What's your favorite novel and why is it A Princess of Mars?
>badass confederate veteran accidentally finds a portal to Mars while fleeing merciless Indian savages
>uses courage and strength to win respect from giant Martian barbarians
>go on a quest to save a princess and the world
>later fight a conspiracy by an ethnic minority to enslave the world with a religious hoax (oy vey)

>able to leap small buildings with a single bound

>first appearance of orcs
>possibly the most influential sci-fi/fantasy novel

Sorry, forgot about this on the weekend and went to bed early Monday.

Just read about 1/4 of The Time Machine and I've read The War of the Worlds before.
Both (authors) are in first person and very narrated which seems common for the time.

Burroughs writes more of a story and has stronger characters. Any sci-fi ideas are secondary to the story, basically it is more like Tolkien or Star Wars (fantasy). Any analogy to real society, if there is one, seems accidental, or maybe any story that's realistic about human nature can be analogized to society without the author trying.

With Wells it seems like the only reason for the story is to see "What if X…" What would humanity be like after millennia of evolution, what would happen if alien biological life invaded, etc.

Skimming over The First Men in the Moon, that looks a lot more similar, but so do The Island of Doctor Moreau and The Invisible Man.

got a possible address for someone who might be her mother (Joanne Rodgers?). It's likely a family member if its not her mother.

unable to confirm that J.T. Rodgers is mother or father, but quite possible since her profile states she grew up in Oldbury too

old cetme project reupload
at this point, its pretty much complete. test firing went well– some feed issues related to the magazine and the ramp angle. i bought a pmag and modified it to fit– just need to test it. also need to make a screw for the rear sight.

starting from the beginning. parts kits just came in. trunnion still attached to the cut up receiver, as is the charging handle tube, and rear sight. the flat is in the next pic, along with the remains of the receiver after i cut off charging handle tube and got the trunnion out. last pic is just mockin stuff up.

im doing this all to fight the globalist tbh
way too lazy to import whatever got posted on end
i just marked the pilot holes for the rails. next i'll buy a blade (either a carbide tipped one or an abrasive one?) and slap it on the chop saw to cut the steel gantry plate down to size, since its 190 thousandths too long. then i'll drill the pilot holes and actually start assembling some of this. i have two aluminum sections that i'll use to take the bow out of the cold rolled plate, then i'll weld gussets on once its flattish. i need to put some thought into the order that i do this in, since welding will probably warp it slightly and i'll want to make sure thats on the 'correct' side to cancel the warp that already there.
the linear guides have been a bit of a nightmare. i made a mistake on my first order, getting half the number of required carriages. i talked to the chinamen sales rep and following his instructions, made a second order of just carriages. well they fucked up and sent me the wrong rail profile, so the two aren't compatible. im politely asking them to make right, but who knows if they'll do it. i only have another 30 days to dispute the order, so i hope i wont be out anything. if things go south i'll still be out some cash since i'll have to buy linear carriages from somewhere else, and G*d knows if they'll be compatible so i'll have to buy half the number of rails again too.
this project is so vast it hurts to think about the to do list for it.

well turns out the screws can actually work, but the fasteners are so hard that the HSS bit just kinda 'fizzles'. if i knew that i would have heated them to ruin the temper before i loctited them

It's Oktoberfest time. What do you like to eat with your marzenbier?
It's great with beans and cheese dishes IMO.

Here's my recipe for macaroni & cheese:
* 1/2 lb macaroni
* 1 1/2 oz butter
* 2 Tbsp flour
* 1 tsp ground mustard
* 11 oz milk
* 1 oz swiss
* 2 oz jack
* 4 oz cheddar

Start boiling salted water for the macaroni
Shred the cheese
