    That is always the case isn't it? Flying is a very "libertarian" pursuit...it is all on you at the end of the day. I can see that cap as being the issue as well...you could have sucked fuel out, is the intake air anywhere near there?...you could have been sucking raw fuel into the intake and getting an over-rich condition...could have been vacuum and then pressure causing the surging as the airflow swirled around the cap and tank...or you could have just run low...do you have a cockpit tank gauge? I learned my lesson once...stabbed the tank drains on the 172 I was flying after fueling and got solid water...almost two gallons in each wing tank. I read somewhere that of mechanically caused GA incidents and accidents, fuel issues and fuel mismanagement are the leading cause.

    Statistics has gotten a bad rap because of ignorant people who don't understand what they are, as well as those who misuse them in deceitful ways. That's the deceitful misuse of the label "statistics" applied to something that is decidedly NOT statistical. Have you ever studied statistics? I would guess maybe not. Regardless, properly applied statistical methods show the incredible power in their ability to predict. I've seen it firsthand in my professional life more times than I could count. The operative term here is "properly applied". What you are complaining about is the aforementioned masquerade of bullshit as valid statistics. Your complaint is eminently valid. The only problem, so far as I can see, is that you are painting with too broad a brush. I will add that it can be difficult to know when something being presented as "stats" is valid vis-ŕ-vis nonsense, whether intentionally done or through ignorance. I will add that there is another dimension to "statistical" thinking as a way of looking at the broader patterns that one may observe in the world. The understanding of basic distributions, as well as what is meant by the "mean", sigmas, standard deviation, z-scoring, and that sort of thing is extremely useful in understanding how large populations work. Understanding the mean and how it defines things is very helpful in understanding what one is looking at in the broader senses. You say you saw good stuff in the peace movement. I'm sure your experiences are valid, but I do not think your conclusions are quite right. If the peace movement was so wonderful, why then are we more warlike than ever? Hell, at least with WWII we can claim to have been attacked. From Korea onward, we have done little other than invade foreign lands and murder people by the millions. If the peace movement had been so great as you claim, I would have thought the American people would have taken the war machine by the balls and put it out of business for all considerations save those where the land was under direct attack. So perhaps I am misunderstanding something in your position that, were I to see the light, I would alter my view. If you can help me there, please give it a whirl.

    White, Wealthy Communities Want Their Own Schools https://www.usnews.com/news/education-news/articles/2017-06-21/white-wealthy-communities-line-up-to-create-their-own-school-districts?int=news-rec Some states allow communities to create their own school districts, keeping property tax dollars in the neighborhood but siphoning funds away from poorer, underserved schools. By Lauren Camera, Education Reporter | June 21, 2017, at 12:01 a.m. In recent years, Tennessee has been the pace setter when it comes to adopting new education policies, including things like tougher standards and corresponding tests, and new ways to evaluate and pay teachers. It has even been at the forefront of the free college movement.

    As for the jargon, I use it precisely because it describes the truth with accuracy and precision. Looking at the world and describing it in statistical terms, where appropriate, is the way one sees the truth of things and separates it from the noise. It is so very easy to be confused by noise, which is why I have dedicated some nontrivial portion of my life to discovering my methods of noiseless analysis. Confusion by noise can be demonstrated in countless billions of exchanges between human beings daily precisely because it is so common and the method of using statistical eyes can be so powerful when used properly. The statistical view doesn't apply to all situations, but those where large populations of people are in question, it oftentimes does and that is why I use it. My purpose in engaging in these conversations is not to show how smart I am - I am not terribly smart in fact - but because I like getting to the truth of matters I think important to the quality of our lives. I like giving examples of how to see through the bullshit that flies all around us - bullshit that obscures truth and keeps the vast and overwhelming majority of the people of this world impotently chasing their tails. I choose my methods because they work and I want to share them with everyone. Just as I have been able to see what others here have done in terms of their apparent analytic methods and add them to my own, everything I do here I offer for the world to make its own, for whatever they may be worth. Don't take anything I write here personally, because I don't offer it in the spirit of being mean. You think the peace movement was a wonderful thing. The idea of it is - on that you and I agree as I assume we do on the value of peaceable relations between all men. We depart where the notion ends and the subsurface realities underpinning the real-world events begin. This isn't about winning - at least not for me. It's about better understanding the world around us.

    It's really quite simple: once you grant the premise that government can decide, and administer at gunpoint, medication that it deems "non quackery", then nothing is off the table. You become, as a parent, nothing more than what all of us are in every other aspect of our life: squatters and serfs, because you, in reality, own or have full responsibility for nothing. With freedom, comes risks, and sometimes freedom means being free to make dumb choices. If you're not willing to shine that on, as tough as it may be, then you're not really ready for freedom.

    That story is what we get when people who know less than nothing about military matters decide to voice an opinion about what happened. More probable course of events. US decides to change uniform pattern in 2004. That results in a number of uniforms in the old pattern in inventory. Somebody decides to build, uniform and equip an Afghan Army at US taxpayer expense. Hey, why not give them our left over uniforms?" becomes a thought because it will be cheaper than buying all new gear two years from now, because an immediate solution is available. Note: for Afghan deployments the US then changed back to a pattern with more brown and green in it similar to the old pattern given to the Afghans.

    Ah, you're saying system wide, as opposed to this particular case. I'll cede your point, but then say that it is counterproductive to frame it in "racist" and "sexist" terms. Doing so reduces this incredibly dangerous situation we have with out of control cops to nothing more than: "well, all we have to do is fire all the white male cops and everything will be hunky dory", or mandating ridiculous "sensitivity" classes.

Trump? Really? So you support eminent domain because it's wonderful? Or maybe you support restoring the PATRIOT Act to it's full glory? Or maybe you love waterboarding just as much as he does? Or maybe you too think that Snowden should be assassinated because NSA spying is a GREAT thing? Or maybe you call people names and mock disabled people like a third
