  1. Not disagreeing, but in my opinion this disaster has brought out the best in people. Houston neighbors are helping neighbors. 

    Real people in Austin are donating blood, goods, services and money at an extraordinary rate. I've seen it first hand. When I worked at the food bank.

    Today my wife donated money and her company doubled it. Be optimistic and stop looking for the bad side dammit.

     

    Now wanna get angry at somebody? Our senator who voted against money for you Yankees in Superstorm Sandy wants money for us.  Hypocrite.

     

    Oh, and I wish everybody would just sell one cigarette for when you have been drinking and you need to turn green without buying a whole pack.

  2. We're alright.

    From Snopes:

     

    Trolls are creating fake tweets about looting

    There are a bunch of social media posts of varying virality claiming to show evidence of widespread looting in Houston after Harvey. At least some of these tweets are obvious trolls — particularly those using the hashtag #HarveyLootCrew. As Motherboard explained, trolls have previously used #BaltimoreLootCrew and #SandyLootCrew to try and make fake posts about looting go viral during major news events.


  3. Willie is closer to the mess than I am. The wind is relatively calm here, but it has been steadily raining for almost 24 hours.

    I have spoken with some friends in Houston who are more concerned.

     

    I bet that building could be bought for a song. I know a song...

  4. All of the repro pedals are the same. My 55 originally came with a 54 pedal which was way shorter than the replacement I found later. What a difference that made!

    The angle shouldn't be a big deal. I think they split the difference. Let me put it this way... I have personally never had an issue with any of the pedals I have installed and I would conservatively estimate that at 10.

     

    Edit:

    After reading this again, it may not have been a 54. It was shaped like earlier rounded pedals and didn't work properly. Just so I don't get grief that 54-55 pedals were the same height...
