    Isn't he one of the Beach Boys?

    Hmm, is that a quotation from a different thread, or did it get deleted?

    New design of throttle-brake lever for my M16

    Oh OK. I have a 912ULS too. My carbs have non-Bing collars that were provided by (but not made by) Magni, which circulate warm coolant around the throttle/manifold end of the carbs. They are meant to warm the carburetor just a bit, but not the intake air, and they don't require any activation...

    "Cootie", a word that originated in the trenches of WWI and is still with us! :)

    My kind of cockpit instructions!

    What cockpit is that of, btw?

    New design of throttle-brake lever for my M16

    coyotekyk, what's that cable control just in front of your throttle/brake levers?

    Breaks/brakes, what's the diff? Unless they're broken. "Weird" is also misspelt. ☺️

    a breath of fact in a forest of dellusion.

    Quite. But here's a more typical headline: https://www.dallasnews.com/news/politics/2021/02/08/rep-ron-wright-dies-after-battle-with-covid-19/ This is the first line of the actual story: "Rep. Ron Wright of Arlington died Sunday night less than three weeks after contracting COVID-19. He was 67."

    a breath of fact in a forest of dellusion.

    Congressman Ron Wright, of Texas, died a couple of months ago. At the time, the stories all indicated it was CorVi that killed him. Only recently did I come to find out that he had advanced lung cancer. But of course no one was reporting that he died from lung cancer... It seems to be the...

    a breath of fact in a forest of dellusion.

    That cartoon leads me to an interesting question. How many of you have been inoculated from smallpox? If you think it's no longer a threat, the US military disagrees. Soldiers going overseas are currently required to get that inoculation (and no, it's not a shot, it's much messier)...

    Pneumatic trim leak

    I agree not having trim can be an even bigger bother. My trim is just a little electric motor hooked up to a wire and spring. Nothin' fancy, but pretty reliable so far.

    a breath of fact in a forest of dellusion.

    A recent study suggests the rate of transmission within households to be about 10%; and actually a bit higher if there are only two persons in the household. The odds of your friend and his daughter getting it from his wife thus seem to be at least 8 to 1 against, so their case is less...

    MARS Ingenuity 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Flights

    Doesn't Colorado have just a few more trees? Interestingly, while earth's amosphere is said to now be 412 ppm CO2, on Mars it's about 950,000 ppm. Give or take. If it's causing global warming there, it isn't helping much: avg surface temps are -82ºF! ☺️ They must have to be very careful about...
