Self contradiction is no problem for a person who believes in the government.

If I *had* believed in the government before, which I hadn't, taking the job sewing cargo parachutes would have cured me.

Let me quote the specs for the parachute deployment bag:

In two places on each bag there are to be two bartacks arranged side-by-side. They are each to be placed 1/8" from the edge of the material, to be 1/8" wide, and to be spaced 1/8" apart. The material upon which this is done is specced to be 1/2" wide. Do the math.

In 4 places on each bag we are to sew a pattern known as a "Boxed X". The pattern is specced to be 1.5" square and to be placed 1/8" from 3 edges of a piece of folded, 2" webbing. Graph it out.

I've never seen the construction of sails up close, but with the correct machine and correct attachments I'm sure I could -- though one of my friends is superior at long, straight seams so you should divide the work so that she does the long, straight seams and I do the tight parts with critical measurements. I can work to a 1/16" precision.

Distractions aside,

Did you actually do the government math?

I desperately need a new #3 jib, can you sew dacron ?


Just buy some "Depens" they may not cost that much for your budget.

In 2010, the most recent year I checked, we gave them $3.175 billion in economic and military aid. That's more than $61,000,000 a week. When we're $16 trillion in the hole, are you OK with that?- As Predicted Democrats Abandoning Obama

Dear Comrade Y-

I’m ok with it.

You know how much a freakin’ aircraft carrier costs? A new Ford class carrier costs about $12-$14 billion and carries about 75 aircraft.
