One Of My Very Own
MAYBE THE LAST BOOKSHELF TOY BOX UPDATE
It is required that toy boxes have closures to keep the lid from falling down on the child. I put two of the normal closures but the lid was too heavy.
Then I put a pneumatic closure on the middle brace. Now it stays up and when closed eases itself down.
My wife helped me carry it inside. I positioned it so that I have a view of it no matter how I enter the room.
BTW It is very heavy.
SHIT! SHIT! SHIT!
I put that in the wrong blog post and now you have the ending before you are due to be shown the how. Oh well.
WE CAN DO BETTER
I love America but it is far from reaching its full potential. We can do better is all I'm saying.
This is what you build when your goal is to be able to say a year later that bike lanes don't work.
I don't know very much about that but fuck the CCP anyway.
Read that again.
It's not only the state-sanctioned murder of one of its citizens it's also been proven that the death penalty does not deter murder.
The longest drum solo was 10 hours and 26 minutes and was performed by the child sitting behind me on United flight 964 from Atlanta to Paris.
Now, that is a Ford lover!
That last one illustrates a common error when children draw faces - they ignore the forehead.
The fix is simple. Just have them look at a face or picture of a face and draw the forehead first. Notice that it covers half the face.
I accidentally closed a browser with 43+ tabs open. This must be what the scholars of Alexandria felt when their library burned.
RATHER UNUSUAL HUMAN DOINGS
I asked a repair plumber what his worst call was and he said there was an old woman whose toilet drain had become dislodged years ago and raw sewage filled the crawl space. He told her he couldn't fix it.
In the South, we actually eat these.
Mudbugs, crawdads, crawfish, country boy lobster.
The tiny morsel of edible meat that a crawfish produces is located in its tail. When you're attending a crawfish boil or eating a pile of mudbugs at a restaurant, many people just pinch off the tail, squeeze out the meat, and eat it, leaving the crawfish head behind.
Do you eat the poop in crawfish?
Nothing wrong with it. I take it out most of the time, but I do eat some. That being said, most people who are disgusted about people eating crawfish poop line will still eat the poop line of boiled shrimp.
But the diehard fans do it differently.
When you suck on the crawfish head after eating the tail, the crawfish experience becomes truly transcendent. “The moisture and the flavor are all in the head,” says Underbelly and One Fifth chef Chris Shepherd. “Yes, the tail is the meat, but the head is the essence of life.”
*He's talking about sucking out the guts.
Do you want to guess what you are looking at?
Here's a couple of hints from comments...
"Be one with the wall."
"If not for the word "wall" in your comment I would have no idea what I'm looking at."
I posted this a while back and wondered if they were all painted that way. I got no reply but then I noticed something worth discussing.
Notice that the brush stays stationary as he rotates the ball under it.
I used to carve knives out of wood when I was a teenager.
I have mixed feelings about reading a book with a view like that.
Really? Why don't you film me doing something totally embarrassing and then show it to the whole world?
That's why you must cover up the overflow drain.
Anybody want to try and explain that to me?
Their Friday happy dance...
School teachers do shit like that all the time.
I'm assuming he missed the wire.
Threw out my back sleeping and tweaked my neck sneezing so I'm just one strong fart away from complete paralysis.
A RATHER UNUSUAL ANIMAL BEHAVIOR
"I've made a huge mistake."
Its murder gene is all-powerful.
These vicious little bastards are wreaking havoc across the whole country.
And remember, they are not wildlife. They were domesticated hogs since gone wild.
And then there's this lady...
Yeah, I hate when that happens to me also.
It's called absurdity and I embrace it.
Replacement teeth not included.
I also believe that thinking that Earth is the only planet with intelligent life - just because we happened to be born here - is an arrogance I can't condone.
Did you notice the brief eyes to the sky second he realizes that this job just ain't worth it?
