    I'd like to thank the previous owner for...

    That is exactly what happened. But I did bark my head on it once before I cut those suckers off. I wonder if the PO replaced it just before I bought it, or if he had it like that for a while.

    I would like to thank the PO for using bolts 2" too long to mount some turning blocks on the deck, which coincidentally happened to be just above the entrance to the head.

    Movies that messed you up as a kid

    Yes, "The Birds". I'm not sure if it was the pecked out eyes, or my mom walking in and screaming. You see, she had orithnophobia and my mom wasn't one to ever show fear, but that blood curdling scream when I was about 6 haunts me. And of course the goddamn flying monkeys from Oz. Mind you, they were kinda birds with teeth.

    It must be so frustrating

    Thank you, duly noted.

    He shoots he scores. Taliban sign truce.

    Make dinner at home. Give them cards and chocolates. The restaurants are going to be packed tonight. Or order pizza!

    Darwin strikes again

    That has to be one of the best illustrations of hiking the coastal mountains I have seen. On some mountains there are only a few viewpoints where you can see anything beyond the third picture, and the terrain is not a constant slope. When climbing one of these mountains, you are really scaling a series of ridges, meaning to get to the top, you don't just climb, you go up and down constantly, which when combined with only a few hundred feet of visibility, can make it very disorienting, as without a compass/map or GPS, you can't tell which way you are going.

    Arabic Numerals In Our Schools

    That is a very interesting graph. I get he was a pretty obscure figure - Christians don't like to bring him up as he proposed the Big Bang, and Atheists don't like to bring him up because he was Catholic, I would have guessed that the answers would be more partisan than they are.

    Ouch. I feel your pain, Tom. I sometimes make half-hull models out of wood I scrounge and donate them to charity fundraisers. They aren't too hard to make, and if the materials are scrounged, I get a few days entertainment, the charity gets something to auction off and it keeps crap from going to the landfill. I recently had some electrical work done around the house, including some work in the crawlspace. I came home from work, and thought I would crawl down there and see how things went. I had recently scrounged two solid maple table leafs, which when glued together, would have made a perfect backboard for a half hull made from some scrounged 100 year old mahogany. When I got into my crawlspace, I found one of the leafs screwed into a floor joist to mount an electrical box. The worse part is the damn sparky had to move some fir 2x6's out of the way to get to the maple. Oh well, at least I didn't buy the maple.

    Asshats Invade Kentucky Capitol

    I can't think of anything more Russian looking than an camo tracksuit with an AK47. Maybe if his ammo pouches were filled with Vodka bottles.

    Choosing Canada's new Conservative leader

    I think he is doing better because it is a minority government. He's on his best behavior.
