  1. Around this area "Is it me or is this site slowly dying" https://www.yesterdaystractors.com/cgi-bin/viewit.cgi?bd=ttales&th=302721
  2. That's upmarket to here where it was reckoned to be a Stillson and a hammer
  3. I managed school all right - right through post grad and still learning. And that doesn't make me any smarter than people I went to school with who haven't collected pieces of paper - maybe just in some fields. Highlight of primary school was when the school inspector asked "What was Mark Twain's real name" and I was the first ever to answer him. I won sixpence.

    Being as to how the stress these days (in Oz at least) is on "working as part of a team" you might consider writing that up a bit. An example - our three boys were all in rowing teams at boarding school, actually all coxed their crews. So they could point to that experience as having some acquaintance with team work, and, having coxed crews, as some experience in team management. Their employers seem to have liked the idea
  5. These days you'd do even worse as you didn't specify which gender of purple
  6. I saw this quote the other day:- "I left school at 13 when I realised that it was impeding my education"
  7. Pretty much as I remember it. Those two bottom corner mounting bolts had their issues on access to hold the nuts.
  8. Going on ours - if you optioned the heavy front protector you didn't get the IH badge on the radiator grille. The heavy shield was fabbed steel, no casting. And there were diagonal braces down from about half way along the back to the front rails - which yours may have but they don't seem to show in the photos. That was a 1952 Oz delivery and some of those pieces might have been made here - adding local content reduced the import duty
  9. If you really want "hidden progress" there was a thread somewhere of putting a small IIRC Denso alternator inside a Delco generator casing
  10. Maybe military applications of this kind of thinking? “Shale Gas: Penn State Researchers Rediscover Circular Reasoning” https://wattsupwiththat.com/2019/09/11/shale-gas-penn-state-researchers-rediscover-circular-reasoning/ “Less disturbance on the region’s geology”??? “The purpose of drilling and frac’ing gas wells is to disturb the region’s geology. That’s how you get the gas to come out of the rocks and go into pipelines If you don’t disturb the geology, you don’t produce oil or gas… You can’t even drill and produce a groundwater well without disturbing the geology.” Evidence that Ph. D. does stand for "Piled Higher and Deeper"
  11. And they'll act suprised if Trump says "Out of NATO"
