    I was going to respond that my favorite, when I was around 12, was the baluchotherium... but a princess riding an elasmotherium... Sorry, I see someone in opera-style valkyrie clothes... it's a WABBIT.......

    Sorry, I'll take my old family practice (GP) in Chicago over any of your "primary care providers". Of, course, he started doctoring in the late eighties/early nineties, in the middle of the HIV epidemic.......

    No, the worker-student-academic alliance! (needs a bheer)....
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    The few times I've most $10k or more, I never had to fill anything out. However, there's a 10 day, I think, period were you cannot access the money, while they investigate. Money laundering, y'know....

    Life and Death in the Great Depression - sounds like a lot of people were being worked to death, and in utter terror of losing their jobs....

    "Piers Crowman"? A search gives me some TX country singer, Mike "Crowman"......
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    The obvious answer is to make two kinds of money: plebian money, and Real People money. Give them all the Real People money. With them in a large valley, and the money dropped on top, by the ton. With pallets,...

    "Recently"? In 2000 or 2001 - I forget which year, my son was driving out car, coming back from the Chicago 'burbs, when the engine caught fire. My insurance company had to pay (car was too far gone by the...

    Simple: ask him if he's prepared to pay 100% of all additional medical bills, and, if necessary, for any funerals resulting from his visit. For example, a nice coffin cost me about $1300 to effectively *RENT* in 1997 (my late...

    Musk can take the GOP as well, and go there himself....
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    Before I get started commenting, I'd like to offer some good stuff: this past weekend was Balitcon. Now, since we had a) two months to figure what to do, and b) BSFS, which puts on Balticon is a *large* club...

    I'll help with Murdoch. Please.......
  • Commented on I ain't dead
    Forgot to mention: the only things wrong with my current bike are a) I needed a larger frame - I think it's 19", and I need 21", and 2) it's a racing frame. For those who don't know, front fork...

    Several hunters were bragging about how far they'd been able to bag a deer. One was saying 100 yards, another 200, and a third, half a mile. Finally, they turned to the old man. "And how about you?" "I load...

    Ok... can you tell us what the officer saw that they let you go? Or is that you'd have to kill us if you did?...
  • Commented on I ain't dead
    Back in '75, I rode away from work, north side of downtown Philly, and was turning the wrong way onto a small one-way street, to get over to where I needed to be. Unfortunately, a couple pulled out of the...

    Saw that. One wonders even more... and he'd represented other women....
  • Commented on I ain't dead
    Must be a nice market. Between the end of July, '01 and mid-Jan '06, I worked a total of, I think, FIVE MONTHS, one of which I never got paid for. That's sending out anywhere between 1 and 10 resumes...

    Eggs - a lady I lived with in the late 70's got me into rinsing the eggs off before breaking them. Still do it....
  • Commented on I ain't dead
    Right, of course. The Home Despot near me seems to be shorter on drywall - this is all inside, model train framing, and bookcases. And the last time I picked up a box, the damn things have *square* holes, not...
  • Commented on I ain't dead
    Humph. I did two whole brisket in my now-broken-in Oklahoma Joe bbq, 14 hours, then another 5 in the oven... and then the two of them, still wrapped in foil, in a "cooler" for another 8 hours. WONDERFUL brisket. Oh...

    Oh, yeah? Well, *my* chainsaw is wimpier than your chainsaw.... If I need to cut something thicker than 3"-4", I'll pull out my double-bitted axe. Yes, I have one. Back in the seventies, a tree came down in an ex's...

    Actually, in the US, all lug wrenches, including the lug wrench/crank for the screw jack are lug wrenches. The four-armed ones, that deal with four different size lugs, are star jacks (as I type that, probably as in jacks, the...

    *shrug* I've got a chain cleaner, really need to a) dig it out;b) clean my bike; c) get a chain for the other bike* for Ellen to use; d} use the SAE 80/90 gear oil to lube. I wasn't 30...

    I refer to them as drywall screws. They've a narrower shank, and *much* sharper threads, than traditional wood screws....

    NOW we're gettin' into a Religious Argument. I spent 7 mos, about, in N. Wilkesboro, NC, tried bbq, and no, thank you, I don't care to drink that much straight vinegar. An' I like brisket, like the two I did...

    And here I heard that the stunted cords were US-imposed "for safety". Riiiight. Meanwhile, when I was getting servers for the US gov't, and we had 5,509 power cords from surplussed servers, the one time I tried ordering one with...

    Ok, there are Wegman's somewhere - they're not all over. Point being, you just do not see the UHF milk in the US, it is very much not commonplace....

    "Dismal results"? These days, when I get to making bread (not often), I pull out the breadmaker and set it to dough, since I like a real crust. If I use half whole wheat flour, it *does* need more water,...
