>>917628 I've been an infantryman in the Guard and have recently been flying as a civilian pilot, OP. I can tell you about military maps and aviation VFR sectionals, but not nautical charts
Both rely on a couple of common parts: You find a point with latitude and longitude, and the grid north is different from magnetic north, which your compass reads, requiring you to add or subtract the Grid-Magnetic, or GM, angle, before you go anywhere. They also mark key terrain, they have a massive legend to give you a reference... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

Literally, why would I buy a super exotic metal frame without knowing the weight?

Even a lot of carbon frame manufacturers stopped giving frame weights years ago. One of the reasons why is this: manufacturer A will make 50 frames, weigh them all, then list the lightest one they weighed as the weight. manufacturer B's marketing team decides that in order to compete they need to claim their frame is a few grams lighter than A's frame, so they do. Manufacturer C's marketing team sees this B's weight claims and goes lower, without even knowing what their frame weighs. Next year A has a "New design" that is 20% lighter,... Comment too long.

What's /n/ think of longboards? I see hundreds of them around college on the daily. Are they worth it for cruising around campus or the neighborhood? On the topic of worth, what will an entry level, fully build board run you and what will putting down the mad money improve? Also why are bikes better?
longboards are fun, I learned to ride on one and then kind of felt lame on it after a while. Now I have a normal board with some big wheels on it that I like to cruise on a lot more, its smaller, lighter, and more manueverable and I can plausibly do a trick on it if I ever practiced that. I had one of the tiny plastic penny boards as well and they are a blast I would use it to bar hop and never had a major issue even when heavily intoxicated. I just got a unicycle which I am attempting to learn but the curve is pretty steep, Soon enough though I will be drunkenly terrorizing... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
