Re: More Stuff

"If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate." Or the container. Or the surface the container rests upon. Or the air around it all. Or the room the table is in. Or the building the room is in. Etc, etc. When people tell me I'm part of the problem because I'm not part of THEIR...

Re: More Stuff

Does anyone know how to make a cat start using a litter box? I'm tired of my dad's cat refusing to use one if either of the other cats has used it, and pissing on my floor instead. I'm not sure that the concept of "making a cat do X" is even meaningful in this universe. Cats are territorial, and do...

Well, it's German . Wha'd you expect? :twisted: English has weird rules, too. We just don't notice. :mrgreen: English is, at its core, a Germanic language, so it came by some of its weird rules by that path. Others came from its large admixture of French (actually a whole complex cluster of Romance...

Sarge, the Sage. Yes. With Thanksgiving coming up, that is always good advice. I would be very careful either calling Sarge a turkey or telling him to get stuffed... By no means, sir. With his skill and experience, and in the tradition of promoting an officer or NCO upon retirement, I would see him...

Re: Movers, i kill you filthy

With respect to the topic title... it's well chosen to describe the pain and wounds of moving. Randy is probably thinking "The scars... my destination!" hiss Hey, if you serve up an obscure reference around here, you should expect somebody to lob it back at you! :) Or, should I say (with a jaunty w...

Re: Anyone Want Some Grapefruit?

Would you be allowed to put down some compost, maybe with mulch on top of it? Adding organic matter to the soil would help improve the soil's moisture-holding ability and could reduce stress in the tree.

Re: Bad Jokes II

Having had to make a penny-related contribution to the Pun Jar recently, I was reminded of the time I stopped into a church in a small town. The congregation was small and the church had clearly fallen on hard times. When they passed around a collection dish for offerings, I could immediately see th...

And a few Sperry-Univac behemoths... :) Ah.... perhaps a Univac 1108? I once used one of those to point out an error in my FORTRAN instructor's claims about FORTRAN functions. The program I wrote demonstrated that the Univac 1108 could be programmed to show that 2+2 equals 6 (and of course this is ...

I keep wondering why people insist on advertising to all drivers that their children are mentally handicapped. They keep saying "SLOW CHILDREN AT PLAY".
Or what happens when they grow up - SLOW MEN WORKING.
Truth in advertising?

Zevo Insect Spray. I'm still investigating, but it might be worth a look... There are wasp-killing sprays that are basically mint oil in soapy water, in a CO2-pressurized spray can. They work pretty well... effective knock-down and they disable the wasps quickly. Orange oil is an effective ant repe...

Re: More Stuff

Bah. Bed bug infestations are more proof the DDT ban was overreaction. Why do you say that? The current rash (heh) of bed bug infestations is driven largely by the fact that bed bugs have adapted/evolved resistance to a lot of insecticides. I have no reason to believe that the same thing wouldn't h...
