gospel, and then you end up with the blind leading the blind....So, I try my best not to allow that to happen.
.....When it comes to airbrushing info, all mine is based on many years of experience of trials and failures....none of it comes second hand.

Mark, I was tempted to google and come up with an egg head responce, but just decided to accept the humour.
KF, I have been guilty of jumping in too soon with solutions in the past. If I post an unproven idea, I say so. The last thing I want to do is waste peoples time. But I think their is room for ideas here.
Research is good, some people seem reluctant to google the wealth of knowledge out there. But I agree, the knowledge of experience cannot be beaten.
Posted 28 August 2009 - 12:16 PM
I was being serious.
If you google it, you'll just come up with answers based on the single point big bang theory, which uses Hubble's interpretation of the red shifted light as expansion of the universe as it's basis.
Astrophysicists have come up with all kinds of creative, weird ideas to try to make what they can observe fit that interpretation, like inflation, membranes, etc.
They are straining their collective brains to figure out what happened before the big bang.
But that ignores the obvious contradiction of an infinite universe having a finite beginning.
That could be flat world thinking, and I'm asking, "What if the world is round?".
That question opens up a whole new world of possibilties.
Remember Ocum's Razor?

Compressors must be like ice cream. They make so many flavors so everybody can get what they like. Now I'm wondering if Rookie has any relatives in Texas? Buddy of mine does like those big girls.

I'm just sitting here reading this, taking it all in but not buying into it ! ! ! - because I have given enough bad advice for a lifetime.
By the way Rookie - coincidentally, I like fat men ! ! ! --- I just looked in the mirror:lolhuh:.pete

I use a fine point sharpie for the sig. I sign, use the hair dryer for a few seconds (not on my hair, just the bait) wait a minute, then use the dryer again and put on the D2T
. Never had a problem after heat setting it. I found it to be the simple way for me.

You were right, the video is very funny, even my wife thought it was funny!
I wonder if he signed his worm! Never figured signing one would help me catch the fat ones.

Sharpie fine point markers work fine with d2t
, but smear when you use etex.

Usually just monitor the going's on here but:
I figured someone would chime in with color preserver for rod thread. So far I have not gotten any bleed with any pen unless I keep brushing it over and over. Not saying it won't run but I haven't made it yet except once I applied just after writing with a blue ballpoint and immediately brushing CP over and over. I did the same thing with just one brush and no bleed. I'm sure some of you build rods, surely you got some you can try. Academy has it if anyone is interested. I would be interested in the results since some of you seem to get to sign your name on a lot of baits.
Posted 31 August 2009 - 07:51 AM
To not get bleed in my signatures I just shoot some createx clear over the bait and I have no problems, its easy and thin.... and it also works to lol.

You'll find that this subject, and its solution was covered on page 3 of this thread a couple of times.
