  1. Agreed. That was why I said O2/air, since I wasn't sure which they meant. But now here is an article that says it has already been done: Rescuers have fed a kilometres-long air pipe into the cave to restore oxygen levels in the chamber where the team are sheltering, accompanied by medics and expert divers. Source: https://www.afp.com/en/news/205/conditions-perfect-evacuation-thai-boys-cave-doc-17a6wy6 BBC is saying the same: There are concerns about the falling oxygen level in the chamber, but officials say an air line into the cave has now been installed.

  2. I've been scannning the news sites this morning; It sounds like they have given up on the idea of running an air/O2 hose due to the difficulty of threading it through the caves. And due to the rapidly declining O2 levels and rising CO2 levels, the probability is increasing that they will try to bring them out via buddy diving.

  3. His rosy outlook was almost immediately rejected by North Korea’s foreign ministry, which called the U.S. attitude to the talks “regrettable” and accused the United States of making unilateral demands for denuclearization. Pompeo just hours earlier said the two sides engaged in “good-faith negotiations.” Take link at top of page: https://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Awashingtonpost.com+Secretary+of+State+Pompeo+leaves+North+Korea+with+promise+of+more+talks+but+no+tangible+breakthrough "There are only three things of value: younger women, faster airplanes, and bigger crocodiles" - Arthur Jones.
  4. That winning Multistrada is a touring bike. Believe it or not, PPIHC rules prohibit any bike that was originally built with clip-on handlebars.

  13. I've had the idiots-with-the-impact wrench pull that crap in the past. For that reason, I would loosen them, and torque them to spec when I got home. Last time I bought tires (Discount Tire) I was prepared to yell at the guy if if I saw him just hold the impact wrench on until it stopped rotating. But to my pleasant surprise, he pulled out a torque wrench and tightened them with that.
  14. WTF is that supposed to mean?
