The 4th is to shut up and accept it. If people aren't going to do anything I have no interest in listening to them complain.
Sad that so many are leaving the areas which have some of the greatest resources because these areas have become so woke.
I honestly wish they'd go back to sleep/back to how we should be living simple lives as God designed us to live, there's a reason things are as messed up as they are.
Shut up and accept it is included in my option of "do nothing" whether one wants to complain without action or simply quietly endure, they are both accomplishing the same thing: nothing.

It is unfortunate that over the past few years, a lot of people decided that because of their dislike/hate for one person, they should instead stand with those who want to remove their liberties simply because the share a common dislike of one person.

At work I frequently deal with the "do nothings" of the world and have to abide by archaic, outdated, inefficient, and/or rudimentary policies because of reasons like "that's how it always has been done", "it has to be done that way", etc when in reality I know that others in the industry ARE doing it the other way and it works better. It boils down to the person or people making those excuses should be saying "I don't feel like updating the systems to improve it" or "my department is unnecessary if those improvements are made". Too many people want to shove blame off on someone else or make sorry ass excuses and muddle in mediocrity.

Hopefully people start to wake up and realize they are nose deep in dung.

I agree.
I tell folks that if they aren't willing to do anything then they have no say in the matter, basically shut up.
Kinda like the adage, if you want to warm yourself by the fire, bring a stick. But rather in our society many want everyone else to do all the work and then they complain it's not done right, then leave! Is that too strong :innocent: .

Not sure, mine aren't labeled, I just grab the one that works :D.
Do you have any, if not just order a quality set and you'll have them all. My sets are cheap(not even sure where they came from), but they've gotten me by for many yrs working on automotive and saws. I do what I can to avoid working on them at all :yes:.
Did you get a new saw :popcorn2:.

New to me. A 2014 390XP that I am trying to replace OEM muffler with a modified one. I think the bolt is 6 MM, but not sure. I hope they are not stripped.

Unfortunately I think by the time the woke wake up they will have a boot on their back.
I've been trying to wake people up for yrs, much like this c19 crap and masks/social distancing, people won't listen. I was all down for it until I looked into it myself, I honestly thought they were underestimating things, but it's 100% the opposite.
Don't take the vaccine friends, and don't even be tested.

Awesome.
Not sure of the size, I think it's just a hair bigger than the bracket bolts. When you put it back together use some blue loctite, or a fastener that locks like the stihl bolts do.
Be sure to retune the carb, you may need to trim the limiters on that carb in order to get it fattened up enough to 4-stroke. That yr most likely has a limited coil unless someone removed it. Fatten it up until it's obvious it's tuned below the coil RPM limiter, then start leaning it out until you hit the limiter, you can usually tune it a 1/4-1/2 turn leaner, but you should tune it in the wood to be sure it's 4-stroking and not the coil limiter you're bumping. Some saws I have a very hard time telling the difference, listening to a video is the only way I can hear it sometimes, the ms290 is a hard one for me to hear the tune on.
One tip is before you adjust the carb at all, turn the high side in until it bottoms out counting the turns in, that way you have a reference point in case things don't go well.
Saying this for anyone who may need help tuning after a muffler mod, if you don't need the help, carry on :).

Agree.

It is unfortunate that a lot of people absolutely devour the bullshit their party feeds them. I am not one to normally state things in absolutes, but anyone who does this is part of the problem.

One group wants to destroy things as we know it. The other one doesn't seem to care what happens as long as you vote for people in their party. We will not succeed until people start taking personal responsibility for their actions and also holding those around them accountable for their actions.

Over the past two years I have become very involved in a service organization as well as helping out with some other nonprofits. Helping others has greatly improved my life and I recommend others try this as well.

On the two boards I am on, we hear a lot of "you should" do this or that but the people offering these suggestions never offer a monetary donation nor do they offer to volunteer man hours to do the things they think we should do. You want to make a difference, get involved!!!

Beautiful looking rig there Joe, but my old eyes prefer the newer scopes, especially when conditions are not ideal.
Mike, I was just messing with every one. That rifle is a first year of production Savage 1899 H in 22Hi Power, made in 1912. I have a historian letter stating it was sold to “The Malcolm Rifle Telescope Co.” The scope is currently at “Ironsights” being restored. I shot a nice 8 point in WV 3 years ago with it. The scope was so foggy you could hardly see the cross hairs. I used the flip up tang sight to shoot the deer. The scope is mounted about an inch to the left of the barrel so you can still use the irons. It’s more of a novelty. But, Savage advertised the 22 HP as a dangerous game round and has quite a few pics of people with Tigers taken with one. After a bunch got stepped on by elephants (just my guess) they stared advertising it as a small game varmint round. One of the selling features was it could pierce a piece of 1/2 inch boiler plate. I shot it at a piece of 3X5, 1/2 inch angle, with a Norma 70 grain pill, and it poked a hole right in it. The 22 HP is a 30-30 necked down to .228. Actually it’s a 25-35 necked down to .228. But a 25-35 is a necked down 30-30. I have a custom Ruger #3 one off in 25- 35 so I make all of my HP brass from free 30-30 scrounged at the range just before hunting season.

You know Steve, there is a reason people don’t give like they used to. Taking care of the needy used to be the job of the church. Then the government came along and said for a few tax dollars we can do it better. It used to take a couple volunteers one day a week to hand out all of the food and necessities for a community. Now it takes multi levels of government to give out a credit card, so no one sees the needy buying beer, lottery tickets, and smokes. Bet you never donated beer and smokes to your local food bank.

Local small engine guy in our hamlet has been sick. He hasn't been able to run his shop for a little while due to complications from his illness. Good man, he's a modern Mennonite. I've known him to help people in the community and he's helped me on a few projects for either nothing or a little bit of nothing. Earlier this week I got a note in the mailbox from one of the community ladies who was organizing a fund drive to help these folks. I got home from work, got on my tractor and blew 3 laneways just because they needed doing, on my way down to give a hundred dollars to the cause.
Lotta bullcrap on tv and the internet. I think we need to act with kindness and look to our neighbors...I think if you look around your community, you'll find things a lot more harmonious than you might believe if you only watched TV and what you read on the internet. Excepting this thread of course, it's all good!

It's hard to want to be charitable these days, so many will take advantage just because they can. I still do what I can but have become leery. Been screwed too many times.

i decided a long time ago that I cant help everyone that needs help. I try to help those I can, when I can, and just hope someone else will help the others that I cant help. Helping others doesnt have to be monetary. A free load of firewood to a old couple that cant cut their own. Taking garden veggies to a cancer victim that isnt able to grow their own. Helping someone get their car running that cant afford to buy another one. You do these things because you can and you know the person receiving the help appreciates what you have done more than they would have if you simply handed them a fist full of money.

Like the time some drunk indian bum hit me up for 5 bucks outside the market so he could get something to eat. I said "sure man, no problem" Gave him the cash and as I was loading my groceries I watch him cross the street and go into the liquor store.
Oh well, I tried. :nofunny:

Same.

I was just told that one of the people effected by the fire needs more firewood soon. I thought he wasn’t relying on me, because there was a log deck there also. There was fresh evidence of cutting logs out of it, but the ends did look rotten. I didn’t know the extent of it. Starting today the whole week’s forecast has snow, so not sure when I will do it.
