  1. Question for the NES Mechanics

    So I've got a 2008 Impreza that's due for a timing belt and a water pump. I'm thinking about doing it myself instead of brining it to a shop. I've never really gone past changing oil or putting a spare tire on, but I've got a reasonable amount of mechanical aptitude (mostly from working on boats...
  2. Help with a math/chemistry problem

    I'm trying to take a 17% permethrin solution and dilute it to between .2% and .5% to treat my hunting clothes with. Is there a formula I should be following?

    I'm interested in giving knifemaking a try. I've got a project in mind, but I'm having a hard time sourcing parts. I'd like to start with a couple of kit builds. One of the knives I'd like to make is a sailor's/mariner's folder with a marlinspike and a sheepsfoot blade (preferably serrated)...
  8. So i'm up in my stand right now empty handed...

    Because my gear line snapped when it was about half way up to me. I either ned to stop bringing so much crap with me, or use a stronger line. Looks like I'm going to climb down and still hunt the rest of the morning.
  9. In need of cable/internet hookup advice

    I've got my cable box in one room, and my modem in another. I'd like to set up a second tv in the same room as the modem. This is going to be a standard def tv with no cable box.

    Does anybody have any suggestions for a video camera? I'm looking for something that shoots high def, stores on either an internal hard drive or SD cards (or both), takes still images, isn't too big (pocket size prefered, but larger OK), and costs under $400.

  13. Looking for a Scotch gift recommendation

    Can anyone make a recommendation on a decent single malt scotch in the $30-$50 range? I don't know the first thing about Scotch (more of an Irish guy), and I'd like to get my Father a bottle for Christmas. I'm not really worried, because he doesn't know the first thing about Scotch either. For...

  19. Dim Sum in Boston

    Does anybody have any reccomendations for dim sum in Boston? I think I'm heading in to town with the wife and some friends/family. I told her the only way I'd go was if we'd get dim sum in the morning. Everybody agreed (which is great), but I don't know where to go (not so great). Some help...
