    Not to go off topic but, do not know about the discrimination there. The philanthropy observation may be well wishers or more than. Will let OP speak to that of course.

    As long as can avoid those three words, or references to, to an extent could be good to go. Mods jobs are not easy am fairly certain.

    PPSL build?

    Maybe I missed it but what were your cabinet dimensions and tuning ?

    Umm...I'm not sure where you are going with the philanthropic observation but "little people" don't have the same discriminatory problems that transgender folks do.

    I thought it looked like either eastern Ontario or Quebec. Infloor heating is very nice. Heading down for meetings in Gatineau next week.

    Oh, this thread is going to get locked. No question. Maybe this will help, I Love Klipsch!!!

    This sounds like it could be a religious proclamation. LOL.

    The mods have a hard job balancing act as well. whether I should agree or not, they are the final arbiter here. Trust in their conclusions, in the final analysis, I respect. Self moderation left up to one self, which I do now and then.

    Look, ZT, I get where you're coming from. My point is that everyone of us has to deal with 'abnormalities' every day. I used to be called Pinocchio when I was a freshman due to my nose being a little large for my face at the time. Well, as time went on, my head got bigger and everything has worked out OK. This constant effort of 'philanthropy' is lost when it isn't true. Many people today pound there chest's for this movement, or that. But why do they do it? To help the affected people, or because it makes them feel better about themselves? True philanthropy is a noble quest, but often falls significantly short. BTW, what happened to the 'little people' movement? Still don't see too many provisions being made for them. Again, true philanthropic people are unusually dynamic. They don't just pick this or that.

    I can take that link down, if you guys think it would cause this thread to get locked. I am the type where I think we are all more alike than we are all different so I tend to look at the world through rose colored glasses at times, cause I like the view. These are the types of provocative conversations that can help speed up positive changes and I would hate it if this thread were shutdown, because of a stupid video. If you have some extra time, and you need a good laugh, google “it’s ma’am meme”...

    Well it's changed me! I leave the seat up now on purpose with a purpose! Heshe created the toxic me, now deal with it! They fuss because I won't/can't cross my legs, `cause the way I think (the normal male chivalrous values), cause I'm this, cause I'm that...... ARRGGGGHHH! I will not p+ss on the seat though, they haven't ticked me off that much.... yet. F `em all if they/you/he/she/it refuse now to accept reality, it'll have to accept that heshe have to touch that seat and I don't have to because I pick it up with the edge of my boot and I flush it the same way. I only hope they/it remember when all of us lowered the seat out of kindness and respect. All that b*tch#ng has erased that so I'm sorry if you're a cool/regular gal and you get there after me. Convince the others to quit their belly achin' and I'll start lowering the seat again! Better not confuse me with the signs outside the bathrooms, I'll just whip it out for God & everybody to see and pee between the doors and tell them/they/it that I was confused! Then maybe I can sue it for hurting my feelings & embarrassing me because they/them did not explain things well enough for standard/regular/old fashioned males and females. And why do you say "excuse me" in a situation where you're barreling down the aisle at 15 mph, wouldn't "F you, get out of my way" be more appropriate? That's what I see on your face and in your eyes! "Go get the tar and feathers!" I've got it here, I put it out when the election people start showing up the last couple of times. Don't come here to ask me to....... or ......! You've forgotten that it's a two way street & that I know that you've lost your mind, and I'm not playin' your games (puckered kisser smiley)

    Yes there is confusion over the issue. Just because I feel intimidated or otherwise uncomfortable over a young lady pumping iron well, guess I will just be uncomfortable. A balance would be nice without a sports call like...outside interference.

    What finish OP? I am still slightkky surprised that we don't see more of these for sale on the secondary market.

    I understand. That is why I keep cautioning folks not to go over the line unless they want this thread locked by the moderators. {Edit: Btw, I don't care because it's not my issue and notice there aren't any women involved with the conversation and it is about transgender athletes in their sports.}

    I'm not sure what you are saying here but my guess is if Caitlin Jenner walked into a Men's bathroom she would garner more negative attention than if she used the women's. Otoh, our real-world situation was having a 6 to 7 year old walk into the women's dressing room with girls saying, "There is a boy in here," and embarrassing the person immensely. A year later that same person uses the Men's and no one has said a word. Even those that knew him as a girl didn't get upset and it surprisingly seemed like a non-issue.

    That's about the same price Klipsch had on closeout a couple years ago. Pretty good deal. They are getting hard to find, especially in the boxes.

    If you aren’t paying attention to the bigger picture of this conversation, you are correct.

    In slab electric heating. I live in Québec where electricity is still relatively cheap. The building is R26.5 and also incredibly airtight. Haven't yet seen the hydro bill for this winter, but the additional expense was factored in when we chose to build. In floor radiant heating is something special! I keep it a little cool in here, around 69 degrees (I think), 20.5 celsius, but because my feet are never cold it doesn't bother me. The heating wire option ticked off the most boxes of all the heating systems I researched: it's absolutely silent (no pumps or boilers humming away as with hydronic in floor heating), no moving air (like baseboard heaters, which also rattle something awful), DIY friendly... so far I'm loving it, and we've had quite the winter!!

    That's because it's off topic.

    I didn't disparage transgender folks intentionally, true transgender, not choice. The lines are blurred. We've made concessions for .6% of the population, to the tune of millions and millions of dollars for what? To decide which bathroom to use? Quite frankly, if a chromosomal woman walks into a men's bathroom because she thinks she's a man, 99.4% of the people in that bathroom are going to be getting uncomfortably close to the urinal. Same goes in the opposite. If a 6'4" man walks into the ladies restroom in a dress I don't think the ladies are going to be very happy. "Parts is parts", immortal words of Ernest P. Worrell. I can see you shaking your head now.

    After beating #1 Virginia last weekend, Duke jumped into the #1 spot to take on #8 North Carolina tonight. The Tar Hills ran them out of their own gym at one time having a 20+ point lead. Duke lost the best player in the country Zion Williamson 33 seconds into the game when he slipped and completely blew out his shoe. It came completely apart and Zion hurt the opposite knee in the process.
