Buy a car for the Mrs ?

Aw man.  That’s harsh,

but funny!   :rotflmao:

 :rotflmao:

No doubt, that Gary is a funny man alright.

Tell you what G, the first time that I have the pleasure of rowing through the gears of that sweet six speed in my girly car, with the top down, while my wife and I are enjoying the views of a coastal highway somewhere, I'll put on some Beatles, or maybe The Traveling Wilburys (Tweeter and The Monkey Man of course), on the stereo, chuckle a bit, and think of just how funny you are...

I had an MBenz SKS for a time.  Tons of fun to drive with the top down.  Plus, Miatas don’t look so girly in racing livery going around the Thunderhill Raceway track in Willows, CA.  Fun car!

A rental bicycle that is in a peculiar place.  Spotted first on Sat. 9/8 along riverbank. 
One week later on 9/15, I took pictures Bike & 2, and a screen shot of my phone in map mode so the location is recorded.
One week later on 9/21, I took pictures 3 & 4.  That is an old railroad bridge support in the river.
I did notify the rental company to make them aware of it.  I bet it’s going to be there for a while.

You misunderstand me, Sir. I wish you and the Missus many happy and safe miles before your activity is deemed unhealthy and uncaring for the environment and becomes socially unacceptable and therefore illegal. The Left Coast may suit you til that occurs. (and I'm ok with the Wilburys)  :rotflmao:

Leave it to you to somehow politicize this...

You mean between pinkie and Mr C.? Oh don't mind that, it's just the usual outside the arena banter, it's like foreplay that leads up to an argument instead of sex.

Now as for the bicycle stuff, well I think that is going to be determined to be some sort of a kinetic art display done by either a new art student or just a crazy person that thinks they are an artist, when in fact they are a future episode of hoarders.

Damn this place is dead!!!

I may have to take up slamming POTUS again in the Arena just to liven this place up...

Ok then, The Beatles it is.

By the post above I thought you were looking for some fun. My bad.

OK then, now on to something completely different.

 This question sort of fits here in "A thread about nothing at all..." because 1) it's about a thread, as in a thread of a machine screw; and 2) I'm finding almost nothing at all when I try to research it.

What is a 5/32-32 thread size used for?  ???

Is it British?   Specialty automotive?  A special size for Helicoil usage?  Perhaps an old obsolete size? I've search through many online charts of screw sizes, zooming in on many photos of thread checker kits and fixtures. I even searched through my old high school copy of Machinery's Handbook which I thought for sure would have the answer.  No. So far the only thing I've found is that there are both taps, dies, and screws of that size available, but for what I don't know.  I have found both NS and UNS designators on some of the taps and dies available, but I don't know if the s stands for special or superfine or neither.

I ask this here because some of you are a lot more experienced than I, and also have knowledge of and access to references that I don't even know exist. If I can't find it in Machinery's Handbook then I assume it doesn't exist, at least until now.

edit: Why do I ask?..short story is I purchased a set of steel nut rivets or threaded inserts if you prefer, and I noticed that it included 80 5/32-32 inserts that I had never seen before and didn't fit any of my thread checkers, neither metric or SAE so it got me to wondering why it was included and what was it used for?
