    I don't think any GITD handle is that bright. In fact if it is, you probably don't want it anywhere near your hand/pants pocket.

    Not so much as malnourished but unbalanced diet. Meat has everything we need, any one vegetable doesn't. It's perfectly possible to be healthy as vegetarian but one needs to be aware of what...

    It's no different from the many other historical events you can buy photos of in the grand scheme of things.

    But do you have any actual examples of this by "mostly foreign nationals", or is this...

    I don't think the economy for more local stores will work. There are only certain amount of demands, and more stores simply reduce the share of each store, who have to raise price to cover the cost...

    Pretty much. Use something else as example, while you are used to see the $15 Chinese binoculars at walmart, they are pretty crappy because they are made to be crappy. Recently there are demands for...

    I know people who use high powered PCP air rifles to shoot bugs, they will actually flatten bugs on the spot, although a bit messy if that bug is particularly gooey inside.

    Here is the thing, if you want no play the pin would have to be exact same size as hole on blade, however since the lock arm moves in a radius fashion, an exact sized pin isn't going to fit into the...
