Kind off hard to hold an armed insurrection without, ummm, arms.

My PD support group is mostly liberals.  Including a reporter from DC.  Unsurprisingly the topic has come up in our weekly zoom meetings.  They were talking about how they weren’t very good insurrectionists because as they “stormed” the capitol they were staying between the rope stanchions and were mostly pretty orderly.  Ummm, guys, do you think maybe that means they weren’t “insurrectionists” in the first place?

Seemed like a slow liftoff, but she is flying!

They are going to reignite all three engines for the flip and burn, but shut down one just before touchdown.
Brief hold, but counting down again.

They are still calling it an "armed insurrection".

I've got one of those HF augers.  Bought it for a fence project that has since been postponed.  However, I did use it to drill a couple of holes for a strawberry wall.  It worked pretty well, and I don't believe the gas I used to make the mix had stabilizer in it.  I am still alive and did not disappear in a ball of flame or suffer explosive disassembly.

It's pretty powerful. For the coyote willow poles I'm planting, I'm using the 2" accessory auger, and even that little auger, drilling in pit run, has about spun me around a few times. I am beat today. I also used the 6" auger to plant some other trees in non-rocky ground, and the bigger auger went down easy as pie. Sadly, 100 of 140 holes I'll be drilling are in the pit run. I'm going to be a pile of jelly by the end of the week.

The fact that Dr Suess was a raging lefty says more about this than any attack on a conservative ever could. I'm waiting for them to start banning books by John F Kennedy. After all, "Profiles in Courage" is pretty patriarchal, no?

If I remember right Suess was a big lefty.

Yes; so is his widow.  The central theme of Horton Hears a Who is "A person's a person, no matter how small."  It's a great line; or at least it was until pro-lifers embraced it.  The Geisels were pissed; I think they even sued some folks over it.

I haven't touched anything with a two stroke motor since I was a kid. Because I currently have a project where I'm planting over 100 trees in rocky ground, I decided to save my back, support the CCP, and buy a Harbor Freight power auger.

Upon reading the instructions, they were adamant about besides the 50:1 gas/oil mix that I also add fuel stabilizer OR THE WORLD WILL EXPLODE IN A BALL OF FLAME!!! Anyway, the seemed very serious about using the fuel stabilizer or voiding the warranty. Is that an ethanol thing or something? If I buy non-ethanol gas does that mean I don't need the stabil?

Though I know I overpaid because I was in a hurry, right now the fuel tank has the STP premix that HF sells for their two stroke stuff. 91 octane + oil + stabilizer. The manual didn't say anything about 91 vs 87 octane.
