Roll Call: October 2017

Recommended Posts

Stealing another roll call from Panchi.  :baalzamon:

 

 

The Asha´man in WoT started to build a new black tower. Have you ever built anything? 5 points for signing in and 5 points for telling us about your constructions.

 

 

 

 

I´ve built a lot with lego.  :laugh: I´m not that handy but I have helped others to build garages or small houses. My contributions were mostly holding things or painting.

I am here.

 

Most of my "building" has involved material and designs, but to actually use hammer, nails, screws and such, I've helped build furniture with instructions from boxes. My last was a bookcase. Before that there was a tv stand and a desk. It's sadly all in storage at the moment. Looking forward to when it will be used again.

I build databases for obscure topics that no one cares about enough to pay someone to make. Does that count?

In the future I'm probably building chemical plants...

 

Does it count if you haven't done it yet?

I've built lots of retaining walls out of both block and timber, several redwood decks, miles and miles of fences (wooden and PVC, but very little chain link), and I've done some framing, but I haven't built an entire house from the ground up, just a little bit of rough framing and some back out (punch lists of last little things to be done).

 

Also, here. :smile:

My friend and I tried to ride a log across a lake. We went about five feet too before we both spilled off. Colorado mountain lakes are really cold, even in July...

Does assemble-it-yourself furniture count?

 

I think it should count.

I don't even know where to begin. My mother is a renovator, and would buy junk houses or trailers, fix em up and sell em for $$$. So the older I got the more projects she made me do.

 

I've built porches, patios, stairs, railings, roofs. I've installed soffit, facia, interior trim(really hard), ceilings. I've re-sided and re-skirted, primed, painted, poured concrete, framed.

 

All of that just for my mom. That's not counting what I've had to do for work. This deal only works with my mom because I work outside during the winter, and she keeps me supplied with all the winter clothing I need, which is a lifesaver.

 

I don't do many projects for myself, although I did make my own toolbox for my truck.

I am studying in an engineering college (though not studying engineering, except the required courses) and guess what the fun activities include...

 

I helped with building a soccer playing robot (it sounds way cooler than it actually was), some decoration stuff, a movie (in progress)

In b4 I get marked inactive again... >.> 

I've built a lot of things, mostly with my family. Tree houses, benches, stuff like that. The construction I'm most proud of is my Eagle scout project, which was a set of display boards for my high school's swim team.

    • My issue with increasing congress to that size is  A) Nothing gets done in there as is and  B) I dont want to pay 46 million more dollars a year to those vipers, not including whatever insurances, lifetime pensions, healthcare and security details they get. I already thinks its ridiculous they get paid during the shutdown, completely, while government employees are forced to work without pay.
    • how can i remove it? or could you do it for me?
    • Sure, I'll post this  again:       The data for the graphs is currently 2 election cycles old (it was run off 04 and 08) but the points stand...though it would be interesting to redo the graphics with 16 and 12 results.   Secondarily, if the porposals listed (somewhere) about "fixing congress" by increasing the size of the body (to somewhere around 800, I forget) would also help by creating more (and distributing more evenly) electoral votes around the country, or more modest proposals to award electors proportionately would also help.   The danger here is the logic of either; system is broken, why fix it or system has always worked (even though it's been broken the whole time), so don't fix it.      The best part of the video is the path to the presidency with 22%  (or said differently, a president could win if 78% of the people voted against them) of the vote, which is, um, not a fair/just/equitable/local/whatever word you want to use system at all.

    • I’ve never really liked the argument that one’s vote counts less using a percentage based on total population to EC votes when comparing states because that’s not how the EC is supposed to work.   Its not a perfect system but I don’t think it’s awful. I’d like to move away from the winner-take-all system the majority of states use, but I dislike the idea of using a straight up NPV tally.
    • As for impeachment; we don't have any hard (or direct) evidence of him committing crimes while in office, and we don't have any hard (or direct) of him committing crimes to get into office, but there is a lot of circumstalial and unproven evidence of both in the public domain.
