If it’s not coming from the drip pan, chances are it’s compressor oil. You probably will not want to run it until you can fix the leak and replace the oil that’s leaked out. running it without oil will kill it.

Your two choices would be to call a repair person, or to look up how (and if) you can seal the leak and change the oil yourself.

If it’s leaking onto the metal framework it can pool in there and come out wherever it finds a hole or low spot to come out. It’s really hard to say for sure without getting under there and seeing what’s going on.

We had bikes before cars, that wasn’t the problem. People wanted the luxury of cars. You could go faster in heated comfort along with your entire family and cargo for hundreds of miles with next to no effort in virtually any kind of weather, something bikes still can not do.

Even if we had modern tech with bikes 200 years ago the rise of cars was inevitable due to their convenience and low cost at the time. Combine that with the push of the car industry and that most people were unaware of the true cost of the damage cars were causing, and bikes never stood a chance. Even now, bikes simply can’t replace cars for everyone but at least they can make a dent in the problems that got us here.

The Pinto wasn’t all that bad… after the first couple years when they moved the fuel tank and made them a little less explody they were kind of fun little cars. Mine only caught fire on me twice.

Not all that surprised when a lot of the politicians getting voted in have their heads so far up their asses that it’s back above their shoulders again.

A few times, but for context I grew up in a sort of biker/trucker social circle and I tend to speak my mind sometimes more than maybe I should. I do try to be a good person though and don’t try to get in anyone’s face unless they deserve it.

I guess the last time was a few years back having a smoke outside a bar. Some guy was aggressively hitting on my unofficial daughter (ex girlfriends kid) which was fine in itself until he started getting grabby with her so I pinned him against a wall and threatened to put him out of my misery. He calmed down fairly quickly after that and left. I’m no badass or anything, I just get irrationally angry when people try pushing things too far.

My kids are grown now so my comment probably isn’t all that relevant anymore, but I don’t think there should be a set age to give your kid a smart phone. Different kids mature and learn at different ages, even ones from the same household.

For my kids, I got them their first phones in their early teens but those phones were somewhat restricted so that we could still communicate easily but we knew they couldn’t get into too much trouble with them. As time progressed the restrictions slowly lifted as we knew we could trust them more to not get into trouble with them.

I’ve always believed it’s not a parents duty to protect their child from the world as much as it is to prepare them for it. Of course kids are going to make stupid decisions if you let them go too far (we all have) so I think it’s more about slowly easing them into things and helping them make the right decisions the best we can.

I use freetube as well, but I have a feeling that it’s just a matter of time before google brings the axe down on it too, especially if it increases in popularity.

Some of the alternate UIs do, like the Mlmym interface for example. You can find it in the settings.

Because they want the “win.” They don’t give a shit about justice.

I agree, I used to work for a company that made mobile homes in a an assembly line fashion. Two of us could cut and assemble all of the interior and exterior walls in under two days for an 80 foot home. It’s all the other stuff that took time and a lot more people to piece together.

The “sovcit” thing has been here for a long time, I’ve known two here since the 90’s. (I think they’re both dead now.)

They were a bit more tame back then before they had the internet to feed their stupidity though.

I actually built one of the “sovcits” his first computer, a Pentium dx66 IIRC. Thankfully when he was on the net he was mostly distracted by porn. Unfortunately I was also the first call he’d make when he picked up a virus.

The man has a ton of really good covers (hundreds) if you’re into metal.

I'm trying to find a physical copy of Rainbow War (www.youtube.com)

When I was 7, our class was brought to a neighboring elementary school to watch a projection of a short movie. It was about different nations of different colors, one blue, one yellow, and one red. Something happened and they all went to war against each other trying to paint each other with their own nation’s color. This...

Considering its age, finding anything in higher res than 480 may be very difficult if not impossible. I found a few links bobbing on the high seas, but those are low res as well.

I’ve watched the first season (8 episodes) and I think it’s pretty good. I personally think the first episode was a little slow getting into things. If you don’t know anything about Fallout it may be a bit confusing at first because they don’t really explain much of the Fallout lore or how things work in that world, but it mostly all comes together by the end of the season.

Apparently they’ve already greenlit a second season so that’s awesome, I’m just sad we’ll have to wait until probably next year to see it.

That makes me a little more sad.

Probably the same people that mod those games to make the female character to look like overinflated balloons. I looked for interesting Horizon mods recently and a stupid amount of them were Aloy “enhancements” that defy realism in any way.

One usually uses a plunger for such blockages.

I used to always want one of those bikes with the shocks, and in grade 6 I finally got one. I hated it. Weighed more than I did and was just a complete POS.

Mid-Eighties Plymouth Voyager minivan. Put the pedal to the metal, and the damned thing would hardly accelerate, the motor just got louder. Probably would have been quicker if I rolled the window down and flapped my arms. And if you look at one spot too long, that part would break.
