Tab ate my long ass whiny rant because I'm phone posting. With less swear words, here is my situation: I have been inadequately trained and outfitted for this job. The client company now knows me because I showed up asking for a fish key; my lacking one was crippling my productivity. It became very clear to the employee that met me that I don't know shit, and things snowballed from there. They are now auditing my work at my boss's expense. With that on my mind, I've been driving around some of the roughest terrain in the state in a 2wd Dodge S"""U"""V. It is now stuck in a saddle on a ridge line with the slopes fore and aft of it too steep to pass. I mean stuck. When I say I hit those hills, I was their pimp, and they owed me money. A lovely older couple in a side-by-side sat me on their spare tire where I clung to the roll bars for dear life while they drove me out of their. The ranger was impressed, nay, in awe at the determination and stupidity it took to get my car where I did. If the company can't extract it, the forestry service is going to drag it out with a bulldozer. I've been assured it's not a bill we want.

  Y'know how some military vets are triggered by fireworks? Well it's pressure cookers for me.

I was at a site with a gas turbine in the basement with the exhaust feeding a Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG). They also have a couple of other boilers and a steam turbine hooked up to a generator. The turbine was shut down when I arrived so I do my inspection while the operator is off messing with something over by the steam turbine. I complete my visual inspection and the operator says he's ready to start the gas turbine. Cool, I can check for leaks and get some running data.

The usual procedure is to start the gas turbine and just run it at idle for a little while to let the HRSG heat up. The HRSG is a boiler that uses the turbine exhaust as the heat source. Sometimes they will also have a "duct burner" which is like an afterburner on a jet, but its job is to make more heat (and steam) not thrust.

The operator starts it up, idles for a while, looking good, then commands the turbine to load up. Once you start putting on load the turbine, that's when the exhaust temperature and volume really starts. After a few minutes the steam pressure is starting to rise, and rise, and rise. The operator was off messing with the steam turbine and taking boilers offline, ok cool he's running the show.

I'm in the control room looking over some stuff on my computer when I hear "POP HIIIIIIIISSSSSSSS" coming from the plant. After a couple of seconds the building fire alarm goes off telling everyone to evacuate. I look out of the control room window expecting to see a burnt and scalded man appearing from a cloud of steam, but there was no visible steam and the operator was fine.

> pressure cooker venting sound, loud as fuck

The operator hauls ass back to the control room and tells me he wants to shut down the turbine. I initiate a normal stop from the control computer then go out to the turbine and hit the e-stop. For the next 20 minutes the fire alarm is going off, people are calling the control room phone asking what the fuck, and the operator going in every direction. The facility fire and safety people show up, wearing no protective gear at all, and look around a bit. Supervisors and managers start to appear.

After the steam whistling stopped, I went over to the steam turbine to find the offending pressure relief valve puking water everywhere. I figured this was a good of a time as any to get the oil sample from the gas turbine, so that's what I did, then packed my shit and left.

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I'll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I've been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I'm the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You're fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that's just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little "clever" comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn't, you didn't, and now you're paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You're fucking dead, kiddo.

I don't believe i've been back here since i was a rifleman in the land of the midnight sun, and a mod here, close to a decade ago. I have no idea if any of you old guys from 10 years ago still hang around and remember me, but I've been meaning to get back here and say hi at least.

Something about being a conscript, albeit a reserve conscript started me down this path. and if you remember my 416 rants, you'll ble glad to hear that I still loathe that fucking thing.

anyways, all the best

Very rarely have reindeer, I'm in a bit of a wrong part of the country for those guys.

The samic minority up north are fond of their reindeers, and the closest most norwegian will get to routinely have reindeer is these red cans of reindeer meatballs with gravy, with a strange sami caricature on it. serve them with some instant mash and you're good.

What we do have however, is a metric fuck load of moose and grouse, that's the game staple around central/south central norway.

far as lutefisk goes, I'll eat literally anything, but not lutefisk.

I do believe the AR10 was dutch-portugese, with a three position lower. One of two known to exist in Norway, and the only one to actually be in working order.

Those OG AR-10s are pretty fucking neat. Very light for a battle rifle of that era.

I laugh every time the gunsmith in my shop spazzes out about how shitty the AR is. I think rifle is fine, but he tries out all the old cliches, shits where it eats, etc.

So on the potential cusp of a global conflict involving the Russians, China, North Korean, Japan, UK, Germany and Australia.

I pose to you this question.

Do you think it will break into a true global conflict between factions like Russia/China interfering or will it be another one of these scenarios while everyone dog piles DPKR?

I sure hope DPKR does not read these instructions

>North Korea’s missile programme has made astounding strides over the past two years. An arsenal that had been based on short- and medium-range missiles along with an intermediate-range Musudan that repeatedly failed flight tests, has suddenly been supplemented by two new missiles: the intermediate-range Hwasong-12 and the intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), Hwasong-14. No other country has transitioned from a medium-range capability to an ICBM in such a short time. What explains this rapid progression? The answer is simple. North Korea has acquired a high-performance liquid-propellant engine (LPE) from a foreign source.

>Available evidence clearly indicates that the LPE is based on the Soviet RD-250 family of engines, and has been modified to operate as the boosting force for the Hwasong-12 and -14. An unknown number of these engines were probably acquired though illicit channels operating in Russia and/or Ukraine. North Korea’s need for an alternative to the failing Musudan and the recent appearance of the RD-250 engine along with other evidence, suggests the transfers occurred within the past two years.

  How To Stop A North Korean Nuclear Missile https://youtu.be/4xbFVdoRzLQ
During 2017, North Korea performed multiple ICBM tests. This video will explain, how to stop a nuclear missile, how to stop a ballistic missile, how to stop an ICBM, and explain how THAAD works, how aegis works, and in general North Korea vs USA. Kim Jong Un recently tested a hydrogen bomb, meaning North Korea nukes are a real threat. So how will the US stop an ICBM?

  Cholesterol bombs and the most unhealthy cooking you have encountered?
Watching some videos on chef Gordon Ramsay showing people how to make fish and chips and fish fingers (fish sticks), he... "complimented" the fish with a chip butty, a French fry sandwich?? I have seen people put potato chips (crisps in the UK) in their sandwiches, but fries?

A chip booteh is a butter sandwich filled with fries (i.e., French fried potatoes, or chips as the British would have it) on buttered white bread or a bread roll, often with an added condiment, such as brown sauce, mayonnaise, or malt vinegar. The chip butty can be found in fish and chip shops and other casual dining establishments in the United Kingdom. It is also less commonly known as a chip sandwich, chip batch, chip roll, chip muffin, piece and chips, chip piece, or chip sarnie. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chip_butty

Continuing the Korean food theme, a favorite is Samyang's Buldalk Bokkeummyeon spicy chicken ramen (aka Korean fire noodles), but I was wondering if they would just sell the spicy demon blood sauce. Well, they are selling bottles of it now. Regular, carbo-style and the hack (nuclear) extremely spicy sauce. So now you can boil up your favorite pasta or make a pot of mac-and-cheese or bake up some chicken wings and pour this sauce on it. Find 'em on Amazon or eBay.

  Triple Frontier, a Netflix original film.
Things fall apart when soft-hearted sentimentalists raid a drug baron's house.
This movie is about an operator's dream scenario: military buddies discovering the location of a coke lord's hideout that's packed full of money. But watching how these operators soft-touch this raid will drive many people nuts. This is one of the few movies where if the main protagonists were more vicious, homicidal and ruthless, things would have probably worked out better for them.

Worried about the drug lord's family returning from church so you have to leave mounds of money back at the house? Nah, just capture or kill them and use their vans to get more of that money out or leave the cash behind that you can't take out for the gang's subordinates to fight over and leave you alone.
The helicopter carrying a ton of money crashes in a remote coca-farming village and the natives are hostile? Gun them down and take their mules to hump the money out.
Nearly at the coast where your escape boat is, but there is a gang of armed teenagers there looking for you? Blast 'em.
One of your crew gets killed and the other surviving members donate their share to his family? Tell them to join the Salvation Army if they want to part of a charity and not a crew of killers and robbers on a high-stakes home invasion against a cartel of criminals.

The movie sort of reminded me of The Wild Bunch (1969) where a group of old bandits get together for one last big score before the "wild west" disappears forever in 1913, but this movie turns into an ultra-violent blast-fest. I was hoping that desperation would have driven the robbers in Triple Frontier to go all-out, heedless of the bodycount and blood spilled needed to get their prize out and safe. But how would I have played it? I wouldn't have had anything to do with the raid as I am not that desirous for money and I certainly would not do the Big M to get it (and live ever after with guilt and paranoia), but I would be more interested in seeing a movie where these robbers discover that ruthlessness is the key to success.

But the soft touch approach made the movie more interesting and different than the generic action flick.

I liked the direction they chose.

I can't wait Czech Republic to demand billions of dollars of compensation for this grievous act of providing them with cheap and reliable supply of gas (which they use to irrigate their lands, btw).

>The low water levels in the river that begins in the Czech Republic then crosses Germany into the North Sea has exposed stones on the river bed whose appearances in history used to warn people that hard times were coming.
Hey, I thought, the global warming is supposed to rise the water level world-wide.Just kidding,

This just in: a climate is threatened by some stones in the rivers.

>Burning huge amounts of electricity isn’t incidental to bitcoin: instead, it’s embedded into the innermost core of the currency, as the operation known as “mining”. In simplified terms, bitcoin mining is a competition to waste the most electricity possible by doing pointless arithmetic quintillions of times a second.
>Credit Suisse estimate that a bitcoin price of $50,000 – five times its level as I write – would increase the electricity consumption tenfold. And at a bitcoin price of $1.1m, it would be profitable to use almost all the electricity currently generated in the world for mining.
I wonder how much of the world's electricity demand is spend to power the needs of world's financial management, billionaires empires and invisible hand of the marked. Because we definitely pay them too much to manage the same "pointless arithmetic" that can be preformed on 80s scientific calculator.
