Fast food restaurants. I had to sprint around downtown stl for an hour just to find a place that could (required by law) muster a response for my request for a nutrition sheet. Good grief. I go into fast food places when I have absolutely nothing to do, feel peckish and too lazy to go over to a sup...

Wouldn't the fact that even non-practicing jews were persecuted qualify them as an ethnic group in this instance?

Very nice piece, nice enough for some of us to venture into your "patator" forum without any French experience (me included). One thing I'm wondering about in the vid, at 1:25 something flies out of the breach. Is that just a miscut slug? Again, well done

Product lineups in large chains differ in different areas. I doubt you'll find a sprinkler unless they're in season.

The best way to learn all about fittings is just to dive into the plumbing isle at your local hardware. Yeah, those bushings will work, but I would strongly recommend just going out to Lowes or HD and getting your hands on the stuff.

That reminds me of my feeling with pvc, constantly crapping my (proverbial) pants at the thought of an explosion. I moved to copper and compression fittings, and i feel so relieved. If you're terrified like i was, just switch to metal, its cheap in the US.

Electronics people here?

Looking back at my previous ventures, Ive realizes that Ive never implemented any electronics, ever. So I'm calling out the electronics savvy of SF, where did you learn? Whenever i check it out on the 'net, it looks like French. My parents' apartheid-era texts are of little use either. I just need s...

yea i understand the motor thing, but its not going to give that "SLAP" that hammer valves rely on for their efficency and power. You can still use a motor. Use a geared rail and a gear with a couple ground down teeth to draw back a spring loaded hammer and let it rip at peak tension. The trick is ...
