Re: NOT discussing US politics here... but is there a place for it on the internet?

I don’t discuss politics, even with family members, except occasionally privately with my brother, because he isn’t brainwashed into one extreme camp or the other. And when we do discuss it, HE’s usually the one who brings it up. The US is more divided right now than ever before. Talking about it i...

Re: NOT discussing US politics here... but is there a place for it on the internet?

On the internet?

Civilized discussions on politics, these days and in the current climate?

I have no idea, haven't see any really that actually are calm unless everyone is in the same camp and thinks the same way.

Otherwise it will get out of hand fast.

All I have seen lately is complete insanity.

I am not sure why, but BF will do that on occasion. Sometimes it is down everywhere and sometimes if I turn on my VPN and chose a new location it works. Weird.


Been acting weird for the past year or so since they went with a new host.

Back in the 80's they were still removing bombs over in Guam.

Slowly for sure.

Re: Laid my love to rest today

Our dog, a Bichon Frise, became severely ill around 6 to 8 weeks ago. It was his teeth, and the only way to save him seemed to be to pull the 11 remaining teeth he had. He was 16+ years old, but otherwise in good health. He was only 17lbs. What a giant though. He was my best friend. What a sweet fr...

Re: Anyone Play Sniper Elite 4?

Another video, but showing in game performance with the OSD in the upper left corner.

It's at 1440P, but at 1.5X or 4K details.

Re: Watches

What about a hand held GPS? That and your smart phone combined should do it I believe. As I mentioned I have offline maps stored on my phone. Osmand maps even feature hiking trails, elevation, camp spots etc. not even marked on the parks maps etc. Pretty robust battery on mine too, 5,000 mah. I've ...

Re: What has become of Bladeforums?

There are lots of great folks on there and the amount of collective knowledge on there is amazing. Many seasoned knife makers frequent the site and I have learned a lot on there. I am often critical of the site but the truth is that it is just a few bad apples mostly. If they could just reel those ...

Honestly I've never had a bad interaction on BF. I have only been personally attacked here. I try to just roll with the punches. Lord knows I've poked the bear plenty of times here.

I am sitting here with my mouth agape! Thank you all for this forum and for this specific thread! Talk about a sanity check! I really wondered about BF? There are a number of bullies/punks that just tear into people with complete impunity. Not sure why they aren't filtered out? While there are some...

Re: What has become of Bladeforums?

Does someone make their living off Bladeforums? Yes, it is a privately owned forum and run for profit. Spark also owns a knife shop called One Stop Knife Shop in Kentucky. The for profit aspect turns it into a shill forum at times. Manufactures pay to host sub forums on there and get to run their s...
