    FL Sheriff wants you to shoot a B&E burglar

    if someone thinks my stuff is worth more than their life, go ahead and try to break in while I'm home. Too many news stories of crazies attacking innocent people. So the media pretty much convices the average Joe that anyone breaking in is a threat. jim

    Running out of electric?

    I think a ev would be a decent A to B around town car for most people that use cars for back and forth to work. But a few things that would hold some of us back would be the cost of a new EV. if I'm buying a $40k car, it's got to have a bed, 4 doors and be able to take my toys into the desert. a...

    those aren't regular 6 volt sealed beams like our 12 volt camaro bulbs? maybe a tile/glass drill bit and snake a bulb in it or heat the plug and remove the back of the bulb and insert the led in from the back?
