Kilts

Kilts, yea or nay?  I'm of Scottish descent, I'm proud of it, and I know from a fact, by wearing a highland great kilt, that they're comfortable and functional.  What do you all think?Continue

"Put in that persepective, yeah, that's pretty true, lol. Historically though, the kilt, as we know it, is a relatively modern invention, from the 18th century. Even great kilts are a modern invention. The wool blankets worn before the…"

"why do i wear kilts?simple: they are comfortable. i'm surprised at how clothing styles have evolved (well not really), but my point is, is that when you think of which gender is expected to wear pants and which gender is expected to wear…"

"Question is, why? Here's why I ask: I am a bagpiper. Somewhere, WAY down my mongrel heritage, I have Scots blood. All that being said, when I first started playing the pipes, I thought wearing a kilt was cool. I wore one quite often, actually.…"

Quote
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

HVAC Question

I'm living with two buddies currently renting a house from a landlord. Being three post college 20 year olds, we don't have a lot of money, and one of the bills is for utilities and such. I happened to look up at the ceiling vents the other day and noticed that every single one of them is facing out. One is located directly in front of an outside door, the other a window, and the third in front of the microwave. To me, in order to save money, they should all be facing in. One of the vents is…See More
