Re: Movers, i kill you filthy

Military overseas moves can be -- interesting. The usual method involves everything going into cardboard boxes, labeling them (Kitchen, Master Bedroom, etc), then the boxes are stacked in a plywood container about six by six by four feet wide. Tall and deep enough for furniture, but the right size t...

Re: More Stuff

Now, careful and selective use of DDT (e.g. cautious, limited spraying of indoor surfaces) does still seem to have a useful role... Exactly. Interior and other specialized uses could have mostly eradicated malaria, and was doing so at the time it was banned for all uses. Baby v bathwater. Even thal...

Bah. Bed bug infestations are more proof the DDT ban was overreaction.

When I first heard the line about "The corn was as high as an elephant's eye," I thought -- that's what, maybe 3 inches? Four? Why are they so happy about it? Was there a drought last year?

Followed the search to the wiki for Madman Muntz and saw the Muntz Jet - a snazzy looking car indeed! But geez -- 4000 lbs with a 160 hp engine? That's what -- zero to 60 in, like, today? It did look good, though, sort of a cross between the early Ford T-Birds and Citroen of that era, all behind a h...

Re: More Stuff

The stories about removing parts until they (sort of) work remind me of a Navy Electronic Technician story I heard: Seems the new guys were troubleshooting a radar system which was behaving very badly. They'd get one module tuned up and another would fail - fix that and a third would go sour, poppin...

Re: Update 2019-06-28

I have a very unusual First Name and an alternative spelling of the more otherwise common Last Name. One time, when I'd gotten pulled over for driving too fast (and getting pulled over for it), the cop wrote my last name as what he assumed it was spelled like- and I corrected him. So he added "AKA"...

Re: Racehorse Legs!, and Ala Mode to boot!

Good stuff!

And I just noticed that Photobucket has returned the images to the Fan Art thread! Of course, they just HAD to watermark them with a big blob letting you know that Photobucket hosted the image, but at least the stuff is still visible! Yay (mostly)!
