Interesting observation, but definitely not true.
About the best weather forecast you can get is no more that 48 hours
which translates to about 150 miles, so the best you can do is base
your voyage on historical long range weather patterns and update
Classic examples are the fact nobody heads south for Cabo until Dec 1
from San Diego if you are on the left coast, or you also don't head to
the Caribbean until after hurricane season, again usually Dec 1 if
departing from Florida if on the east coast.
Once at sea, the shoreline is not your friend, especially a lee shore
such as you have from Alaska to Cape Horn.
Have had people suggest going to Las Vegas and do a little gambling.
I just smile and suggest they do a little single handed sailing
(My preferred method) if they truly want to gamble.
If you screw up at sea, you probably end up at the bottom of the food
You quickly learn to be very prudent; however, that doesn't include
in port, but it does include recognizing the fact that you are at the
of Mother Nature.
Two things you must accept:
1) Haste definitely makes waste whether in the shop or on board a
2) Mother Nature is a BITCH.
I'm reminded of Bill Pickney, the first black man to circumnavigate
when asked what was the most important piece of equipment he had on
simply smiled and pointed to his head.
Venture forth with care, be it a passage in a vehicle or a new project
in the shop.
My comment was that I lower the blade beneath the table *when I'm finished
using the saw*; I don't lower it every blasted time I turn it off. My shop
doesn't have all the space in the world, and when I'm not using the saw for its
intended purpose, chances are good I'm going to take advantage of the table
surface for other random activity. Having the blade protruding up through the
table when the saw is sitting idle for hours or days on end just isn't a very
safe place for it to be displacing air.
See Nad. See Nad go. Go Nad!
To reply, eat the taco.
That'd work. ;)
P.S: Jayzuss! Not even Texicans have pointy-toed boots like that!

If he offered you a _discount_ for installing a Sawstop that would make
sense--you'd be reducing your risk over what it already is. But if he's
saying he's going to increase the rates when there's no increase in
risk, you really oughta file a complaint with the insurance commission.
Fine to push for them. Not so fine when you start trying to bully
people into buying them.
When claims go down, rates tend to follow.
And to answer which would cost more, the SawStop or the Insurance, if you
use the technology and don't visit the hospital when the saw saves you that
trip, the insurance company does not hear about it.
If you use a regular saw w/o the technoligy and end up going to the hospital
the insurance company will hear about it and you will likely pay higher
premiums and as a whole most every one else will also because this is not an
isolated incident and the cost of reattaching a finger or other digit is
going to cost way more than your premium will increase.
Additionally if you end up having a major accident you will pay for the rest
of your life and I am not talking money.

I was not aware of any sound or impact from the air bag, just having to
rake it out of my face when the action was over.
Totaled both vehicles, kid stayed in the hospital for three weeks, I
picked out another truck and went home, was sore the next day.
I am quite fond of airbags.
I did close to the same thing; saw the suv pull out while I was going 60,
but got slowed to perhaps 35 or 40 MPH before impact.
They are fricking LOUD ! ! ! Imagine two or thee 12 ga shotgun shells going
off 2 feet in front of your face, and another couple going off in front of
the passenger's seat.
My ears were ringing like crazy. I got out and checked on the other car,
talked to the first people that stopped and made sure police were on the
way, and the police were there in a few minutes. It was then I walked over
to my car to get something off of the seat, and I noticed the car was still
running. It was the first time in 8 to 10 minutes that my ears were not
ringing so loud that I was prevented from hearing a running engine.
I never felt the bag hit my face or body, because I ride pretty far reclined
and far from the wheel, and always wear seat belts. I saw it coming and
braced on the wheel pretty hard, I guess.
