Millennial dads have pathetic DIY skills


I have a (ex) SIL who can do almost anything and do it well. Stuff breaks, it gets fixed. Don't like the house, remodel. Want fine old iron, buy a 60's car and restore it.

His son, my grandson, has no interest. I've tied to sell the idea that he can acquire skills that he'll be happy to have later in life. Talking to a brick wall.

Maybe I'm just a doddering old fool. Hmmmmn, will have to check back in thirty years.

Whatever happened to Tastes Like Chicken? Didn't he have a column on SI years ago for a very brief time?

Not really positive, but believe I recall tales of bad behavior, maybe running a swindle. Could be wrong.

Time to get out of California?

foxnews.com

California’s uncanny “earthquake pause” is over. It should have already had several “big ones” by now. All that pressure has to go somewhere. Now geologists are nervously eyeing eight nearby volcanoes. And why has Yellowstone supervolcano been acting so weird?

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has warned Southern California to expect more big earthquakes to come. Some, they say, may even be more powerful than those experienced in the past few days.

Did California Just Kill the Gig Economy?
The gig economy was never meant to be a traditional sector, so treating it as such belittles what it actually is.
