    Nah, no sump in my basement. It does open at-grade on the south facing side though, right at the driveway, so I guess they figure if the basement floods just open the garage or front slider (nevermind the landing for the stairwell that is in the way :P )
    For the garage unit I'll probably have it drain right out that way, and I'm guessing I don't actually need a pump to make it that far. We'll see though.

    I have that one too! (or at least one that looks similar with almost the same model number and is probably mechanically the same).

    Personally, I think it's a beast.

    Brooks Adrenaline (GTS) were my flavor. Yes, I remember that after all these years, I doubt they still make them considering they came out with a new version twice a year. Why are running shoes so friggin ugly? At least mine were.

    If you want some mens size 10 probably not that smelly track spikes with jammed in pins I have an extra pair.

    They are HIDEOUS:



    but she says they feel great and it made her coach happy that she stopped running in casual sneakers.

    Any running store with an actual track in it where they do "gait analysis" is too intense for me. I'll stick with exercise options that don't require me to pound my fatness into the earth repeatedly and probably cause my parts to fall out.

    Dude. Not thirty seconds after I posted that I went to check Facebook and I get a "suggested post" in my feed for Nordstrom's which is having a sale on Brooks Adrenaline GTS. What the hell? Do they know I read a post on an unrelated website that mentioned Brooks Adrenaline GTS?

    Edit: I guess it could be the image search I did for a pic of the Ravennas but why wouldn't the ad be for that model (or whatever you call shoes)?

    They still make them?! The legacy lives on. I could have sworn they used to number them. I had like the 4s.

    Wait!

    WAIT!

They're on amazon but they all have bad reviews - I go easy on it, but I've even used a small hole saw with it and it hasn't broke.

    What sort of thing has one of those helped with?

    - Small (2 inch?) hole saw in a tight space (wood)
    - Unscrewing a bunch screws in a closet where someone had built another shelf in, saving time avoiding having to take the whole thing apart.
    - Unscrewing a bathroom divider quickly, multiple screws close against wall
    - Tensioning/taking out slack on cylinder head - could have been done with drill in regular mode but with 15 bolts or so it's a lot more comfortable this way (with attachments)

    Speaking of which, if you buy a drill you really should get mechanical attachments too.

    1/4, 3/8, and even a 1/2 square drive adapter come in handy for sockets. Use it on mechanical stuff all the time.
