  1. Looks like one helluva deal to me, congrats. Nice score on a great looking truck. I have an older body style '97 Silverado 4x4 that has served me really, really well. It's starting to rust badly though, both externally and fun stuff like brake lines, fuel lines, trans cooler lines, tailgate mechanism, etc., so it's getting to me with maintenance costs. I'd love to upgrade to a newer model, but prices on used 4x4 trucks are high around here and it's not a primary vehicle so I can't justify much.
  2. I'm late to the party, but aside from the thermostat, I'd check the fan clutch or controller depending on cooling system design. Clutch/controller tells the fan when to be fully engaged and when it can freewheel some. The fan should do the heavy lifting in the scenario you described, i.e. clutch/controller should be fully engaged at low RPM, hot, car sitting with no airflow since car is not moving, etc and fan spinning fully...then when temps drop during cruise with good airflow from car moving the clutch/controller disengages the fan at least partially and fan freewheels some. http://www.ehow.com/how_5086903_test-fan-clutch.html
  3. Assuming you are referring to the other driver involved as "the kid" above, I could not disagree more. The kid handled himself very well IMHO. He has every right to decline an invitation that the rest of us would have stumbled over ourselves to accept regardless of how we felt about Adam and his behavior. And contrary to Adam, I don't think the kid had any interest in "5 minutes of fame". ...and while I'm replying... I still don't get the double standard of how black people can go around and call others the "N" word and people think it's perfectly acceptable and often times seemingly encouraged. I mean, I think I get it when its in a comedic or rap music context, but when you're being serious I don't get it. Imagine if the cars/drivers were reversed in this scenario and those words were said. That's an offense worthy of being fired at my place of employment. I guess I'm just too old and don't know all the details and subtleties of the rules.
  4. Thanks for your post and perspective Mexas. I have to admit that I was one who was quick to be "consumed" by the video...and initially hated "my team" for drafting him. I'm starting to come around to the reality of the situation now though. I guess we'll see how it plays out, but I can already hear the Sunday commentators every time he's on camera..."that was a nice 8 yd run by Mixon...but, as you recall, he was involved in...". I hope the kid is given a real chance and that he doesn't have to pay the price forever. We'll see. Let's play some football already.
  5. I replaced my central air system a few years back with Tempstar and have been very happy with it. I used that brand because that's what my "brother-in-law in the business" installer had discount access to at the time. Otherwise I like Bryant and Carrier and have always thought of them as being at the top of quality chain. In reality, the internal heart of the system is probably an Copeland compressor (an Emerson company) regardless of the A/C brand, so I'm not sure how much the brand really matters in terms of A/C. If I had it to do over again, I'd definitely do the heat pump instead of just the standard A/C. This gives you the best of both worlds, i.e. very efficient heat pump heat for when temps are not frigid...and then the gas furnace for when the temps get lower or are low over a more extended period when the heat pump is less effective. I really regret not paying the extra for a heat pump when I replaced my central A/C. I don't really have any input on the gas furnace as I've never had to replace one of those yet. They seem to vary less in quality and so much more efficient than they used to be, it's probably hard to go wrong with that regardless. Hope that helps some.
  6. Can we get him to replace Adam??? Ninja???
  7. I'd be in. As RayDogg and Ben have already suggested, mine has shrunk from repeated washings/dryings!!! Swear to gawd!!! It's more of a crop top now, and requires vaseline to put on, but I still sport it proudly. Wifey gets excited when she sees that "bottom gut" shot.
  8. Speaking of GB.com merch...I still have my go-bengals.com t-shirt from back in the day. Due to condition, it's now a "workin' on stuff" shirt, but I still wear it! Anyone else still have one?
  9. I'm in! Sounds like a great plan, although honestly, the advertising hasn't been bad.
  10. I'm just relieved that he didn't go to an AFCN rival.
  11. Wow time flies. Hard to believe that stadium is coming up on 17 years old.
  12. I remember the name due to the local connection, but I really don't remember his Bengals career at all. Did he play any snaps in a real game? Practice squad and preseason only? I forget, but I also have CRS so who knows. Anyway, I saw the story on the local news last night...really weird set of events...I hope the guy gets the help he needs.
  13. I am happy for Shayne and for him to retire a Bengal. I hope he has a great life outside of football. Also nice to see/hear from BengalSIS again.
  14. I chuckled everytime Collinsworth was ***AMAZED!!!*** by Bell's "patient" running style. "He's the only one I've ever seen do that!!!!". Well IMHO that's largely because the Stealers are the only team that gets away with the holds that allow those types of "patient" runs. Its laughable how defenders can't get to Bell even though they are on the runner's side of their blocks. Secret Formula: Wait for the bear hugs and overt holding to take full effect, then pick the biggest hole to run thru...not exactly rocket science. GO NFC!!!
