Job and General Employment Thread

I've noticed from Facebook and the like that there is rampant confusion over what the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) actually does. A small part of the HIPAA law (which mostly applies to other subjects) creates certain specific privacy and security obligations for "cover...

COVID-19

Please keep us posted. As far I am aware, since the vaccines are under emergency use, this is not legal. While there are issues of ADA compliance in terms of having to offer reasonable accommodations, it is not per se prohibited for en employer to require the jab as a condition for employment. That...

You know what really grinds my gears...

A package of mine being delivered by the USPS entered the "Pittsburgh Pa Network Distribution Center, US" last Thursday and has not moved since. This feels like a "fell off the conveyor belt" deal.

All Things Guns & Ammo

Managed to order a couple boxes of bullets for a pre-WWII S&W Military & Police Model of 1905, 4th Change, chambered in .38 S&W (not .38 Special). The S&W is a way older cartridge that despite the close name is not related to the .38 Special and uses its own unique diameter of bullets (0.361). Bough...

OK since no one can give an answer beyond the stock "hicks are stupid" I crunched some numbers. We need 7 million Pennsylvanians (give or take) to get to 70%. There are 67 counties. Biden won 13 counties in PA. Based on my rough estimate, there are 5.5 million adults in these counties. He won 13 of...

Cars & Bikes, Driving & Riding

I always tell shops to tighten mine to spec so I don't get stuck with a flat I can't take off.
I only used the impact wrench to take the nuts off. I put them back on by hand and used my torque wrench to tighten to spec.

Cars & Bikes, Driving & Riding

Totally effortless. Put the jack in place, insert the driver into the socket, and brrrrrrrrt, the car is up in the air. I still need to get the new tires mounted that I bought more than a year ago. I'm thinking I should get the TPMS sensors replaced at the same time. While they're still working fine...

Picked up a corded impact driver and an impact adapter for the scissors jack I use for my car. Cut the time it takes me to swap my wheels and tires by probably 2/3. Why the eff didn't I buy these years ago.

I love how that article appears to be aghast that they were armed. Considering the patron looks to be holding an NAA Mini-Revolver, I kinda feel like "armed" should be in quotes here. Yeah, that technically is a gun, sorta, I guess. I'd definitely recommend he carry something that offers more than ...

I think you, pfidc, can worship god freely and Shyster can worship his gun rack or sumo wrestler thong collection or whatever. Random trivia: The loincloths worn by sumo wrestlers (called mawashi ) are never washed. They just brush off any sand and hang them up to air out. When they eventually get ...

It’s me dogging church goers, if anyone. Religion is there. You can worship wherever. If you think that you need to be inside a building and doing it with friends I have no respect for that position. So you don't have any respect for either the First Amendment or the Second Amendment. You cool with...

I read an article once describing how our ancestors (and recent ancestors at that) would think that we're all nuts with the perpetual war on dandelions because every part of the plant is edible, and it has been consumed by humans since prehistorical times. It's also one of the first plants that spro...
