Operate at a low enough pressure to facilitate a cheap thin steel cylinder.

Halon works differently,
it does displace oxygen like CO2, but it actually breaks the chains of combustion, so you need much less of it, and there's less chance of the fire starting back up again.

Halon kills ozone by molecularily combining with it,
it does the same thing in a fire, changing the burning hydrocarbon chains, and oxygen molecules so the fire stops.


It's so good at killing fire, that it travels up in to the atmosphere when it's done to kick some ozone ass too.

I miss full-strength flush toilets. Pretty much all I see now are "low-flow" ones.

The SO and I might have to install industrial ones in our next home. Not that we produce super-human poop or anything, we just prefer a super hefty flush.

We just really don't like weak flush toilets!

Poop isn't the only concern. For example, when a lady pees - we only need a few squares of TP. Every now and then after wiping, the stupid small amount of TP will land just perfectly in the bowl where the crappy low flow won't catch it and pull it down. So, it stays stuck to the side of the bowl until I literally reach in and help it out.

Just don't install cheap shitters. Some of the new high efficiency toilets are really good. I've installed a couple of Kohlers in our house that will flush a bucket of golf balls. Spend about $250 and you can get a quality shitter.

We had 4 to replace in this house when we bought it, so we didn't go really high end. We spent about half that for each, and went with the push-button ones. I will say though, I didn't see any that weren't low flow. Do they even make "high flow" toilets anymore?

They got banned along with all "flavored cigarettes", but not menthol as that would be racist.

I don't shit golf balls, I shit bricks. Gimmie the toilet with the 5 gallon pressure tank that sounds like a fawkin' SR-71 when you flush it.

This!

I'm a freakin' bridge builder. No matter what, it's going to spin until it's crossways, then the water is going to go down, and leave a turd-bridge there until the bowl fills up again and re-floats the log.

Not really. The low-flow ones have improved greatly since they first came out. But you definitely get what you pay for. The MaP testing seems to be the best indication of performance. Sure, a toilet can flush a couple dozen golf balls, but how often do you want to flush golf balls.

You can search their results here: MaP Search | MaP Toilet Testing

I miss my Raichle Palu hiking boots. I think my dad paid $195 for them in 1996 when I was in high school . They were swiss made with one piece full grain leather outers, glove soft leather inners, and a locking lace system. It took me a full summer to break them in, but oh my god, I spent 6 weeks mapping rocks in the White/Inyo range in eastern California and my feet were loving it. I wasn't carrying a lot of pack weight, well, except in the morning with 3 gals of water. Those boots were nimble, and still protected the ankle and soles.

I've still got them, but they've been resoled three times now and the soles just don't stick to the welt like they used too. Damn good boots. I should have bought two or three pairs when I had the chance.

To each their own. If I put on a boot and it takes more than a day to break in, I ain't wearing it. No level of durability is worth a summer of misery.

I'll agree with everyone on the shitters. My wife makes fun of me constantly because I bitch about the pussy flush mode.

Boots are a huge one, especially since Danners went to chinese construction. I gave up and just started buying wolverines every year, they break in in about 10 minutes, and are thoroughly used up in about a year. I don't know how anybody likes the cat boots though, I've seen them last anywhere from 1 month, to several years so their build quality seems all over the place. Not worth bothering with IMO.

I'm going to grab a few of those gas can spouts next time I'm at ACE. But I just went to a couple of VP racing fuel jugs for my dirtbike/truck. No DOT numbers so I guess you can't transport fuel in them though...
