Nemo me impune lacessit

No one provokes me with impunity


No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

Article 1, Section 9, Constitution of the United States

If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

Old steam powered wooden box factory

This is awesome!!! I work as a cabinetmaker, but to be honest, I love watching a people work in wood.  But, when it's in a 110+ year old mill and steam powered to boot , using processes that are extinct pretty much everywhere else, it's a hoot

In the beginning, they show the steam powered driver, the 2 balls on a swivel ? You can see them on top of the cylinder of the engine. When the thing is running, centrifugal force pushes those out, and that's where we get the term "balls out " meaning top speed !!!!!
