General Discussion / Just had an earthquake
« Last post by thehornshoppe on May 09, 2022, 05:51:58 AM »
Right at about 1:35 (on my clock) the room started to shake and Helen's cabinets started rattling. It lasted a few seconds I guess, just long enough to realize what it was. First one in my life I have ever felt. So I went to the USGS site and BAM!

I've heard that Lia Thomas uses women's locker room and other female swimmers can see her d!c+ hanging out when changing.

edit: I asked if I could somehow get the REAL ID online through the DMV website... "NO".
I did last year, during the peak of Covid War.  I guess they changed it now.  Do you know what the upside of this is?  The Covid War is over!!!  :D

Politics / REAL ID
« Last post by henry on April 27, 2022, 03:39:39 PM »
So, I go to the DMV office yesterday to get my license renewed.  The lady at the desk says, "Did you bring your birth certificate?".  I momentarily panicked and thought that I wouldn't get my new license after waiting for two hours.  She the said, "That's a shame, I can't give you a real id.". 

I left with my "regular" license and came home exhausted for standing two hours.  It hit me soon after when I thought about what happened.  The USA is experiencing record numbers of undocumented (illegal) people streaming across the Rio Grande everyday.  I being born in NC, a lifetime of paying taxes, and being well documented, I get this shit.

To get a real id they want a birth certificate and a license, W2, etc.  Really?  WTF?  The DMV in NC has me on file since 1972.  Damn.

I may buy a bundle just for kicks.  I'll be in touch.

EDIT!!!
The good folks at ESS seem to think a fair price to ship two $60 lightweight headphones from CA to NC is $39.  Screw them.


I'm disappointed in their new approach to marketing since Ricco retired.

Well, since we live in a small place and my wife doesn't always like to listen to my music, I do use headphones a lot. But like you I have a decent stable of headphones already, mostly open back, only one closed back. I do like the Heil driver that comes with Ed's Horns, but the review I read about the ESS headphones were 'only' so-so.

Hey Capt, I haven't because I'm not a headphone listener.  My wife is into "silent" listening and we have a stable of Sennheiser, JBL and Bose stuff that are pretty good.  The deal is, she wants wireless and these aren't.  I've read a few reviews that were positive and at $30 it's hard to miss if they are mid-fi.

Has anyone actually heard any of their headphones?
