    Most houses I've ever seen or lived in had furnaces that heated air via natural gas and then sent that through the ducts.

    US Politics Thread: Year 2 of 1000 of the TrumpenReich

    I love how the left is completely at a loss on how to deal with a GOP president that doesn't roll over to their every whim.

    Average high/low temp in January for Columbus Ohio is 2.3/-6.5 in C. Italy is 11/3, in C. So italy is warmer, true. You are correct. But enough to warrant retrofitting? You assume houses have tile floors here. Thats not correct for many places. And th cost of a retrofit would pay for heating a house for years.

    Ohio is 40 degrees latitude. Italy is 41 degrees in latitude. So it might have colder winter than the southern US, but it's not exactly a chilly place like Norway. I've heard of heated floors, but they only make sense in certain situations.

    Trailerhomes have "subfloor heating" technically.

    Norway is roughly the same latitude as northern Canada, and just four degrees south of the latitude of Alaska. So yeah. Heated floors make more sense there. Where I grew up, it hit 110 F in the summers and had 50 percent humidity. And basements didn't exist because the water table was just a few meters below the ground. If not just a meter in some areas.

    Where are you from, again? A majority of the US lies nearly on the same latitude as northern Africa.

    General cars and vehicles thread.

    Haha nice! It's crazy the kind of effect it makes. I ran to the shop this morning (literally) and picked up the truck. My God, the difference is night and day. It handles five times better I swear. Feels smoother down the road. And they priced me fair for what they did.
  9. After seeing the rampant crack down on speech in the UK, I decided that more should be done than just Thoughts and Prayers. I know that it's a scary time for our UK members. Knowing that what you say on the internet can put you on the wrong side of a Bobby's nightstick, well, I find that despicable. So I've created this place for all your impure or degenerate thoughts. Here's how it works. Perhaps you want to say something "offensive". Instead of saying it yourself, you can message any US member of this forum and have them act as your avatar of avarice. For example, say you had a particularly heinous fish and chips at the local pub. You may want to say, "Oi, that cheeky fucker Barnaby William can't do a proper chip if he had a fryer for hands!" This on it's own could send you straight to jail for defamation. Moreso, if instead of chips that sent you reeling it happened to be a kebab from Omar down the street. Now your crime has gone from offensive to racially insensitive! Anytime such an urge comes along, call on your ex colonial friends. We will translate and post your complaint for all the world to revel in, free of charge! I personally think Omar should learn to pull the fucking kebab off heat before it's crisper than his wife's crotch and blacker than his beard. That tosser! See? Don't you feel better? And now, no one will be knocking on your door, serving you with a summons for being a racist git.

    Looks like I'm replacing the half shaft, pads, and rotors on my truck as well. Picking it up tomorrow. That kicked the cost up a bit.

    United States Gun Control Megathread

    I Used to hand out watermelons from a patch back home to shoe pushers and grandparents. Miss Betty loved me. I get offered up drugs and squares off of kids in backpacks that roamed the street after school. I was the only white guy on my street and everybody knew me. I had the main dealer on speed dial in case I "ever wanted anybody fucked up" cause I helped him with his car once. But I'm freakishly white. Welcome, brother. And yeah black on black kill the fuck out of each other. It's sad as shit.

    Get Away, Damnit. (The Camping Thread)

    This is a thread about camping. Camping is the act of purposely leaving the house and wifi connection in order to sleep on the ground, sometimes in the cold. You may choose to consume less than appetizing food and be at the mercy of nature during this time. This thread can be used for discussion of items one would take during such a time. I did such an event with my girlfriend this weekend. I drove up some rather ungroomed roads to Crystal Mountain, west of Fort Collins. Here is the proof.

    I do a lot of work on my own, but I will pay someone else to mess with ball joints. Especially ones that are old as shit and seen over 20 winters without getting touched. I don't have a torch or a press, but I do have a shop that will do whatever I want as long as I provide the parts.

    It'll probably be just fine then. Is it a mummy bag? I can't lie, I have an issue with those. I need more feet room.
