Re: Eeevill Overlord and Minion

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?

Re: More Stuff

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

I worked with the Navy on Guam for a few years back in the late 70s. I dare say that story is one of the career field staples.

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: Sic Transit Gloria Mad

Furshlugginer publishing industry . . . . No, more like Muggeridge's Law When Malcolm Muggeridge was the editor of the British satirical magazine Punch in the early 1960s, Khrushchev had announced he was going to tour England alongside its prime minister. Muggeridge wrote up a list of the silliest ...

And the link goes to some Argentinian website with XML cross-scripts to Belize and Kazakhstan. Yeah, I'll get right on that one....

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)!

Taz - thank you for reminding me about Port Chicago. All I could think of at the time were Halifax and Texas City, but couldn't recall the third.

Re: More Stuff

And of course, it's even worse when the stuff getting all poofy are actual explosives! During WW 1, an ammunition ship in Halifax, Nova Scotia went kaboom - 3 Kiloton worth -- the largest non-nuclear explosion ever prior to nukes. Hiroshima was 14 Kt, Nagasaki was 20 Kt by comparison. If I'm reading...

Boy wouldn't it be fun to go back to the 1930's and buy a bunch of $500 coupes to place in storage and resell today.

Re: A Passing

Even after all this time, I can't get over the lack of tact shown by my supervisor... Then there's the Army story about the Sergeant addressing his troops. "All you married men can have furlough this weekend. Not so fast there, Wilson!" Some people simply don't know how to break bad news to others.

I tried to order this once at a Greek restaurant and pronounced it "Spank-a-topia." Dyslexic, I am, know you.
