Re: Higher Education- commentary section

One hopes that the cookbook shelf at the grocery does not include "To Serve Man".

Re: Higher Education- commentary section

This story is also reminding me of an old Sidney Poitier movie... If that's the movie I'm thinking of, it was a real lulu of a tale... ... and it contained a lesson I really should have learned then: never trust an English cook with a jar of mayonnaise. The worst chicken salad Gwen and I have ever ...

Re: Higher Education- commentary section

There are some interesting potentials . . . I love the stapler trick! --FreeFlier THAT was based on an actual event that happened in an inner-city school where the 'rowdy class' was handed to an ex-marine who had an injury put him in a short spica cast. It was too good to ignore. This wonderful inc...

Re: More Stuff

One of the nice things about older appliances is that they're often more easily repaired than newer ones, if something does go wrong... and there's less to go wrong with them. More specifically, the older models are often electromechanical - motors and gears and switches, but not a lot of electronic...

Re: Full Disclosure discussion section

It's sorta interesting... over the past few months I've encountered a situation which is not entirely dissimilar to some of what the Sgt.Major went through. Life is imitating art, to some extent. As I mentioned elsewhere in the Forum, a friend of mine passed away in December... an older mechanical a...

There's just enough fanny there to misadventure a pinch... Fixed that for you. Pinching the derriere of a golem, without an explicit personal invitation to do so, could initiate a truly memorable Darwin Award ceremony. I mean, the pinchee might be feeling merciful enough to just poit the pincher (s...

Looking at her, I'm thinking that an interest in Hypnotic Brass Ensemble would be most appropriate.

Re: Squirrelly stuff - Server shenanigans.

Short story: T-boned by a pickup truck moving at high speed in May. Had to be out of the house by June 1st. (Negotiated an extra 2 months because of the accident). Currently in-between full 'move in' status, waiting on builders to finish what was supposed to have been done in January. (Even longer ...

Re: More Stuff

Aging is tough. We all do it, it's inevitable, but the consequences can bring some real hurt. I lost a good and close friend this weekend. Scott was 82. He'd had a severe stroke a couple of years ago, and survived only thanks to some urgent surgery by just-the-right-doctors at Stanford. His speech w...

So, who among the cast is likely to make the best curative soup on one sort or another? We now have two varieties suggested. My own recommendation would be for Chinese hot&sour soup - a big bowl of this is definitely good for what ails you. There are those who swear by menudo. I suspect I would ...

So, thinking about the topic of their discussion a bit... "Stone Tape" - ghosts, as memories of events "recorded in stone" and being replayed later. The memories can be encoded in a form of information-holding dark matter, or in the Akashic Record (which seems to be a field perva...
