Finally got settled in at the vacation rental last night. Sunset was pretty awesome and Iím not going to complain. Iíll get some bicycle exploring in today hopefully. Lots of gravel fire roads, should have brought my other wheels.

The electrician assumed they were bad units and just replaced them, but finally called tech support and, Oh yeah, known problem! The gizmos just brick the second or third time you turn them on, but we saw no reason to, like, tell anyone. Now we are waiting for a software fix with no timeframe. We may just fire the money cannon again, pull someone elseís proprietary cable, and put something else up there before we go cruising in September. Reminds me of the stupid power meter pedals that never worked.

Well that'd be a pisser, yeah. Sounds like the barometers on the tri watches - they're known to die in chlorine, which is kind of an issue for... triathletes. Never acknowledged, but they replace them, so we're waiting to see if the failures continue with the 955/255. The pedals worked for AG, though I do think Quarqs are much better. The issue is, in the watch space, Coros and Wahoo are far behind. And Apple in different ways.

Stumped. I have the second and third letters and can't figure out the first. Maybe it will come to me through the day

Nothing. That's why it's not polite to refer to them as Hunkys.

Well right, but when no one else here had any idea that was rude... "hunky" is going to get said a lot. Generally as a positive, even.

I hope I can ride it again someday.

I hope so too!

His is a supersix I believe. Not CAAD.

I didn't spend that long on it, but some agonizing was endured.

I wish would've started a spreadsheet with all the words I've been surprised were in the word list when I guessed them and it actually took them.

I tried to Spoiler this, but when I try the Spoiler function, it says "Illegal Characters" or somesuch.

Today I found out WHAMO is in the list

I am aware of that term. Generally pejorative like the words for Italians, Irish, Polish, Germans etc. It's rather archaic, used through the 60's but proably faded out during the 70's. Also, its ethnic not racial but doesn't make it ok. I grew up about 70 miles from Cleveland. I'm sure it was used in the industrial North/rust belt - a popular destination for Eastern European immigrants around the late 1800's to early 1900's. I'm not sure where you grew up (New England) or your age (born around 1980) factors into why you've not heard of it.
Both sides of my family came over "on the boat" around 1900 from eastern Europe. My mom's dad was born over there.

Ok, I should have been more specific "no one in the initial group of respondents". Hardly like... certain other words. And I tend to know a lot of the words. Interesting.

Point is though, there are outright-no words, and contextual-no words. Hunky is clearly in the latter.

LesterOfPuppets 08-14-22 11:49 AM

Motion to add hunky to the censor



:)

LesterOfPuppets 08-14-22 11:50 AM

We need to save hunka though,

cuz I'm just a hunka hunka burnin' love.

iPhones die in chlorine, also. New ones are supposedly water resistant but they arenít chemical resistant.

I saw a 1962 4 door Impala like this one, including color, at Church today. I was surprised at how "small" it was.
