Re: Swiss town selling homes for one dollar

Dang! I thought I had finally found a way to afford retirement. Then I saw this: There's a catch if a $1 mountain retreat in the vicinity of George and Amal sounds like your kind of deal — the properties are little more than ruins, according to The Local, and buyers would be expected to renovate the...

Re: Glow in the dark paracord.

I got a glow in the dark stick (for lack of a better term) on my key ring for exactly that reason. I also have a reflective / glow in the dark tape on the back of my cell phone also. I have loosing the things I need. Not advocating for this product. Just a funny coincidence that it popped up in my ...

Re: Free Olight review thread-I3E

Mine arrived today. It's a pretty nice key chain light and certainly well worth the $5 shipping cost. The threads are nicely machined and the desert tan anodizing is flawless. The 90 lumen output seems like a good bit of light for such a small package. And it is small: about two and a quarter inches...

Re: Glow in the dark paracord.

This would be good for me because I hate having extra stuff on my keys. In fact I cannot wait to sell my car because having two big key fobs is driving me bonkers. I believe we're just a few years away from dispensing with car keys altogether; it'll all be done through our phones. That way, if we l...

Re: Updating my Zombie Squad AR.

I like the clean new look. Weapon lights are certainly useful, but they can really throw off the balance of an otherwise finely balanced rifle. I bet it feels great now compared to the old configuration. How are the egos now that you've lost the angled foregrip and moved to an M-lok handguard? Also ...

Did I miss it in the linked video: do EU countries still have import restrictions on US poultry? Trying to ascertain if the original basis for the "chicken tax" still exists.
