    No word on the cause of the fire, in fact, no info whatsoever. You can't even tell there was a fire. Maybe I imagined the whole thing.

    A'yuh. Psilocybin tends to play those kinna tricks on a fella.

    I check the township's Facebook sites, the only things on there on the drunk drivers and embezzlers they arrested... they all worked for the township!

    You seem depressed, need to get something off your chest?

    Had a decent day of showing videos and talking about safety. Not to bad. if these guys get one thing out of this easy week, I hope they can remember how to link up the sena units. Holy ****, you would think I was trying to ask them to do cold fusion. I'm pretty stupid when it comes to technology ( and this is taking about ten minutes to hunt and peck type), but how many times do I need to show them. It's not that complicated
    After a six pack it turned out to be a beautiful day.

    Speaking of technology... I got this 67 pound beast via UPS today. Poor driver was taking forever to get it out of the truck, so went out and helped him. I've gotten major appliances in and out of the house with less work than this thing took. That's the lid of one of those military equipment cases that it's sitting on in the pic... that's what they shipped it in! So I got a free (very nice) case out of the deal, too.

    So, I spent about four hours figuring out how to run it, checking calibration, etc. and it took two Monster coffee/energy drinks (poor man's crack) and about 6 cups of coffee to figure out that I got a hell of a deal on it. I'll never complain about having to fiddle with the TV remote, again, when it doesn't seem to work the way I think it should. Hewlett-Packard engineers must have been drinking Dr. P's Koolaid when they came up with the menu/control system for this thing. My brain still hurts.

    I read through and discussed ansi standards with 19 other employees today. The whole damn thing. It was a very long day. Oh I wish I could get the glorious thought of the new ones coming out this year out of my head. I can't contain my excitement. Yippie

    He got a hell of a deal on it.

    Anyways, there's no way he can keep that Chevy of his at a steady 88 to generate the 1.21 gigawatts it'd require. We're safe for now. And to that, where's he going to find a PLUTONIUM powered nuclear reactor in nebraska?

    :laughing:

    No way I would post a pic of the Death Ray Machine or that chrome-plated Anal Probulator that I jacked off the aliens the last time they tried to abduct me from the parking lot of the corner Stop 'N Rob....

    It's actually an RF signal generator (sweepable) for doing radio work... so y'all were at least in the ballpark.

    I think I can buy some plutonium on ebay, these days, @acer-kid... they'll sell anything on there!

    Well, uh, actually, at the moment my eyes are crossed with ZZZ-Quil. I have been pulling off a fresh bottle since noon, got about half down now.


    Friday was challenge with the bridge being down but we pulled through, I upsold the job and had everything back on the tennis court by 5. Got a couple nice big hunks of an old redbud.

    Out a 4 am today and finished the plow route, without a drop to drink, at 8:30. First time with a good shotgun rider is the reason.

    I think we saw two baby eagles.
