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.

    • 1.) I'm advocating for uniform ballot templates which are easy to read, informative, and tracable.   2.) No, see above.    For example; whatever your method - filling in dots, or connecting lines, or whatever - of ballots can lead to cofusion.    The easiest interface would be a digital touch screen which "builds" the ballot response for you, then prints out a unqiuely signed copied which is then scanned in by the vote-tabular machines.   In the case of absentee ballots, a blank form (with unqiueness) would be mailed and scanned on return.   Simple, uniform template. Everyone votes the same.

    • Florida ballots today are no different then ballots in other states. By the way in Florida every county gets to design their own ballots, basicly because every county has different races and different propositions. Again, many states have the same system of allowing counties to design their own ballots.   The different styles of ballots is a function of the Constitutional division of powers which allows states to run their own elections with a few limits to insure constitutional minimums. Its a function of Federalism. Also it's not unique to the US. other Federal systems such as Germanys also have the same feature.         "so is the system that allows (doesn't do anything to prevent) passive non-voting.   Ehat are you suggesting mandatory voting on all races?     
    • I mean, I'm pretty sure I said I thought Socio seemed off from the very start. At first, I'll admit my read made pretty much no sense, but it ironically led to Socio actually looking suspect. That was an interesting conversation D1.
