Hey, not sure if I'd hire that gardener... while he trimmed the bushes, he left the mess behind.

On a side note... dang... and the car was still running??? How many times have you made a sharp turn or something only to have the engine die in your car?

Before I played it, I thought it was a combination-lock bottle opener... like, you have to know the combination for it to work...

(I don't know, guys. Looks, it's been a long week, what can I say.)

Well, yeah, 'cause then the cars would just give you a speed boost...

Looks like a pretty good grade going down; could be coasting.

Wrong. If you're using the roadway and not on wheels, one should travel facing vehicular traffic.

Besides, the safety guys on this project painted a white stripe there for a safety zone. White stripes are highly effective, just like thoughts and prayers...

Good legal point, but aren't they on a wheel?

Good point, but the wheel isn't really in the roadway only their tiny little crushable bodies. Hey, I grew up our parents paid us to do stuff like that hoping, at the end of the day, to have one less mouth to feed. It built character.

My parents couldn't afford danger, we had to break into the textile factory after our shifts at the other one.

I think that bird's airframe is probably no longer air-worthy. I could see some serious pitch control issues.

ahsposo 06-04-22 09:03 AM

What is that ruminant? A springbok?

The air frame is probably OK, but the control surfaces may be in question.

Shimagnolo 06-05-22 11:33 AM

Cool. A few months back I was internet-studying-up on how to make a tubeless inflator from an old fire extinguisher
