thanks. I think this is one of the best on youtube.

I got hooked on this series about 6 months ago and binge watched it from the beginning. It's a great introduction to ship building, and one hell of a project.
It's not exactly right to call it a restoration, there's hardly any of the original wood left in it. I think in the end there's going to be the transom and lead keel left, everything else being replaced including the dozens of huge iron, now polished brass, castings and thousands of custom copper rivets.

Are You A Patriot?

Buttle says...

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore,
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
A home and a Country should leave us no more?
Their blood has wash’d out their foul footstep’s pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Bill Maher: The United States of You Don’t Wanna Know

I couldn't watch the whole thing; seems like one of those rants intended to make people stupider. Did he ever mention the meat labeling WTO case that the US lost, which made the new law the only alternative to a trade war?

Family Gets Lost in Corn Maze, Calls 911

Buttle says...

News stories said they could hear traffic and see streetlights, but couldn't figure out how to get to them. Seems like a serious lack of imagination -- When in danger or in doubt, cheat. I can't see why they couldn't just walk straight, possibly knocking over some of the corn stalks.
