    Correct me if I'm wrong but indecent exposure from defecating in public looks a lot worse on your record than speeding.

    Oh, unless that guy was smell-deaf, there's no doubt he caught a whiff of what I was putting out. I'm not shitting you (if it was back then, I couldn't say that), it was pretty damn obvious. I knew this one guy who peed next to a 99¢ theatre I worked at for a summer job, and a woman and his daughter rounded the corner, couldn't even see anything other than his backside, and he's on a list. Rush hour gridlock and my ass hanging out pooping ... the risk of who could see and what charge I could cop ... I'll take the $400 hit and call it a day.

    I'm thinking he might've been sarcastic. If it would've been APD, they've seen worse from homeless dudes. This was GSP, dude was probably pissed he was stuck watching bumper to bumper traffic from a cubby at an on-ramp. I know I would've been.

    I don't think homeless people care about their record when getting arrested means a free meal and a place to sleep so they don't have to stand in line at the homeless shelter and hope they got there early enough to score a bed.

    These days in California, you don't need to be homeless to not care about your record.

    True. There are a lot of people who don't think before they act. Just like there are a lot of homeless people who do care about their record and make rhe effort to get out of their dire situation. I'm mostly talking about those who are perpetually homeless due to drug or psychological issues.

    These days, there's a lot of things to make someone feel like there's not much left to lose...

    But then there's also a growing crowd of people with the money and connections to pay their way out of anything.

    Sorry Bubba, don't go! I'll shutup! :rofl:

    The lunch thread has been all over the place. Probably best just to dodge entirely.

    EDIT: Crap. This is in the "what'd you do today" thread. I think we all need to shutup.

    Oh - and I ranger'd brake fluid on my truck today.

    I wasn't making a statement on homelessness. Just an observation that regardless why you might have criminal legal concerns, those concerns are greatly diminished these days.

    Got the UBJ's out and some new ones pressed back in. I bought what was supposed to be correct honda BJ kit, but it didn't work for my application for whatever reason. Pulled the steering rack, had a living hell getting the shaft off the knuckle. Disassembled and reassembled the coil overs with some new shocks and longer top hat bolts for the small lift. Was hoping to have it all buttoned up today but ran out of time.

    Lucky to have a buddy with such a killer shop! Organized chaos though for sure.

    That shops got my OCD banging. How do you walk without twisting an ankle? What do those nuts and bolts go to? Also digging the press. And why is the floor so clean?

    It's pretty bad, sucks trying to find stuff. He has been working on cleaning up and organizing the steel building. The stuff in the background of the vise is everything pushed to one side of the building, so not as bad as it looks. The picture of the clean floor and the truck is in a detached garage he just built. It's climate controlled so way better to wrench in there versus the steel building.

    He has a ton of cool equipment. lathe, pipe threading machine, mig and tig welders, plasma cutter, cnc machine. When we were in college he would always be welding in flip flops and swim trunks. He was dressed for the cold this morning, but dude was still rocking flip flops. He got pissed off with Balljoint kit I brought and just made some the correct size out of pipe and scrap, He's making the pipe even on the lathe in this picture. In flip flops.

    Yup. Did that about 25 years ago and won't do it again.

    Didn't mind the sparks nailing my skin, no biggie. What hurt like hell was the damn sunburn, worse than being out on the lake fishing with no sunscreen for 3-4 hours. And I was sitting cross-legged while doing it so the burn pattern looked goofy as hell.

    If it's just a tack here or there, I'm not worried, but when you're laying beads, different ballgame.

    All the same, wish I had that kinda space. If I did, I'd probably still have my MIG and plasma.

    Dude, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve said to myself, man I wish I wore sleeves when I was welding……
    I think it’s worse than a sunburn, I peel like I’ve got psoriasis.

    I dunno what else to call it other than sunburn. But it sucks. It went straight to leather-like in less than 2 days and peeled for weeks before it finally cleaned up.

    And speaking of cleanup, I realized today I've never really looked closely at the inside of my back slider, so I checked it out a little closer.

    When I got the truck, the thin plastic cover for the slider was off. I never put it back on b/c I assumed there was a reason why and I'd look into it. I've never seen evidence of leakage, but today the sun was hitting it just right and I was surprised to see (A) one of the brackets back there is really purplish and (B) it looks like some water probably came in at some point, maybe the drain was clogged (PHM posted on how to unclog the drains, it's not hard, but mine don't look clogged).

    That light tan soil is what one of the previous owners had on a road he drove often. There's a fine film of it everywhere inside the cabin.

    Anyway, I wish someone sold a foam-and-seal kit to replace all this. Just like the door tracks, the channel felts on this window are worn, so it rattles, just like the front windows do if you crack 'em in the 1"-4" range. One of these days I probably should pop the rear seat out and get a better look, check for leaks, clean all dirt up. I think I'll start with a toothbrush and shop vac, then hit it with some lemon-scented Microban.

    Oh, man. Don't come visit my garage when I'm in full mad-scientist mode. I haven't fallen yet, but I do stretch these ankles pretty regularly. And I take a fair bit of damage on my lower legs from sharps poking out irregularly.

    Wait. You guys pull your skidder to change the oil?

    Adidas slides offer the most protection of all welding flops.
    And I have got to stop welding with my legs crossed. Those burns are brutal.

    I don’t, I do the reach through the hood and spin the filter off from above. This sends a torrent of used oil splashing down onto the chin-skid distributing its volume like a lawn sprinkler. The flattened air filter box (shiny side up) makes a nice flow director. I just cram it under the filter on top of the skid, hanging off the back to make a ramp to the oil catch pan. 100% of the time it works 60% of the time at preventing a huge mess. Cue the dry sweep.

    [when I change my own oil] I just drain it first and then when the draining oil diminishes to drips, I throw a rag (some rags?) under the filter and spin that ho off there. Put the new one on, pull the rags, fill the oil, and resume partying. Just enough oil on the skidder to prevent rust...also keeps a little bit of my driveway from rusting.

    It sucks having to pop off the skid every time, but it's the only way I can fully avoid a mess.

    I'm running full syn and changing every 8-10k so no crazy burden for me to pop off 5 bolts.
