      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Billy Mays is #4

Recommended Posts

I think Vince from the SHAM-WOW commericals is behind it.

But in all seriousness, Billy has become somewhat of an American Icon with his commercials. Sad to hear.

Did you know vince was into Scientology and made a movie about the religion. Wasn't in a good view of the religion and the higher ups kicked him out. It seems like they are trying everything they can to get him put in jail. So its funny that you say that he could be behind it. It wouldn't surprise me if it came out that he was behind it. Not that he would be

He was on a flight Saturday night where the front landing gear broke.

Something hit him on the head and he just brushed it off.

My wife is guarantees he died from a cranial bleed, just like Natasha Richardson.

I was thinking the same thing when I read the story yesterday morning and he mentioned that he was hit pretty hard by things falling out of the overhead compartments of the plane.

I have a hard time believing that. I think we all have hit are heads rather hard in are lifetime, and we are all clearly still here.

Why would you have a hard time believing this when it was so publicly talked about when Natasha Richardson died from a hit to the head.....she got up and moved around and was fine until later that night or the next day when she died......

very sad news indeed!!!!

Sounds like it could've been from Heart Disease not hitting his melon:

CNN

"TV pitchman Billy Mays' death appeared to be from heart disease, not a bump to the head, according to the Hillsborough County medical examiner.

OxiClean pitchman Billy Mays died Sunday morning at his home in Tampa, authorities said.

The final cause of death will not be known until after toxicology results are available, Dr. Vernard Adams said at a Monday news conference.

Mays, 50, was pronounced dead at his home near Tampa Sunday morning, after his wife Deborah found him unresponsive, Tampa police said.

The autopsy conducted Monday morning revealed Mays suffered from hypertensive heart disease, Adams said.

"It's not uncommon to have a sudden death with this kind of disease," Adams said.

Looks like ol' Billy liked to snort the white stuff, and no, I don't mean OxiClean.

No wonder he was so jacked up on his commercials.

His family is in complete denial too - they say it is completely speculative. Ummm, no it's not, it's completely scientific and true. It sounds like the cocaine was a big contributer to his untimely death - when will people learn?

To me, that doesn't hide the good he had done in helping people. I think everyone has their skeletons. It's too bad some turn to drugs and don't get help with it.

He made a lot of inventors rich by giving them a chance. Not everything he pitched made it. Some things failed but he still gave the inventors a shot. He also did things on the side to help less fortunate.

I know, folks hate to see people get rich by helping others. But it is what it is. I'm not going to fault him. Drugs are powerful and evil and he fell into the trap.

sounds like the family might hire another person to do an autopsy they dont believe the first one. I heard the number of drugs in his systems and holy cow, he had like 7 different kinds of drugs at least, some legal some not.

    • I'm not saying I'd plug it in on November 1st and leave it for the year. I'm mainly talking when we start getting into the lows around zero or below. The main reason I asked this was because my father in law stated that it wasn't a good idea to be leaving it plugged in and that the block heaters weren't designed to be left plugged in for more than overnight. It was much nicer last year with the quicker warm ups to load the kids up and take off.    As as far as the global climate change, would it be better to have it plugged in and let it warm up for a couple minutes or hit the auto start and let it idle for 20 minutes?  If I ever get caught up on the honey do's and get my stall in the garage cleaned out I can just park inside. May have to push the junk to the wife's side. That may move the cleaning up on the list. 
    • And there isn't free maribou in my back yard... gotta get the vise out and wax up the thread.....
    • It contributes to global climate change due to electricity from coal usage.  Other than that I can't think of anything that keeping the engine warm would harm.   On the other hand, it is sort of wasteful.   Put it on a timer or go plug it in when you will be using it.   That's my take on it.
    • I think I answered my own question. Looks like I need a cable box from Mediacom to operate this particular TV. 
    • Just found online while doing more researching that this TV does not have a QAM tuner. Does anyone know if this could be the issue?
    • We the People 1911   I am thinking this will be my next gun.
    • I have a question for all of you AV wizards out there. In my house I have 4 or 5  flat screen TV's connected directly to Mediacon cable. No cable box. The only problem to this is my channels are digital channels so Fox 9 is actually on 9.9 and ESPN is on 66.5, etc.  I just recently acquired an older flat screen tv for my garage from a friend who didn't want it anymore. It is about 10 years old.  When I hook it up to cable and try to run the auto programming feature it doesn't find anything.  Could that TV just be too old to do what I am asking? I can get a cable box from Mediacom but I'm trying to avoid that. Any ideas?
    • I understand that the block heater doesn't warm the truck. It does warm the block which in turn heats the antifreeze which circulates through the heater core. The quicker the antifreeze heats up, the quicker the heater in the cab is blowing warm air. I am simply trying to cut down on idling time in the driveway. During the week the only time it's driven is quick trips when the wife is not home. Her vehicle is what's driven most of the time.  My my main concern was leaving the pickup plugged in all the time and causing some other sort of issues with the engine. 
    • How hard has he been running this 400 HP rig? Might be as simple as a plug wire or might require a compression test.
