I just checked Home Depot's website and in the product overview for a framing 2x4 it gives the following information:

Common: 2 in. x 4 in. x 8 ft.; Actual: 1.5 in. x 3.5 in. x 96 in.

Lowes, Menard's, and all the other stores of this type say the same thing. Nobody is lying about what they're selling. This lawsuit is the epitome of frivolous lawsuits and should be thrown out the first day.

Nope. We don't need any more gun laws. We have plenty. We just need to enforce the ones we have.

Did you notice today that the only way a bad man with a gun was stopped was by a good man with a gun? Yes, it was a cop with a gun, but cops can't be standing by everyone's side. You people will never understand why citizens need guns. When seconds count the police are minutes away.

I'm 64 and I am in the same boat as millennials. Since I never watch live broadcast network television I have no idea what shows are on, much less which network produced them.

I watch the news, movies and series on Netflix and Amazon Prime, and some documentaries from various sources. I watched Lost on Netflix, but I can't tell you which network it was originally on. Sitcoms? Haven't watched one in over a decade because they're all the same, with only the characters and situations changed. I don't care for mysteries or cop shows. There's very little good sci-fi being produced nowadays.

The premiums (HBO, Showtime, Starz, etc) are producing much better series than ABC, NBC, or CBS. I liked True Blood, Black Sails, The Young Pope, Outlander, and now I'm into American Gods.
