    i think it'd be kind of cool to have a little 12oz lecture series go on where members or mods lecture about something they're knowlegeable
    about.
    an irc group i'm a member of did something similar recently, but i'd kind of like to see it on the 12oz board.

    what do other members think about an interactive lecture series?

    i really like that idea....it would make for an interesting thread. Could we perhaps have a choice of 3-4 topics which the mods list and chose 1 and go into detail with it?

    topics i would like to see.

    1-Fuck Ya'll guide to Los Angeles

    2- PGW going into detail about petty scams.

    3- Raven talking about the history of 120z

    i was thinking along the lines of some of the older writers (30's and up) talking about style, movements, etc. in the culture.

    maybe someone involved in the graphic design industry talking about aesthetics, current trends and waht the industry is moving towards, etc..

    i dunno, there are countless things i could list that i'd personally be interested in

    I could lecture on fixed gear bicycles, computers, video games, home appliances, and evasion of law enforcement (in some cases).

    Yes, but it's a 20" bmx. It's not some cheap ass bike either, and it's not stupid decked out with dumb parts either, it's a solid trail riding bike that's undefeatable. Lifetime warranty frame.

    Let's do appliances....

    Refridgerator: major thing to check for is busted door liners, which means dried and cracked rubber... this is no good, it let's air out of your fridge and causes temperature inside to not be correct... which in the long run will cause the refridgerator to die... because the compressor works overtime, the thermostatus will burn, the heater coil will burn... etc etc... way to prevent this. With a warm wet washcloth, clean the door liner, and the part where it contacts the cabinet.... once that is done, take some vaseline and put it all the way around the liner, this will keep it from sticking and cause a good seal... also door liners are "moldable" by using a hair dryer on high heat, if the door liner is fucked up and not sitting flat against the cabinet, simply take a hair dryer and slowly heat the offending area.

    Also, every so often, you need to take a brush or a vacuum cleaner with a hose, and take the panel off either the back of your fridge, or the front plate.... and clean the dust mess off your coils.... if you fail to do this, you will greatly shorten the life of the refridgerator, the compressor will burn rendering the fridge useless... if your compressor ever burns do not allow someone to replace it, the cost is not worth it, the machine is trash, buy a new one.

    I will write more about different appliances here in the future. I hope this helps someone.

    and BMX tricks
