    Is there a book about tank / equipment?

    The wall it is going in is about 14' long. I want this to be a see through tank with my office on one side and the back wall of the basement bar on the other side. I am thinking a tank 6' to 8' long, 3' to 4' wide and 30" deep depending on what I do with the wet room. With a 14' long wall, I...

    Is there a book about tank / equipment?

    So about 3 years ago I started a biocube to see if this addiction will last. Well it has so I am looking to jump into a large in wall tank. The thing is, sumps, skimmers, and plumbing are all foreign to me. Is there a book that explains all of this? I am probably at least a year away. I am...

    Iran to develop NUCLEAR WARHEAD by the beginning of 2010!

    I have never understood what gave us the right to tell other countries they can or can't have nukes. We are the only ones to ever use a nuclear device on another country. Yet we can dictate to our enemies, they must bring a knife to a gun fight. Sorry that is the best analogy I can come up with.

    My first trip to california

    Some people need to look at a map before chiming in. El Cahon is a suburb of San Diego. Santa Barbra is at least 4 hours away by car. Aquarium of Pacific is in Long Beach and 2 hours away, not worth it in opinion. Don't let the boys fool you into Blacks Beach, it is clothing optional. SD Zoo is...

    Saturn (GM)

    My wife has had an Outlook for over a year and we love it. No troubles with it what so ever. The AWD in the light snow we get in southern Ohio makes for great traction control. The gas milage isn't what we expected (20 to 25) but we average about 16 mpg with most of that being city driving...

    Uh oh, sliding in the polls.

    In 72 hours he angered the military right (Gitmo), the religious right (international abortion funding / Mexico City policy I think its nickname is), and he hasn't solved the recession / banking crisis (ignorant, if people think this is an easy fix).

    Supreme Court question

    Supreme Court question

    Why is John Roberts the Chief Justice yet he is the newest judge on the court?

    150 million dollar inauguration

    Check out this article...basically Obama's cost estimate is including security. Bush's 2005 inauguration of $40MM didn't include security costs. If you add Bush's security cost then the tabs for both events are about even.

    Gonna go see Dubya

    Make sure you look to see that the Secret Service allows on the property. For Obama this past fall before the election, you were not allowed to bring in cameras that had a detachable zoom lens. Basically SLRs and 35mm cameras. They want you to only have point and shoot digital cameras or...

    What's something you've done people would find odd?

    Does spending hundreds of dollars on "Live Rock" count? People outside of the hobby think that is pretty weird.
