    I'm personally not a coal miner. I'm in the transportation business but i work with coal and fuel haulers daily. They are working 24/7 and have contracts for the next 3-4 years. Majority of the business was done right after the election. 
    So you're shipping high grade anthracite to China where they make cheap steel that we import.  And that's increased because Trump put pressure on China to stop buying (or decrease buying) it from DPRK.  (And all this because it's not technically feasible to make coke from NG.) 

    Isn't that taking away US steel workers jobs?

    What strikes me as weird is that there looks to be a regular kitchen behind it. So that room is the out door kitchen, but it isn't. Looks like the seats may face some louvered doors, and that might be a bug light in front of the doors into the interior kitchen.

    Any one visited "McMansion Hell?"
    That's a porch.  Look at the window on the right.

    This is a PSA. If you have children hug them and tell them you love them everyday. DO NOT TELL THEM THAT THEY ARE SPECIAL. This is what a special child does. 
    Probably good parental advise, unless your kid really *is* special.  And then you should double down on not telling them they're special.

    "Pizzagate" gunman from North Carolina, that drove to DC, entered a pizza joint to investigate a Democrat conspiracy, of holding children against their will to be used as sex slaves, at that sight, firing 4 rounds from his AR15 (while also carrying a hand gun), received a prison sentence of 4 years today.
    No psych evaluation was ordered, as he plead guilty in March.

    Alex Jones deserves a few years too for inciting an idiot.
    I think it's actually this Jack Posobiec character, who in a totally unrelated coincidence, is also behind the protests of the Julius Caesar play.

    Nutjobs gonna nut, yo!
    I just read the Edgar Welch nut (shooter) was an Infowars fan.  Alex Jones apologized for Pizzagate...it's all fun, ratings and money until someone believes it enough to pull a gun.

    I heard of people cooking without the daisy wheel top, but, can you still cook with the bottom vent blocked and just the top open?  If you need the bottom door open to do an overnight, anyone could walk by and accidentally close the bottom door coming in/out the porch and we'll be seeing another "Safe to eat" post.
    No, the egg will go out with the bottom vent closed. 

    I suspect the bottom vent works fine, although you can't see it in the picture because the cabinet door is closed.  Unless they put the egg in there air tight with caulk and a gasket.
