Yeah, Iran had to do something to save face.Iran attacks two Iraqi bases housing US forces in revenge for Soleimani's death
Or maybe a new direction for Uwe and me? Diagnostic Tools for farm machines? Do for the farmers what RT did for VAG enthusiasts?That good old argument for a KISS!
Jack, I totally agree. Having the right tools, training and experience enhances the process of accomplishment. I also prefer to stop, think, determine a best course, use the better tools, and hopefully have a great completion!Nothing wrong with fun hard honest work.
To me there is a sense of accomplishment in some simple tasks, but at same time working smarter and not harder or having right tools, training, experience and ability to help others in process makes me feel even more empowered.
Again I agree. There is also something to be said for the comradery enjoyed in a common sweat filled work task. The banter, the decision making of what to do next, the arrival of consensus and then the action of getting the need met, these too lead to meaningful experiences - read that fun! We had a lot of that.Sometimes simple basic work is more meaningful than the super tech draft on computers or drafting table, but taking that work and implementing it from start to finish is the person I want to be or friends with.
I share this view also. We have convinced ourselves that technology solves all problems. We worship the gods of technology. When power fails, what do we do?I think we rely on technology in some cases too much and forgetting basics & in all industry, not just auto, well it has breed a bunch of morons.
Somehow I feel in the back of my mind & with the monolith structures that exist we still can't replicate or move with existing equipment we have now, will again be there after us when something catastrophic happens we yet still to completely understand.
History will repeat itself!
Everyone should be taught or know how to find or make clean water, raise crops or other food, dirt mechanics and live under ground in a proper sheltered structure.
People to busy buried in phone on social media or watching dumb videos that go viral and sometimes hurt people, even I'm guilty!
This is why I have moved more to questions than answers to seek answers.
Yeah, but first we had to cut our way out!Again, a Ross Mountain experience. In the ice storm last November (2018), when we lost power for 5 days, I observed our group struggling to know what to do and how to do it without power. We had propane so we had heat. We did not have electric to pump water. We did have some bottled water... there is a spring nearby and if we had gotten desperate, we could have gone and filled water bottles.
