...happy birthday rtc_id
What did miss rtc_id and hash brown boy give you for your birthday??
Thanks Beans. Much appreciated.
Mrs. rtc_id was told not to get me anything. The rugrats got me a watch. My old man got me the gift of meat (Omaha Steaks). Hashbrown Boy hasn't come through yet but his sister-in-law told me at dinner tonight that he called asking her what gear I've been asking for lately. Looks like I'd better TM him and let him know what I want before he gets me a strap-on or gallon jug of Brut or something similarly inappropriate.
What are Omaha Steaks?
Steaks from Omaha.
Gallon jug of Musk is on the way. I bought 2, saved one for a Christmas present.
i herd that it was johny b birhtday and frenchie b-day too friday so what are we going to do
Dude, you are a couple of months behind.
so how did the gallon jug of Brut work out??
A lot better than the strap-on. It's great for stripping the adhesive film that's left behind when you pull off those silly warning stickers they put all over bikes, food containers, power tools, pet supplies and the like. I've also found it attracts flies and mosquitos, so I have a bowl of it in one corner of my yard. In the evening, the kids and I go out to the "skeeter tub" and attack those f'ers with a hand held bug zapper. It's shaped like a tennis racquet with metal wires powered by a 9V battery. Pretty slick, we picked it up in Taiwan. Those Asians have some crazy sh*t.
I've also found that this stuff does make the local strippers (umm, sorry, Exotic Dancers - capitalization used out of respect that the artform deserves) think I'm quite the big wheel. The regulars typically smell of diesel, anti-sieze and sweat (human, I think). Then again, our gals take coins so little things like being all clean goes a long way.
It's not as flammable as the scent would indicate. Ran out of lighter fluid so tried the Brut on the old Kingsford. F'd up pretty bad because I couldn't get the stuff to light. My Weber was then suddenly engulfed by a black cloud of deer flies and mosquitoes the size of sparrows. Brut must catalyze charcoal into some kind irresistable insectoid pheromone. Out came the handheld bug zapper and we went to town. Being a mad scientist, I knew a wimpy 9V battery wouldn't be enough, so I grabbed one of my handy dandy 24V - 2A bench top power supplies I normally use to blow up integrated circuits (oddly enough, that's what I do for a living - no shi*t) and hooked it up to the capacitive tennis racquet. Holy crap, that did the trick. Bugs were blowing up like little fireballs. As luck would have it, the flaming diptera (the insect ordera in which mosquitos and flies belong) that landed on the charcoal did wind up lighting my pile. The brisket kind of tasted funny though.
So yeah, the gallon jug of Brut is coming in handy. Not as handy as that sophomore biology class I took at Medical Lake High School in 1985 based on the way this posting has turned out. Who'd have thunk I'd remember certain insect orders 20 years later. Wazzu Mille took the class too but I don't think he paid attention. By the way, here's something to throw out at your next nerd party - bees and wasps belong to the order hymenoptera. They get their name because their wings look like a membrane. A hymen is a membrane. Scientists are little jokey jokesters, aren't they?
More info than you asked for, but you asked for it...
Dude, you didn't take Sophomore biology in 1985. Didn't you graduate in 1984? That must be that new math you Idaho guys are using.:shock:
We need to work on your post counts.
Try posts like this.
It works wonders
Ask Zack in the Central Forum
See, I just added 6 more posts
Wow, the system actually tries to stop you from posting the same thing and makes you wait a few seconds. Nice try.
This is fun. I wonder how many squids do this time after time? Must be enlightening to get thousands of one/two word posts in over the last year. Ok, I'm done now.
2 more bdays have past since daniel posted this. the idaho boy wonder is now a big 42! ask him what he got this time.
