  1. What you need for lockdown: adequate booze (dint under estimate), internet, comfortable chair, some private space for working/escaping, some good books (video gets weary), headphones, an intellectual project + resources, someone willing inside the bubble, must be more
  2. someone new has the Snags handle.
  3. So it was constructed by hanging the frames from the ceiling?
  4. If S&S want to borrow a boat to get into the challenger series, why not borrow(?) Defiant? Then the made in country issue evaporates. edit: oh - already suggested...
  5. How about doing something with this... https://vancouver.craigslist.org/van/bod/d/parksville-vehicle-passenger-ferry-for/7148347305.html
  6. I've heard... that this method only became fashionable once the gas companies shifted from coal gas to (whatever it is now) and the mortality of sticking your head in the oven dropped. then they made the car exhaust less toxic, so I guess now its drugs and guns or Covid parties
  7. a wine is enhanced by the glass it is served in, where it it served, and the company that shares it. That is never more evident that enjoying a cheap chianti in a polo cup whilst in the presence of a beautiful, available, semi-clad twenty something who's making kissy faces at you. You'll remember that wine forever
  8. no more just skidding down on one's arse?
  9. I recall that Ponsonby has about 4 inches of soil over clay. I could feel the neighbours walking down the hall two houses over. The clay is like a trampoline, and those old homes are paper thin.(though there has to be a bunch of concrete and steel in Glen's to be able to open those doors more than once.
  10. i thought TOR obfuscated the endpoints and encrypted the content. is that not right?
  11. gives it that nice syncopated rhythm
  12. Art on boats (if its a Picasso) also runs into challenges of importing (or exporting/stealing) national treasures. Customs, duties, police, impounding ... Not my kind of problem, but so I've heard...
  13. really, workbench for the man cave and no one has cited this slipping
  14. heck, and i thought the humor was in jamming that into a single paragraph. distanciation wow.
  15. I happened to be in Milan years ago leading up to the Italian Grand Prix. I got on the train, got off at Imola and walked into a strangely vacant track. Turns out i chose the wrong weekend. So instead, I sat in the stands and watched Senna and Mansell rip around the track. In the glooming of the evening, I remember the glow from the discs popping as they braked for the hairpin. Memorable day.
  16. It's kinda like the three breasted woman - a little confusing to look at but you cant help thinking about how much fun it would be to ride it
  17. crossing the Knight St bridge (motorway) early one morning. Recent work on expansion joints left the joint with a heavy (1") metal plate over the joint. Resulting in a minor bump in the road. Driving along slowly overtaking a semi who was on the inside lane. Noticed that ahead, some idiot is slowing down for the plate in the semi's lane. Like stopping. I glance up at the semi driver, he's texting. I was driving a POS automatic Chevy Cavalier at the time. Either I brake and watch the impending collision, or accelerate and get ahead of it. I was now by the semi's front wheel so floored it,
  18. Sounds like a bunch of old gezzers speaking to an empty auditorium. Where's Mr Duggan? If an old geezer rants in an empty room, does he exist?
  19. Mate and I diving his V8 Commodore north with his ski boat in tow. Trundling down the forestry road - straight as an arrow for ages, speed builds up. Then suddenly its right into swithcbacks. Get through the first one, drifting through the second but all pear shaped for the next. I remember asking myself as we went off the edge of the cliff - I wonder whats behind that fence down there? Never found out. The trailer grounded and got hung up on the edge. Car is dangling by the tow ball. Clambered out and hiked down the the nearest farm house. It was Christmas eve, he was home, so got his tr
  20. maybe its a sign of the times and they have merged and jumped the species barrier
  21. are those big cleats or baby bull rails?
  22. "Found it in the forest" - is that synonymous to "fell off the back of a truck"? It is nonetheless a veritable cornucopia of bits and bolts and solar panels... What kind of forest encourages that kind of wanton littering?
