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.

Re: A Steal at $28K

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.

Re: Schtupid Email Scams

Drilled dice, where the number spots are recessed holes in the surface, are not "fair" dice because the weight of material removed (usually plastic) is not even on each side. The one spot has 1/6 the weight removed on the six side, for example, making it slightly "loaded". That said, professional, f...

Re: Schtupid Email Scams

Remember, Average Intelligence means that at least half the population is stupid. Depends highly on your definition of stupid. Lots of people have never seen snow, and don't know what number is down on a dice roll of 8 with 5 and 3 showing. Sir Thomas Tom of Appledore multiplied as far as four, and...

Re: Schtupid Email Scams

Got a call today - from myself! according to Caller ID. No message on the recording. I wonder why they think anybody is going to believe a call that is an obvious lie from the initial contact....
