You took public transportation to LGA? Are you insane?

Only to have my flight canceled and then have to drive to HPN for the re-scheduled flight. I left my truck at the lot and arranged for my wife to pick it up later. She asked me to park it tail-in so she wouldn't have trouble getting it out of the space.

And I got a $50 PARKING TICKET for parking it tain-in. Now THAT is insane.

Really? Is there a law about parking front in? Or were there signs requiring it?

I have seen parking lots with restrictions that all cars must park front in.  I don't understand why it is required, it is much easier to back into a parking space than back out. Perhaps they want conformity. I worked for a company that required all company vehicles to back into a parking space.

If there was a sign, it certainly wasn't prominent enough for me to notice.
And even if there was, $50 is a bit steep for a violation so small. It only costs $30 to park there for 24 hours. For $80 I should have been able to leave my truck on the runway.

I hope you're contesting it. I want to know the reasoning they offer.

Missed the deadline. But I'm considering guerilla warfare. Can I borrow your car?

My car has never been driven by a gorilla.

Does it have a Trunk Monkey™?

We can fix that. Trunk Monkey might not be effective. We can do better.

Mine hasn't been driven by a gorrilla, either. Just an ass.

I was in a mall during a shooting, but it was a long time ago before it became hip. It was also a very stupid person, because it was during the Christmas rush and his getaway car coulnd't get away. The shooting was actually a struggle with a security guard, he was trying to rob a jewelry store, and the only thing shot was the floor.

Actually, I'm quite happy it happened when it did. Everyone just went into the nearest store and they stores locked up. Afterwards we all just went on. Now there would be swat teams and I'd be hearded with my hands up the in air. God forbid if I looked suspicious.

I'm a blue-eyed white guy. You just happen to know different.

Being blue eyed and white does not mean you are not suspicious looking.

True, but I can pass.

I just bought some LED arrays, the "chip on board" type. After going through a lot of how-to documents and videos on how to properly install them, I'm now wondering whether it is legal to use these if I am *not* growing pot.

You can still grow your opium if you mask it with a few pot plants.

Heh. The only thing I'm growing here is a philodendron, and I tend to cut it down when it starts to get leggy.

I bought the LED COBs to retrofit a 20 year old fluorescent desk lamp that has both sentimental value and a really good size and shape for the place where I use it. When I opened it up I found that the reflector was actually a giant slab of aluminum, which made it perfect as a heat sink (using thermal paste, of course). With two "50 watt" COBs attached, the heat sink temperature leveled out at around 74 C (165 F). My understanding is that you need to keep them under 80, so it's ok.

Big Clive did an evaluation of this style COB: [ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hpF5O0W8Bdg ]

But the funny thing is that all of the listings say "grow light" somewhere in them. potheads must be loving these things.
