Re: Devil Gal Kneeding 2021-01-22

Some days I still miss kneading dough at the bake shop, and it's been *ulp* 17 years? It was cash under the table one winter when I was between camps in the publishing gulag. No stress unless you backed into an oven or dropped something on your foot. It was a lot of fun. Sadly, no succubi, though. N...

After the heart attack, my brother was satisfied that the cardiologists were absolutely sure of what they were doing.

Obviously, because they used nitroglycerin. :mrgreen:

Re: Back On Topic 2021-01-11

. . . I've had good results dealing with folks like Grainger and McMaster-Carr. if they stock it, the quality's going to be dependable. However, even with their fairly broad stock of spark-stuff, they don't always have dilithium crystals in the size you need. And they only stock the common radioiso...

Re: More Stuff

There was a freak incident here some years ago when the ground was very cold, and then there was a light mist or fog just about dawn. Flash-froze a layer of ice just millimeters thick onto the roads, and there were minor accidents all over the place for about an hour. This was not a normal ice storm...

Re: Back On Topic 2021-01-11

I get the feeling that this particular supply run will not be going to Home Depot. They never keep those sort of items in stock. Yeah. One time I asked where to find a 100-millicochrane engine and extra warp plasma for a model rocket. Followed their directions and ended up in the parking lot. :mrgr...

Firing live ammo - even something as feeble as .22 ratshot - in the kitchen ... or basement ... or attic is not generally regarded as a desirable action.
I knew kids who did shoot .22s in the house. That's a big reason why I decided not to have firearms.

Re: Video humor, parodies, musical or otherwise

Three years ago, I draped a towel over the top of the door to my cellar, so the cats can't trap each other away from the food (in the house) or the litter boxes (in the cellar).

They can open the door to the unheated room off the kitchen if it's closed but not latched.

Re: I'm about to nuke my hard drive(s)!

Wow. This is the kind of horror story that keeps me from even upgrading to Win10.

I'm sure you'll figure it out, but I'd throw the thing off the roof or put it out in the yard for the alley cats to piss on, or something.

I've owed Weird Al a beer if I ever meet him, back to the first time I heard "Another One Rides the Bus."

He has single-handedly saved an entire generation of accordion players from a lifetime of cruel abuse. :mrgreen:

Re: Given what they're likely to wind up with, it seems appropriate

Point of fact, yeah--we are convinced that the cellar does affect the wine, though maybe not as much if you follow industrial sanitation procedures. But we do aerobic primary fermentation for almost everything, and then put most of it in oak half-barrels (~33 gallon capacity) for a year or two, befo...

Re: Given what they're likely to wind up with, it seems appropriate

The HORROR! Got to tell ya, friends, there's a whole lot more than 15 gallons of homemade wine in my cellar. That's a ridiculously low limit for family use. Why these guys were doing it at the plant is another question. Those carboys are pretty standard for home fermentation and storage. Whether the...
