This is probably one of the best shows on TV right now.

I'm a casual fan, but I don't think it's the best on right now IMO. Definitely good though!

It's up there with sitcoms for sure. I like it a lot.

If it was on at 9 pm, it would be one thing. But at 8 it's a little PG13 for a PG audience, especially when bookended by the other sitcoms on around it. My wife used to watch it, so I did too, until they had an episode that joked around WAAAAYYY to much about suicide. I told her that was the last time I was ever going to watch it. I'm pretty thick skinned and all for the quick in-and-out joke, but to keep hammering on it the way they did got pretty disgusting. If it wasn't for the endless lineup of ridiculously hot and scantilly clad lays for Charlie, I think alot more people would be looking elsewhere, too. That kid, while being pretty funny, is a pretty bad example of a 13/14/15/16 yr old kid. I know, I know; it's just a show, but push it to 9 so the kiddies have a harder time getting to see a 14 year old puking his guts out from drinking in front of his drunkard uncle, with his plastered Dad giving the OK to the situation.

I'm with BKS. I think it is THE funniest show on TV. It is about the only show that I make time to watch.

It doesn't air until 9:00 around here. But, I wouldn't watch my teenaged daughters watching it. It's a good thing they are married and on their own.

A show about a guy who sleeps with a bunch of women who have no respect for themselves, I'll pass......If its something I don't want my kids watching I probably shouldn't either. smile

I watch the show, I'm not a prude, I don't think it should be pulled off the air, but to me the show has gotten too crude and juvenile. It's almost like they aren't even trying anymore. They just write up a bunch of jokes like we all told each other in 3rd grade and film it. It's just not as funny as it used to be. Jake has become a much better character now that he's older. That's one area that has improved. It's still a good show, just not as good as it used to be IMO.

Great show, I make wish they would bring back "My Worst Weak". make it even better.

I agree toughguy they do seem to go through writing slumps.

Family Guy is about the only thing on right now that makes me laugh out loud.

That and reruns of Seinfeld and King of Queens

This is probably one of the best shows on TV right now.

I agree and have thought so since it has aired. Okay it's not for kids, but frankly neither are another 30% of shows out there. I don't have any problem with them showing humor thats intended for adults.

What irks me, is how silly and pathetic all these reality shows are. "I'm a Celebrity, Get me Outta Here"? "More to Love"?!? Who watches this stuff? This is the reason that 80% of my TV viewing are cable shows and sports games. Anyway I really like the mold of sitcoms: Seinfeld, Cheers, News Radio, etc.

Been watching it since the beginning and it's always good for laughs. I would agree with the views on kids watching. Me being in my late 20's and single it's appropriate for my demographic smile

At times charlie and alan's shenaningans get old and jake has turned into a painful character to watch but then they get the wild cards involved and the humor is back. Rose and Berta being the wild cards. Good stuff

Lots of eye candy as well.

The big bang theory is the best CBS comedy these days. Probably need to be a bit of geek to really get it but thats me so I find it hilarious.

I agree DeBo. Big Bang theory is one of my favorite shows right now. I love Sheldon, that dude just cracks me up.

Two and 1/2 Men is a very good show. I am a Seinfeld fan down deep down, but this show ranks up there. This is the show of today, Seinfeld was back then...

    • Looking for ideas of what to check next.  I have a 1991 75hp Mariner outboard and I am losing pressure on my fuel line.  I have to pump the bulb first time out in the morning and then again if I fish in one spot for a while.  If I do not it will bog down on me and may or may not kill.  If I pump the bulb too much while I am bogging down I will partially flood the motor and kill it.  I then have to turn the key for several 15 second bursts or more to start the motor.   I have replace the bulb fuel line twice to make sure I didn't get a bad one the first time.  I also replaced the fuel line from my built in gas tank to where it goes to connect with the bulb gas line.   Does this sound like the fuel pump?  I want to eliminate any cheap fixes that I can before replacing the fuel pump.  I blew a cylinder a few years ago and I assume the carbs were all redone at that time by my guy.   I owned it for the past 20 years and I have only used non oxy fuel.   Any ideas?  Thanks in advance for any help.
    • Preds make it to the finals.  I thought someone said they were the last team in and technically the 16 seed.   Who ever they face in the finals it will be a battle, hope the Sens make it.  But would be nice to see Cullen get a cup.
    • My hunt in WI this past weekend was tough as well.  I found tons of ramps, they grow everywhere in the area we hunted, but zero morels.  I saw a few pheasant backs, but did not pick them as they did not interest me.  
    • I finally just said screw it, so I picked a couple of guys that I thought would do good (Christie, and Rojas) and some over looked guys that have had a little success this year, and were from the area.  Would never had expected Alton Jones Jr, to go from 80 something place on day 1 to the top 12.  Glad he was on my team though
    • Added these for the fry pan to go with some turkey also.  
    • If you haven't planted your tomatoes yet......plant them laying down on their side. Pick off all the branches up to the top.Lay the plant in a trench and cover the stem up to the top. Put a soil pillow under the top. Just be careful not to break the stem (I have). Tomatoes are the only plant that will send out roots from the buried stem. You will wind up with a large root ball to feed the plant. This also puts the roots closer to the surface where the soil is warmer instead of deep where it is cool.
    • Another disaster. I tried making relatively safe picks, and bombed. I have gone from the top 60 after two events all the way down to just over the 90th percentile. I need to just go with my gut
    • that is what we were thinking too.

    • BEFORE BEGINNING

      Before you begin, make sure you have a good strong battery and make sure it's charged up. If you have a bad or weak battery, you may want to replace it because if it doesn't crank good and strong, you are likely to get a low, inaccurate reading. Make sure your engine is warmed up to operating temperature(if possible). About 10 minutes of riding should do.

      First, take out the spark plug and thread in the adapter for the compression tester. Make sure you have the correct size adapter for your particular ATV. Slide your kill switch to the "off" position. Some ATVs won't crank over with the kill switch in the "off" position, so if yours is like this, then you will need to either unhook your ignition coil or ground the end of the spark plug wire to a good ground. You can use a jumper wire with alligator clips on each end to ground it. Next, make sure the throttle is in the wide open position. You can either hold the throttle lever with your thumb or you may be able to tape it or use a zip tie to fasten it to your handlebars to hold it in the wide open position. If you don't have the throttle in the wide open position, you will probably get too low of a reading. Also, if you are testing a newly rebuilt engine, the engine needs to have been run for, at least, 30 or 40 minutes or you will probably get too low of a reading.

      NOTE: Before you begin with the actual test, make sure the threaded adapter is screwed in good and isn't leaking any air out around it.

      ACTUAL TESTING

      With the throttle in the wide open position, push the start button and crank the engine over until the hand on the gauge stops moving. Each time the engine turns over the hand should raise a little more until it reaches the maximum compression of the engine. When it stops, that is your compression reading. This usually takes no more than 10 seconds. Try to avoid cranking an engine for more than 10 seconds at a time as this is hard on the starter and the battery. Now, push the relief valve on your compression gauge and that will reset the hand back to zero. It's a good ideal to repeat the test a couple or three times to make sure you get an accurate reading. On kick start models, it will be the same procedure, but obviously you will be kicking it over instead of using a start button. Worn piston rings and cylinder walls will increase the number of strokes it takes to reach the maximum reading. If you're kicking, it could possibly take as many as 10-20 kicks to get the highest reading.

      THE READING

      You will need to check your repair manual for your particular model for the correct compression specifications. See note below. Usually, an engine will run OK if it has at least 100 PSI of compression. Most engines will have somewhere between 100-250 and some as high as 300 PSI, depending on the engine. Sometimes they will run with under 100 PSI, but usually not very well. If you get a low reading, you can do a "wet test" to try to help determine the problem.

      If your reading is too high, then you probably have carbon built up on your piston and combustion chamber.

      NOTE: You may get a low reading on some engines because some engines have a decompressor assembly built into the camshaft. Check the service manual for your quad to see whether or not your quad has a decompressor assembly built into the cam.

      WET TEST

      If you got a low reading, pour about 1-2 teaspoons of clean motor oil down into the cylinder through the spark plug hole and do the compression test again. If your reading increases, then your rings or cylinder walls are probably worn. If your reading doesn't increase, then it's probably your valves. You could have a bent valve, you may have leaky valve seats, or your valve clearance may not be adjusted properly. Also, low compression can be caused by a blown head gasket.

      CAUSES OF LOW COMPRESSION

      *Worn piston rings or worn or damaged cylinder walls
      *Leaking valves
      *Valve clearance not properly set
      *Blown head gasket

      CAUSE OF HIGH COMPRESSION (stock engines)

      *Carbon buildup in combustion chamber and on piston

      NOTE: Compression testing is a good way to keep track or "gauge" the wear in your engine. When you first get your ATV or when you rebuild the engine in your ATV, you can do a compression test and then later on, you can do them periodically. This will help you determine the wear in your engine each time you do a compression test and will guide you in knowing when your engine needs rebuilding.

      This is about all I can think of. I hope I didn't leave anything out and I hope this helps everyone with their compression tests.
