Also in New York City they have basically outlawed brick oven pizza.

Stocking up. I receive no compensation of any kind, just have this in my bookmarks.

While i have switched to LED for the most part anyway, other than my edge-use cases, i still disagree with being forced. 

Its not hard at all, so everyone should make a bulb on their own and ship it to DC.  "see.. f-u"

Bingo. This is the government messing with things they have no business messing with.

It's also a blatant violation of the first amendment, because it forces me to adhere to the government religion (global warming) instead of my own religion of choice (Christianity).

No details, just in passing but something about them going after window AC units now they have caused prices of regular AC to skyrocket.  Unsure if they are to change regulations to make them prohibitively expensive, or require professorial installer, or just ban then..

 

Like when my AC went out couple of years ago. All it needed was a compressor, but no, 'that is Freon, we cant touch that, it has to be replaced'.  And realistically had to get entire system replaced since heat/AC was one integrated unit. So what should have cost couple hundred bucks at most to have them do it ( i wasn't able to find one so i called people in.. now i know why, its illegal to sell them ) cost me 5k..

Trimming trees is instant gratification! And you get to use a chainsaw! So yes, it's satisfying. Not so satisfying is having to clean up and haul away the debris. I wish I owned a wood chipper, because aside from its primary use, it's also useful for breaking down wood.

Great for butt-head neighbors too.

Let's be clear: the primary use of a wood chipper is to dismantle Bill Gates (feet first into the hopper of course) but unfortunately no one has used it for that yet. The *secondary* use of a wood chipper is to break down tree trimming waste.

That having been said, even the tiny ones that are too small to fit billy-boy into the hopper look like they could be fun to use for cutting up small branches.
They still seem a bit too accident-prone, though.

I'd like to be one of those "pro homeowners" like Chris from Silver Cymbal and have all sorts of high end equipment like tractors and boom lifts and things like that. It would be fun.

Somewhere, perhaps YouTube, i saw a guy that converted an older lawn mower into a tiny portable chipper.

Leaves can be used as bedding for hens, and twigs and small branches can be used for starting fires. Traditional coal heating around here used to be ignited with tree trimming leftovers.

THe small ones are designed to be portable, because you never know when you are going to run into Gates. If you keep a portable one in your trunk and ever need it, you may use it by feeding first one leg, then the other, then the arms. Then you use a machete to disasemble the biggest parts of Gates and feed them in order. It is not as effective as one of the industrial ones but it might work in a pitch.

This reminds me of a childhood conversation of mine about which weapons were best to fend off a zombi. My friend argued a flame thrower was better. I argued an axe was better.

"Flamethrowers are just faster and cooler. Your axe is shit."
"Maybe, but I happen to have a bunch of axes and I have never seen your flamethrowers."

Speaking of trees and chippers:

Some tree cutters on way home from office today ( for our mandatory in-office meeting.  a whole different disaster story.. ).   The 2 holding the stop/slow signs for traffic..  both missing their right hand.

LOL that sounds like it could have been a Far Side.

If a garden torch counts as a flamethrower, then at my home we have both.
