WTF base damage

Actually, PhD holders have as much right to the term "doctor" as MDs.

Doctor was originally used to describe people in teaching positions.

The reason you might come across PhD holders being vocal about it is because people don't generally default to calling them Dr unless they know the person's title. These people work hard for the degree, so I can't really knock them for wanting to be addressed as Dr. Although there are ways to be less snooty about it.

MDs don't have to worry about this. They are always addressed as doctor by default. They might be vocal if we all stop calling them "doctor." Who knows?

If I had a PhD, I wouldn't want to be addressed as Dr. Although I would want it in my written titles.

Written titles/legal documents, OF COURSE.

Asking to be called Doctor makes you pretentious and/or douchey.

Using it in an internet debate... well he kinda retracted that so I give him a pass

The method for repairing the base is essentially the same for a deep gouge that doesn't go to the core, melt PTEX into the gouge and scrape flat. Is the repair more likely to fail(pop out) on a sintered base? You mentioned durability issues but that is somewhat ambiguous. Will using your PTEX sticks with the repair gun be the same for sintered and extruded bases?
Thanks,

The epoxy in the Metal Grip will help adhere to the core material.

The durability is somewhat ambiguous and comes from experience mainly. Drip repair candles are at the low end (they have paraffin in them to help them burn and are a softer material), P-Tex sticks and Repair Ribbon are at the high end of durability, due to their density and the heat at which they are applied.

Hope this helps!

Haha...you are right Leo...actually medical "doctors" title is an honorary title given in the field of medicine. Only those who attain PhDs are actually legit holders of the "Dr" title. Of course, many MDs go on to attain PhDs also...double doctors I guess! It is unusual for those outside of academia who hold PhDs to use the dr title, however if you have a phd and work in academia then it's the reverse and the dr title is used widely teaching etc. I have one myself and as I am not in academia anymore I just use phd these days in a professional context. However, I have no beef with anyone who uses dr title regardless of where they work. Knowing the hell you go through to get the fkr you have every right to use it anywhere! Anyway...back to snowboarding...

You canít get a PhD without the proper knowledge. But, if you have a high post count you can get a free Never Summer snowboard and a PhD in Bullshit. Thanks for showing us the way Leo. You da man. Never Summer Design Team cant wait!
